Ukraine Cannot Escape Russia – The Carpathians

Yay! No terrorism at the Sochi Olympics!

We can breathe a sigh of relief. Everything is wonderful. The sun is shining. The birds are singing. The world is… …wait…

We’re at war with Russia in Kiev?

Yeah. US-backed protest groups have taken over the capital of Ukraine and deposed the president – dividing the country into the pro-EU west and pro-Russia east. And, Putin CANNOT allow this to happen, and the biggest reason has everything to do with mountains – the Carpathian Mountains.

Ukraine Cannot Escape Russia

Have you ever wondered why Switzerland has never been conquered?

Do you know why the US has been so reluctant to invade Iran?


Mountains have been one of the most effective barriers to invasion in all of history, and Russia suffers from an extreme lack of them. In fact, Russia is flat – very, very flat. And, the Mongols used that ‘flatness’ to dominate Russia.

Take a good hard look at Russia’s borders. Do you notice what is at the edge of those borders?

Mountains, water, or strongly allied (i.e., subjugated) countries with mountains and water.

However, there are two exceptions – Finland and Europe. Finland is a lovely country, but they haven’t been a military threat for a long, long time (although they DID help Hitler in 1941). The same cannot be said about Europe.

When Napoleon invaded Russia, he did it through Poland.

When Hitler invaded Russia, he did it through Poland.

Because of the Carpathian Mountains.

The Carpathian Mountains

The Carpathians extend from Poland to almost the Black Sea and make it virtually impossible to invade Russia from Europe without going through Poland. That is… if you’re coming from the European side of the Carpathians. But, what if Ukraine joins Europe, which they seem to want to do?

Well, since Ukraine is on the Russian side of the Carpathians… those mountains would no longer be a barrier to invasion and would double Russia’s vulnerability. Russia would need twice the army to guard that border. And, Russia cannot afford to support an army of that size.

That is why Russia CANNOT allow Ukraine to fall into the hands of the European Union. So, expect Russia to quietly and firmly up the pressure. If Putin can take back Ukraine by covert means, he’ll do that. If the US and EU block covert action, Putin will send in troops.

Whatever happens, one thing is completely certain. Russia WILL get Ukraine back, no matter what the cost.

Now, how much will the US and EU make Russia pay to get Ukraine back?

I’m not sure that we want to know the answer to that question.

Are you ready for this?

  1. Who would think about invading Russia ? Or any nuclear power ? Would Russia not send its 10000 nuclear weapons on that country immediately ? What kind of a war would that be, other than an effort to destroy humanity worldwide ?

    • Hi alin,

      Very good question, alin.

      I consider evil to be completely insane, and the wars that we have fought to be likewise. All that I can say is that there is a dark and evil game going on, and I believe that it DOES seek the destruction of humanity – as you said.

      May we all walk closely with our Lord through these terrible times.

      Thank you for that comment, alin.

  2. 1.) Do not forget Monsanto!
    THEY are behind this attack on Ukraine,
    already distributing their leaflets to the farmers…
    Russia is the only part of the earth that has no GMO crops.
    Once Ukraine falls, these crops creep into Russia and
    our whole world is finished.

    2.) Klitschko, their “leader” is a german boxer!
    He was born in Ukraine, but left as a kid and IS a german national.
    This explains a lot.

    • Hi Jollean,

      Very interesting point.

      I had not seen the Monsanto connection, so I will keep my eye out for their dirty fingerprints. What a truly EVIL entity!

      Hmmmm… Klitschko is German? Curiouser and curiouser. Could he be an agent of the Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst? (The secret intelligence agency WITHIN the German intelligence agency – the Bundesnachrichtendienst.)

      Interesting thoughts. Thank you, Jollean.

  3. Hi John,

    Gen 13:12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.

    I believe there are two types of Christians in the last days: Those who live by faith like Abraham and those who “pitch their tents toward Sodom” like Lot.

    If you absolutely must live in a big city because of your finances, or your health, or family, etc., etc., you may only escape with your life if you have somebody like Abram praying for you.

    • Hi Michael Haller,

      Very, very true.

      I also know of good Christians who know what’s coming, but their ministry keeps them from leaving their place of service.

      Some of us will need to sacrifice our lives to serve the Lord because we cannot leave behind the precious souls that God has entrusted to our care. May God give us wisdom in these days.

      Good comment, Michael. Thank you.

      Yours in Christ,

  4. I find your assessment to be accurate but do you think Putin is desperate enough to invade the Ukraine to prevent it’s joining the EU? Is Russia ready to engage in such a widespread and expensive campaign?

    • Hi The One,

      Well, a ‘full-blown invasion’ would be the last option for Putin. Expect him to use the cheapest alternatives first. And, when I say ‘cheapest’, I don’t mean in terms of money.

      And, it’s not an issue of desperation. It’s complete pragmatism.

      It’s like chess. And, Putin is playing to win.

      He actually doesn’t have a choice.

      Thank you ‘The One’.

      Yours in Christ (The Only One!)

  5. hi, yes i agree with your strategic analysis — and there’s a reason the carpathian mountains are associated with vampirism, the demonic, etc.

    the russians have learned, the hard way, to be cautious and even paranoid when it comes to land defense, ww2 and stalingrad are still pretty fresh there

    the carpathians are the main frontal defense to the west for russia — read your Scripture, there will be MANY land wars in the endtimes, and russia knows this

    the usa/EU is trying to back-annex ukraine to open a potential southern land-front, as well as merely to strengthen the overall globalist strategy that full inclusion of the ukraine would facilitate

    this illustration from wikipedia well-illustrates the true “nature” of those long-haunted mountains

    i’d call the entity a salamander/serpent, guarding its “egg” — note that it faces AWAY from russia, in a defensive or guarding posture — both its weapons, poison fangs and tail, are aimed directly at the west

    thanks for the thoughtful piece, i’ll look into some of your other works if i can

    be about our Father’s business and about the praise of Jeshua his son, cheers

    • Hi Ray,

      I think that you are right that the Euro-American alliance is interested in breaching the Carpathians and setting up a jumping off point for an attack on Russia. However, it appears that this is not the strategy that they are pursuing at this time. For instance, NATO has not been reinforcing their forward bases in preparation for combat.

      But, it is early days.

      Thank you, Ray.

      • hi john —

        your detailing of these tactical mini-moves is helpful, thank you

        the larger picture is the widening spiritual and cultural abyss between US/EU and russia plus satellites

        we have an inversion of the situation 40 years ago — the US is now the world’s primary purveyor and enforcer of Communism, albeit under the modernized form of feminism and identity-marxism, with the LGBT and abortion horrorshows tossed in

        meanwhile, Russia has rejected the collectivism and social totalitarianism that the US, Europe, GB, and the West have adopted as law and custom, the idolatries of ideology — including rejecting america’s willful destruction of fatherhood, sonship, and family (Scriptural markers of antichristic activity)

        fascinating to now watch putin and russia turn back to family, traditionalism, and rejection of the degenerate, wasteful, selfish babylonism of america and the west

        given the direction of these two nations, where would the LORD likely side? yeah, that’s what i’m thinking too


        • Hey Ray,

          I see this too.

          Please note however, that Russia is still a product of the Russian Mafia. I was once a part of an organization that had to deal with them for a very, very short time, and I can tell you that they are very, very bad news.

          Over the next couple of years, I think that we’ll be getting a better picture of who and what they are.

          Good comment, Ray. Thank you.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

          • Hi John, yeah, thanks for that timely warning.

            Unfortunately, I agree that the RM and old KGB structures still administer Russia, and it’s only by compare with the culturally void U.S. that Russia appears positive and traditional. I must say, however, that for all his mal-influences and faults, at least Putin comports like a man. As opposed to U.S. leaders.

            The Sino-Russian regions and people long have been overshadowed by the red dragon, tho there are many sub-principalities over regions/nations. The LORD may use these nations/peoples to punish America, or other entities, but that does not mean we should trust or admire them.

            If Putin and Russia publically dedicate their nation to Jeshua of Nazareth, then, maybe we can talk.

            I won’t hold my breath on that one.


  6. A secondary get for US/EU/NATO in Ukraine would be the introduction of GM crops, which have been rejected up to now. MonSatan is evil incarnate.

  7. Article is nothing but ruSSian propaganda, cuz ruSSia invade Ukraine, ruSSia annexed Crimea, ruSSian troops kills Ukrainian, Lemkos, Rusyns!!! ruSSians are nowadays nazi
