From the Carpathian Mountains to the Urals, there are no mountains. Consequently, Eastern Europe is a vast plain in which many peoples passed and sometimes settled without the relief allowing to delimit the borders of their territory. Poland, Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic countries and the European part of Russia are passage corridors whose history is dominated by flows. Most of these states recede on a sea or a mountain. Only Belarus and Ukraine have no natural borders.

When the Versailles Peace Conference attempted to establish borders in Eastern Europe at the end of World War I, it was unsuccessful. Depending on whether historical, linguistic, ethnic or economic criteria were used, different maps should have been designed, but the interests of the winners (US, France, UK) were contradictory, so the decisions made satisfied only ‘half concerned. Even today, the problem can be turned around in all directions: the borders of Belarus and Ukraine are and will remain artificial. It is a very special situation, difficult to understand for people with a long national history.

Once this is established, it must be admitted that neither Belarus nor Ukraine can be nations in the usual sense of the term, which does not mean that they cannot be states. “Ukrainian nationalism” is an artificial ideology that can only be built by rejecting other peoples. This is what the banderists did during the interwar period and still today against the “Muscovites” or the “Great Russians”. This form of nationalism can only be destructive. The example of Belarus shows that another path is possible.

Poland, which had completely disappeared in the 19th century, was reconstituted after the defeat of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Russian Revolution. However, the Conference of Versailles, if it had no problem establishing its western border, did not know where to establish its eastern border. Thus, the Second Polish Republic tried to develop by waging a war against Ukraine. He succeeded in annexing all of Galicia. Today Krakow is still Polish, while Lviv is Ukrainian. There is in fact no obvious reason for this division, other than the possibility of armed conflict.

When President Volodymyr Zelensky asserts that Donbass and Crimea are Ukrainian, he describes the current state of the cadastre, but cannot justify it.

In 1792, Crimea was conquered by the Russian Empire from the Ottoman Empire, along with the freedom for its fleet to use the Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits. Tsarina Catherine II intended to extend her influence to the South Seas. But the British, fearing that the Russians would enter the Mediterranean and challenge their naval hegemony, organized a coalition with France and the Ottoman Empire. They managed to defeat the Russian army, but not to recapture this territory.

This was kept in 1917 by the Soviet Union. It was in Crimea, in Sevastopol, that the decisive battle of the “Second World War” (or the “Great Patriotic War” in Russian terminology) took place, marking the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.


In 1954, the first secretary of the USSR, the Ukrainian Nikita Khrushchev, decided both to grant amnesty to the banderists and to attach Crimea administratively to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. It was a question of turning the page on the crimes of the banderists and the Nazis during the world war and the crimes of the banderists and the CIA at the beginning of the “cold” war.

When the Soviet Union collapsed, Crimea declared itself independent by referendum on February 12, 1991, as the Crimean Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. The rest of present-day Ukraine did not confirm its independence until nine months later, on December 1, 1991. However, Russian President Boris Yeltsin refused to return Crimea to his country, so he decided to return to Ukraine on February 26, 1992.

When democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown in a US-organized Color Revolution, the government formed included a dozen Banderist members [1]. Under these conditions, Crimea refused to see a racist political regime imposed on it. It decided by referendum to recover its independence and to apply for membership in the Russian Federation.

After the installation of Russian military bases in Syria, London sees in the Russian presence in Crimea the return of a credible rival, capable of threatening its maritime hegemony.

After conquering Crimea, Tsarina Catherine II sends her fleet to Beirut and Latakia. She also established a colony in southern Ukraine, “New Russia” (Novorossia). This territory included Donbass, Mykolayev, Kirovograd (now Kropyvnytskyi), Kherson, Odessa, Gagauzia and Transnistria (now the Dniester Moldavian Republic). Pavel Goubarev, who was governor of Donetsk in 2014, also opposed the new kyiv regime imposed by the “coup” or by the “revolution” (depending on the point of view). He therefore proposed to secede from Ukraine with all the territories of Catherine II’s “New Russia”. You should know that Goubarev was neither pro-Russian nor pro-American, but on the contrary pro-European. It was only when kyiv arrested and imprisoned him that he became pro-Russian. When President Zelensky refused the Russian peace offer, President Putin told him that his demands would increase over time. Now the liberation of “New Russia” (Novorossia) is the strategic objective of the Russian armies. In almost all wars, the victor demands compensation, often territory. Here it will be Novorossia.

By creating the United Nations, the victors of the Second World War hoped to put an end to the wars of conquest. However, they recognized that war could be a legal response to some conflicts. The great powers abstained until NATO tore Yugoslavia apart, creating seven new countries. Kosovo has become an American military base in the Balkans. Its security is still provided by a NATO contingent. Bosnia and Herzegovina is still a colony of the European Union. It is always headed by a senior international representative. These deplorable examples create a precedent which will not allow criticism of a possible accession of Novorossia to the Russian Federation.

Poland, which has still not accepted the loss of Eastern Galicia, participated in 2014 in the Anglo-Saxon operation to overthrow the elected president. At the time, I published an article revealing that 86 rioters from the banderist militia Pravy Sektor had been trained by Poland at the Legionowo police station in September 2013 [2]. The operation had been supervised by Radosław Sikorski, Minister of Defense and then Minister of Foreign Affairs. This information was denied by the person concerned, but finally the Polish public prosecutor opened a judicial investigation into this strange affair.

Poland’s support for the banderists against the Ukrainian president was a nice manipulation. Stepan Bandera had indeed supervised, in 1934, the assassination of the Polish Minister of the Interior Bronisław Pieracki on behalf of the Gestapo. Then he had ordered many massacres of Poles during the Second World War.

Polish security specialist Jerzy Dziewulski and interim Ukrainian President Oleksandr Turchynov oversee military operations against Donbass insurgents (June 2014).

It soon became apparent that the colorful Ukrainian revolution/coup of 2014 was overseen by Straussian diplomats Victoria Nuland (current US Secretary of State No. 2) and Derek Chollet (current US Secretary of State Advisor), but implemented by Canadians and Poles Radosław Sikorski and Jerzy Dziewulski. The latter is a prestigious policeman, trained in Israel, then adviser to the President of the Republic and parliamentarian. A photo, taken in June 2014, showed him leading the Ukrainian intervention forces alongside acting Ukrainian President Oleksandr Turchynov.

Poland re-entered the fray at the start of the 2022 Russian special military operation. When NATO announced Russia’s imminent defeat, General Waldemar Skrzypczak demanded that Kaliningrad (which was never Polish) be returned by Russia to Poland as war reparations. As it soon became clear that Russia was advancing and the defeat would be Ukrainian, President Andrzej Duda considered reclaiming Eastern Galicia, which had been lost in World War II. He first proposed to the Ukrainians to deploy a Polish peacekeeping force to protect Galicia. Then he gave a moving speech to assure his neighbors of their support against Russia. Finally, he went to kyiv and made a speech in the Verkhovna Rada. Finally, Poland has started to set up a one-way cooperation. He deployed senior officials to administer the country from which much of the population fled. But not the reverse: there are no Ukrainian officials in Poland. Similarly, after taking in two million Ukrainian political refugees, Poland has indicated that it will stop paying them allowances from July 1.

The Banderists’ enthusiastic acceptance of Warsaw’s territorial aid attests to the artificiality of their “nationalism.”
