Newsweek Nazi Hypocrisy Exposed: Juxtaposed Articles Highlight Nazi Glorification and Obfuscation Conducted by ‘News’ Propaganda Outlet

On January 5, 2018 US media outlet Newsweek published the following article.



A reclusive neo-Nazi who co-runs the white supremacist Daily Stormer website, and recently said Jewish children “deserve to die,” has Jewish relatives on “both sides of his family,” his mother told Newsweek.

The above Newsweek article covers various aspects of the American far-right and the subject person within that may or may not be true, judging from the way the information is presented. It is not my goal to analyze the accuracy of the above mentioned Newsweek article with this post.

Instead, the purpose of this post is to simply point out the blatant hypocrisy conducted on the part of Newsweek as, during the publication of the above-mentioned article, they have neglected to inform their current readership about the fact that on August 15, 2015 Newsweek ran a lengthy article that glorified Swedish Nazis sniper Mikel Skillt of the pro Nazi far-right Azov Battalion of the Ukrainian National Guard.

A simple read through the Newsweek article linked directly above reveals that it glorifies the actions of self confessed Swedish neo-nazi Mikael Skillt as he conducts warfare against the men and women fighting for their lives against the Ukrainian regime in Donbass in the breakaway regions of Ukraine. The Newsweek article does this under the false premise that Mikael Skillt is righteous in his actions because he is fighting a {quote} “Russian invasion”.

It is now the year 2018, the so called “Russian invasion” that western media outlets and governments predicted and portrayed never came. There always were approximately 8 million ethnic Russians living in East Ukraine with over 4 million ethnic Russians in the breakaway regions. In actuality, over 1.8 million refugees fled TO RUSSIA. There is no verifiable evidence to back up the assertions made by the post coup Ukrainian government that a ‘Russian invasion” ever occurred.

In contrast, there is extensive first person victim evidence uploaded online that shows clearly that the Ukrainian Right Sector National Guard battalions (funded by western governments) have been bombing and killing innocent civilians in their homes in the breakaway regions of East Ukraine for the past three years. This continual shelling is occurring on a daily basis and is being downplayed, misreported and obfuscated by the OSCE in Donetsk, and western media outlets. At the conclusion of this post I will provide links to the daily video reports of Patrick Lancaster who is the only American reporter actually reporting on the ground in the breakaway regions of Donetsk and Lughansk.

Regarding the presentation of the Newsweek Skillt article, it is written in a manner that portrays the killer Mikael Skillt as a hero amongst the Ukrainian Right Sector Azov battalion units. It uses phrases such as “He has an easygoing demeanor and matter-of-fact way of speaking. He is quick to make a self-deprecating joke” and “He looks a little softer now than in some of the pictures of him on the front lines, the result of the more sedentary life of an instructor at Azov Battalion’s base in downtown Kiev—and, he says, of the cooking of his girlfriend, Anna. “Ukrainian women don’t like skinny men,” he explains.”

Note the way Newsweek attempts to portray him as a nice, normal guy with endearing human qualities? His “girlfriend is cooking”…….he “makes light self deprecating jokes”…..he “looks softer”. These are obvious propagandist forms of writing and portrayal.

Other obvious bits of propaganda attempting to make Skillt seem more likeable include “He throws a few lighthearted jabs making fun of Spider’s dating habits”……..“Ukraine gave me purpose,” Skillt says, “and I think a man needs a purpose”……..”Skillt had survived his first battle, killed for the first time. “Ten hours of fighting and not a scratch,” he says: “Now I knew I could react. I could survive and I could work good. It was a big boost to know I was not useless.”…..“He has always been a very confident man in his nature, almost to the grade that one might think that he believes he can fight the gods himself,” Nilsson says: “This is where I find the change in him during this war to be the greatest. He still has his confidence, but he is more humble”……….”Skillt: war made me into a much better person.”

All the above phrases are scattered throughout the Newsweek article, and juxtaposed with little bits of truth related to the fact that Mikael Skillt is a self professed neo-nazi and that the Ukrainian National Guard Azov Battalion is also comprised of neo-nazis who openly worship WW2 Nazi collaborator Stephan Bandera. The Ukrainian Insurgent Army troops led by Stephan Bandera in WW2 were responsible for the killing of over 100,000 Poles and Jews in the regions of Volhnya and Galicia.

Regarding the Azov battalion and its financiers, in the article Newsweek attempts to deflect from the fact that Ukrainian Jewish oligarch Igor Kolomoisky finances the far right pro Nazi Azov battalion, however Yahoo and Agence Presse France disclosed that very fact in an article in 2015.


Dnipro-1’s headquarters are on the ground floor of the Dnipropetrovsk administration building. Upstairs sits the regional governor, Igor Kolomoisky. The arrangement is no accident: Kolomoisky, one of Ukraine’s most controversial billionaires, funds the paramilitary, which returns the favour in these troubled times by boosting the banking and industrial tycoon’s personal security and political clout. All the signs are of a flourishing military enterprise. Young men with Kalashnikovs and pistols and several well dressed women working on laptops fill the anteroom to Bereza’s office.

Dnipro-1 has 700 men — “officially,” Bereza says with an enigmatic smile. “Unofficially, it’s 7,000.”


Questions over the far right leanings of some volunteer groups and allegations of involvement in the murder of civilians cast a long shadow. One of the most controversial is the Azov Battalion, which uses the Wolfsangel insignia — an ancient design that was resurrected in Hitler’s Germany. The Azov has been linked to Oleg Lyashko, a politician accused of neo-Nazi sympathies. Right Sector, an ultra-nationalist party, also has its own battalion of several hundred men on the frontlines, even if the government refuses to register or pay them. Dasha Slutskovska, a 29-year-old volunteer from the battalion in Dnipropetrovsk, conceded that Right Sector has an image problem — they are relentlessly portrayed in Russia’s state-controlled media as fascists.

Now to fully understand the scale of the Azov battalions military operations in Ukraine, I present the following videos from their own Azov Media You Tube channels posted in June 2015 showing the vehicles and equipment that have been supplied to them by complicit western governments.

The following link features over 20 videos which provide a pragmatic/realistic view of the fascist make-up and characteristics of the Ukrainian military battalions that the EU, US, Canada and Australia have been supporting, financing and weaponizing since the start of the Ukrainian coup/conflict in 2014.

The link above also contains the following articles that prove that western governments have been funding this pro Nazi National Guard battalion.




Last June, Congress passed a resolution intended to block American military funding for Ukraine from being used to provide training or weaponry for the Azov Battalion. Congress is reported to have recently repealed its ban on a Ukrainian militia accused of being neo-Nazi, opening the way for American military assistance.

Last June, Congress passed a resolution intended to block American military funding for Ukraine from being used to provide training or weaponry for the Azov Battalion, an independent unit that had been integrated into the former Soviet Republic’s national guard and was taking part in operations against Russian- backed rebels. Called a “neo-Nazi paramilitary militia” by Congressmen John Conyers Jr. and Ted Yoho, who cosponsored the bipartisan amendment, the battalion has been a source of controversy since its inception.

With the neo-Nazi Wolfsangel symbol on its unit flash – which resembles a black swastika on a yellow background – and founders drawn from the ranks of the paramilitary national socialist group called “Patriot of Ukraine,” the group would have been a fringe phenomenon in any Western nation, but with its army unequipped to face the separatist threat in the east, Kiev actually integrated Azov into its military forces.

According to a report in The Nation, the Pentagon lobbied the House Defense Appropriations Committee to remove the Conyers-Yoho amendment from the 2016 defense budget, claiming it was unnecessary as such funding was already prohibited under another law.

Now, considering that Newsweek decided to glorify Nazi sniper Mikael Skillt, let me show you what an an Azov battalion sniper hiding in the woods near Slavyansk did to a 30 year old school teacher Irina Boevets who was simply standing on her balcony in May 2014 waiting for her husband to come home. SHE WAS USED BY AN AZOV SNIPER …….FOR TARGET PRACTICE…..shot in the head and killed for no known reason whatsoever.

RT- Paula Slier story: ‘They need only blood’: Slavyansk woman killed by sniper fire on her balcony (GRAPHIC)


A 30-year-old civilian woman died after being shot in the head by sniper fire while standing on her balcony in Slavyansk. RT’s Paula Slier visited shocked relatives of the victim, who say a Ukrainian army sniper is responsible, though they don’t know why. Slier arrived to the small Slavyansk apartment just hours after Irina was murdered, a large pool of blood still marking the floor of the balcony. A hospital nurse earlier confirmed that the woman died of a gunshot wound to her head.

The apartment, located on the sixth floor of a small block of flats, appeared to be away from the recent fighting in Slavyansk, and no barricades or checkpoints could be seen anywhere near the area.

Irina, who was head of a department at a technical college in Slavyansk, never took part in any protests or fighting. However, when standing on her balcony and waiting for her husband to come home from a nearby garage, the woman was targeted by an unidentified sniper. Neighbors said they heard a popping sound coming from the trees opposite her window.

Slier spoke to the family of the victim, still in shock and disbelief at what happened.

Caveat: Many of the items I track down and post at Clarity of Signal are removed after I post them, thus screenshots help verify validity. Last year the site received tremendous views and drew the attention of the Atlantic Council which featured it in a slanderous piece and attempted to portray CoS as far-right and Neo-Nazi associated. That slanderous inaccurate piece by the Atlantic Council is here: –

Kremlin and Alt-Right Share “Nazi” Narrative – Digital Forensic Research Lab of the Atlantic Council – date August 18, 2017

Now, considering that Newsweek appears to currently want to expose Nazis wouldn’t it be better if they started looking within seeing how their article glorified and promoted Mikael Skillt as just “your everyday Nazi sniper” operating in Ukraine fighting a fake “Russian invasion” that never came? Maybe they should come clean about what they presented Nazi Mikael Skillt as a hero rather than the murderous nazi that he actually is?

For those looking for the real truth about the Ukrainian war and US/western support for Nazi groups, I recommend you watch this excellent video from the Australia based Watchdog Media, alas, I’m sure you won’t find much of what is shown in it reported by Newsweek which has constantly inaccurately ‘reported’ the facts about the Ukraine war and western government support for pro-Nazi groups since the very beginning of hostilities in February 2014.

Oh and in case your wondering what happened to Mikael Skillt, he’s still up and running on Twitter. When it comes to the current censorship agenda, apparently Twitter feels he deserves a free pass – Featured in his  Tweet below is Ukrainian National Guard battalion commander and politician Oleg Lyashko that Skillt promotes holding a sniper rifle. Oleg Lyashko is also featured amongst the twenty videos showing the fascist battalions in Ukraine linked above using torture to attain confessions alongside other members of the Azov Battalion.

Note also that the Azov Battalion Nazis also still have their You Tube channels up and running (as proven above) and have not been censored in any way, shape or form in any western country, including in Germany where new hate crime laws have been enacted targeted at people who criticize people of Jewish descent and immigrants. The Azov Nazis apparently receive a completely free pass from all western governments.

Germany kicks year off with strict online hate speech law Social media companies failing to remove offending posts in 24 hours risk huge fines.

U.S. Media Blackout on Ukrainian Army Shelling and Killing of Civilians Continues…..OSCE Ignores Azimuth and Trajectory of Fire

These are the current videos coming out of the war zone where American investigative journalist Patrick Lancaster is located and has been reporting on the killing of Donbass civilians by the Ukrainian army who have been relentlessly attacking the breakaway regions for the past 2.5 years. In the past week shellings have escalated and a number of civilians have been killed. The US and EU media are completely ignoring what is currently going on in the Ukrainian war zones. It has completely fallen off their radar that Ukraine’s Right Sector National Guard battalions continue firing upon and killing innocent civilians. The video’s below prove such……

Proof Ukraine forces fired artillery on a residential area today

Published on Feb 1, 2017
Today artillery was fired on the residential neighborhood of Ockobersky in the Kyivs’kyi district of Donetsk. I went to the site and investigated the direction of fire. My conclusion using all the facts available was that the shells had to have been fired from Ukraine Government controlled territory. At least 4 Apt. building were hit.

The OSCE’s Alexander Hug continues to cover up for the Kiev regimes slaughter of civilians in Donbass. All victims are in Donbass. The OSCE clearly are aware of the direction of fire from which the shells came that killed those civilians. They know the Azimuth (trajectory and distance of rounds) as reported in Patrick Lancaster’s videos above, however, they always defer reporters to their online reports which strangely neglect to ever conclude that the Ukrainian army is the entity that fired on the civilian homes where people were killed. This has been going on for the past 2 years and 7 months. The OSCE is complicit in the coverup of the warcrimes.

More civilians affected over the last few months. Once again there was no reporting of these warcrimes in any western media.

German Media Suspects Kiev of Deliberately Fueling Conflict in Donbass
February 1, 2017

Berlin authorities suspect that Poroshenko bears responsibility for the deteriorating situation in the east of Ukraine, German Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper wrote. According to the newspaper, the Ukrainian government is trying to aggravate the situation in the country so that US President Donald Trump would abandon his plans on lifting sanctions against Moscow.

“The Ukrainian military is currently trying to shift the situation at the front line to their favor. Apparently, they accept the fact that tensions are increasing […]. Behind this position, according to some members of the German administration, could be an attempt to worsen the situation to the extent that US President Donald Trump’s plans to ease the sanctions are suspended,” the newspaper wrote.
German Government ‘Decisively Condemns’ Latest Escalation in East Ukraine

“According to Berlin’s interpretation, Poroshenko is ready to do anything to prevent the withdrawal of the sanctions,” the article said.
At the same time, German authorities believe that Kiev’s calculation can prove counterproductive. For instance, Donald Trump could ease the sanctions against Moscow regardless of how the situation in Ukraine might develop.

“In this case, Kiev will have to face double damage: an improvement in the situation for Russia with the simultaneous intensification of the conflict in the Eastern Ukraine. Whether it is possible to dissuade Kiev from its own provocations, Berlin doesn’t dare to predict,” the article said.
