Ukraine finally forced Russia to react to the never-ending stream of provocations, hostile actions and sanctions. So far, over 300 individuals and 68 companies are on the list, including infamous oligarchs and politicians, who have property and assets in Russia. Properties and assets are being frozen and money transfers from Russia blocked for these people and companies.
On the list are Yulia Timoshenko, Poroshenko’s son Alexei, interior minister Avakov, and many of the Ukraine oligarchs and politicians. But this is only the beginning! I seriously hope there’s more to come! Those individuals only understand force, they don’t get nice and they don’t get reason!
Listen to details:
The funny thing is, conspicuously missing from the list are: Poroshenko and Ukraine foreign minister Klimkin, who recently admonished Ukrainians publicly, demanding they all give up their ‘secret’ Russian passports. It turned out many Ukrainians do secretly hold dual Russian citizenships. The funniest part is that Klimkin himself also has one! Therefore, the ongoing joke in Russia today is that only Klimkin is expected to give up his Russian passport, but no one else.
The fact that these individuals aren’t on the sanctions list makes one almost think they are… secret ‘Kremlin agents’?..
Incidentally, Ukraine will have elections next year, and Poroshenko’s rating is sorely lagging being in single digits. No matter how much he tries to play anti-Russia card it’s not working. The highest rated Tymoshenko’s rating is only about 15%! Meanwhile, their negative ratings (rating of how much people distrust these characters) are through the roof!

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