Russia on US-Installed Fascist Tyranny in Ukraine
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
On May 5, Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia addressed the Security Council on the May 2, 2014 Odessa, Ukraine massacre.
It followed weeks after the Obama/Biden regime’s coup replaced democratic rule in Ukraine with Nazi-infested fascist tyranny in February 2014.
US-supported Nazi Right Sector thugs massacred and wounded 100s of defenseless victims in Odessa’s trade union building and outside — unaccountably to this day.
What happened was planned in advance, perhaps with Obama/Biden regime involvement.
Conspiring with fascist thugs, police failed to intervene.
They stood aside while anti-coup victims were gunned down, strangled, bludgeoned, and hacked to death with axes.
Others were thrown alive to their death from windows.
Some eyewitnesses survived to explain what happened on that day of infamy.
Most Ukrainians in the trade union building perished. Most able to exit alive were murdered outside.
Official accounts suppressed what happened, including by Western media.
The NYT was part of the coverup. On May 4, 2014, it quoted then-US installed prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyk’s false narrative.
Blaming victims of mass slaughter, he said the following:
“There were dozens of casualties resulting from a well-prepared and organized action” by victims he called “terrorist(s)” allied with Russia (sic).
The Times and other Western media refused to debunk the Big Lie.
Calling victims “pro-Russia,” the Times falsely accused them of “carry(ing) bowie knives (during) clashes involving bats, pistols and firebombs.”
Hundreds killed or wounded were defenseless unarmed civilians, what the Times and other establishment media suppressed.
A year after the massacre, Russia’s Foreign Ministry slammed the US-installed Kiev regime for failing to “take any tangible steps toward an objective, independent and impartial investigation of this horrific crime.”
On Wednesday, Russia’s UN envoy Nebenzia noted that last February “marked the 7th anniversary of the (US-orchestrated) coup d’etat and beginning of a deep crisis in Ukraine,” adding:
What happened in 2014 devastated the lives and welfare “of common Ukrainians, (around) 40% of whom are Russian-speaking.”
Following the US-orchestrated Maidan coup, “extremists, criminals and revisionists” usurped power.
For the past seven years, Russian nationals in Ukraine “face(d) prosecution, violence or even death.”
An investigation of the May 2014 Odessa massacre “remains unheard by Kiev and the perpetrators are yet to be brought to justice.”
What happened at the time was and remains “only one of numerous manifestations of neo-nazism and violent nationalism in Ukraine which since 2014 became a key factor that split the Ukrainian society.”
“Another major tragedy followed just a week after, when on May 9, 2014 in Mariupol, fire was opened against a crowd of people celebrating the Victory Day, killing 9 and injuring 42 persons,” Nebenzia explained.
Ukraine today is infested with US/Western-supported extremist groups.
They include “brigades, battalions and other sorts of fighters united in arms against those Ukrainians who do not share their extremist and sometimes criminal values,” Nebenzia stressed.
These elements are involved with Ukrainian conscripts along the contact line with the People’s Republic of Donetsk and Lugansk in Donbass.
They’re breaching agreed on ceasefire daily by “firing at civilians including women and children.”
Nebenzia called what’s going on a “large-scale military operation” against Donbass civilians in harm’s way.
Since the US-orchestrated Maidan coup, Russia regularly “receive(s) information about crimes and atrocities by the (US-installed) Ukrainian (regime) and the ultra-nationalist far-right groups against Russian-speaking population.”
“But this information unfortunately is completely blocked in the West”— pretending fascist tyranny is legitimate governance.
Ukraine today is a festering hot spot in Europe’s heartland along Russia’s border.
On May 5, Tass reported that the Kiev regime “dug out about 400 kilometers of anti-tank trenches on the border with Russia.”
Is the project part of a US plot for Kiev-initiated cross-border violence to be falsely blamed on Moscow?
On May 6, interventionist Blinken and 3rd-highest-ranking State Department official/hardcore neocon/closet fascist Victoria Nuland are in Kiev.
On Wednesday, a so-called Foggy Bottom “fact sheet” defied reality as follows, saying:
The Biden regime “is deeply concerned about Russia’s ongoing aggressive actions (sic) and rhetoric targeting Ukraine (sic), including the increased Russian troop presence in occupied Crimea (sic) and around Ukraine’s borders (sic).”
In late April, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu ordered Russian forces engaged in scheduled military exercises within the country’s Southern and Western Military Districts “returned to their permanent deployment points” well back from Ukraine’s border.
This was completed on or before April 30.
Nonbelligerent Russia poses no threat to Ukraine or any other countries.
Phony claims otherwise by Biden regime hardliners are all about gratuitously bashing Moscow — and Vladimir Putin personally.
“(E)scalat(ion)” is longstanding US/NATO policy — polar opposite how Russia operates.
As ordered by its higher power in Washington, Kiev is in flagrant breach of Minsk I and II conflict resolution measures, as well as ceasefire agreed on in July 2020.
A state of permanent war by the US-installed Ukrainian regime against Donbass has been ongoing since April 2014 — with no end of it in prospect because dominant US hardliners reject conflict resolution.
On Tuesday, Donetsk People’s Republic head Denis Pushilin said the following:
“…Ukrainian authorities show not only their intractability but also the inability to settle the conflict peacefully because (pro-Western puppet president) Zelensky cannot (or will not) control his gunmen.”
“If this is not stopped, the situation will store up terrible consequences” on both sides of the contact line.
“We insist on Ukraine holding the ceasefire violators responsible.”
“Lawlessness and arbitrariness committed by Ukrainian armed formations members on the contact line must be stopped.”
Biden regime hardliners have other ideas.
Blinken, Nuland and others in their entourage are in Kiev to plot their next hostile moves against Russia and Donbass.
