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.

Russia and Iran build powerful alliance countering USA and Saudi Arabia
The situation on the world market of oil is reminiscent of a game of tennis with the participation of four players. Russia and Iran play in tandem to raise oil prices, while the tandem of the United States and Saudi Arabia has a goal to cause oil prices to collapse. The players realize that the winner will dictate rules of the game in world politics. Interestingly, German Gref, the head of Sberbank, announced a possibility for world oil prices to decline last Friday, September 13. Twelve hours later, Houthi rebels attacked Saudi oil refineries and caused panic at oil exchanges around the world. One may assume that someone - and it is not hard to guess who exactly - sent a message to the world through Houthi rebels that it is not Washington and Riyadh, but Moscow and Tehran that will be putting prices on hydrocarbons in the future. In 1985, Ronald Reagan sent CIA director to Riyadh for a secret mission, the goal of which was to cause world prices on oil to collapse. As a result of that conspiracy and the ensuing collapse in prices, the treasury of the USSR was empty six years later. The tactic played an important role in the destruction of the "empire of evil", as former Hollywood actor Reagan called the Soviet Union. Leonid Brezhnev could not oppose anything to the oil conspiracy between the United States and Saudi Arabia. The relations between the USSR and Iran had been ruined because of the invasion of Soviet troops in Afghanistan and Moscow's alliance with Saddam Hussein, who was at war with Iran at that time. There was no way the Kremlin could use Iran as a weapon against Washington.  Today, 28 years after the collapse of the USSR, things are shaped up differently. The alliance between Washington and Riyadh started falling apart after the mysterious murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the building of the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. At the same time, Moscow and Tehran have been able to overcome the times of mutual distrust that the countries experienced during the Soviet era. Moreover, Russia and Iran have become allies in vast geopolitical space from the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea.Moscow has recently announced a possibility of joint Russian-Iranian exercises in the Gulf region. Twenty-five years ago, one could not even think that this could be possible. Now the reality has Moscow and Tehran conducting a joint military operation in Syria against ISIS* to consolidate  the power of Bashar al-Assad. Moscow supports Iran because the possible confrontation between Tehran and Riyadh, the transformation of the Arabian monarchy into a hotbed of instability with Yemen adding more fuel to the fire will push oil prices up to $100 per barrel and higher. In this case, even US strategic oil reserves will not cause oil prices to slide. The USA may conduct massive air strikes against the Houthis in Yemen. This scenario does not seem feasible before the US presidential election in 2020. Short-sighted US officials also urge to bomb Iran's military facilities. In the meantime, Tehran is building ambitious plans to create the so-called "Shiite Arc" - to open a corridor to the Mediterranean Sea and create its base in the Syrian port of Tartus. In addition, the Iranian administration believes that the Iranian Navy should be present in the Indian Ocean. Finally, in the event Shiite Houthis succeed in Yemen, Iran will secure access to the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea. The implementation of this plan will become a nightmare for Israel and Saudi Arabia.*terrorist organisation, banned in Russia

Moscow theaters stand up in defence of arrested Russian actor
Four Moscow theaters expressed their support for actor Pavel Ustinov, who was sentenced to three and a half years in a penal colony for dislocating a police officer's shoulder during a protest action in Moscow on August 3.In the evening of September 16, actors and actresses at the Moscow Art Theater named after A.P. Chekhov, Theatre Center On Strastnoy, Other Theater and Satyricon Theater spoke in support of Pavel Ustinov during curtain calls. Director of the Moscow Art Theater named after Chekhov, Alexander Molochnikov, said that journalists had rescued their colleague Ivan Golunov, rap musicians defended rapper Husky, so people of theatre should stand up for their colleague, actor Pavel Ustinov. He added that representatives of the theater community believe in Ustinov's absolute innocence and plan to go to court to appeal against the court's decision. Many Russian actors and actresses leave video messages in support of Ustinov on social networks.A Moscow court sentenced actor Pavel Ustinov to 3 years and 6 months in a general regime penal colony. The court accused Ustinov of attacking an employee of the Russian National Guard and dislocating his shoulder. Ustinov claimed that he did not take part in the protest action at all, but found himself on the scene while waiting for a friend. At first, officers detained Ustinov, and then his friend, who spent two days in a police department. According to the actor, three National Guard officers twisted his arms behind his back, knocked him down on the ground and started beating him with batons before throwing him into a police van. Ustinov claims that he did not show any resistance to the officers. However, the court ruled that the actor tried to escape. The court referred to a CCTV footage, which did not monitor the area, where Ustinov was detained. The actor was thus found guilty of the use of violence dangerous to life and health against a government official.

Iran Falsely Blamed for Yemeni Houthis’ Retaliation Against Saudi Aggression
By Stephen Lendman Establishment media march in lockstep, featuring state-approved propaganda over truth-telling on major issues.  Despite no evidence suggesting Iranian involvement in striking Saudi oil facilities on Saturday, likely causing significant damage, establishment media headlines read like Trump regime/Pentagon press releases:  NYT: "Saudi Oil Attack Photos Implicate Iran, US Says; Trump Hints at Military Action"  The Times falsely claimed "strikes came from the direction of Iraq or Iran." No credible evidence suggests it.  Washington Post: "Diplomacy now or later? Politicians debate how to handle Iranian aggression (sic)"  Wall Street Journal: "US Blames Iran for Attack on Saudi Oil Facilities"  WSJ: "An attack on Saudi oil production shows John Bolton was right (sic)"  Fox News: "Attack on Saudi oil facility shows Trump was right to pull out of Iran nuke deal (sic)"  Fox News: "After Saudi Arabia is attacked, will US military attack Iran?"  MSNBC: "US blames Iran for attack on Saudi oil refineries"  CNN: "Trump: US 'locked and loaded depending on verification' of attack on Saudi oil field"  ABC News: "Iran fired cruise missiles in attack on Saudi oil facility: Senior US official (sic)," adding:  "Iran launched nearly a dozen cruise missiles and over 20 drones from its territory in the attack on a key Saudi oil facility Saturday (sic), (an unnamed) senior Trump administration official told ABC News Sunday."  The broadcaster and other establishment media failed to explain that no credible evidence backs phony accusations made.  CBS News: "US blames Iran for drone strikes on Saudi oil plants"  NBC News: "US-Iran tensions escalate after attack on Saudi oil sites"  Chicago Tribune: "Trump: US locked and loaded for response to attack on Saudis"  LA Times: "Oil jumps the most ever after attack cuts Saudi Arabian supplies"  National Pentagon Radio (NPR): "Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has directly accused Tehran of playing a key role in the strikes" on Saudi oil facilities" - despite no evidence suggesting it not stressed.  USA Today: "Saudi attack, possible US response"  AP News: "Energy prices spike after Saudi oil attack, US blaming Iran"  Reuters: "White House defends blaming Iran for Houthi oil attack"  Reuters: "Iran hardliners likely to gain from tensions over Aramco attacks (sic)"  UK owned and controlled BBC: "Saudi oil attacks: US says intelligence shows Iran involved (sic)"  London Guardian: "Saudi Arabia oil attack: Trump hints at action as US points finger at Iran"  Al Jazeera: "Mike Pompeo blames Iran for Aramco drone attacks"  German public broadcaster DW: "US blames Iran for Saudi oil attack despite Iranian denials"  Iran debunked false US accusations. No evidence suggests its involvement in Saturday attacks on Saudi oil facilities.  Its Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said "(t)o pin such action on Iran is in line with the (US) maximum deceit approach that they have adopted following their failures," adding:  "Yemen has been entangled in war for five years, and Iran has naturally clearly announced that it supports the Yemeni people and their rights, but blaming Iran for (actions by Houthis) is in line with (the US policy of) maximum lie(s). Such remarks are essentially baseless and untrue."  China's Foreign Ministry called false US accusations against Iran "irresponsible," adding: "China's position is that we oppose any moves that expand or intensify conflict."  Russia's Foreign Ministry sent mixed messages. It "resolutely condemn(ed)" Saturday's attack that disrupted world energy markets with potentially negative consequences for the global economy.  While noting that striking Saudi oil facilities is a "direct consequence of the continuing crisis in Yemen," the Ministry failed to explain that Yemeni Houthis responded to Saudi aggression in self-defense, their legal right under the UN Charter and other international law.  They want peace and stability restored to the war-torn country. The most strategically effective way is by making the Saudis pay dearly for their unlawful actions - in cahoots with the US.  At the same time, Russia "strongly recommend(ed)" against rushing to rash conclusions and considering "military options," it called "unacceptable."  The Kremlin wants Middle East wars resolved diplomatically, clearly against the region boiling over by attacking Iran.  On Monday, Houthi spokesman Yahya Saree said another attack on Saudi facilities may be launched at any time.  He urged foreign companies and personnel working at Saudi energy and other facilities to immediately leave to avoid being in harm's way.  He claimed Houthi forces can strike strategic Saudi targets whenever they wish, adding:  "Riyadh must reconsider its calculations and stop its attacks and blockade against Yemen," indicating further strikes will occur otherwise.  Photo: By Ibrahem Qasim - Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0,

Indian Prime Minister's visit to Vladivostok a giant step toward a multipolar world
By Sawraj Singh Vladivostok is located in the Far East of Russia. It was a part of China till 1860 when in the treaty of Beijing it was ceded to Russia. In 1916 it got connected with Moscow and Europe by the Trans Siberian Railway. In this historic city where east meets west, Modi and Putin met for the Fifth Eastern Economic Forum and took a giant toward a multipolar world. This is consistent with India's policy "Look East". Actually India is going a step beyond this policy to "Act East". Both India and Russia have realized they have to revive their traditional friendship in the light of the new developments in the region and in the world.                                                                   In the region and in the worldб America and China seem to have become the major rivals. American policy seems to be trying to contain and isolate China. The Asia-Pacific region seems to have become the main area of this rivalry. Many countries in the region feel uncomfortable in taking sides in this rivalry. Russia and India are providing a rallying point for these countries. In doing so they are also creating a new center of power thereby converting a bipolar world to a multipolar world. With the collapse of the Soviet Union the world had become a unipolar world with America as the only super power in the world.

Russia stops Israel from striking Syria
Russia has prevented at least three Israeli attacks on military targets in Syria by threatening to intercept and shoot down Israeli aircraft from S-400 air defense systems. This was the reason why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid an emergency visit to Sochi to have a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.According to Independent Arabia, Moscow prevented Israel's attack on positions of the Syrian army in Kasyun in August, where the Russian S-300 air defense system is located. A week later, Russia stopped Israel from attacking targets in Kuneitra and Latakia. Netanyahu allegedly tried to persuade Putin to continue the previous policy of turning a blind eye to Israeli attacks in Syria. However, the Russian president said Moscow would not let Israel to harm the forces of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. According to Putin, connivance to Israel will look like a conspiracy that will cause damage to Russia's relations with its allies in the region. Israel will now have to revise the list of targets in Syria and Iraq.Putin also expressed dissatisfaction with Israel's actions in Lebanon and made it clear to Netanyahu that Moscow does not support any violations of Lebanese sovereignty. In late August, the Israeli Air Force launched a series of attacks on targets in eastern Lebanon, near the border with Syria.On September 10, it was reported that Russian fighters took off from Khmeimim air base to intercept Israeli aircraft that were preparing to launch night attacks on southern Syria in response to an alleged missile attack on Israeli territory. Syrian missile defense systems had been put on full alert several hours earlier, although it appears that it was the Russian Su-35 fighters that stopped  Israeli aviation.

Drone attack in Saudi Arabia may burst another financial bubble
World oil prices soared as much as 12-13% after Saudi Arabia cut oil output as a result of the drone terrorist attack on oil refineries of the kingdom. Yemeni Houthi rebels from Ansar Allah movement used ten drones to attack the world's largest oil refinery complex near the city of Abqaiq, as well as an oil refinery in the Khurais region. Oil production and exports in Saudi Arabia were temporarily suspended. Saudi Arabia - the largest exporter and one of the three largest oil producers - has halved oil production by 5.7 million barrels per day from the usual output of about 9.8 million. Oil quotes on Monday morning reached their maximum levels since April of this year. Oil prices rose by 19%, which set a record in the history of observations.November Brent crude futures rose to $71.62 per barrel in the first minutes of trading. By closing, the prices dropped to $69.91 per barrel. November futures for WTI crude oil reached $63.47, but then fell to $60.09 per barrel.The situation on the market of oil has affected the entire financial market. The US dollar has dropped in its value, while safe currencies of oil-exporting countries strengthened. The Canadian dollar, the Norwegian krone, the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc have strengthened their positions. The pound sterling, the Chinese yuan and the euro have weakened. US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo stated that US authorities consider Iran to be involved in the attacks on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. Washington intends to continue the policy of showing "maximum pressure" in relation to Tehran.US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry instructed his staff to start working with the International Energy Agency to study potentially available options for a collective action on the global level, if need be. On Saturday night, ten drones attacked Saudi Aramco's facilities in the east of the country. In particular, the drones targeted the largest oil refinery complex in the world near the city of Abqaiq, where many Western experts live. The attack also targeted an oil refinery in the Khurais region, where the kingdom's second largest oil field is located. The attacks triggered massive fire, which was later localized, as the authorities said. Houthi Yemeni rebels from the Ansar Allah movement claimed responsibility for the attacks. The rebels promised to continue the attacks on a much larger scale demanding Saudi Arabia should cease hostilities in Yemen.Saudi Aramco is the largest oil company in the world. The government of Saudi Arabia owes 100% of shares. As of the first half of 2019, Saudi Aramco's net profit totalled $46.9 billion. The facility in Abqaiq can process up to 7 million tons of barrels of oil per day. This is one of the five fields in Saudi Arabia where Saudi Aramco produces 90% of its oil.

Russian actress dying of multiple organ failure syndrome
The condition of 48-year-old Russian actress Anastasia Zavorotnyuk is getting worse. The actress was diagnosed with multiple organ failure syndrome, when vital organs begin to fail one after another. Multiple organ failure is a terminal stage of a serious illness, including last stages of cancer. The syndrome may also be a consequence of developing sepsis. A similar situation was observed with Russian pop singer Zhanna Friske, who died as a result of the same diagnosis in June 2015, and then with singer Yulia Nachalova, who died in March of this year.In August of this year, Anastasia Zavorotnyuk stopped participating in theatre performances. Soon afterwards, it was reported that the actress was diagnosed with the last stage of brain cancer (glioblastoma). On September 13, it became known that Zavorotnyuk was rushed to hospital in an extremely serious condition. The actress was introduced into a medical coma in one of Moscow clinics; she was connected to an artificial lung ventilation machine.Some time later, due to her constant connection to mechanical lung ventilation, the actress was diagnosed with pneumonia. A part of the actress's body is paralyzed. On September 14, doctors allegedly stopped therapy due to a threat to the patient's life.Anastasia Zavorotnyuk's current condition most likely indicates that she is going through the third stage of a pathological process, when the human brain does not have enough power to control internal organs. Doctors believe that the illness that the Russian actress is suffering from has affected her hypothalamus - a part of the brain that is responsible for the work of glands of internal secretion. All systems of the body fail to work properly. The liver and the kidneys fail too, which leads to severe intoxication of the body. Anastasia Zavorotnyuk, a Russian theatre, film and TV actress, has played 29 theatre roles. She is most famous in Russia for her role at "My Fair Nanny" television sitcom. She has also hosted a number of popular TV shows, like "Kitchen for Dummies", "Dancing with the Stars", "Dancing on Ice" and others.

Yemen: country at war
When General Wesley Clark, years and years ago, has spoken about the famous list of seven Middle Eastern countries to be demolished in five consecutive years, he has done nothing but remark, for the last time, if there was any need, Washington's willingness to redesign the Middle East within a more general framework of global domination. With Russia that stubbornly remaining afloat despite the profound post-Cold War existential crisis and the Yeltsin presidencies and continuing unabated to sell gas and oil to the rest of the world, the United States, prisoners of the grip of their neocons, had to necessarily take possession of the countries of the Arab world and of the neighboring North Africa so as to be able to control the local oil supply routes and then launch the definitive attack on their enemy par excellence. The peoples of Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Iran were therefore trampled so that the destruction of Russia could take place, which would have gone from being a united and sovereign country to a western protectorate divided into at least three parts. This would have been the final move of the Brzezinski doctrine. However, something has definitely gone wrong: of the seven countries in question, only Tunisia has been subverted quickly, completely and essentially without blood.
