Antisemitic Christmas Offer

While in the West, Jon Stewart finds Jews in the goblins of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, in Ukraine you can get genuine antisemitic literature in online shops…

In his recent video, Anatoly Shariy mentions that the owner of the shop above, “Epicentr” is certain Galina Gerega, one of the richest people in Ukraine, who is very close to president, Zelensky.

You can get these three titles shipped for a price of 1499 HRN, with a discount of 500 HRN. The International Jew by Henry Ford, Mein Kampf of Adolf Hitler, and a book by Orey Volost called the Rat People. Orey Volost is a pseudonym of an anonymous author, the author likely hails from the Slavic neopagan, and neonazi scene judging by the ancient Slavic sounding pseudonym. The rat people are of course, the Jews.

What I find funny is that none of the titles featured are written in Ukrainian. Distribution of such material may be breaking several Ukrainian laws. As you can see, the people in Ukraine wipe their ass with the laws.

I Guess This is Why Republika Srpska Wants out of Bosnia

The school in Gorazde, Bosnia, previously named Nikola Tesla, a scientist, changed it`s name to Husein Djozo, member of 13th Handžar Division organized by the Waffen SS where he served as imam of 28 regiments, and occasionally as divisional imam. He openly wrote a letter to Himmler stating the readiness of many soldiers to lay down their lives for Adolf Hitler: “I consider it my duty to express my gratitude to the Reichführer on behalf of divisional imams and hundreds and thousands of poor people in Bosnia.”

I found this in the comments on YouTube. This was a total Svidomite move there. Nikola Tesla was a Serb and he had to go, and they have chosen a total ghoul in his stead, wonderful. This has everything.

The US Department of Justice is Suddenly Interested in War Crimes Committed by Nazis in Donbas

From Buzzfeed. There aren’t any Nazis in Ukraine remember that?

The probe involves seven men but is centered on former Army soldier Craig Lang, who is separately wanted in connection with a double killing in Florida and is fighting extradition from Kyiv.

He (Craig Lang) first came in 2015 to fight with a far-right paramilitary unit, defending the country from Russia-backed forces. And he believed that if he were extradited back to the US, he could face war crimes charges.

“Any separatist or Russian soldier that I have killed would be a murder charge” in the US, Lang, 31, said in his gruff North Carolina drawl. “Understand that some of my fellow combatants are under investigation by the FBI for war crimes.”

It would be extremely rare for the US government to investigate its own citizens for alleged war crimes committed on foreign soil — no one, experts say, has ever been prosecuted, let alone convicted, under the US War Crimes Act. 

But now, BuzzFeed News can reveal that the Department of Justice and the FBI have in fact taken the extraordinary step of investigating a group of seven American fighters, including Lang, under the federal war crimes statute. Authorities suspect that while in eastern Ukraine, Lang and other members of the group allegedly took noncombatants as prisoners, beat them with their fists, kicked them, clobbered them with a sock filled with stones, and held them underwater.

You know, there are people, who have been talking about this for years hoping somebody in the West will listen.

The war crimes investigation was detailed in a DOJ appeal for assistance sent to the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine in 2018 along with two Ukrainian documents responding to the appeal the following year. The documents were leaked to an obscure pro-Russian website. BuzzFeed News reviewed and authenticated the documents and interviewed six people, in Kyiv and stateside, with direct knowledge of the US investigation. They include a top Ukrainian law enforcement official; a former Ukrainian National Police official who was involved in gathering information to fulfill the US appeal; and two other people who have assisted the FBI and spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.

That obscure pro-Russian website is UkrLeaks. The owner, Vasily Prozorov, according to my knowledge, was an agent of one of the Ukrainian secret services, who defected to Russia. He has taken many secret documents with him, The man also has a YouTube presence.

BuzzFeed News also interviewed Dalton Kennedy of North Carolina and David Kleman of Georgia, both 24, who had interviews with federal agents and provided proof of those encounters. They, along with Quinn Rickert, 27, of Illinois; Santi Pirtle, 30, of California; Brian Boyenger, 33, of North Carolina; and David Plaster, 37, of Missouri were investigated by the DOJ and FBI in the probe. When they arrived in Ukraine, Lang, Rickert, and Pirtle allegedly joined Right Sector, a volunteer far-right nationalist group that formed in November 2013 and later created a paramilitary force to respond to Russia’s invasion of eastern Ukraine in spring 2014. Human rights groups have accused Right Sector fighters of abusing and torturing civilians and combatants.

The DOJ — based on video and photo evidence, as well as interviews with some of Lang’s fellow American fighters — says in the documents that Lang was the main instigator of the alleged torture of detainees in eastern Ukraine. In April, BuzzFeed News detailed how Lang became increasingly radicalized while fighting in Ukraine and had ties to white supremacists. He now resides with his Ukrainian partner and their child in Kyiv. He was detained by Ukrainian border guards in August 2019, wears an ankle monitor, and is banned from leaving the country while he fights extradition to Fort Myers to face trial in the 2018 killings of Deana and Serafin “Danny” Lorenzo in Florida. Authorities allege that Lang and another former Army soldier who fought with Right Sector in Ukraine lured the couple to a meeting to buy guns — but instead ambushed them and robbed them of $3,000, used to fund Lang’s foreign fighting adventures.

The DOJ appeal doesn’t make clear whether US authorities had interviewed any alleged victims in Ukraine or confirmed that anyone was killed. But based on the evidence gathered, the DOJ appeal says, the Americans “allegedly committed or participated in torture, cruel or inhuman treatment or murder of persons who did not take (or stopped taking) an active part in hostilities and (or) intentionally inflicted grievous bodily harm on them.”

Roughly 40 other Americans have fought on the Ukrainian side, according to BuzzFeed News’ reporting and expert research. Many are veterans or men who had hoped to join the US military but couldn’t, and wanted to help a democratic ally in its fight against Russia’s aggressive authoritarianism. Others are opportunists who see a shot at a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and a fresh start. And several are combat enthusiasts who hop from war to war

…some are far-right extremists who have set their gaze on Ukraine, a place that has become a destination and training ground for such types in the West. As far-right extremism has risen in the US, so has the interest among American white supremacists in militarized right-wing Ukrainian groups that have had success in growing and mainstreaming their organizations and movements. They include violent neo-Nazis like those from the Rise Above Movement who have gone to Ukraine to meet and train with some of the groups — and then export what they learned to the US.

Unlike Buzzfeed, I personally think that most Westerners, who went to fight for Ukraine were motivated by radical nationalism, or were simply soldiers for hire. I do not think that many are democracy fetishists, who came to help Ukraine from Putler. I mean, the vast majority of Ukrainian volunteer battalions were nazi outfits.

That they were involved in banditry is a common knowledge in interested circles.

Ukraine’s Problem is That the Taliban Seized Power There Already in 2014

Village boys have come to a city, received machine guns and…

Ukraine’s problem is that the Taliban seized power there already in 2014. Village boys, conservative and archaic have to come the city and seized it.

After that, they received guns and went on to fight against other cities.

We were living under a Taliban for the last 7 years.

Translated from here. Meanwhile, there is jubilation in Azov over the Taliban victory…

Azov Battalion Premises Raided in Kharkov

Earlier this summer, the immortal minister of the the interior, Arsen Avakov was dismissed from his post, and it seems the Azovites have lost their cover.

The SBU raided Azov premises in Kharkov recently, and one can say about time. The Azov was not only a heaven for neonazis, it is a criminal organization that preys on local businessmen, extorting racket money.

It was a matter of time before the Nazis of Azov met the fist of the government. They were simply too odious. Their patron Avakov has fled to Italy. This is also the end of such post-Maidan stars such as Anton Herashchenko and Zoryan Shkiryak.

Literally and end of a period. However, national chauvinism and radical nationalism is not going anywhere with the removal of Avakov and his neonazis. Unfortunately!

Based on information mentioned here.

Umland Says Nazis in Ukraine are Russian Disinformation

In a Russian language article by Andreas Umland I received in mail today, the latter tries to make the argument that the National Interest columnist, Ted Galen Carpenter is somehow wrong and under the influence of Russian propaganda when he says that Ukraine is a purveyor of radical nationalism. He brings forth the lame argument about electoral success of nationalist parties in Ukraine.

I have already debunked this argument on this blog. The issue boils down to Ukraine’s geography. Ukraine is the largest country in Europe, with a population around 30 million and many diverse regions. Only large oligarch funded projects score in such an environment. But there are outright radical nationalists in big oligarchical project too, and they are also embedded among the siloviks. They may not even be popular among the general population but they influence the cultural policy and have military units and guns. Radical nationalism, neonazism feels at home in Ukraine. And if the West does not keep an eye on Ukraine, sooner or later neonazis will bite back from Ukraine. Many researchers in the far right note the connection between neonazis in the West and their counterparts in Ukraine. Ukraine provides a safe haven for propaganda, merchandise sale and military training for whoever is willing to swear loyalty to Ukraine.

Soros Fund, the Helsinki Committee, and Likely the US Embassy too, All Demanded the Release of Neonazi Serhiy Sternenko

I must say I haven’t followed the Sternenko case since this post, and I made a mistake because today I realised just how much international support that little twerp received from a variety of international organisations…

Sternenko is the Odessa leader of the Right Sector, an umbrella organisation uniting a variety of radical nationalist and Neonazi outfits. Sternenko is a violent Neonazi, who is accused of murdering an unarmed person in Odessa and wounding another. Sternenko says he was defending himself from an assassination attempt but there are other opinions on the matter. Stalker Zone has a lot of information in English regarding Sternenko:

At the moment we can say the following: Sergey Sternenko came back home with a girl. He had a verbal conflict with two unknown guys a block before. This didn’t result in a fight. In front of the house the guys caught up with him and tried to sort things out again. The guys weren’t armed. Sternenko pulled out a knife and hit the first one twice, then the other guy. After that the guys started running away – both were seriously wounded. One inhabitant of Odessa – 1988 year of birth – succeeded to escape, despite having received two received wounds to the stomach. The second guy, who also received two knife blows – to his hand and chest, wasn’t able to escape – Sternenko ran towards him to catch him up and, having caught him up, stabbed him two more times. This time in the stomach. The guy died from four wounds. Preliminary information says that this is pure murder, and not self-defense – the guys weren’t armed. The deceased – named Ivan – served in the 25th airborne brigade in the past. The one who managed to run away already said that they and his killed friend didn’t know Sternenko earlier. I.e., there is no ideological or political background to this crime,” explained the source of “Strana” in the Odessa police.

If he was a target of assassination, Sternenko would be dead like Buzyna, who was a target of assassination. He is also accused of abducting a man and torturing him. For the latter case he was recently sentenced to 7 years and three months. Sternenko says he was arresting an anti-Maidan activist, who was on his way to Kiev to beat up the protesters at the Maidan. It is unclear what right did Sternenko as a Right Sector thug have to arrest anyone?

However, the court proceedings began to be interfered with by a variety of international organisations that are trying to make Sternenko into an unjustly persecuted anti-corruption activist. (all of them are activists, Protasevych was also just a journalist and an activist) Several months ago, I reported that the head of the International Renaissance Fund in Ukraine, a George Soros related outfit, Oleksandr Sushko asked whether it is possible to enact sanctions against the judges involved in the Stenenko case.

But this high level support did not end there. The Netherlands Helsinki Committee outdid itself:

On 23 February 2021, anti-corruption activist and coordinator of NGO Nebayduzhi, Serhiy Sternenko, was sentenced to 7 years and 3 months in prison and saw half of his property confiscated following what many believe was a politically-motivated investigation and court case dating back to 2015.

Serhiy Sternenko has ardently fought against corruption in Ukraine, most recently by campaigning against illegal construction projects and exposing corruption including around allegations against the Odesa mayor, Hennadiy Trukhanov, and his associates. Sternenko’s efforts have also included opposing pro-Russian separatist actions in Odesa in 2014-2015 and calling for the cancellation of the concerts of a number of Russian celebrities who have been vocally supportive of the illegal annexation of Crimea and conflict-affected Donbas.

With the verdict of 23 February, Sternenko was convicted for the alleged abduction of a local Odesa functionary, Serhiy Shcherbych, and for the alleged theft of UAH 300 (at the time, the equivalent of less than 15 EUR) from him in 2015 — both accusations Sternenko denies. Despite the expiration of the statute of limitations for the alleged abduction, the judge’s ruling convicted Sternenko of both charges, a clear infringement of both the criminal code and of Sternenko’s fair trial rights.

While the prison sentence imposed on Sternenko was solely based on the theft charge – correctly taking into account the inapplicability of the charge of adduction, yet not clearing Sternenko’s criminal record of that charge – there is real concern about its proportionality. For example, while the murderers of another activist from Kherson, Kateryna Handziuk, received sentences from 3 to 6 years, Sternenko’s sentencing to more than 7 years imprisonment leads credence to the belief of many that the entire proceedings were politically motivated, and are meant to send a chilling message to any and all who oppose corruption in Ukraine.

The Netherlands Helsinki Committee and ZMINA Human Rights Centre remain concerned about the verdict and sentencing, and call on the Ukrainian authorities to ensure that Sternenko’s fair trials are respected throughout the appeal process (begun on 5 March 2021), and to seek proportionate alternatives to his current terms of detention.

Some observers view this case as yet another example of a systemic crisis occurring among the Ukrainian judiciary and law enforcement which must be urgently addressed with much-needed reform. For example, the Public Council of Integrity had previously concluded that the judge assigned to Sternenko’s case has not met the criteria of integrity and professional ethics, which raises questions about his impartiality.

The unusual personal involvement of the Prosecutor General, Iryna Venediktova, and the Minister of Interior Affairs, Arsen Avakov, directly in the case has also been called into question – not least by Viktor Trepak, who served as a deputy to the previous Prosecutor General, and has stated that Ms. Venediktova’s insistence upon bringing charges against Sternenko, is extremely concerning.

In protest of the trial outcome, people took the streets in Kyiv directly following the verdict in solidarity with Sternenko. However, resulting clashes between the peaceful protestors and the police led to several injuries as the police employed disproportionate force, including tear gas and smoke bombs. Moreover, at least 24 people were unlawfully detained, although they were subsequently released later that day.

But that did not stop the outcry: on 27 February, more than 10.000 people took part in a peaceful protest, co-organised by ZMINA Human Rights Center and five other organisations, and on 20 March, more than 1.000 people gathered before the President’s Office, to protest Stenenko’s conviction. While a handful of attendees vandalized the building with paint or broke windows during the protest on 20 March, such acts of hooliganism are now being used to falsely frame peaceful protestors who were not involved in those actions, such as environmental activist, Roman Ratushny.

What if Neonazis took to the streets and attacked and vandalised the seat of the government in the Netherlands? Unthinkable! But here the Netherlands Helsinki Committee promotes the values of street thugs pressuring the president. Ukraine must be the only country in Europe where forces deemed far right get this much support from the government and assorted variety of human rights organisations.

But it would seem there are other friends of Sternenko. Stalker Zone further reports rumour has it Sternenko was in contact with the US Embassy:

“What happened to Sternenko? Why was he removed from suspicion by the Prosecutor General himself, admitting that he personally met the murderer of someone?

According to one possibility the new authorities are afraid to anger ‘activists’. The second possibility — it was agreed in advance that Sternenko won’t participate in the Steinmeier-Maidan.

The third possibility (there is informal talk about this in ‘Servant of the People’) is that Sternenko’s contact with the American Embassy worked.

Although, it may well be that all three possibilities are at work — out of fear there was a deal, and in addition the US Embassy called.

But the result is obvious. For the time being. But the fight continues. We won’t become demoralised.”

The former Prime Minister of Ukraine, Nikolay Azarov, said on RT that it was the Depute Chief of Mission, Kristina Kvien, who was very active in the release of Sternenko. This is what actually made me research this twerp further.

PS: Sternenko lawyer is Masi Nayyem, who recently called for war with Russia. Sternenko likes wearing clothing of the Svastone brand. If Svastone sounds like swastika to you, you are not mistaken, the brand uses a stylised swastika as a label.

If you go to the Svastone website, you will see them sell music albums by Sokyra Peruna (the axe of Perun, Perun is the chief god of the Slavic pantheon). The New Republic says the brand belongs to one of the band members. This is from their Ukrainian language Wikipedia:

I don’t even know whether this image is legal in the Czech Republic

I do not think there can be any illusions about Sokyra Peruna, Svastone, and the subculture they belong to. And I would like to just ask, why do Western institutions support Nazis?

More Info on Protosevych’s Involvement in the Donbas War

Anatoly Shariy has dug out an old article, which is an interview with a soldier by the code name “Kim”, who served in the Pahonia platoon, a Belarussian unit, that looks very much like Roman Protosevych, who was arrested in Minsk few days ago…

From the article

Protasevych told about first shooting at a man. “It is you or me, I don’t regret anything.” Lukashenko said in front of Belarussian parliamentarians that Protasevych is guilty of war crimes committed in the Donbas.

See my main post on Protasevych

Update: Another photo has surfaced.

The guy in glasses is identified as Belorussian, Stanislav Goncharov. He served in Azov between 2014-16. Goncharov is now in Belarussian prison but not for being a member of the Azov and fighting in the Donbas. His sentence is for hate speech, robbery, and pornography.

Update 2: Protasevych in a swastika themed t-shirt.

If Protasevych was a Western Journalist Posing in Azov Uniform That Would be the End of his Career

Imagine for a minute, a Western correspondent would pose for a cover in an uniform of an openly neo-Nazi paramilitary unit that is listed as a hate group by many Western governments and institutions. You will never see that! But with Eastern Slavs anything goes as long as they oppose Lukashenko and Putin.

Also, I do not get that the garden variety of demshiza, be it among Russian liberals, in the Belarusian opposition, the Western handlers of this twerp, did not see this. It is not like he made any secret of his involvement with Neonazis.

Westerners reading this, would you like anyone like this to come to power in your country? Why do you want the same for Belarus?

Also, clueless Westerners that are screeching about a “journalist” being abducted. NEXTA was not just a news site, it coordinated protests, called for killing cops, and doxed the cops. I know, the goals justify the means…

Update: The Western press again tries to hush up the topic of Nazis in Ukraine.

Number of Blue Checkmarks, and other guardians of the narrative, have immediately tried to call the reports about Protasevych’s Azov engagement a disinformation. But his involvement with the Neonazis is now solidly established.

Hat tip: Mark Ames Fuck me, the State Department has literally employed a Neonazi, and now we should be concerned about a character assassination. Hey Muricans, do not support Nazis and we will have nothing to talk about.
