"A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin says a comment by a senior Russian official who called Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko "a Nazi" do not represent the Kremlin's official position. Dmitry Peskov was quoted by Interfax as saying the remark by Sergei Glazyev, a senior Putin adviser, "does not reflect the official point of view" of the Russian government."
To Sergey Glazyev and to others in Russia and in "Novorossiya," the Kremlin firmly bent on returning them to the Nazis thus sends this message:
"From Putin, the Wise, and oligarchs united on his behalf: You shouldn't call Nazis Nazis because we do not like it when you call them that way; our own policy and feelings are thus hurt and damaged (and never mind what your grandfathers fought against or the 70th anniversary of the Victory Day). When Putin and Lavrov call the Bandera regime "partners," "colleagues," and "friends," we do actually mean it (a memo to Saker will be sent soon).
Listen you guys down there, you are not fighting against the Nazis because we don't fight against them and we prohibit that. We don't want to see that. You are merely asking for the right to speak Russian, to be filtrated into "Sonderbereichen" (Special Districts), to celebrate Bandera as the rest of Nazi Ukraine and to be eventually forcibly conscripted against the war on Crimea and Russia as the rest of Ukraine and the rest of us."
So, as the Kremlin and Putin is concerned, the Odessa massacre too was apparently a friendly, collegial gesture of the Nazi friends, I mean, just friends of the Kremlin. So were all the massive and systematic killings and tortures by the Kiev secret police, Naz battalions, and the Banderite security forces.
Nazis? What Nazis?
Michael Green: On June 27, 2014, Glazyev was rebuked by the Kremlin, as stated in this article, for calling Poroshenko [and the Banderites] Nazis, which wasn't published until a full year after the fact. If that doesn't send a double message to the west, nothing would.
