WP: rejection of the Soviet symbols were again divided Ukraine
The willingness of the Ukrainian authorities to formally break with the Communist past has met resistance from residents, writes the American magazine.

"tearing down statues of Lenin. Red stars chop with mosaics of the Kiev metro. Streets named after Soviet heroes, rename. Across the country in full swing sweep of communism before the independence Day of Ukraine on 24 August, " writes the print edition.

However, the actions of the authorities provoked the derision of critics in a divided nation, where the enemy of the people for one person is a hero to other WP writes.

"The Soviet story left so many traces that almost every intersection can provoke political debate. Both supporters and opponents of efforts by the authorities report that at stake - Ukrainian identity, " - emphasizes the log.

review supporters of decommunization, without a complete "cleaning" Ukraine will never be able to leave behind its Soviet past. According to other, it makes no sense to focus on matters of history And symbolism in the context of a weak domestic economy And the ongoing fighting in the East of the country.

"opponents of these measures argue that the new laws not only rewrite the history of Ukraine, but also reshapes her identity. The majority of Ukrainians are Russian speakers, And even in Kiev, the capital of the country - that Russian is the predominant language on the streets. In some of the areas of modern Ukraine's centuries-old relationship with Russia ", - stated in the publication.
Ukraine has always fluctuates between Russia And the West - And some believe that it is unfair to cross off one of those parties from the history books, writes WP.

"I am a citizen of Ukraine. I am proud of my country, but I don't agree with what is currently happening. We fought under the red flag, which is now prohibited, " says the Ukrainian veteran Nikolay Tsarev.

in may in Ukraine entered into force adopted by the Verkhovna Rada in early April, the law's condemnation of Communist And Nazi regimes, for example, prohibiting propaganda of Soviet symbols. The document caused a great resonance in society, because it has not been clearly written by the boundaries of its use. The government promised to amend the law changes And remove inaccuracies.
