Belated enlightenment? Forty US congressmen accuse Azov of terrorism

US congressmen demanded that the US State Department recognize the Ukrainian armed group Azov as a terrorist organization. The document, signed by forty representatives of the US Congress, shocked many. But there is little surprising in it - just the Americans are gradually realizing which monster they themselves created more than five years ago in Ukraine.

Ukrainian syndrome on American soil

Not so long ago, the FBI arrested someone Jarrett William Smith. He was detained for attempting to attack an information center. Smith was about to attack him with a makeshift bomb, as well as kill several left-wing activists and attempt to assassinate US presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke.

American detectives managed to open Smith's connections with a certain Craig Lang. This 29-year-old citizen, along with his 22-year-old comrade Alex Zwifelhofer, was arrested in September 2019 for robbery and murder of a married couple of Serafin and Dina Lorenzo. The unfortunate people were attacked by criminals in a parking lot, and Lang and Zwilhofer needed money to travel to Venezuela - there both young men were going to join the opposition.

Belated enlightenment? Forty US congressmen accuse Azov of terrorism

Both Lang and Zwilhofer, despite their young years, are militants with experience. First, they served in the American army, and then fought in Ukraine - they were volunteers in the armed forces of the Right Sector manned by Ukrainian Nazis (banned in the Russian Federation). Smith, who was detained by FBI officers, as it turned out, turned to Lang for assistance in sending him to Ukraine.

Among the American ultra-right, participation in the hostilities in the Donbass on the side of Kiev has long been very attractive. Professional mercenaries and convinced Russophobes, criminals and ideological Nazis - who just do not go to the Donbass from the USA. And, as we see, returning to their homeland, they commit new crimes - this time against the Americans themselves.

The desire of Lang and Zwilhofer to “fight for a just cause” in Venezuela cost the lives of the spouses Lorenzo. And Smith was even about to kill the US presidential candidate. And these are far from the only crimes committed or planned by American citizens with “Ukrainian experience”.

One of the authors of the petition of forty congressmen, Max Rose, as one of the main arguments for the need to classify the Azov battalion as a terrorist organization, led the recent tragedy in the New Zealand city of Christchurch. The Australian citizen who arranged it, Brenton Tarrant, allegedly called himself a member of Azov. In fact, the congressman is slightly exaggerating, as Tarrant mentioned only that he was in Ukraine. Of course, he most likely met with Ukrainian neo-Nazis there.

Of course, there are close ties between Ukrainian and American neo-Nazi groups. It was during the war in the Donbass that they became stronger, although they were established much earlier. Even during the years of the Cold War, American and British intelligence services zealously nurtured and fueled Ukrainian nationalism.

Americans raised a threat to themselves

During the confrontation, the US and the USSR in Washington viewed Ukrainian nationalists as natural allies in the struggle against the socialist camp. It was in the United States and Canada that many prominent Banderaites, including war criminals, took refuge. In the post-Soviet period, nationalist forces in Ukraine enjoyed the unconditional support of the West also solely because of their anti-Russian orientation.

If in the same Great Britain or Germany for any anti-Semitic statement you can encounter quite serious problems, then the European Nazis and their patrons forgave everything to Ukrainian Nazis - anti-Semitic attacks, swastikas on banners and emblems, and criminal crimes against civilians. And here is the result - the monster has grown.

Actually, everything went according to the same scenario as took place in the Middle East and Afghanistan. For decades, British and American intelligence services have nurtured Islamic fundamentalists, seeing them as the main alternative to pro-Soviet secular Arab nationalists.

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria, the militants in Algeria, the Mujahideen in Afghanistan - all these forces declared their hatred of the West, but the United States also turned a blind eye to these slogans, believing that the main task is to rally Islamists against the Soviet Union and its growing influence in the Middle East.

What did the USA and Western Europe get as a result? Terrorist acts, a bottomless funnel of budget spending on wars in the Middle East countries, on the maintenance of the Afghan, Iraqi and other armies. But the most, of course, the main consequence of this support of Islamic fundamentalism is the further destabilization of the situation in Asia and Africa, combined with the strengthening of radical groups and the growth of uncontrolled migration to the Western countries themselves.

The United States and its NATO allies sought to incite radicals from Afghanistan and other Islamic countries against the USSR, and then against Russia, but in the end, Algerian, Afghan, Somali, Libyan, Syrian militants ended up on the streets of Berlin and Paris, New York and London. And who turned to terrorist acts, and who simply to criminal offenses against the local population.

We see the exact same situation with the Ukrainian radicals. The war in Donbass unleashed not without US participation has now come to American soil, albeit so far in the form of criminal offenses committed by "frostbitten" fighters - ATO veterans.

By the way, in the case of radicals from the Middle East, the American leadership ultimately came to the realization of the need to create a global front to fight terrorism. Osama bin Laden, who was "created" by the American special services themselves, eventually turned into "1 terrorist and enemy of the United States." But some fifteen years before the attacks of September 11, Osama bin Laden was an American ally, he fought against the Soviet troops in Afghanistan.

For the radicals, be it Afghan Mujahideen or Ukrainian Nazis, the American establishment, with its predominance of people of known nationality, with globalist values ​​and neglect of the world of tradition, will never be their own. And forty American congressmen finally realized this. And they were horrified at the work of their hands (maybe not quite their own, but still the responsibility for what is happening in Ukraine lies with almost the entire American establishment, who forgot about their own declared principles for the sake of hatred of Russia, and allowed outright Nazis and crooks to seize power in Kiev and shed a lot of blood in the Donbass).

Reaction in Ukraine

In Kiev, the statement of the American congressmen, of course, caused a storm of indignation. The Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov personally went to Mariupol to support the fighters of the Azov Regiment. This is an unsinkable figure of modern Ukrainian politics. Even Vladimir Zelensky could not free himself from the presence of Arsen Avakov, who at one time had a conflict with both Petro Poroshenko and Mikhail Saakashvili, and everything got away with it.

It would seem that the Baku Armenian Avakov, who supports the Ukrainian Nazis, looks no less ridiculous than the American politicians of Jewish origin, who sympathize with Bandera in Kiev. But in fact, Avakov’s step should be taken seriously: with his trip to the location of Azov, he showed that they can count on the patronage of more influential forces. Since Avakov would hardly have gone to support his beloved Nazis, had he not been sure that his patrons would approve of his actions across the ocean.

The command of the Azov regiment published on its official resource an answer to the position of American congressmen, calling it an information attack on the national security of the Ukrainian state. The regiment emphasized that the formation was always subordinate to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and should not be called Nazi, since it is state-owned and its soldiers are servicemen of the National Guard of Ukraine.

But it is unlikely that American congressmen - democrats, and even 40 people at once, would suddenly fall under the influence of Russia and would take part in some information attacks on Ukraine. This is well understood in Kiev and trying to explain the actions of congressmen in a more logical way.

So, the appeal of American politicians associated with the upcoming elections. Allegedly, representatives of the US Democratic Party do not want to lose the support of a large Jewish electorate and pay attention to important problems for American Jews, including the situation with anti-Semitism in Ukraine.

However, it is now completely unprofitable for Donald Trump to "stand up" to defend Ukrainian Nazis. Firstly, he never showed any particular sympathy for modern Ukraine and the Kiev regime, Maidan was not his project, although Trump, due to his presidential duties, was forced to continue American policy towards Kiev.

Secondly, Trump always positions himself as a supporter of tough measures in the fight against terrorism, and he closely associates terrorism with illegal migration. Therefore, the US State Department may well satisfy the request of congressmen and recognize "Azov" as a terrorist organization. Trump is unlikely to object to such a decision.

However, if the position of forty congressmen will not only be taken into account in the State Department, but will entail some real action, then the position of Arsen Avakov as the main patron of Azov will be dealt a serious blow. Indeed, if “Azov” is recognized as a terrorist organization and its main characters will also be considered terrorists, with all the ensuing consequences. At least in this case, the only reasonable way out for the Kiev regime would be to sacrifice Azov in order to maintain a good mine in a bad game.

True, while the Ukrainian authorities are trying by all means to protect the "beloved brainchild" of Euromaidan. Whether they will succeed in this is still unknown. But before November 4, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo must give an answer to the congressmen and report on the position of the State Department.

    Forty US congressmen accuse Azov of terrorism
    Kiev is really shocked by such a "stab in the back" from someone who is with "the whole world" with them, therefore the reaction of nationalists and their owners is predictable. But it is one thing to give birth to a document, and it is another to recognize it as a terrorist organization with all the ensuing consequences. If all this time they supported and armed the state in which terrorist units officially exist, then it turns out they helped the terrorists. Will American politicians be willing to admit this? Great doubts.

      hi , Gennady.
      Recently, such "blows", as from the horn. The association with NATO and the EU has been vetoed; the Americans, again, with the initiative to recognize the "basics" as terrorists; Zeman invited Crimeans to celebrate; Benelux opened representative offices of LDNR (non-governmental, humanitarian); the Chinese refused to cooperate; the strain to oppose the SP-2 went to dust ... Not to mention the media responses to the hetman's shameful behavior on the "arrow" with the Nazis. The bruises on the back cannot be counted.

    Hitler's SS divisions were also subordinate to the Wehrmacht General Staff, but this does not mean that they obeyed him, just as the Azov fascists do not really obey the General Staff, and the president is openly sent somewhere where Makar does not graze calves. The SS could not afford this in relation to Hitler. That's the difference.

    American congressmen were guided primarily by the data on 17 thousands of foreign fighters who participated in the Ukrainian illegal armed groups in the 2014-19 years in the Donbass civil war.

    In addition to two terrorists who are US citizens, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has detained three Ukrainians, former servicemen of the Azov regiment, who were trying to organize illegal arms trade on the territory of their country.

    Moreover, the beginning of the impeachment procedure of President Donald Trump, announced yesterday by the democratic majority of the lower house of the US Congress, is aimed primarily at obtaining judicial sanction for the interrogation of an interpreter of Ukrainian origin who translated the telephone conversation between Trump and Zelensky, during which the issue of collecting information about corruption actions was discussed in Ukraine, Joe Baidan, who at that time was the vice president of the United States.

    The initiated impeachment procedure is expected to end in zilch, as it should be supported by the upper house of the US Congress, in which the Republicans have the majority of votes. But the testimony of an ethnic Ukrainian officer is needed by the Democrats to publicly undermine the reputation of Trump, who has already announced his participation in the election for a new presidential term. The White House administration has officially banned its employees from giving testimony to the lower house of Congress commission - in order to overcome this ban, an impeachment procedure and an appropriate court decision are required.

    At the same time, an American Ukrainian officer has already given an interview to the press with the announcement of "the exposure of Donald Trump's crimes." Therefore, one can guess how Trump now relates to Ukraine and Ukrainians. bully

    All that is happening in the United States now is Trump's struggle with the Democrats. The Democrats are simply trying to hang as many dogs as possible on Trump-type: here he approved some of the US supplies to Ukraine, which went straight to the organizations that now need to be recognized as fascist-like another "speck" on Trump's uniform. Clan clash in the USA and nothing more. By the way, nothing prevents "Azov" if it is recognized as "terrorist-fascist" to disband and immediately form under a different name - "untainted" (or simply change the name) ... In short, worthless garbage, not news. ..

    This is not an epiphany. As the past shows, but the reality shows that their "epiphany" will come only when Russia again defeats fascism, the flag of Victoria over the new Reichstag. And the new tribunal, and many archival documents in which it is clearly and clearly visible that the "Western democratic business" helped Bandera in plans to destroy, dismember Russia, documents will suddenly disappear, knowledgeable Bandera suddenly die of heart attacks, deaths in car accidents. And only then will the Yankees petition for the punishment of the Nazi criminals and condemn fascism. But there is still a small discrepancy, namely, that in Russia (RF) there are uncles and aunts who would be glad to the "victory" of the fascists from the neighboring side, they will be very uncomfortable if overseas "partners" tell about them, using this as blackmail, "partners" can slip such a pig that the sanctions may seem ("pink ponies"). Therefore, before Victoria, it will be necessary to change the course, revive the ideology according to our best traditions, and have time to deal with economic crimes. And to allow officially, to return (strongly in our opinion) to the CONSTITUTION OF RUSSIA - THE IDEOLOGY OF THE RUSSIAN STATE. And if this happens, there is time, time, the "partners" will have time to build bases in Ochakovo, "feed" the Natsiks, for great sacrifices, because the Vatican Satanists need a bloody harvest, and without Victoria with tears in our eyes again, again , sad. I am not saying that all this will happen 100%, but the worst cases must be considered. Yes, Belarus has problems too. And there Kaliningrad, Poland, thirsting for the revival of the Commonwealth, Erdogan (did not recognize Crimea) - the Ottoman Empire. China, remembering its identity, and very eager for its revenge. The Fergana Valley is from there radical Islamists can come or have already come to patch roofs, build fences in the Mother See. The sailors have such a rule. As I was told. If you know that there is danger, you must assume that you are much closer to danger than you really are. Just in case, so that the partners do not start "kinking" again, but we have a surprise.
