The theater of the absurd continues.
His days are numbered, poroshenko says retarded things for political reasons, this clown says retarded things because he believes them.
The day will come when the both of them, and turchinov will be hiding in canada or the us with a warrant out for their arrest by the ukrainian authorities. Other scumbags like tyagnibok and yarosh will be six feet under by then hopefully.
I gave you a plus vote for your post!!
The Obama Administration has gotten by with instigating a coup in Ukraine and with supporting Neo-Nazis because of the ignorance of the American public, and because persons in power divide and conquer the American Public, pit them against each other in politics, but facts will NOT be hidden forever.

The final version of my article, entitled "Terrorists or National Heroes? Politics and Perceptions of the OUN and the UPA in Ukraine," has been published today in Communist and Post-Communist Studies. The publisher provided me with the following

This is, to me, an amazing statement from Mr. Ivan Katchanovski's article. Read the academic definition of terrorist organization! -- as the use or a threat of the use of violence against civilians by organizations and other non-state actors in order to intimidate and to achieve political goals.
Up to now, I'd never thought of the academic definition of terrorism.
His article also defines ethnic cleansing. It's a great article!
[Both the OUN and the UPA were terrorist organizations because their actions corresponded to academic definitions of terrorism as the use or a threat of the use of violence against civilians by organizations and other non-state actors in order to intimidate and to achieve political goals. The OUN relied on a campaign of the assassinations of Polish and Soviet officials as well as pro-Polish Ukrainians in the 1930s in order to advance its political goals. For example, Bandera and other leading members of the OUN, such as Mykola Lebed and Shukhevych, organized in 1934 an assassination of Bronislaw Pieracki, the Polish minister of internal affairs. Evidence of the involvement of the OUN in international terrorism also exists—for example, a reported Nazi-led plot to assassinate U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940–1941 as well as OUN assistance in the assassination of the king of Yugoslavia and of the French foreign minister in 1934 (Case 800.20211/Matzejko, 1940–1944; Henry, 1940–1964; Sudoplatov, 1998/2003, 26).
The historical issues contributed to radicalization of the Ukrainian society since the “Euromaidan.” While their role was exaggerated by Russian and separatist politicians, these divisive historical issues, the resort to violence by contemporary ideological successors to the OUN and the UPA, such as the Right Sector, and their embrace by Maidan leaders and Maidan-led governments contributed to the de facto breakup of Ukraine manifested by the secession and the Russian annexation of Crimea and the civil war in Donbas. This study implies that the regional differences in attitudes toward the OUN, the UPA, and their leaders are not likely to disappear in the foreseeable future, and that the increased political salience of these issues after the “Euromaidan” is likely to exacerbate regional cleavages and conflicts in Ukraine.]
KUDOS TO Ivan Katchanovski for presenting facts and taking a stand. Respect to him!!

Western media continues to promote in Ukraine policies and institutions, such as the Ukrainian National Memory Institute and its historical memory policy, which would be regarded as unacceptable in Western democratic countries.
