MADRID, Spain – Life continues in Ukraine. It seems obvious, since time is the same everywhere, but since the coup d’état in 2014, we have barely heard about Ukraine. Practically everything related to the civil war that ravages the east of the country or the Russian occupation of Crimea goes unnoticed except for some sporadic article about the government.
On February 4 groups of citizens took to the streets -they were protesting- the truth is that it is nothing new, from Yanukovych’s death rattles, the citizens dissatisfied with their state and the governing body have increased, until becoming an almost weekly.
In this particular case the citizens left in the city of Kiev, and protested against the so-called ‘Druzhyna Nacional’, an umbrella organization parallel to the state, which they are assuming, in some cities, or treating it in others, to take over the work of the police.
And now we must ask: What is this militia? Who leads? Where does it come from?
The Druzhyna, is a militia, usually formed by veterans of the ‘ATO’ (Abbreviations in English of: Anti-terrorist Operation zone), that either by demobilization, incapacity or other commitments, have stopped serving in the front, to the east of the country, and have returned to their homes.
It is not a spontaneously emerged militia, it has been created by Ihor Kashka, Artem Klimin and Maksym Klymka, the three veterans of the war. The organization is present already in 18 regions of the country and in several cities such as Cherkassy or Lustk, and is already considered a civic organization for the protection of public order. It has 600 militants in Kiev where they are still only recognized as NGOs (Non-Governmental Organization), waiting to legalize their roles. And more than 1000 members throughout the country.
But this is all? Not much less, these gentlemen occupy the position of ‘directors’ of the militia, which constitutes the armed arm of the political party National Corps founded in 2016 by Andriy Biletsky, the man who really leads the strings, current parliamentarian in the Verkhovna Rada (Rada supreme) of Ukraine, a position he won in 2014 thanks to President Poroshenko for his “great” work in the ATO.
What is the trajectory of this man? Basically since 1991 (independence of Ukraine) has jumped from continuing political party mind in search of an opportunity to root their extreme ideas. Before founding the National Corps in 2016, he was from the beginning of operations in the ATO zone, in the Azov Battalion, known for photos of some of its members with neo-Nazi symbology, especially the famous Wolfsangel. And from here the opacity of the subject becomes sinister.
The Azov Battalion was formed in 2014 at the beginning of the insurrection in eastern Ukraine by rebels to whom Russia had created illusions to repeat a ‘Crimea’. The battalion creators, apart from Biletsky himself, were Oleh Lyashko, the ultra-nationalists Dmytro Korchynsky, the businessman Serhiy Taruta and Arsen Avakov, who shortly after would obtain the post of Minister of the Interior of Ukraine, based on the ultras of the football team FC metalist Kharkiv of nationalist tendencies and white supremacists. Soon large numbers of right-wing volunteers joined the battalion, which received funding from various parties, mainly the Ukrainian diaspora in the West and the Jewish Oligarch Igor Kolomoyskyi.
The volunteers came from various parties such as Pravij Sector or Sbovoda, the majority by then in terms of number of militants. But they also came from the ‘Patriotras de Ucrania’ party whose main symbol corresponds, again to Wolfsangel, and, in the presence of Andriy Biletsky, leader of the party since 2005. It was founded in 1996 as a civic organization, and in its first congress celebrated in December of 1999 its first leader Andriy Parubi was released, who would later be replaced by Oleh Tyahnybok. The party was dissolved in 2004 and changed its name to Sbovoda, but in 2005 it was re-founded by Biletsky. Sbovoda would later play a pivotal role in the February 2014 coup and both Parubi and Tyahnybok would obtain positions in the Verkhovna Rada as well as finally Tyahnybok would end up as the mayor of Kiev.
Where did this organization come from? It emerges from the political party “Соціал-національна партія України” or in Spanish: Social-National Party of Ukraine, with the wolfsangen as the main emblem. Founded in 1991 by Paruby and Tyahnybok the party followed directly the ideas of Yaroslav Stestko. Who was this man? Died in 1986 Stetsko was the leader of the anti-communist organization OUN-B: “Organization of Ukranian Nationalist”, created in 1929 in the city of Vienna, originally split into two sections, the OUN-M, moderate and the radical OUN-B, the latter led by Stephan Bandera and Stetsko himself. The organization during the period between the wars was established mainly in the Galizia of the east and east of Poland, and later also in the west of the Soviet Ukraine. Where they were systemically dedicated to the murder of Poles, Russians and Jews in pursuit of an ethnically Ukrainian Ukraine. Later in World War II they collaborated with the axis at the beginning of the Barbarossa operation, supporting Hitler’s Army.
As you can see, despite not being news, currently Ukraine scares, the monster that the West has generated in Ukraine, with the overthrow of Yanukovich grows, with our consent and permission to be used as a weapon thrown against Russia, objective last of NATO. Regardless of how it is shown, the suffering of the Ukrainian people.
