The Fascist Danger in Ukraine. Resurgence of Neo-Nazism Denied by Western Media

A politically sinister propaganda offensive is underway in the media to either deny the involvement of fascists in the US-backed coup in Ukraine or present their role as a marginal and insignificant detail.

The New York Times, for example, asserted, “Putin’s claim of an immediate threat to Ukrainian Russians is empty,” while Britain’s Guardian dismissed as a “fancy” claims that events in Crimea were an attempt to “prevent attacks by bands of revolutionary fascists,” adding that “the world’s media has [not] yet seen or heard from” such forces.

This is an obscene cover-up.

The reality is that, for the first time since 1945, an avowedly anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi party controls key levers of state power in a European capital, courtesy of US and European imperialism. The unelected Ukrainian government, headed by US appointee Arseniy Yatsenyuk, includes no fewer than six ministers from the fascist Svoboda party.


In 2010, Svoboda’s official forum posted a statement reading: “To create a truly Ukrainian Ukraine in the cities of the East and South…we will need to cancel parliamentarism, ban all political parties, nationalise the entire industry, all media, prohibit the importation of any literature to Ukraine from Russia…completely replace the leaders of the civil service, education management, military (especially in the East), physically liquidate all Russian-speaking intellectuals and all Ukrainophobes [...], execute all members of the anti-Ukrainian political parties….”


NOTE TOO: Ukraine is the forth largest arms exporter in the world behind the USA, Russia and China.


Could this fact be behind the wests desire to control the Ukraine? The EU is offering a bail out package via the IMF. These bailouts always come with conditions of privatization of industries and banks. Is the west interested in controlling the arms industry of Ukraine? Would this control mean selling this industry into private holdings?
Nationalism or naziism.

Russia is fond of calling any nationalists in states that were in the old USSR who object to Russian rule, fascists or Nazis. Most often it is used to conjure up hatred just because they have no other reason to insist that people should be controlled by Moscow. Nazis are anti sematic but I doubt there are any Jewish people left in Russia. As for fascists well the Russian Oligarchs who run Russia would probably qualify as fascists because they behave the same way. Russia's treatment of the Ukraine in the deliberately created famine in 1930 to 1933 that caused the starvation of about 7 million people, forfeits any rights Russians thought they might have over the Ukraine. The only surprise is that it is taking so long for Ukrainians to sever ties with Russia completely. I guess that is because the Ukrainians are always undermined by the Russians who settled in the Ukraine and Crimea after the locals were shipped into exile by the hundred thousands to die of starvation and cold in the Gulags and in Siberia.
This is shocking considering Harpers stand on the issue
Comment by MWPR on 6th March 2014
Canada's Prime Minister recently travelled to Israel and spoke in such glowing terms the Knesset (Israeli parliament) delivered numerous standing ovations.

The Party in power now in Ukraine is brutally anti-Jewish yet Harper has pushed the country of Canada into the position of being prepared to militarily support this newly 'self appointed' government.

This is completely contradictory.

Is Harper understanding this? What does Israel think of this stand by Canada?

Neo-Nazi is a strange term. Maybe a better term is 'skin head' or 'red neck' or maybe 'right wing fundamentalist', just like 'Muslim fundamentalists' or 'Al-Qaeda'.

Right wing fundamentalism is how many perceive the actions of the current government in Canada. this may be behind the Canadian government position to support the Right wing fundamentalism of the new Ukrainian Government. yet the clearly defined anti-Semitic' position - the actual Fascist stance claimed by the new party in power in Ukraine, is clearly not favourable to Israel.

I see trouble brewing from all sides.
