A spreading stain/ in the Ukraine

Posted by Charles II on April 17, 2015

Robert Parry, Consortium News:

The U.S.-backed Ukrainian government came up with a curious way to commemorate the 70thanniversary of the Holocaust being brought to an end. The parliament in Kiev voted to extend official recognition to Ukrainian fascists who collaborated with the Nazis in killing Jews.

…On April 9, the Ukrainian parliament passed a bill making the ultra-nationalist Ukrainian Insurgent Army eligible for official government recognition, a demand that has been pushed by Ukraine’s current neo-Nazi and ultra-nationalist movements, the same forces that spearheaded the overthrow of elected President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014 and then the slaughter of thousands of ethnic Russians who resisted the new order.

It now appears that pro-government “death squads” are operating with impunity in Kiev.

Ukraine was the site of several major Holocaust atrocities including the infamous massacre at Babi Yar in Kiev, where local Ukrainian fascists worked alongside the Nazi SS in funneling tens of thousands of Jews to a ravine where they were slaughtered and buried.

I’m not sure what to make of the neo-Nazi presence in Ukraine. It’s not hard, for example, to find neo-Nazis in the American military. They send their guys there to train for the grand RaHoWa. The difference is when government starts to sanction this sort of thing. The Kiev government is so desperate and so anti-Russian that they are sanctioning way-out-of-the-box things just to keep from falling. But at some point one has to ask whether the people in charge are being expedient– or whether they support neo-Nazism.

We should also be asking the American government where they stand… especially since it is alleged that the U.S. military will be training the Azov Battalion.

    especially since it is alleged that the U.S. military will be training the Azov Battalion.

    I’ve also read they start training on hitlers birthday, how nice. Busy day but try and out if this true later.

      The Kyiv Post says training begins on April 20th. Wikipedia says that is Hitler’s birthday.

      Look where it landed Hitler. I suspect the same will occur to anyone who thinks that Hitlerian tactics can accomplish anything except destruction.

      In terms of understanding what is going on, I urge you to read Robert Parry’s comment in a recent discussion thread. It reads in part,

      Lynne, as I’ve reported in previous articles, the Ukraine crisis doesn’t help President Obama’s approach to the world at all. Prior to the crisis, he had teamed up with President Putin …But those important assists were resented by the neocons who wanted war and regime change in both cases. So, they moved Putin up the list of targets, and key neocons — such as NED’s Carl Gershman, Sen. John McCain and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland — took aim at Ukraine as the wedge to splinter the Obama-Putin collaboration. They were extremely effective in this effort — and Obama failed to stand up to their scheming.

      If Parry’s analysis correct, the U.S. government is in a kind of internal civil war, in which the President’s orders are being flouted and undermined.

        Yes I agree with the fight among govt. officials for the foreign policy. Interesting the cia based stratfro has been talking a different path than the normal BS. There seems to be a battle in all govt. agency that have something to do with war. I guess we’ll have wait and see who wins and what means.

        I do hope they can overcome the crazies and work out a deal with Iran. When Iran receives the S-300 from Russia that will change the game as far as israel is concerned.

        Then again with these stories being lame stream press are the reporting at all on TPP?
