Ukrainian neonazi death threats against anti-Hitler veterans


This video from Ukraine says about itself:

Banderaers, get out of here!” – In Vinnitsa and Kherson there were mass fights on May 1

1 May 2017

While throughout Europe there are demonstrations dedicated to the International Day of Workers, in Ukraine, savage neo-Nazis attack those who dared to take to the streets.

In Vinnitsa, the radicals of the neo-Nazi organization “C14” attacked the May Day procession, trying to disperse it. The Nazis pulled out red flags with the inscriptions “Socialists” and “Union of Left Forces.” As a result, a fight broke out …

Similar attacks took place in Kharkov … where nationalists also beat people. Kherson was no exception: neo-Nazis from the “Right Sector” and “National Corps” (“Azov“) staged a fight with the inhabitants of Kherson.

Residents of the city from among the Union of Left Forces and the All-Ukrainian Union of Women “For the Future of the Children of Ukraine” tried to hold a May Day demonstration. But we came across opposition from the Ukrainian neo-Nazis.

It is noteworthy that the Kherson people took to the streets with calls for the need to end the war in the Donbass. With the same appeal the people of Kiev came out.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Ukraine: Neonazis threaten to stab WWII veterans

Monday 8th May 2017

SECOND world war veterans planning to march on what may be Ukraine’s last Victory Day public holiday have been threatened with attack by fascist paramilitaries.

Street fighters of the C14 group, a Transcarpathian Cossack outfit linked to the neonazi Right Sector party, attacked veterans on May Day with cries of “Ukraine is free” and “Commies to the gibbet,” according to witnesses.

The group’s name … is derived from the resemblance of the Cyrillic form of “sich,” a Cossack word for a command group, to C14 in Western script.

In the C14 name, the C also alludes to C18, the (originally English, later international) neonazi terror gang Combat 18. In which 18, the first and eighth letters in the alphabet, stands for ‘AH’=Adolf Hitler. The 14 in the C14 name stands for the ’14 words’, a racist neonazi slogan.

Police held the attackers back, but the group’s website congratulated them and posted comments including: “Just wait for May 9! Send the reddish spawn to hell!” and “Knife the veterans!”

Ukraine’s government since the EU-backed coup of 2014 associates itself with the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists, which fought alongside the nazis in the second world war and helped carry out the Holocaust, and legislation removing May 9 — the anniversary of the nazi surrender to the Soviet Union — as a public holiday is going through parliament.

    UKRAINIAN police arrested over 50 people yesterday as neonazis attacked those celebrating the victory over fascism in the second world war.

    Deputy Interior Minister Serhiy Yarovoy said 25 of those were detained in the capital Kiev.

    There far-right thugs attacked a march commemorating the Immortal Regiment — Soviet service personnel who fought in WWII — as it approached the Eternal Flame memorial in the Park of Eternal Glory, Russia’s Sputnik reported.

    Earlier police arrested a man carrying a banner in the colours of the banned St George’s ribbon.

    Mr Yarovoy said 30,000 police were deployed for the marches, which 50,000 people joined.

    Interior Ministry spokesman Artem Shevchenko said eight police officers had been injured in clashes, along with 15 “participants of campaigns.”

    In the eastern city of Kharkiv — a neonazi stronghold — police had to intervene after militants attacked Victory Day celebrants chanting: “Fascism will not pass” and singing Soviet-era songs.

    Last week the Transcarpathian Cossack C14 group — linked to the neonazi Right Sector gang that was prominent in the 2014 Maidan Square coup — threatened to “knife” aged war heroes.

    Meanwhile in Crimea, which voted to secede from Ukraine and reunite with Russia after the 2014 coup, 30,000 gathered for the Victory Day parade in Sevastopol.
