War Crimes and Atrocities Committed by Ukraine’s Armed Forces and National Guard

EDITOR'S CHOICE | 06.07.2014 | 23:40
We bring to the attention of Global Research Readers a video on the atrocities committed in Eastern Ukraine including the indiscriminate killing of unarmed civilians. This video was put together by the communities in Eastern Ukraine which are the object of  the attacks.
The mainstream media is silent on the issue. These videos are the object of censorship.
As described in the video,  Ukraine’s National Guard which is supported and financed by the West is controlled by Neo-Nazis with Nazi emblems. 
Documented in the video, war crimes are being committed by both the Ukrainian Army and the Ukrainian National Guard.
In the media’s coverage of unfolding atrocities directed against civilians in Eastern Ukraine, the words Nazi, Fascist or Neo-Nazi are a taboo. They have been eliminated from the anthology of investigative reporting.
The mainstream media by denying the very existence of these crimes against humanity committed by Neo-Nazi military and paramilitary formations on the orders of the Kiev government is complicit under the Nuremberg Principles of “crimes against peace”
Spread the word far and wide. In solidarity with the people of  Eastern Ukraine.

Mainstream media channels won’t show you any of this footage. This is a war they don’t want you to see:.
Ukraine’s Kiev Regime is not “Officially” A Neo-Nazi Government By Prof Michel Chossudovsky, June 01, 2014
Kiev’s warmongers and fascists on the ground keep on killing innocent civilians.
90% of the footage shown here was filmed by the locals and is readily available on YouTube. The blood that’s being spilled over by the Kiev regime will never be washed away.
If you want to see pictures of July 2nd airstrike on Staraya Kondrashovka, here they are (WARNING, GRAPHIC)
The Ukrainian mainstream media immediately blamed the incident on the rebels who don’t even have an aircraft.
On the 3rd of July, a deputy commander of the Public Relations of the Azov Battalion admitted that the cause of fire was pilot “error”.
All of the war crimes committed by Ukrainian government and their punitive battalions are blamed on the rebels.
The rebels wouldn’t kill their own parents, wives, and children since over 90% of the rebels are made up of local citizens.
Facts speak otherwise and images don’t lie.
Ukrainian propaganda machine is really on it. Disgusting.

Kiev promises war against Russia?

News | 07.07.2014 | 00:08
The dangerous bellicose rhetoric and saber rattling declarations by the Kiev authorities continue to reach newer and higher levels with the new minister of defense wasting no time to issue yet another wild and dangerous statement. During his confirmation hearing to the post of defense minister in front of the Ukrainian post-coup parliament Valeriy Heletey boldly declared that there would be "… a victory parade in Ukraine's Sevastopol." Such a statement for all intents and purposes might be seen as being tantamount to a declaration of war against Russia.
Given that Crimea is part of Russia, as is Sevastopol, which has a special federal status, such a statement by the leader of the armed forces of Ukraine can in no way be taken lightly. The implication that somehow the Ukrainian army will in the future be in a position to hold a victory day parade on Russian soil, something that could only take place after the military defeat of Russia, is a direct promise of war against Russia.
Official Moscow has for the most part ignored the ridiculous delusional statement. However, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin did state on social media that: "In connection with the futile idea of conducting a victory parade in 'Ukraine's' Crimea, Kiev decided to limit the holding of a gay-parade in their capital."
The response from official Sevastopol was a bit harsher. "The intentions of the Ukrainian defense minister do not coincide with the plans of the federal city of Russia for the next one thousand years. We are not planning to hold Ukrainian parades here, only parades of Russian ships and military units and free Russian citizens of Sevastopol", Itar-Tass quoted Deputy Governor of Sevastopol Yevgeny Dubovnik as saying.
Kiev continues to aggressively provoke Russia
Counting on the full support of their masters in the United States and NATO, Kiev continues to carry out actions that in any other context would bring about an open state of warfare between states.
Since the armed coup in December we have seen Dmitry Yarosh, the leader of the Right Sector, seizing Russian assets and properties in Ukraine, killing and kidnapping Russian journalists and citizens, hundreds of verbal attacks by "officials" on Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and top Russian leaders, death threats against officials of all levels, sanctions applied against Russian officials and even journalists by the Kiev, ethnic Russians killed and bombed on a daily basis, attacks on an embassy with the participation of the foreign minister, military incursions into Russian territory, the bombing of Russian border checkpoints, the stealing of Russian resources including 4.5 billion dollars in gas, false flag operations staged to blame Russia, continuous wild claims against Russia by top officials... and the list goes on.
Russia continues to attempt being patient and pursue a path of peace, diplomacy and negotiation, always taking the threat to civilians' lives into account as a matter of the highest import, but there may soon come a time when the delusional Kiev will eventually force Russia to respond with force.
Kiev channeling Washington
Apparently, having been mentored by their US sponsors, Kiev is using the exact same tactics that have been used by Washington in the invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and the attempt on Syria. The junta does not openly declare war on Russia because they know they would be squashed like ants, yet they attempt to provoke Russia into military action.
From the egregious media manipulation to transferring the blame for their own crimes onto the victims, Ukrainian government has shown that it has almost mastered US tactics used to demonize and dehumanize an "enemy". These tactics are being used while the junta continues to wage a war against Russia that the US is not going to do by itself. Like using Islamic terrorists as proxy armies against its Middle East enemies, their junta in Kiev has become nothing more than another proxy engaged in an operation for Washington.
Something in the Water?
If people were not dying and the country was not being torn apart, one might find the complete absurdity and delusional architecture of the junta a cause for hours of laughs. Just the fact that Kiev, like a mouse rattling a toothpick at an elephant, continues to make bellicose statements. But this is not a theater of the absurd but a real "power" that is engaged in punitive military operations against its own people.
The parallels between the attack on South Ossetia, taking place on the eve of the Olympics and the coup in Kiev are breathtaking. And like the tie eating Saakashvili, the absurdity of Washington's puppets in Kiev is almost the same. Like Saakashvili, who was promised full support by NATO, Kiev believes Washington's promises and behaves with such impunity that one has to believe they have been told they will be protected by NATO, should Russia decide to use force to defend its own security.
The junta should study what happened to Saakashvili and previous US puppets and the real "support" given by Washington to Georgia and Saakashvili who believed he was on a fast track to NATO. Kiev would have been advised to study how the nazis were defeated in WWII as well but in reality it is too late for that.
From Prison to Government Post
Like Yulia Timoshenko and a host of others, the latest additions to Kiev’s "government" seem to have been chosen from the rosters of the previously disgraced and the country's top oligarchs.
Although Valeriy Heletey has no significant military experience to speak of, which makes him eminently incompetent to act as a Defense Minister, this does not bother Poroshenko, who now has the right to make such appointments with a rubber stamp from the Verkhovna Rada. Poroshenko believes it is good not have a military officer in the post as the military is attempting to consolidate too much power.
Lieutenant General Viktor Muzhenko was confirmed as the new head of "the joint chiefs of staff". He was until recently a top "official" overseeing Kiev's "anti-terrorist operation" against those opposed to the junta.
The oligarchs are doing well in Ukraine, Kolomoisky was given a governorship, Poroshenko himself is the president, Timoshenko was released from prison, and now Yuriy Kosyuk will be responsible for defense issues in the presidential administration.
Then there is Alexander Turchinov, who was investigated in February 2006 along with his SBU deputy Andrei Kozhemyakin, regarding destroying FBI files. He was also investigated for destroying documents implicating Yulia Tymoshenko in crimes.
Then there are known traitors to Ukraine like the head of the SBU Valentin Nalyvaichenko, who was recruited by the CIA and even provided the CIA with their own room in the SBU headquarters to browse files.
Vitaly Klitschko and Arseny Yatsenyuk, who were revealed to be nothing more than puppets for Victoria Nuland and the West, Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandr Sych from Svoboda, as well as many other Svoboda members, such as Andrey Parubiy, Andrei Mokhnyk, Igor Shvaika and Oleg Makhnitsky – all, who were rewarded with top posts, although none of them were qualified.
Then there is the leader of the Right Sector Dmitry Yarosh, who was appointed Deputy Secretary of National Security. Dmitry Bulatov from the Ukrainian Union of Nationalists (UNA-UNSO) and his cohort Tatyana Chernovol.
So, Ukraine is now being run by traitors, criminal oligarchs, billionaires and CIA assets and the people, who oppose them, are being eradicated and terrorized into submission. But then who else would sell their own country down the river and kill their own citizens? Who else would sign agreements, giving away the country's resources and industries? Who else would provoke Russia, stealing billions of dollars' worth Russian gas, destroying entire towns and regions? Who else would agree to place NATO elements on their land and completely give up their sovereignty for a few bucks? Who else would send all of the country’s gold to be kept in the US? Well, the current line-up, of course.
