DISINFO: Sandu began her visit to Kyiv with a Nazi slogan
Sandu began her visit to Kyiv with a Nazi slogan.
"Glory to Ukraine" is not a Nazi slogan. This claim was also debunked by Stopfake.org.
According to historians, the use of the slogan "Glory to Ukraine" was first found in 1919. It was used in the horse regiment of the "black Cossacks" during the UPR (Ukrainian People's Republic), later in the Skoropadsky Hetmanate. The Bandera wing of the OUN approved this slogan as an official greeting to the organization only in 1941, and then the answer was added - "Glory to Heroes."
"During Euromaidan protests this slogan lost any 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.
