“Ukrainians” of the new Kiev regime and Nazism: obvious parallels
Doctor historical Sci. Vardan Baghdasaryan in an interview with KM.RU analyzes the situation in Novorossia
From the statement that the regime in Ukraine is Nazi, it follows its illegitimacy
The masks from the Ukrainian regime are completely disrupted: filtration camps are being created in Ukraine. The parallels with German Nazism are obvious. The terminology itself - “filtration camp”, “filtration of the population” - is completely in Goebbels spirit.
The results of the Second World War led to a significant adjustment of the Westphalian model in the understanding of the absolute internal sovereignty of nation-states. The new model was based on the admissibility and even the need to interfere in the internal affairs of nation states, if it was a question of crimes against humanity, threats to peace.
The ideology of all the first decisions made in the post-war period indicated the existence of more significant values than the right of national sovereignty. The conclusion that was made following the results of the war was to demand that the international community resist such phenomena as Nazism (fascism) at the early stage of its inception.
From the statement that the regime in Ukraine is Nazi, it follows, firstly, its illegitimacy and, secondly, the moral right to intervene in other states to prevent further Nazi escalation.
Meanwhile, the obvious signs that fall under the definition of "crimes against humanity", in relation to what is happening in Ukraine, are obvious:
- “Forcible transfer of population”;
- “imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of the fundamental norms of international law”;
- “the persecution of any identifiable group or community for political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender ... or other reasons”;
- “enforced disappearance of people”;
- “other inhuman acts of a similar nature, consisting in intentionally causing great suffering, or serious bodily harm, or serious damage to mental or physical health” (Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court).
Russia, therefore, has the full moral right to intervene. This right arises, in particular, from its special position as a state that made the most important contribution to the victory over fascism and hence acts as the natural guarantor of the world order system established as a result of World War II. According to this principle, as is known, the representation of the five states is defined as permanent members of the UN Security Council.
The ideology of Nazism suggests that after the internal “sweeps” a phase of external expansion should begin. And the direction of this expansion is obvious.
In order to make sure that such threats exist, it is advisable to consider the geopolitical claims of Ukrainian nationalism. There is not a single neighboring country to which Ukrainian nationalists would not make territorial claims: in Slovakia there is the Prešov district, in Poland it belongs to that part of Polish Galicia and Kholm region, in Belarus it is Brest region, and often the entire Belarusian Polesie. But the greatest claims are addressed specifically to Russia.
Allegedly, "their own" and "subject to seizure" from Russia are considered Kursk, Belgorod, Voronezh, Rostov regions, Kuban and Stavropol. The leader of the "Right Sector" Dmitry Yarosh formulates these positions of Ukrainian nationalism very clearly.
Donbass epic is not yet complete, the decision for the Russian government
Meanwhile, Russia is more definitely taking the position of refusing to intervene directly, and then the militia, in fact, is doomed to defeat. Slavyansk has already fallen, a ring is being compressed around Lugansk and Donetsk. They say that the liberation struggle is a matter of the Donetsk citizens themselves. But could the South Slavs, for example, be freed from the power of Ottoman Turkey in the nineteenth century without direct military intervention by the Russian Empire? If such an intervention had not occurred, the very existence of the South Slavic ethnic groups would be a big question. Could the peoples of Eastern Europe be free from fascism without the Soviet army?
The very performance of Donbass against Ukrainian Nazism would not have been possible if the Donetsk people had not counted on Russia's help. The decisive “we don’t surrender” gave rise to corresponding hopes. The failure to provide assistance in this situation, in addition to the military defeat of New Russia, also means a moral defeat for Russia. Something similar has already happened in history. In the Gorbachev period, all those forces in the world who believed in the USSR, in the Soviet project, were left to their own devices.
For Eric Honecker, this ended in legal prosecution, for Mohammad Najibullah, the death penalty. In the Yeltsin period, the own army that fought in Chechnya was betrayed in the same way. Will this series continue? Donbass epic is not yet complete, the decision for the Russian government.
