“14/88” & the Swastika Are the New Symbols of Ukrainian Youth

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard



After the n-th time reviewing the video of the beating of two girls by a group of teenagers, journalists of “Cheline” saw on the concrete wall behind all the action that happened inscriptions, or more precisely a Nazi swastika and the numbers “14/88”.

Maybe it’s just a coincidence, however, looking at the situation like a puzzle and analyzing it, we can assume that the children’s group, which keeps the central district of the city in fear, not just constantly gathers at the “Megacenter”, but in order to communicate on high themes.

What the objectives of this group of teenagers are is not yet known.

However, on the pages on social networks of these teenagers, who simply observed or filmed on their phones the confrontation of girls, a real cult of street fights is traced.

14/88 is a codified slogan of white neo-Nazis or Nazis. The number 14 means fourteen words of neo-Nazi ideologue David lane: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children”. The number 88 is a codified greeting Heil Hitler!, since the letter H is the eighth in the Latin alphabet.
