In today’s hugely surprise announcement, the Head of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexandr Zakharchenko announced the creation of the new sovereign state of Malorossia, to replace the failing state of Ukraine. The announcement was made in the presence of representatives of all remaining 19 regions of Ukraine.
Video with full Malorossia announcement by Zakharchenko:
Malorossia translates correctly as ‘Russia Minor’ (not ‘little Russia’ as some do). This designation was assigned to differentiate it from the Great Russia, or basically, today’s Russia. The Malorossia region within the Russian Empire was formed by Catherine the Great around central, and partially, western regions of what we call today ‘Ukraine.’ The historic Novorossia (New Russia) was formed our of southern and eastern regions of today’s Ukraine, also by Catherine the Great.
The proposed flag of Malorossia will resemble the historic flag during Bogdan Khmelnitsky’s rule of Malorossia. The national hero of Ukraine, Cossack leader Bogdan Khmelnitsky, approached Catherine the Great, asking her to accept Malorossia along with ancestral Cossack territories called Zaporozhie (hence ‘Zaporozhskie kozaki’ – cossacks) as part of Russia. This offer of becoming a subject of the Russian State, in exchange for military protection against the Ottoman Empire’s, Crimean Tartar, Polish, Vatican and general Western invasions, was accepted. What we now call central and parts of western Ukraine became the new subject of the Russian Empire. By choosing the name Malorossia and the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, the hint is made that eventually Malorossia aims at re-joining Russia.
Zakharchenko even identified the term: 3 years. During these three years DPR, with the help of experts from Russia, Belarus and other countries intends to form tribunals for crimes against humanity and treason committed by various Ukrainian elites. Zakharchenko has stated that Russia will be asked to extradite ex-president of Ukraine Yanukovich, to be tried in Malorossia. Others to be put on trial after the transition occurs are Poroshenko, Turchinov, Yatsenyuk and a long list of others. The crimes of Kiev and associated nazi battalions and organizations to be exposed, including the ATO and the genocide of the Donbass people, the burning of people in Odessa, and others.
Zakharchenko announced that Malorossia will encompass all oblasts of former Ukraine, excluding Crimea. It is to become a direct opposite alternative of the existing ukro-nazi state formed under the Kiev junta. It will be a non-fascist, free of oligarchs, democratically loose confederation of former Ukraine’s territories, with only the flag, army and federal finances concentrated in the hands of the state, and with a lot of power left in the hands of local authorities. The principles on which the new Malorossia state is to be formed are friendship and mutual cooperation. (Remember, these are the 5D principles!). As opposed to dominant around the world and in today’s Ukraine, exploitation, oppression and inequality.
Most importantly, The new Malorossia project offers the citizens of Ukraine a clear alternative: to be again friendly and close to Russia, something that the Kiev junta has completely denied its population.
Zakharchenko proposes the rule of direct democracy. The decision to join Malorossia has to be up to each citizen and each oblast of Ukraine. For that, internationally monitored referendums have to be held in each region, city and oblast of Ukraine. Let the people speak, the right they have been denied under Poroshenko Kiev regime.
Zakharchenko declaration implies that the new state of Malorossia is to become the rightful heir to the former, pre-Kiev-junta Ukraine. The capital of Malorossia is to be in Donetsk, and Kiev is to simply remain a cultural and historic center.
LADA’S 2 CENTS
It’s clear that both Russia and Donbass are searching for a new and more successful format for the future of the territory we so far call Ukraine.
I like the new proposal. It makes perfect sense, helps exit the dead-end Minsk talks. Via an electric shock, it awakens certain processes and creative juices, and gives hope to the long-suffering population of Donbass. It also challenges the West, as well as Russia, to respond and act. It also establishes the fact that Donetsk is a subject, not an object, of global politics and various negotiations. It affirms that Donetsk wants to lead, not to tag along. I like it, and I wish them all the success with the Malorossia project. It has a future.
Another thing that comes to mind is that this announcement has taken Kiev and just about anyone in the world by huge surprise.
But it wasn’t really a surprise. First, remember what I’d told you since February 4, 2017 in Webinar 1: Will Trump Survive his First Term? I said that US was preparing and looking for ways to quietly disengage from Ukraine, without losing face. Remember I described the Kissinger Plan for Ukraine and post-Soviet Space?
What is happening here, and what happened recently, as I described in: Moldova President Igor Dodon Issues Bold Indictment to the West. Ukraine update — these things are closely related.
The old borders and outdated geopolitical formats, which failed to withstand the test of time, won’t work any more. We are in the midst of the Great Earth Shift. Anything that hasn’t been well conceived, such as the slapped together controversial territory called Ukraine, can and will be swept away. New borders, states and new international formats have to emerge, and they are doing so.
I can also tell you that a significant chunk of those 2.5 hour closed-door negotiations between Putin and Trump at G20 in Hamburg were dedicated to Ukraine, Donbass and how to get out of this stalemate. (Read G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions!)
Warning: Zakharchenko announcement has already made a big controversial splash, including in Russia. There are forces who don’t want this to happen. But a push for change is needed — very badly.
Another problem: Zakharchenko hasn’t coordinated his announcement with Lugansk (LPR), which is not good. And according to some sources, it wasn’t coordinated with Moscow either, which is possible, but a little hard to believe.
And problem No. 3: remember what I said in G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions! ? Russia is not in a rush to be saddled with the destroyed territory of former Ukraine and to deal with its zombified population.
Zakharchenko quote: ‘We’ve been told by Kiev that we must return back to Ukraine. Sooner Ukraine will return to us.”
Recall my timeline for Ukraine turning back to Russia: by the end of 2018. I don’t mind if it takes a bit longer, as long as it’s done, and done right.

Today Russian Duma banned money transfers from Russia to Ukraine through any banks other than Russian banks. This comes as an anticipated mirror response to 2016 ban of Russian payment systems on Ukraine territory. More details about the new law from NovorossiaVision.
Further, this move is a logical reaction to the escalating terrorism against Russian banks by Ukrainian Nazis, while the Kiev government either supports them or looks the other way.
In the past couple of weeks various ‘Ukraine patriots’ from fascist battalions, radical and ukro-nazi parties walled in, vandalized and/or looted several branches of Sberbank and four other Russian bank subsidiaries in Ukraine. Initially, most of these attacks took place in Kiev, but now they have spread throughout the entire territory.
Ukro-nazis marching in Ukraine
Kiev government added oil to the fire by ‘forbidding Russian banks in Ukraine from transferring assets out of the country.’
Attacks against Russian banks were openly supported by the majority of Ukraine Rada deputies, advisor to president Poroshenko, speaker of the Rada Parubiy, interior minister Avakov. Other names implicated in attacks on Russian banks include oligarchs such as Renat Akhmetov, whose properties were recently semi-nationalized in Donetsk and Lugansk (LDPR).
A few facts:
- Officially, there are presently 3.5 million Ukrainian citizens as temporary workers in Russia. The vast majority of them send money back home as the only means for their families to survive. Now they won’t be able to do that.
- Add to that millions of Ukrainians who have permanently moved to Russia and are considered permanent residents or naturalized citizens, but who still help out relatives in Ukraine.
- Money transfers from Russia to Ukraine amount to billions of dollars annually.
- According to official data, Russian banks constitute 12% of Ukraine’s banking system, however, I seriously doubt this is a true number. It is common knowledge in Ukraine that Russian banks are considered the only honest and solvent banks on its territory. Whoever can, prefers to keep their assets in Russian banks.
- 1 million 250 thousand Ukrainians keep their money in Sberbank alone. This includes pensions, assets, credits, etc.
- After several months ago Kolomoysky drained his Privat Bank and transferred stolen customers’ assets offshore, the once Ukraine’s biggest bank was nationalized. Privat Bank customers flocked to Russian subsidiaries as the only safe banks in Ukraine.
You may ask why Russian subsidiaries didn’t withdraw from Ukraine, despite attacks? It is a tough call, but I do believe they are correct to stay. Kiev juntas and ukro-nazi regimes come and go, but the people of Ukraine remain. It is a good idea to support the decent Ukrainian citizens, despite how tough it is.
As a matter of fact, I once heard Putin personally ask Russian banks and other remaining businesses to stay in Ukraine, if possible.
However, Kiev is doing absolutely everything to chase the remaining Russian businesses away and to provoke Russia into taking some drastic return measures. If Russia withdraws as Kiev ukro-nazis insist, it will be the final nail in the coffin of poor Ukraine, as its economy dies off.
I predicted this in 2014: ‘Ukraine’s economy will be completely destroyed before a meaningful change and turnaround can occur. After that, Ukraine will turn away from the West and towards Russia.’
Kiev Euro-Maidan fought for the ‘EU dream’ – and here it is…
Ukro-nazi ‘peaceful’ protesters violently destroying what’s little left of poor Ukraine
Burning people alive in Odessa (pic of Odessa tragedy: May 2, 2014)
And attacking the people of Donbass (on pic: Ukraine army loading heavy mortars to fire at civilian populated areas of Donetsk)
In their utter stupidity, ukro-nazis are doing everything to expedite the end. Perhaps that’s a good idea, after all. In Ukraine’s case the horrible end may be better than an endless horror.
But Russia has to tread softly, carefully calculating the risks. Incidentally, EU is in the same boat in this regard. Ukraine’s complete implosion threatens both.
One of the problems is that millions of Ukrainians will flood uncontrollably into Russia (and EU). Another problem, Ukraine may become a danger to others due to 4 major nuclear power plants on its territory. And problem number three: Ukraine’s destroyed economy has to be rebuilt, but no one wants to take responsibility. Technically, those who destroyed it should be paying for reconstruction, namely Ukraine oligarchs, Soros, US, Canada, Germany, Poland and EU in general. I’d also make Nuland, Obama, Biden and their cronies pay up personally.
But in reality, as I predicted in 2014, only Russia cares what happens to Ukraine and only Russia is capable and willing to help rebuild Ukraine’s economy.
Although, per my other prediction, Putin is smart enough to make the West chip in when the time comes.
Russia is now attempting to delay this unpleasant moment of ultimate destruction of her sister-nation, suffering from an especially destructive case of temporary insanity. However, it is unavoidable. Sooner or later it’ll happen. What we have to remember is that it is darkest before the dawn. But dawn will come.

DPR ultimatum to oligarchs: Pay taxes or nationalization. Russia recognizes LDPR passports; to introduce visa regime for Ukraine
The events surrounding Ukraine and DLPR are continuing to heat up and accelerate. Many interesting events are also taking place in the post-Soviet space and all over Europe. I promised you all a new Earth Shift Report on Ukraine. However, I’ve decided not to publish it, after all. There are many big projects I am working on, including my book THE PUTIN ENIGMA. Completing and publishing my book is my first priority this year.
Therefore, for the lack of time, instead of an ESR I am offering you a series of free articles and videos on Ukraine and Donbass. The short list of all recent pieces is at the end of this article. For more Ukraine/DLPR related pieces, including the ones I wrote between the beginning of 2014 – end of 2016, go to CATEGORIES: Russia and Ukraine on the right navigation bar.

Donetsk Ultimatum to Ukraine Oligarchs: Pay Taxes or Face Nationalization.
Will Russia introduce visa regime for Ukraine?
Yesterday, the Head of DPR Zakharchenko announced that on March 1 those Ukraine oligarchs whose properties and factories in Donetsk Republic are still registered in Kiev must re-register in Donetsk, or face nationalization. Till now, most factories and mines in DLPR have been producing coal, metals, chemicals and energy, while profits were enjoyed by the junta-friendly Kiev oligarchs and while taxes were paid by said oligarchs to the Kiev regime. In turn, Kiev used this money, as well as the energy and products manufactured in Donbass, to bomb the people of DLPR.
As of now, DLPR are losing billions of rubles on this scheme, not to mention the risk to the peaceful population. The public pressure on authorities has been tremendous. A warning was sent to oligarchs some time ago that they must re-register their ownership with Donetsk and Lugansk in order to pay taxes locally, instead of Kiev. The pre-announced end date for re-registration of factories in DPR was to be March 31; however, the timeline has accelerated.
The brutal bombings by Ukraine army, continued lies by the West and Kiev, cover-up of the true state of events by the supposedly ‘neutral’ OSCE observers, and the latest coal blockade of Donbass by ukro-nazi battalions – all this has expedited the shift.
No question, the nationalization of the Ukraine oligarch properties in Donbass will go ahead and very soon. Also no question, this bold move was agreed upon with Moscow. The move essentially means that Donbass plans to re-orient its economy and its trade to Russia. I can tell you more: knowing how Putin operates, the groundwork for the re-orientation of the Donbass economy have already been quietly prepared.
In turn, this means that DLPR are about to expedite the process of distancing themselves from the ukro-nazi Ukraine. Coupled with Russian recognition of the Donetsk and Lugansk passports by Russia (read below on that), this is a very serious shift.
Incidentally, the West, entirely preoccupied elsewhere, completely missed these moves. This is in line with how Putin operates.
Ukraine oligarchs and the Kiev junta, most notably Renat Akhmetov (ethnic Azerbaijani) who still owns half of Donbass, have been enjoying a free ride. While DPR and LPR are de-facto independent politically, the taxes from profits earned by the factories, power stations and mines in the break-away republics are still paid to Kiev.
The reason I pointed out that Akhmetov, once the richest man of Ukraine according to Forbes and now a nearly bankrupt oligarch, is Azerbaijani is not because I have anything against Azerbaijan or any other nationality. I believe we all should equally respect each other.
However, the ordinary citizens of what is today still called Ukraine (but won’t in several years) can’t help but notice that for some ‘strange’ reason the majority of the Ukraine oligarchs and much of the top politicians aren’t either truly Ukrainian or Russian. There are Jews, Poles, Georgians, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Americans, Canadians, western Ukraine Bandera followers. This fact creates an additional friction and blame game. By all definitions Ukraine today is under foreign management and foreign occupation. Under the circumstances, the infamous anti-Russian ‘Euro-Maidan’ slogan ‘remember foreigner, Ukrainian is the master here’ sounds like a bad joke.
It doesn’t help that the ukro-nazi junta killed off, jailed, scared to death or expelled out of the country anyone who loved Ukraine and who could make a real difference. Today the reality is such that the majority prefer to leave rather than stay and fix things. It’s especially telling how far gone the country is when the majority of the population can’t wait to leave it.
This is a small consolation for the people of Donbass, who are being bombed by vicious ukro-nazis. There has been a lot of protests against the Kiev oligarchs still owning half of Donbass. For a while both DLPR and Moscow have been reluctant to rock the boat, giving the chance to the Minsk peace process and possibility of reconciliation.
The problem, as we discussed in previous articles and video (see links below this post), is that the economy of Ukraine was built in the USSR and the Russian Empire in such a way as to logistically be closely and efficiently entwined. Energy and raw material sources were located in logistical closeness to production facilities. The high tech companies were placed where there was an abundance of educated work force, and all that was connected via rail to the Black Sea ports and transportation hubs for fast distribution. This well-oiled infrastructure built by generations of ancestors is very hard to change. It costs money, time and resources to re-structure and redirect the flow of goods to other markets.
For some time there had been a certain sliver of hope that a drastic scenario could be avoided. However, an urge to disengage the DLPR economy from Kiev influence has been strong. The authorities are now using a pretext of the ukro-nazi coal blockade of Donbass to push through the nationalization, which has been on the menu since 2014.
Simultaneously, the still remaining few ties with Ukraine are being severed, as Donbass continues distancing from Ukraine and aligning with Russia.
I again want to stress for those in the EU and US who have to do with decision-making and who may be reading this. Russia and DLPR proposed a compromise solution: the Minsk agreements. They hung on to these agreements, attempting to fulfil them despite Kiev bombings, only to be met with lies, anti-Russian propaganda and sanctions by the West. As always, trying to reason and make deals with the West proved pointless. Now the ship has sailed and the clock cannot be turned back.
Let’s recall that a similar situation occurred in Crimea. The decisive actions by Russia to sever all ties between Crimea and Ukraine took place after the Crimean Tartar terrorist battalion headed by Isliamov, together with ukro-nazis, blockaded food, water, and at a later date, all power to Crimea. The December 2015 power blockade nearly created a humanitarian catastrophe, leaving 2.5 million people without electricity and heat in the winter.
Up till that moment Russia supplied extra electricity to Ukraine at heavily discounted rates or free, so the needed amount of power would in turn be released by Ukraine for Crimea. During Soviet times the power lines, water and food supplies, as all infrastructure and economy of Crimea, were closely tied into Ukrainian grid for efficiency’s sake.
During power blockade, Russia acted swiftly to purchase Chinese power generators, build new power stations, as well as the underwater ‘energy bridge’ from mainland. This averted the humanitarian catastrophe. In the final analysis, it allowed Crimea to develop much faster.
The food and water blockades have also been dealt with.
The new railroad to bypass Ukraine is being built and the new Kerch Bridge to Crimea from the mainland is also being constructed. This mega- bridge, already dubbed ‘the project of the century,’ is a marvel of engineering based on its length, scope and the fact that up till now it seemed impossible to build a bridge in that area due to enormous distances, violent winds and deadly currents.
The Kerch Bridge will eliminate what’s left of deficiencies and create a tourism boom for Crimea.
For DLPR the process of distancing from Ukraine is also about to become irreversible, Minsk-2 or not. Minsk-2 peace agreement was in fact a way to slow down the war, restrain Kiev from the worst possible actions, and give more time to Russia and DLPR to regroup. Minsk was never a truly working platform and peace with the ukro-nazi version of Ukraine is not possible. Any meaningful change will only be possible after this junta is gone.
The only way to have it gone is to make the West loosen its grip on the poor Ukraine and stop supporting the destructive ukro-nazi/oligarchic regime in Kiev.
However, by the time it happens DLPR would be completely de-facto independent of Ukraine. The silly ukro-nazis through their blockade are only expediting this process.
RUSSIA RECOGNIZES DLPR PASSPORTS; VISA REGIME WITH UKRAINE NEXT!
A recent breakthrough: Russia officially recognized the DPR and LPR passports. This effectively means that people from these areas will have equal with Russians rights to apply for jobs, live and study in Russia. Up till now there was no way to tell a Russia-hating Bandera ukro-nazi sympathiser from western Ukraine, from a friendly Donbass refugee. Either could have arrived to Russia as migrant worker, carrying the same Ukrainian passport.
Recently, there was a very unpleasant episode in St. Petersburg that caused a Russia-wide outcry. In one of the city hospitals, Russian nurses on night duty noticed several migrant workers from western Ukraine, celebrating the death of the slain Donetsk commander Givi and wishing that Putin, Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky would be next. It appears these western Ukraine migrant workers were employed as low-grade nannies or care-takers. Givi, just like Motorola and others before, was killed as a result of Kiev junta’s terrorist act.
The outcry in the Russian society caused authorities to reconsider who and how they let into the country. As of now, at least 3-4 million migrant workers from Ukraine are in Russia. Many are normal and friendly to Russia people from the South and East of Ukraine. However, many of those who are Russia-friendly try to move to Russia permanently. The migrant workers, who arrive for a period of a few months on a temporary visa, then exit Russia and return again, are primarily from central and western Ukraine. Among these, there are many who make money in Russia, while hating the hand that feeds them and supporting the war against Donbass.
THE SHIFT UNDERWAY! I have to note the following important Earth Shift facts. The process of questioning who and on what premises is let into any individual country is presently being considered by many countries on the face of the earth. The old systems are not working well any more as the Great Earth Shift progresses. This is also the result of the Period 8 (we’ll talk about that in one of the future webinars). We will continue seeing the breakdown of pre-existing and gradual manifestation of the new systems, in all areas of life. The new systems will be based on different principles and they will begin materializing between now and the next few years, continuing through the following two decades.
The recent escalation of DLPR bombings and the present coal blockade of Donbass caused Russia to finally act. This is only the first step. The next step will be to limit the inflow of unfriendly to Russia work force from central and western Ukraine, while favoring the DLPR workers.
I agree with the prediction of this widely anticipated move: by recognizing the passports of DPR and LPR, Russia is preparing to install a visa regime with Ukraine. This will be a very healthy move for many reasons. Among them: it will limit the ability of various shrewd western/central Ukrainians to make 4-5 times their usual salary in Russia. Deprived of their usual incomes, said western/central Ukrainians will feel pressure to rebel and unseat Poroshenko’s regime in Kiev. In turn, the rebellion of the largely Bandera ukro-nazi regions will distract the regime and aid the people of Novorossia (presently Eastern and Southern Ukraine) to free themselves from the junta and foreign yoke. There may be a line of secessions, or similar outcomes, all over Ukraine.
An interesting bifurcation will also take place. Some people from the junta-occupied parts of Ukraine will begin acquiring DLPR passports as a desirable commodity, to have an entry point into Russia. There already have been inquiries from Odessa and other parts as to how to obtain said passports. Zakharchenko has thrown hints that it won’t be a problem. This tells me that DLPR will be used as a sorting ground, so to speak, to separate the wheat from the chaff within Ukraine.
By the time the Kiev junta is gone, the population of DLPR somehow miraculously will expand. This population will miraculously spread all over Ukraine’s territory. Before you know it, these people, for instance, will begin influencing the elections in their respective areas. The possibilities are many. The exercise of soft power may lead to a peaceful shift of the remaining territories of Ukraine towards Russia.
Another indication of the upcoming Shift in Ukraine:
In December 2016 Moscow district court recognized the February 2014 Kiev Euro-Maidan as an illegal coup d’etat. The complaint was filed by a Ukraine Rada deputy from western/central Ukraine, Vladimir Oleynik, who was never particularly pro-Russian and was at one point in favor of euro-integration. His position, if anything, was pretty wishy-washy and middle of the ground. However, even this deputy was forced to flee Ukraine by the junta and ukro-nazis, after he spoke up against the coup and the s0-called ‘euro integration’ contrary to the interests of his country.
The Moscow court decision opens a wide range of possibilities, such as announcing that the present government in Kiev is illegal, demanding international war crimes tribunal, going to the international human rights court, etc. This decision can be built on in various ways – more developments to follow in 2017-18!
PUTIN AND RUSSIA:
As you’ve noticed, Russia only reacts, never initiates. Every mistake by Kiev and their handlers is used to ever so slowly change the situation. Recall one of my many 2014 predictions on Ukraine: ‘Russia will use all quiet, peaceful and legal means to slowly rebalance the Ukraine crisis – until Ukraine shifts completely towards Russia.’ As we see, this one is also coming true, as we speak. (Recalling it, I just can’t believe how hard some people had argued with me on that! Such silly arguments are too tiring and they distract me from the important stuff.)
Putin is the grandmaster of the global 3D chess. He will act when no one expects, and his next move will be as winning as any other we’ve observed him make so far. As our Russian Bear says, ‘patience is the only way to win in the world of idiots.’
Putin has plenty of patience, but as the real grandmaster of the Eastern martial arts, he knows how to spring into action on moment’s notice. This is the way of the wise and highly developed souls: going from an absolute inner peace and immobility to a fast and effective action in a blink of an eye, when no one sees you coming. This is the winning formula.

Also from Lada Ray:
We are continuing the Ukraine topic.
Yes, the UN venue has been weakened. The new Russia’s UN envoy is, well… new. We’ll see how he performs – he may surprise us. For the time being Russia will have to make better use of other venues, others picking up the slack. Such as: Lavrov personally will have to engage more to navigate the global situation in manual regime. Incidentally, he has been doing it a lot lately. Just look at his appearance at the Munich Security Conference, as one example.
That said, the Ukraine Shift will be aided by the fact that the West is slowly disengaging from Ukraine, due to the US and EU domestic problems, and due to three years of hard diplomatic work by Putin, Lavrov, Churkin, and others.
Paradoxically, the worst case scenario: ukro-nazis seizing power in Kiev, would be the best and more expedient outcome. Should that occur, it would quickly demonstrate to the whole world how rotten the Kiev regime really is and what the Euro-Maidan was really about. The West would be forced to change its stance to save face and to somehow rectify the bad situation next to the EU borders. This would accelerate the awakening SHIFT timeline and free faster all those poor people still stuck under Kiev regime.
It would also likely make Ukraine citizens rise against the regime sooner.
But that’s exactly why this scenario won’t happen: the West won’t allow it because having a slowly and painfully festering thorn of anti-Russian Ukraine is a lot more valuable to both US and EU. That weakens Russia and the whole Russian World for as long as the wound cannot start healing. This also diverts much energy and resources to deal with the difficult situation next door.
No matter what Trump says, the idea of controlling Russia through Ukraine’s wound is much too attractive to just let it go. Therefore, I am rather skeptical about Trump moving much in the right direction voluntarily.
But – AND THAT’S IMPORTANT – what will ultimately force the West as a whole to loosen its grip on Ukraine are the actions of Russia, as well as people like you and me, Nemo: those who speak the truth and enlighten others as to the real state of affairs.
Another reason that Maidan 3.0 or any variation thereof, including the ousting of Poroshenko without elections, won’t happen is because the West already recognized the 2014 illegal coup, legitimizing illegal elections held by the junta, which installed Poroshenko. Another coup and another installed ‘president’ will completely delegitimize the entire Euro-Maidan and the whole junta structure they’ve built.
As a side note: Some are pushing for early Rada and presidential elections – and this could allow for a different outcome. Early elections for the West may be another way to re-structure and re-legitimize the junta under a different guise, with different faces, such as Yulia Timoshenko. That’s where Russia may come in and prevent this scenario, because all it will do is prolong the agony of Ukraine. Neither Russia nor DLPR benefit at all from changing the face of the junta.
This is precisely why Poroshenko is still being kept in power. Very badly, with huge problems, this slippery SOB still manages to maintain a very delicate equilibrium between all those home-grown crazies. Anyone else, such as Avakov, would not manage.
This is the only thing all Great Powers agree on: no one wants even deeper destabilization of Ukraine; no one wants a full fledged fascist state on their borders with raging civil war all over the country.
That’s why Poroshenko is still convenient for the time being even for Russia – sort of like the best of the worst and a known quantity.
Besides, Poroshenko makes for such a convenient scapegoat. Everyone’s just waiting for the mousetrap to close. Then Poroshenko and his cronies can be tried for their crimes. The trick will be not letting them escape.
You don’t want another face, such as Timoshenko or Avakov, or anyone else. After all, that other person could claim she/he had nothing to do with the war crimes, or that they were following orders. Meanwhile Poroshenko would have time to conveniently escape, having received asylum in London, US or Canada.
This has to be played cool and lots of negotiations will take place between Putin / Lavrov /Shoigu (whose special brand of diplomacy in Syria has proven very effective) and their Western counterparts.
Also, Russia is awaiting the European elections and subsequent Shift this year and next. But that’s a big and separate topic.
PREDICTION: There is no turning back after 2018. That will be a pivotal year, along with 2019.
The takeover of nuclear stations. Frankly, I don’t think ukro-nazi battalions have the guts, nor smarts, to accomplish that. Remember what I said in previous article Energy catastrophe and shut-down of Ukraine? They are mostly imbecile delinquents with an IQ below 100. They can only do what they are doing because the West has financed, armed and encouraged them.
That’s assuming they actually are acting of their own will, which they are not, as I also pointed out in the article. These ‘Ukraine patriots’ don’t make a move without being paid. Whoever pays, orders the music, as we say.
Avakov is not his own man either. He is Kolomoysky’s agent. Kolomoysky has all his billions in the West, which he salvaged by robbing and practically bankrupting Ukraine’s banking system. Everyone is well aware that he stole from the state, and – oh crime of crimes! – he also stole $10 billion of IMF loan money allocated to Ukraine. However, it wasn’t just his bounty: this money was divided between him, Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, Groysman, Avakov and a few others.
Although everyone appears to know this both in Ukraine and abroad, no one’s going after Kolomoysky’s money. Why? Because he made a trade with UK/US: his money for his country. Whatever Kolomoysky does is all done to preserve his money. Basically, like Berezovsky in his day, Kolomoysky is a typical agent of the West.
Yulia Timoshenko is trying to sell herself to the highest bidder; she’s now pursuing Trump to convince him to install her instead of Poroshenko. Nalivaichenko is CIA asset; oligarch Pinchuk was the largest private foreign donor to Hillary campaign, and now he is kissing up to Trump; Klichko is Merkel’s protegé, and so on.
I did discuss many of these personas and who controls them in ESR2 and ESR3.
Therefore, combined with Russia’s international efforts, and the fact that EU is mortified to have another Chernobyl, a new nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine will be avoided. Russia also still retains some deep-cover assets in Ukraine, who can prevent the nuclear worst case scenario to save lives. Besides, if ukro-nazis did dare take over nuclear stations, that would be the end of them, as enough people would finally rise against them. This is why Western masters won’t allow it to happen.
I am a lot more concerned that this wound will continue festering another 2 years as the West does everything to sabotage the Ukraine crisis resolution. I feel very sorry for the people of Novorossia (DLPR, Odessa, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhie, Nikolaev, Kherson, not to mention the occupied parts of Donbass), who have to continue suffering.
But here is a bit of very good news: Russia recognized DPR/LPR passports. This is a great first step towards a major shift in all of Ukraine.
The next step must become introducing visa regime for Ukraine. This will squeeze out millions of Western and Central Ukraine guest workers, who will go back to Kiev and put pressure on the regime. Once this is done, the situation in Ukraine will begin changing quickly. This could happen later this year.
The problem is, as always, the pressure on Russia by the West. Overall, it’ll be moving towards resolution, albeit gradually.

Also from Lada Ray:
Ukraine has ‘celebrated’ its 3rd anniversary of the Kiev Maidan. Many were predicting and expecting Maidan 3.0 and the ousting of Poroshenko. And then Maidan 3.0 went puff.
Meanwhile, a week ago Ukraine radicals from ukro-nazi battalions and various fascist organizations blockaded the rail and auto roads between Donetsk-Lugansk People’s Republics and Ukraine. Their idea – very logical from the standpoint of the Maidan – is this: why does Ukraine continue buying coal from ‘separatists’ with whom Ukraine government says it is at war?
Of course, the violent ukro-nazis, most of whom are high school drop-outs and jailbirds, have no idea about logistics, economy and systemic thinking. Trouble is, the infrastructure of Ukraine was built during Soviet times as one whole system, where various parts support each other. If the high quality and plentiful coal stops arriving from Donbass, then dozens of metallurgical, machine-building and chemical plants elsewhere will shut down.
What will also shut down are the thermal energy plants running on coal, and there are lots of those in Ukraine due to the cheap and high quality coal supplied by Donbass. What will happen when power stations shut down in the middle of winter? What will happen to Ukrainian citizens, who are already hardly surviving, each winter being harder and harder?
Last year Ukraine tried to buy coal from S. Africa. With great pomp a shipload of coal was unloaded in Odessa, just to be found later that this particular – much more expensive – coal doesn’t burn well in power plants designed specifically for Donbass coal.
As of today, several important metallurgical and chemical plants had to shut down in E. Ukraine. Dozens of other plants are about to close down due to the lack of coal.
This means tens of thousands are about to lose their jobs.
Meanwhile, an emergency electric power economy regime has been announced in the country. Authorities warn that most towns and cities are down to 1 week or less in supplies of coal. Domino effect electricity shut-offs in Kiev and other major cities are being announced.
Multiply this by the following facts:
Ukraine’s other important sources of electricity, its aging nuclear power stations, are in bad condition, not being maintained properly. They are also being overloaded and worked beyond capacity to pick up the slack from the dying coal power plants. We all know what may happen in such cases: Chernobyl.
The now deceased head of Europe’s largest Zaporozhie Nuclear Power Plant was a whistleblower, who tried to deliver the truth about the sorry state of Ukraine’s nuclear energy. He also blew the whistle on the fact that Ukraine has been trying to replace compatible Russian parts and nuclear fuel, for which the Ukrainian nuclear plants were built, with the incompatible American parts and fuel. He warned of the potential catastrophe, which would make Chernobyl look like a child’s toy. Last year he suddenly died, supposedly due to health reasons…
The blockade of Donbass rail and auto roads is conducted by only a few dozen militants from the right sector and ukro-nazi battalions. But despite such measly numbers, there appears to be no force in the country, or beyond, that can control them or make them go away. The law in Ukraine died on the day the Kiev Maidan began.
Ukraine president Poroshenko has been ‘pleading’ with ukro-nazis to stop the blockade. Drunk on power and self-importance, they refused.
Here’s the problem. Since 2014 Poroshenko and Kiev junta have adamantly maintained that in Donbass they are fighting ‘against the entire might of the Russian Army.’ In reality, of course, Poroshenko and Kiev junta have been attacking the people of Donbass who have rejected the Russophobic ukro-nazi ideology, and who simply wanted to be left alone to live on their land, honoring their true history and speaking Russian language.
Suddenly, the same Kiev junta and same Poroshenko who keep demanding money from the EU and US, based on their assertion that Ukraine continues successfully deflecting the ‘brutal aggression of the entire Russian Army’ in Donbass, are unable to do anything with a few dozen ukro-nazi bullies, who are about to send what’s left of Ukraine into a stone age? Sound plausible?
Moreover, in the past day or two Poroshenko’s junta has violently dispersed in Kiev the beginnings of Maidan 3.0. They are capable of dispersing thousands in Kiev, yet the whole Ukrainian police, special forces and army, which they don’t mind using against civilians in Donbass, cannot reign in on a few dozen ukro-nazi railroad blockaders?
Note this interesting detail! While all this has been happening in Ukraine, Poroshenko tried just in case to escape to the USA, but he was told that he wasn’t invited yet. Still, as of today, Poroshenko is missing from Kiev and from the country – location unknown. Same goes for Kolomoysky, Avakov and other junta bosses. Faced with the possibility of Maidan 3.0 they prefer to spend time in the security of some obscure ‘offshore haven.’
Make no mistake, they’ll be back as soon as the storm wears out. And why would the storm wear out? Why the new Maidan isn’t possible? Why was it successful in 2014 to install Poroshenko and the junta, yet, why is it not working against Poroshenko?
Because the 2014 Maidan was wholeheartedly supported and financed by the West. The 2017 3.0 anti-Poroshenko Maidan is not supported by the West.
All of the world’s color revolutions, the majority of mayhem, and practically all ugly international wars have been perpetrated by the West. The West doesn’t invest in one = it doesn’t happen. Such is the simple math of the bitter truth.
Everyone knows Poroshenko is missing from the country, yet – NOTICE THIS IMPORTANT DETAIL! – no one’s trying to unseat him. During the 2014 Maidan the West claimed that ‘Yanukovich left Kiev,’ therefore he forfeit his presidency, and consequently, US and EU were right to support the temporary Kiev junta government appointed personally by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland.
So, should we assume there is no force in the country capable of dealing with a few dozen ‘idealistic’ ukro-nazis, blockading and blowing up railroads? It’s a lot more logical that they have been simply paid off. And make no mistake: no Euro-Maidan or revolution happens in Ukraine without protesters being handsomely paid.
Who pays them off to blockade Donbass coal:
1. Poroshenko himself – to topple rival oligarchs, such as in this case Renat Akhmetov, once ‘the richest man in Ukraine’ according to Forbes, and now virtually bankrupt. It is Akhmetov’s plants located in Eastern Ukraine that are being hit by shut-downs.
2. Kolomoysky, and hiding behind his back until the right moment, Yulia Timoshenko.
3. Foreign parties – we know who they are – who want to continue destroying Ukraine. This is a well-known strategy: they know that they will eventually have to give up Ukraine, therefore, they want to destroy it as much as possible so that Russia would have to spend as many resources as possible to eventually rebuild it.
Incidentally, the same strange inability to reign in on terrorists and criminals is observed all over Ukraine: the most famous example is the continuing blockade of Crimea by the fascist Crimean Tartar Mejlis in Kherson Oblast. The illegal Crimean Tartar battalion Asker and associated ukro-nazis have been raping, robbing, taking away land/businesses and killing local citizens, while Kiev authorities give them cover. This has been proven recently when a Ukraine army major tried to confiscate illegal arms from Isliamov’s Asker battalion in Kherson oblast. Isliamov is a wanted terrorist in Russia, who organized the blowing up of electric power lines to Crimea, leaving 2.5 million people without power in the winter. The Ukrainian major who tried to do his job was fired from his post; all illegal arms were returned to Isliamov’s Crimean Tartar battalion.
Last year a few dozen ukro-nazis blockaded roads in western Ukraine, extensively used for shipping between Russia and EU. Neither Ukraine nor EU would reign into them either, despite the fact that EU companies were suffering losses. The problem was solved only via redirecting all shipping traffic away from Ukraine. In the process, Ukraine suffered millions of dollars in annual loss of transit revenue.
The logic of these ukro-nazis and ‘Ukraine patriots’ is brilliant: who cares that my country is going down the drain, as long as I get handsomely paid for inflicting damage on others and as long as I harm Russia, destroy or sabotage as much as I can.
It is these destructive elements that the West bred, financed and supported in Ukraine for the past 25+ years, just so that they would help undermine Russia.
And another observation: much of the population of Ukraine has been crushed and scared to death after the Kiev Maidan armed thugs gained control of the country in the past 3 years. But the majority have been simply brainwashed. They turned out to be surprisingly easy to brainwash. In front of their very eyes their country is being raped and slowly killed by hordes of invaders: 1. ukro-nazis from Western Ukraine; 2. oligarchs, most of whom aren’t ethnically Ukrainians or Russians; 3. by the West. Meanwhile, the population at large isn’t protesting, watching how their country’s life is being slowly snuffed out by the forces of darkness.
Not all are overtly violent who are in agreement with Maidan and the junta. Some simply live in their own la la land. Take for example Ukrainian singer Ruslana, whose claim to fame is that she once won Eurovision contest – I believe, thanks to Russia giving her the top score of 12 points. Ruslana is now a rabidly Russophobic Ukraine ‘patriot.’ She is sort of ‘Madonna’ of Ukraine. Recently this semi-crazy diva went on TV, promoting alternative energy. It went like this: “We have to free ourselves from dependence on Russian (or Donbass) energy or gas. For example, I use my own windmill factory to generate all the power I need. It’s so easy – just build them on your property and you have free energy!”
All fine and good, but the cost of windmills on ‘Ruslana’s property’ turned out to be upward of $400,000. Average Ukrainian’s salary is $125 a month.
Mass protests took place all over South and East of Ukraine in 2014-2016. These protests were brutally and bloodily suppressed. So far, only the people of Crimea and parts of Donbass found enough courage and stamina to effectively counter the aggression and occupation by west-Ukraine ukro-nazis and foreign forces.
Some of Lada Ray 2014 predictions on Ukraine were:
- Only Russia – the sister nation – can control the dark element in Ukraine; and only Russia can rebuild Ukraine and help it prosper again.
- The West will drop Ukraine like a squeezed-out lemon when it realizes it cannot control the monster they created.
- Ukraine will turn back to Russia and away from the West by the end of 2018.
- But before that happens, Ukraine economy will be completely destroyed.
- People of Ukraine need to learn their lesson. They need to find inner courage and common sense to save themselves. At the very minimum they need to find enough energy to help Russia save them. So far they haven’t.
- I have voiced the next two predictions before, but I want to re-formulate them even more clearly for the future: Ukraine’s salvation from the abyss in which it’s falling is directly tied with two factors: the shift within, and the weakening of the USA and EU – the two entities that have been behind those who are sucking it dry.
- Simple as that: in the next decades US and EU will have to deal full-force with the bad karma they generated in abundance by destroying Ukraine and many other countries. US and EU should prepare to reap what they’ve sown.

Novorossia/Donbass and Ukraine, have been put on a back burner in the past month or two. Meanwhile, Ukraine and Donbass are about to again become headline news. Last year I wrote about the heating up events in Donbass and about my prediction that Trump is preparing to dump Poroshenko and Ukraine. As many of you know, my articles/ videos, Earth Shift Reports, Webinars and Predictions often preempt the real events by months, or even years. Those who are smart will follow me and listen carefully to what I say today, in order to be prepared for tomorrow.

Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT,
dedicated primarily to the explosive Odessa and Black Sea events and conspiracies!
Odessa’s Cold Spring 2016 Report!
Odessa under occupation; thousands of ukro-nazis descend on the city; tensions peak between May 2 & May 9 anniversaries.
May 1, 2016: some of the flyers, posted around the city by the resistance in the run-up to May 2 anniversary.
Flyer 1 translation: Map of Ukraine – sign over western/central Ukraine/Kiev – SOLD; sign over eastern Ukraine – LOST (a more direct translation ‘SCREWED OVER’); sign over where Crimea used to be as part of Ukraine – LOST (‘SCREWED OVER’); sign over southern Ukraine/ Black Sea coast (Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson): SOON TO BE LOST.
Flyer 2 translation: There is no third alternative: either free and sovereign Novorossia, or slavery and suppression under junta. Choose one!
Flyer 3 translation: On top (flag of Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic) with words: ‘This is the flag of my country, under which it was built and prospered.’ At the bottom, blue-yellow flag of today’s Ukraine with words: ‘This is the flag of separatists under which the country was destroyed, sold out, became a laughing stock, and under which people are killed.’
Today, May 2, 2016, #Odessa marks the anniversary of the #Kulikovo Polye massacre.
This spring is especially hard for Odessa. The provocations had begun on April 10, 2016, the day of ‘Odessa’s liberation from German Nazi and Romanian occupation.’
After Crimea and DNR/LNR, Odessa is the biggest symbol of resistance against the Kiev junta and fascism. The goal of the junta and their foreign handlers is to break the spirit of the city that had never surrendered. As I revealed in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT, Odessa is the most valuable asset left in Ukraine’s possession. It consists of seven major ports and it hugs the entire northwestern shore of Black Sea. Kiev junta and its Transatlantic handlers are attempting to mold Odessa into being the ultimate anti-Russian sea fortress, especially in case they lose the rest of Ukraine. For this reason the ousted Georgian president and US agent, Saakashvili, was illegally installed as governor. For this reason they also want to bend the will of the majority of Odessans, who never agreed with foreign occupation.
This is why on May 2, 2014 they orchestrated a massacre, when 48 people were burned alive or killed on Kulikovo Polye. This is the number officially admitted by Kiev. By accounts of researchers, the actual number of victims was over 100, by others, over 200.
Kiev, ukro-nazis and Saakashvili have been determined to sabotage today’s 2nd anniversary of the Kulikovo massacre. The city is being turned into a huge concentration camp.
My Odessa intel says that since April eight thousand ukro-nazis from western Ukraine descended on Odessa. They were settled in various budget resorts near Odessa, rented whole to house those who would serve as provocateurs during May 2 and May 9 memorial dates.
Meanwhile Saakashvili called for national guard. Ukrainian national guard was formed in 2014 after it became clear that most of the army and police were refusing to fire at peaceful protesters and were not hot on attacking Donbass. Minister of interior Avakov admitted that every third national guard member was a criminal and/or a jail-bird, many with murder convictions. Those who aren’t convicted felons, are ukro-nazis from western or central Ukraine.
At the same time, at least 500 ukro-nazis from ‘azov’ battalion were moved from Mariupol to Odessa. The vast majority of ‘azov’ members hide behind face masks, fearing recognition and future responsibility for their actions. Azov is well-known for its role in the bombings of Donbass, looting and massacres of peaceful civilians.
This spring, tensions in Odessa and around Odessa Oblast are the highest since 2014. The impression is that junta, ukro-nazis and foreign invaders are testing how far the patience of the people will go and when it will snap. Are they looking for an excuse to formally militarize the city, turning it into a giant concentration camp?
Earlier, western Ukraine ukro-nazis announced that they would be celebrating birthday of the Bandera ukro-nazi SS division Galichina, in Odessa on April 28. The division formed in western Ukraine, was part of the German fascist SS troops responsible for mass killings in Ukraine and Poland. According to the Nuremberg Tribunal, this division, its symbolism and ideology is banned and must be prosecuted. However, in today’s Ukraine it is celebrated and its marches are openly welcomed. Not a word of condemnation has ever been said by sponsors and bosses of Ukraine junta, USA, Poland, Canada and EU. The impression is that they support Nazism and the resurrection of SS.
SS division Galichina never had anything to do with Odessa, the decidedly anti-fascist city. The pre-announced SS Galichina’s march in Odessa caused a wide-spread international indignation. As a result, Kiev was forced to ban it. Instead, the march took place in Lvov, the birthplace of SS Galichina.
SBU (Ukraine security/intelligence services) issued warrants for all leaders of Odessa’s Kulikovo Polye movement for today, May 2. Instead of being on Kulikovo Polye on the day of protests, these people had to show up for an interrogation. By doing so, SBU hoped to stop today’s event.
The Kulikovo Polye movement is grass-roots organization that was born after May 2 massacre to remember the victims and to demand fair investigation and punishment of perpetrators. To this day NONE of those responsible was brought to justice or charged. However, Odessa jails are full of those who were the Kulikovo victims and who, by sheer accident, survived. They were arrested, instead of being given medical help. Dozens have been held for 2 years without trial. There are truly horrific stories of brutal conditions, torture and no medical help.
At the same time, ukro-nazis have been threatening activists and simple people with bodily harm should they dare show up today. However, as you’ll see below, it didn’t work. By estimates, over 5 thousands people still showed up to lay flowers and protest fascism. But it’s a far cry from the 2015 numbers, when over 40,000 people showed up.
Here’s why. Authorities surrounded Kulikovo Polye with armored vehicles and heavy-duty weapons, preventing anyone from entering the square. Thousands of people are trying to get through to lay flowers, but they are forced to crowd in a tiny patch of land at the entrance to the square.
Upcoming Victory Day on May 9 is also expected to be turbulent. First of, Ukraine banned all Russian and Soviet symbolism and reminders of the true history of Ukraine. Anyone trying to show up with Georgievskaya Lentochka (band of St. George) or Victory Banner would be arrested or killed by ukro-nazis.
As the ultimate provocation, authorities authorized a football match at Odessa stadium on May 7, just two days before Victory Day. The crazed ‘football ultras’ were part of the force that executed extreme violence on Kiev maidan. They also were used in part to kill people on May 2 in Odessa. Now these ultras are coming to town on May 7, promising to stay over for May 9. This means that they will try to create mayhem, preventing people from commemorating Victory Day, marked widely in Odessa as the day of memory and as a day of mass protests against ukro-nazis.
Kulikovo Polye: before, during and after May 2, 2014 tragedy
Before May 2, 2014 tragedy:
Pic 1: bird’s eye view of the Kulikovo Polye, Odessa’s main square, more or less as I remember it as a child.
Pic 2: 2013 – main alley leading from Kulikovo Polye, also still peaceful, although during Soviet days it was much better maintained than during Kiev rule:
March 2014 – Before the massacre: peaceful protesters of the Kulikovo tent city. The banner reads: ‘Odessa for Referendum.’ Meaning, the referendum whether to join Customs Union or sign EU association. This was after ukro-nazi Kiev coup of February 2014, when people still believed they lived in a democratic country and that peaceful protests could be heard. They still thought they were safe to protest in their own city, in their country… May 2 will put an end to that. People will fully understand that they live in a country that has been occupied by fascists and sold to foreign interests. On May 2, between 2 and 4 thousand of trained and well-armed thugs will attack 200 unarmed people manning the 24/7 protest.
These are images from May 2, 2014 genocide in action (sorry, graphic, but we cannot forget what they had done!)
May 2, 2016: military occupation of Odessa by Kiev national guard and ukro-nazi battalion azov. They blockaded the square and didn’t allow mourners to lay flowers at the site of May 2 tragedy.
Videos from today’s, May 2, 2016 events in Odessa:
People step on leaflets depicting Parubiy, the present speaker of the Kiev Rada. The leaflet reads: ‘Murderer.’ Ukro-nazi Parubiy was on May 2, 2014 the chief coordinator of the attack on the unarmed protesters of the Kulikovo tent city. Today he occupies position No. 3 in Ukraine, after Poroshenko and his stooge Groysman.
Complete 2 hour plus video of what went on today near Kulikovo Polye. Between 5 and 10 thousand gathered. All this is happening without the Kulikovo movement leaders, who have been detained by SBU.
People chant: ‘Fascism won’t pass,’ Odessa – hero city,’ ‘We won’t forget, we won’t forgive.’ After waiting for a long time, people start chanting, ‘Let us in,’ and ‘Open the square.’ Notably, around 1:30:00 people chant, ‘Odessa is a Russian city.’
At 1:33:00, being denied entry onto the square, people lay flowers on a patch of grass outside the square. Behind them, in the distance you can see the Building of the Unions, where the massacre occurred two years ago.
1:33:13 a brave woman says: ‘They must answer! Kiev junta, Parubiy, police who didn’t do their job and allowed our people to be massacred – they must be held responsible; murderers and traitors must pay!’ Another woman says: ‘We want Poroshenko, Parubiy, Nemirovsky, Gordienko (some of the known killers) to answer for the killing of peaceful people.’
Incidentally, identities of all those who killed and burned people are known, ample video proof is available, but no one in Ukraine bothers to prosecute! People start chanting ‘Hold them all responsible!’
At 1:34:00 “Poroshenko is a murderer, Poroshenko belongs in jail,’ “Parubiy is a murderer,’ ‘Saakashvili back to Georgia.’ ‘Rada are traitors, stooges of fascists and US.’
1:38:00 Chanting: ‘Donbass, we are with you.’ You may notice that women are especially vocal and brave here.
1:51:00 A field of flowers.
2:03:00 More people are gathering. Black balloons and white doves ceremony. There are signs in the crowd: Spain, France, Italy, Israel and others.
2:08:00 You can see how national guard blockades the square, keeping people squashed in a small appendix.
What and why happened two years ago in Odessa…
Analysis and thoughts
In the past two years you may have read my posts about Odessa. Moreover, my latest Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT is mainly dedicated to the globally important events, as well as futurist forecast, for Odessa and Black Sea region.
You may recall that I grew up in Odessa and that this city holds a very special place in my heart. I wrote about it in my 2013 posts where I, unknowingly, predicted what would happen. Read about the still peaceful Odessa:
On May 2, 2014 something terrible happened in Odessa. By official account 48 people were burned alive on Kulikovo Polye. By many credible unofficial accounts, over 200 died that day a terrible death. To this day, Kiev junta and ukro-nazis in power refuse to investigate the shocking event. They never arrested perpetrators, whose names and faces were all captured on camera – in fact, the criminals went around posing with burned corpses, uploading these gruesome videos on their YouTube channels. Instead, the authorities arrested the surviving Kulikovo Polye protesters, some of whom were later let go because of mass protests and some are still in jail.
That day, May 2, 2014 Odessa experience the worst tragedy since the Great War (WWII) and Romanian – German Nazi occupation.
Thousands of well-trained and armed Ukrainian Nazis (ukro-nazis) were brought into the city from central and western Ukraine. As is constantly being revealed by various sources, the training camps for these ukro-nazis were organized in western Ukraine and Poland, where angry, displaced and brainwashed young men were trained by instructors from US, Canada and Poland. Financing came from the same sources. We can be sure that a part of the ‘5 billion US dollars’ that Victoria Nuland spent on ‘subverting Ukraine’ were used to support these thugs.
The whole chilling scenario reminds us painfully of how Al Qaeda and ISIS were organized, financed and trained.
The ukro-nazis from ‘svoboda,’ ‘the right sector’, battalion ‘aidar’ was also lavishly financed by Jewish-Ukrainian oligarch Kolomoysky and organized for the attack on Odessa by the current speaker of the Kiev Rada (Ukraine parliament) Parubiy and current Interior Minister Avakov. Parubiy recently became the Ukrainian Rada speaker after previous speaker, Groysman, was installed as Ukraine PM, replacing former PM Yatsenyuk.
Groysman is the man of Poroshenko, who in turn is a direct US agent. Avakov is the man of Yatsenyuk, who was installed as Ukraine PM after 2014 coup personally by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland (you recall the leaked 2014 tape where Nuland converses with US ambassador to Ukraine Payet: ‘f*** EU, Yats will be PM, Klitchko won’t work, etc.). Parubiy is a well-known CIA agent.
Therefore, there is no doubt that all of these entities were in on the hit against Odessa.
The attack of May 2 was organized with far-reaching goals in mind. On the surface it was done in order to spoil the city’s May celebrations. May 1 is Intl Workers’ day & May 9 – Victory Day, both traditionally widely celebrated. Odessa, for its brave resistance to the Romanian – German Nazi occupation during WWII, was awarded the Gold Star of the Hero City – one of only four original Hero Cities of the USSR (read about that in above-linked Odessa articles).
But Odessa, along with Crimea and Donbass, also played an incredibly important geopolitical role for the Kiev junta and US occupation. The extreme importance of Odessa as a key port, site for the US mega navy-military base and as a means of containing Russia is Black Sea is all discussed in detail, together with predictions and forecasts in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
What happened on May 2, 2014: western and central Ukraine ukro-nazis descended on the unsuspecting city by train and bus. They joined forces with very few and far in-between locals. The proof that very few Odessans succumbed to ukro-nazi propaganda and turned on their own history and truth is that they had to bring thousands of reinforcements from other parts of Ukraine. However, the few locals who did join them were necessary as guides. They knew local terrain and could point out where people were hiding, how to block escape routes, etc.
All these thugs attacked the peaceful protest ‘tent city’ on Odessa’s main cobblestoned square called Kulikovo Polye. The tent city was organized during Kiev maidan 2013-2014 and especially grew after ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014.
Thousands of these very well-organized thugs, clearly directed from one center, burned tents and hunted down unarmed protesters. People from the tent city had no choice but to attempt to escape into the nearby building of what is today the House of the Unions (aka, the building of Trade Unions). When I grew up, the Kulikovo Polye’s landmark granite building housed the Odessa Oblast’s Communist Party headquarters.
The Kulikovo square constitues a pretty large open space. Moreover, it is located close to Odessa’s main train station, which is also surrounded by open spaces. It’s very hard to hide or escape there. Due to the terrain, the only viable hiding space was the building of the Unions.
It was a normal work day and at the time of the attack many simple, unsuspecting employees toiled inside the building. It appears that some of these employees, seeing what was going on in the square gave shelter to the protesters to save their lives.
Since the building is pretty solid, ukro-nazis could not storm it. Instead they began throwing Molotov cocktails and various incendiary devices into windows. The inside of the building, with its parquet floors, large wood doors and paneling caught on fire. The poor working women, innocent employees of the Trade Unions, were forced to get out on ledges to save themselves from fire. After that, ukro-nazi thugs stormed the building, where they finished off those who were still alive or those who tried to escape the fire. To this day it’s unclear how many people actually perished; some believe the number to be as high as 213 victims.
After the tragedy, the city was in shock. Those who organized this vicious attack counted on such reaction. Their goal was to subdue the independent-minded and always having a mind of its own city, scare the people to the point that they would be afraid to stick their noses out. This only worked for a few months. Very soon a grass-roots peaceful protests came about. People simply gathered on Kulikovo Polye to lay flowers to the site of the attack they brought pictures of victims, held rallies and spoke about justice. People organized a make-shift plywood memorial in front of the burned down House of the Unions, which to this day hasn’t been rebuilt. They gathered every week, and sometimes even more often. These people, who bravely continue coming to the spontaneous Kulikovo protests, are called ‘Kulikovtsi.’
Oftentimes, ukro-nazi thugs attack these rallies, popping black balloons symbolizing the victims, destroying make-shift memorials and trashing flowers.
An interesting phenomenon was noted by many observers. While young people came as well, mostly, in such grass-roots rallies one could see women and older, retired men. Not because young men weren’t interested. No. As on many dire occasions in Russian history, women yet again demonstrate their courage and amazingly practical common sense. According to them, ukro-nazis are on the outlook for young, strong men. They would target such men, beating them up, kidnapping them, or provoking a fight, leading to a protester’s arrest. When older women come, the danger that they would be attacked is much slimmer, although it exists. While sold-out, local police wouldn’t dare arrest an older woman. Generally, even ukro-nazis try not to attack older women, which only generates negative publicity and can get them arrested.
Some criticize the fact that relatively few young men show up at the Kulikvtsi protests, and brand them cowards. However, I do understand the rationale. It is not worth it getting beaten up or killed by ukro-nazis, who are on constant lookout for those who may become the new wave of real Odessa resistance. Any premature showing will only result in the men who will eventually have to stand up to occupation, being killed. Women understand that and naturally try to protect these last ‘300 Spartans’ (in reality many more than that) until the time is right.
It’s much better to sit it out, gather strength, and wait for the right moment to act. To paraphrase a Russian singer Visotsky’s song: “Who said that Odessa has died? No, for a time, she simply went into hiding.”
Victory Day 2015 demonstrated this very well. Over 40,000 people came out to the Unknown Sailor’s memorial, with victory banners and banned in Ukraine Georgievskaya Lentochkas. See videos and my post: MOLDOVA and ODESSA: Hundreds of Thousands Come Out for May 9 #Victory70 Celebrations Despite Attempts to Ban Holiday.
On April 10 Odessa marked the 72 anniversary of the liberation of Odessa by the Soviet Army from the Romanian/German Nazi occupation. Crowds gathered near the Unknown Sailor’s memorial, again with banned Georgievskaya Lentochkas. Ukro-nazis tried to take away these symbols of victory, resulting in some fights and arrests. After that, a large column of protesters, Kulikovtsi and others, marched to Kulikovo Polye. However, it turned out that a large number of very aggressive ukro-nazis already surrounded Kulikovo Polye, no allowing anyone to come in. Police advised protesters to cancel the march. Meanwhile, aggressive nazis again trashed the victims’ memorial and ended up attacking police, who tried to keep relative order. Kulikovo square yet again turned into a battleground, but this time between police and ukro-nazis. It appears, this time police was authorized to do what was necessary. Of course, police had an upper hand, and as many reported, they took immense pleasure in beating up the thugs, many of whom seemed very young, somewhere between 15 and 22 years of age. Also, scores were arrested.
What happened on April 10 in Odessa proved yet again that in fact previously police was given orders to look the other way, or worse, to help ukro-nazis. This is the only explanation how so many people were burned alive right under the windows of the Odessa Oblast Administration, located across from Kulikovo Polye. The police was used as part of the op to destroy the spirit of Odessa.
Another thing it proves is that there is one invisible and very vicious hand orchestrating this diabolical chain of events. Only the support and direct encouragement by the US (Canada, Poland, Lithuania, EU being USA’s stooges) could have emboldened ukro-nazis to the point that they would commit the unthinkable crimes all over Ukraine. They are cowards and dregs of society. They only do what they do because they are sure they would not be punished; moreover, they are sure they’ll be paid well in US dollars. As such, ukro-nazis chanted, attacking peaceful people, “America is with us.”
For as long as America, EU and other stooges support, finance and protect criminals in Ukraine and all over the world atrocities will continue.
Of course, in their ‘work’ US has to rely on the internal force that is capable of committing such despicable acts. US seeks out and breeds crooks, greedy oligarchs and politicians, lying MSM, PR and propaganda specialists, as well as angry armed thugs of all persuasions. The phenomenon of the lost and very aggressive young generation is something peculiar to Ukraine. It is also peculiar to some of the Muslim cultures. Generally, such confused, displaced and very aggressive young people appear in countries that failed to create social lifts, educational and job opportunities; that was unable to produce a system of which these young people would be proud. They become an easy prey for those who wish to harm their own or neighboring countries.
After the breakup of the USSR in 1991, Ukraine went from bad to worse. As is recognized by many experts, Ukraine and the older, more experienced generation, completely dropped the ball on the education of the young generations. Busy with own survival and bringing home the bacon, they allowed the entire educational system to fall into the hands of the US/Canadian/Soros propagandists with hidden agenda. Entertainment, MSM and PR went the same way.
No one was looking in that direction, until it was too late. The superior Soviet educational system was replaced with inferior Western-style educational system, combined with falsified history, thus creating a warped alternative reality. In the absence of real education and amidst the smartest and most talented people leaving Ukraine by millions, this resulted in 15-25 year-olds having absorbed ukro-nazi, Russophobic propaganda. The most bizarre thing is that some of those who have become ukro-nazi Russophobes are in fact Russian-speaking people. In fact, these convenient dupes deny who they are in order to advance a foreign agenda.

SPRING 2016 UKRAINE REPORT! Nuclear Disaster, Elenovka Tragedy, War Against Memory, What Russia Wants
May Holidays and the dangerous spring 2016
This is a cold and dangerous spring of 2016. At least in Ukraine it is. So much is going on that I’ve decided to publish this new UKRAINE report in two parts.
Part 1 addresses a number of crucial new events and important threats facing Ukraine. These are:
1 The shocking Elenovka tragedy – a clear proof of Kiev breaking Minsk-2 peace agreement.
2 Polish and Ukrainian war against Russian monuments and their own history.
3. Chernobyl-2 in the making: persistent dire warnings of possible new nuclear disaster in Ukraine!
Also in this report:
4. The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany.
5. What does Russia really want in Ukraine?
6. How Putin and Lavrov, through peaceful means and reason, outplayed Merkel and Hollande and why Poroshenko won’t be able to attack DNR and LNR.
7. A concise Lada Ray guide to Ukraine’s parts (See additional maps and complete explanation in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE.)
8. Why the pristine Kherson Oblast I once knew is being turned into a disaster zone, being invaded by ISIS militants and the ‘right sector.’ More in the future Earth Shift Report: CRIMEAN AGENDA.
9. Worrying news from Odessa! City’s bracing for possible civil war on May 2 and May 9. The world’s eyes are on Odessa! Part 2 of this report, SPRING 2016 ODESSA REPORT, will put in perspective the dangerous events expected there.
10. Plus, a pre-announcement: upcoming surprise Earth Shift Report re. big changes in EU!
We are approaching May Holidays (RUS: Maiskie prazdniki)
What is that? Maiskie prazdniki is the cumulative name for two holidays: May Day on May 1, which is celebrated as both the day of spring and nature and as the international day of worker solidarity, and May 9, or Victory Day, marking the end of WWII and the Russian victory. Both are very widely celebrated in the entire Russian World / post-Soviet space.
During this period the provocations and clashes in Ukraine are widely expected. Also expected are provocations in other post-Soviet and Eastern Europe countries.
Poland’s war against monuments to Soviet soldiers, those who died liberating Poland from fascism
Polish government is descending more and more into fascism. It has announced the dismantling of something like 500 monuments to Russian soldiers, who liberated Poland during WWII. Hundreds of thousands of Russian and other Soviet soldiers who gave their lives for Poland, had been buried on Polish land. In the past several years vandals desecrated many Russian burial sites and Polish authorities dismantled many Russian monuments. In fact, those local mayors who resist dismantling monuments experience threats from the government and Polish nationalists.
It has to be noted that some simple Poles have been writing to the Russian Foreign Ministry with apologies for the actions of the Polish vandals destroying the Russian soldiers’ graves all over the country and the Polish government destroying monuments. Some try to restore and protect them. I’ll refrain from posting the graphic images here, but you can find them online, or search for videos on YT.
In this post I wasn’t planning on invoking the obvious word: karma. But there will be consequences for such actions. I’m not talking about any ‘Russian vengeance’ here. Not at all. I am talking about divine justice.
Incidentally, I warned about Poland’s descent into madness, isolation and hatred since 2014. Back then, a Polish woman indignantly wrote to me that I had no idea what I was talking about, that Poland would never, blah, blah… And, oh, look: just a couple of years later – as predicted!
Their biggest fear is the United Eurasia: the plan to keep Europe and Russia separate
The campaign of dismantling Russian monuments and other anti-Russian hysteria in Poland is accompanied with the usual BS about ‘Russian occupation.’
This convenient mantra was slapped together by the Transatlantic handlers for their current Eastern Europe vassals back in the 1960s-1980s. At that time it was used to tear as many countries as possible away from the USSR. Today it serves the purpose of artificially keeping the people of Eastern Europe and Russia apart. By stoking a fire wall of animosity between Russia and EU’s Eastern Europe members, the puppet masters are able to keep the Iron Curtain between Western Europe and Russia alive and well.
This is all a part of the same global game of weakening and isolating Russia from the rest of Europe. The creators of this lie are the same as the creators of anti-Russian sanctions and the ‘subversion’ of Ukraine. They will do anything to keep Russia and Europe apart. The thing they fear most is the re-unification of Eurasia into one continuous cooperative and mutually beneficial space – as it historically was and as it’s supposed to be.
In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT I talk at length about Stratfor Baltic-Black Sea Plan and how Poland is being used to erect a new Iron Curtain between EU and Russia.
Please read ESR8 for a full picture, tying together the worrying events in Poland, Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, the Balkans and Caucasus. Nothing that happens in those convoluted for the Westerners parts, happens by accident!
The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany
The destruction of Ukraine on all levels continues. A big part of it is the destruction of human memory, re-writing of the genetic code and own history. As Ukraine descends into fascist madness, it is simultaneously ‘decommunizing.’
Hmm… we’ve seen this before in one nice European country, called Germany. The outcome of the German Nazis’ all-consuming thirst for denial and destruction of others is well-known: it caused the near destruction of Germany itself.
It’s amazing to me how short and selective human memory is! I hear everywhere – even heard it a couple of times from my own readers – that Hitler was a good guy and that it was UK and US that made him take the slippery road to destruction. Frankly, I have very little patience with people like that, so I’ll just say it this once.
One: these are the kind of people who think they are independent thinkers because they read this in some obscure book and because they think it’s unconventional to think this way. In reality, they simply regurgitate someone’s hidden agenda.
Two: Yes, it is true that Hitler and Germany were manipulated into starting World War II. Simultaneously, they were pumped up with credits and technology by UK and US. The ultimate goal of this scheme was to unleash Hitler on Russia/USSR in order to destroy the only country that always stood, and continues standing, in the way of Anglo-American globalist expansion and the complete takeover of the world. Along the way, they wanted to destroy another rival – Germany itself.
However, the whole point of being a national leader is to be smart enough to see the pitfalls and traps prepared for you and your country. I am leaving aside Hitler’s hideous national-fascist Nazi ideology, which is partially explainable by Germany’s defeat in WWI. But only just. Again, who was forcing Germany to BEGIN WWI? Yes, they were manipulated by the same forces. But where was the wisdom and common sense?
There, obviously, was none. Incidentally, a German philosopher said: ‘Every country deserves its government.’ Germans ELECTED Hitler and watched indifferently as he prosecuted those who had a different opinion inside the country. The people of Germany also watched and participated(!) as Hitler invaded and looted country after country. Incidentally, the same was true for Japan, which invaded and brutally killed millions of Chinese, Mongols and other Asians.
IF national leadership and the people of Germany allowed themselves to succumb to outside manipulation, if they knowingly benefited from the tragedy and suffering of millions of others, if they CHOSE to purposefully and willingly participate in inflicting terrible destruction on the peaceful people all over the globe – they are responsible and there is nothing that can change that! Hitler and all those who were a part of the German/Japanese/Romanian aggression against other countries are war criminals and their crimes can never be forgotten, unless humans want a repeat of 1914, 1939 and 1941.
Some may say there was no choice. There always is a choice! Some Germans went to concentration camps or were killed because they spoke up. Others became anti-fascists and resistance partisans, or surrendered to Russian troops because they refused to participate in the massacre of Russians, Soviets and Europeans.
Three: I just have one simple number for you – 27 million lives. This is what Hitler’s and Romanian aggression (in Odessa and Moldavia) cost Russia and the entire USSR. Primary losses were in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. Two members of my family died and more were wounded during the Great War of 1941-1945.
36 million Chinese were massacred by the Japanese aggressors during WWII period.
Incidentally, I have absolutely no problem with German people. Two of my best friends in school were Germans; I love Germany and German culture. Same goes for American, Polish, Japanese, or any other people anywhere on the globe.
It’s not about anyone’s culture or nationality – it’s about world view and civilizational choice. It’s also about one’s conscience.
That said, on this site we have zero tolerance for anyone who promotes Hitler or Nazis/fascists of any sort. Permanent ban will be implemented against anyone who posts such comments. See BLOG RULES on top bar.
What Russia really wants in Ukraine
Ukraine won’t be able to repeat the German fate, no matter how much Kiev ukro-nazis try, because Russia won’t let that happen. If Russia weren’t doing everything to keep Ukraine from descending into ultimate madness and complete self-destruction, if Russia played by the same devious rules as the West, by now we would see the entire territory of Ukraine in the midst of civil war. The loss of life, coupled with the destruction of most infrastructure, would be much more widespread.
As it stands, Ukraine is doing an excellent job of imploding all by itself, even when others try hard to cushion the fall.
I wrote in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT that the West has no idea how many means of secret influence, intel gathering and sabotage Russia does possess in Odessa. The same exact thing is true for all of Ukraine. The reason Russia isn’t using these means is one and only: Russia is trying to preserve the lives, infrastructure and psyche of Ukrainians.
Russia is doing everything humanly possible to gently neutralize the US plan: turning one part of the Russian people against another part of the Russian people.
The West is using Ukraine as a puppet and a disposable tool to manipulate and weaken Russia.
Meanwhile, Russia’s goal is to keep Ukraine as intact as possible in the midst of self-inflicted destructive psychosis, activated and supported by foreign entities. Feel the crucial difference!
As I predicted back in 2014: Russia continues carefully and patiently remolding the situation in Ukraine, which eventually will lead to Ukraine’s turnaround. To do that, Russia is absolutely correctly treating Ukraine with kid gloves, even when it doesn’t deserve them.
Russia is Ukraine’s only hope for survival. Russia treats Ukraine and Ukrainians with kindness and forgiveness of a mother or father, who, despite the cruelty and bad behavior of a prodigal child, knows that one day that child will learn its lesson and return home. No one else needs or wants Ukraine, with all its problems.
Despite all difficulties, this, only correct, strategy is starting to bear fruit. Look at how different some European countries’ position is today, compared to 2014! Remember my 2014 predictions? More and more people in Ukraine and West will be awakening to the understanding of what’s going on; slowly, gradually, Ukraine will be turning back towards Russia and away from the West.
But the task ahead is truly monumental. After 25+ years of Soros/US/ukro-nazi brainwashing, coupled with oligarchic infestation and socio-economic disaster, some younger Ukrainians had forgotten who they were, succumbing to anti-Russian propaganda. It will be very hard, but possible, to rehabilitate this lost generation.
As it is, Ukraine had lost its way 25 years ago and it must go through this cleansing process. When health has been neglected for so long, the cleansing never looks pretty. There is no way of going forward without getting rid of old problems first.
But on the surface, it seems the opposite to my hopeful forecast is taking place. Today’s situation in Ukraine resembles the expression ‘it’s darkest before the dawn.’
Chernobyl 2: New nuclear disaster in the making!
On the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy, the loud expert warnings sound that the remaining functioning Ukrainian nuclear stations are a disaster waiting to happen. They have begun replacing the compatible Russian nuclear fuel with American Westinghouse fuel, which proved to be incompatible. This fuel was previously rejected by other Russian-built nuclear stations, for example, in Slovakia and in Ukraine itself.
Kiev’s severing ties with Russia means that stations are not being properly maintained and Russian-made parts are not replaced on time. All four stations are getting old, approaching a point of no return. Using the incompatible Westinghouse parts may lead to a catastrophe.
The biggest worry is the reckless exploitation schedule. Due to power shortages after Ukraine refused to maintain the unified power grid with Russia, operators are forced to constantly speed up reactors to maximum capacity during peak hours. Such experiments led to Chernobyl catastrophe 30 years ago.
The Elenovka tragedy
Two days ago Kiev executed a targeted bombing against peaceful civilians. Six people were killed, including a pregnant woman, and scores wounded, in Elenovka village. These people were sitting in their cars near border control post between DNR and Ukraine, waiting in line to cross to the other side. Some of them were retirees forced to drive to Ukrainian side to get their pensions, others – on their way to visit families or tend to their fields stuck on the other side.
Because Kiev continues shutting down border crossings, more and more have to use the same crossing, resulting in long lines. People sometimes have to spend the night in their cars, waiting for their turn to cross. Just before the shelling, locals reported hearing a Ukrainian drone, and shortly after, the Minsk-agreement banned heavy Ukrainian artillery began shelling cars with sleeping people inside.
Link to video with the aftermath of the Elenovka tragedy. Warning! It’s very graphic!
In my recent post Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf? I said:
“If Kiev can’t attack directly, what can Ukraine do? Instead, they are attempting to provoke DNR and LNR. To accomplish that they continuously shell peaceful citizens and villages near frontline. The idea is to anger the republics so much that they lose their cool and begin retaliating, thus breaking Minsk 2 agreement. After that Kiev, US and EU get to blame DNR/LNR and, of course, Russia in violating cease-fire. If that should happen, Kiev and US will immediately demand new sanctions against Russia and attempt to vilify Russia and Putin yet again.
This is why DNR/LNR can’t respond to obvious provocations. The especial cruelty of the situation is in the fact that innocent people and animals suffer under shellings, with no recourse.”
This new provocation falls in line with Kiev tactics of trying to provoke DNR/LNR into retaliating. Poroshenko is desperate. He is being pressured by EU, and now even by US due the election year, to start fulfilling Minsk agreement’s demands. He can’t do that because his own Rada will tear him apart. His only choice is to re-start armed conflict in Donbass to delay Minsk-2 fulfillment. This is why provocations, targeting peaceful civilians, will continue.
My prediction is that the Elenovka tragedy won’t go as planned by Kiev. The plan to provoke DNR into retaliating is needed to distract Ukraine’s public from internal problems, to re-ignite animosity against Russia, to delay the implementation of Minsk 2, to blame the republics for breaking the truce, and to instigate renewed sanctions against Russia in the wake of EU gearing up for their removal. However, all this will backfire.
Instead, the brutal killing of innocents will serve as yet another clear international proof of Kiev breaking the Minsk agreements. This event will put yet another nail in the coffin of the Kiev junta and its support by the West (many more nails still required, but it’s a start). If not, then EU, US, Canada, IMF and NATO will publicly demonstrate to all that they condone the slaughter of innocent civilians. Before some crucial referendums and elections, and in view of recent EU and US criticisms, this won’t look good.
The revolt in the EU has already begun: French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU. Recently, the people of the Netherlands have voted ‘NO’ in a referendum on Ukraine’s EU association. These are the first harbingers of spring, more to come soon!
Ukraine’s war on monuments – war on its history and genetic memory
Scores and scores of Lenin monuments have been destroyed all over Ukraine. Let’s recall that ‘Ukraine’ as a state-like entity was first created by Lenin as part of the USSR. Before that, there was no country called Ukraine, not even an autonomy.
The destruction of Lenin and other monuments all over Ukraine is accompanied with the wholesale looting and re-sale of parts of these monuments. The video below shows how many such monuments were destroyed and how the enterprising ukro-nazis posted ads all over the internet to sell parts of ‘Illich.’ A whole bust of Lenin, painted in blue-yellow Ukrainian colors, slightly dented: $35,000. Another internet ad about a sale of parts of what used to be a Lenin monument: ‘own a piece of history: made out of rare material, the same used to build the Red Square Mausoleum, price depends on body part.’ Disgusted yet? I am.
If Ukraine’s president, parliament, oligarchs and army can sell the entire country, why can’t these small ‘wheelers-and-dealers’ sell pieces of their history and heritage?
Video (The map of destroyed monuments reads: ’25 monuments to Lenin were destroyed, 5 – attempted to be destroyed.’ By now, I’d say there are many more):
This is the newest one, which happened yesterday: in Kiev, Ukraine, Ukrainian fascists from ‘the right sector and ‘azov’ tried to destroy Soviet monument to Chekisti – RUS: чекисты. The monument is to the first Extraordinary Commission’s servicemen circa Russian Civil War and first years of the USSR (1918-1925). The abbreviation ‘чк’ (pronounced as ‘chekah’) was used to designate the counter-intelligence investigative unit, establish by Lenin in 1918. Later it would be called NKVD and after that, KGB.
Again, let’s remember that without Lenin the entity we today call Ukraine would NOT exist. The territory was slapped together of a number of different areas of South Russia (Yuzhnaya Rossia, aka, Novorossia) and Malorossia (below see my guide to the parts of Ukraine).
VIDEO: ukro-nazis attempting to destroy the granite monument, with hardly a dent.
While not everyone agrees with the methods used by the Chekisti, it is still a part of Russian, Soviet, and therefore Ukrainian, history. Its role was often viewed as controversial, but also necessary, for as long as the country was in the deathly fight for its very survival.
The right thing to do is to accept what happened as part of the country’s history. Only by making peace with the past can one move forward. If you deny your past, your history, you deny yourself. In this regard, Russians are wisely accepting all facets of their past, good and bad. This is why Russia today is where it is, and Ukraine is where it is.
The Chekisti monument was built to last. As you see from this short clip, despite many days of efforts to destroy it, the monument was hardly dented. As one person commented: ‘The Chekisti are just looking down with disdain on these morons.’
The destruction of monuments in Poland and Ukraine are manifestations of the same darkness-induced craze that we are observing in Syria, where ISIS destroys priceless, UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as ancient Palmyra.
Normal people build. The urge to destroy what others have built is a manifestation of an overwhelming darkness experienced by the confused, undereducated and zombified minds, with violent tendencies.
Ukraine is a large country. A small minority of these thugs keeps in fear the majority. But I have to emphasize yet again that none of this would have been possible if these dregs of society were not supported and encouraged by the West! The West, especially and specifically the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Brussels, as well as their stooges in Poland and Lithuania, actively supported and nudged these crazies.
During Kiev maidan, Victoria Nuland and US ambassador Payet personally blackmailed Ukraine president Yanukovich and PM Azarov, threatening them with forced removal from power and personal harm, if the government tried to resist maidan violence and restore order. Similar pressure was put by the EU governments and politicians.
Under any normal circumstances and in any normal society such people would have been in jail, which would deter others. Instead, they were touted as heroes. The all-permissiveness always breads more violence.
The biggest criminals are those from the West who came to Ukraine with the expressed goal to generate violence, hatred and death.
Due to severe imbalance, which the world has experienced in the past 25 years since the collapse of the USSR, the weakened Russia was unable to fulfill her global balancing and stabilizing role. Large numbers of the world’s young people have succumbed to propaganda. This propaganda could be Western, emphasizing Russophobia. But it could be extremist Islamist just as well. It could also be fascist propaganda, stressing the resurgence of the popularity of Hitler and Nazi ideology of hatred and destruction. All these may have a different wrapper and flavor, but their essence is always the same: aggression, hatred, destruction and harm to others, while enriching yourself.
Putin for president and Azarov for PM of Ukraine
Since 2014, most Ukrainians lived in shock and fear. Some were zombified and confused. But the change is coming, the awakening is happening, slowly but surely.
In BLACK SEA GAMBIT I said that if a referendum to join Russia took place in Odessa today, 90% would have voted ‘YES.’ Very similar numbers would be true for the entire South and East. Even Kiev and sane parts of western Ukraine may surprise us.
Kiev just swapped the inept PM Yatsenyuk, who presided over the 2014-2015 destruction of Ukraine’s economy, for the equally inept PM Groysman, who is Poroshenko’s puppet. A poll conducted in Kiev showed that only 29% approved of Groysman as PM, while 58% wanted back Nikolay Azarov, who was PM under Yanukovich. Some now say that ‘Azarov was the best thing that happened to Ukraine in 25 years.’
An earlier poll conducted in Ukraine showed that 82% of Ukrainians wanted Putin as their president.
Renaming of streets, factories and cities – another maniacal epidemics sweeping Ukraine
As part of ‘decommunization,’ streets, factories and major enterprises are being renamed. The citizens are resisting it as much as they can. There are instances when the new name sounds suspiciously similar to the old one. Example: under pressure, a factory in Donetsk oblast (the part located on Ukraine side), was renamed from the ‘Illich Kombinat’ to… the ‘Illich Kombinat.’ Illich is Lenin’s patronymic and he was often called by this alternative name. ‘We renamed it after a worker of this factory, whose patronymic was also Illich,’ explained the locals.
They made an attempt to rename Odessa and call it ‘Kotsyubiyivsk’ (try not to break your tongue). Of course, if they succeeded, that alone would have caused Odessa to secede.
Wholesale destruction of Russian monuments
Under the guise of decommunization, ukro-nazis are destroying monuments to Russian scientists, writers, artists and also generals, who liberated Ukraine during WWII. In 2014, under the cover of the night, they removed the Odessa monument to General Chernyakhovsky, who commanded the army liberating Odessa. I bet Chernyakhovsky’s bust has already been sold to the highest bidder. Just like the ancient monuments of Syria, Ukrainian monuments, or their pieces, end up on the black market, often being sold to Western ‘collectors.’
Odessa, monument to Pushkin on Primorsky Boulevard
This greedy and senseless destruction of everything in sight is happening all over Ukraine. Recently, the famous monument to the 19th century writer Pushkin was under threat in Odessa. Ukro-nazis are continuously threatening to destroy the gorgeous monument to Katherine the Great, founder of Odessa. Obviously, aristocrat Pushkin and the Empress of Russia were ‘damn communists’ and had to be purged. Both monuments are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and were saved due to the widespread international indignation.
LADA’S GUIDE TO UKRAINE
End of 19th century English map of South Russia and Malorossia (Little Russia)
Ukraine was slapped together out of several parts, of which the majority was, and continues being, completely Russian-speaking, despite all the brainwashing. This was done by Lenin in 1922 for several reasons: geopolitical, internal political, psychological and ideological. I explain in detail what those reasons were in ESR2: UKRAINE and ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS.
While we all were a part of one big Soviet Union, no one was bothered by it that much. People were prepared to tolerate being a part of Ukraine even after the breakup, as long as they were able to easily commute to Russia for better jobs, sell their stuff to Russia, and be a part of the Russian culture through TV, books and concerts. But now they are unable to do any of that: Russian TV, journalists, artists, writers, cultural icons and political figures have been banned in Ukraine.
I believe I’ve mentioned this in Black Sea Gambit: Kiev is so afraid of the truth that they have banned me and my blog, FuturisTrendcast! Ukrainians can’t read my blog directly, but of course, there are many methods to bypass the ban in a roundabout way.
As soon as these bans began happening, this is when everyone suddenly began remembering that in fact they were never supposed to be a part of Ukraine, that Kiev usurped power and that they really wanted to go back to their roots.
Parts of Russia that became parts of Ukraine in 1922 and later:
Donbass (spelled out as the Donets Basin – RUS: Donetskiy Bassein) – presently Donetsk/DNR and Lugansk/LNR.
South Russia, basically consisting of the historic Tavria and Bessarabia. The Black Sea coast, including Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson. Pridnestrovie (breakaway Transnistria) and pars of Moldova are included. The famous Tavrian steppes stretch along Black Sea from Odessa to Kherson and into Crimea.
Crimea (aka, Tavrida) – now a part of Russia again.
True Russian territories, including the ancient Chernigov, Kharkov/ Slobozhanshina (the area which was part of the lands gifted by Empress to the South Russian Cossacks), Dnepropetrovsk and more – what is often referred to as ‘Eastern Ukraine.’ Dnepropetrovsk, located next to Zaporozhie, is also a part of the traditionally Cossack territory.
Original Zaporozhie Cossacks territories – presently the industrial city of Zaporozhie and Zaporozhie Oblast. I talk at length and explain everything about the amazing, colorful culture of the South Russian Cossacks in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE.
Everything I listed above is historically referred to as Novorossia (New Russia), although of course Russians (Russo-Arian Slavs) lived on these lands for millennia.
Present capital Kiev and poor, agricultural center and north of today’s Ukraine 1000+ years ago were called Kievan Rus, and 300-100 years ago – Malorossia.
Today’s Western Ukraine is correctly called Galitskaya Rus and Podkarpatskaya Rus. These are the lands of the Galician and Carpathian Rusins (RUS: Rusini; incorrect English: Ruthenians). During medieval times there was a pretty large Galitskaya Rus state there, which was invaded at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, who eventually destroyed it.
How Putin/Lavrov Outplayed Merkel, Hollande, Obama
& Why Poroshenko Cannot Restart Donbass War
In the midst of today’s gruesome Ukrainian landscape, there is something that has, perhaps, a more positive tone.
Donetsk warns of imminent Kiev attack on DNR and LNR
Donbass braces itself for the new offensive by Kiev. Eduard Basurin from DNR ministry of defence and the head of DNR, Alexander Zakharchenko, continue to warn that Kiev is amassing troops and hardware in order to attack both republics.
However, as I said previously, I simply do not see how they may be able to pull it off (read my analysis in Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf?
Additional analysis and predictions
The thing is that Poroshenko has to make certain noises to appease the radicals and ukro-nazis. But as far as real actions go, he really is tied up pretty tight. Besides, as we have determined previously, Ukraine is being slowly but surely ‘flushed down’ by the US and EU (as I predicted since 2014).
The Dutch referendum on Ukraine’s EU association sent a clear message. So did Biden’s advice to Kiev Rada to begin federalization process ASAP. So did yesterday’s French parliament’s vote to lift anti-Russian sanctions (French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU). And this is just the beginning!
But there is more:
The more information comes out about the atrocities and lies of the Kiev junta, the more EU citizens question the position of their governments. Europeans question more and more the propaganda that told them that Russia was bad, Kiev maidan was good and that EU did the right thing backing Kiev together with USA. The longer anti-Russian sanctions last, the more EU farmers, shippers and industrialists get impatient. Meanwhile some notice that while EU trade with Russia shrunk dangerously, US trade with Russia INCREASED! And that’s in the midst of sanctions! Slowly, US companies are taking over EU business with Russia.
More and more Europeans are realizing they were simply duped and the revolt is brewing.
Merkel, Hollande and other former advocates of anti-Russian sanctions now have no choice but to support Minsk-2 peace agreement at all cost, since the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions has been tied to its fulfillment. In a way, EU as a whole has cornered itself by imposing sanctions on Russia and tying them to Minsk-2 fulfillment.
Neither DNR/LNR nor Kiev are really planning to fulfill Minsk 2 in full. It is actually impossible to do so while this Kiev junta is in power. Poroshenko and his government can PRETEND to implement only certain points. The entire Minsk-2 in principle cannot be implemented until after the ukro-nazi Kiev junta is gone.
This signifies that:
1. What I said from the beginning of 2014: EU elites are inept and don’t understand at all what they are doing, which European citizens are finally beginning to grasp.
2. Merkel, Hollande and others will have to support Donbass truce at all cost. They are being watched by opposition and electorate. The alternative means they and/or their parties will lose the next election for sure. Recall my 2012 prediction about Hollande betraying the hopes of his electorate! As to Merkel, the recent 11% drop in her ratings will continue accelerating. All in all, her political career is finished. It’ll take time, but she’s on her way down.
3. EU supporting Poroshenko’s new offensive on DNR/LNR will give additional ammunition to eurosceptics and accelerate the breakup of the EU.
4. As I predicted in 2014, Putin and Lavrov were absolutely right not to antagonize Europe, continuing to patiently work with them throughout Ukraine crisis and despite their openly provocative, anti-Russian attitudes. This patience and lack of antagonism looks a little toothless to some. I had said that it was the only correct approach.
We’ve already been through this in 2008 with Georgia and several times during 2000s, when Ukraine shut off Russian gas to EU. They yell and scream, and stomp their feet. Then they calm down and recognize that Russia isn’t a monster and that, may be, just may be, they jumped the gun.
I know, I know. Putin, Lavrov, and Russia in general, are the only adults in the room and their patience is truly angelic. While Obama and US destabilize everything they get their hands on, Russian foreign policy is the only thing that keeps the world from plunging into a new global war.
VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Odessa’s cold spring 2016: city and oblast are bracing for blood and violence on May 2 and May 9!
This spring is especially hard for Odessa. After Crimea and DNR/LNR, Odessa is the biggest symbol of resistance against the Kiev junta. May 2, 2016 is the 2nd anniversary of the terrible tragedy, when 48, or likely more, people were burned alive on Kulikovo Polie. Kiev and ukro-nazis, together with Saakashvili, are determined to make a bloodbath out of the May 2 and May 9 in Odessa. Thousands and thousands of trained ukro-nazis from ‘azov’ battalion and western Ukraine have descended on Odessa. Provocations are expected everywhere. Tensions are the highest since 2014. Basically, people are gearing up for civil war and fear the repeat of May 2 massacre.
What is happening can be big and is also a harbinger of important changes in Ukraine and around the Russian World.
On Monday, May 2,
I’ll publish part 2 of the UKRAINE report: The ODESSA Report!
Read it in conjunction with my timely ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT,
dedicated primarily to Odessa & Black Sea events and conspiracies!
Kherson Oblast is dying — and Crimean Agenda ESR
As I remember it growing up, Kherson once was a quiet sleepy hollow, complete with untouched, contemplative nature, robust agriculture and down to earth people.
Kherson is dying: it is experiencing a disastrous invasion of ukro-nazis and Islamists from ISIS, Turkey and Crimean Tatar Mejlis, which is recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia. The damage to the environment is terrible and the damage to the population is catastrophic.
Their ultimate goal is to squeeze out the native, Slavic population and replace it with Muslim transplants. It may sound crazy and bizarre, but it’s not so incredible if you look at the map and notice that Kherson Oblast borders Crimea to the south – the only land connection to the Crimean Peninsula.
Having lost Crimea, US, Turkey and Kiev have concocted a plan to destabilize it through Kherson. All this is a part of the bigger agenda to destabilize Russia by creating zones of instability all around Black and Caspian Seas. To those who plan all this, people’s lives don’t matter.
All this is the topic of the upcoming new Earth Shift Report
It’s an explosive and eye-opening Earth Shift Report, crucial for understanding the Russian and global geopolitical situation. However, due to urgent May events surrounding Odessa, Russia and EU, I’ll be postponing it till further notice. Since Crimean – Kherson situation is still in development, CRIMEAN AGENDA will come a little later. Please stay tuned!
The present focus is on hot EU developments!
New, surprise Earth Shift Report coming your way!
I received a lot of questions from readers regarding TTIP, Brexit, the possibility of the breakup of the EU, the Dutch, German and French revolts, etc. Therefore, I am preparing a surprise Earth Shift Report in which I’ll address all that, and more!
Formal announcement coming! Stay tuned!

This is the latest from Kiev: prime minister of Ukraine Yatsenyuk just announced his resignation. His resignation will be discussed in the Rada on April 12. Last time he attempted this, it was rejected. Will it be accepted this time?
I have to say that the first word that comes to mind is: FINALLY! Not because something will improve in Ukraine after Yatsenyuk’s resignation. Not at all. It is likely to get worse before it has any hope of getting better. Unfortunately, this US/EU project called ‘ukro-nazi oligarchic and Russophobic Kiev junta’ has plunged the territory formerly known as Ukraine into disaster, destroyed its economy, currency and created enemies out of people who used to call themselves brothers. But the bottom still has not been reached. There is still some way to fall…
Yatsenyuk has been trying to resign since last year, while Rada refused to let him go. Not because he is indispensable; just the opposite: he presided over the wholesale destruction of Ukraine’s economy. It was his job and this is what he was hired to do: this entire ukro-nazi Kiev junta is a demolition crew in order to leave ruins where Ukraine once was. Failing the creation of a full fledged aggressive anti-Russia (like Hitler’s Germany once, but much closer), the next best thing was to leave Ukraine in a shambles, making Russia spend resources to rebuild it (all this discussed in detail in Ukraine-related Earth Shift Reports (ESRs 2, 3, 6, 8) and Predictions).
Recently, IMF again confirmed that the new tranche of IMF loans to Ukraine is being ‘postponed.’ Translation from the bankster slang: Ukraine will never get any more IMF loans, for as long as this junta is in power. The initial IMF loan promise to Ukraine was about $16 bln, while by all estimates, Ukraine needed at least $33 bln to survive. Last time IMF had disbursed a $3 bln (if memory serves) tranche was over 7 months ago. Since then, IMF was forced to recognize Ukraine’s debt of $3 bln to Russia as a sovereign debt, something Kiev vehemently denied. This effectively made it impossible for the global banking consortium to disburse any more loans to Ukraine. IMF rules state that a country in default of sovereign debt cannot receive loans. If they broke their own golden rule it would signify breakdown of the entire Western banking model. At this point, if IMF gave Ukraine another loan, then Russia, as creditor No. 1, would take precedence and IMF money would be immediately paid to Russia. In other words, Ukraine wouldn’t get anything anyway.
In truth, the recognition of Kiev’s $3 bln debt to Russia as sovereign was just a pretext to begin dumping Ukraine as the failed project to create anti-Russia on Russian borders. I predicted this outcome since early 2014. See more in PREDICTIONS, Ukraine ESRs and Ukraine archived articles on FT.
Poroshenko went around the world begging for loans wherever he could: US, Turkey, even Japan. He got something like several hundred million, with heavy strings attached, plus a ‘guarantee for $1 bln’ from the US. Guarantee means that IF anyone wants to give Kiev money, then US would act as guarantor. No takers so far.
The situation in the economy is dire: for the oligarchs, Kiev politicians and military there is less and less left to steal.
Here is an interesting fact: since 2014 Kiev coup ALL Ukraine oligarchs lost a huge percentage of their wealth. All, except one: president Poroshenko by many estimates increased his fortune by seven times. He started at his presidential post with $600 million. Now his fortune is worth several billion dollars. Watch my video/audio report on YouTube:
Most of those who were rich and powerful before the coup lost money and assets at a huge rate (read ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS). In fact, most Ukraine oligarchs mentioned in ESR3 aren’t billionaires any more; they have now been downgraded to mere multi-millionaires.
However, there was another person in power who benefited tremendously during the time of a wholesale destruction of Ukraine. In fact, he is called Thief No. 1 and his name is PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk. This one isn’t an oligarch and he doesn’t need assets, like Poroshenko or Kolomoysky. He just wants lots of dollars, plain and simple. During the past two years, and especially during his PM tenure, he stole over $1 bln. Moreover, in the same period he also acquired Canadian citizenship.
This brings us to the direct reason why Yatsenyuk is in a hurry to resign. He sees the writing on the wall: economy destroyed, no one is willing to give Kiev loans. Soon Ukrainians all over the country will begin rioting again. It is clear that anti-Russia project failed and this artificially created and maintained country has no future. It is also clear that Transatlantic bosses have begun ‘flushing down’ Ukraine.
Yatsenyuk was installed by US to demolish Ukraine’s economy. He achieved his purpose. US, represented by Joe Biden, Rada and Poroshenko want to keep Yatsenyuk around. Someone has to be designated as a scapegoat when sh*t hits the fan. Yatsenyuk is already the most hated politician in the country, with basically zero% rating. With nickname ‘blood-thirsty rabbit’ for his role in Donbass ATO and support of killing Russians, he is perfect for the role.
Yatsenyuk knows he needs to get out while he can. Rats continue abandoning the ship.
RT vid shows tariff hikes in Ukraine while Yatsenyuk was PM:
Read my article with telling videos: Kiev Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar (Saakashvili, Avakov, Yatsenyuk and Idiocracy Plus)
Who will come after Yatsenyuk? This is an interesting question. It can be US citizen and present finance minister of Ukraine Natalie Jareska, who is being pushed by the US. Or it can be the ‘bloody pastor’ Turchinov, who first authorized ATO and shelling of peaceful people in Donbass. More acceptable to some is the figure of the Rada speaker Groysman. (I have written about connection of Yatsenyuk, Poroshenko and Groysman to global Zionist organization Chabad and American Zionists in Earth Shift Report 6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?)
For a time US tried to install as Ukraine PM the current Odessa governor and wanted ex-Georgia president Saakashvili. He was the rumored frontrunner until he made enemies in the majority of Kiev elites (read much more about what games are being played by Saakashvili and his US bosses in the latest Earth Shift Report 8: BLACK SEA AGENDA).
These are potential candidates for the new PM position, Groysman being the current favorite.
However, I say who cares who will be next? Whoever they install in this post will be yet another puppet of the same forces; he/she will forward the same agenda and will also use this position to siphon the little wealth that still remains in the country.
Incidentally, it was Yatsenyuk who authorized the transfer to the US of Ukraine’s gold, including priceless Scythian gold (Gold of the Skiffs).
The wholesale looting of Ukraine continues. What will next PM steal? Not much is left – they have to hurry.
Sadly, my 2014 prediction, ‘before Ukraine starts turning back to Russia between 2016 and 2018 its economy will be completely destroyed,’ is materializing fully. Yesterday I listened to an update from Natalia Vitrenko, leader of now banned Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine and prominent economist. According to Vitrenko, per capita GDP of Ukraine is now about 140th out of 180 tracked countries, behind Papua New Guinea. In 1990, when Ukraine was together with Russia, its GDP was No. 10 in the world. Further, Ukraine is now No.1 in the world in per capita mortality rate. All this happened in the past 2 years.
Meanwhile, Kiev propaganda keeps telling Ukrainians that Russia is about to collapse and disintegrate, that Ukraine army is about to retake Crimea and that US is behind them 100%.
I had already predicted all there was to predict about the future of Ukraine. Now it’s time to sit back and watch the future unfold. See: Predictions and new Trends & Predictions page on LadaRay.info.
I won’t repeat all these predictions. I’ll just say this: the sooner the still remaining in the country sane Ukrainians wake up (many normal ones were forced to flee ukro-nazis), stop listening to Kiev MSM/political propaganda and begin seeing the situation in their country for what it is, the less pain and suffering they will have to go through as a result, when sh*t does hit the fan.
I know, I am asking for logic, reason and clear thinking where there is none. Ukraine will have no choice but to wake up, and it will be a painful awakening. Due to how zombified the population has become, the awakening will only happen when US and EU dump Ukraine. The process of ‘flushing down’ has already begun. It will intensify in 2017.
Yatsenyuk wants to get out before it becomes visible to all. He bought himself Canadian citizenship and his private jet is on standby. Same is true for Poroshenko and other Ukraine criminals. But the majority of the population won’t be able to escape. There is simply no place for them to run…
Moreover, I can tell you that the name of ‘Ukraine’ as a state will cease to exist within 10 years, possibly as little as 6 years. There was no Ukraine before 19th century (I wrote about that in ESR2: UKRAINE – TRUTH, LIES, FUTURE HOPE) and the situation will revert to its historical equilibrium in time.
I personally vote for Novorossia as the new name.
France Recognizes Novorossia?
As a matter of fact, French TV channel ITELE for the first time ever aired a map of Novorossia, in which they included: Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhie, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson oblasts.
The above oblasts is what is traditionally included in Novorossia.
However, something is telling me that the Novorossia that is coming will be substantially bigger in scope… Just kidding. I know for a fact it will be much larger than that! Consider it one of my predictions!
You may know that my personal view and prediction is that most of today’s Ukraine will within 1-2 years turn towards Russia and that only Russia can pacify, rebuild and keep what is now Ukraine whole. Of course, it will be under another name…

Nemo (Stanislav) is doing a marvelous and important job of translating various documentaries and documents from Russian into English. These translations cut through language barriers and reveal the truths to our Western readers, which otherwise wouldn’t be heard and known. Please read his new English translations (and follow his blog, too)!
- Translation of a fragment of a Russian documentary, which goes well along with Lada’s FT article How to Tell a Hoax from Targeted Info Dump (MSM/ Alternative Media) : http://stanislavs.org/the-nets-of-deception-false-reality-documentary-fragment-with-english-subtitles/
- ‘I finished translating the large documentary about the Ukrainian history: http://stanislavs.org/project-ukraine-documentary-by-andrei-medvedev-with-english-subtitles/. Alas, it was immediately “blocked worldwide” by YouTube: “Copyrighted content was found in your video.” Interesting that they took almost the whole film. The film itself is created by Rossia24 and has nothing to do with BigMovieNetwork. Until I upload this video to RuTube, one can grab the untranslated video from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvpAeGeqd4Q and then apply the subtitles, available from download from my site.’
Upcoming PUTIN’S INTERNATIONAL LIVE Q&A (Nemo’s info in response to Lada’s post Putin shows German skills, unexpectedly steps in as translator at international journalist forum):
‘That was a really nice gesture on Putin’s part. This whole press-conference had such a relaxed, informal, friendly atmosphere.

Two years after Maidan and February 22, 2014 Coup
Nearly two years after Crimea seceded and re-joined Russia
Soon to be two years after Donetsk & Lugansk referendums resulting in DNR/LNR & civil war
One year after Minsk peace agreements
Replaced by Syria and the Middle East, Ukraine has been out of headlines. But the new documentaries are coming out in Europe, beginning to reveal the truth of what really went on on Kiev Maidan. The picture painted in the new documentaries is stark different from the pretty lie the Kiev junta, assisted by its US bosses, tried to present for two years. Europe isn’t buying the Kiev propaganda any more, and that’s a big step forward. I have been talking about the real truth in connection with Ukraine, Kiev junta, ukro-nazis and Ukraine fascist battalions since the beginning of 2014. I am glad that the mainstream is starting to catch up.
While the world is watching Syria and US presidential debates, breaking news from Ukraine are as volatile as they were two years ago. Are ukro-nazis ready to execute Coup 2.0 to coincide with the second anniversary of Maidan? Should it happen, what to expect next?
After power, water and food blockade of Crimea last year, Ukraine has now blockaded Russian cargo truck transit to the EU. How far will these people go in their desire to hurt Russia, and who is paying them?
Let’s take a look back at how it all began and what global manipulations were behind the coup; let’s review the true, forbidden history of Ukraine and its distortions; let’s look back at my original 2014 predictions and how they are coming along! We’ll assess what has been achieved in the two years after Maidan and where it’s all heading for Ukraine, Russia, EU, US, and the world in general. Finally, let’s hear my new and updated predictions!

Donetsk Republic’s Ministry of Defence Briefing: Jan. 29, 2016 Ceasefire Violations by Kiev – ENG SUBS
Donetsk Republic’s Ministry of Defence Briefing: Multiple Ceasefire Violations by Kiev – in Russian, with ENG SUBS
January 29th, 2016 briefing by Donetsk Republic’s (DNR) Ministry of Defence spokesman Eduard Basurin.
Donetsk Republic announced that they had uncovered secret plans for a new massive attack on Donetsk and Lugansk by Kiev.
I have translated/summarised the urgent announcement by DNR Defence Spokesman, Eduard Basurin.
DNR received this secret intel from high level sources within Kiev army ranks.
Kiev amassed 90,000 troops on Ukraine/DNR-LNR (Novorossia) border, preparing to attack. This armed force includes 450 tanks, 2500 armored vehicles, 5 heavy rocket launchers Tochka-U and thousands in various artillery hardware. This army has been concentrated in four key locations. Mariupol, to attack Donetsk from the south; central to attack Donetsk from the west; third one to cut off Donetsk from Lugansk and fourth to attack Lugansk from the north. The reserve group is located behind these four army groupings. The north and south groupings will also cut off LNR and DNR from the Russian border in order to stop humanitarian assistance and close the circle around both republics, thus suffocating them.
Video with maps:
On August 24, Ukraine celebrates its independence day. According to intel, today Poroshenko (oligarch, president), Yatsenyuk (oligarch, PM) and Klichko (boxer, mayor of Kiev) will announce a coalition of their three parties in order to run together in the upcoming local elections.
Ukraine will have local elections in October. Poroshenko’s ratings are down and even his former cronies distrust him. The right sector is threatening to start maidan-3 at any moment. Attempts to start a new maidan have been made by various groups, mainly protesting the economic collapse, shortages, hyperinflation and unemployment. However, every protest attempt has been squashed.
But anger and severe disappointment are brewing all over Ukraine. One day they will boil over.
Yatsenyuk’s rating is basically zero. So is Klichko’s, who can hardly string two words together and therefore is considered unfit for office. However, these three have a muscle in the form of their parties, which they lavishly finance out of those billions they stole.
Yatsenyuk is the darling of the US and Klichko is Angela Merkel’s personal protegé. Poroshenko used to be a compromise figure, convenient for both US and EU. But it appears that time has passed as no one accepts him well any more. However, Poroshenko’s ability to cling to power cannot be underestimated. He will do anything to hang on. The alternative is basically the international tribunal for crimes against humanity. Yatsenyuk and Klichko are in the same boat.
At the same time, they all have done very well for themselves, having looted what they could from the country. Oligarch Poroshenko’s wealth went up 7-fold in his one year of presidency (I had a video about that) and Yatsenyuk is now officially a dollar billionaire.
However, these three know they would lose these local elections in many regions. This is why they must try to unite.
My intel says that people in cities of Kherson and Nikolaev (south/Black Sea area) would prefer the Opposition Block. It consists of sort of remnants of the Party of the Regions and certain minor oligarchs who are for better relations with Russia, while also maintaining closer relations with the EU. In addition to the above, there are also some relatively honest people in the Opposition Block.
In Odessa, if elections were semi-honest (and this is a huge IF), the winners could be the pro-Russian, pro-Odessa-autonomy, anti-Kiev party Rodina (Motherland), and possibly also Opposition Block. Rodina is one of the main forces still legally remaining in opposition. They used to have good positions in the city council, however, many of them had to flee Ukraine and are now in exile.
A few do remain, such as my favorite Odessa politician, Grigory Kvasnyuk. Generally, there are very few opposition leaders still remaining in Odessa, who are still capable of staying afloat in today’s environment. Kvasnyuk, for instance, is constantly called to SBU for interrogations. Some of those who were able to provide a meaningful opposition perished in the May 2, 2014 fire on Kulikovo Polie, some were chased out of the country, some thrown in jail. Same picture is true for any other region of Ukraine.
However, Rodina still presents a danger to powers that be. This is why its leader, former Rada deputy Igor Markov was recently arrested by Interpol (!) in Italy, where he was on vacation, based on a trumped-up charge that he caused public disturbance in Odessa in 2007 (8 years ago!). This charge had been overturned several times by various courts, but it still get manipulated for political reasons.
The primary reason for the attack on Markov is his joining of the Committee for the Salvation of Ukraine co-organized by him, ex-PM of Ukraine Azarov and ex-Rada deputy Oleynik. The arrest, which will be overturned eventually, still will slow down the preparation for local elections and discourage the beheaded party Rodina. This is what Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk are counting on. Odessa remains a trouble spot and a huge sore for the Kiev junta, despite putting Georgian ex-president and wanted criminal Saakashvili in charge of Odessa oblast. Everything will be done to prevent decent people from being elected into city council.
Generally, Odessa is very oppressed and suppressed; people are afraid to speak up. The situation is very similar in Kiev, Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk.
The situation in Donbass is the following: Donbass is roughly divided into two halves. One half belongs with Donetsk and Lugansk Republics and another half is under junta occupation. We all remember that on May 11, 2014, the people of then Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts in their entirety voted in a referendum against Kiev junta and ukro-nazis, and for their independence. That was well before the war started.
It is understood that people all over the occupied parts of Donbass will vote for those candidates who are the closest to the Republics and furthest from the junta. This may create the situation in which these areas are formally under Kiev, but de-facto a part of LNR and DNR.
Widespread electoral fraud is also expected throughout Ukraine. However, my intel suggests that Russia, Eurasian Union and SCO are sending large election monitoring delegations to each polling station on the occupied territory of Donbass. Therefore, at least in Donbass fraud may be very hard to execute.
That’s why Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk and Klichko are scrambling to join forces, attempting to boost their numbers. However, this will likely not help their chances. They are risking losing the rest of Donbass without a single shot fired, based on democratic elections.
This is one of the main reasons for the intensified shelling of Donetsk: Poroshenko and his puppet masters are attempting to make DNR and LNR lose their cool and counter-attack. After that, DNR/LNR get accused of breaking Minsk accords and the new round of sanctions against Russia begins.
According to my intel, if DNR/LNR don’t lose their cool, watching their peaceful population being bombed every day, Kiev plans to re-start war by beginning its own massive attack, as seen above. In either event, the escalation of conflict will allow Kiev to cancel local elections.
The plan is multi-prong and multi-layered, according to the best CIA playbook. The biggest prize is always Russia. The ultimate goal, if DNR/LNR are attacked full force and Minsk agreements are broken, is a renewed attempt to make Russia lose her cool and send troops to protect Donbass.
We know it was attempted multiple times since last year in Donbass, Kharkov and Odessa. The latest provocation this summer was to fully blockade Pridnestrovie, where Russian peacekeepers and at least 100,000 Russian citizens reside. That was a very dangerous moment, which I watched very closely.
The Pridnestrovie blockade was orchestrated by the US agents Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk together with Romania, in order to drag Russia into an open war. However, it didn’t work out due to several skillful maneuvers by Russia and EU. Instead of Ukraine, Moldova opened its borders for Russian supplies, thus releasing pressure, at least temporarily.
The story of Pridnestrovie is still very convoluted and the next big problem is anticipated in December, 2015. All this is connected to the general Black Sea geopolitical fault line that is ripening at this time. I am watching it and will probably do a piece or two on it later in the year. Stay tuned!
Today Ukraine is celebrating its independence-from-Russia day. Some call it: ‘the independence from the common sense day.’
After participating in early celebrations and officially announcing his alliance with Yatsenyuk and Klichko, Poroshenko will the same day fly to Berlin to meet with Merkel and Hollande. Therefore, the announcement of the Porosh-Yats-Klich election coalition has been deliberately orchestrated to coincide with the independence day – for internal consumption, and with the trip to Berlin – for external consumption.
Poroshenko is trying to demonstrate something to the EU. That he is serious about staying in his post? That he means business and wants to win local elections? Or that he can in fact work with others? Or he thinks that’s how he can get more money? All of the above, I think.
There are many speculations why he is meeting with EU leaders without Putin (the Minsk and Normandy formats assume four parties participating). My view is that Lavrov and Putin have tried to instill in Holande and Merkel that Russia won’t tolerate a new escalation in Donbass, especially before the elections. It appears Poroshenko is being called on the carpet for a bit of reprimand and thrashing, but also to promise him more support if he behaves a little better.
Most analysts are sounding alarm over the upcoming new war escalation, predicting a major attempt by Ukraine to re-establish its control over entire Donbass and the Russian border. Access to the Russian border is crucial for the Republics. It is their only lifeline.
I can tell you right away such plan is absolutely doomed and this Kiev junta will never be able to take over DNR and LNR, nor the Russian border. Previous attempts to attack DNR and LNR resulted in Debaltsevo and Illovaisk cauldrons with thousands of Ukraine troops dead or taken prisoner. They won’t succeed, however, they can unfortunately cause a lot more death and destruction.
That said, Russia is now using any and all diplomatic leverage with EU to make EU pressure Poroshenko into backing off. EU isn’t interested in a new military escalation either. EU is now facing African/Middle Eastern migrant crisis of staggering proportions (see my post). They can’t afford any additional instability to the east.
At least in that, Russia and EU are united. However hard the US tries to portray a united front against Russia, EU and US are experiencing a widening rift over Ukraine. I wrote previously that EU cannot rebel openly against the US because every time they are attempting an even remotely independent policy, France or Germany experience a false flag.
They have to tread very softly, thus a very low-key meeting with Poroshenko in Berlin. Ukraine will likely be promised more money from the EU, as a sort of carrot, if it at least attempts to observe certain appearances.
So far, Ukraine has been kept on life support by both US and EU. This ties up US and EU resources. The longer such situation lasts, the better for Russia.
The initial idea was to put a wedge between Russia and EU, exhaust and break Russian economy, create anti-Russia out of Ukraine and tie up the Russian army in Ukraine after Russia would break down and send peacekeepers to Ukraine.
None of the above worked our very well for the ‘planners.’ There is a school of thought that suggests that Russia is tying up a lot of resources supporting Donbass (about 2.5 million people left there since the war started), therefore, weakening her economy.
But Donbass is one of the most developed territories of the former Ukraine, which provided during good times up to 30% of Ukraine’s GDP. Donbass can support itself.
The rest of Ukraine is much larger in size and much less productive. Kiev, western and central Ukraine were subsidised by Donbass and the rest of the South-East.
Pay attention, US and EU taxpayers! US is stuck having to support the entire Ukraine: 30-35 million people and the territory the size of France. Nuland and US State Dept spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine. How much do they spend daily now to KEEP UKRAINE ON LIFE SUPPORT, especially considering all the crooks and thieves in power, pocketing most of the US and EU infusions?
In addition to IMF and EU loans, EU provides hidden subsidies in the form of reverse gas supplies from Slovakia, Hungary and Romania. Ukraine prides itself on having gotten away from the ‘dependence’ on Russian gas.
The new gas supply route to Ukraine looks like this: first Russia send gas via Ukraine to Central Europe, or via Nord Stream to Germany. Then, part of this gas purchased by the EU gets sent BACK to Ukraine to make it seem as if Ukraine is independent from Russia. The price of what is called ‘reverse gas supply’ is lower than Ukraine pays directly to Russia.
And now a trick question: who do you think subsidises this gas and who pays for it when Ukraine, the country in de-facto default, can’t pay? That’s right, the EU taxpayers, especially Germans.
Of course, Ukraine still has to buy some gas directly from Russia, but Russia has put Ukraine on a strict pre-payment schedule.
Previously, Russia subsidised for years Ukraine’s gas purchases. The money saved on this new gas arrangement can be spent on Donbass.
Having lost some serious electric power capacity after DNR and LNR seceded (they produce 30% of former Ukraine’s electricity), Ukraine also buys electricity from Russia at subsidised prices. Russia still continues subsidising Ukraine’s electricity. Part of it is in fact Donbass electricity, which now goes through Russia and then gets routed to Ukraine in a round about way.
All the above attests to the idiocy of the Kiev junta. Just like in that old sad joke: to spite my enemy I’ll kill my goat so my children would have no milk.
Instead of having good relations with Russia and buying gas directly at a good price, they prefer to beg EU for reverse supply, inconveniencing everyone in the process. Instead of buying electricity directly from Donbass, they declare a war against them so Donbass routes its produced electricity to Russia, after which Kiev begs its enemy No. 1 Russia to sell them some electricity. When god wants to punish someone, he takes away their reason…
Of course, that’s exactly what the puppet masters who are pulling Ukraine’s strings want. They can’t manipulate sane people. They need crazies and crooks for their plan to work. Since Ukraine has turned into the world’s largest insane asylum cum mafia state, they are having a feast.
I know, the news aren’t as rainbowy as many of my readers would like. But every cloud has a silver lining. The crazier they act, the sooner the population of Ukraine will start awakening from this madness. The signs are already there. The diplomacy at large is working better and better. The restrained Russian position is already heard by some in the EU, and more and more are starting to doubt the official party line.
Recall my timeline for the turnaround in Ukraine: 2016-18. We are getting closer and it’s all developing according to plan.

Earth Shift Report 3: OLIGARCH WARS. This very comprehensive report contains lots about Ukraine oligarchs: Poroshenko, Kolomoysky and many others; about Putin and Russian oligarchs, such as Berezovsky, Prokhorov and Khodorkovsky; about Ukraine’s realities and dirty underbelly; plus, Lada reveals why Ukraine turned out this way after the collapse of the USSR. To top it off, the secret of USA’s real role in Ukraine is revealed.

According to Kiev’s official data, as voiced by the Attorney General of Ukraine, since last year, eight thousand Ukraine military defected to the side of Donetsk and Lugansk Republics: five thousand policemen and three thousand combat personnel.
I previously wrote about high-profile defections from Ukraine. This is the latest. This high-ranking officer of the National Guard says he was given unlawful orders to install internationally banned land mines in E. Ukraine. When he refused and blew the whistle, he was fired and had to flee the country.
This new revelation is likely to open a floodgate of investigations into the inhumane and illegal practices of the Kiev junta in E. Ukraine. And this is just the beginning!
The newest revelations will do a lot to withdraw the EU support for the Kiev junta. After EU support is gone, it will be harder and harder for the US to justify theirs.
Here are some latest telling statistics from Ukraine:
The latest poll shows that 84% of Ukrainians want Russian President Vladimir Putin as the leader of their country. This effectively means that the vast majority of Ukrainians understand into what kind of abyss the Kiev junta is leading them.
Despite the overwhelming anti-Russian and anti-Putin propaganda spread by Kiev and Ukraine MSM, the population isn’t blind. Ukrainian people, most of whom are tired of war and want peace, start recalling the Chechen conflict and its swift and brilliant resolution by Putin. At the time Putin came in, he had on his hands the devastating Chechen war and all of Russia with destroyed economy and depressed population. Back in the 90s, I remember some Russians telling me dejectedly that the Chechen war would never end – and those people weren’t simpletons; to many well-known business people and analysts the Chechen war at the time seemed like a perma-conflict with no way out.
The conflict in Ukraine, to those who are ruled by emotions and lack perspective, also seems like a conflict without resolution. But it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Back then, Putin found the right person whom he entrusted the leadership of Chechnya; the agreements and necessary deals were struck and kept, the place was rebuilt and the entire situation was reversed to the point that the majority of Chechens are presently some of the biggest Russian patriots.
It is no wonder that Ukrainians want Putin. They should take the ticket and get in line.
Another poll suggests that presently 61% of Ukrainians want to leave their country permanently. Just two years ago, polls showed that such high percentage of those who wanted to emigrate only existed among the young generation. Now the population in general, including those who work and the elderly, want to leave the country. (Both poll numbers are from this interview (Rus).)
I explained previously that once Ukraine separated from Russia in 1991, people stopped believing in their country. Very quickly after, the most educated, thinking and capable people left. The vacuum was filled with inferior element from western and central Ukraine, who were purposefully appointed to top positions and who systematically removed the old, deeply cherished cultural and inter-generational connections with Russia and the Russian world, substituting them with invented lies. All this process was orchestrated and directed from abroad, by those from the US, Canada, Poland, Romania, Lithuania and Germany who wanted revenge and destruction of Russia and the Russian World.
The population of Ukraine under USSR was 54 mln people. Before 2014 it officially decreased to 45 million. However, in the past 23 years of ‘nezalezhnost’ = independence, 5-7 million Ukrainians have been working in Russia and probably 1.5-2 million in the West. Crimea and Donbass secession decreased the population by another 5-7 million. Another 3 million or so are refugees that left Ukraine for Russia or any other country they could. Therefore, the real population of Ukraine is now no more than 30 million people – down from 54 million in 1990.
Another bit of news: those anti-junta politicians and journalists of various political views who escaped from Ukraine after the 2014 coup are starting to organize an alternative government in exile. The organization, whose first conference took place in Moscow, is called the ‘Fund for the Salvation of Ukraine.’ It is headed by the former PM of Ukraine under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov. Unlike Yanukovich, Azarov is remembered positively in Ukraine and beyond for the quiet, but productive work he had done for the country. These are some long overdue, awkward first steps, and the people behind this alternative government are the old Ukraine politicians, who generally still have a decent reputation, such as Azarov, Vladimir Oleynik (MP from western Ukraine, presently in exile in Russia) and Igor Markov (MP from Odessa, now also in exile). Because of that, they may be capable of uniting various forces around them.
The country needs a completely new crop of politicians, who would be able to lead it into the future. The old crop may not be up to this task, but at least it is moving along. Except for Igor Markov, who is a younger and rather capable politician, these old political hands can be good instructors, taking the new politicians under their wing and allowing them to learn. There has been a talk about such development. The fact that it’s moving along indicates that the junta is feeling the pinch and its end is getting closer.
Recall my timeline for Ukraine’s complete turnaround: 2016-18.
Also recall what I said many times before: Ukraine can only be rebuilt and prosper in a union with Russia. Any attempts at dealings and mergers with the West on any level will bring Ukraine to destruction. However, after what happened, Russia won’t rush saving Ukraine this time.
Ukraine will have to provide some pretty good guarantees that it can be trusted, one of them being a complete weeding out of all malignant weeds. By weeding I mean getting rid of ukro-nazis, Western-ruled MSM, unfriendly oligarchs and US influence. This will be quite a feat and it will take some time. Another difficulty is that there really are no politicians in Ukraine who can accomplish it. Only DNR and LNR so far have people who can bring things to fruition.
Ukraine will have to produce the kind of people who are a match to the formidable task ahead.
The only thing… what is now called Ukraine will most likely bear a different name in several years time.
Russian defence contractor and BUK launch system manufacturer Almaz-Antey completed its own investigation into the MH17 downing in Ukraine in July, 2014. Ukraine denied the responsibility for the attack on the civilian plane en route from Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, blaming intermittently the Donbass self-defence and Russia. Nearly 300 people died as a result of the tragedy.
The BUK manufacturer has released the results of its independent investigation, which show that the 9M38-M1 surface-to-air missile from the M1 BUK system was used to shoot down the plane. The missile was produced until the 1990s and Almaz factories discontinued it in 1999. The Almaz-Antey CEO Yan Novikov confirmed that M1 BUK missiles were not delivered to anyone in the 21st century. Moreover, the Russian Army has long retired these older missiles, having been equipped with the new generation weapons. However, M1 is precisely the kind of BUK that is abundant in today’s Ukrainian armed forces.
The Almaz-Antey investigation also confirms that the trajectory of the missile is consistent with the location which at the time of the shoot-down was under Ukrainian (aka, Kiev junta) control. The missile was shot from the neighborhood of the Zaroshchenskoe village, controlled at the time by Kiev. This means that the Donbass self-defence was telling the truth that they had nothing to do with the tragedy.
Almaz-Antey has passed its findings to the MH17 international investigators. In response, Ukraine continues denying its involvement, putting all the blame on the Donbass self-defence and present leadership of the Donetsk and Lugansk Republics.
To prove its findings in action, Almaz-Antey proposes a real-life demo reconstruction of the event. The CEO of Almaz also notes that two US satellites were flying above the sector of E. Ukraine in question during MH17 shoot-down; however, to this day US refused to release the footage in its possession.
The Almaz investigation notes that MH17 could have been additionally damaged by the air-to-air missile from the flying nearby Ukrainian attack aircraft SU-25.
Western double standards: Almaz-Antey has been under EU and US sanctions since MH17 tragedy, based on Ukraine and USA’s accusation that Russia and Donbass self-defence shot down the Malaysian Airlines plane.

How did billionaire ‘chocolate king’ Petr Poroshenko manage to grow his fortune 7-fold in one year, while being Ukraine’s president? This is at the same time his country is in a state of civil war, unable to pay off its debt and about to declare default, poverty is overwhelming, pensions are cut, inflation reaches 270% and grivna is in free fall. Poroshenko is also the only Ukraine oligarch to increase his assets – all other oligarchs have lost during 2014-2015.

This article is part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON
(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)
Ukraine is very actively and aggressively re-writing history!
On April 9 the Kiev Rada equated communism with fascism. Ukraine president Poroshenko announced that Stalin started WWII together with Hitler. All communist and Soviet symbolism was banned. The leader of the practically illegal communist party of Ukraine, elderly, white-haired Petr Simonenko was arrested and had to endure an 11-hour interrogation at the SBU. Last year, communist faction (present Rada’s only legally elected) was banned and rudely thrown out of Rada. Simonenko and other communists’ homes were burned down.
Let me remind everyone that the very first thing Hitler did after coming to power was to boot out of Reichstag the very popular communists. Subsequently, German communists were killed or sent to concentration camps. Next, Hitler invaded the rest of Europe.
So, everything communist is bad, right?
Great! Then how about Ukraine also demolishes MOST apartment buildings on its territory, since they were built during Soviet times. Wouldn’t Ukrainians rather live in the street than in communist-built apartments?
Ukraine should also return DneproGes to Russia. DneproGes is Ukraine’s largest hydroelectric station build by those damn Russians and bad communists in the 1930s, which still provides 1/3 of Ukraine with unnecessary electricity. DneproGes was the first massive Soviet industrialization project, and it is widely considered the SYMBOL of the Soviet industrialization. I seriously think Ukraine should give it back, since they have no use for such communist symbol!
Also demolish all of your steel factories, tractor factories and defence factories, even the candy and cake-making factories, built by those damn communists.
Please go ahead and give back to Russia, who’s the legal heir of the USSR you hate so much, the Odessa ports, including Yuzhny and Ilyichevsk (named after Lenin, since Lenin’s patronymic was Ilyich). How ironic – the Ilyichevsk port has just been sold to AMERICANS by the cash-strapped Ukraine! Tush, tush, dear Americans. How could you buy such a testament and monument to Lenin? Not good, not good… It’s a communist symbol, after all!
Ilyichevsk port, Odessa oblast. Built in 1952 by the USSR and named after Lenin. See more on Wikipedia
And don’t forget to blow up all of Ukraine’s nuclear power stations providing the rest of Ukraine’s unnecessary electric power… Sorry, but they all were built by your worst enemies, Russians, during Soviet communist days!
You should also destroy the buildings presently occupied by your Central Rada and Ukraine government in Kiev. And the building of SBU, the secret services of Ukraine, where the upper floor has been occupied by Americans and NATO reps, on top of which American flag is placed next to the Ukrainian one. These are all Soviet-built structures, where the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and the Communist Party of Ukraine held meetings during Soviet times. How come you are still using those?
Please also don’t forget to give back to Russia all the gas and oil pipelines running through Ukraine’s territory, as well as all railroads, together with all the trains, locomotives, power lines and other infrastructure, built by those damn Soviet communists.
Actually, while we are at it, please remember to hand back to Russia the entire industrialized, export producing, developed and educated South and East of Ukraine, including: Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Zaporozhie, Krivoi Rog, Donetsk and Lugansk oblasts. All these oblasts were attached to then small Ukraine, usually called Malorossia, by communist Lenin. Please give Transcarpathia back to Hungary and Czechia, attached to Ukraine by communist Stalin. Please return to Poland Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk and a couple of other oblasts, attached to Ukraine by the same communist Stalin.
As to the Crimea once attached to Ukraine by communist Khrushchev, it has already returned itself to its rightful home.
And of course – my sincere congratulations – the cash-strapped Ukraine, with its dying economy, can forget about any investments or cash infusions from the richest creditor nation in the world, China, because a ban on communist ideology obviously includes China’s ruling communist party.
- Crazy Asylum Called Ukraine: “West Won’t Give Us Weapons If We Have Peace”
- Odessa Greets Poroshenko: “Fascist Won’t Pass.”
No comment. It is so much better to hear proof straight out of the horse’s mouth.
This is an excerpt of a Ukraine MSM TV debate, conducted in Ukrainian (provided by News-Front). Video link.
I’ve translated the whole thing verbatim, with no editing:
The blond says: “We finally managed to label Russia as aggressor (in Kiev Rada – LR) to prepare for the Hague Tribunal, to collect evidence for the tribunal, and to do all those things that are necessary in order to win.”
Brunette says: “We need to show Europeans how seriously we are motivated. Because they won’t give as weapons if we have peace. I remember, I was on air with pan (mr.) Chaliy after Minsk 2, when pan Chaliy 10 times repeated the word ‘peremoha’ = ‘victory’ in one TV show. He returned from Minsk and you can’t say ‘victory’ and at the same time ask for high-tech modern weapons. No one will give us weapons if we supposedly won.”
If you think this is chorus of the deranged blonds and brunettes, think again. Men constitute a worthy competition. Here is another snippet from the same debate – by a man (again, verbatim, no editing – he actually talks like that!):
“We could have saved a lot of money if we spent a little bit of money. No one who came to power wanted to see this conflict because it seemed to them it was expensive. And now we see that war is much more expensive. Very simple solution. If only at least one train was free for people to travel, I guarantee for 200% that we would have no war in Ukraine. In the past 15 years 85% of the Donbass population didn’t travel away from their territory. What did they see? They only saw ‘Russia news’ (he said it in English – LR) pictures. If only they came and saw for themselves western Ukraine and that there are no ‘banderivtsi’ (bandera-ukro-nazis – LR) there, but only people who are trying to do something in their garden, maybe not at a coal mine, but at a dacha (country retreat in Russian/Ukr – LR), then we would have no conflict. And it’s not too late now.” Link.
Translation: Sure, there are no banderivtsi in western Ukraine as they are all busy burning people alive in Odessa and killing children and women in Donbass (see: Konstantinovka Horror and Riots: Drunk Kiev Military Run Over Three People, Kill 8-Year-Old Girl. The latest: the woman, mother of the killed girl Polina, died in the hospital; we don’t know what happened to the baby).
On a different note, intel from the Kharkov partizans!
Philip Ekozyants, whom I mentioned previously, is reporting that Kiev has brought thousands of troops to surround Kharkov, and more are arriving – all exclusively from western Ukraine. Heavy artillery, including Western weapons, are being brought semi-disassembled. Some of the artillery is hidden underground (in order to avoid Russian satellite detection, no doubt – LR). Underground facilities built in the fields surrounding Kharkov house artillery, weapons stockpiles, and one half of soldiers. Another half lives in the above-ground barracks and nearby village. Villagers report that all these soldiers buy tons of ‘samogon’ from them (Russian/Ukr for illegal self-made vodka, or ‘moonshine’ – LR) – about 200 liters of samogon is sold to them daily. Intel says that Kiev troops have blocked the road leading from Kharkov to Kiev (apparently preparing for the uprising in Kharkov, following Donbass – LR). Part of the artillery has been positioned on the outskirts of Kharkov, aimed at the heavily populated living quarters of this 2+ mln city. Kharkov partisans are worried Kiev may start shelling peaceful citizens.
LR: Kharkov is the #2 city in Ukraine and a former capital, rivaling Kiev. It is very pro-Russian, but people are scared to protest. It is Ukraine’s intelligencia hub, but many have lost their jobs due to closures after Ukraine lost all Russian contracts and after the unprecedented contraction of the economy (25% is the official number – real number is much higher of course).
Recall that we had talked about a possible massive false flag in Ukraine.
