The UK Defense Secretary and Those Nice Chaps With the SS Runes

This article originally appeared at The Blog Mire

The United Kingdom Secretary of State for Stoking up Conflict, Michael Fallon, just announced during a visit to Kiev that the British Army is going to be investing more UK taxpayers’ money into training the Ukrainian army, increasing the number of soldiers in the programme from just over 1,000 to around 2,000 by the end of the year.

Article 10 of the Minsk II Accords states the following:

Pullout of all foreign armed formations, military equipment, and also mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under OSCE supervision. Disarmament of all illegal groups.

Judge for yourselves: Is this in compliance with Minsk II? Or is it a flagrant violation of it?

During his visit he told Ukrainian Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk (who was appointed by Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt to his position whilst Viktor Yanukovych was still in office) that the visit “reaffirmed the UK’s support”. He went on to say:

“Seven thousand people have already died in the Ukraine, right on the doorstep of Europe … This is not a frozen conflict, it’s still red hot. We are not going to turn our back on Ukraine.”

1. Is the UK Government going to sanction itself for violating the Minsk II Accords?
2. In reaffirming the UK Government’s support for “Ukraine”, do we include those “Ukrainians” who have been shelled relentlessly by the “Ukrainian” Government?
3. Are we going to be training any of those nice chaps with the SS runes?
