Ukrainians in Kiev are protesting US funding the war against Ukrainian people outside the US Embassy in Kiev. Why isn't it reported? They want US involvement to stop and for all Ukrainians to be safe.

The UN is studying Prizrak Battalion's humanitarian aid method as the exemplary model of how aid can be delivered under wartime conditions. Kiev on the other hand, has kept both food and medicine blockaded from entering Donbass from their side. Instead of ongoing talks which were agreed on, Kiev suspended human rights for the people in Donbass. Which of the two groups support our values?

If Supplying Weapons To Nazi's is Against American Values, can American citizens do it on their own?

The answer is a clear and resounding no! Its against Federal Law and one group has been in violation of this law since before February 8 th , 2014 at Maidan. The DOJ set a precedent early this year by invoking this law against American citizens.

In January 2015 the DOJ charged American citizens with conspiring to violate the Neutrality Act which states- Whoever, within the United States, knowingly begins or sets on foot or provides or prepares a means for or furnishes the money for, or takes part in, ...against the territory or dominion of any foreign prince or state, or of any colony, district, or people with whom the United States is at peace, shall be"...

In this most recent case addressed by Attorney General Eric Holder "These defendants stand accused of conspiring to carry out the violent overthrow of a foreign government , in violation of US law,..." Holder was referring to 6 US citizens that tried to overthrow the government of Gambia, which incidentally unlike pre-Maidan Ukraine is recognized as having one of the worst human rights records in the world.

The bottom line at the DOJ- It is illegal for US citizens to start a war with a country the US is at peace with.

The absolute irony is that the Neutrality Act of 1794 was amended in the 1930's by Senator Gerald Nye to keep American's from supporting the rise of Hitler's 3 rd Reich or any of the other nazi countries or groups supporting him which would include Bandera's Ukrainian Nationalist OUNb. Is it a coincidence that the UCCA and Ukrainian emigres in America were a focus of this as well as the "White Book" Nazi investigations held by HUACC from 1934-37?

Between 1940-42 Stepan Bandera and the Ukrainian OUNb attempted to assassinate sitting president Franklin Delano Roosevelt to answer to this insult.

Later the Ukrainian Nazi assassination attempt of Roosevelt would prove to be the main reason behind Stepan Bandera not becoming a US citizen after WW2 when US intelligence made the OUNb the darlings of the Cold War.

The UCCA and associated groups petitioned to allow the immigration of their mass murdering leader into the US until the 1950's. Both Bandera and the UCCA gained considerable protection and prestige with the rise of Senator Joseph McCarthy.

Maidan- The Violations of the Neutrality Act by American OUNb Ultra-Nationalists

Prior to February 22, 2014 was the United States at war with Ukraine? That is the benchmark question that needs to be answered. Ukraine didn't have the human rights violations Gambia does. Even if it did, the prosecution of 6 US citizens for importing 30+ automatic weapons and conspiring to commit a coup has earned the perpetrators up to 25 years in prison for their trouble.

" The whole country approach has been in use in Ukraine since the spring of 2014. If we step back to Maidan on February 8th 2014 we see the last objective statement about Ukraine. "" Russian websites outright accusing the US of supplying ammunition and other support to the rebels. I asked a friend in a position within the US, that might know more about this, he claims it is a private initiative of US citizens. This I like "" - Joel Harding

On February 8th, the Maidan protest was just that, only a protest. On the basis of this statement from someone "in the know" this admission needs to be investigated because it is a flagrant violation of the Neutrality Act that will yield the Gambian conspirators 25 years for a 6 man operation. Among the other charges the Gambian Americans face are moving weapons and ammo without a permit.
