Members of Svoboda barged their way into the offices of Aleksandr Panteleymonov, the acting president of the National Television Company of Ukraine on Tuesday night.The Ukraine state TV's head was physically forced to resign by three Svoboda party MPs. The pony-tailed man is Igor Miroshnichenko, the deputy head of the "Freedom of Speech" committee in Ukraine. They called the TV station chief "Moscow trash," a derogatory term for Russians, and were angry the Ukrainian station ran footage of Putin explaining that the Russian Parliament signed a treaty with Crimea.
On January 28, 2014, a month before the coup ousting the democratically elected Ukraine president, a phone call between Victoria Nuland and US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, was intercepted. A little after 3 minutes into the conversation, Nuland uttered the undiplomatic phrase, "F--- the EU," and more importantly, a little after 1 minute, Nuland told Pyatt the names of the people she wanted governing Ukraine following the coup that hadn't happened yet. One of her picks was Oleh Tyahnybok, a man who revered a Nazi war criminal as a hero and has used anti-semitic hate speech in his quest to keep Ukraine for ethnically pure Ukrainians.
One of the “Big Three” political parties behind the protests is the ultra-nationalist Svoboda, whose leader, Oleh Tyahnybok, has called for the liberation of his country from the “Muscovite-Jewish mafia.”
After the 2010 conviction of the Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk for his supporting role in the death of nearly 30,000 people at the Sobibor camp, Tyahnybok rushed to Germany to declare him a hero who was “fighting for truth.”
However, in 2004 leader Oleh Tyahnybok gave a speech attacking what he called "the Moscow-Jewish mafia ruling Ukraine" and in another speech declared: "the Moskali, Germans, Kikes and other scum who wanted to take away our Ukrainian state."Nuland sounded more like a MAFIA don planning a hit rather than a well meaning diplomat looking out for the Ukrainian populace when she offered Ukraine a government with Nazi apologists they couldn't refuse via a coup, displacing the government they democratically elected:
I think Yats is the guy who's got the economic experience, the governing experience. He's the... what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside. He needs to be talking to them four times a week, you know. I just think Klitsch going in... he's going to be at that level working for Yatseniuk, it's just not going to work.
Seeing the government Nuland forged behaving like thugs comes as no surprise. This is not what democracy looks like. The Deputy Minister of the "Free Speech" committee coercing a television station chief to resign with his fists says it all.
