More MSM garbage happening it seems. I was totally unaware of this, but that could be my fault for not paying attention enough.


Seventy-three years ago this October, the infamous “Odessa Massacre” of 1941, which killed more than 30,000 Jews in the Ukrainian port city and surrounding areas, was carried out by Romanian fascist troops in collaboration with their Nazi patrons and allies. The pogrom, merely one of many against Jews and other minorities in Ukraine, is a stark historical reminder to the people of Odessa (and all those throughout the former Soviet Union who fought against fascism during the war) of the depravity, inhumanity, and barbarism of Nazis and their collaborators.



And now, 73 years later, Odessa is the scene of yet another horrific war crime carried out by fascists against innocent civilians. The fire and massacre at the Trade Unions building which killed dozens of anti-fascist activists and employees in the building, will serve as a painful testimony to the ongoing struggle against the junta in Kiev and its neo-Nazi paramilitary foot soldiers. This obvious war crime, along with a number of others committed by the Right Sector and other ultra-nationalist (read fascist) militias, should undoubtedly be the issue making headlines around the world.



And yet, it seems that somehow the slaughter of innocents, and the issue of criminal accountability for those who ordered and carried out the massacre, has been completely and systematically distorted and/or omitted from the Western narrative. Instead, the corporate media has deliberately attempted to obscure the true nature of the events of that day, and those leading up to and subsequent to it, in order to dilute the impact of the self-evident, and quite damning, criminality of the fascist militias and their leaders and patrons.


Always hiding or shaping an opinion from the public.

Here is the link to the full story.

Seriously? Nazi war crimes justify Russia invading Ukraine seventy years later?

a reply to: DJW001 Maybe you need to tell NATO what is going on because they seem to say something different Russian troops will not enter Ukraine, but will pursue its national interests via other means, NATO's top military commander and head of the US European Command, General Philip Breedlove, said.

"Today I would tell you I don't think that's the most likely course of action...I think now that [President] Putin may be able to accomplish his objectives in eastern Ukraine and never go across the border with his forces," Breedlove told a defense conference in Ottawa.

He also blamed Moscow for having a hand in the unrest in Ukraine. rt.com...

He meant what's left of Ukraine. They are already in Crimea (legally still part of Ukraine when they invaded) and it is likely that Special Forces are already in Eastern Ukraine as "military advisers."

Am I the one justifying invading another sovereign nation because of what a third party did there seventy years ago?

They never invaded Crimea they were already there and technically Crimea was it's own autonomous nation. The Russian base there held over 20K military personnel.

But the moment they set foot off their bases under arms and assaulted Ukrainian bases, it was an invasion. There is just no way around that fact.

Yes there is because the legal president of Crimea asked Putin for help from the Neo Nazis that were trying to take over the nation. When you are asked to go into a nation it isn't an invasion.

But Yanukovych was no longer the legal president, and not all of the legally elected members of parliament who impeached Yanukovych for betraying his country and abandoning it in a crisis are neo-Nazis. The entire crisis was fabricated from Moscow to justify the invasion. It is incredible to me that someone as intelligent as you seem to be cannot see through such a flimsy pretext.

There was no legal election for a new president. The impeachment process was done by the people who staged a coup of the government so legally he was still president.

Impeachment procedure is written down in ukraine's constitution. Anyithing else it putsch.



"Are the current authorities legitimate? The Parliament is partially, but all the others are not. The current Acting President is definitely not legitimate. There is only one legitimate President, from a legal standpoint. Clearly, he has no power. However, as I have already said, and will repeat: Yanukovych is the only undoubtedly legitimate President. "There are three ways of removing a President under Ukrainian law: one is his death, the other is when he personally steps down, and the third is impeachment. The latter is a well-deliberated constitutional norm. It has to involve the Constitutional Court, the Supreme Court and the Rada. This is a complicated and lengthy procedure. It was not carried out. Therefore, from a legal perspective this is an undisputed fact."

Well stated and that what many of the Pro EU Kiev Supporters either fail to see or are in self denial of that as when the Pro EU Stormed in the Ukrainian Parliament what you think there demands were in the first place?


If there demands were not made those politicians would have being killed in the Parliament, the Pro EU forces weren't just simple protesters from western Ukraine they were trained.

You would think a simple protester would do something like marching and storming well strategical placed plan?

Things aren't going your way, so you thought you'd play the old "anti-semite" card, huh? Maybe it's time to get a new playbook mate.
