"If we presume the coming transformation of the Communist Party into the Russian Orthodox Party of the Soviet Union, we would obtain truly the ideal state, one which would fulfill the historical destiny of the Russian people. It is a question of the Orthodoxization of the entire world." - Gennadii Shimanov
From Alexander Yanov's "The Russian Challenge and the Year 2000" (1987)
If you want to understand modern day Russia and what the Ukraine Crisis is really all about, I strongly urge you to examine my hypothesis that Moscow did away with the false front of Communism to replace it with the front of "Orthodoxy", i.e., Russia's Orthodox Christian Church.
Bear in mind that the Kremlin, which is the focal point of Russian leadership, is a body of state political buildings and churches. In Tsarist Russia, order was kept by the dual authority of the State and the Church, the Tsar and the Patriarch. This is what Russia is returning to.
For instance, consider the new (as of 1993) State Emblem of Russia:
From - www.rf.boom.ru/eng.html
The double-headed eagle represents the combined power of the Orthodox Church and the Russian State/Tsar centered in Moscow. Also note the image of St. George slaying the dragon. This symbolizes the triumph of the Christian hero over evil.
See - www.hants.gov.uk/wallop/george.html
"And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the Salvation, and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ." - Revelation 12:9-10
The problem for us is that the megolamaniacs in Moscow consider the Jews and America as evil. We are the Satan they seek to slay. Israel is a focal point of their apocalyptic ambitions because their "Orthodox" view is that the Jews were responsible for the murder of Jesus and Russia's historical messianic calling is to punish them accordingly. America is considered a co-conspirator in the "Yid-Masonic" Zionist plan to destroy Russia and dominate the world.
With the Ukraine now about to fall to the evil, satanic West, one can only but presume the true militant, pseudo-religious, nationalistic, anti-Western character of Russia's current leadership is about to surface.
In a nutshell, the edifice of Communism has been removed and the "former" KGB has taken over the seats of political power in Russia.

The secret police are being guided by this new nationalist ideology of "Orthodoxy" which seeks to return Russia to its spiritual roots and rebuild the organs of Church/State power centered in the Kremlin such that there is the dual leadership of the Czar (Russian dictator) and the Patriarch of the Orthodox church. If you have trouble perceiving this, I strongly urge you to listen to the report from NPR at:
"The socialist tradition....goes back to Jesus Christ, not (Karl) Marx." - Mikhail Gorbachev, USA Today, October 28th, 1996
"Communist ideology in its pure form is akin to Christianity. Its main ideas are the brotherhood of all peoples irrespective of their nationality, justice and equality, peace, and an end to all hostility between peoples." - from Gorbachev's book, 'Memoirs'
The excerpt below is from Reuters World Service, December 8, 1996, Sunday, BC cycle, "Vital Gorbachev refuses to let go of politics":
Satan is in the world today, and he's seeking to use Christ's Church for world control with the Kremlin as his base of power.
(Gorbachev) is frank, though hardly contrite, about the failures of judgement that led him to promote to senior positions the very men who would plot to overthrow him in 1991.
"How do you explain Judas -- right there next to Jesus Christ?" he asks. "How do you explain that? And Christ did not recognise him for what he was. You could say that's a metaphor."
Let's plot a coup my fellow Christians!

Advance over the "Red Line"
NATO's encirclement of Russia nears completion
By Vyacheslav Tetekin
30 March 2004
Translated from the Russian
On Monday the 29th of March a meeting of heads of state of the NATO member countries will take place in Washington, at which the entries of Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia and Romania into that alliance will become official. An analogous ceremony of foreign ministers will take place at NATO headquarters in Brussels. This is an event of no small importance, immeasurably more significant for us than the terrorist acts in Spain and recent events in the Balkans and the Mideast. A military concentration of several million soldiers and officers, equipped with the latest military technology and espousing an aggressive, expansionist doctrine has now arrived at our borders.
Putin, who up to now has always regarded the approach of this armada with Olympian tranquillity and tried to sell us on the idea that NATO is 'neither friend nor foe, simply a fact of life' (but more of a friend after all), has suddenly shown signs of disquiet. Unprecented strategic "exercises" of the army and navy have begun. Even fuel has turned up: pilots are once again flying, ships are headed to sea and tanks to the training grounds. And when three submarine missile launches failed recently Putin's nervousness was visible.
Up to now he's also observed the open destruction of our armed forces with the same Olympian calm. We'll share some considerations on this subject with you a bit further on, but now let's refresh our memories regarding the recent history of NATO expansion. The first stage occurred five years ago. In the warm days of May, 1999, while NATO missiles were bombing Yugoslavia to smithereens, the alliance received new members Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic in a ceremony in Washington, amid fanfare and proclamations of the alliance's kindler, gentler image. (Later NATO General Secretary Javer Solana would be sentenced in absentia in a Belgrade court to 20 years imprisonment. For war crimes.)
At that time Russia at least tried to resist. A broken Yeltsin agreed to the alliance's absorption of three new members, but announced the existence of a certain "red line", beyond which NATO wouldn't be permitted to expand: that Russia would never allow the Baltic Republics and other former republics of the USSR to join NATO. And the West took this warning rather seriously. [Actually, I doubt the West ever took any of Yeltsin's warnings seriously, and the business about the "red line" was pure bluff on his part. -- Editor]
'Pro-western' Yeltsin has left the political stage, replaced by 'patriot' Putin. But already by October 2001, when I was in Finland as a member of a political delegation, our Finnish partners asked me in bewilderment: "Does Putin understand what he's doing? You see, he's not only agreed to the entry of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia into NATO, but is factually driving neutral countries into the alliance too." Indeed, Putin's announcement (regarding the Baltics) that each country has the right to choose how to provide for its security was 'correctly' understood in the West. For them, this was proof that the "red line" had been forgotten, and that the president now wouldn't refuse to raise a champagne glass and drink to NATO's health.
A lot of champagne has been drunk since. Western missionaries with their centuries-old colonial experience have skillfully enticed our leaders with baubles, sermons and audiences with the Queen of England. Then we saw how right in the wake of the missionaries followed businessmen ready to seize Russia's riches and, behind them, soldiers to guarantee the safety of the riches seized by the businessmen. Now they've broken the news to the leader that he's no longer really in charge.
So he's begun to stir. But what's done is done. The poison ivy of NATO "friendship" is now in full bloom. NATO now has innumerable friends in Moscow, who've made a specialty (and not a shabby source of income) out of persuading us that NATO presents no threat to Russia. And they're aided by those Russian officials with their endless journeys to Brussels for fruitless sessions of the Russia-NATO Commission.
These get-togethers do nothing for Russia's interests (excluding rather tidy travel expenses for our bureaucrats). But they do a lot to shroud the danger emanating from NATO in a thick cloud of fog. In the Foreign Ministry of the RF there's as before no shortage of those ready to vouch for NATO's harmlessness. Even the Defense Ministry expresses itself more than ambivalently on this matter. On the one hand, the NATO danger is simply bursting through the cracks by now, and is impossible to hide. On the other hand, our generals and their valiant minister Mr. Ivanov really enjoy their trips to Brussels.
What's taking place in fact behind the smokescreen of rhetoric about partnership between Russia and NATO? Here are some news items from just the last few days. On one former Soviet airfield in Lithuania F-16 fighter-bombers will soon be taking off. In answer to the Russian ambassador's feeble protest the Lithuanian minister announced that Lithuania is no longer interested in Moscow's opinion about how she should ensure her security. To bring the point home they threw three Russian diplomats out of their country. Moscow swallowed this all in silence, which only convinced the Lithuanians how right they were not to take Moscow's warnings seriously. Then Estonia followed suit by throwing out two of our diplomats. These countries are not even bothering to hide their hostility towards Russia any more.
At the same time, the Ukrainian parliament has ratified a Memorandum of Understanding between the Ukraine and NATO granting NATO quick access rights to the territory of their "independent" republic. NATO units can now travel throughout the Ukraine practically unhindered. Thus NATO forces have factually received access to Russia's borders. If necessary they can easily block the main base of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. The NATO commanders have enormous experience with quick deployment. They've been doing training exercises in the Ukraine for eight years. And Moscow has kept silent the whole time.
NATO forces in the Baltics and Ukraine threaten the European part of Russia. And the threat is enormous, for instead of the once-mighty Soviet strategic defense system from the Barents to the Black Seas we now have a gaping hole. Over this whole colossal territory we've not one battle-capable army. The situation is much worse than it was on June 22, 1941. Then our retreating forces inflicted such heavy losses on the fascists that the Wermacht was already reeling by the Winter of '41. Today we've got no one capable of putting up a resistance on that front.
Now let's consider the Caucasus, the gateway to Russia's southern regions. Georgia has already turned into a US protectorate, where American soldiers can do as they please. [It's now an open secret that Georgia is run from the US Embassy in Tbilisi. -- Editor] Now the USA is conducting active negotiations for the deployment of their forces in Azerbaijan. Baku is literally crawling with their military delegations, who don't even hide their intention to force Azerbaijan to agree to a 'temporary' deployment of mobile US units there. At the same time former Soviet aerodromes at Kurdamir, Nasosny and Gala are being studied for suitability for the US Air Force. The Americans openly declare that the Caspian is now a zone of US national interests and America is ready to help "guarantee security" in that region.
In the southeastern direction (Central Asia) NATO member countries have already built air bases and it appears they're there for good. At any rate, in answer to the Russian leadership's hints that it might be time to go home, the Americans and their allies declare that they have no intention of going anywhere. Meanwhile, the Tadjiks are refusing the participation of our border guards in guarding the Afghan border (through which colossal quantities of heroin flow into Russia and on to Europe). Negotiations for the creation of Russian bases drag on. The famous 201st Division, one of the best-trained in the Russian army, is degrading quickly. It's being moved from its well lived-in base to an unprepared location. Soon nothing will remain of its combat capability. And in general, it's preparing to switch allegiance to the president of Tadjikistan. So in this direction, too, we see no one able to defend Russian interests.
In this fashion, a NATO invasion of Russia turns from a theoretical threat to a perfectly real possibility. Large-scale preparations for intervention are going full-steam ahead. And now the multitudes of intelligence colonels and generals in and around the Kremlin have suddenly seen this threat lurking under their noses. And they've begun to wake up.
Our newspaper has already published the work of the Norwegian Institute for Defense Research, in which a scenario for the first wave of a NATO invasion of Russia is described frankly and in detail, along with a list of clearly-defined pretexts which would justify such an intervention. The noose around Russia's neck is slowly tightening. And our Russian commanders continue their journeys to Brussels where they're flattered by their NATO colleagues with false assurances of eternal friendship with Russia. Meanwhile, the number of NATO reconnaisance flights along our borders continues to increase. One more proof of their friendship?
But maybe we're not understanding the essence of NATO correctly? Maybe its expansion is directed at completely different ends? Let's examine the situation from this angle. In recent years the the alliance has spoken much of its preparation to meet "new challenges and threats", including those of international terror and the drug trade. But the conflict in Kosovo has shown just how far NATO's deeds are from its words. Having in its possession 45 000 soldiers in Kosovo, NATO's done nothing to prevent the province from becoming Europe's main center of drug trafficking. The Albanian drug mafia is flourishing under the factual patronage of NATO. And the connections between the Albanian terrorists and Osama ben Laden have been written about extensively in recent years. And what of it? And nothing of it!
Afghanistan is now under NATO control. Heroin deliveries from that country to Russia and Europe have grown many times over. And this has all happened after the overthrow of the Taliban regime (which forbade opium cultivation) and the arrival of American forces, along with their NATO allies. So where's the evidence that NATO is battling terrorism and drugs? There is none!
So the NATO military machine is relentlessly approaching Russia's borders. We remind you that there are now 3,7 million NATO soldiers and officers in uniform. With the addition of Eastern Europe NATO receives an additional 227 000 soldiers and officers, 5 000 tanks, 150 aerodromes and 500 warplanes. Who is this enormous force directed against?
With Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, NATO receives 25 air force bases close to Russia's borders. The most important aerodromes are Lielvarde and Tukums in Latvia, Karmelava and Panevezhis in Lithuania and Emari in Estonia. They've already been equipped to accomodate NATO strike aviation: airstrips have been lengthened, taxi areas widened, and powerful radar capable of monitoring the skies of Russia has been installed. AWACS reconnaisance planes are already patrolling our borders. From the Baltic States NATO can strike 1 600 kilometers into Russian territory.
The alliance receives a network of naval bases and ports, too: in Latvia: Liepaia, Ust-Dvinsk, Riga and Ventspils; in Lithuania: Klaipeda; in Estonia: Paldiski, Tallinn and Muuga. Preparations are underway for the basing of NATO warships there, and reception and warehousing of military stockpiles. For several years USA marine landing exercises have been taking place. What international terrorists are NATO planning to do battle with in this sleepy corner of Europe? You see, besides the Chechen bandits being warmed by Lithuania's leaders, there's no hint of any "extremism" there. [The website of the Chechen rebels, www.kavkaz.org, is based in Vilnius, Lithuania, and enjoys the protection a member of the Lithuanian parliament. Poland and the Baltic States are well-known havens for the dukhi, who're never refused entry there. -- Editor] All these preparations and huge expenditures make sense only in one case: if they're directed against Russia!
So Putin has suddenly gotten nervous and begun to concern himself with the battle-readiness of the Russian army. And he's very right to do so. The West harbors no gratitude towards Putin for his services in destroying the geopolitical legacy of the USSR. They're demanding new concessions. And to add insult to injury, it turns out that NATO and other "friendly" organizations are now preparing a "Chechnya war crimes" dossier. In which one of the main villians could well be Putin himself. [Putin would never have been installed in power by the masters of the "New World Order" if he weren't blackmailable. The "juiciest" materials in his dossier of "kompromat" (that's Russian for "compromising materials") are the "engineered war" in Chechnya, and the accompanying explosions of apartment buildings in Moscow, Volgodonsk and other cities, all allegedly carried out by Russian intelligence with the purpose of boosting Putin's popularity rating. -- Editor] So NATO will have yet another pretext for intervention and the necessity for putting Putin on trial for Chechnya. And he knows this.
NATO expansion is not merely the biggest military threat to Russia since 1941. It's our biggest foreign policy defeat since before Peter the Great. In comparison with it, our defeats in the Russo-Japanese and Crimean wars were simply regrettable trifles. If the fire in the manege on the night of Putin's electoral "triumph" was a harbinger of our domestic woes, this latest stage of NATO expansion is a grim warning of our ripening foreign policy catastrophe.
