The rise of the far right in Ukraine is one of the most disturbing trends in 21st century Europe. But it’s a story you rarely get to read about in the British press.

On the three year commemoration of the tragic shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH-17, Brisbane, Australia based Watchdog Media has released the most thorough and accurate chronological portrayal of events occurring between the start of Ukraine’s Euromaidan in November 2013 and the tragic destruction of Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 on July 17, 2014.
Between 2013 and 2017, the Watch Dog Media Institute compiled and archived the largest known video volumes of first-person video related to the Ukraine war, as well as the largest and most substantial amount of all mainstream media footage related to such.

Ever since serious protest broke out in Ukraine in February the Western mainstream media, particularly in the United States, has seriously downplayed the fact that the usual suspects – the US/European Union/NATO triumvirate – have been on the same side as the neo-Nazis. In the US it’s been virtually unmentionable. I’m sure that a poll taken in the United States on this issue would reveal near universal ignorance of the numerous neo-Nazi actions, including publicly calling for death to “Russians, Communists and Jews”. But in the past week the dirty little secret has somehow poked its head out from behind the curtain a bit.

You won’t see or read about them on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The New York Times, or virtually any of America’s other propaganda-media, except that these people are “terrorists,” and that they thus constitute threats to U.S. national security; but, here they are, speaking for themselves, which America’s propaganda-media won’t let you hear, because the U.S. Government — the regime in Washington — actually created these “terrorists,” when it overthrew their government via U.S.-manipulated “Maidan” protests in February, and replaced it with ours, which bombed their homes; so, you’ll now see and hear these people, right here:

Western Ukraine’s “anti-terrorist operation” against rebels in Eastern Ukraine has the makings of what could degenerate from scattered atrocities to ethnic cleansing to genocide. It already is a nasty war to suppress an ethnic minority through the use of military force, complete with references to the targeted population as insects and animals.

Here are photos of residents in southeastern Ukraine and of their homes that we bombed yesterday, and you see the corpses, and the grieving survivors. But Americans call them “terrorists,” even though these people never were that, and even though America is funding the terrorism against all the residents in southeastern Ukraine, to force them to either die or else flee, so that they won’t be able to vote in future Ukrainian elections, and so that the government we installed in a February coup in Kiev will stay installed, even if Ukraine becomes again a democracy. The residents in that region had voted overwhelmingly for the President whom we overthrew on February 22nd.

Significant protests against the war being waged in eastern Ukraine by the governing regime in Kyiv are taking place by the conscript soldiers of the Ukraine army and their families, friends and supporters. The protests are entirely unreported in mainstream, western media. They take on a renewed urgency as a result of Kyiv’s July 1 announcement that it is ending a ten day ceasefire and resuming its military assaults against the towns and cities in the east.
The following article is a report on some of theses antiwar protests and on the harsh crackdown on democratic rights that accompanies the NATO-backed war that began in earnest in April.

It’s a video showing the inside of Odessa Trades Unions Building while hundreds of people who opposed Obama’s coup that had overthrown Ukraine’s freely elected President (the last President who was elected by the entire country) were murdered by Obama’s thugs, on May 2nd. This incident in the Trade Unions Building was even more violent than Kiev’s February coup itself, and it sparked Ukraine’s civil war, because it reeked of “genocide” (both intent and action) against the vast majority of residents in southeastern Ukraine, who (like those victims) don’t want to be ruled by people who wished them dead. But unlike those victims, they now know to a certainty that this indeed is the intent of the people whom Obama has made their leaders.

The violent coming to power of a rightist regime in Kyiv, Ukraine in late February 2014 has opened an exceptionally dangerous political period in Europe. For the first time since World War II, a European government has representatives of fascist parties as ministers. These are the ministers of the armed forces, prosecution service and agriculture, and deputy ministers of national security (police), education and anti-corruption.
