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. The issue is long-term and this article will be updated when necessary and 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seeking in History a static common identity, need strong symbols and what makes them Nazis in these instances are their historical references.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 Golinkin 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.

Benito Mussolini will start governing Italy in October 1922, Adolf Hitler will become Kanzler in January 1933, Francisco Franco will win the Spanish civil war in April 1939, but in the Russian empire, sporadic anti-Semitic pogroms are already a tradition. At night, more than 2,000 Jewish civilians are slaughtered in Proskurov and vicinity. In order to save ammunition, lances and bayonets are used
The assassins are irregular Cossacks, fighters for the Ukrainian People’s Republic (UNR), have seized the city from the Bolsheviks. The UNR has been declared in June 1917, amid Russian revolution, will be defeated. The Bolsheviks will create the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1922. During that war in Ukraine, the nationalists will have slaughtered between 50,000 and 250,000 Jewish civilians.
In Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, literacy will be a major ambition. Dozens new universities will be founded, in order to train new teachers. But the program will not cover western Ukraine, Polish territory until 1939. The next generation of Ukrainian nationalists will be a nebula of Nazi collaborator organizations (cf. infra)

Then named Lemberg, Lwow was a city of the Austro-Hungarian empire until the end of WW1, returned after to the new republic of Poland. WW2 began on September 1, 1939, when Germany attacked Poland, that Soviet Union invaded from the east on September 17. The Polish garrison surrendered to the Red Army on September 22 and the region was attached to Soviet Ukraine.
On June 22, 1941, the Nazi armies started their invasion of Soviet Union. Among the invaders, on June 29, nationalist battalion Nachtigall entered the city, that the Ukrainians are naming Lviv. The offensive has resumed eastward and Vinnitsa is occupied on July 19. In an internal report from the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), written later, in 1944, the author will remind how the Ukrainian nationalists slaughter the Jewish civilians in the region of Vinnitsa
The first hundred [company] of the Legion will drive in the Tarnopil-Vinnytsia direction. After a week’s daily life in Lviv, the second and third depart in the same direction as the first. The designated daily route is 30 km. We make it easier for ourselves by sitting in groups on empty German cars and there we drive to Glynyk, and from there we drive through Ternopil, and from there through Zbruch to Saganiv village. Our first stop was in Michalpol. From there, through Proskuriv, they stopped for a longer stay in Yuzvin near Vinnytsia. During our permarch, we witnessed the victims of the Jewish-Bolshevik terror, this sight also cemented our hatred for the Jews, that in two villages we shot all the Jews in the ribbon. I remember one fragment. During our permarch, many wandering people were seen in front of one village. The answer to the question is that the Jews are threatening them and they are afraid to spend the night in their houses. As a result of this, we shot all the Jews there. In Yuzvin, we have already connected with a whole group of people. Here we learned that the first hundred had a battle with the Bolsheviks near Vinnytsia. As a result, 3 of our shooters were wounded, and some were sent to the memorial service. Only Lieutenant Kalina received the Cross of Merit. All others submitted for recognition were not recognized, perhaps only for political reasons. In Lviv, we were granted the right to wear blue and yellow [Ukrainian national colors] ties on epaulettes as a legion banner
In occupied Poland, the Abwehr (German military intelligence) has formed the Bataillon Ukrainische Gruppe Nachtigall in February 1941, in order to conduct special operations against Soviet Union. The recruits were volunteers from the OUN

Franz Walter Stahlecker (1900-1942) addresses a map to Reinhard Heydrich (1904-1942)
The latter is heading the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA), command of the German Nazi police and intelligence.

A massacre among thousands ones that the Nazis will have committed in Belarus during WW2 : as retaliation for an ambush that Soviet partisans have carried out the same day, 6 km away, the Nazi forces storm Khatyn, a peaceful village about 60 km northeast of Minsk. All inhabitants are driven in a shed which is then set ablaze. Machine gun fire kills those who attempt to escape. About 150 people, including 75 children, are slaughtered

After a vote in parliament on June 17, the president of Latvia, Guntis Ulmanis, signs a resolution which establishes March 16 as the official Latviešu karavīru atceres dienu [remembrance day of Latvian soldiers]. That is an euphemism and the legalization of an unofficial parade in Riga, since the dissolution of Soviet Union, in tribute to the Latvian Waffen-SS
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 Red Army on March 16, 1944. Their recruitment was partly from the Nazi auxiliary police, the Schutzmannschaft Bataillone, partly through conscription.
After the outrage worldwide, the government will abolish the official commemoration in 2000, in order to enable the integration in NATO and European Union in 2004. The event will remain a popular opportunity of patriotic demonstration for fascist organizations

A democratically elected government has been overthrown in a right-wing coup on February 21, 2014 (cf. infra, The home debates). In eastern Ukraine, Russian-speaking residents of Donbass have risen up against the Russophobia of the new authorities, who are calling them terrorists, have sent against them the army and Nazi paramilitaries.
In the US, the Congress approves the government spending bill, where a provision stipulates that
none of the funds made available by this act may be used to provide arms, training or other assistance to the Azov Battalion [cf. infra, June 15, 2019]
To the press, Representative Ro Khanna states
[…] I am very pleased that the recently passed omnibus prevents the U.S. from providing arms and training assistance to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion fighting in Ukraine […] The State Department should pressure Kiev to dissociate itself with this group and investigate whether any of our weapons or training have already been provided to them […]

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 Ukrainian Nazi formation

In Mariupol, Donbass, Azov regiment displays its emblem for the 5th anniversary of the liberation, its victorious crackdown on the pro-Russia uprising there
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 Ukrainian nationalists who started raising their racism as an ideology, after the dissolution of Soviet Union, the Social National Party (SNPU, cf. infra, The home debates, October 13, 1991) was created in western Ukraine and chose again the Wolfsangel as its emblem. Some Nazi rioters bore it on Maidan square (cf. infra, The home debates, February 21, 2014). The fascist militants became militias, have been later legalized as national battalions of volunteers, against the uprising in Donbass

At the United Nations general assembly, Russia puts forward a resolution against
glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fueling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance
Its relevance is great but its target is clear. 130 countries support the motion, two vote no, Ukraine and its main sponsor, the US. All members of the European Union, the historical birthplace of Nazism, abstain
The Ukrainian government has not implemented Minsk peace agreements. On Feburary 24, 2022, Russia will start a special military operation, for liberation of Donbass, demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine.

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 thousand Jewish and Polish civilians. The Soviet State security cornered and denazified him in Lviv, on March 5, 1950

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 (cf. supra, June 15, 2019), these funeral are for fallen service members of Azov regiment, a regular formation of the Ukrainian national guard, subordinate to the defense ministry.
The Wolfsangel is a symbol, but how Azov has performed since 2014 ? The national battalion of special police, a punitive formation, has cracked down on civilian unrest, 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 military vehicles and in consonance, propaganda channels on social networks, are displaying the same thick white cross
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
The Ukrainian soldiery has well understood the message and the version of the West backed fascist army evolves much quicker

The Ukrainian State officially celebrates the Ukraine Defenders Day, an euphemism for the 80th anniversary, precisely, of a Nazi and genocidal organization, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA, cf. infra, The home debates, June 30, 2022), which has been formed in 1942. No ambiguity on the site of the State Ukrainian Institute of National Memory
The same day, Volodymyr Zelenskyy awards the title of Hero of Ukraine to 99-year-old Myroslav Simchych, a documented war criminal. While he was captain within the UPA, on October 23, 1944, his men attacked a Polish village, where they slaughtered 81 civilians, men, women and children, 66 Poles, 14 Ukrainians and one Russian. After massacre and looting, the assailants burned 49 houses

Kiev city council renames a street. The previous name was Malinovsky, the new one is
Heroes of the Azov Regiment
Rodion Malinovsky (1898-1967) was born in Odessa, then Russian empire, now Ukraine, a Soviet marshal, commander in 1942 of the second Guards army, one architect of the victory against the Nazis at Stalingrad. Nazi militia in Kharkov in March 2014, national battalion of special police in May, attached to the Ukrainian national guard in November, Azov regiment (cf. supra, July 21) has been defeated in May 2022 in Mariupol.
Founder of the formation in 2014, Andriy Biletsky (1979-, center) speaks at the unveiling ceremony. Former member of the SNPU (social national party, cf. infra, The home debates, October 13, 1991) and Pravyi Sektor (right sector, cf. infra, The home debates, April 13, 2018), leader of the National Corps party, Biletsky is lieutenant colonel of police.
Representatives of the city council are present and also Maksym Zhorin, third commander of the regiment (2016-2017), officer within the SSO [special operations forces], who published on social networks on October 9, 2022, a video which is showing the assassination of collaborators, suspected pro-Russia civilians.

At the United Nations, the Third Committee (social, humanitarian and cultural) approves eight draft resolutions. One is against
the glorification of the Nazi movement, neo-Nazism and former members of the Waffen SS organization, including by erecting monuments and holding public demonstrations in glorification of the Nazi past
Azerbaijan, Belarus, Cambodia, the CAR, Cuba, the DPRK, Equatorial Guinea, Laos, Mali, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela and Vietnam have co-authored that draft resolution.
At the general assembly, another one has been approved on December 16, 2021 (cf. supra), against glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism, racism, racial discrimination or xenophobia. Ukraine and the US have voted no, the whole European Union, birthplace of fascism and Nazism, has abstained.
Today, Ukraine and the Baltic States vote no. We know why. Moreover, in the context of the Russian special military operation for liberation of Donbass, demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, a total of 52 countries vote no. Except the abstention of Turkey, the whole NATO votes no. Serbia abstains, Israel votes yes. Brazil, China, India, most South America, Africa and Arab world vote yes

While ambassador to Germany, his loudmouth became famous when on May 3, 2022, he called Kanzler Olaf Scholz a beleidigte Leberwurst (offended sausage). More interesting was his interview on June 30. German journalist Tilo Jung pushed him hard and Andriy Melnyk openly articulated his political sensivity, appeared as an apologist and ardent fan of Stepan Bandera, Ukrainian Nazi leader during WW2 (cf. infra, The home debates, June 30, 2022). He claimed that Bandera would not have been a mass murderer of Jews and Poles, nor a Nazi collaborator, that such accusations would be propaganda from Russia and Israel. But historical facts are cruel and Melnyk is a revisionist.
On June 9, Volodymyr Zelenskyy dismissed him (cf. infra, The home debates), like four other ambassadors. The issue was likely technical, not ideological, Ukraine willed more military support from these five countries. Melnyk is promoted today, appointed deputy foreign affairs minister.

This day is a festival, an orgy of evidences. The coffin is carried on a US made military Humvee. In Lviv, historical birthplace of the Ukrainian Nazism, a honor military guard escorts the funeral of Yurii Shukhevych (1933-2022), hero of Ukraine since August 19, 2006, after the pro-West orange revolution. He was a far-right politician and the proud son of Nazi war criminal Roman Shukhevych (1907-1950, cf. supra, June 30)
Azov paramilitaries are regarding the winter solstice as the day of the dead. In tribute to fallen members of the Nazi regiment, they burn a fake drakkar, which represents the trip of the dead to the valhalla. I stress it, they are not a bunch of boy scouts at the stage of puberty, Azov is a regular formation of the Ukrainian national guard

The press reports with complacency that in Lviv, western Ukraine, people celebrate the birthday of Stepan Bandera (1909-1959, cf. infra, The home debates, June 30, 2022), Nazi leader during WW2. The central government does not, but since the beginning of the Russian special military operation for liberation of Donbass, demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, is controlling the media, closely monitoring the ideological connotation of all publications
The photos come actually from the Telegram channel of Maksym Kozytskyi, the head of the local regional military administration (OVA), who writes
“If Bolshevism is replaced by another form of Russian imperialism tomorrow, it will also first of all turn with all its forces against the independence of Ukraine, its enslavement. The Russian people, as they still do, will bear that imperialism, will do everything to keep Ukraine enslaved” – Prophetic words of Stepan Bandera.
As a prominent Ukrainian bequeathed, we are fighting – the whole nation stands for freedom, the well-being of the Ukrainian nation. Today is the 114th anniversary of Stepan Bandera’s birthday. A person who demonstrated patriotism, determination, consistency in the fight for the homeland. We draw strength and wisdom from our great ancestors, and continue their work. We will win. Glory to Ukraine!
The official Twitter account of the Ukrainian parliament, Verkhovna Rada (supreme council), references also Bandera for his birthday, deletes later the ideological message. Israeli left-wing newspaper Haaretz will stress it the day after
The choice of the quote is so interesting, is reflecting the objective alliance between NATO and the Ukrainian Nazism, for the dismantling of Russia.

Voldoymyr Zelenskyy has stressed it, the awarded hero was a symbol. Dmitry Kotsyubaylo, callsign Da Vinci, was member of Nazi Pravyi Sektor [right sektor] organization, commander within the DUK (Dobrovolʹchyy ukrayinsʹkyy korpus, Ukrainian volunteer corps, its military branch, 67th mechanized brigade since November 2022) of the 1st battalion. One of his grandfathers was member of the UPA, the Ukrainian Nazi paramilitary organization during WW2, celebrated in Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s Ukraine as a pantheon of national heroes.

Ukraine is an associate member of the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States, former Soviet Union) Economic Union since April 1994. Its president, Viktor Yanukovych, has been democratically elected on February 25, 2010. A free trade agreement was negotiated with the European Union, but on February 25, 2013, Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, stated that its enforcement required that Ukraine quit its association with the CIS. On November 21, Yanukovych put the signature of the agreement on hold.
In Lviv, Western Ukraine, protestors started chanting
for the EU, death to the enemies, dirty Russian speakers on the gallows
Their sponsor was Oleh Tyahnybok, leader of Nazi Svoboda party (cf. supra, February 14, 2004). First a few and peaceful in Kiev, the protestors were 500,000 at Maidan square on December 1, the most from the west, around a Nazi and bellicose core. US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland visited Kiev on December 5, supported the protestors. The economy was deteriorating, Ukraine was asking for financial support. Europe refused, Russia agreed. On December 17, 2013, a new agreement was signed with Russia
At Maidan square, on February 18, 2014, shots targeted the riot police and the protestors, the situation has escalated to a bloodbath. On February 21, Yanukovych signs an agreement with the leaders of the parliamentary opposition and leaves the country. 103 protestors and 13 police officers have died. The Nazis hold one third of the interim government, notably defense. NATO has achieved a rightist coup in Ukraine.
Pro-Europe citizens and Nazis have rebelled late 2013 in the west and Kiev, against the legal government. Pro-Yanukovych and pro-Russia citizens will rise in March 2014 in Crimea and Donbass against Russophobia. The new government will call them terrorists, will send against them the loyal members of the armed forces and Nazi militias, which will start shelling civilian areas. That will be the beginning of the war in Donbass.

Juris Millers is producing Cukurs. Herberts Cukurs, a musical which is premiered in Liepāja, Latvia. The subject is Herberts Cukurs (1900-1965), whom some have proclaimed the most famous Latvian. In my opinion, he is even the most famous Baltic. Millers stresses
we are not Herbert Cukurs’ advocates and we are not his judges, I hope this performance will make you think
So cool, so progressive. Minister of foreign affairs, Edgars Rinkēvičs states that he cannot support a production which is not in good taste, but defends the producer’s right to free speech
Cukurs was in the 1930s a famous long-distance aviator
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
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 fighting 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 fighting 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.

February 24 is the anniversary in Estonia of the declaration in 1918 of independence (cf. supra, The material evidences, January 31, 1942), which was gained over Russia and the Red Army. In Stenbock House, the seat of the government, Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas welcomes the veterans, members of the Union of Estonian Freedom Fighters
You know firsthand that the freedom in which we live today—and a borderless Europe—cannot be taken for granted
Veterans of 1918 are pretty rare in 2016 and actually, the Union is gathering survivors of the 20. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS. Some are wearing its insignia on their tie
Taavi Rõivas is member of the democratic liberal Estonian Reform Party.

In Kiev, young Pravyi Sektor [right sector] militants attack WW2 veterans, who are intending to lay flowers at the memorial to Nikolai Vatutin (1901-1944), Soviet leader of the 1st Ukrainian Front, whose armies have defeated the Nazis in Ukraine
The militants pour red paint on the monument
The Soviet general has died on April 15, 1944, after an injury during an ambush on February 28, in the vicinity of Ostroh, Rivne region, Polish territory before 1939, northwest Ukraine nowadays. Since December, the Red Army had crushed there the German 1. Panzerarmee
The Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA, cf. infra, June 30, 2022) has carried out the ambush, was then conducting guerilla behind Soviet lines, had so far slaughtered Polish civilians, as an ethnic cleansing, when the Nazis were controlling the region.
Pravyi Sektor is a Ukrainian Nazi political organization, is still bearing the red and black flag of the former UPA

Bellingcat is a bunch of Western OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) nerds, whom British or US intelligence agencies may use as irregular auxiliaries. They publish on their blog a piece about the translations in Ukrainian and Russian of Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto, which was his claim of responsibility for his terrorist attack against Muslim worshipers in Christchurch, New Zealand, on March 15, 2019. Then 28 years old, Tarrant slaughtered 100 victims with an assault rifle, 51 died. The readers of both translations are mostly in Ukraine. The article would be more complete if it precised that the Nazi organizations are illegal in Russia, where the State security agency (FSB) is chasing their militants, while in Ukraine, many members of the armed forces are openly subscribing to that ideology
A Ukrainian reader has sent that photo to the publisher after reception of the manifesto, at left. The bookmark is a flyer of Karpatska Sich battalion (cf. infra, August 24, 2022), which was formed in 2014 as the armed branch of Nazi Svoboda party (cf. supra, February 14, 2004). Sich is an atom of the nationalist paramilitary forces within the Ukrainian ministry of interior.

Born in Lviv, western Ukraine, 42-year-old Volodymyr Viatrovych is historian, a revisionist and counterfeiter. Published in 2002, one of his first books is Army of the Immortals, where he disregarded sources and falsified stories, in order to glorify OUN and UPA (cf. infra, June 30, 2022). He reoffended in 2011 with The Second Polish-Ukrainian War 1942-1947, where he attempted to show that the mass killing of at least 50,000, may be 100,000 Polish civilians, would have been collateral damage of a war between Poles and UPA Nazis
After the rightist coup at Maidan (cf. supra, February 21, 2014), he has been a State representative, head between March 2014 and September 2019 of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory. No kidding.
Viatrovych enters today the parliament as member of European Solidarity, a Christian democratic and pro-European Union party

30-year-old Roman Zozulya is a Ukrainian international football player with Nazi sympathies. He is praising Stepan Bandera (cf. infra, June 30, 2022) on social networks, is supporting Ukrainian nationalist paramilitary formations since the outbreak of war in Donbass, is making jokes about Nazism, an individual behavior which is not exceptional in Ukraine
The issue becomes interesting when Zozulya plays for Rayo Vallecano, a Spanish club in Madrid, where supporters of his own team chant puto Nazi at him. Interesting because the Ukrainian authorities react to the denounciation of who he is. On Facebook, Voldoymyr Zelenskyy writes that Zozulya is not only a cool football player but a true patriot. Foreign ministry spokeswoman Kateryna Zelenko urges the Spanish authorities and the Spanish Football Federation to respond appropriately to the incident.

On social networks, he promotes Natiokratie [in German], the major work in 1935 of Mykola Stsiborskyi (1897-1941). Mykola Kravchenko (1983-2022) is a historical character of the modern Ukrainian nationalist nebula, member of former Nazi Patriot of Ukraine paramilitary organization (1999-2004), member of Nazi National Corps party (2016- ?), the ideologue of Nazi Azov organization (2014- ?, cf. supra, The material evidences, July 21, 2022)
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. The ideologue is advocating for the Concept of Multilevel Citizenship, is arguing that the right to vote should be limited to certain groups of people. The Russian special military operation will denazify him on March 14, 2022.

Today is the 78th anniversary of the Ukrainian 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS (cf. supra, the Material evidences, April 28, 2018), which is celebrated every year in Lviv and for the first time in Kiev, where 300 militants parade
Volodymyr Zelenskyy reacts
we categorically condemn any manifestation of propaganda of totalitarian regimes -in particular the National Socialist- and attempts to revise truth about World War II
He condemns, we is his wish. So, the Ukrainian SS are officially inappropriate. They were under German command. But since 2015, Ukraine celebrates the Defenders Day (cf. supra, The material evidences, October 14, 2022) on October 14, for the anniversary of the UPA (cf. infra, June 30, 2022), which was Nazi, has slaughtered between 50,000 and 100,000 Polish civilians at its own initiative, has conducted later a guerilla against the enemies of the SS, the Red Army. That was the reality of WW2.

I have waged war, have fought at 17 years old. I am Ukrainian, I am Nazi, have fought against Donetsk People’s Republic.
[journalist, about Donbass inhabitants] Are they Ukrainian or Russian ?
I cannot call these people Ukrainians. We do not need them. When the Ukrainian tanks will enter Donetsk, they will be exterminated.
[journalist] Then, maybe we should stop the war now ?
No, we must exterminate them.

The Ukrainian edition of US fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue publishes an article titled Who is Bandera : 3 books about the legendary Ukrainian
“Stepan Bandera – a hero or a traitor?” “What wrong did Bandera do?” “What made Bandera famous?” These are just a few of the Google queries dedicated to Stepan Bandera. In recent months, the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement has become, without a doubt, one of the most popular Ukrainians in the world, facts about whom are now being searched on the Internet by both Ukrainians and not only… Well, objective answers to the question of who Bandera really was, it is not easy to find what values he professed and what he really wanted for Ukraine – but you can try to look for it in books. We have collected the most interesting fact […]
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. He has never betrayed anything, the problem with Bandera is that he was a Nazi (cf. infra, June 30).

The Russian and republican [from Russian-speaking separatist Donetsk People’s Republic] forces are besieging Mariupol since March 11. The city has been freed but die-hard Ukrainian fighters, including the core of Nazi Azov regiment, are still entrenched in the basement of Azovstal steel mill, will surrender on May 20.
During a ceasefire, civilians are evacuated from the battlefield and among them, a deserter is spotted and taken prisoner
Many, even among millennials, still know what is the swastika, at right. ROA, at left, means Russkaya Osvoboditel’naya Armiya (Russian Liberation Army), also called Vlasov army (1944-1945). Nazi Germany recruited the members of this military formation among Soviet prisoners of war, Ukrainian, Belarusian or Russian. Soviet Union later tried general Andrey Vlasov, who was hanged on August 1, 1946.

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
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
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 had enjoyed the death of 4,000 Jewish civilians, whom the nationalists had slaughtered in Lviv and nearby cities a few days before, 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 managed to denazify him in Munich, on October 15, 1959
Since the 1930s, the OUN had always been an auxiliary organization of the German intelligence against Poland and Soviet Union. When they finally understood that the German Nazis would not grant them an independent fascist State, ally of Germany, the Ukrainian nationalists formed the UPA. Among lies and myths that many Ukrainians are broadcasting with the complacency of some Western media and politicians, especially in Canada, where the Ukrainian immigration is severe, one is that the Ukrainian nationalists would have fought against the German Nazis. FAKE. The Ukrainian nationalists, the OUN, the UPA, have NEVER fought against Nazi Germany. Actually, the German authorities did not give a damn about UPA, because Bandera’s thugs were carrying out ethnic cleansing, later fought against the enemies of the Nazis, the Red Army. Between late 1942 and 1945, they slaughtered Polish civilians, at least 50,000, maybe 100,000. There were anti-Nazi partisans in nowadays Ukraine, they were Poles or Soviet fighters.

The Ukrainian foreign ministry distances itself
The opinion of the Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk, which he expressed in an interview with a German journalist, is his personal opinion and does not reflect the positions of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry
- July 9, 2022
Melnyk is sacked. But the decree from Volodymyr Zelenskyy targets also the ambassadors to Hungary, India, Norway and Czech Republic. The sudden but obvious reason is that the Western military support is regarded as insufficient and his stance is not the best PR in the historical Heimat of Nazism. Melnyk has openly articulated his ideas, that mobs are sharing in Ukraine. His fall from grace is situational.

Today is the anniversary of the massacre in Kisielin, then Nazi occupied eastern Poland, 79 years ago, now Kysylyn, western Ukraine, a remembrance day in Poland. The Polish Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) writes on Twitter
On the National Day of Remembrance of Victims of Genocide perpetrated by Ukrainian nationalists, we’re honoring all people who perished in the Volhynian Massacre. President Karol Nawrocki is representing the IPN at the commemoration event in Warsaw
The ceremony takes place in Warsaw, while in Ukraine, location of the genocide, the nationalists are regarding the perpetrators, the Ukrainian Insurgents Army (UPA), as national heroes. No repentance in Ukraine, not even from the democratic government. The paradox is a serious breach within the Western civilization. The Asiatic hordes may exploit it.

A French independent media releases on Telegram the interview of Karel Cherel-Salzburg, French volunteer within the International Legion of Territorial Defense of Ukraine, that the Ukrainian government has created on February 27, three days after the beginning in Donbass and Ukraine of the Russian special military operation, in order to attract foreign fighters
Cherel-Salburg is a Nazi militant, whom French intelligence, police and justice already knew. He is regarding himself in Ukraine as a defender of Europe [against Russia], quotes Léon Degrelle (1906-1994), a Rexist (catholic far-right) leader in Belgium in the 1930s, later Standartenführer (SS colonel) and commander of the 28. SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division Wallonien (1941-1945)

If the Mongols invade Taiwan, we will retaliate by destroying the small Mongol village called “Moscow”. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania stands with Taiwan !
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
Well, Matas looks like a nerd, typical Western warmonger. Yet, I would have been glad to assess his military skill against a Mongol warrior, without NATO weapons, of course.

Denazification is an ambitious mission. The debate has reached the vicinity of Volgograd, southern Russia, where in the context of the special military operation in Donbass and Ukraine, the FSB manages to prevent two Nazis from blowing up a pipeline in support of Ukraine
The two criminals were Russian nationals, Nazi militants called Restrukts, fans of Maxim Martsinkevich (1984-2020), who died violently in the pretrial detention center in Chelyabinsk.
Also called Tesak, Martsinkevich was claiming Russian, Polish, Lithuanian and Belarusian origins, was deeply racist and violent. Amid what he was naming the Restrukt movement, he formed in 2005 the now banned group Format18, where 18 was standing for Adolf Hitler.

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
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, July 8, 1998). A country where monuments have been recently erected and commemoration are held, in tribute to Nazi fighters (cf. supra, September 14, 2012).
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 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 (cf. supra, February 14, 2004), 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 a modernized Totenkopf
The modernized Totenkopf (center) is pretty common within the Ukrainian armed forces. Its inspiration is the historical emblem of the 3. SS-Panzerdivision (left), with a modern military helmet on the skull. The last coquetry is on the helmet, which is displaying a key, the historical emblem of the 1. SS-Panzer-Division, Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler (right). The Ukrainian compagny R3ich is selling that patch
For that independence day, he publishes a video on Facebook. The battle fatigue is US, the bust behind is a tribute to Nazi leader Stepan Bandera (cf. supra, June 30). Valerii Zaluzhnyi is commander in chief of the armed forces of Ukraine

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.

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

The picture of an injured Ukrainian POW surfaces on social networks. On his left breast, he is displaying as a tattoo the crossed hand grenades, which were the emblem of the most barbaric formation within the whole Nazi Schutzstaffel (SS) during WW2
Its leader was Oskar Dirlewanger (1895-1945), the SS-Sturmbrigade Dirlewanger was formed in June 1940, became in February 1945 the 36. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS. Its mission was Bandenbekämpfung (bandits fighting), anti-partisan warfare, its members were convinced criminals, the brigade was the penal formation within the SS
Its history is a string of abominable war crimes in Poland, Belarus, Slovakia and Hungary. Even members of other SS formations were horrified. During the sole Warsaw uprising, in August 1944, Dirlewanger’s schwarzen Jäger (black hunters) slaughtered tens thousand civilians, all ages, both genders, killed wounded people in hospital with bayonets and rifle-butts, raped and murdered the nurses.
This tattoo is not a coincidence. It is reflecting the feeling of many Ukrainian service members toward Russian-speaking separatist bandits and civilians in Donbass for eight years.
In modern Ukraine, Kraken is the penal formation of Nazi Azov regiment, is fighting between Kharkov region and Donbass
Its badge is displaying a Kraken, the legendary Scandinavian sea monster, a giant octopus and on its head, a characteristic arrow, which was the emblem of the 32. SS-Freiwilligen Grenadier-Division, bottom-fed with disparate elements in January 1945, that the Red Army wiped out early May, south of Berlin

In Kiev, Dakhno Institute of Reproductive Medicine is since 1994 a private clinic for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility. The business there is human life, but under a few restrictions
Dear visitors, from October 1, 2022, the DAKHNO clinic accepts biomaterials only from purebred Ukrainians who do not have any relatives from Russia. Thank you for understanding
In Nazi Germany, between 1935 and 1945, the Lebensborn [fount of life] eingetragener Verein [registered association] was running maternity homes and programs in order to produce racially pure and healthy Aryan babies.
These restrictions comply with the article 16 of the Constitution of Ukraine (cf. supra, The material evidences, June 28, 1996).
After the broadcast of the photo on social networks, Dakhno clinic will deny its authenticity, but a video is also showing the poster.

Due to a logistical nightmare, the Russian forces have started retreating the day before from the right bank of Dnieper river. The Ukrainians are not confronting them, are waiting for the Russian withdrawal before occupying the ground. Here are screenshots from a Ukrainian amateur video, a column of regulars -yellow armbands- and a brand new flag -I have never seen it before.

Today is independence day in Latvia, the anniversary of its proclamation in 1918, after WW1, Russian revolution and German occupation. Every year, a torchlight procession gathers thousands people in Riga, under the aegis of the rightist National Alliance, that three ministers are currently representing in the government and 13 parliament members out of 100
The crowd bears the flags of Latvia and in the international context, Ukraine, sings Zem Mūsu Kājām (below our feet), which do not date back to 1918, is more recent, was the anthem of the 19. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS, a Latvian Nazi formation (cf. supra, The material evidences, September 14, 2012). The Latvian lyrics were original but the melody was older, German, Parademarsch der Legion Condor, the Nazi air forces which incenerated Guernica in 1937, during the Spanish civil war, then SS marschiert in Feindesland, a march of the Waffen-SS in Russia
SS marschiert in Feindesland
Und singt ein Teufelslied
Ein Schütze steht am Wolgastrand
Und leise summt er mit
Wir pfeifen auf Unten und Oben
Und uns kann die ganze Welt
Verfluchen oder auch loben,
Grad wie es jedem gefällt
Wo wir sind da geht’s immer vorwärts
Und der Teufel, der lacht nur dazu
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
Wir kämpfen für Deutschland
Wir kämpfen für Hitler
Der Rote kommt niemals zur Ruh’
Wir kämpften schon in mancher Schlacht
In Nord, Süd, Ost und West
Und stehen nun zum Kampf bereit
Gegen die rote Pest
SS wird nicht ruh’n wir vernichten
Bis niemand mehr stört Deutschlands Glück
Und wenn sich die Reihen auch lichten
Für uns gibt es nie ein zurück

As conclusion of a five-year-long legal debate, the Supreme Court states that the insignia of the Ukrainian 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS, Galizien (cf. supra, The material evidences, April 28, 2018), does not belong to the Nazis, is therefore not prohibited in Ukraine
The argument of the court is that the emblem of the SS division is depicting a golden lion with three crowns on a blue shield, a common heraldic symbol, popular in different countries, that such a lion was already on the coat of arms of the Galicia-Volhynia principality (yesterday, 14th century).
That decision is a victory for the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory (cf. supra, December 3, 2019), an openly revisionist State agency. Many Ukrainians, members of the armed forces or civilians during demonstrations, are bearing nowadays the emblem as a reference to the Ukrainian SS

From a Ukrainian propaganda channel on social networks, the official one of the former Mariupol city council, which does not need to hide them since most Western mainstream media are claiming that there is no Nazi problem in Ukraine. The day before, a car race has been held in Dnieper city, in support to the heroic defenders of Mariupol and Azovstal who are still in Russian captivity.
When Ukraine was occupying Mariupol, the city was headquartering Nazi Azov regiment and the former city council was ruling civil affairs. The republican forces from Donetsk People’s Republic and the Russian army besieged the city, where 8,000 Ukrainian fighters had been killed or taken prisoners, when the last one surrendered on May 20
These white boys [in English] are bearing Ukrainian flags, Azov ones with the traditional Nazi Wolfsangel and the banner of Dnieper football club, which is displaying a Celtic cross and the SS Totentkopf. Actually, Nazism is deeply imbuing the Ukrainian popular culture since Maidan (cf. supra, February 21, 2014).
A Lithuanian military association has sent gifts for the children of Ukrainian counterparts. Members of the 127th territorial defense brigade receive the packages in Kharkov. The background is interesting : the flag of the UPA (cf. supra, June 30), a Nazi paramilitary formation during WW2, the portraits of historical references, Stepan Bandera, Nazi war criminal Roman Shukhevych (cf. supra, the material evidences, June 30, 2022)

War goes on. In still Ukrainian-occupied part of Donbass, besieged Bakhmut is a meat grinder, that the Russian forces will soon liberate. The Ukrainian military losses seem huge, many families do not know the fate of their relatives, whom the authorities prefer to regard as missing. In the cities, recruiting sergeants are arresting men between 20 and 55, who have so far escaped the general mobilization. NATO countries have announced the delivery of a few dozen Western tanks, which should not turn the tide. Ukrainian nationalists are sharing this photo on social networks. This Ukrainian fighter bears the red and black flag of the UPA, Nazi militia during WW2, the current colors of Praviy Sektor political organization. The cloth is also displaying the SS Totenkopf and the Wolfsangel, emblem of the Social-National Party of Ukraine (SNPU, 1991-2004) and Azov regiment (2014- ?)

On February 2, 1920, Soviet Union has signed in Tartu a peace treaty which recognized the newly State of Estonia. The anniversary is an opportunity for the EKRE, which has a weakness for torchlight processions
The Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (EKRE) is a nationalist political party, which has won 19 seats, out of 101 in the parliament, at the elections in 2019, with 17.8% of votes. Its popularity is rising since its foundation in 2012.

Since the beginning of the Russian special military operation, some Westerners, in passive or active ways, are involved in the sustainability of the local Nazi culture. First, most mainstream media have enforced a gag order on the issue. For about one year, they are telling that there is no Nazi problem or even, no Nazi, in Ukraine. That is passive. Some are active. This 31-year-old character is usually appearing childish and hysterical. I guess that his behavior is in part the result of a cultural deficit. He brags on Twitter with a Ukrainian military chevron which is displaying the portrait of Stepan Bandera, the Ukrainian Nazi leader during WW2
But you cannot judge a book by its cover and actually, Paul Massaro has no guts, would be unfit on a battlefield. After the outrage on the social network, he deletes later his tweet. The real problem is that he is not a high-school boy, but a US official. Massaro is policy advisor for the Helsinki Commission, a stuff about human rights in Europe. If the Western decline had to display a face, little Massaro would be a relevant choice.

45 year-old Kaja Kallas is prime minister of Estonia, leader of the Reform Party, a supposed centrist and liberal one. She speaks at der Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz [Munich Security Conference], MSC2023
She reminds that a trial was held in Nuremberg, against Nazi criminals, after WW2, regrets that the Soviet criminals were not prosecuted. I remind that Nazism was successful in the Baltic States during WW2 and that Soviet Union was the main architect of the Nazi defeat. To put Nazism and communism on equal terms is trending, since the admission of the Baltic States in 2004, within the European Union, where Germany is once more the main power. That is indecent and even burlesque.
She adds that therefore, Russians should be tried for the current special military operation in Ukraine, that NATO countries should take control of Moscow and rewrite the mentality of Russian citizens so that they will never be a threat again. I think that a large psychotherapy clinic should be built across the three Baltic States, in order to care the neurosis of the Baltic nationalists.

The huge military losses, maybe 1,000 daily wounded, are requiring blood. The photo surfaces on social networks, would have been taken in the public clinical hospital, 5 Ivana Ohiienka street, in Lviv, the epicenter of the historical Ukrainian Nazism. DOC.UA is not its name but an online medical booking platform
The message is
On March 31, 2023, receiving blood from the donor will be carried out only if you are a pure-blooded Ukrainian.
Foreign citizens are prohibited from being donors.
Please understand these restrictions.
Once more (cf. supra, October 4, 2022) but this time in a fanciful way, due to the concerns of a superstitious public, these medical restrictions comply with the article 16 of the Constitution, which has been adopted on June 28, 1996 (cf. supra, The material evidences).
A few days before, a woman has brightened the Ukrainian social networks, has asked if intercourse were still relevant or if she needed to divorce, because her husband had been wounded and prisoner in Russia, where he had been transfused.

Once more Kaja Kallas, prime minister of Estonia, her provincial mind and neurosis, in the best case : she is whining about a Soviet bombing on March 9, 1944, which destroyed 25% of Tallinn
The comprehensive historical reality is that the Red Army was about to liberate the city from Nazi Germany, on its path to Berlin, where Adolf Hitler died on April 30, 1945. What may say the french inhabitants of Saint Nazaire, that Anglo-American bombing have destroyed at 100% ? A dozen French cities and towns have undergone more than 75% of destruction due to allied attacks. Without Soviet Union, which achieved 80% of the German military losses during WW2, the Baltic States and France would still be under German occupation.

As every year since independence in 1992, a few hundred people commemorate in Riga, capital of Latvia, the Latvian legionnaires who died in the Second World War (cf. supra, The material evidences, July 8, 1998)
These legionnaires were members of the lettischen SS-Freiwilligenlegion [Latvian SS volunteers legion], two SS divisions, 15. and 19. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS, which fought in Nazi ranks, against the Red Army, between 1942 and 1945, from Leningrad vicinity, Russia, to Schwerin, Germany, where the survivors surrendered to the US forces.
Since the rightist coup in February 2014, the Nazis are controlling the security and defense apparatus in Ukraine, State security agency (SBU), army, a nebula of paramilitary forces. They have disappeared from the democratic mechanisms, do not need them, are running the politic over Donbass, behind the legal government, which is playing on ambiguities, in order to survive
