This means that virtually all “Ukrainian” symbols are illegal in the Russian Federation… and rightfully so. The present junta glorifies the Nazi collaborators of the VOV… I’d remind my readers that the USA and USSR were allies in the fight against the fascists. The Anti-Hitler Coalition was no joke… however, US career military officers (mostly from the US Republican Party) sheltered Nazis… they hated communism so much that they whitewashed the actions of real war criminals who ordered and carried out enormities and atrocities of the worst sorts (whilst they threw poor spear-draggers like John Demjanjuk to the dogs). After all, it was only inferior Slavs who suffered… everyone knows that the Westerners are inherently superior! The USA supports those who collaborated with fascists… the Vatican supports those who collaborated with fascism… what more need I say? Ponder this… the US Republican Party supported Nazi war criminals and saw to it that they received pensions for their Nazi service… the US Republican Party applauded the denial of pension rights to NVA veterans. I seem to see a difference… one that’s supremely evil and without remedy. They call such people “Pro-Life”… I think not…
One last thing… this law means that the symbols of the so-called “Russian Liberation Army” and KONR are illegal in the RF. That means that the ROCOR should halt all glorification of the Vlasovtsy, the KONR, and of the Cossack SS Cavalry Corps, and of their treasonous activities. I wonder if that’s going to happen…
