March 14, 2015. Where is Vladimir? Read his activities from the news from the Kremlin feed below, or from Pravda. He has not been seen in public for 10 days, and I am hearing he may have had a stroke, or has cancer, or is hanging out with a possible newborn baby. Hm. The full range from life to death.
I hope he has gone to Ukraine and Crimea, and is privately working out how to remove Russian troops as soon as possible.

The Russian Federation

Countries invade because they want war, world domination, to save inhabitants, or they want stuff. Like oil and gas. Which one is Russia? I don't know but I am listening to them. Above and below.

Can 2021 be even worse than 2020?
The Kvadrat research centre shared the results of its new study devoted to most pressing threats that the world faces and fears most. Kvadrat experts analyzed similar studies conducted by Stratfor, IASPS and CFR - the largest and most authoritative think tanks in the Western world.Looking ahead, it is worth noting most of the fears are related to the threats of another major war, or there factors that may cause the new war to break out. One of the most relevant "negative scenarios" in Kvadrat's study is "Destabilization and, possibly, an attempt to start a civil war in the United States after the 2020 elections."Another most "popular fear" that was identified during the study is related to the stagnation of the world economy, global economic crisis in 2021 (a possibility of the cascading collapse of sectors of the world economy).This is quite logical, since quarantine measures around the world have already caused many economies to collapse, including the global economy on the whole. At the same time, it is absolutely unclear when this global economic decline is going to end, especially against the backdrop of the pandemic. Another global concern is a terrorist attack with the use of weapons of mass destruction (including a dirty bomb) or the use of artificially modified viruses to launch a worldwide pandemic."For obvious reasons, this fear also relates to the possibility of the new war, because the political situation at the current moment may evolve from the "hybrid war" to the traditional hot war as a result of such an attack. Another fear can also be attributed to the same casus belli factor - an attempt (possibly successful) on the life of a major politician (president of a military or economic power, for example) and shifting the blame for it on another state. Given the "waves of sanctions" that Russia has seen lately as a result of absolutely unfounded accusations, such as the ones that were made in connection with Skripal and Navalny poisoning incidents, an attempt on the life of a major politician may lead to catastrophic consequences in the world. The "fear of fragmentation," namely, the "economic and geopolitical" fragmentation of Europe, stands out from this list. Such fears are quite understandable. Europeans take the concept of united Europe for granted. Indeed, united Europe is very convenient, but in the era of coronavirus, European countries have clearly demonstrated that this unity can be destroyed simply "at the snap of a fingers." And now, instead of undivided Europe, we can already see many isolated states, which, inter alia, intensify rhetoric with each other on political and economic issues.The next "global fear" on the list is associated with cyberattacks on infrastructure, military and energy facilities. The topic of "Russian hackers" is only part of this fear, because this is the most popular topic for propaganda purposes and the ensuring media hype. Yet, if we look at the biggest hacking attacks over the last few years, when personal and credit card data of thousands of people were exposed to the public, it becomes clear that, firstly, hackers live not only in Russia, and secondly, if they hack into something really important, it may trigger a man-made disaster, or even a series of disasters.The topic of environmental protection, or rather ecological disasters, as it turns out, is present on the list of most serious mass fears. A major environmental crisis (most likely oceanic or marine disaster) associated with an accident, such as oil spill or chemical pollution is another negative scenario feared by many. Such fears are relevant indeed, especially after the Fukushima disaster in Japan.Another fear associated with the possible start of a "big war" relates to mass riots in first, second and third world countries as a response of the society to any political decisions and events, an attempt to destabilize a major nuclear power in a protest.Many things of this list boil down to the following global fear: A major war between regional powers in Eurasia. It is worth noting here that the world that we live in today is extremely interconnected at the interstate level, which means that larger, global players join smaller, regional conflicts very quickly. Any local military conflict risks turning go into a big war in accordance with treaties on protection, mutual assistance and defense.Another negative factor is quite traditional - it is natural disasters. They frighten with their unpredictability and inevitability, and they strike without any warning.In the wake of the coronavirus, fears of mass diseases have also became actual. The worldwide pandemic of a dangerous virus of natural origin with high invasive power and lethality is another global concern, the study says.This fear needs no further explanation as we are experiencing this crisis globally. However, one should not forget that the coronavirus has a relatively low mortality rate, and there are questions about its invasive power on a global scale. One has to admit that the pandemic could be much worse.The list closes with a traditional fear about first military clashes between military personnel of nuclear powers in third-party regions (China-India, China-USA, USA-Russia, India-Pakistan) with an escalation of the conflict to the point of the use of nuclear weapons. In general, such fears are present in mass consciousness in one form or another almost constantly. Yet, it is most alarming that most of these fears in one form or another boil down to a possible start of a global war. The difference is only about the reasons for this war to break out. Only reasons for this war differ.

Liquid capitalism: Everyone drinks it, swims in it, drowns in it
The most radical socialists; Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters (Black, White, Latino or Asian); liberal and conservative zealots; diversity and equity gurus; pacifists; denizens of corporates and non-profits; rappers, rockers and country western musicians; Bernie Sanders; racists and White guilt pushers; Baptists, Catholics, and Muslims; children; bland K-16 teachers; members of the military; indeed, every social, cultural, political and economic demographic of the United States of America drinks, swims and drowns in an ocean of Liquid Capitalism. It is nearly as old as humanity itself. Liquid Capitalism is impressive and horrifying. It floods and absorbs every political movement and message. It dilutes it, repackages it, commodifies it and profits from it. Take the BLM movement. Corporations jumped on the bandwagon finding another bullet point to add to their Multicultural Marketing strategies. BLM is beyond necessary and about time, of course, but look how quickly corporations took up the mantel of political activists: from Coke and Amazon to Walmart and Apple, corporations push the notion that they are really conscientious, nice Inclusive people and are going to restructure internally and hire more Blacks from a pool of 13.4 percent of the US population. Drowning the Message Behind the smiling corporate face that supports BLM (and other minority/diversity movements like LGBTQ), lurks the backstabbing bottomline: How to keep Black Identity consumers spending on the products that corporate capitalists produce. Consider this from Neilson: " When it comes to African-American consumer spending, there are millions, sometimes billions of dollars in revenue at stake," said Andrew McCaskill, Senior Vice President, Global Communications and Multicultural Marketing, Nielsen. "With 43% of the 75 million Millennials in the US identifying as African American, Hispanic or Asian, if a brand doesn't have a multicultural strategy, it doesn't have a growth strategy. The business case for multicultural outreach is clear. African-American consumers, and all diverse consumers, want to see themselves authentically represented in marketing, and they want brands to recognize their value to the bottomline."

Exploring differences between bankruptcy in Russia vs. USA
Bankruptcy isn't a topic that anyone likes to discuss. Creditors, debtors, and government officials all get a little queasy at the thought of bankruptcy, but it exists for a reason. And in many situations, it can provide relief when financial friction is heightened. But bankruptcy isn't the same in every country. Laws, rules, and stigmas differ rather significantly - particularly between Russia and the United States. The what and why of bankruptcy Bankruptcy is one of the primary methods by which control over an asset can be transferred to more capable or efficient owners in the instance of market economies. Ultimately, bankruptcy serves three distinct purposes: To solve collective action problems among creditors as they deal with insolvent debtors. To give individual debtors a chance at a "fresh start" when they're overburdened by debt. To preserve/save the financial distress firms have by reorganizing rather than liquidating. Bankruptcy is basically government-sanctioned relief that allows individuals or businesses to have debts forgiven, granted they meet specific criteria and follow certain guidelines. It plays an important role in keeping the larger economic engine hitting on all cylinders. Without bankruptcy, millions of citizens would find themselves impoverished and unable to financially recover from dire situations.

Another provocation against Russia about COVID-19 vaccine victims is brewing in the West
The West, having had enough with the story of Aleksei Navalny poisoning, may work on another  anti-Russian attack, this time about fake "victims of the Russian coronavirus vaccine," experts believe. There is a lot of money at stake, and the political profit of an endeavour are obvious.Anonymous Telegram-insider Nezygar writes, it is not difficult to predict the behavior of Russia's "Western partners": if they succeed once, they will do it again.This is a primitive "andry rhino tactic," but given the amount of resources available to them, it works.According to him, Maidan riots in Ukraine are indicative. Then it continued with the "Litvinenko poisoning." The provocation was successful, so they proceeded with it and poisoned former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter and then poisoned Navalny. However, the coronavirus pandemic threatens to outshine everything.The second wave is here: Spain, France, the UK and other countries of the European Union take urgent measures against the backdrop of a record increase in the number of new cases. "Russia has developed a vaccine against the coronavirus. This is a breakthrough that can be comparable to the first manned flight into space. This invention also comes as a huge moral advantage - after all sanctions for Boeing, Skripal and Syria. The Russian vaccine is a threat to the West, because it stipulates Russia's moral dominance over the West, let alone the money that goes away from Western pharmacological giants: taking into account orders from foreign countries, the number of doses of the Russian vaccine is going to reach one billion," Nezygar notes. The vaccination with the Russian drug will start in December, when sufficient stocks are created at logistics points around the world to ensure an uninterrupted flow of consumables.When it happens, a provocation will be inevitable. There will obviously be news reports about someone who died as a result of the vaccination.

The collapse of the US dollar has already begun, the perfect storm is near
When talking about Russia's biggest domestic problems, one usually names two of the most inveterate ones: fools and roads. However, there are two other huge problems that can overshadow the two traditional ones - COVID-19 and the 2020 US presidential election. This is not because the Russians want to take revenge on Barack Obama, who once insulted Russia by placing it on the list of biggest threats next to Ebola fever. Prominent economists warn us against the financial troubles that may occur as a result of the relentless struggle for that chair in the Oval Office. Russian financial and economic agencies should listen to them.The financial end of the world is not far off, economist Valentin Katasonov believes. The pandemic-induced crisis will make it impossible to return to the previous development paradigm of the capitalist world.The old model, which is based on the US dollar with its emission center in the US Federal Reserve, has completely exhausted itself, the expert believes. The world's elites will sacrifice the US dollar to gain total domination through transition to digital money and assets, most of the population will be turned into impoverished debtors, while many companies, industries and even entire countries will go bankrupt.Well-known Russian economist Mikhail Khazin predicts a collapse in the stock market in the near future. On all continents of the planet, a huge number of contradictions have accumulated "between the real state of affairs and the picture drawn by all sorts of speculators." The value of the largest commercial companies in the world is set a lot higher than it should be, and this bubble will inevitably burst.According to Khazin, the presidential election in the United States will trigger another global depression. The explosion in the global economy will hit Russia very hard because of the West war of sanctions against the Russian economy. Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, economist Sergei Glazyev also speaks about serious shocks that the world will see following the US presidential election in 2020. The opposition of political forces is too fierce to accept the defeat after the votes are counted.Such cataclysms cannot but affect the American currency, Glazyev believes, especially against the background of the fact that the US budget deficit is already higher than 30 percent, which is higher than during the Second World War. The American financial system is going into a tailspin, and the only question is about the time, when hidden inflation turns into an open form and the dollar system will cease to exist. The tragedy of the US dollar The financial state of affairs of the world's first economy cannot but cause concern. The whirlpool created by the sinking Titanic runs the risk of pulling global partners to the bottom too.The US national debt is growing at an alarming rate and has reached dizzying heights. As CBS television channel recently reported, as of October 1, that is, as of the beginning of this financial year in the United States, the country's national debt exceeded $27 trillion. When the bar rose to $20 trillion during Barack Obama's presidency, it seemed to be an extraordinary phenomenon. Donald Trump, during his 2016 election campaign, promised to tackle the country's huge national debt problem through economic growth that would result from reforms and the revision of trade agreements. However, we can see the reverse process so far. Having the ability to print dollars in unlimited quantities, the Americans may feel at ease. Noteworthy, experts in the United States also start talking about the danger of the dollar decline. Thus, American lawyer, author of books on macroeconomics James Rickards drew a historical parallel with the British pound sterling, which began to play the role of the main reserve currency after the end of Napoleon's wars and the official adoption of the gold standard by Great Britain. The Bretton Woods Conference of 1944 kicked off the dollar's ascent to the throne of world finance. But as with the pound sterling, the role of the US dollar as the world's key reserve currency will diminish, slowly but surely. As for explanations of the reasons for this process, James Rickards did not say anything original - he blamed Russia and China for the imminent tragedy of the US dollar. Apparently, self-criticism is completely alien to American mindset. Russia and China - these two rival powers - have been actively buying gold and increasing their foreign exchange reserves, thereby undermining the foundations of the American world order. According to the expert, the trade war between the United States and China, as well as the growing influence of Beijing through OneBelt One Road Initiative, are playing into China's pocket. The collapse of the dollar has already begun while the need for a new monetary order is emerging,  Rickards believes. Perfect storm after the blue wave As long as so many experts speak about the upcoming financial disaster, the Russian monetary authorities should think about taking protective measures before harnessing themselves to the burden of unresolved problems. At a recent meeting, the Board of Directors of the Central Bank of Russia decided to leave the key rate at the current level of 4.25 percent for the second consecutive time. Russian economists would rather welcome a radical reduction in the key rate in order to support the population and business with cheap borrowed funds during this difficult economic period. Elvira Nabiullina , the chairwoman of the Central Bank did not rule out a reduction in the refinancing rate "in the near future" if disinflationary tendencies prevail.Interestingly, Nabiullina appeared before the press wearing the brooch, which many took for a sign. The brooch that she wore before was shaped as the play and pause button. This time, however, the brooch that she picked was designed as a blue wave. In the USA, the term "blue wave" designates  the victory of Democrats in the upcoming presidential election. Perhaps the head of the Central Bank of Russia was alluding to geopolitical risks, since Joe Biden's victory is fraught with uncertainty and volatility in the markets.

Russia must stop Turkey militarily, because Turkey declared war on Russia
Turkey is an aggressor state that is waging a war in Nagorno Karabakh through the hands of Azerbaijan. It is about time Russia should to show its military strength, otherwise the genocide of Armenians will start and Eurasian integration will tumble down, expert Vladimir Lepekhin believes. US fails to arrange ceasefire in Nagorno Karabakh On Monday, Azerbaijan and Armenia failed to implement the truce, which had been earlier agreed in the United States. Both sides accused each other of wrongdoings. Foreign ministers of the two countries, Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and Jeyhun Bayramov, negotiated throughout the weekend at the US State Department. Donald Trump called the escalating conflict "a light case." "We will solve this problem. I consider it a "light case". It's easy to solve if you know what you're doing" he stated.

Turkey refuses to return S-400 air defense systems to Russia
Turkey refuses to terminate the deal with Russia for the supply of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems, Turkish President, Recep Erdogan said. "We took steps to acquire US F-35 fighters, we paid the money, but the US did not supply them and  demanded we should return S-400 systems to Russia, but we are not a tribal state, we are Turkey. We are not afraid of US sanctions," he said. Earlier in October, US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus warned Turkey of serious consequences if it puts Russian S-400 air defense systems into service. According to her, Washington wants to make it clear that Turkey should not use the Russian air defense systems. Turkey tested the S-400 complexes on October 16. During the tests, three missiles were launched and all of them successfully intercepted three targets. According to unconfirmed reports, the Turkish S-400 Triumf systems struck British-made Banshee drones.The deal between Russia and Turkey on the supplies of the S-400 air defense systems caused a crisis in Turkey's relations with the USA. Washington demanded Turkey should abandon the deal with Russia and purchase American Patriot complexes instead, threatening to delay or even cancel the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Turkey.

Police to interrogate Nestlé-Russia
The MIA Administration for the Kaluga Region opened a criminal case on the theft of land by OOO NLMK-Kaluga (LLC) with a total area of 8.35 hectares, which was later acquired by the Russian division of the Swiss company Nestlé, the Novye Izvestia publication reports. According to the investigation materials, the site is located in the Vorsino industrial park between the two enterprises. The creation of the park was initiated by the government of the Kaluga region, exempting investors from paying the tax on the property of organizations and reducing the income tax rate. At the same time, the seller of the land was a certain individual entrepreneur Arabadzhi B.F., who allegedly bought it from NLMK-Kaluga for 28 thousand rubles a year earlier, and then sold it to Nestlé for 62.3 million rubles. At the same time, the Swiss company turned to the regional authorities with a request to remove from the territory the infrastructure of the former owner at the expense of the Kaluga Region Development Corporation - the sewer network and modular buildings.
