Ukraine's Yatsenyuk, Right Sector's Yarosh Fan War Hysteria
April 26, 2014 • 3:40PM

Following reports of Russian military exercises near the Ukrainian-Russian border, Ukraine's illegitimate Prime Minister, Arseniy "Yats" Yatsenyuk, charged Russia with wanting to start World War III, and issued urgent calls for international aid to stop "Russian aggression," the London Telegraph reported today.

World War III—yes, but it's the British Queen who's pushing it.

"The aggressive efforts of Russian military on Ukrainian soil will lead to a conflict on European soil," he warned in a televised cabinet meeting. "Russia's support for the terrorists in Ukraine constitutes an international crime, and we call on the international community to unite against the international aggression."

The Washington Post opened its pages today to Yatsenyuk, who, in an interview with Lally Weymouth, continued to spew out more wild and unsubstantiated charges against Russia—egged on by Weymouth—alleging that Vladimir Putin had "pre-planned" Ukraine's destabilization from the beginning, and fabricated charges of anti-Russian sentiment to justify intervention.

"Ukrainians who live in southern and eastern Ukraine don't support the Russian President," he argued, adding that Russian security forces lurked behind every corner in Donetsk and Luhansk, provoking unrest and violence in those cities, and ultimately to "eliminate Ukrainian independence."

Right Sector leader Dmitry Yarosh, meanwhile, has addressed an open letter to acting Ukrainian President Turchinov warning that he "must start immedidate mass armament of our citizens, in particular patriotic volunteer squads which in the Dnepropetrovsk Region alone have seen 10,000 Ukrainians enlisted." Voice of Russia reported Yarosh's admonition to Turchinov, "you must be fully aware of the responsibility that falls on your shoulders."
