An active participant of the Russian Spring, as well as the Georgian War, Yan Gagin, commenting on the recent story of US flags flying above UAF positions at the frontline in the LPR, posted a large collection of interesting photos from a personal archive dedicated to the role of the United States and Ukrainian Nazis in the 2008 Georgian-Russian war.
“The American flag was raised above Ukrainian positions in Donbass
The management of the LPR People’s Militia reported that the Ukrainian military raised flags of the US above its positions near several settlements. The press service of the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic noted that this happened on the eve of the arrival of an American journalist.
According to intelligence reports, the order to hang American flags in the area of the settlements of Mironovskoye and Krimskoye was given by the commanders of the 59th and 14th brigades Colonel Gennady Shapovalov and Colonel Sergey Voichenko.
The LPR has information that the American journalist Wayne Hoffman from the known New York Times arrived at the positions of the Ukrainian military personnel.”
The report that the American flag was raised over Ukrainian positions in Donbass was promptly reacted to by security expert and military-political analyst Yan Gagin.
“So it turned out that I had to visit many hot spots in Russia and beyond. But everywhere, in every conflict, under the sensitive leadership of the same special services, Ukrainians participated. They were both personnel military, Ukrainian intelligence officers, and neo-Nazi volunteers…
A prime example is the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict (August 7th 2008). The fighting that took place in August 2008 between Georgia, on the one hand, and the self-proclaimed republics of South Ossetia and the Republic of Abkhazia, as well as Russia, on the other. The Georgian armed forces carried out the massacre and genocide of the South Ossetian people.
The masters themselves took part in that war (the United States sent its trainers, military equipment, and property to Georgia), as well as an entire international (or rather, as usual, after all, by attacking South Ossetia, they attacked Russia in its face).
So I am not surprised by the regular flying of American flags by representatives of the UAF and Ukrainian nationalists on an equal basis with the flags of fascist Germany, which is usual for the descendants and successors of ‘the very same auxiliary policemen’.
The need to train ‘cannon fodder’ from Ukraine, Georgia, Poland, Bulgaria, and other ‘former brothers’ in the military academies of the United States and Great Britain. isn’t surprising.
There are among such ‘lucky people’ are my former comrades in the naval lyceum of Nakhimov P.S.
It is not surprising the joy of the presidents of the ‘former brotherly countries’ when they receive a label from the President of the United States to rule in their country, because all of them are waiting for approval from there,” believes Gagin.
According to him, the same company actively, with weapons in its hands, defends the interests of the United States and NATO in all conflicts around the world, turning its armed forces into some pocket NATO PMC, receiving back killed and maimed sons.
“Unfortunately, all these ‘former brothers of ours’, like stray dogs who arrived to a new master, do not understand that their master will not take them to a happy future, as he needs them only as a resource, both natural and human. An American soldier only enters the battle after ‘our former brothers’ shed blood on the ground. The United States and NATO have been fighting Russia for years with the hands of its ‘former brothers’ – on the battlefield and in media space. The rise of the flags of the United States by the armed forces of Ukraine and their other brothers speaks only of the absence of statehood and domestic political guidelines,” said the expert in the field of security and military-political analyst.
Yan Gagin recalled the history of relations between Ukraine and NATO.
In November 1998 the former President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma signed the Program of Cooperation between Ukraine and NATO.
In April 1999 the NATO Embassy opened in Kiev. And in June of that year Ukraine supported the bloc’s operation in the Balkans, closing its airspace for Russian aircraft flying to Pristina.
In 2000, for the first time in NATO history, the annual North Atlantic Council meeting took place outside the alliance, in Kiev.
In 2002 Leonid Kuchma concluded the “Individual Partnership Plan with NATO”.
Cooperation between Ukraine and NATO on the Partnership for Peace programme started on February 8th 1994.
On October 21st-28th 1994, as part of the NATO Partnership for Peace programme, exercises were held on the territory of the Netherlands by the land forces of Great Britain, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, the United States, Germany, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Ukraine, and Estonia.
The purpose of the exercise was to organise cooperation in the platoon-company communication during peacekeeping operations. Military exercises of units and soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with the participation of troops and NATO-member military units started in 1995. In the future they took place on the territory of Ukraine, in the water area of the Black Sea, and on the territory of other states.
From 1995 to 2002 Ukraine and the United States conducted Peace Shield exercises every year (in 2003 they were held once more under the name Peace Shield 2003).
In August 1995 Ukraine sent a reinforced platoon (50 troops) to the Joint Combat Training Centre to participate in “Cooperative Nugget 95” exercise in Louisiana.
From 1996 the annual exercises “Cossack Steppe” and “Cossack Express” started.
In 1997 the command and staff exercise “Cooperative Neighbor 1997” took place. In the same year, the annual naval exercise “Sea Breeze” started (but they were not annual – from 1997 to the end of 2014, 12 exercises were held and they were disrupted twice).
On July 9th 1997 NATO and Ukraine signed a “Special Partnership Charter”.
A “Status of Forces Agreement” was signed in 2000.
In 2002 NATO and Ukraine adopted a NATO-Ukraine action plan. After that, “Cooperative Adventure 2002” exercises were held on the territory of Ukraine, which became the largest NATO exercises on the territory of the CIS countries.
Since 2004 joint Canadian-Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian military exercises “Maple Arc” have been regularly held. Since the victory of the “Orange Revolution” in 2004 and the coming to power of President Viktor Yushchenko, cooperation with NATO has intensified.
From 2005 to 2006 Ukraine participated in five to six exercises with NATO countries each year: During 2007 Ukraine participated in 17 multinational military exercises (including NATO open exercises for partner countries and NATO Partnership for Peace exercises).
After the election of President V.F. Yanukovych, the process of integration between Ukraine and NATO slowed down:
- On April 2nd 2010 V.F. Yanukovych liquidated the inter-departmental commission to prepare the country for NATO membership and the national centre for Euro-Atlantic integration;
- In September 2011 V.F. Yanukovych made a statement that Ukraine will remain a non-bloc state, will not participate in the creation of a European missile defence system, and does not intend to join NATO;
- In 2013 V.F. Yanukovych signed the Law “On the Foundations of Domestic and Foreign Policy”, which formalised Ukraine’s non-bloc status and Ukraine’s refusal to integrate into the NATO bloc. Since the change of power in 2014, cooperation with NATO has intensified again.
On March 12th 2014 the Ukrainian military delegation left for NATO headquarters in Brussels to discuss “directions of strengthening cooperation” between Ukraine and NATO.
On April 1st 2014 the Verkhovna Rada supported the draft law on approval of the decision of the President of Ukraine on the admission of units of the armed forces of other states to the territory of Ukraine.
“In 2014, in order to participate in multinational exercises, Ukraine, as a policeman on the territory occupied by fascists throughout its history, from the beginning of the 90s has been proving its allegiance to the United States and NATO.
The main place of proof is wars and local conflicts in which Russia takes part. The NATO bloc was created to counter and fight the USSR and remains the enemy of its successor, Russia.
Here Ukraine tries at any opportunity to ‘bite’ its brother, to please its new masters.
There is a similar situation with other ‘former brothers’ – both under the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union. Most of our ‘brothers’ prove their loyalty to their new masters with their blood, and their masters, nodding patronisingly, accept these sacrifices,” said Yan Gagin.
