Ukraine: Far Right Parties Unite for Parliamentary Elections Coalition adopts new slogan that mirrors Nazi’s “Deutschland Uber Alles!”

Avis Krane, via Essence of Time

Please note flags of the Azov Battalion, centre, NATO left, and Nazi, right. None of these people existed until Wednesday.

Six ultra-right and extremist organizations have formed an alliance led by Ukrainian nationalist Svoboda party leader Oleg Tyagnibok, the Svoboda party’s press service reports on June 9.

The coalition includes: Svoboda, the National Corps, the Right Sector ‌(organization banned in Russia), the Ukrainian Volunteer Army, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (organization banned in Russia) and the Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists.

Representatives of these organizations are going to participate in early elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (Ukrainian Parliament) in a single coalition as the Svoboda party. The decision to create a coalition was made at the congress on June 9.

Ukraine is above all!” is the nationalist coalition’s program slogan. It is a copy of the “Germany is above all!” slogan of Nazi Germany.

Oleg Tyagnibok is heading the electoral list. The top five names include: the leader of the National Corps Andrei Biletsky; the former and current leaders of the Right Sector ‌ (organization banned in Russia) Dmitry Yarosh and Andrei Tarasenko, as well as the deputy chairman of the Svoboda party, former vice-speaker of the Ukrainian Rada Ruslan Koshulinsky.

Almost half of the candidates are members of the Svoboda party. The alliance also plans to nominate candidates with its program in single-member districts.

Tyagnibok addressed the audience with a speech.

Only the nationalists can be a shield that prevents revenge of the pro-Moscow scum. We must provide a sense of dignity and pride to Ukrainians. We must take what is rightfully ours. We have a special mission: to not shame the glory of our heroes and to protect the future of our children. The nationalists’ coalition in the parliament should be powerful. It will not allow anyone to destroy the Ukrainian state, and it will demonstrate quality work for the benefit of the Ukrainian nation, to ensure a decent life for every Ukrainian. We can offer real changes not just in words, but in our legislative proposals.

Svoboda and other Ukrainian nationalist organizations, both those included and those not included in the alliance, played a leading role in the Maidan protests that led to a coup in Ukraine in 2014. Representatives of these organizations participated in mass hostilities in the Donbass region, where they have repeatedly been seen committing crimes against civilians.

According to the survey results, none of these organizations can now overcome the five per cent of voting barrier for passing into the Verkhovna Rada.

Editorial comment

The Ukrainian nationalists have shown that they can be a significant political factor after they overthrew the legitimate authorities in 2014.

At the same time, their recent election results are by no means brilliant. After the Maidan, nationalist parties and organizations have scattered around and lost their electoral support, often due to scandals, and this was not the only reason.

The popularity of ultra-nationalists among ordinary Ukrainians is low despite the systematic pro-Bandera [Ukrainian Nazi collaborator – translator’s note] propaganda. This once again proves that the Maidan was a “minority revolution”, that it did not express the will of the majority, but rather the will of small yet passionate groups.

It is worth noting that this is typical not only of the Ukrainian Maidan; but rather, it is a sign of all contemporary “velvet revolutions”, which use the “the street law” in place of or contrary to the electoral law.

I despise these Nazis, the killed my Grandfather, knocked on the door, he opened it, shot to the head: gone forever.
That said, in the Photoshop Century anything is possible, and some of those flags don’t look quite right to the trained Photoshop eye….?

You can probably check similar pictures to verify.

Method:
1. Go to a famous encyclopedia site.
2. Bring up their Azov (Azov Battalion) page
3. Go to the left “Languages” pane and click on Русский
4. Copy the Russian language heading for Azov Battalion,= Азов (полк) into your Clipboard.
5. Do an images search with that and see what comes up.
6. If you are really interested, try an image search in French, Régiment Azov, or in German, where it’s written Asow.

The Svoboda (“Freedom”) Party used to be the Ukrainian National Socialist Party.
Its CIA handlers recommended the name change.
It vowed to “cleanse” the Ukraine of “Russian scum” and “Jewish scum” though it is bankrolled by Jew oligarchs like Kolomoisky.

One of the Ukie Nazi paramilitary groups uses the crossed hand grenades symbol of the wartime SS Dirlewanger Brigade.
This was named after its leader, a Nazi who was probably mentally deranged.
Though he was a Nazi, he was imprisoned in Nazi Germany for several years before the war for rape and other crimes.
He was allowed to recruit an SS unit of like minded individuals for service in Russia.
This unit followed a routine of herding civilians into a barn and burning them to death inside.
Their particular party piece, however, was keeping a pack of starving wild dogs.
Victims were fed to the dogs and eaten alive.

Nice people, these Ukies.
Doing a good job for their CIA handlers.

“”Jabhat al-Nusra announced it was severing all ties with its parent organization, al-Qaeda, and changing its name to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham….”

These utterly evil bastards switch names as often as the the marketeers of Unilever or P&G, but it’s the same evil *unts doing their dirty deeds.

Ukraine isn’t struggling-along in a brittle relationship between “high” and “low”. It’s been a poster-boy for “failed state” for five years,while being parted-out by opportunists.It doesn’t work.It isn’t working.

It must have been a failed state well before or why would 10 million people = 20 % of their then population emigrate between 1994 and 2014?

Okay,certainly,as you may have been implying,they didn’t have much!Some well-established heavy industry in eastern Ukraine,and a really good deal on fuel to heat their houses,even though they were years behind on their payment to the R.F.,and a border that had long been an open border.

Haha they didn’t have enough support on their own so they all hadn’t to gang up for votes! The NATO next to the nazi and Ukrainian racist flag was a nice touch. Shared

In general, a coalition is normal to ensure a stronger presence in the UA Rada. For example, the mayor of Odessa, Trukhanov, formed the Trust the Deeds Party with the mayor of Kharkiv, Kernes. The oligarches Akhmetov & Kolomoisky also joined forces.
As to the 10-20,000 nazi hooligans running wild in Ukraine, a concentration camp would be the correct destination for them, where Work would set them Free..

This bunch have the tacit acceptance if not approval of the arch US hawks, since they have a visceral hatred for Putin.

As a result Western typists are told not to type nasty things about this bunch.

After all, Dubyas Grandad thought investing in Nazi Germany was good for business.

Other leading US political dynasties think likewise about Ukraine.

None. They are firmly on their side because the reason for all this is that they think Ukraine should be in NATO so their investor buddies can sell more weapons.

Some Ukrainians obviously think there’s gonna be freebies for people who are Russian haters, but NATO’s interests evaporated when Ukraine could no longer deliver Crimea as a NATO post.

There exists an uneasy marriage of convenience between the ultra-nationalist militias and the Oligarch/Political classes. As I recently pointed out in a book review* In political terms De Ploeg argues that Ukraine is not a classical neo-Nazi state, but one where the neo-Nazis and the oligarchs rule, if this is the right word, in a forced symbiotic relationship. The oligarchs control the government and state institutions whereas the ultranationalist stormtroopers control the streets …

It remains an open question as to whether or not Ukraine’s delicate balance of parliamentary, semi-parliamentary and anti-parliamentary forces can continue to co-exist, and for how long. For one thing the armed ultra-nationalist militias – The Tornado Battalion, the Aidar Battalion, The Azov Battalion, Right Sector and Svoboda militias, all volunteers – are more reliable and politically motivated than the regular Ukrainian army and police force and have their own political objectives. This is one problem which confronts the Kiev oligarchy. However, in addition to keeping the ultra-nationalists on a tight lead, Poroshenko and his government also have to deal with the internal intra-oligarch struggles involving other political actors jockeying for position and preferment and seeking their own share of the spoils. Consequently, this unlikely coalition is very brittle and might easily fracture in any future political/military crisis, which means that the ‘government’ has to tread very carefully when trying to assert its authority.”

The problem for the ultranationalists are (1) Their Parliamentary weakness, (2) Their non-existent knowledge of economics, (3) The demographic crisis which has seen a virtual bleeding of Ukrainians out of the Ukraine, from a population count of 52 million in 1985 to a level of 42 million, according to the 2017 figures. source: countryeconomics.com. (This is a general trend of depopulation in Eastern Europe but is particularly acute in Ukraine and the Baltics.) (4) Per capita national income is half of Angola’s. (5) Kiev runs increasingly unpayable deficits on the national budget and current acccount, (not surprising if you main export is sunflower seeds.) (6) Its sovereign bonds are given a non-investible grade – i.e., Junk status – by the three US ratings agencies S&P, Moody’s and Fitch. Ukraine has nowhere to go other than to sink further. As for the militias and their little fuhrers, well then can march up and down, have torchlight processions and intimidate their opponents, but hey, that’s not going to put food on the table.

And besides all this looter-in-chief,Kolomoisky, is the real power behind the throne. He doesn’t care for the Ukraine has three passports – including an Israeli one of course – and spends a good deal of his time abroad. As for Zelensky, he’s just a gofer. Does what he is told like a good little boy. So the great tragicomedy stumbles on. What started with all the hopes and expectations of the Orange revolution under the Tymoshenko (gas princess) and Yuschenko regime, then the glorious Maidan have come to nothing and Ukraine and its people are now contemplating the bitter fruits of their naive and misguided hopes. I hate to say this, and I speak relatively, but in retrospect it looks like the Yanukovic regime wasn’t that bad.

Ukie Nazis in Ukraine or cannibal head choppers and throat slitters in Syria, it’s all the same to Uncle Sam. Any old cannon fodder will do.

Ukraine should have had a bright future at independence in 1991. It was the most highly developed and prosperous part of the Soviet Union.

It had full employment and a highly trained and well educated work force. Coal, iron, steel, metallurgy, chemicals, vehicles, locomotives and rolling stock, engineering, tractors and agricultural machinery. Aircraft, missiles, spacecraft, armaments. 100 large machine building firms, producing machine tools and things like heavy presses for stamping out car bodies. All the helicopter engines for the Soviet Union and its many export customers were made there. Fairly large population of 52 million.

By 2010, this was all gone, the result of non stop looting by Jew oligarchs. There was no Ukrainian Putin to bring them under some kind of control. The economy contracted by 60%. Electricity generation fell by a third. Production of tractors fell by 95%. All other industries declined in a similar fashion. The 100 large machine building concerns collapsed. Just three survived. There was mass unemployment, poverty and destitution, crime, alcohol, prostitution, drugs, corruption, lawlessness. Society collapsed. The health service collapsed. Life expectancy plummeted. Millions died early of illnesses like TB and diptheria. Average income per head was $2,800, less than Egypt ($3,000) and slightly ahead of Syria ($2,400.) All three countries were shortly to be subjected to Neocon destabilisation campaigns.

The population had fallen from 52 to 38 million, with a further 7.5 million scratching a living working abroad, either picking cabbages in Poland, or as the ubiquitous “Natasha” prostitutes, the only thing Ukraine produces that the EU wants.

Of course, this was before the CIA orchestrated Maidan Coup with Nazi militias trained at NATO bases in Poland and Lithuania. Since then, the economy has fallen off a cliff, bankrupt and its currency worthless. It has lost the energy producing area in the East, and relatively prosperous Crimea. With the loss of 1.5 million refugees to Russia, the Crimea and Donbas, the population actually controlled by the Kiev Coup Regime has fallen to about 30 million.

It is now just a failed state, a CIA/ NATO/ Oligarchs playground. The only future it has lies in foreign owned agribusiness (Monsanto), foreign owned extractive industries (Joe Biden’s son), and if they are lucky, some foreign owned sweatshop manufacturing. A source of raw materials and captive market for the EU, a source of cheap labour and cheap prostitutes. Sad, really. Because of the Coup Regime’s rabid Neocon directed hostility to Russia, it has lost most of its key Russian market. It will shortly lose what little is left of its gas transit business. It imports Russian gas from countries like Poland at a large mark up to maintain the pretence that it does not rely on Russian energy.

This failed state may soon be part of the EU, along with Albania and Macedonia. If that isn’t a convincing argument for leaving the EU, I don’t know what is.

When the gas pipeline network infrastructure in Banderastan collapses for lack of maintenance over the past 25+ years, the country will not even be able to maintain the pretence of not relying on Russian energy unless it starts buying American LNG and how it will be able to do that must reside only in its wildest and most deranged fantasies at this point in time.

That’s not what worries me so much. There are 13 or 14 old style Soviet nuclear reactors which are about 10 or 20 years past their sell by date/ service life, haven’t been properly maintained for years, and should have been decommissioned years ago. They were designed to run on Russian nuclear fuel, but Westinghouse have been shoehorning their own unsuitable fuel into them. Expect a Chernobyl Mark 2 or a Fukushima Mark 2 in the very near future.

What worries me more than that are the old Soviet nuclear reactors, about 13 of them, that should have been decommissioned years ago. They are all way past their sell by date/ service life, and haven’t been properly maintained for years. They were made to run on Soviet nuclear fuel, but they keep shoehorning in unsuitable fuel from Westinghouse. Expect a very big bang some tine in the near future.

The looters who become oligarchs may indeed include Jewish people but I would try to separate that notion from the primary argument. History taught us that when this type of rhetoric becomes acceptable then its not the oligarchs, jewish or not, that suffer, its our friends and neighbors that get hurt.

I’d guess that a big part of the problem with Ukraine is that its not a country so much as a federation of states with very different peoples in them. The reason’s probably rooted in history — Orthodox Slavs versus Catholic non-Slavs — and while it should be yesterday’s news the recent experience in states such as Poland and Hungary would suggest that the 1930s are still very much alive and well in that part of Europe.

I am not sure if they will get into the EU because people now speak of EU/NATO membership. For NATO Ukraine is useless unless they have Crimea – and that they will not get. As long as there is the civil war in Donbas, EU/NATO membership is not within the rules but rules can be bent, of course.

In 2006 a freighter brought US military to Feodosia, but they were not allowed to play their war games. Hilarious story.
