History of Ukraine Told by Assassinated Ukrainian Writer Oles Buzina

Is this the Ukrainian democracy the West wants to see?

Can you imagine what would happened if, in Russia, three opposition figures, a well-known writer and two politicians, were killed in the span of two days? We have a vague of idea of what that would look like, after the Western hysteria about Nemtsov. 

Oles' assassination was the third in a row of political killings in the last four days: Sergey Sukhobok (April 13); Oleg Kalashnikov (April 15); and Oles Buzina (April 16).

Why are the Western media silent about these political assassinations? And all of this happened after 9 "mysterious suicides" in Ukraine in the last 2 months.

One can only see a few tweets from Russia and Ukraine based Western journalists labeling the victim as "Pro-Russian" and "anti-Maidan." In this way they want to implicitly legitimize and minimize the value of this cold-blooded murder. You almost hear them saying "this assassination is cool, move on."

Oles considered himself a true Ukrainian patriot and was certainly not pro-Russian by default. However, he was not anti-Russian either since, as an historian by education, he knew a lot about the deep and unbreakable historical, religious, and cultural connections between Ukrainians and Russians.

Poroshenko's statement was more than cynical: two recent assassinations of pro-Russia public figures in Kyiv are 'provocations' and attempt to 'destabilize' Ukraine. The current chief of Kiev's police is a former deputy commander of neo-Nazi Azov battalion. Can we really expect a transparent investigation?

Ukrainian coordinator of security services, Anton Geraschenko, already accused Putin of killing both Oleg Kalashnikov and Buzina, calling them Putin's sacral victims.

This is what Anton Geraschenko posted on his Facebook page few days ago before Kalashnykov was killed.

In this video, Oles tells a very interesting story about Ukraine's history, where he obviously doesn't take sides and talks only about the hard facts. Rest in peace, Oles.
