Ukrainian Parliamentarian Publishes Essay on ‘Social-Nationalism’

_78489613_024440254-1_0

The following excerpts are from an article written by Andriy Biletsky – the leader of the ‘Patriot of Ukraine’ party and commander of Azov battalion. Both the party and battalion are part of Ukraine’s Social-National Assembly: a coalition of neo-Nazi groups. Wikipedia says: “Both the “Patriot of Ukraine” and the S.N.A. engage in political violence against minorities and their political opponents.” You know who else had paramilitary wings for such purposes? Hitler. Biletsky was recently awarded a medal by President Poroshenko for the role he has played in the uprising in the East of the country. The volunteer battalions have been accused by Amnesty International of starving civilians by preventing access to aid, as well as “ISIS style” atrocities, such as beheadings.

Biletsky’s essay explaining his ideology first appeared at WotanJugend (The Hammer of National-Socialism).

 

Social Nationalism is based on a set of principles that clearly distinguish it from other right-wing movements. This is a peculiar triad: sociality, racialism, and great-powerness.
Sociality

The principle of sociality implies our complete negation of democracy and liberalism, which fractionize the nation into isolated units and result in power of the gray crowd over the outstanding personalities (ochlocracy, mob rule).

Instead, we put forward the idea of ​​national solidarity, natural hierarchy and discipline, as the basis of our new society.

Not “democratic vote” of the crowd that can not cope with its own life, not mentioning life of the state, but natural selection of the best representatives of the nation – born chiefs-leaders.

Anyone who believes that such a system of government is unacceptable, should think whether modern system of government is acceptable, in which a prostitute and an academician have equal voting rights, where a degraded addict or a pederast are valued in the elections the same as the commander of a tank division.
People by nature are born with different abilities and capabilities, that’s why it is a great fortune for every person to find his place in the national hierarchy and conscientiously fulfill his vital tasks.
Racialism

If Ukrainian spirituality, culture and language are unique, it is only because our racial nature is unique. If Ukraine is a paradise on earth, it is only because our race turned her into it.

Accordingly, treatment of our national body should start with a racial cleaning of the nation. And then in the healthy racial body will revive the healthy national spirit, and with it culture, language and everything else.

Apart from the question of purity, we must also pay attention to the question of the value of race. Ukrainians are a part (and one of the largest and the most qualitative) of European white race.

Race-creator of a great civilization, the biggest human achievements. The historical mission of our nation in this critical time is to head and lead the white peoples of the whole world in the last crusade for their existence. Crusade against Semite-led subhumanity.
Great-Powerness

Thousands of times we heard moanings of pseudo-nationalists about the oppression of us by Poles and Moscow, their curses against empires.

Social Nationalism is not such, it claims – if we are strong, we will take all that is rightfully ours, and even a little more, we will build our superpower-empire – Great Ukraine, which will be a legitimate successor of the Scythian and Kyivan-Ruthenian empires.

If we are weak, then our place is among the conquered dying peoples. Because that is nature! The choice is ours!

Thus, Social Nationalism raises on a shield all the ancient Ukrainian Aryan values ​​forgotten in today’s society.

Only their revival and bringing to life by a group of fanatical fighters may lead to the final victory of European civilization in the world struggle.

Here we stand and we cannot do otherwise!

Western Media’s Ukraine Narrative Continuing to Strain Credibility

tumblr_n20u1tRhSn1r55d2io1_500

It seems that there are no lengths the Western press will not go to in order to wage their propaganda war against Putin’s Russia. The Guardian’s Moscow correspondent, Shaun Walker, is suggesting that Russia’s current economic woes may result in a ‘palace coup’ – as the country’s elites see their fortunes decline. Walker says:

Falling oil prices have combined with western sanctions to create the worst economic crisis of Putin’s 15 years in power. With oil revenues tailing off sharply, on the one hand it will expose how little has been done to diversify the Russian economy during the boom years, while on the other the amount of money to share among the group of billionaires around Putin will shrink dramatically.

Part of the rationale behind western sanctions against people in Putin’s inner circle was to harm them and prompt them to pressure the leader. If the economic situation continues to deteriorate, and the political turmoil continues, one school of thought suggests Putin could be in trouble from within his own inner circle.

Most Russian officials feel the west is to blame for apparently “instigating” the Maidan protests in Kiev, but many are privately uneasy at the way Putin responded. For those in the inner circle, sanctions have in some cases meant losing business, property and travel opportunities in the west. Those affected have been falling over themselves to insist publicly that their personal pain is a small price to pay for the revival of a Great Russia, but what they think in private may be another matter. Even among those ideologically in tandem with Putin, if their vast wealth begins to be threatened their loyalty may waver.

Why the Russian oil crash could threaten Putin with a palace coup

Basically his entire premise is based upon what Russia’s oligarchs *might* be thinking; that while they publicly profess their loyalty to the Kremlin, secretly they may think something completely different. Pretty poor journalism for a Pulitzer Prize winning publication.

Most shameless however, is the continued insistence that ‘the west’ did not instigate the Maidan protests and subsequent coup. It is quite insane, that these so-called journalists act as though the mere idea that the Kiev colour revolution was planned from the American embassy is something to be ridiculed; that such thoughts can only derive from the minds of paranoid conspiracy theorists. So hard are the media trying to push this narrative, that op-eds are published stating that anyone who dares to say otherwise, has to be receiving payment to do so. This editorial by Nick Cohen is a good example:

Vladimir Putin is the world’s corrupt policeman. He finds the seediness in every country and nurtures it. On some occasions, he exploits cynicism and paranoia at once; on others, he banks it for later use. Often he appears to fan corruption for the hell of it because that is all he knows how to do.

The posters appearing on British advertising hoardings promoting his propaganda channel give a notion of the scale of his effort. His underlings have rebranded his Russia Today station “RT” – in the hope that its dumb viewers will not realise that they are watching a channel whose political line follows the Kremlin line with puppyish eagerness.

While reputable news organisations from the BBC to the New York Times fire news reporters who try, however inadequately, to tell the truth, Russia Today has extended its reach. Putin is about to increase its $300m budget by 40%. Its resources will soon compare with Fox News. But while Fox serves the peculiar tastes of the American right, Russia Today has global ambitions. The channel broadcasts in English, Arabic and Spanish and can reach 600 million people. It claims to have surpassed a billion hits on YouTube, and will add German- and French-language channels. For the supposedly pariah leader of a country whose population is collapsing and mafia economy stagnating, Putin has the best publicity money can buy.

Anyone who writes critically about him soon learns the price of lese majeste. BuzzFeed revealed that state-sponsored Russian trolls maintain a Stakhanovite regime of tweeting and commenting on hostile news pieces as they spread the Kremlin’s message across the web. (Hello down there in the comments, by the way. Hope the sanctions aren’t hurting the pay cheques.)

Russia Today: why western cynics lap up Putin’s TV poison

Such pompous commentary reads like an act of frustration, and insulting your readership in this manner will only turn people away. However this is the absurd level that the British press are sinking to, in a desperate attempt to win the information war over Ukraine. Unfortunately, they are tying themselves in knots in the process, as a piece from ten years ago on Kiev’s Orange Revolution could easily be mistaken for a description of the 2013-14 Maidan.

With their websites and stickers, their pranks and slogans aimed at banishing widespread fear of a corrupt regime, the democracy guerrillas of the Ukrainian Pora youth movement have already notched up a famous victory – whatever the outcome of the dangerous stand-off in Kiev.

Ukraine, traditionally passive in its politics, has been mobilised by the young democracy activists and will never be the same again.

But while the gains of the orange-bedecked “chestnut revolution” are Ukraine’s, the campaign is an American creation, a sophisticated and brilliantly conceived exercise in western branding and mass marketing that, in four countries in four years, has been used to try to salvage rigged elections and topple unsavoury regimes.

Funded and organised by the US government, deploying US consultancies, pollsters, diplomats, the two big American parties and US non-government organisations, the campaign was first used in Europe in Belgrade in 2000 to beat Slobodan Milosevic at the ballot box.

Richard Miles, the US ambassador in Belgrade, played a key role. And by last year, as US ambassador in Tbilisi, he repeated the trick in Georgia, coaching Mikhail Saakashvili in how to bring down Eduard Shevardnadze.

Ten months after the success in Belgrade, the US ambassador in Minsk, Michael Kozak, a veteran of similar operations in central America, notably in Nicaragua, organised a near identical campaign to try to defeat the Belarus hardman, Alexander Lukashenko.

If the events in Kiev vindicate the US in its strategies for helping other people win elections and take power from anti-democratic regimes, it is certain to try to repeat the exercise elsewhere in the post-Soviet world.

The places to watch are Moldova and the authoritarian countries of central Asia.

US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev *

Incidentally, Moldova’s pro-Russian party was barred from taking part in the election that took place a few weeks ago, on account of receiving money from a foreign country – a bizarre turn of events considering all the above mentioned US-funded parties in Eastern Europe over the last decade. However this outcome was considered a resounding success for the EU. It is also worth mentioning that the US Congress’s Ukraine Freedom bill includes clauses that essentially threaten to impose sanctions if Russia dares to make closer economic ties with countries in central Asia; these nations are likely to be next in line for a dose of Washington’s regime change.

Returning to the Guardian: the difference in approach between 2004 and 2014 leads one to wonder what exactly has changed in this period, and why the huge cover-up? How does Shawn Walker sleep at night, knowing that he’s complicit in the mass-murder of ethnic Russians by neo-nazi battalions?

Photos: Kiev Police Clash with Far-Right Nationalists

Several clashes have erupted this week between police  and far-right nationalists in Kiev. Members of the Svoboda and Right Sector parties, as well as Azov battalion militants, marched through the Ukrainian capital to Independence Square on Tuesday to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UIA).

kiev2

President Petro Poroshenko announced the creation of ‘Defender of the Nation Day’ annual public holiday on Tuesday (October 14), thus dissolving the existing  ‘Defender of the Motherland Day’ that usually occurs on February 23 in both Ukraine and Russia; similar holidays are held on various dates in other ex-Soviet nations.

1065330

Kiev’s decision to move the holiday to coincide with the UPA’s anniversary is a bold statement: the UIA were a Ukrainian nationalist paramilitary group whom fought alongside the Nazis against the Russian army in World War II. The group committed a number of horrific war crimes during their existence; massacring Poles and Ukrainian Jews. Members planned to win Ukraine with support from Germans and physically eliminate all non-Ukrainians; their slogan was “Ukraine only for Ukrainians”.

1065334

UIA groups fought against Soviet and Polish underground resistance organization members in 1943-44. Following the end of the war and when the Soviet rule was restored in Ukraine, the UIA organized attacks against Soviet servicemen, law-enforcement authorities, Soviet officials and others who came from the “east”.

1061908

After parliament failed to pass a bill that would formally recognise the UIA as war heroes on – who fought for Ukrainian independence during WWII – riots broke out outside the building. This was the seventh time parliament speaker Olexandr Turchynov, in violation of established procedures,  put this issue to a vote -and each time the motion failed to score the required 226 votes. Following this decision, groups of masked men proceeded to throw bricks, smoke bombs and explosive devices at policemen on duty at the parliament – leading the session to be terminated.

The clashes have also been attributed to another bill that was passed on Tuesday – a law granting self-rule status to the Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the east for three years – part of a peace deal brokered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. It seems ironic that these neo-nazi groups want to both celebrate those who fought for Ukraine’s independence, whilst also quelling notions of separatism in the east. What does seem to be fueling both of these issues is extreme Russophobia, which is very worrying indeed. It is unfortunate that most of western Europe has chosen to encourage this growing prejudice and cozy up with Washington, rather than admit that Russia was right.
