Washington D.C. – On the second anniversary of the neo-Nazi-led turmoil that led to the downfall of Ukraine’s elected government, the U.S. State Department hailed those 2014 events as a “revolution of dignity.”Deputy Department spokesperson Mark C. Toner issued a statement Feb. 20 calling the reactionary takeover a “European choice.”

Before the turmoil that rocked the Ukraine in February 2014, the U.S. government spent more than $5 billion to promote instability in the country. Standing at the head of the reactionary protests were groups like Right Sector and Svoboda, which have their roots in the most right wing of Ukraine’s political currents. They see themselves as the political heirs of the Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera, an anti-communist, anti-Semitic butcher who first did Hitler’s bidding and then went on to be a servant of the CIA.

The Ukraine is rich in natural resources and occupies an important strategic location. Its government, currently dominated by the U.S. and the European Union, continues to face a determined popular resistance.
