Neo-nazis may be among the recipients of the $500M in taxpayer money Trudeau is loaning Ukraine
CTV News: 'Justin Trudeau says Canada will provide a $500-million loan to Ukraine as the threat of a Russian attack grows. He says this is on top of a previously announced $120-million loan. Trudeau also says Canada will provide $7.8 million worth of lethal equipment.'
The Trudeau regime has not yet publicly noted if they'd specified to the Zelensky government whether or not this money can be directed towards the neo-nazi battalion.
Counter Punch: 'Ukraine is now experiencing a militarized resurgence of Nazism. In 2014, a Ukrainian neo-Nazi militia called Azov Battalion was formed to combat Russian separatism. It was then incorporated into the national guard, making it an official part of the Ukrainian military. There is no secrecy about the unit’s ideological commitments. Azov members wear uniforms adorned with SS symbols, swastikas, and patches celebrating Nazism. Its leader once stated that “The historic mission of our nation in this critical moment is to lead the White Races of the world in a final crusade for their survival.”
'Azov Battalion has not only been legitimized by the Ukrainian government but has received support and training from both Canada and the United States. The unit’s officers have spoken publicly about the training they have received from Western military powers and the support that they have in Ukraine’s diaspora communities in North America.'
Wikipedia: Azov Battalion: 'is a right-wing extremist and Neo-Nazi Ukrainian National Guard unit, based in Mariupol, in the Azov Sea coastal region. It saw its first combat experience recapturing Mariupol from pro-Russian separatists forces in June 2014. Azov initially formed as a volunteer militia on 5 May 2014 during the Ukrainian crisis. On 12 November 2014, Azov was incorporated into the National Guard of Ukraine, and since then all members are contract soldiers serving in the National Guard of Ukraine...
'...In 2014, the regiment gained notoriety after allegations emerged of torture and war crimes as well as neo-Nazi sympathies and usage of associated symbols by the regiment itself, as seen in their logo featuring the Wolfsangel, one of the original symbols used by the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich. Representatives of the Azov Battalion say that the symbol is an abbreviation for the slogan Ідея Нації (Ukrainian for "National Idea") and deny connection with Nazism. In 2014, a spokesman for the regiment said around 10–20% of the unit were neo-Nazis. In 2018, a provision in an appropriations bill passed by the U.S. Congress blocked military aid to Azov on the grounds of its white supremacist ideology, however in 2015 a similar ban on aid to the group was overturned by the Congress. Members of the regiment come from 22 countries and are of various backgrounds.'
Ottawa Citizen: "Ukrainian unit accused of Neo-Nazi links wants Canada’s help": 'Andrey Dyachenko, a spokesman for the battalion, told USA Today in March that only 10 to 20 percent of the unit are Nazis. Last year, members of the battalion were shown on German television wearing helmets with Nazi insignia...The Azov Regiment is a recognized element of the national guard, and takes its direction from the Interior Ministry.'
Flashback: Ottawa Citizen: 'A year before the meeting, Canada’s Joint Task Force Ukraine produced a briefing on the Azov Battalion, acknowledging its links to Nazi ideology.'
So while persecuting peaceful protesters in Canada and destroying the Canadian working-class, Trudeau is likely funding neo-nazi militants abroad with taxpayer money.
The question remains: did the Trudeau Liberals specify that our tax dollars cannot go to the neo-nazis?
