Lybov Sobol’s Husband and Brother are Ukrnazi and Maidan Supporters

Almost everyday I find yet another Ukraine link in the non-system opposition in Russia. This time at the very heart of the action. See my other recent posts, about Ruslan Shavetdinnov, Ilya Novikov, Kirill Naumov, and Vladimir Shipitsyn

Apart from Ruslan Shavetdinnov, whose case has been widely reported by the likes of the Washington funded RFE/RL, the rest of the individuals I have covered are low level activists really. This time, I discovered the brother and husband of Lyubov Sobol, the Moscow resident activist, and close Navalny comrade.

The information is now relatively dated, it actually comes from 2016 but it has resurfaced recently, and it is worth reposing here because it adds to the series I was running.

It turns out, the brother of Lyubov Sobol, Grigory Musatov took active part in the Euromaidan.

A rare sight, the Hrushevsky street is without Molotow cocktails. What a mess!

Her husband, Sergey Mokhov is not far off:

Anton Shekhovtsov Denies his Duginist Past and Makes Apologetics for Neonazis in the Atlantic Council

It would not be the first time Western funded think tanks try to white wash Naziism in Ukraine..

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.

From RT

It would seem Anton has followed the path of many far right Ukrainians from the Eastern regions. There was clearly more money in being a Western NGO employee, and working for the West and the Ukrainian powers that be. Remember, the leader of Azov, Biletsky once called for the creation of a union with Russia. And then he was bought by Avakov and now is singing a different tune.

Well, this Shekhovtsov character appears to have an even darker side. In 2014 he was among those that cheered the death of people, who were burned alive in Odessa on 2 May. He called them vermin…

Here is a closeup:

He calls the RT article about him “a slander”…

This Shekhovtsov guy is a sleaze, who can’t own up to his past, cheers the deaths of people killed in Odessa on 2 May 2014, and makes apologetics for Neonaziism…

A Russian Citizen who Fought in the Ranks of the Azov Battalion Found With a Slit Throat in Vinnytsia

Karma caught up with him…

Out of the endless necrologues of Ukraine. 36 year old Maksim Trikoza aka “Voidan” was found with knife wounds near the place he lived in Vinnytsia. He was a Russian citizen, who considered himself ethnic Ukrainian, and joined the ranks of Azov after the war broke out in the Donbass. 213495_800.jpg

Ukrainian Neonazis Help out at Hong Kong Riots

After destroying their own country, Ukrainian neonazis from the Azov battalion have relocated to Hong Kong to help destroy that city too…

Earlier this year, an initiative of US Congressmen wanted to designate Azov as a white supremacist terrorist group. What happened? Here we see the neonazis helping out at US inspired and supported riots in HK.

Read my other posts on the Hong Kong Ukraine connection.

Update:

The Hong Kong rioters tried to claim that these are not really neonazi but rather Slavic pagans, or whatever. And claims of Naziism in Ukraine are all but Kremlin propaganda, which is a talking point learned from their American handlers…

I just realised that the hero of this post Serhii Philimonov was already featured on this blog several months ago when he gave lectures on street protests in Kiev…
