This is the Kremlin’s systematic disinformation campaign that Ukraine is a Nazi state.
Negative articles in Russian media are caused by Ukraine’s refusal to take part in the celebrations of the "75th Anniversary of the Great Victory" in Moscow. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko emphasised that Ukraine intends to grieve on this day instead of celebrating. “Our position now remains the way it is: no, we are not going to celebrate May 9. We, like the entire European continent, are ready to understand why this tragedy happened 75 years later and are ready to forgive each other,” Prystaiko said.
Since 2015, in the framework of the law on decommunisation, on May 9, Ukraine began to celebrate "Victory Day over Nazism in World War II of 1939-1945." The holiday replaced the "Victory Day" over fascism in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945".
The relevant law No. 2539 “On the Perpetuation of the Victory over Nazism in World War II of 1939 - 1945” was adopted on April 9, 2015, by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. The law defines the sacred duty of the state and citizens of Ukraine to respect the memory of the victory over Nazism in WWII: war veterans, members of the Ukrainian liberation movement and the victims of Nazism. At the same time, while respecting the memory of those who fell during WWII, the use of Soviet symbols was cancelled. Instead, now the official symbol of the celebration of the Day of Victory over Nazism in WWII is the red poppy flower - the generally accepted symbol in the world for the celebration of memorable days of WWII.
Also, together with the EU countries, on May 8, Ukraine annually celebrates Remembrance and Reconciliation Day. The holiday is celebrated on the day of the surrender of Nazi Germany on May 8, 1945.
