I know we all crave something positive in our line of vision when the world is in such turmoil! And here it is!
This is such a cool story, and a charming nod to my recently updated Futurist Trendcast blog’s classic Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs?
Remember my various FORBIDDEN HISTORY & LINGUISTICS LESSONS, which are scattered throughout cyberspace?
Remember me talk about ancient Russian mystical knights, protectors and strongmen called Bogatyrs and Vityazs?
And there’s a very interesting intro to Bogatyrs and Vityazs in: Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? (free FT article – feel free to share with anyone!)
And with that little intro… Here’s a new story, and it’s cool and cute, and even synchronistic!
A Japanese MMA martial arts fighter Satoshi Ishii surprised everyone when he came out for the weigh-in, wearing Russian symbolism, including the official Russian two-headed eagle crest on his pants. Front and center on his shirt was the Russian symbolism with the words: Russkiy Vityaz’ (Russian Vityaz).
**Satoshi Ishii – Wikipedia: Satoshi Ishii is a Japanese-born judoka, mixed martial artist, kickboxer and submission grappler who has held Croatian citizenship since 2019 — and he’s the guy who knows his Forbidden History!
It has to be noted that the weighing took place in Japan. If it was in any EU country, you can guess what would happen to him: an immediate ban… an easy guess simply because of the word ‘Russkiy’ and ‘Russia’ and because of the Russian double-headed eagle on his outfit.
**Interesting! This looks to me like a predetermined synchronicity, a nod from the universe! I saw this picture exactly when I was updating Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs? and talking on Telegram about the renewed attempts to cancel the great Russian culture!
This synchronicity means:
PREVIOUSLY HIDDEN AND SUPPRESSED, THE TRUTH IS WAKING UP ON PLANET EARTH!
This seemingly little story also is a confirmation that the Earth Shift and Galactic Dawn are underway!

Several days to Ukraine elections and earth-shattering scandal after scandal is rolling in…
Ukraine UNDER THE RULE OF POROSHENKO AND THE KIEV JUNTA has become a quintessential 2D country, with the war of all against all, and all against the universally hated Poroshenko.
Poroshenko now has yet another dubious distinction: he is the world’s lowest rated country leader, per polls.
Election falsification and ‘the dead souls’
Poroshenko preparing to falsify elections is very much in the cards. Latest: 87% of Ukrainians, up from 70% believe these elections will be falsified. If you recall, we discussed previously that this gives Russia munitions to disavow their results. There may be more countries preparing to do the same.
Moreover, Prozorov’s revelations prepare the grounds for recognizing Ukraine as a rogue terrorist state.
You may recall I mentioned this in previous Ukraine report: the new scandal in Ukraine revolves around the ‘dead souls.’
The number of ballots printed is quoted at 35 million, while there are not even 20 million voters. Actually, the number of ballots exceeds the population of the country, which stands at around 25-28 million.
15 or more million non-existent ‘dead souls’ are expected to vote in this election.
Porhoshenko killed his own brother?
The new, even louder allegation arrived from Moldova. It accuses Poroshenko of killing his own brother. It may seem improbable, but there are many people who have confirmed that Poroshenko indeed had a brother.
According to sources, Poroshenko (who was originally from Moldova) together with his older brother Mikhail and a Moldavian partner had a ‘business’ in the 1990s in Moldova. I described this scheme in my novel The Earth Shifter: much like it was done by criminal oligarchs in Russia and Ukraine during the ’90s, they swindled 50,000 Moldavian citizens out of company shares, called ‘vouchers,’ which every citizen received as part of the privatization process after the USSR fell apart. Then, at one point it was decided that Mikhail was a third wheel and in 1997 he was killed…
Later, Poroshenko deleted out of his bio the fact that he had a brother.
Why is there a clash between US and Ukraine Attorney General Lutsenko?
Meantime, there is a row between US State Dept and Ukraine Attorney Gen. Lutsenko. He suddenly came out to say that the US ambassador to Ukraine has been telling him who he cannot put in jail because US doesn’t want it. Many have been perplexed by such bold announcement by Lutsenko, who is in Poroshenko’s pocket. Many don’t know what to make of it.
FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO POROSHENKO’S BROTHER,
MY VIEW OF THE CONFLICT BETWEEN UKRAINE ATTORNEY GEN VS. US,

2018 GRAND FINALE SPECIAL! SIBERIAN PROPHET & EARTH KEEPER ANASTASIA: POWER CALIBRATIONS & SOUL MISSION!
As my very special CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR 2019 GIFT TO YOU, you are reading FREE excerpt SIBERIAN PROPHET & EARTH KEEPER ANASTASIA: POWER CALIBRATIONS & SOUL MISSION from:
Prophet & Earth Keeper Anastasia, Russia (Inspiration behind the Ringing Cedars Series by Vladimir Megre, spiritual hermit in the Siberian wilderness)
3rd Chakra POWER VORTEX Quantum Calibrations
QC 580 – HIGH CREATION
CHI 680 – PEACE
Exceedingly high and rare! And remember, this is just Anastasia’s 3rd Chakra calibrations!
Her overall personal QC is 700 – FUNCTIONAL ENLIGHTENMENT!
Anastasia became famous and her enlightened wisdom guided people all over the world after Russian entrepreneur and people’s journalist Vladimir Megre (not his real name) visited her deep in the Siberian wilderness, where she lives away from civilization, in order to keep her spirit pure. Anastasia came up more than once during my private consultations, as some of my clients wanted to know more about her.
By now, the independently published Ringing Cedars series has been read by tens, if not hundreds, of millions of people on dozens of languages all over the world. It awakened many lightworkers, wayshowers, energy beacons, grid holders and truth keepers. It showed the way to millions of advanced souls, who in turn shone the light and awakened millions upon millions of others.
This is how the Great Earth Shift began in the 1990s, in the hearts and minds of people, first in Russia, and then all over the world!
Anastasia, as it’s supposed to be at her level of consciousness and manifestation, simply projected the need for Vladimir to find her, in order to spread her light and guidance around the world during this time of the Earth Shift. She doesn’t call it that, of course – that’s my terminology. But her predictions about Russia being the beacon of spiritual hope for the rest of the world in the 21st century is consistent fully with my Russia the Great Balancer theory.
Due to Anastasia’s hermit situation, her teachings and light had to be spread through an intermediary. It had to be done through the written word and Vladimir Megre was a perfect conduit. Anastasia taught him how to do it right, for maximum effect. The soul agreement to meet was made by Anastasia and Vladimir in higher dimensions, and this meeting was predestined.
I am sure what I’m telling you is probably described in the Ringing Cedars books. I didn’t read them. I am telling you what I am seeing clearly not through books, but through higher dimensions, the same way I tell you things about you and your loved ones, just based on your name during our private Skype consultations and through my written reports.
Az was one of the tens of millions who was enchanted by the Ringing Cedars series and he bought the whole early edition, which at the time was independently printed in Germany in the English language, based on donations. When Az and I first met, we clicked right away and he immediately understood what I was talking about when I mentioned the Great Earth Shift. He was prepared, because Az was also one of the people awoken by Anastasia and Vladimir Megre’s Ringing Cedars. Well, and by late Osho, too.
Everyone is always shocked to find out that I personally never read The Ringing Cedars, despite the fact that we have the complete series at home. And I always explain that I don’t need to. I already know the full story from higher dimensions and Akashic Records.
If I need to, I can any time connect with Anastasia and other important souls in the higher realms, the process I described (fictionally, of course) in my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. It is that multidimensional space where the Earth Keepers meet. I connect with some others on the list the same way. This is, for example, how I know so much about Putin and his mission (see ESW6).

Great Awakener, Light & Energy Beacon, Wisdom Keeper, Healer
A Triple: EARTH KEERER, EARTH SHIFTER, EARTH PROTECTOR

Finally, we are able to delve further into one of the reader most requested topics, FORBIDDEN vs. TRUE HISTORY & LINGUISTICS. This report is a continuation of one of FuturisTrendcast’s most popular articles: Forbidden History: Are Scandinavians Slavs?
Over the past 3 years many have asked me about the meaning and mystery of my name. Some of my astute readers have figured it out on their own. This is evident when some of you call me ‘Lady Lada.’ 😉
Today, I want to tell you the whole story…
Goddess Lada – Russian painting
The ancient Russian Vedic Goddess Lada is often depicted with white swans or white doves. Lada is very powerful and her Earthly responsibilities are many. She is in charge of such uplifting things as: spring and summer, sun, harmony and balance, goodness, friendship and good will, love and happy marriage, overcoming obstacles, smooth sailing, positivity and good luck. Lada is also responsible for creativity, abundance and children.
Goddess of Harmony Lada’s temple and her symbols: wisdom, light, white swans, water and ladias
Russian language: the Earth’s Truth Code
You may have heard me say this before. There had been many times in history when it was dangerous to speak the truth, for which punishment would be death. Then, in their infinite wisdom, the Wise Ones and Earth Keepers hid the clues in plain sight, leaving them behind for future generations to re-discover. Although compromised due to centuries of various extraneous elements littering it, the Russian language remains the Earth’s Ultimate Truth Code and one of the most important living proofs of humanity’s true history and roots, hidden in plain sight.
The role of Sanskrit, the closest sister language to Russian is the same: to serve as the hidden treasure trove of the keys to rediscover the truth. The Sanskrit Vedas have preserved much of it. The drastic difference is that Sanskrit has not survived the impact with reality. It is by all definitions, a dead language, studied based on ancient texts that thank goodness survived. Only the tiniest of echoes of Sanskrit remain in contemporary Hindi.
Russian is a full-fledged major living and evolving language that has been preserved by the population of the Great Russia despite persecution and wholesale destruction of memory, ancient knowledge, Vedic wisdom and books. Speaking of which, when people remark to me in reply to my mentioning the Rus Vedic past that it sounds just like Hindu Vedas, this is simply because it is one and the same.
The huge value of Sanskrit and Hindu Vedas is that they were more hidden and therefore missed by the West, when history was re-written. Therefore, they avoided a wholesale destruction, such as the Russian Vedic chronicles endured. This is why Sanskrit, the frozen in time language, is so important to re-discovering our true roots.
In very ancient days, when the Ice Age made it impossible for people to exist in the far north between the Ural Mountains and Siberia, where the original Arian Vedic Rus civilization flourished, also referred to as Hyperborea, one branch of it spread to Europe and another to what is today called India, becoming Brahmans and bringing the Vedic philosophy. There were other branches that moved further south as well, at different times. The Vedic philosophy and lifestyle was prevalent among the people of not only contemporary Russia/Ukraine/Belarus/Siberia and much of northern Eurasia (together we may call it the Rus Civilization), but all around Northern, Western and Central Europe as well.
What does the word Vedic or Vedism mean? It means ‘true knowledge.’ Every day, without thinking, we use a large number of derivatives from these words. They are present not only in Russian, but in many European languages – clues hidden in plain sight.
According to Russian researchers, the Vedic vision and lifestyle were gradually suppressed in Western and Central Europe approximately between 10th and 16th centuries, Catholic religion and inquisition playing the key role. Together with it, the ancient Rus language was also replaced all over Europe.
Despite Russia adopting Christianity, Vedism coexisted with the new religion more peacefully and remained prevalent in Russia until about 17-18th centuries. At that point a drastic shift towards the West occurred in Russia, and Vedism was brutally and subversively suppressed, to be replaced with overly aggressive, yang, individualistic, profit and money oriented culture of then Western Europe.
Ancient books were destroyed, carriers of Vedic knowledge were eliminated and true history was re-written, shortening, mutilating and isolating Russian history, while glorifying and lengthening the history of everything else.
It was history’s grandest heist pulled in front of everyone’s eyes. And humans just ate it up, or became complicit. I have only began scratching the surface of the truth – much more to follow in my future EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS!
It was part of the previous global rebalancing. Between 15th and 18th centuries, Russia the Great Balancer gradually shifted the weight of the world’s development towards the West, to allow for a more yang-energy and individual-values-driven development of mankind. This seemed a necessary adjustment due to the excess of yin in human existence aT the time. But as it so often happened in human history, it went all wrong. The West perceived the shift facilitated by Russia the Great Balancer as a gift from heaven, thinking itself exceptional. Instead of serving others, it began its global quest to subdue the rest of the world.
But nothing is forever, and today The Great Balancer has begun another EARTH SHIFT, away from the West. Unlike the previous shifts, this one is different and aims to restore the proper yin-yang balance on our planet, ushering in the era of Russia. This is why I call it THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT.
Because of the THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT, the hidden clues are beginning to be revealed. The majority of them are re-discovered in Russian language, but a large number turn out to be hidden dormant in other languages, such as English, Ukrainian, Swedish, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin, Sanskrit and others. As the consciousness of mankind awakens, these clues suddenly begin being understood by those who have eyes. More and more information is coming to the surface, as the right people come along who can show the way.
Since I was a child I was pointing out certain inconsistencies and discrepancies in the official narrative. I was 5 and just learned to read when my parents took me to the Odessa’s unique and beautiful Archeological Museum. The guide was droning on about the unknown and mysterious civilization of Etruscans, who lived in Italy circa 700 BC, and how their language to this day cannot be deciphered by linguists. She showed us the amazing pieces of art they left behind. Even then, at my early age, it was hard to imagine these pieces were made in 700 BC, when – if we were to believe the contemporary fake historical science – humans were much less evolved than us today, when technology for making such exquisite items shouldn’t have existed.
Being small, my eyes were level with the sign on the glassed stand, which read: ‘Etruscan stella, circa 700 BC, language unknown.’ In Russian the name of that mysterious ethnos read like Etruski. I whispered the word to myself, bored with the guide’s not very interesting story. Suddenly, I announced for all adults to hear: ‘Etruski means ‘Eti Ruskie. They were Russians!’ (Eti Ruskie means ‘These Russians.’)
A silent scene that followed was worthy of a thriller: adults in the room just looked at each other perplexed. Later the incident seemed to have been forgotten. The one thing that transpired was my mother apparently deciding that I was supposed to be a linguist and translator (I think she secretly hoped I’d become a diplomat, actually). Shortly after, she hired me a private English language tutor. My love of everything linguistics never went away and I eventually ended up with summa cum laude Masters in Linguistics and Translation.
When I was a child, and later a teen, there were other discoveries of truths hidden in plain sight, such as another mysteriously extinct civilization and language, whose location was once in today’s Germany. I knew since I was barely 6 or 7 that Prussia meant Po-Russia and the now ‘dead’ Prussian language was in fact ‘Po-Russian.’
How did I know? I simply looked at the word in front of me and read it correctly. Why weren’t others able to perceive the clues? Because most people don’t think and don’t pay attention – it’s that simple.
Many years later I began receiving confirmations from various linguistic, historic, archeological and esoteric sources, which were not given the time of day by the scientific and mainstream communities, that what I interpreted was correct. And it was only very recently that I received a definitive confirmation from the world-famous Prof. Chudinov that what my 5-year-old self knew was 100% true. Chudinov read the ‘illegible and mysterious’ dead language of the Etruscans, using one of the four ancient Russian alphabets / writing styles called ‘the mirror writing.’ He confirmed that the name Et-Ruski (Etruscans) signified Eti Ruskie. The only difference, he actually thought that because of the ‘mirror’ writing’ the prefix should be reversed and it should be read as ‘Te Ruskie,’ meaning ‘Those Russians’ as opposed to ‘These Russians’ who, as Chudinov postulated were the Rus population residing in the primary Great Russian space (contemporary Russia, Belarus and Ukraine). I won’t argue on that finer point, but I am still inclined towards my 5-year-old interpretation. As we know, the ultimate truth tends to come from a child’s mouth.
Throughout my life, I once in a while amused myself with forbidden history’s linguistic puzzles. I’d take a word and peer into it, dissecting it into syllables. Then I would look into what these syllables represented. No one ever taught me that in college, so along the way I also discovered my own Forbidden Linguistics method. I learned that the words’ syllables contained much more information than seemed on the surface and that each word no matter how complex, in any language, was formed based on a limited number of seemingly simple building blocks of syllables, roots, suffixes, prefixes and endings. The trick was to put these building blocks together in such a way that it would create the magic of communication. Within these simple syllables the true forbidden linguistics mysteries were revealed.
Of course, the quintessentially synthetic Russian language turned out to be a treasure trove of secret meanings. But even with purely analytical languages such as English, the amount of information gleaned could be exciting.
Our smart ancestors packed every sound and syllable with a huge range of knowledge. Each consonant and vowel contained a number of important meanings. As more syllables were added to the word, it could express a truly colossal range of notions. Each word, like Lego, could be built and rebuilt in many ways using these intricate building blocks. Oftentimes, I saw full syllables or even full words, compressed or shortened, as we have seen with Prussia above.
I have known for years that a massive amount of meddling was done to our history and that the separation on countries, languages and ethnic groups was often artificial or false. There is much, much more to the story. As we continue to journey through The Great Earth Shift, I’ll continue telling you everything I know.
Today, our topic is the Goddess Lada. Using Lada Ray’s Forbidden Linguistics Syllable Building Block Method, allow me to tell you how the word was formed and what it signifies.
La in the ancient Vedic Rus mother language signified fertility. It can also signify creativity, joy and positive emotion. Before it signified that, it actually signified the male reproductive organ. La is a very interesting syllable, which is also a sound. You know how when we hum a wordless song, we go ‘la, la, la.’ The reason we unconsciously hum it is that it is embedded in our genetic makeup that la symbolizes something good and something positive. From the perspective of an ancient human what could be more positive than perpetuation of the species and joy that comes with an act of doing so?.. It is no wonder that Lada is often depicted with children.
A telling example: La, as used in today’s Spanish, signifies the female beginning. La mujer – a moman, La niña – a girl, La casa – a house.
Later, due to the association with fertility and phallus, La (or lia) also became a building block in signifying an open field. A field could signify a long, large, flat surface, a stretch of flat land, as well as fertile ground. The following words were formed: Russian: po-lia-na and po-lie (poliana and polie both mean fields of different sizes and designation). Ukrainian: lan – same meaning.
Da means yes in Russian. In ancient times, Da was often added to words to underscore the affirmative, positive nature of certain notions. The derivatives of Da or words descended from Da in combination with other Building Block syllables were added as well. You’ll be astonished if you knew how many words in various Western and Eastern languages, which insist on being completely separate and unrelated to Russian, carry Da as part of their makeup. This applies equally to many other important Building Block syllables.
Therefore, the very evocative meaning of the word Lada is:
Yes! This is the Goddess of Fertility, Harmony and Positive Energy!
It gets more interesting when we look at all the words originating from ‘Lada.’ I’ll just share a few, from Russian and English. And I guarantee that these examples will blow you away!
Ladia: ancient Rus word for boat or ship.
Keep this in mind when pronouncing ‘A’ in any Russian word! Russian ‘a’ doesn’t sound anything like English. The closest pronunciation is that of ‘u’ in the word ‘cut,’ however, Russian sound ‘a’ is more open, more powerful and longer.
Ancient Rus ship is called Ladia
The intricately carved and skillfully built wooden boats in those days had the shape of a swan with the bow decorated with an image of a swan, or some other important protector and energizer, such as firebird or dragon. This shape was both ergonomic and stable on the water. It also elicited an image of a graceful swan, who floats smoothly and effortlessly on the water or in the sky. Therefore, it’s easy to understand why Lada is often depicted with a swan and why she is responsible for the smooth sailing and dispelling obstacles.
Ladon’ (This word ends in ‘myaghkiy znak’ – ‘the soft sign,’ one of the unique Russian letters that doesn’t exist in Latin alphabet. The soft sign doesn’t have independent sound value; its job is to make any consonant it follows very soft). Ь – Мягкий знак (soft sign) and Ъ – твёрдый знак (hard sign).
Ladon’ means palm. You can also pronounce it as ‘ladoshka,’ which is an endearing version.
The word ladon’ consists of two parts: lada (or lado) and na. The Russian word Na means ‘here,’ ‘take it, ‘have it.’ The meaning is that of a generous, magnanimous offer. When you extend your hand you may be offering your good will and friendship. Therefore, lado-na, which later became ladon’ is in fact an extension to another person of an open hand, an offering of harmony, friendship and lad.
The Russian word lad, unchanged till today, means just that: harmony and life in graceful agreement with one’s environment.
Speaking of the word lad. Does it remind you of anything, by any chance?
What about this: ‘he’s a strapping young lad.’ According to the online dictionary ‘English’ word lad means ‘a lively or dashing man or youth.’ If you ask the online dictionary to define a strapping young lad, here’s what it’ll tell you: it is a young man who is strong, tall, and looks healthy and active.
If you try to look up the etymology of this English word, you’ll probably find all kinds of academics who wasted their entire lives promoting false theories of the origin of this or that, telling you that it comes from medieval English, etc, etc. But what was really there before ‘medieval English’ ?..
Most likely you won’t hear anyone (except me, that is) tell you the obvious: the seemingly English word lad is in fact the Russian word lad (just remember that Russian ‘a’ is pronounced like the ‘u’ in hut, but more open and longer).
If anyone in the English-speaking academic circles mentions that there could be a Russian connection, their work will be sidetracked and they will get ignored, or worse. Not being published, noticed, given tenure or grants is the death of any Western academic. That’s why if they have no principles or talent, they simply toe the line, or if they do, they suffer in obscurity or get thrown out of the field.
The word Lad in Russian means harmony. The adjective ladniy (masculine) and ladnaya (feminine) signify a young man or young woman who are tall, well-built, healthy and physically strong and active. About a young man or woman who possess these characteristics one would say: ladnaya devka (for a girl) or ladniy paren’ (for a young guy / bloke). Now compare that to the ‘strapping young lad.’ It is identical.
Incidentally, the adverb ladno means in Russian ok, fine, it’s a deal. In the olden days, this word would be used when a deal was struck, which would often be accompanied with a shake of hands on a deal well agreed upon.
Lada as a young Russian maiden
And here we are getting to the most interesting part, the ultimate proof, so to speak. I know some of my astute readers may have already figured it out.
The English word for lady, such as ‘Lady Diana,’ is simply put, a derivative of the word Lada. In fact, the contemporary English ending ‘y’ is shortened and modified ‘in.’ This was done to make its origin unrecognizable. The same is true for the popular English ending ‘ing.’
I wrote previously in ESR6 that the ancient Vedic Rus syllable in signified being a part of something, belonging to an inner circle, having allegiance with, or being a derivative or descendant (a small particle) of something big and important.
You don’t have to go far: in the contemporary English we use in every day. Such as: are you in or out, inner, insider.
The very earliest meaning of in is even more striking. It signified the female essence. The word we use today as yin (as in yin-yang) was originally in.

Therefore, a Lady is a female who follows in the path of the Goddess Lada. This is a woman who is harmonious, fertile, positive, sunny and helpful, who possesses dignity and poise, a good mother, partner and mistress of her domain. Such women were highly regarded and valued and they at one point began being called Lady – a follower or small particle of Lada. To this day you hear people say, ‘I am a lady.’ This usually refers to a situation when a woman won’t stoop to untoward behavior because she has dignity and values herself.
It was much later that the ego led humans to begin using this word, which was supposed to be based strictly on one’s merit, as hereditary title, regardless of whether one deserved it or not.

Speaking of which, did you notice the use of the verb led, past tense from lead? I won’t go into details of how it was formed, but this is yet another example of a word derived from Lada. It’s easy to see why: Goddess Lada is responsible for dispelling obstacles, for smooth journey or sailing. Leading (do you see what I see: lead-in), when the whole path is laid out in front of you (laid – yet another Lada derivative!) is one of the aspects of a smooth journey!

What’s the meaning of the name Vladimir?
The name Vladimir is another very famous derivative of lad and Lada. One of the eternally popular Russian names, it possesses rare charm and universal appeal. Why is that? Because even if you don’t know what the name means, you feel its potent energy.
Most Russians think that Vladimir means ‘The Master of the World.’ This is because the two obvious words it consists of are:
- Noun Vlada (power) or as a verb it will be Vladet’ (to own, to be the master of) These are the contemporary meanings of the words Vlada and Vladet’.
- And Mir (dual meaning: world, as well as peace).
However, if you base your analysis on my Building Blocks Method and see it multidimensionally, you’ll be able to discern the original true intent behind the name V-ladi-mir.
V – Lada – Mir
V means in
Lada means harmony, balance
V lade (in this case it’s variation v-ladi) means in harmony
Mir means peace and world
The whole name Vladimir, therefore, means:
In Harmony with the World AND In Harmony with Peace
Another way of putting it is:
He who brings the harmonious world (peace)
There are talking names that speak for themselves, and one of the most speaking names is that of the Russian President:
Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin – double Vladimir!
Incidentally, my patronymic is also Vladimirovna. The Universe must be telling us something… 😉
We’ll go deeper into the Russian Truth Code in the future EARTH SHIFT WEBINARS! Particularly look for THE PUTIN ENIGMA and THE DESTINY OF RUSSIA. I’ll speak of the mystical sign of the times expressed through Putin’s name and reveal the real multidimensional meaning of his very existence. Release projected for the end of 2017!
Meet Lada the Car
I know this is a very unlikely example, but when you think about it, it’s very much in line with the whole Russian forbidden history and Goddess Lada story.
The ship will sail the way you name it. Give it a great name and a successful journey is assured. This applies fully to Lada the Car, a car that had no right to exist, considering the amount of ridicule it encountered in its life. It certainly shouldn’t have survived the ’90s, when stronger Russian companies had disappeared. And yet this underdog of the global car market survived and continues thriving, despite all odds. I like to say that the name of the Goddess of Harmony and Good Luck is what pulled it through and made it stronger.
There has been much said in the West, including the ridicule, about Russian/Soviet compact sedan called Lada, also known as Zhiguli. To be fair, many Russians to this day are equally unduly critical of Lada Zhiguli, as well as anything the Tolyatti car manufacturer VAZ has ever produced. I daresay this is a strange knee jerk overreaction of a certain part of the population to the fact that at one point Mercedes, Toyota-Lexus and Cadillac owned the global market with their luxury and not so luxury vehicles. I do not understand these people at all. There is a place for all types of vehicles and all types of budgets in the market. Lada Zhiguli certainly has its own niche, and its own loyal following.
Those few who still preserve this kind of attitude, whether in Russia or beyond, suffer from a severe inferiority complex. The majority of people who drive Russian cars are absolutely fine with it, although a large percentage of Russians owns foreign vehicles.
Despite all the above, throughout decades in the West a very serious, albeit small cult following developed for the Lada cars. They are very economical, handle great in the toughest environments and cost a fraction of what the nearest competitor charges. While the new models keep coming up, some of which were quite cool, at the same time the manufacturer VAZ has decided not to change the retro Soviet look of the originals, classic Lada Niva mini SUV and compact Lada Zhiguli. There is such nostalgia nowadays for everything retro that Lada is back en vogue.
Classic all-terrain Lada Niva
Classic retro green Lada Zhiguli – love the color
In 1980s we owned one in retro blue, like on the pic below:
And this is my namesake, new cool-looking Lada X-Ray:
Incidentally, the logo of Lada’s manufacturer is the ancient Russian ship Ladia, which makes sense since Lada is the goddess of smooth sailing, among other things.
The adventurous Lada X-Ray crossover – check out the Ladia logo on the front grill. Lada cars are promoted as very sturdy and reliable all-terrain vehicles:
Finally, Russians began promoting their stuff and putting their best foot forward a bit! It took VAZ employing some Brits to accomplish it though. It used to be that Russians were shy to mention even their biggest achievements. Writing a job resume could be a personal tragedy, since one isn’t supposed to brag, you know. And forget promo or boasting! Now you know the real secret why the flashy, manipulative and boastful West was able to get an upper hand over Russia for so long! But now, at long last, that Ladia (ship) has sailed…

Falsified history and linguistics all around us! In fact, we all exist in a soup of lies and deceit!
One of the bogus theories that has been dominant for centuries is the so-called Norman or Normanist Theory of the origin of the Kievan Rus. The opposite has been proven exhaustively for many years, yet the truth still gets swept under the rug in the West, and it is only now slowly making its way through Russian culture. You can read more in Are Scandinavians Slavs?
Another theory that has been pervasive for many centuries is that of Etruscans, their origin and language. According to anything you’ll read anywhere ‘it was a mysterious culture of unknown origin (!) that resided in what is today Italy, circa 700 BC, left beautiful objects of art and spoke the mysterious Etruscan language that no one can decipher.’ Don’t believe me, just look at this Wikipedia post.
When I hear any of this, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. It is worrying how either inept or sold-out the so-called ‘academics’ are. In other words a very advanced civilization appeared for a short time out of the blue in the middle of Italy. Then, having created a large number of advanced art objects and an absolutely illegible writing system unrelated to anything else in existence, it for no reason at all just went poof!
According to Russian scientists, most notably linguist Prof. Chudinov, Profs. Fomenko and Nosovsky (authors of the controversial New Chronology), Etruscans still resided on the peninsula we call today Italy as late as 16th, possibly as late as 17th, century AD. Recognized as very skilled artisans, sculptors and architects, it was Etruscans and derivative ethnicities who created many amazing architectural wonders of Italy we admire today. The ‘unreadable’ language of Etruscans, which some forces went to great pains to erase or falsify, was freely read by Prof. Chudinov using… Russian language.
A somewhat similar situation has occurred with another obvious culture that mysteriously ‘disappeared’ without a trace, Prussians. According to the official data, the ‘dead’ Prussian language just happened to vanish some time during medieval times, along with the entire population who spoke it.
It was also shown by both Chudinov and the Fomenko/Nosovsky School of the New Chronology that history of ancient Rome, Greece, Egypt, etc., was falsified and aged to make the West seem older. Russian history was made shorter and less significant. Further, these and other researchers demonstrated how the world’s grandest ever theft had taken place in front of people’s very eyes: between 17th and 18th centuries many events from Russian history were stolen or twisted, and attributed to the West. In other words, black was made white and vice versa. This bomb of a story is long, shocking and revealing. One day I’ll tell you everything I know…
I have only heard about Chudinov, Fomenko/Nosovsky and other Russian researchers, such as late Prof. Svetlana Zharnikova and late Prof. Levashov, a year or so ago, when I first began searching for confirmations of my own theories and discoveries on the Internet. More and more information is becoming public daily, and more and more voices sound, adding to the whole picture of historic truths vs. falsehood.
I do not necessarily agree with every single conclusion presented by these researchers, but I do agree with their vision, main premise and grand principle of their studies and revelations.
I also disagree with those who try to use this new vision of human history as a means to elevate the Russians and Vedic Rus above everyone else. This reverse elitism I don’t condone. I certainly understand that in big part it is a backlash against many years of grave injustices and vilification suffered by Russians. Such response is consistent with the law of pendulum: the further the pendulum swings in one direction, the bigger the inertia that will carry it in the opposite direction, to compensate for it.
However, Russians at their core are very fair, generous and magnanimous. The moment humanity stops brewing in falsehoods it has created and acknowledges the real contribution of the Rus, Russians will forgive and extend their ladon’ (hand) yet again.
The Lada Law – law of harmony and good will – will again be in effect
I strongly believe that we are all ONE: close relatives, brothers and sisters. The reason we need to know the truth is not to feel superior to others. Only those with an inferiority complex need that. This fresh knowledge and wisdom are necessary for mankind to get out of the vicious karmic loop in which it is stuck, akin to the groundhog day effect. Only by looking the truth in the eye, making peace, by reconciling our differences and wisely rising above past errors will humanity break the karmic cycle.
The parts of humanity that need this closure more than others include: the West, namely USA, Canada and Europe; Ukraine; the Middle East; Africa. Others have lesser karmic debt of varying degrees.
Unfortunately, in the past humans stubbornly preferred not to see the truth because of their ego, fear and greed. As a result, when karmic conflict became insurmountable, wars would begin. Alternatively, plague, cholera and other diseases materialized. Another version of karmic retribution could be Ice Ages, earth quakes, The Great Flood, or the Comet of Karma as described in my novel, The Earth Shifter. After wars and calamities, invariably humans would see the light, reform, talk with each other, and try to create a more peaceful existence. Yet, after a while, human memory would fail again.
Some of us are here to remind the rest of humanity that there is a better way. We often have talking names – those names that wayshow what we are here to do. Such as Lada Ray. Or Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.
Why history was falsified and Russian history shortened
The same sorry state of affairs is taking place in other sciences. A good example is archeology. A very common situation is when an archeologist finds items inconsistent with official theories. Such discoveries, offered to us by the Mother Earth in order to give a hint of our true history, normally get buried.
The reason for that is threefold:
1. A powerful sold-out ‘academic’ lobby that exists in any science. Such lobby, consisting of those who built their careers on false theories, cannot fathom allowing any other theories, which would dampen their reputations and render their entire lives useless. In other words, an ordinary human ego at work.
2. The consciousness of mankind, I am sorry to say, is still not good enough and high enough to allow the truth to come through. When consciousness is high enough, the breakthrough has to happen. There are hopeful indications that the truth is being heard by more advanced humans. The cracks in the old are developing, and I, on my part, will do everything in my power to help spread the truth, knowledge and light as The Great Earth Shift progresses and takes hold on the planet.
3. The most obvious reason for falsifications and today’s false reality is the extreme Russophobia by the West. There is a very serious and deep-seated reason for that. I discussed it previously in ESRs and articles, and I will definitely continue talking about it.
To wet your appetite, here is a brief version: The drive of the overly yang West to suppress and malign Russia the Great Balancer has to do with the desire to take over the world.
To be sure, Russians are as much to blame for allowing all this to happen. That said, we have to look into the future. It is now time to correct the horrific distortions and right the wrongs.
My favorite multidimensional tools for revealing the truth & undoing falsified history
As I mentioned many a time, in fact, linguistics is probably our best multidimensional tool for figuring out how much our past has been distorted and what our true history should look like. In connection with other disciplines, such as anthropology, geology, archeology, genetics, as well as the very unlikely sciences such as math, astronomy and computer science, linguistics can recreate the picture of true history of which we were robbed.
To be honest, there are much better multidimensional tools for knowing your past, present and future. These tools are Vedic in nature. They are claircognizance, clairaudience, psychic regression or progression, shamanic travel and Akashic Records. Quantum Calibrations performed through kinesiology testing are also helpful.
However, most humans cannot understand these tools, nor know how to use them. As mentioned, the human consciousness level isn’t allowing such advanced tools to be used properly.
In this situation, the very best tool is actually linguistics, including etymology, toponymics, comparative linguistics (not the false kind used today, but the true one), true timeline & temporal linguistics. But forget history of languages and anything that relies on formalized history, as much of it is a lie. The new promising tool, introduced by Russian linguist Valery Chudinov, is called geo-linguistics. Chudinov is very important to rediscovery of our true roots. Remember this name, you’ll hear me mention it in the future!

FORBIDDEN HISTORY & FORGOTTEN ORIGINS
Where all is revealed!
I have to interrupt the regularly scheduled posts I promised you all yesterday for this huge breaking news. Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev has been detained earlier today in Russia. He was caught red-handed while accepting a bribe. In Russian Criminal Code a bribe ‘received in an especially large amount’ carries a much stricter punishment. (Alexey Ulyukaev – Wikipedia)
According to the Russian news, Putin knew about this sting operation from the start. The police advised Putin of Ulyukaev’s detention. Following that, Putin discussed the situation with the head of the government, PM Dmitry Medvedev.
Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that Putin was informed of the operation from the start and that the allegations are very serious. Either way, he said, Ulyukaev’s guilt will be decided by court.
From Rossia24: Ulyukaev caught red-handed while receiving a bribe of $2 million. He was under surveillance for a year. He demanded the $2mln bribe from Rosneft, promising a positive evaluation of the Rosneft deal to purchase 50% of state-owned shares of Bashneft (both major oil companies).
Here’s another video on the Ulyukaev court action.
This detention follows a string of high-profile cases against high-level officials in Russia for corruption, including governors, mayors and police.
Read about billions of rubles and dollars in cash found in possession of a police colonel. This, thriller-worthy story is described in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 15: PUTIN’S PLUTONIUM ULTIMATUM TO THE US. I explain how this enormous stash, with dollar stacks still in the original US Federal Reserve wrappers and neatly stored in a high-security luxury Moscow condo, was supposed to be used to stage color revolution in Russia.
The Ulyukaev arrest has been touted as the new, more decisive round of cleaning up the corruption. It’s about time. Russians at large are in total support of this move.
The real significance of Ulyukaev’s arrest
The fight with corruption is great and it has to be done, no question about it. It’s also great that Russian police and court are able finally to act boldly and get things done against the high-profile targets, who managed to avoid punishment in the past. These are very, very good news. Especially when you compare it to the disaster the police and court have become in many other countries.
But there’s much more to the story and it has a very important twist. Ulyukaev is considered the 5th column in Russia. Just like the majority of the so-called ‘economic block of the government,’ the patriotic circles consider him an ‘enemy’ working against the interests of Russia and for the interests of the Western NWO. The proof of how deep the tentacles of the US FED and various anti-Russian interests have penetrated into Russia during the 90s is how Russian Central Bank behaved during anti-Russian sanctions and during the 2014 attack on the ruble.
Another proof is the near disastrous situation with the once great Russian/Soviet educational system. Once Russia began following the Western system, with its silly standardized tests and lack of real education, the IQ and scores started dangerously slipping. A couple of months ago, another member of the government’s ‘economic block’ and another member of the pro-West, neo-liberal 5th column, the minister of education Livanov, was dismissed based on his performance. Around the same time, the former Russian ambassador to Ukraine, credited with allowing the Kiev maidan and coup slip between his fingers, was also dismissed.
Kiev junta refused to accept the new Russian ambassador, which means the Russian embassy operates without its head – not a good position to be. Without pausing for a breath and in an openly tongue-in-cheek move, Putin appointed ex-minister Livanov “the high representative to Ukraine on economic ties and cultural cooperation.” I might add: ‘the destroyed by Kiev and now almost non-existent economic Ukraine-Russia ties and cultural cooperation.’ The mocking part is obvious: since Kiev refuses to accept a real ambassador, the man who has been dismissed for poor performance (in education, no less) will be a perfect match for the Idiocracy+ dumb and dumber that have taken over the poor Ukraine.
Incidentally, the new Russian minister of education is a woman, and she is expected to bring education back up to the standards Russians are used to. Long-term I am optimistic, but it’ll take some years…
Back to Ulyukaev. The Russian patriotic and serious analytical circles alike have been for years demanding the dismissal of Livanov, Ulyukaev, Greff (head of Sberbank), minister of health, and others from the economic block. Interestingly enough, PM Dmitry Medvedev is often included in these demands. While I agree about everyone else on the list, I disagree about Medvedev. I’ll explain in THE PUTIN ENIGMA book (which will be released in 2017) who Medvedev really is and why he is important to Russia.
Therefore, this dismissal tied to Ulyukaev’s corruption is a very important signal that the society demands are being heard. I can’t overemphasize how important this move is.
The arrest of Khodorkovsky, Lebedev and the breakup of Yukos back in the mid-2000s signaled the beginning of an end of the Russian oligarchs and the end of the Western enslavement of the Russian economy.
The arrest of Ulyukaev, the key figure in the pro-West economic block, signals the beginning of the restoration of Russia’s full economic sovereignty.
The timing is important too: right after Trump won US elections. We’ll continue seeing that the very fact of Trump victory will have enormous influence on many countries.I’ll discuss that fully during the January-February live webinars.
Incidentally, Ulyukaev presided over the proposed sale of the 19% of Rosneft (state-owned oil giant) to private investors. This sale has been vehemently opposed in Russia, and yet, after years of delays and popular resistance, it was still going through.
So far the info is very scarce. But I strongly suspect that as a result of Ulyukaev’s arrest, the Rosneft sale will be scrapped. Other state assets were also pushed to be sold by Ulyukaev, despite complaints and mass resistance. Basically, he is one of the most hated men in Russia, probably next to Khodorkovsky. He was one of those who pushed for neo-liberal anti-Russian privatization reforms in the ’90s.
Again, recall what I wrote about Khodorkovsky in ESR3: Oligarch Wars. He was arrested on money and tax evasion laundering charges. Yes, he was guilty of all that, and that was how they were able to best nail him. But his real crime was treason: he attempted to sell Russian strategic assets he previously stole from the Russian people, to the US. Subsequently, he wanted to take over Russia by buying up the Duma deputies, with subsequent turning of Russia into a colony of the US/NWO. If Putin and his team weren’t on their toes, if Putin didn’t have the courage to act, Russia – the Great Balancer would disappear. There would be no one left to counter the Western aggression and neo-colonialism. And today, dear friends, we would all be slaves in the fully NWO-controlled world.
The whole fictionalized story of what went on and how Khodorkovsky was arrested is described in my novel THE EARTH SHIFTER. In it, oligarch Konukovsky is styled after the infamous Khodorkovsky. Oligarch Yury Gurevich in my other novel GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure) is a composite of a couple of oligarchs I knew, plus another infamous ex-oligrach, Boris Berezovsky. All my books are sold on Amazon. (More on BOOKS).
My suspicion (I’ll confirm it when I have more intel) is that in line with the true, secret reasoning for Khodorkovsky’s mid-2000s arrest, there is much more to the Ulyukaev story. I suspect he was involved in a lot more wrongdoing than is being publicly admitted by authorities, no doubt due to the ongoing investigation.
And let’s recall what I predicted in EARTH SHIFT REPORT 15: PUTIN’S PLUTONIUM ULTIMATUM TO THE US: next step is nationalization of the ruble and Central Bank. Putin will continue systematically and carefully moving in the right direction. Ulyukaev’s arrest is another step, clearing the way for the implementation of this goal. Putin’s moves are never random. They are a part of the carefully thought-out strategic chess game very few can see.
Americans will do well to take a leaf out of the Russians’ book. Incidentally, Trump just might ‘clean that swamp’!
Trump and Putin already had a phone conversation, in which they agreed on cooperation in Syria. Trump also already made a very smart gesture towards Russia: he promised to release all Russians arrested during Obama admin and held in American jails. There are several people, who were kidnapped in third countries and held on some sort of trumped up charges. Usually Russians really value such gestures of good will.
I plan an additional follow-up video on Trump election. Most importantly, I plan live webinars on what to expect from Trump and the future of the US/West, early next year. During these webinars, participants will be able to ask live questions.
Much more coming your way! Stay tuned!
P.S. Shill attack against my top-rated novel The Earth Shifter
Incidentally, there is a shill attack against my top-rated novel The Earth Shifter on Amazon. My first ever one star review. My books never, not under the worst of circumstances, received any one star reviews. And it’s not a real review, but a mean personal attack against my name! Notice the date: November 7 – right before the US election and right after I published my prediction that Trump would win. They wanted to hit where it hurts.
Considering the book received mostly 5 star reviews ever since it was published, this really smells. Pretty sure this shill didn’t even read The Earth Shifter.
Here’s the LINK. It is on the right side, under ‘best critical reviews.’ The most interesting thing is that it shows up on this page, but when you click on it, it doesn’t come up at all.
Ok, have determined that this person is definitely a shill: The review does not contain ‘verified purchase’ sign, which means he didn’t read my book.
Most importantly and helpfully, every review is supposed to contain a REPORT ABUSE button you can click if you find the review abusive – which I absolutely do for this one! I can’t see this button on my end, since you know, authors have no rights, according to Amazon; we are just supposed to sit and take it on the chin.
But all of you should see the REPORT ABUSE button under this review (please let me know if it doesn’t show up – perhaps Amazon needs to be contacted with a complaint). If enough people click it, then presumably, Amazon will remove such review (just don’t click on any button more than once!).
I appreciate any help and thank you for your continued support!
LADA RAY REPORT
& new Ask Lada episode
Yury Grabovsky (right) at trial, Alexander Alexandrov behind him
(I could, but I deliberately won’t publish a photo of the murderer Nadezhda Savchenko. Don’t want to sally my blog with such filth.)
Below is a video of the young wives of the Russian officers Erofeev and Alexandrov saying how hard it was for them to live through their husbands’ capture and sadistic trial, in which they were denied any semblance of normal defense and were constantly intimidated. But, the women say, they always knew their loved ones wouldn’t be abandoned by the country. As we see from the Grabovsky story, there was a very legitimate reason to fear for the men’s lives, should they remain in Ukraine.
Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the mother and sister of the two slain Russian journalists, who are dead because of Savchenko, asked to release her for humanitarian reasons in order to exchange her for Erofeev and Alexandrov. Peskov said that the request from the two women came in March 2016.
Here is Peskov’s announcement (Russian).
Video of Vladimir Putin meeting with two women, relatives of slain Russian journalists (Marianna Voloshina and Ekaterina Kornelyuk). Putin thanks them for their humanitarian position and hopes that this gesture of good will will help peace in Donbass.

How Russians feel about Savchenko and her pardon
There are many voices saying Russia should have made Savchenko serve the entire term and that pardoning her and sending her back is like announcing an open season for kidnapping or killing Russians in Ukraine and DNR/LNR. Such people think that this would only encourage more crimes by ukro-nazis. There is some logic to that. Others say Savchenko should have been exchanged for as many people as possible, perhaps, for all political prisoners Kiev has in prisons, and then some.
Presently, there are many unhappy people, who do not accept that Savchenko was let go that easily; people are indignant at how she behaved in court and the fact that she made an open mockery of the court, her sentence and crime.
This mockery was parroted and multiplied in Ukraine, EU and Anglo-American countries. Russians are absolutely outraged at how the West behaves in this matter, as well as others (which we will discuss in the following articles).
Many Russians are now convinced USA and NATO want to start nuclear World War III – and US and EU have no one to blame for it but themselves!
THE REAL REASON SAVCHENKO WAS RELEASED
I’ll give you my view of why Savchenko was pardoned and released.
Savchenko = bargaining chip
Firstly, I believe that she was from the start perceived by Russian leadership as a bargaining chip. She was taken prisoner, tried and convicted, while the hysteria in Ukraine and West around her intensified. While unpleasant, I believe that Russians wanted this hysteria to take place, for one purpose: to hype up her value as a bargaining chip.
There were constant screams from Ukraine and West: ‘free Nadezhda Savchenko.’ Savchenko kept announcing her fake ‘dry hunger strikes,’ which no one believed. After a dry hunger strike a person can’t even stand on one’s feet, while she was jumping up and down during trial and screaming out obscenities. Yulia Timoshenko tried to capitalize on Savchenko’s fame by nominating her to Ukraine Rada from her party. While remaining in Russian jail, Savchenko, bypassing any imaginable laws, suddenly became a Rada deputy. I believe Savchenko was also ‘elected’ in absentia to Europarliament (illegally, of course).
It appears the Rada isn’t a zoo enough – Savchenko will definitely enhance its ‘Lord of the Flies’ look. Europarliament is right behind the Ukraine Rada in that.
All the above hype made Savchenko – nothing in real life – a very valuable bargaining chip.
Poroshenko vs Timoshenko
One of the things many overlook is that Poroshenko is mortally afraid of Savchenko returning to Kiev in her present capacity as a perceived victor. With her loud and black mouth, plus no brains to speak of, she may become someone who may damage Poroshenko’s reputation and wreak havoc in the Rada. She may cause havoc in Europarliament, as well.
Poroshenko is afraid that she will be used to rival him. Yulia Timoshenko will do everything to wind her up and set her loose on her rival. Timoshenko is licking her lips at the presidential post, dreaming about unseating Poroshenko. One possibility: she can announce her candidacy together with Savchenko. Considering how stupid and deranged Savchenko is, it’ll be nice to see these spiders in a jar devouring each other.
Basically, they all do what US ambassador, Nuland and Biden say. I described how it all works in ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS. Incidentally, US ambassador Payet, who orchestrated Kiev maidan and 2014 coup together with Nuland, is out, replaced with another colonial ruler. But it’s still the same drill. That said, it’s getting really hard for the US to keep all these spiders in Ukrainian jar under control. Soon, it will prove impossible.
If Savchenko remained in Russian jail
Another thing to keep in mind about Savchenko is that for the duration of her being in a Russian jail she would be creating anti-Russian propaganda ops all around her persona by constantly going on fake hunger strikes and yelling and screaming for Western audiences how she is being mistreated.
Then, there is the issue of her security. It is almost certain that she would have been killed in Russian jail within 1-2 years.
By whom? Either by Ukraine operatives or by CIA, probably working together. Why? Because to them she is a lot more valuable dead than alive. Her dying in Russian jail would be yet another GOLDEN opportunity to vilify Russia and get a new round of sanctions going.
Hermitage Capital, Magnitsky Act and anti-Russian conspiracy
This is not a supposition, but an almost 100% assurance. Do you recall the death in a Russian jail of Sergei Magnitsky? Supposedly, Magnitsky died of a heart attack as a result of not being given proper medical care. However, it is well-known in Russia that a member of medical personnel was bribed (it was an infiltration, actually) not to provide medical care when prisoner needed it, resulting in his death. Magnitsky is presented in the West as a lawyer to Hermitage Capital. This is false: Magnitsky was an accountant, not a lawyer. Here’s why it’s important.
Hermitage Capital was a US/UK investment company that was accused by Russian authorities in money laundering and tax avoidance. Magnitsky was the accountant who was in charge of the cooking of the books.
In reality, Hermitage Capital was the front for subversive conspiracy focused on regime change in Russia. It was curated by MI6 and CIA. The goal was to unseat Putin and sabotage Russian industry, leading to the country’s complete disintegration. The supposed investment company Hermitage worked with a very influential pro-West Russian opposition leader, whom it supplied with money, secret intel and instructions.
In THE EARTH SHIFTER and in ESR3: OLIGARCH WARS I described the high-profile case involving oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his cronies. Khodorkovsky was nailed on charges of money laundering, while the real charge should have been treason. The Hermitage Capital story is another one in the same vein, the difference being that pro-West political oppositioner was used as a pointman, instead of oligarchs.
In OLIGARCH WARS I also mention another oligarch Boris Berezovsky and the failed plot to blame Putin for his sudden death in London. In the Hermitage Capital conspiracy Berezovsky is important. This story is even more convoluted than Khodorkovsky’s. I have the full material on the recently revealed scandal, who blew the whistle and who was implicated. I may have an Earth Shift Report on that soon (stay tuned!).
Long story short, Magnitsky was very dangerous to CIA alive in jail, where he could eventually start talking, but he was very valuable dead. He conveniently and suddenly dies and now we have the Magnitsky Act.
Wikipedia tells us what it is: The Magnitsky Act, formally known as the Russia and Moldova Jackson-Vanik Repeal and Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012, is a bipartisan bill passed by the U.S. Congress and President Obama in November–December 2012, intending to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009.
So, If, by some miracle, Ukraine or CIA didn’t get Savchenko in Russian jail, chances are those who suffered from ukro-nazis, battalion Aidar or as a result of Savchenko’s personal actions, would. Frankly, if I were the president of Russia, I wouldn’t want this kind of high maintenance prisoner on my territory. Try her, give her guilty verdict and maximum sentence and then unleash this furious Trojan Horse on Ukraine to undermine it from within – a much better plan.
If she remained, I’d have fully expected Savchenko to die in Russian prison of some mysterious cause, thus triggering US Congress and Europarliament passing ‘the Savchenko Act.’
When she dies in Kiev, it’ll be their problem. In either event, keeping this hysterical and not very bright ukro-nazi alive and happy will be a very big job. Good luck to them – they’ll need it.
You can watch this video by RT: Villain or hero? The many faces of Nadezhda Savchenko. I think the answer to this question is abundantly clear.
In this specific case, she has been exchanged for two Russians, who’d be in grave danger otherwise. This is already a good outcome.
But there is much more going on behind the scenes, and it’ll never be admitted or advertised…
I have been noticing for a period of time that Western investments into Russia have begun accelerating. Recall that I predicted in 2014 that the West would huff and puff for about 2 years after Crimea: sanctions, anti-Russian hysteria, etc. I said in 2014 that it would be just like the 2008 Georgia/S. Ossetia conflict. After 2 years of hysteria, they would begin remembering that they can’t really do much without Russia, such as various peace negotiations as well as business deals and trade relations.
Although Europe seems to be ready to abandon sanctions, US is really standing in the way, stubbornly attempting to prolong sanctions for as long as possible. Obama’s ego is permanently wounded due to his usually looking like a loser compared to Putin. This wounded little ego is one of the reasons.
Considering Obama’s childish pouting and silly resentment of Russia and Putin, an additional push was needed. I am sure that Savchenko’s pardon was used as a bargaining chip in relaxing anti-Russian sanctions. They will keep those sanctions on for a while, probably till the end of year. This has to do, as I said, with Obama’s wounded ego (what do you expect from such little, tiny man). Obama wants to leave office with sanctions intact. Try to save face, count at least this as his ‘victory’…
But what’s impossible to hide is that suddenly more and more European businesses are investing in Crimea and the flow of new Western investments into Russia is substantially up. This, despite sanctions! There is a definite coincidence between Savchenko’s release and sudden blindness of the EU when their businesses break anti-Russian sanctions. This is not to say that it’s all going to be champagne and roses, but I am certain a deal was struck that sanctions would remain in place in name only.
My opinion: this, at least in part, explains frequent recent mystery visits to Russia by Kerry and Nuland (and Kissinger earlier in the year).
Incidentally, this also likely concerns the Nord Stream-2 construction. I would expect an acceleration of this mega-project between Germany and Russia. After Nord Stream-2 is completed, Ukraine will lose its position as the most important transiter of Russian gas to EU. This will make Ukraine un-interesting to the US as a means of blackmailing and inflicting pain on both Russia and EU. As a result, US will release its grip on Ukraine.
As to the concern that Savchenko may return to direct Ukraine artillery strikes on Donetsk and Lugansk.
That would be really stupid of her, and here’s why. First, her face is now too well-known. Should she be captured again, this time she won’t get out alive – there are too many in Donbass who have a score to settle.
Secondly: she is too famous and ‘valuable’ now. Her card will be played by Timoshenko, who won’t let her go to Donbass, if she can help it. I’m sure others will also try to play her card. She’ll be wined, dined and courted. They’ll try to groom and mold her into something. But I think she is so dim and so stupid that she’ll definitely get herself in trouble within 6-7 months, or better yet, she’ll get the whole Kiev junta in trouble.
In short, a pawn such as Savchenko is very useful as a tool and bargaining chip. She doubles as an unpredictable Trojan Horse.
She’s about to fulfill her purpose. I intend to kick back and watch how Poroshenko and Kiev will manage to keep this loose cannon under control. US will have to work overtime, too. This should be quite a show.

PUTIN & RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS
THE CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RUSSIAN & UKRAINE OLIGARCHS
Russia went through the oligarch infestation and wars in the 1990s. I worked at Smith Barney as financial consultant at the time and I managed some of the Russian oligarch assets; therefore, I am quite familiar with the Russian oligarch class. I described some of the oligarchs and their modus operandi in my two novels, GOLD TRAIN and THE EARTH SHIFTER.
Yeltsin was under the oligarch influence. Being a complete child when it came to economy and finance, he had no idea that the oligarchs, together with their Western handlers, were leading the country into abyss.
Although it is not the focus of this report, it must be noted that many, although not all, Russian oligarchs (and of course, Ukrainian too) served as agents for the Western shadow interests. The name of the Rothschilds is usually mentioned in relation to Khodorkovsky. Some acted on behalf of Western conglomerates, such as Exxon, Shell and others. That said, I strongly suspect that some of the former Russian oligarchs weren’t fronting Western oligarchs at all. In fact, they were direct assets of the CIA, Mossad or MI6. One such example is Jewish-Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, who had Yeltsin’s ear. Throughout the ’90s there was no bigger name and bigger oligarch in Russia than Boris Berezovsky, until Putin got on his case.
After that Beresovsky quickly fled to London. He was an agent of MI6 and CIA, and possibly of Mossad as well. Berezovsky’s story is very remarkable. A couple of years ago, he wrote a secret letter to Putin, begging for pardon and for the possibility of returning back home to Russia. According to many witnesses, in his later years, he missed his homeland terribly, always asking for treats to be brought to him from Russia and greedily listening to the Russian news. The letter was sent with a trusted messenger and Putin got it. Berezovsky could tell a lot of things, including how and by whom the wholesale looting of Russia was organized in the ‘90s. Shortly after, Berezovsky suddenly ‘hung’ himself in his London mansion.
This wasn’t the original story. Originally, the UK authorities were supposed to blame Putin and Russians for Berezovsky’s death, just as it happened a few years prior with ex-KGB Litvinenko. Russian authorities got the wind of what was to come and quickly produced Berezovsky’s letter to Putin, in which he was asking for pardon and return home in exchange for spilling the beans on his handlers. Then, the hastily put together ‘self-hanging’ theory emerged, despite strange bruises on Berezovsky’s neck.
After Putin came to power in 2000, the status quo in Russia changed. It shifted gradually, but Putin let everyone know that he would not allow the wholesale looting of Russia any more. Putin slowly but surely restructured tax laws, making oligarchs and foreign oil interests pay taxes – something that, amazingly, Yeltsin and his sold-out advisors were unable to figure out for 8 years in power!
Those who didn’t want to play ball went to jail, like Khodorkovsky. Others, like Berezovsky, fled the country, taking their assets with them. The Western howling was deafening for years, accusing Russia of the roll-back of democracy and a return to dictatorship. Of course by then I left Smith Barney and generally US corporate world, having understood what was happening and having been disgusted with all that I discovered.
Russian oligarchs were losing power and influence in Russia throughout 2000s. Khodorkovsky was in jail on official charges of money laundering and tax evasion (all true), but in reality, for trying to execute a coup d’état and for attempting to sell the country to the US. (Incidentally, I write about that in THE EARTH SHIFTER; oligarch Konukovksy in the book is modeled after Khodorkovsky). The last oligarch who attempted to obtain the power in the country officially, via presidential elections, was Mikhail Prokhorov in 2012. One of Russia’s richest men, he ran against Putin. Prokhorov got a surprise almost 8%. Putin got almost 64%.
After winning, Putin invited all former presidential candidates who ran against him, aka, leaders of opposition parties, to his Kremlin office and consulted with them on various matters, making sure their voices were heard. This was basically the end of Prokhorov’s political ambitions. I think Prokhorov isn’t dumb. Hopefully, he understood he had no chance against such man.
I usually say that the class of oligarchs ceased to exist in Russia in 2013, but it may have happened as early as 2012, after Prokhorov’s failed bid. Presently, Russia has plenty of rich people and lots of business people. The business class is quite active and there are lots of those who have made their fortunes by building their business from scratch through their own wit and hard work, after the roaring ’90s.
Prokhorov isn’t one of them. He is the owner of Norilsk Nickel, which was the giant Soviet-built enterprise and the world’s largest producer of nickel and palladium. Norilsk Nickel was one of the victims of the ’90s privatization, having been given away literally for free. Prokhorov also owns gold-producing companies. All that he acquired on the cheap during the 1990s wholesale robbery of the country, when prized Soviet properties were sold for pennies. That said, Prokhorov has proven to be a very good manager, and responsible owner. He pays his taxes and conducts his business transparently.
Here is Putin’s plan that is now bearing fruit: oligarchs who acquired their properties that way, but who proved later that they managed them well, cared about their workers, paid taxes, didn’t launder money, conducted honest business and didn’t try to undermine existing authorities, could continue owning what they had, as long as they invested into the country.
I foresee additional change coming soon. Some are proposing a one-time, retroactive tax on assets acquired during the ‘90s for an unfairly low price. These former oligarchs may be required to pay a fee of varying amount.
I like this idea. My advice to Russians to do it this way:
This retroactive tax must be calculated based on a variety of factors, including the fair and prevailing global asset value at the time of purchase, how much the asset has been developed since, how much out-of-pocket money has been invested to develop such asset, and how much more profitable a plant or company may have become. If a person invested a lot of their own money, hired additional employees and expanded the company, they may not owe anything. Many Russian business people expanded and modernized their Soviet inheritance and made it pay.
If they just sat on their acquisition, doing nothing with it and simply milking the original Soviet asset, they should owe a lot, with interest. Some may have to sell their company or give it back to the Russian State, to repay what they owe. I can tell you that this proposed new tax could do wonders for the Russian business class investing in their companies to avoid paying tax, therefore boosting Russian productivity and GDP! I hope this tax is enacted soon.
Oligarch Roman Abramovich, Governor of Chukotka
Roman Abramovich is a great example of how Putin got some of the oligarchs to invest back into the State. Abramovich is one of those who got filthy rich on the unfair ’90s privatization. He was a Berezovsky crony. But later, there was a falling out. Not only that, Abramovich apparently grabbed some of Berezovsky’s assets when the latter fell out of favor, for which Berezovsky sued Abramovich in London court.
One thing Abramovich did much better than Berezovsky was to work with others and achieve a compromise. Putin told him: fine, you can keep your assets, which you manage pretty well, but under one condition. You become the governor of Chukotka. Historically, in Russia wealthy people gave back to the country by serving the State and helping locals.
The Chukotka peninsula is one of the easternmost Russian territories, which has been neglected for the past 25 years. There is no ready access to oil or gas there, with a lot of pristine wilderness. The population is rather small and climate is very harsh, therefore developing infrastructure is very expensive. Consequently, there was no interest in developing it, like for instance, on the nearby Island of Sakhalin.
If you ask me, it’s actually a great idea to preserve some pristine corners of the globe, unspoiled by humans. But locals do demand modern conveniences.
Abramovich had to demonstrate his worth as a governor to earn his ‘pardon,’ so to speak. During his tenure Abramovich invested his own money into building roads, renovating the city and building hospitals, schools and new companies in order to give locals steady employment. There was a situation when Abramovich had to pay regional salaries out of pocket and he had to shell out to fix housing too. Basically, the region was fixed up using his own money. After several years as Chukotka governor, locals started talking about naming one of their streets, or even a town, after Abramovich as a thank you. This was what Putin wanted to hear – Abramovich did a good job; he earned his pardon.
When Medvedev became president, Abramovich appealed to him to be ‘let go.’ Medvedev at first said he was still needed for the second term as governor since he was doing so well, but I think after some consultations with Putin, he did let him go. After that, Abramovich moved to London, preserving his money and the good will of the Russian government.
This is a very good example of how Putin put the oligarchs, their business skills and their money to work for the good of the State and society. He didn’t fight with them, he didn’t take their assets and money away (except for Khodorkovsky and a few others, who committed direct treason). These drastic measures would have been disruptive for the economy and would have created an even bigger backlash against Russia in the West.
Instead, Putin made the oligarchs serve the country they once robbed.
Another example of how he did it was Sochi. Putin compelled practically all biggest Russian oligarchs to invest in the Sochi 2014 Winter Games: from building hotels and sports venues to financing high-speed railroad, trains, new port and train station. This is who paid for a chunk of the $50bln invested. As is well-known, most Olympics don’t pay for themselves since many venues don’t find enough usage after the Olympics are over. If Sochi doesn’t pay for itself, a lot of it will be the former oligarchs’ loss. If it does – good for them, they will make profit.
Ukraine oligarchs are very different. They never invested in anything, just demanding more and more eggs from the golden goose they stole from the people. As a result, they killed that golden goose.
Certainly, in the case of Russia we also have a president who isn’t only intelligent and balanced, but who is also a wise leader of a sovereign country, who cares a lot for the well-being of his people and land. It is no accident that US, France and some other countries, have a movement, “Putin for President.” They want to borrow Putin for their respective countries. It is also no accident that Putin has recently topped the TIME 100 Readers’ Poll, leaving any competition far behind. More here: Vladimir Putin Steals the Show in TIME 100 Readers’ Poll.
Meanwhile, in Ukraine we have a regime that consists of foreign marionettes, bandits and fascists. At best they are incompetent, at worst – simply insane. For the past 24 years, Ukraine has been under oligarch/raider/mafia control. In addition to that, it is now under the control of the violent and greedy fascist gangs. As if all that wasn’t enough, Ukraine is firmly under foreign management.
Tragically, Ukraine has no possibility of resolving any oligarch-related problems under such circumstances. The euro-maidan slogans were ‘away with oligarchs.’ Instead, they got one of the biggest oligarchs of them all – Poroshenko – as their president.
Ukraine oligarchs finally understood that they were also losing from the war with Donbass and standoff with Russia. At least some of the oligarchs, whose assets are threatened and whose power is dwindling, wouldn’t mind the end of war in Donbass. They may be even trying to pressure Poroshenko to keep peace and agree to federalization. Poroshenko may even be interested in that himself.
But there are two other forces in Ukraine: 1. ukro-nazis and their armed battalions that are ready to go to Kiev and start another maidan; 2. US, whose interest is to keep as much turmoil and disorder in Ukraine as possible for as long as possible.
It is a further tragedy of Ukraine that oligarchs themselves have created the monster, inviting and encouraging these dark forces. Karma is a bitch – oligarchs can’t win against those two forces. Therefore, however you look at it, the fights between all factions will continue until… all these ugly and dark forces are booted out of Ukraine by a popular uprising.
The rich Soviet inheritance isn’t the only thing that has ended in Ukraine. For years, the oligarchs and the rest of Ukrainians lived off leaching the Russian transit gas to the EU, which they stole from the pipes. Ukraine also lived better than economically predetermined because of the heavy discount on Russian gas it received for years as another left over vestige of the Soviet system, when Russians often robbed themselves to give to the republics. But all of it ended with the advent of euro-maidan and war on all fronts against Russia. Gas price is up and Russian loans no more. As a result, Ukraine is facing total collapse.
Ukraine in this state can only be unified if there is war. During active war in Donbass the oligarchs all seemed united in their hatred against Donbass and Russia. The shift in priorities occurred once the shaky peace process was established. Russia insisted on peace negotiations because Donbass was in desperate need of reprieve for its citizens. But apart from that, the brilliance of the Russian insistence on peace process was that the moment peace started spiders started devouring each other.
In truth though, the country is so filled with energy of anger, confusion and confrontation that this destructive energy has to be directed against someone. If it’s not directed against Donbass, it has to be directed against other forces. The problem is that with very weak central government and almost non-existed legal system, including inadequate private property protection laws, it becomes extremely destructive.
Oligarchs are used to easy money they stole during the ’90s privatization robbery and through later re-distributions of property. Now, with the dying economy, they are staring into abyss. They are losing assets and their cash flow is catastrophically drying up. Bankruptcy is looming.”

Shortly after, Berezovsky secretly wrote to Putin asking for pardon in exchange for juicy intel against his US/UK bosses. After that, Berezovsky ‘committed suicide’ in his London home. This unlikely verdict was given by London police despite suspicious bruises on his neck.”

Pope Francis and World Religions – Karma and Consciousness
(Ask Lada: Ep1)
‘The above comments just show how confused people are about the catholic religion in general. The celebration of mass is a satanic ritual that celebrates the eating of the body of Christ and drinking of his blood!! The current pope is a Jesuit and they cannot be trusted fullstop. The Roman Catholic Church is full of criminals that raped and abused children without any legal charge for centuries…clergy are literally protected by the state in many countries. Any child who went to a catholic school can attest to the cruelty of the nuns and brothers that taught them a pack of lies and rubbish. The incredible catholic institutions that abused vulnerable children everywhere and the truth of which is only now emerging and again has been kept secret by governments. The whole institution is evil and disempowering of the individual. Now is the time to take back our power and undo the mind control imposed on little children that has stayed with most people for life unless they wake up and start using their brains. I escaped.. I woke up! Religion is the cause of wars literally and it is about time all just understood that we are each parts of the whole and that every little action affects the whole of humanity. Our illusion is a holographic matrix…one of many matrices. President Putin has shown great intelligence in the way he has handled many serious matters recently and I doubt that he will be fooled by a Jesuit pope as he will realise that much of what has persecuted Russia in the past was caused by the Catholic Chuch perpetrated by its Jesuits.’
One of my tweeps tweeted me this pic:
This reminds me of the opening scene of my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER. In it, the Pope drops to his knees in front of a simple Franciscan monk, who happens to be one of the nine Earth Keepers, asking for a blessing as the end of the world nears. Such act by the Holy See completely baffles a Swiss guard, who listens in on the conversation, missing its point entirely. Read this excerpt here, or go to EXCERPTS on top bar for full list.
The important thing to remember is that everything in our 3D world, as in any dimension, is subject to a PERSPECTIVE. The 9D, 10D and 11D beings still have their own perspective. This means that, depending on your point of view, you will see the same events differently from someone who has a different perspective.
Let’s just say, much of the language of global diplomacy and international relations isn’t on the surface. The meeting of the Pope and Putin of which I wrote in Putin’s New Ally: Pope Francis was one such meeting, when many could observe, yet miss its true meaning. Let’s talk about it.
Undeniably, the history of the Catholic Church has many dark pages, and there are plenty of dark pages in the Vatican’s present day reality, as well. When it comes to topics I often address, such as aggressive power grab, looting, rewriting/falsifying history, I could tell you lots of stories. The abuse of children is another such story.
That said, there are many people in the world who genuinely, from their heart, find solace and peace in believing. I think we should respect the feelings of those Catholics whose hearts and minds are pure. Christian mysticism, along with Hebrew (Kabbala) and Muslim (Sufi) mysticism, are manifestations of true religious wisdom, which rises above mundane and above the confines of any religious dogma.
I personally enjoy such wisdom, as well as religious art, architecture and music. All these are high manifestations of religions. Mother Theresa was also a devout Catholic. As anything our 3D human world produces, religions represent the entire spectrum of manifestations: from the highest in spirit to the lowest of the low.
It is a different story that those HUMANS who hold POWER in any religion may misuse this power to suppress truth and successfully cover up their evil HUMAN deeds. The fact that all the abuses of the Catholic Church are coming out now speaks volumes. We are entering the era of truth, discovery and transparency, when old power structures created by MAN for the benefit of the few will fall away, and new, more equitable global structures will be created. This will force – it already does – everyone, including Catholic Church, to abide by new rules and to respect a small person.
It probably helps that I grew up in the Soviet society and in a non-religious family. This provided me with the world of freedom and safeguarded me from any childhood brainwashing. We were free to think, instead of following a dogma, be it religious or any other. The depiction of the Soviet society is completely and maliciously distorted in the West. One of the many legacies of the Soviet Union was, and still is, the most educated and the most thinking people on the planet.
As such, when we all grew up, we could freely choose WHAT to believe in and what, or who, to follow – or not. My sister became a devout Russian Orthodox. But because no one ever made her go to church on Sunday, her devotion comes from her heart.
My cosmic soul is, shall we say, too cosmic for any Earth-bound religion. But I studied shamanism with a lot of pleasure, as it rings true to me (my book THE EARTH SHIFTER is in big part about a Siberian shaman). I also studied wicca and Earth-based religions. I delve deeply into Oriental traditions, and having become Feng Shui Master in Asia, I enjoy Tibetan Buddhism and its beautiful art, spiritual music, rituals and symbolism. My hubby, who has grown up in a non-religious Chinese household, has most affinity with Zen living. Presently, I am studying the ancient Russian Vedic wisdom, which includes the cosmic truth of our origins, forbidden history and linguistics, runas, and much more. Little by little, I will share this knowledge with all in various articles and Earth Shift Reports.
As always, God is within us, and it doesn’t matter if you go to church or not, or if you read the Bible or not. What matters is this: in the final analysis, it’s between you and God.’ Said another way: ‘it’s all between you and your higher self, or your higher conscience.’ In the final analysis we are all ONE.
The clarity of mind that lets one see the world in true light is a must in order to discern and weigh all sides of the issue. I am endlessly grateful to the USSR, the country where I grew up, for many things. One such thing is allowing me as a child to develop freely and grow unencumbered by religious dogma. Perhaps, there was a small amount of Communist brainwashing, as it were. However, it was very minor and incomparable to the damage a Sunday school may have inflicted on fragile children’s psyche. It didn’t affect me; moreover many of my contemporaries think of the old USSR with great nostalgia.
At the same time, I met a lot of people who were traumatized for life by their Sunday school experience, turning rebellious or turning to alternative religions as a desperate knee jerk reaction. I really do feel for them in my heart.
With this background, let me proceed to answering the questions in the comment above.
Much of what Noeline says are true facts and I do agree with her. No, Putin isn’t fooled by anything or anyone.
What has to be remembered is that history of all world’s organized religions is the history of power struggle. It was often a struggle between religions (and various sects inside each religion) for global religious, economic, and geopolitical dominance.
But it was also a very brutal struggle between newer organized religions and old pagan/Earth-based and Vedic lifestyle belief systems. The latter especially applies to Christianity, including both old branches: Catholicism and Orthodoxy. Catholicism brutally eliminated competition, witches and Celtic/Druid priests and priestesses, and Orthodoxy – their competition, Vedic followers. Untold damage was done to the Russian historic records as history was re-written over and over in order to delete mentions of real events and people, substituting them with lies. Same – and worse – was happening all over Europe, which fell under the dominion of Catholicism.
Throughout centuries, this power struggle was consistently violent and blood-thirsty. This applies to Catholicism more than to others, with Judaism and Islam very violent in their own way. If we look deep into history, we’ll find that Greek/Russian Orthodoxy was just as bad; however lately, Orthodoxy became a much more positive and non-destructive force.
If weighed on merit, arguably, Greek/Russian Orthodoxy, which is the older and original branch of Christianity, wasn’t as violent as Catholicism. For instance, there were no witch trials and burnings, although Vedic wise men and women did get prosecuted/eliminated, their ancient wisdom substituted for new religious dogma. Moreover, Vedic traditions and rituals still had a better recognition and co-existed more peacefully with Orthodoxy, while wicca (in part, a Western branch of Vedic wisdom) till recently was entirely denied in the West. Russian Orthodoxy isn’t so much into global dominance either, preferring peaceful cooperative and consultive methods of resolving problems. Overall today, Orthodoxy plays mostly a positive role in society.
Notice that I didn’t include Hinduism and Buddhism in the above list – two other major world religions. Out of these, Hinduism was somewhat repressive to its own people, but wasn’t aggressive or violent outwardly. Compared to the above list, Hinduism is a ‘sweetie.’
A glimpse of forbidden history:
Incidentally, here is a little glimpse of the ancient Vedic wisdom. Many know that there is a Hindi goddess Sarasvati. But did you know that the word ‘sweetie’ and ‘Sarasvati’ have the same root? It’s the Russian word (I also call it Slavyano-Arian): ‘svet.’ Svet means light. The English word ‘sweet’ and Hindi ‘Sara-svat-i’ both originate from svet = light.
Moreover, the Russian word ‘sviatoy’ and its Spanish counterpart ‘santo’, Italian ‘santi’ and English ‘saint’ all come from svet = ‘light.’
By the way, the dreaded nazi word ‘swastika’ comes from the same word ‘svet.’ As some may know, Hitler stole the symbol and word from the Vedic tradition, reversing the energetic plus and minus polarities of its meaning. Originally, ‘svastika,’ aka, ‘kolovrat’ in Russian, signified Sun, and in some other representations, our galaxy.
Speaking of svet. While svet signifies ‘light,’ another meaning is ‘world.’ As in ‘the world full of light,’ that is. There is a well-known Russian expression: beliy svet, which translates literally as the ‘white world,’ although it really means ‘white light,’ aka, the good, enlightened world; world full of love and light.
Much more Vedic linguistic wisdom coming to you in the future Earth Shift Reports. Stay tuned!
Of all world religions, Buddhism is by far the most peaceful, spiritual and positive. In fact, it’s the only organized world religion that NEVER had the acquisition of worldly power as its overriding goal.
As I said, this however was for centuries THE primary goal of the following religions (to various degrees and using different methods): Catholicism, Judaism and Islam.
At the same time, all organized religions also produced true mystics and people of svet = light. This should never be forgotten either! Therefore, it all ultimately boils down to people who are a part of that religion at any given time. It always goes back to individual humans, how they use their power and what their life’s mission is.
Today, religious leaders can often play a positive role, if they choose to. Or at least first do no harm, according to the medical Hippocratic oath.
The reason we cannot just blankly deny any organized religion, whether it’s Catholicism, Islam, Judaism, Orthodoxy, or any other, is very simple: there are billions of people on the planet who do believe and follow these religions. Simply saying to one billion Catholics: ‘well, you are following a satanic cult – get over it…’ I am afraid this won’t work. It’s much better to get in touch with the leader of that religion and tell him, ‘look we can work together on making the Earthly realm we live in, a better place.’ If this leader has conscience, then he can be a force for good to be reckoned with.
I think this is potentially possible with this Pope, who is Argentinian and a friend of the Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who in turn is Putin’s personal friend. I can guarantee that Kirchner had a hand in Putin and the Pope hitting it off. Now, such dialogue was entirely impossible with the previous Pope (sorry, forget his name), who was there for 25 years and who was Polish. By a strange coincidence (not), he also happened to be rabidly russophobic.
As we see, Holy See or not, Vatican or not, it still boils down to individual people and their personal PERSPECTIVE.
Can the Vatican be reformed? Can it change to play a positive and cooperative role in society? Can the Vatican become a force for good? Can Putin change the Catholic world? And should this Pope be given a chance?
Yes, absolutely. That is, if you, me and everyone else on this planet, want to continue this Earthly 3D human experiment. I, for one, am here to help guide humanity towards the continuation of this experiment – with a much better outcome than what we may be facing today.
This means finding common ground with those who are willing to work together to create a more positive, cooperative world.
Religions, like humans, do grow up. Recall yourself when you were a toddler. Were you capricious, causing trouble for your parents? Unless you were angel incarnate like me and never caused any trouble. 😉 Then you were a 5-10-year-old and you wanted to be liked by your parents and obediently did everything they told you to do. Then you became a rebellious teen and caused much more trouble, denying everything your parents taught you. Then, you gradually grew up, becoming more responsible as you aged, acquiring more wisdom (hopefully).
Is our world a holographic matrix? Yes, it is. But as long as we have incarnated in this 3D reality, it is fully real for us. It’s like saying: I won’t study for this test – it’s not real, it’s only on paper. I am sorry, but for as long as you are in school and for as long as you want to graduate, you have to. Unless, you want to repeat the same year over and over. In earth-wide terms this is called karma. Until you’ve fully learned your lesson, you will be repeating this life over and over. Ouch!
You may ask whether there is a possibility of skipping grades and avoiding dealing with karma? Yes, there is. Some of us do skip grades. Only wisdom allows you to skip them. How that works is another topic. But karma is a self-regulating universal mechanism and it knows no exceptions.
Notice that my list of religions didn’t include any of the Vedic, pagan and/or ancient Earth-based belief systems. If we are discussing taking our individual power back, it could well be accomplished through the original Vedic system (vedat’ = ‘to know’ in Russian; ‘vedics’ means ‘wise people, people in tune with the ultimate truth;’ also, note the Hindi Vedas). People are awakening to that, albeit slowly. This, however, is a topic for an absolutely new, separate series, to which I will also get eventually.
Last point to wrap it up:
Noeline says: ‘The celebration of mass is a satanic ritual that celebrates the eating of the body of Christ and drinking of his blood.’
Actually, this ritual is a left-over pagan ritual, adopted by Christianity after it suppressed paganism. It symbolizes partaking of the energy of Christ, imbuing yourself with his spirit. Since Christ symbolizes love and selfless purity, it basically signifies a desire to be like him, hence ascend. However, in 3D, in other words, in our fully manifest PHYSICAL WORLD, humans often can’t simply think or be. they need to manifest everything into 3D; make it touchable, tangible. Evolved souls don’t need that, but most humans do. By the way, there is nothing wrong with that, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone.
In the ancient days in CERTAIN (not all) pagan traditions humans ate the body of a specific animal to imbue themselves with that animal’s power. Humans were also sacrificed to gods. These rituals, which sound awful today, in old days were what the full 3D incarnation demanded. Humans, shall we say, were too literal. They needed to touch, feel and eat everything to partake of the energy they wanted. To this day, in the Middle East they sacrifice animals and often treat humans with outright cruelty.
In subtler and more evolved ancient societies, such as the original Vedic world, humans had representations of various pagan gods and universal forces, such as certain foods, flowers, tree bark, crystals that they ate, rubbed into their skin, created tattoos, with which they decorated their bodies and homes.
In other words, eating of the body of Christ and drinking his blood is a modified pagan ritual to suit Christianity’s agenda. Since we lost connection with the logic of ancient rituals, it may seem bizarre from today’s perspective.
I won’t go into the meaning of the word ‘mass.’ But again, this word comes from the same Vedic Slavyano-Arian source, something forgotten by most humans.
I will briefly say that ‘satan’ comes from the same root I discussed above: ‘svet’ – light. It becomes ‘sat’ here, basically signifying ‘fullness.’ Fullness as in: Mother Earth is full, bountiful. It also has a relation to the sacred feminine connected to Mother Earth.
It was a Vedic word. Recall what I said, Vedics were the biggest enemy and competitor of Christianity. Moreover, the sacred feminine had to be suppressed by the patriarchal Christian society. Therefore, any good Vedic words became bad words in the Christian reality as humans needed to be brainwashed into submission. The same process is happening today in Ukraine and many Western countries, as history yet again gets re-written and energetic polarities get reversed from plus to minus.
However, this time it won’t work.

This post is part of the 70 YEARS OF THE GREAT VICTORY MARATHON
Happy Victory Day!
Today, on May 9th, a massive Victory Parade takes place on Red Square and in other 25 cities all over Russia. See my coverage here: #Victory70 May 9th Red Square and All Russia Victory Day Parades Marathon
These parades are full of well-trained troops and impressive new hardware, as well as historic T-34 tanks from the Great Patriotic War. Also, there is a new tradition, called “The Immortal Regiment.” Overall 12 million people in Russia and beyond took part in the Immortal Regiment marches. This was a sight to behold. A boundless sea of people participated in Moscow, carrying pictures of their relatives who perished in the war. Putin joined, carrying a photo of his father.
While big battles with many casualties, tragedy and loss played out for six difficult years on the fronts of the most devastating war humans have ever known, I want to talk about another war – the war that was invisible to all but a few; the kind of war that dramatically shifted the balance of power on the planet. It was the war that helped ensure Victory Day.
You all know that I love to write spy thrillers. In fact, my thrillers are about spies by accident and out of necessity. GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure) is about American journalist Jade Snow who goes to Moscow to re-discover her deep Russian roots and to get that bomb of a story; instead she finds herself between the rock and the hard place when duty and curiosity draw her to unravel a major conspiracy. THE EARTH SHIFTER, usually called a mystical thriller, has a significant spy thriller component. Sasha’s father Professor Maxim Elfimov happens to also be a master remote viewer and unbeknownst to him, he is husband to a spy. He becomes a spy in order to avenge his wife and protect his daughter, whose destiny is to become the Earth Shifter.
What can I say, I love spies. When I was barely 10, I often found myself inventing spy thriller stories in my head. I also love watching very intelligently made spy movies. Probably the best movies I’ve even seen in this genre were Soviet ones. Today, I want to share two of the best TV mini-series ever made.
Seventeen Moments of Spring (Russian: Семнадцать мгновений весны).
It was filmed at Gorky Film Studio, directed by Tatyana Lioznova and based on the book with the same title by the novelist Yulian Semyonov. The series comprises 12 episodes 70 minutes each. Starring Russian screen legend Vyacheslav Tikhonov. Other leading roles were performed by Leonid Bronevoy, Oleg Tabakov, Yuri Vizbor, Yevgeniy Yevstigneyev, Rostislav Plyatt, Vasily Lanovoy, and Mikhail Zharkovsky.
When the new episode of this film was on, streets got empty as everyone – young and old – were glued to their screens. Crime was generally very low in the USSR, but police reported that during Seventeen Moments of Spring it became non-existent, as even criminals had taken to watching it. The movie made an indelible impression, especially when it first came out. It painted a realistic and profound picture of Germany and Europe during the burning hot Spring 1945. It includes some real documentary footage of WWII battles, as well as Hitler and other historic figures of that time, embedded in the film. Real documents of those days are presented, as well as fictional documents based on real historic events. The film was masterminded in such a way as to seem like a documentary, therefore, it was originally black and white, to coincide with the documentary footage and appear more realistic. A color version was also made.
Historic Fact: As the Russian army approaches Berlin, in March 1945 Soviet leadership finds out that someone in Hitler’s closest inner circle is trying to sign a unilateral surrender with the supposed Soviet ally USA, bypassing USSR, who has done most of the work and suffered by far most casualties in the war against fascism. The secret negotiator for the US was Allen Dulles and negotiations did take place on March 8, 1945 in Switzerland. It becomes clear that many of the Nazi criminals who committed despicable acts on the territory of the USSR and who, according to the allied agreement, are supposed to be tried by the international tribunal, may avoid retribution as they will be quietly whisked away to the USA, while most of the Nazi power structures are kept intact behind the Russians’ backs. The operation was codenamed both Operation Sunrise and Operation Crossword (“Sunrise Crossword” in the film).
Berlin is already being bombed. Soviet leadership contacts the deep cover agent implanted into the Nazi regime since 1920s, who goes by the name Standartenführer SS Otto von Stierlitz, known to only a few in Moscow as Colonel Maxim Isaev. He was probably the highest placed Russian agent in Nazi Germany and Schellenberg’s protegé. Stierlitz must find out who exactly is behind these secret negotiations. As the news get more and more alarming, the Russian agent must also derail unilateral surrender plans. How, that’s the question.
As Stierlitz tries to figure out whether it’s Himmler, Goebbels or Bormann who are attempting to sign the surrender, there are unforseen complications. During US/UK bombing of Berlin, Stierlitz’ radio-criptographer is killed and his pregnant wife, his second radio specialist, is wounded and captured by Gestapo. As he attempts to solve the mystery of who is behind the negotiations, derail American plans and at the same time save his assistant, Stierlitz must find alternative ways of delivering his messages. A multi-layered cat and mouse game begins as he is also being investigated by Gestapo. The plot thickens…
As we know from history, the unilateral surrender never happened, thanks to that Soviet officer whose true name will never be known. Seventeen Moments of Spring is a fictionalized account; names and circumstances have been modified. However, the events described in the film did take place and the unilateral surrender almost became a reality.
I have found this movie on YouTube with English subtitles! Please go to this channel. The video of each episode is divided into seven segments. Scroll down the playlists for earlier episodes as they are in reverse order.
This movie, like most Russian movies, has great songs and music score. Watch clip and listen to the famous song, Somewhere Far Away.
Shield and Sword (Russian: Щит и меч)
Filmed at Mosfilm in 1968, it consists of 4 episodes. Starring Russian screen legends Stanislav Lyubshin as deep cover Russian agent Johann Weiss (aka Alexandr Belov) and Oleg Yankovsky as a spoiled rich brat turned anti-fascist Heinrich Schwarzkopf. Also made in black and white to represent the era.
A modest and helpful auto mechanic Johann Weiss is a so-called Volksdeutsche, or ethnic German living in Riga, Latvia circa 1940. But that’s only his cover. In reality, he is Russian Alexandr Belov. Many Germans living in Latvia are thinking about repatriating to Germany as the smell of the upcoming war is getting stronger. Johann’s best client is wealthy engineer and inventor Schwarzkopf. His son Heinrich is also a client and an unlikely friend, despite the difference in social stature.
Engineer Schwarzkopf is very valuable to both sides. Germans are convincing him to move back to Germany to help out arming and equipping the growing German army. Suddenly, Schwarzkopf Sr. is killed. Johann learns that a day prior engineer received Soviet citizenship and was planning on moving to Moscow. Afraid that the formiddable knowledge and secrets in his head would become Russian property, local leader of German Nazis has ordered him killed; however, aloud he says that it was USSR that took him out because he was planning on moving to Berlin.
Devasted Heinrich decides to move to Berlin and Johann follows. Heinrich’s influential uncle gets Johann a lucrative placement in German intelligence, Abwehr. Johann’s career skyrockets as he proves to be a very helpful and level-headed officer.
Johann (Lyubshin) left, Heinrich (Yankovsky) right
Meanwhile, as Heinrich observes Nazi atrocities, he gets more and more disgusted. He starts doubting the official story of his father’s death. Eventually, Johann’s friends show him proof of his father’s Soviet citizenship and his assassination by Germans. Heinrich becomes double agent now working directly with Johann.
The movie includes a universally beloved song “Where does the Motherland Begin?” as well as others. I wish I could post the song here, but Mosfilm doesn’t allow the embedding of its videos. It’s a very beautiful melody, and lyrics are simply stellar. Here is the video of this song, with a great clip from Shield and Sword, in memory of Oleg Yankovsky (С чего начинается родина – памяти Олега Янковского).
Unfortunately, I could only find Shield and Sword in Russian:
Both films are based on true stories of real Russian spies.

Below are links to a very interesting open letter and testimonials from the descendants of the so-called ‘white Russian emigration.’ They are adding their voice to the chorus of those who expose the hypocrisy of Western MSM and politicians in vilifying Russia and Putin. The original letter is in Russian and French. Many thanks to FuturisTrendcast reader Nemo1024 for the links and English translation.
You can read Nemo’s own English translation of the open letter by following the links below. On his blog, Nemo also provides his own angle to the background to the white emigration. Before you dive into the letter, I want to say a few words of my own by way of a background.
The terms ‘white emigration’ and ‘white movement’ – as opposed to the ‘red movement’ signifying Bolsheviks or communists (with leaders Lenin and later, Stalin) – is used to describe the large and multifaceted forces that fought the Bolsheviks during the 1918-1920 civil war in Russia. These were primarily officers of the Tsar’s army, who wanted to restore the monarchy, various Russian aristocrats, members of the oligarchy and rich industrialist/merchant class, about one half or more of the intelligentsia, including scientists, authors and artists. After the 1917 revolution and especially, after the white movement lost the civil war, most chose to emigrate, hence the term ‘white emigration.’
While I grew up in the USSR, certain members of my family were in the white movement; some of them emigrated after 1918. In my adventure thriller, GOLD TRAIN (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure), I write about the 1918 Civil War and a coup supported by the Western intelligence to unseat the Russian president and restore the monarchy in Russia. In it I describe how some members of the aristocratic Russian emigration, with the help of a Russian oligarch, plot the coup, while other members of Russian aristocracy help to uncover and diffuse it. I also talk about the lost gold reserve of the Russian Empire. As in my other book about Russia, THE EARTH SHIFTER, the theme referring to attempts of the overturn of the Russian government by Western intelligences is prophetic. We have just seen this scenario executed in Ukraine; and we are continuously seeing attempts to accomplish that in Russia, all unsuccessful.
While the book is fiction, it is based on true historic events. The gold reserve of the Russian Empire was stolen from its vaults in the bank of Kazan in August 1918. The members of the white emigration really were, throughout many years, implicated in subversive anti-Russian activities and its members served as spies in the CIA and MI6. There were in the past unsuccessful plots to overturn the Soviet government by the members of the white emigration, financed by the US and UK. At the same time, the character of the American journalist Jade Snow, aka Countess Rosanova, and her grandmother Anastasia Rosanova, are based on those descendants of the Russian royalty, who choose to love and protect Russia and her people despite prevailing trends and tough going.
Moreover, the character of the Russian oligarch Yury Gurevich is based in part on an oligarch I knew personally, as well as on the well-known figure of the recently released from jail oligarch Khodorkovsky, who is again making attempts to promote himself as future ruler of Russia (while living in Switzerland). Finally, the character of the FSB operative Alexei Moguchev, aka Prince Alexei Obolensky, is based in part on my own family history. Alexei is a descendant of someone who could have become part of the white emigration, but chose to stay. Certain characters, such as Duchess Vera Golitsina, are cumulatively based on people I knew in New York.
We all grow up in a specific environment. I grew up in the USSR, but from the age of 20 I traveled all over the world, having lived and visited nearly 30 countries. I lived in the USA for years. All this gave me a very broad, multi-faceted and often acutely insider view of many things in our world.
My life has always been of someone who sees and understands the opposing points of view. I was a middle child, who spoke foreign languages since the age of 5, who trained as comparative linguist and translator, who explained to Russians about America and to Americans about Russia. I always pulled together the seemingly divergent viewpoints and made one side see the point of view of another.
As you see, even my family history is such that it bridges the gap between the white movement and the red movement.
Today, as always, my goal is to provide a balanced, complete picture. A few words to complete the picture:
As will be clear from the letter by the white emigration members, they state that they still reject everything to do with the Soviet Union. It’s a pity. This weakens their letter tremendously, which could have been a very powerful piece otherwise. Don’t reject a part of you – make peace with it. This is the only way forward. For as long as they are stubbornly denying that piece of their country’s history, divisions will persist. United we stand, divided we fall…
It is positive that the understanding of the fallacy of the Western way of confrontation and maligning of Russia has penetrated even the white emigration circles. I see it as huge positive and a harbinger of change.
Incidentally, I agree with Nemo that most of the members of the white emigration love Russia and her culture, however many of them understand love very differently than and average Russian citizen. As I mentioned, during the Soviet past, there were many of them who served as spies and who tried to overturn the government, albeit unsuccessfully. However, I disagree that the white emigration descendants are still treated with suspicion in Russia. In fact, both the Russian government and people have embraced those members of the former Russian royalty who chose to extend a friendly hand. How this works is described, in a fictional way of course, in GOLD TRAIN.
Another couple of things to remember and take with a grain of salt when you read the material in the link:
Many members of the white emigration emigrated to France, but also to the UK and US. Some went to China or Turkey, and from thereon, experiencing great hardship, they proceeded to other countries, many in Europe, but some went as far as South America. Emigration was good to those who managed to smuggle across the border family jewels, Faberge eggs and portraits to sell. It was also good to those rich merchants and shrewd royals/oligarchs who managed to transfer their money abroad ahead of time. However, the majority of the white emigration was destitute and penniless. Former captains, generals, countesses and princes had to serve in Paris as waiters, bouncers, drivers, governesses and dance girls. The inflow of the Russian royalty, who used to be the toast of Winter Palace royal balls, took over Paris and New York, and so did the Russian ballet. In addition to the Russian artists who emigrated, some of the members of the former Russian aristocracy were surprisingly good dancers.
The last thing I want to point out is that both during Soviet times and presently, there has been a lot of literature and film in Russia embracing and speaking candidly, sympathetically and with acceptance about the white movement and emigration. The best examples are the novel by Mikhail Bulgakov (my favorite author) The White Guard and the two films based on his novel: The Days of the Turbins and Flight. Another noteworthy TV series about a Russian aristocrat and white emigration descendant turned Western spy, turned Soviet double agent is Mistake of the Resident, Fate of the Resident and Return of the Resident. All the above are from the Soviet era. One of the newer Russian films that made a splash is My Admiral (Moi Admiral) about one of the main leaders of the white movement, Admiral Kolchak, who’s incidentally connected to the Russian Empire Gold Reserve disappearance story. A great TV mega-series, with mystical elements, about the 19th century Russian aristocracy and commoners alike, including future emperor Alexander, is The Poor Nastya. There are many more.
A famous song (also very sympathetic to the white movement) is Porutchik Golitsin. A historic note: Princes or Dukes Golitsin is one of the very well-known real names of the Russian royalty. In GOLD TRAIN I used several of the best-known real family names of the Russian royalty, including the above. One of the main characters is called Duchess Vera Golitsina.
Rest assured – no one in Russia (at least no one with any sense) holds a grudge against the white movement. Russians at large have accepted everything that happened in their turbulent history and have learned to appreciate all the twists and turns that led them to today. It doesn’t mean they had forgotten what happened and why, and it doesn’t mean that they don’t understand the manipulative forces present in the world today.
It is a very wise position, the one that allows a culture to move forward. My recommendation is that the white emigration people follow suit. My further recommendation is that people in the West do the same. This is the only way to release the heavy karma the West has accumulated. This karma is dragging down all of humanity, not allowing us to move forward.
“Descendants of the White Emigration wrote an open letter against the blatant russophobia in the Western MSM and among the European political leaders.

Dear readers, if you are wondering why I have posted fewer posts than usual in the past 10 days or so, it is because I have had some trouble with my tooth and have been on antibiotics. I have a dental surgery scheduled for 1/21 – please wish me luck!
For now, everything has slowed down, but I will continue writing new posts, so stay tuned. The Earth Shift Reports are coming as promised, but slower than I expected. My new YT videos and interviews have been postponed till February after I can properly speak. As announced, consultations will be available soon and details will be posted soon on LadaRay.info.

Interesting body language during Ukraine peace talks in Minsk (2014). President of Belarus Lukashenko (center left) inviting Putin to proceed, while subconsciously blocking Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine and Katherine Ashton of EU.

This post is part of
EARTH SHIFT REPORT 1 double feature+
From the beginning of the Ukraine crisis, Belarus has been playing a role of a moderator between Ukraine and EU on one side and Russia and Donbass/Novorossia on the other. This culminated in the Minsk accords and ceasefire in E. Ukraine, which admittedly, aren’t being observed very well. But many still believe it’s better than nothing. It is definitely some kind of a start on the way to peace desperately needed by the poor citizens who live under constant threat of bombings. The most important thing Minsk can do is provide a neutral, friendly to both sides, platform in case there is a sudden need in a meeting between warring parties in Ukraine. Play Switzerland, so to speak.
Make no mistake, for little Belarus, this is their star hour. Since 1994, when Lukashenko first became Belarusian president, he’s been labeled the ‘last dictator of Europe’ and tyrant. Belarus has been on and off under sanctions; the beginnings of the newly independent post-Soviet republic were very humble. All this happened because, unlike most, Belarus refused to forget the Soviet past and refused to give up their economy to please the West.
I wrote previously that in the early ’90s, Ukraine was touted by the West as the MOST developed of the USSR’s three Slavic republics (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus) – even more so than Russia. Starting in 1990-91, with its educated population, spectacular agricultural soils and developed tech industry (built by Russia during Soviet times) Ukraine was trumpeted as ‘most likely to succeed’ among all post-Soviet republics.
Western ‘experts,’ with some Russian neo-liberals and oligarchs jumping on the bandwagon, predicted that Russia would turn into a no-man’s land, and slowly disintegrate all by herself. Just goes to show how inept and little-minded Western and neo-liberal Russian ‘experts’ are. Needless to say, none of these ‘predictions’ came true.
For real predictions that actually do come true, read my PREDICTIONS.
At the same time as Ukraine was given prime time, Belarus was either neglected and laughed at in the West, or maligned.
As an aside: it is now crystal clear WHY the West praised Ukraine in the early ’90s, while putting Russia down. The plan was to put as big of a wedge as possible between the two closest people – Russians and Ukrainians, and to make Russians feel inadequate and incapable of resistance in the midst of the wholesale demolition of the Russian economy. Something similar, but accompanied with a civil war, is happening now in Ukraine. Note, the Kiev coup and violent overturn of Yanukovich took place after Yanukovich refused to sign the EU association agreement that would rob Ukraine blind.
The above strategy towards Russia worked for a time, while Yeltsin was in power. But the moment Putin came to power, the tide changed dramatically. I observed Putin since the moment he appeared on world stage in 2000. Unlike American ‘analysts’ and talking heads, I knew from the very first moment that a massive change was about to begin. Putin was very smart to lay low for a while, until he gathered enough allies and strength to start acting, while US elites for 2-3 years labored under a misapprehension that he would be just as easy as Yeltsin.
I wrote about Putin in my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER (character’s name is President Dobrov). I will discuss Putin in detail in the upcoming THE PUTIN ENIGMA Report, which you will find soon at LadaRay.info. Also, a great piece to read is: FREE Earth Shift Report 1: Is Putin Part of NWO?
While the West was concentrating on Russia, Ukraine and other strategic locations, Belarus remained in the shadows. Lukashenko, when he came to power, became that tough leader who managed to keep the country together and provide stability. This allowed Belarusians to slowly build on Soviet platform, developing what we now understand was a rich and profitable inheritance. While Russia was being looted by oligarchs and their Western backers, while Ukraine was also looted by oligarchs, falling at the same time deeper and deeper into its self-inflicted delusion and mass psychosis, Belarus kept its head down and worked very hard. Belarusians are very hard-working, friendly and rather low-key people.
During the Russian Empire days Belarus was one of the poorest territories of Russia. They survived on potatoes alone and were to the 19th century Russia what Ireland was to Western Europe: a tucked away on the western-most outskirts and poor like church rats territory no one was interested in. Perhaps that memory of extreme poverty and obscurity is what made Belarusians both cunning and hard-working. Without any oil, gas, or any other natural resources to speak of, Belarus managed to pull out in much better shape than once much richer neighboring Ukraine, Latvia and Lithuania (latter two – EU members).
Most post-Soviet republics squandered their formidable Soviet inheritance, resulting in decimation of industry, mass exodus of population, and other catastrophes. Ukraine is the best example of that – I write about it here: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.
Next to Belarus, another example of being able to preserve their heritage despite all odds is the unrecognized Pridnestrovie (Transnistria). More about it here: Moldova Explosion Coming 2: Coalition “Moldova’s Choice-Customs Union” and LRL2: Explosion Coming! Moldova/Transnistria – Eurasian Union vs EU.
Despite sanctions and constant fighting with the West, Lukashenko did several pretty brilliant things for his country and people:
1. Unlike most post-Soviet republics, he preserved the Soviet industrial and agricultural inheritance – and built on it.
2. Kept the country stable.
3. Managed to stay friends with Russia.
4. As a result of a special relationship with Russia, Belarus managed to receive the world’s lowest price on Russian gas and very favorable Russian loans.
5. Let’s not forget: Belarus, together with Kazakhstan and Russia is one of the three founding members of Eurasian Union.
Right to left: Putin of Russia, Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan and Lukashenko of Belarus – founding members of Eurasian Union
All the above factors, but especially the cheap, cheap gas paved the way to the so-called ‘Belarusian miracle.’ Belarus pays something to the tune of $165 for its gas, which is about the same as heavily subsidized internal Russian price. Compare that to $350-400+ EU pays. The new price for gas for Ukraine is about $385, however, they don’t pay that either. Such gas price makes Belarusian economy extremely competitive internationally. Obviously, without Russian almost free gas and Russian subsidies Belarusian miracle they are so proud of would have never happened.
The above is an illustration of how Russia robbed herself to subsidize other republics, and some other poor countries, during Soviet times. Some readers asked me how Russia could have disengaged in the ’90s from Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia and other republics, which allowed the US/West to infiltrate them resulting in color revolutions and anti-Russian pro-NATO states on Russian borders. Of course, it was a bad geopolitical decision to disengage. Yet, it can be understood: Russia always paid disproportioned price for supporting others, at her own expense. This made the core Russian population resentful.
Presently, Russia is attempting to balance own interests with the necessity to support allies.
What is Belarusian miracle?
Belarus preserved all of the industrial factories Russia built on its territory during Soviet times. And then, Belarus expanded and modernized them. Today Belarus exports its machinery to over 100 countries; its busses, tractors and heavy trucks are world-known. Belarus is also well-known in the garment industry. They make clothes for export and Belarussian cheap labor (compared to Europe) is often used by Italian designers. They produce much higher quality stuff than China. Traditional Belarusian agriculture also developed well and became quite efficient. Today, Russians go to Belarus to learn agricultural management.
Roads in Belarus – the transit country between Russia and EU – are BETTER than in the EU. The country is incredibly clean everywhere. This is how I remember growing up in the Soviet Union: everything, everywhere was very clean. This heritage Belarus also preserved.
As I mentioned before, there are no oligarchs in Belarus; there are rich people, but fewer than in neighboring countries. At the same time, average citizens feel more protected by the state. Pensioners get decent state pensions and subsidies, feeling secure. Inflation is high, but so far it’s manageable. Utilities and communal (housing/yard maintenance, water, gas, heat) payments are a fraction of what people pay in Russia (where they are not high either), and especially in the EU. All education, including college, is free. Students get paid stipendium for good grades. This is another Soviet heritage that Belarus preserved. Compare that to recent announcement by Ukraine that school pupils after 9th grade will have to pay to attend 10th and 11th grades if they want to complete secondary education.
In the summer of 2014 I visited Belarus. Everything I describe is from personal experiences. Of course there are problems – which country doesn’t have them. But overall, there are undeniable achievements.
Sly fox Lukashenko and international relations
Throughout the years, there were certain disputes and gas price disagreements between Russia and Belarus, as well as attempts by Belarus to capitalize on Ukraine and EU’s pressure on Russia. There were attempts to blackmail Russia due to gas transit. 20% of Russian gas to the EU goes through Belarus. Belarus often plays on Russia-West differences in order to get what they want (like a child of the divorced parents, who would play mom and dad). These games are relatively successful. It’s a balancing act for everyone involved, to be sure.
A reader once asked me about the president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko. My opinion of him hasn’t changed: he is an old sly fox. Lukashenko isn’t stupid; nor is Belarus likely to turn into Ukraine.
Read my article about US lifting sanctions against Cuba: Weakness or Cunning? Why US decided to End 50-Year Standoff with Cuba Now. I said that small and in-between countries can benefit during this era of mega-clashes among the giants, if they are smart. One could make a case for it being manipulative, just like the aforementioned spoiled kid playing divorced parents against each other.
Lukashenko is doing just that. He is using a conflict between Russia and EU/US to cozy up to the West.
Presently, A huge problem with Belarus for Russia is that taking advantage of Russia’s sanctions against the EU agriculture imports, Belarus has become a massive smuggling center. They would bring in tuna or oysters, usually imported from France or Italy, and slap their own labels to re-export that to Russia, trying to pass it as their own product. Considering Belarus doesn’t have a sea…
Other things they re-appropriate and re-export this way are fruits and veggies they never grew, fancy French cheeses they never made, and even things like jeans. While Russia is trying to crack down on Belarusian smuggling, Russia still needs Belarus. So, I don’t see this conflict going very far. Basically, it’s akin to an argument in the family – eventually the family will gather for dinner again, as if nothing happened.
Why does Lukashenko need Western love?
1. Lukashenko desperately needs loans. Belarusian miracle doesn’t come cheap. Belarus is due to pay out $4bln in interest soon.
2. Elections are coming up. Lukashenko always cozies up to the West in such periods to try to prevent a color revolution they always plan around such dates to attempt unseating him. After the elections everything returns back to normal.
3. Lukashenko, being the sly fox that he is, uses any conflict between Russia and the West to get as much preferential treatment from both as possible, while it lasts. There is also the issue of pride and self-importance. Belarus has been customarily passed over for attention. The result is a burning desire to play a bigger role on world stage. Can’t blame them.
4. Belarus is trying to position itself as a moderator and go-in-between transit country between EU and Russia. AND THEY WANT TO CHARGE THROUGH THE NOSE FOR THAT. What else is new? Hence investment in the best roads possible.
5. Opening a joint Ukraine-Belarus TV channel is done for the same purpose: ‘See, how good we are as a moderator and peacemaker.’ It’s a good will demo of sorts. It must be understood that this neutral moderator position of Belarus is equally good for both Ukraine/EU and Russia/Donbass. There must be neutral grounds to discuss matters of war and peace.
My assessment is that the cunning Lukashenko, in his own way, is contributing to pulling back together what in Russia is called ‘the three brotherly nations – Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians.’
Based on the opening of the joint Belarus-Ukraine TV channel and other signs some read as worrying, a reader has asked me if I saw Belarus as turning into another Ukraine.
No, I absolutely do not. While Lukashenko is alive, he won’t let that happen. Belarusian citizens looking at the mess across the border, are very happy they have Lukashenko.
Of course, there are other objective reasons, as described above:
1. Belarusian economy is in an incomparably better shape than Ukrainian. In big part, maidan and Kiev coup took place because of the disastrous, pre-bankruptcy state of Ukraine’s economy and its wholesale looting by local oligarchs and foreign interests.
2. Unlike Ukraine, Belarus doesn’t have oligarchs, therefore, no one internally to finance and sustain a color revolution. Of course, external pressure remains. US and EU still do everything to unseat Lukashenko every time there are elections. Rioters get bussed in from Poland and Lithuania to incite violence. But Belarus KGB (yes, it’s still called KGB – talk about preserving Soviet heritage!) is on top of it.
Incidentally, there is censorship in Belarus.
3. Lukashenko is real leader and he won’t do what Yanukovich did in February. Incidentally, Lukashenko has many times announced how he feels about Yanukovich and his inadequate actions during the Kiev coup. He said publicly that Yanukovich was supposed to stay and fight, that he needed to be more decisive in countering the coup, and that he should have died fighting, like a captain of a ship. As we know, Yanukovich escaped from Ukraine barely alive. By making such statements, Lukashenko isn’t simply expressing his views on Ukraine conflict – in fact, he is letting Belarusians and the West know what he will do should such situation arise in his country. This is basically an announcement that if anyone attempts this scenario in Minsk, they won’t get very far.
After the above assessment of Ukraine deposed leader’s actions, after being buddy-buddy with Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk, Lukashenko still manages to stay friends with Yanukovich and his family, which is a testament to how cunning and shrewd of a diplomat he is.
Many dislike the fact that Belarus isn’t helping Donbass, or that Lukashenko hugs and shakes hands with the Kiev junta leaders. I would say it’s a useful stance even if it seems a bit unsavory. Diplomacy and maneuvering may often seem this way to an outsider. But without reaching a compromise, peace and conflict resolution is rarely possible in our highly polarized world.
In short – no, Belarus has no chance of following Ukraine, although attempts to unseat Lukashenko will continue. Lukashenko, for his part, will continue maneuvering between Russia and the West, Russia and Ukraine.
Belarus is well-positioned in the EAU. That said, of course Belarus will exploit its transit country status and its status of the only country located between Russia and the EU that is capable and willing to be a bona fide go-in-between. Same goes for Ukraine. Belarus will milk for all it’s worth the Ukraine conflict to raise its international status as the country-moderator.
What is EU up to?
The above notwithstanding, I received news that EU is trying to slowly correct the anti-Russian sanctions disaster by going broader. Will that have an effect remains to be seen. There are indications that EU is courting Belarus and Kazakhstan trying to distance them from Russia. If that kind of behavior continues, this won’t bridge any gaps. All it will do is create even more distrust.
EU now attempts to reach out (read: seduce, entice) these other Eurasian Union members. The idea is to get an in with Russia/ or influence Russia through them. It’s a very convoluted and complex game. German VC recently spoke about that proposal. French president Hollande recently paid a surprise visit to Kazakhstan for secret talks with Nazarbayev. On the way back from Kazakhstan, Hollande made a surprise stop in Moscow and met with Putin. Hollande admitted that it was in fact Kazakh President Nazarbayev who encouraged him to stop in Moscow for a chat with the Russian President. The new Belarus – EU warming up also plays into this scenario.
All in all, I can absolutely say that both Lukashenko of Belarus and Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan are solid leaders, and right where they are supposed to be. Their role is to serve as vitally important links and help the Russian leader Putin in the re-formatting of the world system. More about that in future Earth Shift Reports.
Putin and Hollande in France, May 2014
Understandably, EU is trying to find ways of a round-about compromise with Russia. If this is sincere, Russia would welcome that. In my opinion, Russia has to be very careful not to fall into a new trap, if it turns out EU’s real intention is to distance Kazakhstan and Belarus from Russia. Of course this is also happening at the same time as US and UK are escalating the conflict, which isn’t encouraging (I’ll have more about that soon).
In the final analysis, the courting of Kazakhstan and Belarus won’t go very far. EU has to be careful not to burn even more bridges than they already have. I’d be cautiously optimistic about the EU move. It’s high time constructive and reasonable forces prevailed in the EU.
I wanted to end on an optimistic note, but I simply have to add this. Unfortunately, I have come to a conclusion that for as long as Merkel is in power, there will be no meaningful movement towards cooperation and dialogue. After giving Merkel a lot of benefit of the doubt, I have become convinced that she is a secret russophobe. She has been that all her life, but being a politician, she has been hiding it very well. I wrote about my assessment of how she grew up in some of my previous articles.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel
In addition, Merkel has been compromised by NSA surveillance. There is no doubt in my mind that NSA has very damaging dirt on her, therefore pulling her strings as necessary. For these two reasons a meaningful dialogue with the EU will be very difficult for Russia, until the change of guard in Germany.

Earth Karma, Human Consciousness and Dolphins
This new article is a continuation of my earlier post about #dolphin and #whale tragedy and it is in response to the beautiful comment by reader Aeyrie, which is posted below. Thank you, Aeyrie!
Original post: Save #Dolphins and #Whales – Join #opKillingBay #opSeaWorld TweetStorm 12/19/14. Please go to this article to learn more and see how you can help. Please RT, FB, email, share and reblog it!
What you’ll read below will make you think, and questions things; it will reveal who the dolphins really are and why they are here.
Unfortunately, Aeyrie is right about humans and certain dark forces at play. Human consciousness is largely under-evolved compared to so many species out there, dolphins and whales included. Presently there are so many beautiful beings from various worlds and dimensions that incarnate to help in raising human consciousness. The human earthly realm is sequestered and humans have to stay close to the confines of our planet, bound by Earth’s gravity and heavy Karma. Human cruelty and violence worries many in the Universe.
However, Aeyrie, I am afraid the dark forces you talk about aren’t of any mysterious origin. Sadly, very sadly, all this cruelty and unconscious behavior is purely human. Are there dark forces out there? Of course. Dark energy exists in the universe alongside the energy of light, and it serves its own purpose – balance. Like everything, it’s just a tool. It’s up to us to use it for good or evil. Misused, it becomes a hindrance to consciousness development, manifestation, and to life itself.
You can only let the dark energy uninvited into your heart and soul, you can only become susceptible to excessive darkness if you allow the darkness within you to become a dominant force – if you become a slave to your lowly emotions and desires. In my Earth Shift System I call it ‘low calibration.’
If you allow your soul to be corrupted; if you succumb to fear, greed, shame, guilt; if you live your life unconsciously; in other words, if you calibrate below 200 – then you provide an opening for further corruption of your soul, heart and spirit. We, each of us – are masters of our own destiny. I highly recommend that all my readers check out my 2-part video about Calibrations of Human Consciousness:
- ProjectEarthShift 2: Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-affirming/ life-creating calibrations 200-1000)
- ProjectEarthShift 1:Universal Scale of Consciousness (life-diminishing calibrations 0-199)
It doesn’t matter whether this corruption originates from an otherworldly dark entity or from your brother. The point is, corruption will lead to further corruption. On the other hand, personal responsibility, knowledge, truth and wisdom will lead to wholeness (as in: there will be no openings for the dark forces to enter your body, mind and spirit). Wholeness will lead to higher calibration. That will lead you to conscious and enlightened way of life that in turn will rebalance your personal Karma, help lighten up the Earth Karma and will show others the way. In turn, as Earth Karma lightens up, Earth will be able to make a leap into the better future and into the higher density (higher dimension). I talk about that in my mystical thriller THE EARTH SHIFTER.
As I mentioned, I’ll be talking about all these very important and interesting topics in my upcoming interview with the Cat’s Eye On the Future show on the Time Monk Radio. Links to the show will be posted around Tuesday, 12/9/14 on both blogs.
Aeyrie is also right about the fact that despite all this unbelievable cruelty, and sometimes deliberate harm from humans, dolphins still love us and still try to help us every chance they get. I talked about that in my previous article: Save Our Dolphins! Help Stop Mass Dolphin Slaughter in Japan!
Please read this article about the annual #Taiji, Japan, dolphin tragedy. In it you will find a number of eyewitness videos, heart-breaking stories and many, many useful links and suggestions on how to help change this terrible situation.
In the upcoming interview I’ll speak about the heavy Earth Karma and the need to lighten and reverse it. Compassion, kindness, love and conscious living will do this best. Not only that, I like to think that they are contagious. Yes, each and every one of us is personally responsible for our entire planet. More in the upcoming Cat’s Eye on the Future show. Stay tuned!
Also, in the comment section of the original post’s reblog on FuturisTrendcast you’ll find an interesting comment by Patricia Ormsby, who lives in Japan and knows Japanese society first hand: link.
Lada, Sea World San Diego was built in my home town when I was still a young child. When it opened I begged my father to take me there to see the beings I knew even then were my cousins, the Cetaceans. I was a very aware and telepathically gifted child. When I saw via the mental images they conveyed to me some of what Sea World was doing to them, ie: insisting they learn to do demeaning tricks on schedule several times a day, heinously experimenting on them, stealing their children away, forcing them to live in tiny concrete pools they barely had room to swim around in when they were not on show, alone, like a trout in a goldfish bowl, I was horrified.
The facilities of Sea World San Diego, Lada, are located on the edge of Mission Bay. The cruelest cut of all to our dear Cetacean cousins imprisoned there is that the ocean is within their sight. Every single day of their miserable lives they are, literally, within feet of precious freedom and a reunion with their families. Dolphin and Whale kind are smarter than we. How would any of us feel about being so cruelly taunted every day of our existences? When I saw this it so sickened my Heart and grieved my Soul that I never asked to be taken to Sea World again.
Later, as an adult, the first past life I contacted was one in which I was living the life of a Dolphin. I had a family and I was very happy. I loved my sleek and powerful body! The first memory I contacted in that lifetime was the day my wife and baby were threatened by a shark. In a split-second I had the odds calculated and could see what was about to happen. Sleek and powerful as I was I was helpless to change the outcome. They both died in front of my eyes when my wife, who was closest to our baby, turned and furiously attacked the shark. Our whole community was as deeply grieved as I. We did our best to console each other for our mutual loss, and after a time life went on.
Since then I have learned how to call my cousins and speak with them telepathically and I communicate with them regularly. I can tell you with absolute personal certainty that they are fully sentient. They love their homes, families and friends as much as we do. More, actually, because they natively possess a greater degree of consciousness than we currently do. The full spectrum of their awareness is orders of magnitude greater than ours. Collectively, humankind is just beginning the journey back to the level of awareness we once possessed. What we have done to them notwithstanding, they love us very much. Being the Loving Beings they are they continue to help us return to that higher awareness, and go beyond it.
I see that Sea World makes a minimal effort to educate, and while that is commendable, the fact remains that the awesomely sentient Beings they are holding in their facilities do not volunteer for that. They are captured and held as prisoners, treated abominably, driven insane and often brutally killed. All in the name of profit. Miraculously, they are still willing to help us!! They are showing us a beautiful example of the power of Unconditional Love, yes? I, for one, am so grateful.
I suggest that there may be an even darker motive at work here on the part of Sea World and other “scientific”, Navy, fishing and whaling operations. The members of the Cetacean race are so much more than beautiful sea creatures. As briefly described above they are an advanced race who has come here to help us and our beautiful Mother Gaia with attaining and holding higher consciousnesses in the higher densities. They (along with others) are here to help us rejoin our Cosmic Family after our very long domination and exile. That is their mission; that is our mutual destiny. The Cetaceans swim in the Akash. The are Higher Beings who are living repositories of Cosmic, planetary and human wisdom. Yet, they are being methodically captured and destroyed by these corporations! Do you think, as I do, that there might be an underlying, sinister agenda and method to this madness?
We must stop this abomination ASAP. We owe it to them. It is for the greater good of Mother Earth, Human kind, all of Gaia’s other children, and our sister and brother beings throughout the Cosmos. What we do to one we do to all. We are ONE.

SOME HUMANS THINK KILLING AND TORTURING THE PEACEFUL AND EVOLVED BEINGS LIKE DOLPHINS AND WHALES IS FUN!
Last year, I did an expose on the brutal and inhumane annual slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan:
(See more material on Animals and Environment page!)
This year they are doing it again! One of the biggest buyers of captive dolphins and whales is #Seaworld.
For every dolphin captured and sold into slavery in Japan’s Taiji #killingbay SEVEN ARE SLAUGHTERED, often with horrible cruelty! Read my above post for more!
The horrible cruelty and greed of these humans add to the already very heavy KARMA of our planet!
I’ll be talking about karma, how it works and how it can be lightened and reversed in the upcoming interview with the Cat’s Eye On the Future show on the Time Monk Radio. Links will be posted on my blog in a couple of days.
Say NO – make them accountable, make them listen! Join TweetStorm! You can also sign petitions and write to Seaworld, Japan PM, your congressman, as well as various international organizations.
For more read full post of Lada Ray Blog. It includes all the details of the TweetStorm on December 19, as well as links, videos and other material!
Make it count!
Reblogs, Tweets, FB, G+, etc., are appreciated!
Examples of mass slaughter of dolphins and whales are found in Norway, Denmark and S. America (Peru primarily), but not on the same scale. My original ‘Save our dolphins’ article, the link to which you can find above, contains lots of links to petitions to sign, EU and world officials’ info, etc.
However, the above examples are peanuts compared to the biggest offenders – the infamous #Taiji #Japan and #Seaworld. What they do amounts to mass genocide and mass torture, uncomparable to others in scale – that’s why we do tweet storms and petitions, etc. They kill thousands every year! If Taiji is stopped and if Sea World is stopped too, they may have to close down the shop and hopefully we can save the majority of dolphins and whales, or at least many.
Japan’s Taiji dolphin-killing-machine is also known for its especial cruelty. The story someone told me is terrible. One of their practices is (I can hardly write it)… to catch a baby dolphin, cut off one of its fins and throw it back into water. So, when the rest of the family swims to the crying baby, refusing to leave it and trying to protect it, the killers take their sweet time slaughtering them one by one. And as I said, every dolphin sold into slavery to one of these wonderful European aquaria means 7 killed dolphins and countless babies left without mothers, or mutilated, with their fins cut off.
Please help us stop this!
