On February 23rd, in Nikolaev, there was an incident during flower-laying to the monument of the hero Olshanky, reported the local times.mk.ua website.

Flowers were laid at the monument to heroes of the Great Patriotic War by activists of the movement “Ukrainian Choice”, together with Afghan soldiers.

Unfortunately, it didn’t occur without provocations. A man ran up to the memorial and started stamping his feet on the placed carnations.




Afterwards a fight ensued, after which the moronic provoker was taken away by police patrol. He behaved obviously inadequately, rushed into a confrontation, and hurled obscenities in the direction of the participants of the memorable action.

What happened next isn’t known, but on video it is possible to hear one of the women shout: “How much did you pay so that the police released you?!”

It should be noted that the monument to the hero Olshansky was established in honor of the landing operation performed on March 26th, 1944, by fighters of the 384th separate battalion of marines under the command of the senior lieutenant Konstantin Olshansky in Nikolaeva port. The group of marines consisting of 55 fighters landed to the rear of the Hitler’s troops. They managed to deflect 18 enemy attacks and kept the base until March 28th, when the city was liberated. By then Olshansky had died, and only 11 wounded and frost-bitten fighters survived. All 55 marines were awareded the Hero of the Soviet Union, and the 384th separate battalion, by the order of the Supreme Commander I. V. Stalin, received the honourable name “Nikolaev”.

It should also be noted that in Ukraine the decree of the president Poroshenko abolished the Defender of the Motherland Day, which was earlier celebrated on February 23rd, and moved the celebration to October 14th – celebrated by nationalists as the day of the foundation of UPA.
