Eight men were just arrested by the Spanish regime on suspicion of going to fight to support the Donbass rebels, and anti-Left "conspiracy theorists" rhetoric used by the government to justify this, basing the arrest on their Left-leaning antifascist stance.



The National Police on Friday detained eight Spaniards suspected of fighting alongside pro-Russian forces in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. The arrests took place in Asturias, Catalonia, Extremadura, Murcia, Navarre and Madrid. Three of the suspects are former members of the Spanish armed forces, and one is confirmed to have been on the frontline, according to anti-terrorist sources. The men are all aged between 20 and 30 years old.

The eight Spaniards belong to several different communist organizations, and had received support from an "unofficial pro-Russian European network". The operation was completed after three of the men returned to Spain during February – the last of the men arrived last week.

Police sources have not yet stated whether Rafael Muñoz Pérez, 27, and Ángel Davilla-Rivas, 22, were among the detainees. The pair were last year confirmed to have joined the Vostok Batallion, under the orders of Igor Strelkov, the head of the Armed Forces of the People’s Republic of Donetsk.


McCartyism back in business.

Read the rest HERE

From the mouth of a Spanish EU official, using the infamous "conspiracy theorists" straw men to accuse them in that other press article:



Francisco de Borja Lasheras, associate director of the Madrid office of the European Council on Foreign Relations, a think tank, said there was “a long narrative among certain segments of the Spanish left that anything that happens in Eastern Europe is a C.I.A. conspiracy and part of a Western imperialist agenda.”


Soooo... they are conspiracy theorists fighting against a political imperialist conspiracy that's actually VALIDATED by the very officials behind it.


This is overtly State repression of people STRICTLY for their political beliefs, they did nothing against any Spanish people or even national interests, and this goes straight in line with the Nazis, Mussoloni's and Franco's repression of communists and other radical Left people. And it's people who supposedly went there to fight against Neonazis battallions. Looks like the current regime in Spain isn't so "neutral" on the situation in Ukraine.

And this, in the context of Spain's new Gag Law and the Operation Pandora that followed right after, to clamp down on dissenters by using "anti-terror" policing...



A group of Spaniards who define themselves as “anti-capitalists” told news agency Europa Press last September that they had traveled to eastern Ukraine to fight alongside pro-Russian separatists to combat the “resurgence of the Fourth Reich in Europe.”


Well... looks like it's a self-fulfilling prophecy!

It`s trying to discourage people from standing up to the "master plan."

You won`t see people on the other side being arrested.


That Gag Law is horrible, you may only protest if it serves the "master plan," the rest is forbidden even if it`s just peacefully.

Here`s another example of it which I just saw (remember, wages or now as low as 41$ a month and the value of the Hryvnia is 4-6 times lower now to the Dollar, monthly minimum wage isn`t even enough to pay the outstanding loans of people anymore), so people protested peacefully about the dire condition they are now in...

Hryvnia in free fall...


No money left and want to protest peacefully about it, you may not...


Let that be a warning about what happens when an economy collapses.

If Spain feels that it needs to detain domestic supporters of armed conflict then I guess that's their prerogative. Maybe we'll see them arresting those to the right as well. Or maybe not...

And with a warning coming from Alan Greenspan himself, you better prepare yourself for those kinds of situations to happen also in The West.

Russia could learn a lot from Spain. Spain, like Russia was a dictatorship within living memory, only Spain is now a full democracy and Russia is retreating back into autocracy, but RT.com and Russia's extensive state-owned/controlled media would not dare say such things.

Anyhow, if Spain arrests people who have been fighting abroad, then what's the issue. At the very least the authorities need to satisfy these people are not a danger.

People have always gone and fought in others countries wars. I do believe Americans did it for China just before WW2.If you live in a supposedly 'free' country,then your government should not have an issue with you fighting in another countries war,unless it is a war that your country is in. i didn't know that Spain was fighting anyone in Ukraine,so why should those fighters be arrested? Kiev is pulling up fighters from all over and no one says a thing about it.

Considering the agreement between Kiev and everyone else is no foreign fighters, why would Spain want to ignore the agreement?

I would imagine if those individuals were going to support Kiev you would have a different complaint on Spains actions?

But that's not the case. The current policies of this regime are clamping down on many of those from the Left, as this is officially known as a "populist ultra-conservative" regime. In many European countries these days when a bunch of fascist or racist hooligans are attacking immigrants, Jews, Roma people the police is often found to let them do it, then defend the bullies when they get to be counter-protested by antifascists.

Conveniently, the latest arrest and prosecution of Neonazis I've seen was in Russia, and they got a long jail sentence...

Because the Western governments and their media would rather keep it hush-hush... just as with the Neonazis on the Ukrainian side. Sure, New York Times and a few other media went on to talk about the issue... after months, but they'll still be victimizing Neonazi battalions who've been bombing Donetsk civilians in the first place. It's true to the current schizophrenic nature of this whole media infrastructure.
