Welcome to post-coup Ukraine or Nulandistan.
It follows the precedents and traditions of destabilization and violence honored by U.S. officials like,
Arseniy Petrovych Yatsenyuk, who has illegally taken the post of Ukrainian prime minister with the support of the U.S. and European Union, was never favored by the many of the authentic protesters in Euro-Maidan or even the grassroots members of his allies.
When, without any election or public discussion, he was arbitrarily given the office of prime minister, many in the Euro-Maidan protest booed him and some even cried "bullet to his head."
His party boss, the infamously corrupt Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko, was booed too after she arrived.
In reality, Yatsenyuk and the other Ukrainian politicians like the ultra-nationalist Svoboda's Oleh Tyahnybok, appropriated the hopes and dreams of the Ukrainians that were protesting against not only the Ukrainian government of Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych, but the entire corrupt Ukrainian political establishment.
Hiding behind the
protesters, Yatsenyuk and Tymoshenko's Batkivshchyna Party used the militias
of their ultra-nationalist political allies to launch a violent coup in
Yatsenyuk's coup-installed regime has cracked down on media freedoms, sent the Ukrainian military and security forces to attack anti-coup protesters under the pretext of NATO-backed anti-terrorism operations, and started purges and witch hunts all over Ukraine.
This started with the head of the National Television Company of
Ukraine, Aleksandr Panteleymonov, being threatened and beaten into resigning
by Svoboda deputies Igor Miroshnynchenko and Andrey Ilyenko.
This is the U.S.-supported freedom of speech that has been brought to Ukraine, Nuland-style.
For example, senior deputy Petro Symonenko has been caught on film being pushed and prevented from speaking, just for daring to condemn the use of the Ukrainian military and security forces against civilian protesters by Yatsenyuk's regime.
Before being silenced, Symonenko made the key point of noting how the ultra-nationalists were serving foreign interests and not the national interests of Ukraine and actually dividing the Eastern European country.
The senior Rada deputy's party offices have also been burned, like those of other political parties in Ukraine opposing the coup.
Again, welcome to Nulandistan: brought to you by,
...and a whole host of other U.S. tentacles.
In the process the Yatsenyuk regime is denying them
the rights that Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and the Euro-Maidan movement claimed
legitimized their coup and violent takeover of power in Kiev.
After the match the regime supporters held a rally sanctioned by the regime-installed local authorities where they started yelling "knife the Russians" using derogatory language.
appeared to be anti-coup activists, which either support federalization or
separation, wearing St. George's Ribbons and red bands on their sleeves
confronted the regime supporters, which led to a violent confrontation in
After the fake anti-coup activists, which are being called the "third party" in retrospect, disappeared the pro-coup side attacked the unrelated and peaceful anti-coup activists that were near Odessa's House of Trade Unions.
When the anti-coup activists ran inside the building for safety, it was set ablaze with Molotov cocktails.
watched as the pro-coup side attacked and killed the peaceful activists in
House of Trade Unions while ambulances and fire trucks were prevented from
saving many of the people inside that burned.
A man who called presented himself as sotnik Mykola, a leader of Euro-Maidan, is even caught on tape firing into the building at people trying to escape the fire. A pregnant women was taped screaming for help before she was strangled to death by a regime supporter wearing a white and blue jacket (see the first figure).
One of the ultra-nationalist supporters of the Yatsenyuk regime that was in Odessa during the attacks proudly wrote about the murder of the anti-coup activists in her Facebook page.
Russia's Perviy Kanal (Channel One or First Channel) network would use the publicly available YouTube footage about the clashes in Odessa to point out what happened in Odessa.
Their important observations about the lead-up to the clashes would be reported by RT International in English for international audiences.
Tatyana Ivananko, a survivor of the attack from the anti-coup activists camp in Odessa, would tell RT International's Ukrainian journalist Alexey Yaroshevsky in a in-depth interview that the,
She also confirmed that there were no foreign nationals among their ranks and that the agent provocateurs of the "third party" were not involved with her group whatsoever.
Raw footage from Mariupol shows how unarmed
Ukrainian civilians were killed in the name of phony anti-terrorism
operations by order of the Yatsenyuk regime in its efforts to gain control
in the parts of Ukraine that do not recognize the illegal February coup that
ousted the government of Ukraine.
Albeit skirmishes did take place between the regime and armed resistance fighters in such places as Slavyansk, the U.S.-backed Yatsenyuk regime killed Ukrainian civilians in this region when they tried to exercise their democratic rights to vote peaceful in the referendum.
For example, instead of allowing the inhabitants of Krasnoarmeysk, in Donetsk Oblast, to vote on their future, the U.S.-backed junta sent its militias to prevent the people there from freely voting. This was done under the pretext of anti-terrorism operations.
The U.S.-backed anti-terrorism operations are really a smokescreen aimed at hiding the regime's motives to disrupt the referendum.
The militia has incorporated sections of the same ultra-nationalist groups that helped violently oust the legal Ukrainian government in Kiev in February 2014.
In other words, many of the same armed men that stormed Ukrainian government offices in a coup are now acting in an official capacity. Moreover, albeit the National Guard is officially categorized as the reserve force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, it is under the jurisdiction and control of the Interior Ministry.
The reason for this is, because the Ukrainian military is not loyal to the coup-installed regime in Kiev.
The irregular National Guard, which has ultra-nationalist gunmen that
are loyal to the regime integrated into its ranks, on the other hand is
dependable for the coup leaders and more than willing to do the regime's
dirty work, like killing unarmed civilians, that many members of the
Ukrainian military would refuse to do.
The discourse about "pro-Russians" and, even, Russian-speakers is misleading. The real nature of the opposition in the southern and eastern portions of Ukraine is opposition to an illegal government installed through a foreign-back coup.
Calls for local autonomy, federalization, separation,
or reunification with Russia are all byproducts of this.
He candidly discouraged any dialogue and called for bloodshed and ethnic cleansing, more properly termed as genocide, in places like Crimea, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, and Donetsk. Anyone that opposes the coup-installed regime in Kiev, he clarified should be murdered without mercy.
This includes those wearing the orange and black St.George's Ribbon, which is a ribbon that is displayed to commemorator the end of the Second World War (or the Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine and Russia) and the defeat of Nazi Germany, since it has become the distinguishing mark of the anti-coup protesters in Ukraine who view the U.S.-supported February 2014 coup as the reemergence of the threat of fascism.
Gennady Balashov's comments echo those of the infamous anti-Russophone and anti-Russian Iryna Dmytrivna Farion, a deputy in the Rada for Svoboda.
Farion bluntly and without any hesitation tells the media that the coup-installed Yatsenyuk regime in Kiev should take the opportunity to kill all the Ukrainians protesting against the new regime in Kiev.
The U.S.-supported Ukrainian ultra-nationalist politician even says that the Ukrainian protesters opposed to the U.S.-supported regime in Kiev are "aliens" that need to be killed as a means of cleansing the country.
She calls for nothing
short of a genocidal operation and even calls her compatriots "creatures"
that need to be eliminated.
The terms Velikorus (Great Russian), Malorus (Little
Russian) and Belorus (White Russian) were geographic concepts originally
before they were socially constructed into the loosely-knit ethnic
identities and social structures that are Russkiye, Ukrainian, and
Their perceived ethnographic differences, which are social constructs, have
been utilized as geopolitical tools by the U.S. and its allies to dupe
nationalist elements inside Ukraine, as well as the Russian Federation, into
fighting and opposing their own kin and to destroy their own societies from
the inside, pursuing a fictitious purification of their societies and people;
these nationalist quests are what enfeeble national unity and cohesion.
Additionally, the Russophone people or Russian-speakers in Ukraine are just as Ukrainian as the Ukrainaphone people or Ukrainian-speakers.
Their situation is the same as the members of Irish population who speak English and not Irish; no one in Ireland questions their Irishness, because they speak English and not Irish.
In the same context, concerning Russophone
Ukrainians there is no question about the Ukrainianness or its authenticity.
Regardless, the two East Slavic languages are almost identical and the majority of the Ukrainian population are bilingual in Ukrainian and Russian.
tribalism informing the views of Iryna Farion and other nationalists in
Ukraine is nothing more than a distraction from the gross injustices and
unequal distribution of power and wealth in Ukrainian society; it distracts
the population from the real issues about improving their lives and divides
the country's citizens, preventing them from confronting their oligarch
Unarmed civilians trying to vote or coup figures like the foolish Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a self-appointed leader of the "EuroMaidan" movement, that have sent armed groups to threaten and kill them?
Moreover, the actions of the Yatsenyuk regime validate the premise in Moscow
that Russian troops needed to be sent into the Crimean Peninsula to allow
for the voting not to be disrupted. If this did not happen the referendum on
March 16, 2014 may have never taken place, with fighting taking its place in
These people are the Yatsenyuk regime's terrorists. Unarmed Ukrainians civilians that that have tried to peacefully prevent the Ukrainian military and National Guard from entering their towns and cities are portrayed as outlaws and villains.
The crime of these unarmed civilians to the have tried to prevent the regime from either illegally establishing what is essentially martial law in their towns and homes or from using Ukrainian military and security forces to prevent the anti-coup segment of the Ukrainian population from voting freely.
These people are the ones that
the U.S. government and the European Union are condemning while trying to
scapegoat Russia for the regime's murder of innocent civilians.
Also, among the real terrorist and fascists are the foreign-backers of the Yatsenyuk regime in,
...which have brought division, ruin, and destruction across the globe, from,
If Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former president of Iran, is mistranslated and misrepresented by the mainstream media in North America and Western Europe about saying he wants to "wipe Israel off the map" during a conference, the U.S. government and European Union have field days condemning Iran.
In Nulandistan, however, the coup-installed head of Khersonshchyna, Governor Yuri Odarchenko, can praise the invasion of Ukraine by Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany like he did on May 9, 2014 to the anger of Ukrainian war veterans, while,
...all keep silent.
Do not expect any in-depth reporting by CNN, the BBC, France 24, Fox News, or their ilk about the murder of unarmed civilians in Ukraine by the Yatsenyuk regime either.
These media networks are conducting an information war against any countries and governments opposed to the U.S. and its allies.
Instead of reporting what is actually taking place, the mainstream media in North America and the European Union will continue distorting the truth by blaming Russia and those Ukrainians that it deceivingly, as a means of refusing to acknowledge their legitimate opposition and resistance to the illegal regime in Kiev, calls "pro-Russian."
