JEA: If you think that the crisis in Ukraine is all about fighting for democracy, then think again. Volodymyr Zelensky’s recent move proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that NATO, the United States, and New World Order Agents have no business in talking about “democracy” and “freedom” in Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky banned 11 opposition political parties and nationalized media. Any activities supporting the parties labeled “pro-Russian” are now illegal.

Axios reports the list of parties now banned include: Platform For Life, Shariy Party, Nashi, Opposition Bloc, Left Opposition, Union of Left Forces, State, Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, Socialist Party of Ukraine, Socialists Party, and Volodymyr Saldo Bloc.

Platform for Life is Ukraine’s largest opposition party and currently holds 44 seats in parliament. Last year, The party’s leader, Viktor Medvedchuk, was accused of treason and placed under house arrest.

Another targeted party, Nashi, is led by Yevhen Murayev. The UK previously accused Murayev of working with Moscow to overthrow the Ukrainian government. However, Murayev was sanctioned by Russia in 2018.

Ukraine’s Russian minority has faced increased discrimination since the 2014 coup. The opposition parties largely represent the 17% of the Ukrainian people who are ethnic Russians. Language and cultural laws have targeted Russian movies, including one starring Zelensky.

The new presidential order is a part of Zelensky’s effort to create a unified political narrative in Ukraine. He has announced an information policy that combines “all national TV channels…[into] a single information platform of strategic communication.”

  1. Just more of the same great game divide and conquer. The $5billion of NED money that paid for the Maiden chaos, American blood money did not just pop into the heads of Obama, Clinton, Nuland. It has a paper trail. There should be investigation’s into the provonance by journalists and our Congress into how we find ourselves in an whole planet planet encompassing crisi’s of exitential proportions for all the living. Anything less endangers future survival.

  2. How is that for “Freedom and Democracy”? Well, it is just a continuation of western principles as playing out in other european countries. The truth is not welcome and propaganda has replaced journalism. The last time I checked, the banning of opposition parties was a hallmark of fascist dictatorships. But that can’t be, correct? After all Zelinsky is a Jew, isn’t he? Or did I get the main stream media wrong on that?
