Washington Collaborates with Ukrainian Neo-Nazis

In-depth Report:

The U.S. government is working with neo–Nazis in the Ukraine as part of its machinations to install a pliable pro-U.S. regime to replace the current democratically elected government.  A just-surfaced leaked recording, which the U.S. State Dept. has tacitly acknowledged as genuine, features two high U.S. officials discussing how, and with which parties and officials, they will replace the officials of the elected government of Yanukovych.

One of the opposition leaders they tag as a future ‘advisor’ to the unelected replacement government they envision is  a de facto neo-fascist and neo-nazi leader,  Oleh Tyahnybok. (officially he now claims to be a nationalist)

They refer to him as a member of “the big three” opposition leaders; and they insist that their choice of one of the new government leaders, Yatsenyuk, should talk for advice to the neo-Nazi “four times a week” after he is installed in office.

Tyahnybok is leader of the Svoboda party, originally the Social-National Party of Ukraine, with its original logo a neo-Nazi symbol.  He is on record as praising the extreme right-wing and anti-semitic group of Ukrainian partisans who collaborated with the German army, and who were ultimately defeated by the Soviet army during World War II.  These partisans, he has said, “did not fear, but took up their automatic rifles, going into the woods to fight Muscovites, Germans, Jewry and other filth.”

He has also stated that the Ukraine must be liberated from the “Moscow-Jewish mafia”  And in 2005 he signed a letter to Ukrainian leaders opposing the supposed ‘criminal activities’ of ‘organized Jewry’ which planned to impose ‘genocide’ on the Ukrainian people.  He added that Ukraine still had to be liberated from a “Moscow-Jewish mafia.” In 2005, Tyahnybok signed an open letter to Ukrainian leaders demanding a halt to the “criminal activities” of “organised Jewry,” which, he declared, was attempting to commit “genocide” against the Ukrainian people.”

The recorded conversation between Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs,  and Geoffrey Pyatt, the US ambassador to Ukraine, appears to have taken place about a month ago.

In addition to their conversation identifying him as a key player in their plans for the Ukraine, both officials appear to have friendly feelings towards Tyahnybok.  They have met face-to-face with him in the Ukraine a number of times, and Ambassador Pyatt has previously Twittered a photo of Assistant Secretary of State Nuland smiling and posing next to the pro-Nazi leader and his colleagues.

Oleh Tyahnybok is, then, one of the “big three” figures with whom the Obama administration hopes to replace the current democratically elected government.  The Obama administration is working to help install a neo-fascist leader and his party as key players in the future of the Ukraine.
