The mad instructions to
Berkut and special police units to use live ammunition on 'terrorists'
that in reality were nothing more unarmed protesters and disaffected
civilians led to a bloodbath in and around Maidan. The army refused to
take to the streets yet the head of security demanded the battle with
the 'terrorists' be fought to the bitter end. Clips with wheezing
bullets, people pinned with head-shots and mix of battle hardened and
average civilians risking it all for their ideals. Thanks to the heroic
acts Europe had not witnessed for a long time the regime was removed.
The power structure in Ukraine
interim government is composed of different parties. The Fatherland and
UDAR parties were in the protests that ousted Yanukovych. Die Spiegel
revealed their parties have close ties with two powerful men: Rinat
Akhmetov and Dmitry Firtash. The same men that formed the backbone of
the Party of Regions that has just been ousted from power. So 'the
opposition' is no opposition to the previous power structures. Moreover
both parties are lead by people whose ancestry is not exactly Ukrainian.
Their ancestry belongs to the same line of people running multi billion
dollar companies in the US. The small communist parties are for
Eurasia. The only ones remaining opposition to international finance are
the right wing groups. But are they big enough to exert the necessary
power to control Ukraine and repel Eurasianism and Globalism?
The Crimean Peninsula Dilemma
contrast with Central/ Western emerging regions, Crimean/ Sevastopol
movements cried for overnight military intervention. Whilst Catalonia
has been building up its secessionist case for ages to protect its
identity, the southernmost Ukrainian regions are wiling to see their
identity tainted with mosques like Kaliningrad.
Russian marines arriving in Sevastopol, armoured vehicles and military
trucks with soldiers on the streets and Putin's orders to a military
drill in central and western Russia added to the uncertainty.
has flexed its military muscle to protect the 'rights' of Crimea and
Sevastopol but in 2003 Russia had relegated the Baltic Republican Party.
The possibility of regional movements was trashed with a law, stating
each party should have regional branches in at least half of the Russian
Federation constituencies. Should an Abkhaizia/ South Ossetia style
annexation takes place the people will have no democratic way to secede
from Russia afterwards. While under the Ukrainian government Crimea and
Sevastopol can ask for further autonomy under Russia their political
voice will be chocked.
The Holocaust vs Holodomor
has not only failed to give the Holodomor victims' relatives the same
way Germany awarded 'holocaust survivors'. Russia is not only failing to
give submarines and hi-tech weapons to Ukraine as Germany gives Israel.
But Russia has approved military force in Ukraine. The stark difference
between the Holocaust and the Holodomor!
Double edged sword
the lull until a new government and proper police is formed, Right
Sector elements and other right wing movements are removing symbols of
Communism and Russian Imperialism. They are spreading their influence in
Ukraine's western regions and also influencing religious leaders. In
itself the implementation of a third position is positive, but at the
same time this lull can also be exploited by Russia. So, the faster the
right implement conservative pro Ukrainian positions the bigger the
culture shock for pro-Russian regions.
Spheres of influence
Statues falling and certain attitude by the Right shows that right wing
influence is increasing in Ukraine. However such attitudes will give
the opportunity for Russia to secure 'Russian Descendants' and their
interests, irrelevant if the other 40% of Crimea may feel insecure under
Russian military control. The Ukrainian military can never be a match
to the Russian killing machine if Russia orders a Blitzkrieg. The flat
terrain is a Ukrainian disadvantage and historically big armies have
always moved quickly on that terrain. But this does not guarantee a
smooth Russian occupation.
Nobody knows how many military
hardened civilians are in Ukraine. Reports indicate that hundreds, if
not thousands, ex-military and civilian combatants from the Afghan war,
Caucuses and Syrian conflicts are in Ukraine now. Ukrainian private
military contractors taking part in international security operations
are also part of recent history. Vietnam had shown that a war is won by
people and strategies not by military might.
Which sides these
military hardened civilians are taking or if they want to participate
all remains to be seen. As the west 'indirectly' helped Syria, it may
also help Ukraine though this kind of help may not go to genuine groups.
It would rather go to groups whose outcome of their actions will likely
fit in the international finance's agenda.
The Ukrainian military capability lies in its street movements and militias that can drag Russia into a low intensity conflict.
The possible outcome if hostilities takes place
war is won by the sympathy of the people and whilst the majority was
against Yanukovych the same can be applied to the right. Its a very thin
line between third way implementation and provocation. In the long run
Russia can be drawn into another Afghanistan should the people of
Ukraine decide to go into a low intensity conflict. This may benefit the
Great European Reconquista since such a conflict will weaken Russian
Imperialism and attract more support/ sympathy from Central and Western
Europe. It can also weakens Europe beyond repair.
Two pronged European revolution
is a two pronged revolution in Europe along the lines of nationalism.
The first is the nationalism everyone is familiar with that is rising
fast in Eastern Europe, namely in Ukraine, Hungary and Greece, followed
by Sweden, the Baltic States and Poland. The second is the regional type
of 'nationalism', or regionalism which is similar to nationalism, but
rather then for nations, for the emerging regions. Catalonia, Flanders,
Bavaria just to mention a few.
Crimea and Sevastopol belong to
the emerging regions, yet that does not mean they are going to quit the
Ukrainian Nation. More autonomy for these regions may satisfy both the
Ukrainian and Crimean authorities. Although there are armoured vehicles
in Sevastopol and two people have accidentally died in a stampede,
another brothers' war can still be avoided.
It is important that
Ukrainians see the Crimean issue in its true nature and juxtapose it to
what is happening in Europe. Whilst Russian influence is a factor, the
organic formation of Crimea is a distinct possibility. So even without
Russian influence, Crimea would have pushed for more autonomy since we
are living in the time of the emerging regions. People of different
European cultures are organically forming around the oldest European
regions, and a natural path that deserves to be respected by pro nature
A mix of Nation States and Regions?
way support is most welcome in Eastern Europe. The mobilisation of
middle and working classes is very possible as was the case with Maidan.
It is still unclear how these states will interact with each-other if
the nationalists come to power in Ukraine, Hungary and the rest.
Friendship or division is the issue, however bi-lateral agreements can
be agreed upon.
In western Europe the emerging regions can come
together as one entity: Nova Europa. Eventually as more regions join
Nova Europa and the foundations of an Empire will be strong enough and
be respected by the blocs, Imperium Europa will be declared.
Nationalists may view Imperium Europa as a threat but is it?
What can happen if Imperium Europa does not materialise?
Imperium Europa does not materialise the emerging regions will not bond
together. They will likely be absorbed by other nations whose financial
systems and state structures are already controlled by the elite. For
example Flanders may be absorbed by the Netherlands and Wallonia by
France, both nations infested with third world cultures and financial
systems that can never free themselves on their own. If France tries to
free itself from the system, the neighbouring states whose financial
structures are controlled by the same elite, will declare war on
'Apartheid' France. And the same can be said for other nations desiring
to be free. So through nationalism as we know it, Europe can never free
itself from the financial elite that controls it. The regions are not
themselves controlled since their control is coming from the nation
states. However if they gain independence, they will be too weak on
their own and be absorbed by one of the blocs, like Crimea is risking
now. When a region is absorbed its most important laws will be imposed
by a bloc hence enslaving it once more.
The only way out
only way out of this system of two blocs is by genuine nationalist
movements willing to co-operate with the emerging trend of the regions.
If nations wage war on regions the declining European population will
continue dwindling. So while minor conflicts can occur if the situation
goes out of hand, disaster will strike the old continent once more. If
scores of regions will come together, they will be able to resist global
pressure from the two blocks. Currently Ukraine is withstanding this
pressure. But at what strain and for how long? The answers would have
been easy if a Genuine European Empire was standing.
