VOR: Right Sector attempts to seize largest NPP in Ukraine

Policemen of the city of Energodar have detained 20 activists of the Right Sector, who tried to seize the Zaporozhye NPP. According to the leader of the Zaporozhye branch of the organization, the militants were afraid that the city would fall in the hands of supporters of federalization.

The day before, the police detained another group of radicals that two weeks ago, had captured a recreation center in the Kiev region. Unregistered machine guns, a pistol and bullets, and symbols of the Right Sector were seized from them.

Continue reading… Ukraine Crisis Goes Nuclear. The Storming of Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant by Neo-Nazis

…Ukraine’s Zaporizhia nuclear power plant with its six reactors is the largest in Europe and the fifth largest in the world. With the Chernobyl disaster in hindsight, 20 Neo-Nazi militants from Right Sector attempting to storm the facility constitutes a threat to much of Europe and western Russia – a threat NATO may be fabricating to create a pretext to more directly intervene in Ukraine…

Zaporizhia province neighbors Donetsk, which along with Luhansk province, recently held referendums leading to greater autonomy from Kiev and closer ties to neighboring Russia. Zaporizhia, laying between Donetsk and now Russian Crimea, could potentially be the next province to escape out from under the unelected regime currently occupying Kiev.

NATO’s “Nuclear Option”

The storming of Zaporizhia nuclear power plant by Neo-Nazis may appear to be an act of extreme irresponsibility carried out by witless, dangerous thugs, but the operation may have a much more sinister purpose.

A May 7 Reuters article titled, “NATO experts advise Ukraine on nuclear plant safety,” stated:

NATO experts have visited Ukraine to advise authorities there on improving the safety of nuclear power plants, gas pipelines and other critical infrastructure amid growing violence and fears of conflict with Russia, officials said on Wednesday.

The article would continue by stating:

Asked if the study was carried out because of Kiev’s fears of Russian intervention in Ukraine, Dolhov said one reason was “possible destabilisation” in an area where strategic infrastructure was located.

Ukraine told the U.N. atomic watchdog in March it was reinforcing the protection of its nuclear power plants because of “a grave threat to the security” of the country posed by the Russian military.

A rebellion in the east has raised the prospect that Ukraine, a country of around 45 million people the size of France, could be carved up or even descend into civil war.

And perhaps the most telling statement of all claimed:

Ukraine is not a member of NATO and the alliance has said it will not get involved militarily in Ukraine. But Ukraine and NATO have increased cooperation and Ukraine has asked NATO members for non-lethal equipment such as uniforms.

Indeed, Ukraine is not a NATO member, and it is almost inconceivable under what circumstances NATO troops could enter Ukrainian territory – almost inconceivable. But a threat to one or more of Ukraine’s 15 nuclear reactors might give NATO the pretext necessary to deploy troops into Ukraine, particularly in the east where Kiev is unable to assert control. While NATO cannot justify intervening in Ukraine’s internal political crisis directly, it may attempt to make a case that a nuclear catastrophe directly threatens NATO members.

“Neo-Nazi” What is that? First, Nazi, is a construct word that the lovely Communists created as an insult, just as they brought the charming word, Racist to life. But lets go with the Neo, as we have quasi-conservatives here. Is this Neo-Nazi kind of like, Nazi-Lite? Less calories, less filling?

Somehow I do not want to “BUY” this product. The real deal also gets all tangled up with notions of socialism which is stuck to Leftest Day Pollyanna Dreams…, and thus you see images of Obama portrayed as Hitler. Bizarre. I would assume Obama as Lenin, Trotsky, or Stalin. I want ALL NATURAL ingredients, not a manufactured kind of like, substitutions. First, are these Ukrainians that are Nazi Lite, really National Socialists? Meaning? Are they ardent fans of the Nation, and the People, or are they Leftists swigging, chugging their own brand of political dogma?

Second, this trotting out of NATO into the Ukraine under the guise of protecting Nuclear Power Plants is, how can you put it, INSANE! Unholy Shades of Nuclear War, Batman! I must double check the calendar & Farmer’s Almanac , maybe I missed it, that we are to have a Thermonuclear War this year? What? To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of World War One? What an overly transparent ruse.

@ lwesson,

This argument is without meaning, in that Hitler was indeed a Marxist; a man of the Left.

With regard to Ukraine’s putsch government, those who praise Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich and use Nazi symbolism indict themselves by their own words and deeds. The non-Russian parts of Ukraine does have a history of collaboration with the Third Reich.

The US government has, for some time, slipped out of the control of the electorate. We no longer have a government that enjoys the consent of the governed. That said. our government feels the need for window dressing to put a good face on things. It makes it easier for their spin doctors if they have an excuse for their ill-conceived overseas adventures.

After years of reading and reading, I do not recall a single instance of a notion that Hitler was a Marxist. None of my professors, many who were Marxists, mentioned that Hitler was also a fellow Marxist. I found “American Thinker” calling Hitler a Marxist, but that is about it. I will read their spin or take.

Collaboration with the Third Reich: The Ukraine was devastated in a murderous acts by the Communists/Soviet Union. Millions were left to starve, and countless were killed outright. All while this was going on, the Left/Communists in this country were pretty quiet. –usual– It is no small wonder that there was a wishful collaboration. A Ukrainian acquaintance would come unglued about the Communists and what they did to her Family…

What is so confusing are the goings on per the what is repeatedly called Neo-Nazi groups, US involvement… and as you say so correctly, a putsch government, one that we encouraged. The US told the original government to hold back on doing anything to the protesters. Now the US is encouraging a crackdown on the protesters. I have read snippets that we have even sent, or encouraged snipers… My Russian friends are amazed. It is as if we are spoiling for a fight.

Here at “Home” and I put quotations around Home, since we do not tend to our own on going Home crisis and actually aid those who broke our laws. Illegal Aliens are set loose amongst us. The Border is broken. Aid is given to them… unemployment, underemployment (poorly followed, on purpose) is rampant. De industrialization has hurt the populace, and yet we rattle sabers halfway across the World and do so against a Thermonuclear Power that we more in common with than in the past.

When Russia is embracing its culture, people, religion, its independence, there are those that are Hell Bent to wave off all of this, here. It sickens me. I look at the two parts of a Kamikaze that could have killed my Father in WW2 that sit next to me, and wonder what in the world is going on, really going on? So much sacrifice to come to this sorry point. Regards.—L

@ lwesson,
Perhaps I should not have called Hitler a Marxist per se.

Hitler had his differences with Marxism, to wit:

Hitler told Hermann Rauschning, a Prussian who briefly worked for the Nazis before rejecting them and fleeing the country, that he had admired much of the thinking of the revolutionaries he had known as a young man; but he felt that they had been talkers, not doers. “I have put into practice what these peddlers and pen pushers have timidly begun,” he boasted, adding that “the whole of National Socialism” was “based on Marx”.

Marx’s error, Hitler believed, had been to foster class war instead of national unity – to set workers against industrialists instead of conscripting both groups into a corporatist order. His aim, he told his economic adviser, Otto Wagener, was to “convert the German Volk to socialism without simply killing off the old individualists” – by which he meant the bankers and factory owners who could, he thought, serve socialism better by generating revenue for the state. “What Marxism, Leninism and Stalinism failed to accomplish,” he told Wagener, “we shall be in a position to achieve.”

That said, Hitler was definitely a socialist.
