The Ukrainian journalist and author Oles Buzina has been murdered in Kiev.  He is the latest person to die in a long list of murdered and otherwise “suicided” people in the Nazi-occupied Ukraine.

Most of you probably don’t know Buzina and, if that is the case, I highly recommend that you watch is fascinating interview about the history of the Ukraine which I posted here:

I have to tell you that I am particularly shocked, outraged and distressed by this murder.  Buzina was a controversial figure and I did not share a lot of his views.  But one thing Buzina was absolutely beyond doubt: he was 100% Ukrainian.  He loved his country, his people, the complex culture and history of this long-suffering land.  Buzina was also fearless.  Not only did he not emigrate to Russia (like the vast majority of Ukrainian anti-Nazis), he took no security measures at all, he spoke his opinion completely openly and publicly and he never minced his words about the sorry clique of Nazi freaks which took over his country.

Those who murdered Buzina murdered a Ukrainian symbol.  They did so deliberately.  Make no mistake, this was not a russophobic act – this was a ukrainophobic act, the attempt to silence a uniquely Ukrainian voice.

My disgust with the ugly freaks in power knows no limits today.
