It’s out of the fire and into the frying pan for so-called Ukrainian ‘Joan of Arc’ Nadia Savchenko, who has just now been arrested by Ukraine, for allegedly planning a terrorist attack inside the parliament of which she is a member.
Ukrainian military pilot Nadia Savchenko was previously sentenced to 23 years in jail in Russia, for complicity in the murder of two Russian journalists, and later released as part of a prisoner exchange. Since then, she was hailed as a great idol of the Maidan – a symbol of the new anti-Russian, pro-Ukrainian future, that Ukrainians are supposedly all supposed to fight for. Western media and those in Ukraine alike lionized her, and she was awarded by President Poroshenko the highest honor Ukraine can bestow, the title: Hero of Ukraine.
This is important to note: Savchenko has literally been declared a Hero of Ukraine, thereby intended to represent everything Ukraine stands for.
A few short years after her release from Russian Prison, the same Ukrainian President which decorated her, and hailed her as Ukraine’s Hero, their Joan of Arc, on her return from Russian Prison, now President Poroshenko supports her arrest. Savchenko has simply went from Russian prison to Ukrainian jail.
The authorities have been desperately wanting to arrest and silence Savchenko, after a great scandal, but until now, her immunity as a member of parliament protected her from arrest, even as they accused her of attempting to blow up that same parliament. Finally, she has been strippped of that immunity and detained, according to TASS news:
The decision to strip Savchenko of immunity was carried by a 291 majority vote. Her detention was supported by 277 legislators, with 11 opposing it; 268 voted for her arrest, and six, against.
Lutsenko said before the voting that “on the list of top priority investigative measures to be taken today an order to take Savchenko for psychiatric examination is number eight.”
“This will answer all questions,” he said. In her final statement Savchenko said that Ukraine should reform its political system and give voters a chance to revoke legislators and hold referendums.
“Ukraine does have a way out without terrorist attacks and other problems that may ruin it. There is a simple and legal way – a reform of the political system,” she said.
At least a hundred picketers supporting Savchenko, including her sister Vera and mother, gathered near the Ukrainian parliament. They were chanting “Nadya is a hero” and “Freedom for Nadya.” Some were seen crying.
Savchenko was not handcuffed, but was lead out of the Rada into the crowd of her supporters.
So the big question remains, why has Nadia Savchenko been arrested? Well, if you follow RussiaFeed, you may recall that we covered her recent claims which shocked Ukraine and the world over. If you haven’t read the article, it’s highly recommended, as it explains in detail what has really been happening behind the scenes.
In short, Nadia Savchenko has made some shocking claims, she said the following, regarding the events of the 2014 Maidan Coup, which was hailed in the west as a revolution of dignity:
I saw the current speaker of parliment bring snipers to the hotel, those people are in parliment now. The prosecuter general needed to become prosecuter so that his crimes against the Ukrainian people wouldn’t be investigated.
She directly accused members of the current regime in power in Ukraine, including the Prosecutor General, of hiring the mysterious snipers which fired on police and protesters alike from the roofs of Kiev buildings, namely the Hotel Ukraina overlooking the Maidan.
These snipers were acknowledged in western Media, but naturally, they were blamed on Russia or President Yanokovich. The official claim was that the Snipers were targetting Ukrainians fighting for freedom. It has been stated by Russia and independent journalists for some time, however, that the snipers were, in fact, targetting both protesters and police, thereby acting as provocateurs, pushing Ukraine over the brink of war. Recently, damning evidence has been produced confirming what was already known and stated in Russian media about these snipers.
That, however, at this point, is not even the issue here, this is not to argue that Russia has claimed the snipers were put there by the current Ukrainian government, but rather to show that Savchenko is arguing that. Now the Russian claims are confirmed by one of the most violently anti-Russian people in Ukraine.
What makes Savchenko’s claims so shocking is not the claims themselves – we already knew about them, it is the fact that they are coming out of the mouth of one of the most violently Russophobic people in the country. Slowly but surely the truth in Ukraine is coming out, and Savchenko’s words proved to be the most unexpected clue, affirming the Russian account of the Ukraine crisis.
It can not be overstressed the poetic justice that “Hero of Ukraine” Nadia Savchenko is somehow directly affirming the Russian story, and thereby disproving the lies the west spread about Ukraine, both inside the country and abroad. No one can accuse her of being a Russian agent – she has Russian blood on her hands, which makes her the most unbiased source in this situation.
Why the Change of Heart?
To be clear, Savchenko is not exactly morally pure – let’s not forget that she does indeed have blood on her hands. She is a kindred spirit to many of the Ukrainian neo-Nazis running around the country, but this is, in fact, the reason why she is opposing the current Ukrainian regime.
She has not had a change of heart per-say, she is a Ukrainian nationalist through and through, but it seems she has grown a brain, if not a conscious, and realized that she may be a so-called “Hero of Ukraine” willing to fight and die for the cause, but the Ukrainian authorities certainly are not.
She realized while she was in jail for her crimes, the powers that be in Kiev were not worshiping at the altar of Bandera, sacrificing a goat or two for the glory of Ukraine, but instead robbing the country blind, while she and her comrades served as useful idiots dying on Ukrainian battlefields.
She realized they were not fighting Russians, who could easily capture Kiev if they really wanted to, but rather, Ukrainian citizens, and that she and her comrades were bamboozled by the west, and the Oligarchs in power, to divide Ukraine with war, setting it up for western socio-economic conquest.
She realized that the revolution of dignity she fought for in Kiev, was actually a lie, the current Ukrainian authorities are legitimized criminals, who rose to power on bloodshed, and they, in fact, sent the snipers which fired on Maidan protesters, and security forces alike. She realized after being promised so much, the revolution of dignity was a complete and utter farce and sham.
Ukraine has Gone Insane
Ukraine has gone completely insane – not just because of this, but because of everything that’s happened after 2014. Lets recap, shall we? Before 2014, when Ukraine was allegedly controlled by Russia, the country was peaceful, there was no war, and at worst, some people in one side of the country didn’t get along with some others at the opposite end. Everyone basically went about their normal affairs. After the so-called Revolution of Dignity:
- The Ukrainian government collapsed, and a democratically elected President was ousted in a violent coup.
- A fratricidal war began in Donbass, which killed around 10,000 people including children.
- The war crimes were committed by Ukrainian government forces – however, a large amount of the army deserted – Ukraine can’t even keep their army in line – so a majority of the worst atrocities were committed by Neo-Nazi battalions.
- Fascism effectively returned to Europe for the first time since 1945 – in the heart of a country which fought fascism. Former Nazi Ukrainian elements from western Ukraine were rehabilitated like Bandera.
- The rise of fascism effectively revitalized the certain radical bands of Uniates, which since the 16th century Union of Brest, killed Orthodox Christians.
- Crimeans voted to join Russia, motivated especially by fear of Ukrainian fascism.
- Ukrainian fascism has scared away even Russophobes in Poland.
- Ukraine lost wonderful opportunities with Russia, and was forced into a Master-Slave trade relationship with the EU.
- EU leaders STILL say Ukraine is decades away from joining EU
- In recent days
- Former Georgian President Saakashvili (stripped of citizenship in his own country and wanted for corruption) was appointed Governor of Odessa in Ukraine. He then attempted to overthrow the corrupt Ukrainian government – and was deported after a back and forth fight with the current President.
- Now Savchenko – a former ‘Hero of Ukraine’, hailed as the Ukrainian Joan of Arc and jailed in Russia for murder, has been arrested on accusations of terrorism against Ukraine.
The Kiev regime now maintains that this is all a plot of Russian secret services, yet it’s not Russia which has descended into a dystopian quagmire.
Now, Ukraine is arresting and jailing not only one of their soldiers, but one who earned the highest medal and title in the land: Hero of Ukraine. Ukraine is jailing their own Heroes, corrupt exiled former presidents of foreign countries are appointed Ukrainian governors, only for them to call the government corrupt and state coups, and a civil war is raging killing thousands. Ukraine still maintains that it is all Russia’s fault, even as they jail their own Heroes who kill Russians. It seems the Hetman (title for Cossack ruler) must soon come to terms with the fact that he is wearing no clothes.
I’d tell him to buy some – but the oligarchs have already stolen all the clothes.
