Julian Assange asks why the US said nothing when Obama supported Ukrainian neo-Nazis

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has sent a series of highly apposite Tweets regarding the recent right wing versus left wing protests in Charlottesville that have resulting in one death and multiple injuries.

In the above Tweet, Assange has juxtaposed a neo-Nazi torch march in Kiev with the far-right torch march in  Charlottesville. Apart from the torches, it is clear that the Ukrainian fascists were far more equipped for violence as they were wearing bullet-proof combat gear and facial coverings.

Apart from this, the Ukrainian neo-Nazis got scant political coverage in the western media in spite of the fact that their actions included overthrowing a legitimate government as recognised by the United Nations and the installation of a fascist regime which continues to wage a war of aggression on the peoples of Donbass. This war  has included the use of chemical weapons on civilians.

Beyond this, Ukraine is also a bigger nuclear disaster waiting to happen than North Korea. While Pyongyang has stated that its weapons are defensive, the nuclear power stations in Ukraine continue to violate multiple internationally recognised safety standards. The possibility of another Ukrainian nuclear disaster in the place where Chernobyl occurred in 1986 looms heavily over the region.

However, these facts get even less coverage in western mainstream media than the initial fascist coup in Kiev did in 2014.

By contrast, the American far-right is far from power and does not have anything close to a political programme capable of putting together let alone overthrowing a government.

Assange continued by criticising the power of identity politics as a dangerously divisive force which naturally leads to civil strife.

He then used his famously black humour to contrast how the United States actively funds and arms sectarian groups abroad in order to foment civil strife with the reality that in the US such things are entirely funded domestically.

While in Syria there were never any homegrown ‘moderate rebels’ but instead, gangs of foreign funded Wahhabi extremist terrorists, in the US there literally are moderate rebels whom many find distasteful but who are on the whole non-violent and largely irrelevant.

If the US really cared about ending sectarian strife it should stop arming it abroad and encouraging it at home.

It’s much worse. British North America (BNA) is an incubator for Ukranazis and especially Russophobia (see, the Canadian Institute for Ukrainian Studies). The family of the infamous Bandera immigrated to “Canada.” Chrystal Freeman, the FM in Oddawa, is of UkraNazi background. In the 1980s, the Country’s managers called various conferences to get the jewish and nazi interest groups working together against the Russians. At this time, they recommended nazism only being known as a German phenomenon, and that Soviet data concerning Ukranazi crimes be omitted because they were all just “poor farmers” that Stalin wanted to eradicate. Pretty interesting how… Read more »

The country , which invaded Yugoslavia in 1999, bombed it for 11 stiff weeks , day and night, violating Serbia’s international borders and sovereignty and wrenched Kosovo-Metohia from it, to create a haven for Albanian drug dealers, pimps and islamists, without a referendum of population or any other formal kind of process, sanctioned heavily Russia in 2014 for allegedly “invading and annexing Crimea,… Read more »

Nitpicking, but Crimea was annexed by the Russian empire in 1783. The Autonomous Republic of Crimea seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia, even with a little help from her friends. IMHO the justification of Crimean action was based on the fact that the new government in Kiev was illegal and inherently hostile to the great Crimean majority. Thus, the Crimean secession was given more impulse by the historical connection with Russia, but the catalyst was the Maidan coup. This is why this event did not take place in the past, even after similar referenda in the 90s, but on the… Read more »

I chose the date 1774, as it was the end of the Turkish-Russian war, and Russia won. The Crimea peninsula came to Russia. You might be right about the official date. Fact is , the Ottomans didn’t hold on the North shore of the Black Sea. There is a historical anecdote, that Catherine II was not so warm in taking Crimea, which was a wasted mountain at the time, to which the Field Marshal Potemkin interceded: “Why not , Your Majesty? Russia can build its Paradise on Earth there”. The Russian Czars had their summer residence in Crimea. Livadia Palace… Read more »

As to the “Ukrainian Zionist Junta,” you don’t seem to understand any of the “useful idiot/paid troll” terms that you are bandying about.

There was no democratic presidential elections! Instead of legitimately and democratically campaigning for the would-be 2015 presidential elections, a massive riot aka Maidan have been staged.
I don’t need to tell you about swastikas, icons of Bandera-who is legally a fascist, torches, fires, and much, much hate talk about Russia and Donbass even then, in 2013 and early 2014. You know it all.
The President was cornered because same USA forces that kill protestants in the USA kept telling him he couldn’t defend the order in his own country. So he didn’t — and was ousted.

The only truly sad thing about it is that it’s truth. I was disgusted and revolted at seeing outrageous Nazi symbolism in Kiev back in 2014. It manifested license to violence. And the New Ukrainian Order did use violence to intimidate people to vote for a new president—by burning alive 50 innocent anti-Maidan demonstrants, with phophoric weapons and Molotov coctails in Odessa on May 2, 2014… THIS is sad.

A very good question, and it seems there is some controversy about that.

So was he deliberately provoking this melee- -with the help of the media and the local corrupt politicians? Possibly. Also, this man allowed fringe elements like the KKK and some weird pro-Nazi nuts, small in number to be sure, to show up with the majority of the other protesters who are rightly concerned… Read more »
