Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus Army Exercise and China-Russia Naval Drills near Korea
Pre-planed Russia-Belarus joint Zapad 2017 War Games ran from September 14 to 20th, 2017. The official number of participating troops, according to Russian and Belorussian official sources, was less than 13 thousand.
There are several things you should know about the army drills usually referred to as ‘Zapad Exercise.’ Zapad drills started in the 1970s USSR. Since then they were conducted every 2-4 years, on average. Last one was in 2013. The largest Zapad Exercise took place in 1980s, when 100,000 Soviet troops took part in Zapad drills.
The Western officials, notably, German defense minister, NATO, as well as Swedish officials and presidents of Poland and the Baltic states, have been convulsing in hysterics since July 2017. According to German war minister, not 12.5 thousand, but 100,000 troops took place in the exercise. Moreover, according to accusations, Russians had a clandestine plan to sneak those extra troops into Belarus under the cover of the night and leave them there! Please explain to me how exactly do you ‘sneak in’ 100,000 troops plus hardware? Is it the same method used to ‘sneak in’ the invisible Russian troops into Donbass?
Furthermore, the devious Russian grand plan is apparently to use these secret troops to attack poor, defenseless Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia — and yeah, Sweden, too! Never mind all those NATO/US bases stationed there.
You probably won’t be surprised to find out that much of this ‘intel’ was supplied to NATO, Germany and others by… Poroshenko and Kiev junta. Just goes to show the level of professionalism and level of intelligence of the German defense ministry and NATO.
Of course, they want to believe this tale with all their might. Why? Because they are looking in the mirror, but are afraid to admit to themselves that it’s their own reflection they are looking at. It’s so much easier to blame everything on Russia. It’s what they’d do in a heartbeat ~ in other words, invade Russia ~ if only Russia didn’t have all those pesky nukes and other cutting-edge weapons they don’t know how to counter.
Don’t believe me; just take a quick look at history. In the past several hundred years Russia was repeatedly invaded by: Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, France, USA, Romania. In other words, the same countries that yell the loudest about ‘Russian threat,’ and the same countries that form NATO!
So, number one: Zapad 2017 was a pre-scheduled exercise, agreed upon 4 years ago, according to Russian sources.
To give you an idea of what’s behind the name, the word ‘zapad’ means in Russian ‘west.’ This is the type of exercise regularly conducted in the western regions of Russia, or USSR in previous days. There is also a similar exercise, also conducted regularly, which is called ‘Tsenter,’ meaning ‘center.’ Those drills take place in central Russia.
Incidentally, the word ‘Zapad’ is pronounced with accent on FIRST ‘a,’ not second, as I hear it pronounced by the Western MSM. Accent on second sounds just too funny, and has a completely different meaning.
Number two: NATO’s Anakonda 2016 exercise took place last year along the borders of Russia and Belarus and it was the largest NATO exercise since the Cold War. The stated purpose of Anakonda war games was to deflect ‘aggression’ by Russia. It was defensive in name only. NATO especially employed RUSSIAN-SPEAKING statists to practice on them various invasion, hostage-taking and interrogation techniques. Usually, war games are not supposed to state the nationality or exact identity of a supposed enemy. During Anakonda 2016 NATO, with avid insistence by Poland, broke this cardinal rule of international relations.
Therefore, even if Zapad 2017 was simply Russia’s and Belarus’s reaction to the outrageous and insulting muscle-flexing by NATO, they are perfectly within their right to do so! The only way to keep the NATO beast at bay is to constantly remind it that Russian invasion is way out of their league, no matter how much they dream of it. The result of each invasion against Russia always ends the same way. I almost dare them to try. The result will be very predictable.
All my readers, as well as all normal and reasonable Western countries’ residents, this one is for you!
Don’t you see what’s happening? NATO, US and Germany’s hysteria notwithstanding, don’t you notice that Poland and three tiny countries located in the Baltics (Lithuania, first and foremost, with its warmongering hitler-in-a-skirt Gribauskaite, also Latvia and Estonia), plus Ukraine’s junta, are trying to engineer a war between the West and Russia. By inventing the ‘Russian threat,’ continuously provoking Russia and escalating hysteria and fear-mongering, they are attempting to ensure that large Western countries, particularly US, France and Germany are tied into an obligation to defend them. They want insurance that if they provoke Russia into responding through their actions, US/Germany/NATO will treat them as victims, not as passive-aggressive provocateurs they are. This was the way WWI started: a manipulated provocation in a small country triggered the major countries’ clash in global war!
In fact, we have seen this so many times! For example, Poland was the earliest aggressor in WWII, who invaded Czechoslovakia together with Hitler, yet it insists it’s a poor victim of German and ‘Russian’ aggression. Saakashvili’s Georgia attacked S. Ossetia, yet it insisted that Russia attacked Georgia — and the likes of Merkel, BBC and CNN just ate it up. The same happened in 2014 with the Kiev junta – and this lie is still ongoing!
All the Dark State / Deep State forces notwithstanding, don’t you see that these secondary countries are trying to manipulate large countries, provoking a massive military confrontation? And the silly Western MSM and sheeple just keep parroting it.
There are other three factors that are important, but not primary. Still, I want to mention them.
- Pentagon and various weapons manufacturers, as well as similar war ministries and manufacturers in Europe want more money. To constantly receive that money they need to keep public in fear of an imaginary enemy. For them Russia always played the role of such convenient enemy. In fact, when Trump began talking about lessening USA’s contribution to NATO, EU countries decided to give US a bribe in the form of more weapons contracts and war games. The elements of this bribe are more US hardware in the EU and more US troops in Eastern Europe. This bribe has proven extremely useful in keeping the gluttonous US military-industrial complex happy, and therefore, in keeping USA fully invested in NATO.
- The bloated machine of NATO itself is having a hard time justifying its measly existence. Every time there is a talk of NATO outliving its usefulness, the sold-out Western MSM comes up with some sort of threat from Russia.
- By constantly maintaining the fear in their populace, US/EU/NATO countries can distract their populations from real problems, such as migrant crisis, terrorist attacks and the growing rape rate by migrants. The West is in the decline mode, albeit slowly. By maintaining this constant fear of an imaginary attack by Russia, they hope to consolidate their sheeple around powers that be, so the sheeple won’t begin rebelling and questioning the obvious.
And here is another great example of the West’s double standards:
Just check out this extensive Wikipedia article on Zapad 2017 exercise. And just check out the anti-Russian tone of this entry! To remind everyone, Wikipedia is supposed to be impartial and neutral.
Zapad 2017 (Russian: «Запад-2017», Belarusian: Захад-2017) is a joint strategic military exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and Belarus (the Union State) that formally began on 14 September 2017 and ended on 20 September 2017, in Belarus as well as in Russia‘s Kaliningrad Oblast and Russia′s other north-western areas. According to the information made public by the Defence Ministry of Belarus prior to the exercise, fewer than 13,000 personnel of the Union State are to take part in the military maneuvers, a number that does not trigger mandatory formal notification and invitation of observers under the OSCE‘s Vienna Document. Western analysts, however, believed in July 2017 that the total number of Russian troops, security personnel and civilian officials to be involved in the broader war-games will range from 60,000 to 100,000, which would make them Russia’s largest since the Cold War. Since 2016, concerns have been voiced in a number of NATO countries over Russia’s suspected ulterior motives and objectives in connection with the exercise.
And now I challenge you to find a similar Wikipedia article on Anakonda 2016, that will honestly say that there were ulterior motives in that NATO exercise, and that Russia raised concerns over the fact that Russian-speaking people were used in it as hostage props for training purposes!
I was actually curious to see how the tone of such article would be different from the Zapad 2017 entry. I typed in Google: ‘Anakonda 2016 wikipedia,’ and this is the page I got! There is only an entry in German, written in a very different tone. It appears that the relevant entry in English was blocked!
Video: Putin attends Zapad 2017 drills
More Zapad 2017 videos
Incidentally, per international rules and unlike US/EU/NATO in Anakonda 2016, Russia/Belarus used FICTIONAL countries in their war games. Another thing worth noting: Zapad 2017, unlike Anakonda 2016, was conducted deep into Belarus territory and far from its western border. In other words, as usual it is clear who is the aggressor, and who only seeks to defend.
At almost the same time as Zapad 2017, joint Russia-China naval drills were conducted near the Korean Peninsula. This is clearly a reaction to Donald Trump’s threat to destroy N. Korea. Just to save his neck and to be on the good side of the Dark State and the establishment, Trump is ready to plunge the world into a nuclear war.
Although not happy with N. Korea’s behavior, clearly, Russia and China won’t let US strike against it. The only way US can be warned not to intervene militarily is to demonstrate Russia and China’s joint resolve and military capability.
Video: Russia-China Naval drills near Korean shores
As I predicted — and sadly, my predictions materialized all too well and all too quickly, Trump has fully succumbed to pressure and behaves like a normal warmongering US president. In fact, he is on his way to surpass Obama, that typical war-mongering Nobel Peace Prize laureate. As I said a few months ago: forget Trump, don’t hope he’ll do anything good that is worth mentioning, and write him off as just another failure.

How fitting that the same ‘Ugly American’ traits were on full display in Trump’s speech, along with the belief/threat that spending more money on military is a substitute for diplomacy. How eerily prescient that the authors in 1958 negatively contrasted American “refusal to integrate” (today called American Exceptionalism) to the “polished abilities of Eastern Bloc (primarily Soviet) diplomacy”.
When Trump hurriedly gathered vassals for the impromptu UN summit, whose goal was to twist everyone’s arm so they would sign a declaration of the UN reform without looking, Putin chose to attend Zapad 2017 joint Russia-Belarus army drills. Incidentally, almost at the same time, there was also joint Russia-China military exercise. Coincidence? Perhaps not..
The Western hysteria surrounding the inflated number of troops at Zapad 2017 exercise and the supposed imminent attack by Russia against the EU vassals is another story, so silly and disgusting that I don’t even feel like bringing it up. I might still talk about Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus joint exercise and what it really means, in a separate piece.
This one right now is about Trump’s ‘UN reform.’ Trump needs a win, any perceived win — desperately. He needs to show that he is a ‘real American president’ and the big boss. The wins have been elusive, to say the least. No wins to declare in Syria, or Iraq, or Iran, or against tiny N. Korea. Reforming the UN could be such a win — NOT.
I would be the first to say that UN desperately needs a reform (and I wrote about it in 2014-15). I know Russia and China think so, too. But it simply won’t happen the way Trump proposes it. The reform is coming, or the UN will have to be disbanded, but certainly not on Trump’s timetable.
I can tell you right away that neither Russia, nor China, will agree to what Trump is proposing — a deal he is trying to strike behind closed doors and without consulting anyone else. Of course, US will use that as a pretext to blame Russia and China for being ‘uncooperative.’ But in this hybrid 4D war we are so far beyond that.
We see Donald’s custom-made straitjacket in full splendor and fully at work, as predicted. Trump’s usual brash and uncooperative style of conducting business, now exponentially multiplied by the fact that he completely succumbed to the Dark (Deep) State’s demands in order to survive his term without impeachment, is a very volatile and dangerous mix indeed!
US, the empire in full collapse mode, is becoming more and more unruly, and therefore, dangerous to all.
As I predicted in WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?, Trump gladly and expeditiously is making deals with those who wanted him gone, in the process betraying all he seemingly stood for and all those who voted for him, believing he would ‘drain the swamp.’ Instead, he became an integral part of said swamp.

Engineering Feat of the 21st Century: Crimean Bridge Brings Together Previously Unconnectable Shores
The Crimean Bridge, correctly called in Russian Krimsky Most or Kerchensky Most (the Kerch Bridge), is nearing completion, and may even be opened to traffic ahead of schedule in 2018!
The Crimean Bridge connects something that was previously considered unconnectable: The Crimean Peninsula and mainland Russia, through the Kerch Strait between Black and Azov Seas.
This construction has already been dubbed ‘The Engineering Feat of the 21st Century.’ You may ask, what is all the noise about? Why is it such a big deal and why it’s so important geopolitically, economically, and as yet another step towards full Russian sovereignty and fulfillment of Russia’s destiny as THE GREAT BALANCER, DURING THIS EARTH SHIFT.
Right near the surface there are these obvious reasons:
1. The Crimean Bridge is a symbol. Of what? First of all, of the awakening and re-consolidation of Russia – The Great Balancer. The giant, which sometimes goes to sleep to meditate on the past and recuperate from previous ills, is re-awakening.
Russia’s role as the Great Balancer is paramount for this Great Earth Shift. Russia has to be at her best and strongest. The fact that such a significant bridge is being built is a sign that Russia is getting back into shape.
It is also a symbol that reminds people where they belong and what is right and what is wrong. It’s the bridge that connects and awakens people not only in Russia, but in many other places, including Ukraine (and those sorely need an awakening!).
2. It is already considered the most impressive sea bridge in the world. The total length of the bridge is 20 km. A very long and massive bridge, this billions-worth mega-infrastructure project, is being successfully fulfilled despite all the Western anti-Russia sanctions.
This multipurpose strategic project will tremendously boost the economical auto and train traffic to and from Crimea. This, in turn, will eliminate traffic jams, boost tourism to Crimean resorts and lower prices. A win-win for Crimea and all of Russia.
3. The bridge is necessary to ensure a complete infrastructure independence of Crimea from Ukraine, which in turn takes away some blackmail and sabotage leverage from the Kiev junta, EU and US.
I previously wrote how Kiev junta, in collusion with the Crimean Tartar Mejlis and ukro-nazi battalions blew up power transformers and demolished power lines to Crimea, leaving 2.5 million people without power in December 2015, in the middle of winter and right before holidays. Together with the Western sanctions, this was designed to cripple Russia and ignite a color revolution among unhappy Crimeans. During such confusion and/or color revolution, Kiev/Mejlis and their foreign sponsors — US/CIA, and at the time also Turkey — hoped to invade Crimea.
Russia immediately responded to the challenge by beginning an urgent construction of the underwater Energy Bridge to Crimea from mainland, through the Kerch Strait.
Those who masterminded and financed this mass sabotage, knew that Crimean infrastruture depended completely on the favor of Ukraine. Moreover, they calculated that due to the USSR breakup and ’90s pirate privatization Russia had stopped producing certain equipment necessary to quickly eliminate the Crimean power deficiency, such as underwater electric cables, emergency generators and portable power stations. Shipping also was a huge problem; they counted on the fact that the only railroad and only two highways to Crimea were built through Ukraine.
Again, as I emphasized many times before, ALL infrastructure was built on the territory we today call Ukraine, by Russia. It all began with the Russian tsars and industrial entrepreneurs in the 18th-19th centuries, starting with Catherine the Great. The USSR continued the development and building up of Ukraine.
What we know today as Donbass, with all its mining and industrial activity, was created by Russia; Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Dnepropetrovsk, and innumerable other towns, cities and ports were founded throughout earlier centuries by Catherine the Great or other Russian emperors, or by the Soviets in the 20th century.
Those who yell and scream about Ukraine being completely independent of Russia are simply usurious liars, who are eating through the last remnants of the formerly rich Russian/Soviet inheritance, which Ukraine was lucky to obtain as a result of the break-up of the USSR.
During the December 2015 power outage, as a result of Western sanctions, no Western company would supply electric generators so the children and the elderly of Crimea wouldn’t freeze to death. Russia found a quick solution to this: portable power generators, and even whole portable power plants, were purchased from China. Some of these were delivered to Crimea as quickly as within 2 weeks.
Russia also immediately began construction of the underwater Power Bridge through the Kerch Strait, consisting of 4 lines of power cables. The power cables were also supplied by China on an emergency basis. First two power lines were completed in record time, before the New Year 2016. The last two were built by May 2016. New power plants were urgently built in Crimea, as well. As a result, not only Crimea now has enough self-sufficient power, it actually has a surplus of it, in order to accommodate a growing number of tourists.
Along with the Power Bridge, new phone and TV cable underwater bridges from mainland were also built. As a result Crimea became almost completely independent of Ukraine’s whims.
Next, Kiev tried the ‘food blockade’ of Crimea. The same thugs, such as Mejlis and ukro-nazis (all banned terrorist organizations in Russia, by the way), stopped farming produce trucks from Kherson, Nikolaev and Odessa, and didn’t let them pass to Crimea. As a result, it wasn’t Crimea that suffered: they damaged Ukrainian agriculture and put their own farmers in dire straits. Crimea quickly replaced Ukrainian supplies with those from other countries, including Turkey.
This was an interesting twist, and here’s why: Turkish extremists, working together with Mejlis, participated in the sabotage of Crimea; Turkey had high hopes of annexing Crimea for a long time. There is credible intel that Kiev, in collusion with the US, planned to pass Crimea to Turkey in exchange for Turkey’s continued hosting of US/EU NATO bases on its territory. At least in part it was Turkish money that financed Mejlis and their various terrorist activities.
However, Putin had managed to successfully neutralize these activities and ‘aspirations’ by Turkey, in his usual brilliant chess grandmaster style. I wrote about all this in EARTH SHIFT REPORTS 7 and 13. Well worth the read!
And as I wrote in 2014, US planed to turn Crimea into its massive military/navy base since early 2000s. Preparations were underway. But then in March 2014, after the Kiev coup, Crimeans ‘suddenly’ decided to reunite with Russia — and what a surprise it was for those who know nothing of the world and other cultures, but think they can rule this world. I can tell you: in Washington, they still can’t recover from the Crimea independence shock… They really did think Crimea was theirs for the taking.
After all the above failed, Kiev junta and CIA had taken to attempting terror acts inside Crimea. Russian FSB was extremely successful and efficient in apprehending ALL would-be terrorists, along with their subversive equipment.
The plan of synchronized multiple attacks on Crimea from within was rather grand: they were preparing to blow up the Crimean Bridge, blow up power stations and poison potable water all over the peninsula, thus creating humanitarian catastrophe, shortages, mass panic and confusion. All this was supposed to happen simultaneously, in a coordinated effort. The entire, grandly designed plan collapsed when FSB began apprehending Ukraine SBU operatives involved in it. Apprehended were also some Ukrainian sleeper cells and Crimean Tartars secretly involved with Mejlis.
Therefore, all possible ways to sabotage Russia and Crimea had failed.
At this point, the West has finally understood that Crimea is a forever part of Russia. No discussion and no stipulations. The EU has been timidly talking about lessening or taking off completely anti-Russian sanctions. However, predictably, their big boss from across the ocean won’t let them.
It has to be also noted that despite the blockade and animosity by Ukraine, in 2017 alone hundreds of thousands of Ukraine citizens continued vacationing in Crimea. Similarly, hundreds of thousands also worked as seasonal migrant workers, since Crimean salaries (now that it’s a part of Russia) are presently 2-4 times more than on the other side.
In addition to the Crimean Bridge, Russia is also building a new railroad, to bypass Ukraine completely. This railroad from Moscow and central Russia goes around Ukraine and will eventually continue through Crimean (Kerch) Bridge into Crimea. This will resolve any remaining transportation issues.
But there’s so much more beneath the surface! Why is the Crimean Bridge touted ‘the Feat of the 21st Century?’
In previous centuries, there were multiple attempts to build a bridge between mainland and Crimea, through the Kerch Strait — the narrowest point between two shores. However, all of these attempts failed.
The Kerch Strait is a point of separation between The small Azov Sea in the north, and a much larger Black Sea to the south. People who had never been to those parts may think that Black Sea is a quiet internal sea, which should be pretty safe. They can’t even imagine how unsafe and turbulent Black Sea can be. The area of the Black Sea around Kerch is considered one of the most stormy and hard to navigate. Currents between Azov and Black Seas can be deadly and changeable. Winds are very powerful. This is why the eastern-most part of Crimea, the Kerch Peninsula, had never really developed as a resort. People flocked to the quiet and soothing southern parts, such as Yalta. Instead, Kerch historically served as one of the Russian fleet bases.
The first attempt to build a bridge between the narrowest part of the Kerch Strait and mainland was made during the Russian Empire, in the 19th century. Crimea was growing as a resort and vineyards, and more convenient access points were wanted. However, strong winds and currents overcame the budding bridge very quickly and the project was abandoned, although calls to restart it continued.
In the 20th century two most dramatic attempts to build a bridge took place. In the 1930s, the USSR began the construction of the bridge through the same narrow part of the Kerch Strait. The temporary bridge was built and began working. Joseph Stalin rode the bridge to Crimea, and later returned to mainland via the same bridge. The day after Stalin’s passage the bridge collapsed.
During the Great Patriotic War (WWII) Hitler decided to build a bridge to Crimea in order to invade Crimea from more than one direction. The bridge was almost completed, when it collapsed and was carried away by the current, taking innumerable invaders with it.
After WWII the USSR never attempted another bridge. I do think that Khrushchev’s decision to pass Crimea under the administrative umbrella of the Ukrainian SSR was a huge geopolitical mistake. However, I’ll venture to guess that the difficulty and inconvenience of communication and transportation between the peninsula and Russian mainland was at least a contributing factor in his decision. The idea was that being under the UkrSSR administrative umbrella, Crimea would have a smoother logistics. Of course at the time, no one dreamed that Russia and Ukraine may not be together.
The construction of the new Russsian Crimean Bridge / Kerch Bridge started after the 2014 ukro-nazi coup in Kiev, and following the power-and-food blockade. By then it became abundantly clear that there was no reasoning with Ukraine’s junta.
In the 21 century the new technologies, unavailable to previous generations, are used to build this seemingly impossible to build bridge.
One of the things that was done differently: the bridge is NOT being built through the narrowest part of the strait, which is by far the shortest, but is also the most dangerous. Instead, a substantially longer, but safer area was chosen. Another technological breakthrough: the extra-long and extra-powerful pillars, which are screwed into the sea bed. The trick is, these don’t go into the sea bed straight, but at specific angles, which makes the whole structure much more stable.
Yesterday, the great news arrived: the main railway arch of the bridge was delivered and set in place. The creation and installation of this giant central arch is a feat in itself. Its length is almost 300 meters, and it weighs 6,600 tones. It was the very first time in history that such large object was pre-built on land, then delivered intact by sea and installed whole in the middle of the sea.
Watch video, showing the railway arch in place. Also, on this video – the first barge to pass under the Crimean Bridge arch:

As I mentioned, the Crimean Bridge project is perceived as an important and meaningful symbol in Russia. At this moment, Russia’s most important music festival is taking place in Sochi. It is called The New Wave (Novaya Volna). At the New Wave, one of the best known Russian singers, Oleg Gazmanov, has presented new song ‘Krimsky Most’ (‘The Crimean Bridge’). The song is the winner of the ‘Crimean Bridge Song Competition’ and is written by a driver from Ivanovo, together with his children ~ see my additional info and video in this post’s COMMENT SECTION!
Listen up – a nice melody:
P.S. Incidentally, the New Wave festival for years took place in Yurmala, Latvia. This is a grand international annual event, bringing together new and established musical talent from many countries. At this international festival all songs are performed in Russian. After Latvia joined anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and began denying visas to Russian singers, such as the aforementioned Oleg Gazmanov, Novaya Volna (the New Wave) was moved to Sochi. Simultaneously, a prestigious Russian comedy competition, also taking place in Yurmala, Latvia, was also moved onto Russian territory. And then, another extremely prestigious and mega-popular international summer music and humor festival, called Muzikalny Kivin (Musical Kivin) was also moved from Latvia to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, also located on the Baltic coast.
Therefore, overnight Latvia lost multi-million Russian tourism and music festival business.
But I’m sure Latvia is doing just fine! After all, instead of the uplifting music festivals and peaceful tourists, a few hundred US soldiers moved into town as part of NATO expansion, due to ‘imminent Russian invasion threat.’ Surely, they’ll spend in local bars and (excuse me) brothels much more than hundreds of thousands of Russian music-lovers and beach-goers would! I hear US/NATO soldiers stationed in Riga tend to conveniently forget to pay for their drinks and taxi rides, so that at times local bartenders and taxi drivers have to beat it out of them. Fast karma?..

In late December 2016 US, still under Obama, suddenly announced seizure of Russian diplomatic properties and expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic staff, together with families. People with school children were given less than 48 hours to clear out of the country, in violation of any and all human rights, and right before New Year’s and Christmas.
At that time, Russia did nothing, awaiting Trump’s presidency and hoping he would conduct a more sane policy.
There was a PROMISE made by Trump — and therefore an expectation by the Russian side — that US would return illegally expropriated Russian diplomatic properties. This promise was supposed to materialize during or after the long-anticipated meeting between Putin and Trump during G20 in Hamburg, Germany. Nothing transpired and Trump together with Tillerson dodged all Russian inquiries.
Vladimir Putin meets Donald Trump at G20 in Hamburg, Germany
After waiting for any progress till the end of July, Russia announced that US diplomatic staff in the country was being reduced by 755 people, to maintain parity with the number of Russian diplomatic staff in the US. The reduction comes into effect as of September 1. The number of US staff remaining in Russia is to stay at 455, which would be on par with the number of Russian diplomats in the US.
As is apparent from the blown out of proportion numbers of US diplomatic staff, said ‘staff’ was very hard at work trying to orchestrate a Kiev-style Maidan and color revolution in Russia, in time for Russian presidential elections in March 2018.
A warehouse on the outskirts of Moscow and a dinky US dacha near Moscow were also ordered to be vacated. To be sure, the little dacha / summer cabin in the woods near Moscow does not come close to the Russian diplomatic resort property expropriated by the US. Russia bought that resort in 1970s and paid $1.2 mln at the time. Therefore, Russian private property was illegally expropriated by the US. Meanwhile, the dacha property near Moscow was GIVEN to the US diplomats as a diplomatic gesture.
Another thing that is striking is that Russian authorities gave American diplomats and their families a full month to wrap up their affairs and move out of the country. If any of them had school children, they were hardly affected as it was in the summer, and enough time was given to find new schools for the kids. Let’s recall that USA simply THREW OUT Russian families from the country, not even giving them enough time to pack, and it happened in the middle of a school year!
But that was only the beginning of this new diplomatic 4D war. As many around the globe have noticed, there is no difference whether it’s Bush, Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama, or Trump. US is only happy when it creates conflict and wars all over the globe. They are too afraid to attack Russia directly. In fact, as I’d predicted since 2014, they’ll NEVER DARE. But they find ways to do it insidiously and clandestinely, escalating conflict in every way they can. This is the nature of the beast…
Where are all of Trump’s campaign promises, such as pulling out of Afghanistan and Iraq, improving relations with Russia, making a peaceful effort in Syria? Instead we see Trump and the crazies around him escalating N. Korean crisis, getting into fights with China, sending more troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, interfering in Syria, Picking fights with Iran, promising lethal weapons to the fascist Kiev junta in order to attack the people of Donbass and provoke Russia, and as a cherry on the cake — new escalation of diplomatic conflict with Russia.
Recently US announced that all US visas to Russian citizens were being canceled. Moreover, US completely stopped giving out new US visas to Russian citizens. It was also announced by the US State Department that all visas being presently processed will be denied and money will NOT be refunded. In addition to everything, in a true highway robber style, they also stiffed people for their money.
But apparently, not too many Russians apply for US visas, so it turned out to be a pin prick. Those ‘Russians’ who are on US payroll, tasked by their handlers to perform anti-Russian work within the country, will continue getting their visas to the US as they did previously. But normal Russian citizens won’t, and not many are that interested, anyway.
Therefore, denying all Russian visas, present and future, wasn’t enough. That was quickly discovered by the US. They thought long and hard and decided to do some more spectacular damage to Russia-US relations. Earlier today US State Department announced that US shuts down the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco, CA, as well as consular annexes in Washington D.C. and New York.
They hope, said the US State Dept statement, that after this gesture by the US, US-Russia relations will finally begin improving. Anyone rolling on the ground from laughter yet?..
And, in its normal highway bandit manner, the generous US yet again has given 48 hours to Russian families to leave the country.
I had predicted since early 2016 that Trump would be put in that proverbial ‘straitjacket,’ not being able to move and make good on any of his promises, and that he would be made toe the line.
It happened exactly as predicted, and then some. But I’m finding that I was being too nice, giving him too much benefit of the doubt. In fact, Trump caved in to pressure so quickly and so fully that some people’s jaws dropped. Instead of ‘draining the swamp,’ per his campaign promises, he promptly and very successfully got sucked into it, all the way to the brim of his orange hair. Looks like he and his loyal followers are now very happy to co-exist in the same swamp together with the outdated system they vowed to change and those pundits of the system Trump claimed had to go.
I said a couple of months ago that you can forget Trump and all his promises. He has become an ordinary lame duck US president, and he will toe the line as he is told, just to survive. He is now working hard to show his real Dark State masters that he is a good little boy and deserves to finish his term, without impeachment.
In other words, Donald Trump turned out to have even less backbone than anticipated.
The Dark State wants to preserve status quo, and it’s doing a splendid job at it. And the problem? All they are achieving is delaying the day or reckoning. The longer it is delayed, the worse the weight of the USA’s karmic debt will become. Debt repayment may be delayed for several more years, but not much longer than that, as we discussed in Earth Shift Webinar 4.
And in conclusion:
There is a rumor that Rex Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as US Secretary of State. Per reports, he is fed up, but is trying to finish one year and leave by the end of 2017, so it looks good on his resume. Rats are abandoning the sinking ship.
After leaving, Tillerson will have a lot of damage control to do. I strongly suspect it’ll be too little too late to fix business relations with Russia for Exxon Mobil and other US companies.
It has been known that large American companies have been unsuccessfully lobbying US Congress not to impose new sanctions on Russia, saying that it would damage their business with Russia, as well as that with the EU. EU companies and key EU countries as a whole are hard hit by the new US energy sanctions against Russia. So are US energy giants, such as Exxon Mobil. EU is considering certain response sanctions against the US companies doing business in the EU. At the very least, US companies will find it harder to work in the EU. Yet, none of this stopped the Congress from passing anti-Russian sanctions.
Back in 2014 I said that we should forget the old adage that ‘politics is concentrated economics’ and that economy is what drives geopolitics. This is an outdated notion that only worked in Period 7, for some very specific reasons discussed Earth Shift Webinar 4. Here’s my formula: In PERIOD 8 and throughout this entire EARTH SHIFT, it is geopolitics that is primary, while economy is its servant and appendix.

HEADS UP, DEAR FUTURIST TRENDCAST FOLLOWERS!
Denny Hunt, the host of WhyIsThisTrue, and I have recorded a new interview. In the interview we discuss why some people in the West feel a mysterious connection to Russia when they seemingly have no Russian heritage. What is behind this attraction — past lives? Or is it the fact that people are awakening to the fact that Russia – The Great Balancer is the only force on the planet which can provide stability and balance? We also discuss: the forbidden history of Russia and how the history of the world was falsified; The New Chronology by Fomenko and Nosovsky, and how and why 1000 years were added to the so-called ‘medieval times.’
This interview should come up in a few days (I’ll let you know and provide the links)!

DIPLOMATIC WAR: RUSSIA TO EXPEL 755 US DIPLOMATS AND STAFF
Putin has announced that the staff of the American embassy in Moscow, as well as consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok are to be reduced by 755 people. This will bring the US diplomatic and support staff in Russia to 455 people, down from 1100, which will be on par with the number of Russian diplomatic and support staff in the US. Both US diplomatic and technical staff has to leave the country by September 1.
Moscow also announced that US diplomatic missions in Russia are losing the use of storage facilities in Chertanovo area of Moscow, as well as the embassy dacha resort in Serebryany Bor near Moscow.
US embassy Chertanovo warehouses access to which has been revoked as of August 1:
Side note about color revolution in Russia, pro-West ‘opposition’ and Navalny
I should mention that Trump recently announced that the US ambassador and much of the staff in Russia would be replaced soon. It’s not clear yet what form it would take, but there is a possibility of more future Russian sanctions against new US staff, most, if not all of whom tend to be engaged in creating a color revolution and regime change in Russia. As the 2018 Presidential Election in Russia nears, the US embassy spies have tripled their efforts to destabilize Russia.
A notorious recent example was how in the middle of a local election US diplomats were caught on camera meeting with opposition leader Alexey Navalny. Similar documented meetings, including passing on of suitcases full of cash took place in the past. Some of that had been caught on camera and shown on national Russian TV.
Navalny is well-known for his unsanctioned, openly manipulative and provocative rallies in Moscow, the latest of which was a provocation during a Russian State holiday, subjecting unsuspecting holiday-goers with families and small children to danger in the center of Moscow. Navalny was also exposed for recruiting young teenagers to do his bidding, who were promised a good payday for coming out to protest (sounds familiar — Kiev Maidan anyone?). Per Russian sources, Alexey Navalny had previously been exposed in various journalistic investigations as a CIA asset on US payroll.
The true popular support of Navalny and other anti-Putin, pro-West ‘opposition’ leaders is anywhere between 1 and 2 percent, as previous elections showed. However, using the support and training US and their vassal Poland provide, they make a lot of noise on social media and in streets, attempting to reproduce the Kiev Maidan 2014 scenario. Are they really this stupid and don’t get it that Ukraine scenario is impossible in Russia, that the population will simply come out and bury them, should they try anything like that? In part, yes, they are that stupid. After all, it did work for them to dismantle the Soviet Union. They run on the old CIA playbook inertia, failing to grasp that today’s Russia, and Putin as Russia’s leader, are a completely different story.
But in part, they don’t care if they achieve their ultimate goal or not. Plan B involves simply destabilizing Russia, weakening Putin and miring Russia in internal problems, so that Russia and Putin cannot participate effectively in their role as The Great Balancer of the Planet Earth. If they can somehow make Putin so weak and compromised that he would not run for presidency next year, that would be their ultimate wet dream (obviously, NOT gonna happen).
In conclusion of this side note, I recommend you check out my essential FT article exposing Michael McFaul: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. This wolf in sheep’s clothing, universally hated in Russia, is now engaged through his Twitter account in very skillfully igniting discord between Russia and US, and Russia and Ukraine. As I said in above-linked article, when they choose to use their talents for evil, all of us suffer.
As usual, Putin waited till last second with his ‘US diplomatic staff reduction’ move and gave as much benefit of the doubt to Trump administration as possible. And as usual, Putin’s move is surgically designed and carefully thought through.
If you recall, just as he was leaving the White House in December, Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats, giving them and their families, including school children, hardly 48 hours to leave the country. Check out my December 2016 article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats. Lada Ray analysis and calibrations. This was done in a notoriously cruel and inhumane fashion, so that families would be unable to settle their financial, housing and school affairs. In fact, they hardly had any time to pack.
Obama also took away two Russian diplomatic resorts, where the children of diplomats could go to summer camp and where families went for R&R. One such resort was not far from Washington DC. In 1977, The Soviet government officially purchased the compound for $1.2 mln.
Usually, such diplomatic compounds would be swapped between countries, based on mutual agreement. For instance, there was an agreement between the USSR, inherited by Russia, and USA about mutual exchange of properties in each country, to be used for diplomats and their families as private resorts or other needs. If the US allotted a piece of such real estate to Russia (USSR) in the US, a comparable piece of real estate had to be allotted to the USA in Russia.
The problem is that the resort near Washington DC wasn’t even a part of the exchange deal. It was purchased for $1.2 mln fair and square, and was fully owned by Russia. Therefore, taking away that particular resort amounts to an illegal expropriation of private property by the US government, using threats and force. This never happened even at the height of the Cold War. And you still think the USSR was bad?
I described why this was done by the USA right before the New Year – Christmas holidays, in the above referenced article: I Hate Being Right! Obama/US expel 35 Russian diplomats.
The first words ‘I hate being right’ refer to the fact that I predicted things like this would happen in my bestselling Earth Shift Report 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER (release Oct. 20-21, 2016).
In the report I predicted that Trump would be put in a straitjacket so he would not be able to fulfil his campaign promises. I also said that there would be no need to assassinate him, that a whole big and all-encompassing campaign would be designed around him and his people, in order to sabotage anything he tried to change, until he would be forced to cave in and make deals in order to simply survive.
The frantic activity to sabotage Russia-US relations in late December by Obama, when usually a lame duck president would be playing golf, accounts for the fact that the outgoing administration had to create as many obstacles to improving Russia-US relations as possible. As we remember, ‘improving Russia-US relations’ was one of the key promises of the Trump campaign, which no doubt helped him win presidency.
In EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM (release Feb. 4, 2017) I re-affirmed what I said in Earth Shift Report 16. I also expanded on it and brought up new details and intel. Just a week into Trump being in office it was already abundantly clear that he would quickly cave in and try to make deals with those who did everything to sabotage him — in order to survive. In the webinar we talked about the probability of impeachment, and when it was likely happen.

4D WAR BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW: TRUMP’S STRAITJACKET & NEW ANTI-RUSSIAN SANCTIONS
In my writings and talks, I also explained why Russia did not retaliate as soon as the Russian diplomats were expelled and Russian property was expropriated by the USA. Putin and Russia understood what was happening. They were graciously giving the Trump administration time to settle in and act accordingly. One of the promises Trump made early on was that once in office, he would immediately take steps to return Russian properties and diplomats. It never happened. Russians still waited, because during phone calls, Trump explained to ‘dear Vladimir’ that he was in a tight spot: recall the phrase I coined while predicting this outcome: ‘Trump’s straitjacket.’
July 7-8 G20 in Hamburg came, along with the much-anticipated meeting between Putin/Lavrov and Trump/ Tillerson. Discussed were Syria, Ukraine and N. Korea, as well as anti-Russian sanctions and China. The promise by Trump administration to return Russian diplomats and properties was raised more than once during negotiations, according to Russian FM Lavrov. After the meeting, Lavrov stated, with a very disappointed expression on his face, that no progress on that front was achieved and that the work would continue.
Let’s recall that the only progress that was achieved during G20 Trump-Putin meeting, as far as Russia-US cooperation goes, was on Syria. This corresponds with my EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM prediction, where I said that I am reasonably skeptical (I tried to break the bad news slowly and mildly) about Trump being able to turn around relations with Russia due to his tight straitjacket, and that the only cooperation between Russia and US I can see is in Syria — and only tactical, only in small ways, nothing substantial or truly groundbreaking.
Trump’s straitjacket turned out very tight; it was constructed solidly and much faster than many of my readers thought possible. That is because they didn’t waste any time: Plan B was already in motion even before US election, when it was becoming clear that Trump could win, while Hillary was not fit for office. And what did you think, they’d wait, naively hoping their candidate would win? These forces, lurking in the dark, work on contingencies months and even years ahead, depending on the situation.
Speaking of planning… I am sure Russia was preparing the US diplomats expulsion months ahead as well, but was giving Trump/Tillerson the benefit of the doubt till last second. In the true fashion of the Great Balancer and Harmonizer, Russia wanted to see whether it was possible to resolve the issue without rocking the boat and without wrecking the US-Russia relationship even further.
However, instead of any sort of return gesture of good will, typically for the aggressively imbalanced West, Russia received new sanctions. These new sanctions, passed by the Congress by a landslide (only 3 were against), target Russia’s very economic livelihood: the Energy Sector. They also target one of the key Russian infrastructure projects to the EU: Nord Stream 2. In fact, the document published by Congress, which details sanctions against three main US enemies, Russia, Iran and N. Korea, dedicates two-thirds of its pages to Russia. It states point-blank that the goal of the US is to sabotage Nord Stream 2 at all cost.
Trump didn’t sign the new sanctions into law yet, but there is no chance of his vetoing them as the Congress adopted them practically anonymously and presidential veto can be easily overcome. This is that ‘Trump’s straitjacket’ — in action. This is that by-partisan war against Trump in full swing, of which I warned in Earth Shift Report 16 and EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 1.
Therefore, dear readers, you can forget about Trump if you still had any illusions.
By the way, look at what happened with the repeal of Obamacare, and look at the number McCain has pulled on the Senate floor. As I advised you all in 2015-16: forget old divisions on democrats vs. republicans, left vs. right wing. This is all so 20th century!
The new No. 1 telltale litmus test of who is who is how they feel and act regarding Russia. No. 2: how they feel about US hegemony and bases all over the world. Once you have done these two tests, you can know for sure if such and such politician deserves your vote.
In this regard, I would like to ask you all, my dear American readers. Who has voted in a Congress full of rabid Russophobes? The Congress represents in a nutshell the American people. Is that what Americans really are?
VP Mike Pence has indicated that Trump will be signing the new anti-Russian sanctions because ‘of Russia’s destabilizing role in Ukraine.’ In other words, Trump completely caved in to survive his first term, as predicted. But it’s very doubtful he will, also as predicted. I’ll monitor this situation. But my general advice: forget Trump, he is finished — CONSIDER THIS MY NEW PREDICTION.
Speaking of which, the rumor is Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as Secretary of State. It’s visible to the naked eye that he is experiencing threats and huge pressure, and cannot control his own employees. Don’t blame him, ultimately, he values his life too. But he will (most likely) stay till the end of this year. I am not too concerned about the likes of Tillerson. These types always morph and adapt to whatever comes their way, they easily betray their principles and promises, if it suits them. Tillerson, just like Trump, may have had some relatively good ideas about making up with Russia, etc., but he, along with Trump, can easily forget those ideas, and make deals with the devil in order to come out of this situation with a personal gain, or at least with as little loss as possible.
However, the point is Trump is losing allies and shedding people left and right. Very soon he’ll be left all alone and will cave in completely.
4D WARS INTENSIFY: US-RUSSIA GAS WAR, EUROPE & NORD STREAM 2
The new anti-Russian sanctions target Western and Central Europe and those EU companies that are participating in Nord Stream 2. The enthusiasm for Nord Stream 2 in Europe has been huge. Something to the tune of $5.5 euros was pledged by EU investors immediately, before the construction began. At this point the Nord Stream pledge should be bigger than that.
Germany is the biggest investor. In addition to pledged billions, it has vested interest and direct participation in the construction. Germany supplies the gas pipes for the project, those same pipes that are targeted by new sanctions.
Italy, Austria, Hungary, Finland and others also pledged billions and participation. Germany is the hardest hit, but all these countries are in shock. After all, they are so used to doing what US tells them to do. Now they find themselves in an unnatural territory. There is much hurt feeling that ‘the US has betrayed its biggest ally EU.’ It took them this long to figure it out? I was warning EU about it since 2014. There is also noise in the EU about possible return anti-US sanctions, but do the brainwashed and sold-out EU elites have the courage and will to act?
Ultimately, it all depends on whether Germany will take the lead in the rebellion against the US, as only Germany pulls enough wight. I can tell you that Merkel won’t — she is too far gone. And this is why I have predicted since 2016 that Merkel would lose her election in the autumn of 2017!
The only hope is that the newly elected chancellor will be less sold-out and a little more courageous. However, the prognosis is not very good, despite the fact that German and European companies will suffer huge losses and for some the inability to benefit from Nord Stream 2 will be a kiss of death. When I say ‘for some,’ I mean not just companies, but whole countries. Austria and Hungary are very worried because for them Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream are the only possibility to ensure a secure gas supply for years to come.
Speaking of US lap dogs and French poodles! The moment US Congress passed anti-Russian sanctions, France withdrew its 2 bln euro investment in Nord Stream 2.
Remember the first round of anti-Russian sanctions in 2014 and how France was forced by US to forfeit its delivery of the Navy carrier it had built for Russia? A billion+ project was literally thrown away. Russia got its money back through court, and although some sort of reduced deal was made to sell the ship to a third party, France lost both money and business reputation as a result. After that, India pulled out of lucrative deals with France.
This time, France decided not to wait and withdrew its Nord Stream 2 investment even before Trump signed the new anti-Russian sanctions.
The reason many European countries are worried is Russia’s 2016 announcement that Ukraine transit will be discontinued permanently as soon as the present transit contract expires on January 1, 2019. After that, Russia plans to let the Soviet-built pipe running through Ukraine to rot out unused. This would take the blackmail leverage away from Kiev: it won’t be able to blackmail either Moscow or EU, using its gas transiter status.
However, this announcement by Russia does a lot more. It also ensures that after January 1, 2019 USA loses all leverage over Russia and EU from the side of Ukraine. As I pointed out before, the fascist Kiev junta, and by extension, the occupied by them Ukraine, is used as a ram against Russia. But it’s also used as a blackmail tool against Europe/EU, and especially Germany. But not only Germany; many countries are feeling the pinch, including Austria, Finland, Hungary, Slovakia and Czechia, to name a few.
USA cannot afford this poison anti-Russian thorn it has created to be rendered useless. This is why Nord Stream 2 has to be sabotaged at all cost.
Many experts have said that the reason US wants to sabotage Nord Stream 2 is because USA wants to squeeze Russia out European market in order to sell their own fracking LNG gas to Europe. That’s just silly. Europeans aren’t that stupid and they know how to count their money. US fracking gas will be 3-4 times more expensive than Russia gas. It’s only Poland and the Baltics that could consider such ripoff to be a good deal. Russia doesn’t care about either Poland or Baltics, but Russia does care about lucrative business with the EU, and would like to keep EU markets, if at all possible.
The true reason for the new US sanctions is geopolitical, not economic. Even ‘Washington dreamers’ aren’t stupid enough to think EU will buy their gas at such prices and before infrastructure is even built. I spoke about this when Ukraine coup and anti-Russian sanctions began in 2014, and we are back to this yet again. What US is after is three things:
- Sabotage and keep down Russia – The Great Balancer as much as possible, preventing Russia’s normal live and steady development, if it’s not possible to annihilate Russia altogether.
- Sabotage and weaken Europe / EU as much as possible, as USA’s main technological competitor. But it goes further than that: a weaker Europe is a more subservient and less sovereign Europe. US is desperately clinging to the old 20th century model, under which weakened by WWII Europe was completely under US and did what the big boss said. US wants to keep that status quo, which is slowly slipping away, due to the Great Earth Shift.
- Keep Ukraine on life support, also completely subservient to the US, as a poison thorn in Russia’s side. This thorn can be activated at any moment to cause pain for Russia, but if need be, it can also be turned against the EU. US is desperate to keep Ukraine as that very important poison thorn. If Russian gas transit through Ukraine stops, then the role of Ukraine as anti-Russia on Russian borders strongly diminishes, until US has to abandon ‘the project Ukraine’ altogether. Trump has talked about slowly disengaging from Ukraine, but his surroundings and Congress won’t let him. The likes of McCain and Pence, and just about everyone else, will make him toe the line. The goal here is not to support Ukraine — they could care less about the people of Ukraine suffering and dying. The only use for Ukraine, from those dark entities’ perspective, is to use it as a poison pill, or as a ram against Russia and Europe. This is why they will support Ukraine till the last possibility.
Therefore, the main goal of the new anti-Russian sanctions is to slow down as much as possible the Nord Stream 2 construction, with the ultimate goal of weakening both Russia and EU.
In conclusion, please recall my 2014 prediction, which may come true, after all. As soon as the EU adopted first anti-Russian sanctions, I predicted that if Russia feels restricted by the West in any way, off to the East Russia goes. I said that Russia would quickly switch her focus to Asia and China. That’s exactly what happened: Russia and China became tighter than ever; various Asian and Middle Eastern countries beg for an increased Russian presence. (Read: Great Balancer Theory in Action! Iraq Requests Russia’s Military/Political Presence to Rebalance Region and World).
In the same set of 2014 predictions, I also said that as a result of sanctions EU may in several years time lose Russia as gas supplier and begin experiencing gas shortages. Today, July 31, 2017 Russia is preparing Plan B, in case EU caves in to US sanctions. Russian Plan B implies switching to alternative markets and alternative ways of gas delivery, which can cause serious gas shortages in certain EU countries, starting with Germany.
Let’s see if Germany and Europe in general have enough common sense and any sense of self-preservation left to act before it’s too late.

New page for the FREE EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE Q&A
In today’s hugely surprise announcement, the Head of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Alexandr Zakharchenko announced the creation of the new sovereign state of Malorossia, to replace the failing state of Ukraine. The announcement was made in the presence of representatives of all remaining 19 regions of Ukraine.
Video with full Malorossia announcement by Zakharchenko:
Malorossia translates correctly as ‘Russia Minor’ (not ‘little Russia’ as some do). This designation was assigned to differentiate it from the Great Russia, or basically, today’s Russia. The Malorossia region within the Russian Empire was formed by Catherine the Great around central, and partially, western regions of what we call today ‘Ukraine.’ The historic Novorossia (New Russia) was formed our of southern and eastern regions of today’s Ukraine, also by Catherine the Great.
The proposed flag of Malorossia will resemble the historic flag during Bogdan Khmelnitsky’s rule of Malorossia. The national hero of Ukraine, Cossack leader Bogdan Khmelnitsky, approached Catherine the Great, asking her to accept Malorossia along with ancestral Cossack territories called Zaporozhie (hence ‘Zaporozhskie kozaki’ – cossacks) as part of Russia. This offer of becoming a subject of the Russian State, in exchange for military protection against the Ottoman Empire’s, Crimean Tartar, Polish, Vatican and general Western invasions, was accepted. What we now call central and parts of western Ukraine became the new subject of the Russian Empire. By choosing the name Malorossia and the flag of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, the hint is made that eventually Malorossia aims at re-joining Russia.
Zakharchenko even identified the term: 3 years. During these three years DPR, with the help of experts from Russia, Belarus and other countries intends to form tribunals for crimes against humanity and treason committed by various Ukrainian elites. Zakharchenko has stated that Russia will be asked to extradite ex-president of Ukraine Yanukovich, to be tried in Malorossia. Others to be put on trial after the transition occurs are Poroshenko, Turchinov, Yatsenyuk and a long list of others. The crimes of Kiev and associated nazi battalions and organizations to be exposed, including the ATO and the genocide of the Donbass people, the burning of people in Odessa, and others.
Zakharchenko announced that Malorossia will encompass all oblasts of former Ukraine, excluding Crimea. It is to become a direct opposite alternative of the existing ukro-nazi state formed under the Kiev junta. It will be a non-fascist, free of oligarchs, democratically loose confederation of former Ukraine’s territories, with only the flag, army and federal finances concentrated in the hands of the state, and with a lot of power left in the hands of local authorities. The principles on which the new Malorossia state is to be formed are friendship and mutual cooperation. (Remember, these are the 5D principles!). As opposed to dominant around the world and in today’s Ukraine, exploitation, oppression and inequality.
Most importantly, The new Malorossia project offers the citizens of Ukraine a clear alternative: to be again friendly and close to Russia, something that the Kiev junta has completely denied its population.
Zakharchenko proposes the rule of direct democracy. The decision to join Malorossia has to be up to each citizen and each oblast of Ukraine. For that, internationally monitored referendums have to be held in each region, city and oblast of Ukraine. Let the people speak, the right they have been denied under Poroshenko Kiev regime.
Zakharchenko declaration implies that the new state of Malorossia is to become the rightful heir to the former, pre-Kiev-junta Ukraine. The capital of Malorossia is to be in Donetsk, and Kiev is to simply remain a cultural and historic center.
LADA’S 2 CENTS
It’s clear that both Russia and Donbass are searching for a new and more successful format for the future of the territory we so far call Ukraine.
I like the new proposal. It makes perfect sense, helps exit the dead-end Minsk talks. Via an electric shock, it awakens certain processes and creative juices, and gives hope to the long-suffering population of Donbass. It also challenges the West, as well as Russia, to respond and act. It also establishes the fact that Donetsk is a subject, not an object, of global politics and various negotiations. It affirms that Donetsk wants to lead, not to tag along. I like it, and I wish them all the success with the Malorossia project. It has a future.
Another thing that comes to mind is that this announcement has taken Kiev and just about anyone in the world by huge surprise.
But it wasn’t really a surprise. First, remember what I’d told you since February 4, 2017 in Webinar 1: Will Trump Survive his First Term? I said that US was preparing and looking for ways to quietly disengage from Ukraine, without losing face. Remember I described the Kissinger Plan for Ukraine and post-Soviet Space?
What is happening here, and what happened recently, as I described in: Moldova President Igor Dodon Issues Bold Indictment to the West. Ukraine update — these things are closely related.
The old borders and outdated geopolitical formats, which failed to withstand the test of time, won’t work any more. We are in the midst of the Great Earth Shift. Anything that hasn’t been well conceived, such as the slapped together controversial territory called Ukraine, can and will be swept away. New borders, states and new international formats have to emerge, and they are doing so.
I can also tell you that a significant chunk of those 2.5 hour closed-door negotiations between Putin and Trump at G20 in Hamburg were dedicated to Ukraine, Donbass and how to get out of this stalemate. (Read G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions!)
Warning: Zakharchenko announcement has already made a big controversial splash, including in Russia. There are forces who don’t want this to happen. But a push for change is needed — very badly.
Another problem: Zakharchenko hasn’t coordinated his announcement with Lugansk (LPR), which is not good. And according to some sources, it wasn’t coordinated with Moscow either, which is possible, but a little hard to believe.
And problem No. 3: remember what I said in G20, Putin, Trump, Ivanka, Merkel, Xi, BRICS: Lada Ray Quantum Calibrations and Predictions! ? Russia is not in a rush to be saddled with the destroyed territory of former Ukraine and to deal with its zombified population.
Zakharchenko quote: ‘We’ve been told by Kiev that we must return back to Ukraine. Sooner Ukraine will return to us.”
Recall my timeline for Ukraine turning back to Russia: by the end of 2018. I don’t mind if it takes a bit longer, as long as it’s done, and done right.

NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
DON’T MISS MY UPCOMING INTERVIEW!
Tonight we are recording my new interview with Paul Plane, host of the Plane Truth Show on the Time Monk Radio. If all goes well (I know it will 😉 ), the interview should go live around Tuesday. As usual, the official announcement and link will be up on FuturisTrendcast.
Among other things, we’ll discuss my view on the question that is the topic of this post: Why Deep State is Trying to Neutralize Trump?
However, you’ll find that the global Earth Shift chess game being played is so much more than that. Therefore, we’ll talk about Putin’s latest moves in Asia, France and post-Soviet space, and why cabal must isolate Russia at all cost. I’ll interpret how it all falls into my Great Earth Shift theory and practice.
Links to my prior Time Monk and other interviews can be found on Lada Ray YouTube channel : Playlist Interviews.
By reader demand, much more about the EARTH SHIFT will be revealed in upcoming WEBINARS!
LESS THAN A WEEK TO THE LAUNCH OF THE THREE EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR SERIES!
To answer some frequently asked reader questions:
anthonyra82Counting the days until June 8-10 🙂
BarbaraIf we don’t sign up for the webinar in person we can still purchase the video a day or two afterward, correct? I want to make extra sure about that. I take it the webinar is for people who want to ask questions, but if we can’t make the webinar we can still buy it and be privy to all the information soon after. ?
Lada Ray Correct, Barbara. I wanted to make it as easy as possible for everyone. You can purchase any time at the same price and you’ll be directed to the webinar page automatically.
P.S. Those who pre-purchase now don’t necessarily have questions to ask – we have some who don’t. With these webinars, everyone’s welcome to participate at their own pace. This knowledge will serve you well for years to come.
First in the series: ESW2: INVERTED COLLAPSE RELEASE DATE: JUNE 9, 2017.
If you think you’ve heard it before, think again – I guarantee that, like much of what you hear from me, it will be new, revealing and probably surprising. Hang on to your chair, because the knowledge you’ll gain may NOT be something you have come to believe, based on your Western upbringing and conditioning, as well as on all the mainstream and alternative information that is available. But I guarantee that it is this knowledge that will truly open your eyes, eliminate confusion and make you see clearer into your future!
Ask yourself, why so many gurus’ predictions were wrong? Or was it the timing that was wrong? If you still believe the picture painted for you by the alternative sources, then why are you experiencing such confusion about the future?
Also ask yourself, in three + years many of you have been with me and FuturisTrendcast, how good did you find my predictions and truth-telling track record?

TRUMP’S STRAITJACKET IN ACTION
This interview corroborates with predictions I made in Webinar1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? and ESR16 regarding Trump. These predictions were first made in Late October 2016 – before US Elections – and expanded and refined in the beginning of February 2017. Trump, as I’ve called it, has been put in a ‘straitjacket’ by what some call the ‘Deep State’ and I prefer to refer to as the ‘Dark State.’ Complete Trump presidency predictions in Webinar1.
(Thanks to 1EarthUnited for the link!)
Many predictions made in the beginning of February 2017 have already come true, and continue coming true.
THE NEW SERIES OF THREE LIFE-CHANGING WEBINARS
IS LADA RAY’S EVENT OF THE YEAR
1st in the series Earth Shift Webinar 2 Inverted Collapse: RELEASE JUNE 9-10, 2017!
Dear friends, summer vacation time is approaching. I know how all of you love having fun and going away to relax and unwind.
But do you know what I also know? On average humans spend 10 times more time planning their vacation than planning their future. Meanwhile, a clear-minded knowledge and future planning is more important than ever… so you can continue enjoying your future vacations!
Planet Earth is going through a tectonic shift of timelines, consciousness and reality. There is no corner of the world that will not be touched by The Great Earth Shift as it unfolds in front of our very eyes. One day we’ll wake up and fail to recognize the world around us. Unless we are prepared.
At this time, like never before, one has to plan for the future. If we have a clear idea of what our near and far future really holds, we have a much better chance of coming out of the Earth Shift not only unscathed, but perhaps as big winners, won’t you agree? By being prepared and holding the true knowledge, you can also help those around you when they most need help.
Many of you who have been following me for a while are familiar with my futurist predictions and my accuracy track record. Many of you are also familiar with my BOOKS, EARTH SHIFT THEORIES, QUANTUM/GEO CALIBRATIONS, EARTH SHIFT REPORTS and the TRUMP EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR.
However, I can assure you that I’ve only scratched the surface of everything I know and foresee. Since 2016 I’ve been planning this new series of 3 exclusive EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS. They will reveal much more than ever before of my theories, futurist trendcasts and predictions.
These three EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS are my best learning courses yet, coupled with more important predictions and revelations than ever before. An investment in them is an investment in true knowledge that will serve you well for years to come — knowledge you won’t find anywhere else!
Pre-order each webinar individually or subscribe to 3 Webinar Series!
First in the 2017 series is ESW2: INVERTED COLLAPSE — release: June 8-10, 2017. Subsequent webinars will be released monthly.

The Philippines president Duterte had to cut short his visit to Moscow due to the Marawi ISIS attack. During his talk to Vladimir Putin Duterte asked for a ‘soft loan’ to purchase modern Russian arms needed to confront ISIS terrorism in his country. He must ask Russia for urgent help, Duterte said, after US canceled his arms order.
Remember what Duterte called Obama last year (I won’t repeat it here) and with what defiance and anger he spoke of the US? Duterte became famous after he courageously stood up to the pressure from Obama and USA.
On video below, pay attention at how Duterte talks to Putin – what a contrast!
Also notice Putin’s expressions when he listens to Duterte asking for arms. It’s clear that Putin has to make a snap decision on something as important as giving arms to a leader of a potentially very volatile country.
I’m sure Russian intelligence has given Putin a serious run-down on what is really happening in the Philippines. But Putin has to take into account the entire situation in the whole region, weigh the risks of the balance of power, relations and trade, as well as whether Duterte, with his tough talk, can be trusted. We are seeing on camera a rare glimpse of how Putin’s mind works and how he makes decisions. Usually this process happens more behind the scenes, but here, due to the extreme urgency of the situation, it happens in real time.
Duterte was at the Beijing One Belt, One Road Forum last week. At the forum the 29 invited leaders mingled while China presented its grand plan for the brave new world through the New Silk Road. Only 2 leaders showed up from the EU – and very telling two: the Greek and Czech presidents, both unabashedly pro-Russian. USA was conspicuously missing.
At the forum Xi Jinping made it an absolute point to always be seen together or next to Putin. (The Chinese Belt and Road Summit is an event worthy of a separate talk – I’ll address it in one of the upcoming webinars and in my upcoming interview – stay tuned for announcement).
Duterte also boasted that he was seated at Chinese president’s dinner next to Putin.
However, not all is smooth between China and the Philippines. It seems some forces are trying to stir trouble between the two. It is also possible that there is a manipulation to steer Russia to get involved in the Asian disputes.
My advise to Russia – to be very, very careful. It will take a very delicate balancing game to keep the volatile situation in the region under control. A few wrong moves from various parties involved (S. and N. Korea, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan the Philippines and the interfering US) and South-east Asia could explode like a powder keg. All this has to be weighed when making decisions. I have nothing but confidence for Putin and his team.
This is the Time of Russia, and any moves made by Russia at this time will ultimately bring positive results to the Great Balancer and to the world. We’ll discuss how this works in upcoming Earth Shift Webinars 2 and 4.
‘They want me to fight China. It’s gonna be a massacre!’ – Duterte to RT (FULL INTERVIEW)
Duterte: ‘Trump is my friend, but West is just double talk. I want more ties with Russia & China’
During this period of the Great Earth Shift the entire planet is experiencing tectonic changes and important events. The never before seen situations, dire emergencies and delicate snap decisions will be more and more common. In such circumstances, whether one is a leader or a country or an ordinary citizen, we’ll be required to make big yet untested decisions fast.

Some important follow-ups to my latest: Heil Poroshenko! Ukraine junta bans Russian SM, prepares to ban Russian Orthodox Church.
First, an update and some rare good news from Ukraine! Under the pressure from the international community and from Ukraine’s own citizens, for now the Ukraine Rada did not pass the proposed Russian Orthodox Church ban. It has been widely warned that such ban would generate an all-out religious war in Ukraine.
The pressure on Ukraine not to adopt such shameful and anti-democratic law has been very tough. Even the Pope got involved, strongly advising against it. However, it’s early to rejoice. They will continue coming after the Russian churches and after everything Russian for as long at this junta is in power. We have seen this dance and song before, say, in the renaming of the streets and cities in Ukraine. Or take the visa regime with Russia – it has been proven that they’ll endanger their own economy by doing it, yet the Bloody Pastor Turchinov and others are back at it full force. They will keep aggressively coming at it, until the public and/or lawmakers cave in.
The aggressive ukro-nazi element has been allowed to proliferate and grow like cancer in Ukraine for 25 years. We are seeing the sorry results of Ukraine’s 25 year ‘independence’ from Russia and common sense.
The only way to reign in this genocidal fascist dictatorship in Ukraine is for Russia and for us, the sane people of the world, to keep constant pressure on their foreign sponsors, who in turn will have no choice but to pressure the Kiev junta and Poroshenko to keep the Nazi element in check. To remind everyone, the main sponsors and supporters of the Kiev junta and ukro-nazis are: USA, Canada, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Romania, and Brussels/EU as a whole.
*** On another note, Russia has filed a complaint against Ukraine with WTO. If WTO does not fine Ukraine for the continuing border, business and trade violations, Russia may institute a visa regime and new economic sanctions against Ukraine. Russia for years has been awfully lenient towards Ukraine. But if Kiev junta continues aggressive anti-Russian stance, emboldened by the support of the West, Russia may respond in like.
Why people leave a country; How the Chi and Life force work; The People-Bridges
I know exactly how your wife feels and I know lots of people who thank the universe every day they moved out of Ukraine, and also those who are trying to get their elderly relatives out of there.
I fully understand why people want to leave. But therein lies the crux of the problem. As the higher calibrated, more educated, more active and higher IQ people continue their exodus (many of us had left years ago), they also withdraw their life force. When not enough smart and positive people are available to moderate the energy of such a place, it first stagnates, and then falls to the dark side. As a result, such country falls more and more into (forgive me) the imbecility we are observing in Ukraine today.
To understand how it works refer to my article Mass Migration: What Happens if a Country Gains or Loses its Life Force? (US, EU, Russia, China, Ukraine, Syria).
The above notwithstanding, those of us who have left Ukraine, Russia, or any other country in order to live in the West are playing a very important and indispensable role of being the People-Bridges. We bridge different cultures, foster mutual understanding and benevolence, and we seed the Western collective consciousness with alternative information.
Can Israel take over Ukraine?
Nope. Russia won’t let that happen. I already answered this question and made a full prediction on that in ESR6 Ukraine: New Kazarian Khaganate and American Zionism. In the same ESR6 I answer various questions about Israel and Zionism. In it I don’t proliferate the popular half-truths nor simplified view of the issue, and I don’t do blame game or fear mongering. I reveal some historic truths, addressing the most convoluted forbidden history moments and controversial issues. A must read for those who are serious about understanding the truth.
That said, I for one would welcome any infusion into Ukraine of higher Chi from anyone. Russians are working with everyone, including Israel, to influence the Kiev junta from without. Israel, as always, is playing a double game, and it’s all very complicated. But Putin and his team are exceptional chess players. And again, every little bit of the restraining higher Chi influence from abroad helps.
Will it get worse in Ukraine before it gets better?
This, unfortunately, is the reality we are seeing. My original prediction has been that between 2016 and 2018 Ukraine will begin turning back towards Russia, but only after its economy is fully destroyed. We are now seeing the brutal process of a wholesale economic and social destruction.
And the changing timeline…
However, there has been a slight shift in the timeline reality due to Kiev junta holding on to power for dear life and due to the US/EU establishment and shadow forces continuing its support.
Due to this slight shift, there can be some delay in Ukraine’s shift towards Russia, albeit a slight one. Moreover, there can be gradual shift of various parts of Ukraine. However, I still DO NOT see the part by part shift outcome. I see most or all of Ukraine shifting at once.
If Ukraine still stagnates under Kiev junta till the end of 2018, there will be a significant change as of the end of 2018 – beginning of 2019, when Russia cancels the gas transit deal with Ukraine and after Nord Stream 2 has been built.
But as a result of the shifted timeline, Russia will not want to drag the dead body of Ukraine (sorry, however cruel it may sound) on her shoulders. Russia will be looking for cooperative solutions with other countries.
Neither would Russia ever invade Ukraine – per my original 2014 prediction. Or let’s just say, Russia would only send troops to Ukraine based on the UN, or similar, mandate. And even then – don’t think so. This prediction for the next 2-3 years only. After that a lot will change in the world.
I’ve written about the shifting timelines and the Mandela Effect in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18: LADA RAY FRENCH ELECTION PREDICTIONS: LE PEN – MACRON FACE-OFF & WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE EU.
And now we’ve come full circle. The change in Ukraine has to come from within. This has to be accompanied by Russian support and US/EU withdrawal. So far, this is not happening fast enough. But the situation may change very quickly in the next year or so. Stay tuned!
It has been clearly shown that the people are awakening, as we’ve seen during the Immortal Regiment march of May 9, 2017. In Kiev alone 60,000 people came out and all over Ukraine, anywhere between 600, 000 and a million.

A very admirable sentiment from #POTUS Donald Trump that peace needs to be made between Russia /Donbass and Ukraine. I couldn’t agree more. Looks like Trump is on his way to make good on his campaign intention, and according to my predictions here and also here.
USA wants to slowly and secretly distance itself from Ukraine, while attempting to save face. What a bummer for Obama and his handlers, after all their efforts to the contrary!
This alone was enough to cause a major Internet storm. But it gets better!
Notice one crucial difference between two photos, the difference that made the Kiev junta very upset?
Is it that Trump thought it was too much trouble to get up for Ukraine FM Klimkin? Is Klimkin bending, as if receiving orders from the big boss?
Feel the difference…
WHY TRUMP MET WITH LAVROV
Foreign Ministries of Russia and US are preparing the first meeting between Trump and Putin, which most likely will take place during the upcoming G20 in Germany. Several countries competed to host the first Trump – Putin meeting, including Finland, Germany and Austria. Obama admin purposely left much baggage behind in Russia-US relations so to complicate as much as possible the first steps of Trump admin. That baggage first needs to be sorted out, before the meeting can take place.
This is one of the reasons Angela Merkel flew to Sochi to see Putin on May 2, after she saw Trump: to sort through the past, get a firm confirmation that the historic meeting will indeed take place and see if she could get more indication on its terms.
Merkel also came to bring to Putin that proverbial olive branch. After all, she will stand for re-election later this year. In her mind it’s time to mend relations with Russia, but not because she means it. No – in order to ensure that the new US and EU bogeyman, ‘the Russian hackers,’ won’t ‘interfere’ in German elections.
Following Tillerson Moscow visit, Lavrov was in DC also to begin shaping up the terms and tone of the US-Russia relations for the upcoming Trump years. This, of course, includes Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Ukraine.
Lately, US has been excluded from various global decisions and forums, such as the Minsk forum on Ukraine or the Astana forum on Syria and Middle East. The latest is the exclusion of the US from the big China summit.
Russia has offered US some face-saving good deals on participation in Syria, albeit a very controlled participation. US is also concerned that Russian influence in Afghanistan and Iraq is increasing, while USA’s is waning. That has also factored into negotiations. As I predicted all along, per the Kissinger Plan, in exchange, US will need to slowly withdraw from Ukraine, Moldova and some other Eurasian areas (learn all about it in Lada Ray Webinar below!).
Recommended Webinar, ESR and articles to gain a full picture and to familiarize yourself with Lada Ray predictions:
WHY TRUMP MET WITH UKRAINE’S KLIMKIN
The entire Kiev junta, including Poroshenko, MSM, high level officials and politicians rooted for Hillary and mocked Trump during his campaign. Poroshenko personally initiated a scandal as a result of which Trump had to fire his campaign manager last August. After Trump won, Poroshenko and entire Kiev establishment promptly flip-flopped and began kissing Trump’s behind. I am NOT exaggerating – if anything, I am toning it down!
The latest intel: Washington lobbyists were paid $400,000 to make sure Klimkin is allowed in Trump’s presence. The audience lasted 6 minutes. During it, Trump merely uttered that ‘Minsk agreements have to be fulfilled and Ukraine has to make up with neighbors.’ That was the end of the meeting.
P.S. Latest: the $400,000 lobbyist fee was put up for Ukraine by… Canada.
So, why did Trump agree to receive Klimkin? It’s 2-fold:
1. To appease Russia-hating MSM, hawks in Congress and all over US, who’d immediately jump on it: why is he talking to Lavrov, but not to Ukraine FM?
2. To deliver the message, understood by those who need to understand it: US is preparing to disengage from Ukraine. And if Kiev doesn’t want to be left entirely in the cold, it needs to toe the line and fulfil the unfulfillable Minsk agreements.
In fact, a proof of the slow unraveling of the disastrous US – Ukraine entanglement is already here: US Congress voted to slash American financing of Ukraine, including military financing, by 70%. As a special provision, the document stipulates that whatever financing will still be provided, it cannot be used to finance the regiment Azov and other ukro-nazi ragiments and battalions. The slow squeezing of the hard-core Ukraine Nazis and radicals has begun.
This is only the beginning – more to come between 2017 and 2018!

US media circus = boy who cried wolf
‘Russians tricked us!’ — It must be the NEW version of ‘Russians are coming!’
And.. karma is a bitch
Video: US media complains they had to get their images of the first Trump – Lavrov meeting from the Russian sources.
If the US media had half a brain, I’d say, ‘Hint dears, you have no one else to blame but yourselves.’ But they won’t get it, so no point in wasting my breath.
US media that attacked #Trump left and right has only itself to blame for not being allowed into #Lavrov – Trump closed-door meeting. Did they really think it would be forgotten?
There is another thing I’ve noticed. When Tillerson came to Moscow to talk to Lavrov a couple of weeks back, the US ‘journalists’ were tripping over themselves and yelling out stupid questions into Lavrov’s ear, not letting two foreign chiefs talk. This prompted such consummate professional as Lavrov to snap and tell them to ‘mind their manners.’ Who taught you your manners, asked Lavrov, to Tillerson’s embarrassed silence.
The same circus continued when Lavrov came to DC. During a joint press appearance, US ‘journalists’ yelled out more dumb questions, while Tillerson was still speaking, thus breaking protocol.
US media = Disruptive mob? Paid provocateurs? Malicious juveniles? I’m afraid, all of the above. They’ve been trained to be this way by the Western neo-liberal globalist establisment.
In other words, the behavior and attitude of the US MSM on all occasions has been distasteful, to say the least… I can think of many more adjectives, but just like Lavrov, being my usual diplomatic self, I’ll refrain from using them. Feel free to add your own – whichever apply.
Is it any wonder these clowns weren’t allowed into Trump-Lavrov meeting?

MUCH MORE ABOUT TRUMP, RUSSIA & EU HERE:
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 18 Lada Ray French Election Predictions: Le Pen, Macron, the future of France and EU
It wasn’t my first choice to bring up such subject before the weekend. But Macedonia is boiling over. I believe important and volatile events are taking place in the countries that used to be parts of the former Yugoslavia, and people should know about them. My forecast is that the situation in the Balkans will continue heating up.
There are objective reasons for that: 1. A large number of people in the former Yugoslavia feel duped and they want to right the historic wrongs that were forced on them by the West; 2. The Balkans have historically been a very volatile and controversial region; it’ll continue being so during this Earth Shift.
The Balkans and former Yugoslavia are usually overlooked, silenced or completely misrepresented in the West; therefore I feel the need to explain what is happening.
A did a video about attempted color revolution in Macedonia – see more at the bottom. It took place (oh, surprise!) when then president of Macedonia Gruevski was visiting Russia and talking cooperation with Putin. The driving force of the color revolution was the Muslim Albanian minority. Notably, some of the color revolution participants resided in Macedonia, but, per reports, thousands of trained foreign agents were infiltrated through the Kosovo and Albania border. As a consequence, then president of Macedonia resigned – apparently after blackmail and life threats. New government was elected, which gave more seats to Albanians and fewer to the core ethnicities of Macedonians and Serbs, who are Orthodox Christians. The new government has been very subdued and ‘suddenly’ all talk of any cooperation with Russia stopped.
It has to be noted that Russia is a natural trade and cultural partner for Macedonia, as well as neighboring Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and other countries of the region. There is profound and well-cherished cultural, linguistic and religious closeness. (As a side note: remember, I did a couple of articles on FT about Bulgaria and Slovenia and how they feel about Russia). There is a strong mutual affinity between Russia and all of these countries. Same goes for Greece and Cyprus. The only problem, Russia does not share a border with the Balkans region.
Because there is such mutual affinity and strong desire to be closer to Russia, the West (US/EU) has made it its mission to sabotage any such attempts and has done absolutely everything in their power to prevent meaningful and productive relations between Russia and the Balkans. But the pull remains strong. Therefore, US/EU continue sabotaging it every step of the way.
***Some corrections to the map of the Balkans above – the map was found on the internet. Slovenia was also a part of Yugoslavia, it is technically a part of the Balkans, and although Catholic, certainly an integral part of the South-Slavic world. Slovenia’s break-up with Serbia in the ’90s was the only peaceful and orderly, except Macedonia. Also, Greece and the European part of Turkey are part of the Balkans.
Macedonia borders both Albania and the illegally torn from Serbia Kosovo. Kosovo is a historic, ancestral Serbian land. However, in the past 50-100 years or so, slowly, more and more Albanians seeped across the border and settled in Kosovo, until they constituted a large minority, and after having unseated most native Serbs, a majority. This allowed Albanians to overtake Kosovo and claim it as their land.
Kosovo Albanians have been used in this conflict as patsies and as a thorn in Serbia’s side (much like today’s ukro-nazi Ukraine has been designed to be a thorn in Russia’s side). By extension, the Kosovo terrorism threat and instability also hurts Macedonia and Montenegro. Every time either of the three former Yogoslav remnants tries to ‘misbehave’ such as get closer to Russia, the strings are pulled and a violent coup, color revolution, civil war, economic/political blackmail and threats against leaders take place.
The driving force behind Kosovo being torn from Serbia and recognized as independent state were Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton. Along with them – the usual suspects, such as senator McCain and the majority of both democrats and republicans in the USA. EU wasn’t far behind. In fact, everything was done by the collective West to create permanent hostility and embed a profoundly unresolved conflict in the region. All this was necessary to weaken Serbia, and by extension, Russia.
During the Yugoslav wars of the ’90s, taking advantage of the fact that Russia was at her weakest and Serbia committed a lot of errors, EU and US broke up Yugoslavia, but didn’t stop at that. They wanted to break up what was left of core Serbia as well. They largely succeeded: first the war crimes committed against Serbs were silenced and Serbian government and population were vilified. Then Kosovo was declared an independent state, immediately recognized by EU and US, but still unrecognized by many countries, including Russia and Serbia. Later in 2006, Chernogoria (Montenegro) was also torn away from the weakened Serbia.
Macedonia, one of the fall-out tiny republics formed in 1993 as a result of the breakup of Yugoslavia and the dismemberment of Serbia, is ethnically, linguistically and culturally an Orthodox, Slavic country, very close to both Serbs and Bulgarians.
We are now observing what happens to a small place such as Macedonia, which isn’t designed to function as a separate state. Every small piece torn from the whole weakens the whole along with all of the breakaway parts. Macedonians, who were lured away from Serbia by the promise of a wonderful life as part of the EU (which, incidentally, never happened) are now reaping the consequences of a bad decision.
In the past 20-30 years the Albanian minority in the country grew from single digits to 25-30 percent. When this minority became large enough, it began demanding more and more political power. Lately, the Albanian minority demanded the post of the head of the government. The current president, whose last name is Ivanov (can’t get any more Russian/Slavic) refused to cave in to Albanians’ pressure.
You may ask, what pressure if they are a minority? The problem is, as I explained above, Albanians enjoy a wholesale support of Brussels, Merkel and US. This emboldens them to demand more than they should. They know that the entire force of the EU/USA/NATO is behind them. This, sadly, yet again reminds me of the behavior of the Kiev junta, who go around EU and US demanding more sanctions, tough rhetoric against and public spanking of Russia – and they get indulged by both EU and US! Why? Because you’ve got to throw the bones to your chosen agents so they continue performing the dirty work.
Much like the Kiev junta against Russia, Crimea and Donbass, Kosovo and Albanians are used by the EU and US as a ram in the Balkans. Kosovo is a bonified terrorist state, specializing in drug, weapons and organ trafficking. Kosovo houses Camp Bondsteel, the USA’s largest military base abroad. It also specializes in training radical Islamists for terrorist acts in Europe.
Albanians, some of whom have fallen under the influence of radical Islamists and ISIS, are dangled in front of Macedonian and other governments in the region as a constant threat, should they make one wrong move. The sad fact is, Macedonians have become hostages in their own country.
The present crisis arose when ethnic Albanian was elected as speaker of the parliament, bypassing all legal procedures. It appears the votes were rigged and/or not counted. It was so obvious that the revolution began and people stormed the parliament. As of now, Macedonian parliament is occupied by protesters.
April 28, 2017, Macedonian parliament stormed by protesters:
The illegality of his election notwithstanding, EU rushed to recognize the Albanian speaker of Macedonian parliament; EU’s FM Federica Mogherini came out immediately in his support. The EU also expressed an ‘outrage’ over the protesters actions. Where was EU’s outrage when the 2014 bloody color revolution and parliament storming took place in Ukraine?
Macedonia has been boiling over for months. Similar mass protests have been happening in Montenegro. Serbia is also balancing on the brink. All of these small countries are being dragged into the EU and NATO, against the will of their populations. In fact, these countries present no value to either the EU or NATO. There is no big economy or strategic assets to be had there. The only asset is the natural affinity with Russia. In the minds of the dark forces ruling the West, this ancient affinity and this ancestral memory must be destroyed at all cost. What is happening in the Balkans is the mirror image of the Russia-Ukraine situation, albeit on a smaller scale.
The breakup of Yugoslavia was a terrible mistake. It’s much easier to destroy several small countries than one large. The people are discovering this the hard way. So far meek and subtle, I detect an underlying desire of some of the former Yugoslavia countries to re-unite. There is also a desire to be closer to Russia; after all, some in the Balkans consider Russia their Mother.

Due to a broad-range international consequences of Trump’s attacks against Shairat Airforce Base in Syria, for the rest of this week I am publishing a series of my new articles related to the Gordian Knot of entangled relations between the following players:
US / Trump / Tillerson
Syria / Assad
China / Xi
Russia / Putin / Lavrov
I want to again emphasize that the world is going through a giant tectonic shift on all levels of consciousness and everyday existence of mankind. To describe this giant metamorphosis I coined the term THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
The first, fictional account of this multi-dimensional process and its possible consequences appeared in my 2012 novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. Although a fictional story, it gives you a glimpse into what is taking place on our planet, beyond the obvious.
As part of my EARTH SHIFT theory, I have defined the role of various global powers, most importantly, RUSSIA – THE GREAT BALANCER. The other geopolitical superpowers, geo locations and countries play their own roles in the composite structure of our world, and they have their own role to play in the Earth Shift – big or small. Some elements of my EARTH SHIFT theory and practice have been discussed in past EARTH SHIFT REPORTS and WEBINARS. Much more will be presented to you in future WEBINARS and non-fiction BOOKS on which I am presently working.
I’ll continue publishing free articles on FuturisTrendcast and free videos on LadaRayChannel. This is part one of the new series, following my recent #Trump and US #Syria Attack: Hate to Say I Told You So!
WAS TRUMP’S SYRIA ATTACK AN AFFRONT TO CHINA?
Of course, it was. It was a true humiliation to China and its leader Xi Jinping, who during the US attack against Syrian Shairat base was in Orlando to talk trade and relations improvement with Trump.
It is well-known that China recognizes Assad as legitimate leader of Syria and maintains that Syrian conflict can only be resolved via peaceful negotiations.
That very poorly executed US cruise missile strike may have even been rushed to coincide with the Xi’s visit. This partially may account for the sloppiness of the execution, when so many targets were missed.
Actually, it was an embarrassing for the US military strike, all things considered. Only 23 out 59 Tomahawk missiles landed within the base, most of them causing little damage. The rest of the Tomahawk missiles disappeared into thin air (were lost in transit or landed in the sea, if you believe the official line). Some hit peaceful villages, killing innocent civilians. Most damage was to relatively unimportant objects, such as canteen and old planes. The air strip and most structures are intact and jets are still flying. Syrian airforce base was back in operation shortly after the attack – another testament to the low effectiveness of the strike.
This tell us: 1. Tomahawk missiles aren’t very good. 2. It was a sloppy operation for two reasons: it was hastily put together and it wasn’t very well thought through.
But I will tell you tha tin my opinion it didn’t need to be thought through that well. The true plan for this strike, as well as the related false flag Idlib ‘sarin gas chemical attack’ was to sabotage any possible improvement in Russia-US relations.
I want to stress yet again something that perhaps not all are grasping. No matter how you look at it, the whole op had to be prepared well in advance. The Idlib chemical attack false flag; Trump’s straight jacket; intel on Syrian base, delivering, prepping, calibrating missiles – all this takes time and coordination. The entire complex op took some time to prepare, as pointed out in #Trump and US #Syria Attack.
You’ll ask where does China and Xi’s visit come into this? Very simple: Trump has a fixation over ‘showing China its place,’ ‘military escalation with China,’ and ‘taking jobs away from China.’ Listen to my Webinar follow up YT video: TRUMP’S WAR vs CHINA AND IRAN. RUSSIA NO LONGER US ENEMY? LadaRayWebinar1 Q3.
It seems Trump wanted to use the opportunity of Xi’s visit to show who the boss is and to send China a message. This was why the strike was a bit rushed – someone whated it to take place during Xi’s visit.
Since China’s position on Syria and Assad – coinciding with Russia’s – is well-known, a missile strike during Chinese President’s visit can only signify a disrespect of China. If you are receiving another power’s leader in your home, the least you can do is be a gracious host.
The US showed itself as not so gracious of a host (or guest) in the past. But there is a marked difference between what was happening in the past and what we’ve seen with Syria strike during Xi’s visit. The striking distinction is that in previous manifestations, such underhanded actions by the US were usually well-hidden and ingenious in their deviousness. When Kissinger and such were in charge of those devious designs, at least they were smart. What we see with the present situation is sloppiness, unprofessionalism and some sort of juvenile gloating.
Another interesting detail is a seeming lack of proper analysis and strategic calculation in Trump’s actions. At least one huge mistake made by Trump: two enemies were created in one fell swoop: Russia and China (I’m not even talking about Iran). Trying to play Russia against China, as the original Kissinger plan implied, was awfully devious, but smart. The Syria stunt wasn’t smart.
Of course, I have to immediately qualify this by reiterating what I’ve always maintained: Russia and Putin would never allow a hot WWIII to take place. This is one of the roles of the planetary GREAT BALANCER. Russia will do everything to calm the situation and take it out of the realm if the US cowboy hotheads and into the realm of diplomacy.
That said, Russia will make it absolutely clear that no further breach of Syrian air space, or any other illegal acts by US/West, will be tolerated. (At this very moment US Sec of State Rex Tillerson is meeting with Sergey Lavrov in Moscow – I’ll have a separate post about this meeting and what it means.)
Let’s refer again to LADA RAY WEBINAR: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM? where we have discussed the secret Kissinger plan proposed to Trump when he first took office in January, 2017.
According to this plan, Trump would have tried to entice Russia to distance from China and reduce Russia’s nuclear arsenals in exchange for several major concessions on USA’s part, including: 1. USA’s gradual distancing from Ukraine, with subsequent release of Ukraine from US/EU grip; 2. West’s recognition of Crimea; 3. Repeal of anti-Russian sanctions. 4. There may have been other minor perks, so to speak, such as Russia rejoining G7.
In the WEBINAR we did a full-spectrum analysis of the Kissinger plan. I explained how Russia would NOT fall for any of it. In the past, under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, Russia did fall for ‘US offers.’ It never ended well. I explained why Russia would never agree to any sort of new nuclear arsenal reduction treaty with US, why Russia didn’t really care about Crimea being recognized, and why Russia didn’t mind the sanctions. As a matter of fact, in my opinion, more sanctions would be even better, especially those of financial nature. This would spur Russia to finally deal with the imposed by the West in the ’90s predatory financial system.
In order to prove that he was right in wanting to get on a good foot with Russia, and to silence his critics, Trump needed some substantial international victory or two. In the WEBINAR I explained how Trump made crucial mistakes in international relations from the start. He trumpeted everywhere how he would exchange a nuclear arms reduction treaty for certain deals with Russia. He bragged about it publicly without first checking with Putin if this was something Russia would even consider. That was an unforgivable faux pas. I said Trump was inexperienced and it showed: “wet behind the ears’ comes to mind. Although, I have to say that Obama wasn’t any better and neither would Hillary be.
Remember that famous secret phone call between Putin and Trump? In essence Trump’s inappropriate public assumptions made Putin teach him what to do and what not to do in international relations. He made Putin tell him WHAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN.
As those of you who listened to the WEBINAR recall, I explained that Trump was used to making deals and that he thought that he would just ride in on his white horse, start making deals left a right and the whole world would be his.
Unfortunately for Trump, Putin is way out of his league. As you know, in the WEBINAR I concluded that Trump really had absolutely nothing to offer Russia. None of the offers (and we discussed them all in detail), gave anything to Russia that Russia truly needed, or wanted enough to sacrifice her strategic interests.
As a side note: sometimes one has to wonder if Trump is just a big child. As a matter of fact, the severe infantilization syndrome has become a common trait of the US and Western politics. Just look at the likes of the UK’s FM Boris Johnson. It’s worrying that so many weapons of mass destruction, global economic and financial instruments are concentrated in the hands of the ‘bipolar teenagers.’
Back to Trump-Putin phone call: Alas, it’s been all downhill since that conversation between Putin and Trump. It seems Trump has decided that since Russia won’t give him what he wanted, namely a great victory and an opportunity to look good while riding into the Capitol on that proverbial white horse, he’d make Russia pay.
Of course, this coincided with the gradual tightening of that proverbial ‘Trump’s straight jacket.’ The result is Trump’s / US Syria Attack and new escalation.
No, US strike was not done exclusively or specifically as a message for China, as some suggested. However, it was a meaningful coincidence that Xi happened to visit the US at that moment.
The complex op was planned well in advance, in order to prevent Russia-US relations improvement and to sabotage the pre-announced potential meeting between Putin and Trump, which was initially planned for April or May. After what happened in Syria, the Putin-Trump meeting is likely to be postponed.
Meanwhile, the Chinese President Xi’s visit to Florida was a last minute surprise, agreed upon very shortly before it happened.
Yes, US Tomahawk strike was rushed just a little to be timed to additionally humiliate Chinese leader. But that was a cherry on the cake. The real underlying reason was to re-create and worsen the rift between Russia and US (and also between Russia and UK and Russia and EU), never allowing it to heal.
Did Trump succeed in ‘putting China in its place?’ No, not really. Xi and China aren’t stupid and they’ve made their conclusions. All he accomplished is pushing China even closer to Russia. This, if you recall our discussions, is the opposite of the mega-goal of the Kissinger Plan.
Did the main goal of keeping and worsening the rift between Russia and US (incl. EU and UK) succeed? Only partially, and I can confidently predict that Russia/ Putin /Lavrov will make sure it doesn’t stick.
Did the additional goal of maintaining the rift between Russia and EU and imposing new sanctions succeed? Not at all. As a matter of fact, during G7 EU has said NO to more sanctions. If anything, a rift between US and European allies has solidified.

I was actually planning to publish a completely different post. But we have breaking news that can’t wait: US attack against Syria.
Yep, hate to say I told you so since October 2016, or BEFORE US Elections, and then continued reiterating after. Should have listened to me…
CONFESSION: Granted, most of my followers and so many others who listen to me were so excited and had such high hopes for Trump that I didn’t have the heart to tell you the whole story – that most hopes, if any, will never materialize.
Even the relatively moderate amount of disclosures I made triggered a certain ‘kill the messenger’ effect. I don’t need psychic attacks, cold shoulder and disbelief thrown at me (affects me terribly as a highly advanced empath) simply because I am trying to help and enlighten people. So, I spoonfed the truth to you all. Now that most of those who had stars in their eyes have seen the reality, I’ll tell you more going forward. Some of it today and some in future webinars and books.
I received a number of comments and emails from concerned followers. Here are a few:
Nancy C/SeattleI don’t understand Trump’s authorization for US military strikes against Syria’s military base earlier today. Surely Trump knows the gas attack on civilians was not in Assad’s best interests and is clearly a false flag?
Nemo1024 Newsflash: Trump seems to have been subverted. US launched an attack on the sovereign state of Syria using a false flag pretext and before any investigations into it could be conducted. Syrian airbase that was specifically fighting isis was targeted. 3 Syrian soldiers killed, as well as 2 civilians from a nearby village. Isis used this diversion to launch an offensive on Palmyra.
Nemo1024 Important citation: https://www.rt.com/news/383837-russia-syria-flight-safety/ “Without bothering to investigate anything, the US went forward with a demonstration of force, a military confrontation with a country that is fighting international terrorism,” Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement reads. “Obviously, the cruise missile attack was prepared beforehand. Any expert can tell that the decision to strike was made in Washington before the events in Idlib, which were used as a pretext for a demonstration.”
anthonyra82Dear Lada, The latest developments in Syria are very disturbing. I knew you said Trump would disappoint a lot of people but I could not imagine he would escalate tensions with Russia like this. As always your opinion and thoughts on this are greatly appreciated.
LADA RAY SAYS:
…and the penny drops
What we see here is a logical progression of what I predicted and warned about in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 16: US ELECTIONS & WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER and in LADA RAY WEBINAR 1: WILL TRUMP SURVIVE HIS FIRST TERM?
Let’s recall my predictions from the end of October-beginning of November 2016 (before elections), reiterated and expanded in December 2016 (TRUMP vs CLINTON: How Will Electors Vote on Dec. 19?), and then much expanded and added to in January 2017:
1. I said that Trump will be allowed to win, but that he would make deals, and that he already began making deals with the other side before elections. In other words, he will dilute (and he has!) his pre-election promises and agenda that has allowed him to win in the first place.
2. I said that Trump won’t be assassinated, as many predicted, in December or before he takes office in January, but rather it will be judged by those who pull the strings from the shadows that it is easier to make deals with him, keep him tied up with problems and subtly direct him into a narrow tunnel, where he has no choice other than to act in a specific way.
The new popular term is ‘deep state.’ LOL, so NWO and Bilderberg aren’t fancy enough any more (of course not – after I predicted in 2014 that NWO was in the process of collapsing in ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?). The new ‘deep state’ shiny conspiracy theorist toy has been found in order to distract from the reality and truth. Therefore, I do NOT use the term ‘deep state’ as it’s another gimmick to distract people from what’s important. But whatever, call it what you want. Those same people who are now parroting about ‘deep state’ were indecently enthusiastic about Trump last year. And?..
3. I expanded my predictions about Trump in my January Webinar. I termed what would happen to him once he took office: ‘a straight jacket.’ In other words, as I explained, he would be (and he already is and has been) severely restricted and sabotaged in any of his movements. He’s in a very restricted, tightly controlled and rigid corridor out of which he cannot escape.
And so, Trump has become a regular US president, in other words, a figurehead. In reality, he NEVER TOOK POWER!
4. I further said that they would throw him a bone or two, allowing him to appear as if he won in a few cases. But he won’t accomplish much.
5. I also said that he and his family will feel under threat and simply to survive he’ll have to toe the line. Security is the primary reason why Melania and Barron Trump have refused to move into the White House – as discussed in the WEBINAR.
6. In LADA RAY WEBINAR 1 we also discussed why Trump has to appease the military, CIA and Pentagon, giving them whatever they want. And what they want is: escalation of military conflict, pushing NATO to Russian borders, war in Syria and the Middle East in general. In short, the usual suspects.
7. In LADA RAY WEBINAR 1 I also predicted exactly how long Trump will be in the office. Which won’t be long! Check it out, if you haven’t yet – it’s a must listen and must know if you want to understand the logic of the events and what will happen next.
NEW LADA RAY ANALYSIS AND PREDICTIONS
Of course as predicted, Trump diluted his agenda until it became practically non-existent. This is especially true for international affairs.
UNFORTUNATELY, USA AND WEST IN GENERAL ONLY UNDERSTAND THE LANGUAGE OF FORCE AND FEAR. NO AMOUNT OF GOOD WILL AND COOPERATION RUSSIA TRIED TO EXTEND TO THE WEST EVER WORKED AND IT ALWAYS BACKFIRED.
IF THEY FEAR RETRIBUTION, THEY’LL RETREAT AND PRETEND THEY WANT TO NEGOTIATE. BUT NEVER OF THEIR OWN GOOD WILL.
THIS IS THE ESSENCE OF THE YANG, AGGRESSIVE WEST. IT HAS BEEN SO FOR CENTURIES AND IT WILL BE SO UNTIL CONSCIOUSNESS ON OUR PLANET RISES SUFFICIENTLY ABOVE THE FEAR, GREED AND LOWER CALIBRATIONS.
THEREFORE, TRUMP, US, EU & OTHER AGGRESSORS WILL ONLY DO THINGS PEACEFULLY IF RUSSIA IS STRONG ENOUGH TO FORCE THEM TO.
Here we have to get back to St. Petersburg Metro Bombing. Let’s combine the very telling timing of various events:
1. Russian and Belorussian fake anti-corruption ‘protests,’ (Russian protests organized by a known US/CIA agent Navalny);
2. Suspicious timing of the near-rift between Russia and Belarus with subsequent Putin-Lukashenko meeting in St. Petersburg and announcement of a unified energy grid;
3. Same day as Putin-Lukashenko meeting: St. Petersburg Metro attack takes place;
4. False flag Idlib chemical attack and conveniently blaming it on the usual scapegoat Assad – same timing as above;
5. Immediate follow-up to Idlib chemical attack : US/UK announce a joint attack on Syria, bypassing UNSC.
6. In this regard, yet again I am so sorry that Russian star diplomat, Vitaly Churkin, has passed. He was a force in the UN to be reckoned with. This likely would not have happened on his watch, or he would’ve made it very hard for it to happen!
Here we are back to what really happened to Churkin in New York. I know many of you expected me to write about it, but I didn’t feel like delving into all that disgusting negativity. I replied to a few of my private clients, whose worried emails I received back then. To be blunt, I said that Churkin didn’t die of a heart attack – he was murdered.
7. At the same time, Trump and key members of his team, including the ones he was forced to part with, are under investigation for ‘alleged ties with Russia.’ Add to that the investigation re. ‘alleged Russian hacking and interference in elections.’ And here is that ‘Trump’s straight jacket’ I have repeatedly predicted!
As we see from the events unfolding over the course of several months, this sequence of events has been prepared for a while. It was the shadow plan, whether Trump was privy to it or not. The preparation began BEFORE he took office.
As I gently predicted, those in the shadows allowed Trump and his supporters to think they’ve won, they allowed Russia and the sane part of the world to hope it would get better, but then the situation was manipulated in such a way so it would be back on track, and even worse than before. As I predicted back in 2016!
Broken promises and shuttered dreams are always worse.
Moreover, look at the devilish masterfulness of all these decoys! It coincided with Russia and Putin being distracted with Navalny protests and then almost immediately, with St. Petersburg Metro Bombing and Russia’s mourning. This has distracted Russian leadership and civilians.
You may not know this, but at the very same time Russian RosGvardia (National Guard) installation and troops were attacked in Astrakhan’ and N. Caucasus (I believe in Chechnya). At the same time, another bomb blew up near Rostov-on-Don school (thankfully, no casualties). Also at the same time Russian policemen found 3 explosive devices camouflaged as flashlights, meant to cause damage to police. Again, thankfully they didn’t explode. All the above happened within two short days.
Additional potential terrorist acts are being discovered and wannabe terrorists are being rounded up daily. They are almost exclusively either from Ukraine or from Central Asia. There are some from N. Caucasus.
All these fake protests, Metro bombing, potential and actual attacks against Russian RosGvardia and police installations keep Russian law enforcement and military on high alert internally. No one has been paying much attention to Syria due to all these events happening simultaneously.
And while these distractions were being generated, attack against Syria was being prepared. The Idlib chemical attack false flag and Syria bombing episode happened under the cover of terror attacks and fake protests in Russia.
Just to further expand on the devilish plan of those who really pull the strings. We already know that the grand plan is to keep Russia and Ukraine at loggerheads and continue to stoke the resentments, so that Russians and Ukrainians – two parts of the same people – would always hate each other. Hence so many terror traces leading to Ukraine.
But there is an equal interest in keeping suspicion and hatred between Russians and Central Asians. Putin made huge strides in improving relations with Central Asian ex-Soviet republics. HUGE strides – it’s actually day and night compared to the ’90s and 2000s. Moreover, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan are members of Eurasian Union, and some others are in talks. In this regard, who do you think has been arrested as one of the alleged St. Pete bombers? A Kyrgyz national with Russian passport, plus several more migrants from Central Asia. It’s very easy to dupe and seduce these poor Muslim migrants into doing illegal things: promise them lots of money, threaten their families they left behind in Central Asia, brainwash them with ISIS radical ideology, etc.
But even this is not all. While all this is happening, NATO (specifically UK and Germany) are amassing troops and tanks on Russian borders. My intel from Bulgaria (a NATO member, where peaceful people are very worried about the developments) says that up to 750,000 NATO troops and thousands of tanks have amassed near Russian borders!
At the same time, US is pushing NATO to grant Ukraine a ‘most favored nation outside NATO’ status. The next step is for NATO troops to invade Ukraine.
So much for the ‘beautiful’ dream of Trump… THEY YET AGAIN WANT TO START WWIII!
And only Russia, as always, stands in the way of the global catastrophe.
