"in the 1st place Is an insult to veterans. They were created to Win, that They defended their Homeland. How was it possible to pass such laws? How was it possible to cross the Crossing of the Dnieper, the liberation of Kiev, Stalingrad, Kursk. I realize that this government wants to glorify the OUN/UPA.

What kind of true history we can speak in such terms?" quoted Shevchenko party website.
