Ukraine has ‘celebrated’ its 3rd anniversary of the Kiev Maidan. Many were predicting and expecting Maidan 3.0 and the ousting of Poroshenko. And then Maidan 3.0 went puff.
Meanwhile, a week ago Ukraine radicals from ukro-nazi battalions and various fascist organizations blockaded the rail and auto roads between Donetsk-Lugansk People’s Republics and Ukraine. Their idea – very logical from the standpoint of the Maidan – is this: why does Ukraine continue buying coal from ‘separatists’ with whom Ukraine government says it is at war?
Of course, the violent ukro-nazis, most of whom are high school drop-outs and jailbirds, have no idea about logistics, economy and systemic thinking. Trouble is, the infrastructure of Ukraine was built during Soviet times as one whole system, where various parts support each other. If the high quality and plentiful coal stops arriving from Donbass, then dozens of metallurgical, machine-building and chemical plants elsewhere will shut down.
What will also shut down are the thermal energy plants running on coal, and there are lots of those in Ukraine due to the cheap and high quality coal supplied by Donbass. What will happen when power stations shut down in the middle of winter? What will happen to Ukrainian citizens, who are already hardly surviving, each winter being harder and harder?
Last year Ukraine tried to buy coal from S. Africa. With great pomp a shipload of coal was unloaded in Odessa, just to be found later that this particular – much more expensive – coal doesn’t burn well in power plants designed specifically for Donbass coal.
As of today, several important metallurgical and chemical plants had to shut down in E. Ukraine. Dozens of other plants are about to close down due to the lack of coal.
This means tens of thousands are about to lose their jobs.
Meanwhile, an emergency electric power economy regime has been announced in the country. Authorities warn that most towns and cities are down to 1 week or less in supplies of coal. Domino effect electricity shut-offs in Kiev and other major cities are being announced.
Multiply this by the following facts:
Ukraine’s other important sources of electricity, its aging nuclear power stations, are in bad condition, not being maintained properly. They are also being overloaded and worked beyond capacity to pick up the slack from the dying coal power plants. We all know what may happen in such cases: Chernobyl.
The now deceased head of Europe’s largest Zaporozhie Nuclear Power Plant was a whistleblower, who tried to deliver the truth about the sorry state of Ukraine’s nuclear energy. He also blew the whistle on the fact that Ukraine has been trying to replace compatible Russian parts and nuclear fuel, for which the Ukrainian nuclear plants were built, with the incompatible American parts and fuel. He warned of the potential catastrophe, which would make Chernobyl look like a child’s toy. Last year he suddenly died, supposedly due to health reasons…
The blockade of Donbass rail and auto roads is conducted by only a few dozen militants from the right sector and ukro-nazi battalions. But despite such measly numbers, there appears to be no force in the country, or beyond, that can control them or make them go away. The law in Ukraine died on the day the Kiev Maidan began.
Ukraine president Poroshenko has been ‘pleading’ with ukro-nazis to stop the blockade. Drunk on power and self-importance, they refused.
Here’s the problem. Since 2014 Poroshenko and Kiev junta have adamantly maintained that in Donbass they are fighting ‘against the entire might of the Russian Army.’ In reality, of course, Poroshenko and Kiev junta have been attacking the people of Donbass who have rejected the Russophobic ukro-nazi ideology, and who simply wanted to be left alone to live on their land, honoring their true history and speaking Russian language.
Suddenly, the same Kiev junta and same Poroshenko who keep demanding money from the EU and US, based on their assertion that Ukraine continues successfully deflecting the ‘brutal aggression of the entire Russian Army’ in Donbass, are unable to do anything with a few dozen ukro-nazi bullies, who are about to send what’s left of Ukraine into a stone age? Sound plausible?
Moreover, in the past day or two Poroshenko’s junta has violently dispersed in Kiev the beginnings of Maidan 3.0. They are capable of dispersing thousands in Kiev, yet the whole Ukrainian police, special forces and army, which they don’t mind using against civilians in Donbass, cannot reign in on a few dozen ukro-nazi railroad blockaders?
Note this interesting detail! While all this has been happening in Ukraine, Poroshenko tried just in case to escape to the USA, but he was told that he wasn’t invited yet. Still, as of today, Poroshenko is missing from Kiev and from the country – location unknown. Same goes for Kolomoysky, Avakov and other junta bosses. Faced with the possibility of Maidan 3.0 they prefer to spend time in the security of some obscure ‘offshore haven.’
Make no mistake, they’ll be back as soon as the storm wears out. And why would the storm wear out? Why the new Maidan isn’t possible? Why was it successful in 2014 to install Poroshenko and the junta, yet, why is it not working against Poroshenko?
Because the 2014 Maidan was wholeheartedly supported and financed by the West. The 2017 3.0 anti-Poroshenko Maidan is not supported by the West.
All of the world’s color revolutions, the majority of mayhem, and practically all ugly international wars have been perpetrated by the West. The West doesn’t invest in one = it doesn’t happen. Such is the simple math of the bitter truth.
Everyone knows Poroshenko is missing from the country, yet – NOTICE THIS IMPORTANT DETAIL! – no one’s trying to unseat him. During the 2014 Maidan the West claimed that ‘Yanukovich left Kiev,’ therefore he forfeit his presidency, and consequently, US and EU were right to support the temporary Kiev junta government appointed personally by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland.
So, should we assume there is no force in the country capable of dealing with a few dozen ‘idealistic’ ukro-nazis, blockading and blowing up railroads? It’s a lot more logical that they have been simply paid off. And make no mistake: no Euro-Maidan or revolution happens in Ukraine without protesters being handsomely paid.
Who pays them off to blockade Donbass coal:
1. Poroshenko himself – to topple rival oligarchs, such as in this case Renat Akhmetov, once ‘the richest man in Ukraine’ according to Forbes, and now virtually bankrupt. It is Akhmetov’s plants located in Eastern Ukraine that are being hit by shut-downs.
2. Kolomoysky, and hiding behind his back until the right moment, Yulia Timoshenko.
3. Foreign parties – we know who they are – who want to continue destroying Ukraine. This is a well-known strategy: they know that they will eventually have to give up Ukraine, therefore, they want to destroy it as much as possible so that Russia would have to spend as many resources as possible to eventually rebuild it.
Incidentally, the same strange inability to reign in on terrorists and criminals is observed all over Ukraine: the most famous example is the continuing blockade of Crimea by the fascist Crimean Tartar Mejlis in Kherson Oblast. The illegal Crimean Tartar battalion Asker and associated ukro-nazis have been raping, robbing, taking away land/businesses and killing local citizens, while Kiev authorities give them cover. This has been proven recently when a Ukraine army major tried to confiscate illegal arms from Isliamov’s Asker battalion in Kherson oblast. Isliamov is a wanted terrorist in Russia, who organized the blowing up of electric power lines to Crimea, leaving 2.5 million people without power in the winter. The Ukrainian major who tried to do his job was fired from his post; all illegal arms were returned to Isliamov’s Crimean Tartar battalion.
Last year a few dozen ukro-nazis blockaded roads in western Ukraine, extensively used for shipping between Russia and EU. Neither Ukraine nor EU would reign into them either, despite the fact that EU companies were suffering losses. The problem was solved only via redirecting all shipping traffic away from Ukraine. In the process, Ukraine suffered millions of dollars in annual loss of transit revenue.
The logic of these ukro-nazis and ‘Ukraine patriots’ is brilliant: who cares that my country is going down the drain, as long as I get handsomely paid for inflicting damage on others and as long as I harm Russia, destroy or sabotage as much as I can.
It is these destructive elements that the West bred, financed and supported in Ukraine for the past 25+ years, just so that they would help undermine Russia.
And another observation: much of the population of Ukraine has been crushed and scared to death after the Kiev Maidan armed thugs gained control of the country in the past 3 years. But the majority have been simply brainwashed. They turned out to be surprisingly easy to brainwash. In front of their very eyes their country is being raped and slowly killed by hordes of invaders: 1. ukro-nazis from Western Ukraine; 2. oligarchs, most of whom aren’t ethnically Ukrainians or Russians; 3. by the West. Meanwhile, the population at large isn’t protesting, watching how their country’s life is being slowly snuffed out by the forces of darkness.
Not all are overtly violent who are in agreement with Maidan and the junta. Some simply live in their own la la land. Take for example Ukrainian singer Ruslana, whose claim to fame is that she once won Eurovision contest – I believe, thanks to Russia giving her the top score of 12 points. Ruslana is now a rabidly Russophobic Ukraine ‘patriot.’ She is sort of ‘Madonna’ of Ukraine. Recently this semi-crazy diva went on TV, promoting alternative energy. It went like this: “We have to free ourselves from dependence on Russian (or Donbass) energy or gas. For example, I use my own windmill factory to generate all the power I need. It’s so easy – just build them on your property and you have free energy!”
All fine and good, but the cost of windmills on ‘Ruslana’s property’ turned out to be upward of $400,000. Average Ukrainian’s salary is $125 a month.
Mass protests took place all over South and East of Ukraine in 2014-2016. These protests were brutally and bloodily suppressed. So far, only the people of Crimea and parts of Donbass found enough courage and stamina to effectively counter the aggression and occupation by west-Ukraine ukro-nazis and foreign forces.
Some of Lada Ray 2014 predictions on Ukraine were:
- Only Russia – the sister nation – can control the dark element in Ukraine; and only Russia can rebuild Ukraine and help it prosper again.
- The West will drop Ukraine like a squeezed-out lemon when it realizes it cannot control the monster they created.
- Ukraine will turn back to Russia and away from the West by the end of 2018.
- But before that happens, Ukraine economy will be completely destroyed.
- People of Ukraine need to learn their lesson. They need to find inner courage and common sense to save themselves. At the very minimum they need to find enough energy to help Russia save them. So far they haven’t.
- I have voiced the next two predictions before, but I want to re-formulate them even more clearly for the future: Ukraine’s salvation from the abyss in which it’s falling is directly tied with two factors: the shift within, and the weakening of the USA and EU – the two entities that have been behind those who are sucking it dry.
- Simple as that: in the next decades US and EU will have to deal full-force with the bad karma they generated in abundance by destroying Ukraine and many other countries. US and EU should prepare to reap what they’ve sown.

New EARTH SHIFT REPORT on NOVOROSSIA, DPR/LPR & UKRAINE,
plus LADA RAY’S NEW & UPDATED UKRAINE – NOVOROSSIA PREDICTIONS
Coming in the end of February 2017!
#savedonbasspeople from #ukronazi #kievjunta #ukrarmy
Yesterday, Ukraine’s new authorities and its new president #Poroshenko conducted a #phosphorus bombing of the innocent civilians in eastern Ukraine. White phosphorus bombs, banned by the UN, have been used previously by #Israel in #Gaza and #USA in #Iraq and #Afghanistan: see Wikipedia. No one else in the world has used this diabolical type of weapon, except USA and Israel!
Therefore, it is clear where the weapons, and the OK to use them, came from. The bombing took place on the heels of a visit to Kiev of the infamous #neocon Victoria #Nuland from the US State Dept, who just a few months ago openly bragged how USA spent $5bln+ to “subvert Ukraine.”
The internet is full of horrific images of burned down houses and injured children in eastern Ukraine! Here is one video report in Russian about how the village called Semyonovka, near Slavyansk, Donetsk region, was bombed. The phosphorus bombing lasted over an hour. The report says that Russia presented a draft resolution to investigate Ukraine’s use of illegal weapons against its population to the UN Security Council. See the footage of bombing.
Today: Two Ukrainian armored vehicles breached the Russian border, and when Russian border guards tried to arrest them for trespassing, one of the APCs pointed its gun at the Russian guards, after which they retreated into the Ukrainian territory. See video report below.
Analysis and Warning! I feel that I need to issue this warning – please share!
Don’t for a moment think that the breach of the Russian border by Ukraine APCs was a joke, or a mistake! This is very serious and everyone should be paying attention! This is a direct order to #Kiev/ #Poroshenko/ #Yatsenyuk to provoke Russia and make her lose her cool. They want Russia to react to the phosphorus bombing and the border breach by sending Russian troops to Ukraine. Then US and EU can re-start the arms race, the new #ColdWar and #NATO expansion to the Russian borders. Worse case scenario: they may start a new BIG war on the European continent, which under worst circumstances can turn into World War III.
The US is desperate to reverse its collapse and to do that, they need to destabilize the rest of the world. Russia is what is standing in the way of the #NWO plans. Only by implementing their long-cherished NWO plans can the US escape the collapse of the dollar and its usury system.
They need to create such an intolerable situation around Russian borders that Russia would have no choice but to react. Then Russia and #Putin would be vilified AGAIN, and simple Europeans/ Americans will be made believe that Russia is the aggressor, regardless of the fact that all of Russia’s actions have been super-peaceful, while all US/UK/EU/Ukraine actions have been aggressive.
I talked about this previously in: Ukraine Part 6. Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014. You will notice that the present scenario in Ukraine, which I predicted since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis, closely resembles the 2008 Georgia/South Ossetia scenario. Also see Predictions page for the future I foresee.
My predictions notwithstanding, we are teetering on the brink of possible WWIII. While Russia is doing everything to prevent the worst case scenario, USA and Kiev are doing everything to escalate it! This is a very dangerous situation and I expect them intensifying provocations against Russia, unless American and European people say no! Considering that we are risking a new Cold War, or possible WWIII, I think all honest and peaceful people should be extremely concerned.
Watch video report:
#SaveDonbassPeople #SaveDonbassSkyFromNazi #NoKievNazi
This just in: Video of Russian border patrol watching the segment of the border that was breached. Ukrainian APC that stalled and was left by Ukrainians on Russian territory at 4:10. It appears Ukraine military tried to get their vehicle back later, but Russian border patrol stopped them. Russians found grenades, mines and other non-friendly stuff inside the APC vehicle that stalled just after crossing the Russian border, evidently refusing to follow orders of the illegal Kiev authorities. Seems the Ukrainian armored vehicle is smarter than Ukrainian military. Honestly, this would have been comical, if it wasn’t so sad, and if these dumb marionettes weren’t playing with dangerous fire that’s way out of their league.
Also video report: Russia experiences influx of Ukrainian refugees. Rostov oblast alone reports 70,000+ refugees from Ukraine.
The newly elected president of Ukraine Petro #Poroshenko promised to stop military operation in the east of Ukraine (Donbass and Lugansk) and to create humanitarian corridors so people could leave the areas being bombed by his troops. In reality, the opposite is happening.
The city in ruins: below is eyewitness video report about last night’s bombing of #Slavyansk, the long-suffering city in #Donetsk Republic that takes the brunt of the Kiev junta attacks. With English subs, which are not very good, but you can get the idea.
I’ve added my own translation to help in understanding what they are talking about. This is a quick translation. Apologies if it’s not polished enough. My time is limited, but I felt this was too important and needed to be posted.
“As a result of the last night’s shelling of the residential areas near city center, one woman was killed, another heavily injured. The shelling was highly concentrated, and it targeted the purely residential area.”
A woman says: “Poroshenko has blood on his hands. These are the worst rulers we have ever had. Killing young people, children. He thinks he will be forgiven? He is up to his neck in blood. Damn him. We should go to Kiev and do the same to him. With all his ill-gotten wealth. Damn oligarch. Tell him that. Idiot. Mainly retirees live here. No gas, no electricity. Americans want our land, that’s why they make war. That’s all.”
Man: “All doors have been blown off. Nothing is left in most apartments. All apartments are standing open. Who is going to guard our possessions?’
Militia man to cameraman: “Don’t show me, I am not that interesting. Show how they are shooting at civilians.”
“Stray dogs follow us everywhere we go because they are afraid of bombings too. They know they are safer with us.”
Woman: “They (Kiev junta – LR) have no conscience if they shoot civilians, and destroy the peaceful city. We lived peacefully; the old wanted to die in peace, the young wanted to grow in peace. Where is that Europe now? Let them see what’s really going on here. How they bomb us from planes. Ukraine hides this reality from the world. Ukraine doesn’t want this to be seen… Boys, quickly, hide behind the house.”
Man: “There are only two of us left on this street, because we have nowhere to go.” Woman: “Terrible.” Man:” We’ll survive somehow.”
A simple woman about junta, oligarchs, Americans, and who and why started the civil war in Ukraine: “We are tired of this senseless war, one people – against each other. They (Kiev junta, oligarchs – LR) want riches. They can’t take any riches to another world. The only difference when you die is that some will have richer coffins than others. Those idiots wanted power and riches and that’s why they have started this war. Americans, I am sure, are happy. Americans are dreaming about a war in Europe. They think they are far away and safe, meanwhile, they’ll do good business selling arms to the warring factions. Europe to them is disposable.”
Some of these people spoke Russian and some Ukrainian, yet they all said the same thing.
