Thousands of Ukrainians, despite the risk of being beaten up by right-wing extremists participated in the demonstrations to celebrate the Victory Day on 9 may, the victory over Nazi Germany in the great Patriotic war.
In some places in the East of Ukraine the local authorities tried to protect the war veterans and others, who celebrated the Day of Victory, from right-wing extremists.
This is clearly caused discontent of the current Ukrainian rulers. The Minister of internal Affairs of the regime in Kiev Arsen Avakov wrote on may 10 on its website on Facebook that he fired the police Dnipropetrovsk region and the city of river due to the behavior of the police during the demonstrations.
Others went further in his attacks on war veterans and ordinary citizens, which, according to them, are traitors and fifth columnists.
The head of “Right sector” (banned in Russia — approx. ed.) and Rada Deputy Dmitry Yarosh has subjected to criticism of the authorities for what they are instead of brushing the police did not use more stringent measures to suppress the treacherous “Colorado”.
Loyal to the Kiev mayor of the Dnieper Boris Filatov advocates to create a corps of volunteers, like groups, which operated in Germany of the twenties to suppress events such as the celebration of Victory Day.
MP Andrey Denisenko offers to do with war veterans and other alleged traitors in the same way, as did Pro-Russian fifth column in Odessa on 2 may 2014 in Mariupol may 9, 2014, that is to kill a few dozen such people.
(Statements of Ukrainian politicians on their sites in Facebook taken from the Russian program of debates, the theme of which was the attitude of the people who make fun of the Victory Day and veterans of war.)
The Minister of internal Affairs dismissed the leadership of the police because the police tried to protect the war veterans and ordinary citizens from hooligan right-wing extremists.
War veterans and other citizens who wish to celebrate the defeat of Nazi Germany, was called to Parliament by insects, traitors and fifth columnists. There was even calls to kill them.
This happens in a country where journalists have been murdered and politicians criticized the regime, which banned the Communist party and have adopted laws providing for criminal penalties for criticizing the Nazis and right-wing nationalists of the thirties and forties, that is, people or groups who during the Second world war killed hundreds of thousands of Jews and poles.
What is this if not fascism?
Why are you silent NRK and other media “mainstream” that confirms the existence of the fascist regime in a European country with a population of 40 million people?
And why not protest our government and the organizations that advocate for human rights?
