FTR #959 Update on the New Cold War and the Nazification of Ukraine

In a long series of pro­grams and posts over the last four years, we have chron­i­cled the re-insti­tu­tion of the OUN/B World War II-era fas­cists as the foun­da­tion­al ele­ment of the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment. Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance in that regard is the Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of the Ukrain­ian intel­li­gence ser­vice, the SBU.

Among the recent devel­op­ments in the oper­a­tions of the OUN/B‑related ele­ments in Ukraine is the post­ing of a call for the erad­i­ca­tion of Ukraine’s Jews.

The call for a new Holo­caust in Ukraine was made by Vasi­ly Vovk – a senior offi­cer in the SBU, for­mer head of the SBU’s inves­tiga­tive unit and head of the SBU’s inves­ti­ga­tion into the MH17 probe. (Vovk’s pro­nounce­ment casts fur­ther doubt over the MH17 inves­ti­ga­tion.)

The SBU is also impli­cat­ed in the bomb­ing assas­si­na­tion of jour­nal­ist Pavel Sheremet.

Next, we cov­er the lat­est attempt by Volodomyr Via­tro­vych and Ukraine’s Insti­tute of Nation­al Mem­o­ry to puri­fy Ukraine of any mem­o­ries that might por­tray “nation­al­ist” groups like the UPA (the mil­i­tary wing of the OUN/B) as a bunch of Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors: Ukraine is inves­ti­gat­ing a 94-year-old Jew­ish WWII hero over the death of a UPA propagandist/Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tor back in 1952 while he was work­ing for the NKVD at the rec­om­men­da­tion of Via­tro­vych as part of a pack­age of new decom­mu­ni­sa­tion laws.

Via­tro­vych heads the insti­tute for Nation­al Mem­o­ry, the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment agency that is imple­ment­ing the total per­ver­sion of Ukraine’s World War II his­to­ry. The excess­es of his depart­ment are being cre­at­ed under the aegis of “decom­mu­ni­sa­tion.”

“Decom­mu­ni­sa­tion” isn’t just going to cov­er inves­ti­ga­tions of Sovi­ety-era inci­dents. As the fol­low­ing inter­view grim­ly describes, every­one is a poten­tial tar­get in Ukraine. And “decom­mu­ni­sa­tion”, or sim­ply being asso­ci­at­ed with any­thing ‘Russ­ian’ at all, is enough to bring vio­lence or worse.

We then high­light an arti­cle about the anti-Roma pogrom that was just imple­ment­ed by a small vil­lage and appar­ent­ly approved of by the rest of the gov­ern­ment. The arti­cle was writ­ten by a jour­nal­ist who trav­eled to that region and queried the locals about their views of the Roma. Almost every­one he talked to hate the Roma with a pas­sion. It also turns out most of them had lit­tle to no actu­al con­tact with their fel­low Roma cit­i­zens, at least not know­ing­ly since many Roma hide their eth­nic­i­ty due to ram­pant job dis­crim­i­na­tion.

Most locals sim­ply par­rot­ed the anti-Roma lessons they were taught as chil­dren. Anti-Roma Lessons that are even found in Ukrain­ian text­books. It comes as no sur­prise that the Azov Bat­tal­ion is join­ing in on cre­at­ing a cli­mate of fear and intim­i­da­tion.

Next, we note that Ukraine is set to be the world’s third largest food exporter some time in the next decade due to its incred­i­bly pro­duc­tive arable land. This is undoubt­ed­ly a major fac­tor in the push to incor­po­rate Ukraine into the West­ern sphere of influ­ence.

FTR #865 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and “Unholy Alliance”

Rat­line high­lights the flight of a mys­te­ri­ous Nazi using the alias Georg Anton Poch. Iden­ti­fied as Hitler in a book pub­lished in Indone­sia, Poch was cer­tain­ly some­one of great impor­tance, though not nec­es­sar­i­ly Hitler. His odyssey sheds light on the Vat­i­can escape net­works known col­lec­tive­ly as “The Rat­line.” Who­ev­er he was, “Poch,” like so many Nazis, found suc­cor in the Vat­i­can. A Croa­t­ian priest–Father Draganovic–was one the prime movers of the Rat­line The sto­ry of the Rat­line and the Vat­i­can’s oper­a­tional sanc­tion­ing of the butch­ers of the Vat­i­can-backed Croa­t­ian Ustachi casts a dif­fer­ent his­tor­i­cal light on recent events. Pope Fran­cis’s vis­it to the Unit­ed States has dom­i­nat­ed the news cycle, with some cov­er­age going to the con­tro­ver­sy over his can­on­iza­tion of Father Juniper Ser­ra, regard­ed as a bru­tal oppres­sor by Native Amer­i­can archivists. What has received no sub­stan­tive cov­er­age is the pend­ing beat­i­fi­ca­tion of Arch­bish­op Stepinac, a mem­ber of the Ustachi par­lia­ment dur­ing World War II. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the stew­ard­ship of the main Ustachi con­cen­tra­tion camp Jasen­o­vac by Father Fil­ipovic, a Fran­cis­can priest; Fr. Fil­ipovic’s mur­der­ing of Ser­bian chil­dren with his bare hands; Oper­a­tion Bern­hard, a key Nazi coun­ter­feit­ing oper­a­tion; the many his­tor­i­cal out­growths of Bern­hard, includ­ing the oper­a­tions of the Rat­line; the use of Stepinac’s church to stash Nazi war loot; Ger­ald Pos­ner’s “point” role in lead­ing the Bor­mann-inspired dis­cred­i­ta­tion of Ladis­las Fara­go.
