Exclusive Mikael Skillt Interview #AskMikaelSkillt

Swede Mikael Skillt, a senior member of Ukraine’s notorious Azov battalion, first came to my attention in July of last year, in a rare BBC article covering extremism on the Ukrainian side, extracts here –

Mikael Skillt 1 The appearance of far-right activists, both foreign and home-grown, among the Ukrainian volunteers fighting in east Ukraine is causing unease….

As to his political views, Mr Skillt prefers to call himself a nationalist, but in fact his views are typical of a neo-Nazi….

Mr Skillt believes races should not mix. He says the Jews are not white and should not mix with white people. His next project is to go fight for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad because he believes Mr Assad is standing up to “international Zionism”.

He came to my attention on Twitter last August, as I re-entered Donbass to continue reporting, after my 2nd deportation from Ukraine. Our first ‘conversation’ came in November, and consisted of a thinly-veiled wish for my death, from Mikael – and a robust reply from mine –

In my capacity as a ‘controversial’, correspondent, I receive a volume of death threats and general abuse from ‘pro-Ukrainians’ which would at least provide part-time employment for a PA, if chose to respond to them. This reached a peak after my shrapnel wound in November of 2014. However, Mikael did not add to this, and by December 10th, we had our first ‘polite‘ exchange.

Since then, we have had dozens of interactions on Twitter. Despite a mutual disagreement with each other, on the ‘issues’, our interactions have been characterised Mikael Skilltby a civility hardly associated with Twitter and dialogue between those holding such differing views. Leaving his political views, affiliations, and actions out of the equation, my experience of Mikael Skillt is an intelligent man, capable of politeness, charm even.

No question that Mikael Skillt is a man of extreme interest, and I’ve yet to see an interview with the 38-year old from Sundsvall, on the Swedish coast, which answers the questions I’d like to ask him.

More to the point, the questions you no doubt would like to ask him. And now you can. Mikael has agreed to an interactive Twitter interview this Sunday. All the questions, with answers, will be published here on the Truth Speaker. Here’s what you need to do, to get involved –

SkilltTime: Sunday 16:00 GMT – May 3rd, 2015

Duration: One hour

Twitter Format: Your Question Here? @MikaelSkillt @GrahamWP_UK #AskMikaelSkillt

Language: English

Rules: Mikael has said he won’t respond to one-liners calling him a ‘nazi’ or so. I would ask that you do ask questions, rather than abuse. We have one hour here with a man who clearly has a lot to say, let’s use it constructively!

Mikael has also said he won’t ask questions which impact on military intelligence. However, I say that you can ask absolutely anything which interests you – it’s Mikael’s choice if he chooses not to answer.

That’s all – see you Sunday, let’s make it a good one! Graham

  1. Surely the main questions about Ukraine that NEED to be answered are about:
    The coups that twice deposed elected presidents, not least the one last year.
    Which have been shown to be organised by US/K/ NATO supporters.
    Who organised and financed all that huge event in Maidan last year?
    Why no investigation of the Maidan shootings, in context of evidence of being organised by ANTI-Yanukovic people?
    Ditto the Odessa massacre.
    Why a so-called “anti-terrorist operation” when the violence was coming from Kiev and not to it, and popular support was AGAINST the Kiev junta, as evidenced by videos of demos and peaceful oppostion to the “ATO” in various cities?
    Why the secretisation about the MH17 crash, and the clear disproof of the claims of a BUK (eg no witnesses of a BUK trail but instead witnesses of attack by aircraft; clear debris proof that it cannot have been a BUK missile because something clearly exploded within a metre of the cockpit (proven by huge amount of small debris marks) and the only holes were of aircraft missiles rather than buk.
    Quite how it can be illegal invasion of Crimea in context that Kiev had already come under illlegitimate control of a puppet regime?

    Though not clear whether Mikael is the best or even suitable person to answer these questions.

  3. “Mr Skillt believes races should not mix. He says the Jews are not white and should not mix with white people. His next project is to go fight for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad because he believes Mr Assad is standing up to “international Zionism”.

    Oh gawd, can you please ask this guy to explain why he is fighting Russia in Ukraine “against Zionism” no doubt but then wants to help Russia’s ally “against Zionism” in Syria.

    This guys mind must be in excellent shape though with all the mental gymnastics he must do every day


  4. When I’ve read your twitter interactions with him I often wondered what he thought of children and babies getting killed by Ukrainian bombs? I’ve seen some horrific things and the one that haunts me the most was a woman named Kristina and her baby lying dead. Has he ever killed any women and children. Does he participate in the torture of civilians. I think he’s fighting on the wrong side whereas if he goes to support Syria and Assads forces he’s on the right side – where’s the logic in that.


  5. Many people are unaware of the fact that Ukrainian neo-Nazis were rudderless until visited by Blood & Honour UK in October 2001 in Kiev, whereupon a Blood & Honour Ukraine Division was formed. In turn this gave focus to groups that became known internationally as Right Sector and Svoboda.

  6. That guys views is so full of contradictions it’s just silly! If he is against Jews and Zionists then why is he fighting for the Ukrainian regime which is full of Jews, including the president Poroshenko, and his own battalion Azov was created and funded by the Jewish oligarch and Zionist Igor Kolomoisky. Add to that the fact that Zionists around the world (both Jews and non-Jews) are ferociously supporting Ukraine and doing everything to demonize Putin and Russia.

    Also, the wahabi jihadists that are fighting against Assad in Syria are also fighting with Ukraine against Novorossiya. And they are also supported by the Americans and the Zionists.

    So the guy is either a total moron or just an act with made-up opinions that he just uses as an excuse to get attention and to be in a war zone killing people.
