Ukrainian nationalists have seized power!

Ukraine the first nationalist state?

Maybe it was a bait and switch — we want to join the EU, we want US help to get in power, they accept Soros’s help, then they turn around, get power, and become a Nationalist state? Maybe they fooled all of us? That video is awesome! I’m not so depressed about Ukraine any more.

Is the U.S. Backing Neo-Nazis in Ukraine?
Exposing troubling ties in the U.S. to overt Nazi and fascist protesters in Ukraine.
February 24, 2014 |
As the Euromaidan protests in the Ukrainian capitol of Kiev culminated this week, displays of open fascism and neo-Nazi extremism became too glaring to ignore. Since demonstrators filled the downtown square to battle Ukrainian riot police and demand the ouster of the corruption-stained, pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich, it has been filled with far-right streetfighting men pledging to defend their country’s ethnic purity.

White supremacist banners and Confederate flags were draped inside Kiev’s occupied City Hall, and demonstrators have hoisted Nazi SS and white power symbols over a toppled memorial to V.I. Lenin. After Yanukovich fled his palatial estate by helicopter, EuroMaidan protesters destroyed a memorial to Ukrainians who died battling German occupation during World War II. Sieg heil salutes and the Nazi Wolfsangel symbol have become an increasingly common site in Maidan Square, and neo-Nazi forces have established “autonomous zones” in and around Kiev.

An Anarchist group called AntiFascist Union Ukraine attempted to join the Euromaidan demonstrations but found it difficult to avoid threats of violence and imprecations from the gangs of neo-Nazis roving the square. “They called the Anarchists things like Jews, blacks, Communists,” one of its members said. “There weren’t even any Communists, that was just an insult.”

“There are lots of Nationalists here, including Nazis,” the anti-fascist continued. “They came from all over Ukraine, and they make up about 30% of protesters.”

One of the “Big Three” political parties behind the protests is the ultra-nationalist Svoboda, whose leader, Oleh Tyahnybok, has called for the liberation of his country from the “Muscovite-Jewish mafia.” After the 2010 conviction of the Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk for his supporting role in the death of nearly 30,000 people at the Sobibor camp, Tyahnybok rushed to Germany to declare him a hero who was “fighting for truth.” In the Ukrainian parliament, where Svoboda holds an unprecedented 37 seats, Tyahnybok’s deputy Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn is fond of quoting Joseph Goebbels – he has even founded a think tank originally called “the Joseph Goebbels Political Research Center.” According to Per Anders Rudling, a leading academic expert on European neo-fascism, the self-described “socialist nationalist” Mykhalchyshyn is the main link between Svoboda’s official wing and neo-Nazi militias like Right Sector.

Right Sector is a shadowy syndicate of self-described “autonomous nationalists” identified by their skinhead style of dress, ascetic lifestyle, and fascination with street violence. Armed with riot shields and clubs, the group’s cadres have manned the front lines of the Euromaidan battles this month, filling the air with their signature chant: “Ukraine above all!” In a recent Right Sector propaganda video [embedded at the bottom of this article], the group promised to fight “against degeneration and totalitarian liberalism, for traditional national morality and family values.” With Svoboda linked to a constellation of international neo-fascist parties through the Alliance of European National Movements, Right Sector is promising to lead its army of aimless, disillusioned young men on “a great European Reconquest.”

Svoboda’s openly pro-Nazi politics have not deterred Senator John McCain from addressing a EuroMaidan rally alongside Tyahnybok, nor did it prevent Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland from enjoying a friendly meeting with the Svoboda leader this February. Eager to fend off accusations of anti-Semitism, the Svoboda leader recently hosted the Israeli Ambassador to Ukraine. “I would like to ask Israelis to also respect our patriotic feelings,” Tyahnybok has remarked. “Probably each party in the [Israeli] Knesset is nationalist. With God’s help, let it be this way for us too.”

In a leaked phone conversation with Geoffrey Pyatt, the US ambassador to Ukraine, Nuland revealed her wish for Tyahnybok to remain “on the outside,” but to consult with the US’s replacement for Yanukovich, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, “four times a week.” At a December 5, 2013 US-Ukraine Foundation Conference, Nuland boasted that the US had invested $5 billion to “build democratic skills and institutions” in Ukraine, though she did not offer any details.

“The Euro-Maidan movement has come to embody the principles and values that are the cornerstones for all free democracies,” Nuland proclaimed.

Two weeks later, 15,000 Svoboda members held a torchlight ceremony in the city of Lviv in honor of Stepan Bandera, a World War II-era Nazi collaborator who led the pro-fascist Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B). Lviv has become the epicenter of neo-fascist activity in Ukraine, with elected Svoboda officials waging a campaign to rename its airport after Bandera and successfully changing the name of Peace Street to the name of the Nachtigall Battalion, an OUN-B wing that participated directly in the Holocaust. “’Peace’ is a holdover from Soviet stereotypes,” a Svoboda deputy explained.

Revered by Ukrainian nationalists as a legendary freedom fighter, Bandera’s real record was ignominious at best. After participating in a campaign to assassinate Ukrainians who supported accommodation with the Polish during the 1930’s, Bandera’s forces set themselves to ethnically cleanse western Ukraine of Poles in 1943 and 1944. In the process, they killed over 90,000 Poles and many Jews, whom Bandera’s top deputy and acting “Prime Minister,” Yaroslav Stetsko, were determined to exterminate. Bandera held fast to fascist ideology in the years after the war, advocating a totalitarian, ethnically pure Europe while his affiliated Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) carried out a doomed armed struggle against the Soviet Union. The bloodbath he inspired ended when KGB agents assassinated him in Munich in 1959.

The Right Connections

Many surviving OUN-B members fled to Western Europe and the United States – occasionally with CIA help – where they quietly forged political alliances with right-wing elements. “You have to understand, we are an underground organization. We have spent years quietly penetrating positions of influence,” one member told journalist Russ Bellant, who documented the group’s resurgence in the United States in his 1988 book, “Old Nazis, New Right, and the Republican Party.”

In Washington, the OUN-B reconstituted under the banner of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), an umbrella organization comprised of “complete OUN-B fronts,” according to Bellant. By the mid-1980’s, the Reagan administration was honeycombed with UCCA members, with the group’s chairman Lev Dobriansky, serving as ambassador to the Bahamas, and his daughter, Paula, sitting on the National Security Council. Reagan personally welcomed Stetsko, the Banderist leader who oversaw the massacre of 7000 Jews in Lviv, into the White House in 1983.

“Your struggle is our struggle,” Reagan told the former Nazi collaborator. “Your dream is our dream.”

When the Justice Department launched a crusade to capture and prosecute Nazi war criminals in 1985, UCCA snapped into action, lobbying Congress to halt the initiative. “The UCCA has also played a leading role in opposing federal investigations of suspected Nazi war criminals since those queries got underway in the late 1970’s,” Bellant wrote. “Some UCCA members have many reasons to worry – reasons which began in the 1930’s.”

Still an active and influential lobbying force in Washington, the UCCA does not appear to have shed its reverence for Banderist nationalism. In 2009, on the 50th anniversary of Bandera’s death, the group proclaimed him “a symbol of strength and righteousness for his followers” who “continue[s] to inspire Ukrainians today.” A year later, the group honored the 60th anniversary of the death of Roman Shukhevych, the OUN-B commander of the Nachtigall Battalion that slaughtered Jews in Lviv and Belarus, calling him a “hero” who “fought for honor, righteousness…”

Back in Ukraine in 2010, then-President Viktor Yushchenko awarded Bandera the title of “National Hero of Ukraine,” marking the culmination of his efforts to manufacture an anti-Russian national narrative that sanitized the OUN-B’s fascism. (Yuschenko’s wife, Katherine Chumachenko, was a former Reagan administration official and ex-staffer at the right-wing Heritage Foundation). When the European Parliament condemned Yushchenko’s proclamation as an affront to “European values,” the UCCA-affiliated Ukrainian World Congress reacted with outrage, accusing the EU of “another attempt to rewrite Ukrainian history during WWII.” On its website, the UCCA dismissed historical accounts of Bandera’s collaboration with the Nazis as “Soviet propaganda.”

Following the demise of Yanukovich this month, the UCCA helped organize rallies in cities across the US in support of the EuroMaidan protests. When several hundred demonstrators marched through downtown Chicago, some waved Ukrainian flags while others proudly flew the red and black banners of the UPA and OUN-B. “USA supports Ukraine!” they chanted.

    I think we’re eventually going to end up with an East Germany/West Germany type of situation here. Instead of the US/UK and the USSR empires dividing up the territory, it’s going to be the EU and Russian empires this time. The nationalist see the EU as their only savoir against the influence of Putin and they’re probably right.

    The Ukrainians have along way before they can ever have a nation of their own again. Such is the fate of a landlocked country in crisis between superpowers.

  3. I’ve found Paul Craig Roberts to be an authoritative source on a variety of subjects. He fears WWIII. His article on the Ukraine is here: http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/02/23/democracy-murdered-protest-ukraine-falls-intrigue-violence/

    Quote
    The Right Sector did not overthrow the Ukraine government in order to deliver it into the hands of the Washington and EU paid “opposition.”

    There is a tendency to discount the Right Sector as a small fringe group, but the Right Sector not only took control of the protests away from the Western supported moderates, as moderate leaders themselves admitted, but also the Right Sector has enough public support to destroy the national monument to the Red Army soldiers who died liberating Ukraine from Nazi Germany.

    Having interfered in Ukraine’s internal affairs and lost control, Washington is now issuing ultimatums to Russia not to interfere in Ukraine. Does the idiot Susan Rice, Obama’s neoconservative National Security Advisor, think Putin is going to pay any attention to her ultimatums or to any instruction from a government so militarily incompetent that it was unable to successfully occupy Baghdad after 8 years or to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban after 12 years? In only took a few hours for Russian troops to destroy the American and Israeli trained and armed Georgian army that Washington sent to invade South Ossetia.

    Where does Obama find morons like Susan Rice and Victoria Nuland? These two belong in a kindergarten for mentally handicapped children, not in the government of a superpower where their ignorance and arrogance can start World War 3.

      Rice is a leftist ‘groid, Nuland a neo-con Jewess. Enough said. Well, not quite enough. If anyone in Sodom-on-the-Potomac thinks Putin (or the Ukrainian Nationalists) is going to yield one square inch of the Ukraine to the US/Euro Zio-Bankster gang, they better think again. Otherwise, the missiles will fly. .

    That sounds great, but keep in mind that Klichko, Timoshenko, et al are a bunch of jooz. And while a nationalist state is great in theory, it’s existence in today’s world of super powers is always in peril without committed protection from one of the powerhouses. I cite Israel, and North Korea as examples of protected ethno-nationalist states. OTH, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran are at the mercy of the whims of great powers.

    So while the Ukrainian nationalists talk a good game, they are both strategically short sighted because their nationalism is defined as opposition to Russia (and by extension the South and East of their own country) and they seem to have successfully been used by YKW as shock troops, and now can be marginalized yet again.

    I’m very interested however in what Russia will do now. The Olympic Games are over, Putin must now get back to the business of empire and make hard decisions.

  5. 1rw says:

    P.S.
    Ukraine’s future must be with Russia if it is to have one, here’s why:

    I’ve come to realize that while nationalism seems antithetical to empire, its long term survival depends on creating a powerful empire, able to resist military and financial pressure from any other world power. Anything less must ultimately be subsumed by a greater imperial power. This is obvious enough if one studies history.

    This empire must reconcile two opposing principles, strong national identity on the one hand, and a unifying spiritual and ideological doctrine on the other. In other words, a universalism that protects parochialism.

    In light of this, Orthodox Christianity and Russia are currently the best hope for the white race to develop such an empire. Orthodox Christianity manages precisely the sort of universal parochialism that Catholicism and Protestants fail at. There’s a church for Russians, and a church for Greeks, etc… They are the same yet different, and answer to different Patriarchs and different nations; as opposed to an international priesthood that cares about all of God’s children. As far as Russia being the core of this empire’s state power, I say this because Putin is so far the only head of state that has publicly expressed concern for the shrinking numbers of whites, and worked to raise his country’s native birth rate and reassert traditional morality. This puts Russia light years ahead of any other significant white government (England, Germany, France) The U.S. may not even belong in this group anymore.

    In conclusion, Ukraine, while a large relatively well developed country on its own, is between two Empires. It cannot really be neutral, but it can perhaps choose which orbit to fall into, the Empire of suicidal liberalism or the Empire of Orthodoxy

    • Hauer says:

      Russia might be good for them now, but how about in 50 years? I would not be so sure that Russia will continue to go down the path Putin wants it to. Russia has always been a country that has struggled between being an Asiatic despotic empire or being a state with a European tradition in art and religion.

      The last time Russia had control over Ukraine, the holodomor happened. I don’t blame Ukranians for wanting the EU with that precedent.

      • StukaPilot says:

        there’s no evidence “they” “want the EU”. They wanted to get rid of a corrupt Russian stooge. They did so.

      • 1rw says:

        Russia, while it does occasionally flirt with Western liberalism and other such notions is not ever going to be just another Western country like France et al. It is a huge empire with different problems to solve and must find its own way. This Asiatic despotism vs Western values view is silly, it’s predicated on Eurocentrism. European values ultimately lead to white genocide, so must be reexamined.

        As far as holodomor, it happened in the east, pro Russian part. Western Ukraine( hardcore anti-Russia) wasn’t even in the USSR at the time. It was one incident in a long history of membership of the Russian empire, not the pattern.

        50 years is a long time, France might be a black country by then. The way it’s going now, EU is headed into a Camp of the Saints re-enactment, Russia is reasserting traditional (functional) culture. It looks like it will be there fifty years from now to screw up.

      • Wally says:

        “The last time Russia had control over Ukraine, the holodomor happened.”

        Russia didn’t have control over Ukraine, the Jewish run Soviet Union did. The Soviet officials who carried out the Holodomor were jewish. The Soviet Bolshevik system was a jewish created, jewish financed and, at that time, a jewish run system.(It was only later that jews lost much of their total control in the top level of government.) It is Bolshevik jews who are responsible for the Holodomor, not the Russian people.

      • mindweapon says:

        I’m not stating this as fact, I’m saying it as the reasoning that the Western Ukrainians are using. They name the Jews as well. CCCP means 3 Jews and a Russian over there.

        One can say it was 25% Russians who are responsible, approximately, and 3/4 Jews, just by the numbers. A percentage of Gentiles willingly work for them every time, including now.

    “White supremacist banners”
    They want all white areas. How do you supremacize/oppress someone who isn’t there? How is separation supremacy?

  7. Rita Rabbit says:

    Absolutely amazing! Winning!

  8. Wyandotte says:

    Anybody excited about the Right Sector being in charge is living in a fool’s paradise.

  9. Craig says:

    Very informative and interesting comments. Perhaps the Nationalists will split the country in two, rather then civil war. Either way they need a model that projects into the future.

  10. 0jr says:

    jew nationalists run by mossad agents

  11. fnn says:

    Galicia should have full autonomy with central govt only retaining control over defense and foreign affairs. Galicia should have its own legal system, its own education system and the right to bear arms. At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
