Ukrainian Terror Came To United States

It took five and half years for US congressmen to “see through” the true goals and objectives of the Ukrainian right-wing unit “Azov”. Unexpectedly for many, 40 representatives of Congress signed a petition to the US State Department demanding to include this battalion (at least, in the document it is called a battalion) in the official list of foreign terrorist organisations.

This appeal has caused shock in the Ukraine and backlash from many officials. And the Ukrainian social network users have already blamed Moscow for everything, it turns out that “40 Russian agents” are entrenched in the US Congress.

What happened? What caused such an amazing decision from the US politicians, so many years not noticing the war crimes of “Azov” in the Donbas?

The fact is that the activity of the Ukrainian “heroes of the ATO” and their supporters moved to American soil.

This is clearly indicated by the congressmen’s message, drafted by the young politician Max Rose. It openly says that they are concerned about the fact that “Azov” and similar structures in the Ukraine recruit and train American right-wing radicals, who are already using their combat skills in the United States.

Now in the States, two proceedings connected with crimes of the American participants of the Ukrainian ATO or their supporters are quite actively discussed. The most high profile is the murder of a married couple in Florida in April 2018. Two American citizens, who in 2016-2017 took part in fights in Donbas on the “Right Sector” side, are accused. The immediate killer was arrested after a hot pursuit, and his accomplice managed to escape back to the Ukraine, where the issue of his extradition to the United States is now being considered. Moreover, the Ukrainian media raised a noisy campaign in support of the militant – they say, he may face the death penalty in America, so the “hero of the ATO” cannot be extradited. Nobody there even asks the question: if this American is involved in the murder of peaceful civilians in Florida, how many such murders he could carry out in Donbas?

Studying the links of this militant helped American law enforcement to prevent other high profile crimes in the United States. A month ago, the FBI in Kansas arrested one of its serviceman, who maintained a correspondence with the said “hero of ATO” and discussed plans to kill anti-fascists and politicians, the explosion of the office of the agency CNN and other terrorist attacks. Among other things, he admitted that he planned to go to the Ukraine and join the ranks of the “Azov” battalion. And it is worth noting that the US Department of Justice commenting on this case, directly called “Azov” a “violent right wing” organisation.

That’s why they are worried in America. Not so long ago, Congress heard an extensive report by former FBI agent Ali Safwan, who studied right-wing movements around the world and the links between them. Particular attention is paid in the report on “Azov”, whose foreign cells, according to the authors, began to play for neo-Nazis around the world the same role played for the jihadists of the planet the “aktab-al-hidamat” organisation, engaged in recruiting international fighters for “al-Qaida”. “As with jihadist groups, the goal of many of these people is to return to their countries of origin (or third countries) to disrupt and create acts of violence, and to recruit new members for their purposes”, the report states.

In fact, this passage worried the most the American congressmen. Max Rose in his petition allows a blatant inaccuracy, mentioning the Australian terrorist Brenton Tarrant, who in March of this year, staged a massacre in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. The congressman proves that Tarrant in his “Manifesto” declared his involvement in “Azov”. In fact, the mass murderer only indicated that he was in the Ukraine, without specifying where and with whom. It is possible that he also graduated from the ATO school, even talked with Ukrainian neo-Nazis. In any case, the Ukraine has become, perhaps the only country in the world where this “Manifesto” was published in the form of a brochure and advertised. Not only that, the Ukrainian right-wing radicals called Tarrant their “twin”, hinting that they had links with him.

But we will emphasise: direct connections of the Australian terrorist with “Azov” are not revealed yet. Probably because in the Ukraine nobody even started an investigation of his local contacts. If law enforcement officers of other countries, after the terrorist attack in Christchurch, conduct a thorough analysis of Tarrant’s movements, frankly the Kiev authorities are not particularly concerned about it. That also raises some questions, it is known after all, who in the Ukrainian power structures covers “Azov’s” activities and publicly protects it.

The congressmen’s letter explicitly points to the fact that among the symbols Tarrant used in the attack was the same neo-Nazi symbol that shows off on the official standard of the Azov unit. Probably, it is not necessary to remind that this standard is officially approved by the National Guard of the Ukraine, against the background of this symbolism the President of the Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky already spoke about. This fact the American congressmen do not mention yet, demanding to punish only “Azov”, but not those who created it, financed and covered it at the official level.

However, they should understand, finally, that the terrorists created and supported by Washington (either Islamists or Nazis) will surely come to the American soil, sooner or later. And that it is necessary to fight against these phenomena together and everywhere, regardless of where in the world they arise and against whom they are fighting at this particular stage.

    There are elements in Ukraine that contribute to the rise of the right wing and derivative violence throughout but they are not the root of it. It is mainly a reaction to the western govts themselves and their anti western domestic policies believe it or not.

    reap what you sow america,

    Russia – We go fight in Syria to kill the terrorists before they become well trained experienced. Thus prevent them from coming back to Russia once the war is concluded and threatening stability

    US – We will finance train support and promote radicals in order to collapse governments we do not agree with. These radicals are so alien (Muslims) to our society (Christians) that they cannot blend in there fore cannot cause terrorism here.

    so, what went wrong the two factors (Muslims and Christians) You see the when us wanted regime change they rely up the Muslims to do so, but they won’t Muslims into their country without proper screening. or unless they are seeking asylum and are war criminals like shite helmets (sorry finger slipped but is was funner so i kept it)

    This is the flash point the Azov battalions fits that bill perfectly, But they are Christians, that are paid by the Ukrainian government. They have no loyalty to US state and don’t depend it to survive, and since they are Christians, they will blend perfectly well with local Americans.

    these are experienced trained people that have found a common values and ideas with american people.

    ” However, they should understand, finally, that the terrorists created and supported by Washington (either Islamists or Nazis) will surely come to the American soil, sooner or later.”

    That will be perfect Karma for the US.
    Crowdfunding the ASOV + Islamists within US might be in order :)

    A terrorist here, a terrorist there, everywhere a terrorist. Why are you so terrified of those that disagree with you? Well, the Bolsheviks, also created by America, never came to haunt them…

    NO. Ukrainian Terror came FROM United-States.

    The article below links into the above. Ironic the timing.

    Remember Igor Kolomoisky, who was ‘persona non grata’ over in the US, well, until he gave a job to the step-son of the US Secretary of State and a job to the son of the US Vice President. What happened next. Burisma Holdings – who employed the boys, part of the Privatt Group, which was owned by Kolomoisky, who founded the Nazi ‘Azov’ Battalion and also was head of some European Jewish Community over in Ukraine. He also happened to be the oligarch in control of Ukraine aviation and air traffice control.

    So, you have Kolomoisky, heavily involved in events in Ukraine and one of Zelenskys mentors, who also had control of Burisma Holdings. Then you had the other Zelensky mentor, Soros, who I believe took Naftogaz under his control and then got Rothschild to purchase it, who also funded the Ukraine coup d’etat. Are Soros and Kolomoisky having a few problems. Remember, the Russian gas stops flowing through the Ukraine transit pipelines in December, when Naftogaz is due another Head of the Company and also bearing in mind the Dutch have signed off Nord Stream II. Which was meant to be cancelled, in order for Ukraine to continue with their Russian gas transit pipelines.

    Schiff – linked to Ukraine Arm’s Dealer, who is running the ‘Trump Impeachment’ scam.
    Pelosi – whose son is working for an Ukrainian Energy Company, helping Schiff with the impeachment scam.
    McCain, now deceased and not forgetting his good mate Lindsey Graham and why were they celebrating the New Year, over in Ukraine, back in January 2017. The month that Trump got the keys to the White House and Biden was also in Ukraine.
    Biden and Son – who did well out of Burisma Holdings.
    John Kerry and Step-son – who did well out of Burisma Holdings.

    Why does Alexandra Chalupa have so much power? Did her parents leave Ukraine on the Dulles/Gehlen CIA cruise liners, known as ‘Operation Paperclip’? How many others, whose parents/grand parents were given passage, back in 1947, via Operation Paperclip are involved in events today, concerning Ukraine and the Atlantic Council?
