Members of the French Senate were extremely surprised by the scale of the activities of neo-Nazi organizations in Ukraine. According to the results of the Senate hearings, the Ukraine's MP, co-chairman of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, Vadym Rabinovich, spoke about this on the air of Pershiy Nezalezhniy TV channel.
According to the MP, during the hearings, which took place today, he shared information about the current situation in Ukraine with the French senators.
"I showed photos of Babi Yar, showed that at the place where tens of thousands of people died, there is nothing but a memorial complex, nothing but a menorah erected many, many years ago and which, unfortunately, is washed away from fascist crosses every morning," the deputy declared.
According to him, members of the French Senate were extremely surprised and outraged by the situation with the support of radical movements in Ukraine.
"I didn't even touch any nationalist organizations, we didn't get to that. I only showed direct respect for the Waffen-SS Division Galicia that killed people. Today, 80 years later, we are erecting monuments to murderers and demolishing monuments to those who liberated our country. I asked the French how they would react to the fact that de Gaulle's monuments would be demolished in the country, so they all had square eyes," Rabinovich said.
The MP believes that he, as a People's Deputy, is obliged to convey to the world political arena the message that "if fascism is not defeated at the root, it will definitely rise and find everyone."
Rabinovich also commented on the situation with neo-Nazi organizations, which has been unfolding in Ukraine over the past two weeks.
"I watched as yesterday the nationalists came under the building where the judge of the Constitutional Court lives, with fireworks to prove their democracy. I have been showing photos from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada here (in the French Senate, - ed.) for the last three weeks only. And especially fantastic pictures for May 9 - unveiling of a memorial plaque to the murderer, the member of SS Division Galicia, etc," he said.
Rabinovich insists that Ukraine's European partners are obliged to help the Ukrainian government, if it really aspires to Europe, to get rid of the reviving nightmare of fascism.
Opposition Platform - For Life, strongly condemns manifestations of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and national radicalism, consistently exposes the commitment of Zelensky's government to such ugly manifestations of ideologies unacceptable for the civilized world community.
The party appealed to the world community to condemn the violence against civilians, neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic actions that are committed by numerous and freely acting in Ukraine neo-Nazi organizations with impunity, with the knowledge and approval of Zelensky and his entourage.
