It was a very brave and bold move by the new Moldavian president Igor Dodon. He was invited personally by Putin to the St. Petersburg Economic Forum 2017 as one of the keynote speakers, together with the PM of India Modi and new president of Austria. Dodon made his 10 minute speech, which sounded more like a direct indictment to the West for interfering in Moldova’s affairs and trying to sell the country to Romania, to a standing ovation by some and to stunned silence by others in the audience. After the speech, Putin personally shook Dodon’s hand and commented on how he ‘ignited the audience.’
You may recall that I spoke about Dodon and made predictions about Moldova in some of my 2015-16 articles on FT and in Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
The situation in Moldova is developing as predicted. Have a listen to this important update.

Montenegro (Chernogoria) Crisis Explained! Rebellion Against NATO and PM Milo Đukanovic!
Presently independent, Montenegro is a former part of Yugoslavia and Serbia. Being located in the middle of NATO’s domain – the Mediterranean – next to other NATO members, having no army of its own and being a small country with not much of an economy, Montenegro has no strategic value for NATO whatsoever.
Because of that Montenegro had been left alone all these years. Suddenly, last year PM Đukanović announced that the country would be joining NATO. Why, you may ask, if there is no value to Montenegro being a NATO member?
There is one overriding reason: Montenegro’s economic and cultural ties to Russia! Due to the closeness of culture and mentality, lots of Russians go to Montenegro for Mediterranean vacations, many Russians have vacation properties there, plus, Russian business is a very significant part of Montenegro’s GDP. In fact, local economy only survives based on Russian business and tourism – take that away and people may starve.
And surprise! The announcement of Montenegro’s sudden urge to join NATO occurred right after Russia went into Syria and Russian jets managed to achieve in two weeks what US and allies couldn’t achieve in a year.
It became clear that the plan to drag Montenegro into NATO was an attempt to get back at Russia for Syria (and let’s not forget the ongoing quest to get back at Russia for Crimea and Donbass). If NATO bases and such move into Montenegro, Russian business and tourism would have to leave. As a matter of fact, it’s already leaving.
What was clear to me and many analysts, as well as the Russian government, wasn’t lost on the Montenegrin population either.
There are close similarities between Moldavia and Montenegro. In Moldavia Explodes! Anti-EU, Anti-Government Revolt, Parliament Stormed I wrote how Moldavian citizens rebelled against the government corruption, stolen $1 billion and EU association agreement.
Mass protests began in Montenegro around the same time as in Moldavia – October 2015 – and just like in Moldavia, they never stopped since. Both are small countries. While Moldova’s population is about 3.5 million, Montenegro’s is only about 600,000. People in both feel that their governments are crooked and that they are being dragged into certain Western organizations without being asked. Both are angry their governments are sold out to the US/West.
Montenegrin citizens demand resignation of PM and government, and national referendum on NATO. For some ‘strange’ reason both US and EU – these beacons of Western democracy – don’t believe the citizens of Moldavia and Montenegro deserve to exercise their democratic rights.
Protests in Montenegro have continued without any breaks since last October, despite cold winter. Thousands, and even tens of thousands, have been protesting daily. The government continues ignoring its citizens’ demands.
Montenegrin protests, and generally, the situation in the Balkans, is a part of The Big Battle for Eurasia! All this will be discussed in the upcoming ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. Stay tuned!

Putin Authorizes Gas Supply to Freezing Genichesk, Ukraine, After Kiev Cuts Off Own Citizens – Implications and Predictions!
The city of Genichesk, pop. over 100,000, located in the long-suffering Kherson Oblast near the border with Crimea, has been living with very limited gas supply for weeks. Cooking and heat are gas-based in this region. But in the past several days gas pressure dropped precipitously in the pipes. While the weather in Ukraine was unseasonally warm in the past month, suddenly the brutal cold at -20 Celsius returned. That’s when gas all but disappeared; the citizens have been freezing for 3 days.
The Mayor of Genichesk tried in vain to contact the Ukraine gas suppliers, and when no one replied, he desperately tried to call everyone in the Kiev government, including Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk. Again no response.
The only reply came in the form of a mocking post of one of ‘Ukraine’s leaders’ on his Facebook page. The citizens of Genichesk were advised to warm themselves up by speaking Ukrainian and singing Ukrainian songs.
The mayor of Genichesk then turned to the country his own now proclaims to be Enemy #1 – Russia. He contacted the Crimean supplier, Chernomorneftegas (Черноморнефтегаз) and asked them to send some gas from Crimea. Here is interview with Chernomorneftegas CEO re. the volume of gas supply to Genichesk – 20,000 cubic meters. He says that the volume is negligent for Crimea and won’t affect Crimean citizens: Черноморнефтегаз назвал объемы поставляемого российского газа в украинский Геническ.
Chernomorneftegas CEO contacted the Head of Crimea Sergey Aksenov (Сергей Аксенов), who in turn contacted Vladimir Putin, who gave final authorization. Interview with Sergey Aksenov: Сергей Аксенов: Жители Украины не должны страдать из-за решений своего правительства – Citizens of Ukraine should not suffer because of bad decisions by their government.
Reactions of the citizens of Ukraine’s Genichesk after they received gas from Crimea in this interview: Россия начала поставки газа в украинский город Геническ, жители которого страдают от сильных морозов. Citizens reactions range from: ‘Thank you to Putin, who saved us’ to ‘I know nothing about anyone and don’t care who did what, but thank god we have gas again.’
After the scandal received a wide-spread resonance, Ukraine govt immediately flooded the media with denials that Russia stepped in to supply gas to Genichesk. Chernomorneftegas CEO replied that it’s foolish to deny the obvious: the pressure in Genichesk gas pipes increased by 2.5 times as a result of Russia’s humanitarian aid.
In December 2015 Ukraine’s gas contract with Russia ended. Ukraine failed to renew it and pre-pay for the following period. Based on that Russia announced that gas supplies to Ukraine would stop. In response, Yatsenyuk announced that Ukraine didn’t need any more of Russian gas because they found cheaper suppliers in Europe.
In fact, Yatsenyuk (who has zero approval rating) is lying. See related post where Yatsenyuk and his friend Avakov are publicly and violently accused of stealing and corruption: Ukraine Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar. According to Ukrainian energy expert Dmitry Marunich, Kiev is buying reverse gas from Slovakia, Hungary and Poland – the same gas these countries previously bought from Russia. This gas, because of longer transport routes, is more expensive than direct Russian gas.
In fact, Ukraine can’t ensure sufficient supplies of gas, coal and nuclear fuel to its stations. The situation with energy in Ukraine is nearing catastrophic, and it will worsen in years ahead. It is especially disastrous for the citizens of remote from Kiev’s perspective areas, like Kherson and Genichesk, as well as Odessa and Nikolaev. Kiev doesn’t care about these areas and would let own citizens die, especially because they consider them pro-Russian.
The irony is that it is here, in Kherson Oblast and not far from Genichesk that Kiev ukro-nazis and Crimean Tartar Mejlis blew up strategic power lines in December, thus leaving the entire Crimea without power for weeks. Just a few days ago Crimean citizens in a poll said NO to further power supplies from Ukraine.
Now, Crimea gets all supplies it needs only from Russia. And yet, when asked for help from the Ukraine side, Crimeans said YES.
THE IMPORTANT IMPLICATIONS
The scandal with Genichesk gas supply is only the first in what promises to become a norm in Ukraine. The country is falling apart because of inept and crazy ‘leadership’ beholden to the US and EU, who only care about sucking Ukraine dry, while breaking all life-giving ties with Russia.
Recall my original Feb. 2014 predictions: Ukraine will start turning around in 2016 and by 2018 it will turn back towards Russia. Alas, by the time the turn occurs and due to the crazies at the helm, Ukraine’s economy will be destroyed entirely. The process will be slow and painful with the economic situation worsening gradually. See PREDICTIONS on top bar and early 2014 articles on Ukraine for more.
I also said that Russia would remold the situation slowly in her favor, while letting Ukraine citizens decide their future and act on it.
This process is unavoidable, however certain forces in Kiev, Turkey, EU and US/Canada try to stop it.
Here are new Ukraine predictions for 2016-17!
We are already beginning to witness how it will unfold. City by city, oblast by oblast, local authorities will be seeking ways to survive as Kiev sabotages its own population. Unilateral and secret economic agreements with Russia by separate oblasts and towns will continue intensifying into 2016-17. This will slowly eat into the amount of power Kiev has.
Incidentally, the same process is actively unfolding in the neighboring republic of Moldavia (Moldova), where central power is just as weak, albeit not as violent, and where local authorities are far ahead of Ukraine in making private deals with Russia to benefit their citizens. I’ll have some very juicy intel for you from Moldova and surrounding areas in the upcoming ESR9: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
A great example of what’s going on is Kherson Oblast, which is experiencing an invasion of ukro-nazis, Crimean Tartar Mejlis terrorists (the same who cut off power to Crimea), and most alarmingly, Turkish extremists and ISIL-Daesh militants. All the dregs of global society seem to have descended on Kherson Oblast in order to threaten the connecting Crimean Peninsula. These thugs terrorize, rape and burglarize the population.
Local citizens, having been left to suffer and die by Kiev authorities, are now organizing self-defence units to help those in need and to drive the roaming terrorists out of their villages and towns.
Eventually, ukro-nazis and their international terrorist cronies will be driven out of many areas of Novorossia by locals, be it Kherson, Nikolaev, Odessa, Zaporozhie, Donbass, Dnepropetrovsk or Kharkov. The result will be that they all will swarm on Kiev and western Ukraine, while others will go to Europe. It won’t be pretty.
Meanhwile, the gradual distancing of different areas of what is today Ukraine from Kiev will be happening slowly but surely, while Kiev will eventually lose its tax base and the support of much of the army and law enforcement.
Within the scope of this one article I can’t begin to tell you how many crucial Earth Shifting events, with potentially far-reaching consequences, are quietly taking place around Crimea and Black Sea, including Kherson, Odessa, Moldavia, Gagauzia, Pridnestrovie, and of course, what’s left of Ukraine; Caucasus: Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan; Balkans: Bulgaria, Serbia and Montenegro. Those parts are erroneously considered quiet backwaters and events there often are disregarded or deliberately silenced by world MSM. There are very few to no sources to find out what’s really happening around Black Sea. Meanwhile, this is precisely the part of the world which will help tip the world balance soon.
Projected release for both: throughout January 2016. As usual, reports will be posted on LadaRay.info and announced on FuturisTrendcast. Stay tuned!
