Nazism in eastern Europe

Any dilettante in History and politics is aware of Nazi kernels in eastern Europe. Like any predatory ideology, such inspiration may become a global threat if not addressed on time, has shown once more the actuality

On October 13, 2017, a statue to Nazi Stepan Bandera is unveiled in Lviv, western Ukraine (Yuri Gvozdovich)

The issue is long-term and this article will be updated when necessary or possible. The focus will be on the countries at the front line of Western civilization against the Asiatic hordes : Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

As a dummy, I assume that these States are somehow neurotic, after what the common local opinion is regarding as a bullied independence through History. Nationalism is heightened. Nationalists are seeking in History a static common identity, need strong symbols and what makes them Nazis in these instances are their historical references. Their heroes were Nazis during WW2, have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The issue has not been seriously addressed, because the West is complacent, needs this heightened nationalism for its own strategic purpose against Russia. This Nazism is the product of Nazi roots, neurotic nationalism and Western agenda. How funny are the Western media for a dozen years. The issue was a regular subject, especially when one of these States paid tribute to a Nazi hero, but a gag order is enforced since February 24, 2022, beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, where according to the new common assumption, there is no Nazi.

The material evidences

Our post-truth era and fickle media make the investigation more difficult. But I have found a serious source. US journalist Lev Golivkin is documenting the recent erections of monuments to Nazi collaborators and Holocaust perpetrators, notably in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine.

There are hundreds of statues and monuments in the United States and around the world to people who abetted or took part in the murder of Jews and other minorities during the Holocaust. As part of an ongoing investigation, the Forward has, for the first time, documented them in this collection of articles. For an initial guide to each country’s memorials click here.

A placard has appeared in Kiev, that the German Nazi forces have seized on September 19, after 45 days of Soviet resistance

All Yids of the city of Kiev and its vicinity must appear on Monday, September 29, by 8 o’clock in the morning at the corner of Mel’nikova and Dokterivskaya streets. Bring documents, money, valuables and also warm clothing, linen etc. Any Yids who do not follow this order and are found elsewhere will be shot. Any civilians who enter the dwellings left by Yids and appropriate the things in them will be shot

The Baltic countries were part of the Russian empire until the Bolshevik revolution, when they fought against the Red Army and gained their independence between 1918 and 1920. Later, they signed mutual assistance treaties with the Soviet Union and in June 1940, the Red Army has occupied the Baltic countries.

After building with private donations on a land that the municipal council has given, a memorial is unveiled in Bauska, Latvia,

to the defenders of Bauska against the second Soviet occupation on July 28 – September 14, 1944

(Maigurs Strīķis)

While the German defenses were crumbling in 1944, several hundred local volunteers have defended the town until death against the Red Army. These men had not carried out any resistance against the Nazi authorities.

Per capita, after Germany, Latvia may have delivered the largest contribution to the Nazi war effort, with the lettischen SS-Freiwilligenlegion (Latvian SS volunteers legion). Two SS divisions, 15. and 19. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS, were formed and for the first time, have confronted together the Soviet army on March 16, 1944. Their recruitment was partly from the Nazi auxiliary police, the Schutzmannschaft Bataillone, partly through conscription.

Today is the 75th anniversary of the 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS, the Ukrainian State has released a set of stamps in tribute to prominent members of the unit

Within the international Nazi Schutzstaffel (SS), the Ukrainian division was formed on April 28, 1943, with volunteers from Galicia region, in German occupied eastern Poland, western Ukraine nowadays. Germany pledged that the new formation would not confront Western allies, would fight Bolsheviks. In February 1944, the division operated against Soviet and Polish anti-Nazi partisans. In July, the Ukrainian SS started to confront the Red Army. After fighting in Slovakia and Austria, the survivors surrendered to the British and US forces in May 1945.

His anniversary is close and the Ukrainian State pays tribute to him with a new stamp

Roman Shukhevych (1907-1950) was a member of the OUN-B (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, its faction that Stepan Bandera was heading), a Nazi agent and collaborator, commander of the Bataillon Ukrainische Gruppe Nachtigall, a Ukrainian intelligence and terrorism formation that the Abwehr, German military intelligence, had formed, a captain within the Schutzmannschaft Battalion 201, an auxiliary police formation subordinated to the German Sicherheitspolizei. In August 1943, he became commander of the Ukrainian Insurgents Army (UPA). He was co-responsible of the slaughter of tens thousands Jewish and Polish civilians.

In Kiev, some Ukrainians pay tribute to fighters who have been killed in Mariupol, Donetsk People’s Republic, Donbass, between March 11 and May 20, from the encirclement of the city to the surrender of the last defenders in Azovstal steel mill. Their corpses have been later exchanged

Have you noticed the symbol on the coffin ? The Wolsfangel (wolf hook) was a 15th-century heraldic charge in Germany, not Poland nor Ukraine, that everybody would have forgotten, except specialists. But the Nazis have included it in their runic symbols system between the 1930s and 1945. Among the nationalists, mostly from western Ukraine, former Poland, who later started to worship local historical Nazi Stepan Bandera as a national hero, some have chosen again the Wolfsangel as their emblem. They are members since 2014 of supremacist paramilitary organization Azov, who has been defeated in May, at the end of the siege of Mariupol

From left to right : 2. SS-Panzerdivision Das Reich (1939-1945), 4. SS-Polizei-Panzergrenadier-Division (1939-1945), 34. SS-Freiwilligen Grenadier-Division Landstorm Nederland (1943-1945) and Azov (2014- ?)

The Wolfsangel is no more than a symbol. But how Azov has performed since 2014 on the battlefield in Donbass ? The national battalion of special police, a punitive formation, has slaughtered civilians in Odessa, Mariupol, deliberately shelled residential areas where no troops were stationed, no military value facility were set. During the siege of Mariupol, Azov has used civilians as human shields, detained civilian hostages in Azovstal steel mill. These war crimes have been the political expression of supremacists who are regarding the Russian-speaking separatists in Donbass as Untermenschen.

In the decree 559/2022, the president establishes an award for the defense of Ukraine, which will be granted to service members, civil servants, members of voluntary formations of territorial communities and every person who has

carried out volunteer activities or otherwise actively contributed to the performance of tasks related to ensuring the implementation of measures to ensure the defense of Ukraine, the protection of the safety of the population and the interests of the State in connection with the large-scale armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine

Look at the shape that the four swords hilts are drawing. With no doubt whatsoever, that is a swastika.

Jewish president Volodymyr Zelenskyy is not necessarily a Nazi, rather a former professional actor and an opportunist, maybe a crook. He has been elected on May 20, 2019, on the promise of peace in Donbass, but quickly, the leaders of the Nazi organizations have taught him what should be his policy if he loved life, according to former and famous US intelligence officer Scott Ritter. De facto, he did not disarm the Nazi militias like Azov regiment, did not implement Minsk agreements and the Ukrainian forces are carrying on with the deliberate shelling of residential areas in separatist Russian-speaking Donbass. He is indeed enjoying life and according to the rumor, has earned several hundred million dollars in three years. The symbolism of the medal for the defense of Ukraine is a new clue that a strong fascist deep State is ruling the country, in accordance with its Western curators. In post Maidan Ukraine, Russian-speaking people have replaced Jews or Poles as Untermenschen.

In the context of the Russian special military operation for liberation of Donbass, demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, the Ukrainian forces start on September 7, 2022, an offensive between Kharkov and Izyum.

The Balkenkreuz (bar cross) was the common sign on German Panzer on September 1, 1939, when began the invasion of Poland and WW2. The symbol later evolved and remained until 1945

(Juris Presņikovs)

Cukurs was in the 1930s a famous long-distance aviator

1937 (Gamma-Keystone)

During the Nazi invasion of Soviet Union, the Sicherheitsdienst (SD, SS intelligence agency) formed in July 1941 in Riga a Latvian auxiliary police, Lettische Hilfspolizei, with local far-right volunteers. Cukurs was its deputy commander. Until 1945, the at most 1,500-strong Sonderkommando Arajs slaughtered about 26,000 Jews in Latvia and Belarus.

In 1945, Cukurs fled to Germany with the defeated Nazi forces, then to Brazil, through the Ratlines, the escape routes that the Catholic clergy and the US intelligence were managing. The Mossad, Israeli foreign intelligence, managed to denazify him in Uruguay in February 1965.

February 11 is the anniversary in Lithuania of the declaration in 1918 of independence (cf. The material evidences, January 31, 1942), which was gained over Russia and the Red Army. Several hundred young people demonstrate through the streets of Kaunas, the second city of the country. No skinheads, only a few swastikas (in 1918 ?), they look like children of the middle class, products of the national education since the independence from Soviet Union

(Defending History)

The theme is we know our nation’s heroes. Which ones ? Fighters against the Red Army in 1918 ? Just a little bit, many were too young. Did they fight against Nazi Germany ? Never

  • Adolfas Ramanauskas (1918-1957) has written himself during the days of liberation from the Bolshevik occupation [the Nazi invasion late June 1941 and thereafter], I commanded a partisan unit in the area surrounding Druskininkai and in that town. Did these partisans fight against the German Nazi forces ? No, they slaughtered communist militants and Jews. There was resistance in Lithuania during the Nazi occupation, but they were Russians and Poles. After WW2, Adolfas Ramanauskas has fought against the Soviet administration, the KGB denazified him in 1957.
  • Jonas Noreika (1910-1947) was an antisemitic militant during the 1930s, thurifer of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. After the Soviet occupation in 1940, he joined the Lithuanian Activist Front (LAF) for the liberation of the country. After the Nazi invasion, he led personally the massacre of 1,800 Jews in Plungė, on July 13-15, 1941. In August, the German authorities appointed him governor of Šiauliai district. Local fascists were reluctant to fight against the Red Army outside Lithuania, he failed to fulfill orders to raise a SS division and was arrested in March 1943. Back in Soviet Lithuania after WW2, Jonas Noreika was denazified in February 1947.
  • Povilas Plechavičius (1890-1973) was already a veteran within the imperial Russian army, when he started in 1918 to fight against the Red Army in Lithuania, became lieutenant general in 1929. At the request of the German authorities, he called in February 1943 for the enlistment of volunteers into the Litauische Sonderverbände (Lithuanian special league, LVR), a territorial defense force against the Red Army. These paramilitaries were confronting Soviet and Polish partisans, but were locally defeated in May 1944. Due to these failures and his reluctance to obey German orders, Povilas Plechavičius was temporarily arrested on May 15. Free, he reached the Anglo-American lines in July, emigrated later to the US.
  • Kazys Škirpa (1895-1979) was serviceman within the imperial Russian army, when he started in 1918 to fight against the Red Army in Lithuania. When the Soviet Union occupied Lithuania in 1940, he was ambassador to Nazi Germany, where he formed the Lithuanian Activist Front (LAF) for the liberation of the country. After the Nazi invasion, the German authorities were not enjoying his demands of independence and did not allow him to leave for Lithuania. Kazys Škirpa emigrated to the US in 1949.
  • Antanas Baltūsis-Žvejys (1915-1948) graduated from a military academy in 1940, when Lithuania was already part of the Soviet Union. After the Nazi invasion, in 1943, he was commanding the Schutzmannschaft Bataillon 252 (auxiliary police), which was guarding Majdanek Konzentrationslager (KZ), in Poland. He decided to resist after the Soviet victory and back to Lithuania, became leader in Tauras district, where he used to order the slaughters of whole communist or Russian families. Antanas Baltūsis-Žvejys was denazified in 1948.
  • Juozas Ambrazevičius (1903-1974) was a literary historian and nationalist politician. During the Nazi invasion in June 1941, he became acting head of the provisional government, a German sponsored structure, which dissolved itself in August, when the LAF understood that Germany would not grant Lithuania independence. Juozas Ambrazevičius emigrated to the US in 1948.

Nowadays, the Lithuanian authorities are honoring to some extent most of these pathetic characters.

Mykola Stsiborskyi (1897-1941) was a fascist, a thurifer of Benito Mussolini. Born in Zhytomyr, then Russian empire, Russian army captain during WW1, fighter later against the Red Army, he became in exile a prominent member of the OUN (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, cf. infra, June 30, 2022). Yet a moderate, he was advocating for Natiocracy, an authoritarian one-party government which would enforce duty, hierarchy, discipline. His wife was Jewish and Stsiborskyi was not antisemitic. While the German Nazis were occupying his birthplace, he was gunned down there on August 30, 1941. The shooter was a member of OUN-B, the faction that was leading Stepan Bandera (cf. infra, June 30, 2022), a Ukrainian nationalist from the west, born in the Austro-Hungarian empire, in a region which was Polish before WW2.

In July 2019, the National Corps gathered 2.15% of popular vote, but Kravchenko is member of the deep State, the fascist paramilitary organizations which are deciding since 2014 on the main issue in Ukraine, Donbass, while Volodymyr Zelenskyy is making money.

Beware, the first question, hero or traitor, is a trap. Traitor against what ? Stepan Bandera (1909-1959), national hero of Zelenskyy’s Ukraine, was indeed a Ukrainian nationalist, was born in Galicia, as a subject of the Austro-Hungarian empire, which was dismembered at the end of WW1. When he started his terrorist activity in the 1930s, Bandera was a citizen of Poland and one of his first victims was the Polish interior minister.

Jung & Naiv – Politik für Desinteressierte is a famous German interview program broadcasted on YouTube and Facebook. The guest is today Andriy Melnyk, ambassador from Ukraine since January 12, 2015. A three-hour-long interview

(Screenshot)

Journalist Tilo Jung reads a historical flier from the OUN

Muscovites, Poles, Hungarians and Jews are your enemies, destroy them !

About his national hero, the ambassador answers

Bandera was not a mass murderer of Jews and Poles […] was not a Nazi collaborator either […] The Poles also massacred the Ukrainians

that such accusations would be propaganda from Russia and Israel

in July 1941, the OUN-B welcomed the German army in Zhovkva, western Ukraine : Heil Hitler ! Glory to Hitler ! Glory to Bandera ! Long live the Ukrainian independent State ! Long live leader Stepan Bandera

Stepan Bandera (1909-1959) was a nationalist leader, born in Galicia, Austro-Hungarian empire, then Poland, when in 1934, he engineered the assassination of the Polish interior minister. The German invasion freed him and in 1940, he was managing the radical faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), a partnership with Abwehr (German military intelligence) and Gestapo. At the beginning of the Nazi offensive against Soviet Union, in June 1941, he pled with Adolf Hitler for an independent fascist Ukraine, ally of Nazi Germany, that he declared unilaterally in the occupied territories one week later. The German authorities enjoyed the slaughters of 4,000 Jews in Lviv and nearby cities, but disagreed on the independent stuff, arrested him temporarily in July. After the war, Bandera sought shelter in West Germany, where the US intelligence and Nazi underground groups were protecting him. The KGB denazified him in Munich, on October 15, 1959.

Since the 30s, the OUN was an auxiliary organization of the German military intelligence and Gestapo, against Poland and Soviet Union. The Ukrainian nationalists were slaughtering Jews, often at their own initiative. When they finally understood that the German Nazis would not grant them an independent fascist State, allied of Germany, they formed the UPA. Did they fight against the German Nazi forces ? No, the German authorities did not give a damn about UPA in then occupied eastern Poland, now western Ukraine, because Bandera’s thugs were carrying out ethnic cleansing. Between late 1942 and 1945, they were slaughtering Polish civilians.

If the Mongols invade Taiwan, we will retaliate by destroying the small Mongol village called “Moscow”. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania stands with Taiwan !
#StandWithTaiwan #SmolenskIsLithuania

Weird. I do not understand here the analogy between China and Russia, nor the reference to Mongolia. I guess that the issue is not political but ethnic. The word Mongol seems pejorative. That racist tweet is a usual expression from the outposts of the Western civilization, against the Asiatic hordes, a historical theme of the German propaganda, when the Soviet army was about to seize Berlin in April 1945.

42-year-old Matas Maldeikis is no more a youngster but a politician, member of Tėvynės sąjunga (Homeland Union, currently 35% of the seats in the parliament, part of the government), a Christian-democratic party in Lithuania, live evidence that the saint crusade, that the Teutonic knights have carried out against the pagan Lithuanians in the 13th century, was not in vain. A German warrior may be among Matas’ ancestors. Or a Mongol ? Or both ? Love is so unpredictable. The Christian-democrats are usually conservatives, Ursula von der Leyen, the current German president of the European Commission, for example, is one.

His stance is not strictly defensive, Matas is also claiming that Smolensk, a Russian city, is part of Lithuania

The Latvian government and municipal council have ordered the destruction in Riga of the Monument to the Liberators of Soviet Latvia and Riga from the German Fascist Invaders. The memorial is teared down today

(Social networks)

The operation looks like a gesture of derussification, in the context of the Russian special military operation in Donbass and Ukraine, while no denazification is conducted in a country which has volunteered a huge military effort to Nazi Germany and its Waffen-SS (cf. supra, The material evidences, September 14, 2012). A country where monuments have been recently erected and commemoration are held, in tribute to Nazi fighters (cf. supra, March 16, 2022).

Before the special military operation, the Baltic countries have already attempted to squarely express tributes to their Nazi historical references. But the worldwide opinion has often rebuked them. The war in Ukraine is a long awaited opportunity, not to build new Nazi memorials, but to destroy the monuments in tribute to the fighters who have defeated the Nazis, Red Army fighters. The Latvian events are a splendid illustration. That is a civil war about memory

Volodymyr Zelenskyy (cf. supra, The material evidences, August 5, 2022) is celebrating the 31rd independence day of Ukraine [dissolution of Soviet Union in 1991], pays tribute, through a set of portraits, to young armed forces characters. Among them, 27-year-old, Mykhailo Malyuk (left), sergeant within volunteer special police Sich battalion, a famous punitive formation of the interior ministry, is proudly displaying the badge (right) of the Ukrainian 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS (cf. supra, The material evidences, April 28, 2018)

Formed in 2014 as the armed branch of Nazi Svoboda party, Sich is an atom of the nationalist paramilitary forces within the Ukrainian ministry of interior, attached in a likely punitive function to the 93rd mechanized brigade of the regular army.

The proud reference to the Ukrainian SS division is common among individuals of the armed forces. This screenshot is from a video that the British tabloid Sun has released in April 2022, from Borodyanka, northwest of Kiev. These men are members of the State security agency (SBU)

Another example in Mariupol, Donetsk People’s Republic, in May, when Nazi Azov regiment, a formation of the Ukrainian national guard, was surrendering. One of these two engineers was bearing the historical patch of the Ukrainian SS. The other one was displaying the Totenkopf, emblem of the German 3. SS-Panzerdivision

Unintended information from public propaganda TV channel France 2, which releases a complacent report from Ukraine. And reporter Maryse Burgot shares the video on Twitter. The subject is on the bounds of good taste, but never falls in, a pure piece of crude propaganda. A kid is equipped with fake bulletproof vest and Kalashnikov assault rifle, is saluting from the roadside the vehicles of the Ukrainian army.

But reality is in the details. On the other side of the road, two young girls give the Nazi salute

The voice-over do not even comment the nefarious detail. Imagination makes me laugh. I am wondering what was the action of Burgot’s elders, when a Kommandantur was set in their town, when the Propagandastaffel was ruling the information in France.

New step against the memory of victory over Nazism, Latvia bans Katyusha from the public space. The Latvian government is regarding her as symbol of a totalitarian regime. The violation of the ban is fined from 350 to €2,900

Katyusha is a young woman and the Russian folk song is about love. The composer was Matvey Blanter in 1938, poet Mikhail Isakovsky has written the lyrics. During WW2, the German invasion of Soviet Union in 1941, she has inspired the population to fight against the European Nazis, until the conquest of Berlin and victory in May 1945.

Still Riga, Latvia, the undisputed champion of Western civilization against the Asiatic hordes, where the values of the European Union are publicly defended. The Russian-speaking passengers are demanded to seat at the back of the bus. The Baltic countries and Ukraine are appearing more clearly as furuncles of Europe, its evil History

The job is daily, but such a splendid specimen is newsworthy. Through a new obituary notice shared on social networks, Ukrainian officials and propaganda channels are mourning 27-year-old Yevhen Brach, whom the Russian forces have demilitarized in Donbass on September 21

The hero was born in Poltava, joined in 2015 the Foreign Legion, where according to his biographers, he served France 5 years. On his Telegram channel, he seemed proud of that experience

One of his last spiritual activity was to pay tribute to dead Ukrainian SS, the casualties in Brody on July 14-22, 1944, when Soviet offensive Bagration wiped out the 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS (cf. supra, The material evidences, April 28, 2018)

His call sign was Mali and his testimony is substantiating vivacity of the Nazi legacy within the special forces of the Ukrainian regular army

Provisional conclusion

the necessary denazification of Ukraine

For years, the 71-year-old man has become a boring scholar, was probably no more the operational leader of al Qaeda franchises worldwide. I guess the taliban or Pakistan have handed him over. His assassination is a PR operation for Joe Biden, decrepit leader of a decadent West and president of a mass shooting-torn country. We are waiting for the new head of al Qaeda, while the West is now arming Nazis in Ukraine […]
