Canada’s Globe and Mail published a lengthy expose on Feb. 7 and Feb. 10 of the Pravyi Sekctor (Right Sector) Nazi terrorists in Ukraine called, “Have Ukraine’s Protests Been Taken Over by Ultra-Right Wing Group?” with graphic photos of the masked thugs assaulting people with pipes and baseball bats. Reporting from Ukraine, reporter Doug Sanders begins:
“Inside the Soviet-era office building that has been seized as a barracks for protest organizers and guards, the fifth floor is blocked, from the moment you attempt to step off the elevator, by a phalanx of grim-faced men in camouflage fatigues, brush cuts and Mohawks, many of them holding iron bars or other improvised weapons. They don’t want visitors.”
Like the Bloomberg report on the group that appeared on Feb. 11, Sanders details how the movement is described as “fascist” and that “they call themselves an army” that supports the Svoboda (Freedom) party of anti-Semite Oleh Tyahnybok. He also says that the group’s leader, Dmitro Yarosh, has boasted of “having a cache of weapons sufficient to fight a civil war.” Another member who agreed to be interviewed told Sanders, “We are an army now, and our group is fully capable of fighting a civil war.”
Other exposes are going after the U.S. support for these terrorist networks. On Feb. 11, longtime Capitol Hill foreign policy specialist Daniel McAdams, was interviewed on antiwar.com‘s Scott Horton radio show, where he warned that the U.S. campaign for regime-change in Ukraine could result in a “a certain possibility” that a war could break out between the U.S. and Russia over the Ukraine. McAdams draws parallels between the onset of World War I and the Ukraine situation and zeroes in on the role of Victoria Nuland and her warmonger husband, Robert Kagan. McAdams, who is executive director of the anti-war Ron Paul Institute (of which Rep. Walter Jones is a board member) also wrote two articles denouncing the U.S. campaign against Ukraine for lewrockwell.com, where he quotes the warnings from Sergei Glazyev.
“As Glazyev pointed out, this direct US involvement would be in violation of the Memorandum on Security Assurances, signed by both Russia and the United States in 1994,” McAdams says, and “Glazyev suggested that this evidence of US violation of the Memorandum may induce Russia to also intervene in the situation.”
He concludes that the U.S. should not ignore these warnings.
In another blast at the Obama administration’s confrontation with Russia over Ukraine, investigative reporter Wayne Madsen documents the history of the network of cold warriors going back to the late Dr. Lev Dobriansky, leader of the “Captive Nations” anti-Soviet groups, “who are pumping out neo-conservative propaganda calling for direct U.S. intervention into the affairs of Ukraine and full support for the Euro-Maidan protests in Ukraine.” Madsen shows how the Obama policy of intervening in Ukraine is entirely integrated with these old Cold War networks. His article is published by the Strategic Culture Foundation, an anti-war group, mostly Russian analysts and can be found here.
