Natalia Vitrenko Issues Statement to Russian, Chinese, Indian Presidents

Ukrainian political leader Dr. Natalia Vitrenko issued a statement May 2, the day of the Odessa massacre in which dozens of pro-federalist protesters hiding in a public building were incinerated by fascist militias who set the building on fire, publicly supported by the Kiev regime.

Dr. Vitrenko appealed to the Presidents of Russia, China, and India for help to the people of Ukraine because Nazis are in power, and they came to power with U.S. and EU support. She writes that she and her colleagues who head various parties and organizations had warned the UN, the European institutions, and the leaders of the U.S.A. and the EU, "about the inevitability of monstrous crimes," because of the way in which the people who carried out the coup mobilized with slogans like "Ukraine for Ukrainians," "Stab the Muscovites," and "Glory to the Nation — Death to the Enemies."

Russia to Address Council of Europe: Postpone Ukraine Election

With fighting raging today between Kiev regime armed forces and the pro-federalist opposition in a number of eastern Ukraine cities, RIA Novosti reported that Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia will appeal to the UN and the Strasbourg-based Council of Europe to postpone Ukraine's supposed Presidential election from May 25. The Council of Europe is meeting May 5-6 in Vienna, and RIA Novosti said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will "take part in debate" there on May 6, including on this subject.

Kiev Sends Nazi Right Sector to Replace Odessa Police

Following the thorough and in-person endorsement by Victoria Nuland's Ukrainian Prime Minister "Yats" for the May 2 massacre in Odessa, Ukraine regime Interior Minister Avakov has effectively deployed a new police force of Right Sector thugs to the Black Sea city.

The Christian Science Monitor and other media reported that Avakov announced Kiev has sent a "citizen activists' police force" to Odessa, called the "Kiev Police Battalion #1." In Odessa May 3, Yatsenyuk had expressed fury at the Odessa police for not immediately and forcefully suppressing pro-Russian protests in the city; thus the new fascist police formation. The Monitor says this force has come out of "mass recruitment on Kiev's Maidan for a national guard," and is "likely to play into fears in the East and South of the country about 'fascists.'"

Party of the European Left says Obama and the EU fostered "Nazi State" in Ukraine

The "Odessa massacre" has shaken up some people of the old European left into action. Yesterday's edition of the French Communist newspaper l'Humanité, ran the headline: "War Threatens in Ukraine, the Tanks Must Be Stopped," showing a photo of the tanks sent by the Kiev putschists against the pro-Russian populations in eastern Ukraine, with the lead editorial accusing the EU and U.S. of "unleashing neo-Nazi militias."

Also, in an official statement on their website, the Party of the European Left (EL) accused the U.S. and the EU of "fostering...a Nazi state" in Ukraine. The Brussels-based EL is a coalition of most Communist parties of the EU, and parties that split from the Socialist International.
