On Hitler’s Birthday, US to Begin Openly Training Neo-Nazi Integrated Forces in Ukraine

The US has long be openly coordinating with, advocating for, and supporting neo-Nazi and neo-Nazi integrated forces in Ukraine.

Here is Victoria Nuland, a high-ranking and corrupt member of Obama’s executive, meeting with far-right figures Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Vitali Klitschko, and officially designated neo-Nazi Oleh Tyahnybok:

In 2012, the EU officially designated Svoboda, the militant group led and co-founded by Tyahnybok, as an anti-democratic, “racist”, “anti-Semitic” group, and the World Jewish Congress designated it a “neo-Nazi” group.

In a leaked phone call, Nuland was caught determining who should assume the post of prime minister after the Ukrainian coup d’etat was completed, or, in Nuland’s term “midwifed”.  She picked Yatsenyuk, and, indeed, he took the position after the coup.  Nuland suggested that he should meet with Tyahnybok “four times a week”.

For his part, also exhibiting a Nazi-influenced outlook, Yatsenyuk later wrote on a government website:

“They lost their lives because they defended men and women, children and the elderly who found themselves in a situation facing a threat to be killed by invaders and sponsored by them subhumans. First, we will commemorate the heroes by wiping out those who killed them and then by cleaning our land from the evil

The Ukrainian government, with US funding, material support, and political backing, has since been laying siege to and knowingly dispatching neo-Nazi militias against the areas of Ukraine that had most strongly supported the democratically elected president who was overthrown.

One of the neo-Nazi militias being dispatched is called the Azov Battalion, which uses symbols used by the Nazis and commonly used by neo-Nazi groups today, such as:

Nazi symbols on helmets worn by members of Ukraine's Azov battalion. (As filmed by

Robert Parry notes of US media’s reluctance to cover Azov and other such battalions:

In other contexts, the [NY] Times is quick to note and condemn any sign of a Nazi resurgence in Europe. However, in Ukraine, where neo-Nazis, such as Andriy Parubiy served as the coup regime’s first national security chief and neo-Nazi militias are at the center of regime’s military operations, the Times goes silent on the subject.

It can’t be because the Times is unaware of what has been extensively reported about the Azov battalion. The Times could even find a brief reference in one of its own prior stories. The only logical answer is that the Times is committed to a propaganda position on the Ukraine crisis and doesn’t want the facts to get in the way of its preferred storyline.

Now, Alternet headlines:

On Hitler’s Birthday, US Will Begin Training Ukraine’s Far Right National Guard

On Tuesday, The Associated Press reported The United States plans to send soldiers to Ukraine later this month to train the country’s national guard, which includes groups expressly espousing support for far-right and Nazi ideology.

Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post on Sunday that the units to be trained include the Azov Battalion, a volunteer force that has attracted criticism for its far-right sentiments including brandishing an emblem widely used in Nazi Germany.

As the BBC would describe the Azov Battalion last December:

Run by the extremist Patriot of Ukraine organisation, which considers Jews and other minorities “sub-human” and calls for a white, Christian crusade against them, it sports three Nazi symbols on its insignia: a modified Wolf’s Hook, a black sun (or “Hakensonne”) and the title Black Corps, which was used by the Waffen SS.

British state-run BBC goes on to claim that most of the militias (which Britain and the US back) attacking the disenfranchised east of Ukraine are “not extremist”, but admits the neo-Nazi ones enjoy “special” privilege from the top of the Ukrainian government, as noted here by a leading Ukrainian rabbi:

In November 2014, Ukraine’s chief rabbi Yaakov Bleich:

…condemned [Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen] Avakov’s appointment of Azov Battalion deputy commander and leading Patriot of Ukraine member Vadim Troyan as Kiev Oblast police chief, and demanded that “if the interior minister continues to appoint people of questionable repute and ideologies tainted with fascism and right-wing extremism, the interior minister should be replaced.”

Alternet continues:

That the United States is supporting neo-Nazi factions is nothing particularly new. Indeed, Alternet’s Max Blumenthal (as well as other outlets) have  documented this fact for well over a year. What is of note is that (A) the United States military is now doing so openly and seemingly without much shame and (B) deciding, in a perverse irony, to begin this latest partnership on Hitler’s Birthday.

The US is also currently openly coordinating terrorist attacks committed by the Saudi dictatorship against Yemen.

  • ‘Holocau$t’ Lies -Who Profits?

    A big yawn for that article. It’s nothing more than garbage in, garbage out.

    There are the ‘Nazis’ with the mythological ‘6M & gas chambers’ and there are the ‘Nazis’ without the mythological ‘6M & gas chambers’.

    The ‘6M & gas chambers’ are an impossible fraud.
    see the ‘holocaust’ scam debunked here:

    No name calling, level playing field debate here:
    http://forum.codoh.com

    The ‘holocaust’ storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. What sort of truth is it that crushes the freedom to seek the truth? Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.

    antisemitic – any thought or person that a Jew doesn’t like

    The tide is turning.

    Russian lies. Rifle companies from the US Army’s 173rd Airborne BDE will be training Ukrainian national guard units from the Ministry of the Interior. No private militias.

      AP: “Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post on Sunday that the units to be trained include the Azov Battalion,
      a volunteer force that has attracted criticism for its far-right
      sentiments including brandishing an emblem widely used in Nazi Germany.”

      To be clear, your opinion is that AP made this up for the sake of doing pro-Russian propaganda? What on Earth do you have to substantiate that assertion?

      • Ernest Allen

        AP isn’t making up anything. Avakov is wrong. It’s not the first time he’s been wrong. (see his February comments on Debaltseve “holding out” against the Russian assault).

        • Robert Barsocchini

          Now, that I could believe, when I see your source quoted with a link. But February was months before this news came out.

          Also, this changes your statement from seeming to say that AP was doing Russian propaganda to saying that Avakov, a militant anti-Russian extremeist, was doing Russian propaganda, which makes even less sense.

          • Ernest Allen

            The Minister is wrong. Period.

            I never said that AP was propagandizing. It’s only a source in a story on a site (Washington Blog) that is a pure propaganda piece. There are no far right parties in the Ukrainian Rada (never made the 5% threshold) nor as principles or deputies in the coalition government. Period. This is all the work of the Kremlin’s master spin doctor Dimitry Kiselyov.

            Speaking of Nazis, the Russian government through the Rodina party hosted 400+ right wing nuts and Nazis from across Europe. Odd how the Washington Blog didn’t cover that, no?

          • Robert Barsocchini

            It’s odd that “Washington’s Blog” reports on Washington, as its name implies it would and its own description verifies that it does….? Not sure how to respond to that one, or what good any response would do….

            The piece never mentioned the Ukrainian Rada. It quotes AP, a Ukrainian rabbi, and far-right figures themselves about far-right and neo-Nazi elements in the Ukrainian government…

            I’ve asked you twice to substantiate how this is Russian spin, or propaganda, or whatever you want to call it, and both times you’ve fallen flat, so I will close out here and let you add whatever else you want.

          • Ernest Allen

            We’ve got plenty of far-left and far-right Putin apologists in America. Settled that.

            I’ll address the Ukraine point further after YOU address my Russian Nazi point, which you continue to avoid.

          • Robert Barsocchini

            “I’ll address the Ukraine point further after YOU address my Russian Nazi point, which you continue to avoid.”

            Okay, fair enough. I’ll address your Russian nazi point, and then you can keep your word and address the Ukraine point. It seems like you already tried to address it above, but if you’re saying you didn’t, then I’m all ears now.

            I know for a fact there are nazis and neo nazis in Russia, and I’m 99.99% sure I have nothing to do with it and my tax dollars are not being used to support them.

            “My own concern is primarily the terror and violence carried out by my own state,
            for two reasons. For one thing, because it happens to be the larger component
            of international violence. But also for a much more important reason than that:
            namely, I can do something about it. So even if the US was responsible for 2%
            of the violence in the world instead of the majority of it, it would be that 2%
            I would be primarily responsible for. And that is a simple ethical judgment.
            That is, the ethical value of one’s actions depends on their anticipated and
            predictable consequences. It is very easy to denounce the atrocities of someone
            else. That has about as much ethical value as denouncing atrocities that took
            place in the 18th century.” – Noam Chomsky

            If you think it is WB’s job to report on neo nazis in Russia, do you think it is the job of Russians to report on the USA’s backing of neo Nazi forces in Ukraine?

            There are plenty of US outlets that want your attention off of the US government and on US governments targets, preparing the public mind for more US aggression.

            As for the Putin apologist ad hominem remark, this is an age old smear: pro-war people always ad hominem-attack anti-war people by saying they are pro-whatever country or group the US happens to be targeting at the moment. So, in 1967, NYT called MLK Jr. pro-Hanoi for his speaking against the US slaughter of Vietnam. Under Bush, anti-war people were called “pro-Saddam”, even if the very same people had earlier been opposed to the US installing and then backing Saddam as he killed a million Iranians and tens of thousands of Kurds.

            That’s my response to the existence of neo Nazis in Russia.

            Moving on to your part of the bargain:

            The Ukraine point in question was your statement that the WB article was “Russian lies”.

            I pointed out that the article consisted of quotes from AP, BBC, a Ukrainian rabbi, the World Jewish Congress, and Ukrainian far-right figures themselves, and thus asked you which of these were “Russian lies”, and why any of these sources would issues “Russian lies”.

            Please give the information you are implying you have but didn’t give the first two times I asked.
