Vladimir Putin and President Cristina Kirchner of Argentina Inaugurate International Spanish RT Channel
Live tele-bridge in Spanish and Russian, between Moscow and Buenos Aires.
Cristina Kirchner and Vladimir Putin jointly inaugurate the new Spanish-speaking RT channel which will broadcast 24/7 news in Argentina and beyond. Kirchner said that ‘this is a great moment as finally they have an international channel that will work outside of the Western MSM agenda in Spanish. This will be the channel that will broadcast real news, not the fake news prevalent in the Western MSM. It will express the true Latin American values without the interference of the third parties.’
Putin and Kirchner agreed on opening the Spanish channel to broadcast for the entire Latin America under the auspices of RT (Russia Today) when Russian President visited Latin America with a week-long visit this summer. Read my analysis of that visit here: New Predictions! Putin Goes to Latin America: US Creates Wars – Russia Extends a Hand of Cooperation.
During Putin’s summer visit, Argentina expressed desire to host the international Spanish RT channel, and at the same time, confirmed that it would be ready to increase dramatically the export of Argentine agricultural products to the Russian market to replace the banned EU products. Shortly after this, Western MSM suddenly started circulating the ‘news’ that Argentina is about to declare another default. According to the US/EU ‘news,’ Argentina failed to pay interest on its debt in a timely manner. It turned out that in order to generate the ‘pre-default’ state, Western banks holding Argentine funds designated for interest payment, froze Argentine accounts. This generated the inability by the Argentine government to pay on time. Argentinian peso immediately plummeted and capital flight started. Together with the Western MSM hysteria, all this could have tipped the country into a crisis.
It was clear that the sabotage was initiated in order to try to destabilize the country and unseat president Kirchner as payback for her independent policy and for signing agreements with Russia. However, this time the old playbook scenario didn’t work as the Argentine population refused to follow Western script and rallied around their government.
Kirchner and Argentina went ahead with both the increased agricultural exports to Russia and with the opening of the international RT channel in Buenos Aires. The default didn’t happen.

Lavrov for UN Secretary General!
Maybe then UN will finally start doing its job! Unfortunately, after the collapse of the USSR, UN, just like so many countries on the planet, has become a US lapdog.
No one has monopoly on truth – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at UNGA 2014:
The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA. READ MORE: http://on.rt.com/qfreu4
If you have trouble hearing the translation: these things do happen as simultaneous translation is a very complicated and delicate thing – believe me, I know. If you follow the link to RT you’ll find a transcript of the main points of Lavrov’s speech, as well as other UNGA speeches.
Below, I have re-posted this transcript, along with my additional explanations and thoughts.
This is the video of full Lavrov’s speech in Russian.
В своей речи глава российского МИД затронул такие важные темы, как ситуация на Ближнем Востоке, конфликт на Украине, борьба с вирусом Эбола, а также предложил принять декларацию Генассамблеи ООН о непризнании государственных переворотов как метода смены власти. Лавров также подверг резкой критике мировую политику Вашингтона последних лет, назвав ее контрпродуктивной.
Here is also additional commentary in English on RT America.
Lavrov’s full speech with simultaneous English translation. Note, this is a new version with improved sound!
Lada’s notes: since some complain about the sound, below I am also posting the abbreviated transcript from RT.com.
What the summary below doesn’t mention: Lavrov also talked about the new gruesome discovery of mass graves of the Donbass civilians left behind after the Kiev junta army’s retreat. Many of those killed and dumped in mass graves bear torture marks. Lavrov has demanded proper international investigation into the war crimes and crimes against humanity being committed in Ukraine, including bombings, kidnappings and killings in Donbass and elsewhere, the May 2 burning of people alive in Odessa, MH17 flight downing, and shootings on Kiev maidan.
It is amazing how silent US and EU MSM and politicians are about the new mass grave discovery, although it’s being investigated by OSCE!
I am preparing a brand new post about war crimes and atrocities committed in Ukraine, with inside info and predictions as to where all this is going.
Abbreviated transcript from RT
The US-led Western block rejects the principle of the equality of sovereign states secured by the UN Charter while advocating democracy in the international arena, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressing the UNGA.
“The US-led Western alliance, while acting as an advocate of democracy, rule of law and human rights in individual countries, is acting in the international arena from the opposite position, rejecting the democratic principle of the sovereign right of states enshrined in the UN Charter and trying to decide for others what is good and what is bad,” Lavrov said at the 69th session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Saturday.
The Russian foreign minister elaborated that there was an “increasingly obvious contradiction between the need for collective action by partners to produce proper responses to common challenges and some countries’ drive for dominance and revival of the archaic bloc mentality based on barrack-like discipline and flawed ‘us and them’ logic”.
Lavrov added that Russia was willing to compromise and ready to balance interests only based on mutual respect and if the dialogue is “honest, respectful and equal”.
According to the minister the “policy of ultimatums, the philosophy of superiority and domination” run counter to the needs of the 21st century, including the formation of a “polycentric and democratic world order”.
Lavrov stressed that the creation of new dividing lines is unacceptable in Europe saying that “no one has a monopoly on the truth” and no one can customize global and regional processes to “suit their needs.”
Joint efforts can only be built on the principles of mutual respect and mutual consideration of interests, as it is done in the framework of BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), G20 or the UN Security Council, said Lavrov.
The results of such efforts can be seen in the positive progress of the Iranian nuclear program and the successful completion of the destruction of the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile.
According to Lavrov, the examples “to follow” are the Minsk agreements dated September 5 and 19 which presented a roadmap on the ways out of the Ukrainian crisis and set a compromise on the date of Ukraine’s EU association agreement coming into force.
He said Russia had consistently called for “harmonizing” integration projects in Europe and Eurasia.
“The agreement on political benchmarks and timelines of such a ‘convergence of integrations’ would become a real contribution to the work of the OSCE on the topic of ‘Helsinki+40’.”
“Another crucial area of this work would be to launch pragmatic discussions free of ideology on politico-military architecture in the Euro-Atlantic, so that not only NATO and CSTO members but all the countries of the region including Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia enjoy equal and indivisible security and not have to make a false choice of: ‘either with us or against us’,” Lavrov added.
The Western bloc has taken a course of “vertical structuring of humanity” according to its standards, said Lavrov describing the latter as “far from harmless”.
“Proclaiming victory in the Cold War and the onset of ‘history’s end’ the US and the EU committed to expanding their geopolitical space without balancing the legitimate interests of all the peoples of Europe.”

This is the follow-up to: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Address re. Boeing 777 Catastrophe in Ukraine
The last post was in response to a very interesting comment by a reader named Paul, which you can find by clicking on the link above. Paul Plane is incidentally the host of The Plane Truth Show on the Time Monk Radio. We just recorded a new interview, which will be posted in a couple of days – stay tuned.
In response to my latest article, Paul posted a new comment, which I again found so interesting that I decided to post some additional thoughts. To keep it brief, I won’t post Paul’s comment here; to see it, please go to comment section in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Address re. Boeing 777 Catastrophe in Ukraine.
Lada’s reply to Paul’s latest comment:
I understand Paul’s frustration. In part, he is right – there is the Russian elite issue, but not as much as it is portrayed to be. I have to disagree with Paul in part. And I must caution everyone who consider themselves friends of Russia and friends of humanity as a whole. I believe it’s best to remain positive here.
I think I explained some of it in the previous article, as well as in our upcoming interview on The Plane Truth.
This is not just another crisis. We are dealing with those who are trying to start a full-scale hot war in Europe. Putin’s caution is understandable, and frankly, so is the caution of the EU leaders. 300 people were just sacrificed to the mad attempt to start WWIII. This has to be absolutely clear. I am convinced that some on the ground actually thought they were shooting Russian Presidential plane! Think about it, it would have been so much easier to convince some angry (at Russia and Putin) Ukrainian to shoot down Putin’s plane than a plane full of innocent bystanders from the EU!
If Putin’s plane were to be shot down – it would mean immediate declaration of war! We know who desperately wants this to happen, and who doesn’t! Of course, Putin’s security would never allow the plane to be flown over Ukraine, but someone there was told/thought it was the case. THEY want Russia to start a war with Ukraine, plain and simple!
For those who haven’t yet, read Blatant #FalseFlag: #Ukraine Missile Targeted #Putin’s Plane – Hit Malaysia #MH17 Instead!
It is also clear that downing a plane with primarily EU citizens on board is a direct attempt to further divide Russia and EU. Who benefits from such scenario? USA and Kiev junta only, the same parties who want to start Russia’s war with Ukraine, which is planned to become a full-scale hot war in Europe, smoothly transitioning into World War III! Of course the kiev shmucks are not privy to the real plans of washington and anglo-american elites (lc deliberate – LR).
Is it any wonder after everything that happened, and keeps happening, that Putin is showing a strain? Can any of us even imagine the pressure he is under from all sides? Including – sadly – the sides that should be his allies, his friends, but keep nudging him to start a war, which I know, and he knows, will lead to global catastrophe?
It just occurred to me that Paul’s words resemble what Russian geopolitical analyst Alexander Dugin, a former advisor to Putin, has been saying. I don’t follow Dugin; he is a smart man, but I think his attitude is very angry and unhelpful to the resolution of this difficult situation. Actually, with his constant criticism of late of Putin’s actions, and calls for Russian intervention in Ukraine, he has angered a lot of people in Russia. It is counter-productive when analyst of such level forgets cold reason and starts running on emotions. For those who want to follow Russian analytics, I recommend the always in control and logical, as well as reasonable, Nikolay Starikov. This is Starikov’s latest video blog, where in the beginning he answers the Boeing 777 question. There are other interesting answers as well. Sorry, I can’t translate it at this time, but please try to use Google translator, if you need to.
And I can assure you all, there is SO MUCH MORE that goes on behind the scenes. Can you imagine if you just learned US via their Kiev proxy tried to shoot down your plane? Clearly, this was a warning for Putin, an attempt to intimidate him, and ALL OTHER WORLD LEADERS. “Stop resisting our globalist agenda, or your personal plane is next.”
We are talking trying to save the world from the ultimate war – because this war will be the last one.
Short of accepting the escalation leading to WWIII, the only course of action Putin has right now is to SHIFT EUROPE away from the US. This is the only possible way to save Europe from war – and this is what Putin is busy doing. I said this in many, many of my previous articles; I explained it many times that it is Europe that decides the outcome; I also said on more than one occasion that the responsibility is on Merkel and Germany, as the political leader of Europe, to say no to what’s going on. Only Europe can put the end to this craziness peacefully (this is the key operational word here) by refusing to play on the side of the US and by siding with Russia. When Kiev nazis see they have no support from those they are trying so desperately to join, this whole house of cards will collapse and US warmongers will find themselves isolated.
On the other hand, villas on the French Riviera by the Russian elite may play some role here. However, largely Russia wants to be, and Russia MUST BE, friends with Europe for the same reason it is friends with China – they are very close neighbors and partners. Russia is also close friends with South America for example, and that’s much further from the Eurasian continent. Russia would happily be friends with the US as well, the moment US stops trying to destroy Russia. Then I could happily stop writing these kinds of articles and go to Tibet to meditate.
The view Russia (or at least Putin) takes, and so do I: we ALL share one space, we have one planet, and we should live in peace and cooperation on this planet.
Please, everyone, think very deeply about what I just said. I explained it in so many previous articles already, that I think this is the last time I am going to explain it as there are so many other topics for me to write about.
It is up to Europeans to engage and restore balance and justice, if you want it done quickly and peacefully! Europe, by its harmful and unnatural position of siding with the US warmongers against Russia, which against all odds is trying to keep world peace, is what is allowing this conflict to escalate. IF Europeans didn’t happily acquiesce to the subservient symbiosis with the US, many of the atrocities in Ukraine could have been avoided, and many lives could have been saved. IF EU didn’t support and encourage the Kiev junta, Kiev oligarchs wouldn’t be this bold and US wouldn’t dare escalate the situation so openly. Look what happened in Syria when the EU refused to participate!
Russia can continue fighting this alone, but it will be a long and arduous journey. Unless you, Europeans, make your governments act in YOUR best interests!
Last but not least, I want to remind everyone not to confuse non-confrontation with weakness. See, US and NATO understand the difference very well, and this is why they won’t dare attack Russia directly. They know how it will end for the attacker.
Read this article in conjunction with: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Address re. Malaysian Airliner Catastrophe in Ukraine
The events are evolving very quickly. As I am writing this, new info keeps surfacing. Unfortunately, I hear that the EU is threatening Russia with new sanctions because of the Boeing 777 catastrophe. Before any investigation has begun? Based on the accusations of Kiev and USA, the only two parties that stood to benefit from the tragedy and the two parties that are well-known for their lies?
Should I forget everything I said previously that Europeans have some sense and reason? Well, I can tell you all: if Europe does initiate a new round of sanctions against Russia based on false pretense, they may break even Putin’s staunch, undying resolve for peaceful resolution.
Then help us all god, or perhaps I should say – humans will get what they deserve? Perhaps humans don’t deserve peace; perhaps they can only learn from war. I do understand Paul’s frustration better and better. Let’s just remember: this kind of reaction to their provocations is EXACTLY what the US wants. And since we are almost exactly 100 years into the future from the start of WWI in 1914, let me remind you all that this is exactly how escalation to WWI happened! And this is exactly how escalation to WWII happened. The brainless British Empire and USA kept bullying, provoking, appeasing and buying off Hitler, despite Stalin’s attempts for years to create and anti-fascist alliance with the West. They kept nudging Hitler to attack USSR, hoping their two biggest rivals – Germany and Russia (USSR) will destroy each other. The escalation that lasted several years, culminated in WWII.
Incidentally, the above warning to humanity similarly sounds loud and clear in my top-rated mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER, which you can find on Amazon and BN.
Today, USA and Anglo-American elites want to pit Russia and EU against each other for the same purpose!
Those who don’t know history are on fast track to repeat it.
In conclusion, here are the links to the important brand new videos – some in Russian, some in English. Please use google translation, if necessary.

Ukraine track record: Russian plane was downed by Ukraine in 2001, 78 dead and despite international investigation concluding it was Ukraine’s fault, to this day Ukraine didn’t admit responsibility. Ukraine credibility: Kiev lied and falsified info re. Boeing 777 downing on 7/17/2014: 1. the tape of Donbass self-defence commanders discussing downing of a plane turned out a fake slapped together from 6 different conversations, some that happened before this catastrophe; 2. footage of a BUK system supposedly belonging to Donbass self-defence and retreating towards Russia turned out to be filmed in the area of Ukraine controlled by Kiev government and far from positions of Donbass self-defence. Watch video.

8. Must see! Malaysian Airlines plane crash: Russian military unveil data on MH17 incident over Ukraine! FULL press conference! English
9. Must see! Pravda: “Целью США является свержение Путина” – USA’s goal is to overturn Putin
I have received a number of questions from frustrated readers regarding what some think is a weak response to the accusations that Russia is responsible for downing the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine. We all know that, as Goebbels said (or was it Machiavelli? Not much difference really), so the lie would be believed, it has to be monstrous. Ukraine and US are the faithful students of Hitler, Goebbels and other fascists. They live by it.
Here is what one reader says: “It looks like Russia is losing the info war over the Malaysian plane, perhaps badly. Has Putin given any speeches about it? He could have said “The US pulled off a putsch, installed a government full of radicals who idolize the Nazis, and want Russian speakers expelled or treated like dirt. All as a means to harm Russia. Then they regularly flew fighter jets next to commercial planes on their bombing runs. So, even if the Nazi resistance army shot this plane, which is doubtful, the responsibility lies with those who control Kiev.” Not only did Putin need to say this, but the Russian government needed to buy ad space around the world for this. In Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Amsterdam, and Berlin. You have seen some of the Anglo media; it is talking about a world war. Truth might have defeated the Nazis, but not before tens of millions died. I have read many who say that Russia or the separatist army must be guilty because of their responses.”
The above is a very reasonable and understandable reaction. See full comment by Paul and my complete response in the comment section of Prediction re. Germany Joining China and Russia Alliance, including my explanation that Ukraine is the shadow side of Russia (which is meant in a spiritual sense). Generally, I recommend early readers return later to previous articles, because I oftentimes post additional explanations and discussions in the comment section in response to the interesting reader questions. I may include details or angles that didn’t make it into the main article, which substantially enriches and furthers the understanding.
“The responsibility lies with those who control Kiev.” I can assure you all that Putin has been saying these same words all along; so does the Russian Defence Ministry, which is apparent from videos below. Apparently, no one ever quotes Putin, except RT. Must be because he is so insignificant and unimportant, just like the president of Gana, you know. This is called information vacuum. People like my readers and myself – we don’t go to MSM for news since we know they will present a twisted or deliberately distorted picture of the world. We go where we can find the truth. But the majority listens to CNN and reads the usual. So, their picture is distorted.
Besides, in any commentary, be it on YouTube or newspapers, there are TOO MANY trolls. Many are paid Kiev/US trolls, who may operate from Ukraine, Russia, US or Canada. They have invaded the entire cyberspace. Much of the commentary out there is from trolls, or from those who are pathological haters of Russia. Don’t expect either of these to reform. Problem is – they are infecting a lot of others who sway with the wind as they have no backbone or reason.
This reader’s suggestions about taking out ad space are very reasonable. Perhaps Russian decision-makers will read these articles and comments, and will take that into account. Well, Washington Post apparently reads my articles as they have quoted me… and misspelled my name (separate story, which is also coming up). So, perhaps Russians are also reading this. Let’s hope they heed the above practical advice!
Russia is restrained because they are waiting for the Malaysian crash commission to start working, and to make their own conclusions. Because, if said commission is even remotely unbiased, there can only be one conclusion: Kiev shot down the poor Malaysian airplane.
The last I’ve heard, the Kiev junta is keeping the investigative commission in Kiev, where they have to sit and ‘negotiate’. Negotiate what exactly? One would think that every day is precious in such circumstances. The investigators still have not arrived to the site of the catastrophe. The PM of the Donetsk Republic, Alexander Borodai, announced that they recovered 8 or more of what looks like black boxes and they are being kept safe until the international investigative commission arrives; they will not give them to Kiev for fear Kiev will temper with evidence. Borodai said that they will demand that EU investigators sign for the black boxes and confirm that they were received intact. Video: A. Borodai says: Черные ящики будут переданы только экспертам из ИКАО – Black boxes will only be given to the international expert commission.
He sounded very frustrated that Kiev is practically keeping investigators hostage, essentially preventing them from reaching the site of the crash. Looks like Kiev is trying to sabotage and delay investigation. It is conceivable that Kiev is using the delay, to try to remove any incriminating evidence and erase clues. It appears the Kiev military is also moving the BUK systems away from where they were located so the observers can’t confirm BUKs were actually there during the shooting of the plane. A BUK missile launched from the Ukraine military position near Donetsk is what the Russian Defence Ministry believes brought down the airplane.
I have to say that the appearance here is that the criminals are getting away with murder – mass murder, to be exact. I understand everyone’s frustration. But you know what, I actually believe in the Europeans’ common sense and reason. They are scared of the US, but not fooled. Long term this works against US/Kiev. I also think Putin sees that, too.
Below is Putin’s latest speech, where he again reconfirms Kiev’s responsiblity for the tragedy.
My translation: “In regards to the terrible events that happened in the sky above Donetsk, I want to one more time tell everyone what we in Russia think about it. More than once we called on all sides to immediately stop bloodshed and sit down to negotiate. I can confidently say that if on June 27 the military operation in the east of Ukraine wasn’t renewed (he refers to the fact that president-elect Poroshenko gave order to renew punitive military op against Donbass despite his promise to extend the cease-fire – LR) this tragedy wouldn’t have happened. At the same time, no one has the right to take advantage of this tragedy to further their unsavory political aims. Events such as these should unite people, not further divide them. All who are in charge in Kiev must finally recognize their responsibility towards the people of their own country and towards those countries whose citizens became victims of this catastrophe. Everything must be done to ensure the security of the investigators who will be working at the site. The representatives of Donetsk, Kiev, and experts from Malaysia already work there. But this isn’t enough. The work must be done by the fully formed commission consisting of the international investigators. Everything must be done to ensure they can work without any risk to their lives. Humanitarian corridors must be provided. On our part, Russia will do everything in her power so that the present conflict in Ukraine transitioned from its military phase into a phase of exclusively peaceful negotiations.”

The entire site is being closely patrolled by the Donetsk Republic’s self-defence units. Their task is to provide safety and to prevent any provocations by the Kiev junta/ Ukraine nazis/ private mercenary army of oligarch Kolomoysky.
5. Russian Defence Ministry’s 10 questions to Kiev re. Malaysian plane catastrophe. This video only lists 4 questions unfortunately, but the entire list was 10.
To me the main question to ask is this: For what purpose did Kiev make the plane deviate from its course into the war zone? This is the key point: only Kiev had authority and opportunity to do that! ONLY KIEV!
Let me remind what I said previously: this is not the first time Ukraine shoots down civilian aircraft. 13 years ago, in 2001, a Ukraine missile shot down a commercial jet from the Russian Sibir airline, en route to Turkey. Over 80 people died. Ukraine denied its responsibility and only admitted it after Russia presented irrefutable evidence of their missile involvement.
But if the 2001 tragedy could have been a sloppy mistake by the poorly trained Ukraine military, the 2014 Malaysia plane downing is a result of a malicious premeditation.
It has become known that several hours before the tragedy, Ukrainian MSM started suddenly reporting that Donetsk self-defence army possessed and operated the BUK systems, something everyone knew was untrue since the BUK is a very sophisticated mobile rocket launch system requiring a well-trained and coordinated crew. Even IF self-defence took any BUK systems as trophies from the Kiev troops, they wouldn’t know how to operate them. However, this disinfo was necessary to prepare the public for what was to happen a few hours later, namely, the downing of a plane with a missile launched from a BUK, to be blamed on Donbass Republic’s self-defence.

Dear readers, because I am going on vacation, I am posting a total of three new pieces today. They are all different and give a voice to my readers. I just love engaging my readers, so please continue leaving good, helpful to the discussion, and responsible comments! The most interesting ones I may turn into an article or a cool debate.

This is guest post by a friend of FuturisTrendcast and spiritual blogger extraordinaire, Kp at kauilapele.wordpress.com. I am reposting Kp’s open letter to US president Obama with Kp’s kind permission: Original article link.

Letter to Obama by Kauilapele:
Dear Mr. President:
I would like you to view this video.
The Truthseeker: Ukraine Gangster State Calls for ‘Nuclear Strikes’ (E42)
I am absolutely appalled that this U.S. administration is supporting and backing a person such as Poroshenko, as well as his predecessor, a Nazi (Svoboda) sympathizer.
I am absolutely ashamed to have to say that I live in a country whose government is supporting an essentially Nazi-style regime that bombs its own people. You call yourself the President of a so called “of/by/for the People” government? It appears to be nothing of the sort. And certainly the Ukraine government appears to be nothing of the sort.
Everyone is quite aware that the US and NATO are behind the overthrow of the previous Ukrainian President, as well as the current inhumane bombing and shelling of East Ukrainian cities and their people.
You are supporting this???? These are war crimes.
And you are blaming Russia for the shooting and the problems over there? And for the annexation of Crimea, which was nothing of the sort? They voted to return to Russia.
This is not what I signed up for with you, Mr. President, and I offer my strong NO to any continued U.S. involvement in Ukrainian affairs.
BLD [aka KP]
A word from Lada:
3 Russian, one Italian and one (I believe) Belorussian journalist have been already killed in Eastern Ukraine by the Western backed Kiev junta, while attempting to perform their duties of filming and telling the truth. At least 5 or 6 Russian journalists had been kidnaped and tortured by the junta and Ukraine nazis. All these returned home with severe injuries. Since only Russian journalists are trying to film the actual events there, if they are intimidated and banned from Ukraine, the world will never know the truth of the Kiev crimes! The European values and Western democracy look like this in Ukraine:
1. Streamer (volunteer cameraman who films footage of real events) Vlad, 16, kidnapped and tortured by Kiev nazis.
Vlad, who is originally from Mariupol, Eastern Ukraine, started filming how Kiev tanks occupied his native city, shooting civilians, running them over, destroying the city. This footage went viral. After that, Vlad was kidnapped and tortured by the ukro-nazis. His family was threatened and he was made to sign a document announcing that everything he filmed was a lie. When Vlad was kidnapped, a global social media storm entitled “Free streamer Vlad” started, as a result of which Vlad was released.
Don’t ever underestimate the grass-roots movement!
Added at 5:33. Unbelievable! I just posted this video from AnnaNews containing the interview with 16year old Streamer Vlad after his release (plus another one below), and it already says that their account has been terminated. I know for a fact they have no copyright infringement as all videos are their own authentic reports. These are bogus copyright claims so their channel is terminated and all the evidence they have collected is wiped out. This is not the first time this has happened. Someone is really bent on destroying the evidence of crimes committed in Ukraine. Sorry, had to delete the video interview with Vlad.
This is the video of the latest killing of a Russian cameraman for Channel 1 Russia, Anatoly Klyan. I found out more about this man from other sources in Russian. He was well over 60 and retired. He spent 40 years behind the camera in the hottest spots on the globe. He filmed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and just about everywhere else. He decided to come out of retirement to help out in eastern Ukraine. Kiev put a ban on the entry onto the territory of Ukraine of ALL RUSSIAN MALES aged 16 to 60. Western democracy in action, people!
So, Anatoly Klyan said: “I am over 60. I can go, I can be useful.” Russian correspondent and Klyan were riding in the bus together with soldiers’ mothers, who were going to a Ukrainian military base to protest their conscripted sons being dragged into war with their own people. The bus was ambushed. Klyan was wounded and died before reaching the hospital. The driver was wounded in the head and drove the bus to safety with the bleeding head wound, at the expense of his life. He died too.
Another report in Russian about Klyan’s death – Tragedy in Donetsk:
3. Also, a news summary for Novorossia from AnnaNews. (the video below had to be deleted because YT terminated the AnnaNews channel a few minutes ago). They have the English stream at the bottom of screen. They also talk about the death of the Russian cameraman and bus driver. In another news: Novorossia announced that all properties by oligarch Akhmetov will be nationalized (he is the biggest oligarch in Donbass). Also nationalized will be all properties of those oligarchs who are refusing to pay taxes to the Donetsk Republic. Also, in Slavyansk, which is constantly being bombed, people are being hospitalized with symptoms of Chlorine (or Chlor?) poisoning. It appears Kiev is using Chlor based chemical weapons on population.
Text in Russian: В Донецке на территории воинской части 1428 фашисты открыли огонь по автобусу, в котором находились матери солдат-срочников и журнилисты. В результате обстрела был убит оператор ОРТ Анатолий Клян и водитель автобуса, который ценой своей жизни вывез автобус с людьми из-под обстрела. СКР России возбудило по данному факту уголовное дело. Под обстрел у воинской части попала так же съемочная группа Lifenews.
С горы Карачун продолжался обстрел района Артем города Славянска. В результате обстрела есть убитые и раненые среди мирного населения, поврежден трансформатор — единственный на весь район. Украинские каратели обстреливают Металлист. Люди с симптомами отравления хлором поступают в больницы Славянка.
Пушилин заявил, что ДНР планирует национализировать предприятия Р.Ахметова и все предприятия, которые не платят налоги.
4. More eye-opening eyewitness videos:
Huge line of Ukrainian refugees cars waiting to cross into Russia – Izvarino, Lugansk:
Footage of refugees from Ukraine running into the Russian territory to hide from shelling. Starts at 1:55.
Ukrainian military base: soldiers refuse to fight and leave base. Conscripts’ mothers are waiting for them at the gate to take them home:
As Kiev intensifies its punitive military operation against what it insists is part of the Ukrainian population, US and EU deny the atrocities. The body count grows as apartment blocks, hospitals and kindergartens get bombed, as people have to hide in cellars and parents are desperate to save their children. In the past weeks the Kiev military did not allow the refugees to leave the country. If a bus or car approached the border, they would turn them around or shoot at them. Per reports, the Kiev military would laugh at crying women and children attempting to escape the war by saying: “Go back where you belong, and we’ll get you there.”
The Kiev junta is without a doubt a stellar example of a truly democratic regime, and that’s why it is 100% supported and happily financed by the US and EU!
After Russia raised hell in the UN about all this, insisting that a humanitarian corridor for water, food, supplies and to let out the women and children is needed, it appears Kiev loosened its grip on the border, allowing the children to leave.
You would think this were World War II!
Below is a footage of a bus with children being evacuated from #Slavyansk, accompanied by the sound of bombings. Russian: Автобусы с детьми покидают Славянск под звук бомбардировок.
The video is self-explanatory.
The hand-scribbled sign on the front of the bus reads: DETI – Children. The sign near the bus in the end of the video reads: Ukr pilots are fascist killers.
The woman’s voice in the background: “Turchinov and the Kiev junta are taking away our children. It is because of them our children have to leave while bombs explode. I wish their own children would experience horror such as this till the end of their days. What they are doing to us, I wish the same to them.”
From the SBU sources (Security Services of Ukraine) it is known that the US signaled to the prez-elect of Ukraine, oligarch Poroshenko, that “if 2-3 thousand of eastern Ukraine people are killed during punitive operation, the world won’t even flinch. We can handle it as long as eastern Ukraine is cleared of “separatists” so everything is quiet for Poroshenko’s inauguration.”
The punitive military op against Donbass therefore has to be handled expeditiously so it’s over by the time Poroshenko “ascends to his throne” as a “legitimate president of Ukraine” – blameless and clean.
Watch the video!
Here is a report in English about the refugee camps set up for the people of eastern Ukraine (#Donbass) in Russia. The orphans are the highest risk as the areas where orphanages are located get bombed, and food and water supplies run low in the cities that get attacked by the Kiev junta. It has to be noted that there are American, British, French, Georgian, Spanish, Polish, Lithuanian and other mercenaries that have been seen among the Kiev military attacking eastern Ukraine -#Donetsk and #Lugansk Republics. US has officially announced that it would train the Kiev military.
Video report: G7 meeting: West threatens Russia with more sanctions IF Russia doesn’t stop supporting east Ukraine (apparently letting those people die!), while US promises to train Ukraine military (evidently for more skilled punitive operations against the East!).

“Every country deserves its government” is a quote attributed to Frederich Nietzsche. How true it is looking at today’s Ukraine.
And here is another thought: “A lot of what is currently happening is not a part of the initial script intended for Ukraine. When you play with fire, be prepared for it to get out of control.” Lada Ray

Russia’s role in Ukraine
So, the billion dollar question is: what is Russia’s role in all this? Russia has been extremely, and surprisingly to some, quiet and restrained on the Ukraine issue. Russia had stressed a few times that EU and US interference is unacceptable. Putin also remarked that joining the EU association agreement is Ukraine’s sovereign decision that has nothing to do with Russia. Compare that with constant interferences by the EU and US in internal affairs of sovereign Ukraine.
Russia also said firmly that should Ukraine sign a free trade agreement with the EU, Russia would cancel its own free trade deal with Ukraine to protect its industry. The moment it has been said, the howling that Russia is putting pressure on poor, defenceless Ukraine, from both sides of the Atlantic became so deafening as if Russia just invaded USA and EU combined.

A bit of history
I have to interrupt my planned #SochiOlympics post on Lada Ray Blog, which will be posted soon, due to the fresh wave of madness enveloping #Ukraine.
I was born in Moscow to a Russian father and Ukrainian mother. In Russia and USSR, mixed marriages were absolutely normal and happened all the time. We all thought we were a part of one great Russian culture – and therefore, there was nothing to divide and nothing to fight about, there was no score to keep… Read the rest of this entry
