The Ukraine Information Vacuum

...for instance Biden's current collusion with Ukraine's Neo-Nazis

 The following is from Western Media: How to Keep Silent and Write About Ukrainian Nazism (7/25/2022)

-"Nobody knows anything about Ukraine. yet everyone has ferocious opinions about it. The other night I shocked a distinguished Oxford academic by informing her that the lovely, angelic, saintly, perfect Ukrainians had blocked off the water supply to Crimea in 2014. She was rightly shocked by this nasty, uncivilized act of spite, but it was far more shocking that this highly educated person did not know this important fact." - Peter Hitchens

- "The orthodox American political-media narrative blames “Putin’s Russia” alone for the new US-Russian Cold War. Maintaining this (at most) partial truth involves various mainstream media malpractices, among them lack of historical context; reporting based on unverified “facts” and selective sources; editorial bias; and the excluding, even slurring, of proponents of alternative explanatory narratives as “Kremlin apologists” and carriers of “Russian propaganda.” 

- "Western media generally took a pro-Ukrainian stance during the eight-year Donbass conflict. However, there were journalists who spoke openly about the rampant neo-Nazism, the genocide against civilians, and the Ukrainian military’s slaughtering of the elderly, women, and children."

- “No less important, however, is the highly selective nature of the mainstream narrative of the new Cold War, what it chooses to feature and what it virtually omits. Among the omissions, few realities are more important than the role played by neo-fascist forces in US-backed, Kiev-governed Ukraine since 2014. Not even many Americans who follow international news know the following, for example:
  • That the snipers who killed scores of protestors and policemen on Kiev’s Maidan Square in February 2014, thereby triggering a “democratic revolution” that overthrew the elected president, Viktor Yanukovych, and brought to power a virulent anti-Russian, pro-American regime—it was neither democratic nor a revolution, but a violent coup unfolding in the streets with high-level support—were sent not by Yanukovych, as is still widely reported, but instead almost certainly by the neofascist organization Right Sector and its co-conspirators.
  • That the pogrom-like burning to death of ethnic Russians and others in Odessa shortly later in 2014 reawakened memories of Nazi extermination squads in Ukraine during World War II has been all but deleted from the American mainstream narrative even though it remains a painful and revelatory experience for many Ukrainians. 
  • This did not begin under President Trump but under President George W. Bush, when then Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko’s “Orange Revolution” began rehabilitating Ukraine’s wartime killers of Jews, and it grew under President Obama, who, along with Vice President Joseph Biden, were deeply complicit in the Maidan coup and what followed. Then too the American mainstream media scarcely noticed. Still worse, when a founder of a neo-Nazi party and now repackaged speaker of the Ukrainian parliament visited Washington in 2017, he was widely feted by leading American politicians, including Senator John McCain and Representative Paul Ryan. Imagine the message this sent back to Ukraine—and elsewhere.
  • That storm trooper-like assaults on gays, Jews, elderly ethnic Russians, and other ‘impure’ citizens are widespread throughout Kiev-ruled Ukraine, along with torchlight marches reminiscent of those that eventually inflamed Germany in the late 1920s and 1930s. And that the police and official legal authorities do virtually nothing to prevent these neo-fascist acts or to prosecute them. On the contrary, Kiev has officially encouraged them by systematically rehabilitating and even memorializing Ukrainian collaborators with Nazi German extermination pogroms and their leaders during World War II, renaming streets in their honor, building monuments to them, rewriting history to glorify them, and more."
- "Even before the announcement of the de-Nazification of Ukraine, some global media and independent journalists had written about what had really been going on all these years. However, these publications did not provoke any logical reaction from the world community concerning the revival of the misanthropic ideology and genocide against the Russian-speaking population. It turned out to be just the opposite. The western community conveniently ignored neo-Nazis as long as possible. Now, it is more and more difficult to do so every day."

The article includes this: "Americans cannot be faulted for not knowing these facts. They are very rarely reported and still less debated in the mainstream media, whether in newspapers or on television." 

,,,to which I reply: Just as Americans need to remove their children from public schools they also need to remove the MSM from their living rooms and use their own minds to separate truth from lies and the Ukraine NATO agenda.

  1. Wow, another Russian regular bundle of lies, as per freakin' usual, for the consumption of the people who, until recently, didn't even know where Ukraine was on the map)

    "Blocked the supply of water to Crimea" - and the fact that Russians forcibly drove away everybody from the Dnipro canal end in Crimea beforehand, as well as refusing to pay for the water goes unmentioned. But, I suppose, in the spirit of Russian Nazism, we Ukrainian untermenschen ought to work like slaves for the Russian ubermenschen and supply them with water free of charge.

    "Rehabilitating killers of Jews" - and if those Jews were collaborationists with Polish, Soviet and Austrian oppressors? Welp, I suppose we Ukrainian untermenschen should've forgotten about struggling for our independence.

    "Snipers killed scores of protesters and police" - oh, police weren't killed. And the snipers were Russian GRU - the protesters have even torn a patch off one of them. "Almost certainly by neo-fascist organization Right Sector" - in the spirit of Willi Munzenberg and Stalin's "Popular Front", a comrade/pro-Russian great power chauvinist must always, always equate nationalism of the "lesser nations" and Christian conservatism with Fascism and Nazism.

    "Pogrom-like burning" - ha-ha, no. It was a mutual clash between Ukrainian nationalists and Russian provocators - and the latter simply came off worse, so it was decided to spin it as a massacre of Russians.

    "Orange Revolution begun rehabilitating wartime killers of Jews" - and those nationalist "killers of Jews" were also killers of Polish death squads, Soviets and, lastly, Nazis. "Founder of Neo-Nazi party" - of course, the equally mythical founder and the party are not named)

    "Stormtrooper assaults on faggots, Jews, elderly ethnic Russians" - more lies. Faggots here, as far as I know, are keeping their heads down (I suppose Putin's clique does have more in common with faggots than with Christianity, so this defence of faggots is unsurprising) as they should. "Jews, elderly ethnic Russians" - Russian-speaking Jews are so "assaulted" over here that they've somehow wound up in the second most-Jewish government in the world after Israel. "Renaming streets in their honor" - yes, streets are renamed in honor of Stepan Bandera, who lost his two brothers to the Nazis and was murdered by Soviets and other such heroes. They are also renamed in honor of the likes of Ivan Mazepa, who was anathemized by the pet church of the Tsar for daring to fight for the independence of Ukraine.

    Bottomline... On one hand, it's amusing to see people who don't know one iota of Ukraine's history and culture write slander against Ukraine. The slander is so easily-refuted that it's embarassing. Only some useful idiots - or fellow travelers - in the West will swallow this hook, line and sinker. The proportion of these useful idiots goes like this - Baltic countries, West Slavic countries, Ukraine, Moldova, Sweden, Kazakhstan, Finland, Turkey and Norway will have the absolute least concentration of them (due to historical experiences with Russian aggression). The further a country is from Russian historical influence, the more pro-Russian idiots will be found there (exceptions are Belarus and Georgia, due to the great amount of Russian population that Russia forcibly moved there in prior centuries). Oh, and one other thing - this animosity from Russians towards anybody else is caused by Russian militarism - or Rashism. This is the modern-day equivalent of the Germanic Prussian militarism - out of which Nazism, Fuhrerprinzip and other such charming stuff was born (Allies targeted Prussian militarism first in their occupation of Germany - that's why the generation of Germans that apologized hailed from the 60's and later).
