In late December 2016 US, still under Obama, suddenly announced seizure of Russian diplomatic properties and expulsion of 35 Russian diplomatic staff, together with families. People with school children were given less than 48 hours to clear out of the country, in violation of any and all human rights, and right before New Year’s and Christmas.
At that time, Russia did nothing, awaiting Trump’s presidency and hoping he would conduct a more sane policy.
There was a PROMISE made by Trump — and therefore an expectation by the Russian side — that US would return illegally expropriated Russian diplomatic properties. This promise was supposed to materialize during or after the long-anticipated meeting between Putin and Trump during G20 in Hamburg, Germany. Nothing transpired and Trump together with Tillerson dodged all Russian inquiries.
Vladimir Putin meets Donald Trump at G20 in Hamburg, Germany
After waiting for any progress till the end of July, Russia announced that US diplomatic staff in the country was being reduced by 755 people, to maintain parity with the number of Russian diplomatic staff in the US. The reduction comes into effect as of September 1. The number of US staff remaining in Russia is to stay at 455, which would be on par with the number of Russian diplomats in the US.
As is apparent from the blown out of proportion numbers of US diplomatic staff, said ‘staff’ was very hard at work trying to orchestrate a Kiev-style Maidan and color revolution in Russia, in time for Russian presidential elections in March 2018.
A warehouse on the outskirts of Moscow and a dinky US dacha near Moscow were also ordered to be vacated. To be sure, the little dacha / summer cabin in the woods near Moscow does not come close to the Russian diplomatic resort property expropriated by the US. Russia bought that resort in 1970s and paid $1.2 mln at the time. Therefore, Russian private property was illegally expropriated by the US. Meanwhile, the dacha property near Moscow was GIVEN to the US diplomats as a diplomatic gesture.
Another thing that is striking is that Russian authorities gave American diplomats and their families a full month to wrap up their affairs and move out of the country. If any of them had school children, they were hardly affected as it was in the summer, and enough time was given to find new schools for the kids. Let’s recall that USA simply THREW OUT Russian families from the country, not even giving them enough time to pack, and it happened in the middle of a school year!
But that was only the beginning of this new diplomatic 4D war. As many around the globe have noticed, there is no difference whether it’s Bush, Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama, or Trump. US is only happy when it creates conflict and wars all over the globe. They are too afraid to attack Russia directly. In fact, as I’d predicted since 2014, they’ll NEVER DARE. But they find ways to do it insidiously and clandestinely, escalating conflict in every way they can. This is the nature of the beast…
Where are all of Trump’s campaign promises, such as pulling out of Afghanistan and Iraq, improving relations with Russia, making a peaceful effort in Syria? Instead we see Trump and the crazies around him escalating N. Korean crisis, getting into fights with China, sending more troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, interfering in Syria, Picking fights with Iran, promising lethal weapons to the fascist Kiev junta in order to attack the people of Donbass and provoke Russia, and as a cherry on the cake — new escalation of diplomatic conflict with Russia.
Recently US announced that all US visas to Russian citizens were being canceled. Moreover, US completely stopped giving out new US visas to Russian citizens. It was also announced by the US State Department that all visas being presently processed will be denied and money will NOT be refunded. In addition to everything, in a true highway robber style, they also stiffed people for their money.
But apparently, not too many Russians apply for US visas, so it turned out to be a pin prick. Those ‘Russians’ who are on US payroll, tasked by their handlers to perform anti-Russian work within the country, will continue getting their visas to the US as they did previously. But normal Russian citizens won’t, and not many are that interested, anyway.
Therefore, denying all Russian visas, present and future, wasn’t enough. That was quickly discovered by the US. They thought long and hard and decided to do some more spectacular damage to Russia-US relations. Earlier today US State Department announced that US shuts down the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco, CA, as well as consular annexes in Washington D.C. and New York.
They hope, said the US State Dept statement, that after this gesture by the US, US-Russia relations will finally begin improving. Anyone rolling on the ground from laughter yet?..
And, in its normal highway bandit manner, the generous US yet again has given 48 hours to Russian families to leave the country.
I had predicted since early 2016 that Trump would be put in that proverbial ‘straitjacket,’ not being able to move and make good on any of his promises, and that he would be made toe the line.
It happened exactly as predicted, and then some. But I’m finding that I was being too nice, giving him too much benefit of the doubt. In fact, Trump caved in to pressure so quickly and so fully that some people’s jaws dropped. Instead of ‘draining the swamp,’ per his campaign promises, he promptly and very successfully got sucked into it, all the way to the brim of his orange hair. Looks like he and his loyal followers are now very happy to co-exist in the same swamp together with the outdated system they vowed to change and those pundits of the system Trump claimed had to go.
I said a couple of months ago that you can forget Trump and all his promises. He has become an ordinary lame duck US president, and he will toe the line as he is told, just to survive. He is now working hard to show his real Dark State masters that he is a good little boy and deserves to finish his term, without impeachment.
In other words, Donald Trump turned out to have even less backbone than anticipated.
The Dark State wants to preserve status quo, and it’s doing a splendid job at it. And the problem? All they are achieving is delaying the day or reckoning. The longer it is delayed, the worse the weight of the USA’s karmic debt will become. Debt repayment may be delayed for several more years, but not much longer than that, as we discussed in Earth Shift Webinar 4.
And in conclusion:
There is a rumor that Rex Tillerson can’t wait to leave his post as US Secretary of State. Per reports, he is fed up, but is trying to finish one year and leave by the end of 2017, so it looks good on his resume. Rats are abandoning the sinking ship.
After leaving, Tillerson will have a lot of damage control to do. I strongly suspect it’ll be too little too late to fix business relations with Russia for Exxon Mobil and other US companies.
It has been known that large American companies have been unsuccessfully lobbying US Congress not to impose new sanctions on Russia, saying that it would damage their business with Russia, as well as that with the EU. EU companies and key EU countries as a whole are hard hit by the new US energy sanctions against Russia. So are US energy giants, such as Exxon Mobil. EU is considering certain response sanctions against the US companies doing business in the EU. At the very least, US companies will find it harder to work in the EU. Yet, none of this stopped the Congress from passing anti-Russian sanctions.
Back in 2014 I said that we should forget the old adage that ‘politics is concentrated economics’ and that economy is what drives geopolitics. This is an outdated notion that only worked in Period 7, for some very specific reasons discussed Earth Shift Webinar 4. Here’s my formula: In PERIOD 8 and throughout this entire EARTH SHIFT, it is geopolitics that is primary, while economy is its servant and appendix.

Hate to say it, but I told you so. In the previous post about color revolution and ex-ambassador to Russia McFaul, “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul, we discussed how dangerous too much power and/or influence in the wrong hands can be. We also discussed the activation of latent Russophobia in: Mass Manchurian Candidate Activation: Latent Russophobia Awakens in the UK.
It is especially bad when the people holding that power and influence are basically fascists and dumb, to boot. It’s even worse when the beast feels cornered, as it’s happening now with Obama administration. Then, a thin veneer of the so-called ‘democracy’ and ‘civilization’ simply falls off and the real visage of the fangs and horns underneath emerges.
That’s what happened during the exchange between RT correspondent Gayane Chichakyan and US State Dept spokesman John Kirby.
RT correspondent Gayane Chichakyan
When Gayane called Kirby’s lie about Russian bombings of ‘hospitals and schools in Aleppo,’ Kirby, being unable to provide answers to journalist’s request for specifics, instead lashed out at her, calling her second sort.
Kirby’s hysterics, tainted with a fascist flavor, generated a retort even from US journalist Matt Lee, who pointed out that the questions were legitimate and that Chichakyan was as much a journalist as the rest of them.
US State Dept had to apologize for its representative’s hysterics, but Kirby himself is silent. I do understand. Democrats are losing it because Hillary lost elections and because past power is slipping out of their hands. Pro-Russian candidates just won elections in Moldova and Bulgaria, and more to come. All this is happening due to Obama admin’s disastrous international politics, as I predicted in 2015.
Video of the incident:
Incidentally, this sweet and delicate girl, Gayane Chichakyan, is Armenian, not Russian, although she probably has Russian citizenship. Taking on US establishment like this… I just want to say, good for her! Go, Gayane! And go RT! What would we do without your honest and revealing news reporting! (Can’t trust the MSM BS from CNN, BBC, NBC, et al. – I stopped watching them in 2003).
This same US State Dept spokesperson John Kirby (who also happens to be US navy admiral, no less) earlier in the year openly threatened Russia with terrorism escalation in Russian cities and with Russian servicemen coming home from Syria in body bags. This must be the new US diplomacy.
That outburst was interpreted around the world as an open order to ISIL and various terrorists to attack Russians. By doing so, Kirby revealed that US indeed controlled Islamist terrorist organizations.
In conclusion, we thought it couldn’t get any worse when the rude and confused Jen Psaki was State Dept spokesperson, who couldn’t tell Africa from Siberia and Black Sea from Baltic Sea. How wrong we were: turns out it can get much, much worse!
Let’s hope the trend changes after Trump takes office.

Predictions. Kiev Junta Losses, Botched False Flag, Foreign Mercenaries, Shale Gas in Ukraine Goes Puff, How Long Has the Kiev Junta Left?
I am on vacation this week; however, I still wanted to post this important new info and predictions.
Official report on Kiev military losses
Info provided by John Durham, from the official report from the Ukraine Interior Minister, Avakov (who by the way will eventually be tried for war crimes, but chances are he may not live that long). I’ve seen this leaked report and I can confirm its existence.
Official Ukrainian Military Report of Losses for July 9-15, 2014(Arsen Avakov, Minister of Interior and V. Gritsak, Head of the ATO)
1. Desertions: 3473
2. Killed in Action: 1600
3. Wounded in Action: 4723
4. Tanks: 35
5. Armoured Battle Vehicles: 96
6. Artillery : 38
7. Aircraft: 7
8. Helicopters: 2
9. Automobiles: 104
In the event the negative trend continues…I estimate that 2/3 of the active combat military units currently participating in the ATO will simply cease to exist in as little as 4 to 5 days.
V. Nalyvaichenko, Security Service
B. Hrytsak, Antiterorist Center Security Service
This report is mind-boggling. Notice, the data is for one week in July only! The same report mentions that Donbass self-defence lost only about 45 people in the same period! Meanwhile, again, according to the same report, around 500 peaceful citizens died in the same timeframe! Clearly, Kiev targets with its bombings exclusively the peaceful population. Kiev dominates the sky, as Donbass self-defence has no planes, nor pilots. At the same time, Kiev is afraid to go head-to-head with self-defence, as they get beaten every time.
US and Kiev screw up the Boeing 777 false flag
Few people know that one day before the Malaysian Boeing 777 downing by Kiev in eastern Ukraine, 4000 Kiev troops were surrounded by self-defence in 3 locations: Donetsk airport, Lugansk airport and near border with Russia. Per Donbass/Novorossia leaders’ reports, this included dozens of tanks, ARCs, planes, and anti-aircraft launchers – a huge loss for the Kiev military. Self-defence was getting ready to close the circle. Once the Boeing 777 catastrophe happened, once the banshee howling started in Kiev and the West that it was self-defence that downed it, which distracted and broadsided the inexperienced politically self-defence commanders, Kiev was able to advance and retrieve its surrounded forces. The confusion surrounding the Boeing downing helped the fledgling Kiev forces to take a break and regroup. When international community demanded ceasefire to allow the investigation, Donbass immediately complied, while Kiev used the opportunity to attack and kill 150 more peaceful citizens in Donetsk and Lugansk republics. The UN banned phosphorus bombs were used again.
This is the same technology also used by Israel against Palestinians. Is Israel, in concert with the US, advising Kiev how to act, and supplies them with UN banned foreign technology?
Now, a simple question, anyone who isn’t fully corrupt, should be able to easily answer: WHO BENEFITTED FROM THE BOEING 777 DISASTER, AND WHO DIDN’T?
Of course, Kiev and US were hoping that the Boeing downing could be blamed on Russia.
US/CIA operations are always multi-prong and multi-layered. They pursue multiple goals at once and if some don’t materialize, others will – that’s the philosophy. So, with the Boeing 777 downing in Ukraine, US pursued multiple agendas, one of them being to scare President Putin and other world leaders who don’t toe the line. For that, read:
- Post Scriptum: Strange Coincidences? Moscow Metro Tragedy and Malaysian Airliner MH17 Downing
- Blatant #FalseFlag: #Ukraine Missile Targeted #Putin’s Plane – Hit Malaysia #MH17 Instead!
- Urgent: Fast Track to WWIII? “USA’s Goal Is to Overturn Putin.”
But as is now well-known, US and Kiev screwed up again. They failed to scare Putin. US couldn’t supply a shred of real evidence of either Russian or Donbass self-defence involvement. When pressed for proof of their empty allegations, US could only come up with images they copied from the Kiev’s falsified reports and from the internet.
Then, the CIA was asked to back US claims. This situation reminded the CIA painfully of the 2003 Iraq weapons of mass destruction lie, which cost many at CIA their jobs. When the CIA pros asked who will be responsible when the shit hits the fan, they were given no satisfactory answer. Therefore, CIA refused to back US claims that either Russia or Donbass self-defence were involved… because they knew full well that the opposite was true.
It is well-known that US has a very sophisticated satellite coverage of eastern Ukraine.The Russian military has disclosed that US has several satellites permanently covering – read spying – the space between eastern Ukraine and south-western Russia, including all movement of the military hardware, troops, movements across the Russian border, missiles shot, etc. And with all this, they were unable to provide a single satellite image, a single credible document confirming their allegations. They are so deep in their lies, so profoundly corrupt, they don’t even understand how stupid and how disgusting they look to the rest of the world!
Meanwhile, the Russian military presented the full satellite imagery report and full analysis of the situation. The imagery was transferred to the EU. The EU of course is as corrupt as the US, however, in light of the undisputable evidence, they are now painted into a corner, and will eventually have to admit the truth.
It also came out that Kiev’s so-called evidence was falsified. The so-called conversation between Novorossia commanders admitting the downing of the Boeing was in fact slapped together of 6 conversations, some of which occurred several days prior to the event. The footage of the BUK system that Kiev said was moving speedily towards Russian border after downing the unfortunate Boeing 777, was another falsification. The Ukrainian bloggers quickly placed the BUK imagery in a town occupied by the Kiev junta since May. The now infamous number of that BUK, #312, clearly visible on its body, was the same number caught on camera in March 2014, when this same BUK #312 was photographed as part of the Kiev junta military convoy.
The king is naked for all to see. Who in their right mind, except the presstitute western media and politicians, would still be fooled into thinking it wasn’t Kiev that downed the Boeing 777, with the US open encouragement and direction?
Russia’s humanitarian gesture and mass defections from Ukraine army
From my sources: Russia opened a humanitarian corridor for the wounded Ukr army soldiers. Previously, 18 wounded Ukr army soldiers asked for help and were healed in a Russian hospital in Rostov oblast. Presently, another 30 wounded Ukr soldiers were given asylum and safe passage though Russian territory back to Ukraine. Just in the last couple of days, another 40 Ukr military laid down arms and asked for asylum in Russia. And this is only the official data! Many more have defected quietly.
Let’s remember that while Russians are healing and giving safe passage to wounded Ukr soldiers, Ukraine meanwhile had killed 3 Russian journalists, other accredited journalists were kidnapped, beaten and denied entry into the country. And these are representatives of the PRESS, who are supposed to be protected by international law! What can be said about the ordinary citizens! At one point, there were billboards in Ukraine, financed by war criminal (who will be tried by the tribunal for crimes against humanity), oligarch Kolomoysky, promising $10,000 for every dead Russian. This is the criminal fascist regime that US supports fully and wholeheartedly. This is the fascist regime that EU, pretending to be oh, so democratic and righteous, also FULLY SUPPORTS!
More from my sources: Ukr army is quickly running out of people willing to fight in Donbass. Kiev had announced the ‘third round’ sweeping mobilization. Anonymous calls from Ukraine keep coming in to various organizations and TV stations in Russia. People are saying that Kiev drafters go around villages and towns, looking for those they can draft. Reminds me of the Nazi Germany circa 1943, when they started seriously losing in Russia.
The only salvation for villagers is to hide or run away. If they see a young man, they will draft him. Parents hide their sons in cellars. People run away to join guerillas, or the Donbass self-defence.
Gruesome reports are coming out that national guard, formed by Kiev junta from nazis and hard criminals they let out of jails, has been executing soldiers who refuse to fire at their compatriots in eastern Ukraine. People witnessed horrible scenes when mass graves were dug along roads and bodies were piled in, then sprayed with acid so they wouldn’t be recognized.
Those interested, on YT there is a new video by Nikolay Starikov in which he explains how those who don’t want to be part of the Kiev junta atrocities, those who don’t want to spill the blood of their compatriots, can lay down arms on the border and cross over to Russia, Hungary or Poland to become ‘interned persons,’ where they will be safe till the end of war. This is a great solution for those who don’t want any part of the war. Or, google the international law regarding safe passage for interned persons during a war.
Reports of Polish, Azerbaijani, Israeli and Romanian pilot mercenaries
Since Ukr army is running out of pilots, there are reports of mercenaries from Poland, Israel, Romania and Azerbaijan piloting planes that bomb the peaceful citizens of Donbass. UN-banned phosphorus bombs were again used, resulting in the poisoning of the peaceful population. It is reported that the bombs, including phosphorus, are supplied by the US and Israel. This is blatant international interference into the internal conflict, that is being flatly denied by the US.
Many Ukrainian mothers, including in western Ukraine considered the hotbed of fascism, are protesting their sons being drafted. Ukraine is again on the brink of another #maidan revolution, which is expected by next spring – could be sooner. This new violent maidan won’t solve anything as the population is so terribly confused and blinded, as well as brainwashed.
I foresee a long and arduous way to the difficult realization how much is wrong in the country. Unfortunately, the country is fully hijacked by the corrupt forces that want to suck it dry. These forces are both internal and external.
The realization will be extremely agonizing for those who for years lived in a lie, or a desperate fantasy that is very far from any semblance of reality. They will have to come to terms with the truth that those they perceive as their enemies are in fact their friends, while those they perceive as their friends, are not. The fifth column sold-out media, the corrupt, profit-greedy oligarchs, along with the many external forces, are doing everything to keep the Ukrainians confused and blinded.
There are predictions about the duration of this conflict at the end of this post, as well as in PREDICTIONS – which I suggest everyone reads carefully, along with suggested articles at the bottom.
Bomb! Shale gas bonanza in Ukraine evaporates
I just love this one! What an irony, and it didn’t take that long, did it?
As is well-known, the US stooge Poroshenko has been appointed by #Nuland and US State Dept to play the role of the Ukraine clown president. According to Russian sources (confirmed recently by US State Dept email exchanges leaked by Wikileaks), Poroshenko was recruited by the CIA since at least mid-1990s. They called him “our man in Kiev.”
I recently heard a 2012 debate between Nikolay Starikov and this same infamous Poroshenko, in which Poroshenko was ardently declaring that soon Ukraine would be able to stop buying Russian gas and would instead become a gas-producing powerhouse, supplying entire Europe with its shale gas, thus taking away the business from Russia.
I have learned that Poroshenko and the Kiev junta LEASED THE ENTIRE EASTERN UKRAINE TO THE WESTERN INTERESTS for the term of 50 years. This particularly concerns SHELL Oil, in order to develop the supposed bonanza of the Ukrainian shale gas. Shell in its reports declared that Ukraine contains 1/3 of all commercially viable shale gas located in Europe. Seemed like a dream come true to the bankrupt Ukr economy.
The deposits were supposedly located exclusively in eastern Ukraine, including Donbass (Lugansk, Donetsk), Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhie and Kharkov regions.
Very few know this, but the smart, well-informed population of Donbass realized that #fracking would be dangerous for their health. In addition to political and cultural reasons, this is in part why they rebelled against Kiev. To remind everyone, Donbass, as well entire eastern Ukraine, is where ALL of Ukraine’s industry and natural resources reside. Eastern Ukraine is what makes up most of Ukr GDP.
Donbass residents are convinced that Kiev junta has been bombing their infrastructure – power plants, water mains and water/sewer stations, housing, hospitals, schools – because Kiev is trying to eliminate the population, make the area uninhabitable so to free up space for shale gas fracking. The fewer residents, the less protest to deal with.
We know that US VP’s son, Hunter Biden was suddenly named a director of the leading Ukr gas company. So, at least in part the bombings of eastern Ukraine are explained by the Western greed. Of course, there is much more to the story, and we should never forget that the overriding reason is geopolitical.
I am convinced that the corrupt and greedy Kiev, as well as gullible Ukrainians, were played and falsely promised untold riches from shale gas, just like farmers in the US. It is understood at this point that only the US has enough shale gas to make it commercially viable. Although US tries to sell the shale gas fairytale to various poor countries in order to make a quick buck, the rest of the world doesn’t have enough shale gas to make its extraction commercially viable. Except Russia, who announced they won’t use this barbaric extraction method.
As to the Ukraine, US knew early on there wasn’t enough gas there to make it commercially viable, yet kept stringing Ukraine along for geopolitical reasons, using the oligarch greed and desperate desire of Ukraine to get out of the looming bankruptcy.
I wrote about that on many occasions and you can read it in my earlier articles about Ukraine and Russia. The main goal of the US is to destroy Ukraine, so later, when they throw it out as a squeezed out lemon, Ukraine is left with no viable economy. So, when it’s time for Russia to pick up the pieces, Russia would spend a lot of resources and time, trying to put back together the broken pieces of the brotherly, but very stupid, population. Additionally, the goal is to try to breed the beastly hatred towards Russia in Ukraine, so that later to unleash that hatred via terrorist attacks and sabotage of Russia from Ukraine. This attempt was already made before in Georgia, which of course wasn’t very successful. You can search this blog for my article about striking geopolitical similarities between Georgia 2008 and Ukraine 1014.
Of course, see more about all this on PREDICTIONS page as well.
Back to shale gas: Shell announced that they would be postponing any fracking in Ukraine due the armed conflict. When did they ever postpone their greed because of any local wars? Never! Reading between the lines: there is no commercially viable shale gas in Ukraine! This fact was announced by the Russian scientists.
The thing is, the lazy Kiev bureaucrats and oligarchs, who simply don’t want to produce anything, who are used to sucking out the life out of the developed east and south, wanted to believe the shale gas lie. And at least in part, that’s what got them into this bloody war.
This answers very well why Kiev refused to pay for Russian gas since the beginning of 2014, which prompted Russia to stop the supply of gas to Ukraine. Ukraine is used to stealing Russian gas, although the new monitoring system makes such stealing difficult. It is impossible to understand why Kiev burned all the bridges with Russia and how they will survive the winter after their gas reserves run out… until we factor in that they thought they would have shale gas Americans promised them flowing any moment.
Shell Oil, working as a proxy for the US/UK/Canada, lured Kiev into a false sense of security, promising something unattainable in order to keep them sabotaging Russia.
However, this kind of deception can’t continue forever. And here is the result! No gas means Ukraine will not be able to survive the winter, unless someone gives them gas.
Ukraine needs this lesson very badly, because this is the only thing that may still teach them some sense. The new maidan revolution will happen when the population gets desperate enough.
It’s time for the Donbass self-defence to regroup and start advancing. They need to take the initiative away from Kiev. At the same time they need to be on a serious look-out for more false flags, which are undoubtedly coming. The more people from the other areas of Ukraine join them, the sooner the advance and liberation from the Kiev junta will occur.
As you know, my prediction since the beginning of the Ukraine mayhem has been that Ukraine will become a part of the Eurasian Union between 2016 and 2018. Due to the condition in which Ukraine economy will be by then, it will probably only qualify as associate member or observer.
Will Ukraine still be intact for the most part? There will never be a Ukraine as it existed for 23 years. That country is gone forever. Ukraine will be a reduced state, and it may contract to what I call “Ukraine proper,” consisting of the actual “Malorossia” territory (central and northern Ukraine, with capital Kiev). A lot depends of what Donbass and the East decide. See PREDICTIONS for more.
More Geopolitical and Mystical Predictions
Very unfortunately, as I predicted from the very beginning, and later – the stated goal of the US/Transatlantists is to destroy everything they can in Ukraine. And they are succeeding. As I also said from the start, Russia will have to pick up the pieces later, when Ukraine is squeezed like a lemon and thrown out by the West. Sorry, but this is the unfortunate reality written in the stars, and the fault is that of Ukraine, since Ukrainians let this go this far and never corrected their course on those many occasions they were offered.
Russia will have to face its shadow side, which is Ukraine. Ukraine, or correctly Malorossia (Russia Minor), is of course the integral part of the Russian world, together with Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and many other places. Russians have been wearing rosy glasses when it comes to Ukraine for far too long. Ukrainians have some good qualities, which perhaps are very hard to see right now. But it’s time to face the shadows: Ukrainian vicious nationalism, the fact that they easily succumb to external manipulation, naiveté combined with wishful thinking, fascism, greed. Let’s face it… there is also a very well-known quality of some Ukrainians – that of disloyalty and betrayal, as portrayed by the beloved classic of both Russian and Ukrainian literature, Nikolai Gogol (originally from Ukraine), in his well-known historic fiction, Taras Bulba. This same situation of extreme cruelty and betrayal happened when during WWII some western Ukrainians joined the SS division Galichina and similar German nazi troops, executing hundreds of thousands of Russians, Ukrainians and Poles.
These qualities can lead to cancer, which is now metastasizing into all layers of Ukraine society.
Smart people learn from others’ experience. Ukrainians aren’t smart at large, as we well see. All the smart ones either left, or are in Donbass.
Only the destruction of everything they have will finally teach them a lesson.
Russians are finally waking up to the facts, and taking off their rosy glasses. The trick for Russians is not to lose sight of the big picture and not to succumb to hatred, which is the natural and easy thing to do under the circumstances, considering the beastly attitude and hatred on the other side.
My prediction: Russians will come out of this with flying colors. The West – especially US, Canada and UK – meanwhile is really accumulating the kind of bad karma that will come back to haunt them soon.
Lada Ray Interview About Ukraine and Russia With Plane Truth:
The Road to Moscow Goes Through Kiev
Listen to my interview with the Time Monk Radio‘s show, The Plane Truth. It includes the analysis of the events in Ukraine; Russia, US and EU’s roles and aims; Ukraine and Russia’s history and how Ukraine became the artificial entity that it is today. Around 40:00 we talk about striking geopolitical similarities between Georgia war/Beijing Olympics and Ukraine coup/Sochi Olympics. later in the show we discuss the long-ranging predictions for Ukraine, Russia, US, EU, and more!
In response to my ongoing series of articles about #Ukraine, #Crimea and #Russia, I have been receiving a number of supportive emails, tweets and RTs, as well as comments on Youtube and my blogs. However, there are also these: Read the rest of this entry
