Is Vladimir Putin Another Adolf Hitler?

There are 3306 comments on the Free Republic story from Apr 17, 2014, titled Is Vladimir Putin Another Adolf Hitler?. In it, Free Republic reports that:

As Mein Kampf makes clear, Hitler sought to unite all the people of German speech and culture into one state, or Reich, preferably by peaceful negotiation, otherwise by war and conquest... Today's drift toward war with Russia seems like a replay of the past.

Funny made-up concepts of bogus law are all you have in reply? So the UN is "irrelevant" when it disagrees with fascist Russia and agreed border changes are somehow not in effect if you change your mind sixty years later? Then, you claim a fantasy "invasion" of Russia by BELGIUM?????!!!!!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
You Russo-fascists really CRACK ME UP!
And yes, you are ignorant of the FACT that Russia APPROVED the annexation of Crimea by Ukraine more than a half-century ago. The fact that the Soviet Union was a total failure does not undo the FACT of Crimea being part of Ukraine. You pay RENT do you, then STEAL the rental property like a common thief? That makes it right, does it?
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
No one but the owner can legally give property to someone else. Khrushchev was not an owner of Crimea. Russian people, and primarily citizens of Crimea, were the owners. Nobody asked them, or even their representatives in Duma, whether they want to give their Crimea to Ukraine. Duma opposed the Crimea being taken by Ukraine when Ukraine was separating from the USSR. Duma voted twice, asking Jeltsin to reclaim Crimea.

Crimea was acquired by Russian king, and settled by Russian people. Russia ruled Crimea for about three centuries. Russian people defended Crimea in two wars against invaders; and many Russian lives were lost in defending Crimea. Ukrainians did nothing for Crimea.

At the point of recent referendum there were 60% of Russians residing in Crimea, and only 20% of Ukrainians. There are no legitimate criteria by which the Crimea would be Ukrainian.

One American political analyst said it so accurately:`The Crimea in the possession of Ukraine is like a child living with the step-mother`.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
The UN is run by Americans. The Americans are on Ukrainians side because they wanted to place NATO on Crimea, and they knew that Ukrainians are sold-outs, and the West can get anything from them.

Countries which respect the law are supporting Russia. It is true that they are not powerful colonizing empires like the countries that support the Ukraine, but they support Russia because legality is on the Russian side.

Countries that have an agenda in dictating other countries’ borders are supporting the Ukraine. They are not doing that because Ukraine is right, because it is not, and they know that. But, they have their own interests in supporting Ukraine, which are already put on sale.

You are quite correct. I am not an expert on Ukrainian history, but looking at old maps I believe that the whole Black Sea coast was Russian territory.

Enter Ihor Kolomoisky, a 51-year-old outspoken banking tycoon. Now recently appointed by the country's president as governor of Dnipropetrovsk region in eastern Ukraine, he has decided to dip into his fortune to bolster that army and defend the homeland.
View Graphics

So far, that has included buying tires, car batteries and fuel for army units, as well outfitting local militias.

But critics question Mr. Kolomoisky's motives, pointing out that he and other oligarchs in Ukraine may have more financial than altruistic reasons for maintaining the status quo. For years now, critics say, the oligarchs' powerful influence over many industries have blocked economic reforms in a country that has one of Europe's lowest average per capita incomes.

"These are precisely the opposite of the sorts of people would you want to appoint" as governors, said Mark Kramer, professor of Cold War studies at Harvard University. "It's hard for me to see why those who fought for change in Ukraine would want such people in charge."

In a rare interview, Mr. Kolomoisky declined to say how much he is spending personally to build up what his aides call the "Kolomoisky army," but experts estimate it is about $10 million a month just to fund the salaries of militia and police units, some of whom technically report to Ukraine's army and interior ministry. His province now has close to 2,000 battle-ready troops in the field, his aides say. By comparison, Ukraine's army had only 6,000 through the entire country when Russia took control of the Crimean peninsula earlier this year.

Mr. Korban said business contacts from Privat Group, an informal nebula of companies controlled by Mr. Kolomoisky and his partners, have been useful in supplying the army and militia units, allowing him to contact heads of major local chains to cut deals for military supplies. The tycoon's team also funneled volunteers into a local militia, called the Dnipro Battalion, that were outfitted with gray SUVs and new uniforms. More lightly armed militias were cobbled together as well, to man checkpoints around the province.

Today the Dnipro Battalion has not only the 2,000 battle-ready troops, equipped with heavy weapons, but more than 20,000 in reserve.

Mr. Korban said Dnipropetrovsk is expanding the borders of its influence, with regional militias taking over four regions inside the adjacent province of Donetsk and installing regional administration heads who are friendly to Mr. Kolomoisky. Mr. Korban called it a "buffer zone" and said they were prepared to take four more regions.

He said Mr. Kolomoisky has brought in Romanian and Georgian military advisers to help with the training of troops, who in the Dnipro Battallion until recently only had a week of boot camp.

Shortly after they took over government buildings and police stations in April throughout his neighboring eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, the banking magnate offered bounties of up to $10,000 for the capture of the movement’s leaders and $1,000 for each rebel Kalashnikov. He is bankrolling paramilitary groups fighting alongside the national guard and has paid for gasoline to fuel Ukrainian military vehicles.

Oh, I like this part

Many Ukrainian oligarchs got rich using the same methods as their Russian counterparts — buying up state-owned enterprises and industries at cheap prices shortly after the breakup of the Soviet Union. They were often politically connected figures who had managed to accumulate capital under the Soviet system despite the strong official limits on such activities. They bought up Ukraine’s suddenly privatized heavy industries and export businesses, such as steel, coal and military machinery, vastly expanding their wealth almost overnight and creating a powerful elite.

In order to keep their empires and profits growing, the oligarchs used their fortunes to secure influence in the Ukrainian government, either by funding the campaigns of parliament deputies and their parties or by cutting deals to get political appointments for their loyalists. Many, including Poroshenko and Kolomoisky, bought up national media conglomerates with television, newspaper and magazine holdings and used the outlets to advance their agendas.

“The way the oligarchs work, they weren’t trying to establish themselves as political leaders,” Galeotti said.“What they wanted was enough autonomy so that they could do what they wanted and not worry about the state interfering.”

Many have expressed fears that Ukraine could slip into being run by warlords, each using his own military to protect narrow financial interests.

Russia is the worst place in Europe you could possibly go if you are gay. The way you will be treated is worse than anywhere in the civilised world by miles.

Since putin enacted his anti gay laws, US applications for asylum from Russians have gone up fourfold.

Gay people are literally fleeing for their lives.

Bearing in mind the amount of effort Russia put into making sure there were no independant observers of the 'elections' I'm going to say the crimeans NEVER got a say.

I'm also willing to bet that despite some tatars etc fleeing for their lives and changing the demographics, Russia STILL wouldn't want a free referendum in the crimea.

That is so sad :(

The positive aspect of the fleeing people; gays, Jews, Tatars, Ukrainians etc. etc., is that they have large and loving communities abroad, who will help them flee and settle down xx

They won't be left alone if they flee, that's for sure!

Kudos to all specific communities for helping their sisters and brothers in Ukraine ;)

that second video with the kids is horrible and totally unacceptible, children are born without prejudice and bigotry but are taught by family, friends and teachers, this is a prime example of a teacher molding the future, totally tasteless. What these people do not understand is this display also creates animosity with the people in Ukraine and will come back to bite innocent Russians, it certainly does not help the settling of the political situation but does represent Putin's opinion of Ukraine
