"The Nazi Streets of Ukraine"
Mark Sleboda, The Real Politic with Mark Sleboda (May 13, 2023)
Since the West-backed Maidan Putsch seized power in Ukraine in 2014, they have embarked on a massive de-Russification and pro-Banderization campaign, tearing down statues and monuments, replacing plaques, and renaming towns and streets – getting rid of anything dedicated to Russians and Soviets, and frequently erecting honours and memorials to WW2 era West Ukrainian Nazi collaborators, who are glorified for fighting those Russians and Communists, despite their bloody massacres of Ukrainian Jews, Poles, Hungarians, Russians, and Leftists in their place.
This policy has been accelerated even further in recent days as Zelenskiy has recently put into force directives that Ukraine must be completely de-Russified by the end of the year.
A Ukraine where before the West-backed Maidan Putsch in 2014, 20% of the population was ethnic Russian and over half of the country spoke Russian on a daily basis.
This is a West-backed & funded geopolitical project to rewrite history and manufacture, by fire, jackboot and blood, a virulently anti-Russian Ukraine, forcing the national identity conception of the Galician West of Ukraine where Nazi Germany was welcomed in WW2 – over the whole of the country.
In the latest round of erasing and reconstituting Ukraine’s history and identity, the Kiev city council has now renamed Stolyetova Street in Kiev, Ulas Samchuk Street in honor of Ulas Semchuk a rabid ideological anti-Semite and fascist, and Nazi collaborator.
During 1941–1942, Ulas Samchuk worked for the Nazi's, within the Reichskommissariat Ukraine, as chief editor of the pro-Nazi newspaper Volyn in Rovno in West Ukraine.
Volyn was published in thousands of copies and was widely distributed. In his articles, Samchuk lied, incited, justified the murders and called for the extermination of Jews Poles, Leftists, Russians, and other “undersireables” in Ukraine.
Samchuk wrote his anti-Jewish articles calmly cheerleading the massacre of 25,000 Jews in Rovno, including 6,000 children that it inspired. Incidentally a statue of Ulas Samchuk has also now been erected in Rovno
Some of Ulas Samchuk’s best published quotes, “Where the Ukrainian state will be built, there will be no Jews there"
Samchuk wrote of the mass murder of Jews in Kyiv at Babi Yar, “Today is a great day for Kyiv.”
“The element that settled our cities, whether it is Jews or Poles who were brought here from outside Ukraine, must disappear completely from our cities. The Jewish problem is already in the process of being solved.” and “All elements that reside in our land, whether they are Jews or Poles, must be eradicated. We are at this very moment resolving the Jewish question, and this resolution is part of the plan for the Reich’s total reorganization of Europe. The empty space that will be created, must immediately and irrevocable be filled by the real owners and masters of this land, the Ukrainian people”
Samchuk also wrote articles lionizing his personal idol — "Adolf Hitler".
In Ukraine today, Ulas Samchuk is promoted by the West-backed Kiev Putsch regime as a hero and great figure of Ukrainian literature and culture, taught and required reading in schools.
Figures such as Samchuk glorified by the Kiev regime are airbrushed away with apologism by the Western MSM as “controversial historical figures”. Controversial?!? There is nothing “controversial” about them. THAT is historical revisionism of the most obscene kind.
They are Nazi collaborators and fascists. That is not excused away and exonerated by the fact that they hated Russians & leftists too.
This is not just “Holocaust denial.” It is “Holocaust Celebration”.
Israel and the Simon Wiesenthal Center, among others, have repeatedly condemned this systemic and state-promoted glorification and heroization of WW2 era Nazi collaborators, war criminals, and Holocaust perpetrators like Stepan Bandera, Roman Shukhevych, and many others by the West-backed Kiev Putsch regime in Ukraine.
The Israeli Ambassador to Ukraine has quietly but officially asked the Kiev regime to remove Ulas Samchuk and other Nazi collaborators and Holocaust perpetrators from its “List of Heroes” and stop glorifying them – to no avail. But in the end, geopolitics trumps history and memory of the Holocaust, I guess.
This is the Ukraine that the West is supporting and building in Ukraine. The Ukraine of Ulas Samchuk [emphasis added].
