"Glory to Ukraine" is a Nazi greeting

Summary of Disinformation

“Glory to Ukraine” and “Glory to heroes” is a Nazi greeting that has become an official greeting in Ukraine.

Disproof

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation.

"During the Euromaidan this slogan basically lost its particular connection to the OUN and became one of the symbols of the pro-European protests," says Oleksandr Zaitsev, a historian from the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv, in a DW article.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis.

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens: http://bit.ly/1Tl9X7W.

The insignificance of the "Right Sector" is evident from the election results – their candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections, and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections.
