I’ve told you about this phenomenon in my previous post on the Calibrations of Ukraine. And here’s a confirmation. People in Ukraine watching Russia2018 World Cup and cheering for Russia broke all records. It is especially striking since Kiev junta/Poroshenko announced the ‘boycott’ of the Russian World Cup. Pay attention to the cheering for the Russian team scene in Odessa at 3:20.
**Per Kiev’s intelligence (SBU), Odessa is next to secede. More here: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS: Ukraine, Poroshenko and Ukrainian Army (with many important updates & predictions)

That WAS inspired, even for non-fans like myself: Underdog Russia beats Spain! #Russia2018 #WorldCup
Even I, who isn’t into football (soccer), watched and re-watched the highlights of this match. #Russia2018 World Cup isn’t only the best organized championship in FIFA history, as even the Russophobic British and Swedish MSM are forced to admit. It also has a distinction of being the most memorable rollercoaster Mundial ever. Most favorites are out, including former world champions and celebrity teams such as Germany, Spain, Portugal and Argentina.
Meanwhile, World Cup’s biggest ever underdog, Russia, is proceeding to quarterfinals for the first time in 32 years, where Russia hasn’t been since the Soviet period. The game with one of the favorites, Spain, ended in Russia’s victory after the penalty round. But it could’ve ended sooner and even more convincingly in Russia’s favor if one of the Russian players didn’t commit a silly mistake, resulting in own goal accidentally putting Spain ahead. Yet, Russia not only managed to even out the score, but get ahead against the Spanish monsters team, referred to as the ‘red fury.’
Russia, rated 70, gained 60 points as a result – third largest rating advance in FIFA’s history.
Russia meets Croatia, who is also playing very well, in quarterfinals, and may the best team win. Even if Russia doesn’t win in quarterfinals, the Spain-Russia game will have made history. There is a talk of building a statue to the goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, who instantly became international celebrity after several major saves, including deflecting that famous last Spanish penalty shot with his leg. The whole team performed very well and a big credit goes to the new Russian coach Stanislav Cherchesov, who turned out to be a master strategist. You might say that finally Russians guessed correctly with the national team’s coach. For years, they tried to hire foreign celebrity coaches, to whom crazy astronomical sums were paid, only to get disappointed in their performance. Recently Russians made a decision not to hire foreigners as coaches any more.
Igor Akinfeev final spectacular save, which gave Russia the win over Spain, World Cup 2018
Oh yes, believe it or not, before this game FIFA rated Akinfeev as the worst player on Russian team.
Celebrations in Russia following big win:
I am not a big football (soccer) specialist, although during this FIFA World Cup we all have suddenly become experts, lol. I freely admit I’m not.
But what I am rather an expert in is geopolitics, including the geopolitics of sport. And of course, the big one: the Great Earth Shift. (Granted, Russia continues stressing — rightly so — that World Cup 2018 is far and away from politics, but honestly, come on…)
There are four major geopolitical and Earth Shifting questions:
- Why is Russia hosting World Cup 2018?
- When can we expect the usual Russophobic noise from the US/UK to begin that Russian team is ‘doping’?
- Will Ukraine/Poroshenko dare to attack Donbass during World Cup?
- What will be the consequences/benefits of this World Cup for Russia and the Earth Shift?
We’ve discussed and I answered in detail question number 3 in this Patreon report: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS: Ukraine, Poroshenko and Ukrainian Army (with many important updates & predictions)
And the rest?… Stay tuned for it!
I’ve selected these video guides around Moscow from two of my fave YT travel video bloggers, a Brit Graham Phillips and an American Nadine. They are very different in style, but they both know their stuff. Both of these vids get my nod of approval. They possess the right spirit and energy, and they are something I can recommend. Check’em out.
1: Moscow – A Guide To! (2018) – Москва – (2018) – Обзор! By Graham Phillips, British journalist and truth-teller, famous for his eye-witness reports from Donbass front lines and credited with helping to awaken the English-speakers to the truth about the war in Donbass and Kiev junta’s real nature.
Graham bought an apartment in Odessa just before the Maidan and Kiev coup. After 2014 he was unable to return to the city, where his life would have been in danger from the junta regime and ukro-nazis descended in numbers on Odessa. He later got word that ukro-nazis took over his Odessa apartment, expropriated it in other words, in his absence.
This video is a pleasant, lighthearted view of Moscow in the run-up to World Cup 2018.
2. what MOSCOW RUSSIA is REALLY like. From a young American’s (novice) perspective, but she means well and a nice footage. Also just to point out, Nadine made this film at the height of anti-Russian hysteria in the West, when everything was full of Russia-bashing, with distorted views throughout (well, except Futurist Trendcast and a few other good publications, of course). This in itself deserves respect.
During #Russia2018 World Cup I’ll post some of the videos from host cities by legendary British journalist and Russia/Donbass supporter Graham Phillips. This one is about Sochi.
Stereotypes Crushed by #Russia2018 World Cup: Neat Senegal Fans Clean up Their Mess; Swiss Fans Urinate in Public; Russians and Brits Hug #ЧМ2018
Yesterday a shocking video of the Swiss fans urinating in public was circulated.
I like this new video much better: Senegal fans neatly clean up their mess after match is over. HIGH CLASS!
Russians and Brits hug after Russia scores 3:1 against Egypt – AND THAT’S CLASS TOO!
With much incredulity, British fans also noted how warmly they were met by Russian hosts in Volgograd, where the British team played their first match. Although, due to the negative media coverage in the UK and the scare tactics of the British political establishment, very few British fans showed up. And, I am sorry to say, there apparently were a few English fans who threatened to ‘make WWIII for Russians in Volgograd!’ (Link to source.)
And to close this post, an important moment in history to remember!
Volgograd used to be known as Stalingrad. Even schoolchildren in the UK would (hopefully) know about the Battle of Stalingrad during WWII. But what most people don’t know is that the historic grassroots drive to help the defenders of Stalingrad took place in 1942 in the city of Coventry, UK. Men and women took part in gathering money and resources and donating what they could, and even children sold their toys and clothes to help out. They gathered over 4 thousand pounds (over 200,000 pounds today). As a result, Coventry and Stalingrad became the world’s first sister-cities (Russian: goroda pobratimi), starting the global sister-city (gorod pobratim) phenomenon.
Many sister-cities would later appear all over the world. Today, Coventry and Volgograd remain sister-cities – the very first of their kind. Too bad the British so easily forget that.
Selfie with Putin: Presidents and Princes from S. Arabia to Paraguay, but Zero Western Leaders (2018 FIFA World Cup)
Putin – superstar. Let me take a selfie with him while I can. That was probably what the president of Lebanon was thinking. Putin didn’t mind.
On video below: a crowd of excited presidents, PMs and princes after watching live the opening World Cup 2018 match between Russia and S. Arabia.
All CIS leaders are there (naturally, except Ukraine’s Poroshenko) and Putin is using the opportunity for an informal Commonwealth meeting.
Silly me! I should’ve known: the promise of an interesting football (soccer) match is a fabulous pretext to lure the male half of the species to any event, lol. 😉
That said, four countries announced that their ‘leaders’ would boycott Russian World Cup, and these are: Ukraine, Poland, UK and Iceland. This is no joke, they are boycotting the games in all seriousness, although they fail to notice they are in fact isolated, not the other way around.
Although this wasn’t a joke, some good jokes do come to mind in this regard…
Despite the British politicians beating in hysterics, the UK team still arrived, and Russians are treating them with the usual utmost hospitality. But I heard the British players were afraid to try the traditional Russian karavai bread, presented to each team as an ancient Russian hleb and sol’ (bread and salt) welcoming ceremony. Rumor has it they thought Russians added ‘novichok’ to the dough, lol. Other teams had no problem eating the welcoming karavai – it must be a UK-specific problem. (Just to clarify, in case someone missed it: this was a JOKE).
Jokes aside, as a result of the karavai fiasco, UK team became a target of jokes among other teams. Generally, the UK team somehow, in a very bizarre Inverted Collapse kind of way, is reminding me of the old Soviet paranoia. When Soviet people were allowed abroad, they would look around suspiciously, afraid to try anything and seeing spies everywhere. It’s sad how far the West has degraded. And that’s the GREAT EARTH SHIFT, baby!
TIP: By the way, when in Russia, if you are presented with a welcoming karavai, aka, hleb and sol’, it is a great honor. It is polite to pinch off and try a small piece of bread, dipping it in a bit of salt. It’s considered very rude to refuse, but I guess the Brits missed the memo.
An interesting echo to my previous big report: Armenia Maidan Paradox: Why New Pro-West Armenia Government Pledged Allegiance to Russia & Eurasian Union? :
Armenian PM Pashinyan is also in Moscow, second time in less than a month. So is president on Moldova Igor Dodon (I’ll talk about him and Moldova’s shift next week on Patreon), along with other CIS/EAU leaders. Among other things, Pashinyan wrote on his Facebook that Putin introduced him to the president of Azerbaijan, which he values highly. As I wrote in the above-linked report, Azerbaijan and Armenia are in a state of cold, and at times hot, war over Nagorny Karabakh, with no diplomatic relations. Only Russia can help re-establish peace. Before Putin interfered as a peacemaker, the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan weren’t on speaking terms.
INTERESTING PRELIMINARY STATS FOR RUSSIA 2018 WORLD CUP:
11 Russian cities will host the games throughout the month. New, slick and cool infrastructure has been built in each city, including airports, stadiums, sports complexes, hotels, parks, restaurants, river cruises and more. The new FIFA president already announced that this is the best World Cup in the entire history of the event. Comparing Russian World Cup 2018 to previous World Cup 2016 in France: beautiful modern cities, great organization and well-behaved fans vs. riots, crime and mess.
The largest group of fans comes from… the United States. World Cup 2018 tickets have been sold to the US fans: 92,000. Who said that soccer isn’t popular in America? Perhaps it matters who’s hosting it?
English subs – Various world leaders flock to Moscow, but no Western leaders?.. Must be a coincidence — NOT

Generally, I am happy to note that the #Skripal poisoning false flag (which was designed to trigger Russian World Cup boycott) and other #DarkState attempts to sabotage #Russia2018 World Cup failed.
Tourist Boom Headed for Nizhny Novgorod: River Cruises and Front Row Seats For the Action #Russia2018 #EarthShift
When I first visited Nizhny Novgorod years ago, the view from the hills of Nizhny’s Kremlin took my breath away. Been to more than 30 countries, but I’ve never seen such a spectacular river view. Centuries ago the placement of the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin fortress was chosen strategically, at the confluence of two great Russian rivers Oka and Volga. Today, all this is a beautiful open air museum, which delights the eye. Surrounded by quiet Russian nature and spectacular old architecture, the glorious view down to the merger of two rivers makes for a world class panorama.
Hoping to be back to Nizhny Novgorod soon!
