I want to dispel a few myths about Stepan Bandera
I want to dispel a few myths about Stepan Bandera, which were invented as a scoop, and were supplemented with new unimaginable pearls during the revolution on the Maidan.
Bandera in the documents of the Nuremberg Trials:
SBU proved: NKVD committed crimes under the guise of the UPA
A terrible story about how the Bandera people killed children and tied them to a tree with barbed wire is just a juggling of facts.
The photo of these atrocities was placed by Polish psychiatrist Vitold Luniewski in his article "Psycho-szalowo posepnicza in forensic psychiatric casuistry" in the "Yearbook of Psychiatry".
This crime was committed by Tsiganka Marianna Dolinskaya in the background of insanity in connection with her husband's arrest, poverty and hunger in 1923.
And already Alexander Korman and Jerzy Vegersky much later created a fake of this photo with barbed wire in order to hyperbolize the crimes of the UPA.
The tragedy in Khatyn is also credited to the Bandera people, but what does the favorite Wikipedia say to us:
"Khatyn is a village in Belarus, destroyed on March 22, 1943 by the punitive divisions of the auxiliary security police from the formation of a collaborationist formation formed in Ukraine, the 118th Shutsmanschaft battalion for the murder of several German servicemen by partisans."
The 118th battalion of the security police is a collaborative juggling unit of the German auxiliary security police, formed in July 1942 in Kiev on the basis of one of the mouths of the 115th battalion of the security police and prisoners of war of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army.
The Volyn massacre
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 Second World war crimes, and these crimes were committed, unfortunately, both Ukrainians and Poles ....
Directly this armed confrontation began already in the summer of 1942 in the Kholm region, continued in 1943 in Volhynia, and continued there until early 1944.
In 1944 Galicia became the arena of the conflict, where both the Polish and Ukrainian undergrounds were developed.
In 1945-1947, the war went beyond the Second World War and continues on the territory of present-day Poland, on lands that the Ukrainians called Zakersonn ...
The goal of using the narrowing method to Volyn and in 1943 is obvious for me: to show the Poles as united victims, and Ukrainians as initiators.
Indeed, among the people who died in Volhynia - the majority of Poles, unlike, for example, Kholmsk, Zakerszony, where more Ukrainians died ...
Bandera UPA joined the spontaneous conflict between the Poles and Ukrainians sometime in April 1943.
At that time, the peasant war was already aflame, it sat down against the village ... (* Bandera himself was at that time in the German concentration camp of Sachsenhausen). "
Much is said about Bandera's collaboration with Hitler, but it turns out in 1941-1944 Bandera stayed in the German concentration camp of Sachsenhausen for not wanting to give up the "Act of Revival of the Ukrainian State."
In general, a lot of new information can be learned about him, his activity and family from his biography.
"Golden September. Chronicle of Galicia 1939-1941" A documentary about the events in Western Ukraine before the Great Patriotic War.
Why and for what purpose is such a mass-hysterical distortion of facts - obviously, a rhetorical question.
