DISINFO: Chauvinist outbursts of Ukraine do not bother the USA if they are combined with Russophobia
Many years of turning a blind eye to the anti-Polish, anti-Semitic, anti-Russian and chauvinist outbursts of the Ukrainian politicians have resulted in the disappearance of any brakes for them. From Simon Petliura and Stepan Bandera, they went to the appraisal of the Ukrainians who served directly under the criminal apparatus of the Third Reich. It means that [the Ukrainian politicians] feel that they have consent for these actions from their patrons in Washington, the team of Joe Biden in the White House and the State Department.
The duplicity of Biden’s team manifests itself in opposing the right-wing extremism in the USA, but at the same time, not reacting to the right-wing and even neo-Nazi extremism in Eastern Europe. Anti-Semitism and chauvinism do not bother the Biden’s team as long as it is combined with Russophobia. The anti-Polish trait of Ukrainian nationalism is least noticed by the American authorities.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link the Baltic countries, Ukraine, and Poland with Nazism, Fascism, and anti-Semitism. The accusation of Nazism is a popular propaganda technique used by pro-Kremlin outlets, as explained in our analysis: Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo’s nest.
The claim that the new American authorities “tolerate or allow” the alleged “anti-Semitic, anti-Polish and neo-Nazi outbursts“ of the Ukrainian politicians in order to promote Russophobia is unfounded.
The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine’s foreign policy. The Nazi and Communist ideologies were banned by Ukrainian law in 2015.
Read similar cases alleging that Ukraine is a neo-Nazi state, Ukrainian authorities encourage the honouring of Nazi collaborators and Nazi ideology became the only one allowed in Ukraine after February 2014.
