The Ideology of the New Ukraine

Eric Zuesse

The ideology of the new, post-coup, Ukraine, is the ideology of its leaders. Above all, Dmitriy Yarosh, the founder of Right Sector, is that; but so too are Andrei Beletsky, the founder of Azov Battalion and leader of Patriot of Ukraine; and Andriy Parubiy and Oleh Tyahnybok, the co-founders of the “Social Nationalist Party of Ukraine,” the Party which, at the CIA’s urging, changed its name in 2004 to “Freedom” or “Svoboda,” in order to sell it better in the West. (Parubiy was also the founder of Patriot of Ukraine.) All of these leaders are leaders in this new Government, but not at its nominal top, because the U.S. regime doesn’t want the ties of its new Government to Hitler’s Nazi Party to be so obvious to Americans or to Europeans — it would be bad PR, especially because the United States lost so many men fighting against Hitler’s forces, and against the fascisms and racisms of Tojo and of Mussolini, all of which (and especially Hitler’s views) are basically boiled down here in the statement quoted below (only replacing “Ukraine” where Hitler said “German,” because this is a Ukrainian nazi, not a member of the original nazi party, which was the National Socialist Party of Germany).

The ideology of this Government was best expressed in 2010 by Andrei Biletsky, the founder of the oligarch-subsidized Azov Battalion; and the high points in his statement are here being boldfaced. The translation provided from the original Ukrainian, is mainly via google chrome auto-translate, but is clarified by minor changes from me, Eric Zuesse, in order to improve readability. Some terms are not translatable on the Web; and, so, someone who knows the Ukrainian language should improve on the translation that is provided here, and is invited to provide such an improved translation, either alongside this one, or else at a different site. But, here is the best that I can come up with:

The Ukrainian text is here:


Here is the translation:

Ukrainian Social Nationalism

[symbol is presented here of the inverted Nazi Wolfsangel sign]

The main idea of mystical Social Nationalism is its creation, consisting not of piles of separate individuals united mechanistically into something called “Ukrainian” and the presence of Ukrainian passport, but instead a single National biological organism, which will consist of a new people — a physically, intellectually and spiritually more highly developed people. From the mass of individuals will thus come forth the nation, and the faint start of modern man: Superman.

Social Nationalism is based on a number of fundamental principles that clearly distinguish it from other right-wing movements. This triad is: socialism, racism, imperialism. 

I. Socialism. We fight to create a harmonious national community. We argue that cutting social rozmezhovanist leads to decay and disintegration of Spirit of the national community, as well as fostering selfishness. We vidmitayemo being rich (provided the wealth acquired by them fair and socially useful work), but rejected the possibility of the poor. Every Ukrainian irrespective of the nature of the work should have a decent social status and material security. “I am ashamed to be poor in a rich country, even more ashamed to be rich in a poor country.” 

On the principle of socialism follows our complete negation of democracy and liberalism, which generate rozbytthya Nation isolated on gray power unit and a crowd of famous personalities (ochlocracy). Instead, we put forward the idea of national solidarity, the natural hierarchy and discipline, as the basis of our new society. Not a “democratic vote” crowd, who can not give councils to their own life, much less to the life of the State, but instead natural selection of the best representatives of the Nation — born-leaders as Ukraine’s leaders. Anyone who believes that this system of government is unacceptable, let him think, and if acceptable modern power system in which the prostitute and the Academy have equal say where degraded addict or gay equally valued in the election of the commander of the armored division. People by nature are born with different abilities and abilities and therefore the greatest happiness of man — when it finds its own place in the national hierarchy and conscientiously fulfills its purpose in life. 

II. Racism. All our nationalism is nothing — just a castle in the sand — without reliance on the foundation of blood Races. Traditional (postwar, postounivskomu) nationalism has put the cart before the horse – claim that the nation is linguistic, cultural or territorial and economic phenomenon. We certainly do not exclude the value of spiritual, cultural and linguistic factors, as well as territorial patriotism. But our deep conviction is that all this only derivatives from our race, our racial nature. If Ukrainian spirituality, culture and language are unique, it is only because our racial nature is unique. If Ukraine will become paradise on earth, it is only because our Race turned it so. 

Accordingly, treatment of our national body should start with racial purification of the Nation. And then in a healthy body can be regenerated a Race healthy national spirit, and its culture, language and everything else. Apart from the question of purity, we must pay attention to matters of usefulness to Races. Ukrainians — it’s part (and one of the largest and highest quality) of the European White Races. Races that produce a great civilization, the highest human achievement. The historic mission of our Nation, a watershed in this century, is thus to lead the White peoples of the world in the final crusade for their survival. It is to lead the war against Semites and the sub-humans they use.

III. Imperialism. We change the slogans “Independent Ukraine,” “United Ukraine” and “Ukrainians,” by an imperial nation that has a long history. Throughout its existence, the Ukrainians had at least two superpowers – Great Scythia and Kievan Rus. The task of the present generation is to create a Third Empire [a Ukrainian Third Reich] — Great Ukraine. This question, oddly enough, is not so much political as biological. Any living organism in nature seeks to expand, reproduce itself, increase its numbers. This law is universal and Paramecium caudatum, and for the person and for the Nation-Race. Suspension means extinction in nature — death. The slowdown in population growth leads to biological death of Nations, the suspension of political expansion, and decline of the state. Thousands of times we have heard stenannya pseudo-nationalist oppression of us Poles and Moscow, their curses to the empires. Social Nationalism is not so, he says – if we are strong, we take what is ours by right and even more, we will build a superpower empire — Great Ukraine, which is the legal successor of the Scythian and Kiev Russian empires. If we are weak, we place among the conquered peoples dying. As things are in nature! The choice is ours! 

So, Social Nationalism raises to shield all old Ukrainian Aryan values forgotten in modern society. Only their recovery and implementation by a group of fanatical fighters can we lead to the final victory of European civilization in the world struggle. 

This stand is right, and can not be otherwise!

Glory to Ukraine! 

Andrei Beletsky

    This is the biggest load of rubbish I have ever read on subject apart
    from all russian media I digest occasionally on russian television. (I’m
    russian just in case) Even people of “opposing” state (russia) don’t
    buy this.
    1) Ultra right wing DID participate in the revolution last
    winter BUT they represented only a tiny fraction of nearly 200.000
    actively involved and they got less than 3% of votes in the elections
    2) Every ‘evidence’ of tragic events in the eastern
    Ukraine (Boing, The bus, Mariupol etc.) was examined independently by
    RUSSIAN bloggers (opposing side) and it all leads to one and only side
    responsible – the pro-russian rebels. Period. End of story.
    I hope you are paid well, otherwise I suggest you demand your cut from my (never legitimate) president.

      Just click on the links I supply in each of my articles, and you will know that they are soundly sourced. I am not paid for any of my news reports and analyses, except for exclusives (which I have not done for a long time). Even the founder of Stratfor, and the President of the Czech Republic, have acknowledged that the overthrow of Yanukovych was a coup, not a democratic nor even a legal process. And the video documentation of the Obama stooges Ukrainian Government ethnic cleansing program in Donbass is incontestable. But you reject all these facts. If you can provide links to your supposed evidence to the contrary, I shall be happy to look at and consider that evidence. Otherwise, I shall consider you to be nothing but some troll for the Obama nazis in Ukraine or in Russia.

        It is really unfortunate that you’ve misinterpreted my post as defending Obama and/or US foreign policies. Given that fascism (as defined by it’s founder Mussolini) is a “corporativism” when corporations and the state are united and oppressing people US, is indeed a fascist state (and not only US). BUT I know for fact that “Ukrainian Government ethnic cleansing program in Donbass” is just a common stamp of russian propaganda and that nothing can be further form the truth. When separatist region in Russia (Chechniya that is) claimed it’s independence in 1993 – the resulting anti-terrorist operation by russian military forces has wiped out entire cities with bombs, shells and rockets, killing at least 50.000 civilians. That looked a lot like “ethnic cleansing” while the same situation in Ukraine has resulted less than 1000 civilian deaths so far with very questionable cause and most analytics agreeing that pro-russian rebels being brutal with civilians and at least responsible for Boing and Mariupol. It is also unfortunate that you rely on sources that have a very long track record of manipulating data thus misinforming you and people like you. It is very hard for those sources to misinform me, since I’m russian and have hundreds of real people connections in both Ukraine and Russia including people working for media and/or fighting there on BOTH sides. So please be careful and don’t let them fool yourself. Obama might be a beast but it is absolutely true that Russia has invaded Ukraine on the assumption that USSR should be reunited in one form or the other… The @sshole here is Putin and his criminal followers. It doesn’t mean Obama is an angel but it is what it is.

          ‘know for a fact’ is not a checkable reference. We need URLs.

          You fluffed the ‘fascism’ link. NAZI is the correct term. Try this one :

          My government is not at all reliable as an information source, except in the sense that anything they claim is very likely to be false.

          In situations of power or $, NEVER give the your opposition benefit of the doubt.

            Please enjoy this video shot be people in Mariupol after the rocket attack. It features some unexploded rockets and holes pointing that all this came from east. On the iPhone the North is marked with small red arrow (symbols are in Russian where “З” means west and “C” means North. There are only pro-russian troops to the east of the town and it all rained on the eastern part of the Mariupol.


            As for the NAZI, I wounder how did I (russian) managed to survive in Kiev last autumn for over a month 🙂

          • lew

            People who have no facts to support their argument commonly resort to continuous changes of topic.

            Your survival does not constitute strong evidence that Neo-NAZIs have no power. My list of cabinet ministers does constitute such evidence.

            Please try to stay on topic.

          • lew

            Evidence of neo-nazi power, of course.

          • lew

          Oh, yes, that ‘ultra-right wing’ that only polled 3% ended up with 8 of the cabinet positions, and just created a Propaganda Ministry.

          Ihor Tenyukh – interim defense minister and a member of Svoboda’s political council. Formerly commander of Ukraine’s navy, in 2008, during Russia’s war with Georgia, he ordered
          Ukrainian warships to block the entrance of the Russian Navy to the bay
          of Sevastopol.

          Andriy Parubiy – National Security Council chief, co-founded
          Svoboda back when it was the “Social National” (ahem!) party.

          Dmytro Yarosh – deputy head of the National Security Council, i.e.
          the police, and the founder-leader of “Right Sector,” a militant
          neo-Nazi paramilitary group that took charge of security in the Maiden.

          Oleh Makhnitsky – Svoboda member of parliament, is prosecutor-general.

          Oleksandr Sych – Svoboda parliamentarian and the party’s chief ideologist, is deputy prime minister for economic affairs.

          Serhiy Kvit – a leading member of Svoboda, is to head up the Education

          Andriy Moknyk – the new Minister of Ecology, has been Svoboda’s
          envoy to other European fascist parties. Last year, he met
          with representatives of Italy’s violent neo-fascist gang, Forza Nuovo.

          Ihor Shvaika – agro-oligarch and a member of Svoboda, has been appointed Minister of Agriculture. One of the richest men in the country, his massive investments in agriculture would seem to indicate a slight conflict of interest.

          For the first time since 1933, the followers of a movement that valorizes Adolf Hitler and preaches anti-Semitism has entered a European government.
