Now possibly we are witnessing new chapter of corporatocracy soldiers in Ukraine with ‘Nazi’ brigades such as Azov, Aidar, Pravy and others.
The corporatocracy’s army has been a long-standing issue since the East India Company age (XVII century). Perhaps we now see a new chapter born in Ukraine with ‘Nazi” brigades such as Azov, Aidar, Pravy sector and others.
The use of codified violence used to be the prerogative of kings, lords and then states and supranational bodies. Economic interests have always played a role in wars, both in provoking them and also in managing them, from behind the scenes or directly. So, nothing new under the sun – after all, contractors have been on stage since the sixties to play a key role in proxy war during the Cold War era.
Usually, mercenaries – who are not directly linked to the state – are likely to play dirty games as PsyOps.
Recently the Azov Battalion has sparked outrage for an insulting and racist video shared by the National Guard of Ukraine (NGU) on Twitter, which appeared to show Azov members greasing bullets with pig fat. Azov members of the National Guard greased the bullets with lard against the Kadyrov units. That is an example of an unconventional operation to affect the morale of the enemy. There are Muslim and Jewish soldiers on both sides and such a move could spread embarrassment in the Kiev government.
There is anyway a key point. The Azov Battalion is a unit of the NGU, backed by Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs. Despite its possible official background in Ukraine, the Azov Battalion is known in the West for its extreme neo-Nazi stance, and for its suspected involvement in a number of terrorist attacks and separatist incitement incidents in various countries and crisis area, including the riots in China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in 2019. Azov also gathered hundreds of foreign fighters, from US supremacists to any kind of soldiers of fortune. This unit is inside the Ukraine National army. However, it is the nature of Ukraine that can’t overlap the concept of “state”. The Kiev government was established after the 2014 golpe, supported and directed by US agencies. The members of the new Ukrainian executive were chosen by US officials like Victoria Nuland and the local US Ambassador.
In Ukraine, BigPharma has established tens of biolabs to implement “gain of functions” experiments on lethal viruses prohibited in the US. Furthermore, US corporations like Cargill, DuPont and Monsanto have bought more than 17 million of hectares of crop land. They actually own Ukraine. The Nazi brigades are defending their interests more than Kiev’s ones.
According to intelligence sources released in January 2022, the CIA has been secretly training forces for Ukraine since 2015. The US intelligence agency has been overseeing a secret intensive training program in the US “for elite Ukrainian special operations forces and other intelligence personnel”. One source quoted “five former intelligence and national security officials familiar with the initiative” as saying so.
Three days after the Russian invasion, the US recruiting machine was setting up a group of international military volunteers to fight for Ukraine.
Among them are even highly qualified former US Army infantry officers with the 173rd Airborne Brigade.
Now there has been a huge amount of funding by the US to supply Ukrainians with all kinds of weapons. We are talking of more than 40 billion USD plus other allied NATO partners that have provided valuable assets like self-propelled howitzers. Germany and Italy have sent more than hundreds of their crown’s jewels, like the self-propelled howitzer PZH 2000 (155/52mm). Such huge numbers of weapons are not justified by the size of Ukrainian brigades. Most probably they will be the supply for new units to be established in the future. It almost looks like they have been depleting European National armies to build a new corporate army.
At the moment, this is just a logical deduction, but are we so crazy to let this happen?
Corporate power is the key actor of increasing inequality and next-door dystopia. In May 2011 Nobel Prize winner of economics Joseph Stiglitz wrote: “Much of today’s inequality is due to manipulation of the financial system, enabled by changes in the rules that have been bought and paid for by the financial industry itself—one of its best investments ever”.
If we let that power of the violence directly serve the power of the money, it will be the end stop of democracy, even of the merely formal one we have had so far.
