Russia and Ukraine Grain Tales by Big Brother Himself

Russia and Ukraine Grain Tales by Big Brother Himself

A few days ago, Arab News published an article titled “Free grain for Africa: reading Russia’s mind.” The Russians made good on the promise offered at the recent Russia-Aftica Summit and delivered some 200,000 tons of grain to six African states. Meanwhile, Big Brother and the elite order try to convince us Ukraine and its benefactors will somehow save the hungry world via new shipping routes. I mentioned Big Brother as an understandable replacement for our banksters, technocrats, and old-money aristocrats. All the news, propaganda, and geostrategy boils down to who or what we want to control.

Author Dr. Diana Galeeva began the piece by telling of the first receipts of Russia’s grain program going to Burkina Faso, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Mali, Eritrea, the Central African Republic, and other struggling nations with food shortages. She also contended that the Ukraine conflict necessitates Russia’s need to gain influence abroad, particularly in Africa. While this may be true, the other side of the coin greatly benefits the recipients of free food. And like many analysts aligned with Westerners, Galeeva, a visiting fellow at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OXCIS), neglects the notion of goodwill. The learned doctor redeems herself and the report by pointing out that Western policy missteps and increasing anti-European sentiment are pivotal in shifting African interests in Moscow’s direction.

Sure, Africa is, as Dr. Galeeva points out, “a crucial Kremlin ally for multipolarity.” This goes without saying, but again, she undermines the fact that a multipolar world is not only good for Russia. Switching gears now, it’s interesting to note how Voice of America seems fascinated to report on Ukraine developing new ways to get grain to customers. Of course, the title, “Ukraine Has a New Way to Get Grain to the World Despite Russia’s Threat in the Black Sea,” suggests truckloads of life-giving foodstuffs will be headed to starving people. The reality, however, is that the most significant shipments of Ukrainian grain go to China, Spain, Turkey, Italy, and the Netherlands.

The looming question is, “Who is profiting from Ukraine’s agricultural products?” Even if we forget that much-needed grain from the world’s second-biggest producer is NOT headed for starving kids in the Sahel, we must understand the money trail. A new report from the Oakland Institute, “War and Theft: The Takeover of Ukraine’s Agricultural Land,” exposes the dynamics and the vested interests leading to a consolidation of control over the country’s breadbasket.

An interesting facet of this report is the analysis of Ukraine’s highly controversial land reform in 2021. This reform was initiated under the auspices of Western financial institutions right after the installation of a pro-European Union (EU) government after the Maidan Coup in 2014. The gist of this report is that large international agribusinesses, Ukrainian oligarchs, and other corrupt individuals now control almost a third of the country’s arable land. Some pirate entities include Vanguard Group, Kopernik Global Investors, BNP Asset Management Holding, NCH Capital, Goldman Sachs-owned NN Investment Partners Holdings, and Norges Bank Investment Management. So, the Voice of America trying to convince zombies in my country that Zelensky and Co. want to feed the hungry is a hoax. This whole Ukraine conflict is about profit, not philanthropy and democratic values.

Only a few Americans realise that Ukraine is now the top recipient of aid from the United States. In recent years, the Zelensky regime has gotten more aid than all the other countries combined. The U.S. State Department and USAID globally dish out about $58 billion, and since the conflict with Russia broke out, Ukraine has received over $111 billion (December 2022). Another fine point mentioned in the takeover report is the fact that it’s Ukraine farm boys doing the fighting and dying in this conflict. Small farmers face foreclosure and the loss of their children and the land they’ve farmed for generations. I cannot imagine a more evil plan than the Western takeover of the world’s richest farmland on the steppes of Russia.

Researching who stands to gain the most from the pirating of Ukraine, some trails lead back to familiar names like Rothschild. However, the path of offshore accounts and holding companies leaves unfunded researchers in an endless life-sucking abyss. Two names, Australian Nadia Taylor, co-founder and Director of TNA Solutions, and U.S. businessman and TNA owner Nicholas Piazza, are essential for those out there who want to dig deeper. For now, I hope this report sets more people thinking about what is happening worldwide. We are facing a complete takeover of everything of value on our planet. Only two intelligent questions arise. Do we want the old singular order to run things? Or does a multipolar system of control benefit humanity more? The answer lies in a quote from Orwell’s “1984:”

“Big Brother is infallible and all-powerful. Every success, every achievement, every victory, every scientific discovery, all knowledge, all wisdom, all happiness, and all virtue are held to issue directly from his leadership and inspiration.”

The passage goes on to say that no one has ever seen Big Brother, and that the one sure thing is that he will never die. We can only hope and pray that hegemony does not live forever.
