An Ukrainian stand-up humorist considers “funny” that Donbass children are living in basements and now “don’t need to go to the school”.

“I come with news from the DPR” (Donetsk People’s Republic), says a humorist from the Ukrainian show “Vecherniy Kvartal” (Evening’s neighborhood) who wears an uniform of Donbass resistance militia and an airborne stripped shirt, “we promoted the education’s reform, my child’s dream became a reality, now I don’t need to go to school”, then the public applauds. Let’s remember that it was common among the nazi to take pictures grinning while they hanged civilians. Similar and even worse atrocities were committed by the Japanese forces against Chineses and another Asian peoples considered to be inferior, and the members of such forces loved to grin during such photos. In Abu Graib prisons American torturers used to take pictures smiling and grinning while torturing prisoners.

In Ukraine, many children have no basic Human Rights, such as the right to education, due to the intense artillery shells that fall over civilian zones. According to a Russian woman responsible for helping children with humanitarian aid, identified as “Svetlana”, one of the hardest faces of war are the children that, “instead of walking around with their parents and eat some ice cream with their friends are now living in basements”, in order to avoid artillery shells shot by pro-Kiev troops, including paramilitary units formed by neonazi and mercenaries.

Actually, in the “peaceful” Ukraine, beyond it’s Eastern borders, children receive a curious education. As reported by the British newspaper Dailymail, in Ukraine, children are being trained to kill Russians in training camps organized by Azov, a paramilitary unit composed by neonazi. Several videos available at internet show how children appear hailing while singing songs demanding the killing of Russians (more precisely, whatever they consider to be Russian). In one of them, two girls around 11 years old, display butcher knives and shout “Death to Moskalya” (Moskalya is a derogatory  term used against Russians).

Despite the fragile Minsk-2 agreement, several violations have been reported since the beginning of 2015, including the positioning of high caliber artillery pieces from Ukraine pro-Kiev troops close to the borders with the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Donetsk and Lugansk.

The suffering of civilians is a reality in Donbass and it’s legitimated by the Kiev authorities, including the president Petro Poroshenko. In a speech, available at internet, Poroshenko claims that “we (pro-Kiev Ukrainians) shall have a job, and they (Donbass inhabitants) shall have no job… we shall have peace and their children shall sit in basements”.

According to the United Nations, the war in Donbass, Eastern Ukraine, already killed more than 5.486 people, including 59 children, injured 12.927, including 153 babies. In almost one year, Kiev government killed around 5,5 thousand people of their own country, a country that they claim to have “unification”. Millions of Ukrainians left the country since the beginning of Maydan to Russia and thousands went to Western Europe. In cities like Saint Petersburg the Ukrainians are now the largest group of immigrants, bypassing the number of immigrants from Uzbekistan.

How long the international community, specially Europe, shall close their eyes before a genocide? Do they inspect genocides only when the targeted country is a foe of the United States or European Union? Looks like some Human Rights organizations have their own understanding of who is really Human. This reality needs to be changed!

This question may sound like childish, specially if we take in account geography matters. However, that’s much more than a mere geography question, it’s a matter of values and politics. Since the first “Orange Revolution” in 2004, or to be more accurate, since the very first days of the so called Ukrainian nationalism, the defenders of an independent state in Ukraine claimed that this country, born from Russia, is a “European state” opposed to the evil “Asian Horde” presented by Russia, according to their ideas.

According to the speech of Nestor Pronyuk, member of SNPU, political party today called Svoboda (Liberty), one of the parties that rule Ukraine after Maydan, considered the first fascist organization registered in independent state of Ukraine, “Europe ends where Russian language and culture arises”. That was said during the V Congress of SNPU (Social-National Party of Ukraine) and was quoted by the Ukrainian magazine Orientiry, magazine of Svoboda party on political issues, in 1999.

One of the
One of the “nationalist” marches in Ukraine after Euromaydan, in reality a march of neonazi

Therefore, following the ideology of Ukrainian neonazi, during the so called Euromaydan, in Kiev, in 2014, many jumped and shouted that “Ukraina, tse Evropa” (Ukraine is Europe), not the “Mongoloid, Asiatic, backwards and barbaric state of Russia”, as they claim. It must be stated that according to Ukrainian nationalists, as well as the European neonazi, the Russian people (like Sharapova or Emelyanenko) have no European features, but Asian (like the princess Masako from Japan or the Chinese actor Jackie Chan), a speech created to justify russophobe policies from European states and deny any solidarity of Western Europeans with Russian people.

It happens that the ideology of the so called “Last Forepost of Europe before Asia”, that is, Ukraine, has nothing in common with Western European principles of Human Rights and Human Dignity (Menschenwürde). The new Ukrainian state was born under a putsch and theories of racial supremacy, claiming that Russians are a “non humans”, as stated by the prime-minister Yatsenyuk in a famous political speech. Such Ukraine faces no problem at all with neonazi organizations organizing great marches and demonstrations in front of public buildings and Russian embassies. Is Ukraine really Europe?

In Germany, a citizen called Andreas M., 57, decided to perform a Nazi salute before a demonstration of refugees in Germany. He did not expect that behind him stood a cop, who took him under arrest. Now Mr. Andreas M. faces the possibility of being jailed for 3 years. So, the question must be done again, is Ukraine really Europe?

It was more than a year ago that in the Trade Union House in Odessa a massacre took place. Anti-Maidan protesters who were demonstrating against the new coup government were driven into the Union House by Ukrainian nationalists and burned alive. The exact number of victims is yet unknown. It is estimated that at least 116 people were killed.

To date, the victims and their families aren’t granted peace; Ukrainian nazis keep attacking them.

After several attacks during the year, it now happened again, that on August 2nd, neo-Nazis stormed a memorial to the victims of the Odessa massacre.
Led by Mark Gordienko and Ewgenij Rezwuschkin the Nazis came to the Union House before the scheduled start of the commemoration. The Ukrainian Nazis attacked the citizens of Odessa that wore black balloons as a sign of mourning for the murdered. Reprisals and repression of dissidents happen everyday in Ukraine.
