And the Kiev government today is called the junta, and it called itself nationalistic. The details of these civil wars, of course, differ, but the essence of what is happening is the same: the military-nationalist junta against the republic.
In Spain in 1936, as in Ukraine in February 2014, it all started with a nationalist coup against legitimate authority. “A cloudless sky over all of Spain!” - the famous password of that Spanish coup turned into Hitler’s raids aviation, today the same "cloudless sky" over New Russia ... Spanish nationalists were immediately supported by fascist Germany and Italy, while European democracies in relation to the Spanish democrats suddenly began to pursue a policy of hostile "non-interference".
With the military support of Hitler and Mussolini, under the nationalist banners and slogans similar to those of today's Ukrainian Bandera, the Franks attacked the Republican Madrid. From the rear of the Republicans attacked the "fifth column". Madrid was defended by the then Republican militia, international anti-fascist brigades and volunteers from Soviet Russia. How it all repeats!
Only Soviet Russia at the state level provided material and military assistance to Republican Spain in order to postpone the fascist attack on themselves, then they wrote about it openly. And today, only Russia and anti-fascist foreign organizations are helping New Russia to postpone the general offensive of the fascist and friendly countries to Russia.
The fascists Franco called themselves nationalists and patriots, healthy national forces, national troops ... At the final stage of the war, England and France openly supported these forces, believed them. And the touching unity of European democracy and fascism was formed! Today we see him again ...
Everything was repeated literally before our eyes: the fascist coup in Kiev under the banner of the “national revolution”, it was immediately recognized and supported by Western democracies and ... neo-Nazi organizations in Europe and America: again we see the touching unity of Western democracy and fascists!
Recognizing the Bandera fascists, the Western "democracies" support them as if on "legal grounds" - after all, they have seized power in Kiev! - and supporters of the federalization of Ukraine, that is, analogues of Spanish Republicans, were called "terrorists", "militants". Perhaps there is a European tradition traced here: the Nazis called the partisans "terrorists"! Russia, on the other hand, “democracies,” declared sanctions and threatened destabilization and even war.
As well as Republican Spain, the international anti-fascist brigades support Novorossia, a detachment of Serbian volunteers has just arrived, and there are still Polish, Italian, French, Caucasian, and of course, Russian.
There are significant differences in the new fascist-Bandera coup. Blitzkrieg Kiev junta, the so-called "ATO", failed, he did not achieve a single strategic goal. Lugansk and Donetsk were shelled, but could not be surrounded, they could not cut off the republics from the border with Russia, successes in the form of capturing the cities of New Russia are local, because the war has a maneuverable character: they both took it and will give it away! And there is reason to hope that the spring of defense of Donbass, cowering, will begin to unclench, as in 1941, the spring of defense under Moscow opened.
The main material and mobilization resources of the Novorossiysk republics are concentrated in metropolitan agglomerations, the militia has not really used them. Therefore, the transition to the offensive of the militia is not only possible, but also inevitable, given that the Russian border is under its control, and the militia can receive critical assistance to them. Bandera junta is beating in propaganda hysteria, in anticipation of the collapse of the economy coming winter.
And Washington really will not help her: there are no such opportunities! The United States is stuck in Afghanistan, the troops will not be withdrawn from there - this is a kind of “hello” to strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was so happy that the USSR landed in the Afghan trap ... Now the Americans are sitting in it! Also under attack are American interests in Iraq, Libya, Syria - wherever they inherit. Western sanctions against Russia - this is the "help" of the junta, the whole ...
... Behind the back of the Spanish Republicans was the sea, so they were defeated, the republics of Novorossia have Russia, and this changes things very much! Therefore, although the war in the Donbass is very similar to the Spanish, its ending will be different: geography matters, and Russia today is different, stronger, nuclear missile. This time will be for sure: No pasaran!
