In the 21st century in the capital of Ukraine in the building of the Kiev Regional Administration the awarding of UPA veterans took place. These people were awarded with medals “For merits in front of Kiev”!
The main methods that UPA used to influence the population of regions under its control was terror, fear, and intimidation. They dealt with their own militants who fell under suspicion very brutally.
It would be interesting to know what merits did this person of old age serving in UPA receive an award for?
Now the regime diligently heroises people who committed horrifying atrocities during the years of war.
There were about 40,000 people in total in the ranks of UPA. No reliable data about their battles with German fascists has been recorded, but concerning their participation in punitive operations against partisans, Jews, communists, and other participants of the resistance to fascists – there is more than enough data.
It is difficult to understand the logic of people who heroise UPA militants – after all, more than 6 million Ukrainians fought in the ranks of the Red Army, i.e. practically in every Ukrainian family there are successors of the Great Victory of our people over fascism.
Remember this. The absence of memory is the most terrible evil for the human race.
