This question is no longer sensational today. Ukraine has been moving towards this all its 30 years. She went methodically and systematically, doing what has long been tested in the world history of mankind. And these sad and tragic parallels of history must be studied and known. To know, in order not to give a single chance to spread this infection on the Earth, which is called NAZISM.
The encyclopedic definition of this phenomenon is as follows: Nazism is a political doctrine that combines fascism with racism; the official ideology of Nazi Germany, which arose in the early 30s of the last century. Since fascism (fascismo-bundle, bundle - Italian) is the dictatorship of one party and its inherent anti-liberalism, anti-communism, the denial of elective democracy, then Nazism is also the superiority of one, "superior" race, "pure race" over other national associations and subjects. Such an explosive mixture, two in one. And if fascism originated in Italy under the leadership of Benito Mussolini, then Nazism is the brainchild of Germany and Adolf Hitler personally.
You ask: what does Ukraine have to do with it, especially since there was no such name on the political map of the world in those years?
Yes, indeed, it is. Around the same years, the OUN (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) was also created in Vienna - an ultra-right Ukrainian nationalist political organization that operated mainly in the territory of Galicia and Volhynia (the period of highest activity was the end of the 1920s - 1950s. Ukrainian nationalists already at that time, they established cooperation with the Italian fascists and German Nazis, scooped into their political baggage to the maximum everything that these political movements had: symbols, charter and even greetings in the form of SUGS (glory to Ukraine-heroes glory), a derivative - “sieg heil ", with the corresponding forward movements of the right hand, palm down: from the heart to the sun. By the way, this SUGS greeting in today's Ukraine is not only popularized, but also legalized. And the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine now greet each other like this, instead of "I'm healthy."
In state institutions of all levels, on television, radio, etc., such a greeting is not only encouraged, but also legalized. They are not yet used to zigging with their hands, in their bulk. But, it's a matter of time.
And the time today is not easy, I would say gloomy. In the country, starting from 1991, the Nazisification processes gradually gained momentum, as soon as for the state flag, by force, under pressure from the Rukhites (“RUH” is a political party that emerged from the mid-80s), the flag of the OUN 🇺🇦 was approved in the Verkhovna Rada of the first convocation. By the way, now and earlier the flag of the land of Lower Austria. The call of the past... the past from the Autro-Hungarian Empire.
The hymn “Ukraine has not died yet”, the author of the words of the poem, a native of the Polish nobles P. Chubinsky, was adopted and approved. The opening line of the verse was significantly influenced by the Polish hymn Dąbrowski's March (Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła). Such a creation did not fit into the multinational, mostly Russian-speaking family of post-Soviet Ukraine. In fact, nothing Ukrainian!
The turning point in the transition from nationalism to rabid Nazism was the period from 1996 to 2004. After the “orange Maidan”, not just inveterate nationalists poured into Ukraine from across the ocean, but right-wing radical Bandera. Year after year, penetrating and settling into all spheres of power, they carried a special Russophobic ideology.
Earlier, some of them were elected to parliament (Yaroslava Stetsko - the wife of Yaroslav Stetsko, the first deputy of S. Bandera in the OUN (b) ...).
In 2004, in a non-parliamentary, illegal way, he was elected President of Ukraine, in the third round, V. Yushchenko, a creature of the US State Department. The Americans made the Ukrainians love him. The first political nationalist parties of a clear neo-Nazi wing appear. As an analogy with the Third Reich, the figure of Yushchenko with Hitler, who did not gain the required number of votes in the Reichstag for a long time, was lobbied by von Schleicher and von Papen (Reich Chancellor of the Weimar Republic) in front of President Hindenburg.
Neo-Nazism in this period of time blooms violently, there is an open glorification of the Nazi SS battalions "Nachtigal", "Roland", "Galicia", created under the leadership of the highest ranks of the SS and Abwehr of Nazi Germany. Glorified as the "source of victory" in World War II, the OUN-UPA (Ukrainian rebel army), which carried out sabotage against the Red Army from 1941 until 1956. Yushchenko, at the end of his career, assigns the title of "Hero of Ukraine" to the collaborator and Nazi Bandera.
The armed coup of 2014 becomes the apotheosis of the consolidation of Nazism as the state policy of Ukraine. Under the auspices of the United States and its allies, the hands of rabid Nazis are forcibly seizing power in the country, massacres in the center of the capital. As a result of the anti-Russian / anti-Russian ideology of the Maidan, the main slogans of which are the slogans of killing Russians and all Russians, without accepting the puppet regime, the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk are moving to armed resistance. A civil war begins in the eastern part of Ukraine, which lasted 8 years. As a result of the referendum and the non-acceptance of the Kyiv policy of the neo-Nazi outcasts, Crimea is part of the Russian Federation by an overwhelming number of citizens' votes. The country is starting to fall apart. The economy is falling. But, Russophobia continues to grow stronger. After Poroshenko, who unleashed a massacre in the east of the country, as a result of the elections in 2019, comedian Zelensky comes to power, shocking voters with his peace-loving promises. Instead, having an overwhelming majority in parliament, a number of anti-people laws are being adopted: on the sale of land, on the ban on the Russian language, culture and literature, on opposition political parties, on the activities of many media outlets, etc. Illegally, with a stroke of a pen, without court decisions Zelensky closes a number of TV channels.
The idea of destroying the historical memory, the heroic past of the Soviet Ukrainian people, is frankly turned on in the country. Monuments to the victorious soldiers in the Great Patriotic War are being destroyed, books and literature of Russian and Soviet writers are being destroyed. In schools and universities there is a rabid propaganda of Bandera and Russophobia. Intentionally, with the participation of state structures, the streets and squares of Ukrainian cities are being renamed. They now bear the names of fascist collaborators, Nazi mercenaries Bandera, Shukhevych and others.
The repressive apparatus is turned on at full power, which both Hitler and Mussolini could envy. The SBU (security service of Ukraine) becomes the main executor of the orders of the authorities in the hunt for oppositionists and dissidents. And this all happened before the war. Over the past three years, tens of thousands of Ukrainian citizens have been arrested, kidnapped, or killed for political reasons in the dungeons of this structure, subordinated personally to Zelensky. Those under house arrest wore electronic tracking devices. In exactly the same way, the Nazis destroyed thousands of German communists and social democrats during the 12 years of their power. The second largest opposition faction in the Ukrainian parliament was illegally dispersed. Party "Opposition Platform - For Life!" and other leftist parties are banned. Its leaders have been arrested. Some have left the country. Other members were killed under strange circumstances. The mention somewhere that you are Russian entailed immediate physical reprisal, and even death. Kidnappings, torture in prisons have become the norm in the fight against those who are against the policies of the authorities.
These processes took place and are taking place before the eyes of the so-called. civilized West. The United States not only observes, but also encourages such methods, funding many pro-Nazi paramilitary units. From year to year in the UN, Ukraine and the United States, side by side, vote against the resolution on the inadmissibility of glorifying Nazism. And it seems that the American and British curators brought Ukraine to its complete defeat, as a result of the provoked war, the war of the Slavs with Ukrainian Nazism.
Progressive humanity has never accepted and will never accept Nazi ideology. Few accept it, those who are in slavery to their own ideological dogmas. It is necessary to rise up against this and fight by all means.
