How the EU makes Apologetics for Naziism

The EU decided to use my taxes to save me and my fellow Europeans from nefarious disinformation, and fails…

I have come across an online project called “EU vs. Disinfo” of the European External Action Service East Stratcom Task Force. I was very much interested in what they have to say. I found there a collection of fabrications that put Russian media to shame but I also found a curious urge to protect the post-Maidan regime from accusations that are essentially true.

The project wants to claim the accusation that the slogan: “Slava Ukrayini! Heroyim Slava!”, that is “Glory to Ukraine! Glory to Heroes!” has Nazi origins is wrong…

They say the origin of the “disinformation” is the Russian evening news programme “Vesti”, on the First Channel…

They continue to give some lame arguments as to why Vesti is wrong. I discuss everything below…

The slogan appeared in the 1930’s and was modelled on the German slogan: “Heil Hitler! Sieg Heil!” that is: “Hail Hitler! Hail Victory!”. In 1939, OUN made it official at a conference in Rome. It should be noted that the Italians, and the Croatians had similar slogans. The OUN were seeing themselves as a part of the fascist international. They were literally fascist and proud of it.

The “historian” from the Catholic University in Lvov makes an absolutely lame attempt to divorce the slogan from its origins. Imagine the Germans would stage a protest against the Christian and Social Democrat regime, and in the process would resurrect the “Heil Hitler! Sieg Heil!”, and then they would seize power and make it an official slogan of the military. This is essentially what happened in Ukraine. The slogan was introduced on the Maidan by the nationalists. Andreas Umland mentions the slogan began actively being used in Ukraine by Oleh Tyahnybok of the Svoboda Party.

So, the Slogan was created by Nazis, and introduced to Ukraine by Nazis, introduced to the Maidan by the Nazis. The EU hacks want to tell me everyone needs to be goose stepping, or what?

I have discussed the “poor ratings” on this blog before. The argument is easily dismissed by the following argument. Ukraine is a large country, and you need a lot of money to achieve electoral success. This causes the political landscape to be dominated by oligarch run political projects. If you want to win in elections, you need to join one of these groups. Boryslav Bereza is a good example of a person from “Right Sector” who is now a parliamentarian. The current Rada is swarming with people, who have more or less adopted the nationalist ideology.

Russia has a right to be concerned about a radical nationalist regime on her border, so I don’t get what these EU hacks are moaning about?
