FASCISM, as a socio-political phenomenon, HAS FIVE CHARACTERISTIC SYMPTOMS:
- The chauvinism of a great world power.
- The merging of all branches of power – the executive, legislative, and judicial branches – with the institutions of force, media, and the business elite.
- Aggression toward neighboring states and annexation of adjacent territories.
- Persecution of dissidents and politically motivated assassinations.
- The idolization of the Fuhrer.
All of these symptoms can be found in today’s Russia. Neither symptom can be found in Ukraine. Some of these symptoms can be found in some of the other republics of the former USSR. Fascism, as a synonym of national-socialism, includes all of the symptoms listed above, in full and simultaneously.
Today, the Coalition has brought together many civil society activists and NGOs from 16 countries: Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Netherlands, France, Great Britain, Georgia, Armenia, Israel, Canada, and the U.S.
The main goal of the Coalition is to change the criminal regime in Russia through active propaganda and information campaigns targeted at Russian citizens in all parts of the country. To achieve this goal, we will use all legal methods and tools, including the distribution of free periodicals, the establishment of an independent opposition TV channel “New Russia” broadcasting from Helsinki through the Western satellites, and the interactive website of the Coalition. The funds raised will be used to purchase printing equipment, to publish the opposition bulletins weekly in the largest cities of Russia, and to lobby in the United States for the allocation of the funds necessary to launch the opposition TV channel “New Russia.”
The first major project of the Coalition will be a photo exhibition “Crimes of Donbass (LPR-DPR) terrorists against humanity,” which is scheduled to open in June 2015 in Washington, DC, and New York (USA). The Coalition plans to take the exhibition from the U.S. to Canada and to Paris, Brussels, London, Rome and Madrid, as well as to Tokyo, Sydney, and Melbourne. This photo exhibition will make a profound impact on the consciousness of the citizens of the above countries and help them understand what is happening in Ukraine.
