EDITOR’S NOTE (Nick Stamatakis): The Zelensky government tried its best to hide the widespread celebration of the birthday of Stepan Bandera, the Nazi collaborator responsible for the death of untold thousands during WWII.  But the news was not lost in Poland, where the prime minister heavily condemned these celebrations.

In Washington DC – silence… Who is going to care? Senator Lindsey Graham, who, along with late Senator McCain, had no problem AT ALL to cooperate with the “beheaders” of Al Qaida to cause regime change in Damascus, Syria,  and overthrow Bassar Al Assad?

To those who support these EVIL people, Graham and the rest warmongers in DC, I will remind you that Al Qaida almost extinguished the most Ancient Orthodox Church, the Antiochean Church of Syria… Those who escaped the Islamist beheaders were saved by the Russians…

Hundreds Of Ukrainians March To Honor Controversial Nationalist Leader

Hundreds of Ukrainians held a torchlight march in the capital, Kyiv, to mark the birthday of the controversial nationalist leader Stepan Bandera.

The January 1 march came amid a buildup of Russian forces near the border with Ukraine, which some believe could be a prelude to an invasion.

“Today, when there is a war with the occupier at the front, and the struggle against the ‘fifth column’ continues in the rear, we remember and honor the memory of Stepan Bandera,” Andriy Tarasenko, leader of the nationalist party Right Sector, said.

Bandera is revered as a hero by many Ukrainians for leading the political wing of the anti-Soviet independence movement, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). Its military wing — the Ukrainian Insurgent Army — waged partisan warfare during and after World War II.

But Bandera — who was killed by a Soviet assassin in Munich in 1959 — is regarded as a traitor by others for leading an insurgent war against Soviet forces and collaborating with Nazi Germany. His forces also fought against the Nazis at times during the war and are accused of carrying out murderous campaigns against Poles and Jews.

Similar marches also took place in several other cities, including Lviv, where about 500 people gathered at Bandera’s monument to honor him.

Poland responds regarding Ukraine's celebration of Nazi collaborator

Poland responds regarding Ukraine’s celebration of Nazi collaborator

(MENAFN) Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister of Poland, claimed during a news conference on Monday that there can be “no nuances” when it comes to the Ukrainian government’s glorification of World War II Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera. He declared that those who “do not want” to acknowledge the “terrible crimes” done by Ukrainian nationalists against Poles during World War II is not going to receive any mercy from Warsaw.

Morawiecki responded to a Verkhovnaya Rada tweet commemorating Bandera’s 114th birthday, saying, “We are extremely critical, very, very negative towards any glorification or even reminders of Bandera.” The Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), an ultranationalist group that existed during World War II and had its own paramilitary wing known as the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, was the subject of the tweet (UPA).

The Ukrainian parliament quoted Bandera as saying that “the complete and supreme victory of Ukrainian nationalism will be when the Russian Empire ceases to exist” in the post, which was later taken down amid protests from Poland, Israel, and the United Satets. The Rada then claimed that General Valery Zaluzhny, the commander of the contemporary Ukrainian Armed Forces, is “well aware” of Bandera’s “instructions.” Another tweet had a photo of the general with a sizable Bandera painting in the backdrop.
