* WELCOME TO NULANDISTAN: A MULTIMEDIA LOOK AT WHAT THE US AND EU HAVE UNLEASHED ON UKRAINE
By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Global Research
The Yatsenyuk regime’s anti-terrorism operations in the southern and eastern oblasts (regions) of Ukraine are really a use of martial force against Ukrainian civilians opposed to the coup-installed regime in Kiev. Predominately peaceful Ukrainian citizens opposing the coup leaders and not “armed separatists” have been the main target of the regime’s militias.
The discourse about “pro-Russian” separatists is a misleading attempt to hide the real nature of the protests against the regime, which is opposition to a coup. The main issue is one of anti-coup protesters versus a junta and not separatists and federalists versus Kiev. To refer to the junta in Kiev as the government of Ukraine is to reject or ignore its illegality.
Welcome to Ukraine Nulandistan
Wherever the US government says it is promoting democracy and freedom, as US Assistant-Secretary of State Victoria Nuland professes about Ukraine, there has been destruction, impoverishment, sectarianism, fighting, and death. Welcome to post-coup Ukraine or Nulandistan. It follows the precedents and traditions of destabilization and violence honoured by US officials like Senator John McCain in the Syrian Arab Republic (McCainistan) and by Hillary Clinton in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya (Clintonistan).
Arseniy Petrovych Yatsenyuk, who has illegally taken the post of Ukrainian prime minister with the support of the US and European Union, was never favoured by many of the authentic protesters in Euro-Maidan or even the grassroots members of his allies. When, without any election or public discussion, he was arbitrarily given the office of prime minister, many in the Euro-Maidan protest movement booed him and some even cried “bullet to his head.” His party boss, the infamously corrupt Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko, was booed too after she arrived. In reality, Yatsenyuk and the other Ukrainian politicians identifying themselves with Euro-Maidan, like the ultra-nationalist Svoboda’s Oleh Tyahnybok, appropriated the hopes and dreams of the Ukrainians that were protesting against not only the Ukrainian government of Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych, but the entire corrupt Ukrainian political establishment. Hiding behind the protesters, Yatsenyuk and Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna Party used the militias of their ultra-nationalist political allies to launch a violent coup in Kiev.
There is no functioning democracy in Ukraine and, with the full support of the European Union and the US government, free speech inside Ukraine is under attack by the new regime and its thugs. Yatsenyuk’s coup-installed regime has cracked down on media freedoms, sent the Ukrainian military and security forces to attack anti-coup protesters under the pretext of NATO-backed anti-terrorism operations, and started purges and witch hunts all over Ukraine. This started with the head of the National Television Company of Ukraine, Aleksandr Panteleymonov, being threatened and beaten into resigning by Svoboda deputies Igor Miroshnynchenko and Andrey Ilyenko. […]
Post-Coup Ukraine: US, EU Supported Violence, Media Clampdown
The office of the acting CEO of the National Television Company of Ukraine, Aleksandr Panteleymonov, was stormed by people who claimed to be members of the freedom of speech and information committee. Among them were Ukrainian Svoboda MP Igor Miroshnynchenko and party ideologist Andrey Ilyenko. What began as a loud conversation quickly turned into a fight.
The Ukrainian politicians used violence and threats to force the head of the Ukrainian National TV Channel into resigning and handing over power to them.
The same violent tactics have also been used to force Ukrainian MPs, mayors and civil servants to resign or hand over power across Ukraine.
Welcome to Nulandistan: Svoboda Thugs Silence MP Petro Symonenko inside Ukraine’s Parliament
Welcome to Nulandistan. Democracy flew out the door of Kiev in February 2014. Any semblances of a functioning democracy are disappearing day by day.
Brute force is being used against civilian protesters opposing the unelected Yatsenyuk regime that is backed by the US and the EU. Yatsenyuk’s coup-installed regime has cracked down on media freedoms, sent the Ukrainian military to attack anti-coup protesters under the pretext of NATO-backed anti-terrorism operations, and started purges and witch hunts all over Ukraine.
The regime’s officials have begun to glory Hitler’s invasion of Ukraine and Eastern Europe too.
Inside the Verkhova Rada or Ukrainian Parliament any deputies who dare speak against the regime and its policies are silences and beaten up. This is the US-supported freedom of speech that has been brought to Ukraine, Nuland-style. In this video MP Petro Symonenko is pushed and prevented from speaking just for daring to condemn the use of the Ukrainian military against civilian protesters by Yatsenyuk’s regime. Before being silenced, Symonenko made the key point of noting how the ultra-nationalists were serving foreign interests and not the national interests of Ukraine.
A atmosphere of intimidation and bullying is the new order of the day in Nulandistan and politicians opposing the regime are regularly threatened and beaten, some to the point of near death.
Now Entering Nulandistan: US-Supported EuroMaidan “Democrat” Calls for Genocide
The Ukrainian businessman Gennady Balashov is seen here telling supporters of coup-installed regime of Arseniy Yatsenyuk that the protesters in the eastern and southern parts of Ukraine must all be killed on March 10, 2014.
Balashov calls for the blockage of natural gas from Russia to the the countries of the European Union and for deliberate attempts of provocation against the Russian Federation.
Balashov discourages dialogue and directly calls for bloodshed. He calls for ethnic cleansing, more properly termed as genocide, in places like Crimea, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk. Anyone that opposes the coup-installed regime in Kiev he says must be murdered. He mentions that this includes murdering anyone that wears the orange and black St.George’s Ribbon, which is a ribbon that is displayed to commemorator the end of the Second World War and the defeat of Nazi Germany. The St. George’s Ribbon has now become a distinguishing mark of the anti-coup protesters in Ukraine, because to them the US-supported February 2014 coup represents the reemergence of the threat of fascism.
Balashov states: “We must block the pipeline. We must not allow natural gas trade. Only this can stop the invaders. We must block the pipeline and let them send Alpha to shoot everyone there.
These people are on the foreign territory. Crimea, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk are the Ukrainian cities. If they wear the St.George ribbon, if they tear down our flag, we must shoot them in the head because they are enemy. We should not talk to them or educate them…”

* BLACKWATER MERCENARIES DIRECT KIEV REGIME CRACKDOWN IN UKRAINE
By Alex Lantier, Axis of Logic
Hundreds of US mercenaries are directing the repression of pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine by the fascist forces of the NATO puppet regime in Kiev, according to German media reports.
They are employed by the firm previously known as Blackwater, a massive private military contracting firm founded by former US Navy SEAL Erik Prince. The firm was renamed Xe in 2009 and then Academi in 2011, trying to evade the infamy attached to its original name due to its massacres of civilians in US-occupied Iraq.
They are now coordinating the attacks by the fascist Right Sector militia, the Kiev regime’s National Guard, and groups of football hooligans that have led to hundreds of casualties across east Ukraine. […]
* BLOODBATH IN ODESSA GUIDED BY INTERIM RULERS OF UKRAINE
The Atlanticist media stubbornly presents the crimes committed in Odessa on May 2 as the result of an accidental blaze, while the photos and video footage available leave no doubt that the victims were tortured and murdered before being burned. We bring you first-hand information on how the operation was organized and executed under the direct and personal authority of coup-appointed acting President Alexander Turchinov and Ukrainian-Israeli oligarch Ihor Kolomoiskiy.
The information provided below was obtained from an insider in one of Ukraine’s law-enforcement agencies, who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. It is clear that there are people even within the interim administration in Kiev who are against what happened in Odessa on May 2 and throughout the whole country .
After the loss of Crimea and the popular uprising in Mariupol, Odessa is now Ukraine’s only gateway to the sea, thus making it the most important city in the country after Kiev.
Ten days before the tragedy a secret meeting was held in Kiev, chaired by the incumbent president Olexander Turchinov, to prepare a special operation in Odessa. Present were minister of internal affairs Arsen Avakov, the head of the Ukrainian Security Service Valentin Nalivaychenko, and the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Andriy Parubiy. Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoiskiy, the Kiev-appointed head of regional administration of the Dnepropetrovsk region, was consulted in regard to the operation.
During that meeting Arsen Avakov reportedly came up with the idea of using football hooligans, known as “ultras,” in the operation. Ever since his time as the head of the Kharkov regional administration he has worked closely with the fan leaders, whom he continued to sponsor even from his new home in Italy .
Kolomoisky temporarily delivered his private “Dnieper-1” Battalion under the command of law-enforcement officials in Odessa and also authorized a cash payment of $5,000 for “each pro-Russian separatist” killed during the special operation.
A couple of days before the operation in Odessa Andriy Parubiy brought dozens of bullet-proof vests to local ultra-nationalists . This video shows an episode of handing the vests to the local Maidan activists in Odessa. Take note of the person who receives the load. He is Mykola Volkov, a local hard-core criminal who would be repeatedly screened during the assault on Trade Unionist House gun-shooting at the people  and reporting about the “incident” by phone to an official in Kiev .
“Fanaticism is to superstition what delirium is to fever, and what rage is to anger. The man visited by ecstasies and visions, who takes dreams for realities is an enthusiast; the man who supports his madness with murder is a fanatic”
Voltaire (1694-1778) […]
Independent report on massacre in Odessa (House of Trade Unions)
Independent report on massacre and fire in Odessa (May 2, 2014). Ultras and “Right Sector” thugs attack the House of Trade Unions and burn people alive with Molotov cocktails. Neonazi militants work jointly with local police. 116 peaceful supporters of federalization fell victim to mass murder. Ukrainian authorities and deputies of neonazi “Svoboda” party in Parliament wish the victims “to burn in hell”.

* EARTH: 248 ARMED CONFLICTS AFTER WW2; US STARTED 201 (81%), KILLING 30 MILLION SO FAR. ARRESTS ARE WHEN NOW?
Source: Washington’s Blog and David Swanson
People around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country. The data confirm this conclusion:
- Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them.
- These US-started armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men.
- The US has war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.
- US official reports now confirm all “reasons” the US told for current armed attacks were known to be false as they were told.
- These lie-started US wars are not even close to lawful (here and here recently).
- US wars and rhetoric for more wars continue a long history of lie-began US Wars of Aggression. The most decorated US Marine general in his day warned all Americans of this fact of lie-started wars for 1% plunder.
The categories of crime for armed attacks outside US treaty limits of law are:
- Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit),
- likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
* KING SOLOMON’S WISDOM ON FOREIGN AID
By Rudy U Martinka, rudymartinka.com
That night after dinner, we went again to the main campfire to watch the dancing, and listened to the same old man tell another story. When he ended his story, his audience responded with reserved sounds of approval instead of laughing.
“Bilqis, what was his story about tonight?” I asked curiously.
“It was the same story about the wise old man and the robber except it had a different ending. Instead of the old man killing the robber, the robber thanked him for feeding him and stated he would never rob a man who fed him. It is another interpretation of the saying ‘that a snake when feeding has no venom.’ The point of the story is when you feed your enemies; they will be less likely to want to harm the hand that feeds them.”
“Bilqis, it seems we have another similar belief.” I replied.
“Tell me your similar belief.” Bilqis replied.
“We Israelites also believe that sometimes when kindness is shown to an enemy, because it is undeserved, may awaken feelings of remorse. Bread and water have accomplished more power than the bitterest invective. His pain will be to experience your magnanimity and generous forgiveness and at the same time restore him as your brother.” If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. (Proverb 26:21)
“Perhaps your Goddess of Wisdom shines her light in more places than Israel.” Bilqis replied. […]
