The hyper-nationalist Ukrainian-Israeli billionaire Ihor Kolomoysky, a friend of the Obama White House and employer of Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, is a major donor to far-right Ukrainian causes. He sides with the followers of Stepan Bandera, the pro-Nazi Ukrainian leader whom Hitler ditched when Bandera made clear that he wanted Ukraine to be nazi but independent of Germany’s Nazi Party. Briefly, Bandera’s #2 in command, Yaroslav Stetsko, led nazi Ukraine, and approved the slaughter of thousands of Jews there. He clearly stated his view, that:
“Moscow and Jewry are Ukraine’s greatest enemies and bearers of corruptive Bolshevik international ideas. Although I consider Moscow, which is in fact Ukraine held in captivity, and not Jewry, to be the main and decisive enemy, I nonetheless fully appreciate the undeniably harmful and hostile role of the Jews, who are helping Moscow to enslave Ukraine. I therefore support the destruction of the Jews.”
Kolomoysky’s financial support goes not only to Andrei Biletsky’s nazi Azov Battalion, but also to other far-right Ukrainian anti-Russian Battalions, including Aydar Battalion, shown in this video, from which, stills are presented below, with explanations:
Here is a Battalion-member proudly displaying his Nazi flag with Swastika:
Here is the side of an Aydar van, with some Roman letters celebrating the 1940-1944, Hitler-established regiments of the non-German volunteers to Germany’s Waffen SS, and sporting the “1488” symbol that especially honors Aryan women who “Heil Hitler.” It also shows the shield with the crossed clubs, which was designed by the famous Nazi sadist Oscar Dirlewanger:
And a wider view:
Here are some Battalion members, on duty, giving the Sieg Heil! salute:
And here they are doing that off-duty:
The proud Jew Kolomoysky finances these nazis’ killing-operations.
“Kolomoyski is a prominent supporter of Ukraine’s Jewish community and the president of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine. In 2010 he was appointed as the president of the European Council of Jewish Communities after promising the outgoing president he would donate $14 million, with his appointment being described as a ‘putsch' and a ‘Soviet-style takeover' by other EJCJ board members. After several ECJC board members resigned in protest, Kolomyski quit the ECJC and, together with fellow Ukrainian oligarch Vadim Rabinovich, founded the European Jewish Union.”
Those things show: ideology is far more important than is ethnicity (or ethnic background).
Like the Black Barack Obama, the Jew Ihor Kolomoysky is fascist, if not outright nazi (racist-fascist) in his actual ideology. (Both of them have shown by their actions, that they hate Russians and are willing to endanger the entire world in order to slake their hatred, their bigotry. For example, Kolomoysky was a key part of the Obama team that planned and organized the massacre of pro-Russian pamphleteers in the Odessa Trade Unions Building on 2 May 2014, which terrified Ukraine’s pro-Russians, and thus ignited Ukraine’s civil war — as it was intended to do.)
Stereotypes of ethnicity do not indicate what a person actually believes. They are perhaps even less indicative of that than are what the person mouths to be his beliefs. For examples: neither Obama nor Kolomoysky publicly declares himself to be even fascist, much less nazi (racist-fascist). And part of fascism is The Big Lie.
Therefore, in politics, one must look beyond the surface, but most people don’t — and that’s the problem. Taking things at ‘face value’ is what makes broad masses of people manipulable (herdable) by the aristocracy: herds led to their own slaughter. The public get played for their prejudices; that’s the way humans get herded, by human meat-producers, into war, to grind up others, and to be ground up, by others, depending upon who owns the factory farm. It’s Animal Farm, or 1984. It’s industrial-grade politics.
