Ukraine Conflict: Neo-Nazis at War against Ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine

10

The so called Maidan protesters in Ukraine appeared to have been motivated by anger over political corruption as well as desire of the country’s nationalists to join the European Union (EU).

So long as media framing and propaganda exist in politics, and our governments desire to have their interests over others, majority of the public will be manipulated to believe in lies. The real story would always be hidden in the dark.

Since the conflict began in Ukraine, we have been made to believe that the Maidan protesters are ordinary citizens who want closer ties with the EU than Russia. Some say they want bright opportunities to be able to take their destinies into their own hands. In Western media sphere especially in the US, we have been bombarded with how the Maidan protesters are right and hardly do we hear about the ethnic Russians in the east.

Ukrainian nationalists fought alongside Nazis Germany during World War II. They killed many ethnic Russians in the east as far as Stalingrad in Russian territories. And these same Neo-Nazis made up a significant number and surged to the front during the seizure of government buildings and the climatic clashes with police during the protest.

When Viktor Yanukovych was ousted, the neo-Nazi militias effectively controlled the government but European and US diplomats rushed to help the shaken parliament put together the semblance of a respectable government. But the question is how come at least four ministries, including national security, were awarded to the right-wing extremists in recognition of their crucial role in ousting Yanukovych?

These same extremists who fought alongside Germany and killed many Russians in the eastern border, are today angels in our eyes? We all know that the former national security chief, Andriy Parubiy who founded the Social-National Party of Ukraine in 1991, blending radical Ukrainian nationalism with neo-Nazi symbols was commandant of the Maidan’s “self-defense forces.”Ukraine 1

But throughout the crisis, the US State Department and mainstream media have downplayed the role of neo-Nazis in the Kiev regime. But is has now emerged that right-wing storm troopers fly neo-Nazi banners as they attack in the east.

The New York Times reported that the Ukrainian government’s offensive against ethnic Russian rebels in the east has unleashed far-right paramilitary militias that have even raised a neo-Nazi banner over the conquered town of Marinka. Other independent articles have substantiated this report.

An article that appeared in the Times by Andrew E. Kramer copiously mentioned the emerging neo-Nazi paramilitary role in the conflict in the following 3 paragraphs.

“The fighting for Donetsk has taken on a lethal pattern: The regular army bombards separatist positions from afar, followed by chaotic, violent assaults by some of the half-dozen or so paramilitary groups surrounding Donetsk who are willing to plunge into urban combat.

“Officials in Kiev say the militias and the army coordinate their actions, but the militias, which count about 7,000 fighters, are angry and, at times, uncontrollable. One known as Azov, which took over the village of Marinka, flies a neo-Nazi symbol resembling a Swastika as its flag.

“In pressing their advance, the fighters took their orders from a local army commander, rather than from Kiev. In the video of the attack, no restraint was evident. Gesturing toward a suspected pro-Russian position, one soldier screamed, ‘The bastards are right there!’ Then he opened fire.”

Although some of these articles are objective, they bury the truth in the end. And that is the media Framing we are talking about. There is enough evidence to tell us that the neo-Nazi problem still exist in Ukraine no matter how our media might frame the situation.

  1. I feel like this is an extremely complex way of manipulating gp. Yes the new York Times may have broke the story. The thing is that the powers that be would not allow the story to hit the press if not for some alterior motive. They own all major media outlets. I think this is to slowly get the American people used to seeing the neo-nazis on our side because of all of them currently holding positions of power in our offices. Many of you will disagree but think outside of the box for a minute. Anything is possible.

  2. I live in Europe only a few 100 miles from Ukraine. I have been in Ukraine long before the Maidan revolution. And I can say that the vast majority of people in western Ukraine are driven by hopes for better stability and better life standard, not by Nazi ideology. You also gotta go back in history to understand. This area has been drenched with blood since hundreds of years. The vast cemetery of Lviv is full of soldiers from many many nations from many wars. Ukraine has suffered a lot under Russian rule in the last century. But still these extreme right wing Nazi militias and their supporters represent only a very small part of Ukrainian people. They have managed to get (way too) much power by their involvement in the revolution and in the fight against Russians. BTW, European media has reported about them from the beginning, which might be a reason for most Europeans not wanting to supply Ukraine with arms. US media may be more biased, but again, main driver for all that happened in Ukraine was not (!) Nationalism or Nazism.

    • Lviv (Lvov) used to be a Polish land. During WWII Ukrainian nationalists, who collobarated with Nazis killed 50,000 Poles (called Wolyn massacre). The same people (UPA, UNA-UNSO) is in power in Ukraine. Yes, it is called Extreme Nationalism = Nazism

  3. Does the KKK run our military? Or are they a minority who, at times, *may* fight for the same things?

    A small group of neo-nazis in any country is no surprise, even Russia cleary has their own right-wing fasicts, but if it is as wide spread as peanut butter, than for sure, we have not had the whole truth, which is also no surpirse.

    To elaborate a little, if the neo-nazis are but one faction amongst the Ukrainians who have taken root in specific towns and disobey orders from the top, then they do not represent Ukrain and we are making a mountain out of an ant hill. On the other side, if they do represent the majority, and blind eyes are given to their actions and racism in order to uphold a two faced government, then this is very alarming, they could have been manipulating media, or the media may also be playing a role in the misinformation.

  4. This article sounds like the propaganda coming out of russia. Everyone I met in eastern Ukraine was looking forward to reconciliation. Perhaps they were naive, not knowing Putin was pulling the puppet strings of war all along… of course the more homes and family members that are lost to Russian agression, the more difficult reconciliation will be… more resentment… and more labels like Nazi get used.

  5. Are you kidding? It’s ridiculous. There are no Nazi power in Ukraine. Russia shows aggression towards Ukraine and they defend their right to peaceful existence. This all the information about Ukrainian Nazis was taken from the Russian propoganda channel “Russia Today”.

  6. Are you serious? Now you just sound like your reaching…. Ukraine controlled by neo Nazis??? Lmao… These whack stories why everyone dismisses Anonymous as has-beens, flash in the pan of time.
