COMMENT: So, accord­ing to The Min­istry of Truth, Swo­bo­da is now “mod­er­ate.” We guess that is what hap­pens when the leader of the group (pic­tured at right) meets with the Sec­re­tary of State (John Ker­ry.)

Notice that Swo­bo­da’s mod­er­a­tion is indi­cat­ed by their unwill­ing­ness to “open­ly” advo­cate throw­ing fire­bombs at the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment secu­ri­ty forces. 

Hey, that sure sounds mod­er­ate to us!

(We have done four pro­grams to date about the Ukrain­ian cri­sis: FTR #‘s 777778779780.)

In 2010, Oleh Tyan­hy­bok, the leader of the group was hon­ored by vet­er­ans of the 14th Waf­fen SS divi­sion (Gali­cia).

Their con­cept of “skull and bones” dif­fers rather dra­mat­i­cal­ly from Ker­ry’s.

“Front and Cen­ter in Ukraine Race, a Leader of the Far Right” by Andrew E. Kramer; The New York Times; 3/11/2014.

EXCERPT: . . . . Mr. Yarosh has hint­ed at a role for his group in bal­anc­ing the influ­ence of a long­time play­er in Ukrain­ian pol­i­tics, Yulia V. Tymoshenko, the for­mer prime min­is­ter who emerged from prison after the fall of the old gov­ern­ment with mem­bers of her polit­i­cal par­ty, Father­land, already hold­ing the posi­tions of act­ing pres­i­dent and prime min­is­ter.

Before the protests, the nation­al­ist par­ty Svo­boda had occu­pied the nation­al­ist niche to the right of Ms. Tymoshenko. But Svo­boda and Father­land are now allied. . . . [They were all along. Just check out FTR #779–D.E.)

The Svo­boda par­ty, mean­while, has mod­er­ated, and did not open­ly [!–D.E.] endorse the tac­tic of throw­ing fire­bombs when street fight­ing began in Jan­u­ary. Svo­boda was found­ed in 1991 under the name the Social­ist-Nation­al­ist Par­ty of Ukraine, with a sym­bol that resem­bled a swasti­ka. Its leader, Oleg Tyag­ni­bok, met Sec­re­tary of State John Ker­ry on Tues­day . . . .


“Is the Rebel­lion in the Ukraine Real­ly Aimed at Cre­at­ing a Nation­al Social­ist State?” by George Elia­son; OpE­d­News; 2/26/2014.

EXCERPT:. . . .  In Cana­da, in May 2010 , [Senior Ukrain­ian oppo­si­tion leader Oleh] Tyah­ny­bok received the gold­en  cross ” ‘for his ser­vice to Ukraine’ from the Broth­er­hood of the Vet­er­ans of the First Ukrain­ian Divi­sion of the Ukrain­ian Nation­al Army, vet­er­ans of the Waf­fen SS Gal­izien....”
