Experts worried as Kremlin intellectuals call for ‘clean up’ of Ukraine

WASHINGTON – A leading Russian intellectual wrote in an article published on Sunday that Ukrainian society must be “cleansed of Nazi elements” as Ukrainian soldiers search for dire consequences following the massacre of civilians in Pucha, a suburb of Pucha.

“What should Russia do with Ukraine?” Article entitled. Published on the website of the Kremlin-controlled news agency RIA Novosti. Its author, Timofey Sergeytsev, has been described as a “political technologist.” He previously served on behalf of pro-Kremlin President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted during the popular uprising known as the Orange Revolution in 2014.

Sergei Tsvangirai, who truly echoes the arguments put forward by Russian President Vladimir Putin, blames the public. “A significant number of civilians are guilty of being passive Nazis and Nazi allies,” Sergei Zhev writes. “They supported the Nazi authorities and talked to them.”

Sergei Zhev “Overseas, outrageous claims in the past”, Oxford expert on Russian affairs Map of Samuel Yahoo told the news agency. But in this case, the article “reflects the thinking of the main Kremlin.”

Following the widespread spread of the Russian language version on social media, Ukrainian activists translated the article into English.

Activists wrote, “This is exactly what #Russia wants.”

Russian expert Michael Weiss wrote on Twitter about Sergitchev’s article, “As you read in the state-owned media organization, naked consent to genocide.

Article “Master Plan of Genocide”, Berlin-based Russian expert Sergei Samleni Yahoo said in a text message. He predicted that Sergitzev’s comments would justify a number of atrocities, such as the one in Pucha.

Putin launched the invasion of Ukraine in February under the fictitious pretext that the country’s leadership was full of “Nazi” extremists. Despite the extreme right-wing elements in Ukraine’s society and its military, they, like other European countries, create a marginalization beyond power. Russia’s claims are particularly absurd, given the fact that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky is one of the few Jewish leaders on the world stage. Zelensky and some of his predecessors sought to distance themselves from Russia and divert the country westward, much to the anger of the Kremlin.

Ramani told Yahoo News about Sergeytsev’s long comments that Russia was “not just after the fragmentation of the region”. “It’s about the suppression of Ukrainian identity, and it equates any expression of Ukrainian nationalism with Nazism,” even if the expressions of nationalism were voiced by Zhelensky, a family member who fought against the Nazis in World War II. Others who died in the Holocaust.

In his RIA Novosti article, Sergeytsev basically calls for the removal of the Ukrainian national identity. “The name ‘Ukraine’ cannot be a title for any state-owned enterprise that was completely destroyed in the territory liberated from Nazi rule,” he writes. “Newly formed people’s republics in areas devoid of Nazism must be formed on the basis of economic self-government and social security, restructuring and modernization of the systems of essential services to the population.”

Zelensky addressed the article in a call to Romanian politicians on Monday, saying it would be used “as evidence in the future court of Russian war crimes.” He said the article called for “the destruction of everything that makes Ukrainians Ukrainians.”

Putin long saw Ukraine as part of a wider, Moscow-led Slavic empire, a vision expressed by intellectuals who provided a philosophical support for the Kremlin’s occupation of Ukraine and elsewhere. Although Ukrainians share cultural, religious and linguistic similarities with Russia, they have long been interested in being treated as a younger partner. Ukraine has been a homeland since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.

Sergei Tzu’s article is a window into how the Kremlin is openly watching the invasion of Ukraine, but seems to have abandoned its “reduction” plan last week amid mounting military casualties.

Regime change is no longer the common Russian condition for peace. But it is not clear whether the Kremlin really wants to put an end to the fighting.

For one, the Kremlin continues to promote its unsubstantiated claims about Ukrainian extremism, as former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev wrote in a social media post on Monday, “an emotional section of Ukrainian society has been praying for Third Rich for the past 30 years.”

Going even further in his RIA Novosti article, Sergei Zhev argues that “Ukraine-Nazism is a greater threat to the world and to Russia than the Hitler version of German Nazism.” The Russian media is full of filthy stories about the killing of ethnic Russians by Ukrainian troops. Foreign conspiracy theories about biological weapons laboratories funded by the president’s son, Hunter Biden, and the Jewish philanthropist George Soros have been widely reported in the Russian media – and beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Adolf Hitler was responsible for the deaths of millions of Russians and Ukrainians and the extermination of 6 million Jews. The Russian propaganda includes the fact that during the Hitler invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Ukrainian collaborators also worked with the Nazis. Those Ukrainian nationalists hoped for independence from the brutal Soviet regime that caused millions of deaths. In Ukraine.

Zelensky and his supporters argue that if any regime represents modern Nazi Germany, it is the regime found in Moscow.

“It is important to spread the word,” wrote the Ukrainians, who published the English language version of Sergei Zhev’s article. “The world needs to know about Russian methods, crimes and plans. It will not stop until Putin is stopped.
