Julian Assange asks why the US said nothing when Obama supported Ukrainian neo-Nazis

Julian Assange asks why the US said nothing when Obama supported Ukrainian neo-Nazis | 14 Aug 2017 | Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has sent a series of highly apposite Tweets regarding the recent right-wing versus left-wing protests in Charlottesville that have resulting in one death and multiple injuries. In one tweet, Assange juxtaposed an image of a neo-Nazi torch march in Kiev with the far-right torch march in Charlottesville. Apart from the torches, it is clear that the Ukrainian fascists were far more equipped for violence as they were wearing bullet-proof combat gear and facial coverings. The Ukrainian neo-Nazis got scant political coverage in the Western media in spite of the fact that their actions included overthrowing a legitimate government as recognised by the United Nations and the installation of a fascist regime which continues to wage a war of aggression on the peoples of Donbass.
