Life is simple if you believe that there are only 100% good guys, and 100% bad guys or movements. ( Manicheïsm) For most people a 100% bad movement is Hitler's Nazism.
I don't have the time to elaborate on the subject, but I want to hint at a few facts here.
Below you will find an article (Seven Decades... by mr Rosenberg.) that proves that the USA's Republican Party always had very good relations with Ukraïnian people who once fought together with Hitler.
Rosenberg: 'Shame on the Republicans, to have friends who once were Hitlers buddies.'
But when Communism is a life threatening World Power, it is not a bad idea to ally with locals ( people born in the Ukraïne, but now living in the USA. ) who know that country very well and also hate the Communists.
So, maybe it was a matter of 'these necessary dirty hands' that one has to make in order to defend his country. Let's give the Republicans the benefit of the doubt, and use this information to understand better how politics work.
And how about these Ukraïnian fascists? Are they 100% bad people?
Well, I have the impression that they are still very very angry and brutal. On youtube you will find many video's to prove that. They look ferocious too.
How did they get to be so angry?
For that we must go back into history.
Around the year 1500 the Polish noblemen ( Schlachta) and Clergy ( Roman Catholocs) became more and more powerful. In the next 300 years their 'empire' grew to invlude Lithuania and a big part of the Ukraïne.
How did they get to be so rich and powerful?
Simple: They invited all the jews who were expelled from Western Europe ( 1492: Spain, etc etc. ) to come to Poland.
Not as outcasts or peddlers, but as Arendars: a person who leased a property from the Schlachta or Clergy for 3 years. This could be a farm, a brewery, a windmill, a court of justice, a village or even a complete province. The people living on the farms were include in the lease and treated like slaves.
So these jews entered Poland and almost overnight became the direct bosses of the Polish people. They even had the courts in their power, as they simply leased that too. They would send Polish slaves to be put on the stake ( a wooden pole is put in the anus and will come out of the body near the shoulders. It must be done in such a way that no vital organs are hurt, so that the victim will die after many days, and not immediately) for petty crimes.
Even the rabbi's warned that this would create a huge hatred from the polish farmers, a hatred that would one day come back to the jews.
You can read all about it in Nicholas Lysson's essay: Holocaust and Holomodor.
The revenge came in 1648: the Khmelnitsky uprising.
K. killed about 250.000 jews, but much more Polish collaborators of the Schlachta.
But, as we read in Paul Johnson's book 'The History of the Jews', jewish students do not study history. They only remember all the pogroms that they suffered from.
So the 1648 uprising ( which was completely understandable and well deserved, of course) became one of the incentives for tha bad treatment of the Ukraïne under Communist regime.
The deliberate killing of 6 to 10 million Ukraïnians by starvation in 1932 and 1933 was seen by the Ukraïnians as a jewish revenge for the Khmelnitsky uprising. It was done by the Russians, by the comunists, but above all: by the jewish Russiand, the jewish communists, the jewish cheka.
You can read about that at Slezkine ( 2005) and Solzhenitsyn ( 200 years togehter).
So it is not really strange that when Hitler entered Ukraïne, that most Ukraïnians were happy to take revenge on Russian and Jewish people in the Ukraïne.
The Jews have been very very influential in the USSR untill 1948. But even now, during this 2014 Coup, we see that Jewish oligarchs are very powerful.
The amazing thing is now that these nazi-like and antisemite-like Svoboda and Right Power groups are working together with Jews or half jews ( like Yatsenyuk). I can only explain it because they both need each other to take over the land, and both think that they will be able to drive out the other party in a later stage.
Here is the article that shows the close cooperation between Ukraïnian Nazi's and the Republican Party in the USA:
