Top Dems are involved in the plundering of the Ukraine: new names, mind-boggling accounts. The mysterious ‘whistleblower’ whose report had unleashed the impeachment is named in the exclusive interview given to the Unz Review by a prominent Ukrainian politician, an ex-Member of Parliament of four terms, a candidate for Ukraine’s presidency, Oleg Tsarev.

Mr Tsarev, a tall, agile and graceful man, a good speaker and a prolific writer, had been a leading and popular Ukrainian politician before the 2014 putsch; he stayed in the Ukraine after President Yanukovych’s flight; ran for the Presidency against Mr Poroshenko, and eventually had to go to exile due to multiple threats to his life. During the failed attempt to secede, he was elected the speaker of the Parliament of Novorossia (South-Eastern Ukraine). I spoke to him in Crimea, where he lives in the pleasant seaside town of Yalta. Tsarev still has many supporters in the Ukraine, and is a leader of the opposition to the Kiev regime.

Oleg, you followed Biden story from its very inception. Biden is not the only Dem politician involved in the Ukrainian corruption schemes, is he?

Indeed, John Kerry, the Secretary of State in Obama’s administration, was his partner-in-crime. But Joe Biden was number one. During the Obama presidency, Biden was the US proconsul for Ukraine, and he was involved in many corruption schemes. He authorised transfer of three billion dollars of the US taxpayers’ money to the post-coup government of the Ukraine; the money was stolen, and Biden took a big share of the spoils.

It is a story of ripping the US taxpayer and the Ukrainian customer off for the benefit of a few corruptioners, American and Ukrainian. And it is a story of Kiev regime and its dependence on the US and IMF. The Ukraine has a few midsize deposits of natural gas, sufficient for domestic household consumption. The cost of its production was quite low; and the Ukrainians got used to pay pennies for their gas. Actually, it was so cheap to produce that the Ukraine could provide all its households with free gas for heating and cooking, just like Libya did. Despite low consumer price, the gas companies (like Burisma) had very high profits and very little expenditure.

After the 2014 coup, IMF demanded to raise the price of gas for the domestic consumer to European levels, and the new president Petro Poroshenko obliged them. The prices went sky-high. The Ukrainians were forced to pay many times more for their cooking and heating; and huge profits went to coffers of the gas companies. Instead of raising taxes or lowering prices, President Poroshenko demanded the gas companies to pay him or subsidise his projects. He said that he arranged the price hike; it means he should be considered a partner.

Burisma Gas company had to pay extortion money to the president Poroshenko. Eventually its founder and owner Mr Nicolai Zlochevsky decided to invite some important Westerners into the company’s board of directors hoping it would moderate Poroshenko’s appetites. He had brought in Biden’s son Hunter, John Kerry, Polish ex-President Kwasniewski; but it didn’t help him.

Poroshenko became furious that the fattened calf may escape him, and asked the Attorney General Shokin to investigate Burisma trusting some irregularities would emerge. AG Shokin immediately discovered that Burisma had paid these ‘stars’ between 50 and 150 thousand dollar per month each just for being on the list of directors. This is illegal by the Ukrainian tax code; it can’t be recognised as legitimate expenditure.

At that time Biden the father entered the fray. He called Poroshenko and gave him six hours to close the case against his son. Otherwise, one billion dollars of the US taxpayers’ funds won’t pass to the Ukrainian corruptioners. Zlochevsky, the Burisma owner, paid Biden well for this conversation: he received between three and ten million dollars, according to different sources.

AG Shokin said he can’t close the case within six hours; Poroshenko sacked him and installed Mr Lutsenko in his stead. Lutsenko was willing to dismiss the case of Burisma, but he also could not do it in a day, or even in a week. Biden, as we know, could not keep his trap shut: by talking about the pressure he put on Poroshenko, he incriminated himself. Meanwhile Mr Shokin gave evidence that Biden put pressure on Poroshenko to fire him, and now it was confirmed. The evidence was given to the US lawyers in connection with another case, Firtash case.

What is Firtash Case?

The Democrats wanted to get another Ukrainian oligarch, Mr Firtash, to the US and make him to confess that he illegally supported Trump’s campaign for the sake of Russia. Firtash had been arrested in Vienna, Austria; there he fought extradition to the US. His lawyers claimed it is purely political case, and they used Mr Shokin’s deposition to substantiate their claim. For this reason, the evidence supplied by Shokin is not easily reversible, even if Shokin were willing, and he is not. He also stated under oath that the Democrats pressurised him to help and extradite Firtash to the US, though he had no standing in this purely American issue. It seems that Mrs Clinton believes that Firtash’s funds helped Trump to win elections, an extremely unlikely thing [says Mr Tsarev].

Talking about Burisma and Biden; what is this billion dollars of aid that Biden could give or withhold?


It is USAID money, the main channel of the US aid for “support of democracy”. First billion dollars of USAID came to the Ukraine in 2014. This was authorised by Joe Biden, while for Ukraine, the papers were signed by Mr Turchinov, the “acting President”. The Ukrainian constitution does not know of such a position, and Turchinov, “the acting President” had no right to sign neither a legal nor financial document. Thus, all the documents that were signed by him, in fact, had no legal force. However, Biden countersigned the papers signed by Turchynov and allocated money for Ukraine. And the money was stolen – by the Democrats and their Ukrainian counterparts.

Two years ago, (that is already under President Trump) the United States began to investigate the allocation of 3 billion dollars; it was allocated in 2014, in 2015, in 2016; one billion dollars per year. The investigation showed that the documents were falsified, the money was transferred to Ukraine, and stolen. The investigators tracked each payment, discovered where the money went, where it was spent and how it was stolen.

As a result, in October 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice opened a criminal case for “Abuse of power and embezzlement of American taxpayers’ money”. Among the accused there are two consecutive Finance Ministers of the Ukraine, Mrs Natalie Ann Jaresko who served 2014-2016 and Mr Alexander Daniluk who served 2016-2018, and three US banks. The investigation caused the USAID to cease issuing grants since August 2019. As Trump said, now the US does not give away money and does not impose democracy.

The money was allocated with the flagrant violation of American law. There was no risk assessment, no audit reports. Normally the USAID, when allocating cash, always prepares a substantial package of documents. But the billions were given to Ukraine completely without documents. The criminal case on the embezzlement of USAID funds had been signed personally by the US Attorney General, so these issues are very much alive.

Sam Kislin was involved in this investigation. He is a good friend and associate of Giuliani, Trump’s lawyer and an ex-mayor of New York. Kislin is well known in Kiev, and I have many friends who are Sam’s friends [said Tsarev]. I learned of his progress, because some of my friends were detained in the United States, or interrogated in Ukraine. They briefed me about this. It appears that Burisma is just the tip of the scandal, the tip of the iceberg. If Trump will carry on, and use what was already initiated and investigated, the whole headquarters of the Democratic party will come down. They will not be able to hold elections. I have no right to name names, but believe me, leading functionaries of the Democratic party are involved.

Poroshenko was aware of that; he gave orders to declare Sam Kislin persona non grata. Once the old man (he is over 80) flew into Kiev airport and he was not allowed to come in; he spent the night in detention and was flown back to the US next day. Poroshenko had been totally allied with Clinton camp.

And President Zelensky? Is he free from Clintonite Democrats’ influence?

If he were, there would not be the scandal of Trump phone call. How the Democrats learned of this call and its alleged content? The official version says there was a CIA man, a whistle-blower, who reported to the Democrats. What the version does not clarify, where this whistle-blower was located during the call. I tell you, he was located in Kiev, and he was present at the conversation, at the Ukrainian President Zelensky’s side. This man was (perhaps) a CIA asset, but he also was a close associate of George Soros, and a Ukrainian high-ranking official. His name is Mr Alexander Daniluk. He is also the man the investigation of Sam Kislin and of the DoJ had led to, the Finance Minister of Ukraine at the time, the man who was responsible for the embezzlement of three billion US taxpayer’s best dollars. The DoJ issued an order for his arrest. Naturally he is devoted to Biden personally, and to the Dems in general. I would not trust his version of the phone call at all.

Daniluk was supposed to accompany President Zelensky on his visit to Washington; but he was informed that there is an order for his arrest. He remained in Kiev. And soon afterwards, the hell of the alleged leaked phone call broke out. Zelensky administration investigated and concluded that the leak was done by Mr Alexander Daniluk, who is known for his close relations with George Soros and with Mr Biden. Alexander Daniluk had been fired. (However, he did not admit his guilt and said the leak was done by his sworn enemy, the head of president’s administration office, Mr Andrey Bogdan, who allegedly framed Daniluk.)

This is not the only case of US-connected corruption in Ukraine. There is Amos J. Hochstein, a protege of former VP Joe Biden, who has served in the Barack Obama administration as the Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources. He still hangs on the Ukraine. Together with an American citizen Andrew Favorov, the Deputy Director of Naftogas he organised very expensive “reverse gas import” into Ukraine. In this scheme, the Russian gas is bought by Europeans and afterwards sold to Ukraine with a wonderful margin. In reality, gas comes from Russia directly, but payments go via Hochstein. It is much more costly than to buy directly from Russia; Ukrainian people pay, while the margin is collected by Hochstein and Favorov. Now they plan to import liquefied gas from the United States, at even higher price. Again, the price will be paid by the Ukrainians, while profits will go to Hochstein and Favorov.

In all these scams, there are people of Clinton and spooks who are fully integrated in the Democratic Party. A former head of CIA, Robert James Woolsey, now sits on the Board of Directors of Velta, producing Ukrainian titanium. Woolsey is a neocon, a member of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), pro-Israel think-tank, and a man who relentlessly pushed for Iraq war. A typical Democrat spook, now he gets profits from Ukrainian ore deposits.


One of the best Ukrainian corruption stories is connected with Audrius Butkevicius, the former Minister of Defence (1996 to 2000) and a Member of the Seimas (Parliament) of post-Soviet Lithuania. Mr AB is supposedly working for MI6, and now is a member of the notorious Institute for Statecraft, a UK deep state propaganda outfit involved in disinformation operations, subversion of the democratic process and promoting Russophobia and the idea of a new cold war. In 1991 he commanded snipers that shoot Lithuanian protesters. The kills were ascribed to the Soviet armed forces, and the last Soviet President Mr Gorbachev ordered speedy withdrawal of his troops from Lithuania. Mr AB became the Minister of Defence of his independent nation. In 1997 the Honourable Minister of Defence “had requested 300,000 USD from a senior executive of a troubled oil company for his assistance in obtaining the discontinuance of criminal proceedings concerning the company’s vast debts”, in the language of the court judgement. He was arrested on receipt of the bribe, had been sentenced to five years of jail, but a man with such qualifications was not left to rot in a prison.

In 2005 he commanded the snipers who killed protesters in Kyrgyzstan, in Georgia he repeated the feat in 2003 during the Rose Revolution. In 2014 he did it again in Kiev, where his snipers killed around a hundred men, protesters and police. He was brought to Kiev by Mr Turchinov, who called himself the “acting President” and who countersigned Joe Biden’s billion dollars’ grant.

In October 2018 the name of Mr AB came up again. Military warehouses of Chernigov had caught fire; allegedly thousands of shells stored for fighting the separatists had been destroyed by fire. And it was not the first fire of this kind: the previous one, equally huge, torched Ukrainian army warehouses in Vinnitsa in 2017. Altogether, there were 12 huge army arsenal fires for the last few years. Just for 2018, the damage was over \$2 billion.

When Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoly Matios investigated the fires, he discovered that 80% of weapons and shells in the warehouses were missing. They weren’t destroyed by fire, they weren’t there in the first place. Instead of being used to kill the Russian-speaking Ukrainians of Donetsk, the hardware had been shipped from the port of Nikolaev to Syria, to the Islamic rebels and to ISIS. And the man who organised this enormous operation was our Mr AB, the old fighter for democracy on behalf of MI6, acting in cahoots with the Minister of Defence Poltorak and Mr Turchinov, the friend of Mr Biden. (They say Mr Matios was given \$10 million for his silence).

The loss was of Ukrainian people, and of US taxpayers, while the beneficiaries were the Deep State, which is probably just another name for the deadly mix of spooks, media and politicians.

    The globalist criminal elites will not be held responsible for any of these crimes. They’re bound together by ties of blackmail forged by guys like Epstein, mutually assured incrimination in serial swindles which cross Left and Right political boundaries and literal murder in the case of guys like Seth Rich. The cozy proximity of recently-murdered Epstein himself to crypto-converso AG Barr’s family only makes me more certain that they will get away with this heist like they’ve done with dozens of other billion-dollar swindles.

    If they were only stealing money it would be bad enough, but the fact that these same grifters are our “diplomats” and warmakers is positively Orwellian. Watching these petty hoodlums play nuclear chicken with Russia so they can squeeze more shekels from the supine Ukraine would be laughable if I could get the first-strike nightmares of my Cold War childhood out of my head long enough to laugh.

    Actually, the central figure here is Trump, who used backchannels to get the Ukraine government to investigate Biden, even though a top justice official there said Biden was not involved in any corruption. We can speculate as to who is the whistleblower, but the article tries to paint the person as being THE sole person responsible for bringing malfeasance to the attention of the American government. It is an allegation, NOT definitive proof.

    Love it. In fact the whole Ukraine “most blatant coup in history” was under Biden’s purview, and he’s publicly (at the UN) demeaned and insulted the installed puppet, just to make that clear. But whereas, as Biff said, the American public are completely behind plundering other countries and their resources, it’s hard to know what effect this will have in choosing the next figurehead. Goes for both parties. Trump supporters are apparently delighted at prospect of commandeering oil, minerals, whatever from wherever.

    I suggest you try again.

    The article states:

    Since 1992, the government has spent about \$5.1 billion to support democracy-building programs in Ukraine, Thompson said, with money flowing mostly from the Department of State via U.S. Agency for International Development, as well as the departments of Defense, Energy, Agriculture and others.

    That’s pretty much the modern definition of regime change.

    Since then, another \$3B has been tossed into the Ukrainian cesspool to keep the post coup govt bought. So, it’s at least \$8B so far, though we’ve yet to learn how much of that went directly into American pockets so we don’t know what the Ukrainian govt itself cost.

    “That’s pretty much the modern definition of regime change.”

    According to Who/Whom? Remember, the perception was that President Yanukovych prior to his legitimate ouster was establishing closer ties with Russia, much to the chagrin of the general public. President Yanukovych accepted money—\$2 billion out of a \$15 billion package—from Russia, who pressured him to take decisive action against dissenters. A police assault on the rallies that were held to protest against the government was ordered hours after the \$2 billion from Russia was transferred to Ukrainian banks. European nations blamed Russia for exacerbating the violence.

    Can you say quid pro quo? Good grrl!

    Furthermore, you conveniently left out the context at the end the paragraph–Since 1992, the government has spent about \$5.1 billion to support democracy-building programs in Ukraine, Thompson said, with money flowing mostly from the Department of State via U.S. Agency for International Development, as well as the departments of Defense, Energy, Agriculture and others. The United States does this with hundreds of other countries.

    So does “Mother Russia” and China! It is “seed” money to sway influence.

    “The article states…”

    It was the \$5 billion given to Ukraine WHEN it broke away from the Soviet Union in 1992, NOT given to the Ukraine to incite the rebellion there in 2015. So you are promoting a distorted understanding of the situation here.

    “95% of products that Ukraine produced Russia bought – nobody wants much of anything from eastern Europe.”

    Do you have a source for your statistic, or are you making it up on the fly? The top export destinations of Ukraine are Russia (\$4.25B), Poland (\$2.69B), Italy (\$2.66B), Turkey (\$2.59B) and Egypt (\$2.46B).

    “Russia did not plunder their decrepid economy, they all but kept it taped together.”

    Not really. Ukraine is the 50th largest export economy in the world and the 39th most complex economy according to the Economic Complexity Index (ECI). In 2017, Ukraine exported \$46.1B and imported \$51.7B, resulting in a negative trade balance of \$5.57B. In 2017 the GDP of Ukraine was \$112B and its GDP per capita was \$8.67k.

    “Since the coup, Russia no longer does much business with Ukraine, and the only thing keeping Ukraine’s dying economy alive is loot from the EU.”

    Depends how you define “does much business”. In 2017, Ukraine imported 14.5% of all its imports from Russia.

If in October of 2018 the DOJ opened a criminal investigation into \$3 billion abuse of power and embezzlement of funds scheme against 2 people and 3 banks surely this would be reported somewhere? A DOJ press release? A court filing? Bank or SEC filings? Some kind of newspaper? I know the media is crap but this should have some kind of paper trail. A search for names gets some wiki pages but no reporting of the allegations or investigations or trials or convictions to be found.

    About that Ukraine Money

    WASHINGTON — As the United States readies \$1 billion in loan guarantees to the new government in Ukraine, along with even more aid for reforming elections and cleaning up corruption, one thing is clear: The public is unlikely to know where that money is going for some time, if ever.
    Since 1992, the U.S. has sent \$3 billion to \$5 billion in aid to Ukraine, with only cursory public disclosure. The U.S. State Department operates an online database,, but names of foreign recipients are often left out, and entire sections are blank. Furthermore, the disclosure often comes long after the money has been distributed.

    The spending by U.S. government agencies often flows through for-profit companies, including PACT, Democracy International, and Chemonics International. The path of this money creates another layer obscuring the final source of U.S. foreign aid, as the companies distribute money to non-governmental organizations in Ukraine, or to other countries.

    @Gina to the Hague: How right you are – the CIA is not just a criminal enterprise – its part of the shadow government and doesn’t answer to US authorities.

    The CIA will be dismantled because it can not be cleaned up due to its gallery of rogue mercenaries engineering wars all over the planet and having billions of dollars available to them to cause havoc even in the US as we see and watch the continuous coup against president Trump.

    They do much worse than what many want admit namely the sale and sex trafficking of children including their MK Ultra now called ORION experiments.
    Remember Hitler did not lose the war and the US leadership imported many of the Nazis via Operation Paper Clip and provide them with new identities.

    Even Dr Mengele aka Angel of Death operated in the US with the CIA teaching them about MK Ultra. Most Americans have no idea nor do they know that old Bush – now diseased – aka as Georg Scherff was their first Manchurian president.
    His involvement with the assassination of JFK is no secret.

    Having said that it is clear that the coup in Ukraine by the US state department/HRC/Hussein served as their means to antagonize Russia even go so far and using the deep state agent CrowdStrike attempting to frame Russia for the fires that occurred. CrowdStrike quietly removed their accusation against Russia.

    That the democrats and no name McCain plundered Ukraine while planting a highly corrupt political leadership in power making their theft of billions of dollars so much easier.

    We also know that Burisma is just the tip of the iceberg as stated in this article ergo the apoplectic fury of the democrats against president Trump and his plan/goal to expose these rogues in Ukraine.

    Why not Kerry or Biden? The whole business stinks to high heavens. What I find revealing and relevant is the fact that it took so long for the shit to hit the fan, not that criminals run and profit from the US government. After all the whole political apparatus is a criminal organization. (See today’s report by the Russian military about the looting of Syria’s oil).

    The shocking revelation is that the US criminal gang passing off as a government is unashamedly open about its criminality, without even a pretence for decency. The Epstein’s skulduggery is another recent pointer about the nature of the corrupt beast.

    When, shortly after the Maidan coup, it was openly announced that Biden’s son was appointed to the board of that oil company, alarm bells should have rung everywhere in the US media and establishment that something fishy was going on. Yet, nothing was done and the whole scam would run its normal course like many others that do not come to light but for some unforeseeable strike of chance or fate.

    I, for one, and without inside knowledge, just using the garden variety critical faculties human beings are endowed with, knew that it was wrong from an ethical point of view even if the deal was an act of kindness performed by lilly white angels, let alone by corrupt politicians.

    The loss was of Ukrainian people, and of US taxpayers, while the beneficiaries were the Deep State, which is probably just another name for the deadly mix of spooks, media and politicians.

    Israel Shamir doesn’t go all the way.

    The deadly mix includes the “international.” ZOG and Cabala are usurers and rent seekers.

    Their ideology is not for humanity in general, but for their in-group and sayanim followers.

    If one looks close at international credit at debt, then the underlying mechanism becomes clear.

    People are hypothecated with debt when associated bank credit is created simultaneously. This also happens at at national levels with public debt. The debt instrument is on-sold into “international markets” and the credit (as pseudo money) is made international. The dollar is not U.S. legal dollars, but instead is Federal Reserve Notes. FRN’s have been made international, and hence can be spent in Ukraine, where channels are opened for siphoning off rents, as in the case of Biden and the DNC.

    Moneys true nature is law. Never let your money extend past your law, which in turns means your national borders.

    Nazi Germany traded internatioinally using Schacht’s trading banks. This trading scheme isolated national debt instruments within the trading banks, and also isolated the money flows. For example, if Germany demanded Tin from Burma, then Burmese were paid in Kyat. When Burma ordered goods from Germany, German workers were paid in Reichsmarks. Is it no wonder the “international” went berserk over Nazi Germany? The international couldn’t run their crime schemes and make illicit profits on Germany.

    Keyne’s Bancor scheme would also work, where trading nations pay for goods exchange in an accounting unit that relates only to goods in transit, and also signals for national exchange rate adjustment.

    In other words, the Jew has a headlock on people’s brain-space, and they don’t know how to think.

    The money problem is the central problem, and all other is merely knock on effects. Biden and the DNC and our (((friends))) would have hard time running their international crime syndicates without “international” money they control.

    The deep state deadly mix of spooks and politicians are all closely related phenomenon. For example, Petrodollars would recycle from Saudi and Qatar through CIA to purchase weapons from MIC. Saudi in turn is not allowed to have their own Sovereign money by virtue 1973 Saudi/Kissinger agreement. Saudi’s are required to price oil in dollars, and recycle dollar savings into TBills (debt instruments held in western private corporate stock owned banks).

    Saudi are boyeez of the International since MI6 “Lawrence of Arabia” coup, and subsequent moves by the then deep state. The deep state is closely allied with international banking and their “credit,” which they attempt to make above national laws, while simultaneously abusing the nation’s peoples.

  92. Why must we love Jews or any people unconditionally? People should like or dislike another people based on observation and experience. For example, if someone spends time in Iran and comes away with generally negative impression of Iranians as people and culture, so what? Then, the same rule should apply to Jews. Why must we always pretend Jews are perfect and pure as snow? Maybe some people have good reason to dislike Jews based on historical experience. For example, Palestinians lost their land to Zionist imperialists. Why should they like Jews? Millions of Arabs died in wars for Israel cooked up by Neocons.

    Heavily Jewish Hollywood has given us tons of Asian villains, Arab terrorist villains, and Russians as bad guys. Hollywood often features blonde and blue eyed people as neo-nazi ‘white supremacist’ subhuman scum. The media(not controlled by Eskimos) spew hatred toward Iranians, Arabs, Muslims, Russians, and ‘deplorable’ White Christians all the time. It seems it’s a-okay for Jews in media to spread hatred, hysteria, and paranoia about Russians and Iranians.

    Jews are not god. Jews are not holy. We don’t have to worship Jews, just like we don’t demand that others worship or obey us. If a people have bad experience with Jews in general, they have every right to feel anti-Jewish. After all, many Jews harbor anti-German and Anti-Russian sentiments because of their troubled histories and experiences with Germans and Russians. Okay, fine. But did it ever occur to Jews that maybe they’ve done things that deeply upset OTHER peoples and that’s why some people have negative views of Jews. Can any honest person say Palestinians have no reason to hate Jewish Power?

    They briefed me about this. It appears that Burisma is just the tip of the scandal, the tip of the iceberg. If Trump will carry on, and use what was already initiated and investigated, the whole headquarters of the Democratic party will come down. They will not be able to hold elections. I have no right to name names, but believe me, leading functionaries of the Democratic party are involved.

    How naive! The idea that the gang of criminals in the elite would ever be taken down by something like this is laughable. They’ve populated and corrupted the judicial system and the media with their cronies; they would never allow themselves to even be put in the spotlight over this, much less held accountable.

    I still read the print edition of the New York Times every morning, and lots of the stuff they publish is so totally ridiculous I don’t believe a single word of it, especially about the Russiagate/Ukrainegate lunacy of the last couple of years.

    In one of his podcasts a few months back, Prof. Stephen Cohen described the total “Sovietization” of the American MSM. And being an eminent Soviet scholar, he wasn’t using that term in a favorable manner.

    So all things considered, that Ukrainian guy may or may not be reliable…but I’d have to see he’s probably at least as reliable as anything published in the NYT or the rest of the American MSM…

    Typical female response–if others do it, then so can I. Except the “back channel” was other than necessary. All Trump had to do was request that the Ukrainian government conduct an investigation into Biden’s son, rather than dangle an aid package as bait for compliance.

    “It seems you don’t realize that there was a crooked government BEFORE President Trump was elected or inaugurated.”

    This was the rump Rada AFTER the coup of 22 February 2014. Not quite the constitutional government. This vote was held under the guns of the gunmen of the Maidan. How legitimate is that? The Ukrainian public at the time included those who lived in the Donbass, Crimea and Odessa. The Crimea seceded, the Donbass rose in revolt and the people of Odessa were repressed following the murder of anti-Maidan protesters at the Trade Union building on 5 May 2014. There was no unanimity of support for the Maidan in Ukraine. And that is the plain and simple truth.

As the US swings wildly with sanctions against a myriad of nations, won’t those nations eventually find ways to trade and exchange in solidarity against the “international”? And as the economies of the developing countries grows along with their international clout, won’t it become increasingly clear that the current international financial system is a house of cards, with the debtor nations of the west unable to ever pay down their debt and less and less able to even service it?

    “Yats is the guy” was Nuland’s calling card for the Neo-notsee thugs to do their job on 2.22.14.

    Would the Neo-notsee thugs do their job if Nuland’s said — “Porky is the guy”?

    Nuland had to “glue this “thing” to together”.

    Nuland blessed the coup with “F–k the EU”. Under her breathe she most “likely” said “F–k the USA” also.

    Nuland is smiling from ear to ear now with Gen. Vindman doing his job with this Overseas ZUS territory.

    And despite that, the guy never became president but had to settle for PM (a much less powerful position in Ukraine) which is what he would have done no matter what if the pro-western parties came to power because he was already head of the largest pro-western party in Ukraine.

    The focus of Nuland was the “eyes on the prize”. She wanted Ukraine as an overseas ZUS territory. She got it. “Yats is the guy” was just one of the many things she said in the conversation with Pyatt.

    You also wouldn’t know that much of the Nuland-Pyatt conversation focused on how they were going to “glue this thing” or “midwife this thing,” comments sounding like prima facie evidence that the U.S. government was engaged in “regime change” in Ukraine, on Russia’s border.

    In English, we use “the”. A Slavic speaker may not use “the” in Slavic languages. In English, we do use “the” for the borders, the low lands, the states, etc. A Slavic speaker knowing what Ukraine means would say The Borderlands for the Ukraine. It is not a grave sin.

    I thought that you might be casting some aspersion on that commment, glad you found it to be funny.

    I was hoping to get your opinion on what I find to be one of the weakest points that our two clowns try to peddle within this piece. That supposedly acting Ukrainian president Turchynov hired Audrius Butkivicius to come to Kyiv and assasinate 100 Ukrainian Maydan protesters? I couldn’t find anything at all to substantiate this assertion. As I recall, Turchynov was a bible thumping Evangelical Christian of sorts, a Christian preacher, who also happened to be a Ukrainian patriot too. The whole thing smacks of too much vodka and Baltic sprats to me…

    Frank Lautenberg was a JEW US Senator who dishonestly dragged a huge amount of Soviet Jews back to the USA. The USA should never have allowed even one single JEW to infiltrate the USA from anywhere after WWII, and especially from any area or territory controlled by the Soviets. The JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire has lost any and all credibility. The JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire must be removed from power.

    Everyone knows it was coup except for you. You are in denial.

    US coups in Latin America often used the military.

    Coups don’t have to involve army tanks occupying the public squares, although that is an alternative model which follows many of the same initial steps except that the military is brought in at the end. The military coup was a common approach especially in Latin America in the 1960s and 1970s.

    The preferred method these days is the “color” revolution. Ukraine was a recent victim to this.

    But the preferred method in more recent years has been the “color revolution,” which operates behind the façade of a “peaceful” popular uprising and international pressure on the targeted leader to show restraint until it’s too late to stop the coup. Despite the restraint, the leader is still accused of gross human rights violations, all the better to justify his removal.

    This Ukraine coup woke me. I fell for the war on terror stuff. I couldn’t figure why the US was in Ukraine since we “really” had so many problems with “terror” and the Middle East. Nuland added the Neo-Nazi thug theme to her witches brew. That really woke me up to another level. Nuland, a Jewish American, does not even believe in the Big 6. She revived Nazism in a large European nation in the 21st century. Obviously, she does not believe in it. Then why should anyone else believe it anymore too.

    Soon after that, I looked into nine eleven. That was an Israel first game too. Thanks to Nuland, a lot of people woke in the last five years.

    This refusal to notice what was actually a remarkable story – the willful unleashing of Nazi storm troopers on a European population for the first time since World War II – reached absurd levels as The New York Times and The Washington Post buried references to the neo-Nazis at the end of stories, almost as afterthoughts.

    The Washington Post went to the extreme of rationalizing Swastikas and other Nazi symbols by quoting one militia commander as calling them “romantic” gestures by impressionable young men. [See’s “Ukraine’s ‘Romantic’ Neo-Nazi Storm Troopers.”]

    Chronology of the Ukrainian Coup: ttps://

    At about the same time Nuland was wooing fascist extremists, Sen. John McCain (R-Az) and Sen. Chris Murphy (D- Conn) shared the stage in Kiev with Tyahnybok offering their support and opposition to the sitting government.

    How and Why the US Government Perpetrated the 2014 Coup in Ukraine:

    The 27 January 2014 phone-conversation between her [Nuland-Kagan] and America’s Ambassador in Ukraine, Jeffrey Pyatt was a particularly seminal event. … Nuland famously said, on that call “Fuck the EU,” and she instructed Pyatt to choose instead the rabidly anti-Russian, and far-right, Arseniy Yatsenyuk. This key event occurred 24 days before Ukraine’s President Victor Yanukovych was overthrown on February 20th, and 30 days before the new person to head Ukraine’s Government, Yatsenyuk, became officially appointed to rule the now clearly fascist country. He won that official designation on February 26th. However, this was only a formality: Obama’s agent had already chosen him, on January 27th.

    2014 Ukraine coup:

    The western commercially-controlled media was full of the wrath of the righteous, pompous demonization of Russia with little reflection that the US-UK-NATO might have clandestine purposes. … A leaked telephone call between Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt complicates the construction of a half-way credible Official Narrative, as does the leaked telephone conversation between Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Peat and EU foreign affairs spokeswoman Catherine Ashton …

    …George Friedman, founder and CEO of Stratfor, said of the overthrow of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych that occurred on February 22nd of 2014: “It really was the most blatant coup in history.” …

    The Jewish population of Ukraine numbers 65,000 which is about 0.28% of the total. In spite of that minuscule proportion, uber-wealthy oligarchs have, since the demise of the Soviet Union, dominated the politics of Ukraine and they are overwhelmingly of Jewish lineage.

    Operation Gladio/B:

    U.S. Intelligence Officials have worked with Ukrainian Nationalists and Neo-Nazi Far-Right militia including the Ukranian National Assembly, Right Sektor, and the Svoboda party. The groups are suspected of playing a decisive role in the false flag sniper attacks in which they could be seen shooting both supporting demonstrators and policemen causing destabilization that led to the collapse of the elected Ukrainian government.

    “Battalions like “Azov” are especially fierce and brutal. They kill people, ruin their houses, steal everything from household appliances to clothes and jewelry. We don’t go out in the evenings. The streets are almost empty. I am afraid even at home because soldiers can break into citizens’ houses at any time they want. They have permission to do it from the Ukrainian government.” …

    The obvious point is Azov battalion is a symptom of a much deeper problem in the US and Ukraine.. … Any Congressman who supports this is showing their hand and that they are against American Democracy just as the Ukrainian Congressional Committee of America (UCCA) was set up to be.

    You do yourself no service endlessly distorting reality in the interests of Power.

    Reading your comments one after the other this afternoon I was reminded of an excerpt from “Mein Kampf” where Hitler perfectly summed up the dishonest conversational practices of people like you. I’d like to share it:

    “The more I argued with them, the more I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn’t help they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes, which if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know what you were talking about.

    Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again. But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn’t help but agree, and if you believed this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day. The Jew had not the slightest recollection of the day before, he rattled off his same old nonsense as though nothing at all had happened, and, if indignantly challenged, affected amazement; he couldn’t remember a thing, except that he had proved the correctness of his assertions the previous day.

    Sometimes I stood there thunderstruck.

    I didn’t know what to be more amazed at: the agility of their tongues or their virtuosity at lying. Gradually I began to hate them.”

    Why don’t you give a thought to this statement? — “…since 1991 state-owned land in Ukraine contracted by ~50%, with the rest being stolen via various schemes.” Ukrainian land has been primed for grand robbery – “Ukraine’s Ban on Selling Farmland Is Choking the Economy:”

    Here is more: Comment section:

    By December of 2017, some 4.4 million Ukrainians fled to Russia and 600.000 applied for Russian citizenship. … Zelensky is between two fires. On the one hand, he is facing an impoverished population, while on the other hand, he is also facing the neo-Nazis, supported by oligarchs. Neither side can back down. This means we have a perfect catalyst for mass social unrest, leading to the break up of the country into three parts, as predicted by analysts during the past few years, and something that will most probably happen.

    Still worshiping Chalupa and her zionist connections?

    Alperovitch’s relationship with Andrea Chalupa’s efforts and Ukrainian intelligence groups is where things really heat up.

When you look at Dimitri Alperovitch’s twitter relationships, you have to ask why the CEO of a \$150 million company like Crowdstrike follows Ukrainian InformNapalm and its hackers individually. There is a mutual relationship. … The hackers are funded and directed by or through the same OUNb [Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists] channels that Alperovitch is working for and with to promote the story of Russian hacking.

    When you look at the image for the hacking group in the Euromaidan press article, one of the hackers identifies themselves as one of Dimitri Yarosh’s Pravy Sektor members by the Pravy Sektor sweatshirt they have on. Noted above, Pravy Sektor admitted to killing the people at the Maidan protest…

    Ukraine has been primed for being stripped of its land and timbre — IMF (and Bloomberg) want land reform in Ukraine:

    Ukraine is back to Jewish tax collectors:

    Jewish historian Max Dimont:

    [Christian feudal life was like] a vast prison. … The restrictions placed on the feudal serfs, as the peasants were called, pursued them from “womb to tomb.”

    None of these restrictions applied to the Jews. They were free to come and go, marry and divorce, sell and buy as they pleased….

    Tax collection:

    Jews in Poland were formally protected and served as tax-collectors, bankers, and administrators of the money mints, breweries and salt mines. (In later centuries Jews eventually owned many of such important industries). …

    Along with Jewish leases on tax collecting, inns, dairies, flour mills, tolls, and other essentials of commerce, “the Jews inherited from the landed gentry some of the rights over the serfs. The lessees endeavored to extract as much revenue as possible from the nobleman’s estates, and to do that it was necessary to exploit the peasantry.”

    “Jews,” writes Witold Rymankowki, “in contrast to the millions of [Polish] serfs and the impoverished townspeople who were oppressed by the nobility, constituted a privileged group which … effectively represented the only class in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to concentrate finance and liquid assets in its hands.”

    An old Latin proverb proclaimed that the Polish Commonwealth was “heaven for the nobles, purgatory for the townsfolk, hell for the peasants, and paradise for the Jews.”

    “The Council of Four Lands,” says David Biale, “which was the supracommunal governing body of the Polish Jews, maintained a virtual ‘Jewish lobby’ at the Polish parliament. In the eyes of enemies of the Jews, the power of this lobby was such that, according to a statement from 1669, ‘in practice Jews do not let any law materialize which is unfavorable to them.’”

    Jews prospered so well that, when the Polish and Lithuanian nobility merged forces in the mid-sixteenth century, Jews followed up with their “services.” With Polish expansion into the Ukrainian frontiers, Jews leased land there too from the aristocracy, and dictated over the population of serf-slaves.

    Wealthy Jews established themselves securely throughout the Polish economy and farmed out work and management opportunities to relatives and co-religionists. “During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries,” says Salo Baron, “domestic commerce (in Poland and Lithuania) as well as export (timber, grain, furs) and import (cloth, wine, luxuries) were for the most part in Jewish hands.” In fact, Heinrich Graetz states that “circumstances were such at the time that the Jews of Poland could form a state within a state.”

    Before the Holocaust, Jews were the largest minority in Poland. In Poland’s major cities, Jews and Poles spoke each other’s languages and interacted in markets and on the streets. Even the market towns, or shtetls, that have come to represent the lives of Jews in Eastern Europe were, to some extent, mixed communities. That did not mean that antisemitism did not impact the lives of Polish Jews, but Jews were part of Poland, and Polish culture was, in part, Jewish.

    The debate over Holocaust restitution in Poland has surfaced in election debates ahead of EU vote and the parliamentary elections later this year. A 2018 law signed by US President Donald Trump, designed to encourage the restoration of Jewish property stolen during the Holocaust, has drawn criticism from Poland’s right-wing government, which insists the matter is closed.

    The US Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today (JUST) Act — known as the 447 law — requires the US State Department to report to Congress on the progress of countries including Poland on the restitution of Jewish assets seized during World War II and its aftermath.

    Nationalist groups have also opposed the law, arguing that paying compensation would ruin Poland’s economy

    The “most moral victims”‘ need to be reminded again and again about the Bolshevik Revolution and the mass slaughter of Russians on the orders of Jewish Bolsheviks.

    The extermination of Russian nobility (including the tsar’s family) and of the professional class was the foremost important task for the Jewish Russophobes who also organized a system of concentration camps (Soviet GULAG) where Russians were dying by hundreds of thousands. The tragedy of GULAG was real. Its history is not some profitable holobiz profiteering schema that demands the prohibition of any investigation of holobiz claims by any honest historian under the danger of losing a job, physical assault from Jewish thugs, and imprisonment.

    There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. … In the Soviet institutions, the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combatting Counter-Revolution [the Cheka, the brutal secret police] has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses.

    David R. Francis, United States ambassador in Russia, warned in a January 1918 dispatch to Washington: “The Bolshevik leaders here, most of whom are Jews and 90 percent of whom are returned exiles, care little for Russia or any other country but are internationalists and they are trying to start a worldwide social revolution.”

    “The Bolshevik Revolution,” declared a leading American Jewish community paper in 1920, “was largely the product of Jewish thinking, Jewish discontent, Jewish effort to reconstruct.”

    No wonder that the only comprehensive documentary of the history of Jews in Russia is banned by all publishing houses in the US/UK.

    The same visceral hatred of Russia permeates the infamous Magnitsky Act concocted by zionists such as the US senator Cardin and the M16-connected Browder, a fraudster suspected of ordering witnesses’ murder in Russia.

    Similar to the documentary “Two Hundred Years Together,” the documentary about Browder’s exploits in Russia has been banned. The Jewish mega-scoundrels, specifically the Mega Group, protect each other:

    Ghislaine Maxwell was more than the alleged protector and procurer of young girls for Jeffrey Epstein as well as his girlfriend based upon allegations. … she is the daughter of Robert Maxwell… Interestingly, Maxwell’s protege was also William Browder.

    Pronounce Khalupa

    Chalupa means peasant house.
    Peasant built a House for himself on acquired land.
    The house was built with with home made mud bricks reinforced with straws.
    Roof was made with several layers of cane, usually at least foot thick.
    When children got married married they did built additions to this house.
    So eventually these types of houses become long houses.
    They are very rear houses now, but still can be found in central Europe.

    — Syria is another case study:

    …there’s the nagging issue that simply won’t go away: the American drive to “secure the oil” (Trump) and “protect” Syrian oilfields (the Pentagon), for all practical purposes from Syria. …

    All across the Global South, especially among countries in the Non-Aligned Movement, this is being interpreted, stripped to the bone, for what it is: the United States government illegally taking possession of natural resources of a third country via a military occupation.

    And the Pentagon is warning that anyone attempting to contest it will be shot on sight. It remains to be seen whether the US Deep State would be willing to engage in a hot war with Russia over a few Syrian oilfields.

    Under international law, the whole “securing the oil” scam is a euphemism for pillaging, pure and simple. Every single takfiri or jihadi outfit operating across the “Greater Middle East” will converge, perversely, to the same conclusion: US “efforts” across the lands of Islam are all about the oil.

    The mega-traitors to America among Ukrainian diaspora (they are no better than zionists with whom the Ukrainian subversives have forged close collaboration):

    “Colonel Vindman may have violated the federal leaking statute 18 USC 798 when he leaked the president’s classified call to several other operatives.” …

    Alexander Vindman’s ties to Ukraine should have made him disclose a few large conflicts of interest before being assigned in the capacity he has.
    Vindman had business interests in Ukraine which would suffer if the relationship between both countries was jeopardized.
    Was it Vindman’s American patriotism or Diaspora nationalism that led him to share the Oval Office transcript with Ukraine’s president?

    Anton Gerashchenko, Ukraine’s Deputy Interior Minister threatened president-elect Donald Trump that he would put him [Trump] on his Myrotvorets “Peacemaker” site as a target. … As the in-house expert, Vindman would have known this and yet he still conducted himself in the service of Ukraine. In Vindman’s world view it must be acceptable behavior for a foreign government official to threaten his own country’s Commander-in-Chief.

    Dems are in cahoots with the mad Banderites — the Chalupa sisters:

    The history and involvement of Alexandra and Andrea Chalupa in both the 2014 Ukraine coup and the election hacking, as well as Russian interference stories, is well known. These two Ukrainian Diaspora sisters are the originators of the impeachment movement of Donald Trump which started just after he declared victory in 2016.

    The Arlington memorial services can make pronouncements of whatever they want but the Ukrainian diaspora has its own ‘convictions:’

    Can Waffen SS officers and mass murderers like Stepan Bandera be Catholic patron saints in cities like New York, Philadelphia, Stamford CT, or Boston in the year 2015?

    — Yes, they can:

    “On October 16, 2011, members of the 54th branch of CYM “Khersones” in Stamford, CT attended a mass and requiem service in honor of the great Ukrainian hero and freedom fighter, Stepan Bandera. It was the first time since its’ inception that the branches’ members took part in an organized activity together with the greater Ukrainian community of Stamford.

    The SUM members and the faithful present that day enjoyed a beautiful and emotional homily about the life and achievements of Stepan Bandera delivered by Reverend Bohdan Danylo, Rector of St. Basil’s Seminary in Stamford. He instructed the children on how they can model their own lives on Bandera’s by following his example of self-sacrifice and unwavering dedication to his country.

    Take note that none of the main 52 Jewish organizations in the US have ever objected to the open glorification of the Nazi collaborators, the Banderites. The zionists and Banderites unite in their visceral hatred towards Russia — and their disloyalty to the US.

    Examples of Banderites’ glorious achievements:

    The massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia (Volyn tragedy), was a genocide carried out in Nazi German-occupied Poland by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (the UPA) with the active and frequent support of the local Ukrainian population against the Polish minority in the area of Volhynia, Eastern Galicia, parts of Polesia and Lublin region, beginning in 1943 and lasting up to 1945. … Most of the victims were women and children. UPA’s methods were particularly brutal, with many of the victims being tortured and mutilated, and resulted in 40,000–60,000 Polish deaths in Volhynia and 30,000–40,000 in Eastern Galicia, with the other regions for the total about 100,000.

    The killings were directly linked with the policies of the Bandera faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B) and its military arm, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army

    Banderites and Jews:

    UPA attacks on Jews continued at such a ferocious level that Jews actually sought the protection of the Germans. “The Banderite bands and the local nationalists raided every night, decimating the Jews,” a survivor testified in 1948. “Jews sheltered in the camps where Germans were stationed, fearing an attack by Banderites. Some German soldiers were brought to protect the camps and thereby also the Jews.”

    Not a peep from the Kagans clan, the ADL, and such but only expression of their brotherly love for Chalupa sisters and Vindman brothers.

    Israel’s relentless quest to dominate Wikipedia is not a new story and is hardly a secret. … Israeli “groups seeking to gain the upper hand in the online debate have launched a course in ‘Zionist editing’ for Wikipedia, the online reference site.” You can watch the rabid right wing Israeli politician Naftali Bennet commenting on a Wikipedia editing workshop that teaches Jews and others how to edit Wikipedia pages to favour the Israeli position.

    and this:

    it was a sweet irony to see an Israeli Prime Minister officially traveling to the Nazi-occupied Ukraine to commemorate the massacre of Jews at Babii Iar greeted by the very same slogan which the Jews murdered at Babii Iar heard from their Banderite executioners while they were being shot.

    Mr. Vindman, a Jewish-Ukrainian product of Brighton Beach and loyal follower of his Russophobic parents, has been fighting against democracy in the US and for Banderites’ rule in Ukraine:

    The Cold War mindset that liberals have embraced threatens not just their own political fortunes but also global peace. … The dangers extend beyond Ukraine’s borders. The day after the House impeachment vote, Russia warned that there is not enough time left to renegotiate the New START Treaty before it expires in 2021. The treaty’s demise would leave the world’s top two nuclear powers “free to expand their arsenals without limits” on “the most powerful weapons both sides can launch.” … the Kremlin hopes to renew or revise the accord, but “the US administration is silent about it.” The Russians’ impression is that the Trump White House “is organically against any restrictions being imposed on the United States.”

    The Jews have found the safe haven in the US yet that was not enough for them.

    Another article documenting the brotherly-sisterly love among Banderites and ziocons:

    Judicial Watch announced the analysis of Obama-era White House visitor logs that detail meetings of controversial CIA employee Eric Ciaramella, who had been assigned to the White House. …

    … Alexandra Chalupa, a contractor hired by the DNC during the 2016 election who coordinated with Ukrainians to investigate President Trump and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, visited the White House 27 times. …

    The White House visitor logs revealed the following individuals met with Eric Ciaramella while he was detailed to the Obama White House:

    Gina Lentine: Now a senior program officer at Freedom House, she was formerly the Eurasia program coordinator at Soros funded Open Society Foundations. She visited on March 16, 2016.

    Rachel Goldbrenner: Now an NYU law professor, she was at that time an advisor to then-Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power. She visited on both January 15, 2016 and August 8, 2016.

    Orly Keiner: A foreign affairs officer at the State Department who is a Russia specialist. She is also the wife of State Department Legal Advisor James P. Bair. She visited on both March 4, 2016 and June 20, 2015.

    Nazar Kholodnitzky: The lead anti-corruption prosecutor in Ukraine. He visited on January 19, 2016. …

    Michael Kimmage: Professor of History at Catholic University of America, at the time was with the State Department’s policy planning staff where specialized in Russia and Ukraine issues. … He visited on October 26, 2015.

    James Melville: Then-recently confirmed as Obama’s Ambassador to Estonia, visited on September 9, 2015.
    On June 29, 2018, Foreign Policy reported that Melville resigned in protest of Trump.

    Victoria Nuland: who at the time was assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs met with Ciaramella on June 17, 2016.

    And, unsurprisingly:

    The Hill reported that in April 2016, during the U.S. presidential race, the U.S. Embassy under Obama in Kiev, “took the rare step of trying to press the Ukrainian government to back off its investigation of both the U.S. aid and (AntAC).”

    There are some parallels between the Ukrainian events since at least 2014 wtih US “Democratic” influence, activities, methods and the methods, persons etc. appearing in the current upheaval in the US.

    It would be interesting to examine how Ukraine was taken over (supposedly with US involvement), by what methods a dedicated minority succeeded in ruling over the majority (often forced to shout “Slava Ukraini!” and forced to denounce “Moskals” by mobs just like obedient whites are taking the knee in the West before the BLM mob), what organizations have been set up for this purpose, how they took control of the narrative.

    It is very similar to how the Democratic Party and the organizations related to them operate in the USA, see for example how the attempt to “reform” the US police and law enforcement, the attempt to disband some police departments is similar to how from 2014 Ukraine has practically replaced the entire police force. They virtually dissolved (wherever they could) the entire (and essentially all Russian-speaking) staff, at least the old organizational units, and replaced them with minority Ukrainian-speakers wherever they were able to. They tried to switch over to a US-patterned organizational structure, adapting, among other things, the ridiculously short training time, recruitment (essentially criminal history is not an obstacle if you are loyal to the regime i.e. speak Ukrainian) under the supervision of US advisors.

    Compare how the Democrats/Left are using the same methods at home that they have developed and tried out in Ukraine (and before that in the color revolutions and the Arab Spring). How they direct the current street protests/riots and the political power-grabbing process.

    In the US at the moment they are already beyond initiating street movements questioning the current socio-cultural order. At present, as it seems, the “reform” and later replacement of law enforcement is one of the main priorities.

    If they follow the Ukrainian scenario, one of the next steps would be the attempt to replace the military, then to totally change over of the education system. What this practically meant in Ukraine was that Russian-speaking, Russian-affiliated people, who were a significant part of society, were removed from leadership positions (in education, culture, science, public sector) and replaced by loyal Ukrainian nationalists. How this is going to be done in the US is a very interesting question and obviously it will have terrible effects on the whole society and economy if it is actually going to be done.

    If they continue to implement the scenario they have implemented in Ukraine, they will try to isolate entire territories, in this case states, which are stubbornly resistant to the new social order and culture.

    Essentially, even if a part of the next steps of the Ukrainian scenario are implemented or attempted, civil war could break out. That is why the Democrats (and their circles, and the organizations and individuals who influence them) may attempt to take control of the army even in the near future.

    Taking over the military could be a very risky thing, as the officer corps is mostly white (if they wanted to replace the non-Hispanic white officers, it would lead to a huge geopolitical vacuum, to put it mildly, as there would be a lack of thousands of trained personnel). The enlisted, however, are mostly Hispanic, African American, Arab/Muslim, and foreigners seeking citizenship. This results in a significantly higher proportion of militarily trained Hispanics and blacks compared to the entire population than of non-Hispanic whites. At the same time, the National Guard are mostly non-Hispanic whites. This is an explosive situation because the National Guard is present in every state, and the civilian population can access weapons ridiculously easily and quickly (heavy weapons, on the other hand, are under the control of non-Hispanic white officers. This caused an enormous problem in Ukraine, when they fired unreliable pro-Russian military officers (and technically trained personnel) and staff, they tried to recruit loyal personnel in weeks. That led to the incorporation of militias of soccer hooligans, neo-nazis and foreigners in the military, effectively in the armed forces, and these units bore the brunt of the fighting in Donetsk/Luhansk.
