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.

Additionally, check out the comment section for some very good and important comments: “Victory Day – it’s a holiday with tears in our eyes!” This is the song that became the anthem of Victory Day and a symbol of the Great Victory. Lyrics are beautiful! Listen to the song and read English translation here: Nemo1024

Surprise!! Your fame is spreading far and wide!!
Look what I found at The Washington Post:
*********wrote blogger Lada Rey, in all-caps********
A comprehensive guide to the web’s many MH17 conspiracy theories
4. Ukraine shot the plane down to kill Vladimir Putin.
This rumor actually originated with Russia’s state-run Interfax news agency before seeping into the U.S. Per Interfax, Putin’s presidential jet flew the same route as MH17 at almost the same time, and his aircraft was the same size and coloring as the downed plane — leading some to speculate that the crash was an assassination attempt gone very wrong. (“This was a deliberate attempt to shoot down the Russian presidential plane carrying Vladimir Putin one his way from the Latin American visit,” wrote blogger Lada Rey, in all-caps.) But as Russia’s RT, another state-run news outlet, debunked shortly thereafter, Putin’s plane has not flown over Ukraine since the start of conflict there, and he certainly wasn’t flying that flight path Thursday. At the time, Putin was returning to Moscow from Brazil.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WORK!! I truly value each of your articles.
Enjoy the Fame!!
She later added this:
“Lada….I just viewed it as simply throwing disinformation to discredit a **genuine Journalist**, one of the few we still have!!!
Just think Lada, you are now in the Mainstream Media.
Take Good Care, Hugs!!”
I want to thank this reader one more time for a nice mention and for thinking of me so highly! It means a lot. I am not using her name in this post as I am not sure whether she would like that.
Many of you may know how I feel about the American MSM. Certainly, I wouldn’t say ‘no’ should someone in the mainstream press or TV ask me to genuinely, truly speak my mind, and not in the derogatory way as is portrayed in this ‘MSM article.’ The more people hear my true message, the better! Of course, they would also have to spell my name correctly, for start. But I think at least one of these would be a real miracle to hope for.
Many of you also know that my opinion and prediction is that the global alternative and citizen media is what really counts today, and will count even more tomorrow. Consider this: to get my name mentioned in that Washington Post piece, someone had to do a google search, where I must have come on top.
To illustrate this, I want to give you a bit of statistics from my blog.
On July 18, after I published my article: Blatant #FalseFlag: #Ukraine Missile Targeted #Putin’s Plane – Hit Malaysia #MH17 Instead! and when the Washington Post piece came out I had the following stats:
Total visitors: 5,889
search engines: 1,810
What is the real truth blog: 413
A bunch of other smaller ones, and near the bottom…
The following day, after I published Post Scriptum: Strange Coincidences? Moscow Metro Tragedy and Malaysian Airliner MH17 Downing, visits and search engine stats are similar, but some top referrers stats go somewhat down, while clicks from washingtonpost.com jump to 163 (delayed reaction I guess).
Top viewership countries for 7/18: USA (by far), Australia, UK, Netherlands, Malaysia, Canada, Germany, and many more.
Today’s morning top viewership so far: USA, Australia, Canada, Slovakia, UK, Netherlands, Malaysia, Russia, Germany, Japan, S. Africa, France, Romania, Singapore, Poland, etc.
I think this illustrates very well the power of alternative and citizen media in the dissemination of the information.
In conclusion, some important announcements!
1. My interview with The Plane Truth show, which delves into various hidden aspects and powers of the world, will come out in a day or so. Links and video will be posted here, as well as in Interviews. Also check Time Monk Radio YT channel and Lada Ray YouTube channel for more. This interview touches upon my global predictions, and my books, especially THE EARTH SHIFTER, and GOLD TRAIN. We talk about what is the true Feng Shui; the shamanic power animal and soul retrieval practices; Siberian shaman Tengis as the most formidable and fascinating character of The Earth Shifter. We talk about the real Earth Keepers and ETs, as well as what is demons, and other hidden energies. We touch upon the Ray System of Long Cycles, and my predictions based on this system. Don’t miss this fascinating interview!

2. I have received several new awesome reviews for several of my books, including The Earth Shifter, Gold Train and Catharsis (Legend of the Lemurians). Thank you, dear readers! I really appreciate it.
Those interested in understanding my message deeper, as well as enjoying a great read, can purchase my books at Amazon and BN worldwide as very affordable ebooks, and paperbacks. Click on book images on the side bar, or go to Books.
3. Dear readers, the article I promised you all: Is Putin a Part of NWO? will be posted a few days later! In the article I will also talk about what is behind the recent scandal of the Belgian US treasury purchase.
4. A very Special announcement!
I am planning a Special Report that will go much deeper into the phenomenon wrapped in an enigma that we know as “Vladimir Putin.”
I know there is tremendous interest in solving the Putin riddle worldwide, and believe me – it’s for a very good reason. Let’s just say, I solved this riddle. I will talk about it first in the upcoming article: “Is Putin a Part of NWO?”
However, my Special Report will go substantially deeper and will uncover mysteries of a completely different nature.
I will go into history and language mysteries; into striking and profound geopolitical parallels and coincidences; the karmic and mystical depths that few will ever see, or consider. The report will also touch upon prophecies, the issue of the planetary energy, and the destiny and global role of Russia.
This report will be available in three weeks or so, via my new website only. Since I spend a lot of my time and energy (literally and figuratively speaking) sharing my knowledge and information with all for free, this can be your opportunity to contribute and support my work. Therefore, I decided to make this Special Report donation-based.
We are working to make it available for purchase/donation worldwide. In my upcoming interview with The Plane Truth, I give a teaser and a sneak peek into the report that is quite fascinating in itself. As mentioned above, the interview will be available in a day or so.
If you like my message, you will enjoy my books!
If you haven’t checked out my books yet, you can do so by sampling the extensive excerpts I have posted under the new Excerpts tab. Or you can use the drop down Excerpts menu on top. These excerpts are at times charming, at times dramatic and educational. I like to think they are entertaining, too.
My books are international – or inter-dimensional – adventure thrillers, most boasting conspiracy and spy themes, as well as an element of mysticism. Geopolitics and consciousness are important ingredients.
Enjoy your weekend, and enjoy your summer!
I’ll be away for a few days.
