I would like to dispel a few myths about Stepan Bandera
I would like to dispel a few myths about Stepan Bandera, which were invented both in the scoop, and supplemented with new unimaginable pearls for the period of the revolution on the Maidan.
Bandera in the documents of the Nuremberg process:
SBU proved: the NKVD committed crimes under the guise of UPA
A terrible story about how Bandera killed children and tied them to a tree with barbed wire - just a juggling of facts.
The photograph of these atrocities was posted by the Polish psychiatrist Witold Luniewski in his article “Psycho-szalowo posepnicza in forensic psychiatric casuistry” in the “Yearbook of Psychiatry”.
This crime was committed by the Cygan woman Marianna Dolinskaya against the background of madness in connection with the arrest of her husband, poverty and hunger in 1923.
And already Alexander Korman and Jerzy Wegersky much later created a fake of this photo with barbed wire in order to exaggerate the crimes of the UPA.
The tragedy in Khatyn is also attributed to Banderovites, but what will our favorite Wikipedia tell us:
"Khatyn is a village in Belarus, which was destroyed on March 22, 1943 by the punitive divisions of the auxiliary security police from the 118th Schutzmanshaft battalion formed in Ukraine by the collaborationist unit for the murder of several German soldiers by partisans."
The 118th Security Police Battalion is a collaborationist Schutzmanshaft division of the German auxiliary security police, formed in July 1942 in Kiev on the basis of one of the mouths of the 115th Security Police Battalion and from the prisoners of war of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army.
Such a terrible event really answers the truth.
But you need to consider one "but"!
Vladimir Vyatrovich: "The Volyn tragedy is part of the Polish-Ukrainian war ... It was a war, an ugly war, with inherent World War II war crimes, and, unfortunately, both Ukrainians and Poles committed these crimes ....
Directly this armed confrontation began in the summer of 1942 in the Kholm region, continued in 1943 in Volyn, and continued there until the beginning of 1944.
In 1944, Galicia itself became the scene of the conflict, where both the Polish and Ukrainian underground forces were developed.
In 1945-1947, the war goes beyond the Second World War and continues on the territory of present-day Poland, on lands that Ukrainians called Zakerzonnyam ...
The purpose of using the technique is narrowing down to Volyn and 1943 for me is obvious: to show the Poles as single victims, and the Ukrainians as initiators.
After all, indeed, among the people who died in Volyn - the majority of Poles, unlike, for example, Kholmshchina, Zakerzonia, where more Ukrainians died ...
Bandera UPA joined the spontaneous conflict between the Poles and the Ukrainians somewhere in April 1943.
At that time, the peasant war was already burning, the village was against the village ... (* Bandera himself was at that time in the German concentration camp Sachsenhausen). "
Much is said about the cooperation of Bandera with Hitler, but it turns out in 1941-1944 that Bandera stayed in the German concentration camp Sachsenhausen for not wanting to abandon the “Act of the revival of the Ukrainian state”.
In general, many new things can be found out about him, his activities and his family from elementary biography.
"Golden September. Chronicle of Galicia 1939-1941" A documentary film that tells about the events in Western Ukraine before the start of the Great Patriotic War.
Why and for what purpose is such a massively hysterical distortion of facts - obviously, a rhetorical question.
