The Azov Battalion and Right Sector are Ukrainian neo-Nazi groups. Before dismissing the idea of the CIA funding Nazis in Ukraine, Western Ukraine allied with Nazi Germany in World War II. Nazi Ukrainians committed an unpunished genocide against ethnic Poles in Galicia during World War II.
Canada and Ukrainian Nazi
Prominent Ukrainian Nazis, like Michael Chomiak, were able to begin new lives in countries like Canada. Chomiak’s granddaughter is currently the Deputy Prime Minister of Canada (Chrystia Freeland):
Chomiak was allowed to emigrate to Alberta in 1948 despite being wanted by Poland. Freeland dismissed the accusations as “Russian misinformation,” despite archives in Canada confirming Chomiak was a Ukrainian Nazi who collaborated with genocide, serving as a propgandist.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau autographed a Nazi flag:
The Nazi flag spotted in Ottawa during the Freedom Convoy was flown from the balcony of a hotel Canadian RCMP officers were staying:
Canadian RCMP officers described an incident in which an officer trampled a disabled Mohawk elder as “awesome.” The swastika is a religious symbol in indigenous cultures, including among the Hopi and Navajo:
On January 29th, 2022, a freedom convoy of mandate protesters began to descend to Ottawa. CBC immediately associated the convoy with Russia:
“A CBC host suggested Russia is playing a nefarious role in the Truckers Freedom Convoy. CBC host Nil Koksal made this allegation Friday when speaking with the Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino.
“I do ask that because given Canada’s support of Ukraine, in this current crisis with Russia, I don’t know if it’s far fetched to ask but there is concern that Russian actors could be continuing to fuel things, as this as this protest grows, but perhaps even instigating it from from the outset,” CBC panelist Koksal said.”
On February 13th, a hacker claiming to belong to the Anonymous hacking collective obtained and released the private information of Freedom Convoy donors after illegally accessing GiveSendGo’s DNS setting. The hacker was Canadian citizen Aubrey Cottle. Cottle released a “manifesto,” alleging that there was “foreign interference” with the Canadian Freedom Convoy.
Cottel has a history of pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic views:
On February 24th, 2022, Anonymous “declared war” on Russia. Two days later, the collective claimed responsibility for hacking the Russian Defense Ministry, releasing the names and private names of tens of thousands of Russians:
Canada considers cyber attacks like the one Anonymous just claimed credit for against the Russian Defense Ministry as “an act of war.”

Azov Battalion, Right Sector, the CIA, and Ukraine
Ukrainian nationism began fighting for an independent republic in 1917:
“Non-Ukrainian Soviet citizens had been taught to distrust Ukrainians ever since the country had attempted to mould its own destiny in June 1917 by setting up a Ukrainian People’s Republic. This independent state, which resisted the armies of Vladimir Lenin during the Russian civil war, was to last only a few months. After several years of civil war, Ukraine became a Soviet Republic ruled from Moscow in December 1922. Ukrainian nationalism was seen from the beginning as a threat to the Bolshevik ideal, and was to be stamped out—at all costs.”
Ukrainian nationalists were also at the center of the dispute that led to Holodomor, as Ukrainian nationalist communists wanted sovereignty from the Soviet republic. After protests and uprising, the USSR responded by allowing millions of Ukrainians to die from starvation.
Ukrainian nationalists united with Adolph Hitler during WWII and committed acts of genocide against the Polish people. “During World War II, the nationalists formed the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) in 1942. The UPA leadership decided to eliminate the Poles living in Volhynia. According to Polish historians, starting in 1943, UPA guerrillas murdered up to 100,000 Poles, mainly civilians (including in Eastern Galicia). The Poles responded with force, killing at least several thousand Ukrainians.But the UPA also fought against the Soviets; its units effectively engaged with the Red Army and the NKVD until the 1950s, based in forest hideouts. The Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) gives April 12, 1960, as the date of their last battle, 15 years after the end of the war. In this way, the UPA and its leader, Stepan Bandera, became a symbol of anti-Communism in Ukraine and thus took an extremely important place in the historical policy of today’s Ukraine, which is still struggling with Russian influence.”
“AERODYNAMIC (formerly CARTEL, ANDROGEN, AECARTHAGE) (1949-70) refers to CIA support for ZP/UHVR (Ukrainian Supreme Liberation Council), which began in 1949. CIA helped to establish in New York City the PrologResearch and Publishing Company in 1953 as ZP/UHVR’s publishing and research arm. Prolog, through an affiliate in Munich, published periodicals and selected books and pamphlets which sought to exploit and increase nationalist and other dissident tendencies in Soviet Ukraine. ZP/UHVR operational activity concentrated on propaganda and contact operations. In 1970, AERODYNAMIC was redesignated QRPLUMB.”
The CIA’s outline for the project included establishing clandestine resistance and psychological warfare activities directed against the Soviets:
The CIA acknowledged the nationalist resistance collaborated with German Nazis:
The CIA sought to create a permanent operation in Ukraine and use proxy states as needed throughout the operation. Washington served as the headquarters for coordination of all Project Aerodynamics activities, while Germany would be the “primary area of operation”:
As well as to conduct psychological warfare activities against nations bordering Ukraine:
One of the goals of the covert operation was to convince Ukrainians outside of the USSR to agree to gather intelligence in the Soviet Union. The CIA supported the very same Ukrainian nationalist group responsible for the genocide of Poles during WWII:
There are over 3,300 files in the CIA’s Project Aerodynamics archive.
A 1975 CIA report entitled “Nationalism in Soviet Ukraine” evaluated the strength of dissident Ukraine nationalist movements in Soviet Ukraine and how Moscow contained them:
17% of the Soviet population was Ukrainian in 1975, making Ukrainian nationalists a potential asset to increase anti-Moscow sentiment:
John McCain was also linked to Azov Battalion and Ukrainian nationalist in the early 2010s, making support for Ukrainian Nazis bipartisan:
Ukraine nationalism has flourished since 2014, with groups like Azov Battalion receiving funding from the CIA:
Vice describes how Azov Battalion has been incorporated into the Ukrainian military:
“The controversy has largely centered around Azov – a militant ultranationalist movement with neo-Nazi roots that was officially incorporated into Ukraine’s National Guard in 2014, after playing a major role in fighting pro-Russian forces in key engagements such as the Battle for Mariupol. The sprawling movement consists of an official regiment within the National Guard; its own fringe political party, National Corps; and a paramilitary group, known as National Militia, which “patrols” Ukrainian streets enforcing its own brand of justice. Members of the group have been linked to a series of violent attacks on minorities in recent years.
The movement’s extremist ideology has never been much of a secret. Its fighters have been photographed covered with far-right tattoos and insignia, while the regiment is identifiable by the Nazi Wolfsangel logo on their uniforms (the group has denied the symbol carries a Nazi connotation). And the movement is driven by figures with deep roots in Ukraine’s extreme-right scene.
Andriy Biletsky, the Azov Batallion’s first commander and later a National Corps parliamentarian, previously led the neo-Nazi paramilitary organisation “Patriot of Ukraine,” and once stated in 2010 that it was the Ukrainian nation’s mission to “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade… against Semite-led Untermenschen [subhumans].”
“There is no arguing about [the extremist ideology], because you can see the pictures of guys with swastikas,” Mikael Skillt, a Swedish former neo-Nazi who travelled to Ukraine in 2014 to become a foreign volunteer for the far-right regiment, told VICE World News last year.”
Azov Battalion is considered a “nationalist hate group” by the United States, despite the CIA providing funding to the group:
“The U.S. government – which has described Azov’s political party, National Corps, as a “nationalist hate group” – has banned any of its military aid to Ukraine from reaching the movement, while the FBI has said in a criminal complaint it believes Azov is training and radicalising US white supremacists, among the wave of foreign right-wing extremists who have been drawn to Ukraine to seek contacts with the movement. (Since 2014, an estimated 17,000 foreign fighters have poured into Ukraine, fighting on both sides of the conflict.)
In 2019, concerns over the dangers posed by Ukraine’s ultranationalists prompted ambassadors of G7 countries to urge the government to act against the extremists.”
The Azov Battalion trained child soldiers as early as 2015, ingraining ethnic hatred of Russians into training:
From the Daily Mail:
“Shocking new images show Ukrainian children being taught how to use automatic rifles at a ‘summer camp’ in Kiev. The youngsters were pictured dismantling and aiming the weapons at the retreat run by Ukraine’s National Guard.
The army’s Azov Battalion, a far-right neo-Nazi militia, has been pictured teaching children as young as six to fire weapons although they are not thought to be running this one.
These pictures surface at a very troubled time for so-called ceasefire between Russian rebels and Ukraine’s armed forces.
Both soldiers and civilians are being killed in daily clashes between the two sides – who blame each other for violating the peace deal.
The children who attended the camp just outside the village of Stare are seen holding fake, wooden guns – as well as real ones.
One shows a young blonde girl admiring an automatic rifle. In another, two men in army clothing hand guns to two girls who are lying down in a shooting position.
Pictures which surfaced earlier this month showed Azov Battalion soldiers – some of whom had fought on the front line against Russian troops – teaching children as young as six to use guns.
Some of its fighters have been labelled as far-right supporters of neo-Nazi groups, even though the group rejects this claim.One of the group’s most famous foreign fighters, a Swedish shooter named Mikael Skillt, has admitted his past far-right leanings, the Kiev Post reported.
When the Ukraine-based website visited the camp this month, children were stripping down and assembling AK47s, firing weapons at targets, and practicing hand-to-hand combat. They also take part in other sports and activities such as rappelling, rock-climbing, and woodcraft skills like tying knots.
The leaders of France, Germany, and Russia backed a new ceasefire in eastern Ukraine in a three-way phone call today but agreed that February’s peace deal is in trouble. France’s Francois Hollande and Germany’s Angela Merkel said all three leaders backed efforts to reinstate the ceasefire, while Russia’s President Vladimir Putin blamed Kiev for breaking it.
The Kremlin said Putin had concerns over Kiev’s actions in the east, which he said included shelling the population and an economic blockade.On Wednesday, Ukraine and pro-Russian separatists agreed to end all truce violations from next Tuesday, the OSCE and rebel representatives have said. The two sides agreed to a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine in February, which included the holding of local elections and a special separatist-run government.
Rebel leaders have vowed to press ahead with the local elections on October 18 and November 1 – a move fiercely criticized by Kiev.”

The CIA is linked to EcoHealth Alliance, whose proposal to design mRNA coronavirus vaccines was rejected by DARPA:
“Brethren, our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power which enables him even to subject all things to himself. Therefore, my brethren, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.”
Never forget we are citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, not pawns for the earthly world to sacrifice for ideology, flags, or imaginary lines. When we unite with love, there will be no need for war. Anything encouraging the destruction of life is poison for the soul.
