Ukraine's Neo-Fascist Right Sector Leader Dmytro Yarosh to Run for President

Ukraine's leader of the far-right Pravy Sektor (Right Sector) paramilitary movement Dmytro Yarosh has announced his presidential bid in elections planned for 25 May.

The ultra-nationalist movement's chairman Andriy Tarasenko said that Right Sector will also become a political party.

"Dmytro Yarosh will run for president," he said. "We are preparing for a congress, at which the party will be renamed, and we will participate in the elections in Kyiv, the elections in all local councils, towns and villages."

"We remain the leaders of this revolution. We are mobilizing, we are preparing to react to foreign aggression," Tarasenko added, claiming that the movement was ready for a full-scale war with Russia.

4. I still wonder who set fire to a lot of other party offices

A number of Ukrainian party headquarters went up in flames across the country overnight. The offices belonged to a wide range of political parties, from the ruling Party of Regions to opposition ones. Golos Stolitsy has discussed these grim happenings with Ukrainian Communist MP Alexander Zubchevsky and opposition Udar's Vladimir Kurennoi.

A group of unidentified attackers set fire overnight to the office of Vitali Klitschko's Udar party office in Kryvyi Rih, while in Kharkiv damage was done to a building of the opposition party Svoboda. Meanwhile, in Lutsk fire was set to the offices of the Regions Party and the Communist party.

7. Scary beyond belief

Israel Envoy Meets With Ukraine 'Anti-Semite' Dmitry Yarosh
Right Sector Leader Praises Hitler Wartime Ally


Friends Like These: The Israeli ambassador to Ukraine has met with leader of neo-Nazi Right Sector, which staged this violent demonstration in October. getty images

By JTA
Published March 07, 2014.

Israel’s ambassador in Kiev, Reuven Din El, opened a hotline with a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist movement to “prevent provocations.”

...

In the meeting, “Dmitry Yarosh stressed that Right Sector will oppose all (racist) phenomena, especially anti-Semitism, with all legitimate means,” the embassy wrote on its website.

...

Last month he told the Ukrainian Pravda newspaper that his outfit shares many beliefs with the xenophobic Svoboda party and cooperates with it, but rejects the xenophobia displayed by Svoboda members and leaders.

“We have a lot of common positions on ideological issues, but there are big differences. For example, I do not understand racist elements and I do not adopt them,” he said.

...

The Simon Wiesenthal Center and other Jewish organizations have condemned the glorification in Ukraine of Bandera, whose troops are believed to have killed thousands of Jews when they were allies of the Nazis in 1941.

...

Svoboda lawmakers have regularly used the pejorative “zhyd,” which is equivalent to “kike,” to describe Jews. In response to protests from Jewish leaders, Svoboda argued “zhyd” was a correct and neutral, albeit archaic term.

Svoboda’s leader, Oleh Tyahnybok, has in the past referred to a “Moscow-Jewish mafia” which he said ruled Ukraine. Din El and Tyahnybok spoke in March 2013 in a meeting which the Israeli foreign ministry said was not coordinated with Jerusalem.

Thank heavens for The Forward. In their next article, they spell it out in case anyone believes Yarosh

The nationalist Svoboda party, which won 10% of the vote in parliamentary elections in 2012 and holds four positions in the interim government, is widely regarded as anti-Semitic. It’s leader, Oleg Tyagnibok, and many party members, have a record of anti-Semitic statements. Meanwhile, Dymtro Yarosh, whose far-right group, Right Sector played a militant role in the protests, met with Reuven Din El, Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine, on February 26, and promised to suppress anti-Semitism. According to the BBC, the Right Sector views even Svoboda as “too liberal and conformist.”

http://forward.com/articles/193994/why-tiny-ukraine-jewish-community-plays-key-role-i/?


Right Sector, whose social network page features extensive neo-Nazi imagery, has been patrolling alongside police and has ties to the new security service head, while a founding member of the neo-Nazi party that became Svoboda has been appointed head of the national security and defense council.

Right Sector's support for "traditional morals and family values, against the cult of profit and depravity," implies opposition to homosexuality, and the estimation of the "rights of the nation" against "human rights."<20> Right Sector rejects multiculturalism as "responsible for the disappearance of the crucifix" and the arrival of burkas in schools.<6>

Right Sector defines itself as neither xenophobic nor anti-Semitic, but instead as "nationalist, defending the values of white, Christian Europe against the loss of the nation and deregionalization."<6> Its social network page contains extensive neo-Nazi imagery,<8> and Haaretz reports of rumours that Right Sector has distributed translations of Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in Maidan Square.<36>

...

Right Sector is now considered the largest far-right group in Ukraine, and patrols Kiev with groups of young men armed with baseball bats or guns.<25> One member of a patrol told the BBC that National Socialist views are popular in Right Sector, though not all in the group share them. Elaborating, he explained that the ideology entailed "a clean nation, not like under Hitler, but in our own way, a little bit like that."<25>

The last quote ("a clean nation, not like under Hitler, but in our own way, a little bit like that") is at minute 2:40



For a real, non whitewashed taste of these guys, I recommend a 2011 documentary by Daniel Reynolds Riveiro. This is the 12-part youtube playlist. Part 3 is about their university, the MAUP. The segments are short. Part 1 below

Their feelings about non-Caucasians are the same. Blacks, Jews and Arabs need not apply. Example from France 24 here: http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/11396380-could-ukraine-be-the-most-racist-country-in-the-world

Many, many more examples to be found, predating this uprising.
