PART 10, which you are reading today, is the first part of the CONCLUSION!
I will publish the last PART 11 soon! So far its topic is a secret. STAY TUNED!
WHY PUTIN IS THE ONLY CHOICE
In a few hours the preliminary results of the Russian Presidential Election 2018 will be announced. The result was so obvious this time that I didn’t even bother making my famoust predictions.
Ok, I’ll make one prediction:
Putin will get a higher percentage of votes than the February forecast: See Part 1. The forecast was for 73-74%. I see it as high 70s to low 80s.
I’ll leave it at that.
A FEW URGENT VIDEO UPDATES FROM RUSSIA:
Presently, the polls are open. LIVE: Polls open for the 2018 Russian presidential elections.
This will go live in a couple of hours — LIVE: Putin speaks from election headquarters after results are announced
Ukraine: Russian citizens denied access to voting station in Odessa (Ukrainian authorities prevented Russian citizens from voting at the Russian consulate in Odessa. The same, and even more violent circus is going on around Kiev & the rest of Ukraine)
Why Putin is the only choice?
Just look at what’s happening around the world…
1. The West is going nuts, yelling, baiting and attacking Russia from all directions.
2. Ukraine has gone nuts several years ago, and counting. The junta completely lost it. And the new, even crazier events are developing as we speak in Ukraine. Incindentally, the newest developments are something I predicted back in 2016! I’ll talk about that in a few weeks, time allowing.
3. Due to irresponsible actions by the UK, US and West in general (latest Skripal and E. Ghouta/Syria events), the world is, yet again balancing on the edge of the WWIII abyss, away from which Russia the Great Balancer and Putin personally dragged it previously more that once.
4. This was the first time Western style full-scale presidential debates were organized on live Russian national TV. Read all about it in PART 2.
All presidential candidates, regardless of how small their support was (there were 8 in total), were invited to participate. Compare that to the US, where only 2 RULING parties are allowed to participate in the debate, and others are simply banned!
Putin did not participate in the televised debates. As I told you, his official polite explanation was that he was busy, and indeed he was, running Russia in the midst of some of the most difficult time.
However, as I said in Part 3 of PUTIN 2018 & RUSSIAN ELECTION, the real reason is that he was too kind to other candidates, because it would have been like an ELEPHANT next to a bunch of little yappy poodles (sorry, no offense, poodles!).
And it was proven during the most democratic debates I’ve ever seen. And I mean it! Everyone was allowed to say what they wanted and needed, Western style. And the whole country, and the whole world saw clearly that PUTIN WAS THE ONLY CHOICE.
In the US and UK they may be used to this kind of violent and disrespectful behavior on national TV, but Russians aren’t. And they watched with their eyes popped, in horrified fascination what was happening, being reaffirmed in their conviction that Putin is the only person fit to rule Russia, while exerting such unparalleled influence over the world.
The incidents ranged from near brawls to threats and splashings with water.
1. Zhririnovsky vs. Ksenia Sobchak called each other names and splashed water. See for yourself in PART 3: Zhirinovsky vs. Sobchak: Unlikely Brawl on Live Russian TV Between Presidential Candidates
+ Lada Ray Analysis!
2. Several other candidates made presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak cry on live TV. (I have to say, things she was saying… Who needs CNN or BBC, if you have Sobchak!)
3. A loud scandal, plus a very violent near brawl, prevented by host and other candidates, took place in the last debate between candidate for the Communists of Russia Suraikin and Communist Party candidate Grudinin, plus his second Maxim Shevchenko — all on live national TV. This is the scandal in question.
Detailed and very interesting report on both communist parties and their crisis here: ESR 21 P6 MEGA-REPORT.
4. During one of the debates, in response to UK Theresa May’s ultimatum to Russia in the Skripal case, candidate from LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky said that: He was the ‘only candidate’ to be the commander in chief of the Russian Army and added that all Russia needed in order to properly respond to the Skripal attack by the UK ‘were two missiles, and that would be the end of May and UK.’ Here’s the episode in question: Zhirinovsky on Salisbury Issue: We Need Only Two Rockets And British Isles Will Be Wiped Out!
Russians are looking at the dog and pony show in the UK; at the US threats in Syria; at the NATO countries ganging up against Russia; at the crazy events just across the border in Ukraine, plus at other candidates during the debates, and they know: It’s Putin and only Putin!
Moreover, however hilarious this may sound, the collective West has listened to candidate Zhirinovsky (to be fair, that’s his usual rhetoric) and decided that Putin, after all, is a much safer choice.
Besides, the people both in Russia and around the world are comparing Vladimir Putin to all that riff raff in charge of the West (see latest UK episode, one of many), and we all know: Putin is the only sane and adult leader, capable of stopping the US/UK/West’s madness, and not only theirs.
A Russian, traditionally pro-West, anti-Putin neoliberal, Boris Nadezhdin, said it best in the latest TV talk show with Vladimir Soloviev. Shaking his head, he said that after observing the US/UK aggressive attitudes, the Ukraine craze, Syria, plus what happened in the debates, he began experiencing the urge to vote for Putin.
And that’s a traditional anti-Putin neoliberal, responsible for the ’90s disaster! Even those in Russia who were against Putin for whatever reason, are now reconsidering. The collective West, with their constant attacks and sanctions against Russia, has done something they are too dumb to grasp: THE HAVE UNITED RUSSIANS AROUND PUTIN, like nothing else would.
As I have been predicting since 2014 and every year after, I might add!
I want to give you some of the facts from Putin’s life, in video format, with ENG subs. Some of these materials were top secret or classified, and some were never revealed publicly due to how modest Putin is. Before this election, all stops were pulled, and stories, previously only whispered by some, became known to all.
I have told you one of these stories in ESW6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA. I heard it a long time ago from the horse’s mouth in E. Germany, and later from a Russian intelligence operative.

I am continuing to publish episodes from the new EARTH SHIFT REPORT 21: PUTIN 2018 & RUSSIAN ELECTION (ESR21)
Yesterday, I published the CULMINATION of ESR21 P8: Putin’s 10-Year Plan & His Vision for Russia’s Future!
READ PART 9 BELOW!
LADA RAY’S PREVIEW & IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Below you’ll be reading the continuation of the 3-part Culmination of my new experimental, serialized EARTH SHIFT REPORT 21: PUTIN 2018 & RUSSIAN ELECTION (ESR21), timed to coincide with Russian Election 2018!
For nearly half-a-month I tried to present to you a fair, multi-faceted and balancedmicrocosm of the contemporary Russian political process, together with a glimpse at both Russia’s turbulent past and exciting future.
This is why I presented fairly to you ALL sides of the spectrum, from communists and far-left all the way to the far-right nationalists and pro-West neo-liberals; from the last-curtain old guard to the new and emerging forces (read about that below!)
Yes, Putin reigns supreme in Russia’s politics, and his vision for Russia is unsurpassed, confirming my Russia The Great Balancer vision!
But it would be incredibly naive and one-sided to limit your perception of Russia to just one Putin.
He is a true Russian democrat, and so am I. We think from our warm hearts, but also keep a logical, cool head on our shoulders.
This is vastly different from the fake Western ‘democracies,’ which proclaim the ideals of fairness only when it suits them and whose main goal is to affirm their full-spectrum global dominance. When things do not work out in their favor, they lose the thin veneer of their ‘democracy’ and turn outright nasty (as we are now observing with the Skripal UK case: more here).
Russia is multifaceted and vibrant. This is why Putin insists on various forces’ — even those small or adverse to him — participation in this election. This is why all candidates are given equal chances of the debate participation and Russian TV/MSM exposure, unlike in the West.
This is why I also am presenting to you ALL sides of the spectrum. It appears to me some people don’t get it. But the majority, I hope, does!
This is the only way I know how to look at things: systematically, multidimensionally and as a complete and balanced system.
I am very happy so many of you were able to join me in the ESR21 special journey through Russia’s past, present and future, beyond the obvious. Those who did, are richer for it!
In earlier episodes of ESR21 we have discussed various topics, ranging from presidential candidates ratings & Putin’s main rival, the ‘offshore communist’ Grudinin, to Russia’s new secret weapons & attempts to sabotage the election via Russian ex-spy poisoning in the UK.
The ESR21 CULMINATION PART 8 introduced you to Putin’s Big Vision for Russia and his 10-Year Plan.
Today I am posting part 9, and the wrap-up part 10 is coming on March 17! Its topic is a secret and I’ll reveal it tomorrow!
As always, refer to all of your ESR21 inks HERE! The entire content is exclusive and FREE only tomy Patreon followers!
Just letting you know that after working very hard for months, some time soon I may take a few days off.
But whatever you do, don’t go away!
As the Great Earth Shift gains momentum and a clash between super-powers intensifies, the world events are again accelerating, and much more earth-shattering changes are expected this year!
Therefore, I can’t be away for long. No worries, I will continue being your guide and wayshower through this time of the Great Earth Shift change!
Soon after Russian Election is over, we’ll be resuming our regular programming, including our Multidimentional, Earth Shift and Quantum Calibrations content, which many of you have come to love!
You know I love you all and I want to give you as much knowledge and info as I can!
I hope you all can join me in this continued journey of discovery and illumination!
LOTS OF HUGE NEW & ONGOING PLANS!
Stay tuned for MY MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENTS!
Why Putin runs as the only independent?
United Russia dillemma
Russian ‘Paris Hilton’ Ksenia Sobchak & pro-West neoliberal fiasco!
New Blood (Starikov/PVO) vs Old Guard (Zhirinovsky/LDPR, et al)!
Ksenia Sobchak, a Hillary / Paris Hilton hybrid, and the fiasco of pro-West neo-liberals
Ksenia Sobchak, in my definition is a cross between Hillary Clinton and Paris Hilton.
She is running as the candidate ‘against everyone.’ Not a very constructive position to begin with.
According to the poll, with which we started ESR 21, she gets about 1% approval. She was picked up and backed as the candidate by a small pro-West neoliberal party Grazhdanskaya Platforma – Civic Platform. This allowed her to get into the ballot easier.
In Russia, running from a party means you have to get only 300,000 signatures, while an independent candidate would have to get 1 million signatures.
In this election, Putin is the only independent. Why? See about that below!
KSENIA SOBCHAK and her platform:
Sobchak is a well-known and much hated in Russia TV personality, who used to participate in risky and frisky reality TV shows, such as Dom-2. At one point, she began styling herself as a serious political journalist.
Another shocking and notable thing is that she is the daughter of Putin’s ’90s mentor, Anatoly Sobchak, who was the powerful mayor of St. Petersburg. Putin was her godfather. As such, he still treats her with a mildness and respect she hardly deserves.
Sobchak has been an extremely vocal critic of Putin and everything Russian. Actually, she professes to be for ‘strong Russia,’ but it’s hard to find a bigger Russian-speaking Russia-hater. She is the pointperson for all pro-West Russophobic forces within Russia.
Her platform incorporates the following: 1. Russia is an aggressor, conducting two hybrid wars, in Ukraine and Syria. Russia must admit this, say ‘sorry’ and withdraw from both. 2. Russia must stop protecting Donbass and allow Kiev junta to take it over, with all the consequences for the population. 3. Russia must give Crimea back to Ukraine and apologize. 4. Russia must stop protecting Syria and ‘dictator’ Assad. 5. Russia must disarm and happily join the ‘European family.’ 6. Russia must stop being Russia and do as the US says.
In other words, she could well be a mouthpiece for NYT, BBC or CNN, and no one would know the difference.
This platform is announced by Sobckak every day, including in various presidential debates.
Because Ksenia Sobchak can’t get much following in Russia, she has infamously gone to the US, where many Russians live. She campaigned throughout the US, trying to convince Russians living there that they should vote for her. Her logic apparently was that those Russians living in the US will be pro-US and critical of Putin. We’ll see whether her calculation proves correct on the election day. I think not.
While in the US, Sobchak attempted to meet with Trump, but was refused.
But she was gladly given an interview by CNN, in which she stated that she agrees with the US and is ‘together with the US, being concerned about Russian aggression.’
She also was in the US in search of sponsors and financing, and she found them, of course – no surprise there.
I think that’s about all we need to know about Ksenia Sobchak and her followers; I believe it’s clear what she is. She presently also holds the dubious distinction of having the country’s highest negative rating. Not a dummy, with a large amount of negative charisma, she is an extremely confrontational and scandalous person. Sobchak literally attracts scandal like a lightning rod. You saw an example of how she operates in ESR 21 P3: Zhirinovsky vs Sobchak: Unlikely Brawl on Live Russian TV Between Presidential Candidates + Lada Ray Analysis!
Vladimir Zhirinovsky will be discussed below.
Ksenia Sobchak loves being interviewed by the Western media
OTHER PRO-WEST NEO-LIBERAL PARTIES
The rest of the pro-West neo-liberals aren’t even worth mentioning, but we will, for fairness’s sake. Essentially, there are 3 other parties, and their respective candidates, each of whom gets less than 1% of votes.
Grigory Yavlinsky, leader of Yabloko, 0.6% rating. Yabloko represents itself as the ‘intellectual’ party.
One of these parties is Yabloko (which in Russian means ‘Apple,’ the name also being an abbreviation of the party’s founders’ names). The party’s long-term leader and presidential candidate 2018 is Grigory Yavlinsky, who was in part responsible for the disastrous ’90s reforms. The catastrophic reforms of the neo-liberals in the ’90s are still remembered in Russia with anger, and his party has been catastrophically unpopular, but very loud. One of the things Yabloko professes is that Crimea belongs to Ukraine, not Russia. But because this position is very unpopular and loses him even more votes, Yavlinksy has been very subdued on that point during the debates.
In the same category, but a lot more physically violent and harmful, is Alexei Navalny, who has been more than once caught either doing something illegal or taking money from the US/UK. He has two suspended criminal sentences and therefore, cannot run for election (see me talk about him more in Part 10). Navalny’s support in Russia is also under 1%, but he gathers around him the loudest and most aggressive elements, who are always on the attack through social media. Their effort is coordinated through CIA and Western surrogates, including Kiev and the Baltics.
The Navalny supporters get paid for their shill/trolling activity, and they have been known to be very effective on the internet, spewing a lot of filth everywhere, creating misdirection and fake news. Yet, very little public support transpired out of all their internet efforts.
There is a clear trace of CIA and global financial elites behind Navalny, who don’t stop financing and training his people, hoping they’ll one day deliver, and create a new chaos in Russia.
Ksenia Sobchak, Navalny and Yabloko/Yavlinsky are a big part of the 5th column, agreeing on everything with the US says, while making bold accusations against Russia.
More reasonable and balanced, and in my opinion the most interesting of the bunch, is ‘Partia Rosta’ – The Growth Party.
The party leader and presidential candidate 2018 is Boris Titov. He gets only marginal 0.3% support. He promotes himself and his party as the ultimate defenders of the rights of business, whether big or small, private, public or state. The platform includes: Russian economy growth through better business climate, promotion and protection of all business, as well as the peaceful business and trade cooperation with other counties.
The platform is very focused and narrow, and it appears to ignore the full scope of geopolitical realities, always pushing ‘cooperation’ with the West. The result of this ‘see no evil, speak no evil’ la-la-land position is very small support.
This party works with Putin and the government, although has certain criticisms as well. Of all neo-liberal parties, it is the most reasonable and clearly, the only positive. It is also the only neo-liberal force in Russia that can boast of some practical achievements, such as trying to convince run-away ex-oligarchs in London to bring their assets back home in exchange for amnesty. Titov personally negotiated the deal in London.
Unlike other pro-West 5th column forces, the Growth Party isn’t known to promote ‘Crimea is Ukraine’ slogan. It seems much more patriotic than the rest. The Growth Party also seems to align with patriotic forces as to who robbed the country in the ’90s. However, it’s still not trusted, being considered the party of the oligarchs.
All in all, as we see, the pro-West neolibs in Russia are suffering a huge fiasco. Just two days to the election, and it’s pretty clear the most each of these parties can hope for is between 0.3% and 1%, if that.
The fatigue over the Old Guard
On pic above! The old guard: Gannady Zyuganov (KPRF), Sergey Mironov (Fair Russia), Vladimir Zhirinovsky (LDPR).
We discussed Zyuganov and his conundrum in previous article Putin’s Only Worthy Rival? ‘Offshore Communist’ Grudinin & Russian Communist Party Crisis.
Another old guard member, Sergey Mironov and Fair Russia have also been losing votes. Mironov announced that he would not be running this time and that instead, his party throws its full support behind Putin.
The next old guard representative, Vladimir Zhirinovsky (pic above), has too much of an ego not to run, despite his ripe age (read more about him in the previous post about his brawl with Sobchak). Incidentally, his clashes with Sobchak continued in the latest debates, and he even made her cry.
As an aside, it has to be noted that Ksenia Sobchak’s outrageous claims and fake news outbursts make all other candidates interrupt and argue with her during debates, which causes her to accuse all others of collusion and of ‘opposing her, instead of Putin, in this election.’ The real truth is that her scandalous and confrontational nature is such that she does rub everyone, even her fellow neo-liberals from the Growth Party and Yabloko, the wrong way.
Just like Sobchak, Zhirinovsky is very confrontational and flamboyant. But unlike Sobchak, he is patriotic and nationalistic, with big-time pro-imperial Russia flavor. He has a lot of energy and he does possess a universally recognized gift of the gab. He is considered a sort of Russian Trump, to whom he is close in personality. He is also considered a ‘geopolitical prophet’ in Russia.
Zhirinovsky very much supported Trump during campaign, calling him ‘our man,’ and predicting his win. He also persistently predicted Trump completely turning around Russian-US relations. Right on No. 1, wrong on No. 2.
See my own original Trump predictions (right on No. 1 and No. 2)!

Russian Presidential Election will take place on March 18, 2018. As election contenders were being announced in December 2017, we learned that at least 67 people decided to run for Russian president. Among these, at least two new faces are notable. As we approach the date, I plan to write extensively on the entire spread, Putin and his closest and most interesting competitors.
Today, I am giving you a sneak peek of who is who, plus the ratings for Putin and his nearest competitors so far. You’ll find the numbers quite telling, but keep in mind that the No. 2 (Pavel Grudinin) and No. 4 (Ksenia Sobchak) contenders are new and their popularity may grow as we approach March. Myself, I’d be curious to see what they can do with their growing popularity and how far they can take their platforms. The jury is still out.
I’ll also tell you that the No. 2, No. 3 (Vladimir Zhirinovsky) and No. 4 contenders do have interesting and legitimate things to say. It’s never a good idea to just throw out someone else’s serious ideas, if such ideas make sense. At the very minimum we learn something; at the maximum, we incorporate such ideas into the grand plan.
In my many years of observing Putin in action, I have found that this is something he is very good at.
SNEAK PEEK AND PREVIEW OF CHANCES
The Russian political old timers’ popularity (leader of right-wing LDPR Zhrininovsky, KPRF communists’ leader Zyuganov, Fair Russia’s Sergey Mironov) has dwindled to the point of Zyuganov and Mironov deciding not to run at all, while Zhirinovsky lost up to 1/2 of his previous rating.
Putin’s rating increased slightly.
The #2 contender Pavel Grudinin’s rating has shown positive dynamics and has grown substantially since one month ago, although his numbers are still very minor compared to Putin.
The new faces of the Russian presidential race, Pavel Grudinin and Ksenia Sobchak represent the opposite sides of the spectrum and are in fact very interesting and very telling. I will have separate posts about each of them and what they stand for, as I received a number of questions about both.
Minor oligarch Pavel Grudinin represents Communists and the unified Left Block (yes, you’ve heard me right!). TV personality Ksenia Sobchak represents pro-US, pro-West opposition, who believe that everything is wrong in Russia and with Russia.
Their stories are so fascinating that they deserve separate articles. Stay tuned for that!
Meanwhile, the results of the January 16, 2018 poll tell their own story. No comment — it’s rather self-explanatory!
APPROVAL RATINGS OF TOP RUSSIAN PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDERS 2018
Vladimir Putin 73.8%
Pavel Grudinin 7.2%
Vladimir Zhirinovsky 4.7%
Ksenya Sobchak 1%
Grigory Yavlinsky 0.6%
Boris Titov 0.3%
You get my drift, right?..
