What’s So Unusual About March 8?! International Women’s Day Special!

8 March International Women's Day

Dear women (and men too),

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

MAY ALL YOUR SACRED DREAMS AND WISHES COME TRUE!

This holiday in Russia is often also called the Day of Spring, Love and Beauty. On this day women expect to be pampered. According to the survey, this year up to 10% of the spoiled Russian women expect to get a car for March 8. ūüėČ

I find that many people in the West simply don’t get the meaning of this holiday.

HERE’s the real truth! The holiday did start in the beginning of the 20th century as a women’s rights and anti-war political movement. However, in the USSR it eventually evolved as a day of spring, flowers, relaxation and the honoring of the sacred feminine by men (at the bottom click on links to my previous posts to find out more and to see more cool images). And that’s how it’s now largely celebrated in Russia, all of post-Soviet Space and the world.

The important thing Westerners often don’t get is that Russian women get to be honored, treated with the respect, love and tenderness all women and mothers deserve, while at the same time they get to pursue careers and success in life equal to men. There is no BS ‘equality’ fights in Russia. Equality stays where it belongs: in the career and business world. But at the same time a man would still open a door or pull a chair for a woman. If you can imagine (I know it’s very hard if you live in the USA), a woman in that case would graciously say thank you, and she would NOT punch a man in the face or file a sexual harassment lawsuit! A woman would NOT perceive the man’s gallant gesture as a sign of her being considered weak, but she would accept this as a sign of her being honored and respected.

Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a positive world like this everywhere!

March 8 in Russia usually inspires poetry. Lots of businesses and organizations put out special ‘Happy March 8’ posters, often with poetic good wishes for their female employees and/or friends and family. And it all rhymes!

8-marta poem 2

This one reads:

‘Our Lovely Women, let your spring be forever, let the brooks run, let all the world’s flowers blossom just for you. Let the last snow wind take away any troubles, let the snow melting¬† bring only happiness. May your sacred dreams and wishes come true! HAPPY MARCH 8!’¬†

8-marta poem 3

This poster’s poem similarly wishes the end of any sorrows, and lots of love, joy, smiles and flowers. I am smiling just writing this ūüôā

There are free concerts on streets and special concerts on TV, as well as major holiday programs in music halls on this day. Generally, Russians loooove their songs, concerts,  and various fairs and events. When I was searching for images for this post I came across a large number of announcements for March 8 concerts in the ex-republics, such as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Latvia. It remains the holiday of choice in all those, despite attempts by the Latvian and Ukrainian authorities to ban it.

Russian children get it since they are little. Cutest Russian March 8 cartoon posters:

8 marta multik

¬†‘March 8 – Congrats!’ – probably the most beloved Russian cartoon character, the sweet mystical animal Cheburashka, brings flowers and cake to the little squirrel girl.¬†

And the cute March cats, of course¬†ūüėČ

March 8 is one of the coolest and most positive holidays, with lots of flowers and smiles. Tulips, mimosa, lily-of-the-valley, violets and lilac are the trademark flowers of this holiday. Men normally take over all the chores for the house, including cooking and cleaning, while women enjoy themselves. On this day husbands, boyfriends, fathers, sons, brothers and students honor their wives, girlfriends, sisters, daughters, mothers, grandmothers and female teachers. This is how I remember it growing up.

8 marta best mom and wife

The cake reads ‘Happy March 8’; the boy’s tee says, ‘Love my mom’; the man’s, ‘My wife’s the best.’¬†

March 8 is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a national holiday in Russia and some other post-Soviet/Russian World countries. It’s also widely celebrated in Europe, Asia and Latin America.

8-marta poem 4

If you celebrate, here’s another well-wishing March 8 poem! ‘May your life always blossom, may your children be happy and your home prosperous! Wishing you goodness, fortune & happiness!

If you live in a country where March 8 is not celebrated (that would be the Anglo-American world and a few others)…

Dear women, go pamper yourselves this weekend, celebrate YOU and the spring! Or get the men in your life to splurge on you!

Dear men, it’s a great idea to take the loved female(s) in your life out to a nice dinner this weekend, and/or buy her some nice flowers! If she asks what’s the occasion, you can say: ‘Spring is in the air!’ Or you can just tell the truth: ‘Lada says so,’ and show her this article! ūüėČ

HAPPY MARCH 8!

Russia, Belarus & Ukraine Today: Striking Comps: Politics, Leaders, Economies, Oligarchy, Sovereignty

READ EXCLUSIVE COMPARATIVE REPORT PREVIEW for:

New Book Addendum:¬†RUSSIA,¬†BELARUS & UKRAINE TODAY –¬†

Striking Comps: Politics, Leaders, Economies, Oligarchy, Sovereignty!

This exclusive report is a compliment to my new book, available for a limited time to all my Patrons, starting at $5+ contribution! As a Part of Quantum Calibrations CORE FEATURE, It’ll switch to $10+ content by Mid-March!

JOIN Lada Ray Patreon TODAY to read and enjoy over 300 articles and posts!

THIS IS NOT AN EXCERPT! 

IT’S A BRAND NEW COMPARATIVE REPORT, DRAWING ON THE BOOK AND EXPANDING ON IT!¬†

In my new book Geopolitical & Geo-Economic Quantum Calibrations (ebook and paerback), among many other things, you will read about peer groups and peer-to-peer comparisons.

And in my free Sunday article, UKRAINE ELECTIONS REPORT, expanding on my new book, I have talked about Ukraine and how much it deteriorated since 2014.

The book makes all the developments taking place in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, together with over 100 other countries, territories, governments and world organizations, clear through calibrations and a unique blend of geopolitical, Earth Shift and multidimensional analysis.

In this exclusive post I want to go further! Let’s compare the three formerly very close sisterly republics, which have been developing as separate, yet still very much linked states. Just pure factual comparisons in this article, along with some multidimensional stuff (please see the extensive calibrations of all three, together with expanded chapters, in the book)!

Let’s find out how exactly and why a massive divergence between the three occurred in the past 27 years.

Sisters: Russia and Ukraine (and Belarus, too)

I think this article makes for a very educational, and almost mystical, case study. By reading it in conjunction with the book’s calibrations, you’ll get a full and truly fascinating picture of evolution – or when applicable, devolution – of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus!

LET’S DIVE IN!

You’ll find that EURASIA/Russian World/Post-Soviet Space¬†is grouped as a separate segment in the book. Historically the closest peers in it have been Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Included are expanded chapters analyzing all three.

I still remember how it was during the USSR days: there were differences, of course, but we all were very close. To this day, people throughout the post-Soviet Space and beyond listen to the same Russian music, watch same Russian movies and read same Russian books. They speak the same language, celebrate same holidays, even if in some places they are denied their birthright. They root for the same athletes. Their mentality is still very close, and many of them have relatives and friends across borders.

Russian and Ukrainian athletes are friends, no matter what (many such pics from 2016 Brazil Olympics appeared on the Internet, in defiance of the Kiev junta). 

The map of the USSR

When you read the book and this post, pay attention to how different these former sister republics of the USSR have become since its collapse! The divergence in directions of development, the differences in their lists of accomplishments and the gaps in calibrations are so epic that it almost seems unreal.

(Next closest to the three sister republics are Moldova and Kazakhstan, whose stories you’ll also read in the book!)

COMPARE RUSSIA, BELARUS & UKRAINE TODAY, 2019!

To start with, as a striking comparison from the book I am posting Current Calibrations (QC & CHI) for all three countries as a whole and calibrations of each leader! In the book each of the three boasts its own expanded article, analysis and predictions, together with a full battery of calibrations for country, leader, economy, army, solvency and sovereignty. The Russian chapter also includes bonus calibrations and interpretations for Moscow, which is one of the world’s highest calibrated capitals today, and for Russian PM, Dmitry Medvedev, the world’s highest-calibrated PM.

You will find huge and eye-opening gaps between the three countries’ values. These differences will be confirmed by the detailed comparative analysis in this brand new report!

QUOTES:

The US in the past century has been raking in that bad karma like there is no tomorrow,while payback is still to come. Speaking of the end of WWII and the nuclear bombing…

There are many layers of lies in the propaganda Nancy described in her comment, which the US was spinning at the time. I bet no one ever mentioned in US history books or MSM that in fact the Japanese army and the Japanese Empire as a whole capitulated not because of the US bombing, but because Russians, not Americans, were at the time delivering a crushing defeat to Japan’s Quantung Army. This was also known as the Manchurian Strategic Operation, 9-20 of August, 1945.

HIROSHIMA/NAGASAKI ATOMIC BOMBING: Dates: Aug 6, 1945 ‚Äď Aug 9, 1945

During the final stage of World War II, the United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively. The United States dropped the bombs after obtaining the consent of the United Kingdom, as required by the Quebec Agreement. Wikipedia

SOVIET MANCHURIAN STRATEGIC OPERATION: Dates: Aug 9-20, 1945

Wikipedia: Manchzhurskaya Strategicheskaya Nastupatelnaya Operatsiya) or simply the Manchurian Operation (–ú–į–Ĺ—Ć—á–∂—É—Ä—Ā–ļ–į—Ź –ĺ–Ņ–Ķ—Ä–į—Ü–ł—Ź), began on 9 August 1945 with the Soviet invasion of the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo. It was the last campaign of the Second World War…

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.

Globalist Banker BRAGS About Sucking Russia Dry; Begs Trump For Safe Harbor From Justice

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.

New Ally for Russia? Putin in Singapore

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:

EARTH SHIFT PREDICTIONS: The Future of the US Dollar, Trump & Earth Shift Timing!

Astrology Predictions 2018-2025: Money, US Dollar & Banks!

Reset: Russia Returns to Cuba (Lada’s Commentary)

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.

Videos:

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:

QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS SPECIAL! Africa: Complete Continent, Current, Historic & Future Calibrations (Case Study, Four Epic Sets of Calibrations + Earth-Shifting Interpretations!)

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. ūüėČ

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:

Russian/Singaporean Relations to Hit New Level! Tech Deals and Closer Diplomatic Ties on the Table

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!

Rarely Seen Perspective on the New & Modern Moscow (Cool Travel Images from Seeker!)

FREE PUBLIC POST ON LADA RAY PATREON!

20181009_072229_001

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!

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.

T-90, Russia
Manufacturer Uralvagonzavod
Unit cost USD 2.5 million¬†in 1999, USD 2.77 ‚Äď 4.25 million in 2011 (varies by source) T-90MS:¬†USD 4.5 Million¬†in 2016

Flying T-90

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.¬†¬†

Armata tank T14

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.

Abrams tank US

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:
