Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Far-Right ideology has cemented itself in Ukraine under Zelensky

However, as recently as August 5, the Ukrainian president demonstrated that he has not deviated from the reactionary and extremist ideology of his predecessor. Zelensky said on the Dom TV channel that "for the sake of your children and grandchildren," those who identify as Russian in Donbass should "go find a place for yourself in the Russian Federation." Effectively, he called for the ethnic cleansing of Russians in Donbass, irrespective of the fact that Donbass has been an integral part of the Russian homeland since the 1600's. It cannot be overlooked that Zelensky's call for Russians to be ethnically cleansed from Donbass is in violation of the European Convention on Human Rights and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He received no condemnation from the EU or the UN.

If this is intended to illustrate that there is ethnic cleansing going on in the Ukraine... then that'll be a FAIL.

Google translate from the Radio Free Europe site in Ukranian :

"Those people who now live in the occupied territories of Donbass and Crimea need to understand that this is not about someone being evicted. I just want to be understood. Once again: is it the Motherland or are you a guest? I believe that if you live in the territory of Donbass today, temporarily occupied, and you believe that this is the right thing for us in Russia, that we are Russians, it is a big mistake to stay and live in Donbass. It will never be Russian territory. It's just never, "Zelensky said.

I think that it's optimistic on his part, but not unreasonable, otherwise.

I believe that I can make a formal claim of voluntary disinformation for your above post. Or did you just believe the crappy analysis from the BRICs site without checking yourself?

Oui, please, can you respond to my above post? I have noticed that when you engage with other participants, your responses are clear, cogent, well-reasoned. In other words, of much better quality than your high-volume, hit-and-run posting style. I wish you would exercise better quality control.

Oui, you're going over the same ground here.
Perhaps now that the Russians have control of a significant part of Ukrainian territory, they have found proof of ethnic cleansing? Genocide, as Putin said? I don't know, mass graves or something?

It's not that I don't take extreme right violence seriously. I do. But some sort of tangible evidence is required, because these are heavy accusations, considering that they are being used as an excuse to invade a sovereign country. That would require a certain number of verifiable deaths to justify the thousands of deaths resulting from the invasion, do you disagree?
