“And don’t even ask Putin” – Kadyrov Calls on Russian People to Do Away with a Two-Term Presidential Run Limit

Ramzan Kadyrov

Кадыров о возможности занимать пост президента больше двух раз подряд: “Если в интересах народа нужно, почему мы не можем внести изменения? Мы не должны даже спрашивать у самого Путина! Народ должен инициировать и принять такое решение.”

Head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov on doing away with the two consecutive term limit for Russian president:

“If the interests of our people demand it, why can’t we make necessary changes? We shouldn’t even ask Putin! The People must initiate and make this decision.”

 

LADA’S P.S. Some appear confused. Kadyrov proposes to DO AWAY with the LIMIT on how many times one can run for president consecutively, running 3, 4 or more times if need be. This is the nature of a big debate in Russia at this time, anyway.

Three Seconds to Win ~ When Sport Was Honest (USSR-USA Gold Basketball, 1972 Olympics)

Warning! You may be shocked and may not believe your eyes at what you’ll see below. It may even turn your entire perception upside down, but keep reading!

Recently we’ve discussed what the sport has turned into in the past 20 or so years: REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games? In that report, of December 18, 2017, I said ‘Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz‘. There is no fairness and no hope of justice in sport at this time in our common reality. Pretty depressing, right?

For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.

True, there may be different vantage points and different interpretations of various events, and there has always been politics and geopolitics present in any Big sport.

You hear me often talk about multidimensional truths and the fact that we are transitioning into 4D. This means that everything that was a norm in 3D is changing. I would hope though, that things like honesty, honor and common decency will remain. It saddens me greatly that in our day and age these solid old notions have almost been rendered obsolete and useless. But let me assure you, they will always remain crucially important in any dimension and in any reality.

You may not believe it, but there was a time when the Olympic sport was honest, at least it made an effort to be so. And it was at the height of the Cold War. 

1972, Munich Summer Olympics. American basketball is the best in the world. In the previous 36 years the US basketball team never lost, and at that moment in history US has won 63 straight games in Olympic competitions. And no wonder. After all, basketball is an original American sport, invented by a US college professor 150 years ago, who tied two fruit baskets in a college court and offered a new sporting competition to his students.

Unexpectedly, the young Soviet basketball team makes it to the Munich Olympic finals, after beating top contenders such as Cuba, to play against the US team. Throughout the game, both USSR and US go neck to neck, at an early point the USSR even being well ahead. After that the USA gains most points back, and again both go head to head. The match is nearly over and the USA is one point ahead, after 2 penalty throws give it 2 extra points. The score is USA 50 — USSR 49. The Soviet coach takes timeout 3 seconds before the end of game.

And then, something crazy begins to happen… Read the rest of this entry

#Jumpstart2018 ~ Reader Q&A (Putin, Calibrations, Plans, The Lost History)

EDITED BRIGHT Lada Sau lge    Dear friends,

I hope you all have had a great New Year’s! It’s time to get back to reality and work. You know, in Russia the New Year statewide holiday lasts from January 1 through January 8, covering both New Year and Rozhdestvo (Russian Christmas). It used to be longer, but there were complaints from citizens regarding too much holiday! 😉

Here at FuturisTrendcast, we begin complaining even sooner and so, by January 4 we are ready to roll! This New Year 2018 I decided to begin with the #Jumpstart2018 series. It was nice to take a few days off to celebrate, but I think you all want me to re-engage as the world keeps spinning, stuff keeps happening and Earth Shift keeps developing.

This is the first post of the week-long #Jumpstart2018 series and you’ll just have to bear with me to see what surprises I decide to include in it.

THE LOST HISTORY

You all know that one of the topics I always try to talk about whenever I can is #ForbiddenHistory, falsified timelines and the Russian Truth Code.

I get a lot of emails and questions much like this one from Norway, from yesterday ~

“Since I read Anastasia by Vladimir Megre, many years ago, I have felt the Russian connection and that the history is so manipulated, and still is. I would love to hear more of the lost 1000 yrs and the Scandinavian connection to the Motherland. It has bothered me a lot and I have not found the answers as yet.”

Interesting choice of words in this comment, don’t you think? ‘Scandinavian connection to the Motherland’ that is Russia. I think the author of this comment truly and profoundly feels the forbidden truths of our origins! Incidentally, such understanding only comes to those souls who are higher-dimensional and highly calibrated, which a lot of my readers and followers are.

I already have these two related and very popular articles under Forbidden HistoryForbidden Linguistics

I also talk about that in these 3 recent interviews

 The Plane Truth ~ with Lada Ray – PTS3160 TimeMonkRadioNetwork

But these are just the beginning. I am happy to tell you that I am preparing a new major series of Earth Shift Webinars, which will address the issues of forbidden, falsified and manipulated history, the truth about the lost 1000 years (or more?) and the New Chronology, the multidimensional mysteries of Hyperborea, Atlantis, Antarctica and EurAsia, as well as the forbidden linguistics that reveals much through delicate clues hidden in plain sight. As always, I won’t rehash anyone else’s material, although homage will always be paid to interesting sources I recommend. The story you will hear will be my own, told as always from my multidimensional perspective.

Please stay tuned, official announcements coming in the second half of January!

PUTIN’S BEEN BUSY ~ AND QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS

NancyC/Seattle 

Posting link to Putin’s New Year Address to the Nation. I would be interested in Lada’s calibration of this speech. I found it full of love, unity & power. I stumbled across this link to English translation on official President of Russia site. If you’re interested you can scroll down and read about Putin’s phone conversations with Netanyahu on the first, India’s prime minister Modi on the 3rd or click around and check out his schedule. Or you can click on “documents” at the top & read gems like this one dated 12/29/17: Federal law on ratifying Agreement between Russia & Syria in extending Russian Navy’s inventory and logistics support centre area in port of Tartus. http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/56591 ..

.TWITTER NEW

Well said, Nancy — and a great question! I get a lot of questions about calibrations of various things, people and events. I know I am behind on some calibrations people have asked me to perform. Promise to do better in 2018 and post them more regularly. I might start a new Quantum Calibrations Series, actually. In what form and where — we’ll know soon.

Today, per Nancy’s New Year’s wish, I’ll calibrate Putin’s speech for you all.

I would usually post on FT Russian President’s traditional New Year’s Address, always delivered live at the stroke of midnight on Dec 31. Belatedly, here is Putin’s 2018 New Year Address.

Original Russian version

English translated version

 

QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS for Vladimir Putin’s live New Year’s Address 2018

ABBREVIATIONS:
QC = Quantum (cosmic energy) Calibration
CHI = Chi (earthly energy) Calibration

 

QC ~ 485 (HUMANITY & COMPASSION)

CHI ~  580 (HIGH CREATION)

INTERPRETATION

No surprise there, actually. Putin’s been busy presiding over Russia — the Great Balancer Earth-Shifting the world into the new reality, while doing it with care, humanity and compassion towards his citizens and compatriots, as well as making sure the humanity doesn’t plunge into a new global war. Such compassion and humanity have not always been displayed towards Russians in the past, and Russians often had to carry the load of the world on their shoulders in the past, sacrificing their well-being and needs to keep the world spinning. This is the first such successful and very careful experiment in recent history.

It is an extremely difficult endeavor indeed, as detractors, skeptics and enemies abound, but so do friends and supporters.

All about Putin, his secrets and role, and lots about Russia’s forbidden history, including fascinating mystical, multidimensional & geopolitical truths & revelations can be found in that famous

Putin on US: Hard to work with people who confuse Austria and Australia + Lada Ray on Russia/China

Russian President Vladimir Putin weighs in on illegal seizures by the US of 5 Russian diplomatic properties. Below is what he has said during the current BRICS Summit in China.

Putin and new chinese pres shake hands

As a keynote to this post, I want to emphasize that continuous aggressive actions by the US against Russia, China, N. Korea and others only push Russia and China closer together. Resolve is only solidified on the Russian and Chinese side, and other countries are ready to join in, to form and expand alliances against US on all levels. 

That coming together of Russia and China was exactly what Trump’s secret (and much smarter than him) campaign advisors urged him to prevent. But Trump has fallen off his horse, and as I predicted, has to toe the Dark State line, while wearing his deep state straitjacket, to avoid impeachment and survive his term. 

On another hand, as a result of USA’s stupidity, N. Korea’s resolve to hang on to its nuclear program is also growing. If US / Trump continue stoking the fire of the N. Korean nuclear crisis, the problem may escalate into a global catastrophe, touching many countries. 

The US establishment’s idiotic actions only expedite the day of reckoning for the US and Western system in general. Remember we discussed in Earth Shift Webinar 4 that whatever US does at this point in time will only backfire, due to its waning power and due to this being ‘The Time of Russia.’ 

All this, along with timelines and predictions, is being discussed in the EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS:

What Putin says below is exactly how Russians at large feel ~ take notice! Three main points to note in this replica by the Russian President, known for his sharp wit:

1. It’s hard to work with people who mistake Austria for Australia;

2. American people must be a truly great nation and truly great people if they can tolerate so many low-lives in power;

3. US blocked Russia from using Russian properties, which is a blatant violation of property rights. Russia will appeal this in US court ~ we’ll see just how just and effective the ‘much-lauded’ American justice system really is.

Couldn’t get any more caustic and any more clear than that. Watch:

Speaking of ‘how just and effective the ‘much-lauded’ American legal system really is,’ I calibrated the US justice system in my QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS videos, and even 2 years ago it calibrated below the minimum positive level of 200: around 180 (pride). And it calibrates even lower today! The decline is very visible:

Today QC (quantum calibration) of the US justice system is only 120 (FEAR)!

THE SHIFT: China in Syria; Iran Hosts Russia at Hamadan Base; Iraq Opens Skies to Russian Bombers

The Shift:

Iran Hosts Russian Bombers at Hamadan Base,

Iraq Opens its Skies to Russian Bombings of Terrorists in Syria

& China sends troops to Syria to assist Assad government!

Photo from RT: Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bomber at Hamadan airfield, Iran

Russian bomber at Iran Hamadan base

BREAKING NEWS! Iraq announced that it has opened free passage through its airspace for strategic Russian bombers flying to bomb Daesh terrorists in Syria. I’ve just heard this and decided to share a few of my initial thoughts.

Just a day prior, Iran announced that it now hosts Russian troops at Hamadan Base.

Moscow and Tehran sign deal allowing Russian jets to use Hamadan airbase:

First video of Russian bomber at Iran’s Hamadan & at work in Syria:

While Russia has bases in Syria, the airfields there aren’t equipped to host Russian heavy strategic bombers. Up till now, these bombers had to fly from Russian territory. By flying from Hamadan airfield and directly through Iraq territory, Russian heavy bombers cut down by 60% on fuel and flight time.

So, a true coalition to deal with ISIL is finally being formed by Russia? Shouldn’t US rejoice Russia is finally doing what USA’s fake 40+ country coalition was ‘unable’ to accomplish for two years?

US called the whole thing’ unfortunate.’ Another sign, as pointed out in ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR that US Empire is starkly out of options in the Middle East.

US goes on hypocrisy overload! US State Dept calls the Russian use of Iran base to fly anti-ISIS missions ‘unfortunate’:

Iraq has been angling to ask Russia for meaningful help with fighting ISIS on its territory since Russia’s first successes in Syria, but Iraq was forbidden to seek Russia’s help by the US. The reason Iraq is suddenly so audacious, is the one I outlined in ESR13: the US elections distraction.

As I also explained in ESR13 and in my latest piece Explosive Consequences of Putin-Erdogan St.Petersburg Meeting and Earth Shifting Changes it Foretells!, Erdogan has been insistently offering its flagship Incirlik Air Base, presently occupied by US/NATO, to Russia.

Related from Newsweek‎: U.S. nukes at Turkey airbase at risk of falling into hands of “terrorists”: report

Earlier, in February 2016 Cyprus offered its territory for the Russian jets bombing Daesh in Syria. In other words, there is a stampede to side with Russia. And this is just the beginning.

Putin never does anything just for the sake of just sending one message, even a message as important as the one of new alliance with the Iran-Azerbaijan axis. The deal with Iran was a secret part of multi-directional practical negotiations Putin conducted with Iranian president on 8/8/16 in Baku, Azerbaijan: for complete details and my analysis read ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR. As it so often happens lately, US again has been embarrassingly caught, excuse the apt American expression,  with its pants down. They simply had no idea both Iran and Iraq could pull this off, just like previously US completely missed Russia’s Syria move.

The inability to analyze and anticipate the moves by USA’s main ‘threat’ and No. 1 ‘enemy’ – their words, not mine –  is yet another sign of the slowly rotting death of the failing US Empire. 

The side benefit of mega-proportions Iran gets from hosting Russian base is that now Iran is 100% protected from any possible aggression by US and/or Israel. Obviously such Russian operation on its territory requires Russia’s cutting-edge full-scale surveillance and protections in place.

Now, Iraq next door is drooling over this. Their biggest dream is to somehow boot out the entrenched US military and host Russians on their territory instead – not much of a ‘thank you for liberating us from Saddam’ is going around those parts. Incidentally, Afghanistan government and military, as was hinted on many times, is dreaming of same.

We are going through a monumental Earth Shift. Get ready for a lot more changes you’ve never dreamed were possible!

P.S. China announced that it’s sending its troops to help Syrian government and Russians/Iranians in Syria. A true coalition is forming in front of out very eyes, and a true cooperation is afoot – something US has refused to do for years. The latest announcements by Iran, Iraq, China and Turkey are yet another loss of face for US and yet another sign of how weak and useless NATO is.

ANNOUNCEMENT!

The related subject of Ukraine’s attack against Crimea, the changes it foretells for Ukraine, Europe and the world will be discussed in the upcoming Earth Shift Report: THE CRIMEA FACTOR. The activity around Crimea and Ukraine is heating up again. Putin announced the cancellation of the previously agreed upon meeting in the Normandy4 format with Hollande, Merkel and Poroshenko on the sidelines of the Beijing G20, and called on junta/Poroshenko’s Western handlers to control their patsies. Hollande and Merkel just had an urgent telephone conversation with the scared to death Poroshenko and there are persistent rumors that Poroshenko is on his way out.

Meanwhile, what really happened during Kiev’s attacks on Crimea between August 5 and 7, 2016 and who’s really behind them? What changes does it foretell and how long have really the Kiev junta and Poroshenko got? Where is Crimea going and what’s really happening on the mysterious Russian peninsula? Are the long-anticipated changes to the status of Donbass/DLNR finally coming and how they will materialize? Will Russia punish Ukraine and how?

All this & much more will be discussed in the new ESR: THE CRIMEA FACTOR.

Stay tuned for its release next week!

Explosive Consequences of Putin-Erdogan St.Petersburg Meeting and Earth Shifting Changes it Foretells!

Addendum to ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR

EXPLOSIVE CONSEQUENCES OF THE 8/9/16 PUTIN-ERDOGAN MEETING IN ST. PETERSBURG

& THE EARTH SHIFTING CHANGES IT FORETELLS!

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan attend a news conference following their meeting in St. Petersburg

 

Putin and Erdogan met in St. Petersburg on August 9, 2016. The meeting followed the failed Turkish coup and an equally failed double attack by Ukraine on Crimea, which occurred between 5 and 7 of August. Erdogan made sure he emphasized that Russia was the first country he visited after surviving the coup. This is diplomatic speak to underline the special importance of said country.

Just prior to the meeting, Erdogan threatened to boot out US military from Turkish NATO bases and instead, let the Russians use them. A turnaround especially stunning, considering Turkey’s long-standing NATO membership and the 2015 story with Turkey shooting down the Russian Su24 and killing the Russian pilot.

Throughout ESR13, you have read all about these developments, complete with my secret intel, theories and revelations. When I released ESR13 on August 8 just before the Putin-Erdogan meeting, I also explained the staggeringly important role this meeting and Turkey-Russia negotiations would play in the ongoing Earth Shift (also see TRENDS & PREDICTIONS). Changes of great magnitude are afoot, and Erdogan-Putin meeting is one of the harbingers.

In this addendum I will tell you what really happened during the Erdogan-Putin meeting.

Erdogan repeatedly called Putin ‘esteemed Vladimir’ or ‘esteemed Russian President Putin,’ which is a very Middle Eastern way of offering an olive branch and underscoring how important the counterpart is to you. Putin, as far as I could tell, echoed that just once with ‘esteemed President Erdogan.’ No first name basis here.

In the report I predicted that Russia would be cautious with Turkey after the Su24 incident. The signal on the Turkish side was very clear: ‘we very much want to make up and be in good graces again.’ On the Russian side: ‘sure, we are all for it, and here are our immediate signs of good will, but other than that, we’ll see how you behave going forward, shall we?’

Before departing to Russia for the meeting, Erdogan made an announcement that much time was lost and that Turkey was eager to get back on track with two extremely important projects: Turkish Stream and Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant.

******
The Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (TurkishAkkuyu Nükleer Enerji Santrali) is a nuclear power plant under construction at Akkuyu, in BüyükeceliMersin Province, Turkey. It will be the country’s first nuclear power plant. In May 2010, Russia and Turkey signed an agreement that a subsidiary of Rosatom — Akkuyu NGS Elektrik Uretim Corp. (APC: Akkuyu Project Company) — would build, own, and operate a power plant at Akkuyu comprising four 1,200 MW VVER units. Engineering and survey work started at the site in 2011. The construction of the first unit was to begin in 2016, with the four units put into service in 2022–25. In 2013, Russian nuclear construction company Atomstroyexport (ASE) and Turkish construction company Ozdogu signed the site preparation contract. The official launch ceremony took place in April 2015.

******

In ESR13 we discussed the mis-adventures of South Stream and Turkish Stream, along with reasons why it was so important for the US and Germany to sabotage them.

Akkuyu is a somewhat different story. Russians gave Turkey an amazing deal as part of the pre-2015 push to get Turkey on the Russian side and away from US influence. Part of the deal was that Russia would finance and build the power plant, with profits for its exploitation deferred for a number of years. The deal was an absolute windfall for Turkey, which would greatly reduce, or eliminate all-together the long-standing energy shortage basically for free. Then Turkish treacherous actions took place, including ISIS/Daesh help and the shooting down of Su24. Throughout the meeting, Erdogan kept referring to it as ‘the unfortunate event.’

Erdogan and other Turkish officials/businesspeople arriving to Russia all confirmed how eager they were to restart both Akkuyu, whose construction was supposed to begin in 2016, and Turkish Stream. Too much time has been lost, Erdogan kept repeating like a mantra.

In other words, they acted exactly as I predicted. Meanwhile, Russia also acted as I predicted: willingly, but cautiously.

Russians agreed to restart the Akkuyu project. A large part of the negotiations was behind the closed doors, to avoid various sabotage attempts from the same parties that organized Su24 downing and the Turkish coup. I am sure many details of various deals will never be announced before the deals actually materialize into reality. However, the general intel I have received is that Russians have renegotiated the earlier deals in a more beneficial way, since Turkey came back in a greatly weakened position.

Turkey is equally eager to get back on track with Turkish Stream. “We lost a lot of time” was repeated over and over in a somewhat contrite (amazing for a Muslim country) manner. Turkey underscored how much they wanted to get back to the lucrative international project Russians practically gifted to them in 2015.

However, that’s when a bucket of cold water was dumped on Turkey. Putin has re-affirmed that Russia remained committed to Turkish Stream, but only if and when Turkey obtains written legal guarantees from the EU that Europe wants Russian gas arriving via Turkish Stream and that EU cooperation is forthcoming.

Russia has also confirmed that they will restart Turkish Stream where it concerns Turkish internal gas supply only. In other words, for now the project is scaled down to the bilateral Russia-Turkey pipeline. Turkey, as I pointed out in previous ESRs, is suffering from energy shortages and high consumer energy prices. This includes electric power, as well as fuel for heating and cooking – many still use wood-burning and very polluting old-fashioned stoves, even in big centers such as Istanbul and Ankara. Therefore, it’s a necessary project, but not of the scale and scope that was initially intended. However, the same surveys and foundation used for Turkish pipe can be used later to expand it to continue to Europe, when the landscape changes. And it will change.

Additionally, it’s actually good to advertize officially the scaled down version of the project – this may, at least in part, discourage future attacks by the US. It’s a hybrid war and rule number 1 is: don’t advertize your moves to the enemy.

As I explained in ESR13 above, the sabotage of South Stream, and later of Turkish Stream, were necessary to delay the breakup of the predatory US Empire. South Stream – Turkish Stream would give a lot more sovereignty to Southern and Central Europe, leading to the weakening of the EU with subsequent breakup, and in turn, weakening US positions.

And another breaking news! As Turkey was proclaiming how eager they were to restart Turkish Stream, Bulgaria suddenly announced that they have again changed their minds and were now ready to host South Stream (read the entire story of Bulgaria’s flip-flop and South Stream sabotage in ESR13 and in ESR7: The battle for Eurasia! TURKISH CONUNDRUM). In other words, suddenly there is eager competition between countries to host Russian pipelines. Add to that Germany and Nord Stream 2. The healthy competition is very good, and it will push one of these projects through that much faster. I already told you in ESR13 which project it will be…

Here are two important questions for you to consider, which, once answered, will reveal the true meaning of this big geopolitical game. They’ll explain why ukro-nazi coup in Ukraine had to be executed, why Su24 had to be shot down and why Turkey, EU and Russia had to be kept as enemies:
1. Why is suddenly Bulgaria so brave and wants back into the Russian gas game, after having chickened out the moment Uncle Sam said ‘No’?
2. What will happen to Ukraine after all these projects go through and its old Soviet pipeline becomes obsolete?

Answers:

1. Make no mistake: Bulgaria really wanted to host the very lucrative South Stream and its refusal to do so is due only to its absolute lack of any sovereignty. Bulgaria is suddenly so brave because this is election time in the US. At this time, US is distracted with the elections and the sell-out Bulgarian government thinks they could sneak in South Stream unnoticed. But just think how puppet and spineless it really is if a simple visit by John McCain had previously put a stop to South Stream. I think South Stream is still preferred, and I can see that Russians may be thinking along the same lines. But its continuation may only be possible when this puppet government is replaced with a very different, sovereignty-minded type of government. Due to the nature of Bulgaria as an extremely apathetic and inertia-ridden state, this will take a while.

2. After pipelines bypassing Ukraine are built, Ukraine will stop having as much value to the US and they’ll drop it as a hot potato, which in turn will cause the bandit regime of ukro-nazi Kiev junta and its pro-US oligarchic clan to implode. This will free up the genuine forces of liberation and Ukraine will make a swift turnaround towards its historic, political and economic ties with Russia. The problem with the territory we presently refer to as Ukraine is that it is an intrinsic part of the Russian World that was successfully infected with a virus of hatred towards everything Russian. Ukraine was targeted specifically because Russians never concealed how important Ukraine was to Russia. The US/West’s logic: If Ukraine is that important, then it is necessary to tear it away. This was why the 2014 Kiev coup was necessary from USA’s standpoint.

One of the major difficulties of dealing with Ukraine’s situation for Russia right now is the fact that the all-Russian/Soviet infrastructure was built as one system, spanning all ex-republics. Therefore, Russian gas pipeline to the EU ran through Ukraine, delivering at its height up to 70% of Russian gas to Europe. Now it’s down to 25% or so. This was a major pressure point against Russia throughout 2000s. You may remember the sudden gas stoppages as a result of Ukraine’s sabotage and stealing of European gas. The manipulation of Russia by the US and various anti-Russian interests through the Ukraine pipe reached staggering proportions, culminating in the 2014 coup.

Therefore, getting the pipe away from Ukraine is a blessing for all: Russia, EU and Ukraine, as well. Ukraine, or what’s left of it, will finally be left alone and allowed to rebuild itself (probably as several separate states and territories associated with Russia).

Therefore, one way or another, more pipelines bypassing Ukraine will be built no matter what. The only question is which countries will end up benefiting from the pipeline going through their territory. This will be determined by how quick on their feet and cooperative these countries are, plus, how smart and sovereign they are. As I said, I know which pipeline will be built first – and it’s all in the report!

In addition to all the above, Turkey continued asking for Russia to remove bans on tourism, air traffic, Turkish agricultural produce imports and Turkish construction companies working in Russia. Turkey made a killing in these areas and Russian money really supported Turkish economy, until Russia put the bans in place following the downing of the Su24.

Russians promised that they would be removing bans little by little. Read: depending on how you behave, we’ll see what we can do. For the time being the tourism ban has been removed and charter flights to Turkey may be resumed soon. However, the terrorist warning for Turkey is still in place and only the most brave dare to go there. Russians aren’t in a hurry to let construction and produce imports back in: they’ll give more time for domestic companies to strengthen and take bigger share of the market.

Unthinkable just recently: Turkey-Russia cooperation in Syria!

After the meeting with ‘esteemed Vladimir’ Erdogan announced that Turkey is inviting Russia to fight jointly against ISIS/Daesh in Syria. This is yet another move by Turkey to spite US and NATO, following earlier threats to boot US troops out of Turkish bases, and after a clash with Germany.

This is a staggering, unthinkable just recently announcement! After all, Turkey just recently helped ISIS/Al-Nusra/Muslim Brotherhood terrorists and Syria/Assad has been Erdogan/Turkey’s mortal enemy.  Read all about that in ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.

We may soon hear announcements about certain Russia-Turkey joint missions. In my view, Russia will continue being cautious with involving Turkish militarily, until they are sure they can trust them. However, getting Turkey on Russia’s side in Syria and Black Sea vicinity – and on these new, more favorable to Russia conditions – is a huge, huge, HUGE win.

It’s also a HUGE humiliation and loss of face for the US. It has already, and it will continue leading to the weakening of the US and NATO.

We should expect Turkey cooperating with Russia in shutting down its border to Syrian terrorist supplies, oil, money and weapon smuggling. We can also expect better cooperation in securing Black Sea, such as not allowing certain US military ships through and cooperating in allowing faster passage for Russian ships through the straits. All these are still stop-gap measures. As I explained in the report, the issue of Black Sea and Straits has to be resolved in principle: all outsider military ships (read: US military ships, since no other outside country does that) have to be banned from entering. Only the military ships of countries bordering Black Sea should be allowed in Black Sea.

The extreme value of Black Sea, and therefore, the frantic activity around it, is due to one factor only: it is the soft and vulnerable underbelly of Russia. Therefore, surrounding Russia with unfriendly regimes has been US/UK strategy for hundreds of years. I explained how it all works in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

The value and relative vulnerability of Crimea is derived directly from the same. The recent attack by Ukraine on Crimea is correlated with the rest of the events we’ve talked about. I am preparing a new Earth Shift Report, which will address the recent attacks on Crimea, why they happened and why now, who benefits, how it will impact Ukraine’s future, how US elections may be impacted, and whether Russia will sever diplomatic ties with Ukraine. We’ll also discuss the future of Crimea. Expect the new ESR: THE CRIMEA FACTOR in August 2016.

Keeping up with pretenses, the US State Dept announced that they were not bothered by Turkish cooperation with Russia at all, and that ‘US strategy in Syria didn’t change.’ However, that is not because US feels just fine about Turkish move. If it were up to them, Erdogan would be dead right this moment and pro-US Turkish generals would be in power. It’s simply because they are out of options. This is a serious defeat for the US Empire.

That said, US won’t leave Turkey alone. It will attempt more coups, terror acts, etc. Same goes for Russia. And remember, Russian elections are coming. Moreover, US elections have a direct bearing on all these events as well. How? Stay tuned for new Earth Shift Reports, in which all this will be revealed!

Why Putin chose to meet with Erdogan not in Moscow but in St. Petersburg

Perhaps very subtly, this is also a message. St. Petersburg was once founded by Peter the Great as then landlocked Russian Empire’s first serious international port in the Baltic Sea, designed for the new Western-prevalence era of 17th -20th centuries (in prior millennium, the ancient Rus peoples, with their multiple centers of influence, of course, had various ports on different continents). Peter called the St. Pete port: ‘a window to Europe.’

The new strategy of the US/West has been to shut and bolt down this window to Western Europe, creating a New Iron Curtain from Baltic to Black Sea via a cordon of unfriendly to Russia regimes. It was a partial success, with Romania, 3 ex-Soviet Baltic mini-states and Poland joining the cordon. A snag happened in the middle of the Baltic-Black Sea Iron Curtain, when Czechia, Slovakia and Hungary wisely decided to stay neutral to kind-of-friendly to Russia. It also turned out that converting Belarus into anti-Russia didn’t work no matter what. But Ukraine became the clincher. After 2004 color revolution, only a partial success was achieved. In 2014 the success was complete with a total Ukraine subversion. Turkey and Bulgaria were also supposed to be part of the Iron Curtain. Bulgaria turned reluctantly, only with a partial success, while Turkey refused to be easy.

The grand total of this entire scheme is that the Iron Curtain isn’t working as well as the Transatlantic masters want it to work. Moreover, it is so shaky it may just topple any moment at one’s slight touch. The most important factor in the unreliability of this flimsy Iron Curtain is that Russia/Putin refused to play by West’s rules and began creating their own rules, thus changing the reality around them and beginning to fulfill Russia’s true destiny as the Great Global Balancer and Stabilizer.

Therefore, we see a signal, which, it appears, few have understood: Turkish president Erdogan, who was supposed to be responsible for locking down the Black Sea end of the Iron Curtain, meets Putin in his native city of St. Petersburg, the place where Russia’s biggest Baltic Sea ports are, often called ‘Russia’s window to Europe.’ In the more modern terms: Nord Stream 2 is to be laid through the bottom of Baltic Sea; Turkish Stream – through Black Sea.

Consequently, the recipient is known and the message is: ‘The New Iron Curtain has failed.’

P.S. Why following Erdogan’s visit Putin met with Armenian president

On August 10, one day after the breakthrough meeting with Erdogan, Vladimir Putin received president of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan. As I also said in the above report, on August 8, one day before Erdogan, Putin met in Azerbaijan with Iranian and Azeri presidents.

As usual, nothing happens by accident in the global chess game. Armenia and Turkey are mortal enemies. So are Iran and Turkey. Azerbaijan and Armenia, unfortunately, are also enemies, with continuing armed conflicts. All these mutual animosities are used by outside forces to manipulate various countries against each other and to destabilize the region. By contrast, Russia’s goal as the Global Balancer, is to stabilize and harmonize the region and the whole planet.

By meeting with Armenian leader right after all others, the relative closeness of the EAEU member Armenia to Russia is underscored. A signal is sent that Russia’s deals with Turkey or Azerbaijan do not mean Russia has forgotten her ally Armenia. At the same time, by meeting neck to neck with leaders of all these rival countries, Putin sends a signal of cooperation and unification to all of them.

‘It’s much better to cooperate and get along’ is Russia’s message. Enough with the archaic ‘divide and conquer,’ used by the US Empire. A better way, based on cooperation and mutually beneficial, peaceful relations, is shown by Russia. The world is tired of wars and people aren’t blind. They can see that Russia is the only country that can unite – as opposed to divide – various countries.

Putin in Greece: Important Body Language, Signs and Omens

Putin and Tsipras 5 16 Greece visit

Vladimir Putin has completed his 2-day state visit to Greece, where he met with Greek PM Alexis Tsipras and Greek president. At the airport Putin was lavishly greeted, complete with red carpet, honorary guard and 3 jets flying overhead in his honor.

Putin arriving to Greece:

Greece, much like Italy, Cyprus, Hungary and France, as well as Germany, is trying to find a way to bypass sanctions and to increase trade with Russia. If you ask me, the easiest way to ‘bypass’ sanctions is to simply end them. But Brussels and Berlin play games, and this is what gets the rest of Europe in trouble.

One area for both Italy and Greece that may shine is Russian tourism, especially after Russian tourism left Turkey and Egypt. Another area could be investments. As I mentioned before, Italians are active at investing in Crimea, and so are Germans. Russian companies would be glad to invest in EU, should the opportunities present themselves. Russian energy is always of great interest for Greece, Italy and most of Europe. However, the political games being played make it difficult for businesses to make deals based on reason and necessity.

In view of the EU sanctions, Russia works with certain separate countries, such as Greece and Italy.

The clear three reasons Italy and Greece are at the forefront of friendly relations with Russia are:

  1. Their economy is more dependent on trade with Russia and, therefore, they have much more to lose from bad relations with Russia;
  2. Club Med countries suffer more than Germanic countries from EU’s economic downturn and their need for additional markets is much stronger than for some Western European counties;
  3. Greece and Italy are traditionally some of the most friendly to Russia countries in the EU.

Greek PM Tsipras talked about the pressing need to remove sanctions and proposed to serve as an intermediary between Russia and EU.

During the visit, Putin mentioned that it was time to translate the great relations between Greece and Russia into mutual economic benefit.

Putin – Tsipras meetup video: Russia and Greece sign various documents re. improving trade relations, energy, tourism and other cooperation agreements.

Notice the important symbolism and body language on the above video image!

Putin and Tsipras are clearly leaning towards each other. This always denotes mutual trust and affinity. In fact, Tsipras is leaning towards Putin more.

Now, let’s look at Putin’s arms. They are open, which means he has nothing to hide. But Tsipras arms are folded, which means he is guarded or isn’t as open as he’d like to be. The reason for this regrettable (as Tsipras is, no doubt, considering – just look at his pensive face) guardedness is revealed by the flag situation to the right of the image. Greek flag is there next to the EU flag, sort of juxtaposing itself to the Russian flag on the other side.

Here is the hidden message conveyed:

‘We, Greece are talking to Russia, but haven’t forgotten that we are a member of the EU, whether we like it or not.’

In fact, as revealed by the combination of Tsipras’ body language, the fact of Putin being met as a very special guest upon arrival to Greece, and the added symbolism of the flags, there is a dissonance being present.

Tsipras hidden message is: we would love to have tighter and more intimate relations with Russia; in fact, that would be our preference, but we are confined by our membership in EU, which imposes severe limitations on who and to what degree we can be friends with.

During his visit to Greece, Vladimir Putin also visited the Sacred Mount Athos (RUS: Гора Афон), the so-called Republic of the Monks, housing 20 Orthodox monasteries, including a 1000-year-old Russian monastery. During service, the monks put Putin in the emperor’s place. Since you can’t sit during an Orthodox service, on visits to Mount Athos Byzantium Emperors of old would stand in a specially constructed, gilded honorary portico.

Putin-king-treatment-Greece

Brief video – Putin on Mount Athos:

This is a longer, 25 min video of Putin’s visit to Mount Athos:

The monks recall a story of this good omen: during Putin’s first visit to Mount Athos in 2005, a donkey appeared on the road, and it ran in the center of the road in front of, and then next to, Putin’s car all the way down hill. On Putin’s way back, the donkey waited for him and again ran in front of his car, this time all the way uphill. The monks interpreted that as a fortunate sign from the Holy Mother, the patroness of  Mount Athos.

In conclusion: Dmitry Medvedev has dropped a sanctions bombshell

Dmitry Medvedev has announced that Russia intends to extend her anti-EU/US food and agricultural embargo (aka, return sanctions) till the end of 2017. This is what Russian domestic agricultural producers ask us to do, said Medvedev.

Recall that I predicted this outcome from the beginning of the 2014 events. I said that EU’s anti-Russian sanctions are a blessing in disguise and that Russia will use them to strengthen domestic agricultural producers, as well manufacturers, who will be able to occupy the shelves with their products, previously entirely filled by imports.

I also said that the longer EU continues with sanctions, the more European products will find themselves squeezed out of the Russian market.

LADA RAY REPORT: Putin Announces Russian Troops Withdrawal from Syria – Reasons Revealed!

Putin Announces Troops Withdrawal from Syria.

Russia’s Accomplishments and Withdrawal Reasons Revealed!

Putin is the most unpredictable politician in the world: he always tells the truth.

As many times before, Putin openly pre-announced Russian objectives in Syria and said that once they have been achieved, Russia will withdraw. It appears the West was under a complete impression Putin was lying. No wonder: that’s how they themselves behave, and they expect the same behavior from others. Their feeble minds can’t fathom that there are few out there who actually tell the truth.

FILE - In this Sunday, March 4, 2012 file photo, Syrians hold posters of Syrian President Bashar Assad, far left, and Russian President Vladimir Putin, second left, during a pro-Syrian goverment protest in front of the Russian Embassy in Damascus, Syria. In ramping up its military involvement in Syria's civil war, Russia appears to be betting that the West, horrified by Islamic State's atrocities, may be willing to tolerate Assad for a while, perhaps as part of a transition. (AP Photo/Muzaffar Salman, File)

What were Russia’s main objectives? Let’s hear it directly from the horse’s mouth.

This special talk show Evening with Vladimir Soloviev of March 15, 2016, dedicated to Russian withdrawal from Syria (Вечер с Владимиром Соловьевым. Спецвыпуск от 15.03.16), includes an excerpt from the televised October 2015 interview with President Putin. Incidentally, Evening with Vladimir Soloviev is my top recommended Russian political talk show.

I have translated the interview snippet. Soloviev (S), President Putin (P).

On this video, the October 2015 Putin interview recording starts at 23:12 and ends at 24:50: 

S: What are our real goals in Syria and what are the criteria of our success?

P: First, let me re-confirm what is already a well-known fact: we have advised in advance our American and many other partners, as well as the countries in the region, of our plans and intentions. Some say we did it too late, but let me remind everyone that no one ever advises us of their plans or actions in operations of this kind. Yet, we did it.

S: Show of good will?

P: Yes, out of good will, together with common sense. But also to show that we are open to cooperation.

S: Syrian army began advancing. What are their chances of success?

P:  This primarily depends on the Syrian army and Syrian leadership. We can’t assume any excessive responsibility upon ourselves, and we never did. I said from the start that the active phase of our Syrian operation will be limited in time by the term of the advancement of this same Syrian army. To return to your first question: our goal is specifically to stabilize the legitimate power in Syria and to create the conditions for the political dialogue and compromise.

That was said in October 2015. The whole Russian plan, timeframe and intentions were laid out clearly, for all world to hear.

Video (Putin at 23:12 – 24:50 – RUS):

LR: To add to the above, Putin and Russian Army command announced from the start that Syrian op would last 5-6 months. There were tons of doom-and-gloomers everywhere, including Russian opposition from Zhirinovsky’s LDPR to pro-West anti-Putin liberals. These predicted that Russia would get stuck in Syria, like US did in Iraq and Afghanistan, that it will be Afghanistan 2.0 for Russia, that casualties would mount…

The active phase of Russian Syrian op actually ended in 5 months! There were only two operation-related military casualties, due to Turkey’s downing of the Russian jet and rescue helicopter. Unfortunately, there were civilian casualties: terrorist act against Russian plane over Sinai, Egypt, with 224 people dead.

On March 14-15, 2016 Putin Announced Russian Troops Withdrawal from Syria. The West is in shock. They are so used to their own lies, as well as the world around them based solely on lies, that they can’t fathom how Putin can actually promise something and keep his word. As we know, the White House, Pentagon, US State Dept and NATO were completely unprepared and didn’t know what to say or how to react to the news.

I will talk much more in-depth about Putin’s strategy and style, which – I predict – will continue to surprise and stomp his adversaries, in the upcoming EARTH SHIFT REPORT FEATURE: THE PUTIN ENIGMA. You can always check the main EARTH SHIFT REPORT page on LadaRay.info for release dates of each report.

In my bestselling Earth Shift Report 5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER, released in October 2015, and in a number of other pieces, I said time and again that Putin would outplay them all. He will make his next move when no one expects it, and he will always be one, two, three moves ahead of the next guy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2015 (SPIEF 2015) in St. Petersburg, Russia, June 19, 2015. Putin said on Friday Russia was doing well in tackling its economic crisis, aggravated by Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis and a fall in global oil prices. REUTERS/Grigory Dukor

Main reasons for Russian troops withdrawal from Syria revealed!

I didn’t call Earth Shift Report 5 SYRIA GAME CHANGER by accident. What Russia did in Syria in the mere five months truly was a total game changer and a complete turnaround.

Below is a long list of objectives of the Russian Syria campaign that have been achieved in five months. (I challenge you to compare this list of things promised and delivered to what the multi-year US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq have done to those countries; what NATO bombings have done to Libya; what the US/EU 2-year+ interference in Ukraine has turned the country into!)

Important things to remember:

Let’s recall that Russia announced from the start that there will be no ground operation. It was clear that Russia doesn’t want to repeat Soviet and US mistakes in the Middle East.

Also, let’s remember that this withdrawal is partial. This is a gesture designed to send a specific message to all parties involved, and to the global community in general. What this message is – we’ll discuss below.

Russia merely announced the end to the active phase of Syria operations. There are two bases and sufficient number of troops/crews left. Russia still controls the Syrian sky. S-400 systems remain there, which means that any flights over Syria have to be coordinated with Russia.

Additionally, it has been hinted that Russian jets, troops and ships can be returned back within hours, should necessity arise. In fact, Vladimir Putin announced that starting March 22 Russia may re-start operations against those who attempt to break the truce. This remark had a fabulous response. Those groups who thought they could begin fighting with Assad troops again once Russia left, got back to negotiations table.

Russia spent on Syrian operation $450 million. That’s all. This constitutes less than 1 percent of the Russian defence budget.

I don’t have handy the Pentagon or NATO budget numbers, but isn’t it something like their weekly allowance? Incidentally, let’s compare this to how much US spent in Iraq and Afghanistan.

syria map2

Russian accomplishments in Syria and associated withdrawal reasons: 

1. ISIS oil infrastructure – destroyed or weakened; ISIS military and terrorist infrastructure – destroyed or weakened. Multi-billion investments of ISIS/Al Nusra/ Muslim Brotherhood’s sponsors Qatar, Saudis and Turkey – destroyed. ISIS, Turkey, Saudi and Qatar oil – synthetic drug – slave – artifact smuggling ring broken, which means that the financing of terrorist activities has been dealt a major blow.

2. What really goes on in Syria has been exposed for the whole world to see. Before, the Western propaganda had a monopoly on Syria stories, presenting its usual false narrative. Now, with Russian direct footage and access given for the Western press to Russian bases and battle ships patrolling Mediterranean much of the false narrative changed dramatically. Having seen the truth, US and EU became unable to accuse Russia or Assad of various actions they didn’t commit. The Western propaganda ring has been broken and the tide has been reversed.

3. Some of the potential new recruits have been scared away from joining ISIS-Daesh and other terrorist organizations by Russian Syria campaign. The idea that they would be bombed by Russian jets, should they join, stopped many. Therefore, the lives of some of the young, lost people residing on the territory of the Russian Federation, EU and various Muslim counties, have been saved.

Per Russian statistics, about 5,000 Russian citizens joined ISIS, mostly Muslims from Caucasus, Siberia, Volga Tatars and Crimean Tatars. Also thousands joined from Muslim ex-Soviet Central Asia and Azerbaijan. These were recruited through mosques and infiltrated propagandists. The flow of ‘fresh cannon fodder’ has been at least slowed down, if not stopped.

One of pre-announced Russian goals was to prevent the already trained ISIS militants from being able to return back home, which they could do with their Russian passports. The official Russian statistics is that out of 5,000 ISIS militants with Russian passports 2,000 have been killed as a result of Russian raids.

4. Another Russian goal was to keep Syria secular and inclusive of other religions, in other words, prevent Syria from turning into another Muslim fundamentalist state. There are many Christians (both Orthodox and Catholics) that lived in Syria in peace for millennia; Assad government was always respectful of other religions. These Christians and their cities received one of the biggest blows during the invasion by ISIS. Result of Russian campaign: secular Syrian state re-affirmed, made stronger and more consolidated. Assad has been re-affirmed as national leader, at least in the interim.

5. Syrian army was able to advance and take back a number of territories, which they were unable to re-take on their own. Now the Syrian government controls about 1/2 of Syria. Just six months ago it was only about 20% of Syrian territory.

7. The trend of Syrian opposition (dubbed by US ‘moderate’) fighting Assad government troops has been decidedly reversed. Truce achieved and holding; moderate opposition has been taken out of the fight mode with Assad and is now working with Assad against ISIS. Moreover, the number of groups and bands in truce with the government continues growing daily. Altogether, there are thousands of such groups and they are all trying to secure a place for themselves in the future of Syria. All this, thanks to the skilled combined effort of the Russian military and diplomacy.

Russia opened a Center for the Syrian dialogue in Moscow, where different Syrian opposition groups can register and speak up.

Russia also put together a list of those opposition groups that want to be taken out of harms ways. If you are on the list, then you agree to the truce and to stop fighting against Assad troops. Everyone on the list agrees to fight only against ISIS. In exchange, they are guaranteed not to be bombed by Russian jets and to be included in Syrian political process.

All the above has been achieved within five months. It’s in stark contrast to the destruction and chaos US/EU and their ME allies achieved through years of inciting wars, hatred and violence.

In fact, Russia reversed the trend of US and allies encouraging ISIS and other terrorist organizations to grow like a tumor. Certainly, it’s too early to talk about ISIS/Al Nusra/Muslim Brotherhood being dealt a deathly blow. We are still very far from a true resolution of the Middle East problems and crises. If you recall, my prediction last year was that the Middle East would suffer from violence and various conflicts for a long time due to many millennial issues that have remained unresolved. Resolution will take a very long time.

But what Russia has shown in Syria is that resolution is possible; that a very discerning and targeted surgical intervention, aiming at stabilizing the country, while isolating and taking out of the equation the destructive forces, can lead to hope of a better future. The smart leaders and countries will heed this and follow the example. 

8. In the eyes of various groups in Syria, and in the eyes of the entire Middle East, Russia is now the main peacemaker and the go-to country for all grievances and deals.

A pilgrimage of various Syria opposition groups to Moscow doesn’t cease. Similarly, every week and month there are leaders of various Middle Eastern countries visiting Moscow for negotiations. Russia received leaders of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan UAE, and everyone in between, including those, like Qatar, who just recently tried to undermine Russia, and who were implicated in the Russian passenger plane downing over Sinai, Egypt. Not that Qatar or SA would stop their undermining activities, but at least for now they have to negotiate.

Leaders of the Kurds from Syria, Iraq and Turkey have been visiting Moscow and meeting with Russians. Kurdistan’s first representative office has opened in Moscow.

Incidentally, as described in SYRIA GAME CHANGER, Israeli PM Netanyahu was one of the first to visit Moscow before the start of the Russian Syria incursion in 2015. Back then I said that Israel, with the usual Jewish shrewdness, knew who to ‘call.’ Let’s say that Israel knew ‘the right phone number’ and understood how to position itself before Syria events. This is why Israel was first to sign a Syria cooperation and intel sharing deal with Russia. I said back then that Israel knows where the wind is blowing and is re-orienting itself towards Russia, Eurasia and SCO. Also read ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE? for a perspective on the true Israeli spread and future direction.

 For those who want to hear me out: I said many times before that we are going through a massive Earth Shift in all areas of life on the planet. I am your guide in this tectonic Earth Shift.  Those who read my FREE articles, Earth Shift Reports  and materials on LadaRay.info, especially LADA RAY OMNIVERSE section, will be well prepared for the Shift to come.

8. As a result of years of USA’s failures, especially compared to Russia’s success, US influence in the Middle East is waning fast. Russian influence is growing just as fast.

Non-ISIS/non-Al Nusra opposition is now much less likely to look to the US and much more likely to go to Russia for advice and direction.

US clout in the Middle East is extremely low, even in the countries fully dependent in them. Saudis consider themselves betrayed by the US and continue giving signals to Russia that they want closer cooperation (frankly, I wouldn’t trust them for a moment, but a situational alliance might be useful). Iraq and Afghanistan continue attempting to ask Russia for assistance in fighting ISIS on their territory, while US continues blocking these requests. Russians signaled they would help Afghanistan and Iraq, if asked formally by their governments. One of the big reasons to help is that terrorists and smugglers from those two could potentially infiltrate Central Asia and south Caucasus, from where they can get into Russia proper through porous ex-Soviet republics’ borders.

The latest on that: Russian military signaled that they have secured the Central Asian borders in Tajikistan through the newly expanded base and that infiltration isn’t possible any more. 

9. Russia achieved its goal of securing bases in Syria / on the Mediterranean coast. Russia now has two bases, which will continue being maintained. All this will be secured by diplomatic documents that will hold under international scrutiny regardless of what government comes after Assad.

10. Russia got US to take off the table its demand that ‘Assad must go’ – a MAJOR win for Russia and a major show of US weakness.

11. Syria elections – another achievement. This means that Assad has been legitimized in the eyes of the West and Syrian opposition. They all now have to work with Assad, whether they want it or not.

If Assad is reconfirmed as the national leader by elections, they will have no choice but to recognize him. If he isn’t reconfirmed, then there will be new government, which, unlike Libya, destroyed by the US and EU interference, will have to be secular and inclusive, under Russian and international supervision.

12. I wrote about this in SYRIA GAME CHANGER. Federalization of Syria and the Kurds is possible. I consider this a good outcome, if done correctly. Kurds announced they are forming a federation (aka, autonomy) within Syria. At the very minimum, this means they are not trying to secede, further destabilizing the region. This announcement, so far not recognized by Assad or internationally, puts a lot of pressure on Erdogan and Turkey, who are bombing and killing Kurds on their own territory. For the Turkish Kurds now there is an inspiring example in Syria. This weakens Erdogan. I have talked at length in ESR5 and ESR7 about Erdogan, Davutoglu, ans the issue of the Kurds.

In ESR5 I said that Syria needs to move to federalization. Russia, the world’s largest federation, can help Syria like no other.

Assad is afraid to recognize Kurdish autonomy as well, fearing this will lead to further destabilization of the country. He is partially right: US/West/Saudi/Qatar/Turkey’s interference in the affairs of decentralized, autonomous regions will be that much easier. But Assad may have no choice. In the end it all depends on how skilled his diplomats and politicians are. Russia will lend a hand in negotiations.

As a matter of fact, it has been recognized by various opposition and pro-government forces that Russia is the one and only power to talk to. As one Assad’s opponent said, ‘now Russia is again seen as the only peacemaker in the region by all forces in Syria.’

13. Withdrawing at the time when Kerry and Lavrov have decided on the framework on Syria negotiations and when the main list of Syrian ‘moderate’ opposition’ groups has been compiled underscores Russia’s commitment to peaceful, diplomatic solution of Syrian conflict.

Since Geneva negotiations between government and opposition began, the withdrawal and cessation of Russian bombings sent all the right kinds of signals to the parties involved: Russian Army has done its job. Now it’s time for Russian diplomacy to do theirs.

Putin reconfirmed this signal when he met on March 14th with both Russian FM Sergey Lavrov and Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu. The message was very strong and unmistakable: the army has done what was needed to stabilize Syria, now let’s pass the baton to our diplomats, who will deepen and solidify this success.

Video (ENG translation):

Putin, Lavrov and Shoigu 3/14/16

Russia: Troops arriving home from Syria given hero’s welcome

Russia: Troops can be deployed back to Syria ‘in mere hours’ if necessary – Putin

14. Last, but not least, by announcing partial withdrawal, Russia sent a message to Assad. The message is that Assad shouldn’t rest on laurels; that he can’t think that Russia was there to support him personally.

Russia sent a message, understood fully by all political and military groups in Syria and beyond: we won’t always be in Syria to bail out Assad. He needs to find his own stride for reconciliation. We are here to establish pre-conditions for political process by stabilizing the country and allowing the fair and equal voice to the people. What does this kind of message do? It puts the fire under Assad, making him agree to elections and national dialogue. It also restrains honest opposition from further armed clashes with government forces, making them see the light in the end of the tunnel – the light of possible peaceful resolution and political change in the interests of the country.

The Russian Syria withdrawal timing is genius:

All in all, Russia took away from the West and their Middle East vassals the possibility of escalation of anti-Assad rhetoric and, therefore, escalation of Syria conflict, leading to further destabilization of the country and region.

1. UK is now in a difficult position. Its attempt to build a new army and invade Syria through Libya now makes it look like a bully and invader in the eyes of own citizens.

2. Turkey was preparing its own invasion of Syria. Russian withdrawal announcement was a cold shower to Erdogan. Now US/NATO are forced to restrain Turkey from rash actions. In fact, the entire Russian op put a huge harness on Turkey’s ambitions to chop off a chunk of Syria, promised to him by US/Qatar and Saudis in late 2000s. It also dampened Erdogan’s ambition to resurrect Ottoman Khalifate. Read all about that in ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.

3.  This move by Russia also restrains US actions in Syria, together with those of Saudis and Qatar. Now their hands are tied and they can’t continue trying to unseat Assad, otherwise they look like bullies. Of course, to make this happen Lavrov and Russia first made US admit that negotiations were the way to go, remove from the agenda ‘Assad must go’ mantra and compose a list of opposition forces ready to negotiate. Being tied into the negotiations framework makes it impossible for US to start invading Syria willy-nilly.

4. Besides that, Russia ingeniously timed Syria op, negotiations and withdrawal to the US presidential elections year. Obama and democrats desperately need to show some kind of international successes. This is why they suddenly began playing nice with Cuba, sat down with Iran last year and this is why they are ready to negotiate in Syria.

5. Another reason Russia announced partial withdrawal: sand storm season has begun, which makes flights difficult to impossible for a couple of months. Again – good timing.

6. US has recently gone into Syria, while Russia is already out. This again demonstrates that US continues scrambling to catch up to Russia. Read: Why Is Obama Scrambling to Catch Up to Putin?  In ESR5 I said that Syria 2015-16 reminds me of WWII and 1944. It was in 1944 that US/UK suddenly saw the light and opened second front against Hitler, but only after they realized that USSR could take Berlin and liberate Europe all by themselves.

As I said, Putin is always several steps ahead. This is especially true after the devious US game in Ukraine.

Let me tell you something: the fact that Russia was not playing devious games in Ukraine was perceived by US and EU as a weakness and an opening to go in. As usual, they are unable to conceive that there are some who don’t play devious games not because they can’t, but because they are above it.

It’s not dangerous, but actually good – not for the US,  but for Russia and the rest of the world – that US is stuck on the ground in yet another conflict in the Middle East. US troops are on the ground in Syria – Russian are not; US has already given a commitment they will fight ISIS, after they were shamed by Russia into doing so (as explained in ESR5). Good, let them finally live up to their promises and do something useful for a change!

Meanwhile, Russian reputation and clout in the Middle East is growing, while US is waning. US is playing a humiliating catch-up, while Russia continues leading.

In fact, I think that in part this Russian withdrawal has been timed so to demonstrate how slow and ill-equipped US and EU are for the modern strategic operations. Sort of: ‘see, we’ve accomplished everything we said we would, and are already out, while these dinosaurs are only getting in.’ The world isn’t blind and can see what’s going on.

When US showed to the whole world that it was absolutely unwilling to respect Russian interests, Russia and Putin began showing that in fact they are very capable of playing games, and much better than the West – if they want to.

Finally, here are two other good reasons for the timing of this withdrawal:

7. March 15th was one day before the 2nd anniversary of the Crimean referendum, which returned Crimea to Russia. This was part of the holiday present for March 16-19, the dates when Crimea and Sevastopol were officially accepted as two new subjects of the Russian Federation. Russia is clean and out of any conflicts on foreign soil – was the loud and clear message.

8. Now, being out of Syria, Russia can deal without any distractions with Ukraine and other problems close to home, such as Central Asia and Caucasus. This also includes Turkey and all of Black Sea.

Vladimir Putin’s Predictions re. Ukraine

You often hear me spell out the position of the Russian government, Russian people and personally Vladimir Putin towards various issues, including Ukraine.

Throughout my many articles and specific PREDICTIONS, I have also predicted the sequence of the Ukraine events, which are materializing little by little, one of them being that Ukraine will eventually turn around to join Russia and Eurasian Union.

You also heard me predict that Russia would under no circumstances send troops to Ukraine or take a bait to start a hot war. In fact I predicted that Russia and Putin would do everything to create a roadmap for peaceful solution – and that they would succeed. I also emphasized Putin/Russia’s amicable and patient stance on Ukraine, which will long-term foster trust and understanding that Russia is Ukraine people’s true friend.

I also said that Russia would wait till Ukrainian people mature enough to understand that they got themselves into this no-way-out situation, allowing them to heal and shift their reality using inner resource on their own time.

I want you to hear the same predictions straight out of the mouth of the man who shapes and executes the policies and events we so often talk about.

At a meeting in Crimea, Vladimir Putin spoke about Ukraine and its future. I have translated this quote:

I am confident that despite all current difficulties, the situation in Ukraine will correct itself and Ukraine will again start developing, developing positively. Ukraine will eventually abandon the shameful practice which we are observing today, namely, when this whole huge European country has been placed under foreign management, when the key posts in the government and regions are taken over by foreign citizens. I think all this is humiliating for the Ukrainian people.

Undoubtedly, in time what is happening will receive the fair judgement of the Ukrainian people. Ukraine will get back on its feet to develop in a positive way and to build its future together with Russia.

Destiny of Russia and Spectacular Show on Red Square

Don’t miss! May 9th, 2015, Moscow. Tastefully masterminded and beautifully performed Great War re-enactment and spectacular concert on Red Square. Includes some of the best and most famous Russian songs and dance – must see! Праздничный концерт «Дороги Великой Победы» на Красной Площади.

Please note, what is customarily translated to English as the “Great Patriotic War” is, like so many others, a bad translation. The right translation is: The Great War for Fatherland (Russian transliteration: Velikaya Otechestvennaya Voina). I simply call it “The Great War,” which gives it the right meaning, too – to match with the “Great Victory.”

Geopolitical message to the world

Throughout the entire day of May 9, 2015 Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping were seen together, talking all the time, while watching the parade and concert – you will see them again in this video of the Red Square concert. This is a clear geopolitical message to the world! Some analysts have said that a new anti-fascist coalition was formed on Red Square on May 9th. Those leaders who came to Moscow celebrations and brought their troops with them are in it. Those who didn’t come… you do the math. This may be correct on some level.

But it goes beyond that – far beyond. The fact that leaders of China, India and a number of other EURASIAN countries arrived, while only Serb and Cyprus presidents were present from Europe, sends another signal. As is well-know, Serbia is a very close-knit part of the Russian world, considering Russia their mother-culture, while Cyprus is the most pro-Russian part of the EU. While the island is primarily ethnically Greek, geographically it’s located next to Turkey, thus being a part of the Middle East, or more broadly – Eurasia. (Added: I am also told that Macedonian president was there as well – same story as Serbia. Please see much more in Comments).

Like I said back in the beginning of 2014: Russia is forced to rebalance to the East. Actually, destiny and the West are pushing Russia towards such rebalancing, whether Russia wants it or not.

Please recall my PREDICTIONS and multiple articles/videos: Russia is the Great Balancer of our planet. The previous great rebalancing started 1000 years ago, a process that was completed by Russia about 300 years ago, during the reign of Peter the Great. This rebalancing gave the West (first Western Europe, and later North America, as well) a huge advantage over the rest of the planet. Such rebalancing happens roughly every 1000 years, although there are also different timelines involved as well. Russia is now starting the process of rebalancing back to the East and Global South.

“The Roads of Great Victory” Re-enactment of the Great War and spectacular concert. Don’t miss it!

Victory Day fireworks with gorgeous views of the Kremlin and Moscow:

And don’t miss the Victory Day parades marathon, including the Immortal Regiment March. The Red Square parade was spectacular. But the Immortal Regiment March stole the show. 12 million people in Russia, post Soviet republics, and beyond took part in the Immortal Regiment March. 500,000 took part in Moscow alone. The entire initiative was grass-roots. I am told that many people from the UK, US, France and elsewhere in Europe came to the march as well, carrying portraits of their relatives who perished in WWII. I literally have never seen anything like this! And I’d been to 30 countries and seen lots of mass marches and parades growing up in the USSR. Victory Day Parades Marathon and The Immortal Regiment March.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon showed up for the May 9th celebration in Moscow. He said that when he saw that sea of people approaching Red Square, he first thought it was anti-Putin protest. But it turned out it was actually pro-Putin and pro-government celebration. You deserve all the love of your people, mr. President, concluded Ban Ki-moon. Whether it was meant as a pretty awkward joke, or he really is that misinformed – you decide.

Devastating Tragedy of WWII: Blockade of Leningrad and How Vladimir Putin’s Family Survived It

animation den pobedy 2

Tomorrow is May 9th. HAPPY VICTORY DAY!

This post is part of the 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON

They say there was no family in the 250 million Soviet Union that didn’t experience a loss in the Great Patriotic War, usually referred to in the West as World War II. This is why the Great Victory celebrated on May 9th is called ‘a holiday with tears in our eyes.’

Leningrad, presently St. Petersburg, a city of unsurpassed beauty and treasures on the Neva River, was one of the hardest hit during that brutal war. It is one of the original four Hero Cities for the heroism and spirit displayed by its troops and citizens (later, more cities were given the Hero City title). The other three were Stalingrad, Moscow and Odessa. Each had a unique and devastating story to tell.

Among them, Leningrad stood out by the amount of tragedy, sacrifice and starvation inflicted on simple citizens through the inhumane blockade, which left the multi-million city without food for almost 900 days.

Odessa had a different story to tell. Due to the city’s location, its siege, perpetrated by Germany and Romania together, was punctuated with severe water shortage. Thirst, not hunger, was what killed people in southern steppes. During sieges of Stalingrad and Moscow the killers were bombs and bullets. But undeniably, the most devastating and tragic story of the entire WWII was the Siege and Blockade of Leningrad (Russian: блокада Ленинграда).

It is something Russians remember very well… even those of us who were born decades after, even those who had never been to Leningrad. It is imprinted in our collective psyche.

It is also something that unfortunately those who live in the US, Canada, EU, Poland or Germany probably could never understand. Perhaps that’s why they have such immature and cavalier attitude towards WWII, Russia’s role and sacrifice in it. Or perhaps they are simply afraid of the Russian spirit and ability to withstand such hardship for the idea. Perhaps, this is why they need to do anything they possibly can to diminish and malign the country that saved the world from fascism.

Below is an excerpt from Wikipedia. I am usually very careful about quoting Wikipedia as much of its info is biased and inaccurate, to put it mildly. But this piece seems one of the few telling the truth. Link.

Wikipedia quote:

“The Siege of Leningrad, also known as the Leningrad Blockade (Russian: блокада Ленинградаtransliteration: blokada Leningrada) was a prolonged military operation undertaken by the German Army Group North against Leningrad—historically and currently known as Saint Petersburg—in the Eastern Front theatre ofWorld War II. The siege started on 8 September 1941, when the last road to the city was severed. Although the Soviets managed to open a narrow land corridor to the city on 18 January 1943, the siege was finally lifted on 27 January 1944, 872 days after it began. It was one of the longest and most destructive sieges in history and overwhelmingly the most costly in terms of casualties.

The capture of Leningrad was one of three strategic goals in the German Operation Barbarossa and the main target of Army Group North. The strategy was motivated by Leningrad‘s political status as the former capital of Russia and the symbolic capital of the Russian Revolution, its military importance as a main base of the Soviet Baltic Fleet and its industrial strength, housing numerous arms factories.[12] By 1939 the city was responsible for 11% of all Soviet industrial output.[13] It has been reported that Adolf Hitler was so confident of capturing Leningrad that he had the invitations to the victory celebrations to be held in the city’s Hotel Astoria already printed.[14] Yet, although various theories have been forwarded about Nazi Germany‘s ultimate plans for Leningrad, including renaming the city Adolfsburg (as claimed by Soviet journalist Lev Bezymenski) [15] and making it the capital of the new Ingermanland province of the Reich in Generalplan Ost, it is clear that Hitler’s intention was to utterly destroy the city and its population. According to a directive sent to Army Group North on 29 September, “After the defeat of Soviet Russia there can be no interest in the continued existence of this large urban center. […] Following the city’s encirclement, requests for surrender negotiations shall be denied, since the problem of relocating and feeding the population cannot and should not be solved by us. In this war for our very existence, we can have no interest in maintaining even a part of this very large urban population.”[16] Hitler’s ultimate plan was to raze Leningrad to the ground and give areas north of the River Neva to the Finns.”

Piskariovskoye Cemetery

I visited Leningrad – St. Petersburg several times in my life. It truly is the most beautiful and impressive historic city in the world. I took the time to go to the Piskariovskoye Memorial Cemetery where the victims of the 872-day blockade found their final resting place. It’s a huge field filled with alleys, flowers, and rows and rows of granite stones listing the names of those buried underneath – 500,000 in total. The entire toll of the blockade was over 640,000.

The Piskariovskoye Cemetery museum has photographs, documents and diaries of those who perished. There was a girl’s diary that struck me most. The little girl named Tanya documented every day things like: “Auntie died today, my little brother died, mommy died.” Then her hand was getting less steady as more people around her passed. The final entry was, “Tanya all alone.” The girl Tanya was buried with others on that cemetery.

Immortal stories of the people’s spirit during the Leningrad Blockade

Leningrad is home to some of the most beautiful museums and architecture in the world, filled with treasured art, science and literature. When Germans advanced, workers of the museums and libraries tried to save their treasures, aided by locals and soldiers. A lot of priceless art from Leningrad museums was evacuated, some under severe shelling and German aviation bombings.

Leningrad is full of gorgeous bridges and statues. To attempt to save them from bombings, the starving, exhausted citizens would wrap the statues in anything protective they could find, often building protective shields around them. That way they saved for posterity many, many priceless works of art.

See my post for more great pics of the magnificent Leningrad treasures saved for posterity: Tsars, Oligarchs and Imperial Treasure: ST.PETERSBURG, RUSSIA.

The great Russian composer Dmitry Shostakovich survived the Leningrad Blockade and wrote some of his most striking music during that time. He refused to leave his city; during the blockade, Shostakovich along with other artists, would play for the starving people and troops. These radio concerts would be broadcast via loudspeakers placed all over the city, bringing hope and lifting the morale.

Shostakovich – Symphony No 7: The LENINGRAD SYMPHONY, 1941 (Gergiev). The symphony became a symbol of anti-fascist resistance.

Amber Room

One of the most famous Leningrad treasures was the Amber Room, once given to empress Katerina Velikaya (Catherine the Great) by Prussian king – a feat which, according to historic accounts, bankrupted him. The Amber Room was so unique and beautiful that it was called the Eighth Wonder of the World. The value of the Amber Room? Simply priceless. The gorgeous, but fragile, amber panels were mounted onto a room at the Catherine Palace in the town of Pushkino, on the outskirts of St. Petersburg. Additional panels and paintings were created by Russian artisans in order to complete the room. The empress could sit in it for hours, forgetting about time and space. Anyone who saw the Amber Room is purported to have been awed by its beauty and otherworldly energy.

During the 1941 German advancement, the workers of the Catherine Palace museum managed to wrap up and evacuate practically all of the treasures. But they were afraid to move the fragile Amber Room, fearing it could get damaged if they tried to dismantle the panels. Instead, the decision was made to camouflage it by painting something on top of the panels and building fake walls around it. They hoped Germans would overlook the Amber Room.

When Pushkino was taken their hopes evaporated. Germans arrived with blueprints and drawings. They brought specialists with them, ready to dismantle the treasure. They also arrived with transportation and packaging. They knew exactly where to find the Amber Room; in fact, taking the Amber Room was one of their major goals in Leningrad, orders coming directly from Hitler.

Some of you may know the story: the Amber Room was taken to Königsberg (now Kaliningrad) and stayed there until Soviet troops approached the city. Then it was loaded onto a ship, which may, or may not have, drowned. The Amber Room vanished to never be seen again. Its mystery remains unsolved.

Several years ago the Russian artists and scientists completed the painstaking duplication of the Amber Room, after many years of research and work. The Amber Room 2.0 is now open to the public.

How Vladimir Putin’s Family Survived the Siege and Blockade of Leningrad

Excerpts from Nemo’s own translation of the original story by 

the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, published in Russian Pioneer 4/30/2015

Read the entire post: “Life is such a simple, yet cruel thing”

“Father worked at a military enterprise when the war started, being exempt from conscription. But he wrote an application to join the party, and then another application – that he wants to go to the front. He was dispatched to the subversive detachment of the NKVD. It was a small detachment. He said that there were 28 people in it, and they were deployed behind the enemy lines to carry out acts of sabotage, undermine bridges, railway tracks… But they were almost immediately ambushed. Someone betrayed them. They came to a village, and then went out, and when after a while they returned, the Nazis were already waiting for them there. They were chased through the woods, and father survived because he climbed into a swamp, and spent a few hours in that swamp, breathing through a reed. While sitting in the swamp and breathing through the reed, he heard how the German soldiers were passing nearby, just a few steps away from him, how the dogs were yapping…

It was the beginning of autumn, in other words – already cold… I also remember how he told me that the leader of their group was a German. A Soviet citizen, but a German.

And here’s what’s curious: a couple of years ago, the archives of the Defence Ministry handed me the case of this group. There is a copy of the case in my home, in Novo-Ogaryovo. A list of the group, names, patronymics and brief descriptions. Yes, 28 people. And at the head – a German. Everything as it was told by my father.

Of the 28 people, only 4 crossed the front line back to ours. 24 were killed.

They were re-assigned to the active army, and sent on to Nevsky Pyatachok. It was probably the hottest place during the whole of the Leningrad Blockade. Our troops held a small bridgehead. Four kilometres in width and some two kilometres in depth. It was supposed to be a springboard for the future breaking of the blockade. But it never got used for this purpose. They broke through the blockade elsewhere. Still the spot (Nevsky Pyatachok) was held, held for a long time, there was heavy fighting there. Very heavy. There are commanding heights above and all around it, it’s shot at throughout. The Germans were, of course, also aware that it’s there that a breakthrough may be attempted, and tried to simply erase the Nevsky Pyatachok  off the face of the earth. There is data about how much metal there is in each square meter of the land. There’s still metal all over the place there.

Father explained how he was wounded there. The wound was heavy. All his life he lived with shrapnel in his leg: not all fragments could be taken out. The leg ached. Foot didn’t bend since then. The medics preferred not to touch the small fragments so as not to shatter the bone. And, thank God, the leg was saved. They could, after all, amputate it. He got a good doctor. He had the second group disablement. As a disabled veteran, he was eventually given an apartment. It was our first separate apartment. A small two-room apartment. (Translators remark: Before that the Putins lived in a communal apartment, where several families share the facilities, corridor and kitchen, and sleep in separate rooms.) However, before that we lived in the centre and now we had to move. True, not quite to the outskirts, but to a new-built area. And it happened, of course, not immediately after the war, but when I already worked in the KGB. I was not given an apartment then, but my father finally got his. It was a great happiness. And here’s how he was wounded. He, together with a comrade, did a little sortie into the rear of the Germans, crawling, crawling… And then it becomes both funny and sad at the same time: they got to a German bunker, and, father said, out of it comes a man, a huge guy, and looks at them… and they couldn’t get up while they were staring into the barrel of a gun. “The man – he says – looked at us very carefully, then he took out a grenade, then another, and threw those grenades at us. Well… ” Life is such a simple, yet cruel thing.

By chance, father’s neighbour from Peterhof was nearby. And that neighbour pulled him over without hesitation and managed to drag him to the hospital. The neighbour waited for him at the hospital, made sure that he was operated, and said, “All right, now you’re going to live, and I am off to die.”

My mother told me how she visited father at the hospital. They had a small child, a three-year-old. At that time there was blockade, hunger… My father would give her his hospital ration, secretly from doctors and nurses. She hid it, took it home and fed the child. When father began to faint from hunger in the hospital, doctors and nurses understood what was happening and didn’t allow her to visit any more.

And then the child was taken away from her. It was done, as she later explained, in a compulsory fashion in order to save small children from starvation. They were collected to the orphanages for further evacuation. Parents were not asked.

He fell ill there – my mother said that it was with diphtheria – and didn’t survive. They were not even told where he was buried. They have never learnt where. And then, last year, completely unfamiliar to me people worked on their own initiative through the archives and found documents about my brother. And that’s really my brother. Because I knew that they lived then, after fleeing from Peterhof from the advancing German troops, at their friends’ place – and I even knew the address. They lived, as we call it, on the Water Channel (Vodnyj Kanal). It would be better to call it a “Bypass channel” (Obvodnyj Kanal), but in Leningrad it’s called “Water Channel”. I know for sure that they had lived there. And not only the address, where he was taken from, coincided. Name, surname, patronymic, date of birth coincided as well. It was, of course, my brother. And there was stated the place of burial: Piskaryovskoye Cemetery. And even the specific area was given.

Parents were told nothing of this. Well, apparently, other things had higher priority back then.

So, everything that my parents told about the war was true. Not a single word was invented; not a single day was moved. About my brother, about the neighbour, about the German, commander of the group. Everything matches. And all this got later confirmed in an incredible way.

After her child was taken away, mother was left alone. When father was allowed to walk, he stood up on crutches and went home. And when he came to the house, he saw that the medics were carrying corpses out of the entrance. And he saw my mother. He came up, and it seemed to him that she was breathing. He told the medics: “She’s still alive!” – “She’ll pass away along the way – said the nurse. – She won’t survive.” He told that he pounced on them with crutches and forced them to lift her back into the apartment. They told him: “Well, we’ll do as you say, but know that we will not come here for another two or three or four weeks. You’ll have to sort it out yourself then.”

He nursed her back to life. She survived and lived until 1999. He died in late 1998.

After the lifting of the blockade, they moved to the homeland of their parents, in the Tver oblast, and lived there until the end of the war. Father’s family was quite large. He had, after all, six brothers, and five of them were killed in the war. This is a disaster for the family. And my mother’s relatives also died. I was a late child; she gave birth to me when she was 41.

There was not a family where someone didn’t die. So much grief, misfortune and tragedy… But they had no hatred for the enemy, that’s what’s amazing. To be honest, I still cannot fully understand this. My mother was a very gentle, kind person… She said, “Well, what kind of hatred can one have toward these soldiers? They are simple people and also died in the war.” It’s amazing. We were brought up on Soviet books, movies… and hatred. But she somehow did not have it in her. And I remember very well her words: “Well, what can you have against them? They are also hard workers, just like us. They were simply force-driven to the front.”

I never forgot those words.”

Lada’s 2 cents:

It’s a tragic and beautiful story. There is only one thing on which I would disagree with President Putin. Quote: “We were brought up on Soviet books, movies… and hatred. But she somehow did not have it in her.”

Yes, we were brought up on Soviet books and movies, but not on hatred. My family didn’t have any hatred towards Germans either, although they lost a lot – see post. Neither do I.  In fact, I personally love German culture and as a student I had two close German friends. It was a common thing. There was no hatred then, and there isn’t any now.

But there is memory – memory which must be kept at all cost. When those old Soviet movies were made, they were created by those who either experienced war themselves or those who remembered it from direct participants. There are fewer and fewer such people left today. We must do everything to preserve the real truth about those events in order to avoid this kind of madness in the future. This is why attempts by some to re-write history cannot be tolerated.

“PRESIDENT (The history of New Russia).” Must see new documentary about Putin

Must see new documentary alert!

For those who are interested, below is the full video of the new documentary PRESIDENT (The history of New Russia). It’s a must see film about Putin by Russia 1 TV Channel. It is in Russian (you may be able to use YT’s closed captioned translate on the bottom of screen; however, I have to warn you that it works poorly.) If and when there is an English translation, I may be able to post it.

I will definitely mention parts of this documentary with my own translation in the upcoming EARTH SHIFT FEATURE REPORT: THE PUTIN ENIGMA. Stay tuned!

Learn more about ESRs. Order and read EARTH SHIFT REPORT 3. OLIGARCH WARS.

A reader has asked me whether this documentary coming out now means there are changes coming in Russia, either economic, political, staffing, or as far as the fight against corruption goes.

About this documentary: It’s dedicated to Putin’s 15 years in power. A very powerful documentary. Author: Vladimir Solovyov, whom I mentioned as my top recommended Russian political debate show host.

Are any ‘changes coming’? No, they aren’t coming. CHANGES ARE ONGOING IN RUSSIA, EURASIA, AND THE WORLD IN GENERAL. I have spoken of this for over a year in many of my articles, videos and interviews.

This is the time of sweeping changes in all aspects of life, aka, EARTH SHIFT (more in Predictions). We also recently put all this in perspective in: PUTIN’S DISAPPEARANCE AND THE NEW SILK ROAD – My Latest Interview with The Plane Truth.

Putin is here to facilitate this change. I have yet to finish watching this film, but from what I see so far, it focuses on Putin in this revolutionary role: the peaceful and gradual evolutionary change and guiding the world towards it, from his first steps in office till today.

Certain changes in personnel in the Russian political spectrum are a good idea. Putin will be doing any changes or making new moves as, and when, he sees them as beneficial. Putin has already proven himself to be a master of perfect timing. But as everything that Putin does, these will be surgically precise, but delicate interventions so not to disturb unnecessarily the fabric of reality. It’s already disturbed enough by the outside forces.

As a relevant side note: one new nomination that has gone into effect in the past few days is the new Minister of Agriculture. The incoming minister Alexander Tkachev is the governor of the Krasnodar Kray (region), where the city of Sochi is located. He was instrumental in organizing the 2014 Sochi Olympics and he also presided over bumper harvests in Krasnodar, almost twice what the region produced before him. Krasnodar is Russia’s biggest agri producer, responsible for something like 25% of Russia’s agricultural output. Tkachev is reputed as a VERY good administrator, agriculture being his profession. This nomination is past due. Agriculture needs to be reformed in Russia badly to substitute for imports. Russia is capable of feeding herself fully, and feeding 1/4 of the world, too.

Vladimir Putin Steals the Show in TIME 100 Readers’ Poll

So, despite all the noise and bashing throughout the West, including Ukraine and Eastern Europe, despite the newly invented boycott designed to make all Russians feel bad – that of the May 9th Great Victory celebrations in Moscow – Putin wins the TIME 100 readers’ poll with no contest. That, with nearly 60% of votes cast inside US, plus another 10% coming from Canada and UK.

What is the conclusion? Very simple: those who create all the vicious noise against Russia are the absolute minority, some with ulterior motives and others, because they are hired shills. And their goal is to first weaken, and subsequently, destroy Russia. Considering that Russia is the ultimate Global Balancer, what they are trying to achieve should be clear. When there is no more Global Balancer, they will be able to do whatever they want with our planet!

P.S. Incidentally, ‘Russia as the ultimate Global Balancer’ and related expressions, are my proprietary terms, which are part of my EARTH SHIFT teaching. Read more about that in Predictions. Another part of the EARTH SHIFT system is an idea I first expressed years ago as a linguist and mystical futurist. It establishes a mystical and esoteric connection between Putin and Rasputin. This connection is both profound and important for the entire planet, although a small portion of it is on the surface in the form of the surname association. But it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Listening recently to something on YouTube, I noticed that some started using my Putin-Rasputin parallel as the idea of their own. If the person(s) who’ve done that read these words, make sure you always give credit to the rightful author! Regardless, those who try to parrot someone else’s idea can only do so superficially. They won’t be able to explain the profound underpinnings behind such theory as they simply don’t have enough knowledge to do so.

I do.

You will be able to read all about this fascinating connection between Putin and Rasputin, as well as other mysterious Russian connections and hidden truths, in THE PUTIN ENIGMA – Earth Shift Special Feature. Once you read my report, you will know exactly why Putin always steals the show.

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Reblogged from Talesfromthelou.wordpress.com:

Original article: Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll — RT NewsApril 14, 2015

Russian President Vladimir Putin (RIA Novosti/Alexei Druzhinin)

In a diverse field of competitors made up of pop stars, technology gurus, visionaries and politicians – and at a time when US-Russia relations have hit rock bottom – President Putin has emerged victorious in Time magazine’s 2015 reader poll.

Among the 100 most influential people in the world, as hand selected by the editors of TIME, the Russian leader proved his rock-star credentials by edging out 24-year-old rapper Lee Chae-rin (better known by her stage name, ‘CL’) of the South Korean girl-group 2NE1 to claim the number-one spot with 6.95 percent of the votes in the final tally.

Putin was the only world leader to rank in the top 10, grabbing the global spotlight from the leading divas of pop music: Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Taylor Swift (2.6 percent, 1.9 percent and 1.8 percent of the votes, respectively). Meanwhile, aside from Putin, the only non-celebrities to appear in the top 10 were the Dalai Lama (1.7 percent), Pakistani female activist Malala Yousafzai (1.6 percent) and Pope Francis (1.5 percent).

President Barack Obama narrowly missed the top 10 with 1.4 percent of the votes, while First Lady Michele Obama attracted 1.2 percent.

Putin’s victory appears all the more incredible when you realize that more than half the votes — 57.38 percent — were cast inside the United States, according to TIME (voters representing Canada and the United Kingdom followed with 5.54 percent and 4.55 percent, respectively). The percentage of votes that were cast from Russia has not yet been disclosed.
The Russian leader dominated the charts at a time of unprecedented tensions between Moscow and the West.

US-Russia relations suffered a major setback on November 21, 2013, when then Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich suspended plans for the implementation of an ‘association agreement’ with the European Union, showing a preference for closer Russian relations. This decision triggered violent Maidan protests in the capital Kiev, which eventually led to Yanukovich being forced to flee the country in February 2014.

Since then, Putin has steered his country through the rocks of major events, including a reunification with the Crimea Peninsula after a March 16 referendum, which saw an overwhelming number of people voting for it, and subsequent imposition of Western sanctions against Russian individuals and companies.

Meanwhile, Putin and the Russian economy seem to be weathering out the storm of Western sanctions, imposed in response to the Crimean referendum, as the ruble has bounced back from record lows against the dollar and the Russian stock market is one of the year’s top performers. At the same time, European leaders are cautiously optimistic that the Minsk-II agreement, hammered out between Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine on February 11, 2015, will keep the peace between pro-Kiev forces and rebels in the east of the country.

While it is doubtful that TIME magazine will argue on behalf of Putin’s handling of the Ukrainian crisis, which many commentators in the West predicted would spell the end of the Russian economy, not to mention its leader, one thing that is indisputable is Putin’s incredible staying power.

In fact, this is not the first time Putin has taken top honors in a TIME-sponsored contest. In 2007, Putin was named ‘Person of the Year.’ The popular American magazine summarized its decision for choosing Putin with the explanation: “With dauntless persistence, a sharp vision of what Russia should become and a sense that he embodied the spirit of Mother Russia, Putin has put his country back on the map. And he intends to redraw it himself.”

But perhaps the world is only now beginning to understand what Russians have understood for many years. In December, Vladimir Putin, 62, was named Russia’s “Man of the Year” for an incredible 15th successive year. His approval rating – hovering in the stratosphere around 88 percent – is something most world leaders can only dream of.

As the TIME poll indicates, Vladimir Putin – love him or loathe him – is in a political class all by himself.

The reader’s poll stopped calculating votes at 11:59 pm EST on April 10. The full list of TIME 100 winners will appear on newsstands on April 16.

Rumors of Putin’s Death are Grossly Exaggerated

Putin winks

To paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of Putin’s death are grossly exaggerated.

I got a number of panicked emails, tweets and blog comments from friends and followers, asking me where is Mr. Putin. I am flattered by everyone’s trust in my ability to see through walls and know exactly what is happening in the Kremlin. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t have a direct line to Vladimir Vladimirovich… and if I did, I wouldn’t be writing this post.

Here is what I can tell you today:

I can certainly see how Western governments, MSM and russophobes of all kinds would love for their wet dream of Putin being dead to materialize. After all, the Russian President is so incredibly inconvenient for some in the West. Nemtsov’s false flag murder literally next to the Kremlin Wall was targeting all of Russians and Putin personally. If they can’t kill Putin, why not compromise him. Read: Lada’s Investigation: Who Benefits from the Death of the Russian Opposition Leader Boris Nemtsov?

The unfortunate truth about our human world is that, while some work hard to build and unite, others aim to divide, provoke and destroy.

In 2014, Putin, with his careful and measured actions, managed to prevent World War III (see PREDICTIONS). Putin tirelessly  jetsetted the world for most of the past and the beginning of this year, building a formidable network of alliances, friendships and connections, which will eventually shift the world into the new era. Putin signed multi-billion deals with China, India, Brazil, Argentina, Nicaragua, Turkey, Egypt, and other countries. Eurasian Union was officially formed.

During this period, Putin also managed to change the long-term outlook of the EU from that of being solidly anti-Russian to a more balanced view. Europe, led by Greece, and later by Germany and France, finally started expressing a more independent from the US position regarding relations with Russia, Ukraine crisis, NATO expansion and EU development.

In addition, Putin initiated a number of important strategic projects inside Russia. With the massive shift we are experiencing in so many areas of life, most people may have already forgotten that Sochi Olympics also took place in 2014 (it seems so long ago). Sochi was a massive, one of a kind project, and the athletic achievements of the Russian team were simply stellar. Russian President was hands on with the Olympics as well.

You can read a lot more about what Putin was up to in 2014 – beginning of 2015 in past articles on this blog. I have also talked about that on Lada Ray YT channel.

Putin always amazed people with his productivity. But the amount of important, ground-breaking and Earth-Shifting work Putin managed to accomplish in 2014 and the beginning of 2015 is truly out of this world. I often caught myself thinking during this period that he needed a rest. No matter how strong one’s spirit is, a human physical body has its limitations. If I were his advisor, I’d certainly advise him to take a few days off and kick back at his Novo-Ogarevo residence.

As to Putin not appearing on TV since March 5. Well…

Here is the official President of Russia site in English, which you can also find on my Resources page. On it you can see pictures of Putin meeting with Chairman of Vnesheconombank on 3/6 and with President of the Supreme Court on 3/13. Putin is also scheduled to meet with President of Kyrgyzstan on 3/16 and President of South Ossetia on 3/18. (Here you can also find a related video commentary from RT.)

From my own experience: the energy of mankind as a whole has been extremely difficult to take since last year. There is so much happening in the world: wars, animosity, anger, revolutions, false flags, attempts to start WWIII. People everywhere are confused and angry. We live through a volatile and revolutionary time and it is taxing on the system, especially for those of us who are Earth Keepers and Earth Shifters. These are the people who carry the weight of the world on their shoulders and are also trying to shift the world into a new, higher dimension.

I have written about that in my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER, and partially, in GOLD TRAIN. I also talked about Earth Keepers and Earth Shifters in this interview. It is the most difficult place to be and one has to be a supremely strong soul to be able to withstand the brunt of the negativity emanating from most humans and so many countries, and still be able to do their job of holding the world together, keeping balance and shifting the world into a better future.

Trust me, I know. As a powerful empath, I am extremely sensitive to energy, and for me the entire 2014 was hard. But the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015 was especially difficult health-wise. Many people who are highly evolved souls, especially those who are Earth Keepers, have been ill during this period, from colds/inflammations and broken ankles to tooth or back problems, to name a few. This is natural as someone has to carry the load, and those who do, pay the price with their health. It would have been easier if more humans helped out with this load, instead of making it more difficult.

If Putin is taking a few days off and is staying away from cameras, he is absolutely right to do so.

Predictions:

Putin still has a lot to accomplish; his important contribution is needed for the ongoing EARTH SHIFT. After a little tune up, I expect he will be back stronger and healthier than ever by March 16th.

Nemtsov murder exposed some long-brewing differences within Russian government. I would say that changes on many levels, including nationalization of the ruble and creating a more patriotic government (without pro-West liberals), are needed. Some want those changes faster than cautious Putin is ready to deliver them.

Soon, there may be certain changes in the Kremlin and Russian government, but I wouldn’t expect them to be too big at this point. Medvedev will stay as PM, despite many forces wanting him out. But those in the West who are longing to see the cracks in the Russian government – this won’t happen. Just the opposite: I expect further consolidation of the government and people around Putin.

I will write about the special relationship between Putin and Medvedev, and its significance, in the upcoming EARTH SHIFT REPORT: THE PUTIN ENIGMA. Stay tuned for it!

P.S. Incidentally, I am taking a few days off to celebrate hubby’s and my birthdays. I’ll be checking my blog and email. NO rumors please. Despite taking a break, I can assure you, I am also alive and well. 😉

Vladimir Putin Interview: “I Don’t See the Apocalyptic Scenario Materializing” (with my English translation)

Vladimir Putin: “I Don’t See the Apocalyptic Scenario Materializing.”

On February 23, Russia celebrated the traditional DAY OF THE PROTECTOR OF THE FATHERLAND. On this day, Russian President Vladimir Putin gave an interview to the talk show host Vladimir Solovyov, whom I mentioned previously in my piece about Russian analysts and geopolitical shows: My recommendations: Top Russian Geopolitical Analysts.

Vladimir Putin said that:

He doesn’t see materializing the apocalyptic scenario of a full-scale war between Russia and Ukraine. Volatile statements such as Poroshenko’s promise to get back Crimea at any cost don’t help. Crimean land does and always will belong to Russians, Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars, as well as Greeks and Germans – together with the core population, there are Greeks and Germans living in Crimea as well. As to what country Crimea belongs with, the vote to secede and join Russia was the choice of the Crimeans, and such choice must be respected. Russia certainly can’t ignore or disrespect it. “Hopefully, our partners abroad will soon come to respect the people’s choice as well.”

A large European country such as Ukraine must first focus on how to normalize life and how to stop bloodshed on its territory. Ukraine needs to fix its economy and social sphere, and start talking in a civilized way to the South-East of the country. Ukraine also needs to respect its people’s rights. To make all this happen, Minsk agreements must be implemented.

Those who follow the statements by Putin and Lavrov, would be interested to know that in this interview the always careful Putin for the first time uses the words ‘our opponents’ when talking about US. Before that, both Lavrov and Putin always used the words ‘our partners’ when referring to Americans. This is in stark contrast to the US customarily referring to Russia as ‘axis of evil’, one of the three threats (per Obama) the ‘world’ faces today, the other two being ‘Ebola and ISIS.’

Putin still uses the words ‘our partners’ when referring to the EU/Germany/France, thus signalling the differentiation in approach and acknowledging a rift between US and EU.

Putin also notes that the West doesn’t see the obvious, namely, that there is a civil war in Ukraine, not Russian invasion, because it doesn’t want to. “World-wide MSM monopoly allows our opponents to behave the way they do.”

Putin continues: “The recent hostile remarks by Kerry and Poroshenko may be a reaction to my, not very careful, remark during my recent visit to Hungary. I said that it was embarrassing to lose to former Donbass miners and tractor drivers. It would be bad if they lost to Russia, but not nearly as embarrassing as losing to the simple Donbass citizens.”

In conclusion, Putin very diplomatically remarked that he personally got an impression that Merkel and Hollande were genuine in their desire to avert war and to bring peace to Ukraine. Although the relations between Russia and Germany/France aren’t fully back to normal and trust hasn’t been re-established yet, there is an improvement.

Watch Putin’s video interview in Russian

Russian:

В.СОЛОВЬЁВ: Уважаемый господин Президент, только что вся страна отметила День защитника Отечества, а на территории братской Украины теперь это считается днём захвата Крыма, и Порошенко заявляет, что сделает всё возможное для того, чтобы вернуть Крым. Какова стадия сейчас российско-украинских отношений? Проснёмся ли мы в один день, узнав, что началась война?

В.ПУТИН: Я думаю, что такой апокалипсический сценарий вряд ли возможен, и надеюсь, что до этого никогда не дойдёт.
