Mind Control Symbolism in Russian Pop: Vintage’s “Mikkie”



Mind Control Symbolism in Russian Pop: Vintage's "Mikkie"

On the Vigilant Citizen, we have shown time and time again that mind control symbolism is found in pop music acts. This disturbing trend is not, however, only confined to American artists. Mind control-related themes and symbols can now be found in pop music all across the globe, as a result of the globalization of popular culture. We will look at the themes exploited by one of Russia’s most important groups, Vintage, and explain their hidden meaning.

As seen in previous articles on The Vigilant Citizen, mind control symbolism is often found in the videos of young sexy pop stars who are on the rise. In most cases, the stars take on the role of the mind control victim in the videos, making the symbolism relating to it seem cool, sexy and desirable, while the idea of mind control is unconsciously planted in the minds of young people. Many videos depict rather vividly the harsh reality of being  “puppets of the industry”, to a point that it is all out in the open, but most viewers remain clueless because they can’t see past the thin veil of symbolism found in the videos.  This phenomenon is not only found in America, but in all parts of the world: in this case, the Russian pop group Vintage (Винтаж).

The group—Anna Pletnev, singer and composer Aleksey Romanov and dancer Svetlana Ivanov—released a single titled Mikkie, containing all of the aspects of the Illuminati agenda.  The themes of mind control, alter-personas, abuse, sexualization, and dehumanization can all be found in this video, as well as in some of their previous works. So, before we get to Mikkie, we will quickly look at two previous videos.

Previous Works

Since their debut in 2007, many of Vintage’s singles have contained some sort of commentary on social issues, like prostitution and abuse. References to mind control were also present, although the way those references were presented, the videos seemed to denounce it.

Loneliness of Love – Одиночество любви

This single portrays the singer Anna as a doll who is forced to live the life dictated her “handler”, played by a little girl.

Anna shown as a doll in a package. Mind control slaves are often portrayed as dolls or puppets as they are controlled by a “handler”

The little girl places a naked “action figure” next to Anna, a reference to sex forced on mind control slaves to gain privileges

The lyrics of the song also point toward the futility of conformity and of a life dictated by someone/something else. The best translation of the song I’ve found is probably not 100% accurate, but it is enough to convey the gist of the song. Here’s a particularly significant excerpt:

And after? After
we’ll press the button on the remote
And go to heaven easily and neatly
Curved mirrors
Well, those whom we love
we’ll never be with
Why we have forgotten
that we’re people

At the end of the video, Anna breaks the white ribbons holding her, representative of her mind-controlled state.

Sleepwalker Girls (Девочки-лунатики)

This song describes the harsh realities of a prostitute, as prostitution is a huge issue in Russia. Embedded in the video are symbols relating to mind control: prostitution, ritual abuse and slavery often go hand in hand in Eastern Europe.

Anna gets beaten by a Jon, who then throws money at her.

Broken mirror representative of her fractured personality, fractured life

At the end of the video, Anna is shown giving the doll to her daughter, showing that she went through all of that crap to give her things. The doll also represents Anna’s core persona, which she transmits to her daughter, hoping she will lead a better life.

New Album

The group’s new album, Sex (very subtle marketing), seems to be targeted to a younger crowd and the social commentary seem to have been replaced by outright Illuminati symbolism, on par with what is found in Western pop music.

Cover of the album Sex. Going past the fetishist theme of the cover, the blindfold also represents the “veil” in front of mind-controlled victims eye’s, while the candles allude to the ritualistic nature of sex with MK victims.


At face value, the song is a commentary on popular culture and  mass production. The authors also say it is a tribute to Michael Jackson. There is another very important issue described in this video: mind control. As seen in previous articles, Mickey Mouse (especially the Mickey Mouse hat) is often used as a code for mind control in popular culture. The involvement of Disney and Disney movies in mind control programming have been documented by Fritz Springmeier (you can download his books for free here).

Many of the recent Disney movies and cartoons are used in a two-fold manner:

  • desensitizing the majority of the population, using subliminals and neuro-linguistic programming
  • deliberately constructing specific triggers and keys for base programming of highly-impressionable MONARCH children.

– Ron Patton, Monarch Programming

This video makes full use of the Mickey Mouse = mind control code. Mikkie (Mikey Mouse) is a symbolic representation of the artist’s alter personality—the mind-controlled facade—programmed to be a shallow entertainer.

The video starts with a happy family running into Mikkie and finding its dismembered parts on the street. More on that later.

We are then taken to a Mikkie production factory, where entertainers are mass-produced.

The subject of control wakes up to be programmed. A close-up shot of her eye reveals that she had been “computerized” or “robotized”. Furthermore, the entire choreography and the mannerism of the singers and dancers are extremely robotic and mechanical, which puts an emphasis on the soulless, dehumanizing atmosphere of the setting.

Emphasis on the single eye and mouth shut reveals that the victim is subject to Illuminati mind control. The importance of the single eye is discussed many times in articles on this site.

The subject’s handlers, the ones accomplishing the programming wear monocles (c0vering one eye), a symbol of power and of Illuminati control.

In this scene, the subject seems to be giving her “essence” to her Mickey Mouse clones. Notice the “leopard” pattern on her body a reference to  “sex kitten” programming in mind control, also known as beta programming.

Mind Control Symbolism in Russian Pop: Vintage's "Mikkie"

“This is the second Greek letter, and it represents the sexual models and sexual alters that the Programmers are creating. The primitive part of the brain is involved in this type of programming. […] Beta alters generally see themselves as cats.”
– Fritz Springmeier, Deeper Insights into the Illuminati Formula

Mickey Mouse is then taken out of the factory and into the “real world”. Mikkie becomes Anna (the singer) and she holds a lit candle in a scene that hints to her self-destructive nature.

Mind Control Symbolism in Russian Pop: Vintage's "Mikkie"

It would be interesting to note at this point that Omega programming in mind control relates to self-mutilation and suicide, which causes the subject to effectively “self-destruct” on command or in particular situations.

OMEGA. A “self-destruct” form of programming, also known as “Code Green.” The corresponding behaviors include suicidal tendencies and/or self-mutilation. This program is generally activated when the victim/survivor begins therapy or interrogation and too much memory is being recovered.

– Ron Patton, Monarch Programming

Right after she symbolically lights herself on fire, the scene of the car hitting Mickey is shown again. On the street we only see Mickey’s “costume” (not Anna’s body) on the street. Is this an attempt by Anna to break free from her programming?

Mickey Mouse—Anna’s alter personality programmed to entertain the masses—is then shown dancing somewhere in Russia with everyday people. She is in her “entertainment mode”.

Mind Control Symbolism in Russian Pop: Vintage's "Mikkie"

After the crowd is gone, we see Anna standing at the same bus stop, almost nude, seeming depressed and in pain. Even if her Mikkie persona is happy and cheerful, the “real Anna”, her core personality is sad, broken and in pain. And cold.

In Conclusion

Vintage is another example of the globalization of the symbols and themes found in the world’s pop music. Way beyond being the simple the result of a trend, the repeated and constant messages found in videos across the world reflect the presence of an effective agenda in global mass media.

Vintage’s last album, combining kiddie themes and music with overt sexuality and dehumanization, brings to the masses of Russia and Eastern Europe the themes the elite want the world-wide public to be exposed to, but with a “local flavor”. The same way McDonald’s adapts their menus to fit the local culture, Illuminati themes and symbols are communicated to the masses using local artists, who speak the local language and to whom people can relate. By slowly erasing the differences between cultures to instate a global, mass-consumption culture, the New World Order is not presented to the people through the voice of a stern dictator, but with the smiley face of Mickey Mouse.

A random thought

I do wish people would stop with using the word Illuminati for everything that is occult related, with this reasoning even the church comes under this banner, the reason i mention this, is because The Veil is mentioned within this article. The Illuminati is one of these veils used by certain groups. The Illuminati is the whole majestic 12 document thing again! it's a miss-direction technique used to waste researchers time and effort in chasing ''Red Herrings'', yes i know there is people in the world who call themselves such and even documented evidence, but the majority do not and this very vague term now used gives them more room to move and do what they like! Oh it was the Illuminati again etc….. so i fully disagree with the use of this term as it lumps all society's into one group and never gives an idea of who is actually responsible for certain actions ! A bit like this site V.C. you name and shame the artists (the puppets) and don't really seem to touch on those who are actually responsible (producers, financiers, directors, corporations, CEO'S etc…. ) it would be nice to see some of these people exposed… Read more »


the girls blindfold says 'f--k me'! and that is for the younger audience that is disgusting


I'm not a girl But not a boy A plastic dream I'm not a toy I live and I will never die Forever young Forever number one Mickey (10x) Mouse (4x) Mickey (10x) Mouse (3x) M-Mouse, Mouse Here I am My life belongs to corporations All the space and stars can be my decorations yeah I'm Mickey, Mickey Mouse (Ouw) Play with me And you will see i'm not expensive I want you I hope you want me too so be my guest I'm Mickey, Mickey Mouse Mickey Mouse Here I am My life belongs to corporations.

Enough said.


Привет! Мы из России. Спасибо за обзор, дружище!
Hi, we are reading you and we are from Russia. Thank you!


People wanting to reply first = ego. Lower your ego people. People want to be number one just to be noticed. Deconstruct the ego, it's a part of being free from this evil system in place. Would make a good article, yeah?


You all act like it's a choice for these girls……. It's not.

You have no idea the kind of torture they've unwillingly endured to make this s--t.

So before you make judgments, like, "Wow, they're going to Hell! How could they do that?!"

Realize that it's life or death for these girls already– they've been ritualistically raped since they were the age of the young girl in the video, and probably younger. Look it up.

Hey Guys

I see now that the so called world elite have hijacked something. What it is exactly I do not know but this hijacking has given them full control of the Global Mind or Global Ego. Through this they control all of our minds and egos. It sounds strange I know but I truly think this whole thing is so huge that its on this type of scale. The only way out is to realise that we are neither our mind ie our( thoughts) or our ego or our (emotions). We are unconditional Love.


The "leopard print" is actually Mickey Mouse's head. D:

Jaosn Davis

I think it would be a grave error to think these symbols are being used to control a fraction of society who have been subjected to extreme mind control.

They are ancient geometric symbols found in nature used to manipulate and control ALL of society. We have all been subjected to mind control, believe it or not. It makes no difference to me.


I remember when I first saw russian music videos on t.v, I was very impressed with the quality of the videos, obviously very expensive… but most kinda x-rated… I was wondering how did they get such money if their market is very small… they get only money from touring because all music in Russia is pirate and they play clubs not huge stadiums… I think whoever is financing this record labels and artists is definately dark… Look at this piece of "art", see what I'm talking about, it's Seryoga "Disco malaria"… I think Disco Malaria describes the new "decease" of the russian population… the lack of morals. Anorexia and obsession with beauty, love of money (even turning into a mail order bride to get a husband with money), fornication, no faith, drugs… I was once talking to an old lady and she told me her generation was over the top shocked with the moral debacle going in Russia. She said people changed and capitalism came to tear down everything they had built. Alcoholism and promiscuity becoming major concern. Hitler couldn't conquer Russia, but this disgusting music could. It's really sad. And look at this "pearl" it mixes russian culture… Read more »


You're absolutely right. It's a fact that Russian music business is unprofitable, yet the videos get more & more expensive & the number of Russian music channels constantly grows. What's even more amazing not a single governmental body puts any effort in fighting piracy. I used to think it was due to negligence, but know I am pretty confident it is deliberate policy. I mean what if all DVDs & CDs were licensed? – The majority of the populace would not be able to buy them. But since the pirate produce is extremely cheap – crappy Russian & Western music & Hollywood trash have been spreading for the last decade like virus! The corruption, dehumanization & degradation this virus has been inducing is enormous. I'm not an old lady, I'm only 25 years old & even I am truly shocked with the current levels of morality & integrity, especially among younger generation. Although I have to say that there are young people, who start to wake up & denounce the NWO propaganda (sometimes confusing it with US propaganda though), just wish there were more of them.


En la primera muñeca, se nota que la muñeca tiene cuerpo de hombre…o sea esa muñeca es un varón transexualizado, un tranny. siendo este aspecto el más ignorado por las masas…todas las famosas o al menos la gran mayoría son trannys, haciéndose pasar por mujeres…la época de los castrati no ha pasado. Para el efecto del presente articulo la cantante es varón.


Corrección: En la primera muñeca, se nota que la muñeca tiene cuerpo de hombre … o sea que la muñeca es un varón transexualizado, un tranny. Este aspecto es el más ignorado por las masas … todas las famosas o al menos la gran mayoría, horrywood los está haciéndose pasar por mujeres … la época de los castrati no ha pasado. Para el efecto del presente articulo el cantante es varón.




what i don't understand, is why do people say it's the illuminati making these symbols. Isn't it the artist/record label trying to "quietly" hint at what is going on with the world???


Also note the occasional screaming of the word "ow," which could be a reference to jackson, but the startled tone says otherwise, more like electroshock.

But damn that song is catchy XD


Damn, I thought Russia was anti-Illuminati? 


Amazing article mr. Vigilant, as always.

I've always disliked the way pop stars nowadays are selling themselves to the masses. There are lots of artists who began with their own style and suddenly, change to a more 'selling' appearence, specially female artists who begin to show more skin and become 'sexual objects' in order to atract the masses. With your articles i understand now that sex is just a way to dumb the masses with the hidden concepts you point (because we are humans, and it awakens our primary instinct. The easiest way to convince us something is 'cool').

Thank u very much for making this articles and try to give us the oportunity to question the validity of our pop-culture and everyday bombarded media stereotypes.

PD.: Sorry, i dont have a correct english

PD2: It's amazing how many ppl starts to dicuss things OUT OF CONTEXT. This space is not for dicussing religion or races issues. There are lots of forums out there in the internet in which you can yell all you want.

If you want to say something here, try it to be something RELATED TO THE ARTICLE.
