"Ukraine has deployed over 3,000 law enforcers in Odessa ahead of the anniversary of mass killings in the port city on May 2. Last year almost 50 activists were killed and over 200 injured in clashes when they were trapped in a burning building.

Commemoration ceremonies for people who died in Odessa a year ago went on as scheduled. People who gathered in front of the Trade Unions Building released black balloons and doves in memory of the victims.

Remembrances were also held in Austria, Poland, the Republic of Ireland, Switzerland, Morocco, Russia and the rebel-held cities of Donetsk and Lugansk..."

CyberBerkut: Ukrainian Security Service Involved in Buzina Murder

http://sptnkne.ws/gMb

"Ukraine hacker collective Cyber Berkut has hacked into the inbox of a Kharkiv official, finding him complaining to nationalists presumed responsible for the murder of opposition journalist Oles Buzina about their 'excessive' use of force.

Among the materials retrieved by the hackers is frantic email by Abbakumov to one of the alleged killers where he criticizes them for their methods:

'You bastards, what are you doing? You consider this to be an intimidation measure? Do you know how much barking there will be on Moskal TV after this? I understand that this bald head [Buzina] has been asking for a brick to the head for a long time, but it was supposed to be a brick, [not a gun] understand?

You were given license to shut this trash up, but not permanently. You had told me about knocked out teeth, broken fingers. As for your team of thugs: Dublon [a nickname for Ukrainian Security Service Major General A Dublik, according to Cyber Berkut] called me personally three times. Now get back to Kharkiv and return to base. The remaining orders are cancelled for now.!

The alleged killer responded, telling Abbakunov:

'Do not ever dare to humilitate me or my boys again! We took up arms in order to clean our native land of garbage and traitors to the national idea, and not in order to make you sad about the fact that another traitor to Ukraine went to a place from where he will never bark again!

We will return to Kharkiv once we finish the job. And as you know, we have a lot of work yet to be done! Glory to Ukraine!"

 

Here is just a small sample of the late Oles Buzina's 'barking' that under the new Western-backed  Nazi Ukraine, apparently got the writer murdered. As such it is of value and deserves to be read:

 

Stories From Oles Buzina: SS Galicia Division Against Ukraine

http://newcoldwar.org/stories-from-oles-buzina-ss-galicia-division-again...

"The inglorious path of this SS Division is the biography of one bitter Galician illusion that some are trying to revive even today. Not Ukrainians, but specifically Galician.

In 1941, the same Germans and many Galicians - that were not of Jewish or Polish descent...decided that the new 'kind Kaiser' is Adolf Hitler.

Banderite and Melynkite factions from the broken Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists [OUN-UPA], a small but EXTREMELY MALEVOLENT terrorist organization that lived before the war thanks to German intelligence - both raced to serve him...

The newly formed unit was officially called the 14th Waffen Grenadier Divison of the SS (1st Galician)."

When the president of the Canadian society of veterans of the Waffen SS Galizien passed away earlier that year, the UCC claimed 'he will be remembered as a hero of Ukraine.."

 Yes, the west was well ensconced in Russia and there was rumour of Russia joining NATO, so indeed NATO  expansion was set to gobble up Russia itself until Vald showed up on the scene and said Heah whast gives. Ukraine coup is what gives, the little people not mattering at all...we are all squatting on the elite's planet in their minds.

 

China and the USA , the elites that is, are conducting major joint corporate investment with R&D and IT being done now primarily in China/India/ Russia to some extent while China invests in reverse industrial colonization in America with the set up of industrial parks and other such everyday industrials and infrastructure for them coming on line owned by Chinese corporations. Escobar is the one who doesn't quite get the whole picture. The Chinese elite and their western counterparts are both business partners and rivals, vying for market share as one world goverance is coming into view. Vald while he understands what is happening can't help being a throwback and thinking the resources in the Russian domain should actually have some major benefit for the Russian people...poor misguided fool. The Chinese elite are under no such illusions other than crumbs to keep the masses basically quiet. Harper's purpose is to guide Canada along these same lines with aim directed to a focal point some years down the road; or "you won't recognize the country when I'm done with it"....

 

Resistance may be futile but we still have to fight for humanity to ever reach freedom.

Whose Victory Will Ukrainians Celebrate on May 9?: The Pseudo-Historical Ukrainian Propaganda Over WWII  -  by Halyna Mokrushyna

http://newcoldwar.org/whose-victory-will-ukrainians-celebrate-on-may-9-t...

"...What is utterly illegal to me is the war itself, the so-called anti-terrorist operation that Kyiv launched against the people of Donbas with the support of [CANADA!,] the US and NATO.

Donbas did not start the war, Kyiv did. And now the pro-US regime in Kyiv is trying to mutilate the essence of Ukraine by rewriting history, by distorting the meaning of the Great Patriotic War.

They want to send to oblivion the true celebrations of Victory Day on May 9 and instead convert it into the sanitized 'European' way of commemorating WWII, including replicating the profoundly symbolic St George's ribbon with the poppy!

There is one fundamental problem with this plan. Europe did not defeat the Nazis, the Soviet Union did.

The St George's ribbon can be seen everywhere in Donbas. For the Donbas insurgency, their fight against the Kyiv 'junta' is a continuation of the fight against Nazi Germany..."

Secret Record Revealed in Austrian Court: Yanukovich Pressured into Union with EU by Nuland Threat to Imprison Firtash  -  by John Helmer

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article41763.htm

"A Vienna, Austria court has ruled that Victoria Nuland, the US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, attempted to pressure the President of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovich, into accepting Ukrainian association with the European Union (EU) by threatening oligarch Dmitry Firtash with arrest, extradition to the US and imprisonment on allegations of bribery several years ago in India.

In the wake of the revelations in the Austrian court proceedings a record of what Nuland and Yanukovich discussed has surfaced.

Nuland: ' Mr President, we will have Firtash arrested unless you agree to sign the EU Association Agreement.'

Yanukovich: 'Okay, I'll sign.'

(In his absence, Nuland whispers to Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt):

Nuland: 'We got the guy by the fucking balls huh?'

Russian Media: Even the "Progressive Left" Fudges It on Ukraine

Quote:
Even Democracy Now!, like the PBS, can’t bring itself to tell the American public their army is now training neo-Nazis in Ukraine....

"The truth, unpalatable to both the PBS and DemocracyNow!, is that the National Guard of Ukraine, as we and many other alternate media outfits have been reporting, is made up of the notorious Azov Battalion, Praviy Sektor neo-Nazis and other ultra-nationalist paramilitary groups Kiev has decided to bring under its wing and use in its ethnic-cleansing campaign in Donbass."

NDPP

As is obvious from the recent 'take note' debate on Ukraine, held April 29 in Parliament, all have been completely captured by the ultranationalists of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress. They in turn are the tools of the Atlantic Council and American power. This is such a dreary and oft repeated tale when it comes to US coup-regimes. The nastiest elements are always the most useful and made dominant . That our MPs should now champion the lobby's fascist Russophobic agenda of war is most unfortunate. That few understand this even more so.

Ukraine SITREP May 8th, 2015

http://thesaker.is/ukraine-sitrep-may-8th-2015-by-raskolnikova/

DPR-MOD:  Provocations by Ukrainian Forces Planned for VE Day

"According to secret service received by DPR, the leadership of Ukraine is preparing provocations on the territory of Donetsk People's Republic. For this purpose, the Ukrainian forces will use the symbols of the Republican Guard and the Cossacks. Sabotage on behalf of the Republican guard will be a 'resonant event' in which Ukrainian media will blame the leadership of the DPR.

For maximum effect, the Ukrainian authorities plan to use the celebrations in DPR associated with Victory Day. For this purposes, the Ukrainan media on May 5, 2015, deliberately spread information that on May 9, 'The terrorists in the guise of Ukrainian troops, are planning to shoot at a peaceful rally in Donetsk.'

This confirms the intention of the Ukrainian authorities to link planned provocations on Victory Day. Sabotage on the territory of the DPR, according to the Ukrainian authorities should allow Western and Ukrainian media to accuse the leadership of the Republic for the outbreak of war."

Who Owns Agricultural Land in Ukraine?

"The fate of Ukraine's agricultural sector is on shaky ground. Last year, the Oakland Institute reported that over 1.6 million hectares (ha) of land in Ukraine are now under the control of foreign-based corporations. Further research has allowed for the identification of additional foreign investments.

Some estimates now bring the total of Ukrainian farmland controlled by foreign companies to over 2.2 million ha. However, research has also identified important grey areas about land tenure in the country, and who actually controls land in Ukraine today is difficult to ascertain.

Does the growing concentration of Ukrainian land in the hands of a few oligarchs and foreign corporations benefit the country, its people and its economy?

Kerry in Sochi: Ukraine's 15 Minutes of Fame is Probably Over  -  by Bryan Macdonald

http://rt.com/op-edge/258041-kerry-sochi-ukraine-fame/

John Kerry's Sochi meetings with Vladimir Putin and Sergey Lavrov hardly dissolved years of mistrust between Washington and the Kremlin. However they probably signaled the end of Ukraine's period as a global cause celebre.

Kerry's joint press conference with Sergey Lavrov was more notable for what he didn't say than what he did mention. He didn't refer to Crimea, nor did he bluster about 'Russian troops in Donbas.' Instead, Kerry made it clear that the only solution to the Ukraine crisis is Minsk, Minsk and more Minsk.

The Secretary of State took the opportunity to slapdown Ukraine's President Poroshenko after his daft comments about retaking Donetsk airport.

The truth is that everyone is tired of Ukraine, except the diminishing band who made their names from the Maidan crisis. What began as an emotional rollercoaster has turned into a bitter disappointment for everyone in the west.

The penny has slowly dropped that all the 'revolution' did was replace a bunch of corrupt albeit elected rulers with a group of malcontents who are now stealing for themselves and their own cronies.

Kiev's travails are now a sideshow within a sideshow."

"Georgia's fugitive ex-president Mikhail Saakashvili and hawkish Senator John McCain have been approved as members of the newly-formed International Advisory Group that will help Ukraine's president.

"I was asked to do it by both Ukraine and Saakashvili and I said I would be inclined to do it, but I said I needed to look at all the nuances of it, whether it's legal under our ethics and all that kind of stuff.'

The senator said that 'he would love to do anything' he can to help Ukraine but..."

Who is Darius Engel, what is the source for that, and more importantly, who cares?

Thing is, when straight white guys make absolutist pronouncements about something completely irrelevant or what is right or wrong for all straight white people all over the world, most of us realize he's an idiot. Is there some reason we should buy that tripe in this case?

Perhaps you should set aside this Nazi imperialist bullshit for a sec, because there actually is a dimension of this which affects LGBT people - not only discrimination generally, but specifically the hate laws brought in in Russia which are being applied in rebel territories.

What is he even saying there? There are no LGBTQ people in Ukraine so they have no concerns? Sorry NDPP, but whoever this guy is, he an arrogant jerk who can't see beyond his own dogma enough to care for the people he claims to speak for.

You're the one who posted the FB link. This was on it.

Thanks for the clarification, and that I can now read his complete statement. Doesn't make him any less of an arrogant jerk.

So because something happened to him in Florida he gets to decide that other LGBTQ people halfway around the globe can't talk about similar and worse things happening to them, and that they have to shut up so his politics aren't offended?

Honors For Ukrainian Nationalists Anger Their Victims in Poland

http://newcoldwar.org/honors-for-ukrainian-nationalists-anger-their-vict...

"...It's hard to see reconciliation and forgiveness when the Ukrainians treat the OUN-UPA criminals and Bandera like national heroes,' says Mr Siekierka, who is president of SUOZUN, a civil organization devoted to the memory of Poles killed by the Ukrainian nationalists. 'Accepting one extremism now will lead to the acceptance of other extremisms in future.'

'Ukraine is searching for its own historic identity, and we should try to understand that,' Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna told Gazeta Wyborcza."

 

Poland Watch

"Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland, Grzegorz Schetyna publicly supported the initiative of the Ukrainian Rada to recognize the Ukrainian Insurgent Army and Organization of Nationalists [Nazis] as freedom fighters. Militants from those organizations have been officially blamed for the Volhynia massacre.

To make matters worse, Schetyna did this on orders from US Ambassador to Warsaw, Stephen Mull, which caused soaring discontent among both the people and politicians of Poland. Now he is compelled to beg his American patron John Kerry for protection. Quoting from a copy of the letter obtained by the respectable hackers from Cyberguarilla.org...

'Dear Secretary Kerry,

Adhering to our agreement with you, I have granted the request of Ambassador Mull and have openly supported the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine's legislation to recognize the Ukrainian Insurgent Army and Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists OUN-UPA as freedom-fighters, regardless of their direct participation in the genocide of ethnic Poles during the years of WWII.

The initiative of mine has triggered soaring discontent among both the people and politicians of Poland, including the Civic Platform Party I am a member of. I have received death threats and calls for a voluntary resignation from the Office of Foreign Affairs.

I ask you to respond with a gesture of goodwill and use the different leverages available to the US State Department so as to reduce the pressure put on me and my team. This will enable us to preserve the current level of trust and continue our cooperation as before.'

Canada has also embraced Bandera and the OUN-UPA via the ultranationalist lobby UCC. Unlike Poland, there is no 'soaring discontent among the people or politicians'. There should be.

Ukraine's Poroshenko Exposed in $25M Land Deal Cover-Up

http://sptnkne.ws/kEd

"..The report reveals that over the course of seven years 'Poroshenko quietly appropriated more than a hectare of protected land in Kyiv's elite Pechera district and recently quashed an inquiry. RFE/RL says that Poroshenko's failure to divest himself of his assets, as well as the new findings about his property holdings, may add to questions about his commitment to separating politics from property and money."

 

IMF Demands Will Make Most Ukrainians Homeless - Finance Minister of Ukraine

http://fortruss.blogspot.ca/2015/05/imf-demands-will-make-most-ukrainian...

"The IMF expects the Ukrainian authorities to adopt such laws which will make the majority of the population in the country homeless, said the Finance Minister, of American origin, Natalie Jaresko. Currently in Ukraine there is a moratorium on forced evictions of debtors. This is justified under conditions of a severe economic crisis in Ukraine, frozen wages and social benefits.

The consequence of the crisis was the rise in unemployment and a sharp fall in real incomes. People are objectively unable to pay the utility bills, which the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk raised several times..."

 

Ukraine Offers Up a Sales Catalogue

http://fortruss.blogspot.ca/2015/05/ukraine-offers-up-sales-catalog.html

"The Ukrainian government has adopted a list of properties to privatize in 2015. The list includes 285 assets, among them, 30 coal mines, including the Zassiadko mine of Donestsk. The Cabinet of Ministers also intends to privatize several seaports and companies whose privatization has been prohibited up to now.

France is ready to take part in the privatization of public properties in Ukraine, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Ukraine prime minister announced Wednesday in Paris after a meeting with his French counterpart Manuel Valls. France will host a conference on the potential for investment in Ukraine in the fall.

Ukraine expects to also organize such conferences in the US and in Germany."

And post-Soviet values, actually:

From 2012:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/26/us-ukraine-privatisation-idUSB...

Quote:

The Ukrainian government has drafted a law that paves the way for the privatization of hundreds of state-owned companies previously considered strategic, Kommersant-Ukraine newspaper reported on Wednesday citing a leaked draft document.

Ukrainian Economy Minister Petro Poroshenko said this week the government planned to remove about 1,200 enterprises from the list of strategic assets that cannot be privatized, Ukrainian media reported, but did not name any.

But, since President Viktor Yanukovich's election in early 2010, many privatization auctions have been won by his campaign's main financial backers, industrialists Rinat Akhmetov and Dmytro Firtash.

Companies close to Akhmetov, in particular, have purchased stakes in a number of electric power companies while Firtash's group has won most auctions for regional gas distribution companies.

Remind me again why you think Ukraine needs to be saved from your so-called Nazis.

Gap Now Opening Up Between Kiev & US, Kiev & EU (and audio)

http://rt.com/op-edge/258853-poroshenko-statement-war-ukraine-europe/

"The US, initially strongly behind Kiev, is now telling it to wind down the armed conflict, while the EU also wants the Ukraine problem to be solved and the sanctions gradually lifted, said Martin McCauley, author and current affairs commentator.

'Poroshenko cannot fallout with the Americans because they are his main backers; he can't fall out with the EU because he relies on them for economic aid, diplomatic aid and so on...[but] American, Canadian and British actions - training Ukrainian troops -  so far haven't really reinforced the idea that a peaceful solution with Minsk is what they want."

Ukrainian Nationalists Assault Women and Elderly in War on Soviet-era Victory Day Symbols (and vid)

http://rt.com/news/258557-ukraine-nationalists-attack-vday/

"As the world marked the 70th anniversary of Nazi Germany's defeat in WWII, Ukraine has seen a wave of attacks against Victory Day symbols associated with May 9 celebrations in Russia and the former Soviet Union.

On May 9, activists from the nationalist Ukrainian Svoboda ('Freedom') party were seen attacking people for wearing the traditional black and organge St George ribbons or carrying red Victory Day banners in several cities across the country.

Among those assaulted was the head of the Antifascist Committee in the Western Ukrainian city of Lvov, pensioner and member of the Communist party, Aleksandr Kalinyuk. He was sprayed with kefir (fermented milk) and prevented from leaving his home to attend unofficial Victory Day celebrations.

The video of the incident was posted to Youtube by Svoboda members who later wrote on FB that 'Kalinyuk and his Colorado ribbons and Soviet flags won't be attending.' Also in Lvov, an elderly man trying to lay flowers at a WWII memorial on May 9 was surrounded by people wearing Svoboda insignia. They shoved him and ripped the St George ribbon off him."
