Top Ukrainian Nazi Visits U.S. Congress, Pentagon, Seeks Weapons for Ukraine

Eric Zuesse

The Deputy Speaker of Ukraine’s parliament, Andriy Parubiy, who had been the co-founder of the Nazi-inspired Social Nationalist Party of Ukraine, met in Washington on Wednesday, February 25th, with members of the U.S. House and Senate who support his request that the U.S. Government donate weapons to his virtually bankrupt Government. Parubiy also visited with the Pentagon. Weapons are needed by his Government because his Government is engaged in a civil war against the residents in the area of Ukraine that had voted 90% for the former Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Parubiy himself (when he was called “the Mayor of Maidan”) led to overthrow in a violent February 2014 coup.

According to a recent report by Gabriel Gatehouse of the BBC, witness testimony and photographic evidence both conflict with Parubiy’s account of how the overthrow a year ago occurred. The United States Government strongly supported Yanukovych’s overthrow, and denies that it was a coup. The Obama Administration calls it an expression of Ukrainian democracy, and says that the replacement Government was “duly elected” (though by whom was left unsaid by Mr. Obama), and that when elections for a new Ukrainian President were held in northwest Ukraine on 25 May 2014, in which no one in the rebelling region participated, the residents in the rebelling region were terrorists if they refused to accept the election’s winner as being their President. The residents still refused to accept the winner of that election as being their leader. The Government, on 2 May 2014, massacred an estimated 100+ peaceful demonstrators against the Government, in Odessa, and sent troops into the southeast to take over their local governments, and so the civil war started. Mr. Parubiy was a member of the small team that planned the Odessa massacre.

The residents in the area of Ukraine that is being bombed and even firebombed by Parubiy’s Government had opposed the overthrow, because they had voted 90% for the person who was being overthrown; they did not feel that an imposed new leader would be acceptable to them. The continued bombing of them by the replacement Government has thus-far failed to persuade the residents there to support Parubiy’s Government; and, so, those residents have declared their region to be no longer a part of Ukraine. Ukraine’s President, Petro Poroshenko, disagrees; he says that they have no right to do that and that they are therefore ‘terrorists’ for seceding from Ukraine. The United States Government supports that position, and Congress voted more than 98% for it. However, U.S. President Barack Obama, whose Administration ran that coup and actually selected the leader of the interim government to replace Yanukovych, Ukraine’s current Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, hasn’t yet decided whether to send Ukraine more weapons than he has already sent.

Canada’s Parliament held a Reception, 24 Feb. 2015, for Parubiy:

    Wow… A new testament to our propaganda system.

    Canadian lawmakers honored Ukraine deputy Speaker for creating phony ‘antisemitism’ in his country.

    On February24, 2015, Canadian Parliament declared kosher a motion put by two Israel Firsters, Harper’s multiculturalism minister Jason Kenney and former justice minister Irwin Cotler, over the rise of anti-Semitism in Canada and the rest of the world. The motion was lauded by members of all major political parties controlled by Israel lobby groups.

    The brainwashed lawmakers agreed that antisemism not only poses a great threat to Jews but is an assault on ‘Canadian values’. Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper in a speech at Jewish National Fund in 2013 defined these ‘Canadian values’, as: “Israel is a light of freedom and democracy in what is otherwise region of darkness.”

    I see how the Zionist Neo-Con Jews operate. They get to get groups like the Social Nationalist Party of Ukraine to take all the sensationalistic heat in the Press for something they’re backing and pushing for in Ukraine (behind the scenes). They get to hide behind these so called Nazi groups and let them take all the heat for what the Ukrainian government is doing. Typical Bolsheviks!

      You sound Exactly like Winston Churchill:

      “One might as well legalise sodomy as recognise the Bolsheviks.”

      “There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism … by … Jews, [it] it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others.”

    Isn’t this just great ladies and gents? In WW2 the so called “Allies” pacify European Fascism in Italy and Germany. Near the end of the war it was starting to become clear that the Allies themselves would not put themselves on trial for crimes they too committed. And of course, the fact that Western Corporations and Central Banks laundered money to prop up the Nazi’s in the first place. This went on for decades longer of Western Nations getting away with their own crimes. The U.S., for instance, destabilizes at least 69 Sovereign Nations since the end of WW2. Fascism won and took hold of Western Nations. Now in the 21st Century a Nazi is allowed into the U.S. and ask for weapons for their ethnic cleansing campaign, the very country that told its citizens in WW2 that they must enter the fray to fight and defeat Nazi’s.
