Right-Wing Politicians Usurp Power in Ukraine

Right-Wing Politicians Usurp Power in Ukraine

by Stephen Lendman

Fascists infest Ukraine's parliament. They gained majority control. They did so after dozens of pro-government legislators bolted the ruling Party of Regions.

They violated Friday's agreed on terms. They did so in league with Washington. They impeached President Viktor Yanukovych.

They ousted him. They declared him unconstitutionally unable to carry out his duties. They did so lawlessly. They usurped power. They called early May 25 elections.

Yanukovych justifiably responded:

"I am not planning to leave the country. I am the legitimate president and I am not going to resign."

"I'm trying to do everything so that there won’t be bloodshed. Now of the people who are close to me."

"I am doing everything to bring order the country. We made all steps to stabilize the political situation in the country, but it happened the way it happened."

"I came to Kharkov late last night. I wanted to take part in the session of deputies. But it turned out that I could not go because I have to be connected all the time."

"I am trying to protect people who are chased by bandits in the places where they live and work."

Parliament speaker Volodymyr "Rybak resigned because he was beaten up. His car was attacked. He asked me to take him away and so I did. I have sent him for treatment to Donetsk."

Nanukovych is in Kharkiv. It's Ukraine's second largest city. It's near Russia's border. He arrived late Friday night.

His chief of staff, Andriy Klyuyev, needs protection, he said. Kiev resembles "Nazi occupation" ruthlessness, he added.

"The Communist Party is under restriction. My car was shot at, but I am not afraid for my life. I am afraid for my country. I will stay in Ukraine and try to stop the criminals."

"Deputies leave the Party of Regions under pressure. Some just cannot go through this. They are afraid for their families."

They're "traitors. I don’t want to talk about this. I don’t want to name their last names. Let it be on them."

"The party has lived through such times already in 2005 and 2004, when around 200,000 left the party, but later 600,000 joined the party."

"I think that the situation will repeat now. Even if 600,000 leave the party now, there are 1.5 million people" remaining.

"The party is healthy. We see it as the repeat of history when in the 1930s, Nazis coming to power were banning parties."

"I see this as the same. They ban Communists." Ruling Party of Regions houses and offices were set on fire. "More than 200 offices were burned."

"All these decisions voted in parliament are now illegal. They should hear this from me, I will not sign anything with the bandits that terrorize the whole country."

"All the international mediators I worked with gave me guarantees of safety. Now I will see how they are going to fulfill their guarantees."

"Everything that is going on today is mostly vandalism and banditry and state upheaval."

"What will I do next? I'll do everything to protect my country from separatism and will do everything to stop the bloodshed."

"I don't know how yet, but today I met many people and asked their advice."

"Now I will go to the eastern and southern parts of the country where people are less dangerous still. I want to find an answer about what will we do next in our country."

On February 22, Itar Tass said "Foreign agents spent over billion" to oust Yanykovych. Coup d'etat plotting isn't cheap.

Itar Tass quoted Party of Regions deputy Vadim Kolesnichenko, saying:

“It took years to prepare the situation in Ukraine. Foreign agents of influence invested over 10 billion dollars in the coup d’etat and in agents, who work in the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's parliament) under the cover of non-governmental organisations."

He blamed Washington and EU partners for wanting Yanukovych ousted.

"Today’s events in Ukraine are a coup d’etat. Deputies were threatened, and very often their families are hostages."

"The country needs changes. Every region should develop proportionately with the contribution to the country's economy."

Russian political analyst Fyodor Lukianov said Yanukovych "no longer expects a pleasant outcome to this situation."

He left Kiev for his safety. He's a marked man. His life is in danger.

Francis Boyle compared what's ongoing to a Nazi "Brownshirt revolution." Fascist violence defines it.

Controlling Ukraine is a longtime Washington objective, he explained. "(T)he EU (is a subservient) anteroom to (US-controlled) NATO."

What's ongoing is the destruction "of Ukraine as a state." It's a "very dangerous situation," Boyle stressed.

Russia calls Ukraine its cradle of civilization. It's strategically important. Putin won't abandon it to America.

Especially the Crimea. It's home to Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

In Ukraine's southeast, local council deputies said they're trying to restore constitutional order. Area officials said:

"We, the local authorities of all levels, the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Sevastopol region decided (to ensure) the rights of citizens on their territory."

Thousands assembled in Kharkov. Spokespersons announced a number of measures they want local authorities to take.

They want them to assume full responsibility for all decision-making in their respective regions. They want them to ignore whatever Kiev coup plotters mandate.

They want local authority circumventing them until constitutional order is restored. They called coup d'etat legislation passed illegitimate.

They encouraged Ukrainians to form local militias. They're needed to protect public order.

Thousands of local council deputies assembled in Kharkov's Sport Palace. Over 10,000 people came to hear what went on.

Regional Governor Mikhail Dobkin said deputies came to save Ukraine. They oppose forming a separate country.

Kharkov administration head Gennady Kernes called the gathering "an attempt by qualified deputies from the east of the country to stabilize the situation."

"My colleagues and I have been personally threatened. But today we have gathered to change the situation. We will not give in. We will fight till the end."

Party of Regions deputy Vadim Kolesnichenko said he, others and their families were threatened.

No one's safe from America's long arm. CIA operatives infest Ukraine. On February 20, Before It's News (BIN) headlined "CIA Agent Captured in Ukraine Helping Ukrainian Protesters."

BIN was sent a video requesting it "publish this information immediately." It called it "MORE PROOF" that Obama instigated a coup against Ukraine's democratically elected government.

The agent captured is part of CIA's Special Activities Division (SAD). It's part of CIA's National Clandestine Service (NCS).

It's responsible for "special (covert) operations." It specializes in destabilizing governments, assassinating foreign leaders or toppling them by coup d'etat.

SAD has two separate groups. SAD/SOG (Special Operations Group) collects intelligence in hostile countries and regions.

It deals in high threat military or intelligence operations. They're ones Washington wants its involvement in kept secret.

Operatives carry no identification. Their affiliation is concealed. They wear no obvious clothing.

Their missions are top secret. If caught they're on their own. Washington maintains plausible deniability of their activities.

"SOG is generally considered the most secretive special operation force in the United States," said BIN.

Operatives come from "Delta Force, DEVGRU and ISA, as well as other United States special operations forces, such as USNSWC, MARSOC, USASF and 24th STS."

Their missions seek to advance America's imperium. They're illegal by any standard. They operate against Assad's government in Syria.

They're actively involved in Obama's plot to control Ukraine. Nothing too lawless is out of bounds to achieve US objectives.

Rogue states operate this way. America exceeds the worst in world history. Obama's waging war on freedom.

He wants it eliminated altogether. He wants fascist extremism replacing it. He wants unchallenged global dominance.

He's ravaging one country after another to achieve it. The only solution is nonviolent democratic revolution. People are empowered to act. It's high time they did so in time.
