Who is in charge of Ukraine today?The dominant condescending and appeasing tone towards the new Ukrainian authorities in the West clearly contradicts to its democratic and humanitarian values, it persistently promotes in the world. Any attentive unbiased observer of the situation in this post-Soviet state and the Western policies in the region cannot help but feel a sense of déjà vu when watching transatlantic public declarations in support of “the legitimate Ukrainian government”, brought to the power and still controlled by the radical ultranationalists representing a scarce minority of the population of Ukraine. Indeed, the raise of Hitler in Germany in the early 1930s was carried out using almost identical political technologies and social instruments as in today’s Ukraine. The careful study of the current developments and diplomatic maneuvers around Ukraine would shed a new light on the origins of the Nazi movement in Germany in the last century as well.

7 March 2014 — New Eastern Outlook

Ukraine Nationalist RallyLike the West’s support of sectarian terrorists across the Middle East, including Al Qaeda, it has found the most despicable elements in Ukrainian society to lead “revolution” for the sociopolitical reordering of Eastern Europe. As the dust settles and the West’s proxy regime finds itself safely entrenched in Kiev, Ukraine – the Western media can now finally recuperate some of its lost legitimacy after months of denying the obvious – that armed Neo-Nazis led the so-called “Euromaidan” uprising.
