How Crimea Was Transferred to Ukraine, Soviet Gold Standard and Khrushchev’s Folly

LADA’S FOREWORD

Dear readers,

Our friend Stanislav has generously shared his own, very thorough translation of a new Russian article concerning historic facts related to the 1954 illegal transfer of Crimea to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and some real Soviet documents of that era.

Both Stanislav and I are well familiar with the whole story, having grown up in those parts. We now live in different countries of the West, and because of that, we fully realize how confusing it may be for foreigners, especially for Westerners, to sift through all the propaganda and deliberate distortions you all are being fed when it comes to Russia, Ukraine, Crimea and Eurasia. I know how difficult it is for honest truth seekers to sift through an avalanche of lies and hoaxes. Some of these lies, sensationalist hoaxes and distortions are very sexy and tempting to believe in — if you don’t know the real truth.

I’ll tell you a secret about Stanislav and me. It wasn’t enough for us to grow up in Russia and then go on living in the West. We are two of a rare breed, who preserved our souls intact through all changes, trials and tribulations. We never got poisoned by bitterness, resentment or cynicism as we watched the USSR disintegrate, Russia plunge into the disaster of the 1990s, the once safe and pleasant streets we remembered as little children turn into war zones, and oligarchy take over. While living in the West, we also managed not to succumb to Western brainwashing, unlike some other emigrants. As we learned new things, discovered that the ‘king was really naked,’ found out the truth about global manipulations and hidden agendas, we grew wiser and savvier about the ways of the world. But we didn’t lose ourselves: we preserved our integrity, our spirit and mind intact; we kept our common sense, hope and optimism.

And it is for this reason, ladies and gentlemen, that you all will benefit tremendously from reading our blogs and watching videos we make or translate. We do it to help people. We don’t make money off any of this, except some small donations I get for my articles and Earth Shift Reports, which help to cover some of my expenses.

In the end of 2013 I began FuturisTrendcast in the name of helping people discover the real truth: all I wanted was to educate, illuminate the truth and show the way. It is for this same reason that Stanislav maintains his blog. Both Stanislav and I are here to help unearth those precious few kernels of truth that are being buried deep by those who seek to manipulate and keep you in the dark.

To my dismay, not only Western MSM, but even the Western-based ‘alternative media,’ is guilty of distortions, non-factual sensationalism and outright fantasies or lies. In the past week I received four emails from some of my most valued readers and supporters. They all wanted my opinion about publications on Putin and Russia. Articles in question were published in one large and popular alternative media publication, whose name I won’t say so not to give it additional promo. One article talked about ‘the six clones of Putin’ and another had something to do with not being sure whether ‘Russia was evil and to what degree.’

Perhaps because of this I keep to myself and my own work, collaborating only with those of whose knowledge, intentions and integrity I am sure. I replied that I do not read this publication and don’t recommend it to my readers — well, unless you want to live in a dark and hopeless fantasy world that is far from truth or reality.

On the other hand, if you want to co-create your reality, if you want your children (and if we are lucky, you too) to live in a better world — stick around FuturisTrendcast!

Please note that I’ve already addressed hoaxes, who creates them and why, and how alternative media is manipulated into spreading them (knowingly or unknowingly) in the following works:

The logic and process of a hoax creation explained fully in: ESR 1 RELOADED: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?

Article: How to Tell a Hoax from Targeted Info Dump (Navigating MSM and Alternative Media)

Interview: Lada Ray ~ Putin’s Disappearance and the New Silk Road ~ The Plane Truth 

In the midst of all the confusion it’s especially important and precious to be able to read honest translations of real historic documents. Many thanks to Stanislav for his work and generous sharing!

Those who follow FT know our friend Stanislav as Nemo, who often leaves very informative comments under my articles. He usually includes links to his own posts or to videos/articles elsewhere, which help understand what’s really going on around Russia, EU and Eurasia. Please do check out the comment section for his comments. Incidentally, Stanislav promises us other treats soon: ‘I am finishing translating a documentary film, and have an interesting translation of an article in the works… All in the name of education.’ I’ll either post links to his new translations, or re-post them on FT.

As to my own work, just by way of keeping you all posted:

I am finishing up the expanded version of EARTH SHIFT REPORT 2 reloaded: UKRAINE – TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE. It includes the original ESR2 Ukraine: True History, plus the best of my materials and classic predictions from 2014. I am adding a new, long article about the latest developments, plus a much expanded analysis and predictions about Ukraine’s prospects. My 2014 predictions are beginning to shape up now and I’ll explain how. I hope to finish it this weekend and release ESR2 reloaded no later than Monday.

I am also working on my new ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT. I’m glad I’ve waited a bit. My newest intel and inside info is simply smashing! ESR8 will come out around February 22. Don’t miss!

I want to time these two reports to the second anniversary of the 2/22/2014 Kiev coup that unseated Yanukovich and plunged the country into war and devastation. ESR9: CRIMEAN AGENDA (The battle for Crimean has only begun!)  is to follow, and hopefully I can time it to the second anniversary of the Crimean Referendum that returned the peninsula to native shores.

Since these two seminal events took place in 2014, the Earth Shift has accelerated. Geopolitical situation in the Russian World, Middle East, EU and worldwide has changed so dramatically that looking back we may honestly say we now live in a different reality. But, as I’ve pointed out, the battle for Crimea, the battle for Eurasia and the battle for our world’s common future is only beginning! My reports will help you make sense of everything that is going on; they will reveal the truths that I GUARANTEE you would never know otherwise, since they are being hidden from you, or distorted!

More exciting news! I’ve been asked to do a couple of interviews with some very nice people. These should come out some time in March. Details soon!

 

In conclusion, and I hope Stanislav doesn’t mind my speaking on his behalf:

Our only goal is to help you see and understand the truth, as well as to right the historic wrongs. We don’t ask for much in return.

To help us know that our work is not in vain, we only ask this:

STANISLAV’S ARTICLE

Who and How Transferred Crimea into Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1952-1954

See original article

Below is my translation of a very informative article by Mikhail Smirnov, published inSvobodnaja Mysl’ (Free Thought).

It is worth noting, that when the author points out the Russian roots in Crimea, he is most probably referring to the Scythians, who are just the same people as Rus, but going under a different name. See my summary of the documentary Yes, Scythians Are Us.

When reading the text below, note one historic peculiarity of USSR of that time. While 14 republics were almost always denoted by their national name – e.g Ukrainian SSR (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic) – there was one exception. In USSR no one spoke of Russia, to the extent that the existence of Russia as a republic was largely forgotten. Instead the acronym RSFSR was always in use (decoded as Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic).

At the end of this post, after the main article, I present my translation of the closing speech by K.E Voroshilov from the stenography of the session of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR from the 19th of February 1954, which is an important historical evidence, setting the stage for the transfer and for the peninsular and the expectation connected to the act.


While it can be argued that it was not Khrushchev who made the decision on the transfer of Crimea, his rabid anti-Stalinism and voluntarism certainly became the propelling power behind this whole undertaking. It seems, there were no objective reasons for this decision.

In the history of the presence of Crimea within modern Ukraine, which began with the official transfer of the Crimean region of the RSFSR to the Ukrainian SSR in 1954 and is associated with the name N.S.Khrushchev, you can set apart the history of decision-making on behalf of Crimea, from hatching of the idea to the party-bureaucratic mechanism of its implementation.

At the time of its transfer into the Ukrainian SSR in 1954, Crimea had the status of the region within the RSFSR. From 1921 to 1945 it was a multi-national autonomy within the Russian Federation – the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (KrASSR) with the official languages ​​of Russian and Tatar, and in places of compact settlement – also German and Hebrew. After the well-known dramatic events during the War, the administrative status of Crimea was downgraded: Crimean Autonomy was eliminated by converting it into the Crimean region, officially – due to changes in the ethnic composition of the population of Crimea. Crimean Autonomy was restored in 1991 as part of the Ukrainian SSR, and in 1992 it was renamed into the Republic of Crimea.

In the public mind there is a long-established stereotype, which firmly connects the transfer of the Crimean region of the RSFSR into the Ukrainian SSR with the name of N.S. Khrushchev. By and large it is justified, but, after all, a few comments clarifying and enriching the picture of the event will be reasonably useful.

According to the memoirs of the contemporaries of the events, the idea of ​​the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine began to ripen in Khrushchev’s mind ever since the time, when he in 1944-1947 headed the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR, and at the same time was the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Ukrainian SSR. The year was 1944, the war was still going on. The boss off the USSR, I.V. Stalin, demanded that Khrushchev sent from the Ukrainian SSR to the neighbouring republic 100 thousand people – they were supposed to help with the rebuilding of the Russian Federation. But the position of Ukraine itself was not less, but even more severe, as during the Great Patriotic War almost the whole of its territory saw devastating military operations, and almost all of it has been exposed to enemy occupation. Nikita Khrushchev was furious. “Ukraine itself is destroyed, and more is taken from us” – he raged. (Head of the Soviet trade unions, Lavrentij Pogrebnoy, was a witness to Khrushchev’s indignation in 1944. A few years later, he told one of the Soviet writers about the events.)

Khrushchev could not directly oppose Stalin’s orders. So perhaps even then, or a little later, he hatched the idea that a decent compensation for this extra effort (and even, maybe for Starvation [translator’s note: Gologomor, for the real history surrounding it, I’d recommend reading the article The Real Truth About USSR: Golodomor and Collectivization in Ukraine]), could become a significant territorial gain of Ukraine within the USSR: of course, at the expense of the beneficiary of the “Ukrainian brotherly” assistance – the Russian Federation, which was to boot the most rich territory-wise. Even a cursory glance at the map of the Soviet Union was enough to see the most likely scenario for this: geographically isolated from the rest of the territory of the RSFSR, but located in the vicinity of the Ukrainian SSR and adjacent to it, is the Crimean peninsula. And being by nature a voluntarist, he vowed that he will get Crimea, whatever it takes.

But Khrushchev began the direct implementation of his idea later, in the first half of the 50s, or more precisely – starting from 1952, when the signs of limitations in functional capacity of Stalin became more and more obvious for the party leadership. (Stalin announced that he was going to retire at the October Central Committee plenum of 1952, which was held after the completion of the XIX Congress of the CPSU. But already starting from February 1951, three Politburo members (G.M. Malenkov, L.P. Beria, N.A. Bulganin) were given the right to sign various documents on behalf of Stalin, as, according to Molotov, due to the decrease in performance he did not sign many government documents for a prolonged period of time.) The real opportunity opened up only in connection with the death of Stalin. But it is possible that another significant cause for activation of Khrushchev on this subject at that time was also the activity of a supporter of Stalin’s policy in regard to the Crimea, which brought to the fore the ideas that went counter to Khrushchev’s.

According to unconfirmed records, in October 1952, the first secretary of the Crimean regional party (in 1949-1954) P.I. Titov, while being a delegate of the XIX Party Congress, addressed personally to Stalin with a written offer to rename the Crimean region into Tauridia. In his opinion, it would be entirely consistent with the history of the region, starting from the XVIII century. In particular, as one of the arguments, Titov appealed to the forgotten Soviet Republic of Tauridia. He believed that for the Crimean region of the RSFSR “it’s high time to restore its Russian, Rus name”.

Titov’s proposal was not priorly discussed in the Crimean Regional Party Committee and was not approved by them. But we know that the second person in the region – D.S. Polanski (in 1952-1954 the chairman of the executive committee of the Crimean Regional Council) – objected to this initiative. On the other hand he supported the transfer of Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR. Twenty years later, the nomenclature Party member G.V. Myasnikov, while at that time the second secretary of the Moscow city committee of the Komsomol remembered Polyansky thus: “I remember how he went up the hill. He met Khrushchev and Titov in the Crimea. An idea of ​​the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine was brought up. Titov rejected the idea right away, while Polyansky said it was “brilliant”. The next day they gathered the plenum of the Crimean Regional Committee, Titov was driven out, while Poljansky became the first secretary of the regional committee.”

But it is more likely that this “cleansing out” of Titov took place more gradually, after the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of USSR, N.S. Khrushchev visited the Crimea in October 1953. Khrushchev’s son-in-law, Adjoubei Alex, who accompanied him on his trip around the country, recalled that when Khrushchev came to the Crimea at that time, he was shocked by how disastrous was the situation in the region and how great was the discontent by this among the local residents. At the same time, however, Khrushchev remained true to himself, and when he saw at the local airport some aircraft, he immediately ordered to fly it over to Kiev. And then, a few hours later, he already talked, over a supper, with the local party leaders about the transfer of Crimea and resettlement of Ukrainians into Crimea. Most likely, it was at this moment that an open dispute ensued between him and Titov. According to Titov’s deputy, L.G. Mezentsev, the head of the Crimea was called in to Moscow in mid-January of 1954 to inform him of preparation of a decision on the transfer of the region. He protested, for which on the 16th of January he was replaced with a Ukrainian Dmitry Polyansky. Thus, based on the totality of the memories of witnesses, it can be argued that P.I. Titov strongly objected to Khrushchev regarding the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine, and he had constant clashes with the Secretary of the Central Committee on this issue, which resulted in this imperious and prudent owner of the Crimean region being finally deposed to the rank of Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the RSFSR. In general, according to the researchers, Khrushchev initiated a rather limited number of people into his intentions with respect to Crimea. Among them – the first secretary (since June 1953) of the Communist Party of Ukraine A.I. Kirichenko, who, at the time, was also a candidate member of the Presidium of the Central Committee of CPSU and was in good standing with Khrushchev.

But Stalin, who was by that time ill, delayed an official response to Titov. According to the memoirs of some of Titov’s colleagues, in the spring of 1953 and later he, nevertheless, referred to a brief personal answer from Stalin, which was sent personally to him in late January 1953, saying that his proposal was “interesting and perhaps correct. This question can be discussed and resolved.” In the middle of November of 1953 Titov told about this opinion of Stalin to Khrushchev and Polyansky, when the principal decision on the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine had in fact already been made.

An indirect confirmation of the fact that Stalin was quite seriously considering Titov’s proposals, can be the process of renaming of the Crimean Tatar names into Russian ones, which began from the mid-1940s and which was initiated by Stalin himself after the deportation of the Tatar population from there. There are many sources describing this. For example, a comprehensive project on renaming in Crimea was dated with the 25th of September 1948, when the Crimean Regional Committee passed the decree “On renaming of settlements, streets, certain types of work, and other Tatar designations”. However, it was not planned to rename Crimea itself. But even before that, in the 1944-1946, 11 out of 26 Crimean regional centres were renamed (for example, the Ak-Mechetsky region into Chernomorskij, Larindorfsky into Pervomaisky) as well as 327 villages. In the period from 1948 to 1953, it was planned to rename some towns. The documents recorded in particular that Djankoi was going to become either Uzlovo, Severnyj or Verhnekrymsk, Saki turning into Ozernoje, and they wanted to call Bakhchisaray – “Pushkin”. Kerch was supposed to be given the name of “Korchev”, known from the old-Russian chronicles. In general, during 1947-1953 new – Russian – names were given to 1062 settlements and nearly 1300 natural object, mostly replacing Tatar ones. It is obvious that in the context of this process, also Titov’s proposal to change the name of the Crimea looked quite logical. However, the renaming slowed down when the turn of the cities came. And after Stalin’s death, the plan to rename the Crimean cities was abandoned altogether.

Thus, we can see that the project of the inclusion of Crimea into Ukraine was preceded by a project of strengthening of Russian presence in Crimea, and in 1952-1953, as a logical completion of the latter, there was also a project, which remained on the level of an idea, of re-renaming the Crimean region into Tauridian.

(An aside from the translator: Crimean Tatars are more likely Mongolians, the descendants of the Golden Horde of the Mongolian Khan Baty, who raided and occupied the peninsula in the 14th century. The name given to the peninsular by them was “Kyrim”, meaning “trench”. Before the Mongol occupation the peninsular had the Greek name of “Tauridia”. What the endemic population, Scythians, called their land back then is lost.)

As is known, the Russian presence in Crimea has been recorded since ancient chronicled times. Of particular interest to us – in the light of the events of the XX century that we discuss here – is “Tmutarakan” sub-plot of this presence. The original antique city of Panticapaeum, which in the era of the Khazarian Khaganate (translator note: For a well-researched foray into the history of Khazarian Kaganate, I would recommend reading Lada Ray’s Earth Shift Report 6: UKRAINE – NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE?) of the VIII century got the name of Karsha or Charsha, which in Turkic means “market” or “bazaar”, is mentioned in the old-Russian historical records of the events of the X century under the Slavinised name of Krchev (Korchev) [Кърчевъ]. In the tenth century, Tmutarakan principality – part of the Ancient (Kievan) Rus – takes root on the Crimean and the Caucasian coasts of the Kerch Strait. Korchev was closely associated with the capital of the principality – Tmutarakan, while the Eastern geographers of that time called the Kerch Strait for the Russian River.

And so it was in Kerch that, after a long period of Ottoman history in Crimea, Russia once again establishes on the peninsula, several years before its full incorporation into the Russian Empire. In 1771 Russian troops took Kerch and neighbouring fortress Yeni-Kale. By the Kuchuk-Karnadzhiyskomu peace treaty between the Russian and Ottoman empires, which ended Russian-Turkish war of 1768-1774, this city with its fortress was the first of all the Crimea to become part of the Russian Empire, while, in accordance with that agreement, the Crimean Khanate as a whole then became independence from the Ottoman Empire, with the exception of the influence in the questions of religion. The manifesto of Catherine II was issued on the 8th of April 1783 and decreed the accession of Crimea, Taman and Kuban into the Russian Empire. By the decree of the 2nd of February 1784 Tauridian region (oblast) was established, covering some of the continental land. Later it was transformed into a province (county).

It is quite possible that the role of Kerch, and the Kerch Peninsula as a whole, in the Russian development on Crimea was the foundation for another P.I. Titov’s proposal in November 1953, which he already addressed to Polyansky and Khrushchev, and reiterated in January 1954. It pertained to the inclusion of this region (ie. Eastern Crimea) with the status of the “Kerch region” into the composition of RSFSR. Already then Titov had a well-founded belief that it was inadvisable for RSFSR “to vacate” Crimea, and, thanks to the newly formed region, the strategically important Kerch (Azov-Black Sea) Strait – “Russian River” – would still be a part of RSFSR. Titiov’s “Kerch” was outright rejected by Khrushchev followers, so much so, that the entire water area of ​​the Kerch Strait in the subsequent transfer of the Crimea ended up being assigned to the Ukrainian SSR.

The question of what was the nature of the whole of Crimean autonomy – national or territorial – is also of crucial importance. Lenin’s Sovnarkom initially created both types of autonomies, but over time only the national ones were left. The Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, in this regard, had become a unique autonomous construct, which retained its territorial nature. According to the All-Union census of 1939, Russians comprised 49.6% of the Crimean population, Crimean Tatars – 19.4%, Ukrainians – 13.7%, Jews – 5.8%, Germans – 4.6%. But as the total population during the war declined sharply, and its ethnic composition underwent fundamental changes, Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was transformed into the Crimean region (oblast) on the 30th of June 1945. Unlike most other autonomous regions, where there was the predominance of the indigenous population, the Crimean Autonomous Republic was not Tatar from the very beginning of its establishment. Moreover, 2/3 of the population of the Crimea at the time was Russian, and only one-third consisted of the peoples who had settled here before the Russians and made up the indigenous population of the peninsula. (Translator note: in the bird’s eye historic perspective, Russians are the indigenous population of the peninsula, who were driven from Crimea, but later returned.) At the same time, flirting with Kemalist Turkey, the Soviet leadership traditionally appointed mostly men of Tatar origin to the leading positions in the republic. This created a false impression that the Crimean autonomy was, like all the other, the national one – Crimean Tatar. But as it is known, in accordance with the provisions of the National Defence Commission of 11th of May and the 2nd of June 1944, of all Tatars of all ages (about 180 thousand people) were deported from Crimea to Kazakhstan. (Translator note: the exception was given to mixed-marriage families, where a Tatar woman was married to a Russian.)

All of the above sheds some light on the political context in which Khrushchev’s fateful for the history of the Crimea voluntarist decision was conceived and prepared. But it is equally important to take into account the details of the mechanism of this decision at the state level.

The fact is that N.S. Khrushchev became the first person in the USSR leadership only in 1955. While immediately after the death of Stalin (at the time of the death he held the post of the chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers), the head of government and a key figure in the leadership of the USSR was G.M. Malenkov. By the end of Stalin’s life, Malenkov was one of the main contenders for the post of supreme leader of the country, and immediately after his death, inherited the post of the chairman of the Council of Ministers. I.V. Stalin died on the 5th of March 1953, and at that time, in the beginning of the 1950s, this was the main post, while the position of the General Secretary of the CPSU was abolished, since, according to the late Stalinist concept of the governance structure, the Communist Party should no longer play a leading role in governing of the country.

M.S. Voslensky in his famous book “The Nomenclature” writes:

In the days after the death of Stalin in March 1953, it was customary to conclude speeches at the memorial meetings in the following typical ending: “Eternal glory to the Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, Secretary of the CPSU I.V. Stalin! Long live Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee G.M. Malenkov!”

As it becomes clear from these titles, according to a new tradition established by Stalin, the post of the President of the Council of Ministers of USSR was the most important positions in contemporary system of power, and that it was inherited by Malenkov. And although the decision from March the 5th 1953 of the joint meeting of the Plenum of the Central Committee, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet and the USSR Council of Ministers abolished the Bureau of the Presidium of the Central Committee of CPSU, and on the 14th of March 1953 the political opponents of Malenkov managed to deprive him of his post of a Secretary of the CPSU (ie, at the time, one of the many secretaries of the Central Committee), in 1953-55 he was still the Chairman of the USSR, and presiding over the meetings of the Presidium of the Central Committee of CPSU (as Politburo of the Central Committee of CPSU was called at the time). And thus, according to the then semi-official representations of the structure of power in the USSR, and, to an even greater extent, due to the political practice established under Stalin’s influence, he was the real leader of the country. It was during the period of his leadership of the country, that the transfer of the Crimean region into the Ukrainian SSR actually took place.

And if you take the viewpoint of those, who do not recognize that the decisions in the USSR were taken collectively, but absolutely want to assign personal responsibility for any decision to one of the “leaders”, then we must blame Malenkov, and not Khrushchev for the transfer of the Crimean region. By the beginning of 1954, when the Crimea was handed over, Khrushchev was not yet a sufficiently influential figure so as to define such major decisions. He was one of the secretaries of the Central Committee, responsible for the work of the entire Secretariat (on September the 7th 1953 he was elected 1st secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU), he was a member of the Presidium of the Central Committee, and was a member of a group, warring with the group of Malenkov. The very same Voslensky in his book indicates that Malenkov tried his best to belittle the role of the Central Committee Secretariat, and it was under him that they began to speak of the secretariat as of a purely technical body. Therefore, it is logical to assume that any significant initiatives emanating from Khrushchev, would not get the support of Malenkov.

If, however, we are be absolutely exact, then from a purely formal point of view, the transfer of Crimea was initiated by a collective body – the Presidium of the CPSU Central Committee, which meetings at that time were chaired by Malenkov. This can be seen from documents published in “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” (Federal Edition #3409 of the 19th of February 2004):

Secretary of the CPSU Khrushchev
АЛРФ.Ф.З.Оп.10.Д.65Л1,4-б Подлинник (original)

However, having the real distribution of power in the USSR leadership elite in favour of the government agencies – as a testament from Stalin, outwardly the power system in the country continued working in a mode, familiar to the people, that is, in such a way, that the decisions of the Central Committee of the CPSU were governing in relation the decisions of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, which was only a “law publishing” body, which gave the appearance of democracy to decisions, which had actually been taken in the Central Committee. Thus, the Council of Ministers, headed by Malenkov, was sidelined on the decision of the Crimea. This decision was taken by the Presidium of the CPSU Central Committee, a meeting presided by Malenkov.

Again, from a purely formal point of view, N.S. Khruschev’s responsibility for this decision consisted only in the fact that he, like everyone else, voted “for” and in addition to this, as the 1st Secretary of the Central Committee heading the work of the Secretariat of the Central Committee, put his signature, just formally certifying the protocol. In the same way as in the Brezhnev period Giorgadze put his signature after Brezhnev’s signature. But analysis of the alignment of the centres of power in the power system of that time shows that the decision of the Presidium chaired by the economic planner Malenkov could be a bargaining chip (albeit a pretty small one) in the nomenclature and political struggle of his supporters with the group of Khrushchev – the highest at that time party functionary. In any case, with that set up, Malenkov was a guarantor that, as a result of this decision, there would be no major changes in the Crimea’s situation and, above all, in the nature of economic relations of the Crimean region within the control system of the USSR.

From the extract from the protocol N49, cited above, it is clear at the same meeting the draft of the Decree of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on the transfer of Crimea was approved, which after a multi-stage procedure, would in the end be “rubber-stamped” by the Supreme Council. The Supreme Soviet of the USSR rubber-stamped the decree draft at its meeting of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of February the 19th 1954. Here is the text of the decree:

The stenography of meeting can be consulted here. (Translator note: I will translate the closing speech of Voroshilov, which gives additional context to the political and cultural background, as well as assumed conditions, of the transfer.)

DECREE
Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR
On the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the RSFSR into the composition the Ukrainian SSR

“Given the commonality of the economy, the proximity and close economic and cultural ties between the Crimean region and the Ukrainian SSR, the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics RESOLVES:

Approve the joint submission of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR and the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR on the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic into the composition of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.”

Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR K.VOROSHILOV
Secretary of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR N.PEGOV
Moscow, The Kremlin, February 19, 1954.

And already on the 26th of April 1954 the Supreme Soviet of the USSR by the Law “On the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of RSFSR in the composition of the Ukrainian SSR” approved the decree of its Presidium and made the appropriate changes to Articles 22 and 23 of the Constitution of the USSR.

Incidentally, we must note that the issue of transfer of the Crimea went in the agenda of the meeting of the Presidium of the CC CPSU as item XI or XL (it is not very clear from the publication of the document). In any case, this issue was not perceived as being particularly important. It is possible that this attitude has led to a certain constitutional legislative negligence in the design of the entire transfer procedure. The fact is, under Article 18 of the Constitution of USSR, which was in effect by 1954, the territory of a republic could not be altered without its consent. Such consent was given by both Republics in the form of a Ruling of the Presidium of the Supreme Councils of the two Republics. However, Article 33 of the Constitution of the RSFSR, which contained a list of the authorities given to the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet, there is no authority to change the boundaries of the RSFSR. Not to mention the fact that out of the 27 members of the meeting of the 5th of February 1954, during which the issue was addressed, only 15 were present.

Further considering the nature of the relationship of the then leadership of the USSR to the “Crimean issue”, one should also note the following. For example, in the relevant documents of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet it was claimed both wisely and pompously, “that the transfer of Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR, taking into account the commonality of their economies, the proximity and close economic and cultural ties, is fully appropriate and is a testament to the boundless trust of the Russian people in the Ukrainian people…” This is how the “Ukrainians” at the helm thought back then. At the same time, the event itself passed completely unnoticed. It was not widely presented by the official propaganda to the Soviet and foreign public as another triumph of the party reason and higher justice. Probably for this reason, the Western press said nothing about this. While in the Soviet publications one can only find a couple of paragraphs about the symbolic meaning of this act in the context of the 300th anniversary of the “reunification” of Ukraine and Russia. However, the celebrations that took place in late May 1954 were generally devoted only to the anniversary. And even in the festive speech of Khrushchev, not a word was said about the Crimea. The absence of any indication to the transfer of Crimea in the Soviet sources of the time leads to some extent to a probable assumption, that the leaders of the Soviet Union intended to create in the perception of the peoples of the Soviet Union the idea, that the presence of the Crimea as part of Ukraine was a self-evident fact, and the decision to transfer the peninsula was represented as something long-overdue and almost as correction of a certain historical misunderstanding. But it is also quite possible that there was a feeling of voluntary overeagerness, and that there was no complete confidence that the decision, taken completely privately and without extensive discussion between the peoples of the two largest of the Soviet republics, would not cause public rejection. (Translator’s note: It did, at the “kitchen talk” level, much of which I heard first-hand, while spending many a summer of my youth in Crimea.)

N.S. Khruschev made a considerable progress towards senior management position of the country only in 1955 as a result of the nomenclature struggle for the removal of Malenkov from power. In 1955, Malenkov was dismissed from the post of Chairman of the USSR, and on the 29th of June 1957 he was removed from the Presidium of the CC CPSU. It is not known when exactly he ceased to be “presiding” at the Presidium meeting, but most likely in the very same 1955.

Since that time, that is, from the time when N.S. Khruschev, as the 1st Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee and member of the Presidium of the Central Committee, began to gradually strengthen his position as the sole leader of the Communist Party, we can say that the party organs as a whole began to regain the lead in the country’s leadership. However, until 1958 the high status and independence of the state and economic apparatus inherited from the Stalinist era remained. Chairman of the USSR from 1955 to 1958 was N.A. Bulganin, who previously, just like Malenkov, was one of the Vice-Chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers of Stalin. It was only in 1958 that Bulganin was dismissed, and his position was also taken by N.S. Khruschev while still holding the post of the First Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee. The defeat of the group of Bulganin, Malenkov, Kaganovich, Molotov and Shepilov occurred in June 1957 when at first during the meeting of the Presidium (Politburo) of the Central Committee of the CPSU by a majority vote, it was decided to abolish the post of the 1st Secretary of the CPSU and to appoint Khrushchev Minister of Agriculture, and then during an urgently convened plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, as a result of the dramatically unfolding events and with Zhukov’s help, Khrushchev managed to turn the situation to his advantage, and called Bulganin/Malenkov’s group for “anti-party”. Only after 1958 can N.S. Khurshev be held solely responsible for the supreme power decisions in the country. The Crimean region was transferred to Ukraine at the beginning of 1954, while the opinion about the deciding role that Khrushchev played in it, was formed only later with the help of the official propaganda.

Soviet newspapers, like mirrors, reflected the change in the ratio of different branches of power in the USSR. The newspaper “Pravda” of the 21st of December 1955 in its report on the national meeting of the top performers of agriculture in Tashkent, said: “spacious auditorium of the theatre named after Alisher Navoi was filled to capacity. 11 am. Loud and prolonged applause greeted the appearance at the meeting the Chairman of the presidium of the USSR Council of Ministers N. Bulganin and First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, N.S. Khrushchev. Places on the podium are occupied by the first secretary of Central Committee of the Communist Party: Uzbekistan – A.I. Niyazov, Kazakhstan – LI Brezhnev, Tajikistan – BG Gafurov, Chairman of the Council of Ministers: Uzbek SSR – N.A. Mukhitdinov, Tajik SSR – T. Uldzhabaev, Turkmen SSR – B. Ovezov, Kirghiz SSR – A. Suerkulov, Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Uzbek SSR Sh.R. Rashidov.” Here, the Chairman of the USSR Council is still mentioned in the first place, while the first secretary of the Communist Party – in the second, as a figure of lesser importance.

But already in 1960, at the height of Khrushchev’s personality cult, there is a dominating and familiar us from the days of Stagnation formula, where the Central Committee of the Communist Party is mentioned in the first place: “The workers of agriculture of the Penza region report to the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Soviet Government and personally to Comrade N.S. Khrushchev that, realizing the historical decision of the XXI Congress of the CPSU, collective and state farms, overcoming the difficulties created in the current year due to adverse weather conditions, have grown a good harvest, and completed the plan to sell grain to the state ahead of schedule – on August the 9th – using 20 working days.” (“Pravda” of the 12th of August 1960).

There are some important considerations at the end of this brief historical sketch of this dramatic episode in the history of Russia. In that harsh time P.I. Titov became the forerunner of the modern Communist Party of the Russian Federation in that part of its activity, which is directed today to protect the all-Russian interests. It is a pity that his name have not become a symbol of the 23-year-long modern struggle for liberation of the Russian-speaking people of the Crimea against the Ukrinising occupants. In light of the events of the modern Russian history, that person is worthy of his memory being perpetuated at least by a commemorative plaque in Simferopol, and at least a mention of him in the future textbooks of the history of the Fatherland as a Russian citizen, who was not afraid to go against the voluntarist projects of omnipotent Russian Ukrainophile Khrushchev. The country and the people need to know their heroes, and not only the negative ones.


Below is a translation of the closing speech by K.E Voroshilov from the stenography of the session of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR from the 19th of February 1954. As the commentary note at the top of that site says, “The Communist regime held no referendum or any opinion poll among the Crimeans regarding their transfer into the Ukrainian SSR”. All highlighting in the translation is mine.

Comrades, the decision of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on the joint proposal of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet and the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Ukrainian SSR regarding the transfer of the Crimean region from the composition of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic into the composition of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic is a testament to further strengthening of the unity and indestructible friendship of the Russian and Ukrainian peoples within the great powerful fraternal family of the peoples of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This significant act of great national importance once again confirms that the relationship between sovereign allied socialist republics in the USSR is based on genuine equality and a real understanding and respect for mutual interests, aimed at the prosperity of all of the Union republics.

In history, there is no – and can not be – other such relation between States. In the past, especially under capitalism, at the very root of relations between states there was an aspiration for territorial conquest, the pursuit of strong states profiteering at the expense of territories of weaker countries. Only within the conditions, created by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics may there be such a fair resolution of all issues between Union Republics, decisions based on economic feasibility and sensibility, full of mutual friendship and fraternal co-operation of their peoples. The transfer of the Crimean region of the RSFSR into the Ukrainian SSR is in the interest of the Russian and Ukrainian peoples, and meets the national interests of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The Crimean region, due to its historical development, due to its territorial and economic status, is important for the whole of the Soviet state. And in the distant and recent past enemies have repeatedly tried to take away the Crimean peninsula from Russia, use it to plunder and ruin Russian and Ukrainian lands, establish a base there for attacks on Russia and Ukraine. However the Russian and Ukrainian peoples had more than once, in their common struggle, severely beaten the arrogant invaders and thrown them out of the borders of Ukraine and Crimea. Ukraine and Crimea are closely linked by common economic interests – this has already been eloquently stated both by the presenters and by comrade speakers. Cultural relations between Crimea and Ukraine in particular have increased and deepened. The transfer of the Crimean region into the Ukrainian SSR will undoubtedly further strengthen the traditional ties.

Comrades, this friendly act takes place in the days when the Soviet people solemnly celebrate the remarkable historical date of the 300th anniversary of the reunification of Russia and Ukraine. This is a great traditional celebration not only of the Ukrainian people, but also for all the peoples of the USSR. Friendship of peoples – one of the foundations of our great multinational Soviet state, the source of its invincible might, of its prosperity and power. We know and rejoice that the Russian, Ukrainian and other peoples of our vast country, will also in the future continue to develop and strengthen their brotherly friendship. Let our great Motherland – the fraternal Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – develop and grow stronger!

Lada’s Post Scriptum

Soviet Gold Standard , Khrushchev’s folly and how Stalin’s death kicked off the process of weakening of the USSR

While the responsibility for the transfer of Crimea lies upon a number of people, it is Khrushchev who is remembered by history as the one responsible. The logic of the transfer on the surface was to re-confirm the close union of the two branches of one culture, one nation and one Russian World: Russians and Ukrainians. What after the formation of the USSR in 1922 came to be referred to as ‘Ukrainians’ was in fact a composite of Zaporozhie Cossacks (such as my mother’s family), Malorossians (central Ukraine, incl. Kiev), Novorossians (now eastern Ukraine, including Donbass, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov, aka, Slobozhanshchina), South Russians (Black Sea coast, including Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson), and later (western Ukraine’s) Rusins.

In the defense of those who made that decision it can be said that the transfer was made in the context of Ukraine being a forever integral part of the USSR, and an inseparable part of Russia. It never occurred to any of these men that in the year 1991 the USSR could simply fall apart.

However, the responsibility still lies with those who failed to take into account the future risks.

In the huge power vacuum that came to be after Stalin’s death, the power struggle between two factions began. Malenkov, who seems to be made responsible by the author of the article, was a clown — a transitional figure. No one really took him seriously and he didn’t wield real power. This was obviously before my time, but I recall my parents’ stories, who were in the know regarding the Soviet political spectrum. The transitional figure of Malenkov was necessary while the real power struggle took place behind the scenes. He was sidelined as soon as Ukrainian (Khrushchev’s) camp was able to get the upper hand over the Georgian (Beria’s) camp.

Beria/Georgian/Velikorussian (aka, ‘the Great Russian’) camp was against such transfer and in favor of Crimea being fortified as a part of Russia, as proposed by Titov in the article. Therefore, only the opposite Ukrainian camp could have pushed through the transfer. Consequently, Khrushchev’s role in the Crimean and other events of the early 1950s cannot be underestimated. It is, in fact, exactly as history remembers it!

To the possible reasons for Khrushchev’s behavior mentioned in the article, I want to add that he was rabidly anti-Stalin for more reasons than described. As the author says, he disliked the idea of having to lend Ukrainian workers for the war reconstruction efforts, and held a grudge regarding golodomor (which, per some evidence, he contributed to, never admitting his responsibility).

Yet, there were some infinitely more personal reasons for his resentment.

I am not inclined to bash Khrushchev to the degree as to completely discredit him. I think there were times he acted correctly, and if he lacked in real intelligence and foresight, he seemed to have enough peasant street smarts to get on top. That said, he appears to have been a man of jealousy and capable of holding a grudge for a long time. He also appears to have been a man whose personal demons often took the best of him, and who could sacrifice the interests of his country for his own whim. All the above are absolutely terrible qualities for a leader of a superpower. This is why Khrushchev failed to survive in his post for long (see video link below for more on that).

The story I was told is this: Khrushchev’s son had been arrested repeatedly for drunk driving and other public violations, but he was able to bury most of the criminal charges. But then, his son killed someone in a drunk driving incident, namely a war hero who just survived the brutal WWII. The indignation was wide-spread, the young man faced a long sentence and Khrushchev was unable to bury the case. He came to Stalin asking him for his son’s pardon. Stalin refused, saying he had to pay for his crime.

That incident set in motion a fatal chain of events. It set the stage for the angry and bitter Khrushchev’s later participation in the elimination of Stalin and creation of the world-wide anti-Stalin campaign, which in turn cost USSR valuable allies, such as Albania, with its Mediterranean ports, as well as China. (The best source for some good info related to Stalin, his actions, his death and Khrushchev’s role, in my view, is Nikolai Starikov and his book ‘Stalin.’)

In his urge to undo everything that reminded him of Stalin, Khrushchev also eliminated the one thing that kept USSR fully independent of the Western financial system: Soviet gold standard – the alternative system that made USSR impenetrable to financial manipulation. It was for this reason that when the inflation hit the West, in the USSR prices continued going down, while the country was actually experiencing tremendous post-war boom!

Khrushchev agreed to trade internationally in dollars, which destroyed the carefully built system and eventually weakened the USSR’s global bargaining positions, leading to future loss of reputation, clout and eventual disintegration. That act by Khrushchev, together with the Central Committee of the Communist Party, continued later by Brezhnev (perhaps because he was ill-advised, or because it was simply too late to turn back), set the stage for the relentless takeover of the world by the dollar, and later, petrodollar. When the USSR simply surrendered its positions, there was no financial alternative or counterweight left. The result is the grave global imbalance we are observing today.

US, Russia and Oil Price Manipulation: The Real Reason OPEC President Was Arrested in London

OPEC President Diezani Alison-Madeuke was arrested in London on corruption charges, along with four others. She has been wanted on corruption charges in her own country Nigeria, where she used to be petroleum minister. After her ‘patron,’ former president of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan, lost to the incumbent president, the new government pledged to crack down on widespread corruption in local petroleum industry. However, despite charges against her, she was still elected OPEC President.

Diezani Alison-Madeuke was let out on bail after her detention and reportedly has stayed under house arrest. Meanwhile, in a sign that the arrest had been coordinated with Nigerian authorities, the financial crimes unit sealed one of Alison-Madueke’s houses in the upmarket Asokoro district in the capital Abuja, two security officials said.

Links to related articles:  Reuters   TelesurTV

There are several things that immediately come to mind in relation with this incident:

There is no doubt in my mind that there is rampant corruption in Nigeria’s oil industry, where few oligarchs control the entire flow of wealth of this most populous African country. There is no doubt in my mind that Alison-Madueke was the point person who executed that control. She represents one of the African oil clans with close Middle Eastern (most likely, Saudi) ties.

However, who really are the judges? The new president of Nigeria is promising to fight corruption – and no doubt that’s why he’s been elected. People crave change and ready to give the chance to anyone who promises it. I do sincerely hope this is the case. But it looks more like the fight between two different oil and political oligarchic clans to me, supported and directed by the US/UK.

This is akin to what’s happening in Ukraine. The most powerful clans of Kolomoysky and Poroshenko continue fighting for the shrinking pie of assets and profits, as we discussed in OLIGARCH WARS, but the invisible hand of their trans-Atlantic puppeteers is always present. ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS is just as timely today as it was when I first released it. What’s happening in Ukraine is a blueprint for understanding what’s happening worldwide, including in those countries where civil society and the rule of law is especially weak.

The most important thing overlooked by many in this scandal is this: Diezani Alison-Madeuke was worried about low oil prices and was planning on calling an emergency meeting to discuss the OPEC strategy change. All this noise about fighting corruption is designed to camouflage something a lot more important: someone wants to pressure OPEC into keeping oil prices low. Who would that be? Check out where she was arrested – in London. I guess that’s because she didn’t go to the US. Otherwise, it would have happened in Four Seasons, or another New York hotel.

Remember ex-IMF President Dominique Strauss-Kahn and allegations that he sexually assaulted a black employee of a New York hotel. France had quickly joined in with more similar allegations. Later, these charges were either dropped or un-proven, but Strauss-Kahn lost his position and much of his reputation. Shortly before the allegations, he had announced his bid for French presidency, which he subsequently had to withdraw.

Of course, the President of the International Monetary Fund, and French to boot, was so desperate that he had to pursue a 40+ year-old hotel maid of questionable looks. Of course, he had absolutely no access to anyone better.

Besides, just imagine how comical those additional prudish allegations of sexual misconduct sounded coming from the French! The French would rather approve than disapprove of such things, or they would just shrug their shoulders: that’s his personal life.

But whose public would believe and ardently support such allegations? That would be the puritanic American public. Therefore, who wrote the whole script for the framing of Dominique Strauss-Kahn? That would the US, operating on the understanding of how it should be done from their perspective.

This had a ‘hoax’ and ‘set-up’ written all over it from the start. Corruption notwithstanding, the same is true for Diezani Alison-Madeuke. Same script authors, whom we may call Anglo-American elites.

It appears Alison-Madeuke represents the OPEC oligarchic clan that attempts to distance itself from the US influence, timidly rebelling against the US and conducting a somewhat more independent policy.

Such arrests serve as a reminder who is the boss. The message is not so much for the person being arrested, but for others: fall in line or you are next. These people all have lots of skeletons in their closets. These skeletons are being kept under wraps, if they behave. The moment they get out of line, the fall guy is chosen and the message to the rest is sent.

The story with the FIFA scandal and the suspension of its powerful long-time president Joseph “Sepp” Blatter is another in the long line of such examples. Angela Merkel has been balancing on the verge and she has been sent multiple messages ‘to toe the line’ since the beginning of Ukraine crisis and anti-Russian sanctions. Same applies to many others.

The world leaders are being treated here like little misbehaved children, who must be spanked into submission once in a while. It’s scary how little power these so-called leaders really have.

About the ‘free’ market hoax and how the oil prices are formed

Let me first say that as an ex-financial consultant with Smith Barney, I can tell you that the self-regulating free market is total BS and a hoax of millennial proportions! It is designed by those who pull the strings to swindle the rest of us. Moreover, in the era of rampant derivatives, it’s not possible whatsoever for the exchanges to perform their primary fiduciary market-making function (ie, setting up and maintaining orderly and fair pricing).

We were taught by the Western ‘free market gurus’ that the global market would self-regulate and fair prices would adjust themselves based on supply and demand. This would mean that a few years ago, when oil reached $148, the demand was three times what it’s today, when oil is below $50. Of course this is not the case and the demand for oil is about the same. The economic factors influencing the oil price initially may have been: Chinese economy slowing down slightly and ISIL dumping oil at low prices. Both factors are relatively negligible and couldn’t have worked for long. The way the market usually works, both have already exhausted their depressive potential.

Conclusion? Someone is manipulating the market and holding oil prices down artificially.

Who and why would do that? OPEC countries are already suffering from low oil prices. For Russia it’s a big problem. Incidentally, on one hand it’s also a problem for the US. American shale oil industry, which uses the expensive and terribly harmful to the environment fracking to extract oil or gas, can’t operate at such low prices and has to stop producing – the only positive that has come out of it.

But US government is ready to sacrifice fracking oil profit for political and geopolitical gain. After all, for as long as US/UK control the entire global economic and financial system, even oil profits are small change.

As far as US internal politics go:

Protests against fracking are on the rise in the US, therefore, conserving the shale oil sites is politically good for Obama and democrats. Secondly, they are intent on keeping gasoline prices low at the pump in pre-election year, in an attempt to bribe voters.

This brings us to the main geopolitical reason!

It’s Russia and Putin. When the oil price drop began last year, it was complex. Part of it was the desire of Saudis and OPEC to stop the new rival: the fast expansion of the American shale oil industry. Another factor was ISIL oil dumping. Of course, Chinese economy slowdown and market speculation contributed to that. Initially, hurting the Russian economy was a side effect and a pleasant bonus for countries like Saudi Arabia, UK and US.

It was supposed to be a temporary operation. OPEC has exhausted its resources and the minds of some of its members have changed. Many OPEC countries now operate at a loss and start experiencing huge budget gaps. Some have had enough and they can’t wait to start stimulating oil prices.

However, sometime during this oil gambit the initiative was overtaken by the US/UK. At one point it became apparent how well it could work to hurt the Russian economy. Therefore, USA resolved to keep oil prices down for as long as possible, pressuring OPEC into doing so by all means necessary.

The initial sabotage idea against the Russian economy (it began with Kiev maidan and 2/2014 coup) looked like this:

  1. Overstretching of Russian finances and economy by making Russia send troops to Ukraine, subsequently having to support the destroyed Ukraine.
  2. Creating the image of Russia as an evil dictatorship, headed by evil Putin, resulting in global isolation and subsequent disintegration.
  3. Simultaneously, crippling the Russian economy and squeezing Russian financial system, closely integrated into the Western financial network via: anti-Russian sanctions; attempted denial of Visa/MC; disconnection from SWIFT; and most importantly, the attack on the Ruble, resulting in its precipitous drop. All this was designed to squeeze Russian business class, bury Eurasian Union, isolate Russia from any allies, and ultimately, make the population hate Putin.

The only thing that did work out in this comprehensive plan was turning Ukraine into a total mess. The rest failed completely.

1. Russia didn’t send troops to Ukraine, as predicted.

2. Anti-Russian sanctions made Europeans distrust US, rather than Russia; Visa/MC/SWIFT sabotage failed.

3. Eurasian Union is experiencing certain color revolution and economic risks, as I had warned since 2014. But despite the risks, it’s still expanding.

4. While the Ruble drop was hurtful, the Russian economy has re-adjusted. The problems created stimuli for the sorely needed import substitution and building up of Russia’s independent from the West financial and economic system – also, as predicted.

5. While Russia is supporting LNR and DNR (only 2 mln people left), plus millions of refugees from Ukraine, these millions of refugees and Ukraine immigrants do contribute to the Russian economy by working. Meanwhile, US and EU have to support the entire 30-35 million still residing in Ukraine, including paying Gazprom for Ukraine’s gas and providing IMF loans – and this was never part of the plan.

6. Instead of isolation, Russia has been growing her ally and supporter base worldwide.

7. Instead of people hating Putin, his rating continues climbing, both in Russia and abroad. The latest: Putin’s rating surpassed 90% – the highest ever. Out of those 10% or less, only a few dislike Putin. Others feel that Putin isn’t ‘Putin enough,’ in other words, that he should be doing more of what he is doing.

8. Last but not least, Crimea becoming a part of Russia was a huge shock to the West. At least several regions of Ukraine can’t wait to follow Crimea’s example – and that was never part of the plan either.

Consequently, US/Obama’s (yes, we know that Obama is just a figure-head) policies have been a total fail on all fronts, except the successful destruction of poor Ukraine.

Enter low oil prices…

At one point US managed to hijack the OPEC oil price manipulation. This is easily done by what is known as US secret crash protection team and shorts/derivatives dumping. Incidentally, something similar is being done to keep gold/silver prices down.

Once the price manipulation is hijacked, all they have to do is: 1. keep it at a certain level; 2. keep those OPEC countries and execs, who start rebelling, in line.

And now we’ve come full circle: the latter is the real reason OPEC President Diezani Alison-Madeuke was arrested in London!

PREDICTION:

Therefore, US wants to continue keeping oil prices suppressed for as long as possible in order to continue hurting Russia. This is tied to elections. At a minimum, US, aided by UK and the City of London, will continue manipulating oil prices till US elections. At a maximum, they’d love it if they could keep them low until Russian presidential elections, to try to dampen Putin’s chances.

But here is the ultimate timeline: when they finally see that Putin gets re-elected despite all of their efforts, they’ll let it go.

The long-term problem with such mafia-like, or highway-bandid-like, behavior, is that US is quickly losing any shred of reputation it still has left worldwide. The result will be the universal distrust and hatred towards the country once called ‘a beacon of democracy.’

Meanwhile, Russia and Putin’s influence and reputation worldwide will continue growing.

Comrades Roosevelt and Gregory Peck: When Hollywood Sent Its Scripts For Stalin’s Approval

This article is part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON

(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)

We are approaching the 70th Anniversary of the Great Victory over German Nazism and associated invaders (also known in the Russian world as the Great Victory in the Great Patriotic War), which will be celebrated in grand style on Moscow’s Red Square on May 9th, 2015. I thought it would be a terrific idea to do a few posts commemorating this date; in the future, I may do a separate piece presenting some of the most famous and amazing Russian songs and films. These reminders are especially important, considering how many out there are trying yet again to re-write history, something to which I don’t take kindly. I especially don’t appreciate the ungratefulness and arrogance of all those countries whom Russians and other peoples of the Soviet Union liberated in 1944-45 at the cost of 27 million lives, endless suffering, and destroyed country.

Sabotage by the leaders of US, UK, EU and associated countries of the celebrations in Moscow on May 9th; all manner of provocative statements by Poland, Ukraine and Baltics, together with their active re-animation of fascism – are beyond bad tone and beyond shameful.

And here is something else that should have been remembered, but was conveniently forgotten.

I noticed that some people in the West have a knee jerk reaction every time I mention anything to do with the USSR. What doesn’t occur to these people is that they have simply been pre-programmed by their propaganda machine to perceive anything to do with USSR or Russia as evil. The piece below will demonstrate how it was, and continues being, done.

Humans usually call those who submit too easily to someone’s will ‘lapdogs’ and ‘sheeple.’ Please, don’t insult the poor animals! Animals live in love and trust. Humans, on the other hand, submit out of apathy, hatred, fear, greed or other ulterior motive.

In addition, as you’ll see below, humans seem to have a goldfish memory. Let’s not insult the goldfish either – it should really be labeled ‘human memory’ since this is the only species that tends to conveniently forget. It is only humans who remember selectively when it suits them, developing sudden amnesia when it doesn’t.

Today’s feature:

Comrades Roosevelt and Gregory Peck: 

When Hollywood Sent Its Scripts For Stalin’s Approval 

Here is a remarkable list of films (in Russian and English) released by Hollywood during the period between 1942 and 1945:

“Дни Славы” – Days of Glory, 1944

“Миссия в Москву” – Mission To Moscow

“Северная Звезда” – The North Star (также известен под названием «Бронированная атака» aka, Armored Attack)

“Песня о России” – Song Of Russia, 1944

The story of these films is truly incredible and hard to imagine in view of today’s escalation of anti-Russian rhetoric and saber-rattling. After maligning the young Soviet Union for years since 1917, in 1941-42 Hollywood suddenly was charged with creating a positive PR campaign, in which Russia would be portrayed as a “nice country, with people just like Americans, who want to live in peace and who value their culture, music and art; who work hard and who also fight hard to defend their country.” All this was supposed to help “the war effort,” as expressed by the US President Franklin Roosevelt.

For this piece, I chose to talk about Days of Glory and Song of Russia.

Days of Glory was the debut of the Hollywood screen legend Gregory Peck (star of Roman Holiday, Cape Fear, Moby Dick; Best Actor Oscar for: To Kill the Mockingbird). In the movie, Comrade Peck plays the commander of the Soviet partisans (guerilla resistance) fighting against the Nazis. The video below presents several scenes from that film, along with the plot. The movie is pretty weak and full of clichés: partisans in the middle of a brutal war eat borscht from fine china and sit at a round dining table plucked from someone’s living room and placed in their spacious underground bunker; the man reprimanded for drinking responds with dismay that he is a stinking, dirty pig; the little girl addresses the ballerina, “You can’t cook, and you are a woman?” etc. The love story between Peck and the hungry ballerina, whose name is Nina and who just appears out of nowhere, is a little unrealistic as well.

But let’s just say… it’s the thought that counts. Despite all the weak links, the film conveys some very concrete ideas, such as: the Russian/Soviet partisans are good, humane people; they are the friends of the American people, who fight the fascists just like Americans do.

In the video below you can glean the movie scenes from Days of Glory in English between 1:10 – 6:33.

Song of Russia, a musical. In the video below, the movie scenes in English can be gleaned starting at 6:35.

Plot: a famous orchestra director John Meredith arrives to Moscow on a tour. He meets Russian girl, Nadya, and falls in love. When John takes his new Russian friend to a restaurant, he is in a state of cognitive dissonance (7:54). Strange, he says, everyone’s having such a good time. Is that wrong? asks she. No, except I thought Russians were sad, melancholy people sitting around, brooding about their souls. When conflicted Nadya flees from John to her native village, Tchaikovskoye, John follows her there. He again meets a lot of nice, joyful people who love to sing and dance. Nadya’s father talks tenderly to his tractor that leaks oil, “don’t cry ‘golubchik’ (darling), I’ll be back soon.”

At 9:25 – happy kolkhoz workers are singing, returning back from the fields. Oh, my! Watching this, I might mistake it for a Soviet movie circa 1933, glorifying Grandpa Stalin and the USSR! Just imagine this kind of Soviet ‘propaganda’ coming out of MGM!

In actuality, the song is pretty realistic, and Russians do like to sing and dance, including when working in the fields.

The main toast at John and Nadya’s Russian village wedding: “For the happiness of your great country, and for the happiness of our great country” – 11:10. In other words, friendship and global brotherhood, just like the USSR suggested to begin with!

See how easy it is to switch on and off a specific propaganda! Let’s follow this logical chain to its inevitable conclusion. In other words, if US/UK/EU propaganda didn’t work overtime to create and reinforce the image of Russia as a villain and enemy, today we all would have lived in peace and friendship!

But happiness doesn’t last – 11:22. Germany attacks Russia on June 22, 1941 and John’s manager tells him he should stop his tour and leave to the US. “Down at the consulate they say Germans will win this war in 6 weeks.” To which Nadya replies, “No, they will not win!”

The movie contains a totally incredible scene: Stalin’s real speech to the Soviet people (11:57). This famous speech began: “Comrades, Citizens, Brothers and Sisters, Soldiers and Sailors, I am addressing all of you, my friends. In this brutal war against the hateful forces of fascism we will have allies in the face of the peoples of Europe and USA.” For some strange reason, in the American translation Hollywood took out the words “brothers and sisters.”

Stalin is depicted here not as a brutal dictator, but as a world leader who manages to pull together allies and rise the morale not only in his country, but worldwide. It was noted by those who curated the film that Stalin’s calm and heartfelt speech was in stark contrast to Hitler’s hysterical screams, which made Americans feel uneasy. The conclusion was made that Americans would like Stalin’s manner. This is how Hollywood and US government were selling Stalin to the American people as a credible ally!!

When Nazis take over Tchaikovskoye, Nadya’s father and nephew are killed. John wants to join the partisans, but they charge him with going back to America together with Nadya in order to explain to the American people how hard the people of Russia have to fight. Nadya must tell Americans how her relatives and friends have died and that millions in Russia now fight for their land against fascism – 13:53. John and Nadya go back to the US, where they tell their story. Unbelievably, the entire movie is a 100% positive and sweet portrayal of Russia/USSR, perhaps a tad too sweet.

But what is especially remarkable in this whole story is what went on behind the scenes. The documents related to the creation of this and other such movies were declassified only recently.

American President Roosevelt named Lowell Mellet (15:09), a prominent journalist, to head the Office of War Information. He shaped the government PR and Hollywood propaganda during the war. Starting at 15:11, the video presents various correspondence between the Russian ambassador to the US Maxim Litvinov and the US side. It was understood that when Litvinov was asked to provide advice and vet the movie script, taking into account the severity of the war situation and the importance of the positive PR, he consulted the Kremlin and personally Stalin.

At 16:23: left to right – Soviet FM Molotov, Stalin (center), Litvinov (right).

The correspondence addresses the credibility of various scenes in the movie, including Russian names, places, what Russian trains look like, how the children are evacuated when Nazis come, how people should react to the air-raid sirens, etc. They did stop short of discussing the skirt length.

This fascinating text is in English and you can just read it in the video below. The Russian embassy replies start at 16:40.

18:10. Directions for the MGM script “Russia,” aka, “Song of Russia,” looked like this:

In the movie, we need to reiterate as often as possible that it was the Soviet Army who first destroyed the 10-year myth of the invincibility of the German Nazi army. The background should include the rich wheat fields of Ukraine, the modern city of Moscow, the DneproGes dam (LR: remember I mentioned DneproGes in Crazy Asylum Overload: Ukraine Bans Communism – Goodbye Chinese Investments as the impressive symbol of the Soviet communist industrialization!), a collective farm, a factory, Moscow Metro. All this should dispel the Americans’ impression of Russia as composed solely of bleak fields and backward villages, convincing them that Russians are solid and trustworthy allies!

There is more in the video. Check it out:

Let’s get this straight:

American and British propaganda worked hard to create a threatening and negative image of Russia in the form of the young USSR, after they first financed Lenin and the Bolshevik revolution. Then, when emergency knocked on the door in the form of the advancing Hitler armies (the monster who was also their handiwork), they began working equally hard to dispel what they had created! As soon as the war was over, MSM and Hollywood were back on track re-creating the image of Russia as USA’s worst enemy, organizing the Iron Curtain and Cold War in the process.

Next, in 1991-1998, when Yeltsin and Co. were conducting the wholesale sell-out of the country to the West, US media again worked hard to dispel the image of Russia as an enemy they carefully maintained in the previous 40 years. In the ’90s, I lived in the US and I remember the sudden and shocking turn to the positive propaganda. Yeltsin’s Russia was praised. Why not! It was, after all, the regime that surrendered to the West all the prized properties and achievements generations of Russians had worked hard to create. Meanwhile, the same propaganda machine conducted a bashing campaign against stubborn Serbia because someone still had to play the arch-enemy’s role while Russia was otherwise engaged.

In the ’90s I remember the talk, even among pro-Western and pro-oligarchy Russians, that Russia’s role was to be a ‘natural resources appendix to the West,’ sort of Nigeria of Eurasia. But Russia came back to her senses sooner than they expected. After Putin came to power, it became clear that the plan failed. At that point, with renewed vigor, they began re-establishing the image of Russia as the arch-enemy.

Ah, the schizophrenic American propaganda! But what is most amazing is how happily humans in the US and EU yo-yo wherever the wind blows.

As the old Soviet joke goes:

“Have you ever deviated from the party line?”

“Yes, together with the party.”

In conclusion, I want to mention that of all US presidents, the one I personally respect is FDR. It is suspected, and I have a good reason to believe it’s true, that Roosevelt was poisoned in 1945, to make room for Truman and his convenient russophobia. The change of wind happened after Hitler was no more and Russia turned out stronger, instead of weaker, as a result of WWII.

The master plan was that the USSR and Germany were supposed to destroy each other in the course of WWII, as explained by Churchill. Alas, that plan failed. Roosevelt was too amicable for plan B – destroying the USSR (far more than just containing USSR, as many have thought).

Referring to A-bomb, Truman announced after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, “Now we have the stick against the Russians.” Russia has recently de-classified documents confirming that after Hiroshima, USA was planning on destroying the top cities and military targets of Russia, including the capital cities of Moscow and Leningrad, Black Sea and Northern Fleets.

The delay was due to the fact that US simply used up its only two A-bombs in Japan. It took time to manufacture the new supply. Russians used this narrow window of opportunity to produce their own A-bomb, thus deterring the attack. When Americans learned about the Russian A-bomb, they had to go to plan “C,” commonly referred to as the Cold War and Iron Curtain.

Roosevelt was inconvenient because he dreamed of a peaceful ‘condominium’ between USA and Russia, according to Tarpley. And that was very dangerous for those whose life’s ambition was to execute the Full Spectrum Global Dominance doctrine they are still trying to realize today.

Regardless of what anyone thinks about Stalin, it has to be recognized that he was an even more formidable obstacle in their way. You could say he was the ultimate obstacle. As a consequence, he was poisoned in 1953. Stalin rejected the idea of the dollar as the only world-reserve currency. He also introduced the 100% gold-backed ruble, called Chervonets, used by the USSR for international settlements. After Stalin was eliminated, Khrushchev agreed to the dollar world-reserve currency status.

70 anniversary of great victory

P.S. Incidentally, a few days ago, the Russian ‘dictator’ Putin announced a sweeping amnesty to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Great Victory. Every 6th person may be released from jail.

Compare that to the world’s biggest democracy: US jails are in fact a profitable business and the US prisoner population is by far the largest in the world. That’s not counting all those unarmed people US cops shoot almost daily all over the country.

Putin Authorizes Delivery of S-300 Missile Systems to Iran

As a direct consequence of the US and EU push for the lift of the oil embargo and sanctions in exchange for Iran giving up its nuclear program (well, at least partially), Putin has lifted ban on delivery of S-300 missile systems to Iran and authorized the delivery. The contract between Russia and Iran was signed over 5 years ago, but the US and EU imposed anti-Iran sanctions and broad embargo, preventing the delivery at the time. Russian FM Lavrov announced that with the ban lift, there are no more obstacles to the contract completion.

It has to be noted that S-300 isn’t Russia’s most advanced missile defence system. S-400 is a more sophisticated one, and the newest cutting-edge designs are coming up as well. Iran faces dangers in the region and it needs the means to defend itself, while S-300 is a purely defensive system posing no threat, said the Russian leadership.

This new development is happening at the same time the US and EU say they won’t give up on their missile system in Europe, despite the fact that hypothetical aggressor against which this system is supposedly directed – Iran – is giving up its nuclear program. It’s common knowledge that in reality, US missile defence system in Europe is directed against Russia, which both US and NATO have denied for years.

It has to be noted that the Yemen bombings have also influenced the Russian S-300 delivery decision.

In addition to Iran’s need to defend itself from potential aggression by Saudis, US and/or Israel, Russia’s move is part of a complex geopolitical chess game in which S-300 is used as leverage. One of the messages Russia sends to the US and EU is: ‘you make your move – we make ours.’

Lada Ray on The Plane Truth: Geopolitical Feng Shui and BRICS/EU Predictions

My new interview with The Plane Truth is here!

We delve into the fascinating Earth Feng Shui, and specifically, my proprietary school of Geopolitical Feng Shui. I explain how the 2015 Chinese Year of the Wood Sheep works worldwide, and how it compares to the previous 2014 Year of the Wood Horse that just ended. We also talk about the important Water Feng Shui and how the presence of big bodies of water (oceans, rivers) and their pollution by humans influence any city or country’s fortune.

I further reveal what is Chinese Zodiac and how it really works, what is the classic Compass School of feng shui, and how feng shui helps me make my global predictions.

Last, but not least, this show is in big part about predictions. We discuss my predictions concerning the BRICS, EU, Latin America, Eurasia and US, as well as the general Earth Shift timeline.

This interview was recorded in the beginning of February 2015, but published only yesterday due to certain scheduling issues. That’s why you will see me referring to the Year of the Sheep as yet to start. The Chinese Year of the Sheep has started on January 19, 2015 and the auspicious celebrations period is ending today, March 4.

Why Is Obama Scrambling to Catch Up to Putin?

Thank you, Mr. President! In his recent interview with CNN, Obama admitted that US ‘brokered’ Kiev ukro-nazi coup and Ukraine regime change.

Not that it is a secret to anyone, but it’s nice to hear it straight out of the horse’s mouth.

The world does need to hear this slip-of-the-tongue admission by the Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama that USA in fact was behind the violent ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014 in Kiev that unseated Yanukovich and created the bloody civil war in Ukraine. Just one day prior, on February 21, 2014, the EU and foreign ministers from Poland, Germany and France put their signatures under a deal between Yanukovich and Kiev maidan leaders, guaranteeing a stop to violence. One day later, based on the direct US order, as was revealed first in the leaked tape by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland, and now by Obama, the violent coup overturned Yanukovich, which resulted in the civil war with tens of thousands dead, Donbass infrastructure bombed into oblivion and Ukraine economy destroyed. See RT video with admission: Obama’s guilty conscience talking.

On nother note: notice how hurt Obama sounds during his State of the Union Address and in this interview, towards Putin. Obama comes across as having a fixation on Putin and feeling personally jealous. Not a good thing for a US president, in which he demonstrates both his weakness and insecurity.

In his State of the Union address, Obama said that when in 2014 ‘Putin took Crimea,’ as he put it, everyone touted that as a brilliant chess move. But where is Russia now, he added. Russian economy is in ‘tatters.’

I’ll leave outside the scope of this piece the fact that Russian economy is hardly in tatters and that mid-to-long-term the EU/US sanctions will benefit the Russian economy tremendously. I talked a lot about that in my various articles and YT videos throughout 2014. Also, see my new videos: LRL5: Manufactured Russian Crisis, US Manipulation and Medvedev Plan and LRL6. Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey – Greek Election – EU Breakup.

In the above interview, Obama is back to justifying what were spectacular fails by the US in 2014, namely, Crimea and Donbass. No, Crimea wasn’t any grand master plan by Putin, says Obama. It was merely a reaction to the circumstances AFTER WE BROKERED THE POWER TRANSFER IN KIEV (read: ukro-nazi coup of February 22, 2014 that led to bloody civil war that continues destroying Donbass and killing thousands of people).

Mr. Obama, you bet Putin was reacting to circumstances you and your friends created. If not for the US, there would have been no bloody mess in Ukraine, Donbass would have not rebelled, and Crimea would have still been a part of Ukraine. Read: US Planned to Turn #Crimea into Military Base Against Russia and Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014.

So, for what it’s worth, the citizens of the Russian Crimea are saying: “Thank you, Mr. Obama!” Thanks to you and your government’s miscalculations, Crimean people’s 23-year-old dream of re-uniting with Russia came true.

Citizens of Russia are also very grateful to you. They are thankful for the sanctions, which allow them to develop their own industry and agriculture that was disadvantaged by the proliferation of the Western produce on the Russian market. Given time, these sanctions will also allow Russia to properly rebuild its financial and monetary system, nationalize Central Bank and re-gain full sovereignty of the Russian currency. This is the beginning of the end of the dollar system.

Citizens of the world are grateful to you, as well. Thanks to the US government’s over-reach and ignorant arrogance, people not only in Russia, South America and Asia have woken up. The rebellion is now starting in the EU. The first country to rebel is Greece; Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia, and eventually France, UK and Germany to follow.

Europe’s natural trade partner is Russia. Eurasia, with countries like China and India, is growing fast. Russia is a natural bridge between Europe and Asia. It is through Russia that Western Europe can connect with the booming Asia. Western Europe, Russia and Asia are a natural alliance, allowing people all over the entire continent (Europe + Asia = Eurasia) benefit from each other’s strength and borrow each other’s expertise.

The development of Eurasia, based on the new cooperative principles, will change the balance of our planet. Abandoning behind today’s predatory capitalism, people of our planet need to move to the cooperative society of the future.

America, both North and South, Africa and Australia can then also become the equal and productive partners of the new, stable and cooperative planet Earth. However, to achieve that, first we need to change the imbalanced situation that exists today when single, overly aggressive country tries to dictate to the rest of the world.

The Eurasia story is very important. Stay tuned to my upcoming Earth Shift Reports in which we will discuss it in detail!

US vassals and ‘allies’ are rebelling all over the world. A loyal vassal and NATO member of many years, Turkey, has effectively switched sides. I remember the Cold War days, when Turkey was the place from where NATO/US bases threatened Russia and the city of Odessa, where I grew up, from the south. Today’s Turkey signed the Turkish Stream agreement with Russia and is in line for ascension into SCO. One of the latest occurrences: when Ukraine announced their US sponsors were building LNG terminal in Odessa to replace Russian gas, Turkey that controls the straits announced they won’t let US tankers into the Black Sea.

Meanwhile in Greece: after winning the Greek elections, the Syriza party already announced that they would consider exiting NATO and EU. I said in my recent LadaRayLive video about Turkish Stream and Greek elections (see link above) that Cyprus would follow Greece, should Greece decide to exit EU (and NATO). Interesting news crossed the wires from Zerohedge. Cyprus, reportedly, has offered its territory for a Russian navy base. The strategic importance of such location cannot be underestimated.

France is being threatened by the US repeatedly because the French are trying to break the mold and serve as a bridge between Russia and the West. See related articles: Who Benefits from the Death of the French Oil Giant Total’s CEO Christophe de Margerie? and Secret Link Between French False Flag Attacks and Ukraine and How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates.

US manages to keep Angela Merkel of Germany in line, but the German people are not fooled. The latest trip to Kiev and Moscow by Merkel and Hollande are a signal of EU’s dissent as well. Future will tell us how far this dissent will go, but it’s the beginning.

Even Israel and Saudis are starting to rebel.

It’s not going very well for Mr. Obama on the international arena, which is why his rating keeps dropping and is at an all-time low for his presidency. Meanwhile, Putin’s, already high rating, has jumped up in the past year. Putin’s general approval rating is between 83 and 88. Another recent poll showed that if presidential election were held today, 74% of Russians would have voted for Putin, which is a record number. In 2012 almost 64% voted for Putin, in 2004 – 68%.

Seems like all Obama is doing lately is scrambling to catch-up to Putin all over the world. Putin goes to Cuba – several months later Obama announces that 50 years of anti-Cuban sanctions have been an epic fail and that US needs to re-establish relations with Cuba (check out my articles about Cuba and Putin’s trip to Latin America on this blog). For years, Russia has been working with Iran, lessening the impact of Western sanctions and brokering various agreements between Iran and the West. Suddenly, Obama remembers that anti-Iran sanctions are also a fail and announces that Iran, after all, does have the right to nuclear energy.

Putin recently went to India, signing $20bln worth of trade agreements. Barely a few weeks later, Obama followed in Putin’s tracks. He tried to convince India to leave the BRICS, offering some perks that weren’t fully disclosed.

Signs are important. A red carpet was rolled out for Obama in India. But as Obama descended from his plane, his tank-like limo drove onto the red carpet and blocked Obama’s path. To shake hands both Obama and Indian president had to walk around the limo.

Later, Obama watched a military parade in his honor, while chewing gum, which Indians took as an insult. They should have pitied him instead as chewing gum actually denotes discomfort and nervousness.

I can certainly see why Obama had felt nervous while watching that military parade. For one, Indians were demonstrating rockets, tanks and other serious military hardware. The polite Indians would always make their guest welcome, but in this case, this demo of the Indian military power was no doubt meant as a subtle (well, not so subtle, perhaps) hint not to try anything funny as India would be capable of defending itself. But the clincher was that Indians made Obama sit through the parade filled with latest Russian technology recently purchased by India. Anyone would start chewing gum at such humiliation!

After Obama’s visit to India, China issued a rare official warning to India that they shouldn’t get too close to the US and that they should stick with their BRICS friends. China is obviously acting here on behalf of other BRICS countries. But in reality, China needn’t worry. US won’t get anywhere with India. Same goes for Iran and Cuba.

For all these countries US overtures are too little too late. These jerky moves by Obama denote desperation and admission of the fact that power is slipping away from the world hegemon wannabe.

In the very beginning of 2014 I predicted that US getting involved in Ukraine and orchestrating the illegal nazi coup in Kiev would not get them anywhere long-term. I said that they already lost, but they don’t know it yet. Unfortunately, the energy that is clearly set in stone in the cosmic sense; in other words, something I can clearly see as already manifested as a mystical futurist, takes a long time to play out in 3D. 3D is the three-dimensional reality of the physical dimension in which humanity exists. Therefore, what was clearly visible to me since February 2014, is only now starting to manifest in the physical reality.

I also said that at this time of massive Earth Shift and re-building of the entire human econo-political system, smaller countries and countries that are in-between (the ones whose allegiances could be divided) could benefit by negotiating preferential deals with both sides. It’s sort of like children of divorced parents, who can get twice the presents and ice cream from both. But such things only go so far. At some point everyone will have to decide which way they go.

As to India, I hear my Indian friends saying that Russia is their most loyal friend that had proven time and again their friendship. Therefore, there is no question in their mind which way to go.

Incidentally, FM of India has met with FMs of China and Russia in Beijing to discuss their common affairs, following Obama’s visit to New Delhi. Link to press conference in Chinese and Russian. Translating from the diplomatic tongue it means: “Sure, we met with Obama, but it was all for show. We are with you all the way, rest assured.”

Neither Indians, nor Iranians or Cubans, not to mention Greeks, Italians, Kazakhs, South Americans and Chinese have any illusions about the US. They know very well who their friend is, and who isn’t. When I traveled in Asia in the early 2000, I was amazed at how people felt towards the US in countries such as Malaysia. The past 12 years and latest Malaysia Airlines false flags only reinforced their opinion.

This information is diligently suppressed in the West, but the rest of the world understands very well that it was US, together with its vassals, who orchestrated the bloody nazi coup in Kiev for the purpose of destroying Ukraine, destabilizing Russia and EU, and in order to put a wedge between Russia and EU (for details see my 2014 articles about Ukraine and PREDICTIONS).

People don’t buy the official US lies. The old US playbook has stopped working.

So, Mr. Obama, as they say in Russia, don’t dig a grave for someone else – you’ll fall in it yourself.

EARTH SHIFT REPORT update:

The Earth Shift Reports are coming soon. New information has come out that needs to be incorporated. I will only release my reports when the energy is right and when I feel satisfied that I’ve covered everything I need to cover; in other words, when I feel I’ve captured the COMPLETE picture. Besides, I want to take into account recent requests by readers for additional information and new Earth Shift Reports. In what order the reports will start coming out? Again, it depends on which one is ready first and how the energy aligns. Please be patient. And as you may probably already know from reading my articles, your patience will be amply rewarded by new revelations!

The reports will be posted on my new site LadaRay.info and announced on FuturisTrendcast.

Jim Willie — The Gazprom Wars and the Ukrainian Trap on The Plane Truth

Below is another excellent interview with Jim Willie of the Golden Jackass by our friends at The Plane Truth radio.

First, a few of my thoughts:

Jim Willie is discussing how the West is trying to attack the Russian Gazprom. Gazprom is a major player in the world economy. It is one of the world’s largest companies. Russia owns at least 30% of the world’s gas. Another issue raised in this interview concerns the Russian gold and what was really behind the Cyprus debacle last year, how it was related to Russia and Russian financial interests. What is Europe’s role. Russian gas pipelines and Syria. And finally, how’s Ukraine related to all this. Read the rest of this entry

Destroying the Economy: Rigged Wall Street System of Daily Fraud

This post is a fusion of the two different media items of interest regarding the rigged Wall Street financial system with my own thoughts on the subject as former Smith Barney financial consultant.

I’ve included the new #KeiserReport on #RT with Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert, which addresses only a couple of the many rigged games Wall Street plays these days, thus sucking resources and life out of the US economy, as well as the economies of other countries. These two are: 1. “high-frequency trading” and 2. “insider trading.” While the latter is well-known, the former being a fraud may be a surprise for some. How does high-frequency trading work? Max Keiser gives us his primer. In the second half Max interviews Doug Casey about investing and its secrets. One of the interesting points is about Argentina, which again seems to be in a pre-default crisis.

I worked on Wall Street as financial consultant for Salomon Smith Barney (at the time, the investment banking arm of Citigroup), and I left because I was disgusted with its dirty innerworkings. However,  several years ago even I couldn’t imagine the degree to which the game would be rigged today… Max and Stacy like to talk about the JP Morgan CEO, Jamie Dimon, and his role in the rigging of the system, which will eventually lead to its collpse. When I worked at Smith Barney, Jamie Dimon was one of the top honchos at Citigroup, who was tipped for the next CEO’s position. However, he ubruptly left in the end of 1990s (was fired?) after a mystery row with Citi’s then CEO, Sandy Weill. Read the rest of this entry

The Plane Truth ~ Gas and Gold: Goodbye to the Petrodollar with Jim Willie

Lots of good info with Jim Willie. The fall of #SaudiArabia, #petrodollar, #USA. Geopolitics of #China, #Russia, the #BRICS, #Iran, natural gas, #Gazprom, pipelines, #Cyprus and more.

Warning: some items in his narrative (mostly in the second half) may seem like a far-fetched “fantasy.” There is lots of interesting stuff here and the important thing is to keep an open mind. I can neither confirm nor deny some of Jim’s info or conclusions in the second half of the interview. Still, a lot of what he says, primarily in the first half,  I know to be true or at least plausible. So, have a listen and use your best judgement.

Top 30 Countries with Largest Currency Reserves

Below are top 30 countries with the largest foreign exchange reserves, excluding gold, according to Wikipedia. Why is this list important right now? While the US government is in a shut-down mode and default is looming, it is a good idea to examine the real financial situation with various countries. Just like in your household and mine, we determine the solvency of any economy by savings to debt ratio. Which countries are solvent and which are not? What is really going on with the US government debt?

As of 10/10/2013, USA has $16.749 trillion in public debt and only $136 billion in currency reserves. If you or I had this kind of debt to savings ratio, we would have to declare bankruptcy in a hurry. Moreover, no one in their right mind would have lent us this much money in the first place, seeing as we had so little in savings. How does USA get away with it? And how did it manage to keep its AAA rating till relatively recently? Apart from the global financial game being seriously rigged in favor of the United States, the US has been enjoying an unfair advantage no one else has: the US dollar, or petrodollar as it’s frequently referred to, is the world reserve currency. The US can print (or rather add digits electronically) as much as it wants, thus devaluing yours and mine hard-earned savings and destroying the long-term value of the currency, while exporting inflation and financial problems to other countries. However, the US won’t be able to do this with impunity forever. The situation is changing slowly but surely. I’ll talk about that in future posts. More coming!

The numbers below don’t take into account the so-called creditor nation vs. debtor nation status, in other words, the level of debt of any given country. For example, China has by far the largest foreign exchange reserves – almost $3.5 trillion. Over 1 trillion of that is in US dollar. Chinese debt has been rising fast due to the rapid pace of economic growth (which has now slowed down significantly), but compared to China’s reserves, it’s still relatively small. This makes China the larger creditor nation in the world. Russia has a negligible debt, however, its reserves are at $470 billion, which makes Russia a pure creditor nation. Same is true for Switzerland, whose debt is small compared to its reserves. At the same time, USA currency reserves are only $136 billion, while America’s public debt as of 10/10/2013 is $16.749 trillion and rising fast (see US debt clock), which makes it the largest debtor nation not only in the world, but also in human history! Note: if we include US private and corporate debt, the numbers by some estimates will be closer to $100 trillion.

Stay tuned: The largest Gold Reserves by country coming next!
