Charles Byrd: Don’t support brutal Ukraine rulers

A week before this writing, in Odessa, Ukraine, Pravyi Secktor shock troops herded 42 pro-autonomy activists into a burning building. Those not burned to death or asphyxiated by the smoke fell to their death from the windows in an attempt to escape fiery death. The Pravyi Secktor (Right Sector) and their bosses in Kiev are boasting of this atrocity on the Internet, even comparing it to gathering beetles in a jar and burning them. In light of these events, anyone who continues to say that the fascist putsch regime in Kiev is worthy of American support regardless of the cost in blood and treasure is either delusional or exceptionally malevolent.
