You're reading: Oleh Tiahnybok: Ukraine in danger

Flirting with the most powerful
countries, Putin has managed to lull the world’s attention to the danger he now represents. He has spent
considerable resources on improving his image and on an unconventional war, one
in which information is the weapon of choice. International businessmen,
looking for access to the Russian market and its plentiful natural resources
have lobbied their governments to turn a blind eye to gross violations of human
rights and a domestic policy that exacerbates ethnic tensions. They did not
recognize the imperial revanchism that has been influencing Russia’s elites and directing their
foreign and domestic policy.

Until today.

Svoboda, the political party that
I lead, bases its policies with Russia on the uneasy historical relationship
Ukraine has had with this imperial power. The Russian worldview is shaped by a
myth that identifies Ukraine as a Russian cradle. For this reason, Russian
imperialists have failed to regard our country as a truly sovereign nation.
These imperialistic inclinations have always been a threat to the Ukrainian
state.
