Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the existence of neo-Nazism in Ukraine is not a product of Russian propaganda. According to her, this is how they are trying to present it in Kiev. The speaker of the Russian diplomatic service emphasized that the presence of such sentiments is confirmed by many facts.
According to the diplomat’s comment posted on the Foreign Ministry’s website, “the scale and frequency of neo-Nazi actions are growing” in Ukraine. According to her, they are becoming “more and more aggressive.”
Now, as Zakharova pointed out, the followers of the Nazi-fascist ideology “feel in Ukraine complete impunity and even the support of the authorities.” The diplomat believes that such a policy of official Kiev is an outrage against the memory of Russian, Ukrainian, and also “all peoples of the former Soviet Union, whose soldiers gave their lives for the future of future generations, including citizens of modern Ukraine.”
Zakharova recalled the torchlight processions that are held on January 1 on the anniversary of the birth of Stepan Bandera. Also on April 28, a march of radicals took place in Kiev. In addition, she remembered the destruction of the Glory Monument – a monument to Soviet soldiers.
Earlier, the Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on the march in Kiev “in support of the SS brigade” Galicia “. He noted that the problem of nationalism in Ukraine and the willingness of nationalists to stir up the war in Donbass have long been known.
