Humiliation and Hatred: How Neo-Nazis Mocked War Veterans in Kiev

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


Despite the announcement of the President of the country Petro Poroshenko of May 9th as the Day of reconciliation, this day became a day of mockeries and humiliations concerning the veterans of the Great Patriotic War and their relatives. The correspondent of the Federal News Agency (FAN) reports about this, having submitted a video from the place of events.

In the video it is possible to see a series of attacks on veterans and their relatives by neo-Nazis from the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN, as well as UPA, are forbidden in the Russian Federation). The thugs attacked the participants of the action “immortal regiment” in the center of Kiev, near the Arsenalnaya metro station where the procession began.

Hundreds of citizens and tourists became witnesses of the ugly scenes of elderly people being attacked.

“I won’t remove my St. George’s Ribbon, this is the memory of my father,” shouted one women, while she was being grabbed by her hands and her father’s portrait was being pulled away.

“You are not ashamed, what are you doing, freaks?!” shouted another woman, whose portrait was pulled away and snapped over the knee.

“Where is your freedom, where is your free Ukraine, rubbish?!” shouted the pensioner whose ribbon was yanked from her jacket collar.

But the elderly woman who was squeezed into a corner by police officers summarised best of all the situation:

“Thanks to Poroshenko, thanks to Groysman, thanks to all who brought Ukraine to such shamelessness! And a separate thanks to Mrs Merkel for supporting these wretches!”

Eventually, the column started to move. Shouts from the crowd shouts could be heard: “Shame!” and “Fascism won’t pass!”. In response neo-Nazis shout: “Glory to Ukraine!”, “Death to enemies!”, and so on. The crowd sang military songs in reply: “Victory Day”, “Sacred war”, and others.

As a reminder, earlier FAN reported that the entire center of Kiev is covered with leaflets with appeals to neo-Nazis to come the next day by 9 in the morning to the Arsenalnaya metro station to deal shortly with participants of the “immortal regiment” procession. Nevertheless, the authorities couldn’t or didn’t want to prevent the punishment of veterans and their families.
