Junta Repressed Magyar Political Movement in Podkarpatskaya

00 zakarpattya Carpatho-Russia

______________________________

Because of junta repression of the Magyar community in Podkarpatskaya, community members filed a lawsuit against the Ukraine in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). The nationalist Party for a Better Hungary (Jobbik) established a fund, which had a programme of returning Podkarpatskaya to the Republic of Hungary (as well as reiterating their support for the DNR, Novorossiya, and the Russian Federation). A junta kangaroo court decided that the fund aimed at interfering in Ukrainian internal affairs and encroached on its territorial integrity. However, Magyars in Podkarpatskaya believe that the junta is trying to deprive them of support from a major nationalist political party, which has international recognition. Earlier, Magyars in Podkarpatskaya complained to the ECHR about the junta’s infringement of the rights of national minorities. As reported by LifeNews, the junta wouldn’t create a special national minority district in Podkarpatskaya to elect a People’s Deputy to the Rada. In addition, in Budapest earlier, Jobbik stated that the National Assembly of Hungary shouldn’t impose sanctions against Russia. Márton Dendesi, the head of the Jobbik foreign relations office, said that the embargo on shipping agricultural products and foodstuffs to Russia was a serious blow to Magyar producers. Jobbik urged the Hungarian government to follow the example of other EU countries to demand compensation from Brussels, to hold Hungarian-Russian intergovernmental meetings, and to start bilateral talks.

There is no such thing as a “Ukrainian” nationality… there is a faltering Ukrainian state at present, but no unified “Ukrainian” nation. There are Rusins, Poles, Magyars, Romanians, Russians, Roma, Jews, Galicians (the only purely “Ukrainian” group), and several “flavours” of Surzhik-speaking groups. The picture painted by “Ukrainian Catholics” and “Ukrainian Orthodox” is a fable, spun out of whole cloth, and utterly false to the bone. Russia can buy off the neighbours of the Ukraine by offering pieces of the dead carcass. Russia wants the bear’s share… it or its clients will control all territory under tsarist control in 1914. Hungary will get Podkarpatskaya… Romania will get Bukovina… Poland will get the Lvovshchina (Poland has never given up its claim to Lwów… a Polish and Jewish, NOT Galician, city in 1939… the Lwów Eaglets, anyone?). The USA? It won’t be able to do shit… and all the Europeans will know it.

“The Ukraine isn’t dead yet”… no, but it soon shall be…

German Families to Sue the Ukraine Over MH17 Crash

00 Rossiya-Segodnya Infographics. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 Crash Near Donetsk. 2014

______________________________

The families of German citizens killed in the Malaysian plane crash in the eastern Ukraine plan to sue the Ukrainian authorities in the European Court of Human Rights, accusing them of manslaughter by negligence. Elmar Giemulla, a professor of aviation law representing three families of German victims, told Bild am Sonntag, a German Sunday newspaper that the Ukraine should’ve closed its airspace if it couldn’t provide for the safety of flights over its territory, saying, “Each state is responsible for securing its airspace. If it isn’t able to do so temporarily, it must close its airspace. As that didn’t happen, the Ukraine is liable for the damage”. According to Giemulla, by leaving the airspace open, Kiev authorities “destroyed” the lives of hundreds of innocent people. Thus, he concluded that the Ukraine committed human rights violations; therefore, it should pay at least one million Euros (49.4 million Roubles. 7.9 million Renminbi. 78.2 million INR. 1.3 million USD. 1.4 million CAD. 1.45 million AUD. 787,000 UK Pounds) to each family of the German crash victims.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over the eastern Ukraine on 17 July. Amongst the 298 victims killed in the incident were four German citizens. A preliminary report into the disaster delivered by Dutch investigators on 9 September said that the MH17 crash was a result of structural damage caused by a large number of high-energy objects striking the Boeing from the outside. Earlier, a number of Western countries blamed Russia for the tragedy, which they said came about because Novorossiyan forces helped by Moscow launched a SAM at the airliner. Russia denied such allegations, expressing some irritation with the lack of new evidence presented in the report. Moscow suggested that the UN should appoint a special representative to monitor the investigation into the MH17 shootdown. Moscow made radar surveillance data of the incident public, arguing that it pointed to the possibility that the Ukrainian side downed the Malaysian plane. On Wednesday, an independent German fraud investigation company said that it’d pay 30 million USD (1.16 billion Roubles. 185 million Renminbi. 1.83 billion INR. 32.9 million CAD. 33.6 million AUD. 23.4 million Euros. 18.4 million UK Pounds) to those who’d help identify the perpetrators of the disaster.

Some irresponsible Western sources attack RT… the above proves that RT IS credible… perhaps, more so than its Western analogues. After all, why would Western media sources attack it if it weren’t making them look bad? You may believe Patrick Buchanan George Will, Rich Lowry, and Rod Dreher, who issue pre-digested Western pap in praise of and puffing up undisguised evil in the form of unbridled crapitalism, or you may believe non-Western sources such as RT… it’s up to you…

Konovalov: Russia will Respond “In an Appropriate Manner” in re the Kononov Affair in Latvia

Latvian Nazi SS volunteer… they did this WILLINGLY… never forget that.

______________________________

Russia could flood the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) with claims based on the facts of mass executions committed by nationals of the Baltic states and the Western Ukraine. On Wednesday, Aleksandr Konovalov, the RF Minister of Justice, made such a proposal in answering questions from RF Gosduma deputies on the reaction by his ministry to the ECHR decision in respect of a Russian veteran of the Second Great Patriotic War, Vasili Kononov (who is resident in Latvia). Vladimir Zorin, Deputy Director of the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, spoke to VOR on Konovalov’s initiative, saying, “I think that Konovalov’s proposal is an appropriate response. The Russian side has collected sufficient material on those war criminals that weren’t punished for their actions, who avoided justice by many means, including fleeing abroad. Therefore, I hope that the ECHR shall take such accusations very seriously. We must tackle and eliminate both historical revisionism and persecution of the veterans of the Great Patriotic War and those who fought in the anti-fascist cause. It’s disgraceful that a modern state has done this”.

Let’s look at the heart of the matter. World War II veteran Vasili Kononov was accused of nothing less than genocide against the Latvian people. Being a member of a partisan band, he participated in the execution of Nazi collaborators in the small Latvian village of Mazie Bati. A Latvian court found him guilty and sentenced to 6½ years in prison. He languished in gaol for over a year-and-a half. Vigorous Russian intervention led to his release, but he didn’t receive a pardon. Kononov, who had received Russian citizenship by this time, made a claim to the ECHR. In 2008, the court decided in his favour, the ECHR ordered Latvia to pay 30,000 Euros in compensation to Kononov. Riga appealed the decision, and on 17 May this year, the ECHR ruled in favour of Latvia. Russian observers saw this decision as frankly political. In the words of Minister Konovalov, speaking in the RF Gosduma, this is a frankly flawed policy. It’s not just about the persecution of a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, but an attempt to condemn the activities of the Red Army in Nazi-occupied Latvia and to impose historical revisionism vis-à-vis the outcome of World War II, with the backing of the ECHR judges, no less. In light of this, one can conclude that they will judge American and British pilots that bombed German cities and military installations in occupied countries, for it’s always possible that they killed civilians in the process. That’s what the Latvian authorities accused Kononov of doing. The Ministry of Justice, according to Konovalov, compiled materials on nationals of the Baltics and the Western Ukraine who participated in mass repressions and executions in Pskov and Novgorod Oblasts and in other places. Such action should definitively discourage European judges from distorting the liberation struggle against Nazi barbarism and subsume into its criminal database.

Some of the loudest voices amongst Slavic émigré communities in North America are the Galician Uniates and Croatian Catholics. The Balts are just as vociferous. I’d say, never forget that these groups were ready and willing collaborators with the Nazis; they were the Nazis’ willing hangsmen, they willingly rounded up Jews for the slaughter, and they killed countless numbers of Orthodox Christians. These people were NOT like John Demjanjuk, who was nothing but a perimeter guard (if that), whose original conviction was on the basis of forged documents. Reflect well on the fact that such Nazi filth or their descendants lead most “Ukrainian”, Balt, or Croatian organisations in the diaspora. Let’s see… Joe Biden’s mentor was an RC priest who was an Ustaše apologist. That’s why these pigs have gotten “good press” in North America. They were Nazi collaborators… pure and simple. They’re drenched in blood… never forget that. It certainly puts their charges of “Russian persecution” in a new light, no?
