In 2014, Ukraine’s democratically elected government, led by then President Viktor Yanukovic, suffered a coup d’état conceived by imperialism, aimed at removing Ukraine from a position of neutrality and positioning it alongside the USA and its Western allies, taking it the fight against Russia, making it a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the military arm of imperialism. The coup was carried out by the Euromaidan movement, composed of neo-Nazi guiding forces, such as the infamous Azov Battalion, and the Mafia oligarchy in Ukraine.
Among the atrocities committed by the Euromaidan, the dante fire of the House of Trade Unions in the city of Odessa, caused by molotov bombs thrown at the building by neo-Nazis, on May 2, 2014, is alive in everyone’s memory.

The arson was started by neo-Nazis who threw molotov bombs at the building. And inside the House of Trade Unions there were many people and union members. Those who tried to escape from the flames were hit with sticks or machine guns, on the doors of the building or on the street. Very few people were saved from this horrific crime. The terrible images of these facts traveled the world through TV stations and social networks.
May 9 is celebrated as the Victory Day over Nazism in World War II by the Russian Federation and other countries.
On that day, in 2014, in the city of Mariupol, an important port on the Sea of Azov, protesters celebrated Victory Day with a peaceful and orderly march.
They remembered that the city had been occupied, between 1941 and 1943, and practically destroyed by the German army, being, later, reconstructed by the then Soviet Union.
It was enough for the Ukrainian neo-Nazi forces to attack the demonstrators with tanks of war, weapons of various calibers, causing dozens of deaths and injuries.

When many countries allow themselves to be seduced by the siren calls of extreme right groups, it is significant to remember that Nazi-fascism, in its various branches, only produces violence, murders, hunger, misery.
Nowadays Ukrainian neo-Nazis, supported by American imperialism and their allies, continue the war against the Donestk and Lugansk People’s Republics that do not accept fascist rule.
Civilization must defeat barbarism.
