Flash : Volodymyr Viatrovych, a Ukrainian scam

(Pavlo Bagmut/ Ukrinform, April 28, 2020)

Born in Lviv, western Ukraine, 45-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. 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

Since the 1930s, the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) was an auxiliary of the Abwehr (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 in 1942 the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), which did not confront the German forces, but carried out ethnic cleansing in occupied Poland and Ukraine, later fought against the enemies of the Nazis, the victorious Red Army. In 1945, the UPA will have slaughtered between 50,000 and 100,000 Polish civilians.

After the rightist coup at Maidan, Viatrovych has been a State representative, head between March 2014 and September 2019 of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory. Not even a joke. On December 3, 2019, he has entered the parliament as member of European Solidarity, a Christian democratic and pro-European Union party
