#Harper’s War(s): Peddling #C51 & #Terrorism via #Syria, #Iraq, #Russia, #Ukraine #cdnpoli #pnpcbc

In this rare and under-seen February 2015 clip, Harper’s Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Chris Alexander blatantly sells moar fear, moar hate and moar war by blending subversive Bill C-51 innuendo, Syria, Iraq, Russia and Ukraine into a toxic propaganda stew while pandering to an Ukrainian Canadian audience for votes and donations.

If one were to pay close attention to the “selling” points and the followup interviews, no costs are ever projected nor discussed, yet this speech does expose the dark underbelly of the Harper Regime’s Trojan Horse Bill C-51 and how it’s rather opaque definition of “terrorism” and “terrorist” may be misused by special interests groups that have acquired undue influence with the Harper Regime.

Lest we forget, Harper’s Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Chris Alexander’s rather transparent, ignorance of the ultra-far right reality is bliss moment, that was caught on tape and documented last August (2014): https://dumpharper.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/harpers-minister-alexander-ukraine-rightsector-ignorance-is-cdnpoli-bliss/


(Note the proximity of the Right Sector Flags in relation to the location and position of Alexander during the interview segment.)

If the un-calculable costs to Canadian and Ukrainian society are being ignored for the sake of ideological fear and hate based vote pandering. If ultra-nationalist rhetoric and fear mongering is not kept in check, will this acceptance of radicalization not in the end, doom us both?

The eerie feeling is emerging that pro-war advocates with interests abroad that support future “elected governments” will ultimately have a blank check to declare anti-war advocates or opposition parties as terrorist threats, at will.

At what point do we debate this “future” like reasonable adults?

#Harper’s Minister Alexander, #Ukraine, #RightSector. Ignorance is #cdnpoli Bliss

Yesterday, (23Aug2014), the “muted” 23rd Ukrainian Independence Day “celebration” was held in Toronto’s Centennial Park. Instead of the usual AP (Associated Propaganda) reports, CBC’s Shannon Martin covered the event and rather remarkably decided to take a peek behind the Maidan’s Veil for all to see.

What is most surprising about this report was what was hidden in plain sight for all to see. While it was not blatantly obvious, several key facts emerged that should be rather concerning to everyone. Oddly enough, this is the same “see no evil” strategy that was employed as the violence in Kiev erupted this past winter.

The dissected clip above is presented in 2 (two) parts and will open a Pandora’s Box that may not surprise some and be rather uncomfortable to others, especially those that have been led astray by the relentless and blatant false propaganda that we have been fed by the MSM over the past several months.

This 2 minute clip envelopes some of the more nefarious participants within the civil war that plagues Ukraine and ties them directly to the Harper Regime itself.

Once one considers the ramifications and implications of how little Harper’s Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Chris Alexander actually knows or wants to know about the world in which we inhabit, things get very troubling.

His disconcerting words and tone alone are bad enough, but his contempt with regards to the question are mind boggling to say the least considering the answers only lie a few metres away.

Make no mistake, this “man” is not fit to be an M.P. let alone a Minister with such an important portfolio. He is either psychologically damaged, completely corrupted, incompetent or ignorant to reality or exists in some alternative reality that puts vote pandering and political posturing above human lives.

How and why should we trust this “man” to make decisions that not only affect our society as a whole, but our National security as well.

To summarize, the first portion is the same clip as the second portion. The only difference is that in the second with the exception we take a closer look over the shoulder of Harper’s Minister Alexander when asked to “comment” about Right Sector Canada being in attendance. The “red” circles say the rest…

The Ukrainian community celebrated the National Day of Ukraine in Toronto Saturday. Besides the families singing and dancing, there were also men in the uniform of a soldier of the Canadian branch of the Ukrainian paramilitary group, Right Sector.

A specialist from the Ukraine, Dominique Arel says that “some of them if not a neo-Nazi far-right ideology. It’s a minority, but a very vocal minority. ”

In front of his stand, the group solicits donations. The coordinator of the Canadian branch, Petro Shkilnyk says that many Ukrainian members do not have weapons, so the money raised is used in particular in their purchase.

We must ask them. ”

The Prime Minister Kathleen Wynne for his part, was not available to speak to media.

Un groupe paramilitaire aux célébrations de la Fête nationale de l’Ukraine à Toronto

La communauté ukrainienne a célébré la Fête nationale de l’Ukraine à Toronto samedi. À côté des familles qui chantaient et dansaient, il y avait aussi des hommes en uniforme de soldat de la branche canadienne du groupe de paramilitaire ukrainien, Right Sector.

Un spécialiste de l’Ukraine, Dominique Arel, explique que « certains d’entre eux ont une idéologie d’extrême droite, sinon néonazie. C’est une minorité, mais une minorité très active ».

Devant son stand, le groupe sollicite des dons. Le coordonnateur de la branche canadienne, Petro Shkilnyk, explique que plusieurs des membres ukrainiens n’ont pas d’armes, alors l’argent amassé sert notamment, à leur en acheter.

Lorsqu’il lui a été demandé ce qu’il pense de participer un événement où un tel groupe demande de l’argent dans le but d’acheter des armes, Chris Alexander a répondu qu’il n’est pas au courant et a posé une autre question : « Est-ce que vous êtes en train de faire les mêmes entrevues auprès de compagnies canadiennes qui font affaire avec le gouvernement de la Russie ? Il faut leur poser la question ».

La première ministre Kathleen Wynne de son côté, n’était pas disponible pour parler aux médias.

@CBCNews BUSTED re #NATO vs #Ukraine vs #Russia! #GPC #NDP #LPC #CPC

We regret to inform our fellow Canadians and the rest of the World that our publicly funded broadcaster has seemingly and purposely selectively edited 2 (two) articles today with regards to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. This should be of great concern to everyone considering the implications and are calling on the RCMP to immediately conduct an investigation into this matter of National security. In addition, we would like the CBC Ombudsman, CRTC and any independent body to also launch an investigation so that those responsible may be immediately be held accountable.

This war-mongering propaganda campaign MUST stop and someone needs to be behind bars. This is not limited to those within the CBC, but also those that may be involved from the PMO as well as the Harper Regime’s Conservative Party of Canada along with any/all Opposition Members that may have knowledge of this travesty. Not only is this detrimental to the freedom of our press corp, but it is extremely damaging to our economy and the psychological well being of our citizenry.

Propaganda + Cold Wars + Free Trade = Trade Wars = Economic Wars = Currency Wars = Energy Wars = Real Hot Wars

This war against “We the People” of Canada MUST stop and we are issuing a cease and desist ultimatum. If the Opposition cannot stand by us, than they can and must stand down. We are NOT going to war for a bunch of neocon/neolib corporate globalists nor are we willing to pay the costs associated with this war you seek to start in our name. You may feel free to send your sons and daughters to fight your imaginary boogeyman and you may feel free to pay the financial costs as well, period.

Below you will find copypasta’s of what we have uncovered thus far along with a brief summary of each. Please note that these articles from the AP are really nothing more than Associated Propaganda and we have noticed and been tracking the selective editing of the AP articles published via the CBC for quite some time. These are not simply “updates”, they are narrative adjustments meant to cause confusion and conflict between viewers, readers, social media users, other independent researchers, bloggers and media the access them at different times of the day/night.

Ukraine conflict: Shelling in rebel-held city kills 4
Fighting between government and pro-Russian separatists inches ever closer to the city centre

The Associated Press Posted: Aug 07, 2014 7:17 AM ET
Last Updated: Aug 07, 2014 10:17 AM ET

Sustained shelling in the main rebel stronghold in eastern Ukraine struck residential buildings and a hospital, killing at least four people and wounding 10 others, officials said, as government forces pressed forward in their campaign to rout the separatists.

Mortar fire struck the Vishnevskiy Hospital in Donetsk on Thursday morning, killing one and wounding five others, Donetsk city council spokesman Maxim Rovensky told The Associated Press.

“There was a sudden explosion,” witness Dr. Anna Kravtsova said. “A mortar round flew through the window.”

The shelling, which destroyed an array of equipment in the dentistry unit, also hit three nearby apartment buildings.

It followed a night of shelling in another neighbourhood as the fighting between the government and pro-Russian separatists is inching ever closer to the city centre. The mayor’s office said in a statement posted on its website that three people had been killed, five wounded and several residential buildings destroyed during those attacks.

The government denies it uses artillery against residential areas, but that claim has come under substantial strain in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary.

Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine have been fighting the Kyiv government since April. Ukraine and Western countries have accused Moscow of backing the mutiny with weapons and soldiers, a claim the Russian government has repeatedly denied.

The West has also accused Russia of most likely providing the insurgents with surface-to-air missiles that may have been used to shoot down a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over rebel-held territory on July 17, killing all 298 people on board.

Clashes in Kyiv

Clashes erupted in central Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, as city authorities sought to clear away the remnants of a tent colony erected by demonstrators involved in the street uprising against pro-Russia President Viktor Yanukovych. At the time, protesters were angry about endemic corruption and wanted closer ties with the European Union.

In scenes reminiscent of that revolt, which climaxed with Yanukovych’s ouster in February, demonstrators set alight tires in their face-off against a volunteer battalion overseeing the clean-up operation.

In eastern Ukraine, government troops have made tentative progress in their strategy to retake Donetsk and other towns and cities. Armed forces have refrained from pitched urban battles, and instead favoured pushing back their opponents with artillery fire. It has led to a growing number of civilian casualties.

Vishnevskiy Hospital, one of the city’s larger medical treatment facilities, is around four kilometres from the main square. It has been used to provide treatment to civilian victims of the ongoing conflict.

“The hospital became a nightmare. This is absurd,” said 37-year old patient Dmitry Kozhur. “We came here to keep living, but now we are risking death.”

Kozhur said he now wants to join the 300,000 people that the mayor’s office says have already abandoned the once 1 million-person strong city.

As AP reporters were leaving the hospital, they heard the sound of four rounds of artillery being fired from a nearby neighbourhood under rebel control. Although it wasn’t immediately possible to confirm the sequence of events, it appeared that the shells that hit the hospital may have been a response to rebel fire.

‘New quality and quantity of arms’

Neighbours of a house struck by rockets Wednesday said their homes were also near a position used by rebel artillery forces.

As the rebels struggle to push back Kyiv’s forces, fears of Russian intervention have grown. Western leaders have accused Russia of massing troops on the border with Ukraine and supplying rebels with weapons..

“We’ve noted with concern a new quality and quantity of arms and equipment flowing across the border from Russia into Ukraine, reports of shelling across the border as well as further attacks by illegal armed groups on targets in eastern Ukraine,” said Sebastien Brabant, a spokesman for the EU’s foreign policy chief.

Russia has always denied such claims.

The Ukrainian army strategy has focused on driving a wedge between Donetsk and the other main stronghold of Luhansk. Efforts to seal off the border with Russia have been thwarted as border troops come under sustained and heavy rocket fire. Ukraine says a lot of those attacks have been carried out by Russian troops, which Moscow also fervently denies.

Article 1 EDITED

Article 1 was “updated” and the title as well as the “wording” associated with the url was changed. In addition this update actually swapped out some images and also removed the image of the crackdown at Maidan in Kiev that is included in the above version. It may also be noteworth that there were only 8 comments when we first reviewed the article above and only 11 when we relocated it, as it was removed from the main World News page and noticed the edits and updates.

Ukraine conflict: Russia must ‘step back from the brink,’ NATO chief says
Shelling in rebel-held city kills 4

The Associated Press
Posted: Aug 07, 2014 7:17 AM ET
Last Updated: Aug 07, 2014 11:26 AM ET

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Thursday called on Russia to pull its troops back from the border with Ukraine and “step back from the brink.”

Rasmussen, speaking in Kyiv after NATO said on Wednesday that Russia had amassed 20,000 troops near the border and could be planning a ground invasion of its neighbour, said Russia “should not use peace-keeping as an excuse for war-making.”

The downing of a Malaysian airliner on July 17 was a tragic consequence of Russia’s “reckless” policy of supporting the separatists and seeking to de-stabilize Ukraine, he said.

Meanwhile, sustained shelling in the main rebel stronghold in eastern Ukraine struck residential buildings and a hospital, killing at least four people and wounding 10 others, officials said, as government forces pressed forward in their campaign to rout the separatists.

Mortar fire struck the Vishnevskiy Hospital in Donetsk on Thursday morning, killing one and wounding five others, Donetsk city council spokesman Maxim Rovensky told The Associated Press.

Alternative AP article

It is also worth noting that the article below was edited as well midway through the day. This is proof positive that this “story” is being consistently spun in order to confuse the citizens. Propaganda 101 states that it is not wise to edit article in such a way, not only does this cause doubt to how independent the “free press” is, but it discredits any and all reports from said “free” press.

Neighbors of a house struck by rockets Wednesday said their homes were also near a position used by rebel artillery forces.

As the rebels struggle to push back Kiev’s forces, fears of Russian intervention have grown. Western leaders have accused Russia of massing troops on the border with Ukraine and supplying rebels with weapons..

“We’ve noted with concern a new quality and quantity of arms and equipment flowing across the border from Russia into Ukraine, reports of shelling across the border as well as further attacks by illegal armed groups on targets in eastern Ukraine,” said Sebastien Brabant, a spokesman for the EU’s foreign policy chief.

Russia has always denied such claims

The Ukrainian army strategy has focused on driving a wedge between Donetsk and the other main stronghold of Luhansk. Efforts to seal off the border with Russia have been thwarted as border troops come under sustained and heavy rocket fire. Ukraine says a lot of those attacks have been carried out by Russian troops, which Moscow also fervently denies.

In Kiev, demonstrators confronted city workers clearing a main square of long-standing barricades in a standoff that turned violent. A group of men set light to fuel-drenched tires and remonstrated with armed men from a pro-government battalion charged with protecting clean-up workers.

Dark plumes of acrid smoke from burning rubber rose above Independence Square as workers in high-visibility vests worked fast to dismantle barricades surrounding the main stage.

The square and surrounding streets were the site of huge winter protests that led to Yanukovych’s ouster. Despite the election in May of a successor — 48-year old billionaire confectionery tycoon Petro Poroshenko — many said they would continue to squat on the square to ensure the new authorities lived up to their promise to usher in an era of transparent and accountable rule.

Many Kiev residents have fumed over the months-long sit-in, however, complaining that it severely disrupts traffic and blights the city’s main thoroughfare.

City authorities have been negotiating with the protesters to clear the square since a new mayor was elected, but have met strong resistance from the several hundred demonstrators still camped out there.

While many barricades were removed Thursday, numerous tents remain in place.

NATO pledges support to conflict-wracked Ukraine

By PETER LEONARD

The Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine —

NATO’s chief defied mounting Russian belligerence Thursday with a pledge to provide assistance to Ukraine, which is battling to quash an insurgency being waged by pro-Russia rebels in the country’s east.

The show of support from Anders Fogh Rasmussen comes as government troops increasingly focus their push to claw back rebel-held territory on the stronghold of Donetsk. Ukraine appears to be ratcheting up the urgency of its onslaught against the backdrop of an alleged escalation of Russian troop presence on the border.

“In response to Russia’s aggression, NATO is working even more closely with Ukraine to reform its armed forces and defense institutions,” Rasmussen said during a visit to the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.

In a sign of sagging morale among rebel forces, separatist authorities issued a desperate plea for assistance Thursday, complaining in a statement that a “critical situation has developed with the militia’s food, uniform and ammunition supplies.”

In Donetsk, sustained shelling struck residential buildings and a hospital, killing at least four people and wounding 10 others, local officials said.

Mortar fire struck the Vishnevskiy Hospital on Thursday morning, killing one and wounding five others, Donetsk city council spokesman Maxim Rovensky told The Associated Press.

“There was a sudden explosion,” witness Dr. Anna Kravtsova said. “A mortar round flew through the window.”

The shelling, which destroyed an array of equipment in the dentistry unit, also hit three nearby apartment buildings.

It followed a night of shelling in another neighborhood as the fighting between the government and pro-Russian separatists is inching ever closer to the city center. The mayor’s office said in a statement posted on its website that three people had been killed, five wounded and several residential buildings destroyed during those attacks.

The government denies it uses artillery against residential areas, but that claim has come under substantial strain in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary.

Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine have been fighting the Kiev government since April. Ukraine and Western countries have accused Moscow of backing the mutiny with weapons and soldiers. The West accused Russia of most likely providing the insurgents with surface-to-air missiles that may have been used to shoot down a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over rebel-held territory on July 17, killing all 298 people on board.

The Russian government has repeatedly denied all those charges.

More recently, Moscow has drawn accusations it is attempting to sow more instability with an intimidating show of force by dispatching what NATO estimates is 20,000 troops to Ukraine’s eastern border. That deployment has led many to speculate Russia may pursue an incursion under the guise of restoring stability to eastern Ukraine.

“I call on Russia to step back from the brink. Step back from the border. Do not use peacekeeping as an excuse for war-making,” Rasmussen said.

While stopping short of committing to direct assistance in Ukraine’s ongoing conflict, Rasmussen said that NATO would intensify its cooperation with Ukraine on defense planning and reform.

Hours before Rasmussen’s arrival, clashes erupted in central Kiev as city authorities sought to clear away the remnants of a tent colony erected by demonstrators involved in the street uprising against pro-Russia President Viktor Yanukovych. At the time, protesters were angry about endemic corruption and wanted closer ties with the European Union.

In scenes reminiscent of that revolt, which climaxed with Yanukovych’s ouster in February, demonstrators set alight tires in their face-off against a volunteer battalion overseeing the clean-up operation.

In eastern Ukraine, government troops have made tentative progress in their strategy to retake Donetsk and other towns and cities. Armed forces have refrained from pitched urban battles, and instead favored pushing back their opponents with artillery fire. It has led to a growing number of civilians casualties.

Vishnevskiy Hospital, one of the city’s larger medical treatment facilities, is around 4 kilometers (less than 3 miles) from the main square. It has been used to provide treatment to civilian victims of the ongoing conflict.

“The hospital became a nightmare. This is absurd,” said 37-year old patient Dmitry Kozhur. “We came here to keep living, but now we are risking death.”

Kozhur said he now wants to join the 300,000 people that the mayor’s office says have already abandoned the once 1 million-person strong city.

As AP reporters were leaving the hospital, they heard the sound of four rounds of artillery being fired from a nearby neighborhood under rebel control. Although it wasn’t immediately possible to confirm the sequence of events, it appeared that the shells that hit the hospital may have been a response to rebel fire.

Neighbors of a house struck by rockets Wednesday said their homes were also near a position used by rebel artillery forces.

The Ukrainian military’s strategy has focused on driving a wedge between Donetsk and the other main stronghold of Luhansk. Efforts to seal off the border with Russia have been thwarted as border troops come under sustained and heavy rocket fire. Ukraine says a lot of those attacks have been carried out by Russian troops, which Moscow also fervently denies.

Article 2

Below are two versions of another article published and edited today by the CBC that have seemingly been scrubbed to avoid mentioning the violent crackdown in Kiev today as well as title and url “wording” changes like Article 1 above. Since it was a little more subtle, other than adding irrelevant Harper Regime Minister photo-op vote pandering dribblings, and done behind the scenes within the slideshow scripts, we’ll present both for further review of the text portion. Of special concern is the image swaps (where the text 1 of 13 is located in the article) which are explained further down. The most noteworthy is image 1, the removal of the violent crackdown in Kiev. Please note that this article is a combo of files from the AP (Associated Propaganda) as well as Reuters in cahoots with The Canadian Press.

Russia bans food imports from Canada, other countries for 1 year
Ban covers meat, fish, milk, fruit, vegetables from Canada, the U.S., EU

The Canadian Press Posted: Aug 07, 2014 5:31 AM ET
Last Updated: Aug 07, 2014 9:53 AM ET

Russia is responding to fresh sanctions from Canada, the U.S. and other countries with a ban on food imports for a year.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev says the ban covers Canada, the U.S. the European Union, Australia, Norway and covers:

Meat.
Fish.
Milk and milk products.
Fruit and vegetables.

The move announced Thursday was taken on orders from President Vladimir Putin in response to sanctions imposed over the crisis in Ukraine. The ban will cost Western farmers billions of dollars but also isolates Russian consumers from world trade to a degree unseen since Soviet days.

Russia’s sanctions will mostly affect Canada’s pork industry. Canada’s agricultural exports to Russia amounted to $563 million in 2012, according to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and most of them were frozen pork.

Canada on Wednesday slapped new sanctions and travel bans on several top Russian and Ukrainian politicians and groups with ties to Putin’s government. Those sanctions, imposed in co-ordination with the U.S. and the EU, came amid reports Russia is massing thousands of troops along the Ukrainian border.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has frequently said Russia’s occupation of the Crimean Peninsula and provocative military activity in eastern Ukraine is a “grave concern” to Canada and the world.

Harper said Canada is prepared to take further actions if Putin’s government continues its military aggression.

Russian economy already showing effects

The announcement saw Russian bond yields rise to their highest levels in years and Moscow’s already reeling share prices extend a sell-off.

Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov acknowledged that the measures would cause a short-term spike in inflation, but said he did not see a danger in the medium or long term. He said Russia would compensate with more imports of products from other suppliers such as Brazilian meat and New Zealand cheese.

Russia depends heavily on imported foodstuffs — most of it from the West — particularly in the largest and most prosperous cities such as Moscow. In 2013 the EU’s agricultural exports to Russia totalled $15.8 billion US, while the U.S. Department of Agriculture says food and agricultural imports from the U.S. amounted to $1.3 billion.

Medvedev argued that the ban would give Russian farmers, who have struggled to compete with Western products, a good chance to increase their market share.

But experts said that local producers will find it hard to fill the gap left by the ban, as the nation’s agricultural sector has continued to suffer from poor efficiency and shortage of funds.

While the government claimed it will move quickly to replace Western imports by importing more food from Latin America, Turkey and ex-Soviet nations to avoid empty shelves and price hikes, analysts predicted that it will further speed up inflation.

Moscow will be hit hard

The damage to consumers inflicted by the ban will be felt particularly hard in big cities like Moscow, where imported food fills an estimated 60-70 per cent of the market.

Russians have relished imported food since the fall of the Soviet Union, when year-round supplies of fresh fruit and vegetables arrived and ubiquitous cheap American frozen chicken quarters became known as “Bush’s legs” after the then president.

Medvedev said Russia is also considering banning Western carriers from flying over Russia on flights to and from Asia — a move that would significantly swell costs and increase flight time. He said a decision on that hasn’t been made yet.

Protesters hold a Molotov cocktail during clashes with pro-government forces at Independence Square in Kyiv on Thursday. Tensions flared in the square, the scene of street protests that toppled a Moscow-backed president in February, when protesters still camped there clashed with city workers who tried to clear away their tents.

Russia may also introduce restrictions regarding imports of planes, navy vessels and cars, Medvedev said, but added that the government will realistically assess its own production potential.

Medvedev made it clear that Russia hopes that the sanctions will make the West revise its policy and stop trying to pressure Russia with sanctions.

“We didn’t want such developments, and I sincerely hope that our partners will put a pragmatic economic approach above bad policy considerations,” he said, adding that the ban could be lifted earlier if the West shows a “constructive approach.”

If the West doesn’t change course, Russia may follow up by introducing restrictions regarding imports of planes, navy vessels, cars and other industrial products, Medvedev warned, but added that the government will move carefully.

“The government understands how important such co-operation is, and naturally, we have a realistic assessment of our own capacities,” he said.

EU Commission spokesman Frederic Vincent voiced regret about the ban. He said the commission still has to assess the potential impact, and reserves “the right to take action as appropriate.”

Article 2 EDITED

This article was a little more subtly edited as the day progressed. While we are still sifting through the text, the most noteworthy edit was to the slideshow (13 of 13) contained towards the end. The first 2 images were swapped out, one was related to the violent crackdown in Kiev and the other was of the situation in the hospital (see below for the urls and captions).

Russia sanctions show Putin’s ‘short-sighted desperation,’ Canada says
Ban covers meat, fish, milk, fruit, vegetables from Canada, the U.S., EU

CBC News Posted: Aug 07, 2014 5:31 AM ET
Last Updated: Aug 07, 2014 2:56 PM ET

Canada will not be intimidated by Russia’s ban on its food imports, Industry Minister James Moore said Thursday, warning that the sanctions will hurt Russian consumers more than Canadians.

“We will certainly look at the impact of these sanctions on the Canadian economy, but they will in no way cause us to have any hesitation in the principled position we’ve taken in opposing [Russian President] Vladimir Putin’s regime,” Moore said during a news conference in Montreal.

Russia responded Thursday to fresh sanctions from Canada, the U.S. and other countries with a ban on food imports for a year. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced that the ban includes Canada, the U.S. the European Union, Australia, Norway and others. Banned items include:

Meat.
Fish.
Milk and dairy products.
Fruit and vegetables.

Moore said the sanctions show the importance of expanding free trade, including the Harper government’s drive toward a free-trade deal with the European Union.

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz made similar comments in a statement Thursday, criticizing Putin’s “short-sighted desperation.”

“Our government will continue to put Canada’s national interests first, but we cannot allow business interests alone to dictate our foreign policy,” Ritz said.

Russia’s move was taken on orders from Putin in response to sanctions imposed over the crisis in Ukraine. The ban will cost farmers in North America, Europe and Australia billions of dollars but also isolates Russian consumers from world trade to a degree unseen since Soviet days.

Canada had on Wednesday slapped new sanctions and travel bans on several top Russian and Ukrainian politicians and groups with ties to Putin’s government. Those sanctions, imposed in co-ordination with the U.S. and the EU, came amid reports Russia is massing thousands of troops along the Ukrainian border.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has frequently said Russia’s occupation of the Crimean Peninsula and provocative military activity in eastern Ukraine is a “grave concern” to Canada and the world.

Russia’s sanctions will mostly affect Canada’s pork industry. Canada’s agricultural exports to Russia amounted to $563 million in 2012, though Jim Laws of the Canadian Meat Council said that number dropped to $260 million last year.

Laws told CBC News Network pork producers will start to feel the effects right away, with up to 1,000 container loads of pork on ships bound for Russia.

Laws was optimistic that much of the meat could be re-directed to other countries or back to Canada, but said that the redirection alone would cost the industry “quite a bit of money.”

“We’re fortunate that we have many markets for pork around the world. Last year, we sold some $3.2 billion worth of pork to over 120 different countries. Russia, however, was the fourth most important market” behind U.S., Japan and China, he said.

Geoff Irvine, head of the Lobster Council of Canada, said the Russian sanctions are “not good for Canada.”

“For lobster, Russia is a small but potentially good market. The biggest impact on seafood in Canada will be on northern shrimp, and maybe cheaper fish like Pacific hake and herring.”

Russia depends heavily on imports

Russian stock indexes initially fell by about 1.5 per cent on the news before recovering most of the losses a few hours later.

Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov acknowledged that the measures would cause a short-term spike in inflation, but said he did not see a danger in the medium or long term. He said Russia would compensate with more imports of products from other suppliers such as Brazilian meat and New Zealand cheese.

While the government claimed it will move quickly to replace Western imports by importing more food from Latin America, Turkey and ex-Soviet nations to avoid empty shelves and price hikes, analysts predicted that it will further speed up inflation.

Chris Weafer, an analyst at Macro Advisory in Moscow, said the ban will likely speed up inflation and further cloud an already grim economic outlook. “Along with higher interest rates, higher food costs will mean that households have less money to spend and that will depress the economy,” he said.

Market watchers said consumers in the expensive food segment will suffer the most, losing access to goods like French cheeses and Parma ham, but others will also eventually feel the brunt as food variety will shrink and inflationary pressures increase. With retail chains stocked up for months ahead, the ban will take time to hurt, however.

The measure led to sardonic comments across Russian online media and liberal blogs, bringing reminiscences of empty store shelves during the Soviet times, but there was no immediate indication of consumers trying to stock up.

STEP RIGHT: Correspondent of “Reporter” spent two weeks in the “Right Sector” [translated]

STEP RIGHT

The correspondent of “Reporter” spent two weeks in the “right sector” and learned who the radicals as they beat titushek and what they should expect from the government

Lyrics: Igor Burdyga Photos: Maxim Dondyuk for “Reporter”

“Death vorogov” – inscription over the entrance to the fifth floor houses the unions.
“Death vorogov” – displayed a black marker on my green army helmet.
“Death vorogov” – we shout in unison several times a day in response to the house ” Glory to the nation!. ”
We – “Right sector”

Thy name – Field

Join the ranks of the “right sector” was much easier than I imagined. February 1, after a couple of weeks after the first collision on Hrushevskoho I change hairstyle, say goodbye to the beard, put on clothes easier and come to the tent of the “right sector” on Independence Square.

– Join us on the fifth floor can. Ask a guard to you spent – genially advises young hour, basking near a makeshift stove of two metal barrels.

Strict protection of the House of Trade Unions is also recruits.

– Come, come, reinforcements – called show me the way a man for 40 years. – And then to the right, but not for self-defense?

A short climb allows me not to answer the question. Today, however, I will ask him a few more times.

– More recruits? – Now wonders already watch the fifth floor. – Guys, look: the rod and the rod. Catch up on the corridor, the kid over there before you come in for an interview went.

“Interview” holds a tall young man, who looked about 25 – as it turns out later, one of the senior commanders of the SS. Black trousers, camouflage jacket, long Cossack Oseledets sticking out tucked balaclavas.

– Why did you decide to join the “right quadrant?” – He asks the main question, without asking any documents or even names.

– After the mayhem that occurred on Hrushevskoho I think you are the only organization capable of defending Maidan against the regime. I want to help with this – I say it still houses a learned phrase. Come with me boy says something about the traditions of the Cossacks and national pride. Commander apparently satisfied with our answers.

– I must warn you that you are entering into a militant organization. For your actions, you may have to deal with law enforcement, to stand trial, could face imprisonment, health and even life – he says, probably more than once repeated disclaimer showing for persuasiveness bandaged hand: – It makes me a splinter Hrushevskoho to hurt.

We were questioned about specific skills. Very need translators and programmers – SS ready for “the release of a”. I want to know about the lives of ordinary men, so am not torn on the “thieves” positions – represent simple supermarket worker from Kherson.

– Martial arts, firearms?

– I shoot from the hunting, but no guns, no permission asked.

– That’s good.

– And what is from what to shoot? I thought guns from the cops …

– It will be necessary, and we can find, – dark commander.

Having dealt with the skills, he directs us to one of the units (right down the hall, third door on the other side). There we were met by commander – even younger than the previous one.

– Radical (names and aliases of all the characters, except for public figures are changed. – “Reporter”) – he seems. – Think of yourself pseudo.

From now on I’m Field. Radical records to add at my “real” name that I came up with on the fly, age and contact details, promising to destroy records at the first sign of danger.

– Welcome to the “Right sector” fighters!

Making It took us just over an hour. Nearing night, and I ask for leave “for other things”, promising to return in the morning to finally quartered. Come with me boy asks permission to sleep at home.

– And today I have a birthday wish to make it. I just turned 18. Coming to a “Right sector” – the main gift to adulthood did not take.

– Okay, leave the location squad authorize. Tomorrow now passes without them on the fifth floor admitted.

Step right.  Photo 1“Right sector” took responsibility for the outbreak of the January clashes Hrushevskoho and believes that the victory they won thanks to him

Summer camp for overage

– “Right sector”, the rise! – Stentorian cry of duty on the floor – much better than an alarm clock. – Wake-up! Wake-up!

Fifth floor rises at eight in the morning. Come to the aid of duty commanders orders, do not hesitate to wake the sleeping soldiers in the hallway light kicks. Collect artless bed (mine is karemat and sleeping bag), to wash, to drink coffee – this is ten minutes.Then build and morning exercise – “ruhanka.”

In the “right sector,” I have a few days. Our unit “Zasіka” placed in dual office Federation of Trade Unions and its surroundings. In the smaller room has been living for a week as a cold radical, more – a few fighters. The first couple of days there and I’m trying to turn over – fearing catch the eye of a former colleague, now press secretary SS Artem Skoropadsky not to recognize and not issued. But the place is small, and had to move into the corridor.

“Ruhanka” – a set of exercises, consisting of jogging to the European area and back and simple exercises near the tent “right sector” (bottom of the stairs leading to the October Palace). Tolerated even for me, not really a sports guy. Besides charging for the day yet, as a rule, two workouts: dogfight maneuvers and heavy shields. Here, in principle, all the care in a peaceful day.

Another is a regular duty: Internal – at the entrance to the fifth floor, near the elevator and near the headquarters and external – Substation near the tent. Last – a real chance to experience for yourself the people’s love, especially on weekends. The fact that the tent is taken care of citizens: money, food, clothing, helmets, cigarettes, petrol and plastic on the Molotov cocktails and etcetera, etcetera. Carry bags, if not bags. On the first Sunday of my duty, within 15 minutes of the national council, “the right sector” passed about 2 thousand UAH.

– Boys, you heroes! Take tea with cakes, and in the evening we will bring you a cake – circling near our stove two older women.

– In the evening is another change will be. But still carry – we pay for the generosity stretched courtesy. For example, allow us to be photographed against the backdrop of a banner, patiently listen to advice from “cushions fighters” – people’s love requires sacrifice.

During training with shields we demonstrate sight in exchange for bread. Take a look at how the squad for 15-20 seconds builds almost impenetrable (in theory) “turtle” marching awkwardly and it withstands the attack alleged enemy, going in the evenings a couple of hundred onlookers.

– Order “Zasіka” build “turtle”! To close the shield! Hold on!

– We “Berkut”, all you n … n, give up – it’s to help us with training came another group.

Here in the “turtle” flying rocks, logs, firecrackers (carefully, eyes!). We punched a running blizzard on their shields with batons, snatching from the construction of front (lying, do not take – “Right sector” does not betrays!). We survive. Applause, the curtain.

– Boys, why all this? We are in a peaceful protest. Lord God you for it … – pop up unexpectedly between the “attackers” and “protect” the little old lady brisk. General laughter drowns her last words, a pair of fighters carefully removes granny away from the parade ground.

Then we sharimsya on YouTube looking for videos with workouts. Show newcomers and their children from other units with the obligatory description details.

– Here, dark, can not see, but I was standing right here, you see how it us!

– And I have a firecracker exploded right under foot!

– Yeah, but remember, he grabbed you by the board and began to pull out, and I keep, do not let …

Indeed, more than any other “Right sector” just loves “Right sector.” This month truce between January and February collisions self-importance fighters grew with each passing day.

– Yes, if we do not, these draconian laws nobody had not canceled.

– Yes, we have got a grenade and Self sat out in the bushes, came all gotovenkoe …

It says young people on the fifth floor where about three quarters. In our group, for example, only two of more than 30 years: small, always hoarse Coat (40) and humorist Will (50) – simple workers of the Central Ukrainian regions.

Step right.  Photo 2

In the smoking room, you can catch people and interesting. For example, veterans of the UNA-UNSO (included in the SS, but was stationed at the time separately), cheered and fasten the front camouflage. Caricature mustache twirling, they regurgitate old martial adventures:

– … They Dudayev people somehow put a crate of beer German – Muslima same’m not drunk. So guys dressed in Russian form and this went to their compartment tank company. Found some suckers out there and say, little brother, lend us the tank for an hour or two – it is necessary to drive into the village, and we will treat you a beer.They agreed, and in our tank and climbed, not even when he departed, direct fire by Russian artillery battery on the radio … And lit a panic: “Czechs” fit, “the Czechs!” In general, the Russian artillery Russian as a tank company and put all. Dudayev then they still put a case of beer.

– Of course, returned to Ukraine, but here the characters nafig not needed. Drink started with longing. We have ourselves in Cherkassy, ​​remember, went into one Handel, and whether there is debris, or some bandits sitting. And the song book constantly, you know, “Lord, officers.” We gave them an amicable explained that this song affects our aesthetic sensibilities, and they began bychit. Well, earrings tower blew off, he pulled a grenade from his pocket, and pulled the pin in them …

Youth listening with wide-open mouths. Such stories here – a kind of meager part of the entertainment program, a way to kill free time between workouts and whose duty is a heap. It only chessboard three stages: one of amateurs, another of the masters, the third of checkers players. Books around the floor – part of patriotic literature provided “Trident” (nationalist organization, a member of the SS), is taken from the library of the Ukrainian House on parole. Maps soon banned, although played on squats and push-ups. Separate company meets regularly to play “Mafia”. It has its funny nuances to “mafia” all shout, usually the “Gang Go!” And to “police” – “Down with the cops!” And «ACAB!» (From the English. All Cops Are Bastards – «all cops – Bastards “). Creek is on the entire floor, and night duty unceremoniously dispersed players – just like in the pioneer camp counselors during the quiet hours.

Happen and more sophisticated cultural events. Periodically someone brings tickets for events in the Ukrainian House, but wanting to go to concerts of opera singers and poets little. Sold-out concerts going on their own “right sector”, such as when guests come from the group of musicians “Saucier Perun” or writer and showman Antin Mukharsky aka Orestes Fierce.

– I’m glad that now a new generation of young conscious people willing to take up arms. Maybe you can break this vicious circle, in which we were, started their struggle for national liberation in the late 1980s. If you do not, these “three heroes” would have long trampled – a preamble Mukharsky says before performances.

– I, frankly, and became a nationalist because of his songs – whispers in my ear radical.

Moskal vіchny barbarian vіchny ham

Brood rosіyskoї zemlі!

Chuzhe zagarbat, znischit temple –

All Tse vmіyut moskalі!

Brother rosіyanin, zrozumіy,

Blagayut sky i Plot:

In Muscovite sobі ti kill,

Kill five in sobі Muscovite!

– This is the chorus sings with demonstrators Orest Fierce.

Builders white paradise

Of course, the “Muscovites”, or Russian, and there among the “right sector.”Nationality here, on the one hand, to ask not accepted, and the other – many are proud conditionally multinational composition. It is said that among the demonstrators even lived quietly at one time is a faithful Jew, although hard to believe in it with difficulty.

– Hey, boy, and you do not zhidenok accidentally? – Hangs in the smoking room of a young lad Mars, football ultras from Dnepropetrovsk.

– No, what are you saying, I blooded Ukrainian – with bravado meets boy, just in case clinging to the wall.

– Yes shutyu I shutyu, relax. Smoke give better – you, a Jew, stocks, probably.

Actually, friendly atmosphere that prevails on the fifth floor, something akin to Gogol’s “partnership” – does not provide for such conflicts. Even a formal appeal to the “right sector” – “friends”. But the place for ideological disputes always exists.

Commitment to national-patriotic ideology, of course, is a kind of “default option” of fighters, but the truth is everyone still own. “Right sector” – almost an informal association of several radical organizations, besides most activists generally comes from the street. So the views range from romantic nationalism and “loyalty glorious Cossack traditions” to outright neo-fascism.

Step right.  Photo 3Appearance among the protesters at the first victims Hrushevskoho only inspired “Right sector”

Morning near the washbasins in the toilet encounters Defined Man 25 years with a huge, tattooed on the entire back swastika. Leaning over the mirror, he shaves his head gently disposable razor. This is one of a small detachment of soldiers Donetsk ultras – D88 (88 – digital signage abbreviation HH, or Heil Hitler!). Celtic crosses, shoes Dr. Martens, jackets Thor Steinar, knives on his belt – in general, the real warriors of the white race.

– We construct a white paradise! Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil! – Jokingly greet their players in the “mafia.”

– What do you know – dismisses the youngest of D88. – Hitler was right, you do “Mein Kampf” read?

– A lot of what Hitler was right – it already recognizes one of the men in my squad, 24-year-old graduate student from one historian southern regional center. – But he was an imperialist, would enslave other peoples. I for nationalism in a single Ukraine, we do not need someone else. Although harsh methods are needed. My will be, so I used ten millions in our country just shot, and another five million – in the camp!Clear Ukrainian nation is necessary, and then divorced a whole bunch of rednecks hohlyatsky.

– What do you then will differ from the commies? – Enter into dispute Bulbash universal favorite. Young humorist, made everyone understand their native language, he came from somewhere in Grodno, support, he said, a new stage of “national liberation struggle”. – Overview – fighting katsapskim imperialism, with Putin, who wants to recreate his great Russian.

– It is true Bulbash case say. But never mind, we now we’ll manage, then you’ll pick, Luke, from the throne, cast off, and then with Putin’s face it. Liberate the prison of nations!

The “liberation of the prison of nations” too ambiguous attitude. Some of the men said about freedom of the oppressed peoples of the Caucasus, Siberia and Central Asia, part – the “dirty gooks” who should be to blame.

These disputes are days, evenings and nights. Although for many hours and have things more interesting – patrols.

At night all cats – titushki

– No, you guys as you want, but I’m tired of sitting around. There’s people from the neighboring unit is titushek catch, I’m with them – it’s your first night on the fifth floor I heard from one of our guys.

By 10-11 pm in the hallway going to several groups of four or five people in full uniform and go walking around the grounds of the Maidan. In his hands, as opposed to training, “arguments” – treated pieces of rebar, steel pipe, or lucky enough, baseball bats. Now PS – counterintelligence and police of customs at the same time.

– Titushek, titushek lead! “Right sector”, wear a mask! – Distributed on the floor in half an hour. The stairs with his hands cocked drag resisting man with a bag on his head.

– Guys, do you mean, do you mean? – Only he mutters.

– Shut up, bitch! Boys, and I let him have ye … with legs. Nn-on! Who is he? Where did you find him?

– As you were! – Intervene in the situation of someone command. – The toilet of his lead. Does not come here no more, let interrogation spend!

After the interrogation, sometimes someone has to wash the toilet with blood. And at night lead to a dozen detainees, most – three or four. Reasons most unpretentious:

– Seemed suspicious, asked to produce documents in response began “bychit and swing right.”

– Stood and berated “Right sector.”

– Said of the “right sector”, but his kick from the documents.

When the causes are not found, starts catching “live bait.” Man from a neighboring unit shows me several souvenir UAH 200 bills.

– Find a suspicious client, I went up to him, saying, saying, I was there samooboronovtsy traversed, help is needed to pay ready. Show money. If you agree – then titushka, and we knit.

Detained on one night the guy certified Assistant People’s Deputy from the CPU and hidden under a jacket baton pounce all. Inspired by the “right sector” there is no limit.

– Here it here Behave! Nn-on, bitch, take it! That b … qb kommunyatskaya on Maidan wanted to attack? Nn-on!

– Boys, boys, and let me go, can I have it?! – 18 years old girl, a couple of hours ago to run on the floor and shows all photos seals on the phone, too eager for execution.

– Set aside, moved everything I said! – Again yells one of the commanders. – You tear it prior to being questioned!

Step right.  Photo 4

Formally night patrols SS leadership are discouraged, but not condemned. Only occasionally from someone older can hear something like “stop, but then it is better than we” Berkut “.” But this is rare. But the competition announced by the friendly “okolosvobodovskoy” militant organization C14, greeted with enthusiasm.”Competition for the best amateur video on how to be dangerous titushkoy. Video work should illustrate the possible consequences of cooperation with criminal authorities. The prize fund – 3000 UAH “, – reads an ad on page PS” VKontakte “.

When radical recovers, we also pull it out on patrol. One group I join.

Maydanovskim frosty evening move out to the side Hrushevskoho. You can only patrol the area inside the barricades, although in the early days after the clashes titushek searched around Kiev. First down in the “Globe”, where are marching proudly past the frightened guards and expensive storefronts. Moment so majestic that even decide to take a picture.

– Damn, how expensive everything! Look, borscht 25 USD! – Perplexed boy from the Lviv region. – Damn, and who only pays for these sushi at one hundred and fifty?

Cautious approach to the barricade near the stadium “Dinamo”, where our part policemen broadcast a documentary about corruption Interior Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko and their – “Ninth company of” Fyodor Bondarchuk.

– Good evening, we are “right sector.” How to post? Suspicious items, troublemakers have? – Politely greets with radical samooboronovtsami-guards barricades.

– And your b … qb, what is it? – On the move “runs” strong man in soiled by soot from burned tires camouflage. As it turns out later – the chief of the guard.

– We patrol Maidan looking titushek.

– You, b … qb, passed Maidan. Who promised to free travel on Hrushevskoho, eh? P … blow out of here before it’s too late. After midnight in this area no one but hundreds of our Self enters.

“Right sector” with the Afghans did a few days earlier made a statement about release readiness barricades Hrushevskoho if detained during clashes in January will be released. Like this is not all.

– Yes, what is the use of Hrushevskoho? Immediately swept away all the top in 10 minutes, I’m here already fought. And we have fifty guys sitting in prisons! – Trying unsuccessfully to explain radical.

On the other we will be greeted by a barricade.

– Oh, “Right sector”! What’s your call, if the cops will attack? We are here only eight people on duty, be spread as kittens!

For talking about the tactics of offense and defense is our main goal – find titushek – somehow goes by the wayside. Slightly froze, we go to Ukrainian house drinking tea for almost an hour and stuck it in the library, in the cinema.

Already at the exit radical pulls Laser Flashlight (“so the cops beat the eyes”) and, fooling around, begins to shine a green beam that the windows of the hotel “Dnepr” UNIAN or building, by barricades. With barricades soon revoked another laser pointer. Together with the radicals they “overtures” Cabinet window, then crossed in the sky and arrange incredible dancing. We laugh heartily.

– “Star Wars” Jedi fight, honestly, – poured radical.

Already near the House of Trade Unions appears that another group of our party has already led to one titushku floor. Someone grabbed patrols from non-SS units of ultra-C14 and “Narnia.” This radical can not forgive.

– And let’s go to the “Bill”, there is always some kind of scum drunk hanging out.Maybe someone picked up.

But even there, we will fail. Kindly, in principle, radical, seeing drunk, starts to shame them for violation of Prohibition, while at ordinary itching.

– Boys, why are you, well, a little bit drunk. We’re his, of Self, of Chernigov tent.

– P … u, me too self-defense. Drink of the night for all to see, and then about the Maidan will say that this bunch of drunks. No, but if it is absolutely unbearable, hide you in his tent, and drink! – Mumbles radical, causing regular “campers” clean up the bottle.

By the way, the “right sector” basically nobody drinks, although these streyteydzherov just a few people. Just such rules. A couple of times I’ve seen someone from commanders quarreled with someone, grab things and said that he was going to drink, but for the Maidan area and will not return to sleep. Ultras neurasthenic Mars, after learning that he had changed the girl, first smashed his fists against the walls of the toilet, and then, “namutil” chekushku cognac, went to drink it in his end of the corridor. That’s all precedents.

This evening we are still stuck in a bind. Our remark about alcohol greeted near the same “Bill” company starts “bychit.” Nerves to the limit, and we belive “cool” most brazen. The rest take out knives and “traumatic.”

– Hey, “Right sector”, are you really popuhli? We are their ultras Dynamo!

– So, what did you?

– What did you?

The conflict can be solved amicably. Disgusted, we do another lap on Khreschatyk – all is quiet. On Radical grumbling for leniency.

– Where in the subway? Who are they? – In the underpass under Maidan stops us another self-defense units. – Your same has been said, after 23:00 we transition patrol, 17th hundred. Get out of here!

– Hundreds of you, in fact, we just go!

– On top of the pass, the radicals crappy.

Have to obey – more of them. But self-defense, we do not get angry for the first time, and conflicts between the SS and hundreds occur regularly.

– No, you saw what their form, what equipment. We like tramps around them.Bummed for party money muzzle otela, thumps now from idleness.

– Yeah, but will mess, will run first.

They say the SS command regularly goes to meetings Self Andrew Parubiya for lack of discipline and clashes with hundreds. Several times during my stay on the fifth floor have raised the alarm – go to deal with someone from the “Freedom” or other units. A couple of times we barricaded on the floor, waiting for the attack samooboronovtsev. Nerves during a truce to the limit at all, but, as a rule, conflict can be solved peacefully.

– Come with us to better “white march” today! Fun! – Mars offers when I retell it in the morning patrol details. – So I recently hachey near two metro TNA … l for a sweet soul. Flip flop one grabbed by the hair, she cries: “For sto, sto ve doing?” And I told her: “Shut up, bitch n … doglazaya!”

I can only politely decline.

The situation becomes

For such uncomplicated entertainment flying days. Absence of any action and was active communication with the leadership gradually demoralizing troops. Efforts “Trident” (namely, the organization claimed almost the entire leadership of the “rules of the sector”) to support at least some semblance of military discipline seem futile.Duty to posts not delved, the schedule is not met. Trying to fight the partisans on night patrol also flying down the drain. Command forbids leaving the fifth floor after curfew, but patrols now just began to emerge earlier. Growing discontent among soldiers.

– Here, before the “Trident” a blanket tied it with titushkami easier dealt – complain to each other in the hallway, two ultras from somewhere in the southern regions. – Who does not directly hit him once again.

– Nafig general should raise them here. Interrogations any, consequence. Brought behind the barricades and there rivet properly.

When I D88 violates strict rule that you must ask permission from the commander, before going to the alignment of detachment.

– Fuck you by x … – throws one of the ultras in response to our observation of misconduct.

Anger is growing among all. Begins bickering for coming in limited quantities vests – men compared to their protective characteristics, trying to “vymutit” poprochnee protection. On training in unarmed combat instructor says:

– Remember: “Berkut” we beat only the neck, the other places they reserved ammunition. “Argument” can be broken mount on the helmet with his fist hit once in the Adam’s apple.

– So it can kill – whether asks whether someone resents failure.

– Yes, you can. As for me, with the “Golden Eagles” ceremony nothing riddance. The main thing – forget about it hit after it’s over.

Hell anyone here forget. Nothing better to do we upgrade weapons: bits strengthen nails, weight pipe, a couple of guys, after procuring the Afghans anvil, forge reinforcement of short blades.

Prepare and weapons seriously. I do not know who responded to the call of the SS leader Dmitry Yarosha bring “Boomstick” Maidan – such weapons I have not found, but pyrotechnic laboratory on the fifth floor was.

Was before the explosion, during which the severed hand of one of the men, and the second eye injury. Then “Right sector”, said the terrorist attack against him: say, under the guise of medical supplies to the floor handed bomb that exploded when unpacked package. The next day, police reported investigating fact careless handling of explosives.

Step right.  Photo 5Leader of the “right sector” Dmitry Jaros calls himself “commander, not a politician,” but populism in his speeches lack

Me this morning on the floor was not, and came back and I found it full of chaos.Several hours command fend off journalists positions have not changed, the men did not say anything. Then, still repeated the official version of the attack. However, in the evening on the floor rumors that exploded some pyrotechnic laboratory reagents.

She was right in front of the sole active toilets, served concurrently Smokingroom.Rabotavschih laboratory chemistry students forever blamed for the stench in the hallway of their experiments with sulfur, potassium chlorate salt and God knows what. According to eyewitnesses, the explosion occurred there.

– I ran out into the hallway, and then the kid off, without the hands, blood gushing, and shouts: “Kill me, Dobey” Well, we have it tied up, and then the ambulance pulled herself – says during the break one of the workers infirmary.

By command of the fifth floor some people come dressed “by a citizen.” Scraps of quiet conversation hear a suggestion to evacuate the lab in some basement. The next night it transported, we commit to the minibus to carry sealed bags and boxes.

It turns out that the last two weeks of the High Command was busy working with the regions. And then on page PS “VKontakte” message appeared on the appointment of the head of the organization in a particular area. Who came from the west told recruits, both in the field “Right sector” crushes under her self-captures local administration.

In the regions of Kiev and leaves agitmaterial: printed copies at least 10 thousand copies interview Jarosz “Ukrainian Truth”.

Yarosh periodically scurries back and forth on the floor – you can see that he has a lot of work. But it seems that general demoralization makes finding the time and soldiers – one day we announce that from now on the evening before the prayer will be meeting with the “provіdnikom.” Markedly is inspired people.

The meeting is held in one of the cramped office of trade unionists, which barely squeezed into two squads. Sam Yarosh, smart, in field uniform, easily fits into the image of “the commander, not politics.” However, his speech was full of frank populism.

– Friends, you are without a doubt the vanguard of this revolution, the best part of it.It is understood by all. “Right sector” has broad support among the population.Criticize us only Russian and European imperialists liberasty who do not need Ukrainian national revolution and created as a result of a strong nation-state – he starts nodding their approval fighters.

– Isolation is not far off, “Right sector” yet to play a key role in the current protests, which will be assessed at its true worth after the victory. That’s why the most important task now is to create a national organization to combat not only, but also with the political wing, which would ensure our future presence in power. I think after winning “the right sector” should form a powerful vertical power unit of the new Ukrainian state, the only way we can complete the national revolution, to restore order in Ukraine. All in your hands, the men!

Present noticeably animated. Cheers and Yarosh:

– Yes, we do not like much in other organizations and parties involved in the revolution now. But the movement to split incorrectly from a tactical point of view.Not worth going to open conflict with the same “freedom” or self-defense forces, it makes us weaker. A “Right sector” should remain strong: believe me, we will need more strength to the overall victory after the deal with these weaklings!

First time in nearly two weeks of the “right sector” I was really creepy after these words and applause that they caused.

Farewell to the Slavs

Impersonate a long time for a man whose views on violence, xenophobia, racism frankly alien, proved to be no easy task – the expiration of the second week I order shattered nerves. In addition, after the explosion of information leaked to the Interior Ministry, “Right sector” starts “Paranoia”: everyone understands that there is spyware on the floor and they should look for.

Big difference between journalists and police here do not seem to observe.Journalists, however, have to be much more common – the flow of colleagues, eager to interview with Yarosh, does not dry out, but also the information they provide an incomplete and distorted.

– Wait, wait, wait, that’s about the best Russian Muscovites and strike – two commanders in the corridor proofreads message to harmonize interview some foreign publication. – Replace the best criticism of oligarchs – they love it.

When given after on floor titushkoy begins to break the crew of one of the national channels, she gets furious resistance.

– What are you, not the same as people in broad daylight miss you I press secretary call now! – Shouts journalist.

– Girl, we do not have to explain anything to you! Leave the floor immediately – the crew almost pushed back into the elevator.

– It’s time to have someone of these journalists to catch and how to smack. To discourage others were – it already then someone shouts.

In general, it is clear: it is time to bring down. Radical I warned that I must return to Kherson to work, at least in order to take another vacation. Promise to contact the local representatives of the SS, and in case of mobilization urgently travel to Kiev.

– Field! So sorry you’re leaving – told me goodbye commander. – Hold on, and be careful. Come back!

The guys from the squad arrange more warm send-off. We hug and exchange “nepalevnymi ‘phone numbers. Feeling of summer camp with me again.

Instead of an epilogue

After a few days on the Maidan shooting starts.

The next time the guys from the squad I meet on Thursday, February 20, at the hospital on the territory of St. Michael’s Cathedral. One of my acquaintances are not heavy wounded and walks here with a friend.

I know that the House of Trade Unions of them evacuated quickly enough on the front they were defending basically a plot near the tents of the “right sector.” No fatalities, and no one was hurt seriously – they relocated to the shops the capital.

– Field, come to us! We now actually safer – confidentially looking me in the eye tells the boy that week and a half ago jokingly argued that the armor on his back he does not need, because it’s not going to retreat. His baby face gray and haggard, but the fight was a fanatical light.

VIEW FROM LEFT TO RIGHT

Step right.  Photo 6

The events described in this report occurred in the first half of February, during the fragile truce between the government and protestors. A few days after I left, “Right sector”, in the center of Kiev there was a tragedy that claimed the lives of over 80 people. On the fate of the heroes of reportage I almost did not know – I only know that after the massacre they all survived. Words can not express how glad I am.

Although, of course, I never concealed his negative attitude to Ukrainian, Russian, Jewish, Tatar, German and any other nationalism, and I think this ideology alien to the democratic society. Needless to say, for me, is unacceptable xenophobia, militarism, racism and neo-fascism. All this for two weeks, I’ve seen enough.

Start work on this reportage prompted me skyrocketing popularity of the “right sector” and other right-wing radicals after the January clashes Hrushevskoho.Popularity among the participants in the revolution, whose purpose – to overthrow undemocratic power. Why, I wondered? In their willingness to act decisively? In the new faces? In an open criticism annoying all opposition politicians? Maybe a lack of information?

For example, the phenomenon of street political terror, most Ukrainians met only last year, when “citizens athletic appearance”, titled titushkami, began to attack the opposition rallies and beat activists. I remember sounded the idea that this is a direct result of being in power people with criminal records.

But for many of my friends such attacks – a constant risk for many years. Commit them, those who are called ultra militants: football fans, members of radical nationalist organizations and parties, informal neofashistkih fighters and racist groups.Object of attack: Left activists, trade unionists, student, feminist and LGBT organizations, some human rights activists and journalists. To the right are ideological opponents – the “anti-fascists”, or simply “mongrel.” Ample reason for grievous bodily.

Such attacks, unfortunately, not uncommon. Can not say that they were suppressed, but publicity is usually not obtained. Most of them simply do not notice or treated them as a conflict marginalized subcultures. Few openly disapproved of aggression against “commies” or “perverts.” The situation worsened last year when, under the slogan “fight fascism” has launched a campaign against the power of the united opposition, which includes the nationalist party “Svoboda”. The word “anti-fascist” instantly became abusive in response to any criticism of the nationalists could often hear accusations of collaboration with “zlochinnoy Vlada.”

In the present revolution activists of “Freedom” and other nationalist organizations, some football fans attended the first days. Despite the fact that the early slogans of European integration and democratization of power to the majority of them were frankly alien. Ultra took over responsibility for law enforcement and immediately tried to expel from Evromaydana-demonstrators “mongrels.” These first attempts of political terror in democratic revolution were suppressed and condemned, but eventually grew radical possibilities.

December 1 crowd, consisting mainly of representatives of right-wing organizations and football ultras tried to storm the presidential administration. Almost immediately from the scene Maidana call them provocateurs, but could not stop. Victims of the senseless and unsuccessful assault veveshnikov unable to produce power as a counterargument to the accusations of hard acceleration Evromaydana first, and as an exception of the current protests peaceful. Participants on assault charges in provocations offended, but to participate in the revolution did not refuse and soon created an informal association that is now known as “Right-wing sector.”

Perhaps the most important unifying thesis for the SS became even nationalism and acceptance of violence as an acceptable and effective means of achieving the goals.Ignoring the power requirements of a peaceful protest, overclocking attempts, the threat from titushek – all this forced Maidan radicals give a mandate to the violence.When in January “Right sector” took responsibility for the outbreak of clashes in Hrushevskoho provocateurs already called opposition politicians, calls to stop fighting.

Once in the “Right sector”, I found there is much less of the very street fighters whose victims became my friends. They were frank minority. But two weeks I have not met a single person admits victory of the revolution peacefully. All blood coveted “Golden Eagle” Yanukovych deputies from the Party of Regions, and sometimes opposition politicians.

After the tragedy that occurred on February 18-20 in Kiev downtown, for some reason I thought that the first step will be Maidana condemnation possible bloodshed, the rejection of coercive methods, the dissolution of the armed forces. That did not happen.

In those days I had to convince a friend from Moscow that the role of radical nationalists, including the “right sector” in our revolution has been greatly exaggerated. “I saw them, they are few, and they are losing support. Our goal – democracy, overthrow the usurper-corrupt, and not limit the rights of Russian-speaking citizens or “- I said.

“What then do you among those people speaking publicly, that democracy – not their option. After all the propaganda against your revolution relied on them! Why do you not abdicate from them? “- Do not let my companion.

I have not found an answer. Just remembered how many of my friends – the protesters in response to the replica residents of South-East of the “Banderivtsy and extremists” on Independence beat their breasts with a cry of “Yes, I think I Banderivtsy and extremist!”.

Two weeks passed. As predicted by my interlocutor Moscow, now played cards ultra Kremlin, fueling separatism and justifying criminal intervention. When, during the last press conference, Vladimir Putin spoke of the “Kiev fascists”, most people of Kiev twisted his finger to his temple. And I learned with horror, though exaggerated, but the familiar picture of the “right sector.” Whose role in the revolution, I hope, will be more fully appreciated.

Meet the Svoboda Party

Since we have previously put together a fairly comprehensive summary regarding the Right Sector, we really wanted to grasp an understanding of the popularity that surrounds the Svoboda Party since they seem poised to not only win the May 25th elections, if there are indeed any, but may well gain a majority. The text of this doc below, aside from this brief hastily composed introduction, will be taken directly from the official Svoboda Party website itself along with the link. Upon reviewing their “program” one can see, if you have read the text of the EU/Ukraine Association Agreement, how the two cannot be reconciled for the most part as integration is not within their mandate, it is indeed the opposite. Not only that, but it may surprise you how different the Svoboda Party is compared to any of the political party’s that currently hold any power, could, “legitimacy” or presence in Canada or the US or the UK or the EU for that matter. They are indeed the anti-party that is anti-establishment and anti-status-quo which explains it’s popularity.

This will certainly cause many unforeseen (?) issues for many of the key players involved in the coup d’etat as the contagion will spread and cannot be isolated within the boundaries of Ukraine. That is why this look into the mandate of the Svoboda Party seems very important for many reasons since they already hold so many high level positions. In addition, it seems rather odd that that we are not being informed, due to the escalating anti-Russia and anti-Putin rhetoric and propaganda spins, about the situations occurring in many other regions of Ukraine, including what has been occurring in the so called pro-EU side, considering the new puppet regime was booed by the protesters as they were announced at Maidan.

It is worth noting that Ukraine is a far more diverse nation than is being reported and there are many minority groups and many in Ukraine speak Russian and other languages. They are Ukrainian citizens that are not necessarily pro-Russia or pro-Putin or anti-EU or anti_Ukraine and their voices are being ignored and silenced and are defiantly afraid for their safety and it is all because of the language they speak. They have been essentially used as scapegoats and media fodder by the Western powers and are faced with unimpeded violence at the hands of the Right Sector and other ultra-nationalist white supremacist groups. This in itself should be an indication that the newly installed government is illegitimate considering the State is not protecting them in any way shape or form, period. Quite the contrary, the State is allowing an unimpeded ethnic cleansing campaign to go unchallenged, which is a violation of not only the EU Integration agreement but international laws

We should also take into consideration the sudden and dramatic narrative shift away from Kiev and towards Crimea, that no matter how they spin it, seems to be very peaceful and orderly as it does not seem like any kind of invasion, but a response that was called for by the regional authorities in the semi-autonomous region of Crimea that have rejected the unconstitutional matter in which the previously and democratically elected government structure was dissolved and has scheduled a referendum.

After reviewing the above Svoboda Party “program” it would be a good idea to review the overview of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement titled “Guide to the Association Agreement” for a deeper understanding of the point we are attempting to articulate.

EU-Ukraine Association Agreement
“Guide to the Association Agreement”

++++ Background:

Relations between the EU and Ukraine are currently based on the Partnership and Co-operation Agreement (PCA) which entered into force in 1998. At the Paris Summit in 2008 the leaders of the EU and Ukraine agreed that an Association Agreement should be the successor agreement to the Partnership and Co-operation Agreement.

The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement (AA) is the first of a new generation of Association Agreements with Eastern Partnership countries. Negotiations on this comprehensive, ambitious and innovative Agreement between the EU and Ukraine were launched in March 2007. In February 2008, following confirmation of Ukraine’s WTO membership, the EU and Ukraine launched negotiations on a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) as a core element of the Association Agreement.

At the 15th Ukraine-EU Summit of 19 December 2011, the EU leaders and President Yanukovych noted that a common understanding on the text of the Association Agreement was reached.

On 30 March 2012 the chief negotiators of the European Union and Ukraine initialled the text of the Association Agreement, which included provisions on the establishment of a DCFTA as an integral part. In this context, chief trade negotiators from both sides initialled the DCFTA part of the Agreement on 19 July 2012. Both EU and Ukraine expressed their common commitment to undertake further technical steps, required to prepare conclusion of the Association Agreement.

++++ Political association and economic integration:

The Association Agreement will constitute a new stage in the development of EU-Ukraine contractual relations, aiming at political association and economic integration and leaving open the way for further progressive developments. The AA provides for a shared commitment to a close and lasting relationship, based on common values, in particular full respect for democratic principles, rule of law, good governance, human rights and fundamental freedoms.

> Wide range of sector cooperation: This ambitious and pioneering Agreement is a concrete way to exploit the dynamics in EU-Ukraine relations, focusing on support to core reforms, on economic recovery and growth, governance and sector co-operation in more than 30 areas, such as energy, transport, environment protection, industrial and small and medium enterprise (SME) cooperation, social development and protection, equal rights, consumer protection, education, training and youth as well as cultural cooperation.

> Trade and Trade related matters (DCFTA): Closer economic integration through the DCFTA will be a powerful stimulant to the country’s economic growth. Approximation of Ukraine to EU legislation, norms and standards, will be the method. As a core element of the Association Agreement, the DCFTA will create business opportunities in both the EU and Ukraine and will promote real economic modernization and integration with the EU. Higher standards of products, better services to citizens, and above all Ukraine’s readiness to compete effectively in international markets should be the result of this process.

> Mobility: The importance of the introduction of a visa free travel regime for the citizens of Ukraine in due course,

1 /5

provided that the conditions for well-managed and secure mobility are in place is recognised in the Agreement.

++++ Content of the Association Agreement

The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement counts in total over 1200 pages and comprises of

> A Preamble as an introductory statement of the Agreement, setting out the Agreement’s purpose and underlying philosophy;

> Seven Titles which concern General Principles; Political Cooperation and Foreign and Security Policy; Justice Freedom and Security; Trade and Trade related matters (DCFTA); Economic and Sector Cooperation; Financial Cooperation with Anti-Fraud Provisions, as well as Institutional, General and Final Provisions;

> 43 Annexes setting out EU legislation to be taken over by a specific date and

> Three Protocols.

The Association Agreement in a nut-shell:

> The AA aims to accelerate the deepening of political and economic relations between Ukraine and the EU, as well as Ukraine’s gradual integration in the EU Internal Market including by setting up a DCFTA.

> The AA is a concrete way to exploit the dynamics in EU-Ukraine relations, focusing on support to core reforms, on economic recovery and growth, governance and sector co-operation.

> The AA constitutes also a reform agenda for Ukraine, based around a comprehensive programme of Ukraine’s approximation of its legislation to EU norms, around which all partners of Ukraine can align themselves and focus their assistance.

> The AA negotiations were not a stand-alone exercise: EU assistance to Ukraine is linked with the reform agenda as it emerges from the result of negotiations. The Comprehensive Institutional Building Programme (CIB) is particularly important in this regard.

++++ Preamble

The PREAMBLE is a selection of the most important areas/facts pertinent to EU-Ukraine relations. It sets out the ambition for a close and lasting relationship. Although it has a non-binding introductory character, it presents important references to common values and could be perceived as a “scene-setter” for the Agreement.

The elements which are set out in the Preamble include among others:

> A reference to common values on which the EU is built – namely democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and rule of law – and which are shared by Ukraine.

> A reference that Ukraine is recognised as a European country which shares a common history and common values with the Member States of the EU.

> A reference to the European aspirations of Ukraine. The EU welcomes Ukraine’s European choice, including its commitment to build deep and sustainable democracy and a market economy.

> An acknowledgement that the political association and economic integration of Ukraine with the EU will depend on progress in the implementation of the Association Agreement as well as Ukraine’s track record in ensuring respect for common values, and progress in convergence with the EU in political, economic and legal areas.

++++ Title I: General Principles

Title I defines the general principles which will form the basis for the domestic and external policies of the Association between the EU and Ukraine namely:

> Respect for democratic principles, human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law.

> The promotion of respect for the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity, inviolability of borders and independence, as well as countering the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction are set out. Moreover, the principles of a free market economy, good governance, the fight against corruption, the fight against different forms of trans-national organised crime and terrorism, the promotion of sustainable development as well as effective multilateralism are central to enhancing the relationship between the EU and Ukraine and will underpin their relationship.

2 /5

++++ Title II: Political dialogue and reform, political association, cooperation and convergence in the field of foreign and security policy

In Title II, the Association Agreement foresees the intensification of the EU-Ukraine political dialogue and cooperation in view of gradual convergence in the area of Common Security and Foreign Policy (CSFP) as well as Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP).

> Title II covers issues such as the aims of political dialogue, dialogue and cooperation on domestic reform as well as foreign and security policy.

> The Agreement foresees several fora for the conduct of political dialogue: the EU-Ukraine Summit will present the highest level of political dialogue. At ministerial level the dialogue will be conducted within the Association Council. The political dialogue will aim inter alia:

>> to deepen political association and increase political and security policy convergence and effectiveness;

>> to promote international stability and security based on effective multilateralism;

>> to strengthen cooperation and dialogue on international security and crisis management, notably in order to address global and regional challenges and key threats;

>> to foster result-oriented and practical cooperation for achieving peace, security and stability on the European continent;

>> to strengthen respect for democratic principles, the rule of law and good governance, human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the rights of persons belonging to national minorities, non-discrimination of persons belon ing to minorities and respect for diversity, and to contribute to consolidating domestic political reforms.

> Title II dedicates a specific article on the International Criminal Court and calls on the cooperation of the EU and Ukraine in promoting peace and international justice by ratifying and implementing the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and its related instruments.

++++ Title III: Justice, Freedom and Security

Title III covers issues concerning the rule of law and respect for human rights; protection of personal data;

cooperation on migration, asylum and border management; treatment of workers; mobility of workers; movement of persons; money laundering and terrorism financing; cooperation on the fight against illicit drugs; the fight against crime and corruption; cooperation in fighting terrorism and legal cooperation.

> The EU and Ukraine commit through the Association Agreement to increase their dialogue and cooperation on migration, asylum and border management. The importance of the introduction of a visa free travel regime for the citizens of Ukraine in due course, provided that the conditions for well-managed and secure mobility are in place is recognised in the Agreement

> The commitment to combating organised crime and money laundering, to reducing the supply of and demand for illicit drugs and to stepping up cooperation in the fight against terrorism is also reflected in the Agreement.

> The wish to enhance people-to-people contacts is explicitly set out.

++++ Title IV: Trade and Trade-Related Matters
The EU is Ukraine’s main commercial partner and accounts for 31% of its external trade, ahead of Russia (2010).

Closer economic integration through the DCFTA will be a powerful stimulant to the country’s economic growth. As a core element of the Association Agreement, the DCFTA will create business opportunities in Ukraine and will promote real economic modernization and integration with the EU. Higher standards of products, better services to citizens, and above all Ukraine’s readiness to compete effectively in international markets should be the result of this process.

> Hence the DCFTA Title IV of the Association Agreement is dedicated to Trade and Trade Related Matters. Through a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area economic integration is envisaged.

> The DCFTA, linked to the broader process of legislative approximation will contribute to further economic integration with the European Union’s Internal Market. This includes the elimination of almost all tariffs and barriers in the area of trade in goods, the provision of services, and the flow of investments (especially in the energy sector). Once Ukraine has taken over the relevant EU acquis, the EU will grant market access for example in areas such as public procurement or industrial goods.

> The DCFTA will provide for a conducive new climate for economic relations between the EU and Ukraine. New

3 /5

trade and investment opportunities will be created and competition will be stimulated. All these elements are factors crucial to economic restructuring and modernisation. As regards the impact of a removal of customs duties entailed by the DCFTA, experience has shown that this short-term loss of import charges will be more than compensated for by the increased revenue received by the state from indirect taxes paid by companies seizing new market opportunities and by the general boost to the economy. The budget spending on legal and institutional reforms in trade-related areas is or will be supported by the EU along with funds from International Financial Institutions. The DCFTA once in force will provide tariff cuts which will allow the economic operators of both sides to save around 750 millions euros per year in average (most of the customs duties being lifted)

++++ Title V: Economic and sector cooperation

Title V comprises 28 chapters in the fields of energy cooperation; macro-economic cooperation; management of public finances; taxation; statistics; environment; transport; space; cooperation in science and technology; industrial and enterprise policy; mining and metals; financial services; company law, corporate governance, accounting and auditing; information society; audio-visual policy; tourism; agriculture and rural development; fisheries and maritime policy; Danube river; consumer protection; cooperation on employment, social policy and equal opportunities; public health; education, training and youth; culture, sport and physical activity; civil society, cross-border and regional cooperation; participation in European Agencies and Programmes, based on gradual approximation with the EU acquis and also – where relevant – with international norms and standards.

++++ Title VI: Financial cooperation, with anti-fraud provisions

The European Union and its Member States continue to be the largest donor to Ukraine: since 1991, assistance provided by the European Union alone has amounted to over €2.5 billion. The European Neighbourhood Policy Instrument (ENPI) allocates € 470 million to Ukraine for the years 2011-2013. This goes to support action in three priority areas: good governance and the rule of law; facilitating the entry into force of the Association Agreement, and sustainable development, including energy and environment. This amount includes funding under the Eastern Partnership for the Comprehensive Institution Building programme (€ 43.37 million). The latter is designed to improve the administrative capacity of partner countries and their compatibility with EU institutions, for instance through twinning programmes, professional training and secondment of personnel.

> Ukraine will benefit from EU Financial Assistance through existing funding mechanisms and instruments in order to achieve the objectives of the Association Agreement.

> The future priority areas of the EU Financial Assistance to Ukraine will be laid down in relevant indicative programmes reflecting agreed policy priorities between the EU and Ukraine. The indicative amounts of assistance will take into account Ukraine’s needs, sector capacities and progress with reforms.

> EU assistance will be implemented in close cooperation and coordination with other donor countries, donor organisations and International Financial Institutions (IFI), and in line with international principles of aid effectiveness. Through the Neighbourhood Investment Facility (NIF), to which Ukraine is eligible IFI investments could be leveraged. The NIF aims at mobilising additional funding to cover the investment needs of Ukraine for infrastructures in sectors such as transport, energy, the environment and social issues (e.g. construction of schools or hospitals).

> The Agreement lays down that the EU and Ukraine will take effective measures to prevent and fight fraud, corruption and any other illegal activities.

++++ Title VII: Institutional, general and final provisions

The Association Agreement foresees a tailor-made institutional set up for EU-Ukraine relations.

> At the top level, the EU-Ukraine Summit will be established: The Summit will present the highest level of political dialogue and will be a platform for meetings between Presidents.

> At ministerial level, the dialogue will be conducted within the Association Council which could meet in any configuration. The Association Council will have the power to take binding decisions.

> The Association Council will be assisted in the performance of its duties by an Association Committee. The Association Committee will create Subcommittees to implement sector cooperation. Meeting in a special format, the Association Committee will address the specific DCFTA issues.

> The Association Agreement also foresees a parliamentary dimension, notably by establishing a Parliamentary Association Committee. It will be a forum for Members of the European Parliament and the

4 /5

Parliament of Ukraine to meet and exchange views.

> Another important element of the Association Agreement is the promotion of regular civil society meetings. Hence, a dedicated Civil Society Platform will be established. The Platform will be able to make recommendations to the Association Council.

In order to ensure the correct implementation of the Association Agreement, the Agreement texts sets out some general and final provisions. A selection of these provisions is set out below:

> One key provision underpinning the Association Agreement sets out the concept of gradual approximation of Ukraine’s legislation to EU norms and standards. Specific timelines are set within which Ukraine should approximate its legislations to the relevant EU legislation. These timelines vary between 2 and 10 years after the entry into force of the Agreement.

> Another guiding provision sets out the concept of dynamic approximation. There was a need to set out this concept as the EU law and legislation is not static but under constant evolution. Thus the approximation process will be dynamic and should keep pace with the principal EU reforms, but in a proportionate way, taking account of Ukraine’s capacity to carry out the approximation.

> In order to examine whether the commitments as set out in the Association Agreement are met, dedicated provisions related to monitoring were included in the Agreement. Monitoring means here to supervise the application and implementation of the Association Agreement, its objectives and commitments. It is a continuous appraisal of progress in implementing and enforcing measures and commitments covered by the Association Agreement. This monitoring process will be of a particular importance for the DCFTA as its positive result will be the prerequisite of any further market opening for the Ukrainian economic operators

> Monitoring will include the assessments of approximation of Ukraine’s legislation to the EU acts (and where applicable international instruments) as defined in the Association Agreement.

> The Association Agreement also sets out a Dispute Settlement Mechanism. This mechanism would come into effect if obligations under the Association Agreement are not fulfilled by one of the Agreement Parties. For the DCFTA part, another binding trade specific Dispute Settlement Mechanism is set out in form of a dedicated protocol. This trade specific mechanism is inspired by traditional WTO dispute settlement mechanism.

> The duration of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement is unlimited. At the same time the Parties will undertake a comprehensive review of the achievement of objectives under the Agreement within five years. It should be noted that the text of the AA will be drawn up in 22 EU Member States languages as well as in Ukrainian.

What is the #Harper Delegation to #Ukraine hiding from #cdnpoli? #CPC #GPC #NDP #LPC

We would like to probe and issue that will most surely have dire consequences regarding the escalating situation in Ukraine. For this summary article we will purposely exclude the propaganda that is being repeated by virtually all of the msm outlets and conglomerates as they are readily available elsewhere and more than likely already embedded into your subconscious via the unrelenting narrative. Instead we will take this opportunity to explore the darker information that has been hidden in plain sight all along.

We believe that this seemingly purposeful commission is the most troubling aspect of the Regime’s delegation that is completely outta touch with reality as the history and run up to WW1 and WW2 has shown us, it only takes one useful idiot and some carefully crafted propaganda to spark a war of epic proportions and collapse the entire global economy as well as millions of lives that are lost, displaced and impoverished for generations. Typically politicians are usually self-serving dupes serving the interests of globalist investors that hide behind the scenes as advisers.

It is also worth noting that, as far as we are concerned, the entire Harper Party along with the Opposition Party’s and all of the msm conglomerates are either intentionally and/or conveniently following the narratives from “both” sides, ignoring and/or simply ignorant of the facts on the ground as well as history and/or willingly complicit and/or being truly opportunistic capitalists by purposely suggesting that this is a battle between the “democratic” EU and the “repressive” Kremlin in this violent uprising. More simply the msm keeps reporting this as a battle being waged by Putin’s Russia to prevent Ukraine’s “integration” into the EU. If so, the Right Sector that is controlling the ground in Ukraine is having none of that as they are against any integration into either side of the equation.

Below are 5 points to ponder and as you review the information below and keep in mind that the leader of the Right Sector was also fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan at the same time that Osama bin Laden’s Muhajahadeen, predecessors to the modern day al Qaeda, were fighting the Soviets. This would seem rather important considering the seemingly never-ending and long lasting implications that the multi-trillion dollar “War on Terror” has brought forth, not to mention the countless lives and casualties of innocent civilians caught in the chaos and destruction as well as the thousands upon thousands of affected Military personnel that thought they were fighting for our collective freedom.

  • Why is the Harper Regime playing partisan games with the Ukraine issues and what are they hiding besides the neo-nazi fascist Svoboda Party and the paramilitary Right Sector’s involvement?
  • Is this simply another attempt at pandering for votes like the 9 figure pilgrimage to Israel or is something more sinister at play?
  • Why is the focus of the msm being shifted to Crimea exclusively, with daytime images, propaganda and video being repeated, and away from the radically right-wing controlled Maidan in Kiev, with nighttime images and video being repeated?
  • Why is there such an absence of any reporting from any of the other regions in a rather large and diverse country?
  • Will these unseen events eventually lead to perpetual civil wars that will spill across all borders in all nations or simply be isolated with Ukraine?

Below are several interviews that should be read, re-read and shared to really understand some of the underlying powers structures now that the Ukraine vacuum has been created. Keep in mind that this is essentially the “militia” that now controls the security services for all intents and purposes…

Interview with Dmytro Yarosh, Leader of Right Sector

7 Feb 2014

YaroshUkrains’ka Pravda, 4 February 2014, 15:59

Dmytro Yarosh, Leader of Right Sector: When 80% of the Country Does Not Support the Regime, There Can’t be a Civil War

An Interview by Mustafa Nayyem and Oksana Kovalenko (Translated from Ukrainian by William Risch)

Dmytro Yarosh, leader of Right Sector, has been the least well-known figure over the past two months. Just two weeks ago, only a narrow circle of people involved with organizing the Euromaidan even knew about the very existence of the Sector and Yarosh. Today, it’s impossible not to describe events in Kyiv without mentioning Right Sector.

On January 19, after events on Hrushevskyi Street started, world media exploded with fiery scenes of young guys with Molotov cocktails and masks over their faces. Right Sector’s actions tore the term “peaceful protest” to pieces, but at the same time, Right Sector forced the regime to listen to the Maidan and repeal the January 16 laws.

The headquarters of this still informal group is on the fifth floor of the Trade Unions’ Building. Photography is forbidden in the hallway, numerous matresses are spread on the floor, next to which, besides wood and metal sticks, lay textbooks – most of Right Sector’s members are young guys of university age.

We met Dmytro Yarosh in one of the floor’s offices – two by three meters – where Right Sector press conferences usually take place. Here, too, is the fully-equipped office for the sector’s leader. Three guys with walkie-talkies, dressed in camouflage, with masks over their heads, man the office’s “reception room.”

THEY CALL ME A HAWK IN TRIDENT

What is your personal story, and what have you done with your life?

I am leader of the all-Ukrainian organization, Stepan Bandera Trident. I have been involved in public life for the past 25 years. I’m from Dniprodzerzhyns’k, in the Dnipropetrovs’k Oblast’ (Region). I raised the first blue-and-yellow flag in April 1989 in Dniprodzerzhyns’k.

I was one of the founders of the People’s Movement of Ukraine (Rukh). I was a member of the Ukrainian Helsinki Union; in 1989 I received recommendations (to join it) from Levko Luk’ianenko and Stepan Khmara in Moscow, on the Arbat, where we picketed then for the renewal of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church’s activities. Since 1994, as a founder of the Stepan Bandera Trident, I have had various positions in it: first as leader of Trident’s city structure, then as leader of its oblast’ structure, then its regional one, and so on.

I was commander of the organization from 1996 to 1999, then I was chief inspector of Trident, then I became commander of the organization again, then I passed on my duties as chief commander to my successor, Andriy Stempits’kyi. I’ve actually spent a lifetime in this. I have been trained as an instructor of Ukrainian language and literature, and in 2001, I finished the Drohobych Pedagogical University in the Philological Faculty.

How did Right Sector emerge?

There was a big protest in Kyiv on November 24-25 because of the decision to cancel the Eurointegration program. In general, Trident is not an active supporter of any integration processes, but we announced that we would create Right Sector as a platform for coordinating the actions of various revolutionary-oriented groups, because to a considerable degree, from the very beginning, we were perfectly aware that we couldn’t live in the system of state structures that has existed up to now.

Right Sector fully emerged after the events of November 30, when we went out to protest on Mykhailivs’kyi Square.

It was there that we started training and getting our defenses ready. Then we were at the Maidan all the time, and we entered the Maidan’s self-defense force. Other organizations that entered Right Sector were Trident, UNA-UNSO (Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian National Self Defense), and Carpathian Sich from the Subcarpathians.

Have you conducted training before?

Yes, for 20 years. We already have a lot of generations who have been changed by it. My kids were small at one time, and now my daughter is 20 years old, and she’s spent her whole life in Trident.

Trident is an organization with narrow operations, like an order of knights. We have three specific tasks: propagandizing the ideology of Ukrainian nationalism as interpreted by Stepan Bandera; raising up Ukrainian youth in a spirit of patriotism; and national defense activity, that is, defending the honor and dignity of the Ukrainian nation in all forms by all methods and means available.

In general, Ukrainian nationalism and Banderites are not narrow-minded plebs with sadistic tendencies; these are intellectuals, people who write, who publish, who are involved not just in using force. Trident is an organization that produces certain ideas.

We are not a political party. In Trident, we’re even forbidden from taking state jobs.

Serhiy Kvit, President of the Kyiv Mohyla Academy, is among Trident’s well-known members. He’s my good friend and comrade. At one time, he was a sotnyk in our organization. There’s also Petro Ivanyshyn, a doctor of philology, head of an academic department at the Drohobych Pedagogical University, who was also a sotnyk.

Where exactly do these training sessions take place?

At camps throughout Ukraine: Dnipropetrovs’k, Dniprodzerzhyns’k, Kryvyi Rih, Pavlohrad, Nikopol’ and so on. Guys get together, and they have their plan of activities for a month, for half a year, for a year. They go through training and lessons. They conduct various events aimed at the de-communization and decolonization of Ukraine.

I think you’ve heard about events from 2011, when our mobile group blew up the head of Stalin’s bust in Zaporizhzhia; that was a rather notorious thing.

We never made PR out of it. We simply do what is for our nation’s good, for our state’s good. Those of us who can do it close down drug dealerships and help law-enforcement organs (if you can call them that, because it seems to me that the police are the most active drug dealers).

Was what happened on January 19 on Hrushevs’kyi Street something planned in advance?

No, of course not. We were always on the front lines those two months. The dictatorship laws that were passed January 16 were the stimulous for these events. We couldn’t live under state rules like those. On January 19, Automaidan activists drove up, and they wanted to go to the Supreme Rada and picket it. Right Sector came up there in organized fashion when hundreds of people were already there.

We tried to talk with the police and get them to agree to let us through. They responded rather aggressively. And what happened next, you know – we committed active deeds, and our guys defended the people. And I think that what happened was very good, because if it hadn’t been for those events on the nineteenth, I don’t think the regime would have made concessions and negotiate with the opposition.

How many of your people are at the Maidan?

Around 1,500 people, along with a mobilization reserve from Kyiv. But right now, affiliates are emerging all over Ukraine. They are organizing on their own, they call themselves Right Sector, and we are working to coordinate their activities as much as possible.

How many people in general can you mobilize across the country?

I think that for now, we can already mobilize 4,000 – 5,000 people.

How do you finance your organization?

I am not involved in that issue, but it’s all financed by people. We even opened up bank cards, but they were blocked right away. And after January 19 – there’s just been a flood of help. We need everything, because we’ve been here for two months already. People bring packs of money. We keep a complete account, everything is transparent, and guys buy equipment with the money.

Tell us about your organization’s structure.

The structure will be completely finalized after these events. Right now, Right Sector is a completely orderly organization; it’s not at all an extremist one, or a radical one; in general, I don’t like the word “radical.” Right now there is a unit on the Maidan, there are units in the oblasts, and there are spontaneous groups that have emerged. We invite leaders, we talk with them, we look to see if these are decent people, and then we make decisions about them. Right now we have started coordinating our actions with those of Afghan War veterans, too. They haven’t officially entered Right Sector, but we now coordinate our activities with them completely, because I don’t bring guys together just like that.

How do you make decisions?

There are strategic decisions, there are emergency ones, and there are tactical ones. People themselves make them at all levels. Regarding strategic matters, we discuss this or that problem with a leadership group of up to 12 people, including me, and we make a decision. And all the commanders decide all the other things. For example, we have Iranian – he makes a decision in his group whether or not to send people to the barricades.

Iranian? Is he from Iran?

No, that’s just his pseudonym. All the guys have pseudonyms for obvious reasons, because we live in such a state system. For example, since 1994, I have had the code name Hawk (Iastrub) in Trident. And we have one Pylypach and one Letun. Everyone chooses his own name, just like in the Cossack Sich.

AFTER JANUARY 19, NOT A SINGLE OPPOSITION LEADER CAME UP TO SEE OUR GUYS

Do you coordinate your activities with opposition forces?

First of all, we have relations with Andriy Parubiy as Maidan commander and de-facto leader of Self Defense (Samooborona), which we formally belong to as the 23rd hundredth (sotnia), though we have over 1,500 people.

But if you talk about the entire opposition, for the most part, we have no relations with them at all. They don’t recognize our existence. It seems to me that this is a big mistake of the opposition, that they don’t consider the forces of the Afghan veterans, Right Sector, or even Self Defense.

It seems to me that even Andriy Parubiy doesn’t have such an easy time coordinating actions with the trio of opposition leaders. Because I see some of the remarks that they make there. Andriy says one thing, while the leaders say something slightly different.

For example, I’m surprised that after January 19, opposition leaders didn’t come upstairs and thank the guys. Approach people, talk with them. These are live people, and they’re good, too.

Yesterday, a television crew came by, and the cameraman said, “I was surprised. One guy was reading a textbook on materials’ resistance, while the other was fluent in English and was speaking with some foreigner. You have such great guys!”

Well, it’s true. They’re the flower of the nation. These are people who right now are sacrificing their lives and their freedom for the sake of the Fatherland. This is something else, but politicians close their eyes to it.

Though there was Vitaliy Klychko – I met with him twice, and we had absolutely normal conversations. However, the opposition often fulfills part of our demands, because they are perfectly aware of our presence, and they see that Right Sector is a certain factor to be reckoned with on the Maidan.

But didn’t you try to contact them for the sake of coordinating activities?

We had no direct contacts. I had the impression from the very start of the peaceful Maidan that they operated very much on impulse, not on a system of actions thought through. They didn’t even set up a unified headquarters. From the very beginning, we called for unity at the Maidan so that there would be no divisions between politicians, Civic Sector, and Right Sector. In all interviews I’ve had, I’ve stressed that the uprising must be unified, and that I don’t want to provoke responses from the opposition.

But everything has its limits. When the country faced a real threat of war, great distrust of opposition leaders surfaced on the Maidan. They just talked for two months. Even though they had been given a mandate – “Take it, decide things!” – they couldn’t do anything. On January 19, we went on the offensive, and they started doing something. Well, we’ll keep putting pressure on them.

As far as we understand, the Freedom (Svoboda) Party is closest to you in ideological views…

Yes. We have a lot of common positions when it comes to ideological questions, but there are big differences. For instance, I don’t understand certain racist things they share, I absolutely don’t accept them. A Belarusian died for Ukraine, and an Armenian from Dnipropetrovs’k died for Ukraine. They are much greater comrades of mine than any, sorry, Communist cattle like Symonenko, who play for Russia but are ethnic Ukrainians.

Stepan Bandera once advocated three ways of dealing with non-Ukrainians. It’s very simple. You deal with them as comrades – and this is for those who fight with you for Ukraine, regardless of their nationality. You deal with them in a tolerant way – for those who live on the land and do not oppose our struggle; thus, we treat them normally, Ukraine has a place for all. The third way of dealing with them is in a hostile way – and this is for those who oppose the Ukrainian people’s national liberation struggle. And this is in any state; any people takes exactly these positions.

Social nationalism is very complicated for me, because it is my belief that nationalism does not require anything extra; it is enough. Oleh (Tiahnybok – Ukrains’ka Pravda), too, has lately tried to go the way of traditional nationalism. Thank God. Although there isn’t much of a point talking about ideological discussions during a revolution. Finally, our guys stand at the barricades just like guys from Svoboda. This unites us.

People from the regime say that during negotiations, opposition leaders claimed that people were ready to leave administrative buildings if those arrested and prosecuted were released. Is this true?

I think the regime lied. I think that the opposition didn’t say any such thing. Before the amnesty law was voted on, we made clear our position, and it was like the same thing the opposition had said. That is, if the regime made a compromise and passed the law for a so-called amnesty drafted by the opposition, then Right Sector was ready to withdraw its fighters from Hrushevs’kyi Street and unblock the street. This would be a reasonable compromise.

This doesn’t cancel out our political demands. We must change the country at another level. The Maidan is only a Sich (a Cossack military and administrative center – WR), a training ground, but it’s not about constant fighting.

Your opponents would reply that you were the first ones to open fire and go on an all-out offensive…

No, no, no! Excuse me, Berkut special forces beat children on the Maidan on November 30, 2013. For two months, people stood at the Maidan and took no action. Then came the regime’s usual provocation – passing the laws of January 16. They started beating activists, kidnapping people. Look what they’ve done with the Automaidan.

They were the very ones who provoked this situation, and people went on the attack, because people couldn’t take it anymore. How much longer could you stand there and dance on the Maidan? We’re not sheep, Ukrainians must have some pride, and they showed that Ukrainians do have pride.

What do you think, why did Right Sector have to show up for this, why didn’t the opposition do it?

Because Right Sector is the Maidan’s most revolutionary structure. Let me emphasize: revolutionary, and not radical. Revolution is reason, a plan, action. When the people are in an uproar, you can’t avoid using this situation for the people’s own benefit. The opposition, unfortunately, is incapable of doing this, maybe because their seats in parliament are very soft and they can’t take decisive steps. We can take such a step.

Have you spoken with the opposition about this?

I’m telling you, we have no contact with them. I’ll stress it again – I am for unifying the opposition movement, the one involved in protests and in the general uprising. Thus, any explanation I give will wind up being used against me. They’ll start yelling that I’m a provocateur. If you want my honest opinion, I don’t care what they say about me. Our difference is that I’m not interested in political ratings.

Right now, representatives of opposition parties are taking part in negotiations with the regime. What do you think, can these people take responsibility for the Maidan’s actions and give some guarantees on its behalf?

That’s the problem; the Maidan doesn’t control the negotiations process. The levels of trust opposition leaders had at the beginning and now are completely different.

We demand that not only opposition leaders be in the negotiations, but also representatives from the Maidan. At least as observers. Then you can offer some guarantees and at least articulate here, to people on the Maidan, that we have this agreement reached between the regime and the opposition, and it should be carried out.

Because otherwise, there’s the impression that they agree on one thing, and then they change something among themselves, and then the result turns out to be completely different.

Our goal now is to force the opposition to go back to negotiations with specific demands and achieve a certain compromise. But this absolutely must happen with Maidan representatives.

Those Afghan veterans or Andriy Parubiy as self-defense commander can be in the negotiating group. If they invite me, I’ll go. We see nothing awful in this. We can argue our position and compel both the regime and the opposition to make an agreement, so that there will be no bloodshed, and so that the state will take different actions. I’m ready to go negotiate for this.

Let’s make this simpler. Imagine that you are in negotiations, and Viktor Yanukovych is sitting across from you. What arguments would you use to convince him to change his actions?

I would seek a compromise. I would put pressure on him, though I know he wouldn’t like that very much. I’m not sure that Yanukovych is getting reliable information. It seems to me that he has some inadequate understanding of the situation. For example, I think he doesn’t understand that 80% of the people right now do not trust the regime. I think that his advisors are giving him slightly different figures and are showing him different scenarios from the real ones.

First, I’d start out by saying that he can’t fight his own people. No one yet has defeated his own people. I would explain that those things that law enforcement are doing is a real war against Ukrainians. Second, and this is very important – I would try to explain to him that those thousands of self-defense forces that have already been formed will not give Berkut or riot police an easy time clearing the Maidan and pass through it in parade fashion.

They don’t understand that the Maidan is a phenomenon with its own army, with its own medical services, with its own structures, and that it’s already a certain state. And they won’t be able to take it over without shedding a lot of blood.

It’s already impossible to drive it away with clubs. They’ll have to use weapons, real ones, not like the ones they use on Hrushevs’kyi Street. And they’ll really get it from us, that I can guarantee Viktor Yanukovych.

All right, but what do you want? So you tell Viktor Fedorovych (Yanukvoych) that the situation is like this. What next?

A precondition for any negotiations must be the freeing of all those arrested. These people aren’t terrorists and they aren’t extremists. I think you even know some of those people. They are absolutely normal, decent people who got fed up. People should be freed. Any talk about normalizing the situation can only happen after this.

Second, the regime should stop using force. In the regions, above all. Stop kidnapping activists. This is terror against one’s own people.

They must immediately start investigating crimes that have taken place on the streets. Berkut special forces couldn’t have been shooting without the knowledge of the Minister of Internal Affairs. It’s a military structure; there has to be discipline there, a clear sense of subordination. If they were provocations, then we need to find out who was doing the shooting. Give people information, don’t be silent, don’t close your eyes to what has been going on.

Yanukovych indeed has fulfilled several of our demands regarding the government’s resignation and the repeal of the laws of January 16. But changing an existing office to another that has the prefix “v.o.” (“acting” – translator) doesn’t solve any problems.

We need to form a compromise government that could be made up of people who are not leaders of political parties, but professionals. Moreover, all those odious figures – all the Zakharchenkos, the Tabachnyks, and other politicians like them – should be replaced. This is the first step they would need to make, and it would remove the tensions immediately.

Who do you see heading the Cabinet of Ministers?

I can’t say, because I’m not an expert at forming governments. Politicians should talk about that.

But when you don’t have your own proposals, you take away all responsibility from yourself and remove yourself from political developments.

For 25 years, I’ve avoided public politics. That’s not a problem for me. Although now, we are looking into the possibility that, if there will be peace, Right Sector will grow into a political organization. All the guys have said this. For God’s sake! We can always get involved in politics. For me, they’re the flower of the nation, and they can’t be cannon fodder people use and then forget. But it’s still too early to talk about anything specific. Right Sector today can’t be narrowed down to some political matters.

But that’s exactly what it looks like right now – you’re being used: you’re standing at the barricades, while they offer government posts to Arseniy Iatseniuk and Vitaliy Klychko.

The fact is that the life of the state and the life of our people aren’t limited to a sole Cabinet of Ministers. Let them take those positions. If they invite us to help, we will. We’ll take over law enforcement, and we’ll bring order in the state. But I doubt that we’ll get even just one office.

WE WILL HAVE OUR OWN CANDIDATE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS

What will you propose to Viktor Yanukovych if the revolution is victorious?

It depends on him. Some time ago, we gave him 24 hours to leave the country, and no one would touch him. Today, if he made a smart decision, we could even grant him safety in his own state. Just so there would be no war, so there would be no bloodshed. Let him stay in Mezhyhir’ia, take care of his ostriches, and no one would bother him there. But that has to be his decision.

Do you see yourself in some office?

Right now, no. I have a really good office right now – I’m leader of Trident. It’s easier for me to speak in front of members in formation, not onstage.

But that’s not an office that can change the country. What would you do in a time of peace?

If you want peace, get ready for war. We started Right Sector, and Right Sector has changed the country a little. During peace, I would continue being involved in Trident. Like I’d been doing for the last twenty years.

You understand, Trident is not a structure that has an unequivocal goal of setting up some armed conflict. No. Any kind of normal state must have state paramilitary structures that prepare youth for service in the army, which gives it a chance to mobilize a certain personnel reserve for defending the people’s interest in times of foreign or domestic peril. It’s a normal thing in most civilized countries of the world. Trident will always be relevant. Even if we have the best president and the best government.

Do you have any information regarding who’s kidnapping people?

Unfortunately, we don’t. We are trying to dig this information up, but we’ve had no luck so far. We ask the regime to activate law enforcement, its Security Service (Security Service of Ukraine, or SBU – WR), so that all investigation teams are employed in this search. Finally, [the SBU] is not as compromised in all these events as the MVS (Ministry of Internal Affairs) is. But there’s been nothing so far.

So you sincerely trust regime structures to investigate this issue?

I’m not certain that the regime is guilty of these crimes. I don’t rule out foreign special services being responsible for this. For example, the FSB (Federal Security Service). Russia always makes use of instability in Ukraine. As soon as there is instability in Ukraine, they come over here and deal with certain issues they have. Putin has said more than once that Ukraine is not a state. And I am more than convinced that up to the present, there have been plans for splitting Ukraine up into two or three, or five, or six zones of influence.

But Right Sector and its activities have been called a destabilizing factor.

It seems to me that it’s the opposite – over the last few months Right Sector has shown that it is a stabilizing factor. If it hadn’t been for Right Sector, there wouldn’t have been any negotiations, radical moods would have increased, and they would have exploded in regions as partisan warfare. Why doesn’t anyone think about that?

As for now, the situation anyway is under control, and it it is now at some negotiating stage. If they don’t reach an agreement, the risk of partisan warfare in Ukraine will sharply increase. We know Ukrainians have a very glorious tradition of waging partisan warfare. They’ve fought for decades. Only will this be useful for the state?

But aren’t you afraid that a partisan war could grow into a civil war?

There can be no civil war. When 80% of the people do not support the regime, it will be a struggle between society, the people, and the regime. And these two things make great differences between a civil war and what we are talking about. This will be a national liberation war. But we’d rather not have one. We have a state, we have a foundation for developing nation building and state building.

But a lot of people in eastern Ukraine sincerely believe that Banderites and nationalists are gathered here, and they are really convinced that they must fight this. What should we do with these people?

According to the information I have, this is a very small percentage of people. I myself am from the Dnipropetrovs’k Oblast’, and I completely understand the situation. These are mostly people working for hire. You saw the events near the Dnipropetrovs’k Oblast’ Administration building. There, local (Party of) Regions deputy Stupak for a year and a half got scumbags together and formed fight clubs and guard structures that, together with the police, out of “conviction” defend the Oblast’ Administration.

Did you see at least one normal citizen among those defenders of the administration building who went out there voluntarily? Or in the Crimea itself, they’ve set up units of hatted Cossacks, chauvinists, who form Black Hundreds and defend the regime. But where are the masses of people? Besides that, Crimean Tatars are completely on the side of the Euromaidan. So none of this is simple.

If you’d speak with people in the East, they’d say the same thing about the Maidan: that there is a very small percentage of sincere supporters, and that the majority are hired nationalists. Both you and they have very similar rhetoric, which in the end is very unlikely to produce a compromise.

Let’s consider some examples. The Party of Regions tried to set up an Anti-Maidan by bringing in people from all over Ukraine. Who actually has been standing there? It’s either really asocial elements or state employees and recipients of state aid who simply were forced to come. I spoke with a whole bunch of such people, and when I yelled out, “Get out, crook!” (Zeka het’!), they waved and laughed. It’s a myth that there’s some social support for Yanukovych and his regime.

The soccer ultras all over Ukraine, the ones who supported the Maidan, are clear examples of this. These are people with real ideas, from Luhans’k Zoria, Simferopil’ Tavriia, Zaporizhzhia Metalurh, Dnipropetrovs’k Dnipro, Kharkiv Metalist, and so on. How many times did Dopa and Hepa (Mykhailo Dobkin, governor of the Kharkiv Oblast’, and Hennadiy Kernes, mayor of Kharkiv – WR) try to gather those hired thugs and send them here to Kyiv, and they haven’t been able to do it. What support can you talk about? This idea about a split in the country is a big lie. There is no split. Yanukovych, bless his heart, united the country.

All the time there’s been this call made at the Maidan to the three opposition leaders to make a decision on a single candidate. Do you support this call?

It doesn’t seem that relevant because you more often hear calls to make decisions with Maidan leaders. The leaders of the resistance which is going on. The importance of presidential elections for people has gone down to second or third place.

During presidential elections – early or regularly scheduled ones – what will be your strategy: will you support someone, or will you run on your own?

We don’t rule out Right Sector nominating its own candidate for elections. But it’s still too early to talk about this.

So you sincerely believe that a candidate from Right Sector has a chance at winning across the country?

If you took at reality, there is always a chance for it. Right Sector became an all-Ukrainian phenomenon in a few weeks. It’s Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovs’k, Donets’k, the Crimea. On the other hand, presidential elections can bring quite a bit of attention to our ideas of revolutionary changes for the state.

Aren’t you afraid that your electoral campaign could divide up the opposition’s electorate and lead to you being blamed for causing a split?

Listen, let this process finish, and then we’ll see what’s going on and how things are going. Fairy tales about fragmenting one’s forces, which they tell each other, is some kind of child’s play. They all know that they’re running as three separate candidates, thus breaking up forces from the very beginning.

Either you sit down and make a real agreement and fulfill what you’d agreed to do, or each should play his own game. For us, at this stage, it’s not that important to take part in presidential elections. We need peace.

The fact is that there are people who talk a lot and do little, while there are people who act and demonstrate with their sweat and blood that they can change things, that they can act, that they can achieve a result.

Right Sector is a platform for guys who have demonstrated their ability to change something, to sacrifice the gifts they have received to achieve something higher. Politicians in recent years have not demonstrated this. I don’t see them having demonstrated this kind of sacrifice, the desire and the ability to sacrifice.

So who for you is the leader of the resistance?

There is no one for now. I made an announcement that I was ready to bear responsibility for all those things that happened. This doesn’t mean that I have some presidential ambitions. I simply see that there needs to be complete coordination and control over the situation. Let politicians settle those issues for themselves. If one of them is ready to do it, then let him do it, and we will sincerely support him. But I don’t see anyone doing this.

RIGHT SECTOR DOESN’T FIGHT WITH FAMILIES

Are you aware of the fact that if you are defeated, or even if there is a compromise between the regime and the opposition, a jail cell might be waiting for you?

Yes, of course. I’ve been ready for it for the past 25 years. What can you do? That’s life. I go there but for the grace of God. What will be, will be. If there will be a criminal case, then there will be a criminal case. I am ready to fight for Ukraine. Let them try to put me in jail. Finally, we’ve yet to see who will imprison whom.

Have you been given a police summons?

No. I live here, what do I need a summons for? They don’t deliver them to the Maidan, and guys don’t let cops enter the fifth floor.

But something could happen before you’re even arrested. You could face the fate of Ihor Lutsenko or Dmytro Bulatov…

I know in whose name I’m waging this struggle. Of course, I don’t want that, I’m a living human being, and I have the instinct of self-preservation. But guys are protecting me, they go around with me, and they wear armored flak jackets.

Do you go outside the Maidan in general?

I’m rarely outside it. I won’t tell you where I go.

What is happening with your family right now?

I last saw my family for Christmas. They’re in Ukraine, but I’ve temporarily changed their residence. The fact is that all information about our addresses has been posted on the Internet, and about our families, so there is a certain danger.

But there’s also the very same information on the Internet about Berkut forces, for instance. Can you give guarantees to all law enforcement and regime officials that nothing threatens their families?

I can guarantee that Right Sector in no way will touch any child, or any family, of any law enforcement personnel, from any structure. Right Sector doesn’t fight women and children. We are not beasts from Berkut who beat up journalists and medical personnel. So you don’t have to worry – no one will be taking any actions like those. I can vouch for Right Sector.

But you still set an ultimatum… you have this demand for the Fourth (of February): either you release everyone, or there will be… Can you say what this is about? Why exactly the Fourth?

The Fourth of February is the next session of parliament. We demand that the Supreme Rada produce a document announcing the unconditional and complete freeing and rehabilitation of people arrested. And this is no amnesty, because there were no crimes committed.

We also demand the regime end any use of force – this would be kidnappings, burning cars, and so on. I think that they will listen to us. I am 90 percent certain that they will listen to us.

Otherwise, we are on the edge of a bloody conflict. I don’t rule out that people who are standing on the Maidan will conduct a very serious mobilization and go to the government offices district. And they will take it – and I am more than convinced of this – though it will be with blood, with great losses. Because we’ve been left with a pathological situation. Then all of them will be taken out: both the regime guards and Yanukovych. That’s why it’s better for them to reach an agreement with us.

Do you understand that even what you just said now can be used against you?

Yes, of course. It’s a revolution. There are two sides of the barricades – it’s a basic fact. Right now everything is being used either against us or against them.

Do you select in some way people who come to you? Do they go through some selection process?

Without a doubt. We are signing up volunteers all the time, especially during some active campaigns. Regarding criteria, you need to talk directly to the commanders. They work with people. I know exactly that they don’t take in people who are under age. Because they run in packs at age 15-16.

Do you issue people weapons (that is, ones that are not firearms)?

They show up on their own with either some baseball bats or with some sticks. We don’t equip them with them. As for the money that we get from people, we use that to buy all kinds of little shields, helmets, shields, a very big arsenal of all that stuff. They get all the necessary equipment, and then they have lessons with them.

If a person is in poor physical health, then he or she gets other work – in the kitchen, in the medical station, and so on. Our girls are great, simply great; they’ve done so much good already. They even took away the wounded during fighting, and they help us here all the time.

Regarding firearms, you called on people to bring them to the Maidan. Why have you done that?

When the MVS issued an order allowing use of firearms against people, I called on people who had legally registered firearms to join us, to create a group for supporting us with firearms in case they came to the Maidan and started shooting. I think that you can only return fire, because there are no other alternatives. But that’s only if they open fire first.

Has this unit been created?

That’s a secret, sorry.

Who has all the information that is now at Right Sector? There is a person who knows everything.

No one knows everything. The political leadership has the information.

How do you coordinate your actions? It’s not a secret that all telephone conversations are listened in on, how do you do it?

Regarding messengers and go-betweens, all the guys have walkie-talkies, but they also monitor them, and we know that. I get the impression that they have listening devices installed in all the buildings around us. Operational vehicles are in place and so on. By the way, I don’t regard guys sitting in them as enemies or something like that. They’re doing their job, and they have to do it.

Moreover, I am more than convinced that in law enforcement structures, attitudes toward the regime, the opposition, and the Maidan are very, very ambiguous. Some of them hate us, but that’s a small percentage. Others are sympathetic toward us, because we also have been conducting certain negotiations with law enforcement personnel. Guys come to us and talk. The regime is falling apart. You just need to put enough pressure on it so that they take those political steps.

There are two barricades on Hrushevs’kyi Street. Do you talk at all with Berkut forces? Do you bring them warm tea or coffee? I know that there used to be such initiatives.

I don’t know if we bring them right now. Earlier, when they blocked us in at the Maidan itself, we gave them food. I was against this, not because these cops, these guys, are not friends. They’re also Ukrainians, they simply are on the other side of the barricades. They serve the enemy. But it’s not worth doing. The more they are driven crazy by not getting enough food and so on, the less chances there are that they will go on the offensive and on the attack, and begin beating people like they’ve done several times. Thus, out of purely pragmatic reasons, I don’t think that we should bring them sandwiches or coffee.

Exclusive: Leader of Far-Right Ukrainian Militant Group Talks Revolution With TIME

Simon Shuster / Kiev @shustry
Feb. 4, 2014

Dmitro Yarosh, the leader of Pravy Sektor, a coalition of ultra-nationalist groups in Ukraine, stands with some of his fighters at the scene of the worst clashes last month between the group's fighters and police in Kiev.
Dmitro Yarosh, the leader of Pravy Sektor, a coalition of ultra-nationalist groups in Ukraine, stands with some of his fighters at the scene of the worst clashes last month between the group’s fighters and police in Kiev. Maxim Dondyuk

In his first interview with foreign media, Dmitro Yarosh, leader of the far-right militant group Pravy Sektor, says he and his antigovernment cohorts in Kiev are ready for armed struggle

Take the smell of an army barracks, add a bit of char and gasoline, and you’d have a rough idea of the air on the fifth floor of the House of Trade Unions, the headquarters of the revolution in Ukraine. When protesters first occupied the building in December, their leaders divvied up its floors among the political parties and activists involved in the revolt. Since then, the only floor off-limits to journalists has been the fifth, which houses the militant arm of the revolution, Pravy Sektor (Right Sector), the coalition of right-wing radicals that grew out of the uprising. They had good reason to avoid publicity. After their violent clashes with police last month, their members could face years in prison if the ruling government survives the revolt.

But on Sunday night, their leader Dmitro Yarosh agreed to give his first interview to a foreign media outlet. It was not so much an act of vanity as a political coming-out. He has clearly grown tired of being the movement’s anonymous enforcer. In recent days, as a negotiated end to the crisis has started coming into view, the need for a military wing of the revolution has diminished. And so has the trust in its upper ranks. The mainstream opposition leaders, like the former world boxing champion Vitali Klitschko, have faced growing pressure to distance themselves from Pravy Sektor, which the U.S. State Department has condemned for “inflaming conditions on the streets.” Increasingly marginalized, the group has grown much more assertive and, in some ways, has started going rogue.

In his interview with TIME, Yarosh, whose militant brand of nationalism rejects all foreign influence over Ukrainian affairs, revealed for the first time that Pravy Sektor has amassed a lethal arsenal of weapons. He declined to say exactly how many guns they have. “It is enough,” he says, “to defend all of Ukraine from the internal occupiers” — by which he means the ruling government — and to carry on the revolution if negotiations with that government break down.

But so far, those negotiations have been making significant strides toward resolving the crisis. On Tuesday, the parliament began debating a sweeping reform of the constitution, while allies of President Viktor Yanukovych suggested for the first time that he is ready to consider early elections. Both moves would mark a major breakthrough. But Yarosh, watching from the sidelines, has begun to doubt whether the negotiators have the interests of his men at heart. “This whole peaceful song and dance, the standing around, the negotiations, none of it has brought real change.” Dozens of his men, he says, remain behind bars after their street battles against police two weeks ago.

With that in mind, Yarosh and another militant faction began a parallel set of negotiations over the weekend. On Monday, they claimed to be in direct talks with Ukraine’s police forces to secure the release of jailed protesters, including members of Pravy Sektor. Mainstream opposition leaders said they had not authorized any such talks. At the same time, Yarosh has demanded a seat at the negotiating table with the President. Once again, he was flatly denied. His ideology, it seems, is just too toxic to let him in the room.

But neither can Klitschko and his fellow politicians easily sever their ties with Pravy Sektor. The group serves some of the uprising’s most essential functions. Its fighters control the barricades around the protest camp in the center of Ukraine’s capital, and when riot police have tried to tear it down, they have been on the front lines beating them back with clubs, rocks, Molotov cocktails and even a few catapults, in the mold of siege engines of the Middle Ages. Around the country, its fighters have helped seize government headquarters in more than a dozen cities. “Pravy Sektor has proved its loyalty to the ideals of freedom,” Yarosh says. “Now we needed to present this movement as a source of leadership.”

In any kind of fair election, that would be nearly impossible. Pravy Sektor’s ideology borders on fascism, and it enjoys support only from Ukraine’s most hard-line nationalists, a group too small to secure them a place in parliament. But taking part in the democratic process is not part of Yarosh’s strategy. “We are not politicians,” he says in his office, a pack of Lucky Strikes and a walkie-talkie on the table in front of him, while a sentry in a black ski mask and bulletproof vest stands by the door. “We are soldiers of the national revolution.” His entire adult life has been spent waiting for such a revolution to “steer the country in a new direction, one that would make it truly strong, not dependent on either the West or the East.”

Through all his years in the nationalist movement, Yarosh, a 42-year-old father of three, says he has never had any form of occupation apart from his activism. The son of two factory workers, he was born and raised in a provincial town in eastern Ukraine, and became involved in the nationalist underground in the late 1980s, just as the Soviet Union was disintegrating. Nearly all of the satellite states of the USSR, from the Baltics to Central Asia, were then pushing to break away from Moscow’s control, and in 1988, Yarosh joined one of the more radical groups fighting for an independent Ukraine.

The following autumn, months after the Soviet Union pulled its troops out of Afghanistan, Yarosh was drafted into the Red Army, a common form of punishment for political activists at the time. He was stationed briefly in Belarus before being transferred to Siberia, where he served as a guard at strategic missile sites. The Soviet doctrines of unity between Russia and Ukraine did little to soften his views. “If anything, the army made me more convinced that my path is correct,” he says. When Ukraine declared independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, Yarosh went on hunger strike to demand a transfer to the newly established Ukrainian army. His commanding officers ignored him.

In 1994, a few years after he was discharged and returned to Ukraine, he joined a right-wing organization called Trizub (Trident), and slowly climbed its ranks before assuming leadership in 2005. Along with several other far-right groups, Trizub formed the core of Pravy Sektor when the current uprising broke out in Ukraine two months ago. Its main adversary has always been Russia, although it also has little patience for Western influence on Ukraine. “For all the years of Ukraine’s independence, Russia has pursued a systematic, targeted policy of subjugation toward Ukraine,” Yarosh says. “So of course we will prepare for a conflict with them,” he adds, especially after Russia’s recent invasion of another one of its former satellites, Georgia. “If they stick their faces here like they did in Georgia in 2008, they’ll get it in the teeth.”

So far, his jabs at the leaders of the opposition in Ukraine have not been quite as pointed. He has accused them of vanity and ineffectiveness, but he has also observed the truce they called a week and a half ago to allow their negotiations to proceed. “Not a single Molotov cocktail has gone flying since then,” he says proudly. “A truce is a truce. They want to negotiate, let them negotiate.” But as Yarosh realizes, he and his men have staked a great deal on the outcome of these talks.

If the ruling government holds on to power, Pravy Sektor could be forced to take the blame for the violence that left dozens of police officers in the hospital two weeks ago. “All those criminal charges are already waiting in the prosecutor’s office,” he says. On the other hand, if the opposition forms a new government, they are not likely to carve out a place for Yarosh and his men in the halls of power. So it is no surprise that he has begun to show some political initiative.

For the past two decades, he has been waiting and preparing for the start of the “national revolution,” and now that he finds himself at the head of its armed division, he does not seem ready to let it pass peacefully away, at least not on anyone else’s terms. “People have gotten in touch with us from around the country, saying, ‘Guys, don’t let us down. Take us to victory, to independence, if the other leaders are incapable of that,’” Yarosh says. “So if the time has come for an active struggle, I am ready to carry it to the end. I am not afraid of that responsibility. I see no reason to hide my face.”

Dmitry Yarosh, the Man Who Claims Victory in the Ukrainian Revolution, Speaks

By / March 12, 2014 4:33 PM EDT

3.12_Ukraine
A leader of a once obscure right wing group is now at the center of a geopolitical standoff between Russia and the United States David Mdzinarishvili/Reuters

Newsweek spoke with Dmirtry Yarosh, 42, a leader of the once obscure right wing group that is now at the  center of a geopolitical standoff between Russia and the United States

Q: Is it true that you have been training Right Sector forces for over 20 years?

A: I was training paramilitary troops for almost 25 years. Although we just came out of the revolution, my guys are continuing military training all across Ukraine, ready to cleanse the country of the occupiers.

Q: How many are you?

A: I cannot give you the exact number, as our structure and divisions are constantly growing all over Ukraine, but over 10,000 people for sure. We have certain preconditions for our recruits: patriotism and other criteria for proper behavior.

Q: Are you aware that a Moscow court is trying you for calling for terrorist actions against Russia?

A: That is Putin’s idea. He is a political corpse.

Q: Do you have many war veterans in your ranks? Are your forces a part of Ukraine’s army?

A: As soon as Russia declared the war we recruited retired officers, generals of the interior ministry and security agencies. We are coordinating our actions with the council of the National Security and Defense, as well as with the army’s General Headquarters. We are currently negotiating to put our forces on a proper legal footing.

Q: If the Crimea population decides to become a part of Russia at the referendum on Saturday, what will be Right Sector’s reaction?

A: Right Sector, together with all other Ukrainian citizens, are ready to defend Ukraine’s territorial integrity by all possible means. In case the Kremlin decides to attack us, they will have a major partisan war on  Ukraine territory.

Q: Do you think Ukraine has enough forces to defend itself?

A: I am realistic about the pitiful conditions of our military forces, including Right Sector. Our army is many hundreds of times weaker than Russia’s army so it’s important for Ukraine to do everything to resolve the crisis through negotiations.

Q: Why do you call your organization paramilitary? are you armed just with Kalashnikov’s or do you also have more serious weapons?

A: As in any army, we have specialists trained to shoot S-300 missiles. In case of a partisan war, there  will be shooting from every house.

Q: Do you realize that the majority of Russians including cultural and intellectual leaders support Putin’s actions in Crimea because they see you as a leader of a fascist, radical movement? Are you ready to become the reason for the end of years of Russian-Ukrainian friendship?

A: Unfortunately, Russia is largely brainwashed. Ukrainian nationalists have nothing to do with fascism. The powerful Russian propaganda machine knows what it’s doing. The beliefs of Right Sector are against chauvinism. We base our views on nationalist ideas. The proof is that 40 per cent of our members speak Russian; Jews and other nationals feel comfortable in our forces.

Q: What then makes your movement “Right”?

A: We believe Ukraine deserves to have its own national state. That is what makes our movement “Right.”

Q: Was your book “Nation and Revolution” — where you defined your movement’s enemies as the Russian Federation and the Russian Orthodox Church — a prediction of “the liberating war” of the Ukrainian nation?

A: The book is a collection of my articles that was criticized when it first came out. But now we see that it predicted many events that have now happened. I would advise Russian citizens to start their struggle against Putin’s fascist regime. That would be the best guarantee of friendship between Russian and the Ukrainian people. So long as Putin is in power, Russian imperialism will always be putting improper pressure upon Ukraine.

Q: Why do you refer to the Russian president, who enjoys high popularity ratings, as a “fascist”?

A: Putin built up his power by fascistic methods. He ignored the constitutional rights of Russian citizens. In Russia, police beat up those taking part in mass protests in Moscow and St. Petersburg. That smells of fascist methods to me. They arrest protesters carrying anti-war signs. That is fascism.

Q: It is broadly believed in Ukraine that the revolution would not have happened without Right Sector. What kind of revolution was it?

A: We had a nationalist revolution to create a state where Ukrainian people would be the master of their own destiny in their own land. Until now, we have had an occupying regime. We’ll do everything to give our people full freedom, justice and a share of the nation’s wealth.

Q: Your men are all over the center of Kiev. Why do you and your men wear black uniforms?

A: This is not an official uniform. We bought uniforms sold to security guards. I have taken professional advice about strengthening our security. We have been given information that some Russian forces are interested in kidnapping, arresting or liquidating me.

Q: Who  is it that is shooting on the Maidan every night?

A: That is not my people. My men never use their weapons unless there is a specific need.

Q: You are running for president. What special attributes do you have that qualify you to be a politician? Do you think you have a chance to win the presidential election?

A: I graduated from university, specializing in Ukrainian language and literature. I never intended to be a politician. But since January 19 this year, I have been responsible for all the events. We have seen two miracles happen already: politicians have not betrayed the revolutionary spirit of the Maidan; and we won the revolution. I expect one more miracle  to take place at the presidential election.

Q: Did your movement support Chechen insurgencies in Russia?

A: We supported the first Chechen war against Russian empire. We sent a delegation to Chechnya. We helped treat the Chechen wounded here. And we publish Chechen books.

Q: Did you really call for Islamic insurgencies to support Ukraine in the war against Russia? Did any of your men meet with the Chechen insurgency leader Doku Umarov?

A: I didn’t say that. I am not sure. When we were helping Chechnia, Doku Umarov was just an ordinary field commander. We are not supporters of the Islamist war against defenseless women and children.

Q: Yesterday, Ukraine’s former president Victor Yanukovych said the new leadership is going to raise Bandera flag that is considered fascist in Russia.  Is that true?

A:  We stood under red and black flags throughout the revolution. Red Ukrainian blood spilled on the black Ukrainian earth –  that flag is the symbol of the national revolution. I am convinced that this flag will bring us freedom.

Q: Who finances you? Do you think the West is going to support Ukraine?

A: As a matter of principle l do not take money from oligarchs as we do not want to be dependent. We received some US dollars from the Ukrainian Diaspora. Otherwise the entire country supports the Right Sector.

I am sure that if Russians bombed Kiev — and we believe there is 50/50 chance that will happen — NATO will not come to fight for Ukraine. Europe has betrayed Ukraine many times. We are not counting on them. We can only count on our own forces and our ingenuity.

In Ukraine, New Government Must Reassure Jewish Community

Abraham H. Foxman
National Director, Anti-Defamation League
Posted: 02/28/2014 2:35 pm EST Updated: 02/28/2014 2:59 pm EST

The Ukrainian Jewish community is nervous. The ultra-nationalist Svoboda party, with its history of anti-Semitism and platform of ethnic nationalism, won more than 10 percent of the vote in October 2012, shared the political leadership of the Maidan revolution over the past months, and just this week received three ministries in the new Ukrainian government.

While Svoboda’s leaders have refrained recently from making anti-Semitic statements, it is troubling that Oleksandr Sych, Svoboda’s chief ideologue, was named vice prime minister. Sych’s speeches over the years have focused on promoting Ukrainian nationalism, which he says is exemplified by Stepan Bandera, a leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement of the 1930s and 1940s. Bandera was at times aligned with the Nazis during World War II and was complicit in mass killings of Jews and Poles by Ukrainian partisans.

Sych has also said that Ukrainian nationalism is threatened both by “the Communist Russian regime and liberal Europe.” How ironic that he was brought to power by a revolution sparked by former President Viktor Yanukovych’s sudden refusal to sign an association agreement with the European Union.

Interestingly, the armed nationalist groups that fought on the Maidan against government troops and police have made important gestures toward the Jewish community this week.

Dmitro Yarosh, leader of Right Sector, met with Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine, Reuven Din El, and told him that their movement rejects anti-Semitism and xenophobia and will not tolerate it. He said their goals were a democratic Ukraine, transparent government, ending corruption, and equal opportunity for all ethnic groups.

The day before, Ukrainian Jewish journalist Eleonora Groisman interviewed Sergei Mischenko, the leader of “Spilna Sprava,” and told him that Ukraine’s Jews were worried about the nationalists. Mischenko responded that Jews will not have any problems and shouldn’t worry. He went on to say, “On the Maidan there were Jews with us who served in the Israeli Defense Forces. We got along excellently and fought shoulder to shoulder.”

In November 2013, not long before the anti-Yanukovych protests began, ADL honored Metropolitan Archbishop Andrei Sheptytsky, a spiritual leader of Ukrainian Catholics who headed the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church from 1900 until his death in 1944. Metropolitan Sheptytsky was posthumously awarded ADL’s Jan Karski Courage to Care Award for his undaunted heroism in saving Jews from the Holocaust.

After lauding Metropolitan Sheptytsky’s actions, I said:

I want to make one last point, regarding the situation today in Ukraine. There is a strong and growing Ukrainian nationalist movement. It faces a choice of role models: the Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera, who declared an independent Ukrainian state on June 30, 1941 in Lviv, when the Nazis drove out the Soviet army, and the next day began murdering Jews. Or it can be inspired by the Ukrainian nationalist Metropolitan Andrei Sheptytsky, who wrote on July 1, the day after the state was declared, that the new government should exercise – quote — “wise, just leadership and measures that would take into consideration the needs and welfare of all citizens who inhabit our land, without regard to what faith, nationality, or social stratum they belong.” The Ukrainian nationalism of Andrei Sheptytsky, one of compassion, even love, for his Jewish neighbors, is one that Jews around the world can embrace and support. And we ask all who are inspired by the Metropolitan’s actions and words to help oppose the destructive Banderite strain.

Will Vice Prime Minister Sych renounce Bandera and embrace Europe? Will Svoboda accept Jews as full-fledged Ukrainians and follow the welcome assurances of the armed nationalists? Or will the promises of Right Sector and Spilna Sprava be overtaken by the ethnic nationalism of Svoboda?

Meanwhile, security is being upgraded at Jewish institutions. Over the past several weeks, two Jews in Kiev were violently attacked and Molotov cocktails were thrown at a synagogue in Zaporozhe. Some Jewish leaders have even raised the possibility of a mass exodus from Ukraine.

The future of the Ukrainian Jewish community could depend on the choices made by Svoboda and the actions of Ukraine’s democratic leaders.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, together with UDAR leader Vitaliy Klichko, brought Svoboda into the opposition coalition in 2012. Now, having brought Svoboda into the government, it is up to Prime Minister Yatsenyuk to ensure that anti-Semitism is not tolerated and that democratic norms are adhered to. By sending that message to the people of Ukraine now, the prime minister will reassure the Jewish community and set an admirable example.

Guiding Ukraine’s nationalists to adopt the path of Metropolitan Sheptytsky will be a major test of Ukraine’s democratic development and an important step forward for the country. If achieved, the future of Ukraine’s Jewish community may be bright, not bleak.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/abraham-h-foxman/in-ukraine-new-government_b_4875833.html


It is also worth noting that after exploring the various groups/boards/sites it seems that Svoboda element has been overlooked and not mentioned much in the msm because they, along with the “modern” NeoNazi factions while still being fervently anti-Semetic and anti minority, have seemingly allied and self identified themselves with the “modern” far-right Zionist, NeoCon and Wahhabi/Salafist factions as they admire their ultra Nationalistic ideologies and violent strategies…


Ukraine: “Right Sector” Leader Dmitry Yarosh Meets with Israeli Ambassador, Pledges Allegiance to the Jewish Race

February 28, 2014

"We exist only to serve you, oh Chosen Ones, oh Masters of Earth." -Pravy Sektor leader Dmitry Yarosh to the Jews

“We exist only to serve you, oh Chosen Ones, oh Masters of Earth.” -Pravy Sektor leader Dmitry Yarosh to the Jews

From the beginning of the Ukrainian revolution late last year, I have taken a staunchly pro-Russian, anti-coup position.  Throughout the course of events, it has become more and more undeniable that the entire situation was one created and managed by subversive Jews, for the purpose of weakening Russia by tricking the Ukraine into joining the European Union.

However, many nationalist activists remained supportive of the revolution, promoting it on the internet as a positive thing, even after it was discovered that Vitali Klitschko, the most prominent leader of Maidan, is a Jew, that the American Jew Victoria Nuland was playing a role in planning the operation, and that IDF agents were responsible for managing much of the terrorism against the elected government of the Ukraine.

The average age of the revolutionary footsoldiers of Pravy Sektor is about 17. I would never blame these boys for not knowing any better.

The average age of the revolutionary footsoldiers of Pravy Sektor is about 17. I would never blame these boys for not knowing any better, as they likely did not have access to the information we have had access to.

Though it was discouraging to me to see so many who consider themselves supportive of the nationalist cause voicing their support for this Jewish power-grab, I understood that people were excited to see nationalist symbols among the protestors, and thus made the decision to indulge in a fantasy about a “National Socialist Revolution” in the Ukraine.

This week, that fantasy can be seen clearly for what it is, as Dmitro Yarosh, the leader of Pravy Sektor (Right Sector) has met with the Israeli ambassador to the Ukraine, Reuven Din El, and pledged his allegiance to the Jewish race.

He said their goals were a democratic Ukraine, transparent government, ending corruption, and equal opportunity for all ethnic groups.

Abe closes with this:

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, together with UDAR leader Vitaliy Klichko, brought Svoboda into the opposition coalition in 2012. Now, having brought Svoboda into the government, it is up to Prime Minister Yatsenyuk to ensure that anti-Semitism is not tolerated and that democratic norms are adhered to.

Guiding Ukraine’s nationalists to adopt the path of Metropolitan Sheptytsky will be a major test of Ukraine’s democratic development and an important step forward for the country. If achieved, the future of Ukraine’s Jewish community may be bright, not bleak.

The Israeli embassy in the Ukraine released a press statement on the meeting:

February 26, 2014 the Ambassador of Israel to Ukraine, Reuven Din El, met with the leadership of the “Right sector” movement, including its figurehead, Dmitry Yarosh.

The leaders of the movement informed the Ambassador about their position on the future of Ukraine, and stressed that they follow a tolerant policy on national issues.

Dmitry Yarosh also stressed that all hateful rhetoric, especially anti-Semitism, was not only condemned by “the Right Sector,” but that they would continue to fight it through all legitimate legal means. The aim of the movement is to build a democratic Ukraine, establish government transparency, combat corruption and provide equal opportunities for all nations and peoples; they intend to unify the people and build a state ruled by the people.

The parties agreed to establish a hotline to prevent provocations and coordination issues that arise.

The leaders of the movement stressed that any manifestation of chauvinism and xenophobia would be punished.

So there you have it.  It turns out I was in fact more correct than even I had understood, having previously allowed that the leaders of Pravy Sektor could have themselves been confused.  Well, when you meet with Israelis and pledge to defend the Jews and punish anyone who dares question them, you aren’t confused – you are a shill.

Though it is possible that the boys out fighting on the streets will stand up and oppose their leaders pledging their lives to the defense of the Jewish people, I see it as highly unlikely.  No, this is all going to go exactly how the Jews planned it – the Ukraine will enter the EU, take on massive debt, and eventually be totally destroyed.

What We Can Learn

Hopefully, after the debacle of reckless support being irresponsibly thrown behind this Jewish operation by various sectors of the activist community, no doubt ending with a lot of people feeling very foolish, we can learn something for the future.

The most obvious thing to note here is that it is not only possible, but highly probable, that a group wearing nationalist symbols is being managed by Jews.  They understand that the most effective way to neutralize the opposition is to become the opposition.  As such, when a group claiming to be nationalist is engaging in behaviors which are inconsistent with the symbols they wear, their actions should be considered more relevant than what they are wearing.

When the actions conflict with the t-shirts, you have a duty to judge the actions over the t-shirts.

Remember this: When the actions conflict with the t-shirts, you have a duty to judge the actions over the t-shirts.

The bottom line is that serious opposition will not endorse Jewish revolution, in the way that both Svoboda and Pravy Sektor did when they refused to question the Jews who were managing the revolution.  We should also note that when you see Jews openly endorsing an allegedly nationalist organization, as they did with the alleged nationalists in the Ukraine, you should assume that they know something that you don’t know.

Thankfully, the fact that so many in the internet activist scene supported this Jewish coup did not have any effect on its outcome.  The Jews would have won here whether or not you supported them, or condemned them as I did.  However, it will not be long before your support does matter, and if you decide to support an openly Jewish-driven revolution, the consequences will be dire.

If we truly wish to stand in opposition to the Jewish parasite, we must be wise as serpents, and not fall into the traps they lay.

Meet the (real) new authorities in the Ukraine, example #1
Published on Feb 25, 2014

Forget Klitchko, Iatseniuk, Tiagnibok or Tymoshenko. Though they all have some degree of popular support, what they don’t have is power. The real authorities in the Ukraine is the so-called “Right Sector”, their leader, Dmytro Yarosh, and his brownshirts. This video shows the reaction of one of these gentlemen, a certain Alexander Muzychka aka “Sashko Bilyi”, a veteran of the war against Russia in Chechnia, addressing a meeting the administration of the Roven region in the northeast of the Ukraine. Mr Muzychka, upon being informed that the new (official) authorities in Kiev have decided to collect unregistered weapons, addressed the meeting with the following words:

Who of you wants to take my assault-rifle away?
Who of you wants to take my pistol?
Who wants to take away my pistol, my assault-rifle or my knives?
If somebody wants to take them, let him come near and try!

Needless to say, none of the politicians in the room said a single word.

This is the new regime in the Ukraine. And this is not going to change any time soon. The Ukrainian military is a joke and exists only on paper. The Ukrainian police has almost totally vanished and the only force which now has a monopoly on violence are the neo-Nazis.

The US and EU can really be proud of themselves. This is indeed a stunning success for “democracy”.

Ok, at some point the topic needs a perspective that will never be spoken of nor seen by the vast majority. This is the point of our exploration into this ugly situation that is unfolding and hidden in plain sight. Surely the source, content and details will be offensive to most but please consider reviewing the following few comments courtesy the white supremacists at Stormfront message boards. Be sure to inform your elected politicos on all 3 sides, especially the Regime loyalists, that we know more than they do and sooner or later they will be brought to account considering the Right Sector does not intend to allow EU integration either…

Sorry friends, but sometimes we need to look directly into their eyes to see what lies within their minds in order to fully understand their ultimate intentions…

The Ukraine riots should be called the 2nd Jewish war on Ukraine
The 2nd Jewish war on Ukraine

I wrote an article for discussion on the blatantly Jewish origins of these riots in Ukraine. It is self-evident, it cannot be denied, Russia has even stated that it was caused by ‘international’ influences, it is quite literally the 2nd Jewish War on Ukraine!

Quote:
The majority of protests occurred after the Ukrainian government refused to ratify or participate in the discussion of legislation from November the 21st 2013, that would have moved Ukraine into further trade deals and political union with the collapsing European Union… As outlined in an article the day the trade deal between the EU and Ukraine was de-facto rejected: The Jewish ‘community’ or kabal in Ukraine was staunchly in favour of joining the EU in order to subject the Ukrainian people to another phased Holodomor…Jewish supremacists in Ukraine, including the various unofficial chief Rabbi’s of Ukraine called for Ukraine to enter the EU, this call was not adhered to and subsequently many Jewish-supremacists inside Ukraine and through the United states took it upon themselves to instigate, fund and organise mass-riots and demonstrations against the pro-Ukrainian independent President and government of Ukraine…

Quote:
Like Syria this conflict has been instigated by foreigners allegedly by 100% percent, primarily as a result of subversion organised by Jewish-activists, Jewish front-groups and Jewish political figures on an international level

Read the full article…

If anyone has anything else that they believe needs to be said on the riots, just state such, I might edit the article with more information as time goes on, or write another one, if there is enough of a demand for more coverage.

The 2nd Jewish war on Ukraine

(UPDATED -1800hrs- 23/1/2014)


In-between 10,000-40,000 anti-government protestors, demonstrators and rioters led by Jewish protest leaders and organizer’s have led continual protests in Kiev through Wednesday night and today especially that have caused the confirmed death of in-between 2* and 5 Ukrainian people and has left thousands injured and with hundreds of serious injuries including severe burns and fractured bones many thousands of protestors have been hurt, who following the vile orders of often-times Jewish organizers have led these nieve protestors into violent confrontations with riot police and military drafted riot police.

Dozens of state police have also been critically or seriously burned and injured, with over 80 police officers having been hospitalized and over 200 injured and millions of pounds equivalent has been lost in the loss of national productivity, property damage and the enormous policing costs primarily in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev. The majority of the rioting occured and is still occuring (albeit at lower concentrations) around Maidan square and Europe square in Kiev.

*The two confirmed deaths were as a result of bullet wounds, the Kiev police issued a statement that they were not carrying any metal bullet (as opposed to rubber bullet) ammunition. The opposition leaders are now split as to whether violence is the way forward, with some calling for more violent protests, Jewish opposition leaders such as Vitali Klitschko (not even a Ukrainian, but is a Jew from Kyrgyztan) was calling instead for a nation-wide general strike.

Like Syria this conflict has been instigated by foreigners allegedly by 100% percent, primarily as a result of subversion organised by Jewish-activists, Jewish front-groups and Jewish political figures on an international level

Why are there protests in Ukraine?

The majority of protests occurred after the Ukrainian government refused to ratify or participate in the discussion of legislation from November the 21st 2013, that would have moved Ukraine into further trade deals and political union with the collapsing European Union.

As I outlined in an article the day the trade deal between the EU and Ukraine was de-facto rejected: The Jewish ‘community’ or kabal in Ukraine was staunchly in favour of joining the EU in order to subject the Ukrainian people to another phased Holodomor.

Although this might sound like an outlandish statement to make, the EU, through the free movement of people, coupled with the Jewish ambition for the EU to accept Turkey as an EU member state would, undeniably and inevitably result in the comparative demographic genocide of the Ukrainian and all European people if it were to continue unabated.

Jewish supremacists in Ukraine, including the various unofficial chief Rabbi’s of Ukraine called for Ukraine to enter the EU, this call was not adhered to and subsequently many Jewish-supremacists inside Ukraine and through the United states took it upon themselves to instigate, fund and organise mass-riots and demonstrations against the pro-Ukrainian independent President and government of Ukraine.

The protests had also been occurring before the rejection of the EU trade deals, this was primarily once again as a result of Jewish-supremacist instigation as Ukraine was moving towards further alliances and trade deals with Russia. There is a culture of anti-Russian sentiment inside Ukraine from the general population, as many Ukrainians still remember and lived through the end years of the collapse of the Soviet Union and thus some have been fooled into thinking alliances and trade deals with Russia would be a return to the Soviet Union days.


This is the opposite of the truth (and thus it is no surprise that we find Jewish supremacists promoting the opposite of the truth), as “The EU is the new Communism” (in this video Farage also promises Racial nationalist’s unstoppable return to power that even he cannot stop) and it is being increasingly acknowledged as such in Western Europe.

The Ukrainian government has already accused the EU and American efforts of attempting to subvert Ukraine. It is evident that the protests in Ukraine started literally minutes after EU integration talks ceased.

This fact alone proves that there is an epidemic of systematic anti-Ukrainian (and ultimately anti-white, as shown via the above argument) motivation behind the organizers of the recent protests, which have taken advantage of nieve and uninformed protestors and has, as all Jewish-supremacist revolutions or attempted revolutions do, resulted in the death of numerous Europeans already as of the time of publication of this article.

The fact that the Ukrainian public do not widely speak English has made it harder for them to be made aware of the horrific nature of the EU as revealed in our cultural discussions and in France, Scandinavia and Greece.

This has subsequently made it easier for Jewish-supremacists to play both sides of the political debate in Ukraine, stirring up fears of Russia (and Putin) by using anti-Russian and then anti-Soviet arguments at the same time, in front of different audiences, to create widespread anti-government sentiment over numerous sides of the political spectrum and debate within Ukraine. Although the silent majority (the small middle class and educated folk especially) of Ukrainians are still in support of Ukrainian independence from the EU, but as in all Jewish-supremacist revolutions or cultural upheaval attempts, the silent majority are always sidelined, for the interests of Jews themselves.

The Ukrainian anti-government protestors need to realize they are mistakenly on the side of communism, Jewish-supremacists and Globalist forces by demonstrating against their own freedom as a sovereign nation. Ukrainians need to wake up to the sheer idiocy of protesting against their own freedom, in the name of ‘freedom to be in the EU’.

This predicament of small proportions of Ukraine fighting against their own interests whilst thinking they are standing up for them, is akin to all the Jewish-supremacist manipulations, such as arguing for diversity which means less diversity (white genocide and multi-cultural nothingness) or arguing for equality, which actually means less equality (with more money going to Jewish bankers and the gab between the rich Jewish bankers and everyone else increasing until serfdom).

The anti-Ukrainian government protests and the recent ‘ultimatum’ for new elections is akin to the US pressure exerted on Russia, after Putin’s 1st successful re-election last election cycle, where democratic legitimacy means nothing to do with democratic legitimacy but whether that democratic government fully supports the Jewish-supremacist geo-political objectives or not.

The anti-Ukrainian protests are thus an attempt, to try to deny Russia a key geo-political, economic and military ally in Ukraine, in a wider, well-established anti-white effort to surround, isolate and attempt to destroy Russia on behalf of Jewish financial and racial interests who still hate the Russian people (as European people) for their defiance and destruction of communism in the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.

Some intelligent and well-informed Ukrainians have instead protested and surrounded the US embassy in Kiev, against the US (via Jewish-supremacists based in the US administration through figure-heads such as Kerry, McCain and Schumer*) subversion in Ukraine.

Several Nationalists in Ukraine have also used the protests as sufficient cover in order to engage in protesting at Jews and Jewish Synagogues, having correctly identified the cause of the current anti-Ukrainian disturbances. Some Nationalists have also taken part in demonstrations albeit for entirely different reasons. There are numerous pictures of well-equiped nationalists taking part in the riot in very small numbers.


The symbol on the shield there is quite evidently an Odin rune, the symbol of the Nordic and Germanic God Odin, the religion of our ancestors is popular throughout nationalist circles even in non-Northern European nations such as Ukraine and Russia and such persons as expected are on the frontlines, using the protest as cover for their own operations and to satiate their anger at the Ukrainian regime for its anti-protest laws and rampant corruption from Christian and Jewish political leaders. (Right) Look closely, that is a German Flecktarn jacket, popular with nationalists, and I can bet only nationalists are as well prepared and armoured as that person there.

The semi-nationalist and anti-interventionist policies of Vladimir Putin, is another reason why Ukraine is being pressured, via internal subversion to move away from Russia, because Russia (and China) are the only major powers who pose a colossal threat to Jewish-supremacist globalist ambitions.

These Jewish ‘opposition leaders’ (much like the foreign backed opposition leaders of Syria*) have made the ludicrous assertion that President Viktor Yanukovych has to call early elections within 24 hours from today (23/1/2014) or face massive protests.

*The same divide and rule (through internal subversion and the creation of factions) tactic resulting in the creation of “provisional” or opposition leaders or factions in countries opposed to Jewish-supremacist geo-political and racial objectives is blatantly clear.

Although it seems that many political factions are attempting to seize the moment, created by Jewish-international subversion, ironically even nationalists, as the above picture demonstrates are seeking to make an impact in their own way. It is likely that the Jewish international media may use pictures such as this to attempt to blame the whole protest on Nationalists, when it is a well-established fact that in previous Ukrianian riots it is Jewish thugs (or often-times Christian) and Jewish communists who are always the violent criminals in such events, nationalists are out on patrol to prevent the Jewish thugs from completely controlling the direction and messages of the protests, this is evident from the protestors denounciation of the so-called opposition leader of Yatsenyuk and others.

“You, Mr. President, have the opportunity to resolve this issue. Early elections will change the situation without bloodshed and we will do everything to achieve that,”

One of many opposition leaders, Arseniy Yatsenyuk in front of 40,000 people, whom he turned up to claim to represent.

The allegedly racially Jewish and evidently pro-Jewish opposition leader (one of many) Yatsenyuk has openly sought to escalate the violence and urge nieve Ukrainians to literally kill themselves in the face of Ukrainian police for Jewish interests by stating that:

“tomorrow we will go forward together* And if it’s a bullet in the forehead, then it’s a bullet in the forehead, but in an honest, fair and brave way”

*”Forward together” being an age old Jewish-communist phrase, but it will not be Jewish-subversives taking bullets to the forehead but European Ukrainians who will be killed for the sake of these Jewish-subversives and pro-EU (pro-white genocide) subversives like Yatsenyuk.


The Russian state Duma has also issued a unanimous statement warning western powers from continuing their incitement of the Ukrainian crisis, although in reality these Western powers, are almost entirely Jewish-supremacists, and their Communist and Socialist slave-followers in the EU commission.

‘On aggravation of the situation in Ukraine’

“In essence, there are attempts to forcefully overthrow the legitimate power institutes in the country… It is regrettable that all these events are provoked and used by representatives of the political opposition who cynically call themselves supporters of democracy… The State Duma again warns that the external pressure on Ukraine and artificially imposing the geopolitical choice of EU association are unacceptable,”

-Russian MPs of the Duma, by unanimous declaration.

The Duma, also ‘expressed readiness to boost the cooperation with the Ukrainian parliament – the Vekhovna Rada – in order to further develop the partnership between nations’ -according to RT.

This statement in this context, could be an indication of Russian willingness to intervene in Ukraine if the protests reach any serious military proportions, in what is obviously a Russian declaration of intent to stand by the true interests of Ukraine and its elected democracy.

It is reported that Military-grade Armoured Personnel Carriers are now on several streets of Ukraine with further mobilization inevitable, in what is evidently an increase in the response to the violent Jewish-supremacist-instigated protests.

*When looking someone up on Wikipedia go straight to the ‘Early life and education’ section and that will allow you to see whether someone is publically Jewish or not in a few seconds, subsequently this normally tells you all you need to know about their ideology, racial interests and motivations.

The Ukrainian people should remember the Holodomor and the majority-Jewish perpetrators who designed, created and then staffed the Soviet government responsible for the genocide of over 7 million Ukrainians in the 1930s and realise that allegedly the very same ethnic culprits who were behind the Holodomor are rallying against their nation once again, turning neighbour against neighbour, friend against friend, in a war that only benefits and can only benefit Jewish interests through what would be the destruction of Ukraine under the EU and the further attempts to isolate Russia.

Jewish-Supremacists have declared that Ukraine should be forced along with their agenda, to its own destruction long-term or be reduced to civil-war in the short-term, this is what malign Jewish-subversion looks like in reality in the videos below, behind the facade of media control and PR, this day the smell of burning flesh and ruined lives fills the air of our nations.”

Keep positive, Keep practical, Keep persevering.

A Sunday sermon by Rev. Mikhaylo Arsenych delivered in 2010:

“Today we are really ready for a revolution.
Would the fighters of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army tolerate Tabachnik and Yanukovych today?
The only effective methods of combat are assassination and terror!
The right way to communicate with the enemies is to fire at them!
Our message to them is the message of death by hanging. We’ll send all communists to the gallows-tree in our forest!
The message is our cry for vengence — take your weapon and chase all fear!
It is not a good time to be afraid!
We have been waiting for 20 years!
The situation will get better only if each of us makes a contribution to the construction of our national state.
We must first knock down the old house, and then build the new one.
We must rebuild our political regime and create a new sovereign state.
Only then will we live in our own country – in a country that takes care of our needs.
We want to be masters in our own house and decide for ourselves.
We want to be sure that our children will go to Ukrainian school.
We want to be sure that no Chinese, Negro, Jew or Muscovite will try to come and grab our land tomorrow!
Our success depends on each of us. We shouldn’t waver, we must keep covered todays political regime. The ground will be burning under their feet, like our torches are burning today!
Our hand must be firm! Glory to the Ukraine!”

While we choose to not post additional links, there are literally dozens upon dozens of rather graphic and gruesome videos and hundreds of self-fulfilling articles posted by the militants themselves that have not been shown nor discussed via the msm conglomerates. We suggest that everyone begin to question everything you see and hear from the various politicians, analysts, think tanks and their profiteering propaganda outlets.

Keep in mind that while we hope we are incorrect, just like the “War on Terror” they are all selling the illusion of spreading peace, prosperity and democracy.

Before jumping to conclusions or on any bandwagons and remember that the People of Ukraine may not be aware of what lies ahead and what lies ahead will not be good considering it has all been based on lies and deception by modern day snake-oil salesman.

  • restoration of constitutional order in the country, the impossibility of constructing totalitarianism and dictatorship and a return to the Constitution of Ukraine, as amended and supplemented, amended in 2004, which was unconstitutionally and illegally canceled.

Beat, cut, kill

“Titushki” as an element of political struggle in Ukraine

Caught activists "Evromaydana" "titushki"

Ukraine continues “parade Maidan.” Opposition capture authorities in the regions occupied by buildings in the center of Kiev and close police. Against this background, the hired gunmen of the number of athletes, or “titushki” – tried and tested means of power to fight opponents – sidelined. They are still used in eastern Ukraine, where protesters are trying to assert themselves. In general, however, the radicals of the opposition demonstrated that they can act much larger scale.

Even before the current “revolution” local authorities warned that the craze “titushkami” may leave her side – street fighters can use and its opponents. “In the end, too active use titushek lead to the fact that they are either out of control or … take your side, – wrote the local press last summer. – In fact, the guys are used to working without ideals and fantasies for conditional two hryvnia per day. And let the two become two thousand or twenty – it does not matter. It is important that there are people who are using the same titushek one day get rid of the expensive Yanukovych [Yanukovych] because “he frankly got” … “.

The publication, which appeared last summer, it was suggested that the organization of such a scenario may take oligarchs. A few months later in Kiev began “Evromaydan” under the banner of European integration and the change of power in the country (according to one version , the protest campaign was supported by just the local representatives of big business). Soon radical groups were already in the city center street battles and stormed government buildings in the regions.

These people – some now call them “rebels” – began to start a “revolution” as a major driving force. Formally, they opposed the “titushkam” positioning itself as patriots and fighters against “gangster regime.” In fact, however, even the opposition leaders do not always distinguish them from one another.

“We sandals for Yanukovych …”

High protest activity in Ukraine provided the demand for tough guys hired as power and its opponents. With their help, as noted by “Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine” , politicians face a number of problems:

• provocation (attack on political rivals rally or meeting their own colleagues – in the latter case provocateurs provided with the appropriate symbols, so they portrayed representatives competing political forces);
• protection of the rally (protection against the above-mentioned agents provocateurs);
• maintaining discipline among the protesters (follow that they, for example, not drinking alcohol and wandered around the city);
• Support the election (on duty far away from the sites, and if need be, for example, “recapture protocols from rival candidate”).

Phones “professional fighters”, as contended edition, have each organizer rallies.Designated recruitment – sports clubs, law enforcement and fitness institutions.

If desired, type “titushek” can be even without a special relationship. Last summer it showed journalists are “1 +1”, who came to Kiev Central Station and tried to hire a couple of people there of the number of migrant workers – ostensibly to scare the person refuses to repay the debt. Wishing to find easily. One of those who spoke with reporters, expressed readiness to take and for more serious work. “What should I do? Beat, cut, kill? “- He asked briskly. Journalist Publishing “Prestupnosti.NET”, in turn,has witnessed how the station collected the homeless. Recruiter, who admitted that he represents the ruling Party of Regions, said: “we sandals for Yanukovych.” When asked, he explained that “sandals” means “to beat.”

Dial “titushek” can also email. In addition, according to the magazine “Focus” , and customers work directly with the owners of sports clubs, and those already collected fighters. From the customer organization engaged people who are usually associated with sports media, and sometimes themselves control sports clubs – which naturally makes it easier.

As the “News” in Ukraine in general has a large number of private sports clubs receiving funding from politicians and businessmen, and they can optionally use athletes for their own purposes. “Some of these clubs are not licensed, are located in the basements of houses and there due to the fact that the management section gives paw chief housing department and a policeman – says metropolitan boxing coach, who wished to remain anonymous. – They have the same essence. Although athletes do not even know about. Their coach just puts a fait accompli. Like, you need to go back and then do such. Sometimes guys get paid for it. And sometimes – not. ”

The amount of payment varies. On average, it is a few hundred hryvnia per day.According to the data of the Ukrainian opposition at the end of November last year, for the provocation in the capital at the beginning of “Evromaydane” power dialing “titushek” for 200-500 hryvnia (from 800 to 2000 rubles) per day. Additional costs include the cost of masks, respirators (during street clashes in Kiev used tear gas), shields to protect the hands and feet during fights and fighters of transportation around the city. If we consider equipment and transportation, it is preparing a “titushki” estimated “economic truth” , will cost about a hundred euros.

In December, the opposition evaluated by “titushek” in Kiev, about ten thousand people. The former police chief of Kiev, and is now a member of the opposition of the “Fatherland” Vitaly Yarema, according to “Radio Liberty” , claimed that the police engaged in their recruitment. The objectives of the hired fighters, according Yarema, included attacks on protesters and provoke clashes with police officers. Some relation to the “athletes”, as reported in “Economic truth”, and attributed to people from the inner circle of President Viktor Yanukovych.However, documentary evidence of these rumors, as emphasized edition, was not.

At most of the opposition on the experience of using athletes also had rallies. Visitor sports club near Kiev told me that his friends in different times and were hired to guard the rallies of the ruling Party of Regions, and the opposition party “BLOW”.As for the opposition Nationalist “Freedom” (which, along with the “hits” supported “Evromaydan”), they, according to the magazine “Focus” do without mercenaries, preferring to rely on “ideological fighters.” Party, as the newspaper notes, has a fighter wing – the organization “Sich”, and also enjoys the support of football fans. After the “Evromaydana” series fan associations openly spoke on her side.

“Let them, the boys, their own!”

Object of special interest, street fighters in Ukraine began last spring, after a scandalous brawl in the center of Kiev and attacks on journalists. Actually, it was after this incident the word “titushki” and rooted in the Ukrainian lexicon.

May 18 opposition gathered his supporters at a rally in the capital. The same day, the party in power in Kiev organized their own “anti-fascist” rally, where participants denounced the party “Freedom”, and along with other opposition. Several dozen young people present at the event, separated from the main group and came to blows with the nationalists.

From the “athletes” hit and journalists who were nearby – employee “5 channel” Snitsarchuk Olga and her husband, photographer of the newspaper “Kommersant-Ukraine” Vlad Sodel. According to the journalist, the people in tracksuits, noting that they are being filmed, knocked her to the ground and started beating him. Donated and her husband, who was trying to protect her. Police officers at this time, the victim told how, just watched the scene.

When the scene is still fighters arrived “Berkut”, “athletes” hid in a nearby park. One of them tried to hold, but he said: “Let them, boys, your” – and was released. Later there was a photo in which participants brawl peacefully communicate with fighters “Berkut”. Authorities with involvement in organizing fights denied.

One “athlete” journalists soon found in social networks. It appeared to be a resident of White Church, a member of the sports club “Budo” (the club, as it turned out, is on the territory of the local police department) Vadim “Romanians” Titushko. Among the participants of the fight was seen and the man looks like a leader of the local branch of the “Young regions” Vasily Boyko – however, the involvement of the latter in a collision in Kiev was not confirmed .

Titushko himself later recorded a video message in which he admitted that, as an athlete earns “on just such meetings.” However, he said that in this case, was allegedly hired by the opposition – to protect its rally for 250 hryvnia. Beating journalist young man vehemently denied, but later agreed to go to the world and recognized that “let journalistic activity.” The court sentenced him to a suspended sentence.

Unofficially participants of the fight suspected of involvement and other scandalous stories: attempts raider capture Kiev home teacher Nina Moskalenko, conflict around St. Vladimir Church in Kirovograd region and even attack on the car Aunt Julia Timoshenko (which two young men punctured tires).

On the other hand, one of the participants in the May incident later noticed at the congress of the opposition of the “Fatherland”, where he played the role of guardian.”The end customer – is not only the Party of Regions, – admitted , commenting on this topic, one of the “colleagues” Titushko. – This “BLOW” and “Fatherland.” Watch the video demonstrations with the regionals, and then – with rallies of opposition parties, except that the “Liberty.” And you’ll see the same people – us. All the boys who took part in the fight that Saturday, and once worked for the opposition. ”

As for the Titushko Vadim, he quickly became known throughout Ukraine. His name (or rather, last name) has become synonymous. In summer it ironic interpretation appeared in the online dictionary of modern Ukrainian language, and later wound up and the corresponding article in the Ukrainian “Wikipedia” . The authors identified “titushek” as “the collective name of semi-criminal elements, Gopnik and the unemployed, are used by the authorities to prevent the activities of opposition activists.” Apparently, it is assumed that if these subjects are on the side of the opposition against the government, the “titushkami” they are no longer considered.

Lawyer Titushko Oksana Skoda way, threatened to stop the speculation around his name. “Now coming to the finish paperwork, then we will be able to prosecute the media or the people’s deputies for the mention of the word” titushki “,” – said she was at the end of last year. For “colleagues” Titushko is naming, however, is not the worst option: in the ruling party, as claims opposition activist Eugene Karas them, for example, is called “carp.”

“We – as titushki only good …”

By the end of last year the word “titushki” Ukraine has become a part of everyday life.The reason for this was enough. So, at the end of November, a group of people in tracksuits defeated local maidan in Dnepropetrovsk. Five activists in this case, were reportedly beaten to unconsciousness. For a while, according to “Left Bank” , watched the representative of the city council and the police appeared on the scene only after the attackers fled.

“Athletes” attracted to the protection of the city council, whose work in August, tried to block the opposition (to the questions of the journalist, who was going to talk to them, they respond refused ). Then, however, he eventually had to flee. “With dozens of” titushek “skedaddle vengeance towards the Maidan – described the incident“regional committee” . – They were chased by a crowd of angry opposition. One of Gopnik ran shouted, “Peck ******** [run]!” Who fled from “titushek” Pekoy was, and remains a mystery. But followed the advice of all the “colleagues” shouting. ”

Observers note that both sides of the political opposition gradually radicalized. Border as the image of “titushki” while gradually erased. During “Evromaydana” when began the attack on the police, it was difficult to make out who was behind it – whether planted the very same authority “titushki” (to give the authorities an excuse for a major “cleaning” – which it should be noted, in fact and did not use), or radically-minded opposition.

This fully manifested December 1, when the clashes near the presidential administration. Opposition almost immediately said that it was a provocation arranged “titushkami.” Support the opposition tycoon Poroshenko even wrote a statement to the police. However, in the press pretty quickly emerged evidence that in the storming of Representatives “right sector” – a radical nationalist wing “Evromaydana” (among other things, a bulldozer that was used in the assault, was previously seen in opposition disposal). Themselves nationalists did not conceal his involvement in the events of December 1 (for the version of one of the leaders of the association Igor Zagrebelniy, “there were some activists”), and even offended when they were called “provocateurs.”

“My friends and I went to the Mikhailovsky Square to protect the protesters from the police – told the publication “Facts” party collision named Sergei. – Guide the actions carried out “Right sector” … December 1 fee was announced at the crossroads and Instytutska Bankovoj as was information that planned blocking of the presidential administration. Sturm was not originally planned. ” According to him, the crowd began to warm up a few “healthy men with blue and yellow bandanas”, which provoked a fight. Member collision admitted that he at one point was even sorry policemen who “tightened under the blows of stones and chains and offered no resistance” – “but then won the belief that at this moment it is not people, and ministering to the current regime.”

The young man also said that before a woman adopted him and his associates for “titushek.” In response, she explained: “We – as titushki just … good.”

In “Right sector” for information “Vesti”, includes such organizations as “Patriot of Ukraine”, “Trident after Stepan Bandera”, “White Hammer” and UNA-UNSO.Nationalists did not deny his involvement in the events on the street in the center of Kiev Hrushevskoho where in late January, violent clashes broke out with the police, and they are involved in takeovers of regional administrations.

In a situation with “titushkami” – pro-government mercenaries – in the capital already there was a fracture. Their work has become much more dangerous: the authorities will now confront people without much hesitation to use force, in addition to the protection of the police, “athletes” can no longer be relied upon – the police and myself-that can barely defend. As a result, in Kiev the opposition announced on “titushek” hunt, or, as she gleefully wrote sympathetic local media – “safari” (this, according to the opposition, preceded by an attempt of the authorities to use a group of provocateurs pogroms in the city center). Activists toured the city, caught suspicious young people and was taken to the headquarters of the opposition. There they were interrogated at the camera – some confessed that they were hired for the money.Before release, some left on his forehead inscription “servant” or “Tituha.”

Some government support “titushki” still provide in the east, where now – after the West – trying to consolidate the “revolutionaries”. On Sunday “titushki” as reported , along with the “Berkut” disperse opposition supporters who had gathered at the regional administration building in Kiev. A day earlier, a group of people in tracksuitsattacked by members of the opposition marches in Kharkov.

In opposition, meanwhile, already discernible signs of a civil war. In conditions when the power is happening can not affect the parties – for example, “Berkut” radicals and opposition – lose containment centers. And now the “Berkut” mocks caught the opposition, stripping him naked. A crowd of “revolutionaries”, besieged the house with several hundred security forces, talks about how to burn them all. “War does not start when the positional battles go – says Vadim Gorshenin Institute President Omelchenko – and when a soldier begins to avenge fallen comrade on the principle of “an eye for an eye. ‘”

Even if a civil war will not come, and the “revolution” is complete overthrow of authority to deal with the consequences of conflict have long. This experience demonstrated the post-revolutionary Kyrgyzstan, where after the coup in 2010, there were several unsuccessful rebellions, and in ethnic clashes killed hundreds of people.If someone uses the crowd to solve their own problems, it is only a matter of time when the same will the opposite side. In this case the components of a crowd of people to call – “titushki” or otherwise – is not important.
