The Russian Defence Ministry shared new data about the missile that hit the Malaysian Boeing over Donbas. The Ministry declared that its experts determined the number of the missile and tracked its path from the production. All information on this case has been sent to the Netherlands and the Joint Investigation Team.

Urgent! President Of Moldova Dodon’s Car Rammed by Truck! Hours After Abkhazia PM killed! (Open Season on Pro-Russian Leaders?)
I am making this PATREON Urgent Alert public and FREE for all!
This is open season on pro-Russian leaders, people of common sense and truth.
This is the shocking first footage of a truck plowing into Moldovan President Igor Dodon’s motorcade on Sunday. The crash occurred when a truck skidded into oncoming traffic, crashing into two cars from the presidential convoy, reportedly near the town of Straseni.
Igor Dodon (left) talking to Putin
Coincidence of Open Season?
Dodon’s ‘accident’ follows the recent assassination by the pro-US Kiev junta of the Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexandr Zakharchenko (see my several articles on Patreon, and FT). As I wrote on Patreon, Zakharchenko was also the most popular politician in the whole Ukraine, who would have won next year’s presidential elections, should he be allowed to run by Kiev!
But it gets worse! Dodon’s ‘accident’ comes just hours after Gennady Gagulia, the prime minister of Abkhazia, a Russian-backed republic that broke away from Georgia in the 1990s, died in a car crash in a similar way.
Want to know the background?
I had extensive reports on Moldova and Pridnestrovie in the previous years. Search for my articles on Dodon and Moldova here on FT, and look for my original, extensive Moldova/Pridnestrovie video on Lada Ray YT (under Lada Ray Live series) and the whole Moldova/Odessa/Pridnestrovie situation was summarized and long-ranging predictions made in ESR8: BLACK SEA GAMBIT.

“The Ukraine and US Did It, Suspects Arrested” – DNR Army Commander Uncovers Zakharchenko’s Assassins. With Putin’s assessment
JUST POSTED – NEW ON PATREON:
MY HUGE ANNOUNCEMENTS – COMING SOON!
REposted from Lada Ray Earth Shift

All that is known so far is that Alexandr Zakharchenko, the heroic Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, was killed today in the center of Donetsk as a result of terrorist act by Kiev junta. A restaurant blast just a few hundred meters from his home killed Zakharchenko and wounded at least two or three other people: RT video.
ADDED: Just got this first snapshot of the Cafe Separ where Zakharchenko was killed:
The first reports say that it was an extremely strong explosion, heard for kilometers. The cafe caught on fire and is practically destroyed. The place is in the very center of Donetsk, just 400 meters from OSCE headquarters and very close to Zakharchenko’s residence. Incidentally, the sarcastic name of the cafe, Separ, is short for ‘Separatist’ (that’s what Kiev calls the Donbass people). The cafe was called so in defiance. The symbolism of the terrorist act happening inside the Separ Cafe is significant. It’s clearly a message from Kiev.
My deepest and most sincere condolences to Zakharchenko’s family and the people of Donbass. It indeed is a shocking news and huge loss! RIP!
I have done a Quantum Calibrations post on Zakharchenko and DPR/LPR recently. He did show a lot of strain in the past year. Read here: QUANTUM CALIBRATIONS: Breakaway Donbass (DPR/LPR, Leaders & Army) + Geopolitical Predictions & Putin-Trump Summit!
The interim Head of the DPR has been named Viktor Trapeznikov (on the right on this video).
There is a dark celebration taking place in Kiev as we speak, rejoicing at their ‘victory.’
Another bit of sad news: yesterday passed away after a long illness the iconic Soviet/Russian singer and activist, Iosif Kobzon. He was the People’s Artist of the Soviet Union and a Russian and Ukrainian institution, originally from Donbass. Kobzon was known for doing a lot of humanitarian work in Donbass and for being actively anti-ukro-nazi junta. He was banned from entering Ukraine by Poroshenko government.
Iosif Kobzon died at 81. He sang almost until the last day. Listen to Kobzon singing:
Moscow Nights Подмосковные вечера
The Cranes (starts at 0:25) Журавли
Somewhere Far Away (from 17 Moments of Spring). Где то далеко… (Песня о далекой Родине)
Zakharchenko was last seen publicly less than a day ago, laying flowers to the monument to Kobzon in Donetsk, after the artist’s death.
The indecent glee is taking place in Kiev on account of the deaths of Alexandr Zakharchenko and Iosif Kobzon.
Elections are coming to Ukraine soon. Poroshenko, whose rating is below 5%, is desperate. He’ll do anything to get a better showing in the polls, and this terrorist act is one of those things.
Poroshenko also announced that he is annulling the ‘Friendship and Cooperation Agreement’ with Russia, signed in the ’90s by Yeltsin and his then Ukrainian counterpart. This is another populist step to appease the ukro-nazis ahead of elections.
It may seem surreal: Kiev continues branding Russia as ‘aggressor,’ while the ‘Friendship Agreement’ allowing Ukraine trade preferences with Russia is still in existence. Ukraine’s trade with Russia again grew this year, and Russia continues being the No. 1 investor into Ukraine.
ADDED: we now have this first video from the vicinity of the terrorist act that killed Zakharchenko: VIDEO.
I am trying the new format, called URGENT ALERT, as an experimental feature. It’ll be coming out on the need-to basis, when I need to quickly update you on something important that doesn’t warrant a full article, such as breaking news and important news flashes.

Ten years since Georgia attacked South Ossetia and Russia: The Truth about Olympic War 08.08.08 & Russia’s New Army
Wednesday, August 8, 2018, marks exactly a decade since the infamous war of 08.08.08. when Georgian leader Saakashvili, armed by the US and prodded personally by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, shook world politics and ushered in a new era of antagonism between Russia and the West. The lies about that war continue to abound in Georgia and the West. The truth in this video.
The shock of that event created a pre-destined Earth Shifting consequence: it woke up Russia the Great Balancer and forced Russians to re-organize the army to respond to new challenges. In 2008 the Russian army was forced to defend Tskhinval against the much better prepared and US trained/equipped Georgian army. It was not an easy victory by any measure, but within 5 days the Russian peacekeeping mission was over, just short of entering the Georgian capital Tbilisi and deposing Saakashvili.
That event reminded Russians not to trust the West and to always be prepared. Russians never looked back. The Russian army we see today, the army that delivered victory in Syria, and the one from 2008 are two completely very different armies and that difference is staggering. Russian Army is stronger than ever. By trying to provoke Russian through Georgia, the US created a self-fulfilling prophecy.
That 5-day war was also called the ‘Olympic War.’ It was a precursor and in many ways, a warning of what was to come in Ukraine. The reason the Ukraine Maidan and coup in 2014 were orchestrated so deviously was in part due to the fact that after the Georgia war fiasco the US realized it couldn’t weaken Russia head on.

Restoration and rebirth of Crimea, the old Russian domain, neglected during 25+ years of being under Kiev, is underway. This year, Crimeans expect the flow of tourism to increase to six million people. During the first six months, Crimea has already seen 25% more tourists compared to the previous year. The true tourist boom is expected once all the infrastructure facilities are finished, and that’s when one will be able to say that all roads lead to Crimea… through the newly built Crimean Bridge and the new Simferopol terminal.

A Mystery of Russian FM Lavrov & Gen. Gerasimov’s Visit to Merkel, Macron & Netanyahu (+ BRICS Summit & Turkey update)
This is an excerpt from:
Earth Shift Report 23

I wasn’t planning on this surprise installment, since the power duo’s international tour was a complete surprise to everyone. However, this tour is a direct extension and logical follow-up to Helsinki & Putin’s billion-dollar gifts to Trump and the West. As such, it must be addressed.
On July 24 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, together with Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces and first Deputy Defence Minister, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, made an unusual tour of Europe and Israel. They jointly met first with PM Netanyahu in Israel, then with Chancellor Merkel in Germany, followed by President Macron in France.
Gen Gerasimov left, FM Lavrov right
The fact that the tour happened directly after the historic Putin-Trump Summit in Helsinki, and after Putin made what I call his ‘billion-dollar gifts’ to Trump, is especially significant.
All parties to the secret talks are very tight-lipped. The public information is very limited: it is only known for a fact that the topics discussed were Ukraine and Syria. Russian sources also specifically emphasized that Syria was discussed first and foremost, Ukraine being an additional topic. The Ukraine topic centered around Minsk agreements. This is the majority of the direct info about this mystery tour, but I have a few more leaks – read on.
It has been recently confirmed by the Russian Defence Ministry that it never before discussed Minsk Agreements internationally. Also, it’s historically highly unusual for the Russian military to combine efforts with Russian diplomacy.
From the above we can easily make a conclusion that such visit by the Lavrov-Gersaimov tandem is unprecedented, although a symbiosis of Russian military and diplomacy on the international arena has been highly recommended and is very logical.
This is because Lavrov/diplomacy has the channels of communication, while Russian Army holds the real technological and logistical power. If we are talking the sore spots, such as Syria and Ukraine, it makes perfect sense to combine the efforts. Not the least because the military of the West lately doesn’t listen, and often does the opposite of what diplomacy agrees upon. This, for instance, happened previously with Kerry and Pentagon contradicting each other during and after negotiations with Lavrov on Syria.
Another moment that comes to mind: it turns out, the leaders of major Western countries don’t get accurate information from their military and intelligence, and moreover, they are lied to by their ‘allies,’ big and small. Merkel, Macron, EU and US are fed constant lies and manipulative messages by small European countries with their own agenda, such as Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Moldova, Romania, Georgia, and now also Ukraine. Of course, EU/US leaders should be smart enough to be able to tell a manipulative lie, but it’s just too convenient for them to surround Russia with Russophobic neighbors. Therefore, if they are deceived, it is because they are allowing it to happen. But even that has to end at some point, and this point may be now.
It’s a separate discussion, which perhaps we’ll have in the future. Suffice it to say that it wasn’t by accident that Trump recently called the brand spanking new member of NATO, Montenegro (aka, Chernogoria, a splintered off part of Serbia), quote: ‘a small, but vicious country.’ Trump reportedly said it in response to Russophobic president of Montenegro trying to compel NATO/US into an escalation of conflict against Russia. This, per my intel, was intended by Trump as a warning for all other ‘new Europeans.’ It’s just possible that Trump, whose wife is Slovenian, knows a little more about the true history and current situation in Montenegro than a usual American president would (Slovenia is also ex-Yugoslavia and Montenegro’s close neighbor and relative).
Along with others, Ukraine has been lying and deliberately misleading EU/Merkel/Macron and others about the true situation in Donbass. This couldn’t continue forever. The reality check appeared well overdue.
An interesting detail, which has thrown the EU/German MSM into a new bout of hysterics, is that Gen. Gerasimov is under EU sanctions, and is banned from travel to the EU. The very fact of him traveling freely around the EU and meeting with Merkel and Macron confirms what a farce these sanctions are. It also, sadly, confirms how irrational, lost in translation, and powerless the EU ‘leaders’ are. German government explained that since the conversation was about Ukraine and Donbass, such trip was allowed.
MYSTERY REVEALED: WHAT WAS DISCUSSED
Putin and Russians were not kidding at Helsinki. As I revealed to you in previous ESR23 Installment #4, Putin skillfully used the podium of the Helsinki Summit to advertise Russia’s new initiatives and make a public call for action on Ukraine/Donbass and Syria!
UKRAINE: MINSK-2 and DONBASS REFERENDUM
Russian military never discussed Minsk agreements with anyone previously. But Russian Army is the best source of military intelligence and surveillance to help coordinate efforts to stop the war in Donbass. Therefore, the first logical thing to surmise is that if Gerasimov was there in addition to Lavrov, the conversation was about Russian military’s proof of Kiev’s non-compliance with Minsk agreements. Russians have ample proofs that Kiev is slowly taking over villages in the neutral gray zone – in direct non-compliance with Minsk-2.
Nothing Putin-Macron-Merkel have tried with Poroshenko and Kiev worked. It is clear that everyone’s tired of the ‘black hole’ Poroshenko. But Poroshenko just steamrolls over everyone and everything. There appears no way for anyone to reason with him, while, as I mentioned, the intel the West gets for Donbass and Ukraine is either biased or a direct lie.
The fact that there are no more Normandy format meetings that include Poroshenko or Ukraine FM, should speak volumes to Kiev. Putin simply refuses to meet with him, never mind the presence of his babyseaters, Merkel and Macron — and this should tip him off as to his future. But neither Poroshenko nor his Kiev junta cronies seem to get it. It actually appears quite difficult for the junta to digest that yet again Ukraine’s future is being decided outside of Ukraine; and it will continue to be so, until Kiev stops behaving like a prostitute.
As explained in previous ESR23 installments: post-Helsinki, Pompeo and others in the US denied that there was a proposal of the Donbass referendum. This was one of Putin’s gifts to Trump, allowing him to insert himself and USA into Ukraine negotiating process, and to help remold the situation in Ukraine, if he was really serious about changing the status quo.
Russians took USA’s denial to mean that they aren’t interested, and quickly took their Donbass referendum proposal to Merkel and Macron, which takes us back to Minsk agreements. Gerasimov, with maps, numbers and tangible proofs, can demonstrate to Germany/France that Kiev/Poroshenko lie to them, that the Ukraine army takes over the gray zone villages and continues to bomb Donetsk and Lugansk.
The next problem is that Kiev continues threatening to blow up the Crimean Bridge, invade Crimea, start a full-scale war against Russia, and in addition, Ukraine has been harassing and taking hostage Russian fishermen in Azov Sea. After a Crimean shipping vessel was detained and its crew put on trial, Russia had to respond and now all Ukrainian ships and boats coming to and from Azov Sea are being detained and searched.
The issue to ponder for Merkel and Macron is what to do with Poroshenko. This would be beyond the scope of Gerasimov’s and Lavrov’s agenda, but as a result of the visit, I’m sure both leaders of the EU would have to think long and hard what kind of monster they have helped create in Ukraine and what to do with this monster going forward.
The main thing discussed during these mystery meetings would have been the Russian proposal of the Donbass referendum, which is part of Lavrov’s task. And this visit also serves a role of creating a competition between US and EU in terms of Ukraine – a good move on Russia’s part.
RUSSIAN SYRIA REFUGEE PROPOSAL: EU, MERKEL & MACRON BENEFIT GREATLY!
And here’s another huge bonus for everyone involved. The reason Syria and Ukraine were bundled together is this: Russia is proposing a refugee solution for Syria, which benefits the EU greatly, while just maybe EU can do something for Russia. The resettlement back in Syria of Syrian refugees will spectacularly solve the migrant problem in the EU. It is another multi-billion dollar Putin’s gift we have discussed in previous installments.
It appears Merkel and Macron were paying attention to the Putin-Trump Summit. And this is why Lavrov and Gerasimov are there. Gerasimov can demonstrate with secret maps, numbers and tangible proofs the true situation with the liberation of Syria by Syrian and Russian armies (90% of the territory liberated, and the process is accelerating). As mentioned above: it is a fair bet that neither Merkel nor Macron have accurate intel on what’s really going on in Syria.
However, Putin’s refugee return proposal is something they would be very interested in. Something crossed my wires recently: EU/Merkel’s proposal to pay 6,000 euros for each refugee who returns home. It occurs to me that this isn’t a bad way for the Russian Army to make some extra cash.
SYRIA-UKRAINE RECIPROCITY AND COOPERATION SWAP
And here’s the best part: if all goes well, Russia can swap her help with returning Syrian refugees back home, thus alleviating EU migrant crisis, for Merkel/Macron’s cooperation on Ukraine and Donbass.
Of course, we have to be realistic. Merkel and Macron are still parts of the same EU and globalist neoliberal-neocon elites. They still cannot be trusted. They will still get lots of pressure from the Dark State and they are still confined by their outdated ideology.
However, with Trump’s and Earth Shift’s help, they are in dire straits on many fronts. The EU, yet again, confirms my original scenario of the Inverted Collapse. The pressure on both to resolve the EU refugee crisis is tremendous, while Ukraine (as discussed in earlier installments) is a suitcase without a handle they don’t know how to get rid of without losing face.
All this combined makes for a perfect storm, which gives Russia the Great Balancer a great deal of room for maneuver. This is why the Lavrov/Gerasimov tour is a brilliant initiative, and some results will come out of it.
No wonder Poroshenko and his cronies are extremely worried, watching with dated breath what will happen next. I’ll return to Ukraine in my future writings, but it is clear that Poroshenko is considered spent material, and next elections in 2019 may see a big change in Ukraine. Meanwhile, challengers and pretenders, such a Yulia Timoshenko, are out, and trying to recruit supporters in the EU.
HOW DO ISRAEL AND NETANYAHU FIT IN?
Gen. Gerasimov (left), FM Lavrov (center left) and PM Netanyahu (center), with Israel’s FM and Defence Minister (right) — Israel, July 24, 2018
There are more moving parts, such as Israel, Iran, Lebanon and Hezbollah, plus Turkey.
Russian Army has been working hard to keep apart these conflicting forces. The biggest issue is between Iran and Israel in Syria. In ESR20 I explained the whole spread.
In short, this is the close-up of Lavrov/Gerasimov secret talks with Merkel, Macron and Netanyahu. What needs to be stressed is that the Lavrov/Gerasimov’s 3-country/3-leader tour was organized very quickly, as a response to and continuation of the Helsinki Summit. This tour signals practical steps to the implementation of both Syrian and Ukrainian plans. Gen. Gerasimov is a man of action, which means that Russia is trying to steer the West, first US, and now EU, into action. Since both diplomacy and military are involved, plans revolve around complex negotiations, intel and humanitarian missions at the time of war.

Ukraine Maidan: ‘let’s burn everything down, maybe our lives will improve’
Kiev Miadan: ‘peaceful’ ukro-nazi protesters get ready to crush with excavator the huddled together, unarmed police. The ‘peaceful pro-West protesters’ will also burn, beat, torture and shoot those policemen, who’ll happen to be unlucky enough to get in their way. The Ukraine police would become one of the first victims of the violent ukro-nazi Maidan.
Ukraine: ‘no life left’
Odessa May 2 massacre (over 48, by some accounts over 100, people burned alive)
Lisichansk: Donbass war destruction, peaceful homes bombed by Kiev
Lugansk humanitarian disaster: no gas, no light, no water — infrastructure destroyed by Kiev
Meantime, Poroshenko, Kiev junta and MSM continue trying to convince Ukraine’s population and the West that Russia attacked Ukraine and it’s all Putin’s fault.
Ukraine’s new JOKE:
They told us it will be a disaster if Putin comes. Disaster came, but where is Putin?
These graphs and pics show the truth:
Ukraine corruption index: corruption on the rise every year since Maidan
After 4+ years of the regime installed by Maidan, the minimum monthly wage in Ukraine in dollar terms is presently lower than in poorest African and Asian countries.
As the Bandera ukro-nazi greeting goes, now depicted all over Ukraine and repeated by Poroshenko and other officials: ‘Glory to Ukraine, glory to heroes!’
Corruption through the roof, currency collapse, no jobs, country on fire and torn apart by various forces, but if you join the ukro-nazi Svoboda, ‘right sector’ or similar organizations, you’ll be well taken care of.

‘Maidanutaya’, or a ‘pot-head’ – roughly translated as a ‘brainless Maidan supporter,’ with a typical Maidan kitchen pot on her head. It doesn’t matter if you are poor or homeless; in Ukraine all that matters is that you are a proud Ukrainian patriot brainwashed against Russia. If so, you’ve arrived! The only question is where?..
So, the disaster is upon Ukraine, yet Putin is nowhere in sight. But guess who is found all over Kiev and Ukraine…

I’ve told you about this phenomenon in my previous post on the Calibrations of Ukraine. And here’s a confirmation. People in Ukraine watching Russia2018 World Cup and cheering for Russia broke all records. It is especially striking since Kiev junta/Poroshenko announced the ‘boycott’ of the Russian World Cup. Pay attention to the cheering for the Russian team scene in Odessa at 3:20.

Armenia Maidan Paradox: Why New Pro-West Armenia Government Pledged Allegiance to Russia & Eurasian Union?
Jun 14 BY LADA RAY
The new POST-SOVIET SPACE & THE FUTURE OF EURASIAN UNION series continues!
**This series is part of the June PATRON APPRECIATION Month!
Read my flagship post in this new series: PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
Today’s BIG REPORT!
THESE ARE EXTENSIVE EXCERPTS & OVERVIEW!
Eurasian Union Summit May 2018, Russia (second from left: Nikol Pashinyan, new Armenia PM, who was elected not through legitimate elections, but by the ‘street’ as a result of Kiev-Maidan-style protests. Despite that Armenia re-confirmed its interest in Eurasian Union and allegiance to Russia.)
OVERVIEW OF ARMENIA’S VOLATILE SITUATION
Armenia is one of the 5 full members of the Eurasian Union. As a weak country detached from Russia, Armenia is a lucrative and promising playground for Western NGOs and color revolution attempts. Armenia is a very small country, with the official population of 2.9 million. But this data could be exaggerated, as up to 2-3 million Armenians have emigrated and live in Russia alone. Many also live in the US and EU.
But even if we assume there are 2.9 million people residing in Armenia, for such a small population there are upward of 500-700 Western-based NGOs (I’ve heard estimates in thousands). Knowing how NGOs work and how they bribe locals in any given country, just imagine the scope of the pro-West brainwashing in Armenia!
It has to be noted that Russia had a similar infestation of US/UK NGO’s, but it was dealt with by Putin’s government between 2005-2015. However, some of the weak and corrupt post-Soviet space states are very much under siege by Western NGOs to this day. These NGOs buy up elites and the media, and they promise lavish rewards to the young. In Ukraine, we have seen the sad results such situation can lead to.
WHY ARMENIA IS A PRIZE FOR THE WEST
Lately Armenia has been regularly compared to Ukraine. In many ways, the situations in Ukraine and Armenia are similar, but in many ways they are drastically different.
Let’s see how this manifests in practice.
Like Ukraine, after the collapse of the USSR, Armenia gradually lost its compass and started forgetting its direction. The manifestation of its weakness was delayed, much like in Ukraine. For years, Russia continued to carry both Ukraine and Armenia, and that lulled both into complacency as they believed that despite different circumstances they could continue sucking the wealth our of Russia, without giving anything back.
But free lunch was coming to an end, as Russia in the 2000s began demanding responsibility and reciprocity from the former republics. That’s when color revolutions began manifesting in Ukraine (2004 and 2014), Armenia (2015-18) and Moldova (2007), Georgia (2003). There was also a ‘tulip’ color revolution in Kyrgyzstan, as well as unsuccessful attempts in Kazakhstan and Belarus. I described the deep psychological mechanisms of these events in ESR3.
In that respect the Ukraine Maidan and Armenia’s color revolution attempts are similar. But there are differences as well. Ukraine, after all, is a large country, located in the middle of Europe. It borders a number of countries, including several EU states and Russia, thus insuring markets and better cross-border penetration for the population, unable to find jobs inside the country. Ukraine also has access to very good ports in the Odessa region. Overall it inherited probably the best economic and industrial potential of all ex-Soviet republics.
Armenia is very small and landlocked. It borders only 4 countries, at least three of them hostile to it. There is no common border with Russia and no access to ports.
As a weak, poor and in many ways deeply compromised country, Armenia constitutes a lucrative piece for the Western bribery and brainwashing.
But therein also lies a problem for the West.
ARMENIAN MAIDAN ATTEMPTS
The attempts to play anti-Russian card in Armenia were many.
In the past several years Armenia and capital Erevan went through numerous attempts to execute color revolutions, using various false flags and economic hardship as pretexts. One was a violent protest after a serviceman from the Russian base committed a crime (it later transpired he was under the influence of drugs someone with an agenda secretly gave him); another protest, almost resulting in a full Maidan, was engineered around the 15% hike in consumer electricity price. An interesting part of both protests was that they attempted to exploit the anti-Russian card, demanding that Russian base leave Armenia and blaming Russia for the 15% electric bill hike.
The latest attempt, which took place in the spring of 2018, was centered around public discontent of Serzh Sargsyan continuing tenure in top posts. Sargsyan was till recently the president of Armenia, and when his presidential term was over he was immediately appointed prime minister of Armenia.
During the previous ‘Electric Maidan’ of 2015 the government succumbed to the demands of protesters and made a switch from the presidential republic to the parliamentary republic. I will explain later in this article how it happened and why it was significant.
Serzh Sargsyan was considered a voice of the oligarchs. It has to be noted that Armenian oligarchs in their vast majority made their fortunes either in Russia…
WHY RUSSIAN CONNECTION?
There is no conspiracy here at all. By some accounts, up to 1/2 of the Armenian population (could be more, since many aren’t registered) live and work in Russia. Those who left were the most proactive, fastest, shrewdest and most likely to succeed. Many best educated Armenians also left.
It’s important to note that Armenia was one of the most heavily subsidized Soviet republics. It sucked much more resources from Russia than it gave back, thus drastically over-consuming, while Russia severely under-consumed – all this is discussed in my previous post: PUTIN’SDOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
(I am in possession of a very rare and revealing diagram, showing clearly who subsidized whom in the USSR – one day I’ll share it with you!)
SELF-PRESERVATION OR CIA FAILURE? WHAT WENT WRONG WITH ARMENIAN MAIDAN?
And that’s when something very strange began to happen…
The clear and firm signal from the Armenian people was that protests UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES COULD BE ANTI-RUSSIAN. Just the opposite, Armenians went on record to say how important and close Russia was to them. When Ukrainian or Georgian provocateurs appeared in the crowd, attempting to shift the protests towards anti-Russian agenda, they were outed and expelled by self-policing crowds.
A big Armenian PR action began. Every Armenian who went public ardently proclaimed in interviews to the Russian media that Armenia’s situation was completely different from Ukrainian, and they got very offended if Russians called it ‘Armenian Maidan.’
Russians continued to watch silently and sceptically. The secret signal from the Kremlin was that Russia would act according to the new situation. And the new situation could potentially include pulling the plug on the Russian Gyumry base, Russia’s support of the peaceful resolution in Karabakh, as well as economic implications of an unknown scope.
Putin shakes Armenia PM Nikol Pashinyan’s hand in Russia, EAU summit 2018.
As a result, the newly installed by the street, unelected new prime minister Pashinyan, who was supported in his activities by Western NGOs and who just recently proclaimed that Armenia would exit EAU and work on joining EU and NATO, performed a full air flip, making a spectacular 180 degree turnaround. The very first international visit he made was to Russia, to take part in the EAU summit, where he proclaimed his allegiance to Russia and EAU.
ARMENIA’S PRECARIOUS GEOPOLITICAL SITUATION
Landlocked in the southern Caucasus, Armenia has borders only with 4 countries: Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iran and Georgia. It does not share a border with Russia. Out of the 4 countries it borders, Armenia is at odds and doesn’t have diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan (the state of cold war due to Gorny Karabakh conflict) and Turkey (where the genocide of Armenians took place in the beginning of 20th century).
Armenian Empire dreams…
As seen on the map above:
Big parts of the territory in this map presently belong to Turkey (a huge lump of ‘Western Armenia’), and a small part in the north belongs to Georgia, who already lost 1/3 of its territory after Abkhazia and S. Ossetia secession.
Not to mention the eastern-most ‘Armenia’, aka, Nagorno-Karabakh, populated mostly by Armenians, which was during the USSR an autonomous part of nearby Azerbaijan. The secession war against Azerbaijan began in Karabakh as soon as the USSR fell apart, or more precisely, it began even before 1991, but went into its hot phase after. The Karabakh situation can be compared to the Donbass situation.
It is so weak that without Russian military base it likely wouldn’t survive for long as a sovereign country. It can easily be swallowed by the 4 neighbors: Turkey, Iran, Azerbaijan and Georgia.
In this context, Armenia should be grateful forever to Russia for keeping balance in the region. Yet, in the past several years we have seen plenty of anti-Russian attacks.
Here are some pictures:
1. ‘Electric’ Maidan 2015 – due to the 15% hike in electric fees the near coup was executed. Russian business, who I very much suspect has clear Armenian roots, behaved very reasonably and agreed to rescind the hikes, at a financial loss to its bottom line. So did Russian government, who was forced to subsidize Armenian electricity market to avoid Kiev-style Maidan developing. Yet, anti-Russia/anti-Putin slogans were present at the Electric Maidan, actively encouraged by foreign interests.
This is a picture from the 2015 ‘Electric’ Maidan – you’ll recognize the figure of Putin in a compromising position (the sign reads: ‘into Putin’s a*s’):
The sheer signature of the Gyumri false flag points clearly at CIA/US, in conjunction with Armenian anti-Russian ‘revolutionaries’ on CIA/NGO payroll.
3. Below are the 2018 Armenian ‘Velvet revolution’ pics. But no, don’t believe your lying eyes… it certainly wasn’t a typical ‘Maidan color revolution.’
Truth be told, compared to Kiev and Ukraine, the Armenian ‘velvet revolution’ was a lot more peaceful and more controlled.
It ended in a civilized manner, despite certain elements pushing for violence. It failed to achieve its anti-Russian goals.
This is a big victory for Russia the Great Balancer and yet another step towards the Earth Shift!

We will be discussing the Earth Shifting and promising events in Moldova, which are also developing per my predictions! Moldova is much more important than many realize, and it’s not only because of my warm feelings towards it!
There is a lot of important new developments and shifts in Novorossia/Donbass/Ukraine! There is important news from Odessa too! We are very much behind discussing Ukraine-Novorossia. I’ll try to fit all this into my schedule this and/or next week!
This week I’ll also have some announcements!
Next week we’ll also have more Quantum Calibrations of countries/leaders/armies. Which country do you want me to calibrate next?
I coined the term ‘Super-Bully of the World’ several years ago. Now the masks are finally off and the king is fully naked. The US openly threatens its ‘ally’ Germany with a trade war if Germany doesn’t stop the Nord Stream-2 project. The threats began before Merkel’s trip to Sochi where she met with Putin, and they are escalating after her return.
RT videos give you more details:
We had discussed in previous years how crucially important Nord Stream-2 is for all of Europe, and first and foremost, for Germany. And of course it’s very important for Russia. Essentially, now both EU and Russia are held hostage by Ukraine gas pipeline. Nord Stream-2 will completely change this status quo, taking most leverage away from the US for the control of Ukraine and EU.
US wants to continue holding EU and Russia hostage to the whims of the Kiev junta, whom they control. They also want to push their own expensive and dirty fracking gas onto Europe — and never mind that fracking pollutes the American lands!
Most of all, US desperately needs to prevent Germany-Russia alliance from forming, which will eventually be fortified by the mighty China joining it. This ultimate fear of Russia and Germany (and by extension the whole Europe) working together is in large part why the US/globalists orchestrated the Ukraine Maidan and ukro-nazi takeover 2014. This was also in large part the true reason behind WWI and WWII.
I, for my part, hope Germany and EU have enough balls not to cave in to the US pressure this time, like they did so many times before, while hurting their own interests. I think this is the one time when it won’t happen. Make no mistake, the US will continue its threats and 4D hybrid war will continue. I know the EU/Merkel/Germany will try to sit on two chairs at once, as so many countries try to do during EARTH SHIFT. We have discussed how it works in PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK.
But the EARTH SHIFT is still progressing in the right direction, even if it feels a little slow. I will be very happy to see when Eurasia is again re-united in one single cooperative space and Putin’s vision of Eurasian Union from Vladivostok to Lisbon becomes a reality!
Read my complete new article on Patreon: NEW SERIES! PUTIN’S DOCTRINE & EURASIAN UNION SUPER-BLOCK FROM VLADIVOSTOK TO LISBON!
This article is part of the new Eurasian Union Series on Patreon. We are discussing how, despite all the challenges EAU is growing and a number of countries are joining it as either observers or free trade zone partners. The list includes Vietnam, Moldova, Serbia, Israel, Egypt, India and more. We have also discussed Russia, the ‘Empire in Reverse’ and the ‘Inverted Collapse.’ The following posts in the series will address the important and baffling events in the post-Soviet space, Armenia Maidan and Moldova’s Trump.
Notice the very fancy footwork by Merkel in many answers. Trying to sit on 2 chairs at once comes to mind. I actually understand her – her position is shaky and she needs to please opposing points of view at the same time.
What Merkel says in the beginning is a very telling example. Also notice how illusive her answer is to the question about the crackdown on freedom of speech in Ukraine and the arrest of Russian journalist there (the head of RIA Novosti-Ukraine), plus deportation of two other Russian journalists.
This is the first footage from the new fire and explosions at the infamous Balakleya Arms Depot, Kharkov Oblast, Ukraine — May 3, 2018. Balakleya is the largest arms depot in Ukraine:
And this is the previous fire and mass explosions at same Balakleya Arms Depot — March, 2017:
In 2017 the mass explosions that shook the earth were generated by exploding Tochka-U missiles:
The new fire just started, so it’s so far unknown what will explode this time.
This is the video of people fleeing Balakleya, Ukraine in 2017
May 2, 2014 was the day that broke the back of the resistance against Kiev junta all over Eastern and Southern Ukraine, the day that set the clock of history back by years.
On May 2, 2018 we are marking the 4th anniversary of the brutal and horrific massacre of dozens (by some data hundreds) of Odessa citizens by what appeared to be Ukrainian nationalists. However the new evidence and eye witnesses presented in the new documentary tell a story of conspiracy on the highest levels of power. According to Georgian mercenaries, they were hired (together with Ukrainian Nazis) to set fire and leave. These were their strict orders.
The man who hired them was ex-Georgia president Mikhail Saakashvili – a US puppet!
The man who gave orders and orchestrated the entire massacre of Odessans was current Ukraine Rada speaker (Ukraine parliament), Andriy Parubiy!
The man who financed the massacre and paid the hired killers was current president of Ukraine Petr Poroshenko! He is yet another US-installed puppet.
In the documentary you will see Poroshenko being referenced as ‘Porokh.’
This is the first full-size documentary about Odessa tragedy. It is done by a Ukraine-born Israeli journalist. Why Israeli? It is explained that no one with Ukrainian passport would dare tell the truth for fear of being killed. Because she has Israeli passport, she can be safe.
The reason these Georgian mercenaries are speaking out now is because they are fearing for their lives and the only way they know how to keep their miserable selves alive is to go loud and public.
I similar situation occurred just recently with Georgian snipers on Kiev Maidan, who suddenly came out in numbers and admitted that they were shooting both protesters and police on Kiev Maidan and that they worked together with ukro-nazis to shoot both sides in order to escalate the conflict, which is a typical CIA color revolution technique.
Georgian snipers suddenly began disappearing in numbers, and that prompted the remaining ones to come out with the truth, which they told an Italian publication.
Those who ordered them to burn people alive in Odessa on the day that sent millions of people into a state of shock, are now attempting to hide their evil deeds by killing off inconvenient witnesses. It is clear who is removing witnesses – this person is presently occupying the chair of the president of Ukraine.
But as we see, the truth is slowly starting to come out, and this is just the start!
**As a side note, I want to caution that exposing Poroshenko alone is not enough. The Odessa tragedy is one episode in the entire scheme, albeit a prominent one. The Kiev Maidan and what happened in Ukraine is a systemic international conspiracy and thousands of those behind it must be exposed and tried for crimes against humanity. One day it’ll happen!
I exposed the truth about the Odessa Massacre of May 2, 2014 more than once on Futurist Trendcast. To find out all the details see my free FT reports:
