Ukraine | Fascists threaten the independence of the court in the capital of Ukraine

On the last day of July, representatives of the ultra-right organization C14 broke into the premises of the National Academy of Advocates of Ukraine (NAAU) in Kiev. Three dozen young people tried to disrupt the meeting of the defense lawyers’ committee. The lawyers called in the Podolsky district police department and replaced them with a request to send uninvited guests. The police said they did not see any violations and simply contemplated the continuation of the conflict between lawyers and fascists.
The reason was the conflict between fascists and lawyer Valentin Rybin in the building of the Court of Appeal of Kiev. On July 18, the court seized Sergei Mazur, one of the leaders of the fascist gang C14, accused of gypsy pogrom. On July 27, the court considered an appeal for his arrest. Several dozen fascists came to support their leader and met in court lawyer Rybin. They insulted the lawyer and tried to beat him. In response, the lawyer applied to the National Advocates Association of Ukraine, asking for an assessment of the situation. An emergency meeting of the relevant committee was scheduled for July 31. Then the fascists seized the meeting hall, and the police were inactive.

Ukraine | Ukraine’s anti-Roma pogroms ignored as Russia blamed for far right resurgence

by Max Parry

Last month, former U.S. Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during a lecture at Trinity College Dublin made remarks condemning Russian President Vladimir Putin, blaming him for the resurgence of far right politics in the European Union and United States. Clinton stated that Putin…

…has positioned himself as the leader of an authoritarian, white-supremacist and xenophobic movement that wants to break up the EU, weaken America’s traditional alliances and undermine democracy. We can see this authoritarian movement rippling out from the Kremlin, reaching across Europe and beyond. It’s emboldening right-wing nationalists, separatists, racists and even neo-Nazis.“

Before addressing the deceitfulness of her comments, the one part of them that is true needs to be recognized. At this point, it is universally acknowledged that there is a significant revival in far-right and neo-Nazi political activity being experienced in America and across the EU. It is also increasingly present in other countries such as India and Turkey, and even Brazil’s current leading candidate for President is being called a fascist. However, not only is Putin’s more traditional conservatism not in line with the rabidly anti-Semitic, Islamophobic and anti-immigrant orientations mobilizing in the West, according to a recent study the actual determinant of such activity is historically contingent with austerity implemented by neo-liberals like Mrs. Clinton.
