Cults: The CIA's Secret Weapon

CIA-sponsored cults back neo-Nazism in Ukraine

In January 2023, a symbol of the Ukrainian nationalist cult 'RUNVira' appeared near a major Orthodox shrine, the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. Lev Silenko, a Ukrainian emigrant from the United States, is known as the founder of this religion. However, very few know that before becoming the ultimate prophet of Ukrainian neo-paganism, Silenko had attended Hitler's propaganda courses in a Polish camp. Today, 'RUNVira' still promotes the ideas of Ukrainian exceptionalism and harbours hatred towards Russians and Jews. How did Ukraine become a centre for neo-Nazi cults, and who is responsible for this?
