Remember I said that the more US tries to surround Russia with bases, hostile regimes and provocations, the more it will create a self-fulfilling prophecy. Russia would simply be forced to respond.
As the Russian saying goes, ‘Russians saddle slowly but ride fast.’ NOT a good idea to test Russia, you know. It never ends well for the aggressor.
I told you recently about the renewed Russian interest in Cuba. And this is Russia-Venezuela joint drills.
Pompeo is livid.
Spectacular landing of the ‘White Swans!’ Take a watch:

Sergey Grishin, former co-owner of Rosevrobank, explains in detail how he was making profit out of forged letters of advice in the early 90s. He allegedly stole four trillion rubles ($60 billion), and possibly more. He admits he almost managed to destroy the Russian banking system back then.
Fugitive from Russian justice, Grishin lives in Santa Barbara, USA, and is desperate to obtain US citizenship. He apparently thinks that by telling US authorities that he hates Russia and has successfully harmed it in the past, he would be on fast track for citizenship. Moreover, he says, he has secret valuable intel he wants to sell to the US authorities, to further harm Russia.

REPOSTED FROM LADA RAY PATREON
As we discussed in my NEWEST Patreon Predictions, Russia is gathering new allies as fast as the US has been losing them.
Related latest Patreon articles:
Right after his brief stop in Paris for the commemoration of the Centennial of the End of WWI, Putin is vising the Republic of Singapore.
It’s a three-day state visit, which is unusually long for Putin. Usually he stays a rather short time in any country he visits. Such expanded itinerary underscores the importance of the developing relationship.
Watch this: it’s symbolic that Putin and the President of Singapore Halimah Yacob are together blessing the foundation of the new Russian Cultural Center and first Russian church in Singapore:
What does all this tell us? Simply that Asian countries are working hard on broadening and deepening relations with Russia. And that Russia the Great Balancer is doing what I predicted in 2014: rebalancing the world away from the West and towards the East. Note: My newest predictions are discussed in the articles linked on top.
A former colony of the British Empire, Singapore received independence in 1963-65, when colonialism was crumbling all over the world as a result of the strengthening of Russia the Great Balancer as the counterforce to Western imperialism, after the USSR’s win in WWII. As the UK and other Europeans were forced to leave most of their former colonies, within a short period between late 1940s and 1960s over three dozen states in Asia and Africa received independence.
We’ve talked about the end of colonialism and how the process worked in my big post:
Ever since, thanks to the policies of the first PM of Singapore, the legendary Lee Kuan Yew, this very small country became exceptionally successful economically and socially. A stable society with great benefits and good educational system, runaway success within SE Asia, a global trade and shipping hub and newly expanding banking heaven to rival Switzerland — that’s what Singapore is today. And very expensive to live, too. 😉
Clearly, a country you want to have a good relationship with. And when the feeling is mutual, even more so…
ADDED: New video about Putin’s Singapore visit, as a precursor to two upcoming summits, ASEAN and East Asian, which are being hosted simultaneously by the country. It explains more and confirms what I said in the main post:
By the way, this is Putin’s first ever visit to Singapore. Putin will also take part in two upcoming summits: East Asian and Russia-ASEAN.
**ORIGINAL POST ON PATREON LINK: New Ally for Russia? Putin in Singapore (Lada’s Commentary)
**Since we are on the topic of Singapore, great news! I’ll be starting to post on Patreon the Geopolitical Quantum Calibrations for SE Asia, and we’ll begin with my two favorites: Singapore and Malaysia! Later we’ll do Thailand and Indonesia, and culminate with China! On Patreon we are calibrating and interpreting the countries requested by my patrons, and the countries most in the news. But in the future, I’ll reveal many more countries’ calibrations! Stay tuned for my upcoming big announcements, which will explain all!
**Incidentally, I want to share with you: I am working on some new PODCASTS. Last and this week we have had some big events and my podcasts will focus on some of them. One will discuss the important and telling signals sent by Putin, Trump, Macron and Merkel at the Paris WWI Armistice Centennial, and why Macron didn’t let Putin and Trump meet in Paris – I’ll interpret the events and it’s something I think we all should pay attention to! I also plan to discuss the striking and hopeful Donbass (LDPR) elections, in contrast to the growing Ukraine troubles and Poroshenko’s end. Stay tuned, I’ll try to release everything soon! I may also find time to mention other important events as sidenotes within these podcasts, such as Merkel leaving her post of Germany’s Chancellor, simply because I want you all to be in the loop of the latest important developments – and there are many earth-shifting ones happening all the time!
There is a lot to talk about – tons of rich, important and even entertaining content – but I don’t have time to write full articles on these crucial earth-shifting topics. That’s why they will be released in the form of podcasts. If you want to know what I think and what I predict, please listen to my podcasts, as well as read articles!
Podcasts will appear first on Patreon and then they’ll be posted free on various platforms. If you are my Patreon subscriber (all tiers), you get access first. Free versions will be available later on Lada Ray channels on YouTube, iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud.
I went back and forth on my podcast’s name, and I think I am returning back to the original EARTH SHIFT PODCAST, or LADA RAY ESP for short. To be finalized soon!
COUNTDOWN TO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS CONTINUES!
As always, A MILLION THANKS TO ALL MY DEAR PATREON SUPPORTERS!
I COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
One of our dear Patreon members Seeker has recently traveled to Moscow. Seeker comes from one of the most well-to-do and prosperous countries in the EU. This was a business trip, during which he represented his country at the international agricultural expo, and his view of the modern Moscow is from a rare perspective, that of a business traveler.
I’ve written a number of articles in the past, with pics showcasing various facets of the cool, traditional and historic Moscow (you’ll find them on LadaRay Blog, and some on FT). What makes Seeker’s contribution truly rare and invaluable is that you won’t glean the perspective he offers from me (since I am not a corporate business traveler), nor from any others, who do travelogs and travel videos.
The insider images are spectacular, especially those of the new Moscow-City architecture (aka, Moscow International Business Center)! Just love it!
MANY THANKS TO SEEKER!

We may soon also have a rare photo expose about Africa, from our patron and community member who lives in Nigeria and knows the place intimately! Very exciting!
I am so happy I can provide this opportunity for the dear to my heart members of our community to share their countries, travels and world adventures! I plan to do more in the future! If you are my Patreon Patron and would like to feature your exciting traveling or your country’s photo or video story on my Patreon site and possibly also on FuturisTrendcast, please email me!

How Much Does A Battle Tank Cost? T-90 & Armata (Russia) vs. Abrams (US) comparisons! Plus Israeli, UK, German and French Tank Comps
Soooo… The ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-threatening’ NATO, under the proud leadership of the US, has been running the Largest since 1991 NATO drills in Norway (What do Russians Think?)
In case you didn’t know, during the Norway drills, a ‘poor’ local village is supposed to have been ‘liberated from the Russian aggression by the brave American soldiers.’ Yes, just like that. And it’s all happening right next to the Russian border. So… Who’s the aggressor again??…
Since we have such an occasion, I got really curious about tanks various countries produce. Therefore, I did some looking, and…
The latest variant of the Abrams tank, USA, is currently the M1A2 SEP. Building one from scratch is reported to cost 8.58 million USD. If you already have an M1A1/A2 available, then the SEP upgrade will only cost you 6.81 million USD. ONLY! LOL.
|Unit cost||USD 2.5 million in 1999, USD 2.77 – 4.25 million in 2011 (varies by source) T-90MS: USD 4.5 Million in 2016|
Flying T-90 — The light Russian T-90, a hybrid evolution of the T-72 and T-80, weighs in at under 48 tons – speed, maneuverability and flexibility
New Russian tank Armata: costs seem to vary between discounted preview price of under $4mln to $7-8mln, according to some Western ‘experts,’ but then we know how believable and ‘Russia-friendly’ those are.
New Russian T-14 Armata
Average tank from various world manufacturers costs anywhere between $3.5mln and $8+mln. The upper end can be as high as $12+mln. The cost efficiency to quality ratio seems to be by far the highest in Russian and Israeli tanks.
Heavy US M1 Abrams, a whooping 68 tons in weight – per the video below, tends to get stuck in the mud due to being seriously overweight, lol. Who needs that maneuverability, right? As long as the military-industrial complex gets to make more money!
Here’s another list I found – variations in price are normal, due to modifications and upgrades:
M1 Abrams (M1A2/FY99) – $8.92 million
FV4034 Challenger 2 – $5.54 million
Leopard 2 (2A6)- $7.18 million
AMX-56 Leclerc – $4+million
T-14 Armata – $3.7 million
Merkava (Merkava mk.4) – $3.5 million to IDF; $4.5 million to others.
Video COMPARISON – US M1 Abrams (M1A2) vs. RUSSIAN T-90 MS – make your own conclusions:

Ukraine finally forced Russia to react to the never-ending stream of provocations, hostile actions and sanctions. So far, over 300 individuals and 68 companies are on the list, including infamous oligarchs and politicians, who have property and assets in Russia. Properties and assets are being frozen and money transfers from Russia blocked for these people and companies.
On the list are Yulia Timoshenko, Poroshenko’s son Alexei, interior minister Avakov, and many of the Ukraine oligarchs and politicians. But this is only the beginning! I seriously hope there’s more to come! Those individuals only understand force, they don’t get nice and they don’t get reason!
Listen to details:
The funny thing is, conspicuously missing from the list are: Poroshenko and Ukraine foreign minister Klimkin, who recently admonished Ukrainians publicly, demanding they all give up their ‘secret’ Russian passports. It turned out many Ukrainians do secretly hold dual Russian citizenships. The funniest part is that Klimkin himself also has one! Therefore, the ongoing joke in Russia today is that only Klimkin is expected to give up his Russian passport, but no one else.
The fact that these individuals aren’t on the sanctions list makes one almost think they are… secret ‘Kremlin agents’?..
Incidentally, Ukraine will have elections next year, and Poroshenko’s rating is sorely lagging being in single digits. No matter how much he tries to play anti-Russia card it’s not working. The highest rated Tymoshenko’s rating is only about 15%! Meanwhile, their negative ratings (rating of how much people distrust these characters) are through the roof!

#Skripal hoax vs #KhashoggiMurder: Usual West’s Double Standards towards #Russia vs #SaudiArabia (Lada’s Commentary)
And then there’s this:
FYI: MBS is Saudi crown prince.
Confirming all the above, Trump said that sanctions vs Saudi Arabia will result in skyrocketing oil prices and will hurt US economy. Maybe true, but where were these ‘sound’ economic considerations when the diabolical sanctions against Russia were adopted, and then adopted again, and again?
EU economy suffered plenty of hardship, and will suffer more due to Iran sanctions. But who cares about Europe. Just confirms how subservient the EU is to Anglo-Americans.
Also confirms how desperate they are becoming due to #EarthShift, and how desperately they are trying to squash Russia the Great Balancer!

WE GO ALL IN-DEPTH:
Yep, long story short, it happened exactly as predicted: Western sanctions only benefited Russian economy!
Russian Farmer: Thanks for Sanctions, Mr President! Putin: Thank the West.
That said, sanctions are never good, if the world can live without them. Bottom line, all the aggressive moves by the West against Russia have either backfired already or will soon.

Excellent article Lada, so much information it’s unbelievable how much I learn from your writings. Thank you
TESTIMONIALS for all of Lada’s work
Per latest I’ve heard, the death toll has climbed to 21 at the site of the tragedy of the Kerch Polytechical College. This is a very suspicious act, which at the very least begs a lot of questions. It’s very hard to imagine that a sole 18-year-old madman could execute a successful act of such magnitude. How he was helped and by whom, that’s a different question… Russian police also has expressed a doubt this could possibly be an act of a sole madman.
There seems to be a shadow of those who are very experienced and determined to cause harm to Russia, seen behind him.
I also want to remind everyone about this diabolic, yet symbolic, coincidence! The newly built Crimean Bridge is also called ‘The Kerch Bridge’ because it for the first time ever connects Russia mainland with Crimea, through Kerch. Ukraine and US have been in a state because of the successful completion of the Crimean Bridge, which completely resolves the problem with Russian communication with Crimea, bypassing Ukraine. Kiev has been frantically trying to sabotage the Crimean Bridge and the US/EU/West have been working hard on sabotaging Crimea and Russia.
See my FT posts:
Although the real reason for the US/West’s anti-Russian sanctions is much deeper, Crimea was used as the first pretext for the sanctions in 2014. Per my 2014 predictions: sanctions never worked and were even beneficial to Russia in most cases! Therefore, those who want to harm Russia at all cost had to seek out new methods. In this regard: qui bono from this terrorist act? From Skripals and doping scandals, to the attempts at false flags in Syria and the set up of the Russian jet by Israel, QUI BONO?
QUO BONO from the two recent emergencies with the Russian ISS module and the latest with Russian manned space craft, which both thankfully ended without casualties?
QUI BONO from stopping Russia’s progress?
Since 2014 FSB has successfully prevented hundreds of terrorist acts in Crimea alone and in Russia in general; none of the past terror attempts have been successful. The details of most we’ll never find out, and only the tip of the iceberg will ever be revealed. All prior terrorist acts have been nipped in the bud and terrorist wannabes arrested. All of the arrested turned out to either be from Ukraine (Kiev junta army or SBU operatives) or Central Asians (followers of ISIS and similar organizations).
RIP the victims. condolences to Russia, Crimea and families.
Vladimir Putin: “I’d like to inform you that several hours ago a tragic event occurred in the Russian city of Kerch. A bomb was planted and exploded, killing several people and injuring many more. Dear friends. In memory of those who were killed, I would like to observe a moment of silence.”
Second unexploded bomb found inside Kerch Polytechnical College. The 18-year-old perpetrator shot fellow students and teachers, and exploded a bomb. He also had another bomb planted, which he was unable to use. At least 21 dead and scores injured. All that by one 18-year-old? Watched too many violent American movies? Or is it much worse?
First videos released on the tragedy:
People are currently gathering in front of the Kerch Memorial located next to the Eternal Flame in Alexander Garden. They are bringing flowers, mostly carnations, as well as vigil lamps. The activists of the Young Guard were among the first to come here. The young compassionate people are about the same age as Vladislav Roslyakov, who’s supposedly responsible for today’s massacre at Kerch Polytechnical College.

Great news for Russia and Crimea, and for anyone who’s asked me whether it was a good idea to relocate to Crimea! The new, but already legendary Crimean Bridge (aka, the Kerch Bridge), opens to heavy freight traffic! Train traffic next!
Hundreds of long-distance truckers tested the Kerch Bridge. Last night, the bridge connecting Crimea and Kuban was opened to freight traffic. Crimea and Sevastopol now have another route to deliver food and goods from continental Russia. Its importance and reliability can’t be overstated, especially with winter approaching.

These videos from today confirm exactly what I predicted in my original report:
And earlier today’s new post: Why the French Frigate Misfired on Syria? (Ask Lada)
I said that 1: Israel is very interested in having Russia on her good side, and it’s crucial for Israel to have a rapport with Russia. 2. Russia will be covering the skies above Syria, especially around Russia’s interests, which is most of Syria, and 100 km radius around Syria. This means no-fly zones and S-400s.
And after I said all that, this is what comes out of the Russian corridors of power today:
The largest military exercise in the history of modern Russia, Vostok-2018, has concluded. The participants in these maneuvers are returning to their home bases. Almost 300,000 soldiers and more than 1,000 airplanes, helicopters, drones, and armored vehicles, as well as about 100 ships, took part in the exercise.
Judge for yourself if these two are ‘Russian spies’ from the dreaded non-existent GRU (Hint: UK is so behind they don’t even know GRU doesn’t exist for at least 6 years).
OR, are Theresa May and the UK government simply pathological liars and crazed Russophobes?
Here is the whole version of the interview of RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan with the two Russians whom London suspects of poisoning the Skripals.
