The Ukrainian CIA connection Kyiv Post, 25Oct2011; Askold Lozynskyj [W.Z., comments; Kuzio article]
- My two comments on these two controversial articles include:
In the early 1990s, Ivan Drach (and other dissidents) visited Montreal several times. It was touching to see little old lady pensioners slipping him $20.00 bills in gratitude for helping usher in Ukraine's independence. He also attended the 18Oct2003 Edmonton lecture by Olya Odynsky on the "denaturalization and deportation" policy targeting her father, Wasyl Odynsky.
Although the analysis of Taras Kuzio of the U.S. government involvement in the affairs of the Ukrainian Diaspora is very interesting and enlightening, by no stretch of the imagination can the United States government or the various Diaspora organizations be credited with playing "a central role in Ukraine becoming independent". In my opinion, the analysis of Corson and Crowley in their 1985 book titled "The New KGB" -- outlining the evolution of the KGB under Yuri Andropov into a sophisticated political force -- foreshadows the dissolution of the USSR by the very people who had previously ruled it via terrror and brutal murder. I suspect that these people decided that transforming themselves into capitalist Oligarchs would be more rewarding than remaining faceless Communist bureaucrats.

Johnny Demjanjuk Jr. finally got to visit
his father and explained his position to the Associated Press.
- Legal sparring by the lawyers associated with the court case being heard by Judge Dan Polster has commenced.
- An article by Andriy Semotiuk on the legal aspects of the Demjanjuk case was excellent except for a reference to “noble purpose”, which raised my ire sufficiently to comment as follows:
To accuse the Jewish witnesses (as well as the prosecutorial personnel and other witnesses for the prosecution) in the 1987 Jerusalem Trial and the 2009 Munich Trial of "pursuing a noble purpose" is a disingenuous way of excusing perjury, distortion, expressions of hatred and thirst for vengeance. To suggest that the Jewish-Israeli actions and policies in dispossessing the Palestinian inhabitants of their homes and land; "ethnic cleansing" the territory via terror tactics; and then imposing a brutal military occupation of the remaining Palestinian territories in the West Bank and Gaza is "pursuing a noble purpose" is sophistry at its worst.
