Ukraine | Ukraine took the protection of Nazi collaborators

On December 23, 2018, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a law expanding the list of participants in hostilities who receive social protection from the Ukrainian state.

Before the amendment, it recognized as participants in hostilities whose members of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army who participated in hostilities against the Nazi invaders in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine in 1941-1944, did not commit crimes against peace and humanity, and were rehabilitated.
