EIR LEAD EDITORIAL FOR FRIDAY AUGUST 26, 2022
The Fascist Nature of the Ukrainian Regime Can No Longer Be Denied
Aug. 25, 2022 (EIRNS)—EIR published extensive documentation before and after the February 2014 “Maidan” coup proving that the driving forces behind that “color revolution,” openly sponsored and orchestrated by the Obama Administration’s Victoria Nuland and Vice President Joe Biden, were the proud followers of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi colleague in Ukraine, Stepan Bandera, and the various offshoots of the British-spawned Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). (See EIR, May 16, 2014 “British Imperial Project in Ukraine: Violent Coup, Fascist Axioms, Neo-Nazis.”) That regime, placed in power by Nuland and her cohorts at the U.S. State Department, proceeded to outlaw the Russian language and to launch air raids and artillery barrages against the Russian-speaking citizens in the eastern Donbass region of Ukraine, who had refused to accept the fascist coup d’état against their elected government. The American and British establishment heaped praise on the great “democracy” in Ukraine, even as all opposition political parties were outlawed and statues of Stepan Bandera were constructed across the country, to replace status of those who liberated the country from the Nazi horror.
Now they have gone too far. The overt terrorist assassination in Moscow of the Russian journalist Darya Dugina rips the flimsy mask off the fascist regime. Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia held up a photo from the Ukrainian Myrotvorets website, which has named thousands of Russian and Ukrainian “enemies of the state” since 2014 as a target list for assassinations, showing Dugina’s picture as one of their targets, but now with “liquidated” written across her photo. It has recently been determined that Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche and LaRouche Organization spokesman Harley Schlanger are also on the Myrotvorets hit list, as are former CIA official Ray McGovern and former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. All four are also among the 71 people on the more recent Ukrainian hit list published on July 14 this year by the government’s Center for Countering Disinformation.
Nebenzia addressed the assassination of Dugina: “In order to assess the degree of that deepest Russophobic decline, I would like to once again quote the words said the other day by Ukraine’s Ambassador to Kazakhstan Pavel Vrublevsky. After the murder of Darya Dugina he openly declared: ‘We are trying to kill as many of them as possible. The more Russians we kill now, the less our children will have to kill. That’s all.’ And these are the words of the ambassador of the country where these very ‘Russians’ not only live, but also make up a very significant part of the population. Does such a country, such an inhumane regime, have a future? Our Western colleagues can prolong its agony but cannot prevent its demise.”
Sergey Glazyev, a former leading advisor to President Vladimir Putin who is now leads Minister in Charge of Integration and Macroeconomics, Eurasian Economic Commission (and for decades has been a close friend of the Schiller Institute), quoted Andriy Yermak, the head of Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s presidential office in Kiev: “Our task is to make sure that not only the current generation of Russians, but also their children and grandchildren will pay.” Glazyev continued: “Eight hours later, Alexander Dugin’s daughter Darya was killed.... Considering that the SBU [Ukraine’s Security Service] and the Zelenskyy administration are, in fact, sub-branches of the CIA and MI6, this heinous assassination by their agents has the obvious aim of raising [the scale of] the war.... This assassination made impossible the negotiations that [Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan is seeking and the Israeli prime minister is proposing. With their provocative crimes against humanity and the Russian world, the American and British intelligence agencies are exacerbating, expanding, and deepening the conflict with the help of the SBU in order to escalate hostilities, with numerous victims. The answer to these crimes can only be a quick and decisive mobilization of all the forces of the Russian world for the speedy victory in Ukraine and in the world hybrid war unleashed against us by Washington and its satellites.”
The world is careening toward thermonuclear war, while the hyperinflationary collapse of the Western financial system escalates daily. The Dutch spot market for gas, which sets the price for all other European gas sales, has increased by 600% over the past year. Pensioners in the U.K. and other parts of Europe are destitute—for no reason other than the fact that the banking cartels running the Western economy are Malthusian, Green fanatics, unwilling to drop neither their fake science about carbon, nor their war-mongering against Russia and China, which is leading the world into a new dark age.
There is no local solution to this existential crisis of humanity. Register for the Schiller Institute Conference on September 10-11, “Inspiring Humanity To Survive the Greatest Crisis in World History.”
