Ukraine Ukraine

Ukrainian Television Show Features Holocaust Denier

(February 7, 2008)

An interview with the head of a Ukrainian organization called "Historical Truth" minimized the extent of the Holocaust and referred to Jews as "kikes", according to UCSJ's Lviv monitor. On February 5, 2008 the Antena cable channel featured an interview with Kostya Zarudny, who holds a Ph.D. in history, on the topic of "the distorted history of Ukraine." While the extent of collaboration by some Ukrainian nationalists with the Nazis is a tricky subject, made murkier by Soviet era propaganda on the one hand, and revisionist claims justifying the rehabilitation of Ukrainians who fought against the USSR on the other, Dr. Zarudny's statements were distinctly unsubtle.

"We see how the lie of the Holocaust continues in Ukraine, how once again the fantastic figure of six million is brought out, and that in Ukraine one and a half million kikes were supposedly killed," he said. "How long is this kike lie going to brainwash us?" He then went on to mock eyewitness testimony describing the existence of gas chambers and other well-documented horrors of the Nazi death camps.

UCSJ's monitor reports that the moderator changed the subject after this outburst and did not raise it again for the rest of the program.

Its appropriate that this example came from Ukraine, where we see history erased and ignored for fabricated lies. Jewish supremacy and deceit so well illustrated that the Ukrainian Holocaust of an-estimated 7-MILLION White people is basically a forgotten event usurped by the masters of the lie and their "Magic 6 million" kikes.
Great pics btw of Ukrainian solidarity with Serbians..images like that while disgusting to the kike are inspirational for White folk.

Tidbit from a long, two-part article on Ukraine:


Two notes about the students. First, the young women.

The rawest sewage of Western “culture” is pumped into Ukraine like Russian gas, but without threats of being cut off. Some of the imported sewage is, in turn, further contaminated. If seeing an American rap “music” video makes you want to shoot the TV, watching Ukrainian rap “music” videos makes you want to shoot yourself.

And the hyper-sexualized character of this cultural infusion is embraced by so many young women that Lviv can seem like one giant red-light district. Their dress tends to run from the tacky to the outright skanky: fish-net stockings, hot pants, mini-skirts, shiny patent-leather go-go boots with spiked heals.

Default "Racist" attacks on rise

Racially motivated violence reached unprecedented heights so far this year in Kyiv and throughout Ukraine, with more than 40 attacks and as many as six murders, according to nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that are tracking such incidents.

In the past three weeks alone, two African citizens died on Kyiv streets, one a confirmed murder, the other not. But those two deaths brought to the number of suspected hate killings to six so far this year in the city.

Regarding the situation in Kyiv right now, and throughout Ukraine, it is not something to joke about, said Dr. Johnson Aniki, a Nigerian community leader in Kyiv.

Foreigners, including Africans, live in fear. People are afraid to walk on the streets, people are afraid to walk home after work. The situation is very serious today.

The attacks are all the more alarming, considering the number of Africans living in Ukraine is estimated to be only 10,000. Also, in a nation dominated by ethnic Ukrainians and Russians, other groups might account for as little as 4 percent of the national population of 46 million people.

Three years ago, Africans and other ethnic minorities in Ukraine said they started to feel a rise in hostility towards them, mirroring events in Russia.

At that time, in 2006, watchdogs recorded 14 racially motivated attacks and two murders, and police minimized the problem, labeling the perpetrators of these acts mere hooligans.

Since then, the recorded number of violent attacks against ethnic minorities and foreigners in Ukraine has skyrocketed. In 2007, there were 68 confirmed attacks, including eight murders.

Watchdogs and African community leaders stress that these figures do not come close to the true extent of harassment. Official statistics dont exist.

Prompted by the recent violence, Aniki was among the organizers of a press conference held June 11 to raise awareness of the growing problem with xenophobic and racist crimes, and to urge Ukraines current government to implement stronger measures against hate crimes.

Prominent members of Ukraines African community were joined by Anna German, Party of the Regions politician, and Walid Harfouch, a person of Lebanese heritage who is known in Ukraines entertainment industry. Also attending were a lawyer representing a hate crime victim in Dnepropetrovsk and a representative of the Ministry of the Interior.

What is happening today in Ukraine could be received as completely unexpected, a turning point, said Dr. John George Manuwuike, the chairman of the Ukrainian chapter of the Nigerians In Diaspora Organization Europe (NIDOE).

We decided nevertheless to bring this question to the attention of the international community, so that today, the current Ukrainian administration takes strong measures to prevent the further development of this and extirpate racism in Ukraine as a social phenomena.



Racist police

Members of Ukraines African community said that the police seem apathetic to their cause and are often racist themselves.

Attacks against Africans have been going on since I came to Ukraine, said Charles Asante Yeboa, a citizen of Ghana who has been living in Kyiv for more than eight years.

Yeboa, the president of Kyivs African Center, said the center now records no less than three incidents a day.

But before incidents were sporadic, not regular, and mostly perpetrated by police, he said, who would demand documents and accuse a person of not having them in order to get a bribe.

After the Orange Revolution, Yeboa said, there was a period of calm in attacks, but then the nature of the attacks changed. Its no longer by the police, this time its by so called hooligans, he said.

Recent fatal victims include Baie Olubaiode, in his 40s, a handicapped Nigerian citizen who worked at Shuliavka market, and Atunga Luwila, 47, an asylum seeker from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Olubaiode was found dead with 10 knife wounds to his neck and stomach on May 29 in Kyivs Solmianskyi district. Watchdogs said the suspects are two young men, but so far no one has been charged for the murder. Reports also indicate that there were witnesses but nobody helped him.

Luwila, who had been on his way to work, was found dead lying face down on Harmantnaya street, near the Bolshevik shopping complex on the morning of June 9. He was found by a co worker around 8:40 a.m. Witnesses reported seeing bruises to the victims face and apparent severe head trauma. Police behavior at the scene alarmed witnesses and provoked rumors that they were hiding something.

According to members of Ukraines African community who arrived at the crime scene, police prohibited anyone from taking photographs of the body and told them the cause of death was most likely an epileptic seizure, which caused the victim to fall and hit his head on a metal pole nearby. The investigation is ongoing.



Government inaction

Watchdogs are also frustrated by what they see as inaction by Ukraines government.

While they are doing better at fighting racially motivated violence and pursuing cases where they werent before, said Jeffrey Labovitz, chief of mission for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the slowness to change was perhaps due to naivete. The threat was so new that government authorities didnt know how to react, but nonetheless, he doesnt understand the hesitancy to change.

First, they said there was no racism, then they said they were hooligans, then they accepted that maybe there are some aspects of racism, but they were very isolated cases, Yeboa said.

Then, they say OK, there are skinheads, about 500, who are committing these acts. Skinheads cannot be hooligans in the first place, he added.

Hate crimes are on the rise across Ukraines major cities, affecting business leaders, athletes, students and immigrants alike.

Last year for the first time, even women reported being attacked, said Labovitz.

IOM is one of several NGOs who collected comprehensive records of all attacks that occurred within the last three years.

Their records show the wide range of harassment and violent behavior ethnic minorities have been subject to over the last three years.

On Jan. 31 of this year, for example, a Libyan citizen was kidnapped, beaten and robbed after hailing a taxi. He ws driven to the city outskirts where a group of men beat him and stole his documents.

On Feb. 12, also this year, the black wife of an American diplomat reported being verbally harassed and threatened by a single Ukrainian male for several minutes at a local park, while walking with her young child at around 9 a.m.

The incident that most struck him, Labovitz said, was the death of 18 year old Joseph Bunto, a Congolese asylum seeker who was stabbed 18 times on Jan. 27 after running down to a local store to buy water.

The violence, experts say, is being perpetrated by a small, but organized skinhead subculture that has taken root in Ukraines major urban centers, particularly in cities with large foreign student populations, such as Kyiv, Kharkiv, Uzhhorod, Odesa and Vinnitsya.

Africans are particularly targeted in racist attacks, but Arabs, Asians, and Jews are also targeted.

The worst problem appears to be in Kyiv, where police and human rights organizations have counted 500 skinheads and where there is the highest record of racially motivated attacks. Watchdogs and Ukraines government estimate that there is a total of between 1,500 and 2,000 skinheads across Ukraine.

Previously, you could find a lot of Africans on Khreshatyk, near the central post office, now its a forbidden place for Africans. This is going on in different regions of Kyiv, Aniki said.

Ukraines skinheads lack telltale signs of their ideology, such as the shaved heads and patent leather black boots. Today there are none of these signs, this means that they are among us, maybe they live on our streets, at the same entrance, on the same floor as us, they could be our neighbors, or at our place of work. So we are the only ones who can protect ourselves, said Aniki.

Videos found on the Internet by watchdogs show groups of young men in everyday clothing, sneaking up on unsuspecting victims, beating them up in front of the camera and burning their documents. Watchdogs said the videos, which have since been taken off the Internet, were found on Ukrainian and Russian extremist Web sites.

We believe they are an organized body because of the meticulous way in which they perpetrate these atrocities, said Yeboa. Its coordinated, or specially planned, to either intimidate, attack, kill, or whatever, foreigners, especially Africans.

On Jan. 10, Yeboa himself was attacked while walking by a group of about 15 men, aged 16 to about 30 years old, and armed with a knife, iron bars and bottles.

They were saying lets cut his head. I had to hold the guy who had the knife, and the knife entered my ear here, it cut here, and entered here deep, Yeboa said, gesturing to his eye and different parts of his face.

It was in the last minute, when I was holding the person who had the knife and all of a sudden, a private minivan came around. He came to stop there and as he stopped, the light fell on them (the attackers) and they all ran away.

Yeboa said his attackers were caught and arrested, but as of today, they still havent been prosecuted.



Media fueling the fire

Ukraines media is also accused of feeding into the extremist groups cause by spreading one sided and negative reporting of the nations immigrants and foreigners.

Yeboa was disturbed by an article in Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper about Joseph Buntos Jan.27 murder.

Instead of going straight to the point, the media wrote under that he is a refugee and claims to be living on 40 or 50 dollars a month, trying to divert the whole incident, trying to create the impression that he was involved in some illegal activities and maybe he was killed because of that. Yeboa said.

Presidential administration was surrounded by Negroes, was the title of another article that shocked watchdogs, about an anti racism rally in Kyiv last year. The article was published by UNIAN, Ukraines main information service.

On June 13, another popular Ukrainian newspaper, Zerkalo Tyzhden, wrote a sensationalist report titled Kyiv: a paradise for illegals?

It appears that if a unified state body for migrant issues doesnt start working soon in Ukraine, and doesnt implement a law about migration services, government authorities will have to shift the center of permanent language discussion from the Slavic group, to Turkic, Semitic or other languages, journalist Inna Vedernikova wrote.

The article goes on to provide statistics about the sharp rise in crimes committed by foreigners, later referring to the problem in terms of foreigners and illegal migrants without clearly distinction between the two.

It cites Kyivs city prosecutor, Yevgenyi Blazhivskiy, saying that the amount of unaccounted (unregistered) immigrants has exceeded 1 million.

However, according to IOMs Labovitz, any figures claiming to show the number of illegal immigrants in Ukraine are inaccurate, as there has been no research or way to track numbers.



NGOs filling the gap

Prominent international NGOs have stepped in to fill what they call Ukraines pronounced lack of statistics on hate crimes.

There are very few consistent or well publicized statistics collected by government agencies, cited a report by an IOM supported initiative. Nor do the various government bureaus separately responsible for what might be classified at (sic) hate crimes i.e. the Ministry of Interior, the State Security Service and the General Prosecutor coordinate their activities in a meaningful way.

Experts say there has been a lack of monitoring beyond Kyiv. That will be changing, as local and international NGOs step up efforts over the next year to combat xenophobia and racism through monitoring and awareness campaigns.

At the beginning of 2007, IOM teamed up with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and Amnesty International and other NGOs and organizations to create the Diversity Initiative, a comprehensive project that aims to foster awareness and communicate ideas on how to fight xenophobia and racism in Ukraine.

The initiative, with cooperation from over 30 organizations, is broken into three main subgroups, legal, government, and civic, each organized to fund projects aimed at spreading awareness and making progress in their respective spheres.

Kyiv based Center for Civil Liberties initiated the first countrywide monitoring program this May and hopes to publish their results by the end of the year.

Labovitz and other watchdogs say the fight against racism and xenophobia in Ukraine is missing an important component, which is an information campaign at schools and within broader society to educate Ukrainians on diversity and other cultures.

Despite 16 years of independence, Ukraine remains a highly insulated, homogenous society, and its citizens lack exposure to other cultures and ways of life, particularly to different ethnicities.



Tarnishing Ukraines image

The rise in hate crimes and the Ukrainian governments slowness to punish the perpetrators of the violence, threatens to tarnish Ukraines international reputation at a critical time.

Ukraines politicians are striving to bring the country down a path towards European Union integration and NATO accession, as well as attract investment before the UEFA 2012 football championships.

Regarding what Ukraines government aims to achieve today, I would say the presidents party, in the area of democratization of society compared to other post Soviet countries is quite laudable, NIDOEs Manuwuike said. But at the same time, what were discussing today is a big negative on the reputation that Ukraine is building in front of the world, at home.

A study published this past January by the Kennan Institute, a U.S. based think tank associated with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, found that Kyiv has become a leading destination for transnational migrants from Asian, African and some Middle Eastern countries.

Most of Ukraines migrants come from China, Vietnam, Pakistan, India and Afghanistan, as well as African countries, particularly Nigeria, Angola, Somalia and the DRC, as well as Indonesia and Iran.

Asian and African migrants typically participate in retail trade and services.

By overcoming deep rooted prejudices against migrants, Ukraine will be able to find the human resources required to grow and prosper in a global marketplace, the report stressed.

Despite setbacks, watchdogs see signs of improvement. The government recently started using its problematic hate crimes law, Article 161, to prosecute in some cases. The law, which has existed since Soviet times, has been used only four times in history, three of which occurred just this past April and May for hate crimes that have taken place over the last three years.

They are the first cases of hate crimes convictions in Ukraine for direct violence against individuals.

It is uncertain what the punishments in each case will be, but watchdogs see it as a definite step in the right direction.

"Despite 16 years of independence, Ukraine remains a highly insulated, homogenous society, and its citizens lack exposure to other cultures and ways of life, particularly to different ethnicities."

Golly, we have to straighten those hillbilly Ukies out!

It blows the mind, but what is even more bizzare is how elected officials the world over are blind to this or do not dare act upon it. The only exception to this being Russia and that is probably only to a degree.

Astounding how desperate they are to sell out to the new Soviet massa. Its absolutely bizarre and sickening how 99% of all white politicians seem to serve the same international system and prescribe to the same marxoid world view.

jewsign Ukrainian officials accused of "anti-Semitism."

Published: 09/21/2008

Two local Jewish leaders in a Ukrainian city accused a member of the city council of spreading anti-Semitic propaganda.

In an open letter released last week, the leaders of Jewish organizations in Kherson accused Sergey Kirichenko, a member of the Union of Left Powers in Ukraine, of systematic anti-Semitic propaganda.

According to the letter, Kirichenko in several appearances on the local radio show Vik and in the local Vik publication accused Jews of robbing the Ukrainians, plotting to enslave them and exterminate Slavs in general. Kirichenko also said that Jews occupied the region," and he posted Catechism of a Jew in the USSR -- an updated version of the notorious "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" -- on his personal Web site.

Kirichenko also praised the Nazi occupation of Kherson, a city of 329,000 in southern Ukraine, during the Holocaust.

Hate speech is illegal in Ukraine. It is unclear whether local authorities will bring charges over Kirichenkos statements.

Kiev street renamed for slain Ukrainian

June 24, 2009

http://jta.org/news/article/2009/06/...ated-ukrainian

KIEV, Ukraine (JTA) -- Kievs City Council renamed a street to honor a Ukrainian politician assassinated by a Jewish man in a revenge killing.

Petlura Street was named to commemorate the 130th anniversary of the birthday of Simon Petlura, who served as head of the Ukrainian National Republic from 1919 until he was killed on May 26, 1926 in Paris.

Samuel Shwartsbard killed Petlura in revenge for massacres allegedly organized by Petlura during Ukraine's Civil War. Petluras bandits had murdered 15 members of Shwartsbards family, including his parents.

A French court acquitted Shwartsbard.

Historians have debated whether Petlura simply did not do enough to stop the massacres, thus appealing to his supporters with anti-Semitic tendencies, or whether he actually tried to stop violence against Jews.

Ukraine's head rabbi set to return national medal over Bandera decision

http://en.rian.ru/exsoviet/20100202/157750863.html

The head rabbi of Ukraine and Kiev said on Tuesday he would reject a national award over the recent decision by the country's outgoing president to declare "Nazi collaborator" Stepan Bandera a national hero.

Viktor Yushchenko's January 22 move has already fueled fierce debate in Ukraine, where Bandera is a controversial figure, with his mainly West Ukrainian supporters considering him a hero. An MP from Sevastopol in the Crimea burned his passport in protest against the move, and two people have challenged the decree in court.

"I was awarded Ukraine's Order of Merit, 3rd Class, but because of Yushchenko's decree I am planning to give it back to the government soon," Moshe Reuven Asman told the Segodnya daily.

The religious leader of Ukrainian Jews said he was indignant at the president's move which he said had no political future.

"This is a hideous blow to Ukraine's international image, and, unfortunately, the new authorities will have to face the consequences," Asman said.

Yushchenko lost the January 17 elections and will leave office soon as the ex-Soviet country is facing a runoff on February 7 between frontrunner Viktor Yanukovych, the leader of the opposition Party of Regions, and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

An influential Jewish human rights organization based in the United States, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, expressed its concern last weekend by the fact that Yushchenko's controversial decree came "at the period when the world pauses to remember the victims of the Holocaust on January 27."

Default Ukrainian court annuls award to nationalist

Ukrainian court annuls award to nationalist

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...0Oa0wD9ER42U81

KIEV, Ukraine Ukrainian media are reporting that a court has overturned a decree posthumously awarding the nation's highest award to a nationalist leader whose insurgent army supported Nazi Germany for part of World War II.

Ukrainian television stations say the Donetsk regional court ruled Friday that former President Viktor Yushchenko's decree bestowing the Hero of Ukraine award on Stepan Bandera was illegal.

Bandera was a leader of Ukraine's nationalist movement, which included an insurgent army that for one period sided with the Nazis.

Yushchenko issued the decree weeks before his term ended in February. He called Bandera patriot, but the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish rights group, said Bandera's followers were linked to the deaths of thousands of Jews.
