Babi Yar Airstrike in Kiev

Babi Yar MemorialMarch 1, 2022 (Day 60):  A missile from a Russians airstrike on a 1300 foot radio and television tower in Kiev struck the adjacent Babi Yar Holocaust Memorial site.  Two missiles were fired at the tower.  The first hit the tower but did not topple it.  Five people walking by were killed, and some of broadcasting channels were damaged.  The second missed the tower and struck buildings in the Jewish cemetery at the memorial site.

The Babi Yar memorial is on the mass grave of the 33,771 Jews from Kiev who were killed in the nearby Babi Yar ravine by Nazi SS troops in two days in 1941.  In the months that followed thousands more were executed.  Over 100,000 Kiev residents from all ethnic groups were estimated to have been killed by the Nazis in World War II.

Before the Russian airstrike the Russian defense ministry announced that there would be an attack on Ukraine's intelligence services infrastructure in Kiev.  The TV tower was not destroyed in the attack, and the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial itself was not damaged although buildings on the site were set on fire. 

The irony was not lost on Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, who is Jewish.  The Babi Yar memorial was set up so the world would never forget; yet, after 80 years, he noted as Ukraine faced the threat of the Russian army alone that the world has forgotten.

The name Babi Yar was first used in connection with an old woman ("baba") who was a cantiniere to the Dominican Monastery.  A cantiniere ran a store so soldiers could buy amenities not readily available from the army.       

Spiritual Meaning

The Russian attack on Kiev's intelligence infrastructure was an excuse for the Russian invaders to attack anything associated with Ukrainian collection and  dissemination of information, including both military and civilian communication.  However, as the Russians set out to blow up the infrastructure of Ukrainian cities, things didn't go according to plan.  The attempt to take out the Kiev broadcasting tower failed.  That was undoubtedly due to the intervention of Elect Angels in the Spiritual World who took Satan's missiles astray.  Nothing is an accident in the Spiritual World. 

The crescent Moon just entered Aquarius today.  Aquarius also contained the Almighty God planet, for a broadcaster (wide dissemination of information).  The Russians didn't decide to shoot at the broadcasting tower on March 1 as the Moon entered Aquarius.  The devil put it in their minds, and demons controlled their thinking with opposition from Elect Angels.  The result was that the tower was not destroyed, and the second missile missed the  tower and hit the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial site and set buildings ablaze in memory of a holocaust. 

ValleyThe Babi Yar ravine where at least 33,771 Jews were killed in two days is next to the Holocaust memorial.  The ravine is the valley of death, and one of the meanings of the year 2022 is cursing in the valley.  The objective of the Russian invasion of Ukraine is obviously Kiev, and a 40-mile-long convoy of Russian vehicles is snaking its way to Kiev from the North.  The intent is to lay siege to the city.  Is there going to be another holocaust?

The situation in Kiev is too big and bad to be the work of a person or even a mad man.  This is bigger and more sinister than Putin.  It is the work of Satan.  Satan is the mastermind behind this story.  It is not simply the Fifth Cycle of Discipline of the nation of Ukraine.  Putin started a war, but Satan is behind it.  Putin is in over his head. 

Ukraine is facing impossible odds, a doomsday scenario just as Israel will face in the Armageddon War.  Kiev is facing the cursing of the valley of death in 2022.  Ukraine has a long history of suffering and death at the hands of many tyrants.  Satan has operated in Ukraine for centuries to foment rebellion.  Ukraine has opposed many things, including the communists and the Russian Orthodox Church, but that doesn't make it right.  The conflict with Russia is not about right and wrong.

EuropeUkraine is on the border of  Europe and Asia.  In the Client Nation Model it is in the region of the ruler (Lion of the Tribe of Judah).  This would be the home of the Antichrist of the Tribulation.  President Zelensky has requested membership in the European Union, and he would like to be a member of  NATO, which is the major source of disagreement with Russian President Putin. 
As concluded before, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is symbolized by the Four Horses of the Apocalypse.  President Putin in his role as commander of the Russian military symbolized the King of the North who will go out to conquer in the Tribulation (Rev 6:2).  He was symbolized by the White Horse of the Apocalypse.  The invasion of Ukraine was the symbol of the Red Horse of the Apocalypse (Rev. 6:4).  The economic sanctions imposed by President Biden and the European leaders symbolized the Black Horse of the Apocalypse (Rev 6:5, 6). 

However, the scenario of the Ukraine invasion differs from the events of the Tribulation.  In the attack on Ukraine President Putin is actually  behaving like the future Antichrist head of the European Union who will attack three of the kings who opposed him (Dan 7:24).  In this respect Putin is trying to restore the former Soviet states like the Antichrist.  In fact, Putin has aligned himself with the Russian Orthodox Church as a replacement for the Roman Catholic Church of the Revived Roman Empire. 


Babi Yar BombingThe Chart at the time of the Russian airstrike of the Babi Yar Holocause memorial contains a Bow with three groups of three  planets along the Descendant on the Temporal side  of  the Chart  The Bow is a weapon for shooting with all the planets aligned in one direction.  It is an offensive weapon corresponding to the plane that fired the missile on the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial.  The three groups of three planets symbolize raising the X, Y, Z group of Babylon to a higher power, corresponding to the plagues of the Cosmic System (Babylon).

The Sun was on the Descendant in Aquarius, for the Antichrist, corresponding to Russian President Putin as the Evil  King.  The Moon had just entered Aquarius, for a group with a  common ideology, such as communists or Ukrainians.  The major source of the  conflict between Russia and Ukraine is their ideologies.  The Ukrainians are resisting Russia and aligning  themselves with the Europeans.  Ukraine occupies the place corresponding to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah in the Client Nation Model of Europe.  This corresponds to the head of the Beast (Rev 13:1-3).

The Mediator Planet was in Aries, for an official or a founder.  Over the  centuries many have claimed to be the founder of the city that is now called Kiev by the Russians.  However, Kiev has rejected association with Lenin (and communism) and removed his statue from the city.  This is at odds with its association with the homeland of Russia as Putin thinks.


The Russian airstrike that hit the Kiev radio and television broadcast tower came on March 1 as the Moon entered Aquarius.  The Almighty God planet was also in Aquarius, for a broadcaster.  This indicates the Plan of God in the war in Ukraine.  In addition there were three groups of three planets, corresponding to plagues of the Cosmic System, like the plagues of Egypt.  The COVID-19 pestilence was a judgment of Satan's Cosmic System and so is the war in Ukraine, where the cursing is designed to destroy Satan's kingdom, the Cosmic System.

The missile strike of the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial was near the Babi Yar ravine, or valley of death.  This pointed to the meaning of the year 2022, for cursing.  The Ukrainians are facing the cursing of Russian Army from Satan.  Satan's power is like a wall that makes a person sick in the pit of the stomach and bowels (ref. Lam 1:20).  Yet in the face of death the Ukrainians have chosen death over slavery to Putin's Russia.  They have a better army that is  more  modern than Russia, but they cannot compete in size and power.  Their only hope is the Grace of God, but they don't know God.

In the Spiritual World Satan is controlling Putin, and the Elect Angels (Michael and Gabriel) are supporting Zelensky even though Putin may be a Christian and Zelensky is an unbeliever.  Michael is giving the Ukrainians success over the Russians on the battlefield, and Gabriel is demoralizing the Russians and exposing their lie (from Satan).  This is also a test for Ukrainian Christians like the test of the Church at Smyrna (Rev 2:10).

The Russian invasion of Ukraine symbolizes the attack of the Evil King Antichrist upon the Prostitute of Babylon in the Tribulation (Rev 17:16)
.  President Putin corresponds to the Evil King Antichrist, and Ukraine corresponds to the Prostitute of Babylon, who rules the civil government.  The capital Kiev corresponds to Babylon.
