UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Yesterday Ukraine held its 7th presidential election since independence in 1991.

To mark this hopefully new start we have assembled a timeline of facts on the history of the nation since the Maidan riots of winter 2013-14.

UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Maidan smashed the lynchpin of representative democracy that held disparate E & W Ukraine together. That lynchpin was held in place due to the faith the people of Crimea & E Ukraine had in the democratic process. With Maidan this faith was shattered.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Let us step back to the time when the split between E & W Ukraine began. Almost everything which has transpired since the start of the crisis with Maidan, including an estimated 13,000 deaths, began during WWII.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Only when you understand the history of 1000s of W Ukrainians joining the Nazis in special Ukrainian battalions can you begin to fully understand the reaction of the people Crimea & E Ukraine to the rioting seen on Maidan Sq. in the winter of 2013-14.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

It should be kept in mind alongside the fact of ultra-nationalist Ukrainians fighting w the Nazis to kill Russians that an enormous number of Ukrainians, an estimated 4.5 million brave souls, joined the Red Army to fight, & ultimately defeat the Nazis.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Having said the above concerning Ukrainians fighting alongside their Russian comrades in such large numbers it is the legacy of those fighting with the Nazis that has led directly to the most evil consequences, both affecting & stemming from, Maidan.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The legacy of Nazi collaboration by Ukrainians from W Ukraine has passed down from grandfather to father to son. Not w shame as you may expect, but w pride. This pride is shared by some in government who name streets after prominent Nazi collaborators.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The ultra-nationalists are a minority in Ukraine. But they constitute 10s of 1000s & wield an enormous amount of power compared to their proportion of the entire population. Most Ukrainians are, without doubt, normal everyday people like anywhere else.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The reasons the ultra-nationalists in Ukraine (some prefer simply 'Nazis') are so powerful compared to their numbers is the same as the reason the ‘National Socialist’ minority was in Germany before the war; their willingness to use threat & violence.
UKRAINE’S BLOODY TIMELINE

An entire Ukrainian political party has a history deeply embedded in the mythology that Hitler was good for Ukraine & that the Nazis assisted in the gaining of independence for Ukrainians. This allegiance to Hitler & the Nazis runs deep as we will see.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The party now known as ‘Svoboda’ (‘Freedom’) had a different name until relatively recently. It was previously called the 'Social-National Party' but as with Hitler’s 'National Socialist Party' the inferred link with socialism is totally non-existent.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

After the Maidan riots ousted the legally-elected president of Ukraine members of the Svoboda Party (prev. Social-National Party) gained ministerial positions. The leader of the party Oleh Tyahnybok was one Victoria Nuland's favored three to take over.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Kiev in winter 2013-14 saw at least one gov building burned down, 17 police killed others injured (Molotov cocktails & myriad improvised weapons were used, plus hunting rifles, shotguns & hand guns). Used by ‘peaceful protesters’ according to Obama.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Victorian Nuland was instrumental along w/ Geoff Pyatt & John McCain in organizing the overthrow of the president & gov of Ukraine via Maidan rioters, NGO ‘National Endowment for Democracy’ & those selected by them to be active in the replacement gov.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Those using ultra-violence in Kiev were a minority of a greater minority. The majority of the original protesters were peaceful enough. However, by the time Victoria Nuland began handing out ‘cookies’ on Maidan with Pyatt the extremists had taken over.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

You can listen to the leaked call between Victoria Nuland & Geoffrey Pyatt at the link below. For those with ears to hear back then it was a deeply shocking look into the interference the USA believes is its right worldwide.

UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

You can read the full transcript of the conversation between Victoria Nuland & Geoffrey Pyatt here w/ MUCH more revealing detail than the infamous phrase from Nuland that grabbed headlines & most attention: i.e. “Fuck the EU”.

UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Who are the ‘extremists’?

People full of hatred for the east. Their name for those in the E Ukraine is ‘Moskals’. They chant “Russians on Knives!” By this they surely mean the ‘Moskals’ too. Those in Crimea know well to whom such hatred is directed.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

When the president & gov the people of Crimea & E Ukraine had helped vote into power were removed by extremists during the Maidan riots they knew what was coming in tandem with their democratic rights being taken away. Next would likely be their lives.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

To understand the division existing between Crimea & eastern Ukraine & all western regions you need only look at two particular images.

The 1st shows the voting pattern in Ukraine (this image depicts the year 2004).

UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

To understand the division existing between Crimea, E Ukraine & western regions you need only look at two particular images.

The 2nd shows the distribution of Russian as spoken in Ukraine. Observe Crimea & Donetsk / Lugansk regions in particular.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The people of Crimea & east Ukraine are by majority extremely loyal to their long legacy of Russian cultural connections & take a particular pride in the bravery of their fellow 4.5 million Ukrainians who joined the Red Army & helped defeat the Nazis.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The ultra-nationalists of west Ukraine glory in a fierce hatred of all things Russian & in tandem glorify the memory of those who fought alongside the Nazis. They proudly use symbols the Nazis would have recognized as near to or identical to their own.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

If you were not already well aware of it, you will hopefully now see that the western narrative on Ukraine, as with that on Venezuela is/was completely one-sided & caters not at all for the rights & feelings of those on Crimea or in Donetsk or Lugansk.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

It was said at this time by Ukrainian ultra-nationalists that if Crimea voted to rejoin Russia there would be no humans left alive on the peninsula. Considering the factors above do you think that those on Crimea considered this to be an idle threat?
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Apart from threats, buses returning to Crimea from a pro-autonomy rally in Donetsk were stopped by ultra-nationalists. Windows were broken & occupants forced to eat glass & shout “Glory to Ukraine!” Several were murdered, the rest ran for their lives.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Below is an excellent compilation by an Englishman who was in contact w/ his girlfriend on Crimea during these pivotal moments. It is well worth watching to see just how much you weren’t told by western MSM about these events.

UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

On the Crimean peninsula the people are intensely proud of their Russian history. Proud too of the Russian fleet based there. By vast majority they considered themselves Russian, even when forced to bow down to the Ukrainian language in previous times.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

In Donetsk & Lugansk in E Ukraine fear of the ultra-nationalists who sneered at them & threatened them as ‘Moskals’ was intense. They simply could not sit & wait for the inevitable consequence of the coup against their democratic rights on Maidan.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Their call was for autonomy, security for their traditions which honored links to Russia via culture, trade & a deep sense of gratitude & pride in Russia having defeated the Nazis, freeing Ukraine from their evil grip.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Instead of their appeals being understood & acted upon the newly elected Poroshenko sent increasing numbers of troops & weaponry along w/ ultra-nationalist militias (the regular army was in poor condition & Poroshenko used them as additional forces).
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Many in the regular Ukrainian army refused to attack the villages, towns & cities of the Donetsk & Lugansk regions at the beginning, some were shot. But ultra-nationalists had no such qualms. Mortars were set up outside them & shells fired at random.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Uncaring who'd die as a result, the Ukrainian militants (as the Georgian army had done in South Osettia) simply fired toward any buildings straight ahead. High rise apartment blocks, hospitals & schools were hit most regularly due to being the highest.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

If mortar shells fired at random toward Donetsk & Lugansk conurbations failed to hit a taller building they would fall randomly in nearby streets or town squares. None of the hundreds of gruesome images of dead civilians have been shown by western MSM.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

We had the unenviable task of archiving each image of dead civilians murdered by Ukrainian militias (Volunteer Battalions.) The saddest being children. Not a single image has been shown on western mass media & naturally no mention of those responsible.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Donetsk & Lugansk regions continue under siege more than 4 years on. Civilian deaths still occur. Elderly men & women who can still recall the events of WWII say this is worse. These people live in fear night & day due to Poroshenko & his armed forces.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Western MSM has done a disservice to its audience on both Crimea & the regions of Donetsk & Lugansk. All mass media channels have turned a blind eye to the evils perpetrated by the successors to those Ukrainians who joined Nazi battalions during WWII.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

By ignoring the deaths of civilians in Donetsk & Lugansk whose only crime was wishing to feel secure in the survival of their pro-Russian heritage, western MSM acts as conspirator to Ukrainians who glorify the role of Hitler & his Nazis in Ukraine.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

As long as western MSM keeps telling only one biased side of this story the nightmare for the people of Donetsk & Lugansk & economic hardship of sanctions for the people of Crimea will go on. Western MSM is as guilty as western states in ALL of this.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The greatest source of hope in the face of both western states & western media both being totally intransigent & willfully blind on these issues is that new leadership eventually emerges in Ukraine & the litany of lies of the past are finally dropped.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The hope Ukrainians will elect a president who will bring into being the federalized Ukraine Vladimir Putin has suggested that is part of the Minsk Agreement appears a vain one. The focus appears only to be about the EU & NATO, not on life & death.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

We must hope at a minimum that Poroshenko is rejected in the second round of the presidential election in April where it appears he will face actor & comedian Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

bbc.com/news/world-eur…
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

It would be fitting if a comedian becomes president of Ukraine. In line w/ a reality show host being @POTUS. If you didn’t laugh you’d cry as they say. But, the ongoing timeline of Ukraine fascism is no comedy. It is the timeline of an ongoing tragedy.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

Isn’t the US elite ethos supposed to be about freedom & democracy? If this were truly so & the term ‘people power’ was really its wish wouldn't they wish it now for those persecuted & murdered for longing for both? The selectivity of the West is cruel.
UKRAINE’S FASCIST TIMELINE

The west can't be trusted. It breaks its vows, fails its stated principles & delivers death, destruction & abject misery in places where it has nothing to gain by supporting human rights, caring nothing for those rights & everything about its power.
