New Israel in Ukraine

The idea of a new Jewish state in Ukraine has been around for a while now. I have heard it for the first time like 5 years ago from Igor Berkut. I can’t find his video about a New Jerusalem on YouTube. I guess this is because we have freedom of speech in the West. But I stumbled across a commenter regurgitating the lines of this idea, in Czech!!!

The conspiracy theory argues that the Jews are planning Israel 2.0 in the lands of the former Khazar Kaganate. The new state should center on the lands of southern Ukraine that should have become Novorossiya. And maybe, just maybe, this is why Novorossiya was never created. My opinion is that this is actually a compelling idea. The gentleman or lady, person never knows these days, I am going to present maybe just trolling but each mention adds to the suspicion.

It looks like that almighty Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will cleanse that filth named Russia, aka Magog, as it written in the Tanakh. Especially the Cossack Orthodox muck. Ukraine is a center of Judaism (Just like Israel) to the World Jewry. Do not tease the cobra with bare legs.
Ukraine does not provoke anyone. Ukraine is defending its territory, property, people, its way of life, against a mad and insane barbarian from the East. And should the drunk Russian Ivan will be sorry if he crosses the Ukrainian border, it will be an end to Russian muzhikistan. My nickname is a Hebrew name. Ukraine is a state run by the Jews, just like Poland (Poland stronk) and the Baltic states. They are allies of Israel, USA and Britain, you don’t play with this.
Really? Why then did we build in Dnipro, the largest Jewish center Menora? According to a circus? Why in Ukraine there are the best Jewish communities and school? Is there just for fun? Ukraine is under the rule of the Jews just few years. Lot has changed in the meantime. Ukraine is an ally of Israel, Britain, USA, not of Iran, Palestinians, Russians… the main thing is that the Russians have nothing to do on the territory of Khazar judenat, it could be dangerous for them.

Guys, Kolomoysky land. Whatever. Does anyone know any other location in Ukraine where the Jews are migrating, other than Uman that is. They settle in Uman because it is close to the grave of Rabbi Nakhman. They turn the city into a massive rave on Rosh Hashanah.

UPD: I have discovered another adherent of this conspiracy theory:

Daily Reminder That Ukraine was Created out of Russia by the Enemies of Russia

Let’s zoom in:

General Hoffman rightly noted the artificiality of this project but he was wrong about it being temporary. You might say, it wasn’t temporary because it was legitimate. I am still not very certain that the creation of Ukraine reflected the needs and aspirations of the people, and was always directed from above with little regard to the real situation. Ukraine’s successive leaders haven’t treated the land as it is but as they envision it to be. The process continues and it will end badly, as it always does…

Putin Voices a Claim I was Promoting for Last Decade Through my Blogging

In his recent press conference, Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin repeated a central thesis of my old blog Austere Insomniac, and that is Ukraine was created by the Bolsheviks. He said that Ukraine was territorially created out of Russian lands by comrade Lenin. Svidomites in Ukraine went into hysteria, and have displayed their historical illiteracy, and inability to listen. I get it, the modern age is too fast and neurotic. Some, like Sternenko, of Right Sector fame, said Kievan Rus existed before Moscow was even founded. That is true, but first of all, it was Rus, and also St. Vladimir came to Kiev from Novgorod, now in the Russian Federation. Rus Began around Lake Ladoga, also in the Russian Federation. Moscow was founded by the Kievan Prince Yuri Dolgoruki. If anything, Kievan Rus only reinforces Putin’s arguments.

A more smarter answer came from Mikhalchishyn, of VO Svoboda and Azov battalion fame, he said that the founders of Ukraine were Hrushevsky, Vynichenko, Petlyura and Mikhnovsky. Very different personages to be honest, however. Let’s analyze the names. Mikhailo Hrushevsky was the president of UNR (Ukrainian People’s Republic). It should be noted here that Putin did not speak about UNR, UNR was a state in Central and Western Ukraine. Petlyura’s Directoria was also active only in Central Ukraine. The Bolsheviks in Moscow territorially formed Ukraine independent of UNR, or whatever other abortive attempts at Ukrainian statehood.

The Bolsheviks added the Black Sea Coast, Crimea, Donbas, and Halychyna, Transcarpathia, and Volhynia in the West. So it is no understatement that the Bolsheviks created Ukraine territorially. Also, the Ukrainian identity was created through the policy of Korenizatsiya. It was a nation building policy imposed by Stalin on a population that didn’t really need it in my opinion. In Austrian Halychyna, during WWI, people defining as Russians were put in concentration in camps in Thalerhof and Theresin in Bohemia and Austria. Ukraine was created through a lot of suffering and unfreedom for people that do not subscribe to the Ukrainian script. I should add that the aforementioned Hrushevsky first served the Austrian government in implementing a state policy of conversion of West Russians to Ukrainians, and the latter moved back to Ukraine, and later served Stalin. Ukraine was created through the state policy of the Bolsheviks and the Habsburgs, and in both cases this was a crime against the Russian people.

Unless Ukrainians acknowledge their own origins, they will suffer neurosis indefinitely, and will be forever trolled by the Russians. It will be an endless show of Ukrainians trying to trip over themselves in an attempt to explain their existence. This khokhlosrach will never end! Although if Ukraines was ever to calm down, the Russians are perfectly willing to accept their Ukrainian identity because at the end of the day, it is of no consequence.

Update: I should add Stalin made Ukraine a founding member of the UN, this is how much the Bolsheviks created and legitimized Ukraine. How much has any other regime done for Ukraine in comparison?

Polish Foreign Ministry Complains About the Treatment of Polish People in Ukraine

The season is over, and I have free time to dedicate to this blog again. And I would like to introduce a new thesis to this blog. “UKRAINE DOES NOT HAVE ANY FRIENDLY NEIGHBOURS”. However, Ukraine has a perfect geographical location that it absolutely does not exploit. I think we have a case of Peremoha & Zrada, they are the two sides of the karbovanets coin. While Ukraine was gifted this perfect location by fate, or Bolsheviks, the regime there chose radical nationalism and cannot make any use of the advantages Ukraine has in any way. Similarly, the system favours a narrow orientation towards the West, which makes things even more complicated. It is like having a perfect graphics card but running old drivers for it. Outdated, caveman nationalism is hampering Ukrainian relations on all fronts.

The other day, the Polish foreign ministry complained about the treatment of Poles in Ukraine. The Polish deputy of the Polish foreign minister, Szymon Szynkowski said that the Poles in Ukraine are discriminated on the basis of religion, access to education, and freedom of speech. He also mentioned that in Ukraine, people responsible for genocide of the West Ukrainian Polish population are being glorified in Ukraine. The latter has long been a major complaint of Poles towards Ukraine. However, complaints about the treatment of coethnics in Ukraine has so far been the preserve of Hungary.

You see, Ukraine lacks friendly relations with any of its neighbours, despite having a perfect geographical location that it could exploit to the fullest.

Poppycock

After the victorious Maidan, then president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko introduced a new tradition in connection with the Victory Day, which is on the level of Prince Philip cargo cults somewhere in the Pacific. They started to wear poppies, and Zelensky seems to continue this “tradition”.

British readers may be familiar with poppy wearing because it is worn to commemorate the fallen in the First World War in UK. The Ukrainian poppy is worn on 8 May, the day victory in the Second World War is celebrated in the West. The Victory Day is celebrated on the 9 in Russia and was celebrated on the 9 in Ukraine too until recently.

Or rather it is worn by government flunkies because by far not everyone has accepted this new idiocy and some mean individuals have even called it “ochko bandery“ – Bandera’s anus…

Apple Music 100 Ukraine

Made me feel old…

I went through the whole playlist and haven’t heard the Ukrainian language once. And this sort of proves one of the central thesis of this blog, and that is Russian is the dominant language in Ukraine. It dominates the charts on Spotify too.

Meanwhile though, the Ukrainian language is propped up by the government through quotas on radio and the television. Maybe they should send a delegation to California, or wherever these companies are based, and tell them to practice some affirmative action. We need to speak the language Americans will understand. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian authorities have also banned the rapper Morgenshtern from coming to Ukraine.

Now Morgenshtern is a controversial figure. The Russian conservatives would like to see him removed from public space. I understand that his music is degenerate but look around, the world around you is degenerate. Meanwhile in Ukraine, this article even calls Morgenshtern an element of Russian soft power. I think Morgenshtern must be laughing his socks off at what is happening. Evil Russians have found some Bashkir degenerate to plant seeds of doom in Ukraine. LMAO

And Morgenshtern truly is an influential cultural product. I personally found out about Morgenshtern through a Czech girl I dated, who was 15 years my junior. Now you may say, but Leoš, isn’t Apple Music and Spotify for wealthy urbanite hipsters, and the usual Ukrainian does not have access to it because he has no money? Yes but the cool kids have it, and poor kids want to be cool too. So I think the charts are a good reflection of what the people want to listen to.

Neonazi Problem in Ukraine is Being Hushed by (some in) the West

From time to time you might see a Western commentator say that Ukraine does not have a Nazi problem because… fill in your lame reason… Usually they say that explicitly nationalist parties do not score significant electoral victories. That is partially true but when Svoboda was propped up financially under Yanukovych, they actually got seats in the Rada (the national parliament of Ukraine). The whole argument falls apart when you consider that the big oligarch supported parties in Ukraine that form the Rada now have pretty much adopted the nationalist program that consists of forcible Ukrainization, attack on canonical links between the Ukrainian and Russian Orthodox Churches, rehabilitation of Nazi collaborators, and the demonisation of the Soviet past, and overall Russophobia.

Another argument that I have heard from Anton Shekhovtsov, an NGO worker that focuses on far right movements, is that the Nazis of the Azov battalion are not really a problem because they are under the control of the Ministry of Interior. Recently, I have watched Anatoly Shariy on the Vladimir Slovyov’s podcast, and he said: “Who cares if the Neonazis get low scores in elections, they have guns.” Well, they literally have tanks. My take on this has been that the West keeps a blind eye on Nazis in Ukraine because:

  1. Neonazis mean Western policies towards Ukraine may be discredited in the eyes of the Western public and therefore denial, half truths, and accusations of Russian disinformation.
  2. Ukraine has become something similar to Afghanistan in the eighties. There, Islamic fanatics were mobilised to fight the Soviets, and here Neonazis are mobilised to fight the Russian cultural element in Ukraine, the separatists in the East if not directly the Russian Federation.

Neonazis were instrumental in the victory of the Maidan and radical nationalism is used to repress pro-Russian people, and the Russian cultural element in Ukraine. I do not think the Azov Nazis would last against a Russian military but should the Russians intervene in Ukraine on behalf of the separatists, the West is going to enact sanctions and embargoes. Hence we have a situation where Nazis shell villages in Eastern Ukraine and it makes Russia look bad.

The other day, an interview with a former journalist of RFE/RL, Alexander Orlov for RT came to my attention, particularly because of this passage.

I translate: “There was a story from Ukraine. A story about a youth camp run by the battalion “Azov”, where children with the Wolfsangel rune on their jackets are playing war games. I have made a trailer with the title “From the heart to the Sun. A Neonazi camp youth camp was opened near Kiev.” Everyone was unhappy with it, and the Ukrainian section demanded I be sacked. (To their credit, a number of Western publications reported on the Azov Neonazi summer camp, although I believe the story of Neonazis in Ukraine deserves more attention than it gets)

“You are wrong, you are wrong” – Said [my] colleague Michael, the vice president actually, “Ukraine needs a little bit of this “national socialism” to win.”

One only wonders what they are winning by supporting a bunch of Hitler worshipers? We see a case of presenting American interests, which is to cause problems for Russia, as the interests of the Ukrainian people. But the opposite is the case, enmity with Russia is actually a detriment to the entire region, and it is in the interest of Eastern Europe to shed this enmity and mute the agents of American influence.

As for the brand of “national socialism”, this is basically the violent street culture of the Neonazis, which is not something you want to cultivate in your society. Ukraine has seen the murders of ordinary citizens by Neonazi thugs in recent years, in drunken street brawls, because since they have gained social acceptance, they have become much too bold and now prey on Ukrainian normies. There is some indication that the Ukrainian secret service is making attempts to spread this vile ideology among the youths of Russia but the FSB works rather well at countering it.

PS: Another interesting moment in the Alexander Orlov interview is where he tells that he was chastised for calling members of the Al Qaeda in Syria “terrorists”. Clearly, US is pimping and giving information cover to radical Muslims in Syria, and here you have an answer to why Russia is involved there. These terrorists employed against Assad’s regime will next be employed against Russia and their allies. A similar situation is with Ukraine and sooner or later Russia will be militarily involved there too.
