” Putin Khuylo ” or Putin’s Goebbels School of Propaganda

Language is a wonderful thing and the ability to communicate is fascinating. Very often phrases get lost in translation and rather than clarifing one point or another they become obfuscated. The need to clearly communicate becomes even more challenging during times of crisis and war. Russia would like the world to believe that the violent events in Ukraine are due to fascist leadership in Ukraine, which could not be further from the truth.

With the election results in from the presidential elections held on May 25, 2014 it becomes extremely clear to anyone who can think clearly, that the so-called “fascists” as portrayed by Moscovy are so far from being in power – Putin and company must be smoking or ingesting some really powerful mind altering substances, or not, and they are simply conducting an informational war. The informational war is aimed at two different audiences, the people of Russia who Putin really doesn't give a shit about and just wants to along with the lefties and far right in the West.

With Ukraine's far-right party Правий Сектор [Right Sector] garnering very little of the popular support at the May 25, 2014 Presidential and municipal elections in Ukraine, “Putin's well-worn fascist lies” are starting to run a little thin. A letter which I posted at the request of some some of its signatories back on December 12, 2013 entitled: “Open Statement to the International Democratic Community from Ukraine” provides evidence that the “Nazi-like” activities were coming from Moscovy and not from within Ukraine itself. The rhetoric coming out of Moscovy regarding anti-semetism was long ago debunked in the same letter, though most sensationalists don't bother listening to the people in the heart of “Maidan” and the ousting of one of Ukraine's biggest criminal-presidents Viktor Yanukovych.

While the, “Right Sector, an organization made up of ultranationalist and extremist groups (a couple of them bordering on being neofascist), conducted a "rescue mission," in which the car of the group's leader, Dmytro Yarosh, was used to evacuate the family of an Israeli citizen from fighting in Ukraine's east. They also helped remove anti-Jewish graffiti from a synagogue's walls and met with the Israeli ambassador in Kiev.” It becomes even more clear that the “Hotbed of Anti-Semites” as Putin claims is nothing but a pile of shit!

Anti propaganda and the truth

Russia is following in the footsteps of Joseph Goebbels when comes to ramping up propaganda regarding the events in Ukraine. There is now no freedom of the press in and in order that the rest of the world really understands who Vladimir Putin is a simple phrase has emerged during the protests. That phrase is very simple and succinct as communication should be - “Putin Khuylo!” In fact yesterday it made its way around on social media, particularly on Twitter, where I know I personally helped disseminate the Urban Dictionary defintion of this very succint phrase!
It reads as follows:
I have no issue with the definition – though the transliteration is incorrect and should be “Khuylo”, derived from the word “Khuy” and not “huy”. Folks at @urbandictionary please do take note and modify your definition to be properly transliteration! The cyrillic letter “X” is pronounced like “Kh” as in the word Khan and not as the word Hand.

Given the evidence, Putin can not be trusted – and like Goebbels he is lying to his own people and the world. Don't be fooled by him. Today a Russian drone was shot down in the east of Ukraine. Explain to me where “peaceful ethnic Russian protestors” would get access to such an aerial piece of equipment? In short – Putin Khuylo and so is Georgiy Mamedov.
