Helga Zepp-LaRouche.

The following is a translation of a statement written in German by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, founder of the Schiller Institute and chairwoman of the German political party Bürgerrechtsbewegung Solidarität (BüSo)

It's a disgrace to the so-called western "community of shared values"! Sixty-nine years after the end of World War II in Europe, and the solemn pledge made at the time—"Never Again!"—the U.S. Administration, the European Union, and NATO are openly backing Nazis in Ukraine, and are pursuing a policy of encirclement of Russia and China, which can practically be considered preparation for a war of aggression. The gruesome massacre in Odessa, in which over 40 people were burned alive, is the evil fruit of Washington's and Brussels' support of the Nazi coup d'état in Kiev.

Put in the best light, the EU's lust for expansion blinded it to the profound domestic divisions which exploded as a result of the EU's Nov. 22 ultimatum. In the worst light, the Obama Administration, NATO, and the EU deliberately staged the Nazi coup in Kiev because they believe, and continue to believe, that any measure is justified, so long as it pushes NATO right up to Russia's borders.

The fact is that the "Right Sector," Svoboda, et al. are Nazi groups with an unbroken tradition going back to the Nazi collaborators of Stepan Bandera of the 1940s, who were never prosecuted for their crimes against 100,000 Jews, Poles, and Ukrainians. Instead, these Nazis were seamlessly taken over by Allen Dulles, the CIA, MI6, and the Gehlen Organization of West Germany's intelligence service, the BND, and were deployed for the beginnings of the Cold War against the Soviet Union. During the time when Europe was divided by the Iron Curtain, these networks were chiefly run from the West as part of the "Captive Nations" organization, and on the heels of the collapse of the Soviet Union, they immediately began a recruitment drive in various East European countries.

This background explains why U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland—wife of the neo-conservative Robert Kagan and former colleague of Dick Cheney—is so enamored with "Yats" as Ukraine's transitional Prime Minister—a man who had no scruples integrating Svoboda and "Right Sector" members into his administration, as well as into Ukraine's army, national guard, and militias.

Meanwhile, the lock-stepping mainstream media in the West have shaped themselves into an instrument of war propaganda, pushing a policy which is leading us to the brink of humanity's thermonuclear extinction. Their blanket dismissal as "Russian propaganda" of all reports about the Ukrainian Nazis' barbaric crimes, proves but one thing: these media outlets' affinity with those whose acts they are covering up.

We in Germany have suffered two world wars on our territory, and we don't want a third! Germany only has a future if it cooperates with Russia, China, and the other nations of Eurasia. Let us renew the solemn oath: "War Never Again! Fascism Never Again!"
