MH17 Probe: 'Everything Points To the Ukrainian Side' - Analyst

"...I would think that with the football championship in Russia coming up in 3 weeks' time, the Skripal case and this press conference's declaration of the family members of the victims; 'do the Russian people want to live in a country without truth', and so on, [these] are steps in a campaign against Russia. I was surprised because it was so little that justified a formal press conference.

Ukraine has four regiments with BUK missile units and one of them was in that area and its radars were all activated, so it means that they were combat ready. Although I cannot arrive at a definite conclusion, my strong feeling is that everything points to the Ukrainian side because they had the motive..."

Atlantic Council Finally Admits Ukraine's Nazi

For the uninitiated the Atlantic Council is NATO's propaganda wing. Last week the 'think tank' sent Ukraine a clear message: get your extremists and Neo-Nazis under control promptly and start taking the threat they pose seriously. In the capital Kiev, for some months now, a neo-Nazi militia has been imposing its own order with street patrols. Meanwhile the legal authorities either offer tacit approval or are helpless to stop 'Azov'..."

They wanted to block and attack an LGBT march..."

The Reality of Neo-Nazis in Ukraine is Far From Kremlin Propaganda

"As the Trump administration mulls sending weapons to Ukraine [and Canada already has], the question of far-right forces employed by the Kiev government returned to the forefront. Some Western observers claim that there are no neo-Nazi elements in Ukraine, chalking the assertion up to propaganda from Moscow. Unfortunately they are sadly mistaken. There are indeed neo-Nazi formations in Ukraine..."

Ambassador Kurt Volker: US to Drastically Expand Military Assistance to Ukraine

Washington is upping the ante in Ukraine. Kurt Volker, US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations, said in an interview with the Guardian published on September 1 that “Washington is ready to expand arms supplies to Ukraine in order to build up the country’s naval and air defense forces in the face of continuing Russian support for eastern separatists.” According to him, the Trump administration was “absolutely” prepared to go further in supplying lethal weaponry to Ukrainian forces than the anti-tank missiles it delivered in AprilThey need lethal assistance.....



How much more obvious can it possibly be that Trump is working for Putin.?

Mr. Magoo

In symbiosis, both organisms benefit.

The crocodile gets clean teeth and the bird gets a free meal.


And there's a sucker born every minute.

Mr. Magoo

If he were working FOR him, that's parasitism.

If he's working WITH him, that's symbiosis.


Russia Will Stick to Minsk Accords Despite Recent Murdered DPR Head - Kremlin

"The recent murder of the head of the DPR complicates talks with Ukraine, but Russia will continue its settlement efforts under the Minsk Accords, Putin's press secretary told reporters. 'After the perpetration of this latest terrorist attack it is very difficult to discuss anything with the Ukrainian side, but this does not mean that Russia is withdrawing from the Minsk process,' President Vladimir Putin's press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Monday."


This is the Real, Americanized, Nazi-Dominated Ukraine

"The Hill newspaper was once courageous enough to post an exceptional article 'The Reality of Neo-Nazis in Ukraine is Far From Kremlin Propaganda' in which the links documented that on a thoroughly bipartisan conservative-'progressive' basis, the US Congress is essentially united in support of the Obama-created Nazi regime in Ukraine [and so ergo Canadian parliament too].  That is a grim situation but it's undoubtedly true, and it remains hidden instead of reported in American [and Canadian] 'news' media."


Azov Sea Flashpoint: Russia, Ukraine Teetering on the Brink of War

Violent Ukrainian Neo-Nazi Speaks at US Govt Org, Helps Kiev Police 'Purge' Roma

"An activist from violent Ukrainian neo-Nazi gang C14 spoke at the US government's America House Kyiv and  worked with Kiev police to 'purge' Roma citizens."

No surprise. Everybody knows. Ottawa's doors are always open to Ukrainian Nazis like Parubiyi anytime. But hey, as long as they 're giving the Russkis stress who cares. Don't ask, don't tell. 'Slava Ukraini'!

Nazis in Ukraine? We proudly train them.

""People who order the attacks are never brought to justice. In the last nine months, only one case was investigated and closed. Ninety-nine percent of the time there is impunity," said Amnesty's Guryeva."

The CBC was all over corruption in Ukraine before the regime change. Hardly a word since.


Can't imagine why? See #229, Canada trains them.

"Fascist goons and paramilitary groups act with total impunity in Ukraine. They're usually tied to the state or governing political factions. But that's a taboo subject for the western press."

Moscow Warns Kiev of 'Consequences' For Attempts to Provoke Conflict After Kerch Strait Standoff (and vid)

"Moscow has protested Kiev's 'planned' breach of Russian waters in the Kerch Strait and cautioned Ukraine's foreign backers against blowing the incident out of proportion. Russia will 'strongly' respond to similar 'provocations.'

The Ukrainian military boats on Sunday tried to pass through the Kerch Strait apparently without prior warning, both were ordered to stop by Russian border guards. A confrontation ensued, with the three ships being seized by the Russian side.

The actions  of the Ukrainian Navy 'violated the rules of passage through Russian territorial waters,' the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday, adding that Moscow has summoned an emergency UN Security Council meeting to discuss the incident. Kiev has used the clash to justify declaring martial law - something Moscow says only benefits Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko ahead of the March elections.'


"Poroshenko now calls for martial law in Ukraine under the fake pretext that the military incident at sea between Ukraine and Russia is a war. Martial law would mean canceling presidential elections that he was going to lose, and him staying in power."

Mr. Magoo

Martial law would mean canceling presidential elections that he was going to lose, and him staying in power."

"We can't hold elections right now because of the crisis" is an old one.


Another Crimean War Looms as NATO Provocations Enter Russian Waters

"A new Crimean War would be the last, but few amongst the general public realize that endless baiting of Russia the cycle of war games, sanctions and false accusations could well lead to all-out war between NATO and Russia.

Ukrainian coup-president Poroshenko, with his country mired in debts and his presidency hanging by a thread, trailing miles behind his main rival, has decided on the 'Wag the Dog' manoeuvre - look over there he cries as he mounts the most serious provocation yet by sailing military and other ships into Russian territorial waters with the inevitable Russian response..."


Russia Fires On and Captures Ukrainian Navy Ships

"Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko convened an emergency session of its war cabinet on Sunday. After that, he spoke to the country's parliament, proposing to introduce martial law for sixty days. Officials of the Ukrainian foreign ministry have since been in frenzied discussions with representatives of the EU and NATO.

Russian media reported that SU-24 fighter jets that are based in Crimea are now flying over the Russian bridge in the Kerch Strait, and that Ukraine had sent naval reinforcement to the area. A military escalation in the Azov Sea had been prepared over months with a series of provocations by the Ukrainian regime which enjoyed the full support of the EU and US imperialism.

The Poroshenko regime is also looking into pulling out of a 2003 agreement with Russia which provides for the equal division of the Azov Sea between both countries, and a ban on foreign warships entering the sea without the consent of both sides. Ukraine, pulling out of this agreeement would enable NATO warships to enter the Azov Sea.

Poroshenko's escalation of the military conflict with Russia is driven to a large measure, by the growing domestic crisis of his regime. Almost five years after an imperialist-orchestrated fascistic coup brought it to power, the Poroshenko regime is mired in crisis. Recent media reports suggested that some one million people in Ukraine live on the brink of starvation. Behind the imperialist support for the reckless provocations of hte Ukrainian regime there are long-term strategic interests in control over the Black Sea region as a key bridge between Eastern Europe and the energy-rich Middle East and Central Asia. The conflict over the Azov Sea is part of the efforts of US imperialism to curb Russian influence in both Eastern Europe and the Middle East and encircle the country with US-backed and NATO-backed regimes.

Despite all the 'Russiagate' clamor of the Democratic Party-led, right-wing opposition to Trump, his administration has actually escalated the military and political support for right-wing, anti-Russian regimes in Eastern Europe, including both Poland and Ukraine. That these US-backed provocations threaten a catastrophic escalation of the military conflict with Russia, which is already well underway through proxy forces in both Ukraine and Syria, is part of the calculation.

In an October article for the National Interest, Lyle Goldstein, a research professor at the US Naval War College, openly acknowledged the ongoing provocations by the US-backed Ukrainian regime and warned that a large-scale scenario in the Azov Sea 'would make operations in Syria look like a round of croquet...."

Why Trump's Peace Signal in Syria Could See US Clash with Russia in Ukraine

George Galloway: Islamic State in Ukraine - A Christmas Present From the West

"...It was bad enough when it was the Right Sector itself, assembled from half a dozen ultra-Nationalist groups like White Hammer, the Trident of Stepan Bandera and the Azov Group which openly uses the 'wolf's hook' symbols of the SS.

These groups are open disciples of the anti-Semitic pogromists who fell upon their Jewish neighbours and murdered them during the Nazi Occupation of the Ukraine. There was no need to wait for the trains or the concentration camps. And yet they became the instruments of policy for 'liberal' 'democracies'.

An axis of evil formed between them and the head-chopping, heart-eating crucifying killers of Islamist extremism must make a new low in western policy. And the worst possible Christmas present for the Christians of eastern Ukraine."

Canada supports. Progressives stay silent.
