VIOLENCE AND REGIME CHANGE IN UKRAINE
this country (Sweden) now condemn all politicians, rightly , the political violence . But
political violence on the Maidan in Kiev, which led to the democratically
elected president was overthrown they criticize not, even backing up because it
fits what is ideologically and politically correct in Sweden and Western States.
hypocrisy of those good Democrats!
In Ukraine, it
may look like a battle mainly between East and West and a revival of the Cold War.
is an important aspect of the conflict, but not the whole story. Western
powers and their spearhead NATO are constantly trying to nibble into Russia's
old areas of interest, not without success in Eastern Europe. Therefore,
they have with different ways of agents , money and politicians intrigued
against Yanukovych regime. U.S.
Sen. John McCain had a meeting with Svoboda fascist leader Oleh Tyahnybok .
Ukraine is a deeply
divided country. In
the western part throws Liberals yearning glances
at the EU and believe that membership would give a real boost for the country,
while the ultra- nationalists have a strong nationalist agenda. They are not interested in the EU. Eastern
Ukraine on the other hand has a Russian culture and strong economic cooperation
with Russia. There,
one realizes that the agreement with the EU, would mean great harm to its
protests on the Maidan was taken over by ultra- nationalists from Svoboda and
Pravy Sector, far right, who in February armed themselves and began firing live
ammunition at police. This
led to the armed conflict in which 20 policemen and 70 activists were killed. Contrary
to the angled image, usually presented in the Western media, is it the ultra-
nationalists and fascists that caused the catastrophic escalation of the
Ukraine has a frightening history when the German Nazis occupied the country
and local fascists helped the Nazis to do away with the Jews. Svoboda,
who initially called themselves The National Socialist Party of Ukraine , with
Hitler salutes and Waffen SS 's symbol Wolf Trap (or wolf hook ) carries on
these traditions and opinions and has made hateful statements about Jews. Their
leader Olek Tyahnybok has called for struggle against the " Moscow -
Jewish mafia " and "other scum who want to take over Ukraine."
Svoboda got 58 percent in recent elections in the Ivano -Frankivsk Oblast. Now
Svoboda has four representatives in government even as Deputy Prime Minister.
Yanukovych and his regime was corrupt (which seems to be much of Ukraine). He
had certainly lost the election next year, but the hooligans at Maidan could
not wait for a democratic process to dismiss him. Was this worth 100 human lives? This
I want to ask the Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt who frantically supported the mob
rule and Svoboda ministers, who also are his friends.
The conflict in Ukraine reflects a battle between two empires, who want to
defend and expand their spheres of influence. When the Soviet Union collapsed they also lost the fight for influence in Africa and
Asia. Later, it has gone the same way in Eastern Europe. In the corresponding
extent, the U.S. and the EU have been able to expand their areas of
interest and penetrate deeper into the Soviet Union near areas of interest, now
guarded by Russia, the Soviet heir . Ukraine has for centuries been very
important for Russia and the U.S. / EU have apparently misread Russia's
willingness, by all means, keep Ukraine within its sphere .
Today imperialism is not primarily to retain areas of land,
but on movements and financial flows : capital, services , culture, information
, resources and manpower. Neoliberal globalization is the driving force of
modern empire building, backed and supported by strong economic interests . The
empires seeks to open and establish new markets for the
products and other products while ensuring the availability of raw materials
(called geoimperialism ) .
The empire would then exploit countries consumption ability and natural
resources. It is more about economic exchanges than on political or military
power. Modern empires built and maintained primarily by economic entanglement
and the formation of supranational bodies.
Today wins the empire that is economically and technically superior in terms of
production, including ideological production via media of all kinds. The
military plays a role, but more as the ultimate power factor, they would rather
not use. The U.S. has such divided the world into five military watch area :
Latin America, Europe , the Middle East , the Pacific and North America with
700 military bases in 150 countries , making the U.S. by far strongest, but not
Empire wants through its flow of goods, services and culture create an appeal
that citizens appreciate. These prospects want to convey to citizens in the
periphery, to get them interested in getting under the empire's umbrella. Ukraine
is a case in point, when the U.S. and the EU want entice them over to their
sphere of influence.
U.S. and EU want to appear as a benevolent hegenom, offering citizens the best
living conditions in the world. They play on their citizens' self-righteous
attitude. This is very evident when you reside in the U.S., where many
expressed that they live in the best country in the world. This is why so many
in the periphery looking to get there.
With this approach, I see two great empires and one becoming: U.S. / EU, Russia
and China. It is primarily ideological empires to promote and secure the
neoliberal hegemony. U.S. / EU whose productive forces is
economically and technologically superior are gaining ground and is backed by
the World Bank and the IMF. (NATO is mainly for an extremely military threat.) Which
of the empires that will win in the long run is uncertain. But in the case of
Ukraine USA / EU tries to exploit a political vacuum to get the country in its
sphere of influence.
