Kiev’s Ivan Kudrya Street to become John McCain Street

Alex Boxman

Pyotr Poroshenko’s recent proposal to change the name of Kiev’s Ivan Kudrya street to John McCain Street betrays the hidden Nazi agenda among Ukraine’s junta.

Ivan Kudrya was Soviet Kiev’s hero during the fight against the Nazis during the Great Patriotic War (Second World War). He was an essential figure in the Kiev Resistance: he blew up a movie theatre full of German soldiers, derailed trains and when caught, was tortured and killed by the Gestapo.

He also fought against the Western Ukrainian nationalists and Nazi collaborators. Their descendants and followers now, those who want to “cleanse” Donbass and pro-Russian South-Eastern Ukraine, want to remove his name (along with the memory of that anti-fascist resistance) from Ukraine’s history books, which they are re-writing.

This time they have gone as far as suggesting that had the Germans not been “provoked” by the Resistance (and people like Ivan Kudrya) then tragedies such as Babi Yar (where the German Nazis killed 150 thousand Jews) supposedly wouldn’t have happened, as the Nazis wouldn’t have had to retaliate!

The fact that killing innocent people, one of the most horrific crimes of the Holocaust, cannot be called “retaliation” and even such a hypothesis is moral turpitude – doesn’t bother these Nazi apologists. But why doesn’t it bother their US “sponsors”?! Are McCain’s family members OK with his name being used as a tool in erasing the memory of those who stopped the Holocaust?

The following “explanation” was aired on Ukraine’s TV Channel 1 by its top host, BBC trained (!) former BBC World Service correspondent Mykola Veresen (real name Nikolai Sytnik). According to his diabolical “explanation” when Ivan Kudrya and other Red Army partisans started blowing up houses on the Khreshchatyk, the Germans decided that it was the Red Army’s NKVD.

“The Germans [thought] – Veresen “explains,” – “that if you are NKVD, a Red, you are a Jew. And then they thought that the inhabitants of Kiev would treat it [the extermination of Jews] with favour. So the Germans then thought: we will now kill them all , and the people of Kiev will be not against that”, the TV host concluded his insane and blasphemous “hypothesis” of what caused the tragedy. In other words, the world should have submitted itself to the Nazis – then there wouldn’t have been any “losses.”

When the USSR, Britain, and America were allies in the most terrible war in human history, the Washington Post wrote:

One shudders to think what would have happened had the Red Army collapsed under the pressure of the German attackers, or if the Russian people had been less indomitable and courageous.”

British newspapers wrote:

Were it not for the Red Army, the fate of the free peoples of the world would be far more gloomy.”

Winston Churchill himself confirmed:

It was the Red Army that tore the guts out of the German war machine.”

But now what’s being written? Why do Russia’s former allies now align themselves with those in Ukraine who support former Fascist collaborators and sympathisers such as Stepan Bandera? Do McCain’s family or the Republicans, in general, approve the idea of his name being used by those who deny the Holocaust (along with denying the role of the Red Army in liberating Ukraine from the Nazis)?!

This position, stated by Veresen, was strongly criticised by the director of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee Eduard Dolinsky. His view has not been heard on Ukrainian or on US TV nor has it been published in the New York Times.

So, who is the Holocaust denier here and who is denying those honest Jewish voices in favour of pleasing Ukraine’s Nazis …perhaps because they are useful in fostering the new Cold War against Russia?

    In commemoration of this great honor, can the street be painted red and a black swastica every ten meters with John McCain’s name on each arm. This evil man McCain and his murderous associates deserve to be remembered for the next century as the foul humans they were.

  2. Apologies, I was going by memory and should have said Syngenta , (not Monsanto, though not much difference in practice, lol) in my comment & knew immediately full well upon re-reading my copy .. the following link should help clarify any confusion I may have created .

    https://gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/17572-syngenta-defends-gmo-corn-as-merger-shifts-blame-to-china-s-door

    Once again apologies. The main thing is the factual side of Ukrainian History , which is seemingly getting lost, in the propaganda wars to rename “the street with no-Name” >> as U2 would say 😉

    Hell yeah > No-Name Street sounds better , a no-Brainer , Logic 🙂

  3. What better way to get funding from the IMF ! ?

    Kowtow to the Propaganda McChain & Training of Thought !!!

    Simples >> suck ‘No-Name’s’ dead dick ..

    Simply re-write history & Celebrate inanely >> the history that proves & substantiates that the insane ‘no-Name’ (McCain) was the self-declared ‘owner’ of a completely redundant Racist & Facist war-mongering mentality, throughout his whole god-damned pathetic existence: one sick mind, that could never be described as an intellect and one simple mind, that voted SIX TIMES consistently against imposing sanctions against South Africa and their Apartheid regime ..

    No-Name was a war-glory-boy Fascist & Racist thug in both character & principle , who believed in >>

    APARTHEID !

    What more do you honestly need to know, FFS !

    Let’s be quite clear about this: it is entirely in order that the Ukrainians inadvertently or wittingly honour this thug & fascist, racist mentality, because it shows perfectly honestly & clearly , how poorly educated & aware they are, also in factual history most recent, specifically within the Ukrainian Government and controlling organs of governance there @present & how they , as people, prefer to respect propaganda , Fake News , myths & fables, the IMF , the CIA, NATO & Outright Lies & Liars ..

    This too shall pass, as the real Ukrainians begin to understand why , how & what happened in the absence of them having a President, Prime Minister & Government back in 2013/14. . . nothing !(democratically elected without any foreign interference) , when deals were stuck by the likes of Obama, Joe Biden , Guy Verhofstadt & Shell &&& many many others..

    with NO FUCKIN’ GOVERNMENT in place ..

    WTF , what a farce and you Ukrainian Trolls here can go fuck yer’ selves even more in the proverbial, hey, and why don’t you invite Hunter Biden, from Burisma Holdings , to the Glory-boy Gangbang .. you complete & utter ‘Pederashti’ . . .

    Better, re-name that street in memory of Alex Zakharchenko, who was actually building something truly independent of the IMF & honourable, with a view to honouring contractual arrangements with Russia for a Black Sea Port >> but, it will unfortunately take time & great personal cost for Ukrainians now, paying back the IMF and their Washington backers of U$A P.i. Political interference, before the real Ukrainian people rise to full comprehension of what tragically happened to their Sovereign State : a state that was once able to accommodate the Chinese with 600,000 Tonnes of GMO Free Corn at short notice, in 2014, when the Chinese cancelled their contract with the U$A (as per contract , No GMO Corn) and sent their ships to the Ukraine instead, to replace the shortfall ..

    https://www.allaboutfeed.net/Raw-Materials/Articles/2014/1/Ukraine-corn-may-replace-US-corn-in-China-1442190W/

    Of course, US Farmers & Monsanto were furious, but, after all, GMO Corn is simply said , genetically modified .. and the Chinese are historically speaking, quite good at chemistry & testing ‘Tings & Times’ & inventing products like Gunpowder and just great at the long game, in terms of Markets & Intelligence . . .

    & Geo-Politics.

    One day, the average Ukrainian will become much wiser to their own tragic most recent history & subsequent destiny; but until then , it will remain a very sad story of utterly corrupted collusion & confusion, due to foreign interference & external forces of Energy, that will dilute & re-construct the true history & Ukrainian culture that lies undercover @Will , in the Lame Stream Media.. just like the outcome of the 5 Million pieces of weaponry , (Russia’s Cold-War depository) that were stored in Slavyansk, which most seem to have conveniently forgotten . . .

    what happened there ! ?

    Needless to say Balky recalls being censored, because the Guardian , FT &&& OSCE suddenly had no desire to discuss such matters further, publicly: Armaments that were ideal for arming Terrorists and counter insurgence operations, especially in Syria, via Turkey, which all fell conveniently geographically in line with NATO Ops. and didn’t even need IMF funding or backing, officially . . .

    The Legacy of IMF dealings with the Ukraine should be clear to all, by now . . .
    (Balky yawns, widely) . . . Unfortunately ‘Tis Not !

    it’s all about Financial Control of Bankrupted Mechanisms,
    by Financially & Morally Bankrupted Mechanisms 😉

    The appalling British Defence Secretary, whose name I don’t want to remember, was in Ukraine yesterday… on the ‘frontline’ in the East facing the Russians. He promised increased military assistance, so Ukraine could defend itself against Russian aggression. He also made a direct link between events in Ukraine and the Russian ‘chemical attack’ on the streets of Salisbury! That alone shows how significant that event was… the Skripal Affair, and indicates motive and, at the least, how far the UK government has gone in milking the affair for every drop of propaganda venom possible; yet I’m sure the Guardian and Luke Harding will choose to ignore these ‘revelations.’

    • Every time I hear more about Gav … oops, the British Defence Secretary, I pity his daughter (at least until news arrives that the maternity ward nurse made a mistake with her) and the pet spider for having to put up with him every day.

    • Donald Trump tweeted, today, that the declassified ‘Russiagate’ docs promised recently will be released not immediately, but ‘soon’:
      “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe. Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release … ”
      One wonders who the key Allies are.

  5. According to Pavel Sudoplatov, who ran agents and hit squads all around the world from 1938 to 1953 (most notably the network that penetrated the Manhattan atomic project, as well as managing the Trotsky assasination) , Kudrya was also the rezident in Kiev, and penetrated the Abwehr, sending much useful intelligence to the Soviets until he was betrayed. Sudoplatov’s agent-wife Emma trained Kudrya in spycraft.

    • In what sense is it nonsense, Pavel?
      Are there any factual inaccuracies to be pointed out?
      Is Oleh Tyahnybok being satirical?
      Or just asking a question?
      Nobody here wants to fall for Russian propaganda, please help.

    • Ay di beh , Pavka ! ? Kade ce ? Informirai ni , molya

      Pavel, it is customary when asked pertinent questions , relating to your comment, (such as Bevin’s, who has so respectfully & delicately phrased himself), to respond and illuminate us all ..

      Zum Antworten ! Verstehst du ? Auch Deutsch ?? Wahrscheinlich , sicher schon . . . 🙂

    • The two photos above offer a small clue, Terry. The gentleman performing the nazi salute can also be seen on the left, sharing a platform with McCain.

        As seen with McCain 2014 Oleh Tyahnybok leader (Fuhrer) of the ultra-nationalist political party Svoboda(1) (Social-Nationalist Party) leading figure both during and after the coup which ousted Yanukovich, along with other neo-nazi outfits such as Right Sector (Praviy Sektor) led by Hitler wannabee Dmitry Yarosh who spearheaded the coup in Kiev; these have been joined or changed their names to inter alia the Radical Party, and Patriots of the Ukraine. These neo-nazi outfits have been supplemented by the fully militarised punitive right-wing militias, most notoriously the Azov Regiment responsible for numerous atrocities in the Don Bas.

        (1) The Social-Nationalist party as it was formerly known chose as its logo an amended version of the Wolfsangel, a symbol used by many SS divisions on the Eastern front during the war who in 2004 a celebration of the OUN-UPA, stated in 2004, that ‘’they fought against the Muscovite, Germans, Jews and other scum who wanted to take away our Ukrainian state.’’ And further that ‘’Ukraine was ruled by a Muscovite-Jewish mafia.’’ Tyahnybok came under pressure from the then President, Yuschenko, to retract his inflammatory statements, which he did, but he then retracted the retraction!

    • Here’s a Tweet by John McCain where he notes his meeting with Andriy Parubiy, co-founder with Oleh Tyahnybok of the Social-National Party of Ukraine (forerunner of Svoboda) in 1991 and the current Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada.

      https://twitter.com/SenJohnMcCain/status/875434192833785856/photo/1

      Parubiy is a certifiable card-carrying Nazi who once said that the greatest man ever to introduce what he (Parubiy) calls “direct democracy” was … Adolf Hitler.

      Looks like Insane McCain had a fair bit to do with Nazis.

  6. Ukraine definitely is dead end street?

    McCain Street, surely a dead ringer for a Nazi enabler!

    How about: Junta’s Lodge Straße.

    Where, oh where, are all those anti-Semitic accusers at the Guardian when you need them?

    Expect a great silence on this…

    You can count on the Israelis for a ‘full’ service: Supplying arms and training, refining the ideology, weaponize public relations and of course re-badging of landmarks. A sprinkling of history wouldn’t go astray.
