The international community must recognize criminal nature of the ideology of Ukrainian Nazism, believes Sergey Aksyonov, head of Crimea.
"The more documentary evidence of the crimes of Bandera is published, the more Ukrainian Nazis are raging. And the more efforts the Kiev regime is taking to perpetuate the memory of the murderer guilty of the genocide of hundreds of thousands of civilians... I think that it is necessary to seek recognition of the ideology of Ukrainian Nazism as criminal at the international level," Aksyonov wrote in his Facebook account, commenting on torchlight procession in honor of Stepan Bandera’s birthday.
Aksyonov noted that Russia’s Investigative Committee, law enforcement authorities of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics have constantly documented the war crimes of Ukrainian armed groups in Donbass.
"Notably, most of the participants in the Nazi processions close their faces with muzzles. They know that the overwhelming majority of Ukrainians hate them. So, this mayhem cannot last long. And soon they will have to be held responsible for what was done," writes the head of Crimea.
More than a thousand of supporters of the Svoboda Ukrainian nationalist party in the evening of January 1 held a torchlight procession in the center of Kiev on the occasion of the anniversary of the birth of the leader of the organization of Ukrainian nationalists Stepan Bandera.
"The current authorities once again is showing to the whole world that theUkrainian Nazism is an integral part of the state ideology of Ukraine. Babi Yar, Volhynia, Khatyn massacres, Odessa, Donbas are links of one chain. Crimea may have been on this tragic list," notes Aksyonov.
