Video preview of this report:

I confess, in the title I initially wanted to call Dodon ‘The Trump of E. Europe.’ In many ways he is like Trump: he was brought to power by people’s vote, despite powers that be who were in staunch opposition; he tries to implement change in direct opposition to the parliament and elites, not to mention the US and EU. But he also doesn’t act like Trump in many ways. Where there is conflict he seeks peaceful resolution and reconciliation, where there is a problem he personally tries to find a good compromise and mutually profitable solution. He doesn’t start wars, he loves Russia and is proud of having been born in the USSR; he is tough on the West and he wants Moldova to join Eurasian Union.

Unlike Trump, and much like Putin, he tends to surprise on the upside. He does things beyond what anyone expects of him, and this is the true mark of a leader.

In many ways, such as desire for cooperation instead of confrontation, peaceful tendencies and pragmatic approach, working quietly and steadily on the country’s future, despite having to withstand constant threats and opposition from oligarchy and elites, current president of Moldova Igor Dodon reminds me of Putin in the beginning of his tenure as Russia’s president.

MOLDOVA ELECTIONS Lada Ray Feb 11, 2019 Update

Parliamentary elections in Moldova sneaked up quietly. They take place on February 24, 2019 and they are more important than most realize. These elections will essentially decide which way Moldova will turn in the next few years, towards Russia or the West.

This map shows Moldova (or Moldavia). The long sliver on the left is the breakaway, pro-Russian and Russian-supported Pridnestrovie (Transnistria), which was the only industrialized area of the Moldavian SSR. Near the bottom is Gagauzia, the autonomous republic within Moldova, populated with Russian Orthodox Turkic language people. Gagauzia has its separate special relationship with Russia, and it proclaimed that it will secede and join Russia if Moldova is absorbed by Romania/EU. Gagauzia remains a balancing factor within Moldova, not allowing it to become absorbed by Romania.

Despite a small size and economic weakness of Moldova, its super-important geopolitical position between Russian Pridnestrovie, Ukraine and Romania/Balkans makes Moldova a big prize, true harbinger of change and a swing state bar none! The Moldavian choice may influence Ukraine, post-Soviet Space, the Balkans and Europe! At the very minimum it will influence the Russian-leaning Odessa and Southeast of Ukraine. For Russia, Moldova suddenly became an important country, as relations with Ukraine soured. How important is evident from the number of times in the past couple of years Moldova’s President Dodon has been in Moscow, meeting with Putin, Medvedev, Gazprom’s Alexey Miller, and participating in international forums at Russian government’s invitation.

Dodon is known not only for his firm desire for Moldova to become a part of the Customs Union with Russia through Eurasian Union, but also for his balanced, pragmatic and practical approach to Moldova’s affairs. He wants Moldova to be a bridge between EU and Russia, but rejects Euro-integration, saying that no one needs Moldovan agricultural produce in Europe, where there is an overabundance of its own cheese, wine, grapes, plums and apples. Russia is Moldova’s traditional market, which was developed through centuries of living and working together. This is in addition to the natural affinity through Orthodox Church, common history, Russian culture and language. Out of over 3 million country’s citizens, anywhere between 700,000 and 1 million live and work in Russia. Moldova adds billions of dollars annually to its GDP through the money sent back from Russia by migrant workers.

~~~~

We are approaching May Holidays (RUS: Maiskie prazdniki) 

What is that? Maiskie prazdniki is the cumulative name for two holidays: May Day on May 1, which is celebrated as both the day of spring and nature and as the international day of worker solidarity, and May 9, or Victory Day, marking the end of WWII and the Russian victory. Both are very widely celebrated in the entire Russian World / post-Soviet space.

During this period the provocations and clashes in Ukraine are widely expected. Also expected are provocations in other post-Soviet and Eastern Europe countries.

Poland’s war against monuments to Soviet soldiers, those who died liberating Poland from fascism

Polish government is descending more and more into fascism. It has announced the dismantling of something like 500 monuments to Russian soldiers, who liberated Poland during WWII. Hundreds of thousands of Russian and other Soviet soldiers who gave their lives for Poland, had been buried on Polish land. In the past several years vandals desecrated many Russian burial sites and Polish authorities dismantled many Russian monuments. In fact, those local mayors who resist dismantling monuments experience threats from the government and Polish nationalists.

It has to be noted that some simple Poles have been writing to the Russian Foreign Ministry with apologies for the actions of the Polish vandals destroying the Russian soldiers’ graves all over the country and the Polish government destroying monuments. Some try to restore and protect them. I’ll refrain from posting the graphic images here, but you can find them online, or search for videos on YT.

In this post I wasn’t planning on invoking the obvious word: karma. But there will be consequences for such actions. I’m not talking about any ‘Russian vengeance’ here. Not at all. I am talking about divine justice.

Incidentally, I warned about Poland’s descent into madness, isolation and hatred since 2014. Back then, a Polish woman indignantly wrote to me that I had no idea what I was talking about, that Poland would never, blah, blah… And, oh, look: just a couple of years later – as predicted!

Their biggest fear is the United Eurasia: the plan to keep Europe and Russia separate 

The campaign of dismantling Russian monuments and other anti-Russian hysteria in Poland is accompanied with the usual BS about ‘Russian occupation.’

This convenient mantra was slapped together by the Transatlantic handlers for their current Eastern Europe vassals back in the 1960s-1980s. At that time it was used to tear as many countries as possible away from the USSR. Today it serves the purpose of artificially keeping the people of Eastern Europe and Russia apart. By stoking a fire wall of animosity between Russia and EU’s Eastern Europe members, the puppet masters are able to keep the Iron Curtain between Western Europe and Russia alive and well.

This is all a part of the same global game of weakening and isolating Russia from the rest of Europe. The creators of this lie are the same as the creators of anti-Russian sanctions and the ‘subversion’ of Ukraine. They will do anything to keep Russia and Europe apart. The thing they fear most is the re-unification of Eurasia into one continuous cooperative and mutually beneficial space – as it historically was and as it’s supposed to be.

In ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT I talk at length about Stratfor Baltic-Black Sea Plan and how Poland is being used to erect a new Iron Curtain between EU and Russia.

Please read ESR8 for a full picture, tying together the worrying events in Poland, Odessa, Pridnestrovie, Moldova, the Balkans and Caucasus. Nothing that happens in those convoluted for the Westerners parts, happens by accident!

The whole truth about Hitler and Nazi Germany

The destruction of Ukraine on all levels continues. A big part of it is the destruction of human memory, re-writing of the genetic code and own history. As Ukraine descends into fascist madness, it is simultaneously ‘decommunizing.’

Hmm… we’ve seen this before in one nice European country, called Germany. The outcome of the German Nazis’ all-consuming thirst for denial and destruction of others is well-known: it caused the near destruction of Germany itself.

It’s amazing to me how short and selective human memory is! I hear everywhere – even heard it a couple of times from my own readers – that Hitler was a good guy and that it was UK and US that made him take the slippery road to destruction. Frankly, I have very little patience with people like that, so I’ll just say it this once.

One: these are the kind of people who think they are independent thinkers because they read this in some obscure book and because they think it’s unconventional to think this way. In reality, they simply regurgitate someone’s hidden agenda.

Two: Yes, it is true that Hitler and Germany were manipulated into starting World War II. Simultaneously, they were pumped up with credits and technology by UK and US. The ultimate goal of this scheme was to unleash Hitler on Russia/USSR in order to destroy the only country that always stood, and continues standing, in the way of Anglo-American globalist expansion and the complete takeover of the world. Along the way, they wanted to destroy another rival – Germany itself.

However, the whole point of being a national leader is to be smart enough to see the pitfalls and traps prepared for you and your country. I am leaving aside Hitler’s hideous national-fascist Nazi ideology, which is partially explainable by Germany’s defeat in WWI. But only just. Again, who was forcing Germany to BEGIN WWI? Yes, they were manipulated by the same forces. But where was the wisdom and common sense?

There, obviously, was none. Incidentally, a German philosopher said: ‘Every country deserves its government.’ Germans ELECTED Hitler and watched indifferently as he prosecuted those who had a different opinion inside the country. The people of Germany also watched and participated(!) as Hitler invaded and looted country after country. Incidentally, the same was true for Japan, which invaded and brutally killed millions of Chinese, Mongols and other Asians.

IF national leadership and the people of Germany allowed themselves to succumb to outside manipulation, if they knowingly benefited from the tragedy and suffering of millions of others, if they CHOSE to purposefully and willingly participate in inflicting terrible destruction on the peaceful people all over the globe – they are responsible and there is nothing that can change that! Hitler and all those who were a part of the German/Japanese/Romanian aggression against other countries are war criminals and their crimes can never be forgotten, unless humans want a repeat of 1914, 1939 and 1941.

Some may say there was no choice. There always is a choice! Some Germans went to concentration camps or were killed because they spoke up. Others became anti-fascists and resistance partisans, or surrendered to Russian troops because they refused to participate in the massacre of Russians, Soviets and Europeans.

Three: I just have one simple number for you – 27 million lives. This is what Hitler’s and Romanian aggression (in Odessa and Moldavia) cost Russia and the entire USSR. Primary losses were in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. Two members of my family died and more were wounded during the Great War of 1941-1945.

36 million Chinese were massacred by the Japanese aggressors during WWII period.

Incidentally, I have absolutely no problem with German people. Two of my best friends in school were Germans; I love Germany and German culture. Same goes for American, Polish, Japanese, or any other people anywhere on the globe.

It’s not about anyone’s culture or nationality – it’s about world view and civilizational choice. It’s also about one’s conscience.

That said, on this site we have zero tolerance for anyone who promotes Hitler or Nazis/fascists of any sort. Permanent ban will be implemented against anyone who posts such comments. See BLOG RULES on top bar.

What Russia really wants in Ukraine

Ukraine won’t be able to repeat the German fate, no matter how much Kiev ukro-nazis try, because Russia won’t let that happen. If Russia weren’t doing everything to keep Ukraine from descending into ultimate madness and complete self-destruction, if Russia played by the same devious rules as the West, by now we would see the entire territory of Ukraine in the midst of civil war. The loss of life, coupled with the destruction of most infrastructure, would be much more widespread.

As it stands, Ukraine is doing an excellent job of imploding all by itself, even when others try hard to cushion the fall.

I wrote in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT that the West has no idea how many means of secret influence, intel gathering and sabotage Russia does possess in Odessa. The same exact thing is true for all of Ukraine. The reason Russia isn’t using these means is one and only: Russia is trying to preserve the lives, infrastructure and psyche of Ukrainians.

Russia is doing everything humanly possible to gently neutralize the US plan: turning one part of the Russian people against another part of the Russian people.

The West is using Ukraine as a puppet and a disposable tool to manipulate and weaken Russia.

Meanwhile, Russia’s goal is to keep Ukraine as intact as possible in the midst of self-inflicted destructive psychosis, activated and supported by foreign entities. Feel the crucial difference!

As I predicted back in 2014: Russia continues carefully and patiently remolding the situation in Ukraine, which eventually will lead to Ukraine’s turnaround. To do that, Russia is absolutely correctly treating Ukraine with kid gloves, even when it doesn’t deserve them.

Russia is Ukraine’s only hope for survival. Russia treats Ukraine and Ukrainians with kindness and forgiveness of a mother or father, who, despite the cruelty and bad behavior of a prodigal child, knows that one day that child will learn its lesson and return home. No one else needs or wants Ukraine, with all its problems.

Despite all difficulties, this, only correct, strategy is starting to bear fruit. Look at how different some European countries’ position is today, compared to 2014! Remember my 2014 predictions? More and more people in Ukraine and West will be awakening to the understanding of what’s going on; slowly, gradually, Ukraine will be turning back towards Russia and away from the West.

But the task ahead is truly monumental. After 25+ years of Soros/US/ukro-nazi brainwashing, coupled with oligarchic infestation and socio-economic disaster, some younger Ukrainians had forgotten who they were, succumbing to anti-Russian propaganda. It will be very hard, but possible, to rehabilitate this lost generation.

As it is, Ukraine had lost its way 25 years ago and it must go through this cleansing process. When health has been neglected for so long, the cleansing never looks pretty. There is no way of going forward without getting rid of old problems first.

But on the surface, it seems the opposite to my hopeful forecast is taking place. Today’s situation in Ukraine resembles the expression ‘it’s darkest before the dawn.’

Chernobyl 2: New nuclear disaster in the making!

On the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl tragedy, the loud expert warnings sound that the remaining functioning Ukrainian nuclear stations are a disaster waiting to happen. They have begun replacing the compatible Russian nuclear fuel with American Westinghouse fuel, which proved to be incompatible. This fuel was previously rejected by other Russian-built nuclear stations, for example, in Slovakia and in Ukraine itself.

Kiev’s severing ties with Russia means that stations are not being properly maintained and Russian-made parts are not replaced on time. All four stations are getting old, approaching a point of no return. Using the incompatible Westinghouse parts may lead to a catastrophe.

The biggest worry is the reckless exploitation schedule. Due to power shortages after Ukraine refused to maintain the unified power grid with Russia, operators are forced to constantly speed up reactors to maximum capacity during peak hours. Such experiments led to Chernobyl catastrophe 30 years ago.

The Elenovka tragedy

Two days ago Kiev executed a targeted bombing against peaceful civilians. Six people were killed, including a pregnant woman, and scores wounded, in Elenovka village. These people were sitting in their cars near border control post between DNR and Ukraine, waiting in line to cross to the other side. Some of them were retirees forced to drive to Ukrainian side to get their pensions, others – on their way to visit families or tend to their fields stuck on the other side.

Because Kiev continues shutting down border crossings, more and more have to use the same crossing, resulting in long lines. People sometimes have to spend the night in their cars, waiting for their turn to cross. Just before the shelling, locals reported hearing a Ukrainian drone, and shortly after, the Minsk-agreement banned heavy Ukrainian artillery began shelling cars with sleeping people inside.

Link to video with the aftermath of the Elenovka tragedy. Warning! It’s very graphic!

In my recent post Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf? I said:

“If Kiev can’t attack directly, what can Ukraine do? Instead, they are attempting to provoke DNR and LNR. To accomplish that they continuously shell peaceful citizens and villages near frontline. The idea is to anger the republics so much that they lose their cool and begin retaliating, thus breaking Minsk 2 agreement. After that Kiev, US and EU get to blame DNR/LNR and, of course, Russia in violating cease-fire. If that should happen, Kiev and US will immediately demand new sanctions against Russia and attempt to vilify Russia and Putin yet again.

This is why DNR/LNR can’t respond to obvious provocations. The especial cruelty of the situation is in the fact that innocent people and animals suffer under shellings, with no recourse.”

This new provocation falls in line with Kiev tactics of trying to provoke DNR/LNR into retaliating. Poroshenko is desperate. He is being pressured by EU, and now even by US due the election year, to start fulfilling Minsk agreement’s demands. He can’t do that because his own Rada will tear him apart. His only choice is to re-start armed conflict in Donbass to delay Minsk-2 fulfillment. This is why provocations, targeting peaceful civilians, will continue.

My prediction is that the Elenovka tragedy won’t go as planned by Kiev. The plan to provoke DNR into retaliating is needed to distract Ukraine’s public from internal problems, to re-ignite animosity against Russia, to delay the implementation of Minsk 2, to blame the republics for breaking the truce, and to instigate renewed sanctions against Russia in the wake of EU gearing up for their removal. However, all this will backfire.

Instead, the brutal killing of innocents will serve as yet another clear international proof of Kiev breaking the Minsk agreements. This event will put yet another nail in the coffin of the Kiev junta and its support by the West (many more nails still required, but it’s a start). If not, then EU, US, Canada, IMF and NATO will publicly demonstrate to all that they condone the slaughter of innocent civilians. Before some crucial referendums and elections, and in view of recent EU and US criticisms, this won’t look good.

The revolt in the EU has already begun: French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU. Recently, the people of the Netherlands have voted ‘NO’ in a referendum on Ukraine’s EU association. These are the first harbingers of spring, more to come soon!

Ukraine’s war on monuments – war on its history and genetic memory

Scores and scores of Lenin monuments have been destroyed all over Ukraine. Let’s recall that ‘Ukraine’ as a state-like entity was first created by Lenin as part of the USSR. Before that, there was no country called Ukraine, not even an autonomy.

The destruction of Lenin and other monuments all over Ukraine is accompanied with the wholesale looting and re-sale of parts of these monuments. The video below shows how many such monuments were destroyed and how the enterprising ukro-nazis posted ads all over the internet to sell parts of ‘Illich.’ A whole bust of Lenin, painted in blue-yellow Ukrainian colors, slightly dented: $35,000. Another internet ad about a sale of parts of what used to be a Lenin monument: ‘own a piece of history: made out of rare material, the same used to build the Red Square Mausoleum, price depends on body part.’ Disgusted yet? I am.

If Ukraine’s president, parliament, oligarchs and army can sell the entire country, why can’t these small ‘wheelers-and-dealers’ sell pieces of their history and heritage?

Video (The map of destroyed monuments reads: ’25 monuments to Lenin were destroyed, 5 – attempted to be destroyed.’ By now, I’d say there are many more):

 

This is the newest one, which happened yesterday: in Kiev, Ukraine, Ukrainian fascists from ‘the right sector and ‘azov’ tried to destroy Soviet monument to Chekisti – RUS: чекисты. The monument is to the first Extraordinary Commission’s servicemen circa Russian Civil War and first years of the USSR (1918-1925). The abbreviation ‘чк’ (pronounced as ‘chekah’) was used to designate the counter-intelligence investigative unit, establish by Lenin in 1918. Later it would be called NKVD and after that, KGB.

Again, let’s remember that without Lenin the entity we today call Ukraine would NOT exist. The territory was slapped together of a number of different areas of South Russia (Yuzhnaya Rossia, aka, Novorossia) and Malorossia (below see my guide to the parts of Ukraine).

VIDEO: ukro-nazis attempting to destroy the granite monument, with hardly a dent.

While not everyone agrees with the methods used by the Chekisti, it is still a part of Russian, Soviet, and therefore Ukrainian, history. Its role was often viewed as controversial, but also necessary, for as long as the country was in the deathly fight for its very survival.

The right thing to do is to accept what happened as part of the country’s history. Only by making peace with the past can one move forward. If you deny your past, your history, you deny yourself. In this regard, Russians are wisely accepting all facets of their past, good and bad. This is why Russia today is where it is, and Ukraine is where it is. 

The Chekisti monument was built to last. As you see from this short clip, despite many days of efforts to destroy it, the monument was hardly dented. As one person commented: ‘The Chekisti are just looking down with disdain on these morons.’

The destruction of monuments in Poland and Ukraine are manifestations of the same darkness-induced craze that we are observing in Syria, where ISIS destroys priceless, UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as ancient Palmyra.

Normal people build. The urge to destroy what others have built is a manifestation of an overwhelming darkness experienced by the confused, undereducated and zombified minds, with violent tendencies.

Ukraine is a large country. A small minority of these thugs keeps in fear the majority. But I have to emphasize yet again that none of this would have been possible if these dregs of society were not supported and encouraged by the West! The West, especially and specifically the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Brussels, as well as their stooges in Poland and Lithuania, actively supported and nudged these crazies.

During Kiev maidan, Victoria Nuland and US ambassador Payet personally blackmailed Ukraine president Yanukovich and PM Azarov, threatening them with forced removal from power and personal harm, if the government tried to resist maidan violence and restore order. Similar pressure was put by the EU governments and politicians.

Under any normal circumstances and in any normal society such people would have been in jail, which would deter others. Instead, they were touted as heroes. The all-permissiveness always breads more violence.

The biggest criminals are those from the West who came to Ukraine with the expressed goal to generate violence, hatred and death.

Due to severe imbalance, which the world has experienced in the past 25 years since the collapse of the USSR, the weakened Russia was unable to fulfill her global balancing and stabilizing role. Large numbers of the world’s young people have succumbed to propaganda. This propaganda could be Western, emphasizing Russophobia. But it could be extremist Islamist just as well. It could also be fascist propaganda, stressing the resurgence of the popularity of Hitler and Nazi ideology of hatred and destruction. All these may have a different wrapper and flavor, but their essence is always the same: aggression, hatred, destruction and harm to others, while enriching yourself.

Putin for president and Azarov for PM of Ukraine

Since 2014, most Ukrainians lived in shock and fear. Some were zombified and confused. But the change is coming, the awakening is happening, slowly but surely.

In BLACK SEA GAMBIT I said that if a referendum to join Russia took place in Odessa today, 90% would have voted ‘YES.’ Very similar numbers would be true for the entire South and East. Even Kiev and sane parts of western Ukraine may surprise us.

Kiev just swapped the inept PM Yatsenyuk, who presided over the 2014-2015 destruction of Ukraine’s economy, for the equally inept PM Groysman, who is Poroshenko’s puppet. A poll conducted in Kiev showed that only 29% approved of Groysman as PM, while 58% wanted back Nikolay Azarov, who was PM under Yanukovich. Some now say that ‘Azarov was the best thing that happened to Ukraine in 25 years.’

An earlier poll conducted in Ukraine showed that 82% of Ukrainians wanted Putin as their president.

Renaming of streets, factories and cities – another maniacal epidemics sweeping Ukraine

As part of ‘decommunization,’ streets, factories and major enterprises are being renamed. The citizens are resisting it as much as they can. There are instances when the new name sounds suspiciously similar to the old one. Example: under pressure, a factory in Donetsk oblast (the part located on Ukraine side), was renamed from the ‘Illich Kombinat’ to… the ‘Illich Kombinat.’ Illich is Lenin’s patronymic and he was often called by this alternative name. ‘We renamed it after a worker of this factory, whose patronymic was also Illich,’ explained the locals.

They made an attempt to rename Odessa and call it ‘Kotsyubiyivsk’ (try not to break your tongue). Of course, if they succeeded, that alone would have caused Odessa to secede.

Wholesale destruction of Russian monuments

Under the guise of decommunization, ukro-nazis are destroying monuments to Russian scientists, writers, artists and also generals, who liberated Ukraine during WWII. In 2014, under the cover of the night, they removed the Odessa monument to General Chernyakhovsky, who commanded the army liberating Odessa. I bet Chernyakhovsky’s bust has already been sold to the highest bidder. Just like the ancient monuments of Syria, Ukrainian monuments, or their pieces, end up on the black market, often being sold to Western ‘collectors.’

Pushkin

Odessa, monument to Pushkin on Primorsky Boulevard

This greedy and senseless destruction of everything in sight is happening all over Ukraine. Recently, the famous monument to the 19th century writer Pushkin was under threat in Odessa. Ukro-nazis are continuously threatening to destroy the gorgeous monument to Katherine the Great, founder of Odessa. Obviously, aristocrat Pushkin and the Empress of Russia were ‘damn communists’ and had to be purged. Both monuments are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage site and were saved due to the widespread international indignation.

LADA’S GUIDE TO UKRAINE

Old map of Odessa

End of 19th century English map of South Russia and Malorossia (Little Russia)

Ukraine was slapped together out of several parts, of which the majority was, and continues being, completely Russian-speaking, despite all the brainwashing. This was done by Lenin in 1922 for several reasons: geopolitical, internal political, psychological and ideological. I explain in detail what those reasons were in ESR2: UKRAINE and ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS.

While we all were a part of one big Soviet Union, no one was bothered by it that much. People were prepared to tolerate being a part of Ukraine even after the breakup, as long as they were able to easily commute to Russia for better jobs, sell their stuff to Russia, and be a part of the Russian culture through TV, books and concerts. But now they are unable to do any of that: Russian TV, journalists, artists, writers, cultural icons and political figures have been banned in Ukraine.

I believe I’ve mentioned this in Black Sea Gambit: Kiev is so afraid of the truth that they have banned me and my blog, FuturisTrendcast! Ukrainians can’t read my blog directly, but of course, there are many methods to bypass the ban in a roundabout way.

As soon as these bans began happening, this is when everyone suddenly began remembering that in fact they were never supposed to be a part of Ukraine, that Kiev usurped power and that they really wanted to go back to their roots.

Parts of Russia that became parts of Ukraine in 1922 and later:

Donbass (spelled out as the Donets Basin –  RUS: Donetskiy Bassein) – presently Donetsk/DNR and Lugansk/LNR.

South Russia, basically consisting of the historic Tavria and Bessarabia. The Black Sea coast, including Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson. Pridnestrovie (breakaway Transnistria) and pars of Moldova are included. The famous Tavrian steppes stretch along Black Sea from Odessa to Kherson and into Crimea.

Crimea (aka, Tavrida) – now a part of Russia again.

True Russian territories, including the ancient Chernigov, Kharkov/ Slobozhanshina (the area which was part of the lands gifted by Empress to the South Russian Cossacks), Dnepropetrovsk and more – what is often referred to as  ‘Eastern Ukraine.’ Dnepropetrovsk, located next to Zaporozhie, is also a part of the traditionally Cossack territory.

Original Zaporozhie Cossacks territories – presently the industrial city of Zaporozhie and Zaporozhie Oblast. I talk at length and explain everything about the amazing, colorful culture of the South Russian Cossacks in ESR6: NEW KHAZARIAN KHAGANATE. 

Everything I listed above is historically referred to as Novorossia (New Russia), although of course Russians (Russo-Arian Slavs) lived on these lands for millennia.

Present capital Kiev and poor, agricultural center and north of today’s Ukraine 1000+ years ago were called Kievan Rus, and 300-100 years ago – Malorossia.

Today’s Western Ukraine is correctly called Galitskaya Rus and Podkarpatskaya Rus. These are the lands of the Galician and Carpathian Rusins (RUS: Rusini; incorrect English: Ruthenians). During medieval times there was a pretty large Galitskaya Rus state there, which was invaded at different times by Poland, Lithuania and Austria-Hungary, who eventually destroyed it.

How Putin/Lavrov Outplayed Merkel, Hollande, Obama

& Why Poroshenko Cannot Restart Donbass War

In the midst of today’s gruesome Ukrainian landscape, there is something that has, perhaps, a more positive tone.

Donetsk warns of imminent Kiev attack on DNR and LNR

Donbass braces itself for the new offensive by Kiev. Eduard Basurin from DNR ministry of defence and the head of DNR, Alexander Zakharchenko, continue to warn that Kiev is amassing troops and hardware in order to attack both republics.

However, as I said previously, I simply do not see how they may be able to pull it off (read my analysis in Poroshenko Prepares New War in Donbass? Why US, EU and OSCE are Blind and Deaf?

Additional analysis and predictions

The thing is that Poroshenko has to make certain noises to appease the radicals and ukro-nazis. But as far as real actions go, he really is tied up pretty tight. Besides, as we have determined previously, Ukraine is being slowly but surely ‘flushed down’ by the US and EU (as I predicted since 2014).

The Dutch referendum on Ukraine’s EU association sent a clear message. So did Biden’s advice to Kiev Rada to begin federalization process ASAP. So did yesterday’s French parliament’s vote to lift anti-Russian sanctions (French parliament votes to lift anti-Russian sanctions imposed by EU). And this is just the beginning!

But there is more:

The more information comes out about the atrocities and lies of the Kiev junta, the more EU citizens question the position of their governments. Europeans question more and more the propaganda that told them that Russia was bad, Kiev maidan was good and that EU did the right thing backing Kiev together with USA. The longer anti-Russian sanctions last, the more EU farmers, shippers and industrialists get impatient. Meanwhile some notice that while EU trade with Russia shrunk dangerously, US trade with Russia INCREASED! And that’s in the midst of sanctions! Slowly, US companies are taking over EU business with Russia.

More and more Europeans are realizing they were simply duped and the revolt is brewing.

Merkel, Hollande and other former advocates of anti-Russian sanctions now have no choice but to support Minsk-2 peace agreement at all cost, since the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions has been tied to its fulfillment. In a way, EU as a whole has cornered itself by imposing sanctions on Russia and tying them to Minsk-2 fulfillment.

Neither DNR/LNR nor Kiev are really planning to fulfill Minsk 2 in full. It is actually impossible to do so while this Kiev junta is in power. Poroshenko and his government can PRETEND to implement only certain points. The entire Minsk-2 in principle cannot be implemented until after the ukro-nazi Kiev junta is gone.

This signifies that:

1. What I said from the beginning of 2014: EU elites are inept and don’t understand at all what they are doing, which European citizens are finally beginning to grasp.

2. Merkel, Hollande and others will have to support Donbass truce at all cost. They are being watched by opposition and electorate. The alternative means they and/or their parties will lose the next election for sure. Recall my 2012 prediction about Hollande betraying the hopes of his electorate! As to Merkel, the recent 11% drop in her ratings will continue accelerating. All in all, her political career is finished. It’ll take time, but she’s on her way down.

3. EU supporting Poroshenko’s new offensive on DNR/LNR will give additional ammunition to eurosceptics and accelerate the breakup of the EU.

4. As I predicted in 2014, Putin and Lavrov were absolutely right not to antagonize Europe, continuing to patiently work with them throughout Ukraine crisis and despite their openly provocative, anti-Russian attitudes. This patience and lack of antagonism looks a little toothless to some. I had said that it was the only correct approach.

We’ve already been through this in 2008 with Georgia and several times during 2000s, when Ukraine shut off Russian gas to EU. They yell and scream, and stomp their feet. Then they calm down and recognize that Russia isn’t a monster and that, may be, just may be, they jumped the gun.

I know, I know. Putin, Lavrov, and Russia in general, are the only adults in the room and their patience is truly angelic. While Obama and US destabilize everything they get their hands on, Russian foreign policy is the only thing that keeps the world from plunging into a new global war.

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Odessa’s cold spring 2016: city and oblast are bracing for blood and violence on May 2 and May 9!

This spring is especially hard for Odessa. After Crimea and DNR/LNR, Odessa is the biggest symbol of resistance against the Kiev junta. May 2, 2016 is the 2nd anniversary of the terrible tragedy, when 48, or likely more, people were burned alive on Kulikovo Polie. Kiev and ukro-nazis, together with Saakashvili, are determined to make a bloodbath out of the May 2 and May 9 in Odessa. Thousands and thousands of trained ukro-nazis from ‘azov’ battalion and western Ukraine have descended on Odessa. Provocations are expected everywhere. Tensions are the highest since 2014. Basically, people are gearing up for civil war and fear the repeat of May 2 massacre.

What is happening can be big and is also a harbinger of important changes in Ukraine and around the Russian World.

On Monday, May 2,

I’ll publish part 2 of the UKRAINE report: The ODESSA Report!

Read it in conjunction with my timely ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT,

dedicated primarily to Odessa & Black Sea events and conspiracies!

Kherson Oblast is dying — and Crimean Agenda ESR

As I remember it growing up, Kherson once was a quiet sleepy hollow, complete with untouched, contemplative nature, robust agriculture and down to earth people.

Kherson is dying: it is experiencing a disastrous invasion of ukro-nazis and Islamists from ISIS, Turkey and Crimean Tatar Mejlis, which is recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia. The damage to the environment is terrible and the damage to the population is catastrophic.

Their ultimate goal is to squeeze out the native, Slavic population and replace it with Muslim transplants. It may sound crazy and bizarre, but it’s not so incredible if you look at the map and notice that Kherson Oblast borders Crimea to the south – the only land connection to the Crimean Peninsula.

Having lost Crimea, US, Turkey and Kiev have concocted a plan to destabilize it through Kherson. All this is a part of the bigger agenda to destabilize Russia by creating zones of instability all around Black and Caspian Seas. To those who plan all this, people’s lives don’t matter.

All this is the topic of the upcoming new Earth Shift Report

The Battle for Eurasia! CRIMEAN AGENDA

NEW Crimean agenda ESR10 6

It’s an explosive and eye-opening Earth Shift Report, crucial for understanding the Russian and global geopolitical situation. However, due to urgent May events surrounding Odessa, Russia and EU, I’ll be postponing it till further notice. Since Crimean – Kherson situation is still in development, CRIMEAN AGENDA will come a little later. Please stay tuned!

Putin’s Advisor Sergei Glazyev on Eurofascism. Did Russia and China Lose Propaganda War to the US?

Dear readers, because I am going on vacation, I am posting a total of three new pieces today. They are all different and give a voice to my readers. I just love engaging my readers, so please continue leaving good, helpful to the discussion, and responsible comments! The most interesting ones I may turn into an article or a cool debate.

Have a great 4th, if you are celebrating; if not, just have a terrific weekend.

******

This article is a compilation of several reader communications and my replies. These are all important topics and I felt they deserved to be posted here. En lieu of a full article, I thought I’d combine 3 topics in one.

1. Glazyev on Eurofascism and 100 years of anti-Russian subversion of Ukraine

Many thanks to the FuturisTrendcast reader, John Durham for an except from his own article, and for his nice words. Also, many thanks to him for alerting me to this excellent article by Sergei Glazyev, advisor to Russia’s President Putin and Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Glazyev’s article summarizes everything that is happening in Ukraine, including the roles of the EU and US, as well as last 100 years of the long and scandalous history of the anti-Russian activity by the West. Sergei Glazyev’s words mirror pretty much exactly what I have been saying in my articles since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. Incidentally, Sergei Glazyev, like myself, grew up in Ukraine.

John Durham says:

This is an article from one of the leading advisors to V. Putin and gives a summary of the last 100 years of anti-Russian activity concerning Ukraine from the West. It should be pointed out that Truman’s CIA was the first to bring Ukrainians to the US for training and parachute them back for subversion and assassination. The US has spent more than $10 billion keeping these forces alive and putting them finally in charge in Ukraine. The motives and identity of our traitorous Americans is identified and explained. This speech confirms my research in this subject and tremendous amounts of additional information is available from dependable sources on this subject.

The present publication has been put forward by the LaRouche organization. While I do not view that organization as a viable political vehicle, it is my opinion that this article and the wide acceptance in Russia and China of LaRouche himself should be enough for all of us to show enough courage to take LaRouche off our “Black” lists. I fear the sooner we do so, the less we may have to regret doing so.

I have read nothing I view of greater importance in bringing political and economic understanding to the American People at this time. The work of Ellen Brown, Lada Ray and Jim Willie come to mind as perhaps, equally important at this particular time. Certainly their presentations are more quickly grasped and therefore more politically powerful, in my view. However, long term, ie, the last almost 40 years, the greatest light for sheer volume has originated from the LaRouche people. Highlights in this article are my own. Certainly, this publication below, at this time, is nothing short of heroic and essential reading.

2. The “Putin Method” begins to work…

This is also news shared by John Durham:

The “Putin Method” begins to work…


BAKU, July 01. /ITAR-TASS/.
The Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has called for additional measures aimed at tackling the growing threat of terrorism, linked with the return of militants from conflict zones and INTENSIFIED ACTIVITY OF NEO-NAZIS (my emphasis), says a resolution on combating terrorism that was adopted in the Azerbaijani capital on Tuesday by the participants in the 23rd annual session of the OSCE PA.

BAKU, July 01./ISVESTIA/.
…vote was preceded by heated debate, during which Latvia, U.S. and Canada proposed to classify the hotbeds of terrorism to Russia.

This proposal was put to the vote twice, but both times was rejected by the parliamentary majority. As a result, the Russian delegation resolution was adopted without change.

– 44 parliamentarians voted for the resolution, 21 against and 10 people abstained. Document adopted by the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, – told “Izvestia” on the voting member of the Russian delegation, Ambassador Vasily Likhachev.

3. Did Russia and China Lose Propaganda War with the US? How important is the grass-roots TRUTH movement?

This is an excellent exchange from my recent article: ‘Gave Americans a Blow Job For Nothing?’ Polish FM Sikorski Leaked Tape Scandal. I am posting it verbatim – worth reading!

So how are Russian NGOs doing? How many are in Poland, and have they had any success?

By the way, it looks to me like Russia needs to get rid of the Fifth Column inside Russia even more than in Poland. When reading someone like Sergei Glazyev, the thing that stands out is “Why hasn’t Russia done that already?” Basic things to protect herself from US blackmail haven’t even been started. It should have been obvious by Iraq II that the US was dangerous, and once the Arab Spring campaigns started, Russia should have gone full-speed ahead in getting ready for rough seas.

  • Newly posted addition! Important alert: Russian analysts and presidential advisors are warning very seriously that USA is planning a Ukraine-style takeover of Russia in 2015. Ukraine, they say, is just the US and EU practice drill before Russia. This corroborates absolutely what I’ve been predicting all along: US is after Russia; Ukraine is just a gateway and a convenient proxy. More in Predictions. Also see my interview with Plane Truth and YT videos. I will continue writing about that, so stay tuned!

    NGOs in Russia are much quieter after Ukraine, but still there. They are on the way out, but slowly. Glazyev, and others, are trying to educate Russians about their true nature as this is the only way to get rid of them. Only when people support Putin 100%, will they be able to squeeze NGOs out. More support is showing, but NGOs and Fifth Column are also getting more insidious. It will be a process.

    You don’t really think NGOs go around screaming: ‘we are foreign agents, we are your enemy and you should never trust us!’ They go around telling people that they are defending their interests, that Putin is doing something wrong. Before, Putin was a thief and was in the oligarchs’ pocket. This has died down after it became clear he was neither. Now it’s popular to criticize Putin for not invading Ukraine and for trying to reason with the EU. He’s too soft, he is sold out to Americans – say US financed NGOs and media.
    Anything to unseat Putin and to create turmoil in Russia.

    From certain people’s perspective it appears true. This perspective is of course myopic, dumb and backwards. But they play on people’s fear and anger. That’s what they are teaching them to do in these schools in Poland (reference to my article ‘Gave Americans a Blow Job For Nothing?’ Polish FM Sikorski Leaked Tape Scandal). The big difference is that Poland is serving as a hub for preparing Fifth Column for all of eastern Europe and post-Soviet space. Poland has contracted with US and EU to spread subversive sabotage, which only serves US interests. The process of awakening will be slow.

        • Actually, Lada, what I was referring to is the issue of how few NGOs the Russian government has funded, and their quality. If a government, say, Serbia or Bulgaria, does something that is anti-Russian and 80% of the public there is against it, it is up to Russian interests to make a big deal out of it. It is unrealistic to leave things up to you and me and an appeal to justice. The Lord helps those who help themselves, or something like that. A minor example of what could have been done is to promote all languages and cultures inside the Ukraine. If, for example, a group had been promoting how fascinating the historical mix in the Transcarpathian region was, with tours and books and events in New York City, well, radical Ukrainian nationalism would have been seen as something that wanted to destroy such an interesting culture. This would not have been seen as “evil Russian” activities, but it would have helped their interests. Imagine the impact right now if a large campaign got started about “Save Transcarpathia From the Barbarism of the 1930′s”.

          Both Russia and China are finally getting off their butts and doing something about NGOs now, but this is very late, and they also need their own. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Maidan in Taipei or Hong Kong, though the authorities would clamp down a lot sooner and more harshly than Yanukovich did.

          • This is out of Russian character, you know that. And out of Chinese character, too.
            I understand your frustration. It’s mine as well. This is why, when RT was first starting out, I told them very insistently they had to be proactive. Few remember, but they were on the defensive back then. Just justifying Russia’s actions here and there, trying to appeal to the non-existent reason of all those who were completely overpowered by the US propaganda. I told them, they needed to go on the attack. Thank god they listened. Now RT is the only big enough voice that counters the US BS.

            Russia and China are fighting the propaganda war they had been forced to fight with the ENEMY’s WEAPON. This is not a natural weapon for them. Certainly, they have underestimated the enemy. They want to change the world, not validate the Western dominance by using Western weapon.

            You are assuming they have to use the enemy’s weapon to win, which is unnatural to them. They will use their own weapons and own ways to fight. It’s just you don’t see what weapons they are using because your eye, like most other people’s, is trained to see the Western way only.

            History shows, Russia eventually wins all its battles, usually the ones it had been dragged into contrary to own desires. Of course, they are also finally starting to use Western weapons as well, but if it’s not theirs, they won’t be as good at it.

            The whole world blinked, Paul. Not just Russia. The whole world allowed US usurp power. It will take some time to reverse that.

            And by the way, my prediction: the grass-roots movement is what WILL reverse it. You are underestimating yourself and me. 😉

            Did you see my post ‘Judgment and the Future of Humanity’:https://futuristrendcast.wordpress.com/2014/06/24/judging-others-and-the-future-of-humanity/ In it, I quoted and responded to your prior comment.

            Paul 

        • An example of the issue of propaganda was in a comment to an article by Nikolai Starikov: —-
          Awakening after decades of propaganda Russophobia begins in Russia and the world outside Russia. Here a man tells the story of his transformation. And he’s not alone.

          “Russian diaspora, many countries are able to link economic, scientific and cultural ties with the Russian Mir for the benefit of Russia. This Russian diaspora could, take a high place in the political and economic elite of their countries, could direct their course for a close encounter with Russia. But this is impossible if Russian diaspora are ashamed of their origin and their heritage. And Russia over the past 23 years has done everything possible for that.
          Now Russia is vital to deploy active work with all Russian-speaking citizens in countries near and far abroad. Need to be made in all areas: preservation of the Russian language and culture, research and cultural exchanges, sports, arts, business communication, Support Russian organizations, foundations and movements. This requires the allocation of considerable resources, and above all requires a sufficient number of diplomats and experts, organizers and leaders.”
          —-
          In other words, the PR problems in the Ukraine or Poland are worldwide and probably inside Russia, too. It shouldn’t be shocking what has happened inside the Ukraine. It stems from Russian and Western policies.

          • I agree. Up till recently they didn’t have a movement inside Russia that would help Putin actualize such things. Starikov is the man who is organizing such movement – on the grass-roots level, btw. He is the one to watch.

            Grass-roots movement is the name of the game, Paul.

            And yes, the whole world blinked. Again, because everyone was sold on the Western propaganda postulating that the Western way was the best way, therefore the West must know better. In fact, the Western economic miracle was simply 40 odd years of dumb luck. My Feng Shui Theory of Long Cycles explains that very well. Never got the chance to talk about it because of all these events in Ukraine. We should discuss it in the next interview. 🙂

            • Yes, grass-roots movements are very important. But they need soil that can grow grass. That kind of soil comes from years of thinking about what is needed to have healthy soil, and not abusing the land. So, as an example, Russia should fund lots of scholarships and cultural exchanges. Almost all of the “name” dirtbags in the Ukraine studied abroad. Places like Columbia University. What was a huge failure was bribing the Party of Regions and oligarchs to do things. And, speaking of grass roots, the US has done a better job of that around the world than Russia. Sure, some of that is just brainwashing, but a lot of it is real. Not really talking about NGOs here, more like funders examining what is popular and deciding to support it based on calculations. A friend’s niece recently spent a year in Russia studying. It would have been easier to study elsewhere in Europe, but she was determined.

              In any case, there are cycles, and the last one came about with the collapse of Communism. It left only China with the ability to restrain the US, and China was unable and unwilling to take on such a task, which was, as you said about propaganda, not really in their character. They also didn’t really have the strength till recently, and they had few allies who were angry enough about the American behavior to join hands.

              Lada Ray 

            • Well said, Paul 🙂

              ******

              In conclusion, Lada’s historic perspective, analysis and a few predictions:

              I agree with Paul on a lot of things. I’ll only disagree that China had the ability of restraining USA after the USSR collapse. It didn’t, and it still doesn’t. Not by itself – only in close collaboration with Russia, which they are still afraid to do.

              Russia has a much better capacity to restrain US, if we are talking militarily, and to a degree, politically, but it’s still not the same as USSR. Only USSR could keep USA in check completely. From this perspective, USA was right at targeting USSR for destruction, and USSR was wrong at allowing it to happen. As a result, the balance in the world was broken.

              However, it is very important to understand that this is how the Earthly 3D world works. Something has to be broken in order to build something new. This new, because of people’s resistance, is now being born in pain.

              I’d much prefer that Russia and China worked together more. Hell, I prefer that EU and Russia worked together much more, too. However, presently everyone’s petrified that the world will be destabilized and no one wants to take responsibility for that happening. Fear generates frozen ‘dear caught in the headlights’ syndrome in the EU and China; partially in Russia, too. This weakness shown by so many countries gives the green light to the US aggression.

              Right now, US is on the offensive and it’s a very unpleasant and difficult period for everyone. We are constantly teetering on the brink. The world is transitioning into the new era, but it’s darkest before the dawn. It appears we are backpedaling a lot. This is because the birth of the new is always accompanied by great pain and uncertainty. And of course, the old won’t give up without a fight.

              Prediction: unfortunately, we will have several pretty worrisome and dark years. Progress will be slow, but it will be made. The results will be visible later.

              In conclusion, I want to say that Paul hit the nail on the head. He, as someone looking at the PR/propaganda situation from the outside, sees it much more clearly than those who look at it from the inside. Those in the Russian government, Duma and various organizations, should listen. That said, the US created and financed fifth column is a real issue in Russia, and everywhere else around the globe.

              It is very important to understand very well why the Western ideology has such power. It is because between approximately 1964 and 2003 the West experienced progressively more stability and prosperity, while Russia had relatively less of it. The prosperity and stability were gained through neo-colonialism and economic enslavement of third world nations, fractional reserve banking, petro-dollar, financial monopolization and manipulation. The wealth was siphoned from other countries to settle in the West. I am talking about the culmination of this process in the past 50 odd years, but let’s remember that this process of colonization, financial manipulation and looting of other countries is several centuries old.

              Certainly, the well-developed system of the American propaganda was a big help. And of course, mistakes by the Soviet Union helped the West as well. As I said, the Ray Theory of Long Cycles explains all this very well. I never really shared my theory publicly before, although I’ve been using it for years. I’ll share it with all in due time.

              The situation is changing now, as according to my theory, we are out of the 40 year period favoring the West and are in the 20 year period favoring the North-East, or in other words, favoring Russia and China. We are also in a much longer period, which also favors Russia, generally speaking. However, the danger is that the USA has too many leverages with which it can assert its domination over the world. This is very troubling, and this is why everyone is trying to appease the US. The US has been allowed to accumulate too much power unchecked. This is very, very dangerous and can end in disaster for all. We are still not out of the danger zone, despite Putin’s supreme efforts. Putin has to balance on a very thin edge to keep the world spinning.

              That’s why things have to be done slowly and gradually. From the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis, and the US and EU blatant interference in Ukrainian and Russian affairs, I said that you don’t poke with a stick a wounded and dangerous beast. You first try to calm down the situation and then slowly remold it in your favor.

              I understand the frustration of so many people, but forcing the issue could lead to a global disaster.

              Also, I like the idea of engaging the Russian diaspora. The conversations about that have been going on for a while, but they never materialized. Russians have a lot of great qualities. However, appreciating and honoring their own people unfortunately isn’t one of them. Russians tend to take themselves, and their compatriots, for granted – and that is part of the problem. This is why some people left to the West when the going got tough in the 1990s. Generally, Russia has been the largest exporter of brains and talent throughout the 20th century. And that happened not because of people’s choice, but out of desperation. They felt that their own country didn’t appreciate them. And I am talking some of the smartest and most talented people.

              Russia has so much talent and the Russian land is so generous that oftentimes it isn’t appreciated. They say the Russian soul is very generous and the Russian heart is wide open. These are excellent qualities of which Russians themselves are very proud. But what I said above is an example of how this wonderful quality can backfire.

              In this regard it’s worth studying and partially adopting the Western attitude, which is quite different. So, the words about treating the Russian diaspora with respect and attention are wise words. If Russians can learn anything from the West, it’s these two things: respecting each individual (but without forgetting about the interests of the society as a whole), and paying very close attention to propaganda and the country’s image. Of course, as usual, balance is key.

              I know, we all are dreaming of living in the world without wars and viciously greedy interests that always want to gain an unfair advantage over everyone else. But since we are not in that kind of world yet, we need to remember to protect ourselves against predators by all means necessary.

              USSR won WWII, but lost two hidden wars: the propaganda war and the economic war to the USA. And that was its end. While naive and trusting Russians – from the cynical Western perspective – were busy trying to understand what they did wrong and how come their society suddenly fell apart, Americans didn’t waste any time. Any soul-searching was immediately perceived as weakness – and they pounced. How this usually works is very well described in the excellent book by John Perkins, ‘Confessions of the Economic Hitman.’

              What was really unbelievable, and what Russians started realized only by 1999, was that while Russia trusted US and EU in the 1990s, while they opened their borders and hearts to them, they (primarily US and UK) engaged in the wholesale looting of the country. Meanwhile, US sent just about a million “advisors” to Russia, as well as all post-Soviet countries. They infiltrated absolutely everything on all levels. How they worked is very well portrayed in the American film ‘Spinning Boris’ with Jeff Goldblum, closely based on true events. In it, Bill Clinton personally sends to Yeltsin circa 1996 elections several of his presidential campaign advisors. They work for Yeltsin secretly, because should it be admitted he is using Americans, he would never be elected. Yeltsin, by admission of these same advisors, was practically unelectable at 5% approval rating. The joke was that Stalin was dead, but not as dead as Yeltsin. The frontrunner for the 1996 elections was the Communist party leader Gennady Ziuganov. Clinton’s advisors got Yeltsin elected by scaring voters into believing that there would be a new civil war if communists were elected. The official version was that the country that knew too many wars voted Yeltsin in for the second term out of fear.

              This is the official version. However, now more and more proof is emerging that the election was simply falsified and that in reality these American advisors were sent to do just that. As a confirmation of this: The Urals and Siberia were actually ready to start a fight against Yeltsin, believing the election was stolen.

              Incidentally, two days ago, Gennady Ziuganov celebrated his 70th birthday. He had been the leader of the Communist party since the early 1990s, when he picked it up during the absolute collapse. He is considered a hero by some Russians as he managed to nurture his party back to life after it was on its way to the morgue. Ziuganov is highly respected, even by his opponents. For example, the far right Zhirinovsky, Ziuganov’s eternal opponent, had warm words to say about him.

              Ziuganov has also been the Duma deputy and leader of the Communist faction for over 20 years. The more it becomes clear to Russians what a deceptive game the US has been playing for as long as anyone can remember, and the better they understand Yeltsin’s role, the more people respect Ziuganov. He is suddenly en vogue. It appears he was right back in the 1990s. In his birthday interview two days ago, Ziuganov was asked what happened during and after the rigged 1996 elections. He said that hundreds of thousands from the Urals and Siberia were ready to take up arms and go free Moscow. Everyone knew the election was stolen. But one thing stopped him from saying yes to this plan of action: he didn’t want to start the civil war in Russia. He thought that peace was more important.

              Oh yes, I know the regular readers of this blog are very smart, so this isn’t for you, guys. But in case someone wanders into this blog by accident who doesn’t know me: I am not into promoting any particular party or agenda anywhere in the world. I evaluate people, events, countries and politicians based on their words and consequences of their actions. I judge them by their reason (or lack thereof), logic and intentions. 

              I can’t stop being amazed at the unbelievable difference between Russian and American politicians, ways of communicating and PR direction. Per accounts of the ‘spinning Boris’ American advisors, Yeltsin also resisted ‘negative propaganda’ against Ziuganov, proposed by Americans from the start. He didn’t want to go ‘negative,’ and only agreed when nothing else worked.

              It’s worth remembering how many millions upon millions of dollars, pounds and euros get spent every election in the US, UK, Canada and EU to bash the opponent and to scare voters into voting the way some sleazebag wants, therefore keeping the sheeple submissive and confused.

              The Western system is designed to murder everything that is positive, reasonable and light in the world. It dumbs down the masses and perpetuates fear, greed and violence. Let’s remember, violence can be non-physical, too.

              If you are assassinating your opponent’s character, are you any less of a murderer? If you are assassinating the character of the entire culture, as it is ALWAYS done in the West against Russia, are you not a mass murderer? Assassination of the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s character has been a long-cherished tradition in the West. I have to specify that the Russian culture character assassination is mostly the handiwork of the US and UK, as well as some Eastern European countries.

              But let’s look much closer to home! I can recall an assassination of the character of John Kerry, when he ran against Bush. My readers know what I think about Kerry. But the truth is the truth. Back then, when his character was being assassinated, costing him the election, I actually felt sorry for him. Kerry served in Vietnam and his people wanted to use that as proof he was a hero and a responsible leader. That was contrasted with Bush hiding out at some reserve regiment, where he didn’t even show up for duty. That was the truth and the American voters started doubting Bush. Then the Bush side went on the attack. Within the scope of one or two weeks(!) they put together a book by fake “swift boat Vietnam vets” that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. The “book” proved that Kerry wasn’t the hero and didn’t deserve the accolades, that in fact he was a coward, his stories of his heroic acts were a lie and he hid behind his comrades backs. Whether the stories were true or not, “propaganda” was written all over the so-called book. I can tell you as a writer: it’s not possible to conceive and write the whole book, PLUS get it published, promoted and delivered to stores in 1-2 weeks. It can only be done by a large and dedicated team of highly paid subversive agents with a very aggressive agenda. Kerry was crushed and never recovered from the blow as his character was literally assassinated.

              I also can recall the former Italian PM Berlusconi character assassination and intimidation campaign, resulting in his ousting and trial. The Italian and EU fifth column MSM did a great job on Italians. Berlusconi was always a womanizer, but it only became a problem – and all dogs were sicked on him – when he became too close to Russia.

              And that’s how EVERYTHING’s done in the Western world, including US, UK and EU!

              Check out Books by Lada Ray.  Read excerpts here.

              Incidentally, here is an interesting excerpt from THE EARTH SHIFTER where I describe the looting of Russia by the oligarchs in the ’90s (The oligarchs were fronts for Western interests.): Excerpt 2: Russian Oligarch.


              The Earth Shifter
              deals with remote viewing and NWO conspiracy against Russia. The Western-backed conspiracy to unseat the Russian president is the subject of my best-selling thriller Gold Train (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure).

Syria Fiasco and Syria Embassy Closure: Another Attempt to Destabilize the World

US has announced that it closes down the Syrian embassy in the US and its 2 consulates, mandating personnel to clear out within 24 hours. The usual diplomatic meaning of such a move is the declaration of war.

But war with whom?

Lada’s analysis:

The #Syria embassy closure is orchestrated deliberately while #Russia is busy with the Ukraine and #Crimea crisis. US is trying to sneak in yet another invasion while Russia is looking the other way. I have repeatedly explained and predicted on this blog that the United States and their allies had sneaked in the Ukraine regime change while Russia was busy with the #SochiOlympics. Now they are attempting to run the same script for #Syria. Read the rest of this entry
