It took over a year to the us Congress saw, because this unit is a bunch of outright Nazis, flaunting with the emblems of Nazi SS troops and acting Like Nazis in occupied territory. But better late than never, " he said on the issue made in the U.S. Congress, the statements of the Official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich." the next logical step is to recognize, finally, that last year's coup in Kiev, strongly supported by Washington, was by the hands of those most Nazi thugs.
