TYMOSHENKO entered into political alliance with TOTALITARIAN COMMUNO-NAZI ANTISEMITIC degenerates
Tzipi Livni, the Israeli politician, former Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister
National socialist Freedom Party (VO Svoboda) maintains open anti-Semite rhetoric.
The alliance of communo-nazis from Svoboda with the nomenklatura of the central committee communist party USSR from `Batkivshchyna` Party can have serious consequences for the international reputation and the internal development of Ukraine.
A top Israeli politician, former Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mrs Tzipi Livni commented on this shameful development
Q.: Your condemnation of the Ukrainian neo-Nazis has triggered a wide response in Ukraine. Why did you decide to take this step?
A.: I believe that the Israeli policy and the very state of Israel, as a Jewish state, must take an active role wherever there are manifestations of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism
Q.: In Ukraine, there are those who would consider your statement as interference in the internal affairs of the country. Is it correct to assess general elections from abroad?
A.: We in no way interfere in the internal affairs of another country, but we have a clear and unambiguous position on all matters relating to anti-Semitism. This is the duty of Israel as a Jewish state.
Q.: Israel was the first country, whose public figures (ambassadors, politicians) alarmed at the fact that radical politicians got seats in the Verkhovna Rada.
Then the European Parliament adopted a resolution calling for the parties of the Ukrainian parliament not to cooperate with Svoboda.
However, the leader of the United Opposition, Arseniy Yatseniuk, refused to listen to the MEPs.
What can such a position lead to?
A.: I believe that those who are trying to give legitimacy are as guilty as the Svoboda Party. It is even more sadly that it comes about the politicians primarily known for their moderation and understanding of the international context in such things.
The position of the former Foreign Minister, Arseniy Yatseniuk, put it mildly, is puzzling.
All the more so as it was Yatseniuk seeking revocation of the Jackson-Vanik amendment for Ukraine.
I remember also that Yatseniuk himself became a victim of aggressive xenophobia during the 2010 campaign.
Q.: Why in Ukraine there is such a political system in which the party Batkivshchyna of Yulia Tymoshenko agreed with Svoboda to coordinate their action?
A.: I think that this issue should be addressed, first and foremost, to the people of Ukraine, the largest country in Europe, with a tough history, from which we can learn many lessons.
The point is not about Svoboda, but the attitude of society to it. I think that any, even the tightest political situation, cannot justify such a union in the modern world.
Q.: How should the policy-makers in Western Europe and the U.S. regard the party's appearance in the parliament? Some deputies of the Verkhovna Rada propose to declare members of the Svoboda Party "non-handshakable" and urged Western politicians not to meet with them. How effective could such a step be?
A.: I think that such a phenomenon as the totalitarian national socialist Svoboda Party should not be overlooked and left with no response from the international community. Please note that even the most radical parties in Europe refused to cooperate and communicate with Tiahnybok. Even the French far-right party of Marine Le Pen. Even the Hungarian party Yobik.
Q.: Ukraine has already heard the idea that Europe, the U.S., Israel should adopt something like the Magnitsky Act in the U.S. to ban politicians with Nazi, xenophobic and anti-Semitic beliefs from entering democratic countries. Do you agree with this initiative?
A.: I advocate taking all possible measures to suppress neo-Nazis and their activities.
