Re-posting this article from Stanislav as a whole!
Stanislav Sokolov, May, 2019:
In 2015 I translated Georgij Zotov’s article Repentance of Berlin. After 70 years, the Germans have an unambiguous attitude towards the Soviet victory.
This year it elicited the following comment:
LaRock on March 6, 2019 at 19:50 said:
The war is over stop punishing Germany
To which I replied:
Stanislav on March 12, 2019 at 20:02 said:
This comment should be addressed to the USA, who are still occupying and punishing Germany. If you read the article, you’d see that it’s about remembrance and reconciliation.
However, a better reply would have been a translation of an even earlier article by Zotov, one from 2013. I am translating it below, followed by a translation of two reader comments from AiF and my thoughts on them and what Zotov wrote in one particular paragraph.
Today, with racism and calls to war and genocide being the norm on the pages of the Western MSM (“racism” is a common-root synonym of “russophobia”) and the number of the Western troops and war hardware right on the Russian border being the highest since the June of 1941, it is time to remember. For while the West is collectively shrugging off 1941-1945 as “just another invasion of Russia” and preparing for a new one, Russia remembers, watches closely and prepares to defend its land once more.
In this today’s context remembrance is the key to preventing another invasion of Russia by the West, and prevent this time hundreds of millions people being killed – both defenders, attackers and bystanders…
Argumenty i Fakty, 05.05.2013
“AiF” correspondent talked in Germany with a lot of people, including the grandson of Rudolf Hess. And found out that the Victory Day is respected, but most residents of Germany do not know how many lives we lost in The War.
The 15-year-old Gunther suddenly had a seizure – an hour after the start of the tour. He fell to his knees beside the barracks and began to sob, smearing tears on his cheeks. A crowd gathered around the boy. Someone from his high school was calling on a cellphone, someone searched the pockets for pills. “Why?!” Gunther shouted. “How could the Germans do THIS to people?! Do we even deserve forgiveness?”

Nervous breakdowns of German teenagers in the ex-concentration camp of the SS Dachau near Munich are quite common. Despite this, a visit to the memorial is included in the compulsory school curriculum for high school. Children are shown the crematorium ovens, where tens of thousands of prisoners burned, gas chambers and photos of savage experiments of SS doctors. “It is necessary in order for this not to happen again,” the Museum employee told me. “After all, the worst of evils is forgotten over time.” That’s, probably, the case. According to polls, 80% of Germans now do not know that their grandfathers killed 27 million people in the USSR…
“Land of ice and snow”
“What do I think about the Victory Day? Oh, the Russians seem like mysterious heroes from science fiction films to me. That’s, probably, how the people, who overturned Hitler should appear. Many Germans still do not understand why Germany decided to fight with you. We have much in common as peoples – take, for example, at least a love for sausages and beer!»
73-year-old lawyer Rolf Clement was a child when the war began. His cousin, an officer of the Wehrmacht, froze to death in Stalingrad. He says, there can be no hard feelings: “We attacked, you defended. Fair enough.” But Rolf has a different attitude towards the Americans and the British: “In the Summer of 43, their aircraft completely burned Hamburg, killing 42 thousand people. Is this the right kind of war?” The Germans often emphasized in the interviews: Hitler was a monster, but they also had hard times when he was in power. They remember the death of Paulus’s army, the bombing of the cities, and the fall of Berlin. They are well aware of the Holocaust and the millions of Jews killed in concentration camps. However, the inhabitants of Germany do not know much about the seas of blood, which flooded the Soviet Union.
“For the Germans,” says historian Gerhard Büchlein “Russia is a country of ice and snow, where “General Winter” froze poor boys dressed in a uniform with a swastika. But in Germany they shy to argue on the topic that the Wehrmacht and the SS perpetrated on the occupied territory of the USSR. On TV and in press they do not forget to mention: only 6 thousand soldiers (from 100 thousand taken as POWs in Stalingrad) have returned home. However, few people know that 3 million Soviet prisoners of war were tortured in the SS concentration camps. We are horrified by the allied air raids – 600 thousand Germans buried alive under the rubble of buildings in Berlin, Dresden, Regensburg. And we have no idea that exactly the same number of people died from hunger and shelling because of the siege of Leningrad.”

Munich (like Hamburg) was also bombed, though less so. Some “significant places” of the Third Reich survived, but then they were destroyed by the Germans themselves. For example, a demolished pub “Burgerbraukeller”, where Hitler pushed speeches (for the avoidance of pilgrimage for neo-Nazis). The man I’m interviewing is taking me downtown.
“You know,” I say to my companion. “If my grandfather had seen us, he would not have liked it.”
“Hmm,” he says in reply. “And mine even less so. I’m sitting next to a Russian!”
“Did we kill so many?!»
My grandfather was a Soviet military pilot, was shot down in late 1944 and remained in captivity until the German surrender. The grandfather of my interlocutor, 34-year-old engineer Wolf Hess, was Hitler’s Deputy for the party, obergruppenführer Rudolf Hess. Wolf himself is anti-fascist and sincerely believes that May the 9th is the liberation of his country from dictatorship. “I want to know,” he asks. “If I come to Russia, will I have any difficulties?” “Of course not,” I say. “Even those who fought forgave the Germans.” Wolf nods: “I never felt that the Russians were our enemies. And… how many civilians died in the USSR?” I answer him – about 18 million. Executions of hostages, mass executions in Babi Yar, punitive actions, automated suffocator machines in Krasnodar. Wolf pales. “Really that many?!»
This phrase is one that I often hear in Germany. “Do you want to see photos on the Internet?” I enquire. “There are SS men posing next to the mountains of corpses. There are thousands of pictures in the archives.” My companion is lost in thought. “We rarely talk about it,” he sighs. “The main theme of the atrocities of the Nazis is Holocaust.”
In my opinion, we should not forget the Holocaust. It’s the insane destruction of an entire nation, from babies to old people. Another thing – it turns out that repentance for the atrocities of the German army is very selective. Films, talk shows and TV shows are devoted to one fact, while the others are kept under wraps. Even in Austria, in a town near the former SS Mauthausen concentration camp, when I asked passers-bys about who had been killed in the barracks, the opinions are divided. “Jews, I think,” said one man. “Communists,” remembered the second. No one named the Russians, but 39% of the prisoners of Mauthausen were Soviet prisoners of war. The image of the Eastern front in the thinking of modern Germans is the snow, the horrors of storming of the burning Berlin and the the soldiers in Stalingrad, devoid of human appearance. Marking May the 9th as the day of the defeat of the Third Reich, Germany still did not realize the scale of the victims among the population of the USSR. No, we don’t need to be apologized to endlessly. It would be nice to just remember…

One of the students, who arrived in Dachau in a group with Gunther, talked to me while his classmate was given a sedative. “You are from Moscow? Must be a big city. But I don’t even know – were the Germans in Moscow during the war?” “A lot of them,” I said to the boy. “They built a bunch of houses around the “Forum” cinema, helped to build Moscow State University, restored the factories”. “So they were prisoners?” the boy was embarrassed. “Oh… excuse me for asking.” “No problem,” I smiled. “But now you know the truth.”
The following line in Zotov’s article:
“Even those who fought forgave the Germans.”
sparked righteous anger with two of the AiF readers, resulting in the following comments, which I think are important to translate:
Alksander Stepanko, 08.05.2013:
I didn’t fight [in that war]… born in 1957. Comrade Zotov! Who gave You the right to speak for everyone!? How can we forgive the torturers?! … the killed, buried alive, perished 27 million !!!…. How can this be forgiven?! Did you even understand what you wrote?!
Alla Rybkina, 11.02.2015:
I am from 1949 and neither I nor my children will ever forgive the GERMANS, they buried my grandmother and her children alive in a huge pit of, and forced my grandfather to dig them in, he was Polish. My mother miraculously survived. And my mother-in-law lost all her teeth in the Blockade when she was 30, but rescued two daughters. How can this be forgiven??????????????.
These are very powerful testimonials, and one can collect millions of such testimonials throughout the country that once was USSR. I think, however, that neither Zotov nor these commentators are right. Forgiveness cannot be bestowed upon a Nation as a whole – it can be given to the actual German perpetrator of the war crimes. But what they did cannot be forgiven nor forgotten. The contemporary Germans, the young and those who never fought in that war – there is nothing to forgive them for. We can only hope to build common relations, remember and ensure that the atrocities of WWII are never repeated. Together.
But those Germans who in 1941-1945 came to Russia to kill and conquer, those who inspired them, like Hitler, and those who financed them, like Henry Ford and grandfather of two American presidents – Bush, those Western powers (Britain, France among others) who during the Munich Conspiracy of 1938 gave their active blessing to the start of WWII, thinking that it would not touch them, but would only become a battering ram against the USSR (much like the 2014 neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine).
These are the forces deserving the righteous anger of the Russian people, not the Germans as a whole. It should also be remembered that many Germans themselves perished while trying to fight and stall the rise of Nazism.

Flashmob in the front square of Leningradsky Vokzal – Leningrad Train Station, Moscow, Russia. A great 5 min glimpse of the real Moscow!
Song: Electrichka from Moscow (electrichka is Russian/Soviet electric train, usually travels short distances to suburbia or countryside). This non-polluting and efficient train was invented many years ago in the USSR and it is one of the most popular modes of transportation, along with trams, trolleybuses and metro. Way ahead of the ‘hybrid cars’ and solar panels in the West…

UkraineShiftUnderway Report! Defying Kiev, Ukraine Presidential Candidate Meets in Moscow with PM Medvedev
IN A SURPRISE MOVE PM MEDVEDEV MEETS WITH UKRAINE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, DEFYING KIEV
The second surprise: on March 22, Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev and head of Gazprom Alexey Miller met with Viktor Medvedchuk, who is widely considered the most ‘pro-Russian’ of all active politicians in Ukraine today, and with Yury Boiko, Ukraine presidential candidate, who positions himself as pro-Russian-speaking candidate of the south and east.
Left to right: Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller, PM Dmitry Medvedev, Yury Boiko, Viktor Medvedchuk, Moscow, 3/22/19
Here is this news as part of the 60 Minut discussion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUhHJDHX2Yc
Boiko, as I wrote in a previous report on Ukraine elections (see links below), is in 4th-5th position in the polls. Together with Medvedchuk, popular politicians from Dnepropetrovsk brothers Vilkul (both openly pro-Russian-language), and oligarch Levochkin, they created a new party called ‘Za Ghittia’, which in Ukrainian means ‘for life.’ Other two very prominent founding members of this alternative political force, Rabinovich and Muraev, recently had a squabble with the rest and left, thus weakening and splintering the electoral base of the party. This accounts for a relatively low polling numbers. But it must be stressed that polls are very likely falsified in Ukraine, anyway.

- UKRAINE ELECTIONS REPORT! Poroshenko’s End, Yulia Timoshenko & Dark Horse Zelensky!
- Also a very revealing big report on Patreon: Russia, Belarus & Ukraine Today: Striking Comps: Politics, Leaders, Economies, Oligarchy, Sovereignty
Medvedchuk is considered the most prominent and well-known name among all those I mentioned above. He is also considered an honest, beyond reproach politician by those who are for friendship between Russia and Ukraine. But pro-Poroshenko junta members and ukro-nazis brand him as ‘Putin’s stooge.’ In reality, he likely only met Putin once or twice. I mentioned Medvedchuk a number of times before.
Since 2014 Medvedchuk has participated in Minsk process with a humanitarian mission, negotiating mutual return of Ukraine-Donbass POWs, and he became widely respected for this. I also have to note that of all active Ukraine politicians, he is the highest calibrated. His calibrations are on the 280 level, NEUTRALITY. This alone says a lot. Just compare that to Poroshenko, whose world’s lowest head of state QC is at 40, GUILT, as calibrated in my new book.
Interesting! The names such as Medvedchuk and Boiko are typical Ukrainian names. Levochkin and Rabinovich are Jewish. The brothers Vilkul are Moldavian. Of the names mentioned above, young politician Evgeny Muraev is the only Russian-Ukrainian. Yet, these are all the people who position themselves as those who defend the rights of the Russian-speaking people in Ukraine! This again tells us how complex the spread is. There are Russians in Ukraine who sold out and became ukro-nazis or Poroshenko’s stooges. Case in point: current foreign minister of Ukraine, Klimkin, who grew up and went to school in Russia. amazon.com/…book/dp/B07NZCQYLD/ref=sr_1_2
As with everything, it’s not about last names or nationalities: it’s about people’s core belief systems, memory, ideals and yes, it’s about calibrations!
The meeting with Medvedev, per reports, centered around the fact that Gazprom may offer Ukraine the 25% off discount on gas, plus a guarantee of some percentage of transit to continue flowing through Ukraine after Nord Stream-2 is built.
Russian side stipulated that it will happen provided two factors:
1. Next president can be reasoned with, which means Poroshenko is out. (Russia will never recognize Poroshenko, if he manages to win – consider this my prediction!)
2. Ukraine pipe is managed cooperatively by Naftogaz-Ukraine and Russian Gazprom. Boiko, as ex-Naftogaz CEO, is in good position to negotiate.
So, is it any wonder that according to Gallup polls:
70% of Ukrainians do not believe elections will be honest.
Ukraine also holds the world’s most dubious record: only 9% of the population support and trust its government and elites. This is the world’s lowest number.
Both the Russian passports for Donbass leak and Medvedev/Miller – Boiko/Medvedchuk meeting are harbingers of BIG CHANGE in Ukraine!
As you recall, in 2014 I predicted that Ukraine will slowly turn back to Russia, and that Russia will never attack or invade Ukraine, as it was called on to do by so many. Instead, I said that Russia will slowly and carefully re-mold the situation in Ukraine.
I also said that the timing is contingent upon several things, including the complete destruction of Ukraine’s economy (sorry) and upon the end of construction of the pipelines around Ukraine, namely, Nord Stream-2 and TurkStream. Once the pipelines are complete, Ukraine becomes a lot less valuable to the US because Germany, Austria and the rest of EU, not to mention Russia, won’t be manipulated any more via the Ukraine gas transit blackmail. This time is nearing.
The great news – both events could be first harbingers of the Ukraine shift! But it’ll take some time longer to get the shift really going. It’ll be slow, but it’ll happen.

THREE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE AND TOUCHING RUSSIAN SONG FLASHMOBS!
A NEW SERIES OF POSTS! It’ll run between March and May 2019 on FuturisTrendcast, between the Crimea Re-unification anniversary and Victory Day. In this series I’ll post various remarkable and uplifting Russian photos, videos, clips, songs and flashmobs. Many may be surprising and truly remarkable. All – worthy of attention.
I want it to be uplifting, hopeful and positive. We already have several posts in this category:
REMEMBER THAT LEGENDARY RUSSIAN SONG FLASHMOB?..
Two years ago a giant flashmob spread like fire across borders. It started in Zaporozhie, Ukraine, where local students performed an old Soviet/Russian song ‘My Native Street’ from the legendary 1950s blockbuster film, Spring on Beyond-the-River Street (aka, Spring on River Street).
This was Zaporozhie flashmob that started it all:
Almost immediately, despite prosecution of the Kiev government and ukro-nazis, the flashmob spread to Odessa, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk and Kiev. The famous Russian/Soviet songs were performed in train stations and they began appearing on the Internet. Then Moscow decided to send a return hello to Ukraine by performing two Ukrainian songs at the Kiev Train Station.
It became known as the Train Station Flashmob, or the Russian Song Flashmob, or the Friendship Flashmob.
Then besieged by Kiev, Donbass joined in with some very powerful performances that spoke of courage, hope and memory no one can take away.
Very powerful: Donetsk flashmob – theme song from the legendary Soviet film ‘Officers’:
Wherever there were no train stations, people performed in bus terminals. In the small village of Snezhnoe, Donbass, people gathered at such small bus station to perform the legendary Soviet song, ‘On the Unnamed Altitude.’ The old Soviet song narrates the heroic act by a company of the Red Army soldiers during WWII. They defended the ‘unnamed altitude’ until only three of them were left.
Very touching! If you look carefully at the Snezhnoe flashmob video, you’ll see in the beginning that legendary ‘Unnamed Altitude’, a hill located in Donbass. It shows a huge memorial park with monuments and people laying flowers to commemorate the heroism of their ancestors. Then the scene changes to show how Kiev army destroys that hill, complete with monuments. It was during Kiev junta attacks between 2014 and 2016, and more heroes died defending that same altitude. The sight of the new destruction is striking, as if Nazis suddenly were back, and not as foreign invaders but as those the Donbass people once called their neighbors, brothers and sisters.
I think this was one of the most memorable and powerful performances of the entire flashmob. Note the guy and a woman in the video wiping tears as they listen! For these people the wounds are too fresh, too real, too close…
Flashmob spread all over the former USSR and throughout the world. Within less than one year there were thousands of Russian song flashmobs. No one had done the statistics, but this completely grassroots spontaneous phenomenon must have united tens or even hundreds of thousands in dozens of countries.
One such remarkable flashmob in Vienna – in my next post. And the cool, joyful Moscow flashmob – also to follow! Plus, we’ll have a wonderful Siberian flashmob – don’t miss that one! All coming in the next few weeks!
Meantime, those who had the gift of the gab began writing poetry about this unique global flashmob. This excellent poem was written as soon as the flashmob gained traction two years ago. It became viral in its own right. Here it is in Russian – read translation below:
Назло изолгавшейся прессе – протестный рождается шквал!!!
Запели «Смуглянку» в Одессе – её подхватил весь вокзал.
И в Харькове, и в Запорожье – то «Клён» запоют, то «Весну»…
Есть то, что всего нам дороже: мы помним большую страну!
Да! Ту дорогую, святую, что мир от фашизма спасла.
И пусть русофобы лютуют, а песня надежду зажгла! …
Давайте, родные, давайте!!! Споём на Днепре! На Неве!
И «хлопцi, коней розпрягайте!» – в ответ зазвенело в Москве!
На Киевском старом вокзале, под русский лихой перепляс –
в столице «Марусю» играли, души исполняя приказ. …
Как будто опять партизаны вдруг вышли из тёмных лесов…
Не верим мы в эти Майданы, а верим в добро и любовь!
Ну что, СБУ?!! Эту песню нельзя ни поймать, ни убить.
То вера святая воскресла! Маэстро сказал: «Будем жить!!!»
Ведь мы – от рожденья артисты, а песня – народный дебют:
славянские «сепаратисты», поют «колорады», поют!!!
Поют и поют, хоть ты тресни!.. А кто запретит? – да никто!
Тут всё – и прозрачно, и честно: вот – люди, вот – песня. И что?!
ВСЕМ слышно?!! Мы рядом. Мы вместе. МЫ – дети великих отцов.
И наша бессмертная песня – примета борцов и творцов!
AND A GREAT POETIC TRANSLATION OF THE ABOVE VERSE BY OUR NEMO:
Dear all! This is my modest attempt at a poetic translation of the poem that Lada posted in this article. The last verse is not quite to my liking in that I cannot quite rhyme it in English, thus losing some of the power that it had in Russian.
The lying media spiting, a wall of protest has sprung!!!
“Smugljanka” was heard in Odessa – the whole of the station it sung.
In Kharkov and Zaporozhje they’d sing of “Maple” and “Spring”.
What for all of us dear – rememb’ring great country we lived in.
Yes! The one and the holy that saved from the Fascism the World.
Let russophobes go a’brutal, the song has given us hope..!
Come, brothers, come sing on Dnieper and sing on the Neva bank!
While in Moscow “horses a’stradling” was heard in Ukrainian back!
At the old “Kiev” train station, a lively Rus dance was seen –
In capital they played “Marusja”, harkening to the soul’s scream.
As if partisans emerging, from the darkened woods of the war…
We don’t believe in Maidans, we are for goodness and love!
Now what, SBU!?? This song, can neither be caught nor killed.
The holy faith has returned! Maestro told us – “We’ll live!!!”
We all, from our births, are performers, and song is a people’s début:
The Slavic “separatists” are singing, “colorados” they calls for naught!!!
They sing and they sing, and what will you! Who can prohibit it? None!
All transparent here, and honest – the people, the song. It’s done.
D’you ALL hear, do you!? We are close. We are united. WE are children of great forefathers.
And our song immortal is the hallmark of creators and fighters!

Scythian gold (Zoloto Skifov) from Crimean museums was on loan to Dutch museums when Kiev Maidan began. Instead of returning gold to the rightful owners when exhibit was over, the Netherlands simply kept it, whisking it away to an unknown location. It has been in limbo ever since.
As Russophobia in Europe escalates AGAIN, and as US puts more and more pressure on EU, Scythian gold’s fate may soon be decided contrary to the rights and wishes of the Crimean people by the sold-out courts of the Netherlands! I spoke about it a number of times since 2014. Here’s my original 2014 video report!

In the meantime, a small heads-up that the appeal court hearings for the fate of the Crimean Scythian gold have started in Holland, which still has not returned the artefacts to the rightful owners – the museums, which contributed to the joint exhibition! I wrote a translation of an AiF article, detailing the matter.

After they squeezed out or killed off all normal people, and after they installed in 2014 this bloodsucker, suddenly Ukraine radicals and Ukro-Nazis woke up to the truth? The latest scandal is that Poroshenko and his cronies looted the military budget of the country. Ukro-Nazis are protesting and there is talk of a new Maidan. Poroshenko had to run for his life from a recent election rally where nationalists attacked him. Nationalist radicals say they plan a major protest rally for March 16 and weekly thereafter.
Spiders are devouring each other. Best of luck to them; meantime Ukraine continues plunging into its self-created abyss…
And what did any of them expect? I and a few other sane analysts warned about all this since 2014! The result was entirely predictable and pre-determined…
A few more things…

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. 😉
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.
Vintage Soviet March 8 Posters:
‘March 8, International Women’s Day’
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!
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!’
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 🙂
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:
‘March 8 – Congrats!’ – probably the most beloved Russian cartoon character, the sweet mystical animal Cheburashka, brings flowers and cake to the little squirrel girl.
Little bear boy brings a barrel of honey to his girlfriend.
And the cute March cats, of course 😉
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.
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.
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! 😉

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!
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!
