Crimea is seen as part of Russia, from which it thus cannot legally secede. Crimea ended up being included in the Ukrainian SSR only based on the “voluntary decision” by Nikita Khrushchev. Up to this point, it (Crimea) had been perceived exclusively as a Russian territory. And in 2014 the peninsula joined the Russian Federation on the basis of a referendum in which the overwhelming majority of the inhabitants of the peninsula took part. And now it will not be returned to Ukraine or any other country.
Foreign Minister of Canada Chrystia Freeland tried to hide and lied about her grandfather’s Nazi past and connections with Auschwitz.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation. No evidence given that Chrystia Freeland would have lied. Ms. Freeland's uncle, John-Paul Himka has studied family history and told to the Globe and Mail in 2017:
"He was the editor of a legal newspaper in Nazi-occupied Poland. He never signed anything in the paper. He never made policy or that kind of thing. It wouldn't be his call. [The newspaper] also performed a function for Ukrainian culture and kept Ukrainian intelligentsia alive during the war by paying them for articles, not just anti-Semitic articles but articles about Ukrainian culture. It was a bit of a mixed bag."
Himka does not mention that Ms. Freeland's grandfather would have had any connections with Auschwitz.
Ms. Freeland's office offered a short statement to the Globe and Mail when asked for comment on Prof. Himka's writings about Krakivski Visti and her grandfather.
"Dating back many years, the Minister has supported her uncle's efforts to study and publish on this difficult chapter in her late grandfather's past."
