Ukraine | Ukrainian Nazis Took Revenge on Odessa Residents Who Celebrated the Liberation of Ukraine From Hitler’s Fascists

The residents of Odessa on October 28th carried out a rally in honor of the 74th anniversary of the liberation of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic from fascist aggressors. And with nightfall Ukrainian Nazis came out into the city center in order to desecrate the place where people were massively burnt in the House of Trade Unions, which relatives still regularly come to for mourning events.

As the activist Moris Ibragim reported, from the morning the inhabitants of Odessa laid flowers at the Walk of Glory, having defiantly held a ceremony separately from the event of state officials.

“On this day our concept about this holiday is different to that of the Ukrainian authorities. We can’t stand near representatives of the authorities who consider that the Red Army were occupiers, we can’t be near those representatives of the authorities who say that they are not liberators, but occupiers. We can’t stand near those who say that it is Stalin who started the war, and not Hitler. If we stand near them, then it will mean that we practically share their point of view. Regardless of who is the mayor or governor of the city, they are still representative of the authorities. We can’t stand near those who in general exclude the phrase ‘Great Patriotic War’,” said Ibragim.

Several hours later, with nightfall, thugs from the Nazi C14 group took to the streets of Odessa. They came to Kulikovo Field to the House of Trade Unions, where in May, 2014 the militants that were transported there, on the orders of the authorities of Ukraine, burned alive dozens of Odessa residents who were opponents of Euromaidan.

Police have arrested more than 20 people since protesters took down the Confederate monument known as Silent Sam on August 20. The vast majority of those taken into custody have been anti-racist activists who have been part of counter-protests against groups including ACTBAC—identified as a “neo-Confederate hate” organization by the SPLC—and other similar organizations that have repeatedly rallied at the site. In one instance, police acted as protective chaperones to neo-Confederates demonstrating at Silent Sam’s empty pedestal, but pepper sprayed anti-racist counter-protesters.

Ukraine | Nazi glorification continues in West Ukraine

In West Ukraine on July 22 Nazi SS division Galychyna was commemorated by local authorities. Funny that it was commemorated on the anniversary of the battle of Brody when it was crushed by the Red Army. Commemoration took part in Lviv. But an interesting fact is that some US citizens and former Ukrainian SS came here to participate in the event. Former and contemporary Nazis celebrated their festive date burying the remains of the four dead SS fighters with an honor guard.

La « PRAVDA » a déjà noté que dans un contexte social marqué par le rejet massif de la réforme des retraites, les autorités ont tout intérêt à rester discrètes au sujet du 100e anniversaire du déclenchement de la guerre civile en Russie.
