More Evidence of Ukraine's Reign of Terror

More Evidence of Ukraine's Reign of Terror

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article discussed how Obama-installed fascist thugs eliminate anyone opposing their ruthlessness.

They're harassed, brutalized, imprisoned, disappeared or murdered in cold blood - including assassinating political opponents reported as "suicides."

Independent journalists, human rights workers and democracy advocates are vulnerable - anyone criticizing regime policy.

CyberBerkut is a Ukrainian hacker collective. It hacked into Kharkov regional state administration deputy head Vyacheslav Abbakumov's emails.

It reported the following, saying:

"We, the CyberBerkut, hereby present for public access materials confirming that the physical liquidation of public and political figures opposed to the Kiev Junta was authorized by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), and was supervised by the Kharkov political elite; the 'cleaners of Free Ukraine' turned out to be Kharkov-based nationalist groups."

They discovered "correspondence between (Abbakumov) and an unknown leader of an extreme-nationalist group in the Kharkov region."

A critical Abbakumov email to one of the alleged state-sponsored assassins said:

"You bastards, what are you doing? You consider this to be an intimidation measure?" 

"Do you know how much barking there will be on Moskal TV (a Ukrainian ethnic Russian slur) after this?" 

"I understand that this bald head murdered journalist (Oles Buzina) had been asking for a brick to the head for a long time, but it was supposed to be a brick, (not a gun) understand?" 

"You were given license to shut this trash up, but not permanently. You had told me about knocked out teeth, broken fingers." 

"As for the fate of your team of thugs: Dublon (a nickname for Ukrainian Security Service Major General A. Dublik), called me personally three times." 

"Now get back to Kharkov and return to base. The remaining orders are canceled for now."

The alleged assassin responded as follows:

"Do not ever dare to humiliate me or my boys again! We took up arms in order to clean our native land of garbage and traitors to the national idea, and not in in order to make you sad about the fact that another traitor to Ukraine went to a place from where he will never bark again!" 

"We will not come back (from Kiev) - and why did your poem-reciting Dublon give us the authority then?" 

"We have money, weapons, and allies in every corner of the country. We will return (to Kharkov) once we finish the job." 

"And as you know, we have a lot of work yet to be done! Glory to Ukraine!"

Dublik heads Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) department of protection of national statehood.

He recommended Kiev's SBU branch "take control of the activities of the aforementioned group, and if possible use it for prophylactic actions in relation to social and political figures who hold to the position of a peaceful settlement of the situation in the Donbass."

According to CyberBerkut, "this correspondence confirms, albeit indirectly, the fact that the elimination of opposition figures in Ukraine was supervised by representatives of the government."

Days earlier, Ukrainian Security Services chief investigator Vasily Vovk warned regime opponents to "shut their mouths" if they want to stay alive.

"I think that in our time, when there is practically a war going on, Ukrainophobes, if they don't shut their mouths, should at least stop their rhetoric," he blustered.

"I think that in the present situation, there shouldn't be anyone stepping out directly against Ukraine and Ukrainianness."

He warned "Ukrainophobes"  ignoring him that "nothing good will come of it." Anti-regime opponents are considered terrorists.

Eliminating them is official state policy. One Kiev critic after another is being killed. 

Fascist regimes operate this way. Washington provides full support and encouragement.
