C. EFTER KUPPEN

Hur gick det sedan – när USA fått sina män från Fäderneslandsförbundet på posterna som premiärminister och talman, tillförordnad president och ÖB, samt en Svobodamedlem som riksåklagare?

Efter den 22-25 februari har utvecklingen i Kiev och övriga Ukraina fortsatt i riktning mot hot och våld, laglöshet och förtryck.

Det skulle föra alltför långt att här ta upp konkreta exempel ur den ryska vitboken, jag nöjer med att återge dess sammanfattning:

”The facts set forth above clearly demonstrate that under the influence of extremists from ultranationalistic and neo-Nazi forces, and with the active multidimensional support of the USA and the European Union and its members, the protests in Ukraine which bore an initially peaceful character rapidly escalated into a coercive rebellion and, in the end, the forceful seizure of power and an unconstitutional coup d’etat..  These dramatic events were accompanied by widespread and gross violations of human rights and freedoms on the part of the self-proclaimed government and its supporters. As a result, manifestations of extremist, ultranationalist, and neo-Nazistic sentiments, religious intolerance, xenophobia, blatant blackmail, threats, pressure placed by the Maidan leaders on their opponents, ’purges’ and arrests amongst them, repression, physical violence, and sometimes plain criminal lawlessness have become commonplace in Ukraine.

In all of Ukraine’s regions, but especially in the southeastern part of the country, Ukrainian radical nationalists, instructed by the de facto authorities in Kiev and their external patrons, are ramping up the pressure on Russian-speaking citizens who do not want to lose the centuries-old ties that bind them to Russia and Russian culture. Moreover, affairs are being conducted Maidan-style – through the use of threats, intimidation, physical violence, and heinous attempts to obliterate Russian culture and identity among the inhabitants of these regions of Ukraine.

Unfortunately, all of the gross human rights violations and violations of the principle of the rule of law that have been committed and are still being committed remain unpunished. Moreover, the bandits from Euromaidan who, weapons in hand, committed atrocities against the legal authorities and citizens have been amnestied by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and declared national heroes. We are convinced that if the lawlessness in Ukraine continues, the situation may erupt into a serious threat to regional peace and security and lead to further escalation of international and interethnic contraditions and conflicts in Ukraine and Europe in general.

We hope that this fact will finally be recognized in the relevant international organizations, which in accordance with their mandates must contribute to the conducting of objective and non-politicized investigations into the numerous violations of human rights and the principle of the rule of law in Ukraine. The perpetrators must be duly punished. Otherwise, extremists of all stripes and colors will receive a dangerous signal of encouragement.”

Sedan dess har ju våldet i Ukraina eskalerat på ett dramatiskt sätt.

Den 2 maj massakern i Odessa, nu det fullskaliga kriget mot befolkningen i Donetsk.

Kan en stat med så grova brott mot mänskliga rättigheter vara ens påtänkt att släppas in som medlem i EU?!

B. MAKTSKIFTET

4. Utländska erkännanden

Tyskland, Frankrike och Polen hade funnits med och medlat fram överenskommelsen mellan president Janukovytj och oppositionspartierna den 21 februari. Därmed skulle de medverka som garanter av att överenskommelsen genomfördes.

treland

Därav blev dock intet. Istället accepterade man oppositionens maktövertagande.

”February 21, 2014. The European Union actually gave up its obligations as a guarantor of the execution of the agreement between the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and the Ukrainian opposition leaders, signed on February 21, 2014, under the mediation of foreign ministers of Germany, France and Poland. 

Thus, the EU supported and accepted the illegitimate rise of the opposition to power in Kiev, and directly contributed to the attack against the constitutional order in Ukraine.”

USA

På samma sätt agerade USA. Washington förklarade den 22 februari att avlägsnandet av den valde presidenten i Ukraina var ett fullbordat faktum.

”February 22, 2014. Shortly after the coup in Kiev, the U.S. announced the removal of the legitimately elected President of Ukraine as a ’fait accompli’ and recognized the ’legitimacy’ of the self-proclaimed authorities, headed by Oleksandr Turchinov and Arseniy Yatsenyuk. 

On March 4, 2014, the Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kiev to pay his respects and show his support.”

eu

Den 21 mars undertecknades den politiska överenskommelsen om EU-associering av Ukraina.

”March 21, 2014. The political agreement on the EU-Ukraine Association was signed as part of the European Council meeting. On behalf of Ukraine, the document was signed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk, appointed as the Prime Minister by the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada. 

Thus, the EU recognized de jure the current illegitimate government of Ukraine and officially confirmed their willingness to work with it, bypassing the legally elected Viktor Yanukovych, who under the Constitution of Ukraine is still the official head of the state.”

B. MAKTSKIFTET

3. Riksdagsbeslut

Maktskiftet markerades av ett antal beslut i den ukrainska riksdagen den 22 och 23 februari 2014. Dessa beslut inramades av:

•  dels att den valde presidenten, Viktor Janukovytj, hade lämnat landet

• dels att riksdagsledamöter ur Regionernas Parti och Kommunistpartiet utsattes för hot och våld.

”Paet also noted that in Ukraine, there is very strong pressure on the members of parliament. He said that journalists saw armed men beat a deputy in broad daylight in front of the Verkhovna Rada.”

regparti

”It is significant to note that the entire subsequent period was marked by massive intimidation of  Verkhovna Rada deputies from the ruling Party of Regions and the Communist Party members by the supporters of Euromaidan.

The central office the Communist Party newspaper in Kiev was sacked, as well as the Kiev offices of the Municipal Committee of the Communist Party, and the Pechersk and Sviatoshynskyi district committees of the Communist Party in Kiev.

Almost all the regional committees of the Communist Party were seriously damaged, but especially the ones in Zhytomyr, Chernihiv, Sumy, Vinnytsia, Volyn, Rivne oblast, and all district committees. The regional and city offices in Volyn and Lutsk and many other party premises were taken over by illegal armed groups.”

radan

Var riksdagen fulltalig då de viktiga besluten togs?

Eller var det mer i stil med ”Machtübernahme” i Berlin 1933?

”The Communist Party, remaining a legal parliamentary party, was actually forced to shut down. Given the threat of deadly violence a large majority of the Communist Party faction in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine moved to the Crimea or Russia.”

”The remaining few Communist Party MPs in Parliament protested against the lawlessness in the country and did not participate in voting.”

Beslut som togs:

vrot

Volodymyr Rybak från Regionernas parti, var talman i den ukrainska riksdagen sedan mitten av december 2013. Den 22 februari avgick han, och efterträddes av Oleksandr Turchynov.

”February 22, 2014. The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine V. Rybak (Party of Regions) tendered his resignation due to illness and the need for treatment (according to unofficial data, the reason for his departure became fear for his safety). O. Turchynov (AUU Batkivshchyna) was elected the the new Speaker of the Ukrainian parliament.”

Avgick gjorde även vice talmannen, Ihor Kaletnik, från kommunistpartiet.

”The first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, member of the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) I. Kaletnik, also penned his resignation.”

Den 23 februari utsågs den nye talmanen, Turchynov, också till interrimspresident, fram till den 25 maj.

”The decision was made in the Verkhovna Rada to appoint Speaker O. Turchynov as interim President of Ukraine for the period up to May 25, 2014. After that, the legitimate President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, who was forced to leave the country because of threats to his life and the lives of his family, said during a press conference in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, on 28 February 2014, that he was still the legitimate head of the Ukrainian state, elected by the free will of its citizens, noting also that none of the conditions stipulated by the Constitution of Ukraine on the early termination of Presidential powers (including resignation, illness, death, or impeachment) were followed properly.”

Den 24 februari utsågs Oleg Machnizki från Svobodapartiet till ny riksåklagare.

Den 25 februari utsågs Oleksandr Turchynov dessutom till Överbefälhavare.

Turchynov is the current Chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament and acting President of Ukraine after  Viktor Yanukovychwas removed from power by the parliament on 21 February 2014 On 25 February Turchynov assumed the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. 

Turchynov is the first deputy chairman of the political party Batkivshchyna (All-Ukrainian Union ”Fatherland”) and close associate of the western-backed political figure, Yulia Tymoshenko.”

Wikipedia:

”The Ukrainian parliament voted on 22 February to remove him from his post on the grounds that he was unable to fulfill his duties although the legislative removal lacked the required votes according to the constitution in effect at the time.Parliament set an election for 25 May to select his replacementand two days later issued a warrant for his arrest, accusing him of ’mass killing of civilians.’

Following his departure, Yanukovych has conducted several press conferences. He declared himself to still be ’the legitimate head of the Ukrainian state elected in a free vote by Ukrainian citizens’.
