Translated by Ollie Richardson 14:16:50 27/12/2016 novorosinform.org The Rada has made a decision on the planned financing of nationalistic youth formations. The speaker of the Ukrainian parliament Parubiy, on his page on Facebook, noted that “this year nearly for the first time in the history of Independent Ukraine the Verkhovna Rada adopted the State Budget in which financial support of the Ukrainian youth patriotic organizations is provided”. “Not only is supporting patriotic youth organizations a guarantee of our national security, it is a guarantee of our defense capabilities, because scout organizations, including “Plast”, since childhood raise patriotic and responsible citizens ready to protect our Fatherland,” wrote Parubiy. “I am proud of the fact that in the late 80’s and the beginning of the 90’s, I was involved in a revival of the activity of “Plast” in Independent Ukraine,” added Parubiy. As a reminder, in the 1920-1930’s “Plast” was a source of manpower for the armed nationalist underground, a school of young OUN terrorists. Today’s “Plast” deeply honors the “glorious” past.
