The failed state of Ukraine, run by a combination of CIA spooks, neo-liberal technocrats, and neo-nazi thugs appointed by US neocon (Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs) Victoria Nuland, has never exhibited one hint of proper diplomacy and statesmanship since the Maidan coup in 2014.
Volodymyr Parasyuk, a Ukrainian nationalist lawmaker, who is suspected of committing war crimes against his own people in the Donbass, praised the murder of Russian Ambassador Karlov…calling the jihadists Turkish killer a ‘hero’.
In a post on his Facebook page, Parasyuk shows the now infamous image of Mevlut Mert Altintas standing over Karlov’s body, along with the phrase…
“When a man is ready, at the cost of his own life, to take extreme measures for the sake of an idea, for the sake of truth, then it can be said with confidence that he is a hero.”
Can we thus draw the assumption that Parasyuk supports ISIS and Al Qaeda?
Why not, it would mean that Ukraine’s lawmakers are in fact, well aligned with European Union values and ideals.
Sputnik News Agency reports on another Ukrainian national embarrassment…
Getting into a heated argument with some of his readers, Parasyuk kept insisting that Karlov’s killer was “a hero to his people.” Users countered, pointing out that Turkish social media is now filled with anything but flattering words toward Altintas.
Users also slammed Parasyuk for his stupidity, pointing out that every other European government has condemned the terrorist act. Some called the Ukrainian lawmaker’s remarks a manifestation of extremism in its own right.
Amazingly, even users who sympathize with Parasyuk and his radical ideas told him that “killing an unarmed ambassador is not an act of heroism, but a terrorist attack.” Others also pointed to the killer’s alleged sympathies for the jihadists in Syria, and asked whether Parasyuk thought that maybe “the guys who crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 were also heroes” in the lawmaker’s eyes.
Others simply pointed out that as a politician serving in the country’s parliament, Parasyuk should engage in trying to solve Ukraine’s many social, political, and economic problems, instead of trying to whip up scandal.
Some Ukrainian media sources, which had at first eagerly jumped to report on Parasyuk’s remarks, soon began deleting their articles, apparently understanding that the matter was embarrassing to the country’s image, and deciding it was unworthy of coverage.
