**Example of how lies are perpetuated is a comment posted by someone to recent post “So many? Really?” Germans do not know how many Russians were killed by their ancestors – and see our rebuttals and clarifications. I had to delete a number of even more disgusting neo-nazi trolls’ comments. The re-writing of history is becoming lately more and more disturbing!

WORKING ON SOME NEW CUTTING-EDGE EARTH SHIFT PODCASTS!
Russian paskha bread (called paskha in Ukraine and kulich in Russia) and pisanki – the beautifully hand-painted easter eggs
What is the Russian Easter called? The true word is Pascha – pronounced as ‘Paskha.’
This is the Russian spelling: пасха
The same word is used in various languages. There is a lot of forbidden history and linguistics that is behind this word, but I’ll leave it for my special posts on Patreon and for my Forbidden History workshops.
The day of the Russian Easter, or Pascha – a Sunday, is called: Svetloye Voskresenie.
This has a very loaded forbidden history and linguistics meaning:
Voskresenie is Sunday in Russian, but it also simultaneously means ‘resurrection’ or ‘rebirth.’
Svetloye, usually translated as ‘bright,’ also means ‘full of light.’
The Russian word ‘svet’ is a quintessential forbidden linguistics proof of how screwed up and falsified our history is, all discussed in great detail in my FORBIDDEN HISTORY
& FORGOTTEN ORIGINS webinars.
Therefore, Svetloye Voskrsenie means: Bright Sunday.
But it also means the Rebirth of the Light.
The day after, Monday, is called Svetliy Ponedelnik (Bright Monday), then there is Svetliy Vtornik (Bright Tuesday), and so on. The whole week after Pascha is called Svetlaya Nedelia – the Bright Week, or the week of renewal (I’d say the Enlightened Week would be a much better translation).
A Russian priest, who, unlike the Catholic priests, is not only allowed but encouraged to marry, is called Batyushka (Dear Father).
See how Russian Easter (Paskha) is celebrated: Happy Russian Easter! How, Where & What Happens: Moscow, Kiev, Jerusalem!
This is a link to the Holy Trinity Monastery in Upstate NY, the seat of Russian Church Abroad in N. America.
It’s usually called out first by Batyushka, or anyone really, say your neighbor, passerby or a friend may greet you this way during Pascha.
They call out to you: Khristos Voskres(-e)!
It’s spelled like this in Russian: Христос воскрес(-е)!
This means: Christ is Risen!
The answer is: Voistinu Voskres(-e)!
In Russian: Воистину воскрес(-е)!
This means: Truly, He Is Risen!
If a neighbor or friend greets you like this and you answer, usually you kiss each other on both cheeks three times as a sign of the sisterly/brotherly love.
Why ‘e’ is in parentheses:
Both with and without the ending ‘e’ is correct and widely used. With no ‘e’ is a more contemporary version. My observation is (but I never conducted any studies or polls) that in Ukraine they use it more without the ‘e’ and in Russia more with the ‘e’ – the old church Slavic language (hate it when they call it ‘Slavonic’ – I never do).
I think it’s a beautiful newer tradition, which is only about 1000 – 1200 years old. But there is so much more to the story… there were much more truly ancient, beautiful and mystical traditions, which existed well before Christianity, and they are discussed in my FORBIDDEN HISTORY & FORGOTTEN ORIGINS webinar series!

Reblog from LRBlog: Found this by accident on Amazon – very funny, check it out!
I don’t mind it, as long as this is legit. This in innocuous and for as long as they sell a good product and it shows the good of Russia, I say why not!
BUT! Stay tuned for another post (coming March 29) about how YT manipulates subscriptions and how it unsubbed me from RT, subbing me without my knowledge to Fox channel. That’s not cool.
Same can happen to me any time, so it’s a great idea to stay in touch by subbing to my multiple sites and visiting them regularly, in case someone decides to manipulate settings. See list of my sites at the bottom of the original post on LRBlog – link below!
This has nothing to do with me and I do not sell nor promote it. Found it by accident when looking for a link to my books. This is the Amazon product page.

Flashmob in the front square of Leningradsky Vokzal – Leningrad Train Station, Moscow, Russia. A great 5 min glimpse of the real Moscow!
Song: Electrichka from Moscow (electrichka is Russian/Soviet electric train, usually travels short distances to suburbia or countryside). This non-polluting and efficient train was invented many years ago in the USSR and it is one of the most popular modes of transportation, along with trams, trolleybuses and metro. Way ahead of the ‘hybrid cars’ and solar panels in the West…

As always, A MILLION THANKS TO ALL MY DEAR PATREON SUPPORTERS!
I COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
One of our dear Patreon members Seeker has recently traveled to Moscow. Seeker comes from one of the most well-to-do and prosperous countries in the EU. This was a business trip, during which he represented his country at the international agricultural expo, and his view of the modern Moscow is from a rare perspective, that of a business traveler.
I’ve written a number of articles in the past, with pics showcasing various facets of the cool, traditional and historic Moscow (you’ll find them on LadaRay Blog, and some on FT). What makes Seeker’s contribution truly rare and invaluable is that you won’t glean the perspective he offers from me (since I am not a corporate business traveler), nor from any others, who do travelogs and travel videos.
The insider images are spectacular, especially those of the new Moscow-City architecture (aka, Moscow International Business Center)! Just love it!
MANY THANKS TO SEEKER!

That WAS inspired, even for non-fans like myself: Underdog Russia beats Spain! #Russia2018 #WorldCup
Even I, who isn’t into football (soccer), watched and re-watched the highlights of this match. #Russia2018 World Cup isn’t only the best organized championship in FIFA history, as even the Russophobic British and Swedish MSM are forced to admit. It also has a distinction of being the most memorable rollercoaster Mundial ever. Most favorites are out, including former world champions and celebrity teams such as Germany, Spain, Portugal and Argentina.
Meanwhile, World Cup’s biggest ever underdog, Russia, is proceeding to quarterfinals for the first time in 32 years, where Russia hasn’t been since the Soviet period. The game with one of the favorites, Spain, ended in Russia’s victory after the penalty round. But it could’ve ended sooner and even more convincingly in Russia’s favor if one of the Russian players didn’t commit a silly mistake, resulting in own goal accidentally putting Spain ahead. Yet, Russia not only managed to even out the score, but get ahead against the Spanish monsters team, referred to as the ‘red fury.’
Russia, rated 70, gained 60 points as a result – third largest rating advance in FIFA’s history.
Russia meets Croatia, who is also playing very well, in quarterfinals, and may the best team win. Even if Russia doesn’t win in quarterfinals, the Spain-Russia game will have made history. There is a talk of building a statue to the goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, who instantly became international celebrity after several major saves, including deflecting that famous last Spanish penalty shot with his leg. The whole team performed very well and a big credit goes to the new Russian coach Stanislav Cherchesov, who turned out to be a master strategist. You might say that finally Russians guessed correctly with the national team’s coach. For years, they tried to hire foreign celebrity coaches, to whom crazy astronomical sums were paid, only to get disappointed in their performance. Recently Russians made a decision not to hire foreigners as coaches any more.
Igor Akinfeev final spectacular save, which gave Russia the win over Spain, World Cup 2018
Oh yes, believe it or not, before this game FIFA rated Akinfeev as the worst player on Russian team.
Celebrations in Russia following big win:
I am not a big football (soccer) specialist, although during this FIFA World Cup we all have suddenly become experts, lol. I freely admit I’m not.
But what I am rather an expert in is geopolitics, including the geopolitics of sport. And of course, the big one: the Great Earth Shift. (Granted, Russia continues stressing — rightly so — that World Cup 2018 is far and away from politics, but honestly, come on…)
There are four major geopolitical and Earth Shifting questions:
- Why is Russia hosting World Cup 2018?
- When can we expect the usual Russophobic noise from the US/UK to begin that Russian team is ‘doping’?
- Will Ukraine/Poroshenko dare to attack Donbass during World Cup?
- What will be the consequences/benefits of this World Cup for Russia and the Earth Shift?
We’ve discussed and I answered in detail question number 3 in this Patreon report: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS: Ukraine, Poroshenko and Ukrainian Army (with many important updates & predictions)
And the rest?… Stay tuned for it!
I’ve selected these video guides around Moscow from two of my fave YT travel video bloggers, a Brit Graham Phillips and an American Nadine. They are very different in style, but they both know their stuff. Both of these vids get my nod of approval. They possess the right spirit and energy, and they are something I can recommend. Check’em out.
1: Moscow – A Guide To! (2018) – Москва – (2018) – Обзор! By Graham Phillips, British journalist and truth-teller, famous for his eye-witness reports from Donbass front lines and credited with helping to awaken the English-speakers to the truth about the war in Donbass and Kiev junta’s real nature.
Graham bought an apartment in Odessa just before the Maidan and Kiev coup. After 2014 he was unable to return to the city, where his life would have been in danger from the junta regime and ukro-nazis descended in numbers on Odessa. He later got word that ukro-nazis took over his Odessa apartment, expropriated it in other words, in his absence.
This video is a pleasant, lighthearted view of Moscow in the run-up to World Cup 2018.
2. what MOSCOW RUSSIA is REALLY like. From a young American’s (novice) perspective, but she means well and a nice footage. Also just to point out, Nadine made this film at the height of anti-Russian hysteria in the West, when everything was full of Russia-bashing, with distorted views throughout (well, except Futurist Trendcast and a few other good publications, of course). This in itself deserves respect.
Selfie with Putin: Presidents and Princes from S. Arabia to Paraguay, but Zero Western Leaders (2018 FIFA World Cup)
Putin – superstar. Let me take a selfie with him while I can. That was probably what the president of Lebanon was thinking. Putin didn’t mind.
On video below: a crowd of excited presidents, PMs and princes after watching live the opening World Cup 2018 match between Russia and S. Arabia.
All CIS leaders are there (naturally, except Ukraine’s Poroshenko) and Putin is using the opportunity for an informal Commonwealth meeting.
Silly me! I should’ve known: the promise of an interesting football (soccer) match is a fabulous pretext to lure the male half of the species to any event, lol. 😉
That said, four countries announced that their ‘leaders’ would boycott Russian World Cup, and these are: Ukraine, Poland, UK and Iceland. This is no joke, they are boycotting the games in all seriousness, although they fail to notice they are in fact isolated, not the other way around.
Although this wasn’t a joke, some good jokes do come to mind in this regard…
Despite the British politicians beating in hysterics, the UK team still arrived, and Russians are treating them with the usual utmost hospitality. But I heard the British players were afraid to try the traditional Russian karavai bread, presented to each team as an ancient Russian hleb and sol’ (bread and salt) welcoming ceremony. Rumor has it they thought Russians added ‘novichok’ to the dough, lol. Other teams had no problem eating the welcoming karavai – it must be a UK-specific problem. (Just to clarify, in case someone missed it: this was a JOKE).
Jokes aside, as a result of the karavai fiasco, UK team became a target of jokes among other teams. Generally, the UK team somehow, in a very bizarre Inverted Collapse kind of way, is reminding me of the old Soviet paranoia. When Soviet people were allowed abroad, they would look around suspiciously, afraid to try anything and seeing spies everywhere. It’s sad how far the West has degraded. And that’s the GREAT EARTH SHIFT, baby!
TIP: By the way, when in Russia, if you are presented with a welcoming karavai, aka, hleb and sol’, it is a great honor. It is polite to pinch off and try a small piece of bread, dipping it in a bit of salt. It’s considered very rude to refuse, but I guess the Brits missed the memo.
An interesting echo to my previous big report: Armenia Maidan Paradox: Why New Pro-West Armenia Government Pledged Allegiance to Russia & Eurasian Union? :
Armenian PM Pashinyan is also in Moscow, second time in less than a month. So is president on Moldova Igor Dodon (I’ll talk about him and Moldova’s shift next week on Patreon), along with other CIS/EAU leaders. Among other things, Pashinyan wrote on his Facebook that Putin introduced him to the president of Azerbaijan, which he values highly. As I wrote in the above-linked report, Azerbaijan and Armenia are in a state of cold, and at times hot, war over Nagorny Karabakh, with no diplomatic relations. Only Russia can help re-establish peace. Before Putin interfered as a peacemaker, the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan weren’t on speaking terms.
INTERESTING PRELIMINARY STATS FOR RUSSIA 2018 WORLD CUP:
11 Russian cities will host the games throughout the month. New, slick and cool infrastructure has been built in each city, including airports, stadiums, sports complexes, hotels, parks, restaurants, river cruises and more. The new FIFA president already announced that this is the best World Cup in the entire history of the event. Comparing Russian World Cup 2018 to previous World Cup 2016 in France: beautiful modern cities, great organization and well-behaved fans vs. riots, crime and mess.
The largest group of fans comes from… the United States. World Cup 2018 tickets have been sold to the US fans: 92,000. Who said that soccer isn’t popular in America? Perhaps it matters who’s hosting it?
English subs – Various world leaders flock to Moscow, but no Western leaders?.. Must be a coincidence — NOT

Major official announcements about new Features coming next week!
BREAKING from Moscow!
Keep THIS in mind if you are ever looking for the US embassy address in Moscow! IF you hope it’ll have a normal, dignified Moscow street name, think again. The response to all those crazy anti-Russian steps by the US/West is so overdue that it has stopped being funny. The renaming has begun as a response to all those hostilities we have observed lately. When you want to blame someone for the result, look no further than Washington!
BREAKING! Russian Duma is considering new proposal from LDPR (a Russian party, not breakaway Donbass republics) to RENAME the address for the US Embassy in Moscow to… ready for this?! .. No.1, North American Blind Alley, Moscow. Russian: ‘Severoamericansky tupik.’
This mild English translation, ‘Blind Alley,’ is kinda too toothlessly nice, in my view. The Russian word ‘tupik’ is really translated into English as “Dead End.”
Therefore, the address should read in English: ‘No.1, North American Dead End.’
The current postal address of the US embassy, The Bolshoy Devyatinsky Alley, will be discontinued since it no longer fits the essence of said establishment. Well, I agree, sorry to say. When in Moscow, I personally will try very hard to bypass said building located in the North American Dead End / Blind Alley!
Just wanted to include this breaking news as well. The EU is keeping up with the US very well in terms of Idiocracy plus! This time it’s the Dutch who have distinguished themselves… Oops, one can even lose a job, imagine that!

Happy Epiphany Sunday!
I received a ‘Happy Epiphany Sunday’ email from one of my American followers, and decided, why not post a few of heart-stopping Russian Ice Dip Epiphany moments, plus a Russian language challenge! Enjoy!
**Per Russian Orthodox religion, the Epiphany ice hole dip washes away your sins. If we think of ill health and bad emotions as sins, or vice versa, if we think of sins manifesting as negative energy or ill health, this is certainly spot on.
Incidentally, by rules you’ve got to dip 3 times — only then it counts.
This miracle ice dip resets your immune system and clears all ailments for years to come. But don’t try this at home if you don’t know what you are doing! (And certainly, never do it without clearance from you physician.)
Putin takes Epiphany ice dip at Nilo-Stolobenskaya Pustin’ male monastery (northern Russia) on pristine Lake Seliger, to the enchanting monks’ chanting. If you think it’s cold in Moscow, it’s much colder there!
RT post with addl pics (Rus) LINK
LEARN RUSSIAN CHALLENGE! Say it in Russian:
Владимир Путин окунулся в прорубь на Крещение — “Vladimir Putin okunulsia v prorub’ na Kreshchenie” (Vladimir Putin took an ice dip on Epiphany)
Russian text (fr RT) Владимир Путин посетил мужской монастырь Нило-Столобенская пустынь, где принял участие в праздничных купаниях на озере Селигер. Крещение отмечается в православном мире 19 января. Ночью верующие окунаются в проруби в память о крещении Христа.
US ambassador to Russia John Huntsman also took a dip near NovoYerusalimsky Monastir’ (New Jerusalem Monastery).
**From one of my followers, Ayerie:
Thought you might enjoy this. Lucky Louis prefers to ride instead of dip. Happy Epiphany Sunday, Lada!
