“Rally”? In the US, we’d call this a riot, and the police would use all necessary force to put it down.

In the cause of EU nation destruction — excuse me, “integration” — attacking cops and destroying property is apparently considered a fundamental right. When it’s carried out by “good” nationalists, that is.

When nationalists in Western countries dare to complain about the destruction of national sovereignty or being flooded by Third World sewage — let alone rise up in the streets — the full force of state power is brought to bear upon them. Gotta smash Nazis, you know.

Dear f00,
Your words make no sense. Nazis were defeated 69 years ago.
Your meaning and or point is clear as mud.

@EastBerlin, don’t be stupid and ignorant. He said that in Europe they like to refer to Nationalists as Nazis to discredit them, because right now their popularity is on the rise.

“The laws – denounced by the United States and other Western governments as anti-democratic – ban any unauthorized installation of tents, stages or use of loud-speakers in public.

Heavy jail sentences were imposed for participation in “mass disorder” and the wearing of face-masks or protective helmets.”

Aren’t all of those things illegal in New York as well? It’s basically a list of restrictions that were placed against Occupy protesters. No tents, stages, bullhorns, masks, etc.

Russian Federation should learn a lesson or two from these rallies. May the Slavs live in peace and eternity.

For those who would say that because Morsi won a democratic election in Egypt, I give you the Ukraine where Yanukovich won a democratic election. Elections do not spell democracy by themselves. That being said, Ukraine has ALWAYS been torn between Russia and Catholic countries to the west. Please remember that in such countries throughout the world, the key is and always has been, “On which side is the police and Army?” That is the side that wins. Merely by doing nothing, the police and army side with the revolutionaries, whomever they might be.

@EastBerlin: If you think that the philosophy of the National Socialist Party of the Third Reich has been defeated, it may have been in terms of the NAZI Party (NSDAP), but the basic nationalist and racial party is alive and well in Germany, the East in Russia, Poland, Greece and yes, the United States. If you don’t believe that, you are quite na├»ve, my friend.

Please take into consideration that troops defending Yanukovitch were created and trained by russian residents. They form an isolated and much more paid group among internal security guards in Ukraine.
They violantly abduct injured in protest actions people from kiev hospitals, taking them somewhere, beating and probably killing.
One of their recent actions was agains mobile placement of urgent medical help near the place of protest actions. All injured were abducted, place was demolished medical workers were beaten. You should take to concideration more live information.
