NATO-Russia tug-of-war in Ukraine. The troubles in Ukraine discussed. Is Ukraine one country? The history of Ukraine -- maybe similar to Yugoslavia; far right elements of 'protesters'; economic collapse; NATO; identical leaflets in Egypt and Ukraine; CANVAS. During Operation Barbarossa, the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union (USSR), and the subsequent German--Soviet War, millions of Red Army prisoners of war were taken. Some of them were arbitrarily executed in the field by the German forces, died under inhuman conditions in German prisoner of war camps and during ruthless death marches from the front lines, or were shipped to Nazi concentration camps for extermination. Some 3.3 million Soviet POWs died in Nazi custody, out of 5.7 million. This figure represents a total of 57% of all Soviet POWs and may be contrasted with only 8,300 out of 231,000 British and US prisoners, or 3.6%. Some estimates range as high as 5 million dead, including those killed immediately after surrendering. Ireland peace deal and the letters of immunity from prosecution: John Downey case -- coincidence with events related to murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby. He was arrested, despite the peace agreement on the day of the Rigby murder. IRA weapons hand over; false flag attacks, was the Woolwich murder orchestrated by MI5 controlling the two African Muslim converts? British army's Brigadier Gordon Kerr was carrying out these kinds of false flag attacks in Northern Ireland.

The Road to Moscow Goes Through Kiev: A Coup d'Etat That Threatens Russia
By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya - Global Research, February 25, 2014
Euromaidan Riots
The takeover of power in Kiev by the mainstream opposition is a coup that has been executed by force, which overlooks the opinions of at least half of the Ukrainian population. Yet, you would not know this from listening to such media outlets and networks as CNN or Fox News or reading the headlines being produced by Reuters and the state-owned British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The events in Kiev are misleadingly being billed and framed by these media sources and the so-called "Western" governments they support, either directly or indirectly, as the triumph of people power and democracy in Ukraine.
Utter hypocrisy is at work. When similar protests and riots broke out in Britain and France, the positions taken and the tones used by the above actors was very different. These actors framed the protests and riots in Britain and France as issues of law and order, using language very favourable to the British and French governments. Where were the statements of concern about the rights and safety of protesters from the US government and the European Commission when force was used by the British and French governments or when protesters died?

The U.S. has Installed a Neo-Nazi Government in Ukraine
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky - Global Research, March 02, 2014
Ukraine extreme-droite
According to the New York Times, "The United States and the European Union have embraced the revolution here as another flowering of democracy, a blow to authoritarianism and kleptocracy in the former Soviet space." ( After Initial Triumph, Ukraine's Leaders Face Battle for Credibility, NYTimes.com, March 1, 2014, emphasis added)
"Flowering Democracy, Revolution"? The grim realities are otherwise. What is a stake is a US-EU-NATO sponsored coup d'Etat in blatant violation of international law.
The forbidden truth is that the West has engineered --through a carefully staged covert operation-- the formation of a proxy regime integrated by Neo-Nazis.
Composition of the Coalition Government
We are not dealing with a transitional government in which Neo-Nazi elements integrate the fringe of the coalition, formally led by the Fatherland party.
The Cabinet is not only integrated by the Svoboda and Right Sector (not to mention former members of defunct fascist UNA-UNSO), the two main Neo-Nazi entities have been entrusted with key positions which grant them de facto control over the Armed Forces, Police and National Security.
While Yatsenuyk's Fatherland Party controls the majority of portfolios and Svoboda Neo-Nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok was not granted a major cabinet post (apparently at the request of assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland), members of Svoboda and the Right Sector occupy key positions in the areas of Defense, Law Enforcement, Education, Justice and Economic Affairs.
