Kiev: Washington’s Barbaric Junta

Washington has been constantly meddling in the Ukraine since it became an independent country in 1991. $5 billion were spent bribing corrupt Ukrainian politicians into becoming US puppets and also to fund fake “protest movements” targeting anyone that refused to toe Washington’s line. Viktor Yanukovich, who had won the 2004 presidential election, was prevented from taking office by the US-orchestrated “Orange Revolution” coup. But the orange plague was beaten back and Yanukovich became president following the 2010 election.

During President Yanukovich’s administration, the Ukraine traveled on an independent course. Despite immense Western pressure, in late 2013 the Ukraine rejected an unfair trade agreement with the EU and opted instead for closer economic ties with its fellow East Slavs, Russia and Belarus. While imperfect, Yanukovich did not want to sell his country out to the IMF. US imperialism responded by unleashing fascist thugs and “useful idiot” liberal protesters upon the Ukraine’s capital, Kiev. The rainbow flag flew alongside the swastika. The mindless Maidan rioters murdered police and damaged property in the country that they claimed to love.

On February 22, 2014, Washington orchestrated its second coup in Kiev. A leaked conversation had earlier revealed Washington’s scheme to install Arseniy Yatsenyuk into power, but its revelation did not foil the plot. From a building controlled by the coup-plotters, Western mercenaries fired shots at the rioters to further radicalize them. Yanukovich was forced into exile. A brutal pro-US puppet regime, reminiscent of Pinochet’s dictatorship, was installed into power. The new junta in Kiev immediately banned the language spoken by the vast majority of the southeastern Ukraine, Russian. They threatened to ban the southeast’s political parties as well.

US imperialist strategists (like Zbigniew Brzezinski) believe that Russia can not become a superpower again without the Ukraine, which is a dubious assumption when one considers Russia’s immense geographical size. However, this curious belief was a key motive for the coup. Separating the Ukraine from Russia is also part of Washington’s larger drive for the breakup of the Russian Federation itself. Washington’s other top goal was the removal of the Russian naval base from Sevastopol in the strategic Crimean peninsula. Sevastopol is the Russian navy’s most important warm water port.

But power-mad Washington forgot about the people that actually live in the southeastern Ukraine. Large rallies against the new Kiev regime were held in Sevastopol and the West’s pro-Maidan minions were chased away. Anti-fascist militias were organized in the Crimea, which has an ethnic Russian majority. Several days later they took the Crimean parliament building in Simferopol into safe hands. Independence was soon declared. And on March 16th, almost 97% of Crimean referendum voters voted to reunify with Russia.

Angry, mournful howls filled the late winter air as Western officials gnashed their teeth in fury. The Crimean people had dashed an anti-Russia plot. Washington had wanted the world to forget that the Ukraine is a recently constructed country with disputed borders. In fact, in the USSR, the Crimea had been a part of the Russian SFSR until 1954 when the Khrushchev administration arbitrarily moved it to the Ukrainian SSR. Most of all, Washington did not want the Crimea to serve as an example to the rest of the Ukraine.

But serve an example it did. Following the Crimea’s lead, the Donbass arose as well in early April, creating the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. In retaliation, Washington ordered its Kiev puppet regime to launch a genocidal war against the Donbass. Despite a murderous assault, successful independence referendums were held in Donetsk and Lugansk on May 11th. Over 90% of votes were cast for self-rule.

Showing its complete disregard for the democratic process, the Western-installed junta continued its war against the Donbass’ people. Obama’s puppet, “President” Petro Poroshenko, boasted that he would win the war in “hours, not weeks.” But by late August, it wasn’t the junta’s pale blue and yellow flag that flew over Donetsk and it wasn’t victorious junta troops marching through Donetsk’s streets. Instead, the Donbass resistance was holding a victory parade of their own.

During the summer, the resistance had smashed the junta’s army and carved out the world’s newest, independent state, Novorossiya. The Novorossiyan freedom fighters seek to liberate the entire southeast from Uncle Sam’s clutches, overthrow the Kiev junta, and stop the eastward spread of NATO. Their bold resistance will serve as an inspiration to all those living underneath similar US-installed, neo-colonial dictatorships.

Washington’s junta only succeeded in committing unspeakable atrocities against the civilian population in the southeast, including torture, rape, organ theft, and murder. Their artillery shelled homes, businesses, Orthodox churches, and historical monuments. In addition, on May 2nd, the junta massacred dissidents in a fiery inferno inside the Odessa trade union building. Death and destruction is all that the West and its puppets have to offer the southeastern Ukraine.

Washington’s favored puppet and “prime minister”, Yatsenyuk, revealed the junta’s Nazi nature by calling the southeastern Ukrainians “subhuman.” The regime openly sends fascists from Galicia (in western Ukraine) to commit genocide against the southeastern population. The fascists are known as Banderites, the ideological followers of Stepan Bandera who massacred Poles, Jews, and other Ukrainians while collaborating with the Nazi occupation during World War II.

The world has become aware that Obama is backing Nazi thugs in the Ukraine just like he sent Wahhabi terrorists to destabilize Libya and Syria. US imperialism, despite all its “humanitarian” propaganda, has created real humanitarian catastrophes while attempting to counter its own decline and continue dominating the planet. Countless innocents have been sacrificed on an unholy altar to Wall Street. Their blood will forever be on the hands of all those in the US who still cheerlead for the Wall Street-owned Democratic Party machine, especially the pseudo “anti-war” leaders who have remained strangely silent during the Obama years.
