No, Trump Supporters weren’t the ones instigating the Capitol riots on January 6th. Not only Antifa, but Ukrainian neo-Nazis were there instigating and partaking in violent activities as well.
Antifa, the group of domestic terrorists that tore apart cities in the US in 2020, ended up causing $2 billion in damage. It’s no surprise then to find out that Antifa’s roots are in communists and Nazis in Europe:

AntiFa’s history can be summarized like this — the group started out as the military wing of the German Communist Party (KPD). Before the rise of Hitler, they supported Stalin and Marxist socialism. Nazis were fascists. The KPD didn’t like other socialist groups so they were labeled fascist too.
The KPD’s armed group was AntiFa and they fought in the streets against every group the KPD labeled fascist. The KPD decided it liked Hitler so Stalin was fascist. Then Hitler was fascist again. After this they merged with the SA, better known as the Brownshirts and Stalin was fascist again.
It’s also no surprise that both Antifa and Neo-Nazis from Ukraine were involved in the violence at the Capitol on January 6th. We’ve already reported on numerous individuals who either are or appear to be members of Antifa who were at the Capitol on the 6th:
With the help of Yaacov Apelbaum, from the illustrated Primer, we know that Ukrainian Neo Nazis were at the Capitol on the 6th as well. One noted member of the fascist group who refers to itself as the Zhidobanderites, Sergai Dybynyn, was photographed at the Capitol with the man known as Jacob Anthony Chansley (see above). Sergai was also in the Ukrainian army and is wanted for horrible crimes in his past.
Another member of the Zhidobanderites is a wealthy Ukrainian, Ihor Kolomoyski.
We wrote about Kolomoyski in 2019 related to his connections with Burisma. He’s also a media giant in Ukraine.
The day after the riot at the Capitol the Ukrainians reported that Russia was behind the effort because they supported President Trump. They also proved that they were at the Capitol and were using techniques like Antifa in storming the Capitol. The ‘Russians’ were Ukrainians.
Below is a composite of the events from Apelbaum. There is more information on the Ukraine’s actions at the Capitol that we will present tomorrow.
Despite sometimes open acknowledgement of its Nazism — its former commander once said the “historic mission” of Ukraine is to “lead the White Races of the world in a final crusade for their survival” in “a crusade against the Semite-led Untermenschen” — Azov was incorporated into the country’s National Guard in 2014, owing to its effectiveness in fighting Russian separatists. US arms have flowed to the militia, NATO and US military officials have been pictured meeting with them, and members of the militia have talked about their work with US trainers and the lack of background screening to weed out white supremacists….
Ukraine’s Neo-Nazis share US military backing.
“A number of prominent individuals among far-right extremist groups in the United States and Europe have actively sought out relationships with representatives of the far-right in Ukraine, specifically the National Corps and its associated militia, the Azov Regiment,” states a 2020 report from the West Point US Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center. “US-based individuals have spoken or written about how the training available in Ukraine might assist them and others in their paramilitary-style activities at home.”
A 2018 FBI affidavit asserted that Azov “is believed to have participated in training and radicalizing United States–based white supremacy organizations,” including members of the white supremacist Rise Above Movement, prosecuted for planned assaults on counterprotesters at far-right events, including the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally that Joe Biden later co-opted as a rationale for his presidential campaign.
…to stop what US hawks classify as the next Hitler and Nazi Germany, Washington has been backing literal neo-Nazi militias in Ukraine, who are in turn communicating with and training homegrown white supremacists, which Washington in turn is ramping up a menacing repressive bureaucracy at home to counter. It’s what some have called the “self-licking ice cream cone” in action — the US national security establishment creating the very threats that justify itself.
