Right-wing extremists condemned in Charlottesville, funded and armed in Ukraine and Syria

Having backed a right-wing coup in the Ukraine and right-wing terror groups disguised as “moderate rebels” in Syria, U.S. leaders now confront rising right-wing terror at home. They duly condemn it, but seem blind both to their own hypocrisy and to the domestic reverberations of their cynical foreign policies.

Part 2 - The U.S.-backed fascist-nationalist takeover of Ukraine

Nowhere in recent years has U.S. political support for right-wing fascists, and even neo-Nazis, been more florid than in Ukraine. In 2014, after the successful ouster of the country’s democratically-elected president in what leaked phone calls later confirmed was a U.S.-backed coup, Ukraine came under the rule of a new administration led by billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko. Despite the U.S.’ assertion that the change in Ukraine’s government in 2014 was not a coup, Poroshenko himself has labeled it as such.

Poroshenko’s administration contained several high-level officials with direct links to neo-fascist groups. As FAIR reported in 2014:

The new deputy prime minister, Oleksandr Sych, is from Svoboda; National Security Secretary Andriy Parubiy is a co-founder of the neo-Nazi Social-National Party, Svoboda’s earlier incarnation; the deputy secretary for National Security is Dmytro Yarosh, the head of Right Sector. Chief prosecutor Oleh Makhnitsky is another Svoboda member, as are the ministers for Agriculture and Ecology.

Svoboda, in particular, is undeniably fascist. Their leaders consistently make anti-semitic and racist statements and they have called for those opposing their brand of ultra-nationalism, whom they derogatorily label “Ukrainophobes,” to be criminally prosecuted. Ukraine’s Right Sector, which also boasts high-ranking officials in the Kiev-based government, is an openly neo-Nazi militia known for their skinhead style of dress and glorification of street violence.

Although the coup gave unprecedented power to Svoboda and its ilk, U.S. politicians – instead of condemning the fascist nationalists that had taken over Ukraine – openly supported them. They exhibited no qualms about putting them into power despite that fact that the far-right is a tiny fraction of the Ukrainian electorate.

Indeed, Sen. John McCain, who was quick to condemn such groups in Charlottesville, shared a stage, in the early days of the coup, with Oleh Tyahnybok, the leader of Svoboda, who once called for the liberation of Ukraine from the “Muscovite-Jewish mafia.”

McCain’s appearance was followed by a more discreet visit made by then-director of the CIA John Brennan to Kiev. In addition, the leaked recording of a phone call made at the time between Victoria Nuland, then-assistant Secretary of State, and Geoffrey Pyatt, the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, revealed that the U.S. effectively selected who would replace Ukraine’s deposed president Viktor Yanukovych.

In addition, every Senator named above, along with the Obama administration, pushed to fund the new, openly fascist regime, to the tune of $1.3 billion in 2014 alone. Even as evidence has emerged that the Ukrainian government has been actively targeting ethnic minorities, the U.S. political establishment – now with Donald Trump at the helm – continues to openly support the fascist government in Kiev.
