The U.S. has Installed a Neo-Nazi Government in Ukraine
IsraPundit ^ | March 02, 2014 | Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research,

Posted on 03/03/2014 12:28:18 PM PST by xzins

Ukraine-extreme-droiteAccording to the New York Times, “The United States and the European Union have embraced the revolution here as anotherflowering of democracy, a blow to authoritarianism and kleptocracy in the former Soviet space.” ( After Initial Triumph, Ukraine’s Leaders Face Battle for Credibility,  NYTimes.com, March 1, 2014, emphasis added)

“Flowering Democracy, Revolution”?  The grim realities are otherwise. What is a stake is a US-EU-NATO sponsored coup d’Etat in blatant violation of international law.

The forbidden truth is that the West has engineered –through a carefully staged covert operation– the formation of a proxy regime integrated by Neo-Nazis.


Confirmed by Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, key organizations in the Ukraine including the Neo-Nazi party Svoboda were generously supported by Washington: “We have invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine to achieve these and other goals. … We will continue to promote Ukraine to the future it deserves.”

The Western media has casually avoided to analyze the composition and ideological underpinnings of the government coalition. The word “Neo-Nazi” is a taboo. It has been excluded from the dictionary of mainstream media commentary. It will not appear in the pages of the New York Times, the Washington Post or The Independent. Journalists have been instructed not to use the term “Neo-Nazi” to designate Svoboda and the Right Sector.

Composition of the Coalition Government

We are not dealing with a transitional government in which Neo-Nazi elements integrate the fringe of the coalition, formally led by the Fatherland party.

The Cabinet is not only integrated by the Svoboda and Right Sector (not to mention former members of defunct fascist UNA-UNSO), the two main Neo-Nazi entities have been entrusted with key positions which grant them de facto control over the Armed Forces, Police and National Security.

While Yatsenuyk’s Fatherland Party controls the majority of portfolios and Svoboda Neo-Nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok was not granted a major cabinet post (apparently at the request of assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland), members of Svoboda and the Right Sector occupy key positions in the areas of Defense, Law Enforcement, Education and Economic

Andriy parubiy.jpgAndriy Parubiy [right] co-founder of the Neo-Nazi  Social-National Party of Ukraine (subsequently renamed Svoboda) was appointed Secretary of the National Security and National Defense Committee (RNBOU). (???? ???????????? ??????? ? ??????? ???????), a key position which overseas the Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, National Security and Intelligence. The RNBOU is central decision-making body. While it is formally headed by the president, it is run by the Secretariat with a staff of 180 people including defense, intelligence and national security experts.

Parubiy was one of the main leaders behind the Orange Revolution in 2004. His organization was funded by the West. He is referred to by the Western media as the “kommandant” of the EuroMaidan movement. Andriy Parubiy together with party leader Oleh Tyahnybok is a follower of Ukrainian Nazi Stepan Bandera, who collaborated in the mass murderer of Jews and Poles during World War II.

In turn, Dmytro Yarosh, leader of the Right Sector delegation in the parliament, has been appointed Parubiy’s deputy Secretary of the RNBOU.

Yarosh was the leader of the Brown Shirt Neo-Nazi paramilitary during the EuroMaidan “protest” movement. He has called for disbanding the Party of the regions and the Communist Party.

The Neo Nazi party also controls the judicial process with the appointment of  Oleh Makhnitsky of the Svoboda party to the position of prosecutor-general of Ukraine. What kind of justice will prevail with a reknown Neo-Nazi in charge of the Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine?

Cabinet positions were also allocated to former members of the Neo-Nazi fringe organizationUkrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian National Self Defense (UNA-UNSO):

“Tetyana Chernovol, portrayed in the Western press as a crusading investigative journalist without reference to her past involvement in the anti-Semitic UNA-UNSO, was named chair of the government’s anti-corruption committee. Dmytro Bulatov,known for his alleged kidnapping by police, but also with UNA-UNSO connections, was appointed minister of youth and sports.

Yegor Sobolev, leader of a civic group in Independence Maidan and politically close to Yatsenyuk, was appointed chair of the Lustration Committee, charged with purging followers of President Yanukovych from government and public life. (See Ukraine Transition Government: Neo-Nazis in Control of Armed Forces, National Security, Economy, Justice and Education, Global Research, March 02, 2014

The Lustration Committee is to organize the Neo-Nazi witch-hunt against all opponents of the new Neo-Nazi regime. The targets of the lustration campaign are people in positions of authority within the civil service, regional and municipal governments, education, research, etc.  The term lustration refers to the “mass disqualification” of people associated with the former government. It also has racial overtones. It will in all likelihood be directed against Communists, Russians  and members of the Jewish community.

It is important to reflect on the fact that the West, formally committed to democratic values, has not only spearheaded the demise of an elected president, it has instated a political regime integrated by Neo-Nazis.

This is a proxy government which enables the US, NATO and EU to interfere in Ukraine’s internal affairs and dismantle its bilateral relations with the Russian Federation. It should be understood, however, that the Neo-Nazis do not ultimately call the shots: Under a “regime of indirect rule” they take their orders on crucial military and foreign policy issues –including the deployment of troops directed against the Russian federation– from the the US State Department, the Pentagon and NATO.

The World is at a dangerous crossroads: The structures and composition of this proxy government installed by the West do not favor dialogue with the Russian government and military.The RNBOU

A scenario of military escalation leading to confrontation of Russia and NATO is a distinct possibility. The Ukraine’s National Security and National Defense Committee (RNBOU) which is controlled by Neo-Nazis plays a central role in military affairs.  In the confrontation with Moscow, decisions taken by the RNBOU headed by Neo-Nazi Parubiy and his brown Shirt deputy Dmytro Yarosh –in consultation with Washington and Brussels– could potentially have devastating consequences.

However, it goes without saying that “support” to the formation of a Neo-Nazi government does not in any way imply the development of “fascist tendencies” within the White House, the State Department and the US Congress.

“The flowering of democracy” in Ukraine –to use the words of the New York Times– is endorsed by Republicans and Democrats. It’s a bipartisan project. Lest we forget, Senator John McCain is a firm supporter and friend of Neo Nazi Svoboda leader Oleh Tyahnybok (Image right).

Searching out Israpundit's information, I found this at Channel 4, UK: http://www.channel4.com/news/kiev-svoboda-far-right-protests-right-sector-riot-police

In 2012 the presence of a violent and highly organised far-right in Ukraine and Poland became global news ahead of the Euro 2012 tournament.

The dominance of racist chants, Nazi salutes and neo-Nazi banners among football fans provoked controversy ahead of the tournament, prompting President Yanukovych to promise matches would be closely watched by security services.

Anti-Semitic attacks

The World Jewish Congress has called for Svoboda to be banned for its hardline anti-Semitic stance, and public Jewish events celebrating hanukkah were cancelled last month due to fears of violence, with Jewish leaders urging people to "increase security everywhere".

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish student, Dovbear Glickman, was stabbed while leaving a synagogue last week, suffering massive blood loss. It is the second anti-Semitic assault this month after a Hebrew teacher was followed home from synagogue by a gang before being beaten.

Read the article. Israpundit generally does a good job reporting items of interest to Jews. They're saying the "new" Ukrainian government was anti-Semitic. Channel 4 London was saying the same thing.

Don’t know why the Jewish are pushing this meme, according to Wiki, the Svoboda party holds 5 seats out of 450. I did read somewhere else it’s now 36 seats. Big deal, they don’t want foreigners of any kind including Russians, and Muslims.
Liberal Immigration policies has brought Europe to it’s knee’s. I Can’t blame them for not wanting to repeat those mistakes.

Agreed. Its not the first time either.Obama has done the same in Egypt, and in Libya. He also tried to do it as a sitting senator in Kenya in 2006/2007 ( Orange Party , Kenya)

Buit who reall cares about the trend. We just keep re-electing a thug fascist government.

Ain't that the truth. If Obama and the State-Run-Sycophant Media support something, it seems to me that there is a really good chance that it's the wrong thing to do.

The bottom line with Israpundit is that they generally have their eyes on issues of concern to Israel and Jews: their interest in this is anti-Semitism.

It should be absolutely NO SURPRISE that there are anti-Semites in the Ukraine. That's like saying there are Irish in Boston. It has a long, illustrious anti-Semitic history.

The piece from Channel 4 in Britain also mentions anti-Semitism and is much before this Crimea thing happened.

Jews are a little bit perceptive when it comes to anti-Semitism. You can't blame them for pointing it out.

Putin propaganda.

This is the same old straw man, red herring russian propaganda we have seen for a week or so. There are a few neo nutzies but they are the minority. Jews in the Israel Defense Force are returning and organizing anti Putin/Stalin resistance forces.
Much of the article is old, recycled disinformation that keep getting reposted.
Having several impotent nuts in the Ukraine does not justify another Russian invasion.

Anyone who is a nationalist and to the right in Europe is called a Neo-Nazi. This is a standard smear job by the Left. They call Marine Le Pen a Neo-Nazi, Nigel Farge a Neo-Nazi. It is ridiculous.

Svoboda holds 38 seats out of 450 in Parliament. It got 10% of the vote. There are 15,000 members of the party. It is a minority party that does not represent the views of the vast majority of Ukrainians.

Svoboda IS a neo-Nazi political party.

The full name of the party is “Ukranian National Socialists (copied from the Nazis); their flag is a derivative of the Nazi flag, and their slogan copied directly from the Nazis: “Ukraine for the Ukrainians.”

They fly white-power flags, wear WWII German helmets, and rant about “Jewish influence.”

(This is NOT an endorsement of their opponents.)

AND THIS:

Fortunately for Ukraine’s estimated 350,000 Jews, the third largest Jewish community in Europe, there is Israel. Last week, Russian-born Knesset Member Rina Frenkel, who lived in Kiev before moving permanently to Israel in 1990, sent a letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu, asking him to initiate an immediate rescue effort for Ukrainian Jews, to provide a framework to help Jews emigrate to Israel, and referring to Ukrainian history, which is replete with anti-Semitic murders and pogroms.

I understand. I’m Jewish.

I’m also unwilling to paint a widely varied political opposition to Putinism as Neo-Nazi when it seems that only some of them are.

I’m open to a full political expression of the Ukes in a free vote to see what sorts of parties win what proportions. We can judge and apply actions afterwards accordingly.

The fact that Putinism was thrown out is a general good to me, chosen by the Ukes themselves. Let’s hope that in their wisdom they replace the bad with a different general good.

(Yeah, yeah, “hope is not a strategy” and all that.... but we didn’t, and nobody here is suggesting we put boots on the ground.)

I got lambasted in a thread today for pointing out, we have bad and worse in this situation. Ukrainians were active and enthusiastic collaborators with the Totenkopf SS and in fact had whole divisions in the SS. They gave up their Jews readily and greeted the Nazi Panzers with wreaths of flowers. Sure Stalin starved them but that does not excuse them of their guilt. I know it was a gazillion years ago, but let’s not coronate the Ukrainian people as gentle Western Europeans being occupied by hardline communists. We have one group of corrupt Russian gangsters fighting corrupt Ukrainian gangsters. I say get the popcorn and let’s watch them slug it out.

Other than this Jews as the center of the universe perpsective, we are so used in America to our two party system, where the two parties hold no hard principles except both being for ‘goodness’ and little else, that we are unable to understand countries, most countries in the world, with multiple political parties, each with a strong set of well defined principles and ideas on governing, each with membership of the willing, that is people who not merely and capriciously register to vote as party “members” with no obligations or commitments of any kind, as we do here, but people who sign up and pay dues, while most of the population does not belong to any political party.

Nobody’s clean in this. The supposed surprise of the Western intelligence services (oh please... ), and especially the lack of blood, indicate this was agreed to by all stakeholders beforehand.

It is a tired meme. In this instance, however, it is correct. Svoboda are literal Nazis.

There are only 90,000 Jews in Ukraine. They make up 0.2% of the population.

During World War II, Ukraine lost 10 million people--one-sixth of the population.

This is just me.

I find it rather odd that there are large and active Neo Nazi groups in the parts of Eurasia where the REAL nazi’s ravaged.

Not that I think it is fake, but that it is just very odd. Kind of like finding pro Imperial Shinto groups inside of Korea.

“What proportion of the electorate do they represent?”

Svoboda are small, like their namesake in Nazi Germany was small. They’ve actually been outflanked on the far right by several groups.

That said, Svoboda are the ones leading this.

There’s an interesting article about an Israeli IDF soldier of Ukrainian extraction participating in the fighting, leading a Jewish battalion. He admits Svoboda is Neo-Nazi (and he is taking orders from them), but argues the Communist are worse.

I’ll try to find the link, assuming I can find it in English.
