Ordinary fascism. 15th day of attempts to exterminate Ukrainians

Must read

Publisher’s Note:

Please read Amb. Yuriy Sergeyev’s anguish-filled Op-Ed. He was Ukraine’s ambassador to the UN in 2014 when Crimea was taken, or as Russia asserts, declared its independence. Worthy of recognition is that dear Yuriy, like most Ukrainians, has not cut and run. Instead, he and his family have stayed in Ukraine to defend their land and precious culture, history and national identity. Indeed, President Voldomyr Zelensky, a comedic actor turned president turned Winston Churchill, famously told us: “I need ammunition. I don’t need a ride,” and stayed put with his fellow Ukrainians.

The undeclared war against Ukraine unleashed by Russia on February 24 demonstrates the inhuman face of a country that called Ukrainians brothers.

Russian bombs continue to fall on schools, hospitals, maternity houses.

After Russia’s bombing the civil quarters of the city of Mariupol of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in his emotional address said:

“Children’s Hospital. Maternity house. How did they threaten the Russian Federation? What kind of country is this – the Russian Federation, which is afraid of hospitals, is afraid of maternity houses and destroys them? Were there little Bandera? Pregnant women were going to shoot at Rostov? Did someone in the maternity house humiliate Russian language speakers? What was it? Denazification of the hospital?”

No – this is genocide, this is fascism in a new guise – rushism. Numerous facts of the atrocities of Russian soldiers, which fall under the definitions of genocide and crimes against humanity, will become the basis of the indictment against Russia and its leaders. All of them will be in the dock of the new Nuremberg and it will take place in the city of Kharkov, destroyed by the rushists.

The cold shower of the defeat of the Russian army in the war against Ukraine should wake the citizens of Russia from the lethargic sleep of national conformism and to refuse to support not only the current Putin regime, but also not to allow such non-humans to head the state in the future. I am sure that such an awakening should happen soon, when the truth hidden by the Kremlin about the losses of the “best army in the world” in 15 days of aggression against Ukraine is revealed to the Russians – 1105 armored personnel carriers, 335 tanks, 49 fighter jets, 81 helicopters, 526 vehicles and many other military equipment. And the most painful will be information about the number of killed Russian warriors – 12 thousand. It will be a shock for Russian families when they find out about the refusal of the Russian leadership to take out the corpses from Ukraine and to destroy them on the spot. This is not what Orthodox Christians do, but non-humans.

The abbreviation “RF” for the Russian Federation should be read today as “Russian Fascism”.


Ambassador Dr. Yuriy Sergeyev, was Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations (2007-2015) and is Member of the Board of Directors, of the Ukrainian Association on Foreign Policy.

The America Times was re-born on September 11, 2021, with the goal to better inform our leaders and policymakers of nuances, beyond conventional wisdom, to successfully address present day “Gordion Knots,” sometimes as Alexander the Great did by cutting it and other times by tediously unraveling it. During January 2022, diplomacy is at a fever pitch in Washington D.C., Moscow, Kyiv, Vienna, Geneva and Brussels, as a 100,000 Russian troops are keeping Ukraine’s borders “warm” in the Russian Winter. And, starting January 1st, five days before our one-year anniversary of our January 6th, Kazakhstan experienced peaceful protects, taken over by organized violent, radical, terrorist insurrection, and President Tokayev sought CSTO Peacekeepers to come and leave, restored law & order, and is now causing major reforms to secular democratic Kazakhstan. Given the CSTO success in Kazakhstan, we can hope - updating James A. Baker's Dec 5, 1993 Op-Ed in LA Times - that NATO & CSTO can merge to achieve President Biden’s goal of a united, free and stable Europe.

We are honored and privileged to have H. E. Yuriy Sergeyev  – a geopolitical and diplomatic star of Ukraine, including, having served as Permanent Representative to the United Nations from 2008 to 2016, and as a non-member represented Ukraine in the UNSC from 2014 - 2016, and has served as a bilateral ambassador to Greece, Albania, France, the Bahamas, and UNESCO

– join the Honorary Board of Advisors & Columnists of The America Times in recognition of his excellence and record of contributions. Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev’s life experiences and diplomatic service, including, teaching at Yale University, helps him to better decipher the unshared motives of geopolitical leaders and unspoken goals of geopolitical events, which he will share from time to time on our pages. This will serve to form a more perfect nation, and world, and thereby enhance both regional and global peace and security.

Benjamin Franklin famously said in 1787: “It’s a republic madam, if you can keep it.” Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev’s contributions in The America Times will help us keep our Republic. Please enjoy his accomplishments, along with a few pictures – in various settings, including, in the UNSC, and with his colleagues as he is honored with the Diwali Power of One award at the United Nations Trusteeship Council, the Oscars of Diplomacy, in 2017.
