UKRAINE ON FIRE: The Real Story. Full Oliver Stone Documentary (Original Eng version) + Lada Ray’s Calibrations
LADA RAY FOREWORD
It has come to my attention that finally Oliver Stone’s famous documentary Ukraine On Fire has been restored and is now again posted on YouTube and elsewhere. As some of you may know, this film was made by the renowned American filmmaker about the Kiev Maidan and 2014 Ukraine coup, which resulted in a brutal fascist regime and near destruction of the country I remember as a flourishing and peaceful land. But then again, that was during the days of the USSR.
The truth is sorely needed to be told for the benefit of the American and generally Western audiences, but there are too many forces who don’t want the people to know this truth. To prevent English-speaking countries from watching it, the film was blocked in English everywhere but has finally been restored and can now be watched.
I know Oliver Stone is a brilliant filmmaker, who is brave enough to tackle important issues no one else in the Western film industry would touch. For example, he also did a major truthful documentary on Putin last year, complete with exclusive interviews (I think I had it posted at one point on FT, but I’m sure you can find it on YouTube).
That said, when Ukraine On Fire: The Real Story came out, I had privately acknowledged it with an approving nod, but didn’t post it on FT. The reason? Very simple: I though I’d already said it all and then some in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
I made a number of major predictions about Ukraine, and most of them already came true. I wrote and spoke on many occasions about Ukraine and all ins and outs of the 2014 coup, Donbass war, and Odessa May 2 events. I spoke more than once on how US, Poland, Lithuania, Canada and EU were behind the entire Ukraine crisis. I also spoke and wrote about Ukraine’s history, Bandera ukro-nazis (my term), who were in existence since Hitler and before, as well as on Crimea and Ukraine-Russia historic affinities and relations. I happen to know all this by heart, having spent my childhood in Odessa and having been born to a Ukrainian mother and Russian father. In reality, the word “Ukrainian” is a misnomer, as I’ve also discussed many a time. My mother’s heritage, who was originally from the Dnepropetrovsk/Zaporozhie area, must be considered a South Russian Cossack, or Rusin, or Malorussian, or as another version, Novorussian. The jury is still out which of these will eventually be adopted as a correct name for the branch of the Russian people, occupying Southern Russian lands, down to the Black Sea. This of course will happen a little later, but it is already clear that the word ‘Ukraine’ and ‘Ukrainian’ will either be relegated to history books, or reduced to a very small territory.
Long story short, I have over a hundred posts, videos and Earth Shift Reports on Ukraine. I won’t list any of them here. I’m simply inviting you to find out for yourselves by hitting category Ukraine under CATEGORIES on the right navigation bar of FuturisTrendcast. You can learn just about everything about Ukraine if you read my Ukraine Earth Shift Reports: ESR2, ESR3, ESR6 and ESR8.
Consequently, very simply put, I thought I’d told so many truths about Ukraine, and did it so often, that my followers and readers by now surely should know just about everything there is to know. So why repeat it by posting this film, undoubtely great, but a bit redundant, from my point of view.
In my mind, my readers and listeners have moved forward from the topics discussed in this film a long time ago. We have moved so far in fact that I posted these recent Ukraine-related posts.
- Ukraine Poroshenko’s Secret Letters to FSB Leaked by Georgian TV
- FuturisTrendcast Turns 4: Three All-Star Testimonials I Never Expected to Get!
But it appears most people are just beginning to awaken to the truth, and perhaps they need said truth to be presented to them in an easy film format…
Enter Ukraine on Fire! Our friend KP has asked me to post Oliver Stone’s film on FuturisTrendcast, and I’m happy to oblige.
Disclosure: I have not watched this film yet. You probably have guessed why: I already know all this and then some. And then there is that pesky thing called ‘only 24 hours in a day.’
I am being asked to give my opinion on the film. Since I didn’t watch it, I can’t react emotionally or analytically to its content.
THE GOOD NEWS! I CAN give you my calibrations of this film; and really, in order to know the truth, this is ALL you need.
Oliver Stone’s Ukraine on Fire film — TRUTH CALIBRATIONS:
QC: 400 – REASON
CHI: 410 – REASON
Both very good and very high — you probably won’t find anything like this elsewhere in the contemporary American filmmaking! Watch away!
Without further ado, watch the full Ukraine On Fire: The Real Story — original English version!
I am posting the complete email sent to me by KP, along with useful links he has included:
FROM KP: Aloha Lada…
I know you are well. I am so very grateful that you reported on what was REALLY occurring in Ukraine when the terrible events were occurring there in 2014-2015. I have just been made aware of an Oliver Stone documentary that apparently had been “blocked” in the West because, well, you know why.
I found the link below to the YouTube version of it. (LR: as you’ve seen, I posted this full film video above!)
And a link about the “unblocking”:
I also immediately downloaded an MP4 version of it, which I uploaded to my storage area in case it were ever removed by YouTube. Here’s that link:
You may already know of this, but I wanted to send to you first. I’m posting it tonight. People need to see this. I’d be interested in your take about it.
I wrote about it in the end of 2017, so you all know that much like other truthtellers and wayshowers, such as Oliver Stone, Julian Assange and RT, I also suffered from a Facebook ban and some very underhanded de-ranking of FuturisTrendcast content on Google search engine, resulting in a diminished viewership. There are some other major attacks I won’t discuss here.
You also know that I am transitioning a part of my most forward-looking and cutting edge content to LADA RAY ON PATREON, where you will be able to read/watch/listen to the newest, most interesting and exclusive material I will be presenting. This will be happening away from censorship and trolls. My new Patreon program also supports my future books and other breakthrough work.
I do need your support and I hope you will follow LADA RAY ON PATREON soon! And the sooner more people join me, the sooner I’ll be able to share more with you all!
Ah, and by the way, if you want to continue staying ahead of the curve on Ukraine, Russia, US, geopolitics, the Great Earth Shift, Calibrations, Multidimensional Universe, plus forbidden history, this is your best chance ever!
I have much to share with you, but I am simply not interested in sharing it into thin air and spinning my wheels for nothing. Up to you all!
As we celebrate the 4-year anniversary of FuturisTrendcast, I have been reminded of something…
You know I never solicit reviews or testimonials, but you also know how happy and grateful I am when I get those from the heart emails and comments, which make my day.
It’s especially awesome to get those completely unexpected words, the ones which aren’t perhaps even intended as a compliment or a thank you — something that may come completely naturally, simply because it’s the heartfelt truth.
I just wanted to post these three off-the-calf comments / testimonials, which I thought were especially telling because they felt so refreshingly unrehearsed.
This recent email from late 2017, by a long-time supporter, reminded me of something I myself forgot.
FROM JD TO LADA RAY~ FYI: A Published Article Today shows how Lucky we have been to find you…way back in Feb/March, 2014
Remember the Kiev Maidan snipers revelations from 2017? It finally got into the open, although those in the know talked about it from the start. JD sent me this Nov. 2017 quote from Executive Intelligence Review and reminded me that I’d talked about it back in February-March, 2014, complete with evidence (read the piece below; it’s very good for additional evidence and details).
| ‘Maidan Snipers Speak’ on Who Ran Neo-Nazi Coup in Ukraine
Nov. 22, 2017 (EIRNS)—The report released last week by the Italian TV program Occhi della guerra [“Eyes on War”], on “Ukraine, The Hidden Truth: Maidan Snipers Speak,” is considered a “bombshell.”
The show, centered on interviews with three snipers involved in that Maidan massacre, proves, as EIR charged from the beginning, that the sniper fire was not ordered by Yanukovych or his government, but by the neo-Nazi forces brought to power by the Obama administration with NATO backing.
The snipers were all Georgians, working under the direction of the former President of Georgia, Mikhael Saakashvili, who, after being brought to power in 2004 by George Soros, set out to launch a war with Russia on behalf of NATO, UK and the Bush administration. Saakashvili was so central to the Ukraine coup that he was appointed Governor of Oddessa by Victoria Nuland’s “Yats” government brought to power by the Maidan uprising.
The snipers recount that they were recruited by Saakashvili’s chief military advisor, Mamuka Mamulashvili, who later formed a “Georgian Legion” to fight in Donbass. Working for Mamulashvili was an American, a former 101st Airborne officer and sniper, Brian Boyenger, who gave the snipers their orders. He, too, also then joined the Georgian Legion in the Donbass.
Sergei Pashinsky, the Maidan uprising leader who later headed the Kiev Supreme Rada, distributed the weapons to the recruited snipers, along with Volodymir Parasyuk, another Maidan leader. The snipers in the Conservatory building were given orders on Feb. 20th to start firing. “‘Only Pashinsky said anything…. He was the one giving orders’,” one recounted. The leaders of the Maidan revolt ordered us “‘shoot to create chaos and confusion.’ We shouldn’t stop. It did not matter if we fired at a tree, a barricade, or someone throwing a Molotov cocktail. The important thing was to sow chaos,” one sniper recalls.
The snipers soon fled Kiev, knowing that demonstrators would kill them if they realized.
Then JD linked up to my own FUTURISTRENDCAST article from the very beginnings of this blog, published on March 5, 2014
by Lada Ray | March 5, 2014
This comprehensive report is well-worth a complete re-read. But here are several paragraphs applicable to a number of things that would be exposed much later all over the world. However, those who were paying attention heard them first in February-March 2014 on FuturisTrendcast. The last paragraph of the quote specifically addresses the Maidan sniper issue:
MARCH 5, 2014 ARTICLE EXCERPT:
“Of course, the above two comments should come as no surprise after the world has learned about how Victoria #Nuland, Assistant US Secretary of State and #Kerry’s second, was caught on tape commanding which of the Ukraine “opposition leaders” will be occupying which position in Ukraine’s government. In the same tape, Nuland famously announced: “f*** EU.” Listen to the scandalous leaked tape below. Discussed, like pieces on the chess board, are #Klitchko, #Yatseniuk, western #UkrianeNazi #Tiagnibok, #Yanukovich, and #UNSecretaryGeneral #BanKimoon:
I want to quote what a friend who lives in Kiev, Ukraine, has emailed me yesterday. I have quoted this same person in What is Really Happening in Ukraine? Part 4: Nazi Coup Succeeds. As I said before, I won’t mention the name for safety reasons. I will just say that she has previously lived in Europe and the Middle East, that she is a highly spiritual, extremely forgiving and removed from politics person, whose only crime is that she speaks Russian.
I quote: “Hello Lada!
How have you been? I been really enjoying all your posts about Ukrainian situation… I was always trying to stay away from politics and not get emotionally involved with it, because to me it’s the energy drain. However, Ukrainian events did get me deep this time.
I now had to leave Kiev for a while for reasons of personal safety and also because many projects and plans had to be cancelled in this current situation. I was going to write a post or two to share my reflections on these latest events in the country, but I think I won’t, because much of it have been already mentioned, and besides, you brilliant posts really said it all! You really gave a great detailed and fact-based coverage to the world
To tell you the truth, people in southern and eastern regions of Ukraine are now simply afraid for their safety. There is no one in the country now to represent and protect the rights of Russian-speaking population. People in Kiev are afraid to speak Russian loudly in the streets anymore… I never thought our country in 21 century would sink into some medieval mass psychosis… I’m hoping for some divine intervention…”
Also, these breaking news just in:
NEW EU LIE SCANDAL! New leaked conversation between EU Foreign Minister Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister Urmas Paet , which reveals that the EU KNEW since at least the beginning of March that snipers killing people in Kiev, which they are still trying to pin on #Yanukovich, were hired by opposition! Meanwhile, several alternative sources, myself included, had said right away that these snipers had been spotted over and over again during “color revolutions” all over the world. These mysterious and deadly snipers are always being hired to shoot people from both sides of the conflict in order to ignite further anger and violence, as well as to start the blame game. See more in Part 1.
One of the big friends of FuturisTrendcast, whom you all know as Paleohippy, recently commented under one of my FT posts — a comment I also really liked:
‘It’s unfair to get the news two years before they happen.’
OR 4 YEARS…
To tell you the truth, I never expected to get anything like this from Brazil. After I wrote that famous report on Brazil in March 2016 and it was translated and reposted by a number of Brazilian publications, I got an avalanche of indignant comments from anti-Dilma-government Brazilians, saying that color revolution was good, that Dilma Rousseff government corruption was rampant, that the new pro-US, pro-big-business government would definitely be much better, and that I had no idea what I was talking about. Looked like in Brazil they never heard of Ukraine. (BTW, present pro-US Brazil president Temer, his party and government are also under investigation for corruption, and impeachment may be looming, but so far it’s being successfully avoided).
After all those previous unenlightened comments from Brazil (possibly just trolls), I was pretty surprised to get this comment. I found its perfect honesty refreshing, and I was especially flattered by one sentence (see the highlight).
The piece in question about Brazil is this major report I wrote on March 15, 2016: Brazil Color Revolution: Corruption, Dilma, Lula, Zika, Rio Olympics and BRICS. Lada Ray Report and Predictions. Very much worth the read — don’t miss!
Dear friend from Brazil, a new post, explaining how and where to begin learning beyond 3D is coming tomorrow. But today, you can start by clicking on links below. Best of luck!

Russophobic Hysteria Sweeps US/EU. Putin to ABC, Associated Press and Poland: Are you people normal? Grow up!
I’ve already posted the entire Putin’s Annual Q&A, along with several important snippets: Putin’s International and All-Russia Annual Press Conference (ENG).
But I also wanted to repost these three already famous Putin’s answers to dumb and provocative questions from the representatives of US, UK and Poland. They address the anti-Russian propaganda and hysteria we hear every day, complete with lies and low-grade hoaxes, which have, regrettably, become a common part of the Western political landscape. The biggest problem is that the sheeple everywhere are falling for this conditioning all too easily. I’ve been hearing many stories of ‘bad Russians’ from such sheeple in the US.
Putin destroys these arguments in his usual witty, sharp and intelligent manner. Note that by the time he answers the drivel from a Polish ‘journalist’ Putin has been answering questions live for 3 hours — look at his priceless expression in the end! (As someone who’s done long live interviews and Q&As, I know very well what it means). The entire Q&A lasted close to 4 hrs.
What went on during Putin’s Q&A: Although several questions were pre-planned so Putin could begin outlining his vision for the next 6 years as Russian President, the vast majority of questions were clearly spontaneous, and some were obviously tricky and designed to make him trip, which always backfired. Masterfully, Putin never offends anyone, yet easily disarms them through clever, informed, truthful and heartfelt responses. To say that such open and sincere format is impossible in the West or elsewhere in the world, is to say nothing. Russia is the only place on earth where President has an open and spontaneous dialogue with the people and with international community.
I have to say that most questions during this session were from Russian regional and local press, and some were very legitimate. But those asked by Western ‘journalists’ and their pro-Western Russian counterparts were from bad to worse, thus illustrating how far removed from reality and clueless the West in general is.
Who needs conspiracy theories when one has Western governments! As one example of the escalating Russophobic hysteria, UK’s top general Sr. Peach has announced two days ago that Russian ships were spotted close to underwater Atlantic cables between EU, UK and US. Therefore, proclaimed said general, Russia is preparing to disrupt Internet and sabotage economy and the whole way of life not only for England, but for the entire Western World! (Cross wires: UK military chief warns that Russia could cut off vital internet cables). The big irony here is that Sr. Peach is talking about the same cables NSA and Britain’s spy agency GCHQ tapped to spy on various leaders and countries, of which we learned from the 2013 Snowden leaks (GCHQ’s operation Tempora).
Generally, you all know about the renewed Russophobic hysteria sweeping US, UK, Germany and the West in general, since much of it has been in the news. This new wave of the old hysteria is without any question due to upcoming Russian Presidential Elections on March 18, 2018.
They are literally scared to death that Putin will continue being Russian President for 6 more years. Two of the examples of such hysteria are illustrated in the piece posted below, translated and compiled by Inessa S.
But it is not widely known what kind of poisonous, and not any less damaging to the world at large lies are spewed out by Poland an its government. I wrote about the Trojan Horse and the poisonous pill of Poland on more than one occasion. You can see my recent extensive and detailed article here Poland orders DESTRUCTION of 500+ Russian WWII memorials. More on Poland here WHOLE TRUTH on Zapad-2017 Russia-Belarus Army Exercise + China-Russia Navy Drills near Korea.
Just to illustrate the idiocy and Russophobic hysteria shaking Poland, this is a new hoax the Polish government(!) is spreading. The sensationalist drivel you’ll hear in the video below is about Polish government’s new ‘brilliant’ conspiracy theory. Supposedly Russians secretly installed bombs on the Polish government plane that killed then president Kachinski and over 90 top members of the Polish army and government over Smolensk about 10 years ago. These bombs, says Poland, were planted by Russians, despite the fact that the government plane in question flew to Russian Smolensk from a heavily guarded Polish airport in Warsaw. It has been proven by experts that no explosions took place on board, but if Poles think they did, they need to look for culprits in Warsaw and not in Russia, logically points out Putin. (See the real story of drunk Polish president and top general ordering pilots to land, despite warnings of adverse conditions from the Russian Tower: Poland orders DESTRUCTION of 500+ Russian WWII memorials.)

IMPORTANT EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17 ADDITIONS! Lada Ray Calibrates Santa Fe, Hawaii, Princeton, Ann Arbor, Berkeley, NY, NJ!
Important new addition to
Additional Geo Calibrations for the USA added!
FT’s dear friend Paleohippy pointed out that while I have mentioned a very high calibration of Santa Fe, NM in the ESR17 Interpretations Section, I have not included it in the GC Worldwide Table. While doing the Main Table I followed a ‘modified double blind scientific approach.’ I simply calibrated on the spot those geo locations within each country or continent that surfaced in my mind at that moment. In other words, I trusted my inner guidance. There was no pre-meditation or pre-knowledge, which ensures a more accurate calibration result.
It appears that Santa Fe popped into my mind as a telling example of Acceptance while writing the Interpretations, but it wasn’t on my mind during the Main Table double blind test.
I know it’s an oversight on my part as truly, Santa Fe is exceptional. Therefore, I added its GC value to the USA section of the ESR17. Santa Fe’s GC for 2017 turned out to be 310 (willingness/cooperation). Not as high as Acceptance, but still off the charts, in comparison to the rest of the world’s Geo Locations calibrated.
I also realized it wasn’t fair not to include Hawaii: another of few US geo locations with GC above 200! Since I was at it, I also decided to add more values to the USA section. It makes sense: USA is a big country and many of my followers live here. After latest additions, USA has 20 calibrations total. In addition to major US cities and some states, those who have purchased EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17 will now see calibrations for NY, NJ, MI, OH states, as well as those for Santa Fe, Hawaii, and some major college towns, such as Princeton, Ithaca, Berkeley and Ann Arbor. Check’em all out in North America – USA section!
I don’t know about you, but these calibrations in many cases surprised me, sometimes pleasantly, and sometimes not.
Also in North America section! Canada was an overall upside surprise of this report! There were other upside surprises, such as the number of large cities in Russia with GC between 200 and 280! I think it will be educational to talk about upside and downside surprises, as well as anomalies of EARTH SHIFT REPORT 17, and why they have occurred. I’ll post my analysis and impressions on FuturisTrendcast after more people read the report!
As pointed out in ESR17, while worldwide calibrations are very telling, they may not be reflective of your particular situation. For example, a city or country may calibrate pretty low, yet you may reside in one part of that geo location that calibrates high. Or the place may be bad for others, but for some reason just fine for your particular needs at this time.
Case in point: one of FT followers (won’t say who to protect his privacy) who lives in the US, while his eyes are fully open to what’s happening around, won’t consider moving out of the country. After calibrating the area he lives in, it is easy to see why. The particular area where he resides calibrates very high by any measure, and especially in comparison to the rest of the country and world in general.
Therefore, to tailor GC and other calibrations to your particular needs, I’ve decided to introduce a new service: Personal Quality of Life Geo Calibration Reading.
You’ll be able to order this reading soon under CONSULTATIONS on LadaRay.com.

As the Year 2014 draws to a close, I want to wish a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015 to all my followers and readers!
Taking stock and making peace with the Year 2014
In January 2014 I wrote Feng Shui Predictions for the Year of the Wood Horse 2014. I said:
“A positive this year is that we have the so-called LAPCHUN, or the proverbial “spring.” Therefore, new shoots, new beginnings will take root.”
“2014 World Events Prediction: Due to the volatility of the Wood Horse combo, events in the world will tend to spiral out of control. Tempers, ignited by the fire multiplied by wood (wood burns = intensifies fire), will flare much too easily; fights may be gloves off and very ugly.”
Read more in PREDICTIONS. Full Chinese New Year of the Horse Predictions by Feng Shui Master Lada Ray.
This year was as volatile as I predicted. The violent February coup in Kiev, civil war and brutal nazi takeover of Ukraine; ISIS in the Middle East; killing of the blacks by police in the US; increasing society polarization and various global protests/violent clashes; gloves-off fighting in cyberspace and real life between opposing points of view; Malaysian airliner catastrophes; oil and gas wars; sanctions wars between Russia and the West; unprecedented attacks on the Russian ruble and Russian economy (Special report on this coming in the beginning of January); strange failures of American and Russian space rockets; significant drop in gold and silver price. All these are manifestations of the highly volatile energy of the Year of the Wood Horse. These events are also typical of this entire decade.
At the same time I said that the mystical Lapchun, which I can best describe as ‘the presence of spring and growth chi,’ would allow for the new shoots to take off. And this is exactly what happened: I have written much this year about the re-branding and decisive pivot of Russia to the East; groundbreaking Russia-China gas deals; creation of the Eurasian Union and pre-announcement of the new Eurasian currency Altyn; new mega-deal between Russia and Turkey (gas pipeline and building of the entire new energy sector for Turkey); new massive deals Russia has signed with India, Latin American countries, and more.
Russia started decoupling from the dollar, and the new revolutionary financial system is showing first shoots. This is happening in birth pains, as the resistance of the old system is brutal. But it’s happening nevertheless. The process cannot be stopped and as the presence of Lapchun indicates, the new shoots will be successful (report on the humble beginnings of the new revolutionary monetary system is coming in January).
The Year 2014 has been undoubtedly one of the most important and breakthrough years in recent history.
For me, 2014 was full of shocks, discoveries (both inner and outer), hard work, creation and important revelations.
I was very pleased to see how well the Russian team did at the Sochi Olympics and how beautifully the games were organized. I was shocked to see how far Ukraine has gone in the direction of violence, destruction and madness. As many of my readers know, I was born in Moscow to a Russian father and Ukrainian mother, and grew up in Odessa, presently Ukraine.
My nature has always been extremely non-confrontational. Before 2014 I was very hesitant to share all the world predictions I had in my head and all the geopolitical knowledge I had accumulated over the years of study and observation. I didn’t share my knowledge for fear of offending someone.
All my life I was an overachiever in my studies, career and other areas of life. I jetsetted the world, trailblazed different professions, quickly becoming successful in each. When I first arrived to the US 20 years ago, I became a celebrity in the Russian emigrant circles after becoming one of the first ‘straight off the boat’ Russians to land a lucrative career on Wall Street. Later, having left Wall Street, I became one of the first certified and classically trained in the East Feng Shui Masters residing in the USA. Being an overachiever in all that, I was utter under-achiever in something that I truly held dear to my heart, such as, coming out of the closet and speaking the truth for the whole world to hear; developing and widely sharing my Earth Shift System; creating my own brand of predictory mystical futurism.
Instead of saying what I deemed important straight out, I first decided to camouflage my ideas as fiction. For millenia thinkers did just that: they wrote something revolutionary disguising their dire or important predictions and ideas as fiction. So I wrote my three novels: The Earth Shifter, Gold Train and Stepford USA, and two short novelettes: Catharsis and Green Desert. See more in BOOKS. Four of my books had made Amazon/kindle bestseller list and/or top-rated list. I expect to release more fiction in the future.
About 3 years ago I started Lada Ray Blog. The blog was created to talk about Russia and the world, share my love for world cultures, beauty, nature, animals, photography, as well as my books. Lada Ray Blog performed beyond expectations. As of today, it has over 16,000 followers and nearly 190,000 visitors.
However, I realised that unfortunately today people didn’t read fiction to educate themselves like they did in centuries past. Today’s fiction had become yet another tool for mindless entertainment, of worse, zombifying of the population. I realized that whatever I wanted to say, I needed to say straight.
In my videos about Calibrations of Human Consciousness I talk about Courage as the first life-affirming calibration. We can be destined for great things, we can have great talents, but until we conquer our fears, until we muster courage, we won’t be able to make a breakthrough to the necessary level of energetic vibration, which will make our accomplishment possible. I needed to find that courage and to let go of my fear. (More about Calibrations here, here and here. )
In 2013 I started FuturisTrendcast Blog with the intention of doing just that – sharing my wisdom, knowledge and predictions, opening people’s eyes, warning of dangers and helping them see the future. However, my non-confrontational nature didn’t allow me to go all out at first, and the blog sat basically idle for several months. By February 2014, the blog had 2,000 visitors and 10 subscribers, until… Ukraine happened and I understood, like Tolstoy once said, that I ‘cannot keep silent’ any more. At that point, fear became unimportant as I understood that something else, namely ‘the truth,’ was much more important than fear.
I watched with incredulity the craze happening on Kiev maidan, provoked deliberately to coincide with the time when Russia was preparing to host the Sochi Olympics, and it was clear to me that the West made sure Russia couldn’t interfere in Ukraine on any level for fear of the Olympics boycott. The ukro-nazi coup was timed and pushed through during Sochi Olympics for the same reason. Meanwhile, politicians from US, UK, Poland, Brussels and other EU countries flocked to Kiev maidan, where they called for violent overturn of Yanukovich and promoted hatred against Russia. People who disagreed in Kiev and western Ukraine were beaten, driven out of the country and killed. Russian language was initially banned and people speaking it prosecuted and intimidated in the country where the majority used to speak it every day. Openly fascist parties started dictating Ukraine’s policies and direct CIA assets usurped power in Kiev. In two or three short months Ukraine turned from a relatively normal place into a cesspool of the darkest and most violent kind. At the same time, the vilification of Russia and character assassination of the Russian leader reached the point of no return. Seeing all this I did what I do best: started writing to tell the truth and open people’s eyes.
FuturisTrendcast visitation and subscription exploded. Turned out, people all over the world craved knowledge and truth. Less than a year later, FuturisTrendcast boasts nearly 250,000 visitors and thousands of subscribers.
I learned a lot in the past year.
I learned that during the time of millennial revolution old ideas one grows up with and comforting childhood memories don’t work. The world is changing fast. I remembered Ukraine, and Odessa where I grew up, as a quiet, sunny, friendly place. With all my predictive powers, I never imagined ukro-nazi takeover, violent civil war, burning people alive on square through which I strolled growing up, midnight nazi marches through Odessa’s beautiful Pushkinskaya Street, bombings of peaceful population in Donbass, and shamelessly open foreign takeover of the country.
But in the midst of extreme violence and injustice, people start waking up and shoots of the new start peeking through mud and sleet. Oftentimes it’s something most people don’t expect and don’t see until after the fact. But those who have a keen, clear eye and sharp mind (and I think my readers are in this category) – those of us can glean quite a lot.
Ours isn’t an easy world, nor comforting time, but it can be very exciting and rewarding if you have the right perspective and vision.
Dear readers and followers, I am here to help you gain the right perspective and to guide your vision!
The above is a good lesson for a lot of my readers in the West. Don’t hang on to the old! The revolution is coming to your town, whether you want it or not, as the world around us changes and evolves. It’s much better to ride the wave of the new than to be shell-shocked holding on to the old.
We are living through the time of major change. We all chose to incarnate in this time of great EARTH SHIFT for a reason. We all chose our destiny. Take a deep breath and enjoy the ride!
In the year 2014 I reached deeper inside than I ever had, and I discovered that I had more creative potential, wisdom and revelations ready to come out than I ever realized. I knew that it was too late to hide out in my cozy and secure little world. I had my destiny to live!
Dear readers, 2014 was just the beginning – stay tuned for much more to come!

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN’S TRADITIONAL NEW YEAR 2015 ADDRESS
NEW Intel and Predictions: Peace and War Crimes in Ukraine? Russian Gas or Cold Winter? Mrs. USA in Crimea?
Russian gas and peace: peace in Ukraine suddenly on the agenda as winter draws near
I am starting off with something unheard of before! Last night in Gorlovka, DNR, Novorossia (E. Ukraine) there was a joint PEACEFUL meeting of Ukraine army and Novorossia military commanders with the representatives of Russia and OSCE. Russia was represented by General Alexander Lentsov, Assistant Commander of Infantry of the Russian Federation. The military on all sides were discussing why ceasefire isn’t working – the civilian quarters are still being bombed. The participants were trying to solidify the ceasefire agreements. This info in Russian: starts at 2:20 to 4:40. Although no agreements were reached and Ukraine reps refused to talk to the media, the major breakthrough is that the military on both sides is at least willing to talk to each other, instead of shooting. Although this word wasn’t spoken, but in fact the military were discussing the new border between Novorossia and Ukraine, de-facto recognizing the new state.
De-facto Kiev already recognized our independence, says DNR head Zakharchenko. Video – Rus.
To say that such a meeting constitutes a massive breakthrough is to say nothing. I said in LRL4: Predictions Coming True; Mind Control in Ukraine that Ukraine and Novorossia will eventually have to agree on peace – they will have no choice. Incidentally, the closer we get to the winter, the more desperate the Ukraine/Kiev junta side will become to agree on something; the more malleable their position will become. Poroshenko may be a US stooge, but he is also an oligarch, hence survivor par excellence. He knows that if he doesn’t do everything he can so that his country can survive this winter, by next spring he will have another maidan on his hands, and he will have Yulia Tymoshenko breathing down his neck – and Yulia’s breathing is deadly. She is bound to topple Poroshenko on a new wave of public discontent. Poroshenko knows all about it, after all he was one of the original financiers and instigators of the 2004 Orange revolution, seen next to Yushchenko and Tymoshenko delivering victory speeches.
Of course the closer we get to winter, the more EU itself is sounding alarm bells. Both EU and Ukraine were audacious during warm months, when the need in Russian gas was low and reserves in both Ukraine and EU high. But come winter, the spread changes dramatically.
Prediction: the closer we get to winter, the more agreeable and malleable both EU and the Ukraine junta will become. I won’t be surprised if EU sanctions against Russia will be quietly forgotten and demurely set aside. “We were just joking,” they’ll say. “Can happen between the best of friends. Can you please allow our goods back into the Russian market? And can you please continue supplying us with Russian gas?” This process has already started.
I have this advise for Russia’s leadership: Don’t trust these announcements much. These are not the people to trust, they are the same neocons and neoliberals who were yelling that Russia was aggressor just several short months ago. Although, sure – dialogue is always a great idea. Talking and finding points of mutual agreement is what Russian diplomacy always excelled at. Of course the difficulty always was to find someone lucid enough on the other side to talk to. It seems only the FEAR of their own hardship can get some sense into the EU politicians. Obviously, the fact that their efforts to create the area of instability in Ukraine due to their ulterior motives, caused immense suffering and a brutal civil war, concerns them not. Absolutely the same process is happening in Ukraine, except there are even fewer people with whom it’s possible to reason in Kiev.
It will take time for the EU to truly change leadership, but it’ll happen. It will be a tedious and unpleasant process. The population of Europe has the power to change the EU leadership, therefore changing the continent’s course, but many are still duped by the MSM. Present day EU has been hijacked by the Transatlantic-centric neocons, and on the economic side, by US/UK-centric banksters. However, the awakening has started.
And of course, here it is! What do you know! During Berlin meeting between Russia, very worried EU, and clueless Ukraine, Ukraine promised to pay for a large portion of its $5bln+ gas debt to Russia. What’s new is that EU now gives personal guarantees that the Ukraine deadbeat will fulfil its promise. How sweet! As soon as the heating season starts looming, how much more agreeable the EU and Ukraine get! What an amazing metamorphosis from the summer bellicose and hateful rhetoric! Listen to this info in Russian, including charts: starts at 7:20.
After all this, is there any way to respect or treat seriously such people? Think not.
Gas price and Ukraine debt to Gasprom: Ukraine will get Russian gas if they pay $3.1 bln out of $5.3 bln they owe Gasprom. In the future gas supply will be pre-paid only; the price is $385, which is a compromise. This is a $100 discount to the EU gas price. In reality, many EU countries pay less, which depends on volume and how long-term their agreement with Gasprom is. But since Ukraine never made long-term agreements with Russia, and even the ones they had made, keep being broken, they are not eligible for discounts.
If Ukraine fulfills these requirements, it will receive 5bln cubic meters of gas, which should be enough for the winter… if it’s warm. The likelihood is that Ukraine may need much more gas, as they’ve been lying about their true gas reserves. In that case, they will likely start siphoning EU gas as it happened so many times before.
Let’s remember that just before being overturned by the maidan coup in February 2014, Yanukovich signed the deal with Russia according to which the nearly bankrupt Ukraine would have been getting the much-needed gas at $220. Belarus, the member of the Customs Union, gets Russian gas practically for free, at $180, making Belorussian economy very competitive compared to the EU. This in part accounts for the so-called “Belorussian miracle” – stability, great infrastructure, robust economy, etc. I might do a piece about that at some point. So, the inevitable conclusion is that it’s so much more profitable to be friends with Russia.
Let’s compare this to Ukraine and the 2014 violent Kiev coup under anti-Russian slogans. What did they achieve? They lost Crimea and at least Donbass. Donbass in 2013 was responsible for 30% of the Ukraine GDP. Grivna is drastically down despite Kiev cooking the books and world banksters being complicit in propping up the dying grivna. Inflation is skyrocketing. Ukraine is about to freeze in the winter.
Ukraine is selling strategic grain reserves
My intel also says this: due to the economic problems and the fact that coffers are empty, Ukraine is now exporting its strategic grain reserves. These reserves are usually kept intact because they are normally needed in the winter. The grain trains keep moving towards Mariupol. Mariupol is the Azov Sea port, one of the few suitable ports Ukraine has left (apart from Odessa and Ilichevsk – both in Odessa oblast + military port in Nikolaev). In Mariupol the grain gets loaded into ships and leaves the country. Another version is that the Kiev junta is trying to move the grain normally stored in eastern Ukraine to the western side of the country, anticipating that all of eastern Ukraine may be lost to them eventually and thus preparing to leave people without food in retaliation.
Either way, the result may be not only winter cold, but also hunger. This info is from Oleg Tsarev – former Rada deputy and presidential candidate, who is now the Speaker of the Novorossia parliament.
Mariupol is a bone of contention between Novorossia and Kiev. It is a city of 400,000 located in the Donetsk oblast. It has been occupied by the Kiev army since May. DNR says it belongs to Novorossia since it’s part of the Donetsk oblast. Kiev disagrees. Mariupol is a very important a valuable port for Novorossia, which would give them access to the Black Sea. I talk about it in LRL4: Predictions Coming True; Mind Control in Ukraine. In this episode, you’ll also find the detailed map of Ukraine, including Mariupol.
And another interesting thing to point out: where did all the talk about the US shale gas that would replace Russian gas go? Obviously, the EU did some number crunching and came to the inevitable conclusion that it wouldn’t work. Another interesting thing to note: the absolute silence of the US on the Ukraine and EU front, including the gas issue. Remember how vocal was the US until August that they would replace Russian gas with theirs?
I said in my prior article that US saw they were losing in Ukraine and they made a deal with Russia to quietly disengage from Ukraine in exchange for minor adjustments elsewhere from Russia’s side (I wouldn’t trust the US long-term, but for the time being – temporarily – it’s fine). Read more in My Latest Intel: Did US Lose in Ukraine? Is Putin the Best Russian Leader? Do People Prefer Conspiracies to Real Truth? All the above confirms my earlier intel.
EU was a part of the deal and now we are seeing that the EU starts acting differently in Ukraine, acting as one of the brokers for peace. But also notice how they are acting elsewhere: both UK and France are starting to bomb ISIS positions in the Middle East. All this is connected.
Rest assured that the real negotiations are still going on between Russia and US only, with EU playing the second fiddle and the point man, and Ukraine being used as loose change and cannon fodder (when will they finally learn?). I won’t say more at this point. Please read between the lines.
Atrocities by Kiev junta and Future International Tribunal
I have been predicting in my earlier articles that there will be an international tribunal that will convict Ukraine war criminals, just like the Nuremberg tribunal convicted the German Nazis. The people and governments of Russia, DNR and LNR, as well as elsewhere in Ukraine, are documenting the atrocities in the so-called White Book. Many names of those guilty have been identified. Eventually, all these materials will serve as proof for prosecution.
This is so horrible that I have a lot of trouble talking about it! The new gruesome discoveries of mass graves of tortured and killed civilians, with hands tied behind their backs and mutilated faces, are being discovered in E. Ukraine as the Kiev junta army retreats. This is so chilling and horrific that I decided not to post any links, except one. You can find much more material about these awful discoveries by Googling it or by searching on YouTube. Also go to RT.com – see my Resources page above for link.
These are some of the horrifying stories from RT:
A freed from junta village destroyed by the Kiev nazis: an old woman says that she survived by miracle when bomb hit her house. Mostly only old people are left, who have no place to go – all others took refuge in Russia. The woman says that her neighbor didn’t take the main road home once; she wanted to take a shortcut through the fields – and the Kiev national guard just shot her point-blank. When they were leaving, says the old lady, their tongues became loose and one confessed: “You should be thankful,” he said, “that we left you alive. We had orders to level your village completely and to kill everyone.”
Old people, who once survived WWII, are saying that German nazis didn’t behave as badly as these, who call themselves Ukrainians and who insist they want to live with their victims in the same state. This explains why Hitler himself was afraid of the ukro-nazis from the western Ukraine SS division Galichina and similar SS units.
Locals from the small towns that just got freed from the contemporary ukro-nazis testify that the occupiers would ride into town, enter a building and start crashing windows and everything in sight. Before leaving, they burned down all the books in the library and went in rooms, on walls and everywhere they could. For them, toilets apparently are superfluous.
This story of a man who came back alive, but branded, is going viral. It can probably be easily found on the net. The man was tortured with hot irons. They branded the huge word “separatist” across his entire chest. On his rear they branded him with a huge – I mean huge – swastika.
The Donbass self-defence had to stop the agreed upon exchange of prisoners. While self-defence was giving back real soldiers, the Kiev junta side was sabotaging the exchange: instead of fighters or activists it was sending simple civilians. Many of these civilians were kidnapped from their respective towns in other parts of the country when they were going about their business. They were tortured, made confess of something and then exchanged for the real nazi killers and military. Realizing that they were unwittingly enabling these kidnappings, the Novorossia government stopped the prisoner exchange till further notice.
Here is a link provided by reader Nemo (Spasibo!):
Nemo1024Sep 28, 12:20 pm: Alas, yet another mass grave was discovered on the territory that was for two weeks occupied by the ignominious battalion Ajdar of the Ukrainian National Guard: http://itar-tass.com/mezhdunarodnaya-panorama/1472678
I want to remind everyone that this is the regime that has been brought to power, wined and dined, fully supported, enabled and protected from justice by the US and EU! This is a fine illustration of what kind of democracy the Western governments spread all over the world!
Why Kiev junta doesn’t trust its own army and intelligence (SBU)
How can they! Let’s recall that since February-March 2014 (go to my articles under Ukraine category for that period) I said that at least part of Ukraine army is more likely to have allegiance to Russia than to the Kiev junta. That was said well before the gruesome war was initiated in E. Ukraine by the Kiev junta. My words proved true quickly when Crimea became Russian again and most of the Crimea’s contingent of the Ukraine navy and military switched to Russian side.
During the last few months, officers and soldiers in the Ukraine army, police and intelligence have been resigning in droves, deserting or defecting. The number of desertions constitutes by different accounts 1/4, or more, of the entire army.
Many are hiding from draft, or refuse to ship to E. Ukraine. Various reports have been surfacing of Ukraine national guard, consisting of known nazis and felons let out of jail, shooting those who refused to fight or who was caught trying to surrender to self-defence. They sometimes would shoot entire units and then bury them by the road, spraying acid on top so bodies couldn’t be identified.
The disaster in Ukraine army is such that many relatives have no idea if their loved ones are alive or dead. Thousands are MIA, most of these in fact victims of their own army. When all this is over, there will be lots of shocked and grieving people in Ukraine, and lots of explaining to do. The losses in Ukraine army, in big part by the hand of their own, will prove staggering. Once peace comes, this unpleasant disclosure will have to be made sooner or later, and this is one of the reasons some in Ukraine want to prolong the war for as long as possible.
That said, Ukraine army is quickly running out of cannon fodder, and that was one of the reasons they needed the present ceasefire. Meanwhile, more and more Ukraine soldiers are going public saying they were betrayed and left to die by their commanders. Recently, 400 conscripts from Western Ukraine took off in their ARCs and rode home. On another occasion, 200 from Vinnitsa in central Ukraine also simply abandoned their positions and went home to the relief of their families. More about that in LRL4: Predictions Coming True; Mind Control in Ukraine.
It has been shown that Ukraine’s army officers who hardly get paid, in order to survive have routinely sold the army hardware, weapons and munitions to Donbass self-defence. This was done for two reasons. First, to make money, and second – to earn future forgiveness when this Kiev junta is finished.
Same goes for intel. Ukraine army officers have been known to pass info about their position and movement, therefore allowing DNR and LNR self-defence to regroup and counter the attack, or take the unit prisoner. Intel by secret sympathisers allowed to surround and destroy some of the most hard-core and vicious national guard ukro-nazi battalions. This is one of the reasons they have been so successful in creating “cauldrons” – surrounding the Kiev troops. Regular Ukraine military hates national guard as much as the Donbass people.
In fact, the military in Ukraine see the writing on the wall. Some in the Ukraine army and SBU (intelligence) are trying to earn future exoneration of their past and present sins by playing double agent role.
New intel: Poroshenko and his cronies in the Kiev junta government have announced the “cleansing” of SBU – read, they don’t trust their own intelligence services due to the fact that some among them may be double agents. This isn’t being advertised, but it’s understood.
Remember the leaked phone conversations between Nuland and US Kiev ambassador where Nuland is heard ‘appointing’ Ukraine’s PM and other officials? This was also the conversation in which she said, “F**k EU.” Another leaked call was that of Tymoshenko where she said that all Russians living in eastern Ukraine must be nuked. Who leaked these conversations in social media? One of the prevailing opinions is that it came from the dissenting SBU officers. The Kiev junta has been on the hunt for these since the beginning. Poroshenko is starting a new round of ‘Gestapo-style final solution cleaning.’ These are trained spies though, and I seriously doubt they can be found out that easily.
Building Bridges: massive construction of the railroad bridge to Crimea and… Mrs. USA Pageant in Sevastopol
Video interview in Russian. Глава РЖД: Работы по строительству железной дороги через Керченский пролив уже ведутся.
Head of Russian Railways: ‘we are already conducting preliminary work to prepare for the construction of the railroad through the Kerch Strait to connect mainland with the Crimea. We were the first ones ready to start. The bridge through the Kerch Strait will be adopted for auto and railroad traffic. The initial railroad isn’t planned to be high-speed, although we will be able to adopt it for high-speed trains. It all depends on investments we receive.’
Due to the blockade by Ukraine, Crimea has a very limited connection with mainland Russia since there is no land border between the two. The only reliable traffic is via the Black Sea ferry and shipping service, but it’s not enough for the huge peninsula with 2 million population. The air traffic to Crimea, which is now effectively an ‘island,’ is being partially blocked by sanctions. If my readers remember I talked about the Russian budget airline that was sanctioned because it dared to fly to Crimea. Crimea is also suffering from the lack of investments as even Russian companies are afraid to do business with Crimea for fear of being cut off from SWIFT and Western loans, or for fear of personal sanctions against their top management. Same goes for Russian banks. Very few open branches in Crimea because of the same fear.
This situation is being resolved little by little and it will take time to normalize it. Of course, Russian companies think in terms of profit, just like any capitalist structure in the world.
However, this is being addressed slowly. One of the reasons for a relatively slow response is the unresolved situation in Ukraine. Ukraine 2-4 years from now will have a different management and direction, as we discussed in some of my prior articles. Russians would prefer to invest in Crimea when they know exactly what needs to be done in conjunction with the changed situation in Ukraine.
But the blockade is being slowly broken and the situation is about to change!
No, it’s not a joke, and you aren’t hallucinating! 😉 Mrs. USA pageant will take place, of all places, in Sevastopol, Crimea, Russia in the spring of 2015. It will be happening jointly with Mrs. Russia pageant. Sevastopol is the so-called ‘city of the Russian glory,’ and the seat of Russia’s Black Sea fleet. So, this may seem bizarre, and already voices are heard that this is a disgrace. However, in view of the blockade we discussed above, it’s a creative way to break through the wall of disinfo and lies.
Can you imagine how much this single pageant, incidentally, conducted together with the Russian pageant (and they are also discussing having other countries participating), will do to change the minds of the Americans about Crimea and Russia? And I can assure you, the Sevastopol backdrop is gorgeous and under-rated. It will do them good to open up to the world.
The organizer of the Mrs. USA contest admits that it was his idea. He himself has roots in Odessa and Belarus, where a lot of Russian jews lived historically. He also was on the organizer committee for the Los Angeles 1984 Olympics. In retaliation for the US and West boycotting the 1980 Moscow Olympics, USSR and other countries boycotted the 1984 US Olympics. He says he learned back then that boycotts and sanctions are a bad idea. I think this is admirable initiative, conducive of dialogue instead of fighting. As the Russian saying goes, poor peace is better than a good war.
However, this is what’s really going on behind the scenes. In fact, Mrs. USA contest in Crimea is none other than a signal that the West, and USA in particular, is going to play ball going forward. This is a confirmation of what I said in prior articles: USA made a deal and is ready to start slowly backing off from Ukraine. Let’s just say Mrs. USA in Crimea is a sort of olive branch. A few months from now, the West will start slowly disengaging from the anti-Russian sanctions, possibly sooner.
I have predicted this whole scenario, including US/EU threats and vilifying of Russia through anti-Russian media campaign, in article: Ukraine Part 6. Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014 published on March 2, 2014. It’s well worth the read!
That said, Russians actually want sanctions to last longer. They don’t want them annulled. Do you know why? Russians know their national character – for them the status quo and stability is such an overriding principle that they need an external push to start the badly needed economic reforms to tear the Russian economy away from the Western influence. This is because the karmic and historic role of Russia as the global balancer and harmonizer is firmly imbedded in national psyche. This is a truly admirable national feature, however, under the circumstances and whenever change is needed it becomes a problem.
The fear is that the moment sanctions are over they may get complacent again, striving to preserve balance. Sanctions, or any negative actions by the West are a much-needed kick in the rear.
My advice and wish for the Russians: when sanctions are over, don’t stop, keep going and keep reforming the economy to fit the advanced future society model. Hint: it’s not capitalism. For more on this see PREDICTIONS above. I will also discuss this in detail in future EARTH SHIFT REPORTS. For an interesting angle on this also see my recent article: Multipolar World and Deja Vu.
One of my readers recently asked me why Russia isn’t more forceful in recognizing Novorossia (DNR and LNR). Don’t they want to save the people of Donbass? I responded that of course they do, but for Russia the dilemma is how to save the entire Ukraine, not just Donbass. How to create the situation in the whole Ukrainian territory when, as the saying goes, “the wolves are fed and the lambs are safe.” This is a very tall order, but as I predicted previously, there will be great changes in Ukraine between 2016 and 2018. See more in Predictions.
This is tied into building the infrastructure for the Crimea, as well as the Prindestrovie and Moldova issues. I’ve talked about what is happening in Moldova in LRL2: LadaRayLive 2. Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU. I will have a very interesting special report on Pridnestrovie (Transnistria) soon.

Jim Rogers is a famed investor and he is VERY enamored over China. He’s been right a lot and I agree with him about quite a few things. On the other hand, he’s certainly been wrong quite a bit as well. One of the best examples of his bloopers was his eternal pessimism about Russia, even as Russian economy advanced 200-400% a year , due to his prejudices. He has since changed his stance on Russia and now believes Russia has one of the biggest investment potentials in the world, as he mentions in this talk. Hmm…
Still, he is pretty good, and worth listening to, about China and Asia. He is also very good with commodities and is worth listening to on that count. I agree with his analysis on Asia and Africa. Disagree in part about South America (again his prejudices talking).
And I must say, I agree with his bearish stance on Ukraine – despite lots of great (perhaps the best in the world) agricultural lands there, the prospect is bleak. I grew up in Ukraine and I can attest how rich and buttery the Ukrainian soils, called “black soils” or “chernozem,” are from personal experience. Unfortunately, as current Ukrainian turmoil confirms again and again, both the economic and political situations in Ukraine are not viable or conducive of development and growth. Pity…
