Ukrainian Journalist in 2014 Calls for the Extermination of 1.5 Million Superfluous People in Donbass

This chilling video turned up on the ‘Tom’ channel on YouTube yesterday. I don’t know who ‘Tom’ is, but his channel seems to be devoted to supporting Russia’s war. At the moment he’s posting videos casting doubt on the reports of Russian war crimes in Bucha. Some of these are from western sources, others from RT, which, as an instrument of the Russian government, can’t really be trusted.

This is a clip from a Ukrainian broadcaster, Hromadske.tv from 2014. There a journalist states that there are parts of the Ukraine that are severely overpopulated, such as the town of Donetsk. This has a population of 4 million, 1.5 of which he says are ‘superfluous’ and should be exterminated. He also states that the Donbass, one of the most heavily industrialised regions in the country, is Ukrainian and should be exploited for the benefit of Ukraine.

This is clearly being put up now to support the Russian accusation that the Ukrainian government are fascists. They aren’t. The fascists are there, but they’re supported by only a minuscule number of Ukrainians and Zelensky himself is not only a moderate but also Jewish. It wouldn’t surprise if there is, alongside the profound historic ties between Ukraine and Russia, also a deep-seated hatred stemming from the Holodomor. This was an artificial famine created by Stalin during the purges and collectivisation of agriculture in the 1930s. Seven million Ukrainians died. And the real Fascists of the Azov battalion have led Ukrainian armed attacks against the Russian and the Russian-speaking Ukrainian breakaway regions.

I support Ukraine in this war and utterly condemn Putin’s invasion. But I feel there are aspects that we are not being told about in the west. Hence I’m putting up this video. See what you make of it.

    OFF TOPIC: Any information on what is going on in Hull?. According to Msn, a veteran local Labour councillor and former Mayor has been dropped by the party for forthcoming local elections and has decided to run as an independent.

      Interesting. I have no idea. A month ago the Labour MP for south Bristol faced a vote on reselection in the constituency Labour party. She won. I was intending to go to the meeting to find out what it was all about, but unfortunately got the day wrong. She’s a Starmerite, so it’s unlikely to be over something like the anti-Semitism smear campaign.

      Ah – I’ve just found it on the news page of the Net – the politico in question claims he was deselected because of a Corbynite’ coup. It’s in Hull LLive, and begins:
      ‘A Labour city councillor says he was left with no choice but to stand as an independent candidate in May’s elections after being deselected in the ward he has represented for nearly 20 years. Councillor Sean Chaytor claims he was the victim of a coup orchestrated by party members who still support former leader Jeremy Corbyn.

      Rival Patrick Wilkinson was selected ahead of him in a ward meeting last November to stand as Labour’s candidate in Marfleet. A former Lord Mayor of Hull, Cllr Chaytor has now decided to stand as an independent even though he remains a Labour member.

      He said today he expected the party to take disciplinary action against him. He said: “I haven’t moved away from the Labour Party, the party has moved away from me. When the Corbynites and certain trade unionists decide to come after you, they’re not bothered about what happens until they achieve their political ends.”‘

        The news story I read seemed to think, mistakenly, he was another victim of Starmer’s gestapo. It makes a nice change for the good guys to prevail, but I doubt is Starmer’s gestapo are going to allow the branch to get away with it!
