When Western Media Saw Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis
By Robert Parry, Consortium News – March 06, 2022
Exclusive: Throughout the Ukraine crisis, the U.S. State Department and mainstream media have downplayed the role of neo-Nazis in the U.S.-backed Kiev regime, an inconvenient truth that is surfacing again as right-wing storm troopers fly neo-Nazi banners as they attack in the east, Robert Parry reports.
The U.S. government and media think Nazis in Ukraine are a myth. It wasn’t always the case, as Robert Parry reported in 2015.

It's borderline-amusing that the entire bipartisan US political class spent years proclaiming that the real leader of Venezuela is "President Juan Guaidó," but the minute they need something, that's instantly abandoned for: "President Maduro, we'd like to meet with you." https://t.co/Ydyemv3bGl

PETER HITCHENS: One glorious day in Sevastopol 12 years ago, I saw what was coming. That’s why I won’t join this carnival of hypocrisy
By Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail – March 05, 2022
In a country crammed with Russians, they were trying to make Russian a second-class language. Russians who had lived there happily for decades were pressured to take Ukrainian citizenship and adopt Ukrainian versions of their Christian names. The schools were promoting a national hero, Stepan Bandera, who Russians strongly disliked and regarded as a terrorist. And they were teaching history which often had an anti-Russian tinge. Quite a few people told me they felt put upon by these policies. Why couldn’t they just be left alone?

Ukraine’s far-right children’s camp: ‘I want to bring up a warrior’
September 05, 2017
In Ukraine, the far-right Azov militia is fighting on the frontline – and running a summer camp for children. The Guardian visited the camp and followed 16-year-old Anton through his experiences. Is Azov really a modern Hitler Youth organisation, or is it trying to prepare young Ukrainians for the tough reality that awaits them?
There are so many relevant facts that run counter to the mandated narrative for which no space exists now. But it's always the same cycle with wars: it takes weeks, usually months, sometimes years for the mob inebriation to wear off, and only then does sobriety and regret emerge. https://t.co/kfLsv5wJHb
