The Right Sector, aka neo-nazi power in Ukraine, aka US trained and funded terror group was mobilised yesterday in a downtown Kiev march to call on on the weakened and desperate Poroshenko putsch government to call off the Minsk agreement (as if they ever followed it to begin with)…and restart the war with ghost Russian troops and a very real Novorussian army that has already kicked the neo-nazi right sector asses twice…but who’s counting.
America should know better than Ukraine’s master race that in baseball, the golden rule is ‘three strikes and you’re out’.
Western propaganda outlet BBC reported on the “far-right supporters” marching in Kiev in what was quoted by their correspondant as a “show of strength in the heart of Ukrainian officialdom.”
Is that what western media outlets call nazi army marches nowadays?
BBC also once again regurgitated Jen Psaki talk of “clear evidence that Russia is helping the rebels in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions with heavy weapons and soldiers”… for which the journalists at the BBC once again must have forgotten to provide links, photos, video of such “clear evidence”.
About 1,000 Ukrainian pro-government fighters and far-right supporters have marched through the centre of the capital, Kiev.
Many burned tyres and wore balaclavas; some carried white supremacist flags.
They called on the government to end the Minsk ceasefire accord and declare war on pro-Russian rebels in the east.
The demonstrators say the Russian government is bringing troops and equipment into Ukraine, a claim that Russia has always denied.
Many in the rally were from volunteer battalions and were dressed in their battle fatigues.
They said they had returned from fighting Russian forces and demanded an end to all diplomatic relations with Russia.
The ultra-nationalist Right Sector group called the march. Protesters also demanded the nationalisation of Russian-owned businesses.
More than 6,400 people have been killed in fighting in eastern Ukraine that began in April 2014 when rebels seized large parts of the two eastern regions. This followed Russia’s annexation of the Crimea peninsula.
The BBC’s David Stern in Kiev says Friday’s rally was a show of strength in the heart of Ukrainian officialdom.
But above all, our correspondent says, the demonstrators were calling for change. Both in the way that the conflict is being fought in the east and in the way that the country is being run.
Central to their demands is an end to the Minsk ceasefire agreement signed in February which they say is a charade because of Russia’s activities in Ukraine.
The Ukrainian government, Western leaders and Nato all say there is clear evidence that Russia is helping the rebels in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions with heavy weapons and soldiers. Independent experts echo that accusation.
But Moscow denies it, insisting that any Russians serving with the rebels are volunteers.
