Missing from the vast majority of news reports from the Ukraine is virtually any mention of the current makeup of the new government of acting president Turchynov, who has embraced the most despicable elements of Ukrainian society and provided them positions of power.
I am not voicing any support whatsoever for the tactics of Putin or for Russian aggression, but it is the current makeup of the Ukrainian power structure that is more than scary and that mirrors 1930s nazi Germany.
Right-wing nationalists groups, the most powerful of which is the Svoboda party, are major players in the acting government, and their racist and discriminatory policies are becoming embodied throughout the government. Svoboda party members now occupy numerous positions of power in Turchynov’s government, including deputy prime minister Oleksandr Sych, prosecutor general Oleh Makhnitsky, and the the position of minister of defense.
Svoboda is a neo-nazi party, that uses the swastika in their party symbol, that advocates nazi party and nazi-era policies, and that has as their hero Stephan Bandera, the WWII Ukranian nationalist movement leader who allied with hitler and who was responsible for the massacre of thousands of Poles and Jews.
widespread hoax accusing the world Jewish community of an organized effort for world domination, which was most widely distributed in the 1920s due to massive funding from world class anti-Semite and good friend of adolph hitler, Henry Ford.
I am sure that a significant motivation in the Crimean people’s voting in favor of succession is due to the their fear of the Ukrainian nationalistic movement and the growing power of parties such as Svoboda. It is beyond disgust that elected United States officials would provide any measure of legitimacy to such miserable bigots as Tyahnybok and his party.
