LADA RAY DEEP INTEL: Catastrophic Population Loss. Why Ukrainians stampede into Poland as EU visa-free begins
Stampede to get out of Ukraine and into Poland! The video below is self-explanatory. This is happening on the border between Ukraine and Poland, the moment 90-day visa-free regime (Ukrainian/Russian: ‘bezviz’ = ‘without visa’) between EU and Ukraine comes into effect. The voice behind the camera speaks in Ukrainian: “Look, Mr. Poroshenko, this is what our Euro-integration looks like.”
As I explained since 2014, after the Kiev junta and ukro-nazis came to power, what little talent, brains and active population was still left in Ukraine, has been leaving. Millions moved to Russia. Anywhere between 7 and 8 million either work and live in Russia or have received Russian citizenship between 1991 and 2017. At least 1.5-2 million became refugees in Russia after Poroshenko junta came to power. Up to 3-4 million also left to the EU and US. This process greatly intensified after 2014 Kiev Maidan.
Poroshenko made a grand production, turned into a dog-and-pony show, of the simple 90-day visa free tourist travel allowed by the EU as of June 2017, portraying it as his huge victory and great achievement of Maidan. He and his cronies tout visa-free with the EU as a demonstration that “Ukraine is rejoining Europe, and finally severing all ties with Russia.” “We are finally getting away from the unwashed Russia and rejoining the civilized Europe, Europe, which we, Ukrainians long ago founded,” proclaimed Poroshenko from the podium in Kiev, where thousands of students and state workers were herded, dressed in same T-shirts with EU flag and waiving mini-EU flags they were handed out.
And no, I didn’t mistranslate what Poroshenko said about ‘Ukrainians founding Europe’ — believe it or not, this is what new Ukrainian history books teach. They also teach that there were ancient Ukrs, forefathers of today’s Ukrainians, who had absolutely nothing to do with Russians, and that these ancient Ukrs dug out a giant hole in the ground, which we now know as… the BLACK SEA.
At the same event drunk Poroshenko said ‘goodbye forever’ to Russia over 3 times, returning to the issue of that mean ex called Russia over and over, while repeatedly quoting great Russian poets — in Russian. All this to the pre-rehearsed clapping of the herded-in sheeple, dressed in EU T-s and waving EU flags. Many videos of the above ‘event’ have been posted on YouTube, and there is no other way to describe it other than pathetic. Here’s one such video. The title reads: Kiev authorities tout visa-free with EU as panacea against all problems experienced by Ukraine:
If based on the above you think that a bizarre and lethal collective madness took a firm hold of Ukraine, you are not far from the truth.
It has been noted by the majority of Ukrainian analysts that the vast majority of Ukrainians cannot afford to travel as tourists to the EU on their measly incomes. This has been said even by those who have been initially pro-Maidan, but who now finally are beginning to notice that something went terribly wrong. The only real value of the EU visa-free travel is to pretend you are a tourist, but use your 90 days to latch on to a job so you could remain permanently.
As you see on the video, the crowd is crossing to Poland on foot – to save money. They probably have low-paying jobs, such as agriculture, taking care of the elderly and working as janitors, awaiting them on the other side. Polish slave-drivers and menial-jobs brokers are eager to get their hands on this new wave of slave labor. While these will work in Poland’s menial jobs, Poles are free to go to Western Europe, where they’ll do the same, but for a lot more money.
Some Ukrainians, who have better prospects, better education or who are younger and bolder, may leave by train or bus to Central and Western Europe. Therefore, the remainder of the most able-bodied, active, highest Chi and best skilled population is leaving Ukraine at even a faster rate than ever before.
Since 1992 when Ukraine first acquired independence after the collapse of the USSR, and without a major war it lost a huge chunk of the population. The data of 1993 registered the population of Ukraine as 54 million. As you’ll see below, the new data suggests the population of Ukraine now shrunk by more than half!
Due to the catastrophic loss of the population the new census has been a taboo. In today’s fascist Ukraine it is literally forbidden to research and voice out the truth about the population loss. The official numbers are grossly overstated and bluntly falsified.
Recently, the last remaining in Ukraine decent economists, such as bezviz, leader of the outlawed and prosecuted Progressive Socialist Party (+ a few others), have calculated the true state of events. They based their data on the consumption of bread – traditionally an important staple in Russian and Ukrainian diet, as well that of the nearby Moldova.
Bread, note Vitrenko and others, is so inexpensive and such a big staple, that when people cannot afford anything else, they’ll still buy bread. Other data, such as alcohol, meat, or fruit consumption is unreliable as people can use their gardens, bootleg illegal alcohol, etc., when they become poorer. But very few will bake their own bread as it requires a large usage of natural gas and electricity — both very expensive and in short supply in today’s Ukraine. Therefore, people would still buy bread in stores due to its relative low-cost and good quality.
Since Russian bread consumption per capita is known and it stands around 42 kilos per capita per year, based on that it is easy to calculate how much bread would be consumed in the very similar Ukrainian culture. In fact, notes Vitrenko, Russian bread consumption per capita should be lower than Ukrainian, as Russians make 4 times more money per capita and can afford a large variety of foods.
**I’ll add to this that Russians have been living a much more satisfied and healthy lifestyles than Ukrainians, which also lowers bread consumption.
Yet, the official data puts bread consumption in Ukraine at 24 kilos per capita per year. This is based on the government’s official population count of 42 million. The official Kiev explains this discrepancy by saying that Ukrainians buy less and bake more. However, as I pointed out above, it is impossible for the majority as the gas and electricity are unaffordably expensive.
And then the question is: if Ukrainians eat a lot less bread, a lot less meat and fruit, drink a lot less alcohol per capita compared to 2013 — then what do they consume? Is, as a result of the 2014 Kiev coup, Ukraine then starving in a self-inflicted golodomor (holodomor)?
To set the record straight, instead of the falsified official Ukrainian data of 24 kilos per capita, Vitrenko and other economists used Russian bread consumption base number of 42 kilos per capita per year.
**I should mention that Kiev still counts the population of Crimea and LDPR as their own. In other words, they bomb Donbass and threaten to invade Crimea / sabotage its economy, yet they count them as parts of Ukraine. Crimean population is 2.3 million and LDPR’s is about 3.6 million. Altogether — minus 5.9 million for Ukraine.
Having subtracted Crimea and LDPR populations, and based on the bread consumption per capita, Vitrenko and others have arrived at 25-26 million people remaining in Ukraine. This is down from 54 million in 1993 — without WWIII! This is the loss of over 1/2 of the entire population!
Incidentally, please recall that I have been predicting this catastrophic outcome since 2014! My personal estimate for the remaining Ukrainian population has been 28-30 million. In other words, pretty close to Vitrenko’s numbers.
Another extremely disturbing moment: per Vitrenko’s calculations out of the total 28-29 million lost, 13 million is a pure population contraction. This is the number of people who simply died: in other words, the expedited by hardship death ratio outweighs birth ratio to such catastrophic degree! This is not golodomor — this is simply mor (Rus/Ukr word for mass extinction).
Poroshenko and his cronies must be totally dumb, you may say. Instead of making life in Ukraine better for ordinary people so they would want to remain and build a life for themselves in their own country, they open the floodgates, basically telling people to run to the EU.
Poroshenko is not exactly dumb. He is smart enough to hang on to power all this time, manipulating his Western sponsors and various ukro-nazi forces. And he is smart enough to multiply his fortune more than 7-fold since 2014, while his country is dying.
In fact, Poroshenko is two things in one wrapper:
1. Oligarch who is sucking the last remaining juices out of Ukraine, using his privileged power position as president. Bezviz (visa-free to the EU) is one of Poroshenko’s populist moves to get elected for the next term, despite his catastrophically low approval rating. Premature elections may be scheduled in Ukraine as early as October 2017, ahead of normal schedule. Poroshenko knows he can only continue robbing his country blind, getting fat of the people’s tragedy, if he remains in power.
Recall what I said in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 3 OLIGARCH WARS – ever since the Kiev Maidan 2014, all Ukraine oligarchs lost money and some are near, or in, bankruptcy. All, except Poroshenko.
2. Poroshenko is US Deep State / globalist cabal agent, who does what he is told. He takes orders directly from the US – ok, maybe also a few from Germany/EU. If you think something has changed since Trump was elected — think again.
If you think I am just saying that — you know I never do. My intel tells me the exact numbers: there are between 800 and 900 US advisers pulling the strings in Kiev and whispering stuff into Poroshenko’s ear, including CIA, military, economic, political, media, PR and cultural.
According to my local Kiev intel, there also are — very sadly — Bulgarian advisers. This seems to be a newer addition, just showing how sold out the Bulgarian government really is. My conclusion is that Bulgarian advisers are sent to Kiev by their US bosses for the same reason Ukraine had to be subverted: to deepen and enlarge the rift between Russia and those countries that are closest to her culturally. In the past 3 years there have been ongoing protests and discontent in Bulgaria about NATO bases and US presence, while Russian business and tourism left. There has been an aspiration in Bulgaria to get back closer to Russia. The population of Bulgaria is being gradually remolded to forget its history, roots and Slavic cultural affinities — in order to reorient it slowly but surely towards the West.
The same process is happening in the small Balkans countries, such as Montenegro and FYRO Macedonia. The goal in all cases is to push out any naturally occurring cultural closeness to Russia and Russian influence, replacing it with everything Western.
Ukraine is the biggest victim of the yang aggressive West. I explain my Great Earth Shift — Great Balancer Theory and discuss how the yang West operates and how Russia the Great Balancer is now struggling to rebalance the world in new EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 2 INVERTED COLLAPSE.
But not all is sad and depressing. We have a huge and bold breakthrough in Moldova, which is gradually turning back to its roots, although the struggle will continue for some time. The new President of Moldova Igor Dodon has made a big splash by explaining during St. Petersburg Economic Forum how the West tried to subvert and enslave his country. More on that soon – stay tuned!
I had a whole EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8 BLACK SEA GAMBIT dedicated to Moldova, Pridnestrovie and northern Black Sea/Odessa region. In that report I predicted that ‘Moldova would be in a state of UNEASY AND DELICATE EQUILIBRIUM between pro-Romania / pro-EU forces vs. pro-Russian forces until at least 2017.’ This is exactly what we are seeing happen! If you have an interest in the region, do check out this very thorough and unusual report! Info you’ll find there you won’t find anywhere else — even less so in English!

How bitterly ironic it is, that having lost ~28 million people (and counting) over the last 25 years, Ukraine is still pushing the “Golodomor” hoax.

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

EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT (He who controls Black Sea controls Russia’s soft underbelly)
Better than a thriller…
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 8
Lada Ray’s Message
This Earth Shift Report is in part geopolitical analysis, in part futurist trendcast, and in part investigative report.
But what really sets it apart is that reading it, you’ll feel at times that you are in the midst of a geopolitical or spy thriller, and at other times, as if you’ve landed in an apocalyptic sci-fi!
Because the geographic position of the many areas we discuss is of crucial importance to the big geopolitical game being played around Black Sea, this report includes a number of maps, which will help my readers orient and anchor themselves in the convoluted sea of events and changes. Each map is explained and tied to the narrative, which will greatly enrich your reading experience!
The fact that I myself am intimately familiar with those parts will put you straight in the middle of an action. But that’s not all! Added are several chilling, shocking, revealing, and at times, hugely entertaining, stories and videos that make this Earth Shift Report better than a thriller!
Throughout this report I offer you a challenge:
Let’s solve this puzzle!
Why is Saakashvili, ousted ex-prez of Georgia and Odessa governor, so cocky with Kiev elites he seemingly should be grateful to? Why did he say he was aiming higher than the post of Ukraine PM, or even president?
The answer to these questions will bring us to the very heart of the issue: why is Black Sea so important geopolitically?
Why are there so much struggle and competition around Black Sea?
Why is US so intent on turning Odessa into its mega-base?

Following the February Ukraine coup, on March 16th, 2014, Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and reunite with Russia. 95% to 97% voted for reunification, depending on the area. Simultaneously, a referendum whether to accept Crimea and Sevastopol as two new subjects of the Russian Federation took place in Russia. 95% of Russians said ‘yes.’
On March 18-19, Crimea and Sevastopol joined the Russian Federation as two newest subjects. The transition went smoothly and peacefully, not a single shot was fired and only two casualties were registered on both sides, shot by a provocateur Ukrainian sniper sent there to attempt inciting violence (by the old CIA playbook).
At the time, 16,000 Russian troops were stationed in Crimea, based on the Black Sea Fleet Sevastopol base lease agreement with Ukraine. Simultaneously, 20,000 Ukrainian troops were stationed on the peninsula as well. Out of these 20,000, about 18,000 Ukraine troops pledged allegiance to Russia, while only 2,000 chose to leave back to Ukraine. They were allowed to leave peacefully and with dignity.
As a result of professional actions of the Russian troops, fleet and politicians, they received a nickname ‘vezhlivie lyudi’ directly translated as ‘the polite people,’ aka, ‘real gentlemen.’
However, none of that mattered. Russia was accused by the West of aggression against poor, weak Ukraine and annexation of part of Ukraine’s territory, Putin was called Hitler and crippling sanctions were imposed on Russia.
The West supported the bloody ukro-nazi Kiev junta against Russia, Crimea and against the people of Donbass, who were also fighting for their independence from the regime that wanted to take away and rewrite their memory, their history and their way of life. The West also supported ukro-nazis and Ukraine ultra-nationalists in their quest to create a fascist state with thousands of political prisoners, torture, kidnappings and lynching, where the rights of the largest, Russian-speaking part of the population were denied.
The West, together with its stooges in Kiev, did everything to isolate and humiliate Russia and its leaders. Vladimir Putin was always the most visible target. But many others were targeted, as well. For example, in 2015 the Head of the Russian Duma Sergei Naryshkin was illegally denied visa to Helsinki, where he was invited to the anniversary of the Helsinki Accords, of which Russia, as the legal heir to the USSR, was a founding member; The Head of the Soviet of the Federation chamber of the Russian Duma Valentina Matvienko in 2015 was illegally denied USA visa, and was unable to come to New York, where she was invited to speak at the UN General Assembly and at the global inter-parliamentary symposium. The exceedingly ultra-nationalist and Russophobic Poland snubbed Putin for an invitation to the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz – the camp that the Soviet Army liberated along with all of Poland!
For 2 years, Ukraine, US and EU did everything to sabotage and stunt Crimea. In 2014 Kiev ukro-nazis destroyed the Russian-built (like most everything that ever was built in Ukraine) North Crimean Canal, which supplied with badly needed water most of the peninsula, leaving it in dire straits.
In 2015, Ukraine began the food blockade of Crimea; in December 2015 Ukraine, aided by some foreign governments (I will disclose who in the upcoming ESR9: CRIMEAN AGENDA) blew up power lines and left 2.5 million people and the entire peninsula without power during the winter.
Two years later, Russia and Crimea survived all the attempts at humiliation, blockade, attacks and sanctions, emerging with flying colors.
As a matter of fact, Russia’s prestige and clout are the highest they have been since the breakup of the USSR. Putin’s global and all-Russian popularity is through the roof at 90%+ approval. Russia’s Syria operation further advanced this clout, making Russia the one and only go-to peacemaker in the Middle East (read upcoming Syria withdrawal article, ESR5 & ESR7).
Call it karma or justice… Let’s compare that to what has happened in the past 2 years to those who tried to isolate and humiliate Russia and Putin. Obama is a disappointment even to his formerly ardent supporters – and as I predicted last year, democrats will pay dearly for their behavior towards Russia during these elections (more on that in my future US elections prediction). Australian and Canadian PMs, who were nasty to Putin and Russia, are gone (does anyone even remember their names?..). Extremely popular before 2014, Merkel is hated in her own country and abroad, and I project her to gradually lose her remaining support soon.
Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk has 0% approval rating; Poroshenko, who has been drowning his sorrows in vodka, holds no power and is hated just as universally; Ukraine has made a nuisance of itself, always complaining about Russia and begging for handouts, which both Europeans and Americans are sick of hearing.
Someone tweeted me recently that Ukraine filed a complaint with WTO that Russia is preventing them from trading with her. This insane asylum, this ‘idiocracy+’ in Kiev, suddenly woke up to realize that they needed trade with Russia after all, since EU imposed strict quotas on Ukraine imports as their rightful reward for signing the ‘EU association and slavery agreement.’ Ukraine’s complaint to WTO about mean Russia, who doesn’t want to trade with them, comes after Ukraine itself broke all ties with Russia, joined sanctions, blockaded Crimea, banned Russian air traffic and blockaded truck traffic, called Russia aggressor, announced that Ukraine was at war with Russia, threatened Russians and Russian-speakers in Ukraine, and applauded ukro-nazi attacks on Russian embassy and consulates.
Happy Holiday, dear Russians!
Happy Holiday, Sevastopol and Crimea!
Hope the rest of the territories occupied by ukro-nazis and their foreign masters
will also celebrate their liberation soon!

What wouldn’t they do to sell to the populace an increase in Swedish military spending. What wouldn’t they do to drag Sweden into NATO, in the last push to justify the alliance’s existence and to continue encircling Russia with more bases!
Truly, the ‘West can’t live without enemies; this is a part of its self-perception.’ Well said by Swedish peace researcher Jan Oberg: below is his video interview that makes perfect sense, unlike the rhetoric of his government.
‘In a few years Sweden may be engaged in a war with a “qualified opponent” after two centuries of peace, a senior Swedish commander has told soldiers in an internal brochure.’
By ‘qualified opponent’ this, not very qualified, Swedish general means – who do you think! – of course, Russia!
Incidentally, Russia’s military spending constitutes only 8% of NATO’s.
Russia’s military spending is 1/10th of the USA’s.
Silly question: who is the aggressor in this scenario?
On another note, Poland has volunteered to host new and additional US bases and arms on its territory. When asked why, Polish talking heads and officials say this is not directed against Russia, that Russia presently isn’t being thought of as a threat by Poland. This, in fact, is more of a protection against Germany (a fellow NATO member); additionally, this is done for economic, not political, reasons. Those naive enough to believe this bull’s crap in chef’s salad – raise your hands! Hmm… Don’t see any. Anyone? Anyone?!!
Go to all EARTH SHIFT REPORTS!
My readers who follow me regularly know that I’ve dedicated a big part of 2014 to trying to talk some sense into the EU politicians and Europeans in general. I wrote countless articles explaining how harmful it was for the EU to continue as a US slave, and how necessary it was for the EU to make a turnaround towards cooperation with Russia. By 2015, I became so disgusted with European ‘leaders’ that I stopped talking about that.
However, to the surprise of some of my readers, I continued being long-term mildly optimistic about the EU turnaround, saying that it would have to happen sooner or later because there really was no other way for the future to play out.
Sooner or later EU would have to deal with Ukraine’s bills they couldn’t carry on paying (it is happening now); with the influx of armed ukro-nazi thugs on EU territory (may happen soon as Ukraine continues to disintegrate); the aftermath of sanctions forced on EU and Russia by the US and corrupt European politicians could become unbearable (farmers all over EU are protesting as we speak).
I also said from the very start of 2014 that just like with the Georgia/S. Ossetia crisis of 2008, the 2014 Ukraine would also blow over. They would yell and scream for a couple of years, and then start forgetting about it, turning to business as usual. They’d eventually tire of anti-Russian statements, remembering that, after all, EU and Russia did share one continent and trade between the two was too significant to jeopardize.
It turned out that the shock of Syrian refugees became the event that broke the camel’s back. Oh yes, the US prostitutes such as Merkel and the bought-and-paid-for EU MSM still puff their cheeks in the direction of Russia. But many of EU’s elites, as much as ordinary citizens, approve of Russia’s actions in Syria. The approval of Putin’s actions is through the roof, the fact being diligently hushed up.
Bought-and-paid-for or not, EU politicians have to start responding. And the turn begins.
The desperate need for a turnaround in European politics was crystal clear to me and my smart readers from the start of the 2014 Kiev maidan and coup. But EU politicians are awfully slow. Almost two years later, EU governments and individuals are finally timidly starting to see Poroshenko and the ukro-nazi junta for what they are. Poroshenko was again called on the carpet, this time in Paris, and admonished personally by Hollande, Merkel and Putin for non-compliance with Minsk agreements. Again, the meeting lasted for four or five hours, while Poroshenko was left humiliated waiting for his turn as Putin talked in private with Hollande and Merkel.
But on the global stage Ukraine events have now been relegated to the second tier of importance . The Syrian refugee crisis takes the cake. EU has never expected such massive inflow of refugees. More so, EU’s top bras have never expected such fight between countries regarding refugee passage and quotas. EU is strained to the core and is showing cracks, while the economic crisis makes countries question their participation in the EU. Crisis shows that the only unifying factor in the EU was ‘having good times and prospering together.’ The good times are gone, and so is unity.
This reminds me of Napoleon, who was the first to voice the idea that Europe should be ruled from one center, thus being considered the father of the EU. His multinational army only held together while it was advancing and winning. The moment hardship set in and the mighty Napoleon began losing to the Russians, his army disintegrated like a soap bubble.
The pro-Russian moods in the EU are growing, despite all the resistance by the US and anti-Russian/pro-US lobby. Pro-US moods are waning, and rapidly, although it is still far from reaching the level of real change. We can be assured that US itself and USA’s Trojan Horses in the EU will continue putting enormous pressure on Europe to toe the line.
For how this works see companion post: Bulgaria Returning to Native Shores: ‘Thank you Russia – 1878 and 1945’
EU may have not liked so much the latest pronouncements from the insane asylum formerly called Ukraine. During his UN speech drunk Poroshenko announced that “Russia is attempting to destabilize ISIS,” which I think embarrassed every remaining sane Ukrainian on the face of the Earth. Later Poroshenko proposed that Ukraine should gather data on families of Russian pilots in Syria in order to pass them on to ISIS so they would terrorize these families. Anton Gerashchenko, former advisor to Poroshenko and present Ukraine’s interior ministry advisor, announced that Ukraine should send troops to help ISIS take revenge on Russia.
I think even the sold-out EU politicians would experience nausea listening to such lunatics, who now scare to death many of their former supporters and maidan instigators from Poland, Brussels, UK and Germany.
However, for the anti-muslim-immigration countries such as Hungary, Poland, Czechia, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia and Bulgaria, nothing has worked as well as the cold shower of the mass Middle Eastern migration. Rhetoric towards Russia changed overnight once they realized Russia could quickly accomplish what US and their own NATO were unable and unwilling to do for years: get rid of ISIS and stabilize Syria.
Again, like 70 years ago (WWII), 130 years ago (Ottoman Empire), and 200 years ago (Napoleon), Russia has to rescue these countries or territories, which in good times seem to forget everything that Russia has done for them, betraying their savior on a whim, once someone dangles a bigger and shinier carrot. In some cases, such as the traditionally pro-Russian Bulgaria and Slovakia, we are talking about US-bred russophobic elites installed as puppet governments, and equally puppet MSM. In cases of Hungary and Czechia we actually have relatively pro-Russian heads of state, who are surrounded by the same US-grown russophobic elites.
Out of all the above countries I want to single out POLAND, who for the longest time worked the hardest to damage Russia and whose not very intelligent policies turned it into the biggest US Manchurian Candidate and Trojan Horse in Europe.
It’s hard to turn around the EU. But the process of the EU turning away from the US and towards Russia and China is unavoidable and historically predetermined, unless EU wants to go down together with the mothership. They don’t seem to desire such outcome…
It will be a treacherous and lengthy process, as I’ve predicted in 2014. But this epic turnaround, when completed, will finally re-unite Eurasia, which still remains one continent with one single unified space, the need for cooperation and common goals, despite what some may want you believe.
So, the turn of this huge, misshapen ship has begun, despite the resistance. It is being signaled by the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who has said in a surprise speech in Germany: “Europe must treat Russia with more decency, improve the relationship, and not let EU policies be dictated by Washington.”

Pro-US and Anti-Russian Japan: Eyewitness Overview and Predictions (Striking parallels between Japan and Poland)
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS RE. JAPAN
Politically, I do not foresee any improvement between Russia and Japan at this time. Economically, there is a little bit of positive, mutually interested development.
The propaganda has very deeply penetrated Japanese society. The future of bilateral relations is murky and uncertain – that’s why Patricia is seeing a confusing picture: it is undecided and confusing; it’s one step forward, two steps sideways. Distrust by average Japanese towards Russia will continue, heated up by the US-supported MSM and political propaganda.
I have to say, average Russians also don’t feel so hot towards Japan. These are very old suspicions. Pity – there is so much both Russia and Japan could accomplish together and learn from each other! Attempts are being made by Russia, but all this goes nowhere. Russia and Japan still don’t have a signed peace treaty after WWII. Imagine that!
The way Japanese MSM and politicians present it, Russia is the biggest enemy, while it was actually their ‘official protector’ the US that dropped A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and still has bases on Japanese territory. In favor of creating the image of the arch-villain out of Russia they even forget their other eternal arch-enemy No. 1.5 – China. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad!
I am not advocating Japan becoming an enemy of the US – just the opposite. For Japan it’s crucial to make up with all neighbors, including Chinese, Vietnamese and Russians, while maintaining good relations with everyone else. The thing is, historically speaking Japan is considered the biggest bully and aggressor in Asia, where just about every country distrusts and has a grudge against them. This is why Japan doesn’t feel like an Eastern nation, preferring to side with the West. No one really accepts them in the East, and their own policies and uncompromising, arrogant attitudes towards neighbors only reinforce that alienation.
From this perspective, Japan is a perfect vibrational match to the USA. No wonder they are such good friends, despite all the latest frictions. Some of the friction is for show, while certain agreement on issues still exists. The rest is Japanese politicians playing off the populist nationalistic sentiment of their countrymen. Either way, Japanese politicians are hardly doing any favors for the long-term development of their country.
US will continue keeping Japan under tight control for at least another 5-7 years, or more (depends on economic interests and how soon Europe swings to Russian side). Russian – Japanese business will be developing a little, as it has, because it’s mutually beneficial. But nationalism will persist and authorities will continue playing anti-Russian and anti-Chinese cards to keep their power.
PM Abe is really inconsequential. It doesn’t matter who will come after him as they will act like twins. This is the time for ANY PM who is nationalistic; yells about returning the Kuril Islands (um… excuse me, ‘northern territories’) – which, by the way, will never happen; escalates military spending, while behind the scenes takes orders from bosses across the ocean, etc.
Kuril Islands and Sakhalin were Russian territories before the 20th century, and they became part of Japan after Russia lost Russo-Japanese war in 1904. As a result of WWII, Russia got the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin back as part of Japanese reparations after Japan lost on the side of Hitler.
It is important to understand one crucial thing about Japanese politicians. It is imperative for them to scream about Kuril Islands and Russia as aggressor in order to divert attention from the true problems inside the country. And these are: 1. the de-facto occupation by the US, complete with US naval bases; 2. Fukushima consequences; 3. economic situation and debt problem; 4. unresolved historic issues, including Hiroshima; 5. social dissatisfaction of a very closed-up society.
Of course Japanese MSM, like MSM almost everywhere in the world, is under the US thumb.
Former Japanese PM Hatoyama is known for his recent surprise visit to Crimea, which he accomplished despite the heat such visit drew in Japan. He is a surprisingly decent and brave guy for a Japanese politician, but he has no chance right now. Maybe in a few years. Being thought of as associated with Russia in any way (even though there is really no association) only hurts his chances of being heard. Pity, but this is the reality.
Still, what Hatoyama has done wasn’t only brave, but also was necessary to shutter the so-called “unified Western front” in relation to Crimea. Actually, his very courageous feat caused a European shift. Since then, a French parliamentary delegation has visited Crimea, and I believe a German Bundestag delegation is next.
Striking parallels between Japan and Poland you would never imagine existed!
In some ways, Japan as far as its political composition and views go, reminds me of Poland. But I think even in Poland there are more people who see the world situation with clearer eyes. This is because more Poles speak Russian and still remember the old days when Russia/USSR did absolutely everything to extend the hand of friendship to Poland, forgetting the old grudges.
You all know my view on this: perhaps the USSR and Russia have overdone the forgiveness thing. Not only the USSR liberated Poland in 1945 at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives, but Stalin also made sure Poland received a huge chunk of German territory after WWII, as part of German reparations. USSR also saw to it that Polish economy did well, investing resources and money USSR should have kept for its own after-the-war reconstruction and development.
Meanwhile before the war, Poland under its virtual dictator Pilsudski had been a pretty vicious aggressor. Using Hitler’s aggression as a distraction, Poland tried to bite off pieces of Czechoslovakia, Austria, and any country they could get their hands on. This was Polish attitude historically, including attempts to invade Russia to replace Russian tsars with usurpers. Not to mention that since 18-19th century Poland was consistently engaged in molding Malorussia, aka, Malorossia (known today as Ukraine) into anti-Russia.
The USSR, preferring to sweep the truth under the rug, caused Poland to feel they didn’t have to pay the price for past misdeeds, encouraging in turn more arrogance, playing victim, and bolder aggression, which we are observing today.
As we know, Japan did pay a dear price in the form of territories, lives and humiliation, for the WWII and pre-war aggression, as did Germany. In that, Japan and Poland are very different.
Poland and Japan are also very different in terms of culture.
Finally, Japan is a much more economically developed country, with infinitely larger economy, which once was the engine of global growth, and substantially higher standard of living than Poland. (But both countries are very similar in a sense of embracing the Western lifestyle and capitalist economic principles based on US ‘advice’ – Japan after WWII and Poland after the breakup of the USSR – and paying for their capitalist development by raking in insurmountable level of debt, which is now coming back to haunt them.)
Yet, both Poland and Japan, being so different in just about every sense, are:
- Thoroughly and willingly under the US thumb;
- Have a lot of historic distrust relative to ALL neighbors;
- This causes them to rely on alliance with the US against closest neighbors, US being the only country their selective memory forgives for any wrongdoing;
- Both countries have substantial territorial disputes with more than one neighbor;
- MSM/politicians in both are engaged in pretty vicious anti-Russian propaganda, while being supported by the US, and in fact, serving as US Trojan Horses in their respective regions;
- Additional very strong countries in their vicinity, which they regard with jealousy and extreme distrust: Germany for Poland and China for Japan;
- Both countries secretly dream about restoring their failed empires.
I can tell you with absolute confidence – this is a way to nowhere.
Economy will eventually cause both countries to reconsider and back off. But before that happens, both Japan and Poland – so easily manipulated due to their ulterior motives, such as nationalism and imperial ambitions – will cause a lot of trouble for Russia, Eurasia and for themselves.
My QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS will give you an additional layer of clarity!
Japan as a whole country presently calibrates at: 150 – anger; Chi: 180 – pride
Tokyo as a whole city calibrates at: 180 – pride; Chi 189 – pride.
Fukushima situation in reality calibrates at: 110 – fear; Chi 85 – grief — in other words, real disaster; although it’s better than a couple of years ago.
Real state of Japanese economy calibrates at: 95 – grief. See, THIS is the truth – this is what they are really trying to hide by yelling about Russia as enemy No. 1! Japanese economy isn’t doing so hot.
Real state of Japanese-Russian relations: 150 – anger
State of China-Japan relations: 85 – grief
Real state of Japanese-US relations: 198 – yearning/striving. Isn’t that interesting! What are they striving and yearning for? To be accepted by the US as equals? Or they are desperately trying to keep the front, while the deep-seated cracks start appearing?

P.S. A little reminder from Lada Ray Blog that…
As part of my 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON, I am posting this excellent translation of a Russian article by our reader and blogger Nemo (Stanislav).
(You can see all posts under category: 70 Years of Great Victory)
Read original at: Stanislavs.org
On a personal note, I know what would have happened in my life if that’s all Russians did:
I, FOR ONE, WOULD HAVE GROWN UP KNOWING MY GRANDPARENTS!
See my related article:
Below is a translation from Russian of two historical articles, published in Argumenty i Fakty on the 3rd of April 2015. The main article was written by Georgij Zotov. A subsequent expert opinion is presented by historian Rudolph Pihoj.
On the eve of the 70th anniversary of Victory “AiF” tried to imagine: what would the map of Europe look like, had USSR not given thousands of kilometres of territories as present to those countries that now call us occupiers. And if they would give up these lands now.
Wroclaw – one of the most touristic cities of Poland. Crowds with cameras are everywhere, there’s not a spare spot in the expensive restaurants, taxi drivers ask for ungodly prices. At the entrance to the marketplace there waves a banner saying “Wroclaw – a real Polish charm!”. All seems fine, but as early as in May 1945 Wroclaw was called Breslau and had not belonged to Poland for 600 consecutive(!) years before that. The Victory Day, now referred by Warsaw as “the beginning of the communist tyranny,” added to Poland the German Silesia, Pomerania, as well as 80% of East Prussia. No one mentions this now: in other words that was a tyranny, but we’d still grab that land. “AiF” observer decided to understand, what would the map of Europe look like now, if our former brothers in the East were left without the help of the “occupiers”?
Whole cities as gifts
– In 1945 Poland received the cities of Breslau, Gdansk, Zielona Gora, Legnica, Szczecin, – says Maciej Wisniewski, a Polish freelance journalist. – USSR also gave the territory of Bialystok; with the mediation of Stalin, we acquired a disputed with Czechoslovakia city Kłodzko. Nevertheless, they believe here: the partitioning of Poland by the Molotov – Ribbentrop Pact, when the Soviet Union took the Western Belarus and Western Ukraine, was unfair, but the transfer by Stalin to Poland of Silesia and Pomerania is absolutely fair, you can not dispute this. It is fashionable to say now that Russians did not liberate, but conquered. However, it turns into an interesting kind of occupation, when Poland got for free a quarter of Germany: and on top of it, hundreds of thousands of Soviet soldiers shed their blood for this land. Even the GDR resisted, not wanting to give Szczecin to the Poles – the dispute over the city was finally solved only in 1956, under pressure from the USSR.
Apart from the Poles, the Baltic States express a strong indignation by the “occupation”. Well, it’s worth remembering: the current capital – Vilnius – was also presented to Lithuania by the USSR; by the way, the Lithuanian population of Vilnius was then… barely 1%, with Polish being the majority. USSR returned to the Republic the city of Klaipeda – Prussian Memel, owned by Lithuanians in the 1923-1939, and annexed by the Third Reich. Already back in 1991 the Lithuanian leadership condemned the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, but no one returned neither Vilnius to Poland, nor Klaipeda to Germany.
Ukraine, which by the Prime Minister Yatsenyuk’s words, declared itself “a victim of Soviet aggression on a par with German,” is unlikely to give to the Poles its western part with Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Ternopil (these cities were included by the “aggressor” into the UkSSR in 1939), Chernivtsi region to Romania (ceded to the UkSSR on August 2, 1940), and Transcarpathia to Hungary or Slovakia – received on June 29, 1945. Romanian politicians do not stop discussions about the validity of the “annexation” of Moldova by the Soviet Union in 1940. Of course, it’s long forgotten that after the war, it was thanks to Soviets that Romanians got back the province of Transylvania, which Hitler took in favour of Hungary. Bulgaria, by the mediation of Stalin himself, kept South Dobrudja (formerly the possession of that very same Romania), something that was confirmed by the treaty of 1947. But now Romanian and Bulgarian newspapers do not say a single word about it.
They don’t say ‘Thank you’
– After 1991, Czech Republic removed the monuments to the Soviet soldiers, and announced that Victory Day marks the replacement of one dictatorship with another, – says Alexander Zeman, a Czech historian. – However, it was thanks to the insistence of the Soviet Union, that Sudetenland was returned to Czechoslovakia, with the cities of Karlovy Vary and Liberec, where 92% of the population were Germans. Recall that at the Munich Conference of 1938 the Western powers supported the annexation of the Sudetenland by Germany – only the Soviet Union protested. At the same time the Poles grabbed from Czechoslovakia the Cieszyn region and did not want to give it back after the war, insisting on a referendum. Under the pressure of the USSR on Poland, supporting the the Czechoslovak position, a treaty was signed – Tesín returned to the Czechs, secured by the agreement of 1958. No one says ‘Thank you’ to the Soviet Union for this help – apparently the Russians are in debt to us with the very fact of their existence.
In general, we gave away all the lands, not forgetting anyone – and for this they now spit in our faces. In addition, few people know about the pogroms, committed by the new government on “the returned areas” – 14 million Germans were expelled from Pomerania and the Sudetenland. While the residents of Königsberg (which became Soviet Kaliningrad) moved to the GDR over the period of 6 years (until 1951), Poland and Czechoslovakia giving 2-3 months, while many Germans were given only 24 hours to get ready, being allowed to take only a suitcase of things, and forced to walk on foot for hundreds of kilometres. “You know, it’s not worth mentioning it, – they timidly point out to me at City Hall of Szczecin. – Such things spoil our good relations with Germany.” Well, yes, we get poked in the face for every little thing, while it’s a sin to offend the Germans.
What interests me personally in this matter is the question of justice. Things have already reached schizophrenia: when a person in Eastern Europe says that the Soviet victory over the Nazis is the liberation, he is regarded as either a fool or a traitor. Guys, let’s be honest. If the consequences of May 9, 1945 are so bad, illegal and terrible, all the other actions of the USSR are similarly no better. How could the solution by those who brought tyranny into your land be good? Therefore Poland should give Silesia, Pomerania and Prussia back to the Germans, Ukraine should return their western part to the Poles, Chernovtsy to Romanians, Transcarpathia to Hungary, Lithuania should abandon Vilnius and Klaipeda, Romania should give up Transylvania, the Czech Republic – the Sudetenland and Tesin, Bulgaria – Dobrogea. And then everything will be completely honest. But what do we have? They slander us for all it’s worth, accuse us of all mortal sins, but at the same time clutch with a stranglehold onto the Stalin’s “gifts”. Sometimes I feel like imagining: I’m curious what would have happen should USSR push Hitler back exactly to its borders and not look further into Europe after that? What would have now been left of the territories of those countries, that today, before the 70th anniversary of the Victory, are calling their liberation by Soviet troops for “occupation”? The answer is, however, extremely simple – bits and pieces.

How Europe was partitioned after 1945
Expert opinion by historian Rudolph Pihoj
– There is a half-legendary story that during Churchill’s visit to Moscow in 1944, he and Stalin drew the map of postwar partitioning of Europe during a dinner on plain napkin. Eyewitnesses claimed that the “document” contained a series of numbers, which (in percent) reflected the degree of the future influence of the Soviet Union and the West in different regions: Bulgaria and Romania – 90 to 10, Greece – 10 to 90, Yugoslavia – equally …
That napkin was not preserved, but in principle the issue of changing of the borders in Europe was settled by the “big three” – Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill – during the Tehran and Yalta conferences. USSR adhered to the concept that was developed already back in 1944 by the Deputy People’s Commissar for Foreign Affairs, Ivan Maisky. It implied that the Soviet Union should establish such a configuration of borders, which would ensure the safety of the country for at least 25, and preferably 50 years.
In accordance with the concept developed by Maisky, USSR annexed the former German Memel, which became Lithuanian Klaipeda. The following cities became Soviet: Königsberg (Kaliningrad), Pillai (Baltijsk) and Tilsit (Soviet), which now constitute the Kaliningrad region of Russia. Also, the USSR secured the part of the territory of Finland, that was attached as a result of the “Winter War”. In general, the Soviet policy of those years was characterised by a surprising consistency in addressing regional issues. The only thing that could not be done – seizing the Black Sea straits, although this issue was discussed in Tehran and Yalta. While Port Arthur again, as in the early twentieth century, became an outpost of the country in the Far East, not to mention the southern part of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, which Russia lost as a result of the Russian-Japanese war.

Plan to Destabilize Russia Failed; Kiev Regime Funnels Resources Into Nazi Western Ukraine and Sells off Strategic Food Reserves
My predictions about Ukraine are developing exactly as expected (details in PREDICTIONS and articles linked on the Predictions page). In 2013-14, while Russia was looking the other way during the Sochi Olympics, the US/West planned to destabilize Russia via Ukraine. The plan included the takeover of the geopolitically super-important Crimea, turning it into the oversized US/NATO base and kicking out the Russian Black Sea fleet. It also included the takeover of the entire Ukraine, culminating in the creation of anti-Russia on Russian borders. US was planning to destabilize and subsequently destroy Russia with the hands of the Russian-speaking, but thoroughly brainwashed Ukrainians – and make no mistake, Ukrainians are in fact Russians (more: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History).
Despite long-term and careful planning, despite $5 bln spent by the US to ‘subvert Ukraine’ as admitted by Victoria Nuland, all the above plans have failed utterly. The Kiev junta is afraid, mortally afraid. Many junta participants have already left the country, including oligarch Kolomoysky, who’s in Switzerland since last year; Zaporozhie elites, most of whom are in London; families of Poroshenko and many other top-tier Kiev politicians and oligarchs.
The end is nearing; maidan-3 is expected any moment; the total collapse of the country is underway. The process I have been predicting since early 2014 is gaining momentum.
Plan B is being executed by the Kiev junta together with their Western handlers. The questions are: What is this Plan B and can it succeed?
Thanks to readers Paul and Nemo for providing great links and quotes!
Paul Plane, Host of the Plane Truth Show on Time Monk Radio, says: “Not saying it is true, but I have read statements that the Kiev regime is basically trying to funnel as much spending as possible to Galicia. Galicia will, one imagines, either become independent or join Poland, so it makes sense to put all the problems and debts on Kiev and all the assets in Lvov. A bit from a Pravda article. In an interview with the prime minister of the breakaway Carpathian republic of Ruthenia Pyotr Getsko, the following was said:
“It is clear that the truce will be thwarted very soon. There are prerequisites that have already been recognized officially that Kiev is no longer the center of all investment in Ukraine. According to statistic reports, in the second half of 2014 the main flow of investment has moved to three regions of western Ukraine – Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Ternopil regions. Therefore, statements from Klimkin and company do not mean anything. I think that they have already received an order, so they are wimping out Ukraine.
“Slowly but surely, Kiev is losing its role by moving capitals to those regions. In the Galician regions, the volume of construction and investments has been growing lately. The rest of Ukraine pales in comparison at this point. This is their vector. They work for Galicia now in an attempt to hang all the debts on the rest of Ukraine. Therefore, the Kiev government that has never become a legitimate government does not negotiate. Those, who created Maidan 1 and Maidan 2 escape from Kiev. Families of the top administration of Ukraine escape from the country as well.
“Poland is preparing for the integration of its former land – three Galician regions. The bottom line is that the trend is already visible. The plan to shatter Russia has failed, and the USA may decide to continue applying some of Maidan-related technologies, as well as Ukrainian nationalists in other countries of Eastern Europe.
“All these battalions, including Aidar and Azov, may go to Europe after Ukraine. Those people know what bloodshed is, they have learned to kill, loot and rape. They will not stop in Lviv, so they will go further to Europe via Poland or through Hungary, Slovakia.
“There will be a war in Europe, rather than in Russia. As for Russia, Putin has made all preventive decisions necessary.”
Nemo says: “Lada, you predicted a new revolution in Ukraine this coming spring… Well, the reason for it might just have materialised. Ukrainian strategic food reserves are empty – stolen or squandered. The following article, translated to English describes the situation. The link to the Russian source is in the translation. Ukraine’s Strategic Food Reserve…Runs Out Of Food http://fortruss.blogspot.de/2015/02/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-x-none_98.html. So this is well the answer to the “What’s Next?” part your article’s title.”
Both comments are from my recent article: New Predictions: Gazprom Gears Up for Gas Shut-off to Ukraine. What’s Next?
What both Paul and Nemo are saying is true. Since last summer, I’ve been hearing rumors and eyewitness reports, regarding some of the strategic grain reserves and other valuable goods being transferred to Galicia (Galichina) in western Ukraine, the hotbed and birth place of ukro-nazism. Construction materials and assets are being ripped off East and South and moved to Galichina.
It was in the three oblasts of Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Ternopil (Lvov, Ivano-Frankovsk and Ternopol), where the dreaded WWII SS Division Galichina and others had been formed. These SS divisions were headed by ideologues of ukro-nazism Bandera and Shukhevich; they were responsible for executions and torture of hundreds of thousands of Russians, Ukrainians, Jews and Poles.
People throughout Ukraine have been observing huge grain trains moving to western Ukraine. Same goes for other strategic food reserves. However, the grain reserve is the most important food reserve Ukraine always must store in abundance. Bread is the main staple in Ukraine, same as in Russia (proving once again Ukrainians being the same culture as Russians).
Second half of the strategic grain reserve was quietly sold abroad to raise emergency cash. As I said in above-referenced article, Ukraine has been bankrupt since last year; however, via different corruption schemes, through Western loans and civil war, they had been hiding this fact. One of the ways to conceal a bankruptcy was to perform a fire sale of anything they could still sell.
Among other things, this also concerned the gold reserve that was shipped off to the US last summer, including the priceless Scythian gold collection (search my FT posts and YT video on that). This also includes the national Ukraine foreign currency reserve that was partially spent on weapons to fight Donbass, as well as on overpriced heating coal from S. Africa and to repay Gazprom. The rest was stolen by politicians and oligarchs.
When they couldn’t sell anything else after severing ties with Russia and destroying the country’s economy, they tapped into the unthinkable – the strategic food reserves. First, they removed these reserves from the areas where the ‘undesirables’ lived – the south and east of the country. Then, they stripped the center and north as well.
The only place where nothing was removed and where more was added was Galicia.
The above is consistent with what Poroshenko, this ukro-nazi lite, said recently. He has said that the hard-core ukro-nazi Galicia is where the ‘cream of the nation resides’ and that it is the title region and core population of Ukraine. In fact, the culture, mentality and even language of Galichina are very different from the rest of Ukraine. Some Ukrainians consider it practically a foreign country.
In addition to shipping food reserves to Galicia, witnesses also report that grain reserves were brought by trainload to the ports of Mariupol for Eastern Ukraine and Odessa, for Southern Ukraine, and shipped off via Black Sea to unknown destinations.
For a while I’ve also been warning that Poland is trying to chop off as big of a chunk of Ukraine as possible, while everyone in the West is distracted by the civil war and busy vilifying Russia, and Russia is busy fending off the attacks. I also mentioned that, more quietly, Romania is trying to do the same with Chernovtsi (also in western Ukraine), and part, or all, of Odessa oblast. Hungary, even more quietly, has designs on Zakarpatie (Transcarpathia).
In New Predictions: Gazprom Gears Up for Gas Shut-off to Ukraine. What’s Next?, we already discussed that Ukraine economy unfortunately will be destroyed and it will have to be rebuilt from scratch later, when normalcy returns to this territory. This also concerns the strategic food reserves, staggering debt, and the fact that the population is getting more destitute by the day. Since Ukrainians refused to pay attention for the past 23 years, the awakening has to happen the hard way.
Those who stole Ukraine’s resources are already either in London, New York or Geneva (such as Kolomoysky), or have their planes on the standby. On the other hand, Galicia ukro-nazis and armed thugs are looting what hasn’t been stolen by the oligarchs and politicians, dragging everything they can to Lvov, Ternopol and Ivan-Frankovsk. And yes, they are also investing heavily in Galichina, while saddling the rest of the country with debt. They hope it’ll work, but it won’t. After all this is over, there will be investigations and international tribunal, as a result of which, Galicia will most likely have to pay reparations.
Let me remind my readers that these three oblasts are historically the least productive and poorest agricultural areas of Ukraine. The most developed, educated, productive and hard-working areas are Donbass, Kharkov, Odessa, Zaporozhie, and Dnepropetrovsk – the same areas that want to be with Russia and are against Kiev junta and ukro-nazis. Galicia, as all of western Ukraine, Kiev and agricultural central Ukraine, always lived off the productive and developed East and South.
Looting these parts in order to enrich Galicia is done in order to weaken further the pro-Russian parts and to make it more lucrative for Poland and Romania to later take over western Ukraine.
But is this scenario really possible? Can Poland and Romania succeed in chopping off parts of Ukraine?
Here are my predictions and thoughts:
I usually say that there are times when the energy flowing into the future is clearly defined and the future is fully formed. Then my predictions have a hight confidence factor. However, there are times when the future is still in a flux. In such cases I usually see the best scenario, which I will suggest, or 2 or more possible scenarios.
In this case prediction for Romania is easy. The answer for Odessa and any part of Odessa oblast – absolutely not, Romania won’t succeed in trying to annex it. I can say will full confidence that Russia will never allow that to happen.
My readers will remember that I said in the beginning of 2014 – well before the Crimean referendum was even planned – that Russia would never allow Crimea to fall into the hands of the Ukraine nazis and Americans. Sure enough – this is what happened.
I say with equal confidence that Romania will never get any part of Odessa region. If not Odessa proper, they are at least trying to get their hands of the strategic port of Izmail, located in the southern-most portion of the huge Odessa oblast. Izmail, which was once a Turkish port and fortress, controls the exit from the internationally important river Danube (Dunai) into the Black Sea. Izmail and a large chunk of southern Odessa oblast is secluded and only connected by 2 bridges to mainland. It is also far from Russia. But it is very close to Romania. Geographically, it is easy for Romania to take it over, however, politically it’s impossible. There is absolutely no way Russia will allow Romania to have such asset. Interestingly enough, Germany and France won’t allow it either – see more on that below.
As to Chernovtsi in western Ukraine, the same answer – absolutely not. Romania won’t get it either. Chernovtsi oblast was part of reparations Romania had to pay to the USSR after WWII for siding with Hitler and occupying Odessa and other parts of the country.
Will Poland be able to annex Galicia? I can tell you that US would love for them to do so.
This is a bit more complicated and depends on certain circumstances, one of them being that after the junta and ukro-nazis are chased out of Ukraine (remember my prediction time frame: it will happen between 2016-18), Russians and Ukrainians may actually decide they don’t want to deal with Galicia and ukro-nazis. They may decide to lock them in the aforementioned three oblasts, redraw the border by the river Prut and let Poland deal with them. In that case, Poland may just get its wish, but will certainly regret it, per above quote from Peotr Getsko. He is absolutely correct in suggesting that all these armed ukro-nazi thugs will invade Europe, Poland being first in line.
On the other hand, Western EU – mainly, Germany and France – will not like Poland getting any land from Ukraine (and forget Romania). This is a bad precedent for the EU, flying in the face of any WWII border agreements. It’s a dangerous path, leading to mayhem and potential war in Europe. This is something Europeans, especially Germans, are mortally afraid of.
The likelihood of about 98-99% is that Germany, France and Russia will make the decision on borders and attribution of Western Ukraine jointly. This will signify a further rift between US and EU.
Therefore, EU (read Germany, France, Austria and Hungary) together with Russia, and possibly Belarus and Kazakhstan, may decide to put joint peacekeeping forces in western Ukraine, creating a sequestered protectorate in order to suppress the ukro-nazis there. This is a rather likely scenario for the next 5 to 10 years. But the situation will be malleable at best.
About Russins and Zakarpatie (Transcarpathia): Getsko represents ethnic Russins (local for ‘Russians’), called ‘Ruthenians’ in English. The name of Russins was deliberately latinized in Western languages so it would sound as a separate from Russians ethnicity, thus attempting to sever ties with the mother culture. I always use the correct name ‘Russins’.
Ethnic Russins, who were Orthodox, had been forcefully converted into Catholicism in 18-20th centuries, when they were under Austria-Hungary empire’s rule. Since they resisted, concentration camps were built for them and a quiet genocide of the core Carpathian population was executed.
Transcarpathia is mainly populated with Russins and Hungarians. It is firmly united against Galichina Bandera ukro-nazis, who also killed a lot of them. There is a possibility of a referendum to break away, but what these shrewd and sly people don’t want is a Donbass-like war. They will wait for the Kiev junta to weaken sufficiently, and preferably, for the Donbass self-defence tanks to enter Kiev, if you know what I mean. Alternatively, Transcarpathia will wait for uprisings in Odessa, Kharkov and Zaporozhie, and only then will they seize their opportunity to declare independence.
Transcarpathia doesn’t want to be a part of Ukraine. Most population wouldn’t mind being with Russia, but they are too remote and cut off from Russia by Galicia. Russins say that when their people need to escape to Russia from the Ukraine mobilization, they have to go through Slovakia and/or Hungary, in order to bypass the ukro-nazis in Galicia.
Transcarpathia has a border with Hungary, and many locals want to join it. I wrote about that at one point in 2014. I do think it’s a good idea. Joining Hungary may make sense for Zakarpatie, as long as the people’s referendum decides so.
My prediction is that the ultimate decision as to what happens to various parts of western Ukraine will be made in Moscow.
Emotional ex Ukraine PM under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov, presented his new book detailing the February 2014 Kiev coup. Almost crying while talking about the tragedy in Donbass and Odessa, he put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the EU and US; specifically, the former EU commissioner Stefan Fule, who threatened him with regime change if he didn’t sign the EU agreement. He also talked about personal pressure on him by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland. (And let’s not forget the prominent role in this whole story by the EU chief diplomat Catherine Ashton and other politicians from Brussels, Lithuania and Poland, as I discussed in a number of prior articles – LR.)
Take a listen:
In this piece in Russian Azarov admits that: negotiations with Russia were always difficult because of gas price disputes, but they always proceeded with mutual respect and in the spirit of cooperation. Russia never put pressure on the Ukraine government. It was the opposite with the West. Ukraine government and Azarov personally were under constant severe pressure from US and EU. When Nuland arrived in December 2013, she started pressuring Azarov into forming the so-called “government of national unity,” staffed with people “the nation trusts.” Azarov laments that she was not concerned at all with the fact that his own government received a vote of confidence in both December 2013 and January 2014.
I think the above is self-explanatory, should anyone still need a confirmation that Ukraine was a managed colony of the West well before the February 2014 coup, still under Yanukovich… Incidentally, this should also help those who still think that Yanukovich was a pro-Russian politician. In fact, Yanukovich was never pro-Russian. He was only a bit more balanced than others. But it was Yanukovich who announced 4 years ago that the direction of Ukraine is towards integration with the EU. Russia worked with him, just like they tried to work with Timoshenko when she was PM, trying to keep a bad peace in the family and settling for a lesser evil.
These revelations are just the beginning. As the conflict in Ukraine continues growing and getting out of hand, as the explosion leading to the new, cleansed Ukraine – completely different from today’s nazi regime – nears, more and more revelations will be coming out. Also see my PREDICTIONS for a complete picture.
The artificial entity that is today’s Ukraine, could never self-govern. The fact is, Ukraine in this configuration (frankly, in any configuration) could only be successful being a part of Russia, as history shows. For a complete picture on that read: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.
The fact that Russia in the past 20 odd years was hands off and looking the other way was used by the West to take over Ukraine quietly via oligarchs, NGOs, MSM, falsified/Soros-sponsored history books, Catholic church and 2004 Orange revolution. The moment Yanukovich refused to do what they wanted him to do, they executed an openly nazi coup and created an area of permanent instability on Russian borders. The problem with this approach is that when you sleep with the devil, be ready to wake up in hell. Eventually, such things backfire. US once created AlQaeda and trained the Taliban against the USSR. Years later, these entities acquired a life of their own and turned on their former handlers.
To add to the picture, here is my response to a reader that resonates with the above. The issues discussed are whether Ukraine may let Donbass leave to save the Kiev junta’s grip on the rest of the territory; and whether, should this happen, the rest of Ukraine will be left anti-Russian for a long time.
The revolt is brewing inside Ukraine in many areas, including Odessa, Kharkov and Zaporozhie, and even Western Ukraine. 1.5 million Ukraine citizens already escaped to Russia from mobilization, etc. This means that if Donbass is allowed to leave, others will want to secede as well.
Anti-Russian Ukraine won’t survive for long because it’s unnatural – change is coming. US and EU created a monster they will be very sorry about.
A great example is Chechnya: considering the gravity of a 1990s conflict, it did a rather quick turnaround from anti-Russian rebellion to a staunchly pro-Russian position. These switches of the public mood happen extremely fast, often the moment the status quo changes. This is human nature and there are tons of historic examples of same.
The Kiev junta is finished the moment they admit Donbass is separate.
I will also briefly add that the geopolitical game is much bigger than between the parts of Ukraine. The stakes are between the old and the new and what the future of mankind will look like. What happens in Ukraine is really being decided between Washington and Moscow. I will write about that in the upcoming Earth Shift Reports. Stay tuned!
This is a video with a very poignant new song by the band called “Alexander Matrosov,” entitled: “To the Soldier of Ukraine.”
The video shows the truth of the new ‘order’ in Ukraine, imposed by Kiev and the West. It is powerful, at times very disturbing, and must be seen to know the truth. I thought it was so important that I decided to translate the whole thing.
Lyrics – English translation:
Remember, the soldier of Ukraine,
you swore to protect your people?
Why do you turn Donbass into ruins,
why do you keep shooting at children?
You are killed.
You don’t understand,
but bullets keep flying.
This war is bad for everyone.
Those who get filthy rich on war.
They will create any deception,
for them your life means nothing.
In the quiet of their offices,
in stylish designer suits,
they enjoy the whisper of dollars,
while you die in the war…
Wake up, the soldier of Ukraine,
stop shooting at your brothers as if they were training targets,
and shell them from Grads,
and send mines instead of presents into every home.
This isn’t a secret any more!
Your enemies are in Kiev offices!
The more deaths the bigger their banking account!
There is no other reason.
They will seduce and scapegoat you.
They are only strong while war rages.
Wake up, the soldier of Ukraine,
Wake up, the soldier of Ukraine,
Wake up, the soldier of Ukraine.
The world is awaiting your decision!
Video with song:
It is very well-known that the lies and zombifying propaganda of the Kiev junta is absolutely numbing. It has turned citizens of Ukraine – those who watch Ukrainian TV and read papers – into absolute zombies and crazed maniacs. Those who understand the truth, report that they can’t watch ukro-TV for 5 minutes because their heads start hurting violently. In others words, their mind, recognizing profound psychological manipulation, starts rebelling.
On another hand, insistent reports continue surfacing, which are being diligently suppressed, that MK Ultra and other advanced, mass-zombifying techniques are used on Ukraine citizens to turn them into Russia-haters. I talked about that in one of my previous YouTube episodes. There is a strong indication that the devices located in the largest in Europe, recently built US embassy in Kiev, as well US ships docking in Odessa, are used to induce anti-Russian hysteria in Ukraine.
But in truth, once a person has been brought up in a specific way (and all young Ukrainians were brought up with Soros-sponsored history books insisting Russia is their enemy No.1), all you have to do is trigger this hidden button you had planted in the dormant mass psyche – and voila! – you get desired mass psychosis. Expensive new technology may not even be necessary. Still, insistent voices continue warning about US testing such devices on Ukraine citizens, for future use on their own citizens and citizens of the EU.
For additional angle on this also read: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates.
The only country that cares about preserving the lives of Ukrainians is Russia:
Ukraine itself doesn’t give a damn about their people. The Kiev junta is sending its young soldiers to die. The Kiev ministry of defence has purchased a plot of 80 hectares, where they are actively digging graves for their soldiers. This plot is enough to bury 160,000 people. These gruesome images went viral around the net. An image of such dug-out graves is included in the above video.
Losses of the Kiev army in Donbass are 10 to 1 compared to those of self-defence, as reported by Kiev. They send them into battle without training, without food, without proper equipment. Therefore, the rulers in Kiev don’t care how many young people, who could have children, would die. See my recent: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.
The only country that cares, the only leader that is concerned about the preservation of the Ukraine’s population and the lives of its young men, are Russia and Vladimir Putin.
When Ukraine men try to escape mobilization, they board busses and run to another country. Seeing that, Poland, Czechia and Slovakia have closed their borders. The only country that hasn’t is Russia.
However, recent changes to Russian law due to Ukraine’s stance of confrontation is that Ukrainians can only stay 30 days on the Russian territory. Vladimir Putin has announced that this law will be modified to accommodate a huge inflow of refugees and mobilization escapees by prolonging their visas beyond 30 days.
Crimea specifically said they would be ready to accept ‘mogilizaion’ (from Rus. ‘mogila’ – grave) refugees. In Russia these refugees are given free room and board in college and factory dorms. Those who want to work to make money in order to take it back home, can find jobs easily in the nearby Belgorod, Lipetsk and other Russian oblasts bordering Ukraine, as robust Russian job market experiences a need in all kinds of workers, from janitors to nurses and other qualified specialists.
Eye-witnesses report that entire western Ukraine villages look deserted as all adult males have left to hide from mobilization. Western Ukraine is the birthplace of ukro-nazis Bandera, Shukhevich and their heirs, ‘the right secror,’ ‘svoboda,’ and other contemporary ukro-nazis.
Where do you think these western Ukrainians, who hate Russia, and who jumped on Kiev maidan promising to ‘knife Russians,’ are running? That’s right, to Russia. They are being checked out as FSB/Russian police work well. If they are clean, they are allowed in.
However, speaking of brainwashing, what is becoming very clear is that when such Ukrainians, even coming from western parts, are taken out of Kiev’s deafening anti-Russian propaganda for a few days, they change completely. They see that while Ukraine is full of hatred towards Russia, Russians address them with kindness and compassion. They see that there is no talk of war in Russia – Ukraine propaganda presents it as if Russia has attacked and is conducting a war against Ukraine in Donbass, and this is why Ukraine soldiers are dying there in such numbers.
According to Kiev MSM, several Russian divisions already perished in Donbass, as the brave Ukraine soldiers continue deflecting the attacks by vicious Russian army that invaded the sovereign Ukraine. These Russian invaders must be invisible as to this day not a single proof was presented of their existence.
How else would Kiev explain to their population the staggering losses they sustain while fighting against tiny Donbass? How will they justify the fact that DNR and LNR small self-defense armies manage to give the much bigger and better equipped Ukraine army a thrashing every time? They can’t possibly admit that their losses stem from their own stupidity and incompetence. They can’t say that they are fighting against the peaceful population of Donbass, which would rather die than live under ukro-nazis.
Ukraine keeps accusing Russia of aggression – with zero facts, of course, but backed in all their lies by the US and EU. When in Russia, Ukrainian refugees discover that Russians are thinking only of how to stop civil war in Ukraine. The parallel is that of a nasty, unreasonable, selfish, and at times violent, teenager, who says to his parents ‘I hate you,’ while parents in response continue loving him, trying to protect him from his own self-destructiveness.
Ukrainians also discover with surprise how well Russians live. For example, Moscow is one of the most modern, well-to-do and best looking capitals in the world. A friend who traveled for New Year’s to the capital of Latvia, Riga, noted that you’d think it was Latvia that was under severe Western sanctions: on New Year’s it’s deathly quiet, streets are dark, people hide out in their homes. This person was born and grew up in Riga, and he was shocked to see the poverty and desolation there. In Moscow, meanwhile, streets and squares are nicely lit up, with beautiful New Year’s trees and street celebrations; people are joyful, they laugh and have a good time. I once showed around Manhattan to my friends from Germany. We walked along Broadway and they thought I was playing a joke on them. They said: ‘This is New York? This is Broadway? Looks like a getto.’
Point is, Russia is being deliberately, systematically and viciously maligned and put down by the West – and now that unfortunately includes Ukraine as well. Black is made look white, and vice versa.
This is nothing new: the massive lies and anti-Russian propaganda were common during Cold War; before WWI and WWII; as we are now starting to re-discover from our suppressed history – this was equally the case during 19th, 18th and earlier centuries. Europe always felt jealous and intimidated by Russia. Not because Russia threatened the West – it was the other way around as we well know from history. It was because of Russia’s role as the great karmic balancer of the world.
There are many forces in the West that need and want to keep the world in grave imbalance. If there is balance and fairness on planet Earth, how will they dupe, enslave and rob the entire world?
Read more about Russia’s global role in PREDICTIONS on top bar. Also, I will be talking about that in my upcoming YouTube videos.
Speaking of West’s jubilation that Russian economy is in ‘tatters,’ as announced by Obama…
Not even close! Russia creates new jobs by thousands, daily. This is why Russia can easily absorb emigration rivaling USA’s, while having only 150 million population. US loses jobs with the same speed, daily. Not counting McDonald’s burger-flippers, of course – that market is booming.
Poland’s unseemly role:
Meanwhile, scandals shaking up Poland: Polish president proposed to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory (victory over Nazi Germany in WWII) in Poland, where WWII started. And the logic behind celebrating Victory Day in a place where the war actually started and where no significant battles were fought? Don’t ask. Obviously none, except to spite, insult and try to humiliate Russia.
Russia already announced that this is yet another provocation by Poland designed to dissuade some EU politicians from coming to the traditional Great Victory celebration in Moscow on May 9th, 2015, thus sabotaging the important 70th Anniversary commemorative event.
Nothing new here: remember 1980 Moscow Olympics boycott, attempts to boycott the 2014 Sochi Olympics, present attempts to isolate Russia, turn off SWIFT, sanctions and attempts to blame Russia for the Ukraine disasters.
Poland’s hideous, demonic role in this entire Ukrainian war has yet to fully come out. One of the biggest Trojan Horses of the US in the EU, Poland does US bidding, as well as pursues its own ulterior motives. During recent commemoration of the 70th anniversary of liberation of Poland and Auschwitz by the Soviet Army, Poland snubbed the country liberator of Poland and Auschwitz for an official invitation. President of Russia Vladimir Putin wasn’t invited. Meanwhile, Polish FM made a statement that it was Ukraine that liberated Poland and Auschwitz, and the rest of the USSR had nothing to do with that.
Someone left a comment in my previous post on this topic, saying that Poland made a mistake. Not even close to the truth. Polish FM, who made that statement (for which I hold personally responsible the Polish president and Polish government) is a Soviet trained historian, and US Manchurian Candidate, who knew precisely what he was doing. See my article: How US Invaded Europe with Its Army of Manchurian Candidates.
In fact, in addition to being a US lapdog, Poland is pursuing its own interests. Poland is trying to recreate its failed medieval empire, called Rech Pospolita. While Ukraine is falling apart and everyone is looking the other way, Poland hopes to bite off as big of a chunk of Ukraine as they possibly can. This is why they need to keep everyone’s eyes on Russia, blaming Russia for all mortal sins and keeping Russia fending off attacks.
Other countries that are licking their lips at juicy pieces of Ukraine territory are Romania and Lithuania. As a diversion, they need Russia to be under attack all the time for their plan to work.
Therefore, Ukrainian soldiers, simple people of Ukraine who think that patriotism equals being anti-Russian, and all those who are caught in the web of propaganda, are helping vultures ready to tear apart what’s left of their country.
These silly people don’t understand that only Russia can guarantee the integrity, free cultural development of Ukraine and Ukrainian culture.
There were lots of videos and other proof that appeared on the internet that shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Americans, and possibly Canadians, as well as other English-speakers, are very much a part of Kiev junta army. In my previous article I showed a video in which Polish mercenaries proudly parade their national identity. See: False Flag Alert; Kiev Regime Needs War to Survive; Ukrainians Refuse to Fight; Foreign Mercenaries and NATO Weapons.
Proofs and reports from locals in Mariupol continue pouring in that massive numbers of Western/NATO/US/Canada/UK/German/French/Polish/Lithuanian troops and weapons are being used by Ukraine army to subdue Ukrainian population, which doesn’t want to live under fascist regime. Therefore, we can say confidently, this is a foreign takeover of Ukraine by the West.
Anyone who knows Russian history remembers that in 1918 the so-called Antanta, US/UK and France, also tried to invade Russia to sway the result of the Civil War. The unabated aggression and arrogant take-over of the world by the Anglo-Americans and their cronies must stop!
Look at the video below from Mariupol. In it, clearly an American mercenary tells a reporter to ‘get outta his face.’
The new bit: Bosnian defense minister resigned this morning over the NATO/US/EU pressure to sell weapons to the Kiev government. One honest man in a sea of EU political monsters! Just imagine how many of his counterparts in POLAND, Bulgaria, Romania, France, GERMANY, US, UK, Canada, Australia gladly DO sell those weapons and provide their military!
Video by RT:
This is an outright, shameful takeover of a foreign country, as I had been saying since the beginning of 2014.
They are desperate, they don’t know what else to do to prop up the dying Kiev junta regime. But none of this will help. People everywhere are awakening, and not just in Ukraine. You all remember my prediction: new, very different people will come to power in Ukraine, and by 2016-2018 Ukraine will make a wild swing towards union with Russia, although it’s economy may be destroyed and it may be divided into 2 or 3 separate states. Alternatively, there is still a possibility of keeping what is now Ukraine as loose confederation, each part of which is separate from each other in most everything. Such confederation, if formed, will not be called Ukraine, but most likely, Novorossia. This is still in a flux.
Remember my other prediction: the main, overriding goal of the West’s takeover of Ukraine is to subdue, and preferrably destroy, Russia. This, as I also predicted previously, would backfire on the West in a spectacular fashion, in time. The more they persist, the deeper they get their claws into this, the worse will be the backlash when people in Russia, Ukraine, Eastern Europe, and in their own countries finally awaken.
More about all that in future Earth Shift Reports.

The new, rabidly anti-Russian resolution by the EU Parliament is very educational, rather mind-boggling – and quite scary. Thank you, Christa, for providing the links!
“While we were looking the other way, to Paris, the EU seems to have adopted the following resolution. This is very scary to say the least! When and where will they stop?”
Big Picture and a Look Forward:
EU Parliament’s Russophobia and an Army of US Manchurian Candidates
This, newly adopted, document has specific authors:
1. Western Europe neocons who are the US/NWO agents. They are the ones that definitely studied in the US during the period of the USA’s rise and thriving, as a direct result of the wholesale looting of the USSR. What went on during the 1980s-1990s made it seem as if the US could do no wrong, while Russia/USSR were wrong no matter what they did. It is only now that we are starting to fully understand the scope and depth of the multi-year anti-Russian operation conducted by the West/NWO, with the US being its pointman and primary beneficiary.
The psyche of the EU neocons was shaped at Columbia, Yale or Georgetown. For these feeble-minded, yet ambitious individuals, prone to trust fake but flashy things taking them for real gold, it was all the proof they needed: if the US is doing very well economically, while Russia isn’t, it is because the US is worthy and Russia isn’t. This philosophy of the slaves brings us to the condition the world is in today.
2. The second group consists specifically of Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian (the Baltics) deputies in the EU Parliament. These, I can assure you, also studied in the US in the same period, based on the US grants.
While we were all asleep throughout the 1990s, the US was busy creating an army of Manchurian Candidates to deploy all over the world.
We all remember how a typical Manchurian Candidate works, don’t we? A trigger of some sort, generated by any kind of psychic intervention that could be as severe as MK Ultra, or as common as the brainwashing at American Ivy League schools/bribing with numbered accounts, is embedded in the “right” human’s psyche.
The human in question, of course, had to be susceptible to bribery and suggestion, have loose or non-existent morals/inner compass, and inability to tell right from wrong. Such human also had to be super-ambitious, super-greedy and possess low self-esteem. Inability to THINK critically, conceptually and constructively was a must, as any thinking person eventually would have snapped out of the brainwashing. But a great ability to parrot propaganda was very necessary! Having a personal grudge against Russia was a plus, but hardly a requirement. That part would be developed as the Manchurian Candidate preparation progressed.
The above-described psychological profile, manifested as low (life-diminishing or life-threatening) calibration, would make specific individual thus selected prone to psychic attacks and manipulation. Once the trigger was activated (in this case, the anti-Russian agenda), they would become unstoppable US agenda machines. Typical representatives of this breed are former president of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, and former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko.
To illustrate how useful and telling my personal calibration/Chi system is in identifying who you are dealing with, here are sample calibrations of the above individuals. Mikhail Saakashvili: calibration 100 (fear)/ Chi 150 (anger). At his low, during the Georgia/S. Ossetia conflict, his calibration was 89 (violent grief) / Chi 85 – same. Viktor Yushchenko personal calibration 85 (violent grief) / Chi 95 – same.
The primest of the prime examples! Current president of Lithuania, Dalia Grybauskaitė, who started out as the USSR Communist party functionier, with father as KGB (NKVD) officer, and then went on to study at the Georgetown University, Washington DC. Her Wikipedia bio says it all! This is the bio of a text-book Manchurian Candidate! In fact, the entire Lithuanian cabinet of ministers are Russophobic Manchurian Candidates, boasting similar bios. Is it any wonder that Lithuania takes such incredibly active role in stoking the fire of conflict in Ukraine, down to sending mercenaries, authoring anti-Donbass, anti-Russia resolutions (Lithuania was behind this one), sending weapons and more.
Personal calibration of Grybauskaite is 150 (anger), Chi 185 (pride). See more about how my calibrations system works in links above.
The following also gives an idea of how naive and trusting Russians used to be before the Kiev maidan of 2013-14, and how much the events in Ukraine cured them of this naiveté. I remember in 2009, when Grybauskaite first came to power in Lithuania, the Russian press was writing: “Oh, great, finally we will have someone more even-handed in the Baltics. After all, she was a Communist party member, her father was an officer, she went to school in Leningrad (St Petersburg). We have common history, she understands us better… Hopefully, she won’t be as Russophobic as her predecessors…” Famous last words!
Fast-forward to 2013: Grybauskaite and her entire government became the driving force behind pushing Yanukovich and Ukraine into signing the EU association agreement; when Yanukovich bulked the last moment, they were, together with Poland, behind massive anti-Russian, pro-EU propaganda in Ukraine, behind massive numbers of Lithuanian mercenaries (in addition to Polish and others), and now they are the driving force behind all rabidly anti-Russian actions of the EU. There is so much subversive, spying, propaganda, trolling, sabotage, and other anti-Russian activity happening in all of the Baltics, Poland and other above-mentioned countries daily that it would take a large book to even scratch the surface. The Manchurian Candidate army in action!
Romanian, Croatian and Bulgarian EU Parliament deputies participate to a lesser degree, on average more quietly and reluctantly, or perhaps, they stay neutral. Hungarian, Slovenian, Czech and Slovak deputies have, to a degree, grown up. Consequently, it’s not as cool as before to be rabidly Russophobic in those parts. To that end, at least some of them (not all) by now grasp who is pulling their strings; therefore, in part they are out of the Russia-bashing game.
That said, there are pro-Russia, or at least reasonable, forces even in Poland and the Baltics, who are being silenced or shunned.
The sheer number of the post-Soviet camp deputies from various small, inconsequential EU countries is such that they overwhelm anyone more reasonable from Western and Southern Europe, or from their own countries. The weight and importance of these small countries is zero in the affairs touching the EU most directly. Therefore, they flex their muscles, showing they mean something, in these kinds of matters. Their usual justification is that they are fearing the Russian attack at any moment now. This is also the way they get US bases, financing and the large inflow of the US/NATO military hardware into their countries.
If they are small and inconsequential, they make up for it by yelling the loudest. Again, the countries we are talking about are primarily Poland and the Baltics, whom I collectively call the “US Trojan Horses in the EU.” They tend to usurp any resolutions regarding anything to do with post-Soviet space, and they are distinguished by a very definitive anti-Russian agenda. As Paul Plane, the host of The Plane Truth Show on the Time Monk Radio, noted very astutely in comments, the EU turned all of its founding principles upside down, having greedily admitted to its ranks anyone and everyone, just to take them out of the Russian sphere of influence and to fortify the new Euro-empire.
Ironically, these US Trojan Horses often create difficulties for the EU when EU’s economic interests lie in closer cooperation with Russia. What has been happening last year, including the anti-Russian sanctions, is a direct proof of how inconvenient the US Trojan Horses can become for the rich EU countries. It is also a very interesting illustration of the impossibility of sitting with one as* on two chairs, as Merkel, Hollande and others in the EU hypocritically are trying to do.
Clearly for ulterior motives, Western Europe allows the US Trojan Horses to take the lead in all post-Soviet space and Russia-related resolutions as a bribe of sorts. This way the small countries seem to themselves as indispensable, their lust for power is satisfied, their hysteria is expressed… and Germany and France get to make all the “important decisions.” This is the manipulation of the most disgusting kind. But it is also used by Germany and others to threaten Russia indirectly, while seemingly not being an active party to such resolution.
How does it technically works? The stroke is well-known. To convince the majority, the US Trojan Horses trade favors in the lobby and promise support to other deputies, more moderate or undecided, on those topics important to them, in exchange for voting in favor of any and all anti-Russian resolutions. That has a lot of takers in the marginalized countries I mentioned above, as well as with Western EU neocons. This is the technique they learned from the US, specifically from the US Congress, where all the wheeling and dealing is done in such way.
To be sure, an earlier, more aggressive version of this resolution didn’t pass.
To answer Christa’s question, when and where will they stop:
They’ll stop when people of the EU finally tell them no more! For as long as they can swindle millions into ‘unity marches’ while sneaking in resolutions like this, nothing will change. Someone’s pushing people’s buttons, and they, as usual, fall for it. The moment EU protest rallies to stop US/West’s aggression against Ukraine and Russia gather 1 million people, the moment they unelect corrupt US puppets out of the EU Parliament – all this will stop.
Things like that can only be done for as long as people allow them to take place!

Lada’s Geopolitical Primer: Ukraine as Heir to Poland’s CIA Torture Prison Program. Nuke Waste, Shale Gas, Gold
Lada’s Geopolitical Primer:
Ukraine as Heir to Poland’s CIA Torture Prison Program.
Nuke Waste, Shale Gas, Gold
Quote from RT: “The damning report into CIA torture has led Poland to finally admit that it DID host a secret American prison – after years of denying it. It’s the first acknowledgement by a foreign country to hosting such a site.”
After years of denying the obvious and as part of a fallout from the CIA Torture Report, Poland is forced to finally admit it has hosted a secret #CIA #torture prison, but says they had no idea torture was used… Yeah, riiiight. Of course they didn’t…
It’s like saying: I had no idea someone was raped in my own house. Oh, you mean all those screams I heard at night weren’t a manifestation of joy and happiness – they were in fact calls for help? I had no idea!
Reminds me Clinton, too: ‘I never inhaled, and there was no penetration either.’ Of course not, Bill… We all believe you.
Oh, and weren’t there MULTIPLE torture prisons in Poland, according to independent investigative journalists?
In case you were wondering where said torture prison(s) moved from Poland after the EU-wide scandal… look no further – it’s Ukraine!
Remember I wrote several months ago about the wholesale looting and, what I would call, raping of Ukraine, as a result of the February coup? As a consequence even worse oligarchs, ukro-nazi thugs, and even greedier and more incompetent politicians came to power. Ukraine, the country that during Soviet times boasted the world’s TENTH LARGEST economy, that had some of the world’s highest high-tech, scientific and human resource potentials – all thanks to what Russia and Russians built there in the 20th century – is now being quickly turned into the contaminated DUMP for the West.
These are some of the things I revealed at various times this past year:
1. As soon as #Yatsenyuk was installed by US State Dept’s #Nuland as Ukraine’s PM, he immediately shipped most of Ukraine’s gold reserve to the US. This is at the time when most countries are trying to retrieve their gold reserve from the US (admittedly, not very successfully).
The gold reserve scandal – one of the many recent Ukrainian scandals:
Recently, it has been discovered that part of Ukraine’s gold reserve stored in Odessa was in fact gold-painted tungsten. Surprise!
Ukraine’s Central Bank chief is lamenting that 90% of the country’s gold reserve is gone. She says that no one knows where it has disappeared. Oh, really?
Lada’s HOT TIP!
Dear, um… naive Ukraine’s… um… Central Bankster:
Look for it on the other side of the Atlantic.
2. Ukraine also contracted with US and Canada for shale gas extraction, mostly in Donbass and Eastern Ukraine in general. Some believe it in fact was the reason for the Donbass bombings and ruthless destruction of its infrastructure. The area was sold (literally given away to exploit) to Western fracking companies and needed to be freed up from population for future shale gas extraction.
As many of you probably know, I wrote many times that I believe the reasons for the Donbass tragedy are deeper and more complex than that. The driver of global conflict presently is not economy but GEOPOLITICS. IF you own the world, money and profit will follow. This is the real agenda and primary objective of the Anglo-American elites at this time: STRUGGLE FOR GLOBAL FULL-SPECTRUM GEOPOLITICAL DOMINANCE. Those who understand this basic premise fully, can understand the processes and struggles that take place in the world, including, Ukraine, Russia, US, EU, China, BRICS, and more.
Incidentally, I’ll have several super-interesting interviews on these important topics early next year. See more below.
The above only reinforces why the shale gas, supposedly located in E. Ukraine (and W. Ukraine too) played a role in the extermination and vilifying of the staunchly pro-Russian Donbass. Understanding geopolitics and the global dominance doctrine properly, WE are then NOT shocked at all when an announcement is made that, oh, surprise – as it turns out… very LITTLE to NO shale gas is in fact confirmed in E. Ukraine, making Western companies withdraw – but only after devastating war has destroyed most of the infrastructure, driving the most productive population out.
3. Ukraine also promptly contracted with EU and US to serve as a dump for nuclear waste for both. This is also a great idea, but only if you want to kill off the population.
The idea is to use the Chernobyl area, already contaminated. Dumping properly and securely any nuclear waste is a very expensive and highly technological procedure. Ukraine possesses neither money nor expertise to do it right. Their idea is to simply dump hardly protected waste in the Chernobyl wastelands, thus multiplying and prolonging the catastrophe.
Without proper precautions, they are sure to cause the water table contamination. On the contrary, through a very active, professional and complex system of measures, USSR in 1986 did everything to avoid the water table contamination – and they succeeded. Water table was never contaminated. This water table is connected to major underground and above-ground rivers flowing into the Black Sea. By contaminating them, Ukraine may severely damage the delicate ecological balance of the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, creating a widespread international catastrophe.
And incidentally, Chernobyl is located not too far from Ukraine’s capital, Kiev. Could the increased radiation have accounted for the incredible and surreal zombifying and dumbing down of young generations of Ukrainians (who were born and grew up during and shortly after the 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe)? After all, these young Ukrainians are largely the ones who, through maidans and various crazy actions, are destroying their country with their own hands. It’s worth considering as a contributing factor.
However, in reality, of course this goes well beyond Chernobyl and is based on Ukraine society’s systemic corruption and consequent breakdown factor. It is the manifestation of a continuing struggle between the East and West. All this is happening due to the intrinsic dual yin-yang nature of our 3D/4D world, of which I wrote in my Predictions as well as discussed in my YT videos.
4. And the latest news: Ukraine has agreed to host a massive CIA torture prison. This happened as a result of Poland’s CIA torture prison scandal. After Poland had to close down their cozy CIA operation, Ukraine immediately jumped on the opportunity to make some ‘easy money.’
This is how the gruesome Ukrainian version of combining business with pleasure works:
The new CIA torture facility will house (or likely it already does) captured ISIS fighters and various ‘Islamic terrorists,’ well, according to CIA anyway. As part of the official announcement, this prison is also designed to confine and torture captured self-defence Novorossia/Donbass fighters as well as any anti-junta activists and critics.
At least in Poland they were embarrassed enough to keep the existence of such prison secret. In Ukraine they proudly and openly announce it.
The proper and soooo democratic, hypocrite EU elites insist on NOT noticing the mind-bogglingly flagrant abuses taking place daily in Ukraine. Why would they – they brought the present nazi junta to power, after all. In all fairness, they don’t notice the daily worldwide abuses of their biggest buddy, USA, either.
But back to the long-term perspective and reality:
My readers know that my long-standing prediction since January-February, 2014 is that Ukraine will NEVER become a member of the EU (or NATO for that matter). In fact, EU residents and many sane politicians are rather appalled and disgusted at the monster their elites had created in Ukraine. See PREDICTIONS, as well as early articles under ‘Ukraine’ and ‘Predictions 2014’ categories on the side bar, for much more.

Hello, dear readers,
The year is almost drawing to a close, and although the geopolitical, consciousness, and EARTH SHIFT storms continue to rage all around our planet with the same intensity, some readers are on the Holiday mode already. I can certainly understand that. We all have to have a reprieve from violence, heavy subjects and struggle in our lives.
We all want to experience joy, for at least a fleeting moment. This is as natural for human beings as it is human to err.
I am all for joy, and as many of you may know – well, at least those, who have watched my two HUMAN COSCIOUSNESS VIDEOS on Project Earth Shift on LadaRay Channel – I myself vibrate on that level. Therefore, joy, and especially creativity (Calibration 580-599 – Pure Creation), is a must in my life as well. Incidentally, the third video in this series is coming!
I’ll be honest with you: I have a stack of several, nearly finished articles, which are now sitting in drafts. I could publish them, but I am holding back because, as I see, readership has dropped significantly. I can only assume this is due to the holiday season. I just want to remind everyone that this blog will only exist, and I will continue publishing free material for as long as I see support from my readers. I do plan to release my materials starting in the beginning of January, 2015, so stay tuned.
This is a super-quick pre-pre-announcement of things still to come this year and what to expect as soon as January starts!
Still to come this year:
Well, this depends on our friends at the TIME MONK RADIO,
but as I said before, we have recorded an absolutely smashing and eye-opening 2-part interview about so many things based on my Earth Shift System and mystical futurism. Don’t miss it when it comes out!
This show will present a unique opportunity for listeners to participate. How? Stay tuned for more juicy stuff!
More of my interviews on super-important geopolitical, futurism, forbidden history, and EARTH SHIFT topics will come out in January and the following months, thanks to our friends at The Cat’s Eye on the Future and The Plane Truth shows!
Coming in a few days (and don’t you miss it either!):
Proper PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT of future plans, awesome growth, super-ideas,
And many things to come in the Year 2015!
I will also pre-announce the shocking, controversial, expansive and eye-opening topics
I will address in 2015.
Finally, we will announce the new support/donation options, as well as new paid options for my followers.
MUCH MORE IN THE UPCOMING PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT!
Stay with us!
You’ll be happy you did.
Trust me – I am only warming up and this is just the beginning! 😉

I have received multiple requests to share those Russian analysts and sources that I listen to and recommend in the area of geopolitics and economy. One of the readers who has asked this question is our commenter extraordinaire, Paul. His comment and my initial reply with more info can be found here.
My recommendations are based on several factors: 1. How well any given analyst sees the big picture, without succumbing to small and negative emotions, which would taint and distort said big picture. 2. How profoundly this person knows and understands the global geopolitical/economic issues and hidden processes that move the global, Eurasian and Russian society. 3. How interesting it is to listen to this person. 4. How balanced he is (yes, unfortunately, all today’s recommendations are males – will that change soon?). 5. How well can he forecast and/or predict the future. As a geopolitical analyst who is also profoundly psychic and clairvoyant and boasting of a number of accurate global predictions, for me this is an important criteria. You’ll be surprised how many analysts cannot predict the future or gauge it accurately, despite their analysis being basically on target.
Keep in mind, all those listed below have their specialty and angle of view (as I do), so my recommendation doesn’t mean I 100% agree, nor that I necessarily endorse, what they say. If there is an interest in my thoughts on any specific statements by anyone mentioned, we can certainly discuss that in an audio interview.
Wherever possible I also provide relevant links.
Top 2 analysts I recommend highly:
YT link: Nikolay Starikov. Bestselling geopolitical author, head of the new Russian Party Velikoe Otechestvo. Excellent geopolitical knowledge, very accessible and easy to understand for an average listener and pro alike, great story-teller, does a lot of talks, many in book stores. I have a link to Starikov’s site on my Resources page. Here is also a very good talk by Starikov in Bratislava, Slovakia: Democracy and the Roots of Terrorism. Russian patriot, his views are those of a Russia-centric statesman. In that we differ somewhat, as I view all the processes in the world from the point of view of what is best for the Earth and mankind in general. However, as Russia and mankind’s interests largely coincide, I highly recommend Starikov as another angle and good addition to much of what I say. I usually listen to his talks.
Prof. Sergei Glazyev, advisor to President Putin. He is excellent when it comes mainly to economic and geo-economic analysis – very lucid, deep understanding of the big picture, as well as specific issues and practical ways of solving them. Here is a post on FuturisTrendcast which refers to his article: Putin’s Advisor Sergei Glazyev on Eurofascism. Did Russia and China Lose Propaganda War to the US?
YT link: Anatoly Vasserman. Very highly recommended as analyst, always keeps sight of the big picture. Unlike most others, manages to predict accurately, which shows a great deal of visionary clairvoyance – thus earning a high mark from me. Intellectual, considered one of the smartest people alive, with deep and clear knowledge and wisdom. Interesting to listen to. Jewish from Odessa (the city of my childhood), he is also a futurist with some very interesting ideas of the society of the future, based on advanced forms of socialism.
News of the Slavs with Evgeny Novikov at кРАмола инфо. From Minsk, Belarus. Succinct, 10 minute weekly YT program with analytical overview/opinion on major Russian/global issues. Novikov is a very good political commentator. I always listen.
Prof. Andrey Fursov. Very good analyst, a bit dry. Here is his latest video: Андрей Фурсов – Правда и ложь СМИ. (The MSM truth and lies).
Prof. Valentin Kasatonov. He’s geopolitical economist, mostly academic. Explains well in a detached way. Here’s his latest video analysis about the Russian economy, ruble slide, Western finanical system, FED.
YT link: Mikhail Zadornov. He is actually a comedian turned thinker/analytical comedian, if you will. I like him; he is, when appropriate, wise or funny, gloomy or – mostly – upbeat. In other words, he is balanced; good for those who are interested in distortions of Russian history and holistic (Rus: vedicheskiy – ‘Vedic’) way of life. He isn’t an analyst per se, but a good barometer of the Russian society in general on a balanced, yet critical side. I usually watch his weekly show Neformat to keep on top of that side of things.
The above recommendations complement what I usually talk about. In this regard, those who like my style and things I discuss relative to Russia, Eurasia, the West, forbidden history and liguistics, geopolitics and predictions may also find these helpful.
Some may also like:
Vladimir Zhirinovsky – Head of the Liberal Democratic Party, Deputy Speaker of the Duma. He is a talented speaker with a gift of the gab. Some feel he is too angry and flamboyant (he calmed down a lot lately). Zhirinovsky has a good long-term perspective and vision. Sharp, knowledgeable, sometimes makes decent predictions. Respected because of that. I like to listen to him as a barometer of what is happening in the right-wing part of the Russian society.
Sergei Zheleznyak (Deputy Speaker of the Duma, The United Russia Party). He only does debates (see below) and interviews. Has one of the better perspectives, logical, can talk. He expresses the centrist positon of the United Russia and he’s close to the official position of the Russian Federation. Because of that, he is a very good political barometer. He is originally from Kiev, and therefore, very knowledgeable about internal processes taking place in both Russia and Ukraine, as well as between the two. I find I agree with a lot of what he says in this regard.
Just to note, not a recommendation:
Evgeny Fedorov – Duma deputy, Head of NOD (the National Liberation Movement). To my taste, he is too angry and fear-mongering. But he does have the right perspective as to where Russia should be going, and what the West is up to. Leans toward conspiracy theories. He is sometimes interesting to listen to, makes some valid points. I caught him several times making wrong predictions – he always errs significantly on the negative side. See: Prediction: Is Kiev-Style Maidan Possible in St. Petersburg? Lots about him in that article. We discuss just that issue: his recent prediction that, as we now know, didn’t materialize, and mine that did.
Mikhail Delyagin – political economist. I caught him several times being wrong about what Russia will or won’t do, while my predictions were right on, so… He once in while make certain sense in his analysis – but not in his conclusions. Similar to Khazin. Like Khazin – Anti-Putin, unduly and extremely sarchastic and negative. Not my cup of tea.
I will add this name: Prof. Viktor Yefimov. He is more of a futurist and visionary than analyst. A bit convoluted and dry, but interesting. For those who want to go into the very deep and controvercial things.
I am also adding the top Russian geopolitical shows. There are more analysts and politicians that can be found there.
YT link: Sunday Night with Vladimir Solovyov on Russia 1 Channel. The best such talk show. Solovyov is an excellent host and moderator. Usually invites prominent Russian analysts, politicians, writers and foreign reps with varying points of view. I make it a point to watch. I find out a lot of news and keep my hand on the pulse of Russia through it, although I could easily do without the loud arguments when they really get going.
Politica with Peotr Tolstoy. Similar format to above. Link to recent show with Glazyev and Zhirinovsky.
Spetsialny Correspondent (Special Correspondent) show on Russia 1, with Evgeny Popov. Link to the latest show about Novorossia, with Zhirinovsky, Zheleznyak, Kurginyan, Shargunov (not bad), Latvian analyst Einar Graudinsh (he’s right on!), and American journalist Michael Baum, who’s very good at finding excuses for US, NATO and OSCE in Ukraine.
The Polish time-bomb?
(Nothing personal, just facts and translation)
Starting at 10:40, the above Spetsialny Correspondent show includes a documentary about the recent riots resembling the Kiev maidan in Warsaw, Poland. The masked, well-trained and organized young people threw at police the cobblestones dug out in advance, as well as Molotov cocktails. The Russian journalist’s investigation shows the close connection between the two events. It also shows the close connection between the Ukrainian and Polish secret police. Both have exchanged information and Ukrainian police trained in Polish secret training facilities. At 13:00 it is revealed that there is a ‘profound friendship’ between western Ukraine nazis and central Polish authorities. Two months before Kiev maidan a number of ukro-nazis received training in Poland. Officially referred to as ‘Ukrainian students,’ they looked like bald forty-year-old body builders with tattooed swastikas. On pictures one can see people in masks – these are Polish instructors. They forgot to remove the sign, which reads: “Police Legionovo.” This is the location of the secret special police training facility.
Russian journalist tried to get an interview from the Polish author of these revelations in one of the local papers. The author of the article published on the first page, with lots of telling pictures (see video), said that the whole thing was a joke, nothing more. He looked uncomfortable, his front tooth chipped. Looks like someone got to him. At the same time, the prosecutor’s office of Warsaw initiated a criminal case against the unauthorized presence of the ukro-nazis in Poland. Left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing? Or was it done for show: ‘Polish authorities have nothing to do with ukro-nazis’? At 16:00 – interview with another revelation: the so-called ‘Union of Ukrainians in Poland’ receives huge support from the Polish government. It’s possible that the money goes to arm nazis in Ukraine.
It appears what I suspected all along is taking place in Poland: the radical, ultra-nationalistic minority that has usurped the country’s power structures, is doing everything to ignite a bigger conflict in Europe in order to take revenge on Russia (and Germany too) for old spites. Because of their shortsightedness, they are serving as the US Trojan Horse in the EU, trying to deepen a wedge between Russia and Europe. It is a mistake not to take what is happening in Poland seriously. For years, we have already made this mistake with Ukraine, thinking it couldn’t get any worse – and it did.
Both EU and Ukraine will do well to understand who is manipulating them and why. Any reasonable people still left in the US should also understand that it’s against their best interests to be in bed with the Poles. Poles will attempt to hide behind the US back when things go wrong – and they will; they’ll shift the blame onto the US for the catastrophe they are creating in Europe. This is a very dangerous game. The only result is that Poland will drag itself into the abyss, trying to take others with them.
Further in the same show at 21:30 Sergei Zheleznyak reads a quote: ‘Soviet Union has to be divided into separate tribes wherever possible. We must create for these tribes a separate national identity and idea that would be in direct opposition to the Russian idea. For Ukrainians we need to create their own alphabet and their own vocabulary as different as possible from Russian.’ One of the ideologues of German Nazism, Georg Schmidt-Rohr. This is exactly what is happening in today’s Ukraine, which means someone has activated the old Nazi playbook!
At 32:35 – documentary ‘Faces of Novorossia.’ At 34:33 they show burned packaging from an American military lunch left by the Ukrainian army in the completely destroyed Lugansk Airport. At 35:10 they show factories in ruins left after 23 years of Ukraine’s independence. Not from the artillery shelling, just from the country that gradually was falling apart. 35:55 – Kiev stopped paying pensions to Lugansk/Donetsk retirees, doctors and teachers haven’t been paid in 4 months.
They also show a 20-year-old man, young musician from Donetsk, who lost his leg while coming home from a music lesson when Ukraine army was bombing Donetsk. At the same time the American journalist Michael Baum remarks that what is happening in Ukraine is a game. You can imagine the reaction to such statement.
They later talk about the future Nuremberg-style tribunal for crimes against humanity committed in Ukraine and about the need for the international engagement for the de-militarization, de-nazification of the entire Ukraine.
All the above revelations confirm and reinforce what I have stressed in Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History. I have talked about the extensive secret role of Poland in financing and instigating the Kiev maidan, and of Polish training facilities for color revolutionaries. I have also talked about the old German idea of tearing the Russians in Ukraine from the Russians in Russia in order to conquer Russia. As I said in the same report, aggression against Russia always ends badly for the aggressor, as the cancer they had created starts eating themselves from the inside, which is what we are seeing now with riots in Poland, Hungary, France, UK and other countries. Much more is revealed in: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History!
P.S. There is additional discussion about Poland in the comment section.
Incidentally, many people mentioned above, such as Zhirinovsky, Zheleznyak, Zadornov, Solovyov, Fedorov have been blacklisted and sanctioned both in Ukraine and US/EU. They cannot travel to either.

Apologies for not being able to direct you better to any translation options. As I’m sure you can understand, I never had the need to look into that.
Hope all this information helps.
Many thanks to those wonderful readers and fans who have contributed or purchased Lada’s books!
I call Ukraine today the Geopolitical Ground Zero. For better or for worse, it has become the fault line between the old and the new, the West and the East. Much is being decided today in Ukraine. This is why the story of Ukraine and its lessons, constitute an important read for everyone who wants to understand where we came from, where we are, and where we are going!

FREE Earth Shift Report 2: UKRAINE: TRUE HISTORY
(How the falsified history of Ukraine was developed and what lessons it teaches us)
Ukraine and Novorossia Elections
As a start, I will summarize some of the latest news and whispers from Ukraine.
The Rada elections in Kiev were largely predictable. Intercepted US State Dept emails from as early as 2006 called Poroshenko ‘our man in Kiev.’ Poroshenko, who has been now appointed president of Ukraine by his Washington handlers, expected a win in these Rada elections. However, his block finished a close second to Yatsenyuk’s – just over 20% each. The two rival parties cannot be distinguished even with a magnifying glass. Obviously, their Washington handlers want to keep both Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk’s egos in check by balancing them out against each other. The good old divide and conquer…
The relatively low showing of the openly nazi parties was due to two factors: the people are sick and tired of their violence and Ukraine has been told by their EU and US handlers to tone down that violence as much as possible because it makes their masters look bad. Still, the field commanders and nazi leaders, who can shoot and torture, but not think, will be in the Rada. Get ready for lots of loud bangs.
The surprise of the elections was the nearly 10% gained by what is considered pro-Russian Opposition Block, the remnant of the Party of the Regions and other forces squeezed and burned out of the country. The hastily organized Opposition Block is widely thought to be a project of the oligarch Levochkin. Therefore, this is still a fight between oligarchs for power. However, there are some semi-decent politicians in this block, who refuse to give up and intend to continue defending the rights of the Russian-speaking majority in Ukraine which are being brutally suppressed. These are nevertheless mostly business people with their own interests (or representing the interests of corresponding oligarch), so I wouldn’t be too hopeful about them. Ironically, the Opposition Block deputies are also the only ones who have any hope of keeping Ukraine together. Every time the population of Ukraine sees the rest of these ‘deputies’ fighting in the Rada, they will be reminded how pointless it is to try to reason with violent thugs, thus convincing the majority to secede.
Ukro-nazis already threatened the Opposition Block politicians not to show their faces in the Rada, or else. Considering these 10% are the only remaining politicians with some knowledge and experience of governing, without them Ukraine’s collapse would be expedited even further.
About 1/3 of the new Rada deputies are on oligarch Kolomoysky’s payroll. This one rules his vassals sitting in Dnepropetrovsk as his fiefdom, while attempting to create an alternative, oligarch-ruled version of Novorossia.
The official number for the country-wide election turnout is 52%, which observers feel is a falsification. Some observers and journalists were told to leave right before the voting ballots would be counted. When they returned, the see-through voting urns – almost empty before – would magically feel up with ballots.
Anna News reports: The simple people on the Ukraine territory are scared to talk for fear of SBU knocking on their door and dragging them off to jail, or for fear of being kidnapped and beaten by nazi thugs roaming cities and towns. Anna News interviews simple people from Ukraine about how they feel, how they live, etc. Many started refusing such interviews for fear of prosecution. From Kherson on the Black Sea the locals report that people were completely apathetic during elections and most decided not to vote, the turnout was extremely low.
Ukro-nazi justice: Several days ago people in many countries commemorated 6 months since the brutal burning of 42 people alive in Odessa. The city people feel extremely intimidated and scared after that event. Meanwhile, Kiev authorities celebrated the gruesome date by announcing a criminal case against Odessa police for letting go of the activists of the anti-maidan arrested after the ukro-nazis attacked them and burned to death their friends on Kulikovo Polie on May 2. Note, no attackers were arrested that day. No criminal investigation to determine and bring to justice the attackers was ever initiated. All these nazi thugs are still walking free, inflcting pain and thorough on others elsewhere in Ukraine. Meanwhile, those who were victims of the attack were arrested, but later let go after the large crowd of locals demanded their release. Now, Kiev is trying to prosecute those officers who let the victims go.
Officially Odessa had the lowest election turnout in Ukraine after Lugansk and Donetsk. Since we know Lugansk and Donetsk didn’t really vote, it’s safe to assume that Odessa’s real turnout was close to zero.
One brave granny from Odessa’s neighboring Nikolaev, who isn’t afraid of prosecution, said that at most 10% of the Nikolaev people voted in these Rada elections, out of these 75% voted for the Opposition Block. She says that the city has been infiltrated with violent western Ukraine nazis and bosses appointed by Kiev. However, there is a silent resistance that is waiting for the opportune moment to strike back. People are still disappearing. Unemployment is universal. There is no heat or hot water despite cold.
People from various areas of Ukraine report the same: waiting when the junta weakens sufficiently so they could take their power back. The longer this lasts (as I predicted) the more people get disgusted and ready to change the present regime.
There is more and more talk everywhere about changing the name of the new country to Novorossia. Novorossia means New Russia. The South and East don’t want anything to do with Ukraine any more – read more below to see where the name ‘Ukraine’ originated from. That will give you a good idea why people don’t want to keep it as a name for the country that will emerge out of the remnants of today’s incongruent conglomeration. The whispers about Novorossia include South, East, Kiev, all of central and northern Ukraine. The idea is to have a country without oligarchs that are presently strangling the failed Ukraine project. However, most agree that Western Ukraine, particularly Lvov and Galichina, where most ukro-nazis are from, is to be excluded from Novorossia.
Meanwhile in Donbass, the nucleus of the future Novorossia: The elections of November 2nd had a record turnout of over 70% on average. From the live streams and eye-witness footage of the DNR and LNR elections it’s clear that people were very passionate about voting. Despite cold and a threat of bombings, many stood in line for hours and hours to cast their vote. The see-through ballot urns were visibly full everywhere. The result again was predictable as the acting heads of both Donetsk and Lugansk governments received the majority of votes. Citizens interviewed while standing in lines to vote were saying how important these elections were for them and that they were voting to be with Russia. This info from Anna News.
The next steps are preparations for the winter and building the new administrative and government structures corresponding with the idea of the ‘people’s republics.’ Both DNR and LNR are now oligarch free. They are still working on redirecting inward their cash flow, taxes and income. These elections legitimize the heads of state, giving them a mandate to act more resolutely.
International observers present in Novorossia elections came from Hungary, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, France, Italy, Germany, Abkhazia, Russia and USA. They unanimously announced that elections were transparent, well-organized and democratic. Kiev immediately announced that each observer is now persona non grata in Ukraine. The Greek observers retorted they weren’t interested in visiting Ukraine for as long as it’s fascist. All those who participated/voted in the elections have been labeled terrorists by Kiev (that’s one and a half million terrorists).
The fifth Russian humanitarian convoy consisting of 100 trucks arrived to Donetsk and Lugansk. The West and Kiev immediately called it yet another Russian invasion and labeled diapers, flour, canned baby food and reconstruction materials the military cargo.
Rosenergo sent specialists to repair the badly damaged power lines. Both cities have restored 50% of their power with the help of the Russian specialists. Power also means heat. Since Donbass is sitting on all the coal in the world, at least they definitely won’t freeze in the winter, unlike Ukraine. DNR and LNR announced that they would be willing to sell their coal to Ukraine, should Kiev ask. However, Ukraine is proudly keeping silence preferring to freeze to death.
The Rabid Russophobia in Ukraine
When we talk about the situation in Ukraine today, it’s hard not to notice the exceptionally rabid Russophobia that permeates every pore of Ukraine’s existence. I grew up in Odessa, which still is a part of the artificial state of Ukraine. I went to school with kids from extremely diverse backgrounds. I studied Ukrainian since second grade. My mother was Ukrainian. I traveled all over Ukraine, all over the former USSR and all over the world. I am someone who has repeatedly accurately predicted major global events and developments… I have never seen anything like this, and could never imagine something like this happening in Ukraine.
When I say I’ve never seen anything like this I mean the turnaround that Ukraine has experienced since 1990, when I said goodbye to those parts forever. Sure, in certain parts of the world, for example in the Middle East, the West is ardently hated. But such hatred is based on centuries of Western aggression. It was no different in the 20th or 12th century (recall the Crusades). Yes, there is a pathological hatred of Russia in the West (excluding the sane parts of Western society). But the story hasn’t changed whether you look at the 20th, 19th, 18th, 17th, or earlier centuries.
What is artificially called Ukraine, and what was called historically Malorossia and Novorossia, before that Kievskaya Rus and Galitskaya Rus, is a completely different story. It is the same culture and people as Russia, who speak the same Russian language – granted, with some variations. There are cultures so much more different from the core Russian culture that nevertheless feel absolutely at home in Russia, considering the Russian culture their own.
Moreover, a Gallop poll conducted in 2008 on the post-Soviet space concluded that 5/6th of the residents of Ukraine consider Russian their main native language. Source: Anatoly Vasserman.
Therefore, it is absolutely impossible to explain what is happening in Ukraine from the cultural difference standpoint. The explanation is found elsewhere.
Clearly, should a complete freedom of expression and equal status with Ukrainian be given to Russian, very soon Ukraine would stop needing to be independent as the same culture and language will draw people from Russia and Ukraine together. This is exactly what those who want to divide and conquer, who want to assert their local power, cannot allow. To preserve the sovereignty of Ukraine’s power hungry elites and various imperial and global ambitions of NWO elites, it is necessary to discriminate against the rights of the majority of the population, it is necessary to prevent the population from speaking and thinking in their native language. Hence forced ukrainization and other ugly things I will talk about below.
I have been following Ukraine very closely ever since the maidan started in the end of 2013, and I have noticed a very interesting metamorphosis. If in the beginning of 2014 all Ukraine politicians, including Yanukovich and Poroshenko, absolutely always spoke Ukrainian in public to emphasize their ‘ukraine-ness,’ presently, Ukraine politicians, including rabid Russophobes, ukro-nazis and Poroshenko himself, speak Russian all the time during press conferences and Rada meetings. Of course, they also always spoke Russian in private because this is a much more natural language for them to speak. There are two reasons for that: 1. After threatening to nuke all the Russians, and after the massive exodus out of Ukraine, they are now trying to pacify the Russian-speaking majority in the country that it’s safe to stay. 2. This is also a bid for votes.
The rhetoric has changed like this: “we are not against Russian language or the Russian-speakers, we are against the big, threatening Russia that used to give us free gas and now is refusing to do so; we are against the mean Russia that used to subsidize our economy since Soviet times, and now is refusing to do so. Please, feel free to speak Russian anywhere you go, no one is going to beat you up or kill you for that any more (they did during and after maidan), but we’ll still ban ALL Russian papers, TV or journalists. They are all terrorists because they dare to tell the truth about what’s really happening in Ukraine.”
Certainly, some of this utter stupidity combined with pathological hatred had been brewing under the surface for a long time. In fact, there have always been two Ukraines: one was this nice and peaceful, sometimes exceedingly naive and sleepy place where I grew up; another – the vicious, the hateful, hiding in the shadows and secretly awaiting its chance to attack. This second place was continuously nourished and fed for centuries by certain forces from the West. The flame of hatred was kept artificially alive so at the right moment it could break through and scorch everything in sight.
The fire could have been much worse and the devastation could have been much bigger, if not for the absolute brilliance and level-headedness of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, and his team.
Post-Soviet Republics and Russia
To understand the background of the Ukrainian situation and its artificial Russophobia, it’s useful to look at other post-Soviet republics.
During Soviet days, the neighboring Moldova was in mint condition due to constant infusions of resources by the Russian Federation – the same thing that happened in Ukraine and other Soviet republics. Brezhnev in particular had a soft spot for Moldova as he worked there at one point. Originally, Brezhnev was from Ukraine, and he heavily invested in Ukraine as well. Russia promoted local cultures, invested and industrialized heavily in ALL 14 Soviet republics, including in large part the Baltics – Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania – who now love to talk about how “Russians oppressed them.”
After the USSR collapse, Russia withdrew from all former republics to deal with her own problems, and as a result most republics quickly became poor and destitute.
Moldova’s elections are coming up and the country is being torn between the EU and Eurasian Union. While the majority of the population wants to be a part of the Eurasian Union, the elites are dragging the country towards EU and towards absorption by Romania. The amount of anti-Russian propaganda in Moldova is mind-boggling as well. In 1990-1992 Moldova went through today’s Ukraine scenario, on a smaller scale. The result was that the richest, most industrialized and productive part of then Moldova, Pridnestrovie, seceded. Presently, other parts of Moldova are threatening to secede, especially Gagauzia and the north. Much more here: LRL2: Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
I am preparing a separate Earth Shift Report that will address the Baltics and particularly, Latvia, which just had parliamentary elections. Stay tuned for that.
Incidentally, neither Latvia nor Estonia ever existed as separate states. These were territories that passed from Germany and Sweden to Russia as a purchase or based on a peace treaty. I could go much deeper in history, but suffice it to say that it was Lenin, who for the first time gave Latvia and Estonia a status of an independent ‘state.’ These ‘states’ only exist thanks to Lenin’s decree. Others, such as Ukraine, only existed as ‘Soviet Socialist Republics’ in the context of the Soviet Union. Lenin was the ‘founding father’ of their respective nations. It’s interesting that instead of adoring Lenin, all these ‘independent and democratic nations’ hate him pretty viciously and destroy his monuments. Just shows the level of reasons and lucidity of these people.
Out of 14 republics (excluding the Russian Federation), only Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan managed to preserve their Soviet-built enterprises and make them pay in the new era. Belarus also managed to build on them, creating the so-called ‘Belorussian miracle.’ Belarus succeeded because of the cosy relationship with Russia, therefore getting gas at heavily discounted price which makes its exports very competitive. The latter three – due to their own huge reserves of oil and gas, discovered and industrialized by Russia.
Another place that managed to preserve the Soviet inheritance is the break-away republic of Pridnestrovie (formerly part of Moldova) – but without any oil or gas.
The rest squandered their Soviet inheritance to various degree. However, like spoiled brats, some of them blamed Russia for their own mistakes and thievery. The spoiled brats in this case are Georgia, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine. These are all former republics that look to the West. When the USSR fell apart they lost Russia as that ‘parent’ that took care of them, oftentimes spoiling them by giving them more than leaving for herself. Now brats want to latch onto the next ‘surrogate parent’ – EU. The goal is to take, giving little in return. However, the West doesn’t work that way. They won’t give anything for free, in fact they like to take more than they give. Meanwhile, Russia also learned her lesson and doesn’t want to squander her resources for nothing any more.
Thus, the countries that are used to latching on to someone stronger are left in the cold. This breeds irrational hatred that can be maliciously manipulated.
Here is a crucial point to understand about Russia! Unlike the Western empires, such as UK, US, Spain and France, who looted and drained resources of those countries they conquered, Russia drained herself to give to her satellites. Such imbalance had to end badly: on Russia’s side, due to the resentment of the core Russian population; on the side of the republics, due to their sense of absolute entitlement.
As a result, in the 1990s – 2000s, a very strange situation developed, when Russia still supplied Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine and Moldova with gas based on the heavily subsidized Soviet-entitlement-style prices, and in return, Russia got bashing, backstabbing and direct provocations from said republics. At the very same time, large parts, if not most populations of these republics spoke Russian and lived off Russian tourism and banking. A great example of this is the Baltics: Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. The same three Baltic republics, plus Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia, while displaying animosity and openly threatening Russia with NATO expansion, happily continued exporting massive amounts of their products to Russia. This ended recently when Russia adopted a new import policy and embargo.
Subsidizing all these republics was all fine and good while USSR was doing well, but since it took away the resources from Russia proper and gave them disproportionately to the periphery, discontent grew in Russia when the USSR started collapsing. This generated a desire to be separate from the former ethnic republics in Russia proper, which didn’t help with the general relationship with said republics. Russia eventually recovered and started doing on average better than during Soviet times, thus proving that Russian resources had been indeed drained by the periphery subsidies.
But at the same time that Russia withdrew from the republics, US advisors, Soros, NGOs and NWO neocon/neoliberal influences moved in. Presently, we are observing the disastrous results of Russia’s withdrawal from the geopolitically important territories.
However, eventually the pull of Russia, affinity with her culture and worldview, combined with the economic benefits of working in Russia, proved to be so enormous that before long, massive numbers of immigrants from former Soviet republics flooded Russian cities and countryside.
The ignorant president of the USA, Obama, in a speech designed to calm down the Baltics (Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania), recently stated that Russia is so bad that no one wants to live there.
In reality, Russia is #2 country in the world for immigration after USA. At this rate, it will become #1 pretty soon. Massive numbers of residents of various post-Soviet republics work in Russia as guest workers. This especially concerns Ukraine (5.5mln Ukrainians out of arguably 39 million population: 45mln minus 2mln in Crimea and 4 mln in DNR and LNR) and Moldova (700,000+ out of 3.6 mln population). Kyrgyzstan and Armenia numbers are even higher as 1/2 of the population or more work in Russia. Large numbers immigrate from Georgia, Korea, and Central Asia. There are over 3 million Chinese immigrants in Russia. There is growing immigration from the West as well.
Meanwhile, up to 1/2 of the population of the Baltics immigrated to the West. Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are empty.
Western Propaganda in Ukraine
The Western style propaganda war was unleashed in the oligarch and Western NGO controlled Ukrainian media throughout the 1990s and 2000s. It has culminated between 2004 Orange Revolution and now. Soros-sponsored history books rewrote the entire history of Ukraine to prove that Ukrainians were completely separate from Russians. Western-trained journalists and Western-sponsored newspapers and TV have been promoting “western values’ and bashing anything Russian for over 20 years.
Most journalists from Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries were trained in Poland. Poland acted, and still does, as the massive training camp for anti-Russian media, opposition politicians and color revolutionary training (meaning how to throw Molotov cocktails more effectively and how to set buildings on fire). Trainers in these training seminars and camps are almost exclusively American, Canadian or British. Russian TV did some stories on these secret seminars held oftentimes in an inconspicuous Polish neighborhood. They obtained the lists of instructors with clearly English-sounding names. When they tried to film the inside through the window or glass door, the curtains would be drawn immediately or the door barricaded – all that caught on film.
As some of you may recall, just recently Poland was also implicated in the secret CIA prison and illegal torture scandal. CIA kidnapped people by the thousands and shipped them to the Polish secret prisons, where US torture laws didn’t apply, in violation I might add, of the EU laws.
As a result of this massive subversion of Ukraine, the old spites have been brought out of the woodwork and spun in the media to suit agendas alien to simple Ukrainians. Most of these spites belonged to the western Ukraine nazis, humiliated as a result of their defeat in WWII together with Hitler; others were the old spites of Poland or Lithuania whose past imperial ambitions were defeated more than once by Russia. These irrelevant spites were imposed on the rest of Ukraine.
It is clear that $5 billion Victoria Nuland was bragging about that US spent ‘to subvert Ukraine,’ wasn’t all they spent over the years. They had to pay off the sell-out journalists, fiction history book creators, politicians, and let’s not forget the equipping, training and financing the ukro-nazis from western Ukraine.
The West also had to feed the greediest of them all – Ukraine oligarchs who have been controlling and strangling the poor Ukraine since 1991. Poroshenko – real name Valtsman – is one of them. Valtsman Sr., the father of the Ukraine president, was an underground millionaire and crook from Odessa, who served several years in jail for stealing goods by the trainload during Soviet times. Greed runs in the family.
Incidentally, Ukraine’s president Poroshenko is one of the oligarchs controlling the media. He famously said that he would never sell the Channel 5 he owns. Here is the fact he doesn’t even try to hide: through his Channel 5 he had been influencing the public opinion during the 2004 Orange Revolution and throughout this year’s maidan and subsequent presidential election. So do a handful of other oligarchs controlling the country.
The scale of the lies of the Ukraine media can only be compared to the German Nazi propaganda circa Hitler. Some believe they have gone much further. As much as the Western MSM propaganda is mind-boggling, Ukraine today takes the cake. Russians are constantly accused of invasion, despite the fact that to this day, not a shred of evidence, nor a single picture, footage, or any other conclusive document has been presented. Ukraine MSM routinely lies, showing the Donbass self-defense, consisting of local citizens and volunteers from other countries, including Serbia, France and Spain, and calling it Russian troops. Kiev MSM routinely lies that the Donbass self-defense has shot at local citizens (their own families, in other words) and blew up their own houses. With that, the footage shown would be that of the destruction caused by the Ukraine army shelling. According to the Kiev media, the mass graves found in Donbass occurred because those people killed themselves with their hands tied behind their backs, then neatly dug out graves and buried themselves. Why hasn’t Himmler thought of this! Yeah, I forgot, Himmler was a bit smarter than that.
Meanwhile, Ukraine army openly hired well-paid mercenaries, including those from Poland, Georgia, Romania, Sweden, and other Western countries. Some of these mercenaries bombed innocent civilians in Donbass. Per reports, various US advisors still work by thousands in Ukraine.
Of course we all know the lies associated with MH17 downing.
At the same time, Ukrainians started officially referring to Russians as ‘Moskali’ – derogatory ‘from Moscow.’ By that logic, citizens of Siberia are also from Moscow. This is a direct attempt to incite hatred. This is also done to diminish anyone who is Russian – after all, Moscow is rather small compared to the entire Russian territory.
The word ‘Moskal’ isn’t Ukrainian, but Polish. The role of Poland in this whole disaster in Ukraine is very prominent and is quite a separate story. At one point, when the tribunal will be looking into war crimes in Ukraine, I suspect much ugliness will surface about the extent of Poland’s involvement.
At the same time, the citizens of Donbass are being made look like insects. They call them “coloradi,” as in ‘Colorado beetle’ because the ‘Georgievskaya Lentochka’ – the historic Russian ribbon worn by many as a reminder of the Great Victory in WWII (you’ve probably seen such flags and ribbons) consists of black and orange stripes.
Georgievskaya Lentochka commemorating the courage and sacrifice in the Great War (WWII)
This is a deliberate belittling and dehumanizing of the Russian-speakers as part of the massive brainwashing campaign of the Ukrainian population. If they are insects, then it’s fine to kill and bomb them. It’s hard for most humans to kill other humans. But if they are insects, or separatists, or Russian invasion – no problem. I talked about how the divide and conquer strategy worked historically in Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? All this is happening in front of our very eyes in Ukraine and other post-Soviet countries. The one difference is that presently the power is shifting rapidly from the West to the East, so the old playbook doesn’t work any more.
In reality, Georgievskaya Lentochka draws on the coloring of the tiger and symbolizes courage, power and discernment.
This ancient symbol is also a combination of the sun – orange color, and earth – black color. In other words, it’s a unity of the heaven and earth wisdom, thus symbolizing the yin/yang balance.
I have recently listened to the popular radio show by a well-known Russian comedian and film-maker Mikhail Zadornov called “Neformat: The Divided States of America.” Zadornov always had an independent streak and sharp tongue, often criticizing powers that be, including Putin. Even he now supports Putin. That said, he was a close friend of Yeltsin in the early 1990s, and he was at the time, as many others in Russia, pro-Western democracy. He admits he changed his views ever since, which is a mark of a smart man – only fools don’t evolve. Here is a quote from Zadornov: “Don’t malign the Soviet Union, don’t cut off your roots. Those who spit at their past, don’t have a future. By the way, all those who lived during Soviet times now recall it as the best time of their life. Back then, there were many more good, kind people compared to today, when we live under capitalism.”
Incidentally, here is the video in which ukro-nazis are demolishing the largest in the world historic monument to Lenin and beating up people who try to object: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy, and related, The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 2: Letter From a Russian Liberal.
Only then we can defeat Russia when we make Russians in Ukraine hate Russians in Russia – whatever Western politician said that in the 19th century knew exactly what he was talking about. Think about it! If I heard this quote, so did those in the West whose life’s dream it is to do away with Russia. And as we see from what’s going on in Ukraine, they are acting on it. We live in the information matrix, where those who control the info-stream control the world. The image of Russia as an enemy was created in the past 23 years of ‘independence’ in many of the post-Soviet countries. Of course, in each case they had to draw on legitimate, or in most cases imaginary, historic reasons. Sometimes history was falsified, and sometimes it was turned upside down. The absolutely impossible to believe change that happened to Ukraine in the short 20 years is one of the best illustrations of how history is re-written and falsified just as soon as it happens. However, the roots of Russophobia, going hand in hand with a profoundly close connection of Russia and Ukraine, go much deeper in history.
What are the Roots of the Radical Russophobia in Ukraine?
“You said that Russians didn’t suppress the minorities, and that it was more the other way around. That seems logical, but it also raises the issue with the Ukraine today. Many say the radical Ukrainian sentiment was basically started in the USSR. Much milder than today, of course, but strong enough that it went wild once independence occurred. You might want to go over that in a post at some point. If you keep telling people that Russians are bad, including people in the historically Russian areas of the Ukraine, they will eventually agree.”
This is an excellent question raised by Paul Plane of the Plane Truth show in the comment to my post: Raising Chi Against Hatred: The Suppressed Story of Russian Songs that Unite World Cultures. The Plane Truth/Time Monk Radio are friends of the FuturisTrendcast (see Lada Ray interviews with the Plane Truth here). I addressed parts of this issue in various articles and interviews, but I do realize how difficult it is for those who grew up in the West to reconcile this with all the lies they had been fed since childhood. In this article I have put together a comprehensive analysis of this important issue. Note, I am just scratching the surface; there are deeper and very fascinating reasons, which concern everyone alive on the planet. I will eventually touch upon those in my future Earth Shift Reports and LadaRayLive shows.
First, let’s start with a few psychological premises and historic truths that may open your eyes
1. In any culture at all times there will be a certain amount of dissent against central power or against majority – sometimes justified, sometimes based on personal likes, dislikes, disappointments and power-mongering aspirations, whether justified or not. How far this dissent will go depends on factors such as: the strength of central power; support of the population; is there an economic crisis/collapse; and very importantly, are any foreign powers feeding said dissent with money, weapons and subversive propaganda. When above conditions don’t apply, the dissent is negligible or dormant.
2. Humans at large are prone to jealousy for someone more successful than they are. This usually comes from the personal sense of powerlessness, when people feel they aren’t in control of their own life. This applies to both individuals and countries.
3. Humans at large are prone to fear and panic, as well as hatred, born from fear and the above sense of powerlessness.
4. Ukraine had been subjected over the years to all of the above. Ukrainian dissent was dormant during the Soviet years, when Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was considered second most economically developed republic of the Union, after Russian Federation. This happened because Russia/USSR flooded Ukraine with technology, advanced specialists, industrialization, and simply with money.
5. Apart from the above, Ukrainians do have this interesting quality, particular to them. I did write about that in one of my past articles, where I pointed out the very well-known Ukrainian saying: “If I can’t eat them all, I’ll bite into each” (sounds like a vampire). In Ukrainian: “Yaksho ne z’im to ponadkusuyu,” meaning, if I can’t have something, no one else will.
See, Russians never had any such saying; quite the opposite – Russians are very generous, oftentimes to a fault. As we know, national sayings aren’t born by accident – they appear and take root based on the long-term observation of the manifest human nature. It seems, Ukrainians had the opportunity to observe the ‘if I can’t have it, no one will’ type of behavior among their brethren quite a bit.
The USSR collapse aftermath
In 1991, Soviet Union fell apart peacefully and quietly, practically on a handshake. Following that, Russians withdrew from everywhere on post-Soviet space to deal with their own collapse and internal problems, leaving at the mercy of the nationalistic, mega-corrupt, and oftentimes openly fascist governments over 25 million ethnic Russians who lived in various post-Soviet republics. In addition to that, another 100+ million people of various ethnic origins, who considered themselves belonging to the Greater Russian culture, were stranded in different corners of the post-Soviet space, now foreigners and illegals in Russia proper, which they considered their greater mother culture. Add to that another few hundred million Russians and pro-Russian all over the world suffering from a massive confusion and withdrawal. This, as Vladimir Putin once said (and I concur), is the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times. The Russian people now constitute the largest EVER divided ethnicity on planet Earth.
The turmoil and confusion in people’s heads was tremendous, and this included not only ethnic Russians – as I said, it also included about 100 million of others on post-Soviet space who, being Ukrainians, Belarus, Georgians, Kazakhs, Uzbeks, Armenians, Abkhazians, Moldavians, Kyrgyzs, Gagauzs, Latvians, Poles, Bulgarians, Jews, also considered themselves Russian. Some people had to go through a lot of hardship, and some developed resentment, feeling they were left in the cold by the country they considered their mother culture. Some moved to Russia as guest workers with very little rights (but making a lot more money than in their native parts), and some chose to emigrate abroad, where salaries were much higher, but life much more boring and alien to them.
However, as Russia started recovering, and the West’s economic conditions began worsening, the cultural re-integration of the Greater Russian culture slowly but surely gained speed. It has been going on for years – through movies, songs, books and art competitions (as depicted in my above-mentioned article) as well as through humor of the traditional game show called KVN. KVN is older than I am; its fans are many and it manages to unite people not only from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and the Baltics, but also from Georgia (just recently a sworn enemy of Russia), UK, Germany and Israel. There are now Africans, Chinese and Koreans playing KVN. I write about some of the above issues in Why US/EU/NWO Can Never Defeat Russia. Also watch: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU and read Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union”.
Russia started recovering from the 1990s knockout AFTER Putin came to power. When Putin first appeared on stage in 1999, he wasn’t taken seriously; in fact, he received threats and pretty humiliating remarks from other political forces. It was at the time when he was looking for support for the upcoming 2000 elections. To clear the way for Putin, Yeltsin stepped down ahead of time, and I recall that moment very clearly. Although I resided in the US, I listened to the nationally televised address by Yeltsin from the Kremlin on December 31, 1999. After traditionally congratulating everyone with the New Year 2000 and with the beginning of the new millennium, Yeltsin publicly apologized for all he had done wrong and asked for the Russian people’s forgiveness. Then he announced he was stepping down.
I wasn’t concerned with geopolitics back than; nor did I care about Yeltsin. But I did care about Russia and her people. I felt immediately that something very important was about to happen. Time has proven that my feeling was correct. The story of who and what was behind Yeltsin stepping down and Putin coming to power is extremely interesting in its own right. I will discuss that in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: The Putin Enigma.
When Ukraine became “independent” in 1991, everyone in the West, as well as many inside Ukraine itself, predicted that it would become the beacon of how the newly FREE countries liberated from the Soviet ‘occupation,’ should develop and grow. It was said that Ukraine would be the beacon of democracy and a stellar performer. It was a general Western and Ukrainian consensus that Ukraine would develop and grow much better than Russia. The demise and a full disintegration of Russia was also predicted in the West, and among those Russians who considered themselves smart, Western-oriented intellectuals. I believe some of those who predicted all this were Kissinger, Brzezinski and Albright. From that I make the inevitable conclusion: IT IS BECAUSE USA LISTENS TO ‘ANALYSTS’ LIKE THESE, US POLICIES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE A COMPLETE FAILURE AND DISASTER. I suggest everyone start listening to the predictions of those who know what they are talking about. Yours truly is a good start. 😉 My predictions can be found here.
Ukraine was juxtaposed to Russia as a great democratic success. Same was said in the 1990/2000s about Georgia, Latvia, Estonia – and look what is happening in these countries now: empty coffers, skyrocketing debt, 1/4-1/2 (and more) of the population are migrant workers in Russia or West as Soviet-built economy has been destroyed. Meanwhile, Russia turned around and continued adjusting, growing and developing.
Ukraine experimented with being “independent” for 23 years. The result is the severely damaged economy, hyper-inflation, currency collapse, civil war, oligarch takeover and takeover by foreign powers. If Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic’s GDP ranked #10 in the world in 1990, independent Ukraine’s GDP ranks #63 in the world as of 2013 (data by Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, former Rada deputy, leader of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine). Note, this GDP was calculated in 2013, before the maidan and Kiev junta managed to destroy the rest of Ukraine’s economy.
If they truly cared for their country instead of their oversized egos and fat offshore bank accounts in payment for their services to NWO elites, they would have taken a good look at what THEY did wrong that caused this disaster. But of course it’s just so much easier to blame Russia.
In the past 23 years the MSM, politics and education were gradually taken over by the West together with the Ukrainian oligarchs with Swiss villas and wealth stored in Western offshores, whose interests coincided with the interests of the West.
Soros-funded history books have been fed to school children. According to this fiction Ukrainians descended from the unknown tribe of the ancient Ukrs – absolutely separate from Russians, and not from the Kievan and Galitskaya Rus. Russia in these books is portrayed as aggressor. In reality Russia saved Ukraine from the invasion and annihilation by Poles and Turks 360 years ago by accepting Ukraine’s plea to admit it into Russia. Ukraine history books portrayed Crimea and Novorossia as part of its territory, completely disregarding the truth – more about that later. In the Ukr history books Jesus Christ, Julius Caesar, as well as Adam and Eve, were all… genuine Ukrainians. It would be funny if it wasn’t that sad.
During the prosperous Soviet days the Ukrainian nationalism and envy were dormant. They woke up and proliferated with a vengeance when the economic collapse hit the country, therefore proving the old American adage that invariably ‘it’s the economy, stupid.’ It is interesting that Ukraine’s ruling class and the majority of the population, especially those nationalist or fascist-inclined, are in a complete and total denial as to what is happening in their country. Again – it’s so much more convenient to blame Russia!
The economy destruction gave birth to political unrest and the super-corrupt and sold-out elites. Such juicy pre-requisites coupled with pretty ignorant and savage population are a boon for the West in order to weaken Russia further. There is no question that Russians were asleep at the wheel geopolitically since 1985, when Gorbachev came to power. Later, Russia had to deal with her own demons… and own super-corrupt politicians and oligarchs. When Russians pretty much pulled out of Ukraine on all levels (this applies to the entire post-Soviet space), US/EU/NWO rolled in right away. And presto! This volatile confluence of events and conditions created the gross imbalance we are observing today.
It may seem from all I have said that Ukraine has never been a conscious ‘geopolitical subject,’ but rather an ‘object of geopolitics.’ It is actually true. Ukraine never had a successful run as an independent country.
Moreover, Ukraine was only successful when it was a part of Russia. This statement can be verified year after year with clear historic facts. Ukraine reached its pinnacle as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic during Soviet times. From a small, agricultural and poor area around Kiev and what is now central Ukraine, it grew into a huge territory, courtesy of various Soviet leaders, at the expense of others. Ukraine’s economy, if taken separately from the USSR totals, was ranked No. 10 in the world; and Russians even made sure Ukraine had its own representation in the UN and other international bodies. Of course, all this was promptly forgotten by the nezalezhna – once Ukraine turned independent.
It wasn’t my plan to bring up the issue of karma in this article, but how can I resist when it’s staring me in the eye: where you are going, there you are! In the words of my novelette, CATHARSIS (Legend of the Lemurians), “Karma can be a beautiful maiden… or a bitch.”
THE REAL HISTORY OF UKRAINE
No, the anti-Russian sentiment wasn’t born during Soviet times. If anything, any real Ukrainian should be grateful to the Soviets. After all, it was Lenin in 1918-1922, who ‘gave’ all of east and south, including Donbass (Lugansk and Donetsk), Zaporozhie, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, Odessa, Kherson and Nikolaev to Ukraine. This was done to appease the existing ultra-nationalist sentiment there, plus to give the poor, agricultural Ukraine (What I call ‘Ukraine proper’ – the areas concentrated around Kiev, central and northern Ukraine) an industrial base and educated work force, which could bring them sustainable revenue. The goal was to significantly pull up their standard of living. Under Stalin, this idea was expanded as Russians built an extremely strong industrial base in Ukraine, off which Ukraine has been living till today. The fact that they, and their oligarchs, never modernized or added to that base, but like a bad drunk preferred to squander their rich Soviet inheritance, speaks volumes of their ability to self-govern. That notwithstanding, they blame Russia.
As many of my readers know, I grew up in Odessa, a beautiful and wealthy Black Sea port and resort, built by the Russians in 1793. Just like Crimea and other productive and wealthy areas of the South and East, Odessa became a part of Ukraine due to the short-sighted actions of the Soviet leaders; in this case, Lenin.
This is the historic truth. However, the ignorant and sold-out media, politicians and writers in the West and Ukraine will routinely lie and blame Russia for “invading Odessa.” The truth is, Odessa always was and always will be a Russian city.
I once came across an American/Israeli novelist Daniel Silva who is routinely producing bestseller spy thrillers based, unfortunately, on outright lies. I once picked up a book written by this ‘novelist’ in which action took place in Russia, Crimea and Odessa. The descriptions were so bad and so far from the truth that it was clear the man had no idea whatsoever how either Odessa or Crimea should look, the names were absolutely wrong, and of course – both Crimea and Odessa were occupied by the bad Russians, until in 1991 the poor Ukrainians (with completely idiotically sounding non-Ukrainian names) reclaimed their CORE (??) territories of Crimea and Odessa. I haven’t seen a bigger BS in my life.
This is how Western propaganda works – it’s not just MSM or politicians. They pay big bucks to sold-out puppets like the above-mentioned novelist Silva to produce a lie in a pretty wrapper. This alone gives us a good idea how one’s book becomes a bestseller in the US – write a lie big enough, preferably about Russia, China or the Middle East, and you are guaranteed a best-seller status. Needless to say, I dropped that book like a hot potato. Guess what, I see Daniel Silva books all the time on bestseller lists. Looks like their propaganda keeps working.
Every library and store would carry shelves upon shelves of lies written by professional crooks. So many will read them and think this is the truth. In the information vacuum what choice do they have? And that’s how you create zombified, manipulated, brainwashed populace that you twist into a pretzel on moment’s notice.
I write the TRUTH in my books and this is why they don’t carry them in libraries and stores. Do check out my paperbacks and ebooks, and support my writing by buying them! Incidentally, all my ebooks are on Pre-Holiday Book Sale! See more in BOOKS.
Just like in Crimea, 100% of Odessans always spoke Russian and/or a special Odessan mixed language. Recently, I was watching clips with pro-Ukrainian, pro-ukronazi demonstration in Odessa; they showed young people and families with children who spoke and carried slogans in Ukrainian. I can assure you, no real Odessan in his/her right mind ever speaks Ukrainian – these were the Kiev junta plants. To me, this little clip proved the level of lies, and the crude, unprofessional deception of the Kiev junta. They couldn’t get the real citizens for this protest, so they brought in the traveling circus, and with children – a nice touch!

My high school was located on Gagarin Street.
It was also Stalin who ‘added’ to Ukraine – note, to Ukraine, NOT Russia! – some regions of Western Ukraine that belonged previously to Romania, Hungary and Poland. Russia did have a strong historic claim on these areas (in medieval times this area was called Galitskaya Rus and the population was ethnically Russian, Russin or Malorussian), but they were taken over or annexed by other countries in the last few centuries, until Stalin annexed them in 1940 to extend the USSR border, thus creating a buffer zone in case of Hitler’s attack. Presently, these are territories that may be disputed by the above-mentioned countries.
And of course, Ukrainians should have been grateful to Russians forever due to Khrushchev giving them Crimea in 1954. Instead, they treated the Crimea and its people like…. I will omit the word that comes to mind. Together with all other undeserved Soviet inheritance, they squandered the prized possession such as Crimea. Incidentally, you can listen to the Lada Ray Live show on YouTube for more on Crimea and the theft of the Crimean Scythian gold. Listen to this episode.
Earlier history of Ukraine
16-19th century. When large parts of what was called at different times the Kievan (Kievskaya) Rus, Galitskaya Rus, Malorossia, and subsequently, Ukraine, were taken over at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, some of the local population was gradually re-molded into the Western-centric mentality and brainwashed.
In the 19th century Austria-Hungary built concentration camps for some of western Ukrainians, who always called themselves Russins and who – oh, surprise – considered themselves Russians. These camps were built for those who didn’t submit to the ‘we are separate from Russia’ ideology. There was a well covered-up genocide of the Russins in western Ukraine when the whole villages were either burned down or forcibly converted into Catholicism.
Divide and conquer: It is generally understood by researchers that project ‘Ukraine is a separate nation’ was born in Austria-Hungary in the 18th century. Later, it was adopted and expanded by Poland. The goal was to tear Ukrainians away from Russia. From the standpoint of an occupier it’s not good when a part of your country (parts of Ukraine, in fact parts of Russian historic and cultural territory, were occupied by Poland and Austria-Hungary, and before that, by Lithuania) considers you an illegal occupier and keeps looking at Russia as their motherland. Look at the striking parallels with today’s Donbass! They don’t consider Ukraine their motherland; instead they keep raising Russian flags, declaring allegiance to Russia.
Project Ukraine: 360 years ago cossack Bogdan Khmelnitsky and his people voted to re-unite with Russia. Other choices that didn’t get much popular support were joining the Osmanic Turkey or Poland. Russia accepted the territory with the capital in Kiev, which at that point was called Malorossia. Novorossia (currently the East and South of Ukraine) was NOT a part of Malorossia.
In medieval times, the neighboring Poland and Lithuania had big emperial designs. There were times when both Poland and Lithuania grew through conquest of neighboring Slavic lands. The back and forth struggles between states continued for centuries, until during the Time of Troubles Poland, which by then absorbed Lithuania, tried to conquer Russia, installing a Polish king on the Russian throne. As my readers may know from reading my Predictions and articles, any attempt to conquer Russia always ends very badly for the conqueror wannabe.
The popular uprising of the Russian people against occupiers produced true heroes and leaders. One of the heroes was local peasant Ivan Susanin, who volunteered to show the Polish army a secret path into Moscow to ensure their surprise attack, but instead led them into swamps, where he sacrified his life dying together with the Poles, thus saving Moscow from imminent invasion. The leaders of the 1612 uprising were citizen-commoner Kuzma Minin and Prince (Knyaz’) Pozharsky, who organized a grass-roots army financed by rich merchants and simple citizens alike. It was a truly popular movement when people donated their last money and when everyone rose regardless of their age and status in society.
The defeat of the occupiers was only the beginning. The result of every aggression against Russia is always the same. The result of this aggression was that eventually both Lithuania and Poland became parts of the Russian Empire. As I said, it’s never a good idea to attack Russia.

From this it is clear that some in Poland, and Lithuania too, had kept a certain amount of resentment due to their historic defeat. Interestingly enough, while Ukraine was now a part of Russia, Polish lords (pani) still were the largest land owners and serf-owners in Ukraine. Russians didn’t expropriate their private property. Serfs were Ukrainian peasants, sort of half-slaves who were owned and could be sold or bought by their lords. The Polish pani were very vicious and cruel as documented in many Ukrainian works of literature. The greatest Ukrainian poet, Taras Shevchenko (see more about him below) dedicated his whole life to exposing and telling the truth about the exploitation of Ukrainians by the Polish pani. There were lots of peasant uprisings with manors and palaces being burned.
In fact, Ukraine was so named in Poland, not in Russia. In Russia the territory around Lvov, Kiev and Poltava was called Malorossia (or Russia Minor). ‘Ukraina’ ‘vkraina’ or ‘okraina’ means the outskirts in many Slavic languages. To Poles Ukraine was the outskirts of their once bigger empire. The name was used parallel with the official name of Malorossia in everyday language for quite some time, but it gained popularity since mid-19th century thanks to the Polish intellectuals from Lvov.
The name of the man who was the driving force behind ‘Ukraine is separate from Russia’ project was Kalinka. He was a Polish ksendz (Catholic priest). In 1864 he created a plan to separate Ukraine from Russia following a historic event in 1861 when Russian Emperor Alexander freed serfs. The now free farmers were granted some of the lands that Polish pani-shliakhta considered their own. There was a rather significant Polish shliakhta insurrection in 1963. However, that insurrection was quelled not by the Russian army or police, but by the self-armed army consisting of former serfs themselves who were promised lands of those Polish lords who participated in the insurrection. Clearly, the Polish shliakhta never forgot their humiliation and defeat. The idea was if they can’t have Ukraine, then it won’t belong to Russia either.
Incidentally, current Ukrainian anthem adopted in the 1990s was also written in the beginning of the 20th century as a semi-joke by several Polish intellectuals from Lvov, plotting their revenge on Russia. The anthem is infamous for its depressive and incongruent lyrics, such as, “So far Ukraine is alive…” Meaning, they are expecting it to die soon? Talk about a self-fulfilling prophecy… The verses that became the present day Ukraine anthem were copied quite talentlessly, but with a purpose – to diminish and destroy – from the Polish anthem. In the Polish anthem there are words, “Poland is still alive (but unlike in the Ukraine anthem, the next line clarifies), while we are…” The clarifying line gives the whole thing an entirely different meaning.
Considering that Polish pani owned Ukraine lands and people, this is the first time in history the occupied are proudly singing the anthem written by their occupiers.
Opening the Pandora’s Box: since Ukraine wants to join the EU, Poles are preparing historic claims on Ukrainian lands they used to own. 70,000 such claims exist in Poland alone. There are also several thousand in Romania, Hungary and Israel. Ownership claims from the descendants of the dreaded Polish pani include agricultural lands, manors, villages, buildings, whole cities and factories.
A Note from Lada:
I will leave outside the scope of this article the discussion as to how close Ukrainians are to Russians, or how close Poles and Lithuanians are to Russians for that matter. Very close, I can assure you. However, here we are not talking of ancestral closeness, but of ideology. In medieval times this ideology was based on difference in religion, with Vatican/Catholicism being the aggressor. Later, in the 18th/19th century, it was based on ethnicity, falsification of historical roots and allegiance to the crown. In the 20th century, it became the communism vs. capitalism fight. And in the 21st century, they again dragged out the moth-eaten 18th-19th century’s falsified history and allegiance.
But wait! do you notice THE COMMON DENOMINATOR in all these cases? The ENEMY NUMBER 1 is ALWAYS RUSSIA! It doesn’t matter what ideology they peruse. What matters is how easy it is to brainwash and zombify humans.
As a comparative linguist and mystical futurist (see my articles about the Mysteries of Linguistics), I can tell you that the peoples of Europe, and by extension, of Eurasia, ARE the same people, or at least, very close relatives with the same roots. I can also tell you that in a cosmic sense, we are all ONE.
It is a shame that people who are so close can’t live in peace!
I’ll also add the following: it is clear to me that most of the world’s population does want to live in peace and cooperation, which includes the majority in the countries/continents I sometimes criticize, such as Ukraine, Poland, US, UK, and Europe. However, certain forces on our planet are after unlimited power at the expense of others. This ruthless drive for power and money is what creates wars and instability. These forces change their shape and flags in time and space, but their essence always remains the same. As long as people allow themselves to be led by their lowly emotions, such as fear, greed and anger, they will always be a willing cannon fodder and useful fools in the hands of these master manipulators.

Other examples: The same situation occurred in 2008 in South Ossetia/Abkhazia – Georgia war. Serbians will never forget how the former Yugoslavia was broken up and how Serbia was bombed in the 1990s. Today, the Crimea and Donbass-like scenario is taking place in parts of Moldova, specifically, Pridnestrovie and Gagauzia – both had referendums in which about 97% of citizens voted for re-uniting with Russia. I am following the Moldova/Pridnestrovie/Gagauzia story very closely, as it may explode any moment. See my article Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union” and special video report: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
Back to Ukraine. Of course we shouldn’t forget about the forced religious conversion of Ukrainians from Orthodoxy into Catholicism, which started around 17-18th century and continues till today. In those days religious conversion was the best way to divide cultures. Same happened in Serbia/Yugoslavia, where Muslim and Catholic religions were used to divide and pit against each the traditionally Orthodox Christian Southern Slavs.
The story of Ukrainian pro- and anti-Russian mentality is very well depicted in the famous historic story by Nikolay Gogol, Taras Bulba. It is the story of a Cossack and his two sons. The world-famous Russian author Nikolay Gogol was from Ukraine, and to him it would have never occurred to say that he wasn’t Russian. Same goes for the celebrated 19th century Ukrainian poet and thinker, Taras Shevchenko, whose whole life was spent in a fight against the Polish shliakhta, or Polish pani – rich Polish landowners who owned a lot of Ukraine’s lands. Shevchenko spoke up in protection of the simple Ukrainians who were exploited by the Polish shliakhta. Taras Shevchenko is called the ‘Great Kobzar’ in Ukraine and is celebrated as the biggest Ukrainian poet. Meanwhile, most of Shevchenko’s works are written in Russian, and only a small portion – in Ukrainian. Gogol wrote almost exclusively in Russian.
Taras Shevchenko saw the best and only protection for Ukraine in being a part of Russia, the same way as the leader of Ukraine Bogdan Khmelnitsky 360 years ago saw Ukraine’s future as one with Russia. Bogdan Khmelnitsky asked Russia to accept Ukraine as part of its territory and Russia said ‘yes,’ thus protecting Ukraine from a hostile takeover. By the way, 360 years ago, a truly democratic referendum was conducted in cities and villages to decide whether Ukraine should in fact join Russia. Khmelnitsky’s cossacks went from town to town and asked whether citizens wanted to be under Russia, Poland or Osmanic Empire. And everywhere citizens unanimously responded, “with Russia” (source: Dr. Natalia Vitrenko, leader of the progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine: Link). Since then, Ukraine has devolved substantially in terms of democracy.
The 18th century Ukrainian poet/philosopher Skovoroda wrote in his bio: “Russian philosopher.” Same goes for the 19th century Ukrainian poetess, Lesia Ukrainka (Lesia the Ukrainian). These people are not just anyone – their portraits are on the contemporary Ukraine currency.

Notice that they celebrated their heritage, just like a resident of Moscow, Rostov, Ryazan, or the Urals, would celebrate their own local heritage, but at the same time, they felt a part of the Greater Russian culture. Today’s Ukrainians have become masters at denying the obvious.
When I grew up in Odessa, our biggest park was, still is, called the Shevchenko Park. In school, we all learned the poetry of Taras Shevchenko in Ukrainian, although 100% of the multi-national population of Odessa ALWAYS spoke Russian (the language today’s Ukraine has tried to officially ban) and Odessa wasn’t even supposed to be a part of Ukraine. Just a reminder of how all-inclusive the Russian culture was and is, and how today’s Ukro-fascism is the complete opposite of that.
See my popular articles about Odessa with great images:
Interesting example: After WWII, Germany was divided into two countries. East Germany is mostly Prussia, another part of Germany is called Saxonia, yet another Bavaria. All these areas historically have their own dialects. There are about 50,000 Serbs in Germany that have lived there for millenia, except in today’s Germany they are called ‘Sorbs.’ Does it occur to anyone to say one part is German and another isn’t? Did it ever occur to anyone to deny east and west of Germany didn’t deserve to be together? No – they reunited as one nation. In parts of Germany they speak language the other parts have trouble understanding; yet, they all consider themselves German despite big differences in psychology and language.
Historic truth: From the above, we can already see that in 19th century and prior, those who are called today Ukrainians thought of themselves as Russian. Ukraine had a distinct, and very lovely dialect. Ukrainian was a dialect, along with Belorussian, until Lenin and the Bolsheviks decided to upgrade it to a language. Bolsheviks have done this to many other dialects on the Soviet space as well. Russian linguists oftentimes worked overtime to create alphabets for those small dialects that had no written language, thus upgrading them and giving them second life. This was the way Bolsheviks wanted to celebrate the diversity of Russia, elevating the dignity of small cultures. As a linguist I know a thing or two about that.
But the story goes deeper. During Peter the Great there was a war with Sweden. Appointed by Peter Ukraine’s governor (it was the Ukraine that didn’t include today’s East, South, West and Crimea), Ukrainian Cossack Getman Mazepa, betrayed Russia and sided with Sweden. Let’s also remember that Ukraine was still called Malorossia in those days. Here is a vivid illustration of how far today’s official Ukraine has gone: Ukrainian school history books describe Getman Mazepa as a hero. They also portray as a hero Stepan Bandera, Shukhevich and other ukro-nazis who headed SS Division Galichina and similar outfits during WWII, and who were responsible for massacring hundreds of thousands of Russians, Jews, Ukrainians and Poles.
The attempted Swedish invasion of Russia failed. Swedish king Karl lost to Peter in the Battle of Poltava. Poltava is a city located in today’s central Ukraine. It has to be noted that attempts to invade and conquer Russia by the West are as old as the world itself. I explained the West’s maniacal desire to conquer Russia in PREDICTONS and in Predictions: The Real Reasons for West’s Anti-Russian Sanctions. I will be expanding on my predictions eventually, so stay tuned.
Russians are well-aware of all these historic episodes, but they have been customarily closing their eyes to the facts, pretending it never happened in order to keep the “bad peace in the family,” following the Russian principle that ‘bad peace is better than a good war.’ They would usually do so until it were impossible to keep such peace and the rosy glasses that went with it.
Is Kiev really the Mother of all Russian Cities?
We have to dig even deeper from here. There is a vernacular floating around that ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities.’ This phrase was born of Lenin’s/Bolsheviks’ desire to appease Ukraine ultra-nationalists circa 1918-20 and to create the ‘brotherhood of nations.’ Admirable, but incredibly misguided. Russians customarily repeat this phrase, without thinking what it means.
In reality, during the medieval times Kiev was a large, important and rich city, but hardly the ‘mother of all Russian cities.’ The history of the Russian civilization was deliberately re-written and shortened to make it seem as if Russia was only a 1000 years old. The ancient Rus (Slavic) chronicles were burned and any evidence of the many, many millenia of the Rus (alternatively called Slavyano-Arian) culture all over the world, including in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the British Isles, Mediterranean, the Urals, Siberia, beyond the Arctic Circle, Egypt, and on North American continent, erased. However, all this information is now coming out as the new advanced scientific methods allow to read things that were unreadable before, and calculate mathematically past events that were falsified. The falsifications were so widespread that literally we can all throw out the entire history we ever studied, and learn it from scratch. This concerns Russia, Eurasia, Asia, Europe, America and the Middle East.
Extremely advanced Rus cities existed well before Kiev everywhere, including those places considered today too cold for human habitation, such as the Kolsky peninsula in the White Sea beyond the Arctic Circle, the northern Ural Mountains, Arctic Siberia near the North Pole, to name a few. It is proven that advanced civilizations existed as far as 40 thousand years ago, and it is believed that they also thrived much, much longer prior. On the other hand, very important Rus/Slavic cities also existed in Western Europe, including in what is today Mediterranean, Italy and Germany. This includes the famous historic cities, such as Venice, Verona, Vienna, Rome, Troy, Berlin, Bern, Pompei, to name just a few. Venice was built by ancient Slavs called Veneds, and so was Vienna. The close relatives of Veneds, Et-ruskans (in Russian: Et-russki) had built Rome. Look at the word “Ro-me.” Now look at the word “Rossiya.” You can say “Rus” and you can say “Ro-ssiya. “Ro-me” — “Ro-ssiya.”
The brainwashing was so great that even the majority of Russians, including most Russian scientists, Lenin and the Bolsheviks, went along with the “Rus is 1000 years of age” theory. That’s why they promoted Kiev as the most important, title city of the medieval Rus, from which the entire history of Russia supposedly began. (I write about some of this in the Forbidden Linguistics. Linguistics can help us uncover the hidden mysteries and clarify historic distortions.)
If we take the medieval era alone, and only within the contemporary Russian territory, in 5-10th centuries (and well before that) there were cities of the Golden Ring (Suzdal, Vladimir, etc.) located around Moscow, as well as Veliky Novgorod (Great Novgorod), that were at least just as important as Kiev – possibly more. The age of Moscow is likely at least several thousand years, not 900 years, as the mainstream history will have you believe.
The actual name of Moscow is Moskva in Russian. The name was distorted, perhaps accidentally. It was called Maskova well before the year 1147, which is erroneously considered the first mention of Moscow in chronicles, and therefore its birthday. Of course it is the first mention since all earlier mentions were destroyed! So, the name Maskova (source: Russian linguist, Prof. Valery Chudinov, Russian Academy of Sciences Member) comes from ‘maska.’ Maska is the Russian word, from which the Western word mask had originated.
The word masquerade comes from Russian maskarad: maska + rad. Rad = ‘rad-ovatsia’ – to experience joy, to have fun, as well as to commune/talk with others. Incidentally, the Ukraine parliament is called ‘Rada,’ or a place where people are supposed to commune and discuss things, preferably with joy ;). Instead they often have fist fights there, completely negating the true meaning of this ancient word. The word ‘rad’ is very, very ancient and it has a very profound meaning. I will talk more about it in a future report related to the discoveries of the Russian scientists.
In the ancient days, maska had a broader meaning and symbolized anything artistically painted. Before that, it symbolized Vedic (ancient Rus pagan) religious paintings. When Russia adopted Orthodox Christianity, it became the first name for icons. However, the word undoubtedly has pre-Christian meaning and very ancient origin.
Incidentally, the word ikona, ‘icon’ in English, is also a very ancient Russian word. What we know as a Russian icon today was called “maska” in those ancient days, and Maskova (Moskva) was the place where these icons were painted. The real age, origins the true global importance of the Rus language and culture (also referred to as Slavic), would be a separate topic. The words such as “ikona,” “Rus” or “Ros,” and “Slav” are hugely important for all of us.
I’ll give you a hint: it is precisely because the earthly importance and global weight of the Rus culture and language is much greater than customarily portrayed, there had always been forces bent on diminishing and maligning Russia and Russian culture. There is so much more to say on the subject, and I promise we’ll talk about it in my future reports.
Holy Trinity, the most famous surviving medieval Russian ikona (maska), by Andrei Rublev
The reason I talk so much about the “Kiev is the Mother of all Russian cities” myth is because it is very important to understand the essence of today’s hatred of certain members of the Ukrainian society towards everything Russian. It is this false idea that is at the core of their staunch belief that Russians are inferior, therefore, they – the real heirs of the ancient Kievan Rus, the real ‘Title Slavic culture’ – should be the richest, most prosperous and get all the influence and credit in world affairs. This kind of sick mentality can also be easily recognized from the hysterical speeches by Hitler and Goebbels; it is born of a severe inferiority complex. This kind of horribly low vibration is what those forces who want to control and destroy Ukraine, and then through Ukraine get to Russia, gladly latch on to.
But this myth would have never endured if Russians themselves didn’t parrot it, partly because of own ignorance and partly because of the Russian psyche’s unique quality of generosity – why not spread the wealth and make Ukrainians feel better about themselves. As we see, best intentions do lead to hell.
So why did the myth that Kiev is ‘the Mother of all Russian cities’ appear, and how did it gain traction? My theory is that the Russian Orthodox church played a role here, as Kiev is the seat of the very important orthodox Kiev-Pechorskaya Lavra monastery built about 700-800 years ago. Perhaps the myth of the Kiev as the mother of all Russian cities was necessary to raise the importance of the church. It’s interesting to note that in later years Moscow was referred to as the ‘Mother City,’ in my opinion because this is where the Orthodox headquarters moved around 14-15th century. So, it’s very possible that the title of the ‘Mother City’ was simply given to any city that played a role of the Orthodox Christianity’s headquarters of the Russian realm at any given moment, but later the real meaning was forgotten or deliberately distorted. This is the most logical explanation, however, sadly humans tend to lose the historic chain of events and reasoning. Of course, a large role here played the fact that so many Russian chronicles that could have confirmed this, were destroyed.
The ‘Kiev is the Mother of all Russia’ theory doesn’t hold water however you look at it, and it is obviously politically motivated.
Either way, this is a myth that unfortunately became so pervasive that it infected the psyche of Ukrainians with jealousy and resentment towards Moscow and Russia. How come, say Ukrainians, WE are the most important, WE were the true beginning of the Russian civilization, and meanwhile Moscow gets credit for everything? OUR Ukrainian language was the mother tongue (not true), while Russian had been the derivative; so how dare Russian claims the status of one of the great languages, and Ukrainian doesn’t!
In reality, the modern Ukrainian language is in large part an artificially created language with the kind help of the above-mentioned Polish intellectuals. It is also a mixed language, with lots of words borrowed from Polish, Hungarian, Latin, and other languages, after years as part of different countries and as a deliberate attempt to distance Ukrainian from Russian.
Related complaint from Ukraine: how come Moscow/Russia are doing so well, and we are not?
Add to that twisted historic resentment this, more recent envy: how come Russia has all the resources, such as oil, gas and huge territory, and we only have coal? The fact that Russia always shared all her resources more than generously, the fact that Ukraine always paid a highly discounted price for gas and oil, that Russia subsidised and supported Ukrainian economy… matters not.
This, in short, is the sad story of the anti-Russian hatred in Ukraine and its falsified history.
Of course, there are normal people in Ukraine as well, but they are being intimidated, suppressed and silenced. For example, Ukraine has just had the premature elections into Rada. Due to intimidation, threats and open persecution by the government and ukro-fascist mobs, the only candidates able to run are all shades of fascists and the ultra-right. The centrist Party of the Regions candidates could only run if they changed colors, and even then, they probably would be thrown out because of the new ‘Lustration law,’ which is somewhere between the McCarthyism/the 1950s US Witch Hunts and Hitler’s Final Solution.
Meanwhile, all left parties have been banished from the Rada. Communist party members were beaten in the Rada and their parliament faction was disbanded for trying to draw attention to the plight of the peaceful population in Donbass. The members of the Communist Rada faction are in hiding because many of their houses were burned down and families physically threatened. The Progressive Socialist Party also is practically in hiding – I mentioned the head of this party, Natalia Vitrenko, above. She says that she has been completely shut off from any media and the only means she has left of delivering her message is YouTube. All this because she tells the truth. Video in which angry mob in Kiev dumps a Rada deputy in a dumpster and threatens to set him on fire. Another video in which angry ukro-nazis are demolishing a monument to Lenin, whom they should in fact admire as the Father of their nation (this video is by a German citizen who speaks Russian).
However, what is happening in Ukraine today, just like any violent aggression and suppression, can’t last forever. We are living through a revolutionary period when truth is bound to come out everywhere. Every suppressed truth will be breaking through the layers of lies and illusion throughout this decade. Truth will be blooming and illuminating the world with a vengeance after the many years of obscurity. Don’t be afraid of this light – embrace it!

LRL1: Inaugural Episode of LadaRayLive Is Here! Crimea’s Scythian Gold; MH17; Russian Sanctions – Global Consequences
We are pleased to announce that the inaugural episode of my new show, Lada Ray Live, is finally here!
Watch on YouTube in HD!
LadaRayLive 1. Crimea’s Scythian Gold; MH17; Russian Sanctions – Global Consequences
We discuss several closely related topics that all have common players: Russia, USA, Ukraine, EU and Holland. What happened to the Scythian gold from Kiev that was shipped off by Yatsenyuk to the US? Why is Holland refusing to give the Crimean Scythian gold back to the rightful owners – the Crimean museums? MH17 false flag with pictures. Global shift as a result of the Russian agriculture/food sanctions. In conjunction with the above, my co-host Az and I also touch upon the situation in Caucasus, including the Nagorny Karabakh Donbass-like conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and how Putin managed to defuse it using peaceful diplomacy. We talk about the history and geopolitics of the Crimea, its aspiration to reunite with Russia, anti-NATO movement in Sevastopol and more. We discuss why the largest in Europe, new American embassy was built in… Kiev. We also talk about how Ukrainian gold was shipped off by Yatsenyuk to the US from the Kiev Borispol Airport.
We also talk about the two poster boys of the Western anti-Russian propaganda: Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the Nobel Prize winner and author of Archipelago GULAG, and his experiences in the US, as well as the fate of Boris Pasternak, the Nobel Prize winner and author of Doctor Zhivago.
