Two Awesome Video Guides to Moscow! Москва (2018) – Обзор! #Russia2018

I’ve selected these video guides around Moscow from two of my fave YT travel video bloggers, a Brit Graham Phillips and an American Nadine. They are very different in style, but they both know their stuff. Both of these vids get my nod of approval. They possess the right spirit and energy, and they are something I can recommend. Check’em out.

1: Moscow – A Guide To! (2018) – Москва – (2018) – Обзор! By Graham Phillips, British journalist and truth-teller, famous for his eye-witness reports from Donbass front lines and credited with helping to awaken the English-speakers to the truth about the war in Donbass and Kiev junta’s real nature.

Graham bought an apartment in Odessa just before the Maidan and Kiev coup. After 2014 he was unable to return to the city, where his life would have been in danger from the junta regime and ukro-nazis descended in numbers on Odessa. He later got word that ukro-nazis took over his Odessa apartment, expropriated it in other words, in his absence. 

This video is a pleasant, lighthearted view of Moscow in the run-up to World Cup 2018.

2. what MOSCOW RUSSIA is REALLY like. From a young American’s (novice) perspective, but she means well and a nice footage. Also just to point out, Nadine made this film at the height of anti-Russian hysteria in the West, when everything was full of Russia-bashing, with distorted views throughout (well, except Futurist Trendcast and a few other good publications, of course). This in itself deserves respect.

新年快乐 / 新年快樂 (Xīnnián kuàilè)

For Russians the biggest annual holiday is the New Year. I have done big posts for previous New Years, where I gave recommendations for various New Year’s films, posted holiday music, beautiful images and videos, as well as gave the history and lore of the Winter Holidays. In the end of this post you’ll see the links to my past articles. This time, on the light holiday note I want to share with you some of Russian New Year / Christmas pics and traditions.

So you know, in Russia that well-known magical guy who gives out presents is called ‘Ded Moroz’ (Grandfather Frost). He is the equivalent of the Western Santa, but per Russians, he definitely, no question about it, resides in the ancient town of Veliky Ustyug, in northern Russia.

Here’s Putin, together with Ded Moroz at his official residence in Veliky Ustyug ~

Putin at Ded Moroz's home, Ustiug, Russia

Ded Moroz doesn’t come for Christmas, as in the West. He comes for New Year’s, which is (if I may say so myself) the right way of doing things. 😉

Why? You probably know by now that in fact the figure of Ded Moroz / Santa Claus / San Nickolas is a pagan spirit, or god, of winter. At one point it was absorbed by Western Christianity so that to entice more people to convert. Russian Orthodox Christians, shall we say, were a bit more honest about it.

Regardless of what he’s called and when he comes, we all love and welcome him, along with his companion, who in Russia is his beautiful granddaughter, Snegurochka (snow maiden). Snegurochka is certainly also an original Vedic nature goddess character.

dedMoroz-snegurochka

As seen on top pic, Russian Ded Moroz brings his gifts normally in a sleigh pulled by three horses, not by reindeer.

This is the northern Russian version of Ded Moroz, straight out of ancient legends — the true Vedic God of Winter. Look at his outfit (remember my Forbidden History articles on FuturisTrendcast?) Read the rest of this entry

The Virtuoso Music of GOOD Geopolitics: Spasskaya Tower Military Tattoo 2017

Kremlin, entering Red Square. Left: Spasskaya Tower; right: St. Basils

10th Spasskaya Tower Military Tattoo 2017 (Spasskaya Bashnya Festival’ Voennoi Musiki) opened on Moscow’s Red Square on August 26 and it’ll run till September 3. Participants are 30 military and ethnic musician bands, dance and performing groups from 14 countries and EU. Most of the performers are military, but not just. The visionary founder of the festival was the legendary Russian military conductor and composer Gen. Khalilov, who was the artistic director of the Aleksandrov Red Army Choir and who perished together with many of his choir in December 2016, when the plane was sabotaged over Black Sea, en route to Syria.

Participants in this year’s event include military musicians and performers from India, Egypt, Italy, Austria, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Turkey, Russia, and more. The group from Egypt is especially striking in their pharaoh-like outfits. Instead of the military, this time China sent the dancing Taoist monks — another amazing performance. The perma-fixture of the Spasskaya Tower Tattoo are Celtic dancers and pipers, who are international groups comprised of recognized in their field musicians. Some of the performances are truly unique and stunning — check out preview below!

Performances are held every day on Red Square, with the magical backdrop of St. Basils Cathedral and Kremlin’s main Spasskaya Tower. Incidentally, ‘Spasskaya Tower’ means ‘the savior-ess tower,’ and as you see, unlike in English, ‘tower’ (‘bashnya’) is feminine in Russian.

For the occasion, Red Square has been turned into a gigantic outdoor theater. But there are also free daily performances at Moscow train stations and parks. Included are also equestrian shows and competitions, including special competitions for children. Festival website has a schedule: http://kremlin-military-tattoo.ru/en/

Why is the Spasskaya Tower Military Tattoo significant? For one, these military musicians showcase their respective countries’ cultural best in a peaceful and productive competition. They also have a number of joint performances, where musicians from different countries play both Russian and international music, together. It requires a great talent and professionalism, not to mention willingness and cooperation, to be able to perform everything from classics to Western pop and Russian music with an orchestra consisting of Celtic pipes, drums and ethnic instruments.

In the previous post we have just seen Bull Fadjen resqued from bullfighting: #5D in action = #Love #Humanity #Compassion.

However improbable it sounds, this is yet another example of how 5D — 5th Dimension — can work. It is very fitting that Russia The Great Balancer shows the world through military music how to make love, not war.

The military of any country should exist strictly for protection, and to help those in need. To save and protect… not to attack. And apparently, also for some high class and uplifting entertainment.

This is the virtuoso music of reasonable and GOOD geopolitics.

Watch this preview, including the highlights of performances from different countries:

MY OUTRAGEOUS & FUN NEW YEAR STORIES

In my life, I happened to greet the New Year in some fun, memorable and outrageous ways, and in many fascinating places.

In the old days, back in Odessa and Moscow, we usually celebrated in a company of good friends. Being fashionably late was a sport of sorts; in our intellectual circles it was considered all in good fun. Just like in the perennially favorite Russian New Year’s film, The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath, I remember frantically trying to get to the party before the first stroke of midnight. We would catch a taxi – with difficulty – and urge the driver to go as fast as he can through the snowed-in city. Then we would storm into our friends’ apartment building clutching the requisite bottle of the Soviet Champagne (yep, it’s a famous brand) – our responsibility to bring to the party – as others nervously awaited our arrival with empty champagne flutes on hand. Then, at 11:59 sharp, as on TV the Spasskaya Tower Clock began chiming midnight, we would shout, ‘Quick, the glasses!’ and pour it just in time! New Year saved by the bell!

Later, there were many other New Years…

Once, in the 1980s, I greeted the New Year at the Tropicana Club in Havana, Cuba. Incidentally, the night club, full of hot and almost naked Cuban dancers, booze and buzz had absolutely no age restrictions. There were people of all ages, including some suspiciously young ones. But they were all divine dancers. I was invited by the club’s leading musician and manager, for whom I once translated in Russia. As a total non-drinker, I had to do some fancy footwork to enjoy the party, while avoiding drinking throughout the night.

The millennial New Year 2000 I happened to greet in Haifa, Israel. The terrorist acts were widely predicted and expected. When I was leaving to Israel before the holidays, my various Smith Barney clients begged me not to go, saying, ‘We don’t want to lose you!’ I assured them all that I would be safe. I was right, as usual. Even then, when I didn’t do it for a living, my predictions were spot on. 😉

How do you think we greeted New Year’s 2000 in Haifa? You won’t believe it, but my nice Jewish-Russian friends decided it would be fun to invite me to the Russian mega-bash at a fashionable Russian night club, called… Hollywood. The all-night entertainment program and I don’t know how-many-course holiday meal were loudly lavish, never-ending and borderline risque. We have to forgive them: they still ran on the Russian mentality of the crazy ’90s.

To be honest, I preferred to either catch up with my friends’ entire family at home or go exploring authentically Jewish and Muslim entertainment. Of course, I also did all the usual: Dead Sea, Arabic settlements, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Wailing Wall and the Holy Sepulchre.

The security on streets and airport was shocking. Let’s recall it was pre 9/11 and very bizarre to a Western eye. At the time it was very hard for an average person to understand how the entire country could constantly live under siege. The military with machine guns were everywhere you went in Jerusalem. Snipers were menacingly stationed on top of the Wailing Wall, full of Jewish worshippers in big black hats  – they did expect an attack that night.

When I was leaving Israel, a young and unsmiling airport security girl in military uniform unapologetically and unemotionally squeezed every tube of the healing Dead Sea scrubs and rare creams a bought from the famous beauty company Ahava. The whole check-up procedure lasted 45 minutes. But that was nothing compared to what they’d done to a little boy’s shoe. The Arabic family in the next aisle was told to remove their little son’s shoe. The shoe was ripped apart and tossed out to the cries of the boy. Turned out it was bomb free.

Later in the decade I understood why they did what they did.

Once in the US, for New Year’s I was stuck in our country home in the Berkshires, with only my darling kitty Lilechka for company (you see her on my pic in the top right corner of this blog). It was at the time that I began writing THE EARTH SHIFTER, while also finishing up STEPFORD, USA. Incidentally, the story of Stepford, as journalist Jade Snow gets stuck in the Berkshires alone, while her husband works in New York and abroad, is partially inspired by my own.

That New Year’s we had a totally crazy amount of snow. In town, the mountains of snow pushed from the road to the sidewalks reached second and even third floors of buildings. The sidewalks looked like narrow tunnels, dug between tall white walls. The snowfall began on the 29th and by the 30th our 1/4 mile-long driveway was covered in snow to my waist. Due to the holiday I simply could not get anyone to plow it. Meanwhile, some roads and bridges from New York were closed and my hubby was unable to drive back home. When they cleared the roads and he finally arrived on the night of Jan. 1, I saw his car’s dim lights on the other side of the massive white sheet. Thank god he brought a shovel. We dug simultaneously from both sides, illuminated only by the bright moon’s light, until we met in the middle. That night I fully understood how the WWII Russians and Western allies felt when they met on Elba in 1945.

At other times I greeted the New Year on Red Square, and on Times Square. My Times Square New Year has its own funny story, which I’ll tell another time. Those times I spent New Year on Red Square, and generally in Moscow, are some of my most treasured.

These are some of my New Year’s stories. And what are yours? Please share them in comments!

Enjoy Novogodnyaya – New Year’s Song from the Russian girl band Blestyaschie (Shining).

Watch BELOVED RUSSIAN NEW YEAR COMEDIES OF ALL TIME!

Genya, the main hero of the aforementioned The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath says: ‘We have a tradition. Every year, on December 31, my friends and I gather at the banya.’ (Banya is a traditional Russian wet sauna or steam room.) That fateful phrase began the incredible adventure, which became the beloved Russian film of all time.

Just like Genya and his friends, we also have a family tradition. For New Year’s we watch the nostalgic Russian movies. Today, I want to share with you the treasures of the golden era of Soviet/Russian cinematography, which we enjoy every year.

Of course, the staple: The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath. You can find it on Amazon, or at certain Russian stores. The original made in the 1970s has the incredible magic and freshness that contemporary films are simply unable to reproduce. After all these years, it hasn’t lost its mega-popularity. There is a contemporary Irony of Fate part 2, which is also not at all bad.

Unfortunately, Irony of Fate is unavailable on YouTube. But the good news, I found several other all-time New Year favorites! And the best thing, they are posted on YouTube for FREE and they come with English subs! All highly recommended by me!

NEW RUSSIAN FILMS JUST ADDED!

Some have already celebrated the New Year. Still 12/31/16 on my side of the pond.  As promised, FREE links to some of my fave Soviet/Russian New Year’s films. These are all 5 stars or above in my classification, in other words, world classics and eternal favorites (for more on my rating scale see Russian films page on FT – under RUSSIA tab above!)

NOTE! Most of these come with English subs. Because Mosfilm owns copyright, I cannot post them on FT. Please click on links below to watch on YouTube! These are unlisted, the links can only be obtained through watching a Russian version. This means Mosfilm frowns upon sharing. So, please be considerate – I am sharing only with my blog’s loyal readers, those who genuinely love Russia and are interested in her culture.

Carnival Night – Eng subs (Rus: Карнавальная ночь)

 5+ STARS. I love this 1956 musical romantic comedy. The songs from it – true for many Soviet films! – became instant hits and classics. Not a New Year goes by without ‘5 Minutes’ and ‘The Good Mood’ being played and replayed over and over on radio and TV.

Blurb: The bureaucratic and nosy new director of the Cultural Club Ogurtsov annoyingly interferes with the preparations of the event of the year, the New Year Carnival, by demanding bizarre and non-sensical changes to the program. The party organizers are in despair, but their determination to make the concert and carnival a success help them outwit Ogurtsov.

Song ‘5 MINUTES’

Gentlemen of Fortune (Rus: Джентльмены удачи)

5+ STARS – WOULD GLADLY GIVE IT 10+! 1971. Sorry, no Eng subs. One of my fave movies of all time, a comedy with cute songs, great acting and immortal lines that became instant sayings. It is one of my New Year’s films as the action takes place mainly around New Year’s, part in Moscow and part in hot Central Asia.

This is the story of a kindly principal of a Moscow kindergarten, who also happens to be a WWII hero, and who is a spitting image of a dangerous criminal. Taking advantage of this incredible likeness, Soviet police decides to infiltrate him into the gang to find the missing archeological treasures. As the gang retraces their steps to try to find the treasures hidden by their ring leader, while experiencing various adventures along the way, our kindly kindergarten teacher subtly, and unbeknownst to him, manages to change the psyche of the gang members, who slowly develop consciousness.

Джентльмены удачи Awesome Theme Song (Gentlemen of Fortune)

The Prisoner of Caucasus, or the New Shurik’s Adventures  – Eng subs (Rus: Кавказская пленница, или Новые приключения Шурика) Note, Mosfilm translates it as ‘The Caucasian Prisoner.’

5+ STARS. Awesome, cool, full of action Soviet comedy, peppered with satire and great lines that became instant classics and a part of Russian culture.

Blurb: An eccentric comedy about a student named Shurik, who goes to the Caucasus for work and meets local chief Saakhov, a man full of guile. Having been duped by conniving Saakhov, Shurik, with the assistance of three famous crooks, abducts the beautiful Nina. Now it’s up to Shurik to figure out where Nina is held prisoner and how to save her.

(This is for those who asked me about Putin’s reference to this film! You may recall Putin mentioned a line from this film in his recent annual Q&A – the one about who destroyed the 17th century chapel: ‘And the 17th century chapel we have also destroyed?’ In the comment section I’d explained what that line meant. Note, in the movie they are actually referring to the 14th century chapel. Please see full explanation in comments for Putin holds annual Q&A marathon (FULL VIDEO – Eng))

Operation Y and Shurik’s Other Adventures – Eng subs (Rus: Операция «Ы» и другие приключения Шурика

5+ STARS. The first film about the kindly and soft-hearted Shurik, who, when necessary, can show spunk and courage. The second film in the Shurik trilogy is The Prisoner of Caucasus. In this first instalment, Shurik is still a student; the film consists of 3 separate hilarious and educational episodes, describing his funny and inadvertently heroic adventures.

Blurb: A series of 3 short film comedies, where the protagonist, a student named Shurik: 1. reforms a malicious idler at a construction site; 2. frantically prepares for an exam, failing to notice his exam preparation buddy is actually a pretty girl; 3. with the help of a granny catches three burglars attempting to rob a warehouse.

And it’s 2017!

ADDED JAN. 1. 2017. These two Russian films are great to watch any time of year!

Ivan Vasilievich Changes Professions – with english subtitles  (Rus: Иван Васильевич меняет профессию). In the US it was released as ‘Ivan Vasilievich Back to the Future.’

5+ STARS – deserves all 10!

Hilarious and charming comedy, with elements of social satire, based on M. Bulgakov’s play “Ivan Vasilievich” about a time machine, which inadvertently transports the smart czar Ivan the Terrible into the twentieth century. At the same time, tsar Ivan’s look-alike, not very bright bureaucrat Bunsha, together with a shrewd thief George Miloslavsky, by mistake get transported  into the ancient Russia. The result is a cool and funny comedy of errors you’ll remember.

This is also the third installment of Shurik’s adventures, where Shurik is a researcher and inventor of the time machine.

.
.
The Diamond Arm  – with english subtitles (Rus: Бриллиантовая рука)
.

5+ STARS – deserves all the stars it can get! Cool, sweet, action packed, comical and satirical, with great songs and soundtrack, with lines that became instant hits and a part of the Russian culture. Funny and fun – don’t miss!

Blurb: An awkward and kind-hearted family man, Semyon Semyonovich, by mistake gets entangled in a major smuggling operation during his tour abroad. Being confused with the crook he travels with, he becomes the unwilling and unwitting courier, carrying precious jewels in his fake arm cast. Throughout the dangerous and elaborate cat a mouse game, which turns into a comedy of errors, Semyon Semyonovich manages to outsmart the international criminals.

What a treat! Renovated Kremlin reopens for tourists May 10

Moscow

In case you were planning a trip to Moscow, I thought you all might enjoy this fun piece about the Kremlin. We have talked lately about UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as Palmyra (Syria) and Odessa. The Moscow Kremlin is another one.

Kremlin, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is presently closed for tourists due to Victory Day – May 9, 2016 parade preparations. Since last year, a part of the Kremlin has been under massive renovations after the decision to demolish the so-called Building No. 14, which used to house presidential administration and which, according to specialists, didn’t represent any historic of architectural value. It was built in 1930’s, replacing the Small Nikolayevsky Palace, damaged during the revolution and demolished in 1929. The palace once served as Moscow residence for Emperor Nikolay II and his family.

The demolition of Building No. 14 opened up a boon for excited archeologists. The well-preserved foundation of the Nikolayevsky Palace was found underneath the structure. Historians and researchers were allowed access to its mysteries for the first time ever. Underneath that, archeologists discovered foundations of another dozen or so ancient buildings, as well as artefacts and relics dating back to 12th century Moscow.

kremlin-cathedral

Gold-domed medieval Kremlin cathedral

The new gardens now bloom in place of the huge building; previously blocked, a gorgeous view on the unique Kremlin cathedrals has opened up. Moreover, the new Kremlin tourist route has been opened, previously inaccessible due to presidential security. Tourists can now exit the Kremlin through its most famous and grandest Spasskaya Tower.

spasskaya-tower-2

Spasskaya Tower

The Kremlin reopens after Victory Day celebrations, on May 10.

Watch the video below, with the new look of the grandest Moscow landmark. At the end of video, you’ll see the new tourist route, which, as usual, starts by Alexander Gardens, through Kutafia Tower. But you can now exit through Spasskaya Tower, allowing direct entrance onto Red Square, right by St. Basil’s Cathedral. Spasskaya Tower exit was previously open only for state visits and officials. I’ll tell you, considering the enormous distances you need to cover around the Kremlin, your feet will thank you dearly for this shortcut; and your eyes, for the luxurious view of Red Square! 🙂

Moscow, Red Square

St. Basil’s, Red Square

Towards the end of video, notice the glass enclosures. These are entrances to Kremlin’s underground archeological digs. What new mysteries does this place hold? Many more, for sure…

Cherry on the cake: thought I’d include a video showcasing the legendary Kremlin Presidential Regiment. The Presidential Regiment is celebrating its 80th birthday. The role of this elite regiment is to guard President and Kremlin, as well as to perform Kremlin ceremonial duties. Chosen for their looks, its members are much more than just pretty faces. During the 1941 battle for Moscow, the entire Kremlin Regiment went into battle straight after the parade.

The Kremlin Presidential Regiment today. Some are chosen for looks, others, for their way with horses. Do check out the only woman serving in the Presidential Regiment.

New Exclusive Video Earth Shift Report 4. ALIEN TECHNOLOGY & NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS

ALIEN TECHNOLOGY AND NEW RUSSIAN WEAPONS 2

Intro by Lada Ray

The United States of America undoubtedly has the largest, best equipped and best financed army in the world. USA spends more on military than the rest of the world combined. USA seems to dominate in every type of conventional warfare, be it on land, air, or sea.

Per the accepted global geopolitical theory, world powers are divided into sea, hybrid and land ones. USA today, like the British Empire before it, is the dominant sea power. As is fitting for such super-power, USA’s Navy is the most powerful, and by far the largest, in the world. Until recently, the US Navy, it seemed, owned our planet’s oceans and seas.

Since mid-2000s a rumor circulated that the reason US never attacked Iran from the sea was because they knew Russia could disable the entire US Navy fleet. What mysterious weapon could have been used for such purpose?

While usually Russian defence programs are very secretive, recently, Russia started coming out publicly with more and more breakthrough designs, such as the world’s most advanced Armata tank first presented during the May 9, 2015 Victory Day parade on Red Square.

For a few years now, some Russian politicians have been urging the government to reveal new designs so that the West wouldn’t get any ideas about attacking Russia, like it happened in 1941. The need to make them understand that Russian Army is fully ready to defend the country became especially pressing after the USA and EU’s direct interference in Ukraine, including supplies of weapons, mercenaries and military advisors. As the smell of potential new world war intensified, Russia made a decision to begin showcasing the technology that was kept under wraps all these years.

As my readers and listeners know, I have predicted in the beginning of 2014 that Russia would NOT send any troops to Ukraine, instead ‘gradually remolding the situation in her favor using all quiet and peaceful means at her disposal.’ I said that there would be NO direct confrontation between USA and Russia and that there would be NO hot World War III. I also said back then that the hidden global war would continue raging, be it diplomatically, economically, financially, electronically, or as spy and propaganda war.

This is exactly how the situation has been developing for the past one and a half years. It will continue developing the same way, until the massive EARTH SHIFT we are going through is complete (read more in PREDICTIONS).

Some call it a hybrid war. I call it 4D warfare.

It is beyond the fully incarnated, physical 3D reality. It’s often fought by computer geeks, masterminds, and invisible operators. It can only be gleaned if you know behind which curtain the wizard is hiding.

One of the main reasons the world will NOT go through the physical carnage of another devastating world war is Russian preparedness. This is the best deterrent against any possible aggressor. It falls to Russia, as the Great Balancer of our planet, to become the Sacred Shield and Sword against any global aggression.

As such, Russia always has to be ready. This is why the image of a soldier, protector and Defender of the Motherland, is so important to Russians.

We all recall the strange case of the USS Donald Cook, dubbed ‘Donald Duck,’ which had to urgently retire from the vicinity of the Crimea and the Black Sea after it was buzzed by the mysterious Russian device called KHIBINY, rendering the world’s most sophisticated electronic AEGIS system onboard helpless. What is referred to as KHIBINY is an older Soviet device. If you know about KHIBINY, believe me, you know nothing yet!

In this program we will see for ourselves how target cloning works; how Russian subs confuse and disable attack and spy planes; how a single, ordinary-looking all-terrain vehicle can create an invisible shield to protect the entire city against blanket rocket fire; how to make ballistic missiles explode before they reach target, or better yet, how to prevent them from taking off in the first place, thus rendering any missile system obsolete; how a bullet-proof vest could make the bullet change its trajectory and how a target can vanish from radars.

The program includes Russian Army’s inside footage and, until recently top-secret, demos and live tests; interviews with designers; until recently classified, real names of producers and real names of new Russian weapons, designs of the future, and much, much more!

What appeals to me most is that all designs and weapons you will see are of defensive, or non-offensive, nature. These are not aggressive attack weapons most military documentaries might showcase.

Another thing worth mentioning is the fact that they all seem straight out of Star Trek or a movie about aliens.

Finally, I want to draw your attention to two episodes. One mentions “an undisclosed conflict several years ago.” Per the narrator, throughout that conflict, the Russian army didn’t lose a single plane or helicopter, despite incessant blanket fire from the adversary’s BUK systems. What conflict are they talking about? And how did they avoid any losses?

KHIBINY and the Donald Cook episode are also mentioned, while some interesting details are revealed.

But why don’t you find out for yourself!

Destiny of Russia and Spectacular Show on Red Square

Don’t miss! May 9th, 2015, Moscow. Tastefully masterminded and beautifully performed Great War re-enactment and spectacular concert on Red Square. Includes some of the best and most famous Russian songs and dance – must see! Праздничный концерт «Дороги Великой Победы» на Красной Площади.

Please note, what is customarily translated to English as the “Great Patriotic War” is, like so many others, a bad translation. The right translation is: The Great War for Fatherland (Russian transliteration: Velikaya Otechestvennaya Voina). I simply call it “The Great War,” which gives it the right meaning, too – to match with the “Great Victory.”

Geopolitical message to the world

Throughout the entire day of May 9, 2015 Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping were seen together, talking all the time, while watching the parade and concert – you will see them again in this video of the Red Square concert. This is a clear geopolitical message to the world! Some analysts have said that a new anti-fascist coalition was formed on Red Square on May 9th. Those leaders who came to Moscow celebrations and brought their troops with them are in it. Those who didn’t come… you do the math. This may be correct on some level.

But it goes beyond that – far beyond. The fact that leaders of China, India and a number of other EURASIAN countries arrived, while only Serb and Cyprus presidents were present from Europe, sends another signal. As is well-know, Serbia is a very close-knit part of the Russian world, considering Russia their mother-culture, while Cyprus is the most pro-Russian part of the EU. While the island is primarily ethnically Greek, geographically it’s located next to Turkey, thus being a part of the Middle East, or more broadly – Eurasia. (Added: I am also told that Macedonian president was there as well – same story as Serbia. Please see much more in Comments).

Like I said back in the beginning of 2014: Russia is forced to rebalance to the East. Actually, destiny and the West are pushing Russia towards such rebalancing, whether Russia wants it or not.

Please recall my PREDICTIONS and multiple articles/videos: Russia is the Great Balancer of our planet. The previous great rebalancing started 1000 years ago, a process that was completed by Russia about 300 years ago, during the reign of Peter the Great. This rebalancing gave the West (first Western Europe, and later North America, as well) a huge advantage over the rest of the planet. Such rebalancing happens roughly every 1000 years, although there are also different timelines involved as well. Russia is now starting the process of rebalancing back to the East and Global South.

“The Roads of Great Victory” Re-enactment of the Great War and spectacular concert. Don’t miss it!

Victory Day fireworks with gorgeous views of the Kremlin and Moscow:

And don’t miss the Victory Day parades marathon, including the Immortal Regiment March. The Red Square parade was spectacular. But the Immortal Regiment March stole the show. 12 million people in Russia, post Soviet republics, and beyond took part in the Immortal Regiment March. 500,000 took part in Moscow alone. The entire initiative was grass-roots. I am told that many people from the UK, US, France and elsewhere in Europe came to the march as well, carrying portraits of their relatives who perished in WWII. I literally have never seen anything like this! And I’d been to 30 countries and seen lots of mass marches and parades growing up in the USSR. Victory Day Parades Marathon and The Immortal Regiment March.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon showed up for the May 9th celebration in Moscow. He said that when he saw that sea of people approaching Red Square, he first thought it was anti-Putin protest. But it turned out it was actually pro-Putin and pro-government celebration. You deserve all the love of your people, mr. President, concluded Ban Ki-moon. Whether it was meant as a pretty awkward joke, or he really is that misinformed – you decide.

YUKOS: Murder Incorporated, and the EU Schizophrenia

On my blog, I usually write my own analysis and predictions. However, this specific Venture Capital report by RT, Murder Incorporated, is worth listening to, and is, moreover, a confirmation of much of what I’ve been saying. The analysis of the decision by the Hague and Strasbourg courts, awarding $50bln to the former shareholders of YUKOS, is very well done by the first guest. The anti-Russian sanctions analysis is also on point, and confirms my diagnosis: 1. sanctions are more harmful to the EU, and potentially even US, than to Russia; 2. these sanctions, and the entire attitude by the West, accelerates the Russian turn to the East, away from the West.

YUKOS is the former company of the ex-Russian Jewish oligarch and ex-convict Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who was released from jail on December, 2013, as a result of the Russian Presidential pardon based on humanitarian reasons. Incidentally, the main beneficiary of the $50bln YUKOS compensation would be another oligarch and Khodorkovsky’s crony, Leonid Nevzlin, who is wanted for 5 murders in Russia. Nevzlin managed to escape justice by fleeing to Israel, where he is presently hiding. He would be the recipient of the 70% of the $50bln judgement against the Russian State, should this ever come to pass. The recipients of the remaining 30% would be 4 other Russian oligarchs, hiding somewhere in London, I presume. Isn’t that nice! They want to keep it all in the family!

Leonid Nevzlin is wanted in Russia for authorizing the hit on the mayor of the oil-rich Siberian city of Surgut, and other high-profile hits. These were proven by witness testimonies and evidence. Many more hits were allegedly authorized by him, and by Khodorkovsky as well, which are hard to prove.

It has also been proven that the ex-CEO of YUKOS, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, bought the members of the Russian Duma and plotted a coup to overturn the Russian government, changing the Russian state structure. He and his cronies wanted to make Russia a parliamentary republic instead of the existing presidential republic – all this to unseat Putin, who even in mid-2000 was too big of a threat for the NWO and Transatlantists. At the time of his arrest, Khodorkovsky was supposed to fly to the US, where he was going to sell his stake in YUKOS, the Menatep bank, and other companies he owned together with his cronies, Platon Lebedev, Nevzlin and others. YUKOS at the time was the most powerful Russian oil company and the darling of Wall Street. Khodorkovsky’s plan was to deliver the Russian strategic asset – its oil industry – into the clutches of the US companies. Then, he wanted to take over the Duma and become the US-appointed head of Russia, much like Poroshenko of Ukraine is today.

The Russian government was able to defuse the situation based on the many economic crimes committed by YUKOS. YUKOS laundered billions through various offshore schemes and owed billions in taxes to Russia. This allowed YUKOS and Khodorkovsky’s prosecution based on economic crimes alone.

Why did the EU suddenly decide to resurrect the old lawsuit, which was thrown out previously by the EU courts, and why did they decide to jack up damages from previous $1.2bln to the arbitrary $50bln? Obviously, for political reasons. In the poor EU, torn between its survival & any semblance of reason – and the US pressure, the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing.

It appears, the schizophrenic EU lives according to the old proverb: “To spite my enemy I’ll kill my goat, so my kids would have no milk.” At least, that’s what the EU’s poking Russia with a hot stick of senseless $50bln in damages, together with anti-Russian sanctions, is saying.

Watch Venture Capital report from Red Square:

 

GOLD GT COVER ebookAs some of you know, both of my novels about Russia, THE EARTH SHIFTER and GOLD TRAIN, contain important characters modeled after Russian oligarchs and their illegal activities.

One of the main characters of GOLD TRAIN is oligarch Yury Gurevich, who is modeled after real oligarchs I personally met, and also has the features of the infamous racketeers Boris Berezovsky and Leonid Nevzlin. In Gold Train, Yury Gurevich, supported by the US and UK, as well as certain forces inside Russia, finances and organizes the attempted antigovernment conspiracy in Moscow and St. Petersburg, which gets defused by FSB’s operative, Alexei, in cooperation with the American journalist with Russian roots, Jade Snow. Of course, the book is also about the stolen gold of the Russian Empire and is based on true historic events.

 

Boris Konukovsky, the oligarch depicted in THE EARTH SHIFTER, is even more interesting and multi-faceted. He is the derivative ES COVER ebookof the two real-life characters: YUKOS’s Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Boris Berezovsky, who had so incredibly hung himself – or rather was hung by his UK friends because he knew too much – in his house in London, shortly after he wrote a letter to Putin asking him for pardon and a return home.

The oil company resembling YUKOS in The Earth Shifter is called NORUS. Once a linguist, always a linguist – I couldn’t resist imbedding a code in this name: NORUS = not RUS.

The likeness of Leonid Nevzlin, who in real life authorized hits on those who resisted the YUKOS mafia expansion, in THE EARTH SHIFTER can be seen in the character of the head of NORUS security, Nestor Prokopenko.

Read: Excerpt 2: Russian Oligarch from THE EARTH SHIFTER.
