IMPORTANT WRITTEN ADDITION:
This didn’t make it into the podcast, as I found it out after it was recorded.
Re. yet another proof of the devilish role of the US in the Orthodox religious schism. I wrote a full report on it, in which I showed how it became clear that the vast majority of independent Orthodox Churches (there are 15 in total) did not support autocephaly for Ukraine. Please refer back to the report for the full picture.
This new evidence adds another piece to the complete picture. After the announcement by Constantinople Patriarch that Kiev would be granted illegal autocephaly, and after the criticism of this announcement by many independent Orthodox Churches, Bulgarian Patriarch came out with initiative to gather the Global Orthodox Sobor (conference or summit), which would vote on it. The PM of Bulgaria immediately received a call from the US State Dept, telling him to interfere in the affairs of the church (illegally), otherwise US would withdraw all financial support they give to Bulgaria. The Bulgarian PM rushed to the Bulgarian Patriarch and made him withdraw the call for the Global Orthodox Sobor. (This intel came out during this talk show 11/18/18.)
The reason the US feared the Orthodox Sobor so much was that they knew very well the vast majority of the Orthodox Patriarchs would vote against autocephaly for Ukraine and that would mean a major win for Russia. It would consolidate global pro-Russian forces, strengthen Russia and Russian Church, while undermining and greatly weakening the Constantinople (aka, Istanbul) Patriarch, whom they control. It would also weaken the Kiev junta, which they also directly control.
Because all this was easy to predict, the US had to stop any possibility of the Global Sobor gathering.
Generally, the extent of the US meddling in the global Orthodox Church affairs that is presently coming out is absolutely mind-boggling and extremely nauseating. They are now trying to turn the Church into yet another anti-Russian weapon.
Listen to this podcast, where I explain why previously US/West considered Orthodox Church its ally against Russia, what changed dramatically in the past 20+ years and why the US is itching to destroy Orthodox Church now!

Lada’s thoughts on the end of NWO: ‘Serbia and Russia! No EU!’ Mogherini booed in Serbian Parliament
‘Serbia and Russia! No EU!’ Mogherini booed by deputies in Serbian Parliament.
You can’t hear a word she is saying, and that’s how I like her. I wonder how this Rothschild-installed globalist hypocrite felt, for once getting a long-deserved taste of her own medicine.
Just another small confirmation of The Great Earth Shift at work, the breakdown of the old NWO system and the budding of the new. It is also another confirmation of the rebalancing work Russia The Great Balancer is doing, as we speak, on our planet.
I first made prediction that NWO globalism is outdated and that it would soon be finished in the 2014 ESR1: IS PUTIN PART OF NWO?
The great changes happening now are just the beginning! More to follow!
This is the real voice of the people in Serbian Parliament – how Serbs really feel about EU, which is being shoved down their throats in spite of their resistance. Incidentally, the neighboring Montenegro and Macedonia are in the same situation. There is a veritable anti-NATO and anti-EU revolution happening in Montenegro, mass protests have been ongoing since last year. At one point, 10% of the population has been out on streets protesting. Yet no one notices it and the sold-out government continues dragging the country into NATO. Bulgaria is also being forced to stay in NATO and EU, despite people’s sympathies to Russia and aversion to NATO/EU Russophobia.
The people of Serbia are demonstrating how real democracy works, as it should. I wonder why the ‘world’s No.1 defender of democracy’ EU doesn’t like it?
I know exactly why. Because the West is an ardent defender of democracy only when it suits them. But they turn into the worst of dictatorships (or make friends with the worst of dictators) whenever possible. We could go over thousands of historic examples to confirm my words. But why go so far; the newest gruesome proofs are right in front of our very eyes: US support of ISIS terrorists; US/EU (including specifically Mogherini!) support of the fascist ukro-nazi regime in Ukraine. And the latest: EU parliament, in violation of the democratic freedom of speech, votes to strip French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen of her immunity and begin her prosecution in order to sabotage her presidential bid.
Therefore, Western ‘democracy’ is a sham and we are observing its slow death. The truth is out, just like it’s supposed to be during The Great Earth Shift.
I’ll soon have more revelations on the end of EU, French and German elections, what’s happening in Ukraine, Belarus and post-Soviet space. Stay tuned!

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

The negotiations between Russia and Ukraine regarding gas price, mediated by the EU, have failed. Russia set the final deadline for Ukraine’s gas non-payment – this coming Monday. Four other deadlines came and went, while Kiev never expressed any desire to pay even a small portion of its debt. Kiev’s debt to Gazprom is now $4,5 bln. Gazprom said it would accept partial payment of debt as a show of good will. In exchange, it would agree to lower the price of gas to $385 from the market price of $485 – which is what Europe pays. More discounts are possible, should Ukraine continue in good faith. However, Ukraine refused to accept this compromise offer.
Yes, the country is broke, but it just received IMF loan, which Ukraine motivated in part by the desperate need to repay its debt to Russia. So, does it mean Ukraine lied on its IMF application too? Certainly, this is a rhetorical question, as we all know why the IMF loan was really given to Ukraine – basically as a repayment to #Poroshenko, #Yatsenyuk, #Turchinov, #Klitchko and other Western stooges, for maidan, for destroying Ukraine and causing serious trouble for Russia (the more trouble, the more payment = IMF loans). But those naive people in Europe and the US who still think the IMF loan was given to prop up the Ukraine economy, for you this is food for thought!
The failure of the gas negotiations was the absolutely predictable outcome! I had no doubt the negotiations were a farce, and a stalling tactic by Kiev junta and their HQ in Washington. The Ukraine side never intended to reach any agreement with Russia. In the old days this would be called: acting in bad faith. And today, it’s called: fulfilling the boss’s order.
Let’s examine what happened and what it means for the future.
I think it is no secret for anyone who is clear-minded and awake what is really going on in Ukraine. Kiev and most of Ukraine, have been taken over by the forces, which are a combination of the western Ukraine fascists and pro-American stooges that are ready to sell out their own country in exchange for money and power, backed by the US guns. Can’t even say it’s backed by the US money, as the US is actually being quite stingy financially. It appears, US wants better results from the Kiev junta than it was so far able to deliver. Killing a few hundred more people in eastern Ukraine? Destroying even more residential quarters? More phosphorus bombs dropped on own population? But regardless of how much US/EU shell out to Ukraine, all of it will end up in the pockets of Poroshenko, #Kolomoysky and other oligarchs.
It is clear that the EU association agreement Ukraine is ready to sign, will rob the country blind. It is clear that #fracking deals signed by Canada PM #Harper and US reps will damage the prized Ukrainian chernozem soils. Fracking has already began in Ukraine and untold riches from the shale gas extraction have been promised to the Ukrainians the same way they were promised to those in Pennsylvania and Texas, who now have to live with poisoned land and flammable water.
Ukraine also signed a deal with the US and EU to bury nuclear waste on their soil. Ukraine has no necessary expertise nor equipment to do so. But it does have Chernobyl. Out of one Chernobyl, they want to create a hundred Chernobyls by burying nuclear waste without proper precautions. One thing Soviet Union was able to prevent in Chernobyl was ground water contamination. Burying of nuclear waste in Ukraine without proper technology will contaminate the water table. And this water table is connected to Russia, Europe and even parts of the Middle East via the Black Sea. It is clear that the EU and US do not care what becomes of Ukrainian land and people, when it’s turned into nuclear / fracking wasteland. It seems they don’t care even about their own people…
It’s also clear that the present rulers of Ukraine don’t care about their population even a bit. Otherwise, they would not be bombing eastern Ukraine with banned white phosphorus. See my previous article about that.
And then, there is Russian gas…
Because of how the economy was designed during USSR, most pipelines transporting Russian gas to Europe were built through Ukraine. In part, it was so Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic’s economy didn’t depend on Russia’s help as much. Gas pipeline provided large employment for locals, and Ukraine also made substantial transit fees. Today, Ukraine still makes transit fees from Russia, while the pipeline was built during Soviet days by Russians and while gas running through it is Russian. By the way, Ukraine recently increased transit fees for Russian gas. This sharing of the wealth, which was a common Soviet ideology, and of which I spoke in one of my previous writings, has really backfired on Russia once the colored revolutionaries #Yushchenko, #Tymoshenko and #Poroshenko came to power in 2004.
Between 2004 and 2010, under Yushchenko and Tymoshenko, Ukraine refused to pay for gas on several occasions, while using Russian gas for free for months at a time. As a result, on two occasions, Russia shut off gas to Ukraine. In response, Ukraine started stealing gas designated for Europe. The theft was so substantial that Gazprom started suffering serious losses. At that point, Russia had no choice but to stop the flow of gas to Europe, which created a stellar opportunity for the West to vilify Russia. Let me say it again: when Russia complained to the EU that Ukraine was stealing gas flowing to Europe, Europe said, “it’s your problem, and has nothing to do with us.” When Russia had to stop gas flow in oreder to contain business losses, EU said, “bad Russia, you are blackmailing us and poor Ukraine with your gas.”
The Western MSM and politicians are pounding into everyone’s heads that Russia uses its gas as a geopolitical weapon. As if getting paid for her goods and services is something Russia has no right to.
These instances also created an amazing opportunity to brainwash the citizens of Ukraine. And US, EU, Western #NGOs, and #Soros pounced. Ukraine authorities, along with Western sponsored and financed NGOs, were yelling day and night that Russia wants to strangle Ukraine by shutting off gas and letting people freeze to death in the middle of a winter – therefore, Russia is Ukraine’s enemy. I have no excuses for those in Ukraine who let themselves be brainwashed with this lie. This kind of brainwashing was only possible for those who wanted to be brainwashed or for those who sold out.
What was clear to me in 1995, 2004, 2007, 2010 and today is this: There never was an independent Ukraine. Moreover, there never was an honest government in Ukraine that cared for the well-being of its people. Back in 2007 and 2010, Yushchenko, Tymoshenko, Poroshenko were acting on orders from their bosses in Washington.
Fast-forward to today! Note Kiev’s incongruously stuck-up and unbending position in gas price negotiation with Russia. This is yet another demonstration of the same. Kiev owes Russia $4.5bln for unpaid gas, which Russia has been supplying for free since last year; Ukraine is facing the gas supply shut-down, which Russia warned about for months. Yet Kiev is dictating to Russia what price they want to pay for Russian gas and on which conditions they will, or won’t, start paying?
Russia is asking for a partial repayment so the gas keeps flowing. Otherwise, Ukraine will be put on strict prepayment schedule, meaning that Ukraine will only receive gas they already paid for – which at this point is none. Ukraine says, no, this won’t work for us – give us the discount Belarus is getting (the country which is part of Customs Union, therefore entitled to the insider price), and then MAYBE we’ll repay you part of our debt. Even Europeans seem to be shocked at this audacity.
The only possible reason Yatsenyuk, Poroshenko, and Co. would be so arrogant and audacious is because they have received direct assurances from the US that it will be behind them 100%. The infamous #neocon Victoria #Nuland just visited Kiev. She didn’t bring any burgers and cookies for maidan this time, but she brought something else – direct orders.
The goals of Nuland’s visit were as follows:
1. To give orders to use phosphorus bombs in eastern Ukraine. Read Lada Ray’s Warning: Phosphorus Bombing of Slavyansk and Ukraine APCs Breach Russian Border
2. To give the green light to the Russian border provocation via Ukraine APCs. See the same article. Also read related: Ukraine Part 6. Striking Geopolitical Similarities: Georgian War – Beijing2008 and Ukraine – Sochi2014. and Predictions page.
3. To sabotage gas price negotiations at any cost, which in the end will hurt both Russia and EU! Watch report: Gazprom sets last gas payment deadline for Ukraine.
Ukraine PM #Yatsenyuk gave order to all his underlings to prepare for the gas shut-off on Monday – the last deadline given by Russia for past due payment (4 deadlines have already gone by). Yatsenyuk and Poroshenko would rather have the entire country be without gas than agree on something reasonable with Russia.
Here is why.
1. They received a direct order from the Washington HQ to destabilize Russia and Europe, and to drive a wedge between them.
2. They desperately need to paint Russia as a villain who turned off the gas to the poor Ukrainian citizens, so later they can say that Russia is to blame for the economic collapse of the Ukraine. In reality, the collapse has been underway for the past 23 years. When Ukraine became “independent,” its economy was grossly mismanaged. The majority of assets were routinely siphoned off by oligarchs. That includes Poroshenko, #Yanukovich, Kolomoysky, Tymoshenko, #Avakov, #Akmetov, among others. Per reports, the newly elected president of Ukraine Poroshenko’s wealth just a year prior was estimated at $600mln. After the 2014 Kiev maidan and Yanukovich’s ousting (who was yet another oligarch and mafia boss), Poroshenko’s wealth all of sudden jumped to $1.3bln. It is understood that he, along with his cronies, such as Kolomoysky (the original mafia boss), Avakov, and others have taken over the assets of the “Yanukovich family.” In addition, part of the $5bln that Victoria Nuland so loves to brag about that the US spent on “subverting Ukraine” has ended up in the oligarchs’ pockets. There were payments in addition to that: some alternative media sources have talked about multi-million payments by the West to the Ukraine stooges after maidan. You can google this info, or find it on YT.
Predictions: #Russia, #Gazprom #gaswar, #US motivations in #Ukraine
I discussed in my previous articles that within several years, Russia will deliver most gas it sells to Europe bypassing Ukraine. It will also deliver the majority of its gas to #China, thus taking away the blackmailing leverage from Ukraine.
USA is 100% aligned with the Kiev government (who are on their payroll anyway): anything to paint Russia as the villain will do. And of course no one either in Ukraine or US cares how all these attempts to weaken and vilify Russia will impact Ukraine’s ordinary citizens – and the impact will be catastrophic! Kiev junta doesn’t care about that, as long as they get to blame Russia, thus shifting the blame and people’s wrath away from themselves when Ukraine economy collapses totally and completely – and this will happen soon. With their crazy actions, Kiev is expediting the country’s downfall.
I explained all this further in PREDICTIONS, where I also said that Ukraine will eventually turn away from the West, and will want to join the Eurasian Union. But unfortunately it will only happen AFTER Ukraine economy is completely ruined. Russia will have to pick up the pieces and the tab to re-build Ukraine’s economy.
The main USA’s goal in Ukraine is to turn it into an area of permanent instability on Russian borders. Ruining of Ukraine is part of the plan. It is possible that those who masterminded this whole mayhem in Washington and #CIA may even realize that they won’t be able to hold on to Ukraine for long. Ukraine, like an over-stretched rubber band, will snap back to a better equilibrium with Russia. Another way of saying this is: the Ukraine pendulum has swung too far in the direction of deception, lies and the West; it is bound to swing back to Russia within 2-4 years. But when it does, Washington wants it to end up in as bad of a condition as possible. Hence fracking, nuclear waste disposal, gas deal sabotage, and bombings of eastern Ukraine.
Further, USA is desperate to hurt not only Russia’s and #Putin’s reputation and prestige, but also Russian economy! This is extremely important to understand. They are simply dying to derail Russian economy. This is not new and the playbook has not changed for years. I talked about how it was done during the early years of the USSR in: The Real Truth About USSR: Golodomor and Collectivization in Ukraine.
Although many in the West still have blinders when the words USSR, collectivization, Stalin, etc., are mentioned, I do recommend you read this article, as well as the comment section, with an open mind. It may seriously enrich your understanding of what really went on in the 20th century. I have added my own family history and recollections, which shed additional light on many things. I think this is perhaps the most valuable part of the article from which a lot can be learned. My job is to offer the truth – the rest is up to you!
Last, but not least, USA’s big goal is to weaken its competitor, the EU, and to drive a deep wedge of distrust between Russia and EU.
Look at the chain of events that already happened twice before, and which are about to happen again! Ukraine doesn’t pay for gas. Russia has no choice but to switch to pre-payment schedule, and doesn’t supply gas Ukraine hasn’t paid for. Ukraine starts stealing EU transit gas. EU doesn’t get enough gas to keep its large, gas dependent economy running. At some point Russia has no choice than to shut-down gas to Europe to minimize losses and keep Ukraine from stealing European gas. EU crisis deepens as large companies start suffering losses, as plants stop and as individual consumers can’t cook or heat their houses, which is especially worrisome in winter. Western MSM and politicians, as well as Kiev, start yelling that Russia is blackmailing Europe, using its gas as a weapon, therefore Russia and Putin are villains. Next, the kind fracking companies from USA and Canada offer fracking contracts to EU to save them from bad Russia. Read: Why Is Canada’s PM Harper in a Rush to Visit Ukraine?
Mission accomplished: people brainwashed and confused, EU/Ukraine/Russian economies sabotaged, Russia vilified, Putin hated, Ukraine and EU fracked into oblivion, US/Canada make billions, US empire collapse postponed.
A time-tested divide-and-conquer strategy of the US empire – the legal heir to the British empire!

This is a short, to the point piece from AMTV’s Christopher Greene: UKRAINE: USA Will Lose World War 3. AMTV is Alternative Media TV. Like myself, Chris used to work in finance and quit when he saw the lies of Wall Street and Washington.
As my readers know, my prediction is that there will be no WWIII as conventionally understood. There will be, actually is already happening, something different. Read Predictions Page for more.
However, Chris has all his facts about Ukraine straight and his analysis/conclusion about the waning US power is spot on. I also really like the fact that Chris is calling on all Americans and Europeans to consider what they are doing in Ukraine, why their governments are interfering there and what any US/EU soldiers that may be in Ukraine are fighting for. It is great to see that some Americans, like Chris, are fully awake and aware of what their government is doing, and are working hard to enlighten others. This means that not all hope is lost.

For the past week, Western media and Social Media is all over the “news” purporting the pro-Russian Donetsk Republic in Eastern Ukraine has been circulating a letter to Jews mandating them to register. This item was pompously cited by the US Secretary of State John #Kerry in Geneva, where he tried very hard to prove to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey #Lavrov that Eastern Ukraine protestors were in fact “nazis.” Read the rest of this entry
In addition to the above, the US interests are licking their lips at the prospect of #fracking up the entire country to get to Ukraine’s #shale gas. I discussed this issue before, explaining how foolish Ukraine would be to allow that. The prized Ukrainian black soils, #chernozem, would then become unusable, further destroying the already mismanaged Ukrainian agriculture and economy. Read Why Is Canada’s PM Harper in a Rush to Visit Ukraine? The illegitimate Kiev junta, as it is called in Ukraine, is ready to sell out Ukraine wholesale. It’s never talked about, however, one of the reasons for the protests in Eastern Ukraine is that the citizens don’t want fracking done on their land.
Below is another excellent interview with Jim Willie of the Golden Jackass by our friends at The Plane Truth radio.
First, a few of my thoughts:
Jim Willie is discussing how the West is trying to attack the Russian Gazprom. Gazprom is a major player in the world economy. It is one of the world’s largest companies. Russia owns at least 30% of the world’s gas. Another issue raised in this interview concerns the Russian gold and what was really behind the Cyprus debacle last year, how it was related to Russia and Russian financial interests. What is Europe’s role. Russian gas pipelines and Syria. And finally, how’s Ukraine related to all this. Read the rest of this entry
This is one of the hoaxes actively circulated by the Western media, or as Gerald #Celente calls them, “presstitutes.” Note, I do not read or watch the Western #presstitutes. Ever since I started living in the West, I had the unfortune of hearing so much of the deliberate anti-Russian lies – and very, very little, if any TRUTH – that a long time ago I turned off my cable and unsubscribed from all US newspapers and magazines. It was really for the reasons of self-preservation. You see, I didn’t want to vomit every time I watched a presstitutes’ newscast.
I was alerted to this piece from the UK’s Telegraph by the Tales From the World blog.
