EXPLOSIVE! Skripal aftermath: Nazi UK targets Russians trying to return to Russia? Ex-oligarchs flee London after threats!
Let’s get this straight from the start: those ex-Russian oligarchs who fled to London from Russia, having stolen the people’s money in the ’90s or 2000s don’t have my sympathy. Some of them were outright criminals, but many simply treaded along an illusive gray line between legal and illegal dealings. Having fled to hospitable to all international criminals London from Russian justice or investigation, they all received UK asylum.
At one point, UK was happy to give asylum to anyone who was ready to pay up and deposit their millions — or billions — in the UK banks. And boy those people did! Not Geneva, but London in the ’90s became the world’s offshore capital!
On top of the ill-gotten riches, the major bonus for the UK was to do anything to spite Russia. Presently, Russia has a list of over 40 Russians (last I heard, could be more by now), who are known criminals and are requested to be extradited. Of course, UK ignores all these requests.
At this time, the UK has gotten itself even deeper into dark waters, and even more in bed with Deep State. The new game, having gotten all those lucrative accounts of Russian ex-oligarchs, is to freeze their assets and then threaten them.
Incidentally, Putin and Russian government warned Russians living in the UK this would happen. For that purpose Putin began a broad amnesty program for such ex-oligarchs and business people. Some have already taken advantage of this amnesty program and returned to Russia, bringing back their assets.
Can London allow that to happen? Of course not!
Those who are planning to return with their money have to be very careful. Remember I told you the story of Boris Berezovsky, who wrote a secret letter to Putin, asking for pardon and permission to return back to Russia. For that he was quickly eliminated by MI6.
The recent poisoning of Sergey Skripal and his daughter, upon reflection, could potentially also be in the same category. It is just a supposition, but there is a possibility that Skripal was also looking for a way to return home, and it is logical that his daughter was visiting him for that reason, as his liaison. If we think about it this way, then a lot of inconsistencies of this case fall into place. Such as, why the current location of Skripal and his daughter are being kept secret and Russian representatives are not allowed to see Yulia, who is a Russian citizen; or why the whole case has been made classified; or why the UK has provided no proof, while immediately jumping to accusations against Russia, etc.

- URGENT! Qui Bono? Skripal Spy Scandal and UK’s Ultimatum to Russia (Lada Ray Analysis + Newest Intel!)
The rumor among people in the know about the most recent mysterious killing of Russian ex-oligarch in London Glushkov, a close partner of Boris Berezovsky, is also in this category. Glushkov was killed in his London home just days after the Skripal poisoning. He always questioned the UK’s suicide verdict of Berezovsky’s case and reportedly recently was actively seeking a way to return to Russia.
The video below tells a chilling story of how Russian ex-oligarchs and business people are being threatened by the UK media and government, and how some of them have to flee. You won’t ever hear from most of them because they fled quietly and transferred their assets in secret. It has been known for a while that the UK is threatening to freeze Russian ex-oligarchs’ and business people’s assets in the UK.

Video: Playing the “Literally Hitler” Card: Boris Johnson Compares Russia to the Third Reich:
THE EXPLOSIVE TRUTH! Watch this video to see the British football team during 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany giving the Nazi salute before the game (players in white uniforms)!
Rhetorical question: based on that, should we assume the Brits even then were a loyal part of the Third Reich, and just pretended otherwise?
Meanwhile, scores are immigrating, returning and even fleeing TO Russia. Actually, Russia can’t absorb the millions who want asylum and/or citizenship. Russia is consistently No. 2 after the US in immigration. That, despite Russian population being less than one half of the USA’s.
Another rhetorical question: which country resembles more the Third Reich and Nazi regime: UK or Russia?
At the same time, the UK SCHOOLS TEACH CHILDREN THAT PUTIN IS a new HITLER AND RUSSIA IS A FASCIST STATE! Congrats, UK on growing a generation of zombified ignoramuses! The future of the UK is truly dark with school programs like this!
More about Skripal case:
Russian FM Lavrov came out and said it straight: the Skripal poisoning is a UK-staged attack against Russian citizens! As Russian authorities have been saying all along, to this day UK shared no details, nor provided any documents or proof to Russia regarding Skripal poisoning, despite multiple requests by Russia. UK’s actions are a violation of the international law.
MY INTEL: The UK envoys have been actively shuttling all over the globe, trying to convince NATO and Western allies to support the British version of the Skripal poisoning case. The fact that UK has been trying to secretly ‘rally the troops’ and get anti-Russian alliance going was leaked to Russia by Turkey. Turkey, as a NATO member has also been approached with an offer of NATO/G7/Western alliance against Russia, but refused. Japan also was approached and instead of saying yes, went to Russia for details.
But EU is fully on board: EU recalls Russia envoy & backs UK belief Moscow

Qui Bono from the Downing of Russian Hero Pilot in Syria? Turkish and Russian Military Intelligence Work Together…
The body of the squadron leader who heroically perished near Idlib in Syria, was returned to Russia. The operation was conducted by Russian and Turkish military intelligence officers. Roman Filipov will be buried in his native city of Voronezh on February 8. He was awarded posthumously the title of Hero of Russia. The decree was signed by the President.
How Major Roman Filipov died – terrorists who attacked him caught it on camera. Not seeing a way out and heavily wounded, he pulled the grenade pin, taking with him, per reports, two of his attackers. His last words heard in Russian in the video below have become legendary and they can be translated as #thisisfortheguys :
The immediate Russian retaliation strikes followed, per reports killing at least 50 militants.
I want to draw your attention to the fact that this specific provocation was timed to take place as the major Syria reconciliation forum (began Jan 29) drew to a close in Sochi. Russia hosted hundreds of opposition and militant groups and political factions leaders, as well as the Syrian government delegation, as well as intermediaries and politicians from UN, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan and more. The Sochi meeting devised an initial roadmap towards political dialog in Syria. The Sochi Syria forum was opened by Sergey Lavrov, who read Putin’s address.
Another reason for this provocation is to try to break up the budding alliance in the Middle East and Syria between Russia, Iran and Turkey.
It’s easy to see who benefits and who doesn’t.

I just thought it was hilarious how poor UK’s Foreign Sec Boris Johnson kept squirming, trying to find his way out of his previous ugly comments, when he put his foot in his mouth on more than one occasion. Just stop embarrassing yourself, Boris!
Lavrov – Johnson joint press conference excerpts:
Johnson: Russia meddled in UK referendum, but was unsuccessful, admit it Sergey!
Lavrov: Of course, Russia was not successful. Nothing happens when no one meddles. One won’t succeed if one doesn’t meddle (applause and laughter from the audience).
Lavrov: If Boris doesn’t contradict everything I say, his reputation in the UK will be ruined.
Johnson recently infamously compared Russia to Sparta — per him, undemocratic, closed, militant and totalitarian; the West, UK and US, in Johnson’s version of reality, are like Athens, democratic, open, peaceful and wonderful. When a journalist asked whether he stands by that statement, look at all the desperate squirming that happens. ‘No, I didn’t mean it, I referred to the USSR, not modern Russia, when I said that.’
Direct lie. Oh yes, you did, Boris, and you really did call black white and vice versa.
I also recall how last year Johnson was accusing Russia of causing and supporting war in Syria (!), while, according to him, UK did everything to stop that war (!) by proudly supporting the infamous White Helmets (those same White Helmets that were routinely photographed with ISIS fighters next to beheaded prisoners).
Lavrov: it wasn’t the USSR that glorified Sparta, it’s in fact the US who does.
Don’t believe your deceiving eyes and ears!
The most embarrassing moment of all: Johnson declares he is a ‘committed Russophile’ because… he is called ‘Boris.’
Actions speak louder than words, Boris!
But then again, just like in the US with Trump and his straitjacket, Dark State never sleeps and Johnson would indeed be crucified at home should he even attempt to be civil to Russia and Russians. That’s just sad…

Video: US media complains they had to get their images of the first Trump – Lavrov meeting from the Russian sources.
If the US media had half a brain, I’d say, ‘Hint dears, you have no one else to blame but yourselves.’ But they won’t get it, so no point in wasting my breath.
US media that attacked #Trump left and right has only itself to blame for not being allowed into #Lavrov – Trump closed-door meeting. Did they really think it would be forgotten?
There is another thing I’ve noticed. When Tillerson came to Moscow to talk to Lavrov a couple of weeks back, the US ‘journalists’ were tripping over themselves and yelling out stupid questions into Lavrov’s ear, not letting two foreign chiefs talk. This prompted such consummate professional as Lavrov to snap and tell them to ‘mind their manners.’ Who taught you your manners, asked Lavrov, to Tillerson’s embarrassed silence.
The same circus continued when Lavrov came to DC. During a joint press appearance, US ‘journalists’ yelled out more dumb questions, while Tillerson was still speaking, thus breaking protocol.
US media = Disruptive mob? Paid provocateurs? Malicious juveniles? I’m afraid, all of the above. They’ve been trained to be this way by the Western neo-liberal globalist establisment.
In other words, the behavior and attitude of the US MSM on all occasions has been distasteful, to say the least… I can think of many more adjectives, but just like Lavrov, being my usual diplomatic self, I’ll refrain from using them. Feel free to add your own – whichever apply.
Is it any wonder these clowns weren’t allowed into Trump-Lavrov meeting?

Libya 2.0? West demands Syria no-fly zone. Retaliation? Russian Kalibr Missiles strike US Intel Center
West demands Syria no-fly zone, but only for Russians & Syrians
Yes, we have heard and seen this before. Remember what that fake no-fly zone did to Libya? Remember Qaddafi?
They tried to unseat Syria’s Bashar Al Assad in all ways possible: from accusations of chemical weapons, threats to bomb, arming ISIL and other terrorist groups, to insistence that ‘Assad must go.’ Nothing worked. Now they want once again to try to pull the same number they once did in Libya. Is anyone dumb enough to fall for it yet again?
A typical MO of a dying empire: they are so decadent, so stuck in the their imaginary ‘America is exceptional’ little world that they are unable to assess the reality on the ground. They don’t understand that the ship has sailed.
Listen to what Germany’s PM Frank-Walter Steinmeier and US Secretary of State John Kerry say at the UN: ‘We need no-fly zone.’ Yes, echoes a US general, we agree to a no-fly zone: Russian and Syrian airforces must be grounded, but only them; our jets must continue flying.
Incidentally, listen carefully to how Kerry phrases his statement. He insists on temporarily grounding of all aircraft over Syria. Of course, we all know what happened in Libya after ‘all’ aircraft was supposedly grounded: US and allies came in and began bombing Qaddafi’s forces, followed by the ISIL takeover of the country with subsequent horrid death by Qaddafi himself.
Therefore, certainly no one will fall for this again. However, in the run up to my new ESR11: THE IMPORTANCE OF 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTIONS (to be released tomorrow 9/24), I want to emphasize one point! Among other crucial things, in ESR11 I discuss the Syria developments and US/West bombing of the Syrian army. In this regard I provide my take on the shifting situation within the US elites. In the FREE Part 1 of the report you’ll see me talk about a rift within US elites, as well as attempts by Kerry to play his own game. Check it out!
BREAKING NEWS! Retaliation for Syrian army’s bombing? Did Russia strike joint US/Israel/West/Turkey Intelligence Center in Aleppo?
Text in Russian:
Согласно сообщению информационного агентства Fars News, “российские военные корабли выпустили три ракеты “Калибр” по иностранному офицерскому координационному оперативному центру в районе Дар Эзза (Dar Ezza), убив 30 израильских и западных офицеров”. Военные США вместе с союзниками создали полевой “Оперативный центр” (Field Operations Room) в районе Алеппо, укомплектованный личным составом разведывательных служб. В нем действовали сотрудники разведок США, Британии, Израиля, Турции, Саудовской Аравии и Катара. Профессор экономики Оттавского университета, основатель и директор Центра изучения глобализации (Канада) Мишель Хосудовский пояснил, что Российская сторона нанесла удар по разведывательному объекту США непосредственно после воздушных ударов ВВС США по вооруженным силам Сирии в районе Дейр-эз-Зор в поддержку террористов ИГИЛ. Оперативный центр находился в западной части провинции Алеппо в районе горы Саман, где имеется много древних пещер. Регион расположен в глубине горной цепи. Центр в регионе Алеппо использовался для координирования действий на земле с разведывательными действиями беспилотников и для нанесения ударов с воздуха. Согласно сообщению агентства Fars, личный состав разведывательных служб участвовал также в планировании и осуществлении нападения ВВС США на сирийских вооруженных сил (Syrian SAA forces), которое было проведено непосредственно после заключения женевского соглашения о перемирии.
My English summary translation:
According to Fars News agency, Russian military ships launched three Kalibr cruise missiles; the strike hit the Dar Ezza joint intelligence coordination center for the US coalition, killing 30 Israeli and Western officers. The center, aka, Field Operations Room near Aleppo is staffed with officers from US, Turkey, UK, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar. Canadian researcher Michel Chossudovsky says that the center was hit after US coalition forces bombed the Syrian army. The intelligence center in question provided intelligence and played a leading role in making the bombing happen.
Incidentally, in tomorrow’s ESR11, I will explain why the US attack on Syrian army was no accident and why it happened right before Russian Elections of September 18!

RELEASE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2016!
Go to all EARTH SHIFT REPORTS
P.S. Russian FM Lavrov is now speaking at the UN. This is his live speech:
Support Lada’s FREE articles and reports on FuturisTrendcast: DONATE HERE!
I have expected an interesting and unexpected move by Putin and Russia during this UN General Assembly – and here it is!
Russian jets strike ISIL positions in Syria – see video links below.
This bold move is happening while UNGA is still in session and right after Putin’s meeting with Obama, and Lavrov’s with Kerry, as well as many other meetings on the sidelines of the UN. This is happening as Russian FM Sergey Lavrov presides over the UN Security Council meeting: Video; and as Russia assumes the rotating chairmanship of the Security Council.
The Soviet of the Federation Chamber of the Russian Duma voted unanimously for the strikes, authorizing the Russian President Vladimir Putin to use Russian troops abroad. This happened at 8 am Moscow time on September 30, 2015, following the official request by Syrian President Bashar Assad and the Syrian government.
I will give you several of my initial observations related to this huge news.
1. The build-up of certain Russian military advisors and hardware has been occurring in Syria for some time. One of the latest was the news of the flagship of the Black Sea Crimean Fleet Moskva leaving to Syria to participate in the Mediterranean drills. As you may know, ‘drills’ is the new-speak for: ‘we want to send our troops but don’t want to do it openly.’ As we know, the US has been regularly conducting such fake drills in Central Europe, the Baltics and Ukraine.
As it appears, Russia has played the US. They didn’t see it coming. Well, I am a very well bred lady, so I wouldn’t know, but some may call it a humiliating middle finger in the direction of you know who. Diplomatically, when such event happens during, or right after, a visit of the leader of Russia to the US and his talks with the US leader, it is a slap in the face.
I do understand how Russia feels after what US has done in Ukraine. And let’s recall — the mess of euro-maidan, the ousting of Yanukovich, the ukro-nazi regime takeover — all that happened during the Sochi Olympics, when Russia was looking the other way and in order to spoil Russia’s moment.
Besides, retaliation seems the only thing that gets through to the US. Sure, Syria to the US is nowhere near what Ukraine means to Russia, but it’s a start.
2. Russia has timed these strikes to the 70th UNGA session. First, it definitely means that there was enough agreement and support for the Russian intervention from various countries at the UN.
Second, and very importantly, it was timed so that when accusations from the US come up (as they have already), Russian highest officials would be at the UN to address them publicly head on. This is why in part, Sergey Lavrov is presiding today over the UN Security Council. His presence alone will help stop any lies in their tracks.
And third, I feel that Russia is reminding everyone who and why was at the source of the UN. It was Russia/USSR that primarily defeated fascism in WWII at the expense of 27 million lives.
3. It has to be noted that US, Israel and France have been bombing Syria for a while, portraying it as strikes against ISIL, while accusations abound that they hit empty targets, or worse, civilian population and government positions. Saudis and Egypt are bombing Yemen without any consent of the UN.
The new ‘fashion’ of freely bombing other countries has been introduced by the US and EU during their invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, disregarding any international laws or UN objections.
4. Of course, US and its EU/NATO allies have been invading and bombing countries regularly.
Russia for many, many years has NOT done any military operations outside its borders, except the four-day war with Georgia, which was a response to Georgia’s aggression against S. Ossetia, resulting in the deaths of eight Russian UN-mandated peacekeepers, thus forcing Russia to respond.
This, therefore, is the first (if you don’t count the former Soviet Republic of Georgia’s brief peace-keeping operation in August 2008) case of Russian interference in a foreign conflict.
It is important to remember that while US, UK, France, Turkey and Israel have never been invited to Syria, Russia is acting upon a direct invitation and plea for help of the Syrian government. The staggering difference should be understood fully.
Russia is the ONLY legitimate foreign presence in Syria!
5. Some have been worried that Syria may become a new Afghanistan for Russia. As we know, Afghanistan ended in 1989 in the Soviet troops withdrawal, followed by the collapse of the USSR. When Brezhnev first went into Afghanistan in 1980 it was also done after an official invitation and multiple pleas for help by the Afghan government. US was secretly training Taliban and Al Qaeda to fight the Russian-leaning Afghan government, in order to lure the USSR into Afghanistan. These fears of the repeat of the past problems are understandable, but unfounded.
Putin isn’t Gorbachev, who made a lot of mistakes; present day Russia isn’t the old USSR. I can predict with absolute confidence that nothing similar to the Soviet Afghanistan business will take place here. This story is very different.
6. I think this is the right move at the right time. While Russia is working on scaling down the violence in Ukraine, brokering the continuing ceasefire, as Donbass is getting back on its feet and the US/EU-sponsored Kiev junta is slowly losing its positions, it is the right time to make a stand on Syria, in order to help normalize the situation. This again makes Russia a significant, or even leading, player in the Middle East, capable of resolving issues that USA, the self-appointed world policeman, cannot.
But it does something else much closer to home. It reminds the Kiev junta not to mess with Russia.
On that note, some important announcements:
In fact, I have some very important intel, which you won’t find anywhere else. I will release this intel about Syria, Russia, USA, Israel and what their real game is as an upcoming new Earth Shift Report. First, I will be releasing Earth Shift Report 5. Ukraine: New Khazarian Khaganate? It is coming in a few days. The ESR about Syria, Russia, USA and Israel will be the follow-up to Khazarian Khaganate.

Added 4/8/15: Greece – Russia Breakthrough: What did #Tsipras and #Putin discuss in Moscow – latest updates!
As I predicted in this post and in my earlier article and video (see links below), during today’s meeting in Moscow, Putin and Tsipras signed documents related to the extention of the Turkish Stream through Greece, making Greece into a major Russian gas distribution hub for Europe, including the Balcans, Hungary, Austria and Italy. Russia also offered Greece a credit. To bypass Russian agri sanctions against EU, Putin proposed joint Greek-Russian agricultural ventures. 50% of Greek imports to Russia were agriculture and food. Greece suffers tremendous losses from Russian EU agri ban, and the new joint venture plan is to reverse that . Putin’s video announcement in Russian.
Generally, Russia will continue the strategy of working with separate EU countries that want to do business with Russia, thus bypassing the unfriendly regimes and giving preferential treatement to the friendly ones.
In his statement, Putin also called on EU to terminate any sanctions against Russia, and Russia would then terminate any return sanctions against EU. Putin said that Russia is for working and having cordial relations with the entire “United Europe.”
4/7/15. Original article:
The Greek Dilemma: Between Russia and EU. PREDICTIONS by Lada Ray
Today’s Greek Dilemma: Between Russia and the EU. Or, between Moscow and the Hard Place.
Once the Greek government announced that PM Alexis Tsipras would be visiting Moscow on April 8 to talk to Putin, the howling among EU politicians and MSM became deafening.
The truth is, EU policies make countries that are in financial trouble seek help elsewhere. On one hand, EU talks about unity and EU values, on another creates an impossible situation for countries like Greece. By April 9, Greece has to come up with nearly €450 mln to repay IMF, and the money is scarce.
Right now, the new Greek government wants to play on differences between EU and Russia, which run deep due to Ukraine crisis. Another place where Greece can seek financing is China. But that will only happen after all the negotiations with Russia are complete and depending on their result. In the end, Russia may even broker a Greece-China deal, or the deal may be split between Russia and China. Basically, Russia is ready to consider Greek request, as announced by Russian FM Lavrov.
In a way, Greece is playing Russia and EU against each other. But the long-term consequences run much deeper. They range from Greece declaring bankruptcy and exiting the EU… to getting closer to Russia and China, with the end result of exiting the EU.
Should I say, I told you so? I have described this scenario in my article Predictions: The beginning of the EU End? When Will Greece Exit EU? Who Is Next?.
For more also see this LadaRayLive video: LRL6. Secret Connection: Russian Gas to Turkey-Greek Election-EU Breakup.
In the above pieces, I made a prediction that Greece would leave the EU around 2017. I feel that until then, Greece will try to work with EU in an effort to prevent default and further destruction of its economy, but these attempts won’t bring the desired result. All the relations, financial ties and debt relative to the EU will take some time to unwind. That’s why it will take until 2017 for Greece to disentangle from this mess (more on this topic in my above video and article).
The timing is also related to the timeline of the Turkish Stream, projected to be completed in 2017.
German taxpayer would bear most of the responsibility for bailing out Greece. From this perspective, Germany is right to be stingy. But Greece also has a trump card, which wouldn’t have been used if Germany weren’t squeezing Greece so hard. It is the thorny and long-buried issue of reparations the Nazi Germany never paid for the destruction during WWII. Will Greece get reparations? Not likely. But this toughness will help them bargain for a new bailout, or another payment postponement. This is a good bargaining chip to be sure that can be dangled every time Greece wants something from Germany.
The left-wing Syriza party currently in power is taking this tough bargaining position following its election promises to end austerity and re-negotiate country’s debt. It is clear that Syriza means business.
Relations between Greece and Russia
I said in my above-referenced pieces that Greece potentially can benefit tremendously from the Turkish Stream built by Russia through Turkey to the border with Greece. Russia proposes that Greece participate in the project by extending the pipeline through its territory to allow Russian gas to reach the target countries, such as Austria, Serbia and Hungary. This alone is tremendous incentive for Greece to take a pro-Russian position in the EU.
You’ll recall that the original South Stream from Russia to the EU was supposed to go through Bulgaria. However, after pressure from Brussels and a visit from McCain, Bulgaria suddenly disallowed South Stream through its territory, in direct opposition to the country’s interests. Who needs $750 mln a year in transit fees, new jobs, heavy gas discounts, business tourism and other perks. But Uncle McCain said no, and Bulgaria replied, ‘how high do you want me to jump?’ As a result, Russia cancelled South Stream.
None of what happened with Bulgaria is possible with the current leftist Greek government. McCain is certainly not invited. Many countries are interested in Russian gas going through Greece and this project is very much supported by Austria, Serbia and Hungary, among others.
Apart from that, the ruling Syriza party, being left-wing, is naturally and historically sympathetic to Russia.
Finally, Greece in general is traditionally, since centuries past, is staunchly pro-Russian. Greece, together with Cyprus, is even considered a ‘Russian Trojan Horse’ in the EU.
Greece is Orthodox, like Russia, not Catholic or Protestant. Similarity in religion creates affinity.
In addition, Greeks are eternally grateful to Russians for liberating them from the Turkish Osmanic Empire’s domination – and this is one of those cases when the country actually remembers the good. It’s interesting that at this point Greece, Turkey and Russia are working closely together, illustrating that nothing is eternal and things do change.
Therefore, old friendship and affinity run pretty deep. In this regard, nothing has to be built or created anew. The foundation is there, and all that has to be done is one small step towards each other. How far it will go is a different story because there is certain benefit for Russia if Greece stays in the EU – as I said, someone has to conduct pro-Russian policy within excessively russophobic EU. But there are also huge benefits to Greece turning closer to Russia.

During a meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Russian FM Sergey Lavrov pointed out that US does everything to ‘contain’ (I would say ‘sabotage’ – LR) Russia’s good relations with all other countries.
Meanwhile, China is calling on US to stop its saber-rattling and threatening rhetoric, and to start supporting peace. US new strategy in Asia is to supply the newest and most sophisticated weapons to its allies in the region to counter China’s rise.
China warns US against escalating tensions and urges US to take a cooperative and peaceful approach to bi-lateral relations, considering that China holds sway over trillion+ in US debt and is an important trade partner.
US has been trying to pressure China to take a less friendly to Russia position on the world stage. The Chinese response basically is that Russia is China’s most important strategic partner, sharing borders, cultural, geopolitical and economic interests in Eurasia, and their relations are none of the USA’s business. USA can think whatever it wants, but the truth is, Russia-China relations will only grow and strengthen.

Paul Craig Roberts and Guest Scientists about #Ebola: Is The US Government The Master Criminal Of Our Time?
Guest post by Paul Craig Roberts and two scientists about #Ebola:
UPDATE: As I read this notice from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the US National Institutes of Health, the US Government and Pharmaceutical corporations have been conducting ebola tests on humans. http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT02041715
This is official confirmation of Dr. Boyle and Dr. Broderick’s reports that the US government has conducted ebola experiments. Perhaps the vaccine was not effective, and those on whom the experiment was conducted came down with ebola and perhaps also employees in the US bio-warfare laboratories located in Africa where the experiment was conducted.
