Zelensky and two Azov fighters speak inside the Greek parliament: One of the most disgraceful moments for the country that suffered most from the nazis

 
We thought that we had seen the worst with Mitsotakis regime in Greece. Yet, one of the worst Greek governments ever, did the unthinkable inside the Greek parliament. The MPs of the opposition parties caught by surprise when, in his speech, the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky included a video message from two (allegedly Greek-ethnic) fighters from the neo-nazi Azov battalion.
 
The Speaker of the Parliament, Konstantinos Tasoulas, member of Mitsotakis' New Democracy right-wing party, explained that they learned about the videotaped appearance of the fighters a few minutes before the speech of the Ukrainian President, but without knowing the content of their intervention. He described as “unnecessary and misplaced” the appearance of the two fighters, but stressed that we must stay in the big picture, which is the appearance of Zelensky. 

Even if we are to believe Tasoulas' ridiculous excuses, how is it possible for a president of a parliament to let someone speak without his speech being pre-scheduled and without knowing what they are going to say? Zelensky spoke to many other parliaments and nowhere dared to set-up such a disgraceful provocation.
 
Greece's Communist Party stance to absent from Zelensky's speech from the beginning, completely justified, while the party sharply criticized this unbelievable fiasco:

“Shame! Only this word can describe the current presence, through a teleconference, of the President of Ukraine in the Greek Parliament,” says the publications Radio 902.gr.

“V. Zelensky’s speech turned into a vicious show of money laundering by the reactionary government of Ukraine, in order to sanctify Euro-Atlantic propaganda, portraying even the Nazis as “freedom fighters”.

The masks literally fell off, irreparably exposing the government and other parties involved in this tasteless prank, when, after the Ukrainian president, an “expatriate” who “participates in the defense” of Mariupol through the Nazi “Order of Azov” spoke up“, – emphasized the Greek communists.

The Greek communists, from the very beginning of hostilities in Ukraine, chose anti-war stancedeclaring this war imperialist and blaming the authorities of Ukraine, the USA, NATO and Russia for it.


In total, Zelensky’s speech lasted 15 minutes. At the end of it, Olga Gerovasili, secretary of the SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance party, noted that it was unacceptable to invite members of the Azov Regiment to speak. She stressed that at the meeting of party leaders she would ask the Speaker of Parliament Tasoulas for an explanation as to whether he was informed about this and whether he gave his consent to it.
 
Yet, this great fiasco sparked a storm of outraged comments in the Greek social media. Many twitter users called Tasoulas to resign. And several SYRIZA supporters were expressed their disappointment for the fact that SYRIZA's MPs had chosen to stay until the end of Zelensky's speech, claiming that the whole team of the party should leave immediately with the video-appearance of Azov nazis.
 
It would be worth to note that even some of the most conservative pro-Western members of New Democracy expressed their annoyance about the fiasco. Former PM, Antonis Samaras, stated that it was "a big mistake". 
 
Yet, Mitsotakis' Western puppets didn't hesitate to stand up and give a prolonged applause to Zelensky, right after the end of his speech. Apparently, they are so blindly devoted to their US/European bosses that couldn't even realize how disgraceful that moment for the Greek parliament and their country was. And they couldn't imagine the wave of outrage from all political directions and ordinary Greeks it would spark.

April 7, 2022 will be marked as one of the most disgraceful days for the Greek parliament and the country that suffered most from the nazis during WWII. Thanks to one of the worst regimes that the country has seen after the fall of the military junta in 1974.

Day 1900: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

Exposed: How Biden & Ukraine’s Fascists Worked Together to Block Peace with Russia

BreakThrough News   Newly released treaty negotiation documents show that Ukraine and Russia were very close to ending the war—more than two years ago, in April 2022. But U.S. imperialists and NATO have worked with and strengthened the right-wing in Ukraine to achieve their long-term goals in the region, including endless war, no matter how many people die. Brian Becker is joined by Eugene Puryear, co-host of The Freedom Side , to discuss the newly revealed documents showing how the Ukraine war nearly ended two years ago but were sabotaged by the intervention of the White House and the Ukrainian far-right. They discuss how Ukraine’s economy has been totally mortgaged to U.S. and European interests.

Israeli documents show expansive government effort to shape US discourse around Gaza war

As the Gaza war rages, Israeli funds target US college campuses and push to redefine antisemitism in US law   by Lee Fang and Jack Poulson   Part 3 - Substantial Israeli government involvement in American politics   Haaretz and the New York Times recently revealed that Chikli’s ministry had tapped a public relations firm to secretly pressure American lawmakers. The firm used hundreds of fake accounts posting pro-Israel or anti-Muslim content on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook and Instagram. (The diaspora affairs ministry denied involvement in the campaign, which reportedly provided about $2m to an Israeli firm for the social media posts.) But that effort is only one of many such campaigns coordinated by the ministry, which has received limited news coverage. The ministry of diaspora affairs and its partners compile weekly reports based on tips from pro-Israel US student groups, some of which receive funding from Israeli government sources . For example, Hillel International, a co-foun

Israeli documents show expansive government effort to shape US discourse around Gaza war

As the Gaza war rages, Israeli funds target US college campuses and push to redefine antisemitism in US law   by Lee Fang and Jack Poulson   Part 1 - Redefining antisemitism   Last November, just weeks into the war in Gaza, Amichai Chikli, a brash, 42-year-old Likud minister in the Israeli government, was called into the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, to brief lawmakers on what could be done about rising anti-war protests from young people across the United States, especially at elite universities. “ I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again now, that I think we should, especially in the United States, be on the offensive,” argued Chikli. Chikli has since led a targeted push to counter critics of Israel. The Guardian has uncovered evidence showing how Israel has relaunched a controversial entity as part of a broader public relations campaign to target US college campuses and redefine antisemitism in US law. Seconds after a smoke alarm subsided during the hearing, Chikli assured the l
