Ukraine | Kiev Regime Celebrates Bandera’s Birthday

On Tuesday 18 Ukrainian parliament adopted a list of memorial days for the year of 2019. It starts from the birthday of Stepan Bandera, the leader of Ukrainian Nazi movement. The National Bank will produce commemorative coins, and state mail service will create post envelopes and stamps. The Ministry of Education is obliged to give lessons at schools and higher education institutions devoted to birthday boys, the Ministry of Culture is obliged to organize exhibitions and thematic events, and the Television and Radio Broadcasting Committee is obliged to promote media coverage. The regional authorities are also active in glorification. Lviv regional council proclaimed the year of 2019 a year of Bandera. The decision of the Ukrainian authorities to celebrate the birthday of Stepan Bandera at the official level is blasphemy against the memory of all those who were killed by the hands of Ukrainian nationalists.

By Phil Wilayto

Tensions between Russia and Ukraine have risen sharply following the Nov. 25 seizure of two Ukrainian gunboats and a tug and the detention of 24 Ukrainian sailors by vessels of the Russian Border Guard.

Ukraine | Interview with Vasiliy Volga, the leader of the Ukrainian Union of Left Forces

Introduction by Halyna Mokrushyna

Vasiliy Volga is a veteran of Ukrainian politics and the leader of the Ukrainian party Union of Left Forces. He founded the Union in 2007 after leaving the Socialist Party of Ukraine which, because of internal squabbles, was not able to secure seats in the Verkhovna Rada in the 2007 parliamentary elections. Volga’s position as an active critic of the current Ukrainian political regime based on right-wing nationalism places him under the close surveillance by security services. Very recently, on November 6, his home was searched and he himself was summoned for an interrogation to the office of the Security Service of Ukraine where he was presented with phony, groundless accusations. Vasiliy Volga also receives threats from the extreme right ‘patriots’ of Ukraine. It takes courage to take a leftist, anti-nationalist stance in the stiffing political atmosphere of the post-Euromaidan Ukraine where hundreds of political opponents of the Poroshenko regime have been imprisoned or intimidated. Vasiliy Volga certainly has this courage.
