FTR #824 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian-Style: The Evolution and Triumph of Ukrainian Fascism

Supplementing previous work about the Ukrainian crisis–one which might spark a nuclear war–we note the decisive role of the OUN/B diaspora in the coalescence of fascism in that troubled nation. The U.S., Canada joined Ukraine as the only nations to vote against a U.N. General Assembly resolution condemning the glorification of Nazi collaborators as “freedom fighters,” probably because of the large OUN/B contingents present in those countries. (Germany and the other EU nations abstained.) Most of the broadcast accesses a very important article by George Eliason detailing the historical background of the Ukrainian diaspora, tracing the roots of Ukrainian, central and Eastern European fascism to the 19th century ultra-nationalist exceptionalism fostered by the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nurtured by the Promethean League between the World Wars, Nazi Germany during the Second World War and the Western democracies during the Cold War, that virulent, bloody ideology triumphed after the breakup of the U.S.S.R. The program concludes by noting that Poroshenko has proposed bringing in citizens of the U.S., Lithuania and Georgia to staff the Ukrainian federal police.


Stunning: U.S. Votes AGAINST U.N. Resolution Condemning Nazis and Nazi Collaborators

This past week, the U.S. was one of three countries to vote against a U.N. resolution condemning the celebration of Nazi collaborators as “freedom fighters”–something the U.S. has been promoting since the end of World War II. Germany and the EU nations abstained. Ukraine itself and Canada were the other countries that voted against the resolution. The OUN/B diaspora and its influence in the GOP and intelligence services of the U.S. is the primary consideration to be weighed in connection with this disgraceful episode.

Good Grief Charlie Brown! Henry Kissinger the Voice of Reason on Ukraine?!

When Henry Kissinger comes across as a voice of moderation, you KNOW things are getting bad. Robert Parry notes that this became reality when Kissinger was interviewed by “Der Spiegel” on the subject of Ukraine. Rejecting the Party Line that Putin spawned the crisis through his “policy of expansion,” Kissinger correctly notes that Putin acted in reaction to Western initiatives. Also of interest in this context is the presence of Michael Bociurkiw, head of the OSCE’s Special Study Mission in Ukraine. Bociurkiw is the media’s “go-to-guy” for the downing of MH 17 and other aspects of the conflict in Ukraine.

The Fires This Time

Robert Parry notes the OUN/B heritage of Swoboda and Pravy Sektor in the current Ukrainian government, correlating that Nazi heritage with the lethal firebombing of pro-Russian demonstrators in the Black Sea port city of Odessa. Apparently perpetrated by a street-fighting contingent acting in accordance with the tactical principles of both Pravy Sektor (at right) and Swoboda, the firebombing is reminiscent of the massacre of residents of the city of Huta Pienacka in Ukraine by the Galician Division (14th Waffen SS.) In addition, Parry notes an OUN/B involvement with the Reagan administration’s U.S. Information Agency and Radio Liberty, coloring broadcasts in the 1980’s in a pro-Nazi fashion.


Robert Parry on Conscription of neo-Nazis in Ukraine, Orwellian Coverage by U.S. Media

We have noted that the provisional government there is directly evolved from the OUN/B Ukrainian Nazi administration and military apparatus of World War II. We have also highlighted that the utter perversion of political and historical reality by our media is worthy of George Orwell’s 1984. In a post on the Ukrainian crisis, Robert Parry highlights the Orwellian nature of our media’s deliberate and fundamental misrepresentation of the situation there. In addition, Parry notes the inclusion of elements like Pravy Sektor and Swoboda into the national militas being sent to Eastern Ukraine as “anti-terrorist ” forces.
