Very interesting. How do your in-laws feel about the Bandera followers?
My wife’s grandfather was Red Army all the way from the Volga to Berlin. Her other grandfather was captured by the Germans in Sevastopol. While Ukraine had its Vlasov and Bandera and others who went to the German side even the Russians had those who went to the German side and today there are many skinheads in Russia who scream such things as “Russia for Russians”.
My wife believes in honoring those who fought against the Germans even though her family suffered under Stalin with some sent to the gulag at Solovki near the Arctic Circle. Many in the Red Army had mixed feelings such as Alexander Solzhenitsyn who served the Red Army faithfully in spite of his cynicism toward Russia’s supreme commander.
