Translated from Russian by J. Hawk
Arseniy Yatsenyuk said during an interview with a German TV channel that he “will not permit Russia to march all over Germany, as it did during World War II”.
“We all very well remember the Soviet invasion of Ukraine and Germany, and we have to avoid it”, emphasized the Ukrainian prime minister.
Yatsenyuk’s words received varying interpretations both in the West and in Russia. His speech forced many to wonder what the prime minister was doing during his history lessons.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk called the liberation of Europe from Nazism “Russian aggression” committed against both Nazi Germany and Ukraine.
Moreover, during his meeting with Angela Merkel, Yatsenyuk said that the recent hacker attacks against the Bundestag were perpetrated by Russian intelligence services.
Merkel and government web sites were attacked prior to Yatsenyuk’s visit to Berlin. The Ukrainian “Cyber Berkut” group claimed responsibility for launching them.
Given this performance, Yatsenyuk reveals himself to be totally out of his depth as a Prime Minister. While it may be acceptable and even praiseworthy to worship Nazis in Ukraine these days, this is (still and hopefully forever) a taboo subject in Germany and most of Europe. Yatsenyuk clearly did not understand this, otherwise he would not have implicitly sided himself with Hitler. Not to mention that while in Eastern European countries people may complain about Soviet policies during and following World War II, rather fewer would prefer that the Nazis had won World War II. But apparently the Prime Minister of Ukraine does.
Clearly the Western media cannot sugar coat the Ukrainian government much longer. MSM claims that the Right Sector or Svoboda did not go through to the Ukrainian parliament don’t hide the fact that the Prime Minister himself proclaims his neo-Nazi ideology, and that the entire country is celebrating Nazi collaborators as national heores, holding neo-Nazi torch-light parades in the capital, abolishing the Soviet Victory day over the Nazi Germany and turning it into “a day of memory”, in fact a day the Ukrainian nationalists from SS division Galicina lost the fight against the Red Army along with Hitler.
