"Masks of the Revolution": after the final credits

50
1 February, the documentary of Paul Moreira’s “The Mask of the Revolution” was shown on the French TV channel Canal +. The next day, the Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoly Matios declared the Right Sector illegal armed group with the following wording: “According to all legal constructions, features and according to the Ukrainian constitution, the Right Sector (banned in the Russian Federation) organization is, if dry, legal language illegal armed formation on the territory of the state ". So here! It is difficult to say whether it was a coordinated attack, or the Kiev authorities are trying in this way to disown frank Nazis shown in the film, but the fact remains..




By and large, the regime should have done this a long time ago. The Right Sector has always been on the slippery boundary between ideological fighters and a purely criminal group. Both that, and another represents for management a threat, and till now "to merge" fighters was hindered, apparently, by the CIA, which, according to evidence, supervises extremists on the territory of Ukraine.

By the way, the same 2 of February "Right Sector" accepted the challenge and proclaimed that it was not going to legalize itself under the current government.

“We expressly declare that Poroshenko’s power is a regime of internal occupation. And trying to somehow be legalized in the internal occupation mode is absolutely not what interests us, ”said a spokesman for the group, Artem Skoropadsky.

How this confrontation will end is difficult to say. The official authorities have the levers to defeat the Right Sector, but the radicals are able to deliver a lot of problems, even to the real attempt to seize power. Especially if they manage to enlist the support of influential circles in Washington, as opposed to the forces that now support Poroshenko.

With all the visible disturbance, what is happening is quite beneficial to the current government. They needed the militants during the period of seizure of control over the country: first on the Maidan, and then on the fronts of the east. Moreover, on the Maidan, the “Right Sector” did not at all overthrow Yanukovych, but merely provided an aggressive crowd on the streets, which served as a cover for the coup. In the southeastern regions and in the parts of the Ukrainian Armed Forces that were demoralized at that time, the militants performed exclusively punitive functions, slowly rushing into real clashes.

In general, the film about the "revolution" and the participation of extremists in it came out quite toothless. For obvious reasons, only a small part of all the crimes of the latter-day heroes is mentioned in it. To count now that the French suddenly opened their eyes, and they suddenly became allies of Russia, because in the present realities France remains an absolutely Russophobic country, absolutely naive. Like Germany, by the way.

Most likely, this television stuffing is intended to solve a number of purely tactical tasks within Ukraine. The regime is hinted that he should get rid of the most odious figures of the “revolution” as soon as possible, who occasionally and now appear in a public field, spoiling the image of the young “democracy” with a frankly Nazi flavor.

The moment is selected very well. In Kiev, the antics of the “Right Sector” and similar organizations have long stood across the throat. The benefits of unruly militants are less and less, and the problems - more and more. The claims of the radicals to their own part of the economy and, more importantly, the authorities, are becoming more and more brazen. At one point, they may even seize all power under the slogan that the oligarchs not only led the country to economic collapse, but also sabotage the war with Donbas and Russia. True, the official authorities may not have enough forces to eliminate extremists. Two years of civil war allowed many detachments to arm and strengthen.

For Russia and the besieged Donbass, the situation does not change fundamentally: the two forces that are now participating in the battle for Kiev are equally hostile for us, no matter what they say about the “partnership” from the stands of various kinds of figures. This fact must simply be taken as an axiom and be built on the basis of it all subsequent strategies. And the fate of the Right Sector itself does not play any role here.

      It’s just that the owners of Poroshenko pointed out that he would have put out a little bit openly nationalist groups, and then, against the background of their antics, it’s very difficult to explain to Europeans about a democratic and prosperous nenko, where human rights are paramount! laughing

        Of course, those who, right in the wake of the events of the coup, completely saw what was happening in Kiev, including the House of Trade Unions in Odessa, many of the most frightening shots were definitely not included in the film “Masks of Revolution”. But still, this film broke through the information blockade in France for a multimillion-dollar audience of viewers about the events of those days. The French still received reliable information about events in Ukraine.
        I have already seen this film. Those who wish can watch it.
        True, I do not know, this is the whole film shown by the author in France, or only part of it.

        Simply "the Moor has done his job, the Moor can go away." The "Right Sector" has fulfilled its "historical" task, now, according to Kiev, these "revolutionaries" should be pushed aside and the further, the better (and it is best to multiply by zero), because by their actions they compromise the current (already bloody) the Poroshenko regime, directly testifying to the existence of links between the country's power structures 404 and the neo-Nazis.
        The “Right Sector” has always been on the slippery border between ideological fighters and a purely criminal group.

        - in my opinion, in this little respectable organization banned in Russia (more precisely an organized criminal group - an organized criminal group) they have always successfully combined "Nazi ideology" and outright criminality. He is also a bandit in Africa, i.e. in / in Ukraine a bandit, no matter what clothes he dresses up.
        I have the honor.

        However, the Frenchman did his job, it seems to me - before the "Masks of the Revolution" the ratio of positive and negative comments in relation to Russia in France was about 50 to 50. Now I think that the number of positive comments will rise sharply ... winked

    This is how one should be a state in order not only not to notice the PS for many years, but also to rely on it when overthrowing the legitimate authority and in the war against its people. Yeah, now the PS will take it under the hood and dissolve itself to the joy of Poroshenko and the prosecutor. They still have time to break the horns and spoil the blood. And we will observe from the side how PS and power will tear each other's throats.

    It is extremely naive to believe that two or three "cartoons" can break the Russophobia of Europe, which has been winding up for centuries.

      I agree. You need to be more careful with words.

      With regard to the film, I get the impression that the French showed it on Canal + with an eye to their own internal political struggle. The French man in the street does not care deeply about the Ukrainians, but the socialists (in view of the upcoming pre-election struggle with the National Front led by Marine Le Pen) the idea of ​​projecting the "exploits of the hochlofascists" on the aspirations of their own right looks very tempting. In addition, the "peacemaker" Hollande in the reflected light looks almost like a fiery fighter against "world evil".

    “Apart from me, no one speaks of 45 who died during the fire in Odessa provoked by Ukrainian nationalists with Molotov cocktails,” Moreira quoted RT. “After a short search, I realized that what happened in Odessa underwent some sort of self-censorship, that is, they mentioned the event, but never investigated it. As if something was bothering them. Probably that the victims were Russians", - wrote the French documentary on his blog on the portal of the publication Mediapart".
    Judging by the statements, the person is apparently honest.
    Nevertheless, it would be interesting to know, and who bothered him to deal with this topic? It cannot be that the appearance of such a film is possible in France without the go-ahead of the relevant structures. They gave the nod, and someone went to Moreira, interested in the idea.
    From here the conclusion, which is still preliminary, "at least the PS will have problems in the near future." A new western multi-route has begun, the dice are thrown. We will see.

    In the "enlightened" West, little is done without the approval of the State Department. This is a real stuffing of information in order to prepare the layman for a new round of tension in Ukraine. Some will be cleaned up, others will be promoted, the State Department and the CIA, as always, will lead, since there are no independent political forces in Ukraine. There were many shouts that the United States was dumping Ukraine, they were overjoyed early. The Ukrainian map is not yet fully played, and a lot of blood will be shed. The West has invested too much in the "Ukraine" project, and it will still implement its plans.
