As the March of the Living commenced Monday in Poland, in honor of Holocaust Memorial Day, another type of march commenced in Ukraine: a march of Neo-Nazis supporting the Waffen, the Ukrainian version of the SS.
Around 500 neo-Nazi supporters marched in Lvov to commemorate the creation of the 14th SS-Volunteer Division Galician on April 28, 1943, according to RT.
Many of the demonstrators bore the SS Galician divisional insigniaa yellow lion and three crowns on a blue backgroundand wore nationalist shirts with the Ukrainian colors. [ ]
Demonstrators cried SS Galician Division!, Glory to the nationdeath to enemies!, and Bandera and Shukhevich are heroes of Ukraine! according to UNIAN news agency. The march ended earlier than expected due to the chants after locals submitted a slew of complaints; the marchs organizers apologized.

People in the West have no conception of how savage WWII was on the Eastern Front.
I hate Ukraine Nazis.
Read the Gulag Archipelago and you can find out what the Russians did with their supporters and veterans after WWII. I haven’t seen this much Russian propaganda on Freerepublic since the Kosovo attack.
It's now settled, world-wide perception.
For better or worse.
They are soooo toast.
You SUPPORTED the Kosovo attack?
“Read the Gulag Archipelago and you can find out what the Russians did with their supporters and veterans after WWII.”
I’ll second that.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s not like anyone is losing posting privileges for posting Soviet propaganda.
FR has had its guard down for years, it was inevitably going to be overrun. The writing was on the wall back in 2004. Free Republic never bothered to defend itself from the trolls and forum spies. Now they have run of the joint.
Therefore, the entire pro-Ukrainian movement are neo-nazis. Or at least that is the pig in a poke the Putin rectal remoras have been pushing on FR.
One can both have been opposed to what happened in Kosovo and also oppose the slobbering Putin love-in we are seeing on FR as of late.
I agree. No contradiction there.
I understand, though I could have it wrong, that initially Ukrainians welcomed German troops in 1941. They thought that the Ukraine then could get rid of the hated Soviet. I then observed this analysis of what happened afterward. That the German invaders having been sniped at by unidentified opposition, then turned with savagery. This on the hitherto welcoming Ukrainian civilians. Again, before I get flamed, I am just repeating what was in the documentary. Ukrainians were then said to have turned against the enforcers of the German Army.
1,200 survivors of that division found their way to internment by the British at Rimini in Italy. A Soviet general with a hard face arrived and demanded of the British for the Galician men to be put in box cars. He wanted them back for reprisals including concentration camps and or execution.
Clement Atlee, the new British Prime Minister stepped in. The Galician Division where transported to the UK. Today about 200 survivors remain. They are spread over different nations. Brigadier Fitzroy McClain had some scathing words for those who wanted these old men tried on war crime charges.
I myself thank the good Lord, I never was in the position of many other people in WW2. War is hell. (American Civil War General)
The Governor of the Ukraine stipulated to the German authorities a telling requirement. That no American or British forces were to be engaged by the Galician Division. Only against the Soviet army.
Persons here are lucky not to be my age. I am not talking down to Freepers here. The fear and hatred of Russia, when the heady celebrations died down, are almost unbelievable.
