Ukraine Events Heating up and Accelerating

ESR2 NEW & expanded triple feature+

Dear friends,

I thought this would be a great time to summarize some news coming in from Ukraine and from other places.

The events in Ukraine are beginning to heat up and manifest in an accelerated fashion. The Kiev junta and oligarchs are getting nervous and the people are beginning to awaken. At the same time, the ukro-nazi element is also activating. My prediction about Ukraine turning around between 2016 and 2018 is beginning to materialize, but unfortunately, with a lot of hardship for the population. The problem is, also per my prediction, that the population has to go through this hardship and the economy has to get destroyed, in order for the people to awaken and start acting.

The events are developing very swiftly: yesterday ex-president Viktor Yanukovich testified in the trial against the Berkut police. Berkut is accused of killing a number of activists during the Kiev Maidan. Kiev tried very hard to prevent this testimonial and the hearing was sabotaged by Ukraine’s ministry of interior and ukro-nazi thugs. But it did happen, with some scandalous revelations. Yanukovich promises more to come.

More high-level Ukraine operatives, preparing to blow up military targets, were arrested in Crimea. To date, Russian FSB neutralized a huge network of spies and terrorists, however, the work continues.

Not being able to cause real damage in Crimea and to somehow get back at Russia, Kiev kidnapped two Russian servicemen of Ukrainian origin from Crimea. The story is a bit like a thriller and I’ll talk about it as well.

After all the failures, no doubt in an attempt to save face and show how tough they are, in the beginning of December, Kiev threatens to do missile launches near Crimea and breaching the Russian airspace, which are bound to generate a danger for the civilian aircraft and tourism. MH17 comes to mind, as well as the 2001 catastrophe when Ukraine training missile shot down Russian civilian plane flying from Israel, killing all passengers on board. Kiev never issued a clear admission of its responsibility. Most recently, Kiev threatened civilian aircraft from Belarus with being shot down (I’ll talk about all this in the upcoming video).

Russian government sent a warning to Kiev against conducting such drills near Crimea. Will Kiev listen? The unfortunate truth is that madmen and corrupt and inadequate imbeciles have usurped power in Ukraine. The only thing that makes them listen to anything is when they are personally, or their assets, are endangered.

Yet again, EU said NO to visa free regime with Ukraine – something Poroshenko promised his compatriots before the end of November.

Eurovision is threatening to take away Eurovision 2017 hosting from Ukraine, since Kiev is behind schedule for preparations. The admission was made that there is simply no money for such an expensive event.

A very difficult winter is coming, and protests in Kiev are underway. Not all are awakened yet, but little by little people are losing their fear of the regime.

There is much more news from Ukraine, Moldova and Pridnestrovie. I plan to release some videos, covering the most important events and discussing how my earlier predictions are coming along.

Also, good news from Syria: 40% of East Aleppo has been liberated by Syrian Army with Russian help.

The situation in the US post-Trump-election continues being tense and confused, with parties blaming each other of falsifications and Stein/Bernie demanding recount. Some predict the electoral college delegates revolt on Dec. 17. I plan a very important video update on that. I have new and updated predictions, which I want to share with you all. Please stay tuned!

PUTIN & RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS

THE CRUCIAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RUSSIAN & UKRAINE OLIGARCHS

Russian oligarchs

Russia went through the oligarch infestation and wars in the 1990s. I worked at Smith Barney as financial consultant at the time and I managed some of the Russian oligarch assets; therefore, I am quite familiar with the Russian oligarch class. I described some of the oligarchs and their modus operandi in my two novels, GOLD TRAIN and THE EARTH SHIFTER.

Yeltsin was under the oligarch influence. Being a complete child when it came to economy and finance, he had no idea that the oligarchs, together with their Western handlers, were leading the country into abyss.

Although it is not the focus of this report, it must be noted that many, although not all, Russian oligarchs (and of course, Ukrainian too) served as agents for the Western shadow interests. The name of the Rothschilds is usually mentioned in relation to Khodorkovsky. Some acted on behalf of Western conglomerates, such as Exxon, Shell and others. That said, I strongly suspect that some of the former Russian oligarchs weren’t fronting Western oligarchs at all. In fact, they were direct assets of the CIA, Mossad or MI6. One such example is Jewish-Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, who had Yeltsin’s ear. Throughout the ’90s there was no bigger name and bigger oligarch in Russia than Boris Berezovsky, until Putin got on his case.

After that Beresovsky quickly fled to London. He was an agent of MI6 and CIA, and possibly of Mossad as well. Berezovsky’s story is very remarkable. A couple of years ago, he wrote a secret letter to Putin, begging for pardon and for the possibility of returning back home to Russia. According to many witnesses, in his later years, he missed his homeland terribly, always asking for treats to be brought to him from Russia and greedily listening to the Russian news. The letter was sent with a trusted messenger and Putin got it. Berezovsky could tell a lot of things, including how and by whom the wholesale looting of Russia was organized in the ‘90s. Shortly after, Berezovsky suddenly ‘hung’ himself in his London mansion.

This wasn’t the original story. Originally, the UK authorities were supposed to blame Putin and Russians for Berezovsky’s death, just as it happened a few years prior with ex-KGB Litvinenko. Russian authorities got the wind of what was to come and quickly produced Berezovsky’s letter to Putin, in which he was asking for pardon and return home in exchange for spilling the beans on his handlers. Then, the hastily put together ‘self-hanging’ theory emerged, despite strange bruises on Berezovsky’s neck.

After Putin came to power in 2000, the status quo in Russia changed. It shifted gradually, but Putin let everyone know that he would not allow the wholesale looting of Russia any more. Putin slowly but surely restructured tax laws, making oligarchs and foreign oil interests pay taxes – something that, amazingly, Yeltsin and his sold-out advisors were unable to figure out for 8 years in power!

Those who didn’t want to play ball went to jail, like Khodorkovsky. Others, like Berezovsky, fled the country, taking their assets with them. The Western howling was deafening for years, accusing Russia of the roll-back of democracy and a return to dictatorship. Of course by then I left Smith Barney and generally US corporate world, having understood what was happening and having been disgusted with all that I discovered.

Russian oligarchs were losing power and influence in Russia throughout 2000s. Khodorkovsky was in jail on official charges of money laundering and tax evasion (all true), but in reality, for trying to execute a coup d’état and for attempting to sell the country to the US. (Incidentally, I write about that in THE EARTH SHIFTER; oligarch Konukovksy in the book is modeled after Khodorkovsky). The last oligarch who attempted to obtain the power in the country officially, via presidential elections, was Mikhail Prokhorov in 2012. One of Russia’s richest men, he ran against Putin. Prokhorov got a surprise almost 8%. Putin got almost 64%.

After winning, Putin invited all former presidential candidates who ran against him, aka, leaders of opposition parties, to his Kremlin office and consulted with them on various matters, making sure their voices were heard. This was basically the end of Prokhorov’s political ambitions. I think Prokhorov isn’t dumb. Hopefully, he understood he had no chance against such man.

I usually say that the class of oligarchs ceased to exist in Russia in 2013, but it may have happened as early as 2012, after Prokhorov’s failed bid. Presently, Russia has plenty of rich people and lots of business people. The business class is quite active and there are lots of those who have made their fortunes by building their business from scratch through their own wit and hard work, after the roaring ’90s.

Prokhorov isn’t one of them. He is the owner of Norilsk Nickel, which was the giant Soviet-built enterprise and the world’s largest producer of nickel and palladium. Norilsk Nickel was one of the victims of the ’90s privatization, having been given away literally for free. Prokhorov also owns gold-producing companies. All that he acquired on the cheap during the 1990s wholesale robbery of the country, when prized Soviet properties were sold for pennies. That said, Prokhorov has proven to be a very good manager, and responsible owner. He pays his taxes and conducts his business transparently.

Here is Putin’s plan that is now bearing fruit: oligarchs who acquired their properties that way, but who proved later that they managed them well, cared about their workers, paid taxes, didn’t launder money, conducted honest business and didn’t try to undermine existing authorities, could continue owning what they had, as long as they invested into the country.

I foresee additional change coming soon. Some are proposing a one-time, retroactive tax on assets acquired during the ‘90s for an unfairly low price. These former oligarchs may be required to pay a fee of varying amount.

I like this idea. My advice to Russians to do it this way:

This retroactive tax must be calculated based on a variety of factors, including the fair and prevailing global asset value at the time of purchase, how much the asset has been developed since, how much out-of-pocket money has been invested to develop such asset, and how much more profitable a plant or company may have become. If a person invested a lot of their own money, hired additional employees and expanded the company, they may not owe anything. Many Russian business people expanded and modernized their Soviet inheritance and made it pay.

If they just sat on their acquisition, doing nothing with it and simply milking the original Soviet asset, they should owe a lot, with interest. Some may have to sell their company or give it back to the Russian State, to repay what they owe. I can tell you that this proposed new tax could do wonders for the Russian business class investing in their companies to avoid paying tax, therefore boosting Russian productivity and GDP! I hope this tax is enacted soon.

Oligarch Roman Abramovich, Governor of Chukotka

Roman Abramovich is a great example of how Putin got some of the oligarchs to invest back into the State. Abramovich is one of those who got filthy rich on the unfair ’90s privatization. He was a Berezovsky crony. But later, there was a falling out. Not only that, Abramovich apparently grabbed some of Berezovsky’s assets when the latter fell out of favor, for which Berezovsky sued Abramovich in London court.

One thing Abramovich did much better than Berezovsky was to work with others and achieve a compromise. Putin told him: fine, you can keep your assets, which you manage pretty well, but under one condition. You become the governor of Chukotka. Historically, in Russia wealthy people gave back to the country by serving the State and helping locals.

The Chukotka peninsula is one of the easternmost Russian territories, which has been neglected for the past 25 years. There is no ready access to oil or gas there, with a lot of pristine wilderness. The population is rather small and climate is very harsh, therefore developing infrastructure is very expensive. Consequently, there was no interest in developing it, like for instance, on the nearby Island of Sakhalin.

If you ask me, it’s actually a great idea to preserve some pristine corners of the globe, unspoiled by humans. But locals do demand modern conveniences.

Abramovich had to demonstrate his worth as a governor to earn his ‘pardon,’ so to speak. During his tenure Abramovich invested his own money into building roads, renovating the city and building hospitals, schools and new companies in order to give locals steady employment. There was a situation when Abramovich had to pay regional salaries out of pocket and he had to shell out to fix housing too. Basically, the region was fixed up using his own money. After several years as Chukotka governor, locals started talking about naming one of their streets, or even a town, after Abramovich as a thank you. This was what Putin wanted to hear – Abramovich did a good job; he earned his pardon.

When Medvedev became president, Abramovich appealed to him to be ‘let go.’ Medvedev at first said he was still needed for the second term as governor since he was doing so well, but I think after some consultations with Putin, he did let him go. After that, Abramovich moved to London, preserving his money and the good will of the Russian government.

This is a very good example of how Putin put the oligarchs, their business skills and their money to work for the good of the State and society. He didn’t fight with them, he didn’t take their assets and money away (except for Khodorkovsky and a few others, who committed direct treason). These drastic measures would have been disruptive for the economy and would have created an even bigger backlash against Russia in the West.

Instead, Putin made the oligarchs serve the country they once robbed.

Sochi Olympics

Another example of how he did it was Sochi. Putin compelled practically all biggest Russian oligarchs to invest in the Sochi 2014 Winter Games: from building hotels and sports venues to financing high-speed railroad, trains, new port and train station. This is who paid for a chunk of the $50bln invested. As is well-known, most Olympics don’t pay for themselves since many venues don’t find enough usage after the Olympics are over. If Sochi doesn’t pay for itself, a lot of it will be the former oligarchs’ loss. If it does – good for them, they will make profit.

Ukraine oligarchs

Ukraine oligarchs are very different. They never invested in anything, just demanding more and more eggs from the golden goose they stole from the people. As a result, they killed that golden goose.

Certainly, in the case of Russia we also have a president who isn’t only intelligent and balanced, but who is also a wise leader of a sovereign country, who cares a lot for the well-being of his people and land. It is no accident that US, France and some other countries, have a movement, “Putin for President.” They want to borrow Putin for their respective countries. It is also no accident that Putin has recently topped the TIME 100 Readers’ Poll, leaving any competition far behind. More here: Vladimir Putin Steals the Show in TIME 100 Readers’ Poll.

Meanwhile, in Ukraine we have a regime that consists of foreign marionettes, bandits and fascists. At best they are incompetent, at worst – simply insane. For the past 24 years, Ukraine has been under oligarch/raider/mafia control. In addition to that, it is now under the control of the violent and greedy fascist gangs. As if all that wasn’t enough, Ukraine is firmly under foreign management.

Tragically, Ukraine has no possibility of resolving any oligarch-related problems under such circumstances. The euro-maidan slogans were ‘away with oligarchs.’ Instead, they got one of the biggest oligarchs of them all – Poroshenko – as their president.

Ukraine oligarchs finally understood that they were also losing from the war with Donbass and standoff with Russia. At least some of the oligarchs, whose assets are threatened and whose power is dwindling, wouldn’t mind the end of war in Donbass. They may be even trying to pressure Poroshenko to keep peace and agree to federalization. Poroshenko may even be interested in that himself.

But there are two other forces in Ukraine: 1. ukro-nazis and their armed battalions that are ready to go to Kiev and start another maidan; 2. US, whose interest is to keep as much turmoil and disorder in Ukraine as possible for as long as possible.

It is a further tragedy of Ukraine that oligarchs themselves have created the monster, inviting and encouraging these dark forces. Karma is a bitch – oligarchs can’t win against those two forces. Therefore, however you look at it, the fights between all factions will continue until… all these ugly and dark forces are booted out of Ukraine by a popular uprising.

The rich Soviet inheritance isn’t the only thing that has ended in Ukraine. For years, the oligarchs and the rest of Ukrainians lived off leaching the Russian transit gas to the EU, which they stole from the pipes. Ukraine also lived better than economically predetermined because of the heavy discount on Russian gas it received for years as another left over vestige of the Soviet system, when Russians often robbed themselves to give to the republics. But all of it ended with the advent of euro-maidan and war on all fronts against Russia. Gas price is up and Russian loans no more. As a result, Ukraine is facing total collapse.

Ukraine in this state can only be unified if there is war. During active war in Donbass the oligarchs all seemed united in their hatred against Donbass and Russia. The shift in priorities occurred once the shaky peace process was established. Russia insisted on peace negotiations because Donbass was in desperate need of reprieve for its citizens. But apart from that, the brilliance of the Russian insistence on peace process was that the moment peace started spiders started devouring each other.

In truth though, the country is so filled with energy of anger, confusion and confrontation that this destructive energy has to be directed against someone. If it’s not directed against Donbass, it has to be directed against other forces. The problem is that with very weak central government and almost non-existed legal system, including inadequate private property protection laws, it becomes extremely destructive.

Oligarchs are used to easy money they stole during the ’90s privatization robbery and through later re-distributions of property. Now, with the dying economy, they are staring into abyss. They are losing assets and their cash flow is catastrophically drying up. Bankruptcy is looming.”

Roman Abramovich is the owner of the British football club Chelsea. From left to right: Chelsea and Abramovich celebrate winning a trophy; anti-Abramovich protest by ukro-nazis in the UK; the oligarch scandal – Boris Berezovsky sues Abramovich in the UK court with similar accusations as ukro-nazis to the left. Berezovsky accused Abramovich in taking his part of the joint business and in being Putin’s lackey, to put it simply. UK court didn’t find substantiated evidence confirming Berezovsky’s complaint. Shortly after, Berezovsky secretly wrote to Putin asking for pardon in exchange for juicy intel against his US/UK bosses. After that, Berezovsky ‘committed suicide’ in his London home. This unlikely verdict was given by London police despite suspicious bruises on his neck.”

84% of Ukrainians Want Putin as Leader of Their Country

Here are some latest telling statistics from Ukraine:

The latest poll shows that 84% of Ukrainians want Russian President Vladimir Putin as the leader of their country. This effectively means that the vast majority of Ukrainians understand into what kind of abyss the Kiev junta is leading them.

Despite the overwhelming anti-Russian and anti-Putin propaganda spread by Kiev and Ukraine MSM, the population isn’t blind. Ukrainian people, most of whom are tired of war and want peace, start recalling the Chechen conflict and its swift and brilliant resolution by Putin. At the time Putin came in, he had on his hands the devastating Chechen war and all of Russia with destroyed economy and depressed population. Back in the 90s, I remember some Russians telling me dejectedly that the Chechen war would never end – and those people weren’t simpletons; to many well-known business people and analysts the Chechen war at the time seemed like a perma-conflict with no way out.

The conflict in Ukraine, to those who are ruled by emotions and lack perspective, also seems like a conflict without resolution. But it’s always darkest before the dawn.

Back then, Putin found the right person whom he entrusted the leadership of Chechnya; the agreements and necessary deals were struck and kept, the place was rebuilt and the entire situation was reversed to the point that the majority of Chechens are presently some of the biggest Russian patriots.

It is no wonder that Ukrainians want Putin. They should take the ticket and get in line.

Another poll suggests that presently 61% of Ukrainians want to leave their country permanently. Just two years ago, polls showed that such high percentage of those who wanted to emigrate only existed among the young generation. Now the population in general, including those who work and the elderly, want to leave the country. (Both poll numbers are from this interview (Rus).)

I explained previously that once Ukraine separated from Russia in 1991, people stopped believing in their country. Very quickly after, the most educated, thinking and capable people left. The vacuum was filled with inferior element from western and central Ukraine, who were purposefully appointed to top positions and who systematically removed the old, deeply cherished cultural and inter-generational connections with Russia and the Russian world, substituting them with invented lies. All this process was orchestrated and directed from abroad, by those from the US, Canada, Poland, Romania, Lithuania and Germany who wanted revenge and destruction of Russia and the Russian World.

The population of Ukraine under USSR was 54 mln people. Before 2014 it officially decreased to 45 million. However, in the past 23 years of ‘nezalezhnost’ = independence, 5-7 million Ukrainians have been working in Russia and probably 1.5-2 million in the West. Crimea and Donbass secession decreased the population by another 5-7 million. Another 3 million or so are refugees that left Ukraine for Russia or any other country they could. Therefore, the real population of Ukraine is now no more than 30 million people – down from 54 million in 1990.

Another bit of news: those anti-junta politicians and journalists of various political views who escaped from Ukraine after the 2014 coup are starting to organize an alternative government in exile. The organization, whose first conference took place in Moscow, is called the ‘Fund for the Salvation of Ukraine.’ It is headed by the former PM of Ukraine under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov. Unlike Yanukovich, Azarov is remembered positively in Ukraine and beyond for the quiet, but productive work he had done for the country. These are some long overdue, awkward first steps, and the people behind this alternative government are the old Ukraine politicians, who generally still have a decent reputation, such as Azarov, Vladimir Oleynik (MP from western Ukraine, presently in exile in Russia) and Igor Markov (MP from Odessa, now also in exile). Because of that, they may be capable of uniting various forces around them.

The country needs a completely new crop of politicians, who would be able to lead it into the future. The old crop may not be up to this task, but at least it is moving along. Except for Igor Markov, who is a younger and rather capable politician, these old political hands can be good instructors, taking the new politicians under their wing and allowing them to learn. There has been a talk about such development. The fact that it’s moving along indicates that the junta is feeling the pinch and its end is getting closer.

Recall my timeline for Ukraine’s complete turnaround: 2016-18.

Also recall what I said many times before: Ukraine can only be rebuilt and prosper in a union with Russia. Any attempts at dealings and mergers with the West on any level will bring Ukraine to destruction. However, after what happened, Russia won’t rush saving Ukraine this time.

Ukraine will have to provide some pretty good guarantees that it can be trusted, one of them being a complete weeding out of all malignant weeds. By weeding I mean getting rid of ukro-nazis, Western-ruled MSM, unfriendly oligarchs and US influence. This will be quite a feat and it will take some time. Another difficulty is that there really are no politicians in Ukraine who can accomplish it. Only DNR and LNR so far have people who can bring things to fruition.

Ukraine will have to produce the kind of people who are a match to the formidable task ahead.

The only thing… what is now called Ukraine will most likely bear a different name in several years time.

Nuland giving out cookies in Kiev

2014 Photo Op. Victoria Nuland, Assistant US Secretary of State in charge of Eurasia, gives out cookies to anti-Yanukovich euro-maidan protesters in Kiev – a direct interference of a foreign official in the affairs of a sovereign country. Yanukovich is to be soon unseated as legitimately elected president of Ukraine and forced to flee as a result of the February 22, 2014 coup. 

nuland_pyatt_ukraine 14

Kiev, 2014. Victoria Nuland and US ambassador to Ukraine Pyatt give out bread and hamburgers to Ukraine’s Berkut police. Just a few days later these same policemen will be burned, beaten and humiliated by ‘peaceful euro-maidan protesters.’ In December of 2013, Nuland famously bragged to the Washington Press Club that US spent $5 billion to ‘subvert Ukraine’ in its bid to weaken and sabotage Russia.

THE REAL SOURCE OF VICTORIA NULAND’S RUSSOPHOBIA: ‘EXCEPTIONAL’ AMERICAN IN 1982 SOVIET ODESSA

I left, perhaps the juiciest (and for me, the funniest) bit for last. To many people out there, Victoria Nuland, the woman who arrogantly and carelessly admitted in December 2013 that US spent $5 bln to subvert Ukraine and create anti-Russia out of it; the woman who orchestrated the Kiev maidan and violent coup; the woman who with a flick of her wrist dismissed and appointed Ukraine governments; the woman who said ‘f*ck Europe’ – is one scary American Zionist and neocon. To most, she is known as Assistant US State Secretary in charge of Eurasia. Her job is to go around subverting countries, organizing violent coups and instigating color revolutions.

But very few realize that she is in fact a small-minded, stuck up little b*tch who never grew up and who always enjoyed humiliating others. Oh, you know I wouldn’t say something like this lightly. I’ve known she is exactly that due to the energy she emanates and due to her calibration, which to some people seems too esoteric. Now I’ve got tangible proof – and it’s to die for!

You heard me right! Just like in the case of Poroshenko and his criminal daddy, it all goes back to Odessa, the city of my childhood. The story below references a well-known international young pioneer camp in Odessa. Summer camps for children were called ‘pioneer camps’ in the USSR. The camp was called Molodaya Gvardia (English: The Young Guard, reference to the young Komsomol/Communist members during the 1918 Civil War, who fought bravely). I knew that camp: it was located on the beach at the far-away outskirts of the city. I’ve never gone there myself, since I grew up five minutes from the beach and since I always preferred to travel and explore for my summer vacation. The story below mentions semechki, which means ‘roasted sunflower seeds’remember I once mentioned on FuturisTrendcast that semechki is Russians and Ukrainians’ favorite snack. Like popcorn for Americans, albeit healthier.

Russian author, Inna Metelskaya-Sheremetyeva, tells this story:

“It happened in 1982. I worked as a children’s camp guide (Russian: pioner vozhataya) at Molodaya Gvardia in Odessa. Sorry to say, but I had a huge fight in which blood was drawn, with one American girl. She was also a camp guide who came from the US as part of an exchange program. I once caught her entertaining herself by throwing semechki in the dirt under her feet and laughing when little Ukrainian kids picked up and ate these dirty semechki. I remembered forever the name of that b*tch. She was called Vicky. For that fight I received a public Komsomol reprimand and they threw me out of camp.

Earlier today, I read with great surprise in Nuland’s bio that she worked in 1982 in Odessa’s Molodaya Gvardia as pioner vozhataya, being part of the exchange program, and that her impressions of the USSR were of the most negative kind. I always thought I did the right thing giving her that thrashing. I haven’t regretted it then and don’t regret today. Not enough though; should’ve given her more.”

Breaking News!

Dear readers, I am preparing a great surprise and a real treat! You will be pleased to know that I am finishing my translation of a very special video documentary with materials until recently considered top-secret, and real demos until recently seen by only a few people in the world.

Due to language and other barriers, these materials may never reach the Western audiences, except through my Earth Shift Report. The materials I will present are so important and so juicy that I decided to take a detour from my usual written reports in order to make this material accessible to you. Remember the USS Donald Cook Black Sea incident and the mysterious Russian ‘khibiny’ that disabled the advanced US electronic systems? Read the whole story: Mystery Revealed: What frightened the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black Sea?

If you’ve heard about ‘khibiny,’ believe me, you’ve heard nothing yet!

Better than a thriller! Documentary: CRIMEA. WAY BACK HOME

New documentary alert! Another recent Russian documentary that is highly recommended and must watch. This film is so good that I simply have to tell my readers about it!

Крым. Путь на Родину. Документальный фильм Андрея Кондрашова

Crimea. Road to Motherland (aka, Way Back Home). Film by Andrey Kondrashov

The film includes an eye-opening reconstruction of the events on Kiev maidan and how the participants of the Kiev anti-maidan from Crimea, who came to express their viewpoint, were brutally hunted down and eliminated (very little known and remembered violent suppression of an alternative point of view by the Ukrainian beacon of Western democracy). Events leading up to Crimea’s vote for independence, including attempts by well-trained thugs from Kiev maidan and groups of radical local Tatars to take over Crimea, how unarmed people rose against armed Ukrainian SBU and army, the appearance of the “little green men” and their role, how Ukrainian army switched to the Russian side; to top it all off, operation ‘Yanukovich’ – how Ukraine president had 30 minutes to live and how he was whisked away. The whole movie is punctuated with candid and super-revealing interviews with Vladimir Putin, who tells the truth as it is about his personal role and personal control over the Crimea events (incidentally, as I predicted from the start).

Way better than most thrillers! 2.5 hours watched with dated breath. 7 million have already watched this film on YT. Honestly, the best documentary I have seen.

Russian version and the one with English subs are below. I hope I’ll be able to include parts of it with my translation in one of the future Earth Shift Reports. Stay tuned!

Ex Ukraine PM: West expected Yanukovich to die like Gadaffi

Emotional ex Ukraine PM under Yanukovich, Nikolay Azarov, presented his new book detailing the February 2014 Kiev coup. Almost crying while talking about the tragedy in Donbass and Odessa, he put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the EU and US; specifically, the former EU commissioner Stefan Fule, who threatened him with regime change if he didn’t sign the EU agreement. He also talked about personal pressure on him by US State Dept’s Victoria Nuland. (And let’s not forget the prominent role in this whole story by the EU chief diplomat Catherine Ashton and other politicians from Brussels, Lithuania and Poland, as I discussed in a number of prior articles – LR.)

Take a listen:

In this piece in Russian Azarov admits that: negotiations with Russia were always difficult because of gas price disputes, but they always proceeded with mutual respect and in the spirit of cooperation. Russia never put pressure on the Ukraine government. It was the opposite with the West. Ukraine government and Azarov personally were under constant severe pressure from US and EU. When Nuland arrived in December 2013, she started pressuring Azarov into forming the so-called “government of national unity,” staffed with people “the nation trusts.” Azarov laments that she was not concerned at all with the fact that his own government received a vote of confidence in both December 2013 and January 2014.

I think the above is self-explanatory, should anyone still need a confirmation that Ukraine was a managed colony of the West well before the February 2014 coup, still under Yanukovich… Incidentally, this should also help those who still think that Yanukovich was a pro-Russian politician. In fact, Yanukovich was never pro-Russian. He was only a bit more balanced than others. But it was Yanukovich who announced 4 years ago that the direction of Ukraine is towards integration with the EU. Russia worked with him, just like they tried to work with Timoshenko when she was PM, trying to keep a bad peace in the family and settling for a lesser evil.

Prediction:

These revelations are just the beginning. As the conflict in Ukraine continues growing and getting out of hand, as the explosion leading to the new, cleansed Ukraine – completely different from today’s nazi regime – nears, more and more revelations will be coming out. Also see my PREDICTIONS for a complete picture.

The artificial entity that is today’s Ukraine, could never self-govern. The fact is, Ukraine in this configuration (frankly, in any configuration) could only be successful being a part of Russia, as history shows. For a complete picture on that read: FREE Earth Shift Report 2: Ukraine, Russia and Falsified History.

The fact that Russia in the past 20 odd years was hands off and looking the other way was used by the West to take over Ukraine quietly via oligarchs, NGOs, MSM, falsified/Soros-sponsored history books, Catholic church and 2004 Orange revolution. The moment Yanukovich refused to do what they wanted him to do, they executed an openly nazi coup and created an area of permanent instability on Russian borders. The problem with this approach is that when you sleep with the devil, be ready to wake up in hell. Eventually, such things backfire. US once created AlQaeda and trained the Taliban against the USSR. Years later, these entities acquired a life of their own and turned on their former handlers.

To add to the picture, here is my response to a reader that resonates with the above. The issues discussed are whether Ukraine may let Donbass leave to save the Kiev junta’s grip on the rest of the territory; and whether, should this happen, the rest of Ukraine will be left anti-Russian for a long time.

My reply:

The revolt is brewing inside Ukraine in many areas, including Odessa, Kharkov and Zaporozhie, and even Western Ukraine. 1.5 million Ukraine citizens already escaped to Russia from mobilization, etc. This means that if Donbass is allowed to leave, others will want to secede as well.
Anti-Russian Ukraine won’t survive for long because it’s unnatural – change is coming. US and EU created a monster they will be very sorry about.
A great example is Chechnya: considering the gravity of a 1990s conflict, it did a rather quick turnaround from anti-Russian rebellion to a staunchly pro-Russian position. These switches of the public mood happen extremely fast, often the moment the status quo changes. This is human nature and there are tons of historic examples of same.

The Kiev junta is finished the moment they admit Donbass is separate.

I will also briefly add that the geopolitical game is much bigger than between the parts of Ukraine. The stakes are between the old and the new and what the future of mankind will look like. What happens in Ukraine is really being decided between Washington and Moscow. I will write about that in the upcoming Earth Shift Reports. Stay tuned!

Pranks to Die For: US General Admits Help for Ukraine, Oligarch Kolomoysky – MH17 Downing

We live in an era of the previously hidden becoming apparent, when the TRUTH finds a way to those who want to see and hear it, no matter how well someone it trying to conceal it. The modern listening techniques and the Internet are so advanced that they often become the great equalizers of our time. Yes, NSA may be wiretapping the entire world. But then we also have Snowden. Yes, US, Nuland, US Kiev ambassador, and the other world bandits may have been planning to keep their being behind the maidan and violent coup in Kiev secret, but then someone wiretapped their conversation discussing who to put in charge of Ukraine, and explaining how US really feels about the EU (the infamous f*** EU remark). Yes, EU may have been attempting to publicly deny the Kiev maidan violence and the mysterious snipers, but the wiretapped conversation between Ashland and the Estonian politician made them red-faced. Or let’s take the brilliant wiretapping of the phone talk by Yulia Tymoshenko in which she revealed how much she wanted to nuke Donbass and kill all Russians.

Ever since such embarrassing leaks had occurred, everyone in Ukraine, US and EU is quite tight-lipped about their plans.

But the Russian journalist and prankster with a purpose Vladimir Krasnov found another way to reveal the truth and to make them red-faced.

Krasnov seems to be an equal opportunity prankster. He first became famous when he called the president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and introducing himself as a son of the ousted Ukraine president Yanukovich, asked for political asylum for his family. In the course of the conversation the ‘Yanukovich’s son’ said that they still had one of the golden batons (a type of Russian bread) and it will be their present to Lukashenko for his hospitality. When Yanukovich had to escape from Ukraine, the maidan mobs went to his mansion to loot it. One of their famous finds inside the mansion were a large number of the solid golden batons. I listened to this prank call on YT and it was truly hilarious. Lukashenko bought it hook, line and sinker. If Krasnov wanted to find out how Lukashenko, that sly fox, really felt about what happened in Ukraine, he got his answer as Lukashenko remarked that the coup and the new Kiev power were illegitimate. The funniest part was that an unidentified intelligence service or hackers turned out to be listening in on that prank call, and thinking it was legit, made it public by posting it on YouTube BEFORE the prankster himself got the chance to do so.

Krasnov later made equally successful calls to the Kiev junta, finding out some useful and interesting details. Below are some of his latest achievements. At the bottom, you will also find a damning admission by oligarch Kolomoysky about MH17.

Many thanks to my good tweepal @Gogi_Gogi for links to videos and RT article below!

World Class Prank #1

US General admits American help to Ukraine in a prank call

Link to article: RT.com

RT article:
A high-ranking US general has promised Ukraine to help equip its National Guard in a call made by a Russian prankster who pretended to be Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.

Prankster Vladimir Krasnov and unsuspecting US Brig. Gen. Kevin McNeely discussed the problems concerning the Ukraine crisis and the possibility of military and financial aid to Ukraine, LifeNews reports. Krasnov asked about Ukrainian aid requests. According to General McNeely the Pentagon may equip “four companies and one battalion headquarters” of National Guard.

“We have many requests …we’ve received, some of them completed, filled, some are close to be infilled. We have equipment right now that is setting …and customs waiting to be cleared …so it can be delivered,” the General said in the conversation.

Answering the question about American help to train Ukrainian troops the general said it was possible. Krasnov asked McNeely if the US can help Ukraine with lethal arms or money and the General’s answer was negative. The US can deliver arms to another country only if the President or Congress approves it, he said explaining that it is political request, not military request. The Pentagon does not send financial aid to other countries and can send Ukraine only equipment or military instructors, the General added.

Gen. Kevin McNeely is the director of European Partnership Task Force, US European Command, Germany. He performs strategic planning and commands operational cooperation.

Krasnov, also known as Vovan, is famous for dozens of phone pranks to famous politicians and celebrities.

Video interview with Krasnov: US General NcNeely reveals military secrets to Russian prankster – with English Subs! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L56nkaJVeig&app=desktop

Video description: The video has two parts: A news item on the subject (with Eng Subs) and the recording of the conversation itself. Both have been cut down to get rid of boring parts, and to bring the total to less than 15 min.

Vladimir Krasnov AKA Vovan222 is famous for his prank calls, where he pretends to be someone important and makes outrageous demands, or gets his victim to divulge secrets.
He started off calling Russian soccer players and celebrities, went on to troll high-ranking government officials such the ministers of sport and culture, the head of the election commission, the head of nature protection agency, and then expanded to prank calling Ukrainian politicians, as well.

His most famous success in that area was calling Lukashenko, the president of Belarus, pretending to be the son of a deposed Ukrainian president Yanukovich, and successfully negotiating asylum. Even more hilarious is that the prank call was wiretapped by an unknown intelligence agency, and leaked before Vovan222 did it himself (he was holding out so he could make a second call with some outlandish requests):
http://rt.com/news/167108-belarus-pre…

Apart from simply trolling politicians, he has also called Ukraine’s Minister of Interior (Police) Avakov pretending to be a separatist leader asking for peace negotiations, and called Pushilin (head of the DPR at the time) pretending to be Avakov’s aide asking for the same – in an apparent attempt to get them to talk and stop the bloodshed. They did negotiate, but unsuccessfully:

http://vz.ru/news/2014/6/27/693130.html

In this story, he has managed to trick a very high-ranking US general into thinking he is Ukrainian minister Avakov, and ask some specific questions about the extent of US military aid. Nothing underhanded going on there, it seems, so that’s good – but he did learn that US is planning on sending instructors to Ukraine, of the exact extent of military aid previously approved, and that a secret meeting was going to happen on the 17th discussing the plans for long-term US military aid to Ukraine.

World Class Prank #2

Kolomoysky: Sorry about the MH17 – but it was a trifle – ENG SUBS

I can confirm – on the video is really the infamous oligarch Kolomoysky! Kolomoysky is considered the racketeer #1 in Ukraine. He has equipped and trained his own private army, which he is using to assert his power over Dnepropetrovsk and to suppress any dissent in this large city, treating it as his fiefdom.

It is true that by keeping Dnepropetrovsk under his control he is currently able to avoid any bloodshed and riots in the city. Simpleton locals seem to be grateful to him for that, however, no one really knows how much of this gratitude is based on Kolomoysky’s own propaganda touting him as a savior. As a well-known Ukraine lawyer and political activist Tatiana Montyan said, the sheeple think life is good when they are being fed today, not knowing that tomorrow they will be slaughtered. Link.

Kolomoysky is one of the 3 or 4 richest and most influential people in today’s Ukraine. He has equipped and trained some of the most vicious National Guard battalions, consisting of nazis and felons let out of jails. These are the battalions infamous for pounding Donbass and executing people.

There is a clandestine battle going on between Kolomoysky and Poroshenko (nominally the president installed by the US, but without sufficient support in the country). While Poroshenko is holding the official position, Kolomoysky is trying to ‘annex’ more regions, including Odessa, Zaporozhie, Kherson and parts of Donbass by installing there his own people. His secret tentacles spread far and wide, including to various organizations and Kiev’s political structures.

The admission of MH17 downing by Ukraine forces ‘by mistake’ from Kolomoysky is very damning. Incidentally, it was the Dnepropetrovsk (Kolomoysky’s domain) air traffic control that led MH17 flight into the war zone by making it deviate from its normal course. The Spanish air traffic controller working out of Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, who tweeted about his suspicions after the MH17 downing, had disappeared along with his Tweeter account.

Ukraine, ISIL, Ebola, Hong Kong: The US Traveling Circus of Chaos

Lada’s analysis and prediction:

THE US TRAVELING CIRCUS OF CHAOS

(Ref. : US Government Is Funding The Hong Kong “Student Protests” on PaulCraigRoberts.org)

Hong Kong is on fire. Of course, this should have been expected. You thought they would target Russia via Ukraine, while leaving China alone? These past several months I was just wondering where exactly they would strike. Hong Kong is very logical: it is to China a bit like Ukraine (and by extension, Crimea) to Russia.

The reason this is happening right now is clear: both China and Russia are building anti-dollar coalition and are preparing to dump the Western banking system. Notice that ‘pro-democracy protests’ didn’t happen in Hong Kong at any other time before. They are happening specifically now, although the same exact problems were always there.

Interesting ‘coincidence’: as tensions ease up somewhat in Ukraine, they increase at the same time elsewhere! I said that US will slowly disengage from Ukraine, now that they were unable to get what they wanted there, namely Crimea for their bases and in order to squeeze Russia out of the Black Sea + all of Ukraine for fracking and for bases targeting Russia. They already know they won’t be able to hold on to Ukraine (as I predicted from the very beginning!). See: Predictions and My Latest Intel: Did US Lose in Ukraine? Is Putin the Best Russian Leader? Do People Prefer Conspiracies to Real Truth? The resistance of the population in Ukraine turned out too strong and growing, despite all the intimidation. Therefore, they are moving on to new targets. ISIL, Ebola, and the fresh one – Hong Kong.

What does this tell us? One thing only: ALL THIS IS ARRANGED BY THE SAME TEAM. They have one, two teams max, to create chaos and spread circles of violence around the world! There are only so many circles of violence this hard-working team can juggle at any given moment.

It is a traveling circus of the sort I refered to in my recent post: The Ugly Mask of Fascism in Ukraine 1: Urge to Destroy. Except, this one is of a different kind. The ukro-nazi traveling circus in Ukraine is all about destruction and terrorizing the population so they would be afraid to speak up. It relies on brute physical force. This traveling circus is much more intelligent and subtle. It is about masterminding color revolutions and creating destabilization in various parts of the globe. It is the brain behind the chaos. The similarities are: both hide their faces – ukro-nazis behind black masks, and the geopolitical traveling circus of chaos – just by remaining behind the scenes and therefore, invisible to people. But, make no mistake: they serve one master and they are financed from the same source.

Of course, in order for any riots to take place, there has to be a predisposition, a pre-condition, for such events to take place. There are real problems in Hong Kong, and that’s what they capitalize on. But these problems existed all these years. They have been brought out and exaggerated ten-fold to make this work. The evidence of the outside intervention is very easy to spot. Look how many problems the US has, look how many people are unhappy and talk about it – but very little happens as far as protests. Protests, in order to turn into a bloody coup like in Ukraine, need interference and hefty financing from abroad. And US/UK are so terrific at both!

And another thing: the mask of those who are truly behind the ‘Occupy Central’ movement in Hong Kong, the camouflage of those who orchestrated the right time to act for the leaders of this movement, and who gave the signal – is excellent. The whole thing looks very natural. Therefore, even those people who should know what’s up, are buying it. I just had an interesting discussion with my hubby’s family, the Hong Kong natives…

Every country in the world, especially all those countries opposed to the US-centric world, is now watching very closely what’s happening in Hong Kong and Ukraine. Everyone got the message sent by the Yanukovich’s overturn loud and clear. Except, it may not be the message US hoped for.

China isn’t Ukraine and Chinese government isn’t stupid, or weak.

Moreover, I predicted early on that in Ukraine they bit more than they could ever hope to chew. They should have left Ukraine alone. As a result, more and more countries get convinced that US cannot be trusted.

Prediction: The stampede to join the alliance with Russia and China is about to begin. It will be quiet at first. When it becomes obvious to all, it will be too late.

*****

To illustrate the point further, below is an excerpt from a guest post on PaulCraigRoberts.org, who continues to work tirelessly to inform and bring out the truth. This guest post is by Tony Cartalucci of Global Research.

US Government Is Funding The Hong Kong “Student Protests”

Url of this article:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-now-admits-it-is-funding-occupy-central-in-hong-kong/5405680

“Just as the US admitted shortly after the so-called “Arab Spring” began spreading chaos across the Middle East that it had fully funded, trained, and equipped both mob leaders and heavily armed terrorists years in advance, it is now admitted that the US State Department through a myriad of organizations and NGOs is behind the so-called “Occupy Central” protests in Hong Kong.
The Washington Post would report in an article titled, “Hong Kong erupts even as China tightens screws on civil society,” that:

Chinese leaders unnerved by protests elsewhere this year have been steadily tightening controls over civic organizations on the mainland suspected of carrying out the work of foreign powers.

The campaign aims to insulate China from subversive Western ideas such as democracy and freedom of expression, and from the influence, specifically, of U.S. groups that may be trying to promote those values here, experts say. That campaign is long-standing, but it has been prosecuted with renewed vigor under President Xi Jinping, especially after the overthrow of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych following months of street demonstrations in Kiev that were viewed here as explicitly backed by the West.
The Washington Post would also report (emphasis added):

One foreign policy expert, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive subject, said Putin had called Xi to share his concern about the West’s role in Ukraine. Those concerns appear to have filtered down into conversations held over cups of tea in China, according to civil society group members.
“They are very concerned about Color Revolutions, they are very concerned about what is going on in Ukraine,” said the international NGO manager, whose organization is partly financed by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), blamed here for supporting the protests in Kiev’s central Maidan square. “They say, ‘Your money is coming from the same people. Clearly you want to overthrow China.’ ”

Congressionally funded with the explicit goal of promoting democracy abroad, NED has long been viewed with suspicion or hostility by the authorities here. But the net of suspicion has widened to encompass such U.S. groups as the Ford Foundation, the International Republican Institute, the Carter Center and the Asia Foundation.

Of course, NED and its many subsidiaries including the International Republican Institute and the National Democratic Institute do no such thing as “promoting democracy,” and instead are in the business of constructing a global network of neo-imperial administration termed “civil society” that interlocks with the West’s many so-called “international institutions” which in turn  are completely controlled by interests in Washington, upon Wall Street, and in the cities of London and Brussels.

The very concept of the United States ”promoting democracy” is scandalous when considering it is embroiled in an invasive global surveillance scandal, guilty of persecuting one unpopular war after another around the planet against the will of its own people and based on verified lies, and brutalizing and abusing its own citizens at home with militarized police cracking down on civilians in towns like Ferguson, Missouri – making China’s police actions against “Occupy Central” protesters pale in comparison. “Promoting democracy” is clearly cover for simply expanding its hegemonic agenda far beyond its borders and at the expense of national sovereignty for all subjected to it, including Americans themselves…”

Putin’s Advisor Sergei Glazyev on Eurofascism. Did Russia and China Lose Propaganda War to the US?

Dear readers, because I am going on vacation, I am posting a total of three new pieces today. They are all different and give a voice to my readers. I just love engaging my readers, so please continue leaving good, helpful to the discussion, and responsible comments! The most interesting ones I may turn into an article or a cool debate. Please make sure you read, like and share all three of these new posts that will be appearing throughout the day! Don’t overlook any! I will be back next week. 

Sorry, all. Formatting’s off in this post – blame it on Mercury Retrograde ;). Will try to reformat next week, after I return to my desk. But content’s really great, so don’t miss it! My historic and psychological analysis, as well as predictions, are at the bottom. 

Have a great 4th, if you are celebrating; if not, just have a terrific weekend.

******

This article is a compilation of several reader communications and my replies. These are all important topics and I felt they deserved to be posted here. En lieu of a full article, I thought I’d combine 3 topics in one.

1. Glazyev on Eurofascism and 100 years of anti-Russian subversion of Ukraine

Many thanks to the FuturisTrendcast reader, John Durham for an except from his own article, and for his nice words. Also, many thanks to him for alerting me to this excellent article by Sergei Glazyev, advisor to Russia’s President Putin and Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Glazyev’s article summarizes everything that is happening in Ukraine, including the roles of the EU and US, as well as last 100 years of the long and scandalous history of the anti-Russian activity by the West. Sergei Glazyev’s words mirror pretty much exactly what I have been saying in my articles since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. Incidentally, Sergei Glazyev, like myself, grew up in Ukraine.

John Durham says:

This is an article from one of the leading advisors to V. Putin and gives a summary of the last 100 years of anti-Russian activity concerning Ukraine from the West. It should be pointed out that Truman’s CIA was the first to bring Ukrainians to the US for training and parachute them back for subversion and assassination. The US has spent more than $10 billion keeping these forces alive and putting them finally in charge in Ukraine. The motives and identity of our traitorous Americans is identified and explained. This speech confirms my research in this subject and tremendous amounts of additional information is available from dependable sources on this subject.

The present publication has been put forward by the LaRouche organization. While I do not view that organization as a viable political vehicle, it is my opinion that this article and the wide acceptance in Russia and China of LaRouche himself should be enough for all of us to show enough courage to take LaRouche off our “Black” lists. I fear the sooner we do so, the less we may have to regret doing so.

I have read nothing I view of greater importance in bringing political and economic understanding to the American People at this time. The work of Ellen Brown, Lada Ray and Jim Willie come to mind as perhaps, equally important at this particular time. Certainly their presentations are more quickly grasped and therefore more politically powerful, in my view. However, long term, ie, the last almost 40 years, the greatest light for sheer volume has originated from the LaRouche people. Highlights in this article are my own. Certainly, this publication below, at this time, is nothing short of heroic and essential reading.

2. The “Putin Method” begins to work…

This is also news shared by John Durham:

The “Putin Method” begins to work…


BAKU, July 01. /ITAR-TASS/.
The Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has called for additional measures aimed at tackling the growing threat of terrorism, linked with the return of militants from conflict zones and INTENSIFIED ACTIVITY OF NEO-NAZIS (my emphasis), says a resolution on combating terrorism that was adopted in the Azerbaijani capital on Tuesday by the participants in the 23rd annual session of the OSCE PA.

BAKU, July 01./ISVESTIA/.
…vote was preceded by heated debate, during which Latvia, U.S. and Canada proposed to classify the hotbeds of terrorism to Russia.

This proposal was put to the vote twice, but both times was rejected by the parliamentary majority. As a result, the Russian delegation resolution was adopted without change.

– 44 parliamentarians voted for the resolution, 21 against and 10 people abstained. Document adopted by the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, – told “Izvestia” on the voting member of the Russian delegation, Ambassador Vasily Likhachev.

3. Did Russia and China Lose Propaganda War with the US? How important is the grass-roots TRUTH movement?

This is an excellent exchange from my recent article: ‘Gave Americans a Blow Job For Nothing?’ Polish FM Sikorski Leaked Tape Scandal. I am posting it verbatim – worth reading!

So how are Russian NGOs doing? How many are in Poland, and have they had any success?

By the way, it looks to me like Russia needs to get rid of the Fifth Column inside Russia even more than in Poland. When reading someone like Sergei Glazyev, the thing that stands out is “Why hasn’t Russia done that already?” Basic things to protect herself from US blackmail haven’t even been started. It should have been obvious by Iraq II that the US was dangerous, and once the Arab Spring campaigns started, Russia should have gone full-speed ahead in getting ready for rough seas.

  • Newly posted addition! Important alert: Russian analysts and presidential advisors are warning very seriously that USA is planning a Ukraine-style takeover of Russia in 2015. Ukraine, they say, is just the US and EU practice drill before Russia. This corroborates absolutely what I’ve been predicting all along: US is after Russia; Ukraine is just a gateway and a convenient proxy. More in Predictions. Also see my interview with Plane Truth and YT videos. I will continue writing about that, so stay tuned!

    NGOs in Russia are much quieter after Ukraine, but still there. They are on the way out, but slowly. Glazyev, and others, are trying to educate Russians about their true nature as this is the only way to get rid of them. Only when people support Putin 100%, will they be able to squeeze NGOs out. More support is showing, but NGOs and Fifth Column are also getting more insidious. It will be a process.

    You don’t really think NGOs go around screaming: ‘we are foreign agents, we are your enemy and you should never trust us!’ They go around telling people that they are defending their interests, that Putin is doing something wrong. Before, Putin was a thief and was in the oligarchs’ pocket. This has died down after it became clear he was neither. Now it’s popular to criticize Putin for not invading Ukraine and for trying to reason with the EU. He’s too soft, he is sold out to Americans – say US financed NGOs and media.
    Anything to unseat Putin and to create turmoil in Russia.

    From certain people’s perspective it appears true. This perspective is of course myopic, dumb and backwards. But they play on people’s fear and anger. That’s what they are teaching them to do in these schools in Poland (reference to my article ‘Gave Americans a Blow Job For Nothing?’ Polish FM Sikorski Leaked Tape Scandal). The big difference is that Poland is serving as a hub for preparing Fifth Column for all of eastern Europe and post-Soviet space. Poland has contracted with US and EU to spread subversive sabotage, which only serves US interests. The process of awakening will be slow.

        • Actually, Lada, what I was referring to is the issue of how few NGOs the Russian government has funded, and their quality. If a government, say, Serbia or Bulgaria, does something that is anti-Russian and 80% of the public there is against it, it is up to Russian interests to make a big deal out of it. It is unrealistic to leave things up to you and me and an appeal to justice. The Lord helps those who help themselves, or something like that. A minor example of what could have been done is to promote all languages and cultures inside the Ukraine. If, for example, a group had been promoting how fascinating the historical mix in the Transcarpathian region was, with tours and books and events in New York City, well, radical Ukrainian nationalism would have been seen as something that wanted to destroy such an interesting culture. This would not have been seen as “evil Russian” activities, but it would have helped their interests. Imagine the impact right now if a large campaign got started about “Save Transcarpathia From the Barbarism of the 1930′s”.

          Both Russia and China are finally getting off their butts and doing something about NGOs now, but this is very late, and they also need their own. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Maidan in Taipei or Hong Kong, though the authorities would clamp down a lot sooner and more harshly than Yanukovich did.

          • This is out of Russian character, you know that. And out of Chinese character, too.
            I understand your frustration. It’s mine as well. This is why, when RT was first starting out, I told them very insistently they had to be proactive. Few remember, but they were on the defensive back then. Just justifying Russia’s actions here and there, trying to appeal to the non-existent reason of all those who were completely overpowered by the US propaganda. I told them, they needed to go on the attack. Thank god they listened. Now RT is the only big enough voice that counters the US BS.

            Russia and China are fighting the propaganda war they had been forced to fight with the ENEMY’s WEAPON. This is not a natural weapon for them. Certainly, they have underestimated the enemy. They want to change the world, not validate the Western dominance by using Western weapon.

            You are assuming they have to use the enemy’s weapon to win, which is unnatural to them. They will use their own weapons and own ways to fight. It’s just you don’t see what weapons they are using because your eye, like most other people’s, is trained to see the Western way only.

            History shows, Russia eventually wins all its battles, usually the ones it had been dragged into contrary to own desires. Of course, they are also finally starting to use Western weapons as well, but if it’s not theirs, they won’t be as good at it.

            The whole world blinked, Paul. Not just Russia. The whole world allowed US usurp power. It will take some time to reverse that.

            And by the way, my prediction: the grass-roots movement is what WILL reverse it. You are underestimating yourself and me. 😉

            Did you see my post ‘Judgment and the Future of Humanity’:https://futuristrendcast.wordpress.com/2014/06/24/judging-others-and-the-future-of-humanity/ In it, I quoted and responded to your prior comment.

            Paul 

        • An example of the issue of propaganda was in a comment to an article by Nikolai Starikov: —-
          Awakening after decades of propaganda Russophobia begins in Russia and the world outside Russia. Here a man tells the story of his transformation. And he’s not alone.

          “Russian diaspora, many countries are able to link economic, scientific and cultural ties with the Russian Mir for the benefit of Russia. This Russian diaspora could, take a high place in the political and economic elite of their countries, could direct their course for a close encounter with Russia. But this is impossible if Russian diaspora are ashamed of their origin and their heritage. And Russia over the past 23 years has done everything possible for that.
          Now Russia is vital to deploy active work with all Russian-speaking citizens in countries near and far abroad. Need to be made in all areas: preservation of the Russian language and culture, research and cultural exchanges, sports, arts, business communication, Support Russian organizations, foundations and movements. This requires the allocation of considerable resources, and above all requires a sufficient number of diplomats and experts, organizers and leaders.”
          —-
          In other words, the PR problems in the Ukraine or Poland are worldwide and probably inside Russia, too. It shouldn’t be shocking what has happened inside the Ukraine. It stems from Russian and Western policies.

          • I agree. Up till recently they didn’t have a movement inside Russia that would help Putin actualize such things. Starikov is the man who is organizing such movement – on the grass-roots level, btw. He is the one to watch.

            Grass-roots movement is the name of the game, Paul.

            And yes, the whole world blinked. Again, because everyone was sold on the Western propaganda postulating that the Western way was the best way, therefore the West must know better. In fact, the Western economic miracle was simply 40 odd years of dumb luck. My Feng Shui Theory of Long Cycles explains that very well. Never got the chance to talk about it because of all these events in Ukraine. We should discuss it in the next interview. 🙂

            • Yes, grass-roots movements are very important. But they need soil that can grow grass. That kind of soil comes from years of thinking about what is needed to have healthy soil, and not abusing the land. So, as an example, Russia should fund lots of scholarships and cultural exchanges. Almost all of the “name” dirtbags in the Ukraine studied abroad. Places like Columbia University. What was a huge failure was bribing the Party of Regions and oligarchs to do things. And, speaking of grass roots, the US has done a better job of that around the world than Russia. Sure, some of that is just brainwashing, but a lot of it is real. Not really talking about NGOs here, more like funders examining what is popular and deciding to support it based on calculations. A friend’s niece recently spent a year in Russia studying. It would have been easier to study elsewhere in Europe, but she was determined.

              In any case, there are cycles, and the last one came about with the collapse of Communism. It left only China with the ability to restrain the US, and China was unable and unwilling to take on such a task, which was, as you said about propaganda, not really in their character. They also didn’t really have the strength till recently, and they had few allies who were angry enough about the American behavior to join hands.

              Lada Ray 

            • Well said, Paul 🙂

              ******

              In conclusion, Lada’s historic perspective, analysis and a few predictions:

              I agree with Paul on a lot of things. I’ll only disagree that China had the ability of restraining USA after the USSR collapse. It didn’t, and it still doesn’t. Not by itself – only in close collaboration with Russia, which they are still afraid to do.

              Russia has a much better capacity to restrain US, if we are talking militarily, and to a degree, politically, but it’s still not the same as USSR. Only USSR could keep USA in check completely. From this perspective, USA was right at targeting USSR for destruction, and USSR was wrong at allowing it to happen. As a result, the balance in the world was broken.

              However, it is very important to understand that this is how the Earthly 3D world works. Something has to be broken in order to build something new. This new, because of people’s resistance, is now being born in pain.

              I’d much prefer that Russia and China worked together more. Hell, I prefer that EU and Russia worked together much more, too. However, presently everyone’s petrified that the world will be destabilized and no one wants to take responsibility for that happening. Fear generates frozen ‘dear caught in the headlights’ syndrome in the EU and China; partially in Russia, too. This weakness shown by so many countries gives the green light to the US aggression.

              Right now, US is on the offensive and it’s a very unpleasant and difficult period for everyone. We are constantly teetering on the brink. The world is transitioning into the new era, but it’s darkest before the dawn. It appears we are backpedaling a lot. This is because the birth of the new is always accompanied by great pain and uncertainty. And of course, the old won’t give up without a fight.

              Prediction: unfortunately, we will have several pretty worrisome and dark years. Progress will be slow, but it will be made. The results will be visible later.

              In conclusion, I want to say that Paul hit the nail on the head. He, as someone looking at the PR/propaganda situation from the outside, sees it much more clearly than those who look at it from the inside. Those in the Russian government, Duma and various organizations, should listen. That said, the US created and financed fifth column is a real issue in Russia, and everywhere else around the globe.

              It is very important to understand very well why the Western ideology has such power. It is because between approximately 1964 and 2003 the West experienced progressively more stability and prosperity, while Russia had relatively less of it. The prosperity and stability were gained through neo-colonialism and economic enslavement of third world nations, fractional reserve banking, petro-dollar, financial monopolization and manipulation. The wealth was siphoned from other countries to settle in the West. I am talking about the culmination of this process in the past 50 odd years, but let’s remember that this process of colonization, financial manipulation and looting of other countries is several centuries old.

              Certainly, the well-developed system of the American propaganda was a big help. And of course, mistakes by the Soviet Union helped the West as well. As I said, the Ray Theory of Long Cycles explains all this very well. I never really shared my theory publicly before, although I’ve been using it for years. I’ll share it with all in due time.

              The situation is changing now, as according to my theory, we are out of the 40 year period favoring the West and are in the 20 year period favoring the North-East, or in other words, favoring Russia and China. We are also in a much longer period, which also favors Russia, generally speaking. However, the danger is that the USA has too many leverages with which it can assert its domination over the world. This is very troubling, and this is why everyone is trying to appease the US. The US has been allowed to accumulate too much power unchecked. This is very, very dangerous and can end in disaster for all. We are still not out of the danger zone, despite Putin’s supreme efforts. Putin has to balance on a very thin edge to keep the world spinning.

              That’s why things have to be done slowly and gradually. From the very beginning of the Ukraine crisis, and the US and EU blatant interference in Ukrainian and Russian affairs, I said that you don’t poke with a stick a wounded and dangerous beast. You first try to calm down the situation and then slowly remold it in your favor.

              I understand the frustration of so many people, but forcing the issue could lead to a global disaster.

              Also, I like the idea of engaging the Russian diaspora. The conversations about that have been going on for a while, but they never materialized. Russians have a lot of great qualities. However, appreciating and honoring their own people unfortunately isn’t one of them. Russians tend to take themselves, and their compatriots, for granted – and that is part of the problem. This is why some people left to the West when the going got tough in the 1990s. Generally, Russia has been the largest exporter of brains and talent throughout the 20th century. And that happened not because of people’s choice, but out of desperation. They felt that their own country didn’t appreciate them. And I am talking some of the smartest and most talented people.

              Russia has so much talent and the Russian land is so generous that oftentimes it isn’t appreciated. They say the Russian soul is very generous and the Russian heart is wide open. These are excellent qualities of which Russians themselves are very proud. But what I said above is an example of how this wonderful quality can backfire.

              In this regard it’s worth studying and partially adopting the Western attitude, which is quite different. So, the words about treating the Russian diaspora with respect and attention are wise words. If Russians can learn anything from the West, it’s these two things: respecting each individual (but without forgetting about the interests of the society as a whole), and paying very close attention to propaganda and the country’s image. Of course, as usual, balance is key.

              I know, we all are dreaming of living in the world without wars and viciously greedy interests that always want to gain an unfair advantage over everyone else. But since we are not in that kind of world yet, we need to remember to protect ourselves against predators by all means necessary.

              USSR won WWII, but lost two hidden wars: the propaganda war and the economic war to the USA. And that was its end. While naive and trusting Russians – from the cynical Western perspective – were busy trying to understand what they did wrong and how come their society suddenly fell apart, Americans didn’t waste any time. Any soul-searching was immediately perceived as weakness – and they pounced. How this usually works is very well described in the excellent book by John Perkins, ‘Confessions of the Economic Hitman.’

              What was really unbelievable, and what Russians started realized only by 1999, was that while Russia trusted US and EU in the 1990s, while they opened their borders and hearts to them, they (primarily US and UK) engaged in the wholesale looting of the country. Meanwhile, US sent just about a million “advisors” to Russia, as well as all post-Soviet countries. They infiltrated absolutely everything on all levels. How they worked is very well portrayed in the American film ‘Spinning Boris’ with Jeff Goldblum, closely based on true events. In it, Bill Clinton personally sends to Yeltsin circa 1996 elections several of his presidential campaign advisors. They work for Yeltsin secretly, because should it be admitted he is using Americans, he would never be elected. Yeltsin, by admission of these same advisors, was practically unelectable at 5% approval rating. The joke was that Stalin was dead, but not as dead as Yeltsin. The frontrunner for the 1996 elections was the Communist party leader Gennady Ziuganov. Clinton’s advisors got Yeltsin elected by scaring voters into believing that there would be a new civil war if communists were elected. The official version was that the country that knew too many wars voted Yeltsin in for the second term out of fear.

              This is the official version. However, now more and more proof is emerging that the election was simply falsified and that in reality these American advisors were sent to do just that. As a confirmation of this: The Urals and Siberia were actually ready to start a fight against Yeltsin, believing the election was stolen.

              Incidentally, two days ago, Gennady Ziuganov celebrated his 70th birthday. He had been the leader of the Communist party since the early 1990s, when he picked it up during the absolute collapse. He is considered a hero by some Russians as he managed to nurture his party back to life after it was on its way to the morgue. Ziuganov is highly respected, even by his opponents. For example, the far right Zhirinovsky, Ziuganov’s eternal opponent, had warm words to say about him.

              Ziuganov has also been the Duma deputy and leader of the Communist faction for over 20 years. The more it becomes clear to Russians what a deceptive game the US has been playing for as long as anyone can remember, and the better they understand Yeltsin’s role, the more people respect Ziuganov. He is suddenly en vogue. It appears he was right back in the 1990s. In his birthday interview two days ago, Ziuganov was asked what happened during and after the rigged 1996 elections. He said that hundreds of thousands from the Urals and Siberia were ready to take up arms and go free Moscow. Everyone knew the election was stolen. But one thing stopped him from saying yes to this plan of action: he didn’t want to start the civil war in Russia. He thought that peace was more important.

              Oh yes, I know the regular readers of this blog are very smart, so this isn’t for you, guys. But in case someone wanders into this blog by accident who doesn’t know me: I am not into promoting any particular party or agenda anywhere in the world. I evaluate people, events, countries and politicians based on their words and consequences of their actions. I judge them by their reason (or lack thereof), logic and intentions. 

              I can’t stop being amazed at the unbelievable difference between Russian and American politicians, ways of communicating and PR direction. Per accounts of the ‘spinning Boris’ American advisors, Yeltsin also resisted ‘negative propaganda’ against Ziuganov, proposed by Americans from the start. He didn’t want to go ‘negative,’ and only agreed when nothing else worked.

              It’s worth remembering how many millions upon millions of dollars, pounds and euros get spent every election in the US, UK, Canada and EU to bash the opponent and to scare voters into voting the way some sleazebag wants, therefore keeping the sheeple submissive and confused.

              The Western system is designed to murder everything that is positive, reasonable and light in the world. It dumbs down the masses and perpetuates fear, greed and violence. Let’s remember, violence can be non-physical, too.

              If you are assassinating your opponent’s character, are you any less of a murderer? If you are assassinating the character of the entire culture, as it is ALWAYS done in the West against Russia, are you not a mass murderer? Assassination of the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s character has been a long-cherished tradition in the West. I have to specify that the Russian culture character assassination is mostly the handiwork of the US and UK, as well as some Eastern European countries.

              But let’s look much closer to home! I can recall an assassination of the character of John Kerry, when he ran against Bush. My readers know what I think about Kerry. But the truth is the truth. Back then, when his character was being assassinated, costing him the election, I actually felt sorry for him. Kerry served in Vietnam and his people wanted to use that as proof he was a hero and a responsible leader. That was contrasted with Bush hiding out at some reserve regiment, where he didn’t even show up for duty. That was the truth and the American voters started doubting Bush. Then the Bush side went on the attack. Within the scope of one or two weeks(!) they put together a book by fake “swift boat Vietnam vets” that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. The “book” proved that Kerry wasn’t the hero and didn’t deserve the accolades, that in fact he was a coward, his stories of his heroic acts were a lie and he hid behind his comrades backs. Whether the stories were true or not, “propaganda” was written all over the so-called book. I can tell you as a writer: it’s not possible to conceive and write the whole book, PLUS get it published, promoted and delivered to stores in 1-2 weeks. It can only be done by a large and dedicated team of highly paid subversive agents with a very aggressive agenda. Kerry was crushed and never recovered from the blow as his character was literally assassinated.

              I also can recall the former Italian PM Berlusconi character assassination and intimidation campaign, resulting in his ousting and trial. The Italian and EU fifth column MSM did a great job on Italians. Berlusconi was always a womanizer, but it only became a problem – and all dogs were sicked on him – when he became too close to Russia.

              And that’s how EVERYTHING’s done in the Western world, including US, UK and EU!

Breaking! South-East Ukraine on Fire: Kharkov, Donetsk, Lugansk, Nikolaev Want Independence

Just a few days ago I said the following in reply to the readers’ comments: “There may be a serious revolution starting in Donbass soon. The locals have announced that if the referendum is not scheduled in a few days, they will initiate it.” “Ukrainian election in May won’t work out as they plan and hope – my prediction.” “This is only the beginning. Just wait till the end of May – June. At that point and later in the year, the whole situation will start backfiring.”

Why Is Canada’s PM Harper in a Rush to Visit Ukraine?

“Canada welcomes latest U.S. sanctions (against Russia – LR). While Ukraine’s interim prime minister has left his country to solicit the support of other world leaders during the crisis in his country, no G7 leader has set foot in Ukraine amid the political unrest.”  – CBS News

“Harper’s visit to #Kyiv — where he will meet with Ukraine’s Interim Prime Minister Arseniy #Yatsenyuk —​ will be further “expression of Canada’s principled stand on Ukraine,” said the prime minister’s director of communications, Jason MacDonald in an interview with CBC News on Thursday.

This visit has been proclaimed to be “historic.” I bet this is the first time during his entire tenure that Canada’s PM Stephen #Harper found the time to personally visit Ukraine. And it’s not just any time – it’s specifically NOW, after the coup that unseated the democratically elected Victor #Yanukovich and installed the unelected US stooge Yatsenyuk, or “Yats,” as was so well articulated by Victoria #Nuland in her leaked phone conversation. Canada’s Harper also holds the dubious distinction of being the VERY FIRST foreign leader to visit Ukraine since the Kiev coup!

To remind everyone, #Canada, a member of G7, was also the first nation to start the so-called sanctions against #Russia, consisting of telling the Russian soldiers in Canada, who were there as an exchange delegation, to clear out of the country within 24 hours.

Harper’s visit to Ukraine is orchestrated by the same US and EU forces who created the area of extremely dangerous instability in Ukraine, next to Russia’s border. It is orchestrated in the same way as the recent Kiev coup to coincide with #SochiOlympics; as the un-signable trap that was the Yanukovich’s EU association agreement; as the Western Ukraine nazis’ financing and armed takeover of Kiev. For more on that, read my analytical series on this blog: “What is Really Happening in Ukraine.”

So, why was specifically Harper chosen by the G7 to start the new “trend” of visiting the unelected governments? Very simple: Harper is a very convenient figure to do that. First, Canada has practically no trade, no borders, nor any other important or far-reaching relations with Russia. It would be difficult for any EU country to start this trend; the result for mutual trade with Russia would be pretty adverse. US president Obama already met with Yatsenyuk in Washington, but of course he considers it beneath himself to fly over to Kiev. He might send Biden instead. After all, USA is “special.” Enter Harper.

To quote my fellow blogger, Tales from the World“Once again I feel as a Canadian that I must apologize to the world for our so-called leader who is merely a minion puppet of the White House. Ask yourselves why Harper is the first foreign leader to visit the Ukraine. I tend to believe that Obama is so far behind on the popularity scale, the enormous lies are not saving the White House this time, that Harper was probably asked (told) to go and do Obama’s bidding. This Harper administration has changed the role of Canada on the world’s stage from a peaceful and liberal nation to another subsidiary of the American military complex.”

I agree, Canada used to be such nice and reasonable country – what a pity…

The above notwithstanding, in this article I will prove that this “historic” visit by Canada’s PM Harper to Ukraine goes well beyond him being a US stooge. Harper’s interest in Ukraine is more than that. Here is why:

First: Many of the old immigrants from Western Ukraine and their heirs reside in Canada. There are some of those in the US, but fewer. The immigrants from Ukraine tend to be farmers, as that is what they used to do in the old country. Canada happened to be the preferred place for Ukrainian emigration throughout the 20th century. The two main waves of the Ukrainian immigration to Canada were: 1. anti-Russian, anti-communist, ultra-nationalist Ukrainians who fled from the newly formed USSR after losing the 1918-1920 Civil War; 2. Ukrainian nazis from the Galichina SS division – the most vicious SS division of which even Hitler was afraid. After the USSR won the war against Hitler, these Ukrainian SS members fled to the USA, Argentina, but primarily to Canada.

These were the people who always hated Russia. I met some of them in the USA and I wish I didn’t. For them time stands still as they still carry their old hates and spites through all these years. For those who don’t know, SS Division Galichina, and its leader Stepan Bandera, who is considered by the Ukraine’s new government the biggest Ukrainian hero, killed and tortured to death hundreds of thousands of Russians, Ukrainians and Poles. After this, no wonder the Crimeans and Russian-speakers in Ukraine are afraid for their lives.

The descendants of these people currently form a powerful Ukrainian lobby in Canada. I am sure Canadian political insiders can put exact numbers to my words. However, from where I sit, I strongly suspect Canadian policies are influenced in no small measure by this Ukrainian diaspora. The same way as the long-standing US Cuban embargo (whether such embargo makes sense or not) continues being strongly influenced by the powerful Cuban anti-Castro lobby from Miami.

The citizens of both USA and Canada should seriously consider who, how and why is secretly pulling the strings of their countries’ political leaders behind their backs and contrary to the people’s true interests.

Secondly, here are two very interesting questions for the investigative journalists out there:

1. Does Harper himself have any Western Ukrainian roots? Considering how passionately and eagerly he is acting in this case, it seems likely.

2. Even if this isn’t so, he must show to his electorate that he’s tough. What is Harper’s electorate? Did Harper get political contributions from the Ukrainian lobby/organizations in Canada? He may be working off the money he received from his electorate, and I bet those who specialize in Canadian politics will find that a chunk of his political contributions comes from the Western Ukrainian lobby in his country.

Finally! As always, follow the money and you’ll know the truth. Both Canada and USA are actively engaged in #fracking, or hydraulic fracturing – a very harmful to Earth and nature procedure to extract natural gas. Canada’s fracking is probably even more invasive than USA’s, with huge potential consequences to the country’s nature and its future. USA/Canada are engaged in a global campaign to sell fracking as panacea for those countries that rely on natural gas exports.

To remind: Russia is the world’s largest natural gas exporter. Russia also announced that they emphatically ban fracking as the barbaric method of gas extraction.

Ukraine receives the majority of their gas from Russia. Ukraine’s debt to Russia for gas now exceeds $2bln, and it keeps growing by day, while Ukraine is broke. Actually, Ukraine’s overall debt to Russia is at least $16 bln (by some estimates $36bln), depending on whether Russia decides to press for it or not. But this is a separate story which I’ll discuss in another article.

Recently, with USA’s and Canada’s financing, technology and direct participation, Ukraine started fracking to decrease dependence on Russian gas. For Ukraine this could undermine their entire way of life. Ukrainian black soils, chernozem, are considered the richest and most productive in the world. Prized chernozem soils exist only in south-western parts of Russia and in parts of Ukraine. Fracking threatens to poison these soils and further destroy the disastrously mismanaged Ukrainian agriculture.

Citizens of New York State, where I used to live, have for years succeeded in keeping the fracking vultures out of state. Read my article here. Ohio recently announced a state-wide moratorium on fracking after the state started registering the increasing number of quakes. But look what fracking has done to Pennsylvania and Texas! It poisoned their lands and created daily tremors and earthquakes.

Profit-driven fracking companies are looking for new ways to make money as citizens in the USA start saying no. If they can’t frack freely in North America, they have to go international. This is Harper’s secret goal – securing more fracking contracts. And if they can hurt Russian financial interests in the process – they would consider that a wonderful side-effect.

Consequently, Stephen Harper’s interest in Ukraine is more than just political. He surely is there to sign more fracking deals. Meanwhile, Ukraine is being designated as their cannon fodder.

What is Really Happening in Ukraine? Part 3: Ukraine’s Future

“Every country deserves its government” is a quote attributed to Frederich Nietzsche. How true it is looking at today’s Ukraine.

Russia’s role in Ukraine

So, the billion dollar question is: what is Russia’s role in all this? Russia has been extremely, and surprisingly to some, quiet and restrained on the Ukraine issue. Russia had stressed a few times that EU and US interference is unacceptable. Putin also remarked that joining the EU association agreement is Ukraine’s sovereign decision that has nothing to do with Russia. Compare that with constant interferences by the EU and US in internal affairs of sovereign Ukraine.

Russia also said firmly that should Ukraine sign a free trade agreement with the EU, Russia would cancel its own free trade deal with Ukraine to protect its industry. The moment it has been said, the howling that Russia is putting pressure on poor, defenceless Ukraine, from both sides of the Atlantic became so deafening as if Russia just invaded USA and EU combined.

A bit of history

I have to interrupt my planned #SochiOlympics post on Lada Ray Blog, which will be posted soon, due to the fresh wave of madness enveloping #Ukraine.

I was born in Moscow to a Russian father and Ukrainian mother. In Russia and USSR, mixed marriages were absolutely normal and happened all the time. We all thought we were a part of one great Russian culture – and therefore, there was nothing to divide and nothing to fight about, there was no score to keep… Read the rest of this entry
