Random picture - pro-democracy? Updated 3/1


Source: Reuters on Yahoo! The caption: "U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland (R) and Ukrainian opposition leaders Vitaly Klitschko (3rd L), Arseny Yatsenyuk (2nd L) and Oleg Tyagnibok (L) gather to hold talks in Kiev December 10, 2013."

Leaders of the "pro-democracy" protest against the Ukrainian government with Victoria "here are some cakes" Nuland. Oh, Tyagnibok, the leader of the Svoboda party, recently called out by the Wiesenthal Center and figuring at number five on their list of  '2012 Top Ten Anti-Semitic/Anti-Israel Slurs."... In recent elections the radical right party won 41 seats in the Ukrainian Parliament (10.44% of the popular vote). Tyagnibok has called for purges of the approximately 400,000 Jews and other minorities living in Ukraine and has demanded that Ukraine be liberated from what he calls, the “Muscovite Jewish Mafia.”..."

Svoboda's anti-Russian and pro-NATO program points apparently resonate with Victoria "'Fuck the EU' Nuland and the administration.... apparently willing to overlook other points, including:  

"Set the graph "nationality" in the passport and birth certificate. Determine the nationality by birth certificate or birth certificate of the parents, considering the requests of the citizen.... 

Provide an opportunity to employees to acquire right of ownership of state and communal companies, participate in their management and fair distribution of profits. Allow employees to sell their share in the company exclusively to the appropriate company. Require employees who have stopped the employment relationship with the enterprise to sell their share to the enterprise.... 

Allow persons who acquired ownership of agricultural land by lawful means (when shared, or obtained by an inheritance by law) to sell these plots of land exclusively to the state. Disallow any other means of transfer of such sites...  

Develop the cooperative movement in rural areas in accordance with a separate comprehensive state program... 

Implement a "Reproductive Health of the Nation" program. Disallow abortion except due to medical issues, and/or rape, which were proved in court. Align the implementation of illegal abortion to attempted murder in the criminal law....

Criminalize promotion of drug use (including so-called 'soft drugs') and sexual perversions...  

Restore the nuclear status of Ukraine..."

3/1/2014 update: 

The link to Svoboda's "Program for the Protection of Ukrainians" above seems to be scrubbed, all one gets is an 'Error 404.' But not to worry, it is still accessible, see the 'Error 404, cleaning up?' blog entry...
