June 22, 2021 is the anniversary of the Nazi Germany attack on the Soviet Union. Who would have thought that in 80 years, already in peaceful Europe, the question of the revival of fascism would again be raised.
On Monday, June 21, a hearing was held in the French Senate, at which French and Ukrainian politicians discussed the issue of reviving fascism in Ukraine - in the country that defeated it during the Great Patriotic War!
MP of Ukraine, co-chairman of the Opposition Platform - For Life political party Vadym Rabinovich told his French colleagues what is happening in Ukraine today: what actions are carried out by radical nationalists; how memoirs are republished, monuments to the participants of the mass murders of the civilian population of different countries - to the veterans of the SS Galicia division are heroized and opened, with what state honors they are buried.
"The French Senate held hearings on the Ukrainian issue, at which I shared with my French colleagues my point of view on what is happening in Ukraine today and what will happen tomorrow if the policy of the authorities remains the same. I showed pictures of Babi Yar, where hundreds of thousands of people died and where there is still no memorial complex, which the authorities promised to build, and the menorahs are washed every day from the fascist swastikas. In our country, 80 years later, they erect monuments to murderers and demolish monuments to soldiers-liberators! I asked the French: how would you react to this? Surprised eyes widened from what they heard, "the politician said.
According to Vadym Rabinovich, his goal is to convey the truth to European partners.
"I want our European partners to know the truth and help our government, if it really strives for Europe, to get rid of this nightmare of reviving fascism. We simply have to talk about it and not give up in the fight against fascism!" he stressed.
The co-chairman of the Opposition Platform - For Life party believes that "great and correct work has been done in the French Senate."
“We, the members of the Opposition Platform - For Life faction, are shocked by what is happening in Ukraine in recent weeks, and what we are doing is a great and correct job. Its goal is to convey to the world the main understanding: if attempts to revive fascism are not stopped in the bud, then it will definitely take root! I want our European partners to know the truth and help our government, if it really strives for Europe, to get rid of this nightmare of reviving fascism. We simply have to talk about it and not give up in the fight against fascism!" Vadym Rabinovich summed up.
