Young Ukrainians – Everyday Fears, Military Propaganda and Chauvinism

Regardless of the war propaganda – the dreams of young Ukrainians do not differ from the hopes and expectations of their peers from other peripheral parts of the world. Maybe just a little more prematurely grown bitterness and distrust in them. Perhaps they are also more divided than the neighbouring youth – not only by social and class barriers, but also by a different historical or linguistic experience. This is confirmed by the research carried out last year by the Research Centre PULS from Odessa.

Everyday frightening the world with war in Ukraine distracts from the country’s everyday problems. And yet people, especially those aged 14-18, do not live there “between one Putin’s invasion and another”. Although, of course, living in the information society, additionally strongly politicised – they are forced to receive information and stimuli of a political and ideological nature at least passively.

{As few people in the West know, on 2nd May 2014 in Odessa, during the attack of extreme Ukrainian nationalists on participants of a demonstration in defence of the right to use the Russian language – 46 Russian-speaking people were intentionally burned in the Trade Union House, and over 200 were injured.

Meanwhile, about 35 percent. young Ukrainians have never heard of these events from less than 8 years ago! Obviously, this proportion is decreasing among those living in the South and East of the country. 52% surveyed describes the incident as a “tragedy”. In turn, in Western Ukraine 24% young Ukrainians agree that the death of their countrymen was just “a victory over pro-Russian separatists”.

There is no place for “aliens”?
A study aimed at detecting the level of xenophobia sheds additional light on this far-reaching polarization. It must not be forgotten that an important and controversial element of Ukrainian historical policy is the official cult of anti-Soviet armed organizations that actively collaborated with Hitler during the Second World War and participated in the Holocaust organisation.}

{The official role model for Ukrainian schoolchildren is Stepan Bandera, in the 1940s the leader of the Nazi Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, personally responsible for the mass murder of Ukrainian Jews and other minorities, as well as people suspected of Communism and leftist views.

After the war, Bandera avoided punishment, cooperating with American and British intelligence before being murdered in 1959 by a Soviet agent.

Does Ukrainian youth really follow the thought of the one demanding from his supporters “You will not hesitate to commit even the greatest crime, if the good of the Cause demands it” and “With hatred and deceit you will receive the enemies of Your Nation”?}

This figure has been mentioned throughout a number of articles I have posted over the years related to his ideology with several people and groups. There's no length in the hypocrisy the western nations will use to achieve their capitalist agendas of control. With hatred AND deceit......pretty much strengthens the foundation of dissenting opinions on this issue.

{In this specific popularity ranking, almost exclusively Americans (25%) are more widely accepted as “close friends”, while 75%of respondents can only imagine other Ukrainians as close family members. Several years of intense nationalist and jingoist propaganda have done a lot of evil…}

In other words. Some degree of 75% may consider us to be open for kill on sight while using us to fund and support their morally bankrupt ideology. Of course unless you're willing to go live there and be used also as we found out recently.

The group as a whole or the article?

@William_Mary I’m not sure I understand your question. When I click your link the website prompts me to change my cookie settings. I stopped there and closed the page.

@Garban that would suggest you have a blocker on your computer that isn't accepting the advertisements on the site. Possibly a notice to receive updates on their activity also. The following is a message on the top of their homepage

{This website uses cookies in order to improve your browsing experience. By continuing to use this site you agree to the use of cookies.}

A lot of sites require you to allow access. Some can or can't be ignored. And I don't see any corporate advertising on the site for that to be an issue other than a few social media groups. Which you probably already have on your device. If you can bypass that message you should be safe. I've been using this site for years and it has never given me any issues though.

@William_Mary sorry I’m a NoGo for sites with an agenda that requires that level of access to my browser information. It’s very suspicious and you should check your settings for spyware?

@Garban I've never had a warning from my security provider in regards to that site. I highly understand your concerns though. Many of the MSCM sites I attempt to enter when I'm trying to view from within other peoples post, comments, or social media I'm on, attempt to have me turn off my advertising blocker or except their cookies. Which I refuse also. I get plenty of opportunities towards their information and deceptions elsewhere on other floormates, and or where my sources use them as a means to expose their deceptions. See below for the article content.

Internal break
Everyday frightening the world with war in Ukraine distracts from the country’s everyday problems. And yet people, especially those aged 14-18, do not live there “between one Putin’s invasion and another”. Although, of course, living in the information society, additionally strongly politicised – they are forced to receive information and stimuli of a political and ideological nature at least passively.

And so, for example 72% of respondents consider human rights issues important. However, are they respected in their own country? Well, 42% think so, but another 39% teenagers are convinced that not at all. Moreover, the closer to adulthood – the more doubters. The inhabitants of the south of the country clearly have more reasons to doubt, especially Russian-speaking and students. Is it the heritage of ethnic tensions that have continued since 2014 – or is it also the result of these areas’ recent turbulent pasts?

As few people in the West know, on 2nd May 2014 in Odessa, during the attack of extreme Ukrainian nationalists on participants of a demonstration in defence of the right to use the Russian language – 46 Russian-speaking people were intentionally burned in the Trade Union House, and over 200 were injured.

Meanwhile, about 35 percent. young Ukrainians have never heard of these events from less than 8 years ago!

Does Ukrainian youth really follow the thought of the one demanding from his supporters “You will not hesitate to commit even the greatest crime, if the good of the Cause demands it” and “With hatred and deceit you will receive the enemies of Your Nation”?

Unfortunately, at least partially yes – 35% teenagers do not see a place in Ukraine for Russians, 26 percent. for Arabs, 25 percent would not like Jews to be the inhabitants or even tourists in the Ukrainian state.

In this specific popularity ranking, almost exclusively Americans (25%) are more widely accepted as “close friends”, while 75%of respondents can only imagine other Ukrainians as close family members. Several years of intense nationalist and jingoist propaganda have done a lot of evil…

Run as far as possible!
But after all young Ukrainians are no different from their peers, knowing well that their future in own country, still subjected to the oligarchs’ rule – is at least questionable. 55% of teenagers plan emigration, of which 28% are ambitiously dreaming of the United States, 16% would realistically be satisfied with work or studies in neighbouring Poland, and 11% in the Czech Republic. Why do they want to emigrate? Has the situation in Ukraine not improved after 2014 and the victory of pro-Western forces? 39% did not see any positive changes, 17% believe that it is even worse, and only 21 percent. believes there has been an improvement.

And would they themselves support that coup (“revolution&rdquo😉? 36% can’t answer, 33% would certainly not go to that Maidan and 31% perhaps would follow parents demonstrating then in Kiev against the Government and for European integration.

How many Ukraines?
Research confirms that, unlike in the Western media, there is no single Ukraine, and the differences between the inhabitants of individual regions are significant and potentially antagonising. 72% of teenagers, when asked about the level of trust, replied that in any relations with others they will maintain a high degree of distrust and scepticism. 55% see no possibility, sense or need of any political and social activity. 46% agree that “not everyone in Ukraine today can freely express their views”. But in same time between 91 and 98% of the respondents declare themselves unequivocally Ukrainian – although 42% think that this can be both a source of pride and shame. And to complete the picture, it is worth adding that in the South, East and the Centre of the country between 40 and 61% declare themselves bilingual, both Ukrainian and Russian, while this indicator in Western Ukraine drops to only 5%compared to a 94% advantage solely of Ukrainian.

No future – no hope?
Modern Ukrainians are not only subjected to geopolitical pressure from Russia, but still have a number of historical and cultural ties with her. At the same time, there is intensively implemented economic and civilizational transformational dictate of Western Liberal Capitalism. The internal situation is the aftermath of several decades of oligarchy, and earlier of the Soviet state quasi-capitalism.

Subjective lack of prospects is therefore accompanied by a natural increase in frustration, channelled through stimulating xenophobia and emigration pressure, again primarily in the interests of Western labour markets. Ukrainian youth are discouraged, do not see any sense in their own activity, and see own future primarily outside the country. Neither of these problems can be solved by war propaganda, nor by sending these young people to the front to kill and die at the hands of the similar peers from Russia or the Donbass. Meanwhile, the only response to embittered and disillusioned young Ukrainians from the US and the UK – remain guns, the vision of marvelous capitalism and the promise of a minimum wage job in the West…
