Re-posting this article from Stanislav as a whole!
Stanislav Sokolov, May, 2019:
In 2015 I translated Georgij Zotov’s article Repentance of Berlin. After 70 years, the Germans have an unambiguous attitude towards the Soviet victory.
This year it elicited the following comment:
LaRock on March 6, 2019 at 19:50 said:
The war is over stop punishing Germany
To which I replied:
Stanislav on March 12, 2019 at 20:02 said:
This comment should be addressed to the USA, who are still occupying and punishing Germany. If you read the article, you’d see that it’s about remembrance and reconciliation.
However, a better reply would have been a translation of an even earlier article by Zotov, one from 2013. I am translating it below, followed by a translation of two reader comments from AiF and my thoughts on them and what Zotov wrote in one particular paragraph.
Today, with racism and calls to war and genocide being the norm on the pages of the Western MSM (“racism” is a common-root synonym of “russophobia”) and the number of the Western troops and war hardware right on the Russian border being the highest since the June of 1941, it is time to remember. For while the West is collectively shrugging off 1941-1945 as “just another invasion of Russia” and preparing for a new one, Russia remembers, watches closely and prepares to defend its land once more.
In this today’s context remembrance is the key to preventing another invasion of Russia by the West, and prevent this time hundreds of millions people being killed – both defenders, attackers and bystanders…
Argumenty i Fakty, 05.05.2013
“AiF” correspondent talked in Germany with a lot of people, including the grandson of Rudolf Hess. And found out that the Victory Day is respected, but most residents of Germany do not know how many lives we lost in The War.
The 15-year-old Gunther suddenly had a seizure – an hour after the start of the tour. He fell to his knees beside the barracks and began to sob, smearing tears on his cheeks. A crowd gathered around the boy. Someone from his high school was calling on a cellphone, someone searched the pockets for pills. “Why?!” Gunther shouted. “How could the Germans do THIS to people?! Do we even deserve forgiveness?”

Nervous breakdowns of German teenagers in the ex-concentration camp of the SS Dachau near Munich are quite common. Despite this, a visit to the memorial is included in the compulsory school curriculum for high school. Children are shown the crematorium ovens, where tens of thousands of prisoners burned, gas chambers and photos of savage experiments of SS doctors. “It is necessary in order for this not to happen again,” the Museum employee told me. “After all, the worst of evils is forgotten over time.” That’s, probably, the case. According to polls, 80% of Germans now do not know that their grandfathers killed 27 million people in the USSR…
“Land of ice and snow”
“What do I think about the Victory Day? Oh, the Russians seem like mysterious heroes from science fiction films to me. That’s, probably, how the people, who overturned Hitler should appear. Many Germans still do not understand why Germany decided to fight with you. We have much in common as peoples – take, for example, at least a love for sausages and beer!»
73-year-old lawyer Rolf Clement was a child when the war began. His cousin, an officer of the Wehrmacht, froze to death in Stalingrad. He says, there can be no hard feelings: “We attacked, you defended. Fair enough.” But Rolf has a different attitude towards the Americans and the British: “In the Summer of 43, their aircraft completely burned Hamburg, killing 42 thousand people. Is this the right kind of war?” The Germans often emphasized in the interviews: Hitler was a monster, but they also had hard times when he was in power. They remember the death of Paulus’s army, the bombing of the cities, and the fall of Berlin. They are well aware of the Holocaust and the millions of Jews killed in concentration camps. However, the inhabitants of Germany do not know much about the seas of blood, which flooded the Soviet Union.
“For the Germans,” says historian Gerhard Büchlein “Russia is a country of ice and snow, where “General Winter” froze poor boys dressed in a uniform with a swastika. But in Germany they shy to argue on the topic that the Wehrmacht and the SS perpetrated on the occupied territory of the USSR. On TV and in press they do not forget to mention: only 6 thousand soldiers (from 100 thousand taken as POWs in Stalingrad) have returned home. However, few people know that 3 million Soviet prisoners of war were tortured in the SS concentration camps. We are horrified by the allied air raids – 600 thousand Germans buried alive under the rubble of buildings in Berlin, Dresden, Regensburg. And we have no idea that exactly the same number of people died from hunger and shelling because of the siege of Leningrad.”

Munich (like Hamburg) was also bombed, though less so. Some “significant places” of the Third Reich survived, but then they were destroyed by the Germans themselves. For example, a demolished pub “Burgerbraukeller”, where Hitler pushed speeches (for the avoidance of pilgrimage for neo-Nazis). The man I’m interviewing is taking me downtown.
“You know,” I say to my companion. “If my grandfather had seen us, he would not have liked it.”
“Hmm,” he says in reply. “And mine even less so. I’m sitting next to a Russian!”
“Did we kill so many?!»
My grandfather was a Soviet military pilot, was shot down in late 1944 and remained in captivity until the German surrender. The grandfather of my interlocutor, 34-year-old engineer Wolf Hess, was Hitler’s Deputy for the party, obergruppenführer Rudolf Hess. Wolf himself is anti-fascist and sincerely believes that May the 9th is the liberation of his country from dictatorship. “I want to know,” he asks. “If I come to Russia, will I have any difficulties?” “Of course not,” I say. “Even those who fought forgave the Germans.” Wolf nods: “I never felt that the Russians were our enemies. And… how many civilians died in the USSR?” I answer him – about 18 million. Executions of hostages, mass executions in Babi Yar, punitive actions, automated suffocator machines in Krasnodar. Wolf pales. “Really that many?!»
This phrase is one that I often hear in Germany. “Do you want to see photos on the Internet?” I enquire. “There are SS men posing next to the mountains of corpses. There are thousands of pictures in the archives.” My companion is lost in thought. “We rarely talk about it,” he sighs. “The main theme of the atrocities of the Nazis is Holocaust.”
In my opinion, we should not forget the Holocaust. It’s the insane destruction of an entire nation, from babies to old people. Another thing – it turns out that repentance for the atrocities of the German army is very selective. Films, talk shows and TV shows are devoted to one fact, while the others are kept under wraps. Even in Austria, in a town near the former SS Mauthausen concentration camp, when I asked passers-bys about who had been killed in the barracks, the opinions are divided. “Jews, I think,” said one man. “Communists,” remembered the second. No one named the Russians, but 39% of the prisoners of Mauthausen were Soviet prisoners of war. The image of the Eastern front in the thinking of modern Germans is the snow, the horrors of storming of the burning Berlin and the the soldiers in Stalingrad, devoid of human appearance. Marking May the 9th as the day of the defeat of the Third Reich, Germany still did not realize the scale of the victims among the population of the USSR. No, we don’t need to be apologized to endlessly. It would be nice to just remember…

One of the students, who arrived in Dachau in a group with Gunther, talked to me while his classmate was given a sedative. “You are from Moscow? Must be a big city. But I don’t even know – were the Germans in Moscow during the war?” “A lot of them,” I said to the boy. “They built a bunch of houses around the “Forum” cinema, helped to build Moscow State University, restored the factories”. “So they were prisoners?” the boy was embarrassed. “Oh… excuse me for asking.” “No problem,” I smiled. “But now you know the truth.”
The following line in Zotov’s article:
“Even those who fought forgave the Germans.”
sparked righteous anger with two of the AiF readers, resulting in the following comments, which I think are important to translate:
Alksander Stepanko, 08.05.2013:
I didn’t fight [in that war]… born in 1957. Comrade Zotov! Who gave You the right to speak for everyone!? How can we forgive the torturers?! … the killed, buried alive, perished 27 million !!!…. How can this be forgiven?! Did you even understand what you wrote?!
Alla Rybkina, 11.02.2015:
I am from 1949 and neither I nor my children will ever forgive the GERMANS, they buried my grandmother and her children alive in a huge pit of, and forced my grandfather to dig them in, he was Polish. My mother miraculously survived. And my mother-in-law lost all her teeth in the Blockade when she was 30, but rescued two daughters. How can this be forgiven??????????????.
These are very powerful testimonials, and one can collect millions of such testimonials throughout the country that once was USSR. I think, however, that neither Zotov nor these commentators are right. Forgiveness cannot be bestowed upon a Nation as a whole – it can be given to the actual German perpetrator of the war crimes. But what they did cannot be forgiven nor forgotten. The contemporary Germans, the young and those who never fought in that war – there is nothing to forgive them for. We can only hope to build common relations, remember and ensure that the atrocities of WWII are never repeated. Together.
But those Germans who in 1941-1945 came to Russia to kill and conquer, those who inspired them, like Hitler, and those who financed them, like Henry Ford and grandfather of two American presidents – Bush, those Western powers (Britain, France among others) who during the Munich Conspiracy of 1938 gave their active blessing to the start of WWII, thinking that it would not touch them, but would only become a battering ram against the USSR (much like the 2014 neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine).
These are the forces deserving the righteous anger of the Russian people, not the Germans as a whole. It should also be remembered that many Germans themselves perished while trying to fight and stall the rise of Nazism.
5th Anniversary – Unforgettable March 2014: How Russian ‘Polite Men’ Saved Crimea! Amazing Moments Captured in Pics!
5th ANNIVERSARY OF CRIMEA’S REUNIFICATION WITH RUSSIA!

The Unforgettable March 2014: How Russian ‘Polite Men’ Saved Crimea
Amazing Moments Captured in Pics!
Following the Kiev Maidan and anti-government coup in Ukraine, in March 2014 the popular referendums in Crimea and Sevastopol voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and re-join Russia.
Within days a massive number of photos and videos appeared on the Internet. They depicted Crimean residents and children enthusiastically hugging and smiling at people with guns and in balaclavas.
Dubbed ‘the polite men’, Russian servicemen became a highly desirable addition to wedding and kids’ photos. The fashion to take selfies with the Polite Men spread through Crimea like fire.
Quite a few images depicted the Polite Men with happy children and cats.
Indeed the number of such unrehearsed, spontaneous images, including cats, was so great that grateful residents made a statue commemorating them. The statue depicts Polite Man with a gun and a young girl handing him flowers; at their feet is a cat. This statue stands in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea:
The remarkable presence of the Polite Men in unmarked uniforms, or the ‘little green men,’ as they were also called, made a miracle possible. While a short distance away, Ukraine burned and violence spread throughout, not a single shot was fired and not a single casualty took place in Crimea. The Polite Men were just there: unobtrusively, quietly. They didn’t interfere, but they watched over the peninsula, while people voted and later, while Crimea transitioned peacefully to Russia.
Also, a large collection of these photos in this video, made in March 2014: ‘Finally Russians Came to Crimea’

My collection of some of the best and most famous hit LOVE songs from Russia. I chose them for you to expand on the lovely topic of March 8: What’s So Unusual About March 8?! International Women’s Day Special!
The songs aren’t in any particular order. By the way, the Russian song lyrics is usually very meaningful and often profound; it normally adds to the perception of a song. I’ve translated some of the lyrics, to give you an idea of what each song is about. But the music is lovely and beautiful in its own right, so enjoy!
Let me know in comments which of these you enjoyed best! Also, I am hearing these with my Russian ear, and I understand the lyrics and the rhythmics of a Russian song. But I am genuinely curious how those who don’t understand the words hear these? How do you think these are different and how do you like them compared, for instance, to English language love songs, and/or such songs in other languages? Your impressions are most welcome!
BEST CONTEMPORARY RUSSIAN LOVE SONGS
I’ll Stay, Aya & Gorod 312 band
Город 312, Останусь
The lyrics is beautiful, and the melody is even better. Brief translation:
“In the end of tunnel, the bright light of a blind star…
A lingering trace of my soles on dry leaves…
I still feel the pulse, and an urge to live…
I may never return, but perhaps I’ll stay…
I’ll stay as ashes on your lips,
I’ll stay as fire in your eyes,
As a breath of wind in your hands.
I’ll stay as snow on your cheek,
I’ll stay as a far away light,
I’ll remain your light… Your light…”
How Enchanting are the Nights in Russia… White Eagle band, Kremlin
The melody is beautiful and truly enchanting.
БЕЛЫЙ ОРЕЛ, КАК УПОИТЕЛЬНЫ В РОССИИ ВЕЧЕРА, КРЕМЛЬ
“Perhaps it’s just dream and love is just a game,
Perhaps my feelings are nothing to you,
Whether in this or other world, I’ll never forget
How enchanting are the Russian nights…”
I Don’t Regret (theme song from the hit 2000s Russian TV series, Poor Nastia, a mesmerizing 19th century paranormal historic drama)
Мне не жаль… [Владимир/Анна/Михаил] “Бедная Настя”
Lyrics, brief translation:
I don’t regret that the fire in my blood has burned and tore at my heart,
But I regret that in the past I lived without love, I regret that I didn’t love enough.
I never stopped loving you, and my soul calls out your name.
With all my heart I pray to creator for you…
Love That Feels Like a Dream, Lara Fabian
A bit of the lovely lyrics:
‘Love that feels like a dream,
The crystal peeling of our hearts,
Your magical ‘I love you,’
I’ll quietly echo back to you.
Love that feels like a dream
Has made my home a happy place,
And contrary to the law of dreams,
May it never end.’
Любовь Похожая На Сон
I Love You to Tears, Aleksandr Serov
Александр Серов – Я люблю тебя до слёз (Ya lublu tebya do slez)
Nice dramatic lyrics! Brief translation:
“I love you to tears
Every breath is like the first time
Instead of a lie of pretty words
I give you a cloud made of roses
With these white rose petals I’ll make our bed
I love you to tears, I love you like mad…
Unfinished Romance, Irina Alegrova and Igor Krutoi (author)

Autumn Leaves, Alla Pugacheva (episode from the acclaimed 2000s film ‘The Admiral’).
Алла Пугачева – Осенние листья
FAMOUS SOVIET LOVE SONGS
I think for the most part you’ll find that Soviet songs were quieter, more melodic and less dramatic than the contemporary Russian songs. But the lyrics and essence was just as, or even more, epic and significant. The lyrics often is very good and full of wisdom.
A Million of Crimson Roses (Rus translit: Milion Alyh Roz), Alla Pugacheva, early 1980s. Pugacheva at the time was one of the biggest names in Soviet and world pop music. For the USSR she was pretty revolutionary, as her style was non-traditional; she was more Western than Russians were used to. Pugacheva’s singing contributed in subtle ways to the USSR collapse, as consciousness awakened through many things, including her songs. Interestingly, to this day she remains a neo-liberal. But she can sing, and for that much is forgiven.
This is a pretty straightforward story of a poor artist who fell in love with a famous actress and to impress her he sold his house and works and bought a million of crimson roses to fill the square in front of her residence. They never saw each other again, but both carried a memory of that day forever. This simple story doesn’t compare in depth to other lyrics in this compilation, but the song became very famous.
I’ll Never Forget You. Dmitry Karachentsov (lead). From the legendary hit musical of the ’80s, Yunona and Avos. The musical was so famous that well-known Western musicians lined up for a chance to be in it.
This dramatic musical is about two Russian navy ships, Yunona and Avos, that arrived on a friendly visit to Latin America in the 19th century. The young daughter of a local Spanish governor falls in love with a Russian officer, who is under orders to leave back home, but promises to return for her. He dies before being able to fulfill his promise. The song is about their eternal love and the fact that they understand they may never see each other again. She promises to be his guiding light, his sail on the way back home; her love would protect him.
Юнона и Авось – Я тебя никогда не забуду
The film is about the 1825 failed Decembrist coup against Tsar Nikolay I; the mutineer officers are sent to Siberia and their aristocratic wives face an excruciating decision of whether to follow their husbands into harsh exile. Here’s the film’s Wikipedia page.
‘Don’t promise a young maiden eternal love on earth…”
The song is simply charming, reminiscing of the care-free days when various protagonists first met and fell in love.
Не обещайте деве юной (Романс)
Echo of Love, Anna German and Lev Leshchenko (One of the Songs of the Year 1977)
Anna German was a Polish singer, who became famous for her performance of the Russian songs.
Анна Герман и Лев Лещенко “Эхо любви” Песня года – 1977
Hope, My Earthly Compass
Another beloved Soviet hit, performed by many singers, but Anna German’s version was probably the best. The song is about holding on to your love no matter the distance. It was written with an idea of the families of pilots and stewardesses in mind, who often flew in different directions and whose meetings were rare.
Анна Герман – Надежда, мой компас земной (Nadezhda, moy kompass zemnoy)
Tenderness (alt. title: The Earth Is Empty Without You). The song was written for the cosmonauts flying off into space and their loved ones. The narrative is from a female standpoint, she misses the love of her life, and so does Mother Earth; she is asking him to fly back home soon. But the song goes deeper, and has a resonance with those who passed and left this world, and how much the living miss them.
Майя Кристалинская – Нежность (Опустела без тебя земля)
Eternal Love, Charles Aznavour – Russian and French versions (From the legendary Soviet film, Teheran-43, about the secret 1943 meeting of Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill in Iran, a successful prevention by Russian intelligence of the German terrorist plot against three leaders – Roosevelt ended up staying at the Russian embassy for security reasons – and a love story that developed between two main characters.)
Шарль Азнавур “Вечная любовь” Russian version
ORIGINAL SONG WITH THE FILM CLIP: Eternal Love,Charles Aznavour. The original theme song, with the actual footage from the movie “Tegeran-43”. The theme of an undying love, a life lived in love, is dramatically contrasted and juxtaposed in the film to the horrifying images of WWII, but the ending depicts a brief reunion of the two lovers, Russian intelligence officer and a Russian-French lady, many years later in Paris. In the French version of the film, they ‘shyly’ omitted the powerful footage of the WWII devastation, but the Russian version showed it in full.

This exclusive report is a compliment to my new book, available for a limited time to all my Patrons, starting at $5+ contribution! As a Part of Quantum Calibrations CORE FEATURE, It’ll switch to $10+ content by Mid-March!
THIS IS NOT AN EXCERPT!
IT’S A BRAND NEW COMPARATIVE REPORT, DRAWING ON THE BOOK AND EXPANDING ON IT!
In my new book Geopolitical & Geo-Economic Quantum Calibrations (ebook and paerback), among many other things, you will read about peer groups and peer-to-peer comparisons.
And in my free Sunday article, UKRAINE ELECTIONS REPORT, expanding on my new book, I have talked about Ukraine and how much it deteriorated since 2014.
The book makes all the developments taking place in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, together with over 100 other countries, territories, governments and world organizations, clear through calibrations and a unique blend of geopolitical, Earth Shift and multidimensional analysis.
In this exclusive post I want to go further! Let’s compare the three formerly very close sisterly republics, which have been developing as separate, yet still very much linked states. Just pure factual comparisons in this article, along with some multidimensional stuff (please see the extensive calibrations of all three, together with expanded chapters, in the book)!
Let’s find out how exactly and why a massive divergence between the three occurred in the past 27 years.
Sisters: Russia and Ukraine (and Belarus, too)
I think this article makes for a very educational, and almost mystical, case study. By reading it in conjunction with the book’s calibrations, you’ll get a full and truly fascinating picture of evolution – or when applicable, devolution – of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus!
LET’S DIVE IN!
You’ll find that EURASIA/Russian World/Post-Soviet Space is grouped as a separate segment in the book. Historically the closest peers in it have been Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Included are expanded chapters analyzing all three.
I still remember how it was during the USSR days: there were differences, of course, but we all were very close. To this day, people throughout the post-Soviet Space and beyond listen to the same Russian music, watch same Russian movies and read same Russian books. They speak the same language, celebrate same holidays, even if in some places they are denied their birthright. They root for the same athletes. Their mentality is still very close, and many of them have relatives and friends across borders.
Russian and Ukrainian athletes are friends, no matter what (many such pics from 2016 Brazil Olympics appeared on the Internet, in defiance of the Kiev junta).
The map of the USSR
When you read the book and this post, pay attention to how different these former sister republics of the USSR have become since its collapse! The divergence in directions of development, the differences in their lists of accomplishments and the gaps in calibrations are so epic that it almost seems unreal.
(Next closest to the three sister republics are Moldova and Kazakhstan, whose stories you’ll also read in the book!)
COMPARE RUSSIA, BELARUS & UKRAINE TODAY, 2019!
To start with, as a striking comparison from the book I am posting Current Calibrations (QC & CHI) for all three countries as a whole and calibrations of each leader! In the book each of the three boasts its own expanded article, analysis and predictions, together with a full battery of calibrations for country, leader, economy, army, solvency and sovereignty. The Russian chapter also includes bonus calibrations and interpretations for Moscow, which is one of the world’s highest calibrated capitals today, and for Russian PM, Dmitry Medvedev, the world’s highest-calibrated PM.
You will find huge and eye-opening gaps between the three countries’ values. These differences will be confirmed by the detailed comparative analysis in this brand new report!

In September last year, I started writing a short summary article regarding the US plans to nuke USSR and China. That followed in the wake of documents, declassified by the US themselves. As I wrote it, the article included notes on Dresden firebombing and the nuking of Japan. Back then, the time didn’t feel right to publish it.
But now, after reading you report: Truth & Karma! How USA Created 20th Century Cold War & Arms Race: Russian Berlin & Manchuria Operations vs. USA’s Hiroshima/Nagasaki Atomic Bombing, I think the time has come.
Freshly posted on Jan 22, 2019! Read:
In the recently-declassified documents, the US military details such plans of an all-out nuclear first strike against the USSR and China. I have written before about the American plans to drop 204 A-bombs onto the 66 of the largest Soviet cities, including Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev…

The US in the past century has been raking in that bad karma like there is no tomorrow,while payback is still to come. Speaking of the end of WWII and the nuclear bombing…
There are many layers of lies in the propaganda Nancy described in her comment, which the US was spinning at the time. I bet no one ever mentioned in US history books or MSM that in fact the Japanese army and the Japanese Empire as a whole capitulated not because of the US bombing, but because Russians, not Americans, were at the time delivering a crushing defeat to Japan’s Quantung Army. This was also known as the Manchurian Strategic Operation, 9-20 of August, 1945.
HIROSHIMA/NAGASAKI ATOMIC BOMBING: Dates: Aug 6, 1945 – Aug 9, 1945
During the final stage of World War II, the United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively. The United States dropped the bombs after obtaining the consent of the United Kingdom, as required by the Quebec Agreement. Wikipedia
SOVIET MANCHURIAN STRATEGIC OPERATION: Dates: Aug 9-20, 1945
Wikipedia: Manchzhurskaya Strategicheskaya Nastupatelnaya Operatsiya) or simply the Manchurian Operation (Маньчжурская операция), began on 9 August 1945 with the Soviet invasion of the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo. It was the last campaign of the Second World War…

Проект моста через Дунай, который презентовали Порошенко и премьеру Болгарии Бойко Борисову во время их визита в Одесскую область, оказался банально срисован с фото моста через Амур в российском Хабаровске.
Fake Revealed! Ukraine simply copied a Russian Bridge across Amur in Khabarovsk, Siberia, presenting it as their own design of a bridge across Danube! The project of the new bridge across Danube, which was presented to Poroshenko and PM of Bulgaria Boyko Borisov during their visit to Odessa Oblast turned out to be simply copied from an Amur Bridge in Russian Khabarovsk.
Poroshenko being presented the fake ‘new’ bridge project across the river Danube, Odessa Oblast:
The photoshopped ‘international’ Ukrainian bridge, a direct copy of the REAL Russian bridge across Amur in Khabarovsk Krai, Siberia. This fake bridge is supposed to ‘easily’ connect Ukraine with Romania and multiple countries of the Balkans and E. Europe.
The REAL Russian bridge across Amur, Khabarovsk Krai, Siberia. Completely remodeled in 1999-2009.
No surprise. The major brain drain in
#Ukraine since late 1980s resulted in inability to create anything original. Hence resorting to extremism and Nazism, and the only commodity that sells well: #Russophobia
Do you know what the major problem here is: during the USSR days Ukraine was one of the most, if not the most developed of the Soviet republics! While both Russia and Ukraine went through the turbulent and wild ’90s, in Russia Putin and his team reversed the rampant wholesale lotting of the country by oligarchs and Western interests, while in Ukraine this process never stopped, and accelerated in the 2000s. The rich Soviet heritage carried Ukraine till now, along with subsidies by Russia. But not any more.
Along with Ukraine’s de-industrialization and de-humanization, most of the people with brains, talent, reason, know-how and zest for life, left. There is no one remaining in Ukraine to create anything original, unless and until RUSSIA infuses Ukraine again with the life force.
And seeing what’s happening in and around Ukraine, at this point Russians don’t feel like it.

**Attempts to re-write history and reverse Russian victory in WWII are intensifying. These re-writing attempts are coming from all kinds of countries, including Ukraine, Poland, Romania, the Baltics, US, Germany, etc. And even some of the young people in Russia are beginning to forget the truth. Humans are funny and their memory is short. This amnesia always results in a self-fulfilling prophecy otherwise known as ‘karma.’ This is why memory is so important. After all, ‘those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it.’
So we don’t forget, and can remind others — here’s a short, but important lesson from me:
75th Anniversary of the Victory in Stalingrad
Why was Stalingrad so important, why is it studied in all military colleges around the world and why is it arguably the most famous battle ever fought?
The city formerly known as Stalingrad is now called Volgograd (which means: the City on Volga River). A major commemorative parade took place today, Feb 2, 2018, in Volgograd (Stalingrad).
On June 22, 1941, at 4am, when people slept, Hitler’s Germany and their allies attacked the USSR simultaneously on all fronts. The Great Patriotic War began. Hitler’s troops moved relentlessly and to quickly through the territories of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia.
They were stopped only near Moscow and Leningrad, but at a huge cost. The German advancement meanwhile continued elsewhere, as town after town and city after city fell, despite the troops’ and population’s heroic defense. In 1942 Hitler was advancing on most fronts and Germans were reporting that they could already see Volga ahead of them. If they crossed the major water artery of Russia, the Volga River, this would mean a nearly unencumbered access to the following major prize: The industrial Russian hub of the Urals. And from the Urals, they could advance to Siberia, with its oil and natural resource riches, and that would be the end of Russia and the USSR.
That’s why Stalingrad was the last and final stand. The phrase that made it into all history books was: “There is no land for us beyond Volga.” This is what officers told their troops. There is no land for us beyond this point. Germans cannot be allowed to cross Volga at any cost. It was a fight of the magnitude never before known by the world. It was the most devastating war humanity ever experienced, and the cost to both Russian/Soviet civilians and troops was obsene and staggering. The amount of self-sacrifice and heroism was out-of-this-world. There was no choice: if Germans crossed Volga, it would be the end. They had to be stopped.
The outcome of that battle and entire WWII, the Russian/Soviet victory in it saved the entire world — and that means you, You and YOU, by the way. All at the expense of MILLIONS of RUSSIAN and SOVIET LIVES!
While General Friedrich Paulus, the commander of the 6th German Army was preparing to toast the victory of Stalingrad, Russian generals were preparing their counter-attack plan. Rumor has it that Hitler was so confident in Paulus’ success that he promoted him to field marshal just before the day Paulus surrendered together with his army to the Russian Army.
More hilarious details from Wikipedia:
Paulus surrendered in Stalingrad on 31 January 1943, the same day on which he was informed of his promotion to field marshal by Adolf Hitler. Hitler expected Paulus to commit suicide, repeating to his staff that there was no precedent of a German field marshal ever being captured alive. While in Soviet captivity during the war, Paulus became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime and joined the Soviet-sponsored National Committee for a Free Germany. He moved to East Germany in 1953.
Might this be a lesson for new aggressors?
The unexpected by both Germany/Axis allies and US/UK Allies Soviet victory in the Battle of Stalingrad in 1942-43 not only shocked the world, but it completely turned around the fates of WWII and Nazi Germany. The beginning of Hitler’s demise took place in Stalingrad. In the Great Stalingrad Cauldron, Russians surrounded and took prisoner over a hundred thousand of German troops.
But what very few people know is that the actual brilliant Soviet Stalingrad counter-attack plan was initially much grander and it included several broad fronts, down to Caucasus. If the whole plan succeeded, most German troops would have been surrounded and WWII could have ended a year or two earlier. The plan succeeded only partially, and after Stalingrad there was a number of other giant battles on the Soviet territory, plus hundreds and hundreds of smaller ones. In these battles the two titan armies clashed: one in order to conquer and enslave, and another to protect and liberate the Motherland.
The largest tank battle of WWII was the Battle of Kursk, July-August 1943, when Germans gathered all the resources they could in order to regain advantage. They failed miserably.
The Battle of Kursk, also known as the Arch of Kursk (Russian: Kurskaya Duga), had its own legendary ‘aha’ moment, when the well-oiled German war machine suddenly came to a screeching halt as thousands of state-of-the-art, awe-inspiring and menacing German tanks stopped, as if turned off by God’s invisible hand. For 20 minutes they helplessly watched as Russian tanks were quickly catching up to them in the giant battlefield, which would eventually become the Germans’ grave. This mysterious event took place in the stretch of the core central Russian steppes known as ‘the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly.’ The mystical mass sabotage of the German hardware during the Kursk Battle helped ensure another crucial victory for the USSR and another devastating defeat for Nazi Germany, from which it never recovered.
But the advancement of the German army was first stopped in Stalingrad. And with every next battle, inch by inch Russian / Soviet people liberated their land from the brown plague of the German fascism and their allies.
Stalingrad was rebuilt from the complete ruins after the war ended, and the Battle of Stalingrad memorial complex was built on Mamayev Kurgan, on the banks of Volga. It consists of a number of monuments and mass graves of those who perished defending Russia.
The main monument is the towering statue, MOTHER RUSSIA, or The Motherland Calls (Russian: Родина-мать зовёт!, tr. Rodina-mat’ zavyot!). She is the reminder of the truth that can never be forgotten. (See the image on top.)

Warning! You may be shocked and may not believe your eyes at what you’ll see below. It may even turn your entire perception upside down, but keep reading!
Recently we’ve discussed what the sport has turned into in the past 20 or so years: REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games? In that report, of December 18, 2017, I said ‘Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz‘. There is no fairness and no hope of justice in sport at this time in our common reality. Pretty depressing, right?
For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.
True, there may be different vantage points and different interpretations of various events, and there has always been politics and geopolitics present in any Big sport.
You hear me often talk about multidimensional truths and the fact that we are transitioning into 4D. This means that everything that was a norm in 3D is changing. I would hope though, that things like honesty, honor and common decency will remain. It saddens me greatly that in our day and age these solid old notions have almost been rendered obsolete and useless. But let me assure you, they will always remain crucially important in any dimension and in any reality.
You may not believe it, but there was a time when the Olympic sport was honest, at least it made an effort to be so. And it was at the height of the Cold War.
1972, Munich Summer Olympics. American basketball is the best in the world. In the previous 36 years the US basketball team never lost, and at that moment in history US has won 63 straight games in Olympic competitions. And no wonder. After all, basketball is an original American sport, invented by a US college professor 150 years ago, who tied two fruit baskets in a college court and offered a new sporting competition to his students.
Unexpectedly, the young Soviet basketball team makes it to the Munich Olympic finals, after beating top contenders such as Cuba, to play against the US team. Throughout the game, both USSR and US go neck to neck, at an early point the USSR even being well ahead. After that the USA gains most points back, and again both go head to head. The match is nearly over and the USA is one point ahead, after 2 penalty throws give it 2 extra points. The score is USA 50 — USSR 49. The Soviet coach takes timeout 3 seconds before the end of game.
And then, something crazy begins to happen… Read the rest of this entry

I just thought it was hilarious how poor UK’s Foreign Sec Boris Johnson kept squirming, trying to find his way out of his previous ugly comments, when he put his foot in his mouth on more than one occasion. Just stop embarrassing yourself, Boris!
Lavrov – Johnson joint press conference excerpts:
Johnson: Russia meddled in UK referendum, but was unsuccessful, admit it Sergey!
Lavrov: Of course, Russia was not successful. Nothing happens when no one meddles. One won’t succeed if one doesn’t meddle (applause and laughter from the audience).
Lavrov: If Boris doesn’t contradict everything I say, his reputation in the UK will be ruined.
Johnson recently infamously compared Russia to Sparta — per him, undemocratic, closed, militant and totalitarian; the West, UK and US, in Johnson’s version of reality, are like Athens, democratic, open, peaceful and wonderful. When a journalist asked whether he stands by that statement, look at all the desperate squirming that happens. ‘No, I didn’t mean it, I referred to the USSR, not modern Russia, when I said that.’
Direct lie. Oh yes, you did, Boris, and you really did call black white and vice versa.
I also recall how last year Johnson was accusing Russia of causing and supporting war in Syria (!), while, according to him, UK did everything to stop that war (!) by proudly supporting the infamous White Helmets (those same White Helmets that were routinely photographed with ISIS fighters next to beheaded prisoners).
Lavrov: it wasn’t the USSR that glorified Sparta, it’s in fact the US who does.
Don’t believe your deceiving eyes and ears!
The most embarrassing moment of all: Johnson declares he is a ‘committed Russophile’ because… he is called ‘Boris.’
Actions speak louder than words, Boris!
But then again, just like in the US with Trump and his straitjacket, Dark State never sleeps and Johnson would indeed be crucified at home should he even attempt to be civil to Russia and Russians. That’s just sad…

The newly declassified documents compiled by the George Washington University prove what Russian leaders, from Gorbachev to Putin, asserted for years: US and German leaders promised Gorbachev and Soviet FM Shevarnadze that after the fall of the Berlin Wall and re-unification of Germany NATO would under no circumstances expand eastward and that the balance of power and national interests of Russia would be fully taken into account. Germany, under this agreement, was supposed to be a neutral country.
US authorities and NATO have always publicly denied the existence of this agreement, which was promptly broken by the US, Germany, EU and NATO. Recently, ex-ambassador to Russia under Obama and a well-known Russophobe Michael McFaul, in an interview to an Estonian news service said that the assertion that NATO broke the promise given to Russians not to expand east is just a myth. As the documents prove, Russians were telling the truth, and US/Germany were indeed lying.
The evidence presented in the video above shows without a shadow of a doubt that US/Germany/EU/NATO lied and swindled Russia and the USSR. The temporary weakness of Russia was used as an excuse to break promises. Moreover, Germany never paid in full the agreed upon compensation for the withdrawal of Soviet troops, and we are talking billions of euros (plus close to 30 years worth of intrest!). This Germany denies as well, but I’m sure the documents to that effect will also come to light in due course. By the way, I have discussed this issue in Earth Shift Webinar 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA.
Incidentally, US as a rule appoints first-rate Russophobes, who pass for ‘Russia experts,’ as ambassadors to Russia. There was once an exception, but that single non-Russophobe ambassador didn’t survive in his post for too long and was quickly recalled.
You may remember my Twitter altercation with the so-called ‘Russia expert’ Michael McFaul. Read what happened here: “I never orchestrated color revolution in Russia” My Twitter exchange with US ex-ambassador McFaul. Of course he did — a well-known fact in Russia, But it’s like Robert De Niro said in ‘Wag the Dog’ — ‘deny, deny, deny.’ They’ll always deny everything, unless they are caught red-handed, and even in that case those slippery ones will somehow squirm their way out of a tight spot.
McFaul has a large Twitter following consisting of first-rate Russophobes, many of them unfortunately Russian-speaking, such as the direct enemies of Putin, Ukraine nazis and nationalists, run-away oligarchs living in London and US, and Russian pro-West opposition.
In the wake of the Russian Olympic ban, a couple of days ago McFaul wrote that Russians should know that the Russian team, flag and anthem ban are all because of bad Putin. It is Putin who is to blame for the Russian athletes’ predicament, he proclaimed. In doing so, he: 1. confirmed that Russian athletes’ ban is politically motivated, 2. revealed fully who he is working for. It is clear that the whole ‘Russian Olympic ban’ psyop has been designed to divide Russian society and to try to damage Putin’s reputation before the upcoming Russian elections 2018. I am preparing a whole big report on what’s up — to be published soon! Stay tuned!

Like rice without Kimchi or football without Spain: S. Koreans on potential Russia ban from 2018 Olympics:
And how do YOU feel about this falsified anti-Russia doping scandal?
What about the legalized doping by American athletes, including world and olympic champions, who are being shielded from responsibility? How about the double and triple standards IOC, WADA and various Western-oriented countries, as well as those countries’ athletes, display towards Russian athletes?
Have the West, and humans in general, forgotten and forsaken everything the Olympics ever stood for?
What about the witch hunt against everything Russian in the West?
Disgusted yet? I am — very.
Is it time to abolish WADA, IOC and professional sports, completely taken over by the US, UK, Canada and Australia, who dictate their own rules, with no room for anyone else?
Is it time for THE GREAT EARTH SHIFT in recreation, amateur and big sports? Is it time to change how these are practiced and who benefits? Is it time to take politics, negative human ego, greed and pride out of sports?
Isn’t sport supposed to bring people together and make them soar to new heights? But the way it is practiced all it does is divide and suppress.
Is it time for Russia (of which I wrote as early as 2015) to ditch Olympics and organize alternative Games, perhaps recreating the very successful experience of the Soviet Goodwill Games?
Does the sport, the way it is practiced by most, bring out the worst in humans? Is it something that is low-calibrated and outdated?

This is post 2 in my Russian / Soviet Music for Posterity series. This entire month I’m dedicating to two major events:
- The Mystery of the Russian Revolution (Centennial of the Russian 1917 Revolution)
- Perhaps a bit more modest, but a notable event in my book 😉 — my release of EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA, the powerful culmination of the Multidimensional Geopolitics Series.
In this post I have collected for you some very cool YouTube clips showcasing the main Russian / Soviet anthem, as well as the alternative ‘people’s anthems,’ so to speak. These are the kinds of songs that not only outlived the USSR, but also remain people’s favorites, touching millions in ways that cannot be described, despite huge changes Russia underwent in the past decades.
All of these were written in different times in the USSR. I choose the clips I personally prefer, as well as the ones containing English subs, so you can all follow the memorable lyrics. Coupled with the music, in my view, these are some of the most powerful songs ever written.
The real soul of any culture and any nation is expressed through the quality of their songs. These songs really stand out and they say a lot about the true nature and soul of Russia and the USSR.
That’s my opinion, and what’s yours? Don’t worry, it’s an open discussion, and if someone feels compelled to bash ‘those damn commies’ — as is so common for the sheeple — be my guest, although I would prefer a higher level of discussion and more intelligent comments than that.
As I’ve told you all before, it was never about communism — it was always about Russia The Great Balancer being a threat to the yang and aggressive West’s expansionism. Or as Lenin would have called it ‘Western imperialism’ — the same thing we today refer to as globalism, one world government and NWO. In other words, Lenin called it 100+ years ago.
Below there are three songs, and several versions of each. If you enjoy them, vote in the comment section which song and which version grabs you and why.
ANTHEM OF RUSSIA — OFFICIAL VERSION. (Note that it is the same anthem as the USSR’s, denoting continuity, but the lyrics have been somewhat modified — by the original Soviet lyrics author, Sergey Mikhalkov.)
ANTHEM OF RUSSIA – contemporary version. Crimea, 2015 — ENG SUBS
ANTHEM OF RUSSIA — cool flashmob on Red Square
ANTHEM OF RUSSIA – rock version
ALTERNATIVE/ POPULAR RUSSIAN ANTHEM 1 — VICTORY DAY (Soviet song dedicated to the difficult victory in WWII – The Great Patriotic War. One of the most popular Soviet/Russian songs ever written, still brings tears to people’s eyes.)
VICTORY DAY — Contemporary version, by original performer Lev Leshchenko. Notice the crowd of young people singing along!
VICTORY DAY — flashmob in Novosibirsk, Siberia on May 9.
VICTORY DAY — with ENG SUBS
ALTERNATIVE/ POPULAR RUSSIAN ANTHEM 2 — SO VAST IS MY MOTHERLAND. This easily could have been the official Russian anthem, if Russia already didn’t have one of the best anthems out there.
The original SO VAST IS MY MOTHERLAND performance, episode from the hit 1936 Soviet film Circus (Цирк), 1936. This is the story of a white American performer who arrives from the racist USA to Moscow to perform her dangerous circus act, and who falls in love with a handsome Russian, while being ashamed of having to hide from everyone her black baby… until she, to her great surprise, learns that in the USSR it’s not a problem at all.

EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6
This powerful webinar is the culmination of Lada Ray’s Multidimensional Geopolitics Series.
RELEASE: NOVEMBER 6, 2017!
THE PUTIN ENIGMA goes on sale on November 6 (no pre-orders)
Last week Russia unilaterally and voluntarily destroyed its LAST REMAINING chemical weapon, thus becoming chemical weapons FREE. The Soviet arsenal of chemical weapons, if ever used, could have destroyed the whole planet several times over.
This big and welcome news went absolutely unnoticed in the West, silenced completely by MSM and Western governments.
USA remains the BIGGEST and ONLY country with a huge stockpile of chemical weapons on the planet. USA’s chemical weapons today could destroy our planet and all life on it several times over. Yet, US is refusing to destroy them, despite previous agreements. The date of the destruction of said weapons has been postponed from 2007 till 2023.
Putin at Valdai 2017: US Refusing To Destroy Its Chemical Weapons. Yet Russia Did It!
Moreover, in the 1990s’ Yeltsin agreed to give US the stockpiles of the Soviet Uranium. We are not going to discuss how shortsighted that was, except that it had been done with a naive idea of fostering cooperation and good will of the West. Instead, as Putin says, US and EU repaid Russia by bombing Serbia, Russia’s ally.
Anyone naive enough to extend a hand and share with the West — as in Western governments and elites — should know how it ends. Any gesture of good will and friendship is perceived as a weakness and permission to cause damage to the country that has been too trusting.
By the way, Ukraine should do well remembering this. The problem is, Ukraine elites are too sold-out and they only pursue their personal enrichment self-interest. Read EU Trouble: Why Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and Romania Support Separatism in Ukraine.
Putin at Valdai 2017: Russia Gave You Uranium, You Repaid Us By Bombing Serbia
The story of Yeltsin giving up Russian uranium stockpiles to the US in the 1990s is very cloak and dagger, and it is educational in its own right. I’ll talk more about it, with a new angle, in the upcoming Earth Shift Webinar 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA!

Zapad 2017 Russia-Belarus Army Exercise and China-Russia Naval Drills near Korea
Pre-planed Russia-Belarus joint Zapad 2017 War Games ran from September 14 to 20th, 2017. The official number of participating troops, according to Russian and Belorussian official sources, was less than 13 thousand.
There are several things you should know about the army drills usually referred to as ‘Zapad Exercise.’ Zapad drills started in the 1970s USSR. Since then they were conducted every 2-4 years, on average. Last one was in 2013. The largest Zapad Exercise took place in 1980s, when 100,000 Soviet troops took part in Zapad drills.
The Western officials, notably, German defense minister, NATO, as well as Swedish officials and presidents of Poland and the Baltic states, have been convulsing in hysterics since July 2017. According to German war minister, not 12.5 thousand, but 100,000 troops took place in the exercise. Moreover, according to accusations, Russians had a clandestine plan to sneak those extra troops into Belarus under the cover of the night and leave them there! Please explain to me how exactly do you ‘sneak in’ 100,000 troops plus hardware? Is it the same method used to ‘sneak in’ the invisible Russian troops into Donbass?
Furthermore, the devious Russian grand plan is apparently to use these secret troops to attack poor, defenseless Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia — and yeah, Sweden, too! Never mind all those NATO/US bases stationed there.
You probably won’t be surprised to find out that much of this ‘intel’ was supplied to NATO, Germany and others by… Poroshenko and Kiev junta. Just goes to show the level of professionalism and level of intelligence of the German defense ministry and NATO.
Of course, they want to believe this tale with all their might. Why? Because they are looking in the mirror, but are afraid to admit to themselves that it’s their own reflection they are looking at. It’s so much easier to blame everything on Russia. It’s what they’d do in a heartbeat ~ in other words, invade Russia ~ if only Russia didn’t have all those pesky nukes and other cutting-edge weapons they don’t know how to counter.
Don’t believe me; just take a quick look at history. In the past several hundred years Russia was repeatedly invaded by: Poland, Lithuania, Sweden, Germany, Great Britain, France, USA, Romania. In other words, the same countries that yell the loudest about ‘Russian threat,’ and the same countries that form NATO!
So, number one: Zapad 2017 was a pre-scheduled exercise, agreed upon 4 years ago, according to Russian sources.
To give you an idea of what’s behind the name, the word ‘zapad’ means in Russian ‘west.’ This is the type of exercise regularly conducted in the western regions of Russia, or USSR in previous days. There is also a similar exercise, also conducted regularly, which is called ‘Tsenter,’ meaning ‘center.’ Those drills take place in central Russia.
Incidentally, the word ‘Zapad’ is pronounced with accent on FIRST ‘a,’ not second, as I hear it pronounced by the Western MSM. Accent on second sounds just too funny, and has a completely different meaning.
Number two: NATO’s Anakonda 2016 exercise took place last year along the borders of Russia and Belarus and it was the largest NATO exercise since the Cold War. The stated purpose of Anakonda war games was to deflect ‘aggression’ by Russia. It was defensive in name only. NATO especially employed RUSSIAN-SPEAKING statists to practice on them various invasion, hostage-taking and interrogation techniques. Usually, war games are not supposed to state the nationality or exact identity of a supposed enemy. During Anakonda 2016 NATO, with avid insistence by Poland, broke this cardinal rule of international relations.
Therefore, even if Zapad 2017 was simply Russia’s and Belarus’s reaction to the outrageous and insulting muscle-flexing by NATO, they are perfectly within their right to do so! The only way to keep the NATO beast at bay is to constantly remind it that Russian invasion is way out of their league, no matter how much they dream of it. The result of each invasion against Russia always ends the same way. I almost dare them to try. The result will be very predictable.
All my readers, as well as all normal and reasonable Western countries’ residents, this one is for you!
Don’t you see what’s happening? NATO, US and Germany’s hysteria notwithstanding, don’t you notice that Poland and three tiny countries located in the Baltics (Lithuania, first and foremost, with its warmongering hitler-in-a-skirt Gribauskaite, also Latvia and Estonia), plus Ukraine’s junta, are trying to engineer a war between the West and Russia. By inventing the ‘Russian threat,’ continuously provoking Russia and escalating hysteria and fear-mongering, they are attempting to ensure that large Western countries, particularly US, France and Germany are tied into an obligation to defend them. They want insurance that if they provoke Russia into responding through their actions, US/Germany/NATO will treat them as victims, not as passive-aggressive provocateurs they are. This was the way WWI started: a manipulated provocation in a small country triggered the major countries’ clash in global war!
In fact, we have seen this so many times! For example, Poland was the earliest aggressor in WWII, who invaded Czechoslovakia together with Hitler, yet it insists it’s a poor victim of German and ‘Russian’ aggression. Saakashvili’s Georgia attacked S. Ossetia, yet it insisted that Russia attacked Georgia — and the likes of Merkel, BBC and CNN just ate it up. The same happened in 2014 with the Kiev junta – and this lie is still ongoing!
All the Dark State / Deep State forces notwithstanding, don’t you see that these secondary countries are trying to manipulate large countries, provoking a massive military confrontation? And the silly Western MSM and sheeple just keep parroting it.
There are other three factors that are important, but not primary. Still, I want to mention them.
- Pentagon and various weapons manufacturers, as well as similar war ministries and manufacturers in Europe want more money. To constantly receive that money they need to keep public in fear of an imaginary enemy. For them Russia always played the role of such convenient enemy. In fact, when Trump began talking about lessening USA’s contribution to NATO, EU countries decided to give US a bribe in the form of more weapons contracts and war games. The elements of this bribe are more US hardware in the EU and more US troops in Eastern Europe. This bribe has proven extremely useful in keeping the gluttonous US military-industrial complex happy, and therefore, in keeping USA fully invested in NATO.
- The bloated machine of NATO itself is having a hard time justifying its measly existence. Every time there is a talk of NATO outliving its usefulness, the sold-out Western MSM comes up with some sort of threat from Russia.
- By constantly maintaining the fear in their populace, US/EU/NATO countries can distract their populations from real problems, such as migrant crisis, terrorist attacks and the growing rape rate by migrants. The West is in the decline mode, albeit slowly. By maintaining this constant fear of an imaginary attack by Russia, they hope to consolidate their sheeple around powers that be, so the sheeple won’t begin rebelling and questioning the obvious.
And here is another great example of the West’s double standards:
Just check out this extensive Wikipedia article on Zapad 2017 exercise. And just check out the anti-Russian tone of this entry! To remind everyone, Wikipedia is supposed to be impartial and neutral.
Zapad 2017 (Russian: «Запад-2017», Belarusian: Захад-2017) is a joint strategic military exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation and Belarus (the Union State) that formally began on 14 September 2017 and ended on 20 September 2017, in Belarus as well as in Russia‘s Kaliningrad Oblast and Russia′s other north-western areas. According to the information made public by the Defence Ministry of Belarus prior to the exercise, fewer than 13,000 personnel of the Union State are to take part in the military maneuvers, a number that does not trigger mandatory formal notification and invitation of observers under the OSCE‘s Vienna Document. Western analysts, however, believed in July 2017 that the total number of Russian troops, security personnel and civilian officials to be involved in the broader war-games will range from 60,000 to 100,000, which would make them Russia’s largest since the Cold War. Since 2016, concerns have been voiced in a number of NATO countries over Russia’s suspected ulterior motives and objectives in connection with the exercise.
And now I challenge you to find a similar Wikipedia article on Anakonda 2016, that will honestly say that there were ulterior motives in that NATO exercise, and that Russia raised concerns over the fact that Russian-speaking people were used in it as hostage props for training purposes!
I was actually curious to see how the tone of such article would be different from the Zapad 2017 entry. I typed in Google: ‘Anakonda 2016 wikipedia,’ and this is the page I got! There is only an entry in German, written in a very different tone. It appears that the relevant entry in English was blocked!

Incidentally, per international rules and unlike US/EU/NATO in Anakonda 2016, Russia/Belarus used FICTIONAL countries in their war games. Another thing worth noting: Zapad 2017, unlike Anakonda 2016, was conducted deep into Belarus territory and far from its western border. In other words, as usual it is clear who is the aggressor, and who only seeks to defend.
At almost the same time as Zapad 2017, joint Russia-China naval drills were conducted near the Korean Peninsula. This is clearly a reaction to Donald Trump’s threat to destroy N. Korea. Just to save his neck and to be on the good side of the Dark State and the establishment, Trump is ready to plunge the world into a nuclear war.
Although not happy with N. Korea’s behavior, clearly, Russia and China won’t let US strike against it. The only way US can be warned not to intervene militarily is to demonstrate Russia and China’s joint resolve and military capability.

As I predicted — and sadly, my predictions materialized all too well and all too quickly, Trump has fully succumbed to pressure and behaves like a normal warmongering US president. In fact, he is on his way to surpass Obama, that typical war-mongering Nobel Peace Prize laureate. As I said a few months ago: forget Trump, don’t hope he’ll do anything good that is worth mentioning, and write him off as just another failure.

How fitting that the same ‘Ugly American’ traits were on full display in Trump’s speech, along with the belief/threat that spending more money on military is a substitute for diplomacy. How eerily prescient that the authors in 1958 negatively contrasted American “refusal to integrate” (today called American Exceptionalism) to the “polished abilities of Eastern Bloc (primarily Soviet) diplomacy”.
