Ambassador of Germany in Ukraine Anka Feldhusen has condemned the March dedicated to Waffen-SS Division Galicia that took place in Kyiv yesterday as she reported on Twitter.

“Waffen-SS units participated in grave war crimes and the Holocaust during WWII. No volunteer organization that is fighting and working for Ukraine today should be associated with them,” she wrote.

On April 28, about 250 people marched in black embroidered shirts (vyshyvankas) on the occasion of the 78th anniversary of Waffen-SS Division "Galicia" and came on the Independence Square in Kyiv.

The 14th Waffen-SS Division "Galicia" was formed from volunteers in Lviv in the spring-summer of 1943. The traditional oath of the SS demanded an oath of allegiance, including that to the Reich's Fuhrer Adolf Hitler.
