Kiev, Ukraine. A lot of American and Israeli Jews are having to wake up to an unpleasant fact, that a large number of officials inside the Kiev government are anti-semitic, support the Genocide in Donbass and would love to see every last Jew on earth exterminated. Strange talk in a country where both the President-Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister- Volodymyr Groysman themselves are Jews.
The latest in a series of highly public anti-semitic statements by leading figures in Ukraine, include remarks by a Ukrainian general with the country’s intelligence service or SBU, in which he openly called for the destruction of his country’s Jewish community.
In the post since removed from Facebook, Vasily Vovk – a general who holds a senior reserve rank with the SBU, wrote that Jews “aren’t Ukrainians and I will destroy you along with Ukrainian oligarch and Jewish lawmaker Vadim Rabinovych. I’m telling you one more time, go to hell, zhidi [kikes], the Ukrainian people have had it up to here with you.””Ukraine must be governed by Ukrainians,” he says.
During the past three years, particularly under the presidency of Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, himself of Jewish background, there have been repeated attempts to turn the leading figures of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) and its armed wing, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) into national heroes. As these Ukrainian organizations collaborated with the Nazi Germany, carrying out ethnic cleansing and mass murder on a massive scale, they are problematic symbols for an aspiring democracy with the suposed stated ambition to join the European Union.
In a more embarassing incident opposition politician Yulia Tymoshenko was forced to apologize after being filmed laughing at an anti-semitic comedy act at a gathering of her Fatherland party, and Volodymyr Viatrovych, director of the state-run Institution for National Memory accused Jewish activist Eduard Dolinsky of fabricating anti-semitic holocaust related incidents for money.
Ukrainian war hero, now political leader and future presedential contender- Nadiya Savchenko came under fire recently after saying during a television interview that Jews hold a disproportionate control over the levers of power in Ukraine.
Director Viatrovych is running a Ukrainian government, US taxpayer funded-public awareness campaign whitewashing the participation of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), a Ukrainian nationalist militia, in the Holocaust.
The Holocaust in Ukraine took place during the occupation of Ukraine by Nazi Germany. Between 1941 and 1945, approximately 3,000,000 Ukrainian and other non-Jewish victims were killed as part of Nazi extermination policies, along with between 800,000 to 950,000 Jews.
In 2015 the Ukrainian parliament passed a law prohibiting the denigration of the UPA and other groups which helped Nazi Germans during WWII kill millions of Jews across Europe as willing volunteers in the genocide.
Here recently, Ukraine made waves internationally when it announced it was opening a murder investigation into the killing of a member of UPA by a ninety four year old Jewish ex-KGB agent in the early 1950s.
Ukraine has not prosecuted any of its citizens for war crimes against Jews since the country gained its independence following the breakup of the Soviet Union.
Given the state sanctioned anti-semitism of the Poroshenko regime in Kiev, one must wonder how Benjamin Netanyahu is capable of visiting Ukraine, funding Ukraine or even having relations with the current neo Nazi government of Ukraine. What profit does a nation have when it supports the killers of its own people daily?
