Vladimir Putin and his generals are following a blueprint laid out by a neo-fascist political scientist to replace the United States as the world superpower.
The Kremlin is following a detailed plan to replace the United States as the world superpower. Astonishingly most American leaders do not understand this reality. Like former United States President Barack Obama, they dismiss Russia as a “regional power” attacking nations like Ukraine from a position of weakness, instead of strength. Their assessment could not be more wrong. The 2014 conquest of Crimea was actually a calculated step in Russia’s strategy for world domination.
And this strategy was drawn up years in advance.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is following a blueprint laid out in a 1997 book by neo-fascist political scientist Aleksandr Dugin: The Foundations of Geopolitics (pictured). This book is required reading for every Russian military officer above the rank of colonel. Yet despite its importance, it has never been officially translated into English. Just as world leaders ignored Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf in the 1930s, they are ignoring this manifesto today. This will prove to be a tragic mistake.
Dugin glorifies Russia’s czarist and Stalinist past, and espouses an ideology of “national bolshevism.” This ideology fuses Russian nationalism, Bolshevik socialism, Eastern Orthodox Christianity, and a touch of mysticism.
The Foundations of Geopolitics reads like a to-do list predicting Putin’s behavior in international relations. While there are still some boxes unchecked, Russia is striving to make progress toward its ultimate goal: unseating the United States as the world’s lone superpower. This should not come as a surprise to anyone who truly understands Bible prophecy.
“Russia is the most dangerous and aggressive nuclear superpower in the world today,” writes Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry in his booklet The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia.’ “Surely that means Russia must be discussed in Bible prophecy. If you know its ancient biblical name, you can find prophecies about this nation in the Old and New Testaments.”
These prophecies reveal the outline of Russia’s strategy for world domination, and much more. So while American leaders are naive to ignore The Foundations of Geopolitics, they really need to study The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia’ alongside their Bible. It reveals how Russia is going to play an instrumental role in the downfall of the United States. And that the devil is behind it all.
Atlanticism vs. Eurasianism
Dugin’s manifesto begins by claiming that land-based and sea-based powers are in a state of permanent struggle against each other. Land-based nations like Germany, Iran and Russia represent “Eurasianism,” while sea-faring nations like the United States and Britain represent “Atlanticism.” For Eurasianism to defeat Atlanticism, Dugin claims that an anti-American coalition of nations must be established, including Germany, Iran, Japan and other countries in Europe and Asia.
This theory was inspired by Karl Haushofer, the German geopolitician who popularized the term lebensraum (living space). After Hitler came to power, Haushofer advised an alliance between Germany, Russia and Japan. Since Dugin holds America responsible for the collapse of the Soviet Union, he especially wants Russia to ally with Germany against the United States.
This plot to undermine America is not just a crackpot theory concocted by a Russian mystic. The famous British geopolitician Sir Halford Mackinder delivered a lecture in 1904 titled “The Geographical Pivot of History.” He argued that whichever nation rules Eastern Europe would rule both Eurasia and the world. German geopoliticians like Friedrich Ratzel and Karl Haushofer seized upon Mackinder’s theory. Now Russian geopoliticians like Lt. Gen. Nikolai Klokotov and Dugin are doing the same. If a Russo-German alliance can subjugate Eastern Europe, it will have power enough to challenge America and Britain.
Specifically, Dugin believes Russia needs to recapture its former Soviet satellites. Dugin advises the Russian government to annex Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Ukraine and all nations with an Eastern Orthodox majority.
Land-based nations like Germany, Iran and Russia represent “Eurasianism,” while sea-faring nations like the United States and Britain represent “Atlanticism.”
Putin agrees. He invaded Georgia in 2008. He invaded Ukraine in 2014. He effectively annexed Belarus and Kazakhstan with the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union in 2015. Now he is working toward additional annexations to create a Russian-dominated empire capable of working with other European and Asian powers against America.
“In principle, Eurasia and our space, the heartland Russia, remain the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution,” Dugin writes in The Foundations of Geopolitics. “The new Eurasian empire will be constructed on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control of the U.S.A., and the refusal to allow liberal values to dominate us.” Yet rather than provoke a direct military confrontation with the U.S., Dugin advises Russian leaders to build power and influence through alliances with other Eurasian powers.
These ideas are guiding Vladimir Putin—and it is all happening just as Bible prophecy forecasts.
The Old Testament book of Ezekiel refers to an end-time personality called the “chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” Students of Bible prophecy know that the peoples of Meshech and Tubal settled in modern-day Russia. So the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal is the leader of Russia in the end time. In Ezekiel 38:1-2, God instructs His watchman to prophesy against this leader.
“God’s watchman warns the nations of Israel in particular about the danger of Russia and China, and how events in these nations are all going to end,” Mr. Flurry writes in The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia.’ “God specifically warns three nations of Israel—America, the British peoples and the Jewish state in the Middle East.” He later explains how Putin is a former kgb agent animated by a spirit of vengeance against the U.S. and out to restore the Russian empire. Dugin’s book explains the tactics Putin is using to accomplish this goal; Mr. Flurry’s booklet explains Putin’s role in prophecy and the ultimate inspiration behind the Kremlin’s actions.
The Foundations of Geopolitics promotes the formation of a Moscow-Berlin alliance, a Moscow-Tehran alliance and a Moscow-Tokyo alliance. General Klokotov noted in the 1990s that the greatest periods of peace in Russian history were during times when Russia was allied with Germany. He is rumored to have recruited Dugin to write The Foundations of Geopolitics as a training manual for Russian officers based on his advocacy for a Russo-German alliance.
“The task of Moscow is to tear Europe away from the control of the U.S. (nato), to assist European unification, and to strengthen ties with Central Europe under the aegis of the fundamental external axis Moscow-Berlin,” writes Dugin. “Eurasia needs a united, friendly Europe.” In return for Germany’s rejecting nato and joining a Russian alliance, Dugin proposes that Russia help Germany gain political dominance over the Catholic and Protestant nations of Europe. He notes that both France and Germany have a “firm anti-Atlanticist tradition” that Russia can exploit to accomplish this objective.

International relations expert George Friedman gave a speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs in February 2015. He explained that the U.S. government works to prevent a German-Russian alliance because the combination of German technology with Russian natural resources could create a power bloc with the capability to challenge America’s position as the world’s lone superpower. Russian politicians and military strategists understand this, and projects like the Nord Stream Pipeline are designed to utilize German technology to transport Russian natural resources into Europe.
As Dugin writes in The Foundations of Geopolitics, Russia and Germany “must decide all disputed questions together and in advance.” The goal of the Russian General Staff is to ally with Germany to destroy nato and defeat America.
Bible prophecy shows that these two powers will initially have great success in accomplishing this goal, before they turn on each other. “The Germans made a pact with Russia before it started World War ii,” Mr. Flurry writes in The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia.’ “This treacherous history is going to repeat itself in the near future. It is the way they do business!”
In his September 2018 Trumpet article, “Germany and Russia’s Secret War Against America,” Mr. Flurry elaborated on this point by prophesying that cooperation between Germany and Russia is setting the scene for a huge “seething pot” to spill over and scald the people of America and Britain (Jeremiah 1:13-15). Everyone in America needs to see what is really happening in Germany and Russia.
Russia recognizes that Iran is the most influential nation in the Middle East. In order to lure Iran into an…
