By 2 May, the Antimaidan protests lost all momentum. Meanwhile, in Donetsk, the Ukrainian state has already collapsed. The 2 May attack was planned for months to serve as a warning to other pro-Russian, Antimaidan protesters. The Ukrainian military campaign in the Donbass was to be the second stage of the Maidan bloody response, and Crimea was to come third… but something did not go as planned…
Back in January, the head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar Nation, (a self-appointed organisation that claims to represent the Crimean Tatar people and is banned in the Russian Federation for anti-Russian activity) Refat Chubarov claimed back in January they will attempt to break into Crimea through the force of numbers.
Chubarov said the avantgard of the march of the Tatars will be formed by “members of the Mejlis, parliamentarians and Western partners.”
You see the West has a little bit of a problem. In 2014, the West supported a violent coup d’état by the hands of radical nationalists. The new regime in Ukraine employed literal Neonazis to repress the pro-Russian segment of the Ukrainian society. The war in Eastern Ukraine attracted people from around the World, who belong to the Neonazi international. Ukraine has become a bit of an Afghanistan of Neonaziism, and from time to time, the West suffers a blowback in the form of far right terrorism.
At the end of the day, the Western elites don’t bother about few “aroused hotheads”. The Neonazis in Ukraine perform a valuable function of driving underground whatever pro-Russian sentiment there is.
Hence, we see articles such as this one. On the pages of the Atlantic Council, Anton Shekhovtsov tries to say that the battalion Azov is not really Neonazi because they are an official military unit and have more recently formed a civilian wing.
Shekhovtsov bills himself as an expert on far right movements and last I heard, he was residing in Norway. Nevertheless, he has some interesting past. Turns out he was an Eurasianist:
Back in the mid-2000s, he was involved with the International Eurasian Movement’s youth wing in Crimea, when it was part of Ukraine. Known as the “Eurasian Youth Union” (ECM in Russian), it’s a right-wing organization which believes in a “Greater Russia” and largely follows the teachings of the aforementioned Dugin.
As you probably may have heard, an ally of Alexey Navalny, Ruslan Shaveddinov, was grabbed by the military, accused of dodging the draft, and sent over to Novaya Zemlya, an island in the Arctic to do his service…
And here is why I don’t give a fuck. Ruslan is a supporter of violent neonazis in Ukraine…
I have found his tweets:
In the wake of Russian intervention in Crimea, the Russian pro-Western opposition organised a confused and cringy protest in support of the nationalist regime in Kiev.
In fact only marginals in Moscow supported the Kiev regime…
“Glory to Ukraine!” is a nazi slogan. I have covered this here before.
Shaveddinov is making jokes about the tragedy of 2 May 2014, when banderovite yobs literally burned alive people in Odessa.
Polina Nemirovskaya, who works for Khodorkovsky’s Open Russia, say’s one ought not to mourn the people that burned alive in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa because these “vatniks” (a mocking term for pro-Russian, and pro-Putin people) weren’t actually from Odessa, which is not true.
Ruslan made this Tweet on the day of the tragedy of 2 May simply regurgitating Ukrainian nazi propaganda. Also note that the protests in Odessa did not carry a separatist message, so Odessa People’s Republic was not on the agenda.
Leftist activist,Sergey Udaltsov told to go fuck himself by Ruslan.
“Donbass” was one of the nazi militias that went to suppress the aspirations of the Donbass people.
I guess they celebrated the victory of the Maidan in Kiev, given the date.
Yesterday, the Ukrainian parliament refused to set up a committee to investigate the mass killing in Odessa on 2 May 2014. From Ukraina.ru
The former Minister of Justice of Ukraine, Elena Lukash thinks the refusal of the parliamentarians from the “Servant of the People” party to set up a committee to investigate the Odessa tragedy amounts to a political cover up of a mass execution.
On 2 May 2014, 42 people were burned alive in the House of the Trade Unions in Odessa.
The guilty in this execution have not yet been punished.
On the anniversary of the tragedy, Zelensky did not find words of pity.
Today, the parliamentary majority was afraid to create a committee to investigate this issue.
I consider this a political complicity, a political cover up of the guilty in mass execution of the people. They are one blood. That’s all from me.
