NYT Support for Nazi-Infested Ukraine

NYT Support for Nazi-Infested Ukraine

by Stephen Lendman

The Times consistently supports what demands condemnation, its discussion of US installed Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s ouster the latest example.

He didn’t resign. He outlived his usefulness, didn’t performed as expected, and was sacked - parliament speaker Volodymyr Groysman replacing him.

He’s a US appointed oligarch president Petro Poroshenko favorite, part of Ukraine’s illegitimate regime, Nazis posing as democrats - The Times going along with the charade.

Fascist dictatorship, police state repression, massive corruption and naked aggression on its own people are airbrushed from its reports.

Anyone opposing regime policy risks arrest, prosecution, imprisonment or extrajudicial assassination.

Ukraine is a metastasizing cancer in Europe’s heartland, unsafe and unfit to live in, an untenable situation, millions of its citizens fleeing to Russia or intending to for a new life, free from intolerable governance. More on this below.

Groysman is the flip side of Yatsenyuk, Washington’s latest puppet. How long he’ll last until replaced by another one remains to be seen.

The Times called him “Poroshenko’s man.” Both serve US interests, remaining in power as long as they remember who’s boss.

The Times claiming Yatsenyuk “le(ft) behind some worthy legislative achievements” mocks reality. 

Saying former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili “was brought in…as governor of Odessa and is emerging as an independent anti-corruption campaigner” turns truth on its head.

In 2003, Washington’s Rose Revolution installed him. He ruled by brute force, the same role assigned him in Odessa.

His agenda includes suspicious deaths, disappearances, mass arrests, detentions, torture, media control, elimination of political opponents and Russia bashing.

He fostered greater corruption than when he took office. Anything goes as long as US interests are served.

Ukraine is a US-created cesspool of illegitimacy, police state terror, xenophobia, ultranationalism, anti-Semitism, massive corruption, and Nazi-infested war-mongering fascists.

No wonder an International Sociological Association report revealed one-fifth of the population seriously considers emigrating to Russia, according to Fort Russ

One-third “intend(s) acquiring a package of documents guaranteeing them a residence permit and the right to work in Russia.”

A third of Ukrainian graduates plan continuing their education in Russian universities. Kiev’s security services considers them “potential traitors.”

An unnamed student was denied a school honor due him for writing the following:

“In the cult Soviet film ‘the Adjutant of His Excellency,’ the White Guard was represented exclusively by intelligent, respectable people for whom the words ‘honor’ and ‘conscience’ are indisputable truth. I want to become a Russian officer.”

He intends emigrating “to live a full life,” free from intolerable conditions in Ukraine.

Historian Tatiana Petrovna was sacked for calling notorious Nazi supporters Stepan Bandera and Yevhen Konovalets “Hitler’s henchmen.”

She’s moving to Russia. Its laws facilitate naturalization for oppressed Ukrainian citizens. Kiev extremists want legislation enabling prosecution of “persons who are not…patriots.”

Expect heavy emigration flows to continue, perhaps millions fleeing for freedom and a better life.
