PRESS RELEASE


Ukrainian Insurgent Army Claims Responsibility for Ukrainian Political Assassinations

April 22, 2015 (EIRNS)—According to TASS, the Opposition Bloc party in Ukraine’s parliament said on Friday, April 17, that it received an e-mail with threats from a group which calls itself the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA). The Opposition Bloc party calls itself the voice of eastern Ukraine, the industry party of the country and the real economy. It is headed by Yuiry Boyko, a former vice-prime minister and energy minister under President Viktor Yanukovych.

The Ukrainian Insurgent Army is the name of the organization of Stepan Bandera, which collaborated with the Nazis. On April 9, the Ukrainian parliament adopted a law which characterized members of this organization and the OUN as "independence fighters."

In the letter, the UPA claims responsibility for the "elimination" of ex-MP Mikhail Chechetov, ex-chairman of the Zaporizhia regional administration Alexander Peklushenko, former lawmaker Stanislav Melnik, former MP Oleg Kalashnikov, and journalist Oles Buzina.

According to TASS, the group has also threatened with physical elimination the representatives of the current Ukrainian authorities, accusing them of failing to have imposed a martial law in the country and blaming them for the voluntary surrender of the Ukrainian territories.

The UPA, which has been banned in Russia, says those guilty of the "anti-Ukrainian and anti-popular activity" have 72 hours to leave Ukraine.

The report of this email threat from the UPA and the group’s claim of responsibility for the recent assassinations in the country, underscores the fact that Victoria Nuland has imposed a Nazi regime of terror on the population of Ukraine on behalf of Obama.

On April 14, Lyndon LaRouche issued a statement holding Victoria Nuland accountable were anything to happen to Natalia Vitrenko, who has been subjected to a defamation campaign setting her up for assassination. This email underscores the urgency of the situation.
