Levitsky: glorification of the OUN-UPA in Ukraine lends weight to the arguments of Russia
A law recognizing the Organization of Ukrainian nationalists (OUN) and Ukrainian insurgent army (UPA) fighters for freedom and independence of Ukraine strengthens the case of Russia, when she mentions the support of neo-Nazi ideology of the Ukrainian authorities, Melvin Levitsky, former U.S. Ambassador and Professor of political science at the University of Michigan in conversation international Business Times.

"Anything that strengthens the reputation of these groups, in which the overwhelming number of modern Ukrainian nationalists draw inspiration, just gives more weight to the Russian claims that the Ukrainian government - IBT) is a bunch of Nazis, terrorists," he said.

review of the former policy, there was no need to increase the status of the OUN-UPA, the most in the moment when in the fighting between government troops and the militia of the self-proclaimed republics in Eastern Ukraine has come a long lull." has the ability to be an attempt to raise a Ukrainian nationalism? In my opinion, does not make sense to put it so clearly, " said Levitsky, who is quoted by the magazine.

the draft law adopted by the Parliament, strengthening the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine in the opinion that the government Poroshenko is a Nazi, writes international Business Times. These fears have become a major factor in the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, it adds.

the log indicates a negative reaction that the bill has caused among the inhabitants of Ukraine, the leadership of the breakaway republics of Donbass, Russian politicians and social media users.

Members of the Ukrainian nationalist armed groups, like the UPA, were glorified by their participation in ethnic cleansing of poles in Ukraine, the use of terrorist acts and kidnappings against the Ukrainian post-Soviet government, reminiscent of the international Business Times.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted on Thursday on the recognition of OUN-UPA fighters for independence of Ukraine in the XX century and about providing their members with social guarantees. At the same time a Law was passed banning the Communist and Nazi symbols in Ukraine. According to the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, certain mandatory provisions of these acts provide grounds for raising the question of their inconsistency with international obligations of Ukraine.

The Supreme court of the Russian Federation in November 2014 was included in the list of extremist organizations "Right sector" Ukrainian national Assembly - Ukrainian national self-defense "(UNA-UNSO), the Ukrainian Organization "Brotherhood" and " Trident behalf of Stepan Bandera and the Ukrainian insurgent army (UPA).
