Ukraine | Odessa massacre: five years passed – nothing changed

Yesterday Odessa residents commemorated fifth anniversary of massacre in the Trade union house at Kulikovo field square. That day five years before a mob of aggressive neo-fascists burnt alive their opponents, who didn’t support far-right coup in Ukraine and demanded rebuilding Ukraine to federative state. According to official data there were 46 victims: 42 federalists were killed in the House of Trade Unions and 4 men in other places of Odessa. But the Council of mothers numbered 49 victims according to recently found evidences.

Ukraine | Ukrainian presidential elections: the society of the spectacle

Ukraine voters have elected a TV comedy actor as their new president. In this piece, written exclusively for the New Cold War website by our regular contributor on Ukraine, Dmitriy Kovalevich, he discusses Vladimir Zelensky’s resounding victory and what this could mean for the country’s fragmented political framework and its people’s future. 

Ukraine | Ukraine Will Become a Parliamentary Republic

April 17

A political show is moving on in Ukraine. The second round of election is not something unexpected as none of the 39 candidates had a chance to obtain more than 50 per cent of the total votes cast. Following the results of the vote, Volodymyr Zelensky, a comic and a new figure in politics, is leading. He obtained 30.24% of the votes. This is certainly a resounding success, but not a complete victory. Volodymyr Zelensky has no adequate team behind him. Up to now, it consisted mainly of his colleagues involved in television media. However, this may be just a facade, only the tip of an iceberg. And in truth, Volodymyr Zelensky answers to more influential people than, for instance, Ihor Kolomoyskyi, who president Petro Poroshenko believes to be the main puppet master of his competitor.

Ukraine | Que va-t-il arriver à Porochenko en cas de défaite?

Ce qui se passe en Ukraine atteint les sommets du grotesque sordide mais ce n’est à peine plus caricatural que ce qui se passe dans le reste du monde occidental et dans lequel nous sommes tous pris. Si on ajoute à cette sarcastique description le fait que ces gens-là ont été installés par la CIA et directement par Merkel et les Français déjà on mesure la proximité. Mais elle est encore plus importante si l’on sait que derrière le candidat pitre Zelensky (dont l’unique sens est : il faut virer le précédent), il y a Kolomoïski, le type le plus extraordinairement pourri qui se puisse imaginer (un juif qui a pour garde prétorienne des néo-nazis et dont le soutien en France est BHL) et le cocaïnomane dictateur pitre de Géorgie Mikhail Saakashvili. très lié au candidat du PS Rafaël Gluksmann. Ils entretiennent haine et mépris et ont besoin de l’extrême-droite pour faire régner la terreur. Tous ces gens-là donnent la nausée aux Ukrainiens et à ceux qui les connaissent. Mais nous avons en France ceux qui les maintiennent au pouvoir pour le malheur d’un peuple. Les démocraties occidentales semblent se vautrer dans une quelconque chute de l’empire romain. Quand 27 personnes possèdent la moitié de ce que possède l’humanité que peut-on attendre de ladite démocratie? (note de Danielle Bleitrach)
