Ukrainian Nazi soldiers to be declared national heroes

Summary of Disinformation

The soldiers of Nazi Ukrainian formations will be declared heroes by the Kyiv authorities.

Disproof

Ukraine does not recognize Ukrainian Nazi soldiers as heroes. None of the organizations mentioned in the new Ukrainian law about social protection of participants in the struggle for country's independence in the 20th century are Nazi. This law also does not declare their members "heroes".

Ukraine condemns Nazi regime and the promotion of its symbols.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis that is repeated ever since the outbreak of the Euromaidan revolution.

Further debunking by The Insider.
