In the history of civilization, Politics has more often than not, been a matter reduceable to the question of “whose side are you on?”
Granted it is not an easy affair to discern what most-nearly approaches truth in the fog of “the present.” Hindsight is 20/20 they say, although that is also not entirely true, for the interpretation of history is just another battlefield, albeit in much slower motion.
In a world of increased division, where we are told there is only black or white, the best we mere “civilians” can hope for is to not get hit by the crossfire. However, that is becoming increasingly harder to do.
It is not a matter of holding “opinion” any longer, it is about upholding a “conviction,” not earned with your own personal scrutiny and research, but by your “faith” in such a conviction and the authorities who shape it.
Increasingly, it does not truly matter what the “facts” are, but the question of “whose side are you on?”
If that is what “reality” has been reduced to by those forces controlling the state, then any enemy to those forces controlling that state will be a villain, regardless of their actions, regardless of their ideology; and any ally to those forces controlling that state will be a hero, regardless of their actions, regardless of their ideology.
And thus, in our shaped reality of today, what makes a “Hero” or a “Villain” will be determined by the simple question “whose side are you on?”
If this is troubling to you, I suggest we do a little exercise together. Let us dare to discern the “facts” for ourselves. Only then, will we cease being mere cheerleaders for a team; only then, can we qualify ourselves to ask in all honest sincerity, “whose side are we truly on?”
Are Nazis Now the New “Good Guys”?
There is a bit of mixed messaging that has been going on, especially in the last few weeks. Are there significant numbers of Nazis in Ukraine and are these “bad” or “good” Nazis in the context that they are fighting the Russian “invaders”?
In one breath we hear the counter, how can there be Nazis in Ukraine when there is a Jewish President calling the shots? In another breath we hear Facebook is now allowing users to praise the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion while they are fighting Russians. In yet another breath we hear, well its complicated, Ukrainian Nationalism should be considered at the forefront of any debate, even if it overlaps with Nazi ideology.
On Feb. 27, 2022, Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland held a scarf bearing the slogan “Slava Ukraini,” meaning “Glory to Ukraine,” with the “Blood and Soil” colors of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) (who collaborated with the Nazis during WWII and massacred thousands of Jews and Poles).
She then proceeded to post this picture onto her Twitter account (replacing it hours later with a picture of her without the “Blood and Soil” scarf) and accused her detractors of “reeking of Russian disinformation”. This controversial picture of Freeland was reported by Canada’s National Post.
According to Freeland’s press secretary, this was just another case of a “classic KGB disinformation smear… accusing Ukrainians and Ukrainian-Canadians of being far right extremists or fascists or Nazis,” which is a confusing statement on multiple levels.
It is not clear how this is a case of “Russian disinformation,” since the picture is indeed authentic, Freeland does not deny this. And she is indeed holding a “Blood and Soil” emblem, which originated with the Nazis, clear for everyone to see. Lastly, it is confusing as to why the Canadian government seems to be unaware that the KGB no longer exists. Are they also under the impression that the Soviet Union still exists?
Not irrelevant in all of this is the fact that Freeland’s grandfather was the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper during WWII in Galicia and that she is indeed aware of this and apparently unapologetic. Whenever she is questioned about this, she does not deny anything, but simply blames such a focus of inquiry on Russian disinformation with the intent to “destabilize Western democracies.” That is, it is not a question of what is one’s historical or ideological background, but a question of “whose side are you on?”
Interestingly, it was the Canadian newspaper “The Globe and Mail” who reported this story, titled “Freeland knew her grandfather was editor of Nazi newspaper,” thus, not a Russian publication last time I checked. And upon whom did they base such information? None other than Freeland’s own uncle, John-Paul Himka, who is now professor emeritus at the University of Alberta.
According to the Globe and Mail, Freeland was aware for more than two decades that her grandfather Michael Chomiak, was the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper that vilified Jews and supported the Nazi cause.
Globe and Mail writes:
“Krakivski Visti [Krakow News] was set up in 1940 by the German army and supervised by German intelligence officer Emil Gassert. Its printing presses and offices were confiscated by the Germans from a Jewish publisher, who was later murdered at the Belzec concentration camp.
The article titled ‘Kravivski Visti and the Jews, 1943: A contribution of Ukrainian Jewish Relations during the Second World War’ was written by Ms. Freeland’s uncle, John-Paul Himka, now professor emeritus at the University of Alberta.
In the foreword to the article, Prof. Himka credits Ms. Freeland for ‘pointing out problems and clarifications.’ Ms. Freeland has never acknowledged that her grandfather was a Nazi collaborator and suggested on Monday that the allegation was part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
In 1996, Prof. Himka wrote about Mr. Chomiak’s work for Kravivski Visti, a Ukrainian-language newspaper based in Krakow that often published anti-Jewish diatribes including ‘certain passages in some of the articles that expressed approval of what the Nazis were doing to the Jews.’” [emphasis added]
Oddly, Freeland helped to edit and clarify Prof. Himka’s article discussing her grandfather as the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper, however, refused to acknowledge her grandfather’s role publicly and accused any reference to this as part of a “Russian disinformation campaign.” According to this topsy-turvy logic, Freeland’s uncle, Prof. Himka is part of this “Russian disinformation campaign,” and she is guilty of providing assistance to this “Russian disinformation campaign,” all to ruin her political career and “destabilize Western democracies.”
Freeland also told her uncle, Prof. Himka, which is included in his article, that according to her father, her grandfather Michael Chomiak was also working to some extent with the anti-Nazi resistance. However, Prof. Himka was unable to verify this information, which he described as “fragmentary and one-sided.”
This past April, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova delivered an explosive response to Chrystia Freeland’s recent obnoxious efforts to ban Russia from all international organizations and financial institutions, revealing the real sort of work Freeland’s grandfather was in the business of. You can read the full speech here.
Then there is the strange case of NATO tweeting in celebration of international women’s day, this past March 8, a picture of a female Ukrainian soldier wearing the Black Sun symbol which is tied to Nazi occultism, and Satanism. NATO wrote in their post “All women and girls must live free and equal,” sending a very mixed message. NATO also ended up taking down their picture of the Black Sun symbol.
The timing of Freeland and NATO’s twitter posts are most strange. It also begs the question, why post something at all if you are just going to delete it? Is this just a matter of not being aware of such things, or is it a matter of certain groupings getting increasingly bolder and unapologetic as to where their true allegiance lies? Has Chrystia Freeland or NATO undergone any real questioning or backlash for such public displays? Not really.
Fact Checking the “Fact-Checkers” on Ukraine
Before we go through the situation of Ukraine today, I wanted to share with you a very relevant story of how the CIA buys News.
Udo Ulfkotte was a well-known German journalist and author of numerous books. He worked for 25 years as a journalist, 17 of which were for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), including his role as editor. In his 2014 book “Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys News,” Ulfkotte goes over how the CIA along with German Intelligence (BND) were guilty of bribing journalists to write articles that either spun the truth or were completely fictitious in order to promote a pro-western, pro-NATO bent, and that he was one of those bought journalists.
In an interview, Ulfkotte describes how he finally built up the nerve to publish the book, after years of it collecting dust, in response to the erupting 2014 crisis in Ukraine stating:
“I felt that the right time had come to finish it and publish it, because I am deeply worried about the Ukrainian crisis and the possible devastating consequences for all of Europe and all of us…I am not at all pro-Russia, but it is clear that many journalists blindly follow and publish whatever the NATO press office provides. And this type of information and reports are completely one-sided”. [emphasis added]
In another interview Ulfkotte stated:
“it is clear as daylight that the agents of various Services were in the central offices of the FAZ, the place where I worked for 17 years. The articles appeared under my name several times, but they were not my intellectual product. I was once approached by someone from German Intelligence and the CIA, who told me that I should write about Gaddafi and report how he was trying to secretly build a chemical weapons factory in Libya. I had no information on any of this, but they showed me various documents, I just had to put my name on the article. Do you think this can be called journalism? I don’t think so.”
Ulfkotte has publicly stated:
“I am ashamed of it. The people I worked for knew from the get-go everything I did. And the truth must come out. It’s not just about FAZ, this is the whole system that’s corrupt all the way.” [emphasis added]
Udo Ulfkotte has since passed away. He died January 2017, found dead in his home, it is said by a heart attack. His body was quickly after cremated, thus preventing any possibility of an autopsy from occurring. His book has been made pretty much impossible to find available for purchase at this point.
Today’s situation concerning media reporting on Ukraine does not seem to be any different, if anything, it is much much worse.
To bolster support for the Ukrainian military, Kiev has churned out a steady stream of sophisticated propaganda aimed at stirring public and official support from Western countries.
Ukraine’s propaganda strategy earned it praise from a NATO commander who told the Washington Post, “They are really excellent in stratcom — media, info ops, and also psy-ops.” The Post ultimately conceded that “Western officials say that while they cannot independently verify much of the information that Kyiv puts out about the evolving battlefield situation, including casualty figures for both sides, it nonetheless represents highly effective stratcom.”
Dan Cohen for Mint Press News writes:
“Key to the propaganda effort is an international legion of public relations firms working directly with Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to wage information warfare. According to the industry news site PRWeek, the initiative was launched by an anonymous figure who allegedly founded a Ukraine-based public relations firm…
According to the anonymous figure, more than 150 public relations firms have joined the propaganda blitz.
The international effort is spearheaded by public relations firm PR Network co-founder Nicky Regazzoni and Francis Ingham, a top public relations consultant with close ties to the UK’s government. Ingham previously worked for Britain’s Conservative Party, sits on the UK Government Communication Service Strategy and Evaluation Council, is Chief Executive of the International Communications Consultancy Organisation, and leads the membership body for UK local government communicators, LG Comms.”
Thus, Ingham who has been a member of the UK government and continues to have very high-level connections within the British government, is playing a leading role in shaping how the Ukraine war is being represented.
Dan Cohen provides a thorough explanation of how these “PR firms” have been responsible for reporting and spreading fabricated news and that even when such reports are found conclusively to be untrue, they continue to use them nonetheless. These PR tools include propaganda graphics, which are created in order to encourage radicalisation and promotion of ultra-nationalist identity; using xenophobic and racist language (not just to Russians), outright praise of Ukrainian neo-Nazis as heroes, the idolisation of Nazi affiliated Unit-B leader Stefan Bandera, and the encouragement of violent acts against other individuals (see Cohen’s article for examples).
Why would someone like Ingham be involved in something like this? Well, if you have already read my paper on “How the Ukrainian Nationalist Movement was Bought and Paid for by the CIA Post WWII”, you will see that this is just a continuation of a several decades-long script.
If you have ever wondered who is behind the omnipotent “fact-checkers”, in the case of StopFake who have self-described themselves as such, they are funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) aka the fully-rogue department of the CIA, the Atlantic Council, the International Renaissance Foundation (funded by Open Society Foundation’s billionaire George Soros), the British Embassy in Ukraine, the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office, the German Marshall Fund, among others.
StopFake was hired by Facebook in March 2020 to “curb the flow of Russian propaganda” but was found to be employing multiple figures closely tied to violent neo-Nazis. This has, however, not deterred Facebook from continuing to work with StopFake.
At the end of the day, it does not seem to matter how many times these arbiters of truth are found to be wrong, for US officials have already admitted that they are literally just lying to the public about what is going on in Ukraine.
So How Serious is Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Romance?
Interestingly, the Atlantic Council itself acknowledges it is quite serious, in an article published in 2018 titled “Ukraine’s Got a Real Problem with Far-Right Violence (And No, RT Didn’t Write This Headline).”
Josh Cohen for the Atlantic Council writes [links are from the original article]:
“It sounds like the stuff of Kremlin propaganda, but it’s not. Last week Hromadske Radio revealed that Ukraine’s Ministry of Youth and Sports is funding the neo-Nazi group C14 to promote “national patriotic education projects” in the country…”
Yes, you read right, C14 along with the Azov Battalion has been training children, with encouragement and funding by the Ukrainian government via Ukraine’s Ministry of Youth and Sports under the title “national patriotic education projects”, including in terror tactics.
Josh Cohen continues [links are from the original article]:
“Since the beginning of 2018, C14 and other far-right groups such as the Azov-affiliated National Militia, Right Sector, Karpatska Sich, and others have attacked Roma groups several times, as well as anti-fascist demonstrations, city council meetings, an event hosted by Amnesty International, art exhibitions, LGBT events, and environmental activists. On March 8, violent groups launched attacks against International Women’s Day marchers in cities across Ukraine. In only a few of these cases did police do anything to prevent the attacks, and in some they even arrested peaceful demonstrators rather than the actual perpetrators.”
After the March 8 2018 attacks against International Women’s Day marchers, Amnesty International wrote “Ukraine is sinking into a chaos of uncontrolled violence posed by radical groups and their total impunity. Practically no one in the country can feel safe under these conditions.”
Josh Cohen writes:
“To be clear, far-right parties like Svoboda perform poorly in Ukraine’s polls and elections, and Ukrainians evince no desire to be ruled by them. But this argument is a bit of “red herring.” It’s not extremists’ electoral prospects that should concern Ukraine’s friends, but rather the state’s unwillingness or inability to confront violent groups and end their impunity.” [emphasis added]
However, we heard it, straight from Yevhen Karas’s mouth, the leader of Ukraine’s neo-Nazi group C14, what determines who holds power in Ukraine has never really been about polls and elections.

As the famous “f*ck the EU” tape revealed to the dumbfounded world, the Ukrainian people don’t actually have a say in who runs their government. After the so-called “Revolution of Dignity” where Ukrainians literally died for “democracy,” the US went on to “influence” the roster of the newly formed Ukrainian government, specifically around members of Svoboda and Pravyi Sector (Right Sector) who held five senior roles in the new government, including the post of deputy prime minister.
But neo-Nazis have not just been receiving western support in the political sphere.
Just this past October, as a reaction to her failed diplomatic visit to Russia, Victoria Nuland, according to French journalist Thierry Meyssan, went ahead and “imposed” Dmytro Yarosh onto President Zelensky. On Nov. 2, 2021, President Zelensky appointed Dmytro Yarosh (leader of the neo-Nazi affiliated ultra-nationalist paramilitary group Right Sector 2013-2015) as Adviser to the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Valerii Zaluzhnyi.
This is the very same Dmytro Yarosh who has been on Interpol’s “wanted list” since 2014.
Neo-Nazis have also received ongoing training by the CIA, British SAS (Special Air Service) as well as other NATO countries such as Canada since at least 2014. This training has continued despite Russia’s entry into Ukraine, which has been confirmed by The Times, Ottawa Citizen, CTV News, and Radio Canada.
The Canadian government has attempted to deny any knowledge of training neo-Nazi militants in Ukraine and have made the claim that they are not responsible for verifying who they are in fact training, but that this is the responsibility of the Ukrainian government. However, such claims of ignorance fell through when the very neo-Nazis they were training went ahead and posted pictures on their social media accounts, showcasing their neo-Nazis badges identifying them as such, plain for everyone to see.

On the same day as the untoward NATO tweet on International Women’s Day of a Ukrainian soldier with the Nazi Black Sun occult symbol, photographs appeared on NEXTA’s twitter feed showing the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion receiving training by instructors from “NATO countries” on how to use NLAW grenade launchers.

UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told the House of Commons on March 9 that “as of today, we have delivered 3,615 NLAWs [to Ukrainian forces] and continue to deliver more. We will shortly be starting the delivery of a small consignment of anti-tank Javelin missiles as well.”
For a full list of all the weapons sent to Ukraine since 2014 by all involved countries, refer here.
For those especially adamant that neo-Nazis are not “officially” a part of the Ukrainian army, you should be informed that the Azov Battalion is part of Ukraine’s National Guard, and thus, yes it is officially part of Ukraine’s military.
Andriy Biletsky, the Azov Battalion’s first commander and later a National Corps parliamentarian previously led the neo-Nazi paramilitary organisation “Patriot of Ukraine,” and once stated in 2010 that it was the Ukrainian nation’s mission to “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade… against Semite-led Untermenschen [subhumans].”
In 2019, the Soufan Center, which tracks terrorist and extremist groups around the world, warned:
“The Azov Battalion is emerging as a critical node in the transnational right-wing violent extremist network… [Its] aggressive approach to networking serves one of the Azov Battalion’s overarching objectives, to transform areas under its control in Ukraine into the primary hub for transnational white supremacy.”
The Soufan Center described how the Azov Battalion’s “aggressive networking” reaches around the world to recruit fighters and spread its white supremacist ideology. Foreign fighters who train and fight with the Azov Battalion then return to their own countries to apply what they have learned and recruit others.
In 2014, Newsweek published an article titled “Ukrainian Nationalist Volunteers Committing ‘ISIS-Style’ War Crimes.” Is this an indication of how both the Azov and ISIS have received their funding and training from the very same sources? Hmmm.
NATO has recently gone so far as to make a short film honoring the Baltic Nazi collaborators the “Forest Brothers.” The NATO film lionises the “Forest Brothers,” former Waffen SS fighters who voluntarily collaborated with the Nazis, as anti-communist heroes.
This is the story of the Forest Brothers who fought the Soviet army for their homelands after WWII pic.twitter.com/4JcfuJPmeO

Dovid Katz, a leading historian and anti-Nazi investigator condemned the NATO film for rewriting history:
“By going beyond turning a blind eye to the worship of pro-Hitler forces in Eastern Europe…[NATO] is crossing the line right into offering its moral legitimization of Nazi forces such as the Latvian Waffen SS.” [emphasis added]
David Ignatius, the Washington Post columnist and reliable voice of the US intelligence apparatus, noted that even prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, “the United States and NATO allies [were] ready to provide weapons and training for a long battle of resistance.”
This is the very same David Ignatius who was once President of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) (aka specialists in color revolutions), who arrogantly stated in a 1991 interview that “a lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA…The biggest difference is that when such activities are done overtly, the flap potential is close to zero. Openness is its own protection”.
I guess the NED has had a change of heart on “openness is its own protection.”
Jeremy Kuzmarov for Covert Action Magazine writes in an article titled “National Endowment for Democracy Deletes Records of Funding Projects in Ukraine” [links from the original article]:
“The National Endowment for Democracy (NED)—a CIA offshoot founded in the early 1980s to advance “democracy promotion” initiatives around the world—has deleted all records of funding projects in Ukraine from their searchable “Awarded Grants Search” database.
The archived webpage captured February 25, 2022 from 14:53 shows that NED granted $22,394,281 in the form of 334 awards to Ukraine between 2014 to the present. The capture at 23:10 the same day shows “No results found” for Ukraine. As of right now, there are still “No results found” for Ukraine…
The erasure of the NED’s records is necessary to validate the Biden administration’s big lie—echoed in the media—that the Russian invasion of Ukraine was ‘unprovoked.’” [emphasis added]
Who will suffer the most in this plan for a long battle of resistance? The Ukrainian people.
If Putin’s top reason for going into Ukraine is to “denazify” the country, and the CIA, NATO and co. are persistently “nazifying” the political and military components of Ukraine, you can see how this is making a situation for peace in Ukraine impossible, and that it is the CIA and NATO that are to blame for this.
You can also understand how Ukraine’s entry into NATO was unacceptable merely by its geographic location (the distance between Ukraine’s border and Moscow is 450 km), however, add in the fact that NATO is involved in the promotion of neo-Nazi militants in Ukraine and that now both Sweden and Finland have also expressed a desire to join NATO (with no referendum since democracy is officially dead in Cold War 2.0) and we have ourselves a real sh*t storm.
However, this is not just a threat to Russia. The reality of the situation is that Ukraine has been in a civil war these past 8 years, though the western media refuses to acknowledge this very important fact.
Ivan Katchanovski, Professor of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa, told MintPress:
“People who take at face value the Western media coverage would have a very distorted perception of the Ukraine conflict and its origin… They omit or deny that there is a civil war in Donbas even though the majority of scholars who [have] published or presented concerning this conflict in Western academic venues classify it as a civil war with Russian military intervention. The Western media also omitted that recent ‘unity marches’ in Kharkiv and Kyiv and a staged training of civilians, including a grandmother, were organized and led by the far right, in particular, the Neo-Nazi Azov [Battalion].”
Robert Parry from Consortium News writes [link is from original article]:
“On Sunday, a Times article by Andrew E. Kramer mentioned the emerging neo-Nazi paramilitary role in the final three paragraphs…In other words, the neo-Nazi militias that surged to the front of anti-Yanukovych protests…have now been organized as shock troops dispatched to kill ethnic Russians in the east [of Ukraine] – and they are operating so openly that they hoist a Swastika-like neo-Nazi flag over one conquered village with a population of about 10,000.
Burying this information at the end of a long article is also typical of how the Times and other U.S. mainstream news outlets have dealt with the neo-Nazi problem in the past. When the reality gets mentioned, it usually requires a reader knowing much about Ukraine’s history and reading between the lines of a U.S. news account.” [emphasis added]
In the above image which outlines the population distribution of ethnic Ukrainians and Russians within Ukraine, you can understand how an ultra-nationalist view that identifies as solely ethnic Ukrainian would be a catalyst for a civil war.
The people of Donbass have understandably asked for independence from Ukraine, yet the Ukrainian government has refused to allow this nor intervene for a peaceful resolution. What does this mean? The war can only end when one side is fully dead.
Not only is it publicly known that the US and NATO have been funding and training neo-Nazis, but they have also been supplying a massive supply of arms (as previously mentioned). It got to such a point where in 2018, Congress had to ban the United States from sending further arms to Ukraine militia linked to neo-Nazis, specifically mentioning the Azov Battalion. For some reason this ban was to only last for three years thus it is apparently fair game now?
But you may say, what about Russia’s crimes against the Ukrainian people, aren’t they far worse than even vicious neo-Nazis? Namely the bombing of the Mariupol theater and the Bucha massacre. Thorough journalistic investigations have already been done on the former, which can be found here, that conclusively shows the bombing of the Mariupol theater was a false-flag.
As for the Bucha massacre, there has been no evidence presented as of yet that conclusively proves who committed this atrocity, there have only been assertions. Recall that the chemical attacks in Syria were also full of assertions, to which investigative journalist Seymour Hersch wrote a report titled “Whose Sarin,” which conclusively proved that the popular assertions being pushed by the Obama government in their attempt to incriminate the Syrian government, were in fact false. Rather, it was pointing to the fact that the actual terrorists were the ones using sarin on the Syrian civilians, who were receiving American and co. funding and arms.
Unfortunately, time is of the essence in investigating crimes such as these, and despite the outcries of the inhumanity of such events, there is always heavy foot-dragging if not outright dismissal over an official and neutral investigation of such crime scenes. Why is this?
Russia has asked the UN Security Council for an investigation and to discuss the Bucha massacre. China has also called for an official investigation into this and has received backlash for withholding blame until all facts are known. However, an official investigation has been repeatedly refused. Why? This should be the official protocol for such matters.
Instead, the response to this was for the UN to suspend Russia from its human rights body. Thus, not only denying an official investigation, but denying Russia a voice in responding to the matter.
The disturbing elephant in the room in all of this, is that the Azov Battalion has already been found guilty of similar atrocities against its own Ukrainian people, which has been thoroughly investigated by Max Blumenthal and Esha Krishnaswamy and which can be found here (warning there is graphic content).
The Azov Battalion has also been found guilty of purposefully putting Ukrainian citizens in jeopardy by positioning their artillery and military in residential areas and buildings, including daycares and hospitals, to which even the Washington Post had to acknowledge in their misleadingly titled article “Russia has killed civilians in Ukraine. Kyiv’s defense tactics add to the danger.”
However, these are not simply “defense tactics,” they are blatant war crimes that are recognised as such by international law. These war crimes are publicly acknowledged to be going on, causing the deaths of a significant number of Ukrainians. Just to be clear here, during times of war, to which the Washington Post also acknowledges, Ukrainian soldiers and weaponry are legitimate targets for the Russian military. It is not Russia that is committing the war crime here, it is the Ukrainian government. They have literally been caught using their own people as human shields.
Does this still sound like a patriotic nationalist movement for the welfare and sovereignty of the Ukrainian people?
According to an interview with Scott Ritter, former US Marine Intelligence Officer, the Russian military have made it clear that they are using “Syrian tactics” in Ukraine.
Scott Ritter explains, the Russian military’s tactic in Syria was:
“…to surround urban areas where these jihadists had been gathered, terrorizing the population, surround them and give them the opportunity to evacuate on buses with their security guaranteed by Russian military police. A soft approach that protected civilians, that protected civilian areas.”
It was this tactic that allowed the Russians along with the Syrian army to defeat ISIS and other terrorist affiliates. Today they only occupy the Idlib province. These terrorists who remain would not have been possible without Turkish support. This initiative to rid Syria of ISIS was something that the United States has clearly never been interested in supporting.
In the image on the left the red and largely the blue represent the region controlled by terrorists, or as Obama liked to call them “moderate rebels” in the year 2017, in the image to the right the purple and grey represent the region controlled by terrorists in the year 2021. The green is the United States and co.’s illegal presence in the country.
Interestingly, when the Russians entered Syria to combat the terrorists at the behest of the Syrian government, this was also called a “Russian invasion” by certain quarters of western media. However, it was not the Russians who bombed Syrian cities to the ground, that was the good ol’ US of A.
In the same interview, Scott Ritter stated that these very terrorists who have been stationed in Idlib are now being brought into Ukraine:
“…[Zelensky] has opened the door for illegal warriors, the mercenaries from Europe…the exploiters of conflict…[and] they brought in the jihadists…they brought in the people..[who] ostensibly want to kill Russians…It’s a poison pill…now we are going to have these jihadists, who are being armed by the way with javelin missiles and stinger missiles. Imagine what happens when a bunch of bloodthirsty jihadists take these weapons into Europe. Would you like to be the German Chancellor driving on a highway knowing that up in the hills could be a jihadist hit-team armed with javelins?…This is literally the worst kind of decision-making ever to put that much weaponry into Ukraine in an uncontrolled fashion. Even before the jihadist came in you were giving it to neo-Nazis who can’t surrender. They can’t surrender because they will be killed, rightfully so. So what do desperate people do when they can’t surrender and they don’t die? They run away with the weaponry they have. They’ll be burying it, making caches, falling back on it, continuing the futile resistance and in their anger to the West they’ll lash out at the West…that is how global terrorism is born.”
How is this in the best interest of anyone’s welfare in Europe, let alone Ukraine? It isn’t.
In November 2015, a UN resolution was brought forward condemning the glorification of Nazism. Of the total 126 member states, 53 countries including member nations of the European Union abstained from voting, four countries voted against the resolution: Canada, Palau, the United States, and Ukraine.
Why do you think that is?
Zelensky: the Enigma
Many have been especially confused as to how Ukraine can have such a serious neo-Nazi problem, when they have a Jewish President.
There is something you should know about the position of “President” of Ukraine since 2014, in a country where neo-Nazis have been made more confident than the mafia ever was, that they literally cannot be touched since they have the direct backing and protection of the United States and NATO.
When President Poroshenko (June 2014 – May 2019) negotiated the Minsk agreements in September 2014, he agreed, with Germany and France, to the special autonomous status of Donetsk and Lugansk, and that under this special condition, they would stay part of Ukraine.
According to an interview with Scott Ritter, this was unacceptable to the neo-Nazis who threatened Poroshenko’s life, if such a thing were to be implemented.
The Minsk agreements were never put into action. Instead, Ukraine entered a civil war that has gone on for 8 years and continues to this day. The Minsk agreements were officially expired on February 21st, 2022, the same day that the State Duma of Russia passed a bill officially recognizing Donetsk and Lugansk as independent states. This ultimate rejection by the Ukrainian government was a clear indication that their war against Donbass would be escalated.
The situation with President Zelensky is no different.
In October 2019, President Zelensky (who assumed office in May 2019), had a recorded face-to-face confrontation with the militants from the Azov Battalion, who had launched a campaign to sabotage the peace initiative called “No to Capitulation.”
Kyiv Post translated the conversation as such:
“’Listen, Denys [Yantar], I’m the president of this country. I’m 41 years old. I’m not a loser. I came to you and told you: remove the weapons. Don’t shift the conversation to some protests,’ Zelensky said, videos of the exchange show. As he said this, Zelensky aggressively approached Yantar, who heads the National Corps, a political offshoot of the far-right Azov volunteer battalion, in Mykolaiv city.
‘But we’ve discussed that,’ Yantar said.
‘I wanted to see understanding in your eyes. But, instead, I saw a guy who’s decided that this is some loser standing in front of him,’ Zelensky said.”
The Kyiv Post continues in their article, that this reaction by President Zelensky received a strong backlash from certain quarters of Ukraine:
“Andriy Biletsky, head of National Corps and the Azov Battalion, threatened Zelensky on his YouTube channel that more veterans would head to Zolote if the president tried to evict them from the town. ‘There will be thousands there instead of several dozen,’ he said…
Singer Sofia Fedyna, who is a lawmaker with the European Solidarity party of former President Petro Poroshenko, which has 27 seats in parliament, was particularly aggressive in her response. She issued physical threats against Zelensky.
‘Mr. President thinks he is immortal,’ she said in a video shared on Facebook. ‘A grenade may explode there, by chance. And it would be the nicest if this happened during Moscow’s shelling when someone comes to the front line wearing a white or blue shirt.’
Zelensky has previously visited the front line dressed in civilian clothing, rather than military fatigues.”
Thus, the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion publicly threatened Zelensky if he were to intervene on attempting to negotiate peace and end Ukraine’s civil war.
However, this is not the full story.
President Zelensky is also backed by Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky, who sponsored Zelensky’s rise to presidency, not just with his presidential campaign, but also in the tv show “Servant of the People,” that Zelensky literally “play-acted” as President for three seasons, which ran from November 16th, 2015 to March 28th, 2019. Zelensky was elected president of Ukraine less than two months after the last episode, on May 20th, 2019.
Former President Poroshenko even publicly called Zelensky “Kolomoisky’s puppet” during the presidential campaign.
“For years, Zelensky’s company has produced shows for Kolomoisky’s biggest TV channel, 1 + 1. In 2019, Kolomoisky’s media channels gave a big boost to Zelensky’s presidential campaign. After, Zelensky’s victory, Kolomoisky kept up his relationship with the president, nominating over 30 lawmakers to Zelensky’s newly established party, and maintaining influence with many of them in parliament.”
Since Zelensky’s presidency, Kolomoisky has been able to secure control over a significant portion of Ukraine’s energy sector, including Ukrnafta and Centrenergo, as well as Burisma Holdings.
A 2012 study of Burisma Holdings done in Ukraine by the AntiCorruption Action Centre (ANTAC) found that the true owner of Burisma Holdings was none other than Kolomoisky.
Recall the Joe and Hunter Biden scandal over Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas company. The Bidens ties with Kolomoisky and the situation of Ukraine today is not a coincidence.
In the 1990s, Kolomoisky set up PrivatBank, which quickly grew to be one of the biggest financial institutions in Ukraine.
In 2016, Ukraine nationalized PrivatBank from Kolomoisky and his business partner, Gennadiy Boholiubov. A U.S. Justice Department civil forfeiture complaint from December 2020, said the two men “embezzled and defrauded the bank of billions of dollars.” [emphasis added]
There is also the matter of the Pandora Papers, which has confirmed that Ukrainian oligarch Kolomoisky was funneling millions of dollars in concealed assets offshore. Zelensky was also implicated in this. And what this of course also means, is that the City of London is tied into all of this.
Kolomoisky has a notorious history of being a literal “raider” of Ukrainian companies, as confirmed by Harper’s Magazine, and Forbes.
“Bogolyubov and Kolomoisky fostered strong reputations as corporate raiders in the mid-2000s, becoming notorious for a series of hostile takeovers. Hostile takeovers Ukrainian style, that is, which often included the active involvement of Privat’s quasi-military teams.”
Kolomoisky, who is Jewish, is also a funder of the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion since it was formed in 2014, which has been confirmed by Reuters, Newsweek, and Aljazeera.
He has also bankrolled private militias like the Dnipro and Aidar Battalions and has personally deployed them to protect his financial interests.
In other words, Kolomoisky is funding the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion who have been fighting Eastern Ukrainians for these past 8 years, and thus has been directly fueling the civil war in Ukraine. One of the reasons for this, is that Donbass is a region with many natural resources, especially for the energy sector, to which Kolomoisky would very much like to be in possession of. This could only occur with the extermination or occupation of the people of Donbass.
Interestingly, this past Victory Day (May 8th), First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky’s interview was cut short on Sky News when he brought up that Zelensky shared on his Twitter account for Victory Day the insignia of the Nazi 3rd SS Panzer Division Totenkopf.
After years of civil war, the city of Mariupol has now been liberated. Do you think the people in the West will ever hear about this?
Where do We go from Here?
Well, let me put it this way. The United States and NATO know they cannot defeat Russia or China in a direct war, hence all of these proxy wars these past several years under the guise of “War on Terror.” As David Ignatius honestly expressed, their desire is for a long-drawn war. This is because they believe that they can bankrupt Russia and/or set the stage for internal unrest and eventual coup. However, things are clearly not going as planned.
What has been greatly underestimated in this situation is 1) China’s solid alliance with Russia, 2) that Russia is the most resource abundant country in the world to which Europe is dependant on, and 3) the economic brilliance of Sergey Glazyev.
Russia’s rouble has also not tanked as expected. In fact, it has actually grown stronger than ever.
Alasdair Macleod for Goldmoney writes:
“Keynesians in the West have misread this situation. They think that the Russian economy is weak and will be destabilised by sanctions. That is not true. Furthermore, they would argue that a currency strengthened by insisting that oil and natural gas are paid for in roubles will push the Russian economy into a depression. But that is only a statistical effect and does not capture true economic progress or the lack of it, which cannot be measured. The fact is that the shops in Russia are well stocked, and fuel is freely available, which is not necessarily the case in the West.
The advantages for Russia are that as the West’s currencies sink into crisis, the rouble will be protected. Russia will not suffer from the West’s currency crisis, she will still get inflation compensation in commodity prices, and her interest rates will decline while those in the West are soaring. Her balance of trade surplus is already hitting new records.”
It is the West who has miscalculated in all of this, and it is their economy that will utterly tank from this “long-drawn” war these oligarchs have been having wet dreams about for God knows how many years.
We have done this to ourselves. And if we truly want to correct the matter, we should first have the respect to admit the truth in our complicity to much of the world’s woes during this Cold War period. Those of us who have lived in abundance, in comfort, and security, should take the first step to speak out and say no more to the rest of the world living in starved war-torn agony.
We must stop caring for ourselves first at the expense of all else. We must start caring for others first and foremost and acknowledge the crimes that have been committed in our name. Only then can we truly have the humility to see that the solution has been in front of our face the whole time.
If we fail in this, the western world will not be able to sustain itself for much longer economically. And when it falls, what sort of people do you think you will be surrounded by after all these years of supporting fascism under your very nose?

Thank God we , the European and Anglosphere taxpayers are bankrolling the Ukraine for everything, because apart from being a war -thug , that tattooed-face Azov Nazi shown , would be unemployable in any other job in any other country in peacetime. With our hard-earned tax funds, if he isn’t killed in battle against the Russians he will grow fat from other peoples’ labour.
If you are perusing the comments I want to thank you, Cynthia, for all of your articles and research. Your articles on strategic culture are very informative and I also enjoyed listening when you were a guest on Tim Kelly’s podcast several months ago.
Fantastic, thank you very much for this!!!!
Great Article and important.
NATO has always had a ‘ambigous’ relationship with the various Fascist groups in Europe.
For example, As part of the War to Destroy Yugoslavia, the war party funded and provided significant support to openly Fascist groups in Slovenia, Croatia,and Bosnia.
It was so bad that in Bosnia, the war party funded and supported a full on original Nazi by the name of Alija Iztbegovoć as leader of a violent succession political party. Alija Iztbegović had been a youth leader in the Muslim branch of the Hitler Youth during WWII. During the 1950s, Iztbegović was found guilty of various terror acts and sentenced to hard time. That’s the guy, the War Party decided to fund and support in the late 80’s as part of the War Party’s War to Destroy Yugoslavia.
Europeans should realize that the War Party in Washington has zero desire to see a stable prosperous Europe. That’s why Washington ALWAYS favors Funding and supporting the worst dregs of a society.
– the War Party in Washington has zero desire to see a stable prosperous Europe.
Implying the War Party in Washington are working for a stable and prosperous US..
The vaccines has decimated US Army. Who will let a vaccinated pilot fly today??
That is only the tip of the iceberg. Former Croatian leader Franjo Tudjman fought for Tito’s Partisans in WW2 but then became a Nazi leader. He wrote a book called Historical Wastelands which reduces the number of deaths of Jews and others during the Holocaust. He allowed the return of former Croatian Ustase back to his government who escaped to countries such as Argentina, Canada , USA and Australia. The Croatian Ustase were led by Ante Pavelic and took power in Croatia in 1941 after the fall of Yugoslavia. Today Croatia largely ignores Nazi element in society which is growing larger not unlike the Banderists in Ukraine.
Whew. A comprehensive study requiring some hours to understand and digest.
I welcome this kind of information. Now to the work of giving this piece to attention it deserves.
“In one breath we hear the counter, how can there be Nazis in Ukraine when there is a Jewish President calling the shots?”
Well, having a Jew as the president of a country is more dangerous to people of the country. The Jew Ze is quite happy to wage war to the last Ukrainian male, and getting rid of the Ukrainian women as refugees. The Ukrainians are simply goyim…
The Resource Wars have begun. The Russian Federation spans 11 time zones and sits atop 1/4 to 1/3 of the world’s resources…..if they can hold on to the goodies with no repeat of the early 1990s. The zio-globo-homo empire wants the resources. The nuclear armed Rooskies sit atop them. Something has to give……..
What a fabulous report! So thoroughly researched, which contrary to MSM cliches and stereotypes, opens the door to serious consideration and empathy. Anybody may openly debate what Chung wrote; Chung provides the opportunity for any counter-review engagement due to Chung’s transparent research, but nobody in authoritarian circles have the ability to consider, empathize, engage, and provide the depth and open research necessary.
Concerning Bucha, here is a well-researched tentative conclusion by Professor Gordon Hahn, who has a thick-background, in which he states in his article, “The Western/Kiev narrative begins to fall apart from the start.” https://gordonhahn.com/2022/05/10/tentative-conclusions-on-bucha-a-small-my-lai/
– as to where their true allegiance lies?
WWII time this answers everything about who are nazis or not. Those with allegiance to Hitler and 3rd Reich were nazis.
Today it creates a row of open-ended question.
An excellent article. This level of writing is really impressive.
Wish you write for The Saker more often.
Cynthia, thank you, thank you. This is worth several rereads.
Indeed. Extensive but important review, hopefully in time this instance of the reprehensible pattern of western policy, and the detailed points researched here, will escape the wartime informational blockade. Hopefully in one form or another, it will find wider readership.
Historians of IR certainly won’t be surprised, as it has been the norm of post-WWII US imperialism to fund whichever group had the greatest will and ability to carry out political violence (while reliably following orders) – and of course this meant those who were least morally inhibited. The recurring pattern is extreme-right-wingers with racist world views, to dehumanize their victims, so as to let go of moral inhibitions normal people have.
As always it is denied while it is happening. Grudgingly studied a few decades later by academics of the countries responsible – but their findings largely veiled in euphemism. Never taught in basic history classes. Those outside the imperialist bubble learn the reality sooner, those on the receiving end of the war crimes learn it in real time.
I suppose this is really for most of the “third parties” – neither the perpetrators/sponsors, nor the victims. Among the third parties, who also like everyone must live in a propaganda fog, each generation has to re-discover this nasty and nearly constant pattern – of imperialists allying with the worst imaginable forces simply based on willingness to commit political violence. Because they don’t teach it in school.
The question was asked “So How Serious is Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Romance”. One answer is this:
One of the Ukrainian “negotiators” in the talks with Russia had these choice words to say.
1.”Mikhail Podoliak, one of Ukraine’s negotiators, said he wanted the very word ‘Russians’ forgotten in the Ukrainian regions currently not held by Kiev” (i.e. all the so far liberated areas of the former Ukraine).
2. Talking about the authorities in the LDNR he says “all these criminal elements which call themselves the authorities there be gone, physically gone,” once the Ukrainian military retakes Donbass.
3. “liberating, and doing so in as tough a manner as possible with respect to collaborators as well as Russian troops” Kherson Region and Zaporozhye Region (i.e the many thousands of people in those liberated areas that support the Russian liberation should be murdered).
4.The official added that he wants the word ‘Russians’ to be forgotten and consigned to history in Kharkov Region ( i.e. the genocide of the Russians of the Kharkov region).
It’s more than time for the LDNR republics recognized as independent by Russia to ask to be a part of any further negotiations with the former Ukraine. Sure we all know that they follow Russia’s lead . But they still need to act like the independent states that Russia officially recognized them to be.They should directly declare war on the former Ukraine. And take a seat at any negotiations with that criminal entity. The advantages for Russia in that situation would be enormous.It would most importantly allow Russia to play the “good cop” to the LDNR playing “bad cop”. It would let the LDNR take the lead in bringing the liberated territories into the Russian fold. And allow the LDNR to handle under their law the war crimes prosecutions. They are the ones who have suffered the most,and continue to suffer the most for their freedom. They should be the ones to lead the way to the end of the former Ukraine. And the trial of nazi criminals such as this Mikhail Podoliak. Who such at once have an arrest warrant put out on him by the LDNR courts under the incitement to commit crimes.And the incitement to ethnic hatred criminal statutes.The only way to denazify the former Ukraine is by harsh and unremitting measures. No half measures and turning away will do the job. Learn from the Soviets mistakes from the past in not fully denazifying that area.And the mistakes of the last 30 years in the former Ukraine’s handling of the nazi threat,and don’t repeat them. Don’t err on the side of lightness in dealing with these criminals. As was done,to our great regret today in the past.
If Zelensky being a ‘Jewish’ President is their (NATO/US/UK/EU/EC/NEOCONs/Zionists/MSM) defense against or refutation of accusations of nazism, then is not a ‘Jewish’ war on Russia?
Which is it? both?
“who collaborated with the Nazis during WWII and massacred thousands of Jews and Poles”
I don’t know about the massacre, but it was as anti-communists that they collaborated with the Nazis, right? I don’t think they were Nazis when they decided to collaborate. How they would be Nazis today I don’t know. Too few explanations of this are available, if any.
The cover pic used here has history. Take a look at nazi’ism.
People who really have nothing in common with the Germans of the 1930s and 1940s are called “Nazis.” In the link above, Kent Ryan McLellan fought in the Donbass and is supposed to be fighting there now. He looks demented in a picture, he has tattoos in his whole face. He’s a modern-day lunatic and it doesn’t matter what he calls himself. There may be some elements of truth in Ukraine’s case, but the term “Nazi” is understandably “convenient” to use and the Soviet communist history may be weighing heavily in the use of the term (I think so). Nazism was founded by Adolf Hitler. Ukrainians have little reason to follow Adolf Hitler.
I think a good starting point is to see if Bandera was mainly or just a Ukrainian nationalist who sided with the Nazis because it was a convenient alliance. The Ukrainian language is a reality which points to a separate history, too, and to their own nation as a people. A different language of their own speaks of this very strongly. Then the Waffen SS were an elite fighting force admired by even Stalin as such. They probably liked the “My Honor is My Loyalty” part and may be proud of their overall military experience from their own standpoint. All this would not mean that they are National Socialists. Or the truth may be somewhere in-between. As they say, truth is one of the first casualties of war.
Now that is really depressing Amarynth-so instead of giving these hopeless psychopaths some treatment they are giving them weapons-could be a cunning plan though!
CIA/MI6 is a factory producing radicals on assembly lines, with FBI and DHS as job centres; IRA, Mujahideen, Al-Qaida, Al-Nusra Front, ISIS, Azov, Falun gong, Gladio, P2, Bader-Meinhof and other death squads, m.m.
Thanks to Mrs. Chung and Saker+ for another high intelligent research.
So the whole Gay-7 is rotten to the core. I wonder where is the Sicilian Mafia and Godfather in all this. I havent seen anything about organised crime for a long time. Did MIC take over their business?
Couldnt Belarus and North Korea join forces with Russia? Its quite a big job to clean out all these orcs and their pretenders.
No it wasn’t. The OUN was originally founded to fight the Polish government. The western oblasts weren’t under soviet control until a decade after the OUN’s official founding. When the Germans arrived, Bandera proclaimed an independent Ukraine that pledged personal fealty to Hitler and political fealty to the third reich. Things didn’t get very official until 1943, but the Nazis has plenty of Ukrainian volunteers throughout. Grossman’s original description of Treblinka accounted for no more than 250 guards, 50 were German SS and the other 200 were Ukrainian volunteers. Stalin suppressed the Ukrainian part for stability’s sake.
There was a brief moment of an independent Ukraine during the Russian civil war / polish-soviet war. But it collapsed, though there was a solid, anti-Semitic pogrom carried out in its brief history.
After WWII, the Ukrainian emigre community, shot through with exfiltrated Nazi collaborators and war criminals retold their story as being anti-communist and left out all the fascist, Nazi collaboration.
An excellent article! This link is a nice reference to show the depth of Nazi culture in Ukraine, written by a Ukrainian refugee.
It’s a bit exhausting to read because there is just so much of it.
Today I have been seeing an exhibition of occult books, from a century ago, temporarily close to Nazism, full of esoteric Nazi signs, One of the magazines on display was called “Lucifer”. They explicitly worshiped Satan.
they have not disappeared, they are infiltrated (theosophical societies and freemasonry) in multiple secret societies in the circles of power in the USA and Europe.
This power has infernally corrupted the West even in the most innocent children and is after Russia, it is absolute evil that makes war on us. How are they not going to need 200 public relations agencies to make that filth drinkable! It is very clear which side you have to be on to win, there are no middle terms here.
‘‘The people have a right to the truth as they have a right to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness.’’ Epictetus (55 – 135)
‘‘Peace if possible, but truth at any rate.’’ Martin Luther (1483 – 1546)
Freeland was a CIA asset . Has a condo in Kiev overlooking Maidan, participated in anti-Russian organization for many years on Russian of western agents .
After WW2 Canada absorbed many Jewish survivors of genocide by Ukrainian nazis in Polish Galicia (now Western Ukraine). The two sides seem to have reconciled their differences since then, with the Canadian descendant of an Ukrainian nazi, Freeland, colluding with the Ukrainian Jewish oligarch, Kolomoisky, to fund and arm Jewish-only Presidents of Ukraine and introduce Azov nazi battalions into the Ukrainian army.
Not really reconciled their differences . If you look at the case of Keegstra (Dutch) and Zundal (German) who questioned the Holocaust, Jewish organizations went after them, Not sure how Freeland’s grandpa escaped scrutiny. There are too many of them from all the NATO countries that the Catholic Church hid and smuggled into Canada and USA.
How Serious is Europe’s Nazi Romance?
Why single out Ukrainians? When I was a child most countries in Europe were either Nazi (Germany) Fascist (Italy, Spain, Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Poland, Denmark, Finland) or Sympathizers (Britain, France, Sweden). For the second time in my life, the whole of Europe is going to require denazification.
How serious is Europe’s situation? Serious but not desperate? or Desperate but not serious?
Keep calm and pay in rubles.
It apparently lies just under the surface. Neo-Colonialism and the insistence of being racial superior:
Slant eyes, Russians, Africans, Latins and Moslems are inferior.
Its an extremely ugly mixture and ideology, especially because these people have absolutely nothing to offer other than stupidity.
Please check these two tables.
1) GDP-PPP per capita according IMF
You can find Ukraine is list number 129. Below countries like Indonesia, Egypt and Sri Lanka
2) IQ results of countries according international study
See table below the page. Average IQ of Ukrainians just 90 points. One of the lowest in Europe.
While there are indeed issues in claim of correlation of IQ and economy these two results are really telling that something has been wrong in Ukraine for long time. Intellectual capacity of country has been decimated. And Nazi ideology is s certainly not making problems more soluable.
Trade balance was once very important indicator of any country’s economic situation. But since 1990’s the whole measurement has been abandoned in EU. This is hinting that EU has totally lost touch to real economy.
With or without Ukrainian war, the western dominance era has already come to end. Most likely we are moving to18th century kind era where 70-80% of global trade was concentrated to China-India axis. Transatlantic share will be just around 20%. This is the new (old) world we are going to.
One technical point: The Ukrainian ultra-right are actually unusual in that they are not NEO-Nazis. The lineage of Ukrainian far-right organizations stretches all the way back to WW II with no real interruptions; sometimes they’ve been more underground than other times, but there has been institutional continuity throughout. That is, those are not NEO-Nazis, they are ACTUAL Nazis whose institutional roots go directly back to wartime Nazi organizations.
“Udo Ulfkotte has since passed away. He died January 2017, found dead in his home, it is said by a heart attack. His body was quickly after cremated, thus preventing any possibility of an autopsy from occurring. His book has been made pretty much impossible to find available for purchase at this point.”
In Russia,China,and in the LDNR that book needs to be translated into foreign languages and put on sale worldwide. If Russia and China are concerned about some kind “copy right” on it. Have it be printed in the LDNR which I’m sure will already be sanctioned by the West anyway.So it won’t matter. That book would be quickly a best seller throughout Russia,China,and the developing world.And similar to the Wikileaks exposures show the world the CIA penetration of world news agencies.
Attached are excerpts by Rodney Atkinson of current western leaders which should give many a good laugh. Except its not funny. Posted by Rodney Atkinson, Freenations. Go to the link for full descriptions.
President JOE BIDEN, “was named “Mr 1%” because that was the vote he got from Democratic members…..”
KAMALA HARRIS, “is one of the most embarrassingly ignorant Vice Presidents ever.
German Chancellor OLAF SCHOLZ, “has proved a weak leader, taking stands against arming Ukraine and resisting sanctions and then caving in” His family name is Von Scholz and his grandfather was SS Standartenfuehrer Fritz von Scholz…………
KLAUS SCHWAB, the Dr Strangelove figure who dresses in quasi masonic regalia………”
VOLODYMIR ZELENSKY “the professional comedian and drug addict know for playing the piano on public television with his penis….”
URULA VON DER LEYEN, President of the European Commission “was the second most unpopular German politician in a Der Spiegel poll………”
BORIS JOHNSON “the 3 times married serial adulterer with an unknown number of children, called a selfish bastard by his daughter Lara. Forced to resign as Arts Minister and party vice chairman for lying about one of his affairs…..”
LIZ TRUSS “the embarrassing British Foreign Secretary, confusing the Baltics with the Black Sea and the Donbass with Russia, showing aggressive Russophobia…..”
JUSTIN TRUDEAU “the Chinese communism admirer, first Canadian PM to invoke emergency powers Act, confiscating bank accounts of his opponents and classifying them as “terrorists”.”
JOSEP BORRELL “the EU’s “High representative for foreign Affairs” a Spanish socialist politician, who has been cheerleader for repression in Catalonia, calling it a “war” in which 9 Catalan leaders have been jailed for rebellion!”
You forget that Borrell and his socialist PSOE party were against Spain joining NATO in the 80’s.
Another exhaustive article from one of the foremost commentators writing on the net today.
Thank you again and often.
Kremlin spokesperson put it perfectly : Macron did utter truth in 2019 – that NATO is” brain-dead”.
Now it takes Russia’s Zakharova to clinch it :
“From the point of view of the logic of the Elysee Palace, everything is clear: the organization, which “lost its brain”, urgently needed new members. Donors?”
Does anyone notice the humor? The very famous story of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, a Golem patched together from stolen human members, the last organ was the brain.
So, it is clear Sweden and Finland are the brains of FrankeNATOstein (sorry Pepe Escobar NATOstan does not quite capture it). Check for bolts at Stoltenbergs neck….
Any vying for FrankeNATOstein’s partner – Ursula van der Lügen and Annalena Baerbock :
Congratulations Cynthia for your extensive work to clarify the interested people. Unfortunately a lot of them prefer believe in the west “presstitute”.
Sounds like there’s more Nazis than Indigenous people in Canada, mind you, the Canadian Education Services & Catholic Church genocided a lot of folk, many more mass graves are expected to be discovered in the future. I hope Allied Forces bear this in mind when they come to deal with the Canadians who crawl out of Azovstal.
International arrest warrants should be issued for people like Freeland and Kolomoisky. The Canadian public are obviously not the brightest on the planet, voting for proven Nazi sympathisers. Brain dead morons in fact, still attached by the anus to The Crown & 5 Eye trash.
12 years now I’ve stopped visiting that ass-wipe country, having spent 3-5 weeks every year for the previous decade. My relations still don’t understand my boycott, starve the beast. Like the US they’re fake. Yes there are some good folks, few and far between though. I certainly don’t miss the smell of Toronto in the summer, like an old hooker’s end of day business g-string.
Well I grew up here and I can tell you that Canada is a racist society, just like Australia and all of the West. USA took the lead from the British after WW2 and nothing different has really happened, except that the Zionists are in control.
They have always controlled the money and they issue the orders. These western governments are just the same as the Nazis in the Ukraine. That is why they fund them. Multiculturalism is a farce to get votes, just like in rabid racist America.
The West thinks people around this world have forgotten they’re treatment of them; they still think that they could bully them into subjugation. Russia has the means to destroy the entire NATO/USA in Europe. They will free the entire western Ukraine, and the rest of the world is watching.
You might have stopped coming to Canada, but I am leaving.
Yes it would take a Nazi PM like Trudeau to fill the Deputy slot with another Nazi in Freeland.
Fantastic article, Ms. Chung! Thanks!
What is “the Black Sun” representing?
– Whereas the Thule Society ended up focusing primarily upon materialistic and political agendas, the Vril Society put its attention on the “Other Side.”
– A local medium named Maria Orsic began getting messages in an unknown language and couldn’t transcribe them, so began meeting with key members of these societies, along with another medium named Sigrun. Accordingly, the messages were coming from a being from the star Aldeberan, which has two planets which form the ’Sumeran Empire’.
My impression was “the Black Sun” was located in inner Earth, but I know nothing about that.
Maria Orsic left Earth 1945.
Cynthia identifies “the Black Sun” as a Nazi symbol and seems to believe that is “an answer”
The Nazis became space travellers, and they are still going strong.
This is a fantastic article. Thank you so much.
A comprehensive description of far-right movements in Ukraine should also include Centuria, which attempts to penetrate Ukraine’s armed forces.
“Evidence uncovered in this paper suggests that since 2018, the Hetman Petro Sahaidachny National Army Academy (NAA), Ukraine’s premier military education institution and a major hub for Western military assistance to the country, has been home to Centuria, a self-described order of “European traditionalist” military officers that has the stated goals of reshaping the country’s military along right-wing ideological lines and defending the “cultural and ethnic identity” of European peoples against “Brussels’ politicos and bureaucrats.” The group envisions a future where “European right forces are consolidated and national traditionalism is established as the disciplining ideological basis for the European peoples.””
Thanks for the link. The article mentions 14/88 and it shows Centuria’s insignia. That’s what we see here in this video of captured militants in Mariupol:
Thank you! So much raw, juicy truth. Crystia is a souless faker, who should never have been allowed to govern anything. Except mabey Pa-pa and nannas’ vegetable garden outside of Andrew, Alberta, Canada. Speaking of fake people, Justin “Alladin” Trudeau is the only thing stopping Canada from having a real, live NAZI prime minister. Or was it planned that way?
I would like to commend this truly brilliant article. The dots have been masterfully connected, and to a true seeker of the truth, who may wish to verify any of the facts presented, the article is an invaluable fount of information.
This will be permanently bookmarked for me.
And please Cynthia, do grace the Saker site with your fantastic work as often as conditions permit.
Thank you for linking to this article “Far-Right Group Made Its Home in Ukraine’s Major Western Military Training Hub” https://www.illiberalism.org/far-right-group-made-its-home-in-ukraines-major-western-military-training-hub/. It’s extremely important in showing the infiltration of the far right (nazis) into the Ukrainian military. I think that explains a lot about why the Ukrainian military hasn’t surrendered or overthrown the regime by now.

Thank you Cynthia for your thorough research
It’s shocking how unsuspecting Westerners are led by Ukrainian nationalists to repeat the Bandera slogan of “glory to Ukraine”, little suspecting that the slogan ends with “death to the enemies” (ie., Russians, Poles, Germans and Jews).
In one of the videos linked showing the pro-Ukrainian protests in Canada, I noticed that the demonstrators were jumping up and down in unison. This is a technique that was used by the Ukrainian football ultras in 2014 to work themselves into a collective frenzy before burning alive more than 40 people in the trade union building in Odessa. There are videos with a whole stadium packed full of people jumping up and down shouting everybody who doesn’t jump is a Moscal (derogatory term for Russians). A little later that crowd was marching through the streets of Odessa shouting Russians on the knife. That is scary, even by Nazi standards. In Ukraine, the Nazi murderers enjoy immunity from prosecution.
It’s that condonement of Nazi violence by the State that turns individual acts of violence against an ethnic group into something akin to genocide. Thus, Putin’s accusation of genocide isn’t that far off. Even if it is not possible to prove that the orders for the violence came from the government, the government promotes the violence by covering the murderers and by denying the victims justice. The Kyiv regime covers the Nazi murderers, while Western governments cover the Kyiv regime. They are all in it together to establish a reign of Nazi terror.
Hmm, that must explain ‘jump on Maidan’?
May I put a humor picture here?

Thank you Cynthia for your excellent article, which was well worth reading, really gripping and informative.
It looks pretty serious to me. Russia has a nazi infestation in Ukraine to clean out. Leaving it to just fester is too dangerous for the future:
Truth on Ukraine. The Unholy Trinity.
New footage from the Azovstal plant, Mariupol:

It seems to be that this narrative attempts to bridge a gap of Jacques R. Pauwels where he (among others) have explained that American and other Western Corporation assisted or perhaps created Hitler. The Fascist was the product of El Duce – Mussolini.
But, what this narrative seems to be alluding to is that Nazism was a policy of Western Gov’t even before the arrival of Churchill.
Yes, I am open to correction as the Western cookie for ‘full spectrum domination’ comes crumbling down leaving them hoping that Klaus Schwab Great Reset will salvage the their trajectory. Logically, I cannot see any success in this Bankrupted Western drive with the Russia-China-Iran-Turkey-Brazil alliance and the emerging Multi Polar International System.
The PSOE had an internal coup at the end of Francoism where its leadership-in-exile was ousted by fascist/atlanticist agents in order to have a controlled opposition whi couls contest popular support of the PCE.
This process was funded by american institutions, francoist institutions, and german SPD.
«As David Ignatius honestly expressed, their desire is for a long-drawn war.»
_elensky dared to say the same in an interview to “The Economist”:
«Mr Zelensky divides NATO into five camps. First are those who “don‘t mind a long war because it would mean exhausting Russia, even if this means the demise of Ukraine and comes at the cost of Ukrainian lives”.»
«Not irrelevant in all of this is the fact that Freeland’s grandfather was the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper during WWII in Galicia and that she is indeed aware of this and apparently unapologetic.»
It is quite irrelevant on its own, and grandchildren do not have to apologize for the actions or opinions of any of their four grandparents. To argue otherwise is worse than medieval.
Perhaps having had a grandfather like that means that Freeland grew up in a “revanchist” family and was influenced by it, but her political choices are are still her personal responsibility.
