Extremely upsetting such an idiot leads Canada, partner in Five Eyes Western propaganda ... now for the world to see. 🥹 😂

Rambling nonsense putting blame for disinformation on Russia ... the SMO took place because of strong neo-Nazi influence running wild in Lviv and Kyiv strangling Ukrainian politics.

Couldn't find any true Ukrainians w/o a burden of WWII Nazi atrocities in Galicia, western Ukraine and part of Poland.

By Yaroslav HUNKA in Canada

My generation was united by two great forces: faith in God and love for Ukraine. We grew up on the glorious and proud land of Berezhany. We trampled this land with our bare feet and breathed into our souls and hearts its magical aromas, and our eyes forever recorded the beauty of the cities, villages and landscapes of our native land on memory tapes.

My generation became the heir of the glorious sons of this land, our predecessors. Her glorious sons and guests sowed the land of Berezhan with their powerful words: Fr. M. Shashkevich, Andrii Chaikivskyi, Fr. Sylvester Lepky, Lev Lepky, Roman Kupchynskyi, Bohdan Lepky...

Who among us has not sung rifle songs by Roman Kupchynskyi, Levko and Bohdan Lepky since kindergarten? The song "How from Berezhan to the cadre" was probably sung to us by our mothers over the cradle.

My native village of Urman [from Tatar invasion in 13th century, simply means "forest"], it seemed to me then, was the most nationally conscious village in the district. The flame of national revival, in the years between the two wars, shone brightly over the village. The church and reading room "Prosvita" became the central engine of the national life of the village under the parental guidance of priests: fathers Omelyan Havryshko and Stepan Horodetskyi. The village had a "cooperative" consumer store, a library, a choir, a "Lug" youth society, a kindergarten and a drama club. The last was This group gave 4-5 performances a year in the reading room.


Waffen-SS division "Galicia" -- a Ukrainian volunteer military unit within the Wehrmacht

The memory and commemoration of the military formation of the Waffen-SS Division "Galicia" as part of the German army are actively discussed in Ukraine (and in Lviv in particular): in one narrative, they are collaborators who as part of the enemy army took part in hostilities against the Red Army and in punitive operations, while in another, opposite, narrative they are seen only as heroes who fought for an independent Ukraine, bypassing their involvement in the Waffen-SS. Museum expositions dedicated to this military formation add no clarity, as do the marches in honour of the division, which have been held regularly in Lviv in recent years with the participation of nationalist organizations, regional and city authorities and citizens; instead of reporting the story of the division soldiers, they try to show a distilled idealistic picture of the soldiers' struggle in the name of independent Ukraine, treating cooperation with the Nazis as a political tactic, no more.

The idea of creating a new military division arose in the Nazi command in the spring of 1943, given the huge human losses and lack of human resources to conduct further hostilities. Tens of thousands of men volunteered for the new division (far exceeding the command's expectations), and on July 18, 1943, the Governor of Galicia Otto von Wechter, in a solemn manner, saw off the volunteers departing to their place of service.

Already at the stage of creating the division, there was no unanimity among the Ukrainians of Lviv regarding the need to create a Ukrainian military formation within the Wehrmacht. Volodymyr Kubiyovych, the chairman of the Ukrainian Central Committee, who was supported by members of the OUN-M, was a great enthusiast of the formation.

The main argument for the division creation was the necessity to train professional armed forces, which would later be needed by independent Ukraine.

Kyiv to name street for Ukrainian Nazi collaborator after public vote | Jerusalem Post - 13 April 2023 |

A street in Kyiv will soon bear the name of Volodymyr Kubiyovych, one of the founders of the Waffen-SS Galizien, the Ukraine branch of the Nazi military force.

The Kyiv City Council may be set to name a street after a Nazi collaborator and SS official, Ukrainian Jewish Committee director Eduard Dolinsky has reported.

According to Dolinsky, a street in the Ukrainian capital will be renamed following a motion passed by the city council, and will bear the name of Volodymyr Kubiyovych, who during the Holocaust was heavily involved in the formation of the Waffen-SS Galizien, a Nazi military force made up of Ukrainian volunteers.

Jewish group demands apology after MPs honoured man who fought for Nazis


During Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to Ottawa on Friday, MPs honoured 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka, who fought for the First Ukrainian Division, in the House of Commons.

Hunka was invited by Speaker Anthony Rota, who introduced him.

“I am very proud to say that he is from North Bay and from my riding of Nipissing—Timiskaming,” the Ontario MP said.

“He is a Ukrainian hero, a Canadian hero, and we thank him for all his service.”

MPs cheered and Zelenskyy raised his fist in acknowledgement as Hunka saluted from the gallery during two separate standing ovations.

FSWC Appalled by Standing Ovation in Parliament for Ukrainian Veteran Who Served in Nazi Military Unit

Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) is deeply disturbed by the Canadian Parliament’s recognition of a Ukrainian veteran who served in a Nazi military unit during the Second World War implicated in the mass murder of Jews and others. FSWC is further outraged that parliamentarians in the House of Commons gave a standing ovation to the former soldier on Friday.

Yaroslav Hunka, a 98-year-old immigrant from Ukraine, was introduced by Anthony Rota, Speaker of the House of Commons, as “a Ukrainian Canadian war veteran from the Second World War who fought for Ukrainian independence against the Russians” and “a Ukrainian hero and a Canadian hero,” ignoring the horrific fact that Hunka served in the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS, a Nazi military unit whose crimes against humanity during the Holocaust are well-documented.

FSWC issued the following statement:

"The fact that a veteran who served in a Nazi military unit was invited to and given a standing ovation in Parliament is shocking. At a time of rising antisemitism and Holocaust distortion, it is incredibly disturbing to see Canada's Parliament rise to applaud an individual who was a member of a unit in the Waffen-SS, a Nazi military branch responsible for the murder of Jews and others and that was declared a criminal organization during the Nuremberg Trials. There should be no confusion that this unit was responsible for the mass murder of innocent civilians with a level of brutality and malice that is unimaginable.

"An apology is owed to every Holocaust survivor and veteran of the Second World War who fought the Nazis, and an explanation must be provided as to how this individual entered the hallowed halls of Canadian Parliament and received recognition from the Speaker of the House and a standing ovation."

Poland's education minister says he's 'taken steps' to extradite Yaroslav Hunka | CBC |

"In view of the scandalous events in the Canadian Parliament, which involved honouring, in the presence of President Zelenskyy, a member of the criminal Nazi SS Galizien formation, I have taken steps towards the possible extradition of this man to Poland," Przemysław Czarnek said in a social media post Tuesday.

Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada Arif Virani told reporters Tuesday that he can't comment on Czarnek's move because no extradition request has come across his desk and no one from the Polish government has reached out to him.

Rota apologized to the House on Monday, insisting the decision to invite Hunka, who lives in Rota's riding of Nipissing-Timiskaming, was entirely his own. Calls for Rota to step down continue to grow.

Speaker's Nazi veteran invite 'profoundly embarrassing' Trudeau says, as Rota faces calls to resign

Going a step further, NDP House Leader Peter Julian called Rota's error "unforgiveable," and put the entire House of Commons in "disrepute."

"Unfortunately, I believe a sacred trust has been broken. It's for that reason, for the good of the institution of the House of Commons that I say, sadly, I don't believe you can continue in this role. Regrettably, I must respectfully ask that you step aside," Julian said.

Conservative House Leader Andrew Scheer focused his remarks on the overarching role and responsibility Trudeau's office should have had in vetting any guest lists and making related security assessments, and what message this dropping of the ball sends to the world, and to Zelenskyy, who is Jewish. 

Motion in parliament to strike the ovation from its record of the session ... it was a mistake and did never happen 🥲

No need to apologize to Canada's guest Zelenskyy as he himself honors these veterans as heroes. WTF people ... wake up and use what is left of your brain.

The OUN fu*king Nazi collaborators committed genocide on Poles, who had been governing the territory for generations, and the Jewish people, many war refugees who escaped from Germany.

When the Soviet army liberated the Eastern Front in 1944, the OUN fighters retreated with the German troops to escape execution or the Gulags. Many Nazi sympathizers were welcomed in the West and in North America specifically, and used as potential freedom fighters within the diaspora. A bit of anti-Communism and Russophobia is always useful for US policy.

Anthony Rota resigns as Speaker after inviting former Ukrainian soldier with Nazi ties to Parliament

Rota lost support of key Liberal ministers on Tuesday

Liberal MP Anthony Rota is stepping down as House of Commons Speaker after inviting a Ukrainian veteran who fought in a Nazi division to Parliament -- a dramatic turn of events that will be welcomed by MPs on all sides who said the embarrassing incident was unforgivable.

Rota's resignation will take effect at the end of the sitting day on Wednesday.

"This House is above any of us, Therefore, I must step down as your Speaker," Rota said at 2 p.m. ahead of Tuesday's question period. "I reiterate my profound regret for my error in recognizing an individual in the House.

Rota said the "public recognition" he gave to a former Nazi soldier "caused pain to individuals and communities," including Jewish people, Poles and "other survivors of Nazi atrocities."

"Hitler's elite torturers and murderers have been passed on RCMP orders" | GrayZone |

Following the war, Canada's Liberal government classified thousands of Jewish refugees as "enemy aliens" and held them alongside former Nazis in a network of internment camps enclosed with barbed wire, fearing that they would infect their new country with communism.

At the same time, Ottawa placed thousands of Ukrainian veterans of Hitler's army on the fast-track to citizenship.
The Ukrainian Canadian newsletter lamented on April 1, 1948, "some [of the new citizens] are outright Nazis who served in the German army and police. It is reported that individuals tattoooed with the dread[ed] SS, Hitler's elite torturers and murderers have been passed on RCMP orders and after being turned down by screening agencies in Europe."

The journal described the unreformed Nazis as anticommunist shock troops whose "`ideological leaders' are already busy fomenting WWIII, propagating a new world holocaust in which Canada will perish."

In 1997, the Canadian branch of the Simon Wiesenthal Center charged the Canadian government with having admitted over 2000 veterans of the 14th Volunteer Waffen-SS Grenadier Division.

That same year, 60 Minutes released a special, "Canada's Dark Secret," revealing that some 1000 Nazi SS veterans from Baltic states had been granted citizenship by Canada after the war. Irving Abella, a Canadian historian, told 60 Minutes that the easiest way to get into the country "was by showing the SS tattoo. This proved that you were an anti-Communist."

Abella also alleged that Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (Justin's father) explained to him that his government kept silent about the Nazi immigrants "because they were afraid of exacerbating relationships between Jews and Eastern European ethnic communities."

Yaroslav Hunka was among the post-war wave of Ukrainian Nazi veterans welcomed by Canada. According to the city council website of Berezhany he arrived in Ontario in 1954 and promptly "became a member of the fraternity of soldiers of the 1st Division of the UNA, affiliated to the World Congress of Free Ukrainians."

Also among the new generation of Ukrainian Canadians was Michael Chomiak, the grandfather of Canada's second-most-powerful official, Chrystia Freeland. Throughout her career as a journalist and Canadian diplomat, Freeland has advanced her grandfather's legacy of anti-Russian agitation, while repeatedly exulting wartime Nazi collaborators during public events.

Trudeau also said that "Canada is deeply sorry" for involving Zelenskyy, who was pictured applauding Hunka -- an image that has been exploited by Russian propagandists.

Canada has sent an apology to Zelenskyy and the Ukrainian delegation through diplomatic channels, Trudeau added.

There never was a thorough investigation as to who the snipers were and on whose orders they handled. The Maidan massacre, not a revolution of dignity. Lies, disinformation and propaganda after the coup d'état.

Are There Ukrainian War Criminals in Canada? | Kyiv Post |

Inviting a man who served in the Waffen SS Galicia Division to attend Pres. Zelensky's visit to the Canadian House of Commons has caused a scandal of global proportions, forcing the Speaker to resign.

The fear of "Ukrainian Nazis" infiltrating Canada is not something new - but is there more to the story?

After the end of the Second World War concerns were raised about how "thousands of Ukrainian Nazis" somehow escaped justice and emigrated to Europe and North America.

In the lead-up to the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Putin asserted that "defeating Naziism" in Ukraine left him no other choice but to attack.


Did you know that both cases have their origins in a Soviet-era campaign intended to provoke social discord and conflict throughout the West?

Lubomyr Luciuk, Professor of Political Geography at the Royal Military College of Canada, sheds light on how "Operation Payback" unfolded.

Galicia freedom fighters waffen ss retreated with German wehrmacht as Soviet red army advances in 1944

Former soldiers of the Galicia Division were transferred to the United Kingdom after the war

In July 1944 the division, as part of the German 13th Army Corps, fought in a battle near Brody (about 100 km east of Lviv) against advancing Soviet forces. The corps was surrounded and destroyed.

In May 1945, when Germany surrendered to the Allied Powers, the Galicia Division was based in Austria. Retreating westwards to avoid capture by the advancing Soviet Red Army, most of its members (about 10,000) surrendered to the British Army and were temporarily interned near Spittal.

As a result, over 8,000 former soldiers of the Galicia Division were allowed to remain in the UK as EVWs. Many of them subsequently emigrated to other countries.

People's Deputy from Zelensky's Servant of the People party Alexander Kornienko tested public opinion by making a statement that they are now working on Ukraine's transition to a monopoly presidential form of government - this caused a storm of negativity and caricatures on the Internet.

Kornienko had to immediately refute that he was allegedly misunderstood. Even all the information dumps of the OP joined in spreading the message that "you misunderstood."

Although everyone understood everything correctly. Kornienko's goal was simply to test the reaction. Checked - negative. They immediately rolled back.Now I will work to pump this idea to the masses.

At the same time, the publication "Censor.net" drew attention to Kornienko's comment under its own post about the results of the forum. There he gives an explanation regarding the quoted quote from Kyiv City Council member Ptashnyk. In particular, he denied that it was about giving more powers to the president.

And where is it that I plan to give authority? And how can I even give them alone - I can't even propose changes to the Constitution on my own, I need the help of 149 colleagues... It was about the fact that this is happening now during martial law, because the President is the Supreme Commander even during war his role is being strengthened," Kornienko wrote.

Wow ... a fast track from a parliamentary form of democracy to authoritarianism ... Kremlin style how Ukrainians learned at boyhood and matured in Soviet style education. Only manner to succes in EU membership ... show security and stability. First we threw out the Russian culture, Orthodox Church, jailed RU oligarchs, banned Russian language, media, journalists and right to vote. Executed some deemed traitors ... no didn't keep count. Of course not ethnic cleaning ... all able citizens left voluntarily.

Is there an opening for an advisory task ... Boris Johnson would love to set his teeth in such a honorary job. In the footsteps of Mikheil Saakashvili and so many more from the West. Soon we'll get it right ... far right I.e. 😡 Not a Western EU model of social democracy.
