20,000 Nazis March in Kiev. The Western Media Somehow Fails to Notice

from Russian Insider

Last weekend saw Ukraine’s biggest Nazi march of modern times. Yet, the Western media and its numerous correspondents in Kiev completely ignored the story, even on social networks. This is as clear an example of press bias as you will ever encounter.

On Saturday night, up to 20,000 far-right radicals honored the 75th anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) – a paramilitary group led by Stepan Bandera, which actively collaborated with Hitler’s Germany. They brandished lit torches, smoke pellets, and flares as they chanted fascist slogans. And some participants openly gave Nazi salutes during the rally.

The leaders of the procession included Oleg Tyahnybok, an associate of US Senators John McCain and Chris Murphy, who has called for Ukraine to do more to halt the “criminal activities” of “organized Jewry.” He’s also demanded Ukrainian citizens should have their ethnic origins stamped in their passports.

Earlier in the day, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said the actions of the UPA fighters would always remain an “inspiration” and an example for future generations. This conduct included the slaughter of tens of thousands of Jews and Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia from 1943 to 1944.

So, we had a major Nazi gathering in a European capital and the only English language sources that show up in a Google News search are from RT, Sputnik, The Nation and a half-hearted seven-sentence ‘report’ by US state broadcaster RFE/RL, which meekly describes them as mere “nationalists.” That means there is nothing from CNN, the Guardian, the New York Times, Washington Post or the BBC, among the usual suspects who make every little protest in Russia headline news…

  4. Speaking of McCain and “Nazis”….

    What was McCain’s attack on Trump’s nationalsim all about…
    McCain used the “Nazi” term, “blood and soil.”

    “We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil,” McCain said.


  5. I’ll stick up for the vast majority of Ukrainian citizen here: the *vast* majority of Ukrainians do not support these jerks, absolutely disavow fascism and the right sector, and remember well how their grandparents’ generation suffered; first under Soviet collectivisation and subsequently under German Nazi occupation!

    It should be noted for instance that far-right parties poll consistently far lower at general elections than they do in the EU comparing for example with, Jobbik in Hungary, AfD in Germany etc..

    These assholes do not represent the Ukrainian people!
