Kiev city hall now has a banner of Stepan Bandera, a WW2 Nazi collaborator. The far right in the Ukraine... pic.twitter.com/AbufIIkhN1
The Nazis are not far right.
I wonder if they’re going to put up a banner of John Kerry and John McCain, too.
In 2005 Tyahnybok signed an open letter to then Ukrainain president Viktor Yushchenko urging him to ban all Jewish organisations, including the Anti-Defamation League, which he claimed carried out “criminal activities [of] organised Jewry”, ultimately aimed at the genocide of the Ukrainian people.
In a leaked phone conversation with the US ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, US secretary of state Victoria Nuland revealed her wish for Tyahnybok to remain “on the outside” but to consult opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk “four times a week”.
You know that Stepan Bandera fought the Nazis as well as the Soviets, right?
