I watched a lot of this... scary

I've never seen any Russian media or Russian sponsored media insinuating all ukranians are Nazis.
I have seen a ton of American media stating like its a fact that no Nazis participated in the ukranian coup and that no Nazis exist in Ukraine at all.
there was a lot of stuff about ukranian nazis popping up on /pol/ and various news message boards following the annexation. you must have missed it.
Oh yes, how could I have missed those official news sources!
Chicken the Did
The torching of the Trade Hall was pretty fucking brutal.
I watched some of that happen live on a livestream because until then I was happy the Euromaidan was happening. I mean it was and still is objectively a good thing. However I was an idiot and forgot ugly stuff always happens in these things. Ugly as in suddenly the tide turns in a conflict and the underdog suddenly has enemy civilians to vent their frustrations out on. So I tuned into this stream where the Trade Hall standoff was taking place.
And that's about when the ugly started. Because boy howdy I witnessed a war crime that day.
The police force was of course nascent since this was post uprising. They didn't seem to know how to handle the situation. Suddenly all these vehicles started pulling up and yeah... Nazis. Dozens of them. I came to learn later this was Right Sektor. They marched on by the police, who did nothing and shit got real. They laid torch to the hall and then stalked the hallways and outskirts beating the brains out of any survivors.
The livestream seemed to be of a Ukrainian affiliate so there was a little window of an anchorman's face off to the side. At first he seemed confused and then turned solid white realizing what was going on. He... Cut the feed in a panic. Bits and pieces still made it on to social media.
To the credit of the interim Ukrainian government Right Sektor was deduced to be -extremely- bad press and their leadership was more or less neutralized. And as far as the Russians they aren't clean in the slightest (Obviously). They put those people up to making a stand in that trade hall so they could be directly in the line of sight of people that really, really wanted them dead. From there they'd get dead and the Russian side would have all the propaganda it needed. Under the guise of patriotism they were Red Shirts.
