The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

History lesson: CIA & Ukraine Nazis killed Soviet citizens from 1945-1951


Director of Russian Foreign Intelligence Service explains how the CIA used the Banderites against the USSR

By Essence of Time

[Ukrainian Nazi] Banderites sabotage-recon groups backed by the CIA killed about 35,000 Soviet citizens, including village teachers and doctors, as part of Operation Icon and Operation Cartel from 1945 to 1951, Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director Sergei Naryshkin wrote in his article, “75 Candles on the CIA Cake,” which was published on September 14 in National Defense magazine.

The CIA participated in the formation of Germany’s first intelligence agency, the Gehlen Organization, which relied on Nazi German agents in the USSR and Eastern Europe. This organization also recruited Nazi collaborators, including Banderites, with whom it conducted “up to a dozen programs and operations designed to conduct intelligence and undermine the military, economic and moral and psychological potential of the Soviet Union.”

According to Naryshkin, in November 1950 Frank Wisner, chief of the CIA Office of Policy Coordination, reported to his superiors that from the end of World War II to 1951, the members of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) (organization banned in Russia) and Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) (organization banned in Russia) killed about 35 thousand Soviet citizens, including Communist Party members, that is, representatives of the rural intelligentsia, including doctors and teachers.

The head of the Foreign Intelligence Service recalled that during the entire Cold War, emigrant organizations of Ukrainian neo-Nazis operated under the cover of Western intelligence agencies. The CIA controlled the so-called Ukrainian Supreme Liberation Council (UGVR), headed by former Bandera security chief Nikolay Lebed, and British MI6 controlled the OUN (organization banned in Russia), headed by Yaroslav Stetsko.

The two groups of neo-Nazis were in conflict with each other, but the conflict was not due to ideological differences, but quarrels “over the money of their masters,” the SVR head says.

It's sad how desperate people are to not hear about the strength of the far right in Ukraine. Part of it is a legacy of terrorism against It's opponents.
