THREE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE AND TOUCHING RUSSIAN SONG FLASHMOBS!
A NEW SERIES OF POSTS! It’ll run between March and May 2019 on FuturisTrendcast, between the Crimea Re-unification anniversary and Victory Day. In this series I’ll post various remarkable and uplifting Russian photos, videos, clips, songs and flashmobs. Many may be surprising and truly remarkable. All – worthy of attention.
I want it to be uplifting, hopeful and positive. We already have several posts in this category:
REMEMBER THAT LEGENDARY RUSSIAN SONG FLASHMOB?..
Two years ago a giant flashmob spread like fire across borders. It started in Zaporozhie, Ukraine, where local students performed an old Soviet/Russian song ‘My Native Street’ from the legendary 1950s blockbuster film, Spring on Beyond-the-River Street (aka, Spring on River Street).
This was Zaporozhie flashmob that started it all:
Almost immediately, despite prosecution of the Kiev government and ukro-nazis, the flashmob spread to Odessa, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk and Kiev. The famous Russian/Soviet songs were performed in train stations and they began appearing on the Internet. Then Moscow decided to send a return hello to Ukraine by performing two Ukrainian songs at the Kiev Train Station.
It became known as the Train Station Flashmob, or the Russian Song Flashmob, or the Friendship Flashmob.
Then besieged by Kiev, Donbass joined in with some very powerful performances that spoke of courage, hope and memory no one can take away.
Very powerful: Donetsk flashmob – theme song from the legendary Soviet film ‘Officers’:
Wherever there were no train stations, people performed in bus terminals. In the small village of Snezhnoe, Donbass, people gathered at such small bus station to perform the legendary Soviet song, ‘On the Unnamed Altitude.’ The old Soviet song narrates the heroic act by a company of the Red Army soldiers during WWII. They defended the ‘unnamed altitude’ until only three of them were left.
Very touching! If you look carefully at the Snezhnoe flashmob video, you’ll see in the beginning that legendary ‘Unnamed Altitude’, a hill located in Donbass. It shows a huge memorial park with monuments and people laying flowers to commemorate the heroism of their ancestors. Then the scene changes to show how Kiev army destroys that hill, complete with monuments. It was during Kiev junta attacks between 2014 and 2016, and more heroes died defending that same altitude. The sight of the new destruction is striking, as if Nazis suddenly were back, and not as foreign invaders but as those the Donbass people once called their neighbors, brothers and sisters.
I think this was one of the most memorable and powerful performances of the entire flashmob. Note the guy and a woman in the video wiping tears as they listen! For these people the wounds are too fresh, too real, too close…
Flashmob spread all over the former USSR and throughout the world. Within less than one year there were thousands of Russian song flashmobs. No one had done the statistics, but this completely grassroots spontaneous phenomenon must have united tens or even hundreds of thousands in dozens of countries.
One such remarkable flashmob in Vienna – in my next post. And the cool, joyful Moscow flashmob – also to follow! Plus, we’ll have a wonderful Siberian flashmob – don’t miss that one! All coming in the next few weeks!
Meantime, those who had the gift of the gab began writing poetry about this unique global flashmob. This excellent poem was written as soon as the flashmob gained traction two years ago. It became viral in its own right. Here it is in Russian – read translation below:
Назло изолгавшейся прессе – протестный рождается шквал!!!
Запели «Смуглянку» в Одессе – её подхватил весь вокзал.
И в Харькове, и в Запорожье – то «Клён» запоют, то «Весну»…
Есть то, что всего нам дороже: мы помним большую страну!
Да! Ту дорогую, святую, что мир от фашизма спасла.
И пусть русофобы лютуют, а песня надежду зажгла! …
Давайте, родные, давайте!!! Споём на Днепре! На Неве!
И «хлопцi, коней розпрягайте!» – в ответ зазвенело в Москве!
На Киевском старом вокзале, под русский лихой перепляс –
в столице «Марусю» играли, души исполняя приказ. …
Как будто опять партизаны вдруг вышли из тёмных лесов…
Не верим мы в эти Майданы, а верим в добро и любовь!
Ну что, СБУ?!! Эту песню нельзя ни поймать, ни убить.
То вера святая воскресла! Маэстро сказал: «Будем жить!!!»
Ведь мы – от рожденья артисты, а песня – народный дебют:
славянские «сепаратисты», поют «колорады», поют!!!
Поют и поют, хоть ты тресни!.. А кто запретит? – да никто!
Тут всё – и прозрачно, и честно: вот – люди, вот – песня. И что?!
ВСЕМ слышно?!! Мы рядом. Мы вместе. МЫ – дети великих отцов.
И наша бессмертная песня – примета борцов и творцов!
AND A GREAT POETIC TRANSLATION OF THE ABOVE VERSE BY OUR NEMO:
Dear all! This is my modest attempt at a poetic translation of the poem that Lada posted in this article. The last verse is not quite to my liking in that I cannot quite rhyme it in English, thus losing some of the power that it had in Russian.
The lying media spiting, a wall of protest has sprung!!!
“Smugljanka” was heard in Odessa – the whole of the station it sung.
In Kharkov and Zaporozhje they’d sing of “Maple” and “Spring”.
What for all of us dear – rememb’ring great country we lived in.
Yes! The one and the holy that saved from the Fascism the World.
Let russophobes go a’brutal, the song has given us hope..!
Come, brothers, come sing on Dnieper and sing on the Neva bank!
While in Moscow “horses a’stradling” was heard in Ukrainian back!
At the old “Kiev” train station, a lively Rus dance was seen –
In capital they played “Marusja”, harkening to the soul’s scream.
As if partisans emerging, from the darkened woods of the war…
We don’t believe in Maidans, we are for goodness and love!
Now what, SBU!?? This song, can neither be caught nor killed.
The holy faith has returned! Maestro told us – “We’ll live!!!”
We all, from our births, are performers, and song is a people’s début:
The Slavic “separatists” are singing, “colorados” they calls for naught!!!
They sing and they sing, and what will you! Who can prohibit it? None!
All transparent here, and honest – the people, the song. It’s done.
D’you ALL hear, do you!? We are close. We are united. WE are children of great forefathers.
And our song immortal is the hallmark of creators and fighters!
STAY TUNED FOR MORE!
Проект моста через Дунай, который презентовали Порошенко и премьеру Болгарии Бойко Борисову во время их визита в Одесскую область, оказался банально срисован с фото моста через Амур в российском Хабаровске.
Fake Revealed! Ukraine simply copied a Russian Bridge across Amur in Khabarovsk, Siberia, presenting it as their own design of a bridge across Danube! The project of the new bridge across Danube, which was presented to Poroshenko and PM of Bulgaria Boyko Borisov during their visit to Odessa Oblast turned out to be simply copied from an Amur Bridge in Russian Khabarovsk.
Poroshenko being presented the fake ‘new’ bridge project across the river Danube, Odessa Oblast:
The photoshopped ‘international’ Ukrainian bridge, a direct copy of the REAL Russian bridge across Amur in Khabarovsk Krai, Siberia. This fake bridge is supposed to ‘easily’ connect Ukraine with Romania and multiple countries of the Balkans and E. Europe.
The REAL Russian bridge across Amur, Khabarovsk Krai, Siberia. Completely remodeled in 1999-2009.
No surprise. The major brain drain in
#Ukraine since late 1980s resulted in inability to create anything original. Hence resorting to extremism and Nazism, and the only commodity that sells well: #Russophobia
Do you know what the major problem here is: during the USSR days Ukraine was one of the most, if not the most developed of the Soviet republics! While both Russia and Ukraine went through the turbulent and wild ’90s, in Russia Putin and his team reversed the rampant wholesale lotting of the country by oligarchs and Western interests, while in Ukraine this process never stopped, and accelerated in the 2000s. The rich Soviet heritage carried Ukraine till now, along with subsidies by Russia. But not any more.
Along with Ukraine’s de-industrialization and de-humanization, most of the people with brains, talent, reason, know-how and zest for life, left. There is no one remaining in Ukraine to create anything original, unless and until RUSSIA infuses Ukraine again with the life force.
And seeing what’s happening in and around Ukraine, at this point Russians don’t feel like it.
Out of many pictures I could have picked to illustrate the true state of affairs in Ukraine between 2014 and 2018, I decided to select these.
This was the center of Kiev, the Independence Square, during 2013-14 ‘peaceful protests’
Ukraine Maidan: ‘let’s burn everything down, maybe our lives will improve’
Kiev Miadan: ‘peaceful’ ukro-nazi protesters get ready to crush with excavator the huddled together, unarmed police. The ‘peaceful pro-West protesters’ will also burn, beat, torture and shoot those policemen, who’ll happen to be unlucky enough to get in their way. The Ukraine police would become one of the first victims of the violent ukro-nazi Maidan.
Ukraine: ‘no life left’
Odessa May 2 massacre (over 48, by some accounts over 100, people burned alive)
Lisichansk: Donbass war destruction, peaceful homes bombed by Kiev
Lugansk humanitarian disaster: no gas, no light, no water — infrastructure destroyed by Kiev
Meantime, Poroshenko, Kiev junta and MSM continue trying to convince Ukraine’s population and the West that Russia attacked Ukraine and it’s all Putin’s fault.
Ukraine’s new JOKE:
They told us it will be a disaster if Putin comes. Disaster came, but where is Putin?
These graphs and pics show the truth:
Ukraine corruption index: corruption on the rise every year since Maidan
After 4+ years of the regime installed by Maidan, the minimum monthly wage in Ukraine in dollar terms is presently lower than in poorest African and Asian countries.
As the Bandera ukro-nazi greeting goes, now depicted all over Ukraine and repeated by Poroshenko and other officials: ‘Glory to Ukraine, glory to heroes!’
Corruption through the roof, currency collapse, no jobs, country on fire and torn apart by various forces, but if you join the ukro-nazi Svoboda, ‘right sector’ or similar organizations, you’ll be well taken care of.

Bridge collapses in the center of Kiev
Poverty & homelessness in Kiev, showcase city of Ukraine
‘Maidanutaya’, or a ‘pot-head’ – roughly translated as a ‘brainless Maidan supporter,’ with a typical Maidan kitchen pot on her head. It doesn’t matter if you are poor or homeless; in Ukraine all that matters is that you are a proud Ukrainian patriot brainwashed against Russia. If so, you’ve arrived! The only question is where?..
So, the disaster is upon Ukraine, yet Putin is nowhere in sight. But guess who is found all over Kiev and Ukraine…

I’ve told you about this phenomenon in my previous post on the Calibrations of Ukraine. And here’s a confirmation. People in Ukraine watching Russia2018 World Cup and cheering for Russia broke all records. It is especially striking since Kiev junta/Poroshenko announced the ‘boycott’ of the Russian World Cup. Pay attention to the cheering for the Russian team scene in Odessa at 3:20.
**Per Kiev’s intelligence (SBU), Odessa is next to secede. More here: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS: Ukraine, Poroshenko and Ukrainian Army (with many important updates & predictions)
We also have this advanced Multidimensional post regarding Poroshenko and Ukraine: Multidimensional Method of ‘Defeating’ the Energy Vampire And Another Timeline Correction
This has been in the works for months and DPR and LPR have been warning that Kiev is preparing an all-out attack against both Donetsk and Lugansk during World Cup 2018 in Russia. I warned about it since last year, too.
I’ll have several reports and updates on Novorossia/Donbass/Ukraine next week on Patreon.

HUGE CONTRAST WITH MOSCOW! UKRAINE May 9, 2018: Kiev & Odessa Immortal Regiment vs. Ukro-Nazi Right Sector! #IRemember #ДеньПобеды
Apr 26-May 9, 2018
VICTORY DAY & IMMORTAL REGIMENT MARCH!
Unlike in Moscow and all over the world where it is a genuine celebration, look at the difference in the mood in Ukraine. People are forbidden from carrying any symbols associated with the Great Victory and there is no uplifting music. ALL famous Russian songs of Victory are BANNED by Kiev junta, while Ukraine never managed to produce any of its own! The mood is somber and gloomy.
And on top of that, those who came to lay flowers and remember the fallen ancestors get verbally abused by the Right Sector and other ukro-nazis. I haven’t seen the rest of Ukraine yet, but I hope that there were no physical fights, as in previous years. All in all, what is happening is a disaster.
It’s good at least that some people still remember, as you’ll see in both Kiev and Odessa crowds, where they have the courage to respond to provocations that they live not in ‘Ukraine’, but Malorossia or Novorossia, and that they are Russians.
But some already don’t, such as one woman interviewed in the Kiev march below, who said that her son was in ATO in Donbass and she doesn’t know how to make peace now with Russia(!) because Russia keeps attacking Ukraine(!) – and she says all that in a non-accented Russian. It is worrying how many have been thoroughly brainwashed and how many believe the Kiev junta propaganda.
KIEV May 9 2018 Immortal Regiment – notice, no traditional symbols of Victory, people are only allowed to carry their people’s portraits, Ukrainian flags and flowers:
NOTE THE CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KIEV AND ODESSA!!! In Odessa people are much more defiant, NOT brainwashed at all, and no true Odessan in their right mind would say that ‘Russia is attacking Ukraine.’ The Right Sector and various ukro-nazis from western and central Ukraine (notably from Vinnitsa, where Poroshenko’s family lived for years before he became an oligarch) are especially vicious in Odessa, partly because they know they can’t subdue Odessa. Viciousness like this is a typical fascist / Nazi attitude in response to people’s defiance.
I just feel terrible for the people and the place I used to know years ago as beautiful, peaceful, inclusive and amicable. I can only imagine what those poor people are going through.
However, they don’t give up. In the video below, unlike in Kiev, you’ll see that people are singing BANNED BY JUNTA Russian/Soviet songs of Victory and they secretly carry into the venue some Victory symbols! Also notice how many people came to the Odessa Alley of the Glory (Alleya Slavi).
ODESSA May 9 2018 — Immortal Regiment vs. Right Sector! Unlike in Kiev people dare to sing Katyusha and Den Pobedy, and chant: ‘Fascism won’t pass’, ‘Zhukov is our hero’ (banned in Nazi Ukraine Marshall Zhukov, who is credited largely with WWII Victory, and who at one time was the governor of Odessa) and ‘Out of Odessa, Bandera devils’ (aka, ukro-nazis). Look how many Right Sector provocateurs are trying to disrupt the march (young men and women who walk backwards in front of the march, trying to impede its movement, laugh and stick their cameras in people’s faces. Also notice that these are all YOUNG and VERY ATHLETIC PEOPLE!! )!
Note that in Odessa people dare to chant things like: ‘Donbass, we are with you’, ‘Odessa is Russian city’, and even ‘PUTIN OUR PRESIDENT’! Odessa Immortal Regiment March was the largest in Ukraine!

Some of you loved this song! Listen to Joe Dassin’s Et si tu n’existais pas – and some weekend thoughts…
Dear friends, this post was written by me and scheduled to be posted before the breaking developments in Syria on the night of Apr 14, 2018, as a nice and easy weekend post. I am still going ahead an pubbing it. Unfortunately, the Dark State and morons in charge in the US, UK and France won’t let us enjoy it, but I still want to wish you a nice and peaceful weekend, wherever you may be on the planet.
I still sometimes listen to this and other of Joe Dassin’s songs. They have a very calming effect, and a sort of eternal philosophical quality. In Russia they’ve been perennial favorites, and to this day everyone knows them.
Et si tu n’existais pas (If you did not exist) – with ENG subs
And another one of Joe Dassin classics L’ETE INDIEN (Indian Summer)
Joe Dassin and other romantic French and Italian singers were very popular when I lived in the USSR. Wikipedia says Dassin was born in the US. Yet, as we know, this very talented man managed to become one of the classics of the French chanson. I distinctly recall that Dassin’s family was originally from Odessa (and I mean the REAL Odessa – my native Odessa, Russia, of course). His original family name appears to have been modified when his ancestors moved to the US, and then again modified when he moved to France. Very unusual and eventful family history, I’d say, but then why should I be surprised — just look at my own history.
I am in good company. Generally, the super-generous Odessa-mama gave birth or was an early home to many, many very talented people, but few, if any, ever stayed put. Just some you’d know right away: Leonardo di Caprio’s grandmother was from Odessa; world-famous pianist Valentina Lisitsa grew up in Odessa around the same time I did; also from Odessa is an amazing Russian singer Vitas; Some of the figure skating greats, such as Oxana Bayul, are from Odessa; classic Golden Age Russian/Soviet authors Valentin Kataev, Ilf and Petrov, Yury Olesha and many more grew up and wrote in Odessa; one of the most famous Russian/Soviet movie stars Oleg Tabakov’s family was from Odessa; 1950s film star and singer Leonid Utesov was from Odessa. Russian cinematography basically began in Odessa, with Sergey Eisenstein’s classic silent film Battleship Potemkin, and Alexandr Dovzhenko’s films. The visionary founder of the Russian/Soviet Space program Sergey Korolev, who was behind the first Sputnik, First Man and First Woman is Space went to Odessa Politechnic University – just a couple of blocks from where I lived, but before my time.
You can read more in my classic articles from 2013. They were written pre-Kiev-junta disaster, when Odessa was still Odessa.
Enjoy and have a nice weekend!
Major Russian Bank CEO Dire Warning: Anti-Russian Sanctions Mean War, US Should Remove Ambassador from Moscow
The US has threatened a new round of anti-Russian sanctions, scheduled to be announced today, Jan. 29. This new round is directed against Russian big business, banks, the rich and ex-oligarchs. Some of these reside in Russia and others in London, EU and US.
Russians at large don’t trust the class of the rich and oligarchs, believing their loyalties lie with the West, where their money is stashed away. To a degree this is correct. However, more and more proof is arriving daily that the opposite may be true in many cases. Some examples are striking and jaw-dropping.
For example, the CEO of Russia’s major bank VTB, Andrei Kostin, shocked Russians yesterday by his completely out-of-character dire warnings to the US and EU not to play with fire. Kostin warned during the Davos Economic Forum that a new round of sanctions and continuing economic/ political pressure against Russia would equal a declaration of war. In that case, he said, Russia should remove her ambassador from Washington, and US ambassador has no business ‘bathing in cold water in Moscow’ — a reference to US ambassador’s Epiphany ice dip: Learn Russian! Not for the faint of heart: Russian Miracle Epiphany Ice Dip (#Putin, US Ambassador). Instead, he should go home.
In fact, the new round of economic sanctions angered many of Russia’s rich, especially those living abroad. A mass movement has begun to repatriate capital from London and other offshores. I’ll talk about this remarkable development in a separate post on Patreon.
In the video below, with ENG subs, you’ll see a sample of how Russian talk show debates are conducted.
After the first part, discussing the surprisingly sharp comment by VTB chief, the discussion switches to the new naval base in Ochakov, Ukraine. Ochakov is a Black Sea port, near Nikolaev and several hundred kilometers from Odessa. The base in Ochakov, an old and highly historic Russian city (unfortunately stuck in today’s ukro-nazi Ukraine), is being built by Americans. It is well-known that it is designated as a future American military-naval base.
You’ll remember me telling you in 2014 that the US had big designs on turning Crimea into its mega-base, but Russians made sure that didn’t happen. Barring that, the US still pursues its plans to build a naval base on the Black Sea’s Ukrainian territory.
Remember that I predicted in Jan-Feb 2014 that Russia would never allow Crimea to fall into the US hands — and that’s exactly what happened.
I am predicting — again — that Russia will never allow a US base to be built this close to the Crimean base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. This simply won’t happen. The base will never be completed, or alternatively, when it is completed US will not be able to use it. How this will be done — we’ll leave some things unsaid…
You’ll see in the video how a representative of Ukraine (a younger man in the debate circle) says that American ‘construction guest workers’ are there just to build the base and leave, ‘much like Central Asian migrants building new high-rises in Moscow.’ The base, he says, will be Ukrainian, not American.
A rebuttal follows: ‘Sure, they are American construction guest workers from Pentagon,’ and another one: ‘US never leaves.’
Check out this very interesting video, with ENG subs. Posting it as an example of the Russian TRUE freedom of speech: pro-Kiev junta Ukrainian is freely participating in it, expressing his point of view. Can you imagine a Russian doing the same on national TV in Kiev or US? I can’t.
**Also note in the end a mention of Biden, who said that USA’s goal is to ‘pit Russians against each other.’

The last act of THE IDIOCRACY+ tragic comedy is unfolding in front of our very eyes. Poroshenko’s junta ruled by the US, and the ukro-nazis continue plunging the poor Ukraine into abyss. What is happening in Kiev today would be a hilarious farce, if not for tens of thousands this ugly regime has killed, and if not for millions whose lives they destroyed.
I dubbed it THE IDIOCRACY+ a couple of years ago. For instance, see this post from Dec. 2015: Spiders in a Jar: Saakashvili, Avakov, Poroshenko and Ukraine’s Idiocracy+
Ever since, the THE IDIOCRACY+ continues spreading like cancer, and it gets worse by the day. This is my recent article, among other things describing the new conundrums facing the junta and Poroshenko, and the new adventures of ex-Georgia-president, ex-Odessa-governor and international criminal Saakashvili: EU Trouble: Why Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Romania Support Separatism in Ukraine (10/19/17)
BREAKING NEWS & LATEST SUMMARY FROM UKRAINE:
I am sure you have not seen any of this in any Western press or TV. Perhaps some bits and pieces in various alternative info sources…
As usual, here on FuturisTrendcast, I give you the FULL picture. Sometimes it means I forego the immediate sensationalism and continue watching the events unfold until I discern the pattern and a full picture, so I can pass it on to you.
The summary of the latest events in a nutshell:
As I wrote previously, Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukraine citizenship given to him personally by Poroshenko so he could illegally become the governor of Odessa. After that, he was booted out of Ukraine. In October 2017 Saakashvili re-entered western Ukraine through Poland. On the Polish side he was helped to infiltrate Ukraine by Poland, while on Ukraine side he was cheered and supported by western Ukraine/Lvov ukro-nazis, who treated him as their unelected chieftain.
The combined forces of Ukraine police and special military units, complete with tanks and armed vehicles, half-heartedly ‘resisted’ that re-entry, but it really resembled a farce. That’s not how any state acts if they are determined not to let anyone into the country. See more info and watch what went on in above-linked article!
Saakashvili since has roamed Ukraine free, despite the fact that he has no Ukraine or any other country’s citizenship. Ukraine authorities have been afraid to touch him. The rumor has it that US, Poland and Germany have basically told Poroshenko to lay off. (Does that remind anyone of 2013-14 Kiev Maidan and how Yanukovich was threatened not to do anything about it by US and EU?).
Saakashvili settled in his apartment in central Kiev together with his wife and son, under the very nose of Poroshenko and his archenemy Avakov, the internal minister of Ukraine — see their fight in Spiders in a Jar.
Next, Saakashvili and his loyal ukro-nazis (The right sector, Svoboda, the works) organized Maidan-3 in Kiev. The stated purpose: to abolish Poroshenko and the government in power. And still, no one arrested or deported Saakashvili! Let’s also remember that he is NOT a Ukraine citizen, but a person without a country, who is in Ukraine illegally. Let’s also recall that Kiev on many occasions arrested and deported the accredited Russian journalists for simply reporting the truth, and banned from entry into Ukraine Russian artists for speaking Russian.
The Maidan-3 tent city grew in Kiev’s central square, just like in 2013-14. Except there was a crucial element missing, of which I wrote in October: the support from their usual sponsors in the West. Western MSM is silent on Maidan-3, none of the foreign ministers, politicians, diplomats or ex-presidents from US/Canada/EU showed up to prod and escalate Maidan-3. Plus, what misfortune! There is really no financing to speak of. Ok, maybe some little pittance from CIA slush funds.
A I wrote in EU Trouble back in October, there is NO support for Mishiko-Maidan (named after Saak) in the West. Saakashvili is clearly attempting to sell himself by proving his usefulness to the new boss, Trump. He has calculated that Trump hates Poroshenko and the present junta for supporting Hillary, as well as for starting the Paul Manafort scandal in 2016; scandal, which jeopardized Trump’s election campaign and which remains a big thorn in Trump’s side. And that’s true, Trump does hate Kiev and Poroshenko.
Another reason for that hate is the alleged participation of Kiev in the new N. Korea nuclear program.
But what Saakashvili doesn’t get (or he is just desperate) is that Trump doesn’t decide much. Trump or not, US remains committed to the hybrid 4D war against Russia. Ukraine, perhaps poorly, does perform the necessary function of a thorn and cannon fodder in this war (read more in EU Trouble).
For more important intel read Secret Order to Destroy Slavs and Re-Write their Genetic Code! 3 Ingredients of Color Revolution (New Theory)!
Therefore, seeing that Maidan-3 is no go, Saakashvili and his ukro-nazi cronies switched tactics. They began to ‘peacefully protest,’ demanding the impeachment of Poroshenko. They go around carrying banners ‘Impeach Poroshenko’ and yelling their usual ukro-nazi slogans, ‘Glory to Ukraine, glory to heroes.’
Ukraine is supposed to have presidential elections soon, although the date continues being postponed and is still shrouded in mystery. It appears Poroshenko is dreading elections so much that he is unable to commit and hopes that if he announces the polling date as late as possible his opponents won’t have time to consolidate. Poroshenko’s approval rating is in the teens, and with that kind of rating he is considered the most popular politician in Ukraine. This gives you an idea how distrusted and hated any politician in Ukraine is!
Saakashvili is making it very difficult for Poroshenko to maintain even this dismal rating. As you recall, in October I explained that the only way for Poroshenko to stay alive is to continue being elected. Once he is out of office, his life isn’t worth a dime. Russians joke that he would eventually have to escape Ukraine to join another ex, Yanukovich, in exile in Russian Rostov.
This was the situation till 2 days ago.
There have been credible rumors that SBU is secretly working on a plan to evict Saakashvili out of Ukraine. They were afraid to do what any normal country would do — just deport him. Let’s again recall that they weren’t afraid to burn people alive in Odessa, arrest the truth-tellers or bomb the people of Donbass. But they are mortally afraid of ukro-nazis and Saakashvili.
Kiev junta also couldn’t make up their minds where to deport Saakashvili: to the US patsy Georgia, which threatens to put him in jail, but will always do only what US says, or to US vassal Poland, which will do anything to spite Russia, and of course to please US.
My intel has been telling me since October that special SBU units were formed and trained for a secret operation ‘Saakashvili out.’ And yesterday, they finally decided to execute their plan.
But they didn’t know who they were dealing with! Saakashvili ran to the rooftop of his apartment building, where he threatened to jump. Meanwhile, a huge, and as usual with ukro-nazis, violent crowd of his supporters gathered below. They were screaming ‘shame’ and their ukro-nazi slogans. Since most Saakashvili supporters are from Ukrainian-speaking central and western Ukraine villages, they were yelling all this in Ukrainian.
While on the roof, Saakashvili began giving a speech to his supporters. Saakashvili, so to be accepted as one of them, actually made an effort to learn Ukrainian, and could speak it passably. On several occasions I saw him pointedly addressing the crowd in Ukrainian only.
The only problem, when one is nervous or agitated, he reverts to the language one is most comfortable with. So, Saakashvili, about to be arrested, stood on the roof, addressing the crowd in… Russian. That same hated Russian, the language of the arch-enemy.
Meanwhile, SBU operatives reached Saakashvili on the roof and carefully began bringing him down. With much difficulty they finally loaded him into a van, which was attacked by ukro–nazis, who liberated Saakashvili out of the van and victoriously almost carried him away! You can see all that on videos below.
So, Saak is back at large. Get your semechki and popcorn! Let’s see where the next act of this tragic farce will lead.
Recall my early 2014 prediction: Ukraine will turn back to Russia and away from the West in 2018. So far, we are seemingly seeing the opposite. Yes, the timeline has been altered dramatically by the dark forces since I made that prediction — I did talk about that previously. I will eventually have a full update — most likely in the new year.
However, there are interesting signs that signal a subtle turnaround. I hear persistent intel from Ukraine that many of those who in 2014 supported Maidan, don’t any more.
Another thing that will happen is that Ukraine will cease being an important gas transiter to EU as of 2019, once Nord Stream-2 and Turkish Stream are built. This will alter the situation in Ukraine dramatically.
Secession of parts of Ukraine is also on the menu and only the fact that US/EU continue propping up the Kiev regime is what’s holding it up for the time being.
AND HERE’S THE CLINCHER TO THE WHOLE STORY!
Kiev announced that Saakashvili in fact is… the Kremlin spy! According to Kiev, Saakashvili and his ukro-nazis are financed by Putin to destabilize Ukraine and to unseat Poroshenko.

1 Whose agent is Saakashvili: Kremlin’s, CIA’s, Poland’s, EU’s, or is he simply a desperate freelancer, trying to survive? Perhaps he is an ardent warrior for justice, out to fix Ukraine after he successfully ruined his own country, Georgia?
2 Should Poroshenko be impeached? Should he go to jail for all his crimes?
3 If Poroshenko is impeached, who will be next president of Ukraine: Yulia Timoshenko? Saakashvili? Some ukro-nazi? Putin? Right-wing Russian politician Zhirinovsky? Head of DPR Zakharchenko? Will it get better or worse?
4 Can Maidan-3 succeed without a huge and unwavering US/EU support and will this support come?

EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6
This powerful webinar is the culmination of Lada Ray’s Multidimensional Geopolitics Series.
RELEASE: NOVEMBER 6, 2017!
THE PUTIN ENIGMA goes on sale on November 6 (no pre-orders)
According to some, this is what Ukraine’s map will look like in a few years. This is one idea… I personally think the map will look a bit different, but it certainly won’t be anything like it is today. Just give it time, and it may be a bit longer than a few years due to the fast-changing timelines, as a consequence of the Earth Shift. Will even the country’s name and the infamous ‘zhovto-blakitniy’ (yellow and blue) flag survive this ukro-nazi Kiev regime? To me, that is a BIG question!
LADA RAY PREDICTION:
Ukraine will continue rocking and burning up in fever, until the many injustices, clashes of inner economic and outer geopolitical interests, layers of lies and mismatches with reality are resolved.
I always said, and will continue saying, that Ukraine in its today’s form and substance, including its very name, is an artificial still-born creation, which could only survive and prosper under the tutelage and protection of Russia. Once it became separate, making it a juicy prey of the greedy local and international oligarchy; once alien ideology has been introduced, the whole thing began disintegrating.
It will continue on its road to self-destruction until, one way or another, all or most tensions and problems are resolved. Only this kind of solution will clear up the road to renewal and progress for Malorossia and Novorossia.
Today we are talking about one long-brewing issue, which was left dormant on the back burner for as long as Kiev and ukro-nazis didn’t touch it. As soon as this issue is disturbed, the overboiling of the old problems is bound to occur. The overboiling would be better for Ukraine’s many people, who are sick of this regime. However, it is very bad for Kiev, Poroshenko and ukro-nazis, who call themselves ‘Ukraine patriots’.
These self-styled ‘Ukraine patriots’ aren’t very bright, and through their actions, such as the one described below, they will continue pushing Ukraine into abyss, until complete disintegration, or until Russia is ready to pick up the pieces.
Hungary, Slovakia and Romania support separatism in Ukraine and demand self-determination for ethnic minorities
I had previously written about Poland, Hungary and Romania licking their lips and trying to quietly bite off pieces of Ukraine, hiding behind the Western and Ukrainian hysteria targeting Russia. This time Kiev, by accusing Russia of supposed ‘aggression’ and trying to pass more and more anti-Russian laws has stepped on the new rake and gotten itself into a very tight spot. The EU, as well as Germany/Merkel are equally in a tight spot, as lead defenders of Poroshenko and the Kiev junta.
Ukraine Rada recently passed a new ‘education law,’ according to which school education in the languages of minorities — and those are many in Ukraine — is banned, and education only in Ukrainian is permitted. As of 2017, education in minorities’ native languages is still permitted in primary school, however, all students past grade 5 are mandated to study only in Ukrainian. As of 2020 100% of pupils from first to last grade must study only in Ukrainian.
This news immediately caused an uproar in western Ukraine, where the following large minorities, numbering in hundreds of thousands reside: Hungarians, Romanians and Slovaks. In Odessa Oblast there also are numerous Bulgarian villages. Till now, they all had a choice of sending their kids to ethnic schools, however, gradually the number of subjects taught in minority languages has been declining over the years. There are also fewer and fewer such schools available.
Hungary PM Viktor Orban, a well-known nationalist, immediately reacted to the ukro-fascist ‘education law’ by denouncing it and demanding that EU demand that Ukraine rescind this new law as a condition to keep its ‘EU association agreement.’
To remind everyone, the infamous Ukraine’s EU association agreement was the pretext for the Kiev Maidan and coup 2014, leading to the ousting of president Yanukovich, war in Donbass and the loss of Crimea by Ukraine. Poroshenko proclaimed the signing of the EU association agreement and the accompanying 90-day visa free travel to the EU for Ukraine citizens as the crowning achievement of the Maidan and his administration.
Viktor Orban, who never minces words, announced that if EU fails to react to Hungary’s demands to protect the Hungarian population of western Ukraine, Hungary will block all EU’s initiatives in support of Kiev, such as Euro loans, further liberalization of trade quotas and any political or economic support of Poroshenko and Kiev regime.
Slovakia and Romania joined in the chorus of Kiev condemnation and demanded the same. These countries pledged to vote down any EU initiatives that would give breaks or afford loans to Kiev.
Furthermore, Hungary, supported by Slovakia and Romania, demands broad autonomy for the Hungarian and Rusyn populated Zakarpatska Rus, also called Podkarpatskaya Rus. (NOTE that ‘s’ in Rus and Rusyn is pronounced as ‘s’ in the word state, not as ‘z’) As seen on the map on top of this post, it is the western-most tip of today’s Ukraine, also known in the West as Transcarpathia.
There are about 200,000 Hungarians residing there, most of whom also posses Hungarian passports. This is because this area was a part of Austria-Hungary for centuries prior. However the core majority of the population in Podkarpatskaya Rus are Rusyns (aka, Rusins, Ruthenians). As you see by the name, it’s another way to say ‘Russians.’ I’ll tell you more: in 19th — beginning of 20th centuries the population of most of today’s Ukraine called themselves ‘Rusyns.’ The word ‘Ukrainian’ in the 19th century signified basically traitors to the Rusins, their language (an older version of western Russian) and Russian Orthodox faith. Later, the true history was successfully forgotten, aided and abetted by propaganda from Poland and Austria-Hungary. I explained in detail how it all happened in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE.
Rusyns have been very vocal about the fact that they wanted autonomy and recognition as a separate ethnicity, with their own language. They are recognized as a separate from ‘Ukrainians’ ethnicity by the neighboring countries, such as Slovakia and Hungary, as well as Russia and the UN. But Kiev refuses to recognize them as a separate minority, with their own rights, and insists they all are ‘Ukrainians.’ The leaders of the Rusyn movement have been either threatened or driven out of Ukraine altogether. As we see, Rusyns, as the core population of Transcarpathia, are ripe and ready for secession — they only need a push — and a support from abroad. In this case, the necessary support may come from Hungary and Slovakia.
This map allows you to see approximately where Zakarpatska Rus (Podkarpatskaya Rus) is located — marked in bright aquamarine color. I say approximately because it does have some discrepancies. It’s surrounded by Hungary in red (Wegry), Romania, Slovakia (light blue) and Poland. The rest of Ukraine is not marked here, but it is to the east in gray.
However, Germany and EU are vehemently opposing the autonomy and self-determination of these regions. Ukraine has to be kept intact despite the unwillingness and inability of different parts to stay together. Ukraine has to be as big and strong as possible, according to EU, Merkel and US. Why? Because as big and as menacing as possible a thorn is needed against Russia. But it is simultaneously a thorn against Eastern/Central European countries, such as Hungary, Austria, Czechia and Slovakia, some of which are starting to see the light and want better relations with Russia. Maintaining a permanent Iron Curtain between Russia and these countries, as well as entire Europe, is the No.1 goal of the neo-liberal globalist and West-centric elites.
Conclusion: there will be lots of fights and arms twisting in the EU in the next couple of years. Get your semechki and popcorn ready.
Many Rusyns have relatives on the other side of the border and many own Hungarian passports, in addition to Ukrainian passports. However, at large they prefer to be a part of Russia. The problem is that they are surrounded by the rest of western Ukraine, which tends to be ukro-nazi inclined and there is no direct border with Russia. In such situation, they hope to escape the clutches of Kiev with Hungary’s help.
Slovakian population has also resided in those parts since it was a part of the Austria-Hungary. On the top map, you will also find small pieces of south-western Ukraine marked as populated by Romanians.
But the biggest chunk of today’s Ukrainian territory coveted by Romania is the southern part of the prized Odessa Oblast, aka, Bessarabia (on the top map it is marked under the Russian flag). Romania also claims that all of Moldavia (presently separate from Russia Republic of Moldova) and the breakaway Pridnestrovie should both be a part of the ‘Great Romania.’ All that can happen in their wet dreams only, of course. I can tell you with absolute confidence that Romania will never get its hands on either Odessa Oblast, Moldavia or Pridnestrovie. Much more on these volatile issues and region’s fascinating history is discussed in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit.
What is marked on the top map as the territory claimed by Poland is the largest part of Western Ukraine. Poland has been for years publicly supporting Russophobia and discrimination of Russian language and culture in Ukraine, while at the same time secretly plotting to tear Western Ukraine with center in Lvov from Ukraine.
Overall, either quietly or loudly, Poland, Hungary, and Romania have been encouraging and supporting separatism in Western Ukraine, while voting for sanctions against Russia, for supposedly supporting ‘separatism’ in south-eastern Ukraine and Donbass. The double-faced hubris of this position is obvious: in reality they are licking their lips and waiting for the right moment when Kiev weakens enough, secretly hoping to chop off the pieces of Ukraine they can get their hands on.
It has to be mentioned that Hungary, along with Austria, Slovenia, Greece and Finland, has been one of the most vocal opponents of the anti-Russian sanctions, repeatedly demanding their repeal. Hungary also made a serious effort to keep its good relationship with Russia going, despite sanctions and EU threats. Same goes for the the other countries mentioned in this regard.
Poland, on the other hand, has been the biggest proponent and initiator of the existing and new anti-Russian sanctions. Many anti-Russian moves in the EU have been pushed through based on the insistence of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Romania hasn’t been that far behind.
Hungary and others demand broad autonomy and self-determination for their respective minorities in order to preserve the culture and the right of people to speak their native language. Hungary’s Orban even uttered something that till now was considered blasphemy and a taboo in Hungary and the rest of Eastern Europe. Ready for this?.. He said that Hungarian minority was batter off in the USSR than in today’s Ukraine!! Can you imagine this coming out of the mouth of an EU head of state?!
What Orban said is the real, honest to goodness truth of course, as I can personally confirm. But it is something no EU politician could admit to himself — forget admitting it publicly!
The demands of autonomy and self-determination for Hungarians in Ukraine caused a major uproar in Kiev. Foreign minister Klimkin lashed out by accusing Hungary of supporting separatism in Ukraine. Ukraine in general is in shock from the EU/Hungary/Romania/Slovakia’s reaction to the new law. They have thought that because Kiev serves as a major thorn in Russia’s back, EU will always look the other way, no matter what Kiev junta does. After all, EU conveniently didn’t notice any of the atrocities by Kiev and ukro-nazis against the peaceful population of Donetsk and Lugansk. That’s because Donbass is populated by Russians and Ukrainians. But an encroachment on the rights of those ethnicities they consider their own is a different story altogether.
In their twisted and dim minds the Kiev Rada honestly thought the EU would say ‘Thank You’ and reward them for the new anti-Russian move — because make no mistake, this new ‘education law’ is aimed against Russia.
And now we need to say a few words about the elephant in the room, aka, RUSSIAN LANGUAGE. The thing is, when the Rada was passing this already infamous ‘education law,’ what they were really targeting was Russian language and culture. It is the highly preferred culture and language for the majority of Ukraine’s population, despite major persecution. Therefore, its complete eradication from people’s genetic and ancestral memory is the ultimate goal.
It once happened the same way to Poland and to Germany (Prussia and beyond). But that was centuries ago, and this is happening in front of our very eyes. Problem is, no matter how hard they tried, they were largely unsuccessful with adults, who refused to stop speaking Russian. It is helpful that we live in the TV and Internet age, where much info can be found bypassing official channels.
I described in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 UKRAINE: TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE how in 2007 the Gallup poll inadvertently confirmed that 70%+ of Ukrainians preferred to read and write in Russian. This is when it was decided that slow and insidious means of color revolutions and election fraud, employed to elect the US agent Yushchenko in 2004, didn’t produce the desired result. It was judged that instead a violent coup d’etat was needed, using sold-out elites, criminal element, the jobless, angry and disgruntled youths, silly students and impoverished villagers. The preparation for the 2014 Maidan began.
We can easily point fingers here. Recall US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland bragging during Washington Press Club meeting in the end of 2013 how US spent $5 billion to subvert Ukraine. Top EU and US politicians were on Kiev Maidan every day, calling to overthrow Yanukovich. The names that come to mind first are Nuland, US ambassador to Kiev Pyatt, US senator McCain and Poland’s top politician Kachinski, twin brother of ex-president Kachinski who died along with 96 Poland’s top brass in self-inflicted plane crash near Smolensk, Russia, several years prior. This surviving Kachinski twin is presently called the ‘shadow ruler of Poland.’
Both then Ukraine PM Azarov and president Yanukovich were threatened daily with a coup and bodily harm if they resisted the Maidan and tried to make up with Russia. PM Azarov writes extensively in his recently published memoirs how he was personally threatened more than once by Nuland and US ambassador Pyatt, as well as EU’s then foreign minister Catherine Ashton (a UK native). All top Ukraine politicians, ministers, security services personnel, police and military commanders, bureaucrats and oligarchs were either bought or threatened, if they refused to succumb to pressure. The most ‘disagreeable’ to the West’s agenda for Ukraine were killed or driven out of the country. Ex-PM Azarov was one of them.
At the same time, since late 1980s-early 1990s, the children were targeted through a wholesale assault and mutilation of the educational system of Ukraine. If it didn’t work with adults, they needed to switch target to the next generation and watch how they grow up hating their own heritage. And that, unfortunately, did produce the result they were after. It is a well-known fact that Ukraine school books were created using free Soros grants, by western Ukrainians from Poland, Canada and US. This was done simultaneously with the re-writing of history and re-inventing Ukrainian language to make it seem as non-Russian as possible. Again, all that was done using fat grants provided by Soros, USAID, Endowment for Democracy and other Western NGOs. But the result was still relatively meager and localized.
As of 2017, despite urko-nazi threats, parents still continue to go out of their way to find a Russian school for their kids. I just heard from those who live in Ukraine and they complain that it’s harder and harder to find a Russian school in most areas, even where Russian is traditionally the ONLY language spoken, such as Odessa. In Kiev it’s nearly impossible to find a Russian school. But people still try.
There are bizarre incidents being reported. A Russian-speaking teacher would ask a question in Russian, but the pupil is required to answer in Ukrainian, even though the pupil’s language is also Russian. In some schools teachers and parents secretly agree on a work-around, such as the class is advertised as Ukrainian-language, but all lessons are conducted in Russian, for as long as no outsiders are present. In other cases, when teachers in class teach falsified history, parents at home are forced to re-educate their children by telling them not to believe what is said in school. Can you imagine the trauma and confusion all this causes to a fragile child’s psyche?
I recently read this story by a very popular in Ukraine blogger, who writes under the name Yura Sumi. He was forced out of the country after telling the truth about Donbass and Kiev regime. While he was trying to get naturalized in Russia, his family remained in Ukraine. They came to visit him in a small town near Moscow, where he resided. His teenage daughter didn’t want to go back to Ukraine. Parting, she uttered longingly, ‘Papa, why wasn’t I born here?’
Oftentimes Russian is marked in school curriculum as a ‘foreign’ language, and in many schools it is pushed out altogether, being overtaken by other FOREIGN languages: English and German.
But the resistance to forced ukrainization is huge. In the absence of good Russian language education, parents often take it upon themselves to teach kids Russian through the love of the Russian literature and through watching Russian films and cartoons.
This is why the real assault against Russian language was needed. The new ‘education law’ was aimed to target specifically Russian language and culture. But Hungarian, Slovakian and Romanian were caught in the crossfire. The Kiev junta hasn’t counted on backlash from Hungary and other EU countries. Kiev is afraid to spoil relations with EU, its biggest backer apart from the US. Poroshenko and Rada made an attempt to get around this by calling only on Russian language to be banned from schools, while giving exception to Hungarian, Slovak and Romanian. But that created additional backlash from western Ukraine ultra-nationalists, who want ONLY Ukrainian in every school. At the same time it caused a protest storm from Russia, and even more international accusations of blatant discrimination of the minorities’ rights. The UN was forced to get involved.
The pressure on Poroshenko to rescind this discriminatory law will continue from the EU and UN. Meanwhile Ukrainian ultra-nationalists and ukro-nazis continue pressing Poroshenko to uphold it. So far, Poroshenko, this unusually large, yet slippery snake, has been able to squirm his way out of tight spots, hanging on by his teeth to power. But the spot he is in is getting progressively tighter. He knows he must get re-elected as president just to stay alive. The moment he’s out of office and loses his immunity, he will be hunted for the rest of his life.
The example of ex-Georgian president Saakashvili, a man without citizenship, is right in front of his eyes. Saakashvili was stripped of Georgian citizenship, but he quickly and illegally received Ukraine citizenship. At the same time he was made by Poroshenko the governor of Odessa Oblast, also quite illegally. Late last year (right on time, based on my prediction made in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit), he lost his lucrative Odessa post and was stripped of Ukraine citizenship by Poroshenko, following a public row.
Earlier, US refused to give Saakashvili a green card and/or a visa, which in itself is interesting. The reason: US needed him to have no choice but to stay close to Ukraine and Georgia, where he could cause most damage to Russia. However, my prediction is that with his latest actions, Saakashvili is helping Russia, Novorossia and Malorossia’s future in the long run.
After being kicked out of Ukraine Saakashvili became a person without citizenship and stayed in Poland. A few weeks ago, with the help of US and Poland, Saakashvili boldly and illegally crossed Ukraine border. The video of Saakashvili’s crossing is incredibly bizarre to watch. Kiev dispatched police, armed troops and armored vehicles to the border to prevent Saakashvili crossing. Yet, he was able to do so quite easily, with the help of a mob of local ukro-nazis. The Ukraine armed forces didn’t resist it very much. At this time Saakashvili is roaming Ukraine, threatening to expose and to oust Poroshenko during upcoming presidential elections.
The video below shows how Saakashvili forces his way into Ukraine from Poland, with the help of his ukro-nazi friends. On the Ukraine side he was met by Yulia Timoshenko (remember her?), who nurtures her own ambitions to become Ukraine PM or president, and whose ultimate goal is to unseat Poroshenko. For that, she is ready to make alliances with anyone, including Saakashvili. In the video below Georgian national Saakashvili, turned the most Ukrainian of all Ukrainians, is singing Ukrainian songs with his western Ukraine supporters. Later, they’ll head directly to Lvov, the capital of the ukro-nazi Galichina (western Ukraine), where he again will be greeted by Timoshenko, together with Lvov mayor Sadovoi, who also covets presidential chair.
Ukraine is a farce and a mad house, so what else is new? We had talked about the mad house called Ukraine in previous years, but this tragic comedy just gets better and better (or worse, depending on how you look at it).
This related article should not be missed! Kiev Scandals: Transatlantic Boss Joe Biden and Ukraine’s Spiders in a Jar (Saakashvili, Avakov, Yatsenyuk and Idiocracy Plus)
And of course, all about Saakashvili, including my March 2016 prediction that he would lose his Odessa governorship post no later than in 2017 (it actually happened in the end of 2016!) in Earth Shift Report 8: Black Sea Gambit.
How easily Saakashvili crossed into Ukraine reminds me of another famous episode, that of Lenin arriving to Russia in 1917, across several countries, including through Germany, which was at war with Russia at the time. Lenin arrived in time to head the Bolshevik Revolution on November 7, 1917.
We now know why Lenin’s carriage was allowed free passage through WWI-torn Europe and warring Germany: there was a collusion between UK and Germany to let him pass. In Saakashvili’s case, there has been a collusion between US and Poland.
Saakashvili is being kept in his useful capacity as a short leash and a whip for Poroshenko. For both Kiev and Poroshenko it can only get worse, and it can’t get any better. More turmoil to come!
This is a map of Ukraine, posted in the streets of Odessa (Odessa for now is a part of southern Ukraine). Over western and central Ukraine it reads in big letters ‘SOLD.’ Over eastern Ukraine: ‘LOST.’ Over the empty space where Crimea used to be as part of Ukraine: ‘LOST.’ Over southern Ukraine: ‘SOON TO BE LOST.’ If anyone still has any doubts of the language spoken in the south and east of Ukraine — well, in most of Ukraine really — it is Russian, of course. As a matter of fact the text on the flier above is in Russian, not Ukrainian, which is turning more and more into an artificial language.

Engineering Feat of the 21st Century: Crimean Bridge Brings Together Previously Unconnectable Shores
The Crimean Bridge, correctly called in Russian Krimsky Most or Kerchensky Most (the Kerch Bridge), is nearing completion, and may even be opened to traffic ahead of schedule in 2018!
The Crimean Bridge connects something that was previously considered unconnectable: The Crimean Peninsula and mainland Russia, through the Kerch Strait between Black and Azov Seas.
This construction has already been dubbed ‘The Engineering Feat of the 21st Century.’ You may ask, what is all the noise about? Why is it such a big deal and why it’s so important geopolitically, economically, and as yet another step towards full Russian sovereignty and fulfillment of Russia’s destiny as THE GREAT BALANCER, DURING THIS EARTH SHIFT.
Right near the surface there are these obvious reasons:
1. The Crimean Bridge is a symbol. Of what? First of all, of the awakening and re-consolidation of Russia – The Great Balancer. The giant, which sometimes goes to sleep to meditate on the past and recuperate from previous ills, is re-awakening.
Russia’s role as the Great Balancer is paramount for this Great Earth Shift. Russia has to be at her best and strongest. The fact that such a significant bridge is being built is a sign that Russia is getting back into shape.
It is also a symbol that reminds people where they belong and what is right and what is wrong. It’s the bridge that connects and awakens people not only in Russia, but in many other places, including Ukraine (and those sorely need an awakening!).
2. It is already considered the most impressive sea bridge in the world. The total length of the bridge is 20 km. A very long and massive bridge, this billions-worth mega-infrastructure project, is being successfully fulfilled despite all the Western anti-Russia sanctions.
This multipurpose strategic project will tremendously boost the economical auto and train traffic to and from Crimea. This, in turn, will eliminate traffic jams, boost tourism to Crimean resorts and lower prices. A win-win for Crimea and all of Russia.
3. The bridge is necessary to ensure a complete infrastructure independence of Crimea from Ukraine, which in turn takes away some blackmail and sabotage leverage from the Kiev junta, EU and US.
I previously wrote how Kiev junta, in collusion with the Crimean Tartar Mejlis and ukro-nazi battalions blew up power transformers and demolished power lines to Crimea, leaving 2.5 million people without power in December 2015, in the middle of winter and right before holidays. Together with the Western sanctions, this was designed to cripple Russia and ignite a color revolution among unhappy Crimeans. During such confusion and/or color revolution, Kiev/Mejlis and their foreign sponsors — US/CIA, and at the time also Turkey — hoped to invade Crimea.
Russia immediately responded to the challenge by beginning an urgent construction of the underwater Energy Bridge to Crimea from mainland, through the Kerch Strait.
Those who masterminded and financed this mass sabotage, knew that Crimean infrastruture depended completely on the favor of Ukraine. Moreover, they calculated that due to the USSR breakup and ’90s pirate privatization Russia had stopped producing certain equipment necessary to quickly eliminate the Crimean power deficiency, such as underwater electric cables, emergency generators and portable power stations. Shipping also was a huge problem; they counted on the fact that the only railroad and only two highways to Crimea were built through Ukraine.
Again, as I emphasized many times before, ALL infrastructure was built on the territory we today call Ukraine, by Russia. It all began with the Russian tsars and industrial entrepreneurs in the 18th-19th centuries, starting with Catherine the Great. The USSR continued the development and building up of Ukraine.
What we know today as Donbass, with all its mining and industrial activity, was created by Russia; Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, and innumerable other towns, cities and ports were founded throughout earlier centuries by Catherine the Great or other Russian emperors, or by the Soviets in the 20th century.
Those who yell and scream about Ukraine being completely independent of Russia are simply usurious liars, who are eating through the last remnants of the formerly rich Russian/Soviet inheritance, which Ukraine was lucky to obtain as a result of the break-up of the USSR.
During the December 2015 power outage, as a result of Western sanctions, no Western company would supply electric generators so the children and the elderly of Crimea wouldn’t freeze to death. Russia found a quick solution to this: portable power generators, and even whole portable power plants, were purchased from China. Some of these were delivered to Crimea as quickly as within 2 weeks.
Russia also immediately began construction of the underwater Power Bridge through the Kerch Strait, consisting of 4 lines of power cables. The power cables were also supplied by China on an emergency basis. First two power lines were completed in record time, before the New Year 2016. The last two were built by May 2016. New power plants were urgently built in Crimea, as well. As a result, not only Crimea now has enough self-sufficient power, it actually has a surplus of it, in order to accommodate a growing number of tourists.
Along with the Power Bridge, new phone and TV cable underwater bridges from mainland were also built. As a result Crimea became almost completely independent of Ukraine’s whims.
Next, Kiev tried the ‘food blockade’ of Crimea. The same thugs, such as Mejlis and ukro-nazis (all banned terrorist organizations in Russia, by the way), stopped farming produce trucks from Kherson, Nikolaev and Odessa, and didn’t let them pass to Crimea. As a result, it wasn’t Crimea that suffered: they damaged Ukrainian agriculture and put their own farmers in dire straits. Crimea quickly replaced Ukrainian supplies with those from other countries, including Turkey.
This was an interesting twist, and here’s why: Turkish extremists, working together with Mejlis, participated in the sabotage of Crimea; Turkey had high hopes of annexing Crimea for a long time. There is credible intel that Kiev, in collusion with the US, planned to pass Crimea to Turkey in exchange for Turkey’s continued hosting of US/EU NATO bases on its territory. At least in part it was Turkish money that financed Mejlis and their various terrorist activities.
However, Putin had managed to successfully neutralize these activities and ‘aspirations’ by Turkey, in his usual brilliant chess grandmaster style. I wrote about all this in EARTH SHIFT REPORTS 7 and 13. Well worth the read!
And as I wrote in 2014, US planed to turn Crimea into its massive military/navy base since early 2000s. Preparations were underway. But then in March 2014, after the Kiev coup, Crimeans ‘suddenly’ decided to reunite with Russia — and what a surprise it was for those who know nothing of the world and other cultures, but think they can rule this world. I can tell you: in Washington, they still can’t recover from the Crimea independence shock… They really did think Crimea was theirs for the taking.
After all the above failed, Kiev junta and CIA had taken to attempting terror acts inside Crimea. Russian FSB was extremely successful and efficient in apprehending ALL would-be terrorists, along with their subversive equipment.
The plan of synchronized multiple attacks on Crimea from within was rather grand: they were preparing to blow up the Crimean Bridge, blow up power stations and poison potable water all over the peninsula, thus creating humanitarian catastrophe, shortages, mass panic and confusion. All this was supposed to happen simultaneously, in a coordinated effort. The entire, grandly designed plan collapsed when FSB began apprehending Ukraine SBU operatives involved in it. Apprehended were also some Ukrainian sleeper cells and Crimean Tartars secretly involved with Mejlis.
Therefore, all possible ways to sabotage Russia and Crimea had failed.
At this point, the West has finally understood that Crimea is a forever part of Russia. No discussion and no stipulations. The EU has been timidly talking about lessening or taking off completely anti-Russian sanctions. However, predictably, their big boss from across the ocean won’t let them.
It has to be also noted that despite the blockade and animosity by Ukraine, in 2017 alone hundreds of thousands of Ukraine citizens continued vacationing in Crimea. Similarly, hundreds of thousands also worked as seasonal migrant workers, since Crimean salaries (now that it’s a part of Russia) are presently 2-4 times more than on the other side.
In addition to the Crimean Bridge, Russia is also building a new railroad, to bypass Ukraine completely. This railroad from Moscow and central Russia goes around Ukraine and will eventually continue through Crimean (Kerch) Bridge into Crimea. This will resolve any remaining transportation issues.
But there’s so much more beneath the surface! Why is the Crimean Bridge touted ‘the Feat of the 21st Century?’
In previous centuries, there were multiple attempts to build a bridge between mainland and Crimea, through the Kerch Strait — the narrowest point between two shores. However, all of these attempts failed.
The Kerch Strait is a point of separation between The small Azov Sea in the north, and a much larger Black Sea to the south. People who had never been to those parts may think that Black Sea is a quiet internal sea, which should be pretty safe. They can’t even imagine how unsafe and turbulent Black Sea can be. The area of the Black Sea around Kerch is considered one of the most stormy and hard to navigate. Currents between Azov and Black Seas can be deadly and changeable. Winds are very powerful. This is why the eastern-most part of Crimea, the Kerch Peninsula, had never really developed as a resort. People flocked to the quiet and soothing southern parts, such as Yalta. Instead, Kerch historically served as one of the Russian fleet bases.
The first attempt to build a bridge between the narrowest part of the Kerch Strait and mainland was made during the Russian Empire, in the 19th century. Crimea was growing as a resort and vineyards, and more convenient access points were wanted. However, strong winds and currents overcame the budding bridge very quickly and the project was abandoned, although calls to restart it continued.
In the 20th century two most dramatic attempts to build a bridge took place. In the 1930s, the USSR began the construction of the bridge through the same narrow part of the Kerch Strait. The temporary bridge was built and began working. Joseph Stalin rode the bridge to Crimea, and later returned to mainland via the same bridge. The day after Stalin’s passage the bridge collapsed.
During the Great Patriotic War (WWII) Hitler decided to build a bridge to Crimea in order to invade Crimea from more than one direction. The bridge was almost completed when it collapsed and was carried away by the current, taking innumerable invaders with it.
After WWII the USSR never attempted another bridge. I do think that Khrushchev’s decision to pass Crimea under the administrative umbrella of the Ukrainian SSR was a huge geopolitical mistake. However, I’ll venture to guess that the difficulty and inconvenience of communication and transportation between the peninsula and Russian mainland was at least a contributing factor in his decision. The idea was that being under the UkrSSR administrative umbrella, Crimea would have a smoother logistics. Of course at the time, no one dreamed that Russia and Ukraine may not be together.
The construction of the new Russsian Crimean Bridge / Kerch Bridge started after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup in Kiev, and following the power-and-food blockade. By then it became abundantly clear that there was no reasoning with Ukraine’s junta.
In the 21 century the new technologies, unavailable to previous generations, are used to build this seemingly impossible to build bridge.
One of the things that was done differently: the bridge is NOT being built through the narrowest part of the strait, which is by far the shortest, but is also the most dangerous. Instead, a substantially longer, but safer area was chosen. Another technological breakthrough: the extra-long and extra-powerful pillars, which are screwed into the sea bed. The trick is, these don’t go into the sea bed straight, but at specific angles, which makes the whole structure much more stable.
Yesterday, the great news arrived: the main railway arch of the bridge was delivered and set in place. The creation and installation of this giant central arch is a feat in itself. Its length is almost 300 meters, and it weighs 6,600 tones. It was the very first time in history that such large object was pre-built on land, then delivered intact by sea and installed whole in the middle of the sea.

As I mentioned, the Crimean Bridge project is perceived as an important and meaningful symbol in Russia. At this moment, Russia’s most important music festival is taking place in Sochi. It is called The New Wave (Novaya Volna). At the New Wave, one of the best known Russian singers, Oleg Gazmanov, has presented new song ‘Krimsky Most’ (‘The Crimean Bridge’). The song is the winner of the ‘Crimean Bridge Song Competition’ and is written by a driver from Ivanovo, together with his children ~ see my additional info and video in this post’s COMMENT SECTION!
Listen up – a nice melody:
P.S. Incidentally, the New Wave festival for years took place in Yurmala, Latvia. This is a grand international annual event, bringing together new and established musical talent from many countries. At this international festival all songs are performed in Russian. After Latvia joined anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and began denying visas to Russian singers, such as the aforementioned Oleg Gazmanov, Novaya Volna (the New Wave) was moved to Sochi. Simultaneously, a prestigious Russian comedy competition, also taking place in Yurmala, Latvia, was also moved onto Russian territory. And then, another extremely prestigious and mega-popular international summer music and humor festival, called Muzikalny Kivin (Musical Kivin) was also moved from Latvia to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, also located on the Baltic coast.
Therefore, overnight Latvia lost multi-million Russian tourism and music festival business.
But I’m sure Latvia is doing just fine! After all, instead of the uplifting music festivals and peaceful tourists, a few hundred US soldiers moved into town as part of NATO expansion, due to ‘imminent Russian invasion threat.’ Surely, they’ll spend in local bars and (excuse me) brothels much more than hundreds of thousands of Russian music-lovers and beach-goers would! I hear US/NATO soldiers stationed in Riga tend to conveniently forget to pay for their drinks and taxi rides, so that at times local bartenders and taxi drivers have to beat it out of them. Fast karma?..

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.

Much like the Mosul offensive in Iraq was supposed to be victoriously accomplished in time for US Presidential Elections on November 8, 2016, to give Hillary a boost, various terrorist plots in Russia and Donetsk were also planned to be completed by then for the same purpose. Plus, of course the big one: punish Russia.
We know that Mosul push went nowhere. No ‘Mission accomplished’ in Iraq.
Now let’s see what came out of multiple terrorist attempts in Russia.
This is a follow up to my recent Putin Makes His Move! Russian Economy Minister Alexey Ulyukaev Arrested for Corruption.
FSB FOILS MAJOR TERROR ATTACKS
Just days prior to US Elections on November 8, FSB began announcing detention of suspected terrorists and spies. Subversive cells’ arrests are continuing in Russia and Donetsk.
CIA and Kiev junta’s attempts to sabotage and terrorize CRIMEA turn sour
You may recall that several months ago there was a major attempt by Ukraine to infiltrate Crimea with its subversive operatives, who were supposed to bomb crucial infrastructure objects in order to create a humanitarian catastrophe. Confessions by said subversives, who turned out to be career officers of Ukrainian army, revealed that their acts were specifically aimed at disrupting Russian Duma Elections 2016.
More about it in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 11: ALL ABOUT 2016 RUSSIAN DUMA ELECTIONS.
Objects to be bombed included chemical and power plants, as well as hospitals and the famous Crimean Bridge. One-of-a-kind engineering feat, the massive Crimean Bridge, has been dubbed the project of the century. It will connect Crimea with mainland Russia through the Kerch Peninsula, bypassing Ukraine and, thus, alleviating pressure on Crimea. The construction is projected to be completed by the end of 2017-18.
The Ukraine terrorists were also supposed to mass-poison potable water. Crimea suffers from water shortage after in 2014 the Kiev junta destroyed the only ample water source, The North Crimean Canal, running through Ukraine and built by the USSR. You may recall that in August there were real battles on the border, when Kiev military attempted a veritable invasion into Crimean territory. While deflecting the multiple attacks and arresting armed subversive groups near the border, FSB and Russian Border Guard lost two men.
In late October – early November, another major terror group was arrested. This time the subversive acts were aimed at aiding Hillary and undermining Trump during US Elections. The head of this subversive group is a colonel of Ukraine GUR (State Office of Intelligence). It has to be noted that Russian Intelligence is called GRU (State Intelligence Office). It appears that the Ukraine GUR name was parroted after Russian, but so it wouldn’t seem too blatant, the letters were changed around.
Some of these groups were embedded since 2014, as sleeper cells. They were left behind by Kiev as Crimea transitioned to Russia, with stated purpose of later aiding the future attack on Crimea from within. Others infiltrated into Crimea in the past couple of years, taking advantage of the fact that the border between Ukraine and Crimea is still easily crossed, due to tight connections between the people on both sides.
The original Plan A was for Ukraine, US, and – as they saw it at the time – Turkey, to attack Crimea together and take it back from Russia. Turkey was supposed to have a pivotal role, manipulating the Turkish discontent with the breakup of the Ottoman Empire. Turkish nationalist groups and Crimean Tartar terrorists, armed by Turkey, began amassing in Kherson Oblast bordering Crimea on the Ukraine side.
But there was a problem: Putin for years managed to smartly neutralize Turkey and Erdogan by lucrative trade deals. To accomplish the US/Kiev plan (Qatar and Saudis were also in on the hit), Turkey needed to be tied to Ukraine-US alliance by blood, so there would be no turning back to good relations with Russia. Turkey had to be ‘subverted’ so a rift between Turkey and Russia would become irreparable.
This was attempted through the downing of the Russian Su24 in Syria in 2015 by the Turkish army. That incident, which shocked Russians and was likened by Putin to a knife in the back, nearly did put a stop to Russia-Turkey cooperation. But that turned out to be insufficient. Both Putin and Erdogan turned out too smart. Not to mention, Russian Intelligence turned out significantly ahead of the CIA.
Having figured out what was happening, Erdogan (with Russian intel’s help?) fired the main US asset in his government, PM Davutoglu (an ethnic Crimean Tartar). He also made insistent steps to reconcile with Russia. He had the intermediary help from Kazakh President Nazarbayev, who served as a bridge. When it was discovered that Erdogan is attempting to win back Putin’s friendship, a coup against him was organized by Turkish army officers on CIA payroll. Erdogan escaped capture and Gaddafi-like end by minutes, because Putin authorized Russian Intelligence to send him a timely warning.
The coup failed and past relations with Russia, including the most important element, energy cooperation and Turkish Stream, are being restored. Meanwhile, the plot backfired and Turkey-NATO cooperation is slowly but surely dying. Give NATO just a few years and it’ll be dead.
Incidentally, for his help in restoring Turkey-Russia relations, Nazarbayev was made pay through a color revolution attempt, which, of course, failed.
All about Turkey, how Russians warned Erdogan of the military coup, how the coup failed, how relations were reconciled and US/NATO lost Turkey as ally read in top-rated:
All about Kazakhstan color revolution attempt and terror attacks, as well as color revolution attempts in Armenia and other EAEU states, who and why organized them:
Video ESR9 Attack on Kazakhstan: Who Destabilizes Eurasian Union? (includes video of attempted attacks).
In the end, it became clear that Russia wasn’t destroyed economically through sanctions, oil price drop and ruble attacks, as US promised Kiev junta since 2014. Turkish gambit didn’t work out either.
And the result is, as I predicted in 2014! US is sick and tired of the whiny and inept Kiev and Poroshenko, while Kiev and Ukrainians are mad at US and EU for betrayal. As I was predicting since the VERY BEGINNING of the Ukraine saga: EU and US don’t know how to drop Ukraine as a hot potato, or squeezed out lemon they have no use for. When Trump takes office, my prediction will be complete: US will drop Ukraine.
You all recall one of my big 2014 predictions: Ukraine will begin turning away from the West and back towards Russia in 2016-18. By the end of 2018, this process will be complete.
And in this regard, also recall what I said in 2014: it’ll be all of Ukraine, not bits and pieces, as many suggested. No one seemed to hear me at the time, as everyone was bent on dividing Ukraine. Nope, it’ll be ALL of Ukraine. Possibly minus a few tiny pieces in the West, but even that is unlikely. This is my prediction since 2014 and it remains so. If my track record is any indication, you will see this prediction come true, as so many others before.
Having been denied the real war in Crimea, Kiev junta had no choice but to go to Plan B: subversive terror attacks. But, as many may know, Russian FSB and Intelligence are, shall we say, in the world’s top 2, if not 1. As Ukraine subversives activated, they began being apprehended.
Full video of one of the latest subversive’s arrests in Crimea, released by FSB:
Donetsk and Lugansk
Similar situation developed in Donetsk, capital of DNR (Eng: DPR). In the past 2-3 weeks MGB of DNR arrested at least 2 separate ukro-nazi and Ukraine subversive groups on its territory. MGB means Ministry of State Security. These groups were prepared to begin acts of terror and sabotage, similar to Crimea. Also detained were the suspected assassins of the legendary Donetsk commander Motorola, with the telling name «Misanthropic Division». Video in Russian about ukro-nazi «Misanthropic Division» and who they are: Кто такие «Misanthropic Division»? О предполагаемых убийцах Моторолы.
This is the video of the arrest of six alleged Motorola assassins from «Misanthropic Division», who bragged about it online:
The latest: also LNR (Lugansk) announced that they uncovered a plot to blow up the Schastie power plant. The canal feeding water to the power plant in question was mined by the Ukraine subversives. VIDEO announcement.
Major op in Moscow and St. Petersburg
In St. Petersburg and Moscow terrorist sleeper cells’ arrests continue. Since prior to US Elections, almost daily FSB has been detaining dozens of subversives.
Videos from various sources about detentions of subversives in St.Pete and Moscow. It has been confirmed that they were all members of ISIL, originally from Central Asia (in other words, members of these cells were Uzbeks, Tajiks, Kyrgyzs, Turkmens). They were preparing bombings in public places in both capitals. Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan special services aided in the arrests.
Collusion between ISIL, Kiev and CIA
We know that terror attacks in Crimea, Donetsk and Russia mainland were planned simultaneously. This clearly denotes a collusion between ISIL, Kiev junta and CIA. As if we needed more proof of that…
CIA evacuating from Kiev to Romania
I was asked whether it was true that CIA operatives were evacuating from Kiev. Yes, it’s true. In 2014 CIA took over the upper 4th floor of the SBU building in Kiev, where Ukrainians were banned from entering. American flag flew over that Ukrainian government building. After Trump election and arrests of subversives in Russia, CIA operatives have hastily evacuated all their papers and moved to Romania. Only CIA analysts (read surveillance, spies-monitors) remain in Kiev.
I can tell you more. This reminds me of one of the most shameful pages in human history: WWII. Anticipating the end, in 1944 Hitler Nazis were hastily burning and evacuating their papers and leaving behind sleeper cells to attack Russia later from within. Some of these cells were the Bandera ukro-nazis trained and left behind in Ukraine. It is the heirs of those Bandera followers who spread fascism all over Ukraine and executed the 2014 coup.
Fast-forward to the end of 2016. History repeats! Anticipating the beginning of the end, both CIA and Kiev junta are now busy embedding long-term sleeper cells all over Ukraine.
Odessa and Saakashvili resignation
In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT of 3/31/16, I predicted that Saakashvili would only be the governor of Odessa till 2017. My exact words were: ‘Meet international criminal, ex-president of Georgia and US agent, Mikhail Saakashvili, governor of Odessa 2015-2017.’ You can read these words in the ESR8 description by clicking above link. In the report you can further read why I said that. Saakashvili resigned his post on November 7, 2016 (this sly fox wanted to position himself for the new US president). Saakashvili resignation will officially go through in the beginning of 2017, right on the dot, per my prediction.
Maidan 3.0 developing in Kiev
Protests headed by opposition leaders Evgeny Muraev and Rabinovich (Party Za Zhisn’ -For Life) demand the sacking of the head of Central Bank Gontareva and Ukraine currency back at pre-2014-coup rate of 8 grivnas per dollar.
Sure, keep dreaming… These are, of course, purely populist slogans. You can’t have strong currency after you’ve destroyed your economy. The problem is also that a catastrophic winter is ahead, while utilities charges keep climbing. Some Ukrainians won’t survive this winter.
MY PLANS FOR NEXT FEW WEEKS
How long has Poroshenko and Kiev junta got? Not too long now. What should we expect in Ukraine next? Secession movements in Western Ukraine? Will Maidan 3.0 materialize? Who’s really protesting against whom? I’ll discuss all this in a separate video, which will be released soon.
Next week I’ll also have a new piece (it’ll be either an article or a video) on the spectacular turnaround in Moldova and Bulgaria elections – the situation is developing exactly as predicted in ESR8 and my earlier Moldova articles.
I plan to go over the heating up situation in Pridnestrovie, as well. The sly Putin’s plan re. Pridnestrovie and Moldova and what to expect in the region in the next few years. (Also watch video: Pridnestrovie vs Moldova: Eurasian Union vs EU (LadaRayLive 2).)
Following my Trump win prediction coming true, I plan a follow up video on Trump, whether Hillary will go to jail, and more.
Stay tuned for future announcements regarding Holiday specials and consulting services with Lada Ray!

Lada Ray PREDICTIONS
Dear friends and followers!
Thank you for your wonderful continued support and donations!
I really appreciate it!
Dear readers, you all know that my mission is to illuminate and reveal the truth, as well as to restore balance in our severely confused and imbalanced world. Sometimes we have good intentions, but our enthusiasm (and our stereotypes, based on our often limited experience and understanding of the situation) may show it to us in a distorted mirror.
For example, as the post below will demonstrate, the situation with police isn’t necessarily the same, or could even be drastically different, in Ukraine as opposed to the USA.
I have received this email from one of my supporters. I’ll keep it anonymous, however, I am sure he will approve of me publishing his nameless comment because I know he is after the real, honest truth as much as I am.
‘Thought this was astoundingly brilliant for these Ukrainian ladies to use mirrors like this. I felt you’d like to see this.
Images (click on link above for more):
Now, let me begin by saying that there is a falsehood I detect in these images from the get-go. I think those who published this article either don’t know the background or seek to manipulate it for their own agenda, either knowingly or unknowingly.
Here’s why: they didn’t tell the truth about the origin of these images, and for a good reason, because, as I suspect, they may have been taken during violent attack on the Russian embassy during yesterday’s elections. This is illegal by international law and in a normal world it would have caused severe condemnation of Ukraine by the international community. But in our warped world, it is somehow lauded as a ‘protest’ in the West, both by MSM and – it turns out – by alternative media.
They don’t say which protest exactly these images are from. But since the last such event were attacks on the Russian embassy in Kiev and on the Russian consulate in Odessa, it’s very possible at least some of these are from yesterday, Sunday, September 18, 2016 violent protest by Svoboda party ukro-fascists at the Russian embassy in Kiev. Even if they are not: I have seen yesterday’s videos in which similar grannies and grandpas spat at police and yelled at them: ‘I hate you, you sold out for Poroshenko’s chocolates.’ Note that this is being yelled at police because they are protecting Russian embassy from destruction and voters from being beaten up.
Kiev junta and ukro-nazis of all kinds, including Kiev Rada deputies, did everything yesterday to prevent Russian citizens residing in Ukraine from voting in Russian elections. They wouldn’t let them through, tried to damage the embassy and beat people up. Most voters were too afraid to come near the embassy.
It has to be noted that threats against voters and failure of a host country to protect the embassy and foreign voters during election in any country is considered international crime. We live in a very international world and most countries have expats. There are 80,000 Russian citizens in Ukraine. How they came to be is another story and I’ll explain that in the upcoming ESR on Russian Elections 2016.
Kiev first attempted to ban Russian elections on Ukrainian territory and announced that no protection would be granted. After pressure by EU and Russia, Kiev reluctantly dispatched police for Russian embassy’s protection. These policemen, who just stood there, whose job it was to protect voters and embassy of a foreign state, were subjected to extreme insults by ‘protesters.’ Even more grave insults were hurled at Russia, including calls to ‘destroy Russia and kill all Russians’ and statements that ‘there is no such thing as Russia.’
I have to say that police did a half hearted job in Kiev, and one of the reasons was because grannies and burly thugs alike attacked and shamed them.
Just like with 2014 Kiev coup, grannies were there for the MSM pictures, as a PR stunt. The real dirty work was done by burly militants.
I am preparing a full Earth Shift Report about Russian Elections 2016, which I’ll publish around this Wednesday. In the report, you’ll be able to see videos and pics of the crazy mayhem that went on in Ukraine yesterday, as opposed to how civilized the vote was all over Russia and all over the world.
Sorry to tell you: these poor confused grannies are just convenient dupes for the Western propaganda. They are the ones who facilitated, and continue doing so, fascism in Ukraine.
The video included in the above-linked article, which incidentally has already been deleted, reads in Ukrainian: ‘Defenders of Berkut, watch this video and shut up forever.’ Based on the ‘brilliant’ and ‘highly sophisticated’ language I can tell you that the video comes from either ‘right sector’ or Svoboda ukro-nazis.
Berkut was the special police called in to calm down the 2014 Kiev Maidan. Berkut was given order by then president Yanukovich to just stand there and not respond, while being beaten up and set on fire by West-trained, pumped up with heavy drugs ukro-nazi thugs.
Back then these kinds of grannies were at the Maidan as well. They protested in 2014 because their pensions were meager and because they were duped by the EU and their oligarch-controlled MSM into believing in the EU fairytale. They were told: the moment they join the EU their pensions will be on par with European and they will all be given free BMWs and villas on the Mediterranean. If you think I am joking – nope, I’m dead serious. This was Ukraine propaganda in 2012-2014.
Now, after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup, with Kiev junta and Poroshenko/US occupational forces in power, grivna has gone through the floor, country is teetering on the verge of default, pensions and salaries are a tiny fraction of what they were in 2013 under dreaded Yanukovich. These poor grannies simply can’t survive after electricity/heating rates shot up by 25 times in some places, and the cost of food and medicine has gone through the roof. Meanwhile, the Kiev propaganda blames for this disaster not their own failures, but – who else! The convenient villain catch-all, Russia and Putin.
These grannies are like the Luddites, who destroyed machines at factories during UK industrialization because they were unhappy with their lives and confused as to who to blame for their exploitation. These frustrated grannies should be protesting and dealing with the oligarchs in power, plus foreign occupation of the country by the US/Canada/West. They should be protesting those who get rich off the bloody civil war and bombing of civilians in Donbass.
They should be throwing out of their cushy offices those who caused a breakup with Russia, resulting in a systemic destruction of Ukraine’s economy and loss of sorely needed 15bln in profits from Russian trade. They should be demanding their sold-out puppet government to be replaced with those who genuinely love Ukraine and who would work on restoring good relations and economic ties with Russia – the only country that can help Ukraine get up from its knees.
But they don’t see their own image in the mirror. They are incapable of seeing the truth without distortions. To them, someone else has to be blamed for their lost hope to ‘join EU and live like Europeans.’ For their brains, completely zombified by Kiev propaganda and feeling the humiliation from Crimea and Donbass leaving Ukraine, Russia is the arch-enemy.
So is the police – another easy arch-enemy at whom to lash out. The reason for that is this: they are afraid to attack Poroshenko and his cronies, who are too well protected. If they tried, they’d be shot at or hauled off to jail for life. But simple policemen are just cannon fodder. These ‘protesters’ know that unlike in the USA, Ukraine police was ordered not to respond and treat them all with kid gloves. They know they can insult their police safely and with abandon.
(Note, I am emphatically NOT on the side of Ukraine police – I do think they are sold out and inadequate. But even more so, I am for truth, fairness, reason and balance).
What the author of that article has done (here is the LINK again) is legitimize and promote ukro-fascists, Kiev junta and USA’s takeover of Ukraine. Congratulations, you’ve arrived!
My dear Western friends, if you really mean well and want meaningful change in our big common world, then at least talk about what you know! Don’t talk or show things you have no idea about!
Protests are a good thing. There is a glaring problem with police brutality in the USA and I can see how protests in America are necessary.
However, in the EU for example, police is quite meek, almost too polite and politically correct, rendering it ineffective. In the EU the opposite is true: people wish the police would do more to make them feel protected and secure.
At the same time, in Russia the complete overhaul and sweeping police reform, following prior corruption scandals and population’s discontent, caused a very serious turnaround in police work and oversight. Russia now again has one of the most well-balanced and well-trained police forces in the world.
Meanwhile, Ukraine police is in a disastrous shape: in addition to being extremely corrupt, it is simultaneously inept, demoralized, humiliated and emasculated. Without effective police force, crime, killings, attacks and lawlessness reign supreme in Ukraine, to which police are usually indifferent.
There you have it: one size doesn’t fit all. Moreover, it is strongly suggested one knows the subject before talking about it.
I have published this article to help you, my friends, orient yourself in the confusing sea of conflicting information. My only goal is to illuminate the truth and to educate. I hope the author of this comment, and my readers, understand my motivation!

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!

The title of the video below in Russian is: ‘Dear Ukrainians, this video is especially for you: Crimean tourism infrastructure flourishes.’ Such title because Kiev MSM and politicians insist that Crimea is falling apart under ‘Russian rule.’ Of course, this is silly and reality cannot be further from the truth. But some people in Ukraine, completely zombified by propaganda, actually believe this. In fact, Crimea was falling apart and dying a slow death under Kiev. Presently, even despite excruciating water, food, transport and energy blockade, Crimea is being fixed up and rebuilt.
It is surfacing every day that those navy and army officers who believed Kiev and left Crimea in 2014 to continue serving in Ukraine army, are now little by little defecting and returning to Crimea. Sometimes whole units defect.
Crimean attractions are world-famous: Yalta’s beaches, gorgeous nature and imperial palaces (say, Levadia Palace where Stalin, Rosevelt and Churchill met in 1945); Swallow’s Nest; world’s largest children’s recreation resort/summer camp Artek,; Sevastopol’s Black Sea fleet base and underground Soviet mega-submarine base; various historic palaces, beaches, parks, rock climbing, natural caves and ethnic food.
On this short video: Crimea is being fixed up from the neglect and abuse it endured during 23 years of being looted by Kiev oligarchs/ nationalistic politicians, and re-styled as an all-year round sea resort with emphasis on rejuvenation spa, health tourism and all-inclusive tours that Russians prefer.
Some gorgeous Black Sea views on this video!
On video: Crimean Bridge projected look – the construction has begun, to be completed by the end of 2018. February off-season Crimean hiking and famous Marble Caves, where natural stalagmite castles and palaces have been built by nature itself.
Next on video: various hotel accommodations with off- and on-season all-inclusive pricing. Next: budget/ inexpensive private sector pricing. Simferopol Airport now receives 5 mln passengers a year, more than during Soviet times. After reconstruction scheduled for 2018 more flights from Russia and abroad will be received.
Kerch Strait option by car or by plane from mainland: you can leave the car in designated parking on mainland side and buy 1/2 price subsidized ticket to a city in Crimea: Yalta, Simferopol, Sevastopol, Feodosia, etc. The bus takes you to ferry and then to your destination. Tickets really do sound very cheap: from Krasnodar to Sevastopol/Yevpatoria/Yalta – about 810 rub.
In the end: Bakhchisarai (the capital of Crimean Tatars) has a park of minis: main architectural attractions of Crimea, with various historic palaces, etc. Crimean Tatar national cooking is shown. Crimean tourist expo in Yalta will choose the best all-inclusive tour route for Crimean season 2016. These are offered by various tour operators. Winner will be chosen by tourist vote.
#Krim #Crimea #Sevastopol #Yalta #geopolitics #CrimeanBridge
Despite it’s abundant natural and man-made beauty, Crimea rarely new lasting peace. It has for centuries been a geopolitical hot spot and a bone of contention for great powers vying for control of Black Sea. The real reason has always been the control of Russia’s soft underbelly.
The only time Crimea had any chance for peace and prosperity was when it was an integral part of Russia. Today, it is regaining what it once lost.
Not all is rosy in Crimea, which is natural as a manifestation of the growing pains, magnified as a result of relentless sabotage and acts of terrorism by Ukraine, Turkey, ISIS and US/EU.
The worrying vestige of the ‘independent’ Ukraine’s past – remaining local corruption, neglect, lack of caring for one’s own land and understanding how to govern for the good of all – are also heavy burdens on those who are working extremely hard to return Crimea to its former glory.
However, despite all these difficulties, the general direction is towards optimism, stability, prosperity and hope. Crimea is again beginning to blossom.
External threats continue and they are close by: one of them is the US naval super-base, being secretly built in Odessa, not too far from Crimea, also on the Black Sea shore. Read all about it, along with dire futurist’s predictions in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.
Another threat is even closer to home: attempts to create a Kosovo-like Muslim enclave in neghboring Kherson and Nikolaev oblasts on the Ukrainian side, populating it by Turks, Crimean Tatar Mejlis and escaped ISIS terrorists. The Odessa Black Sea Gambit story is directly related to the noise around Crimea and clandestine attempts to subvert Nikolaev and Kherson. It is an attempt by the same forces who subverted Ukraine to preserve geopolitical control of the entire Black Sea coast, in order to weaken Russia.
Map below shows Crimean peninsula (in pink) in relation to the Russian mainland (pink) and the rest of northern Black Sea coast: Odessa, Kherson and Nikolaev (in green, as part of Ukraine). Click on map to enlarge.
