For The Record

Update on the Ukrainian Crisis

Lis­ten (MP3): This pro­gram was recorded in one, 60-minute seg­ment.

The lat­est pro­gram recorded is FTR #905–Globalization, Transna­tional Cor­po­ra­tions and Japan­ese Fascism

Valen­tyn Naly­vaichenko, recently-resigned head of Ukrain­ian intel­li­gence under Yuschenko and Poroshenko

Before we turn to con­tin­u­ing analy­sis of “The Earth Island Boo­gie” in suc­ceed­ing pro­grams, we set the stage by updat­ing events in Ukraine. To the sur­prise of no one, the OUN/B heirs in power in Ukraine have not indicted any­one in the burn­ing alive of 42 pro-Russian demon­stra­tors in Odessa in May of 2014. The Ukrain­ian “counter-terrorist” forces are inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the OUN/B heirs in gov­ern­ment and the per­pe­tra­tors of the act. Fail­ure of gov­er­nance is tak­ing its toll on the Ukrain­ian pop­u­lace, expressed by sup­port for OUN/B-style fas­cists such as Svo­boda in West­ern Ukraine, sup­port for the polit­i­cal forces grouped around the cor­rupt for­mer pres­i­dent Vic­tor Yanukovych in the east­ern and south­ern parts of the coun­try and the elec­tion to the Odessa city coun­cil of a politi­cian who assumed the name of a Star Wars vil­lain. In response to grow­ing crit­i­cism of the Ukrain­ian sit­u­a­tion, the EU is imple­ment­ing an infor­ma­tion war­fare pro­gram directed not only at EU mem­bers in East­ern Europe but in Rus­sia as well. A pri­mary the­o­ret­i­cal influ­ence on the infor­ma­tion war­fare the EU is con­duct­ing appears to be for­mer Wehrma­cht gen­eral Wolf Ste­fan Trau­gott Graf von Baud­issin, who served on Rommel’s staff dur­ing World War II. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the effect of anti-Russian sen­ti­ment expressed by the Maidan coup­sters on the pop­u­la­tion of the East­ern part of the coun­try; the effect of the war waged by the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment on pub­lic sen­ti­ment in the east; the over­whelm­ing prob­a­bil­ity that hard intel­li­gence on the shoot­down of Malaysian Air­lines Flight 17 does not sup­port the “Putin/Separatists did it” line; dis­cus­sion of the long-standing sen­ti­ment on the part of Crimeans for re-unification with Rus­sia; von Baudissin’s role in the re-institution of Nazi forces in the post­war Ger­man military.
