In addition to detailing the maneuvering surrounding the abundant natural gas reserves in Ukraine, the program highlights efforts by the EU and U.S. fossil fuel interests to manipulate the Ukrainian crisis to their advantage. Accessing excellent work by Robert Parry, the broadcast underscores the Orwellian coverage of the crisis by U.S. and German media. Deliberately avoiding discussion of the Nazi character of the Ukrainian provisional government, Western media have obfuscated the deliberate burning alive of pro-Russian protesters in the Eastern part of the country. Apparently assisted by elements of American and German intelligence, the neo-Nazi OUN/B successors in Ukraine are affiliated with The Order, best known for having murdered radio talk show host Alan Berg.
