Vladimir Kirillovich was one of the “Vladimirovichi”, descendants of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, younger brother of Tsar Alexander III. In 1938, Vladimir was Grand Duke and purported Tsarevich. Nazi Germany apparently wooed Vladimir to be their puppet monarch in Ukraine. But Vladimir Kirillovich, Pretender to the Russian throne, declined being Hitler’s puppet monarch in Ukraine. (Background: Attack of the Vladimirovichi, Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of August 31, 2014.)
Anna Anderson claimed to be the surviving Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. This claim flew in the face of Bolshevik stories about a “mass execution” in Ekaterinburg in July 1918. (For background on Bolshevik “mass execution” yarns see “If You Can’t Trust a Bolshevik…”, the Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of September 6, 2014.)
Circa 1937, in Germany, the Nazi government contacted Anna “Anastasia” Anderson. The Nazis may have been acting on behalf of Russian monarchist groups. Anna tried to hide from the Nazis at that time. 
Lord Louis Mountbatten worked against Anna. Was he trying to help conceal the Tsar’s large deposits in the Bank of England? The British royals would have been mighty embarrassed if this were the case and Anna succeeded in her claim. 
In late 1940 or early 1941, Anna was personally summoned by Adolph Hitler. This time there was no way she could avoid the meeting. In the Reichstag building, Hitler bowed to Anna and addressed her as “Your Imperial Highness”, at least according to Anna. “I have investigated the case,” said the Führer. “I am convinced of your identity.” Hitler allegedly wanted to restore the Romanovs in Russia. 
This alleged Nazi plan to restore a Tsar or Tsarina to the Russian throne would have been part of “Operation Barbarossa.” Operation Barbarossa, which was launched on June 22, 1941, was the code name for Germany’s invasion of the Soviet Union. Presumably, Anna “Anastasia” Anderson was being sought by Hitler as a figurehead monarch to assist the subjugation of Russia.
In 1979 Col. Maximilian Hartmann’s secret expedition to Antarctica recovered the sacred Spear of Longinus in preparation for a planned Fourth Reich.  This “Fourth Reich” is to be the seventh incarnation of the Holy Roman Empire. Rome is the land of the seven hills. The Book of Revelation warns, “[T]hey are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he comes he must remain only a little while.” (Revelation 17: 10)
Five kings (Justinian, Charlemagne, Otto the Great, Charles V, Napoleon Bonaparte) had fallen. One (the Rome-Berlin axis) is. The seventh and last “king” of the Holy Roman Empire signifies Vatican-German rulership of the European Union. The Vatican would dearly love to see the rival Russian Orthodox (and Greek Orthodox) Church gone, thereby increasing Rome’s power. On August 17, 2011, an article in Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper concluded, “Where Hitler failed by military means to conquer Europe, modern Germans are succeeding through trade and financial discipline. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.” 
Assisting the plan against Russia, which is refusing to be a doormat for the Fourth Reich plan, could be descendants of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, younger brother of Tsar Alexander III, a.k.a. the Vladimirovichi. Just as Germany had previously sought to lure Vladimir Kirillovich and Anna “Anastasia” Anderson into its orbit, so now Maria Vladimirovna, Grand Duchess of Russia, might be sought. She has been a claimant to the headship of the Imperial Family of Russia and pretender to the titles Empress and Autocrat of All the Russias (historically the modern states of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland), since 1992. 
Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia (image at top with mother and Pope Benedict XVI) is the heir apparent to Maria Vladimirovna. Grand Duke George uses as his title of pretension Tsarevich and Grand Duke of Russia with the style of Imperial Highness. 
But will Grand Duke George and his mother, Maria Vladimirovna, be seduced into the role of puppet monarch? Or will they, like Vladimir Kirillovich (their grandfather and father, respectively) in 1938, refuse the compromise as beneath noble honor? One way to preempt any such plot would be for Russia themselves to allow an authentic ceremonial Tsarship, having only advisory powers, for either Grand Duke George or Maria Vladimirovna.
