Responses to Ukraine’s Nazi Hit List from Around the World — Part 3By EIR
Aug. 20—This is the third installment of EIR’s roundup of response from around the world to the posting, by the U.S.-funded and State Department sponsored Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation (CCD), of a Black List—essentially a “hit list”—of 72 prominent individuals from many nations, accusing them of being Russian propaganda agents, “information terrorists,” and “war criminals,” due to their failure to submit to the U.S./UK/NATO “narrative” about the military operations in Ukraine. The first 30 people listed were members and friends of the Schiller Institute who had spoken at a Schiller Institute conference during this year. You can find Part 1 of this series here and Part 2 here. It should be noted first that the CCD and its sponsors in the U.S. State Department and U.S. and UK intelligence agencies decided on Aug. 11 to take down from its website the July 14 post targeting these 72 individuals. This was clearly the result of a vigorous, surgical, and rapid international mobilization, primarily catalyzed by the Schiller Institute, but also taken up on their own by like-minded, though politically distinct individuals. This EIR series of articles documents various aspects of this mobilization from India, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Greece, Italy, South Africa, Poland, France, New Zealand, and the U.S. The original intention behind the targeting of these individuals has in no way abated, however, and the mobilization is continuing and expanding, as indicated in the first item below.
Sixteen Americans targeted by the Ukraine CCD hit list jointly filed a letter with six Congressional committees demanding that they “exercise your oversight of the use of taxpayer funds by investigating the funding of this foreign government agency and their role in directly threatening Americans’ rights and safety.” The letter is printed together with the names of the sixteen signers elsewhere in this issue of EIR, and can also be seen here.
