The Ukrainian army has appointed the right-wing Dimitri Jarosch as official adviser to the army leadership. His militias are officially part of the army – under the leadership of the independent Jarosch. Thus, the right-wing extremists also gain access to US weapons, and weapons that are financed by European taxpayers.
Russia will interpret this as a threat.
The militias of the „right sector” in Ukraine are now greatly enhanced by this appointment, which was made on Sunday, April 5th. The chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, General Viktor Muschenko, is thus incorporating the far-right militias into his army. Muschenko announces that the Ukrainian army has become one of the strongest in Europe. The soldiers of this army have proved that they know how to fight. [Whereas the regular army of Ukraine has, thus far, performed poorly, top to bottom, the forces under Yarosh’s control, and under his fellow-nazi Andrei Biletsky’s, have been on a par with the local forces of the Donbass, against whom they’ve been fighting. But now, with the military expertise of the nazis and of their American advisors, training everyone starting on April 20th (which is Hitler’s birthday), this will be a different war, and could have a radically different outcome, which will then force a Russian invasion of Ukraine, especially because both Yarosh and Biletsky are lifelong-committed to conquering Russia.]
The army appreciates the „contributions” of volunteer battalions because they have „rendered outstanding services to the defense of Ukraine.” Muzhenko says: „We understand that we need to increase the efficiency of the army at all levels. We are currently considering various issues, such as how the reserve army can be formed. We have united all patriots and defenders of Ukraine under one MANAGEMENT. The enemy understands our unity and knows that his attacks will fail. We have the common goal of a united Ukraine. The army grows stronger every week.”
Jarosch said that this unity of command and operations is a prerequisite for further successful battles. The volunteer battalions of right sector are willing to integrate with the official Ukrainian army for that reason.
The Kiev Post reports that the right sector and other right militias will in the future function as an independently MANAGED division of the Ukrainian army, which will be managed, directed, and commanded, by Jarosch.
For Russia, this is not good news. The right sector has so far refused to accept the Minsk agreements. The militias are considered particularly ideological and determined to continue the fight against Russia by any and all means. Whether the integration of Jarosch’s troops into the official Army will produce a significant rightward shift in the entire army is as yet unclear.
It is quite conceivable that the new American weapons could thoroughly fall into the hands of the extreme right. As an official army unit, there should be no problem for these forces to access these weapons. It is also conceivable that the Jarosch forces will additionally get weapons that are financed by European taxpayers’ money. Starting on April 20, will be military maneuvers in which the US Army will train these right-wing extremists.
The IMF recently granted to Ukraine a new billion-dollar loan. Germany and the EU also grant Kiev considerable loans, whose use has so far been insufficiently controlled by the EU. Among other things, these funds flow into the construction of a border wall against Russia. [That will present a barrier in case the local Donbass forces need assistance from the Russian army in a clinch. It will isolate the Donbass residents and possibly subject them to slaughter.]
Neither the US, the EU nor the IMF have expressed the slightest concern about Ukraine’s increasing control by the extreme right.
Additional comments by Eric Zuesse: This inclusion of the all-out nazis in Ukraine’s armed forces would not happen if it did not have the prior approval of the Obama Administration, which controls this government thoroughly; this government is entirely beholden to Obama for having brought them to power, and is beholden to the U.S. Congress for its ongoing financial support. This is a declaration of war against Russia, not only against Donbass — which has been under invasion from the coup-regime ever since 9 May 2014. In other words: Obama now clearly wants war with Russia. Dmitriy Yarosh is committed to destroying Russia — it has been his lifelong obsession — not just committed to retaking Crimea and Donbass. This is the follow-through to Obama’s February 2014 coup in Ukraine. This follow-through is a nightmare for Russians. They are now all mortally threatened by Obama and the U.S. Congress. Putin will, at some point, need to invade Kiev, unless this move that was announced on Sunday is quickly reversed. The question then is whether Russia will launch a first-strike nuclear attack against the United States, or instead just wait for the U.S. to strike first (and then attack back, if they still would be able to). Obama is, now, certainly the worst President in U.S. history — even worse than George W. Bush. This entire confrontation was precipitated by him when he perpetrated the coup in Kiev in February 2014, which had been planned in the White House even before Yanukovych decided to reject the EU’s offer. In fact, the coup-operation was already under way by Spring of 2013, at the very latest. It was planned a full year before Crimea, under threat because of Obama’s February 2014 coup, held its 16 March 2014 plebiscite and joined Russia. If Angela Merkel continues supporting Obama in his hate-Russians campaign, then the world is in for the worst time that has ever existed. The only thing that can stop it would be Merkel switching her support to Putin, and announcing that Germany must leave NATO and expel American forces from its soil. Short of that, we are heading into hell. And it’s all entirely needless. Andrew Krieg’s Presidential Puppetrymakes a strong case that Obama has been secretly a CIA and American-aristocracy agent since very early in life, and that case just became a lot stronger today. The question for Merkel now is: Is she also a nazi? Is Germany really going back to that? This time, the primary target will be Russians, not Jews, but the consequences will be even worse than before.
