Earlier, Ambassador of Israel to Ukraine Joel Lion has written an open letter in which he stated that he is shocked by a decision of Lviv Regional Council to declare 2019 as the year of Stepan Bandera, leader of one of OUN (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) wings, Ukraine's far-right totalitarian party, which stood for elimination of Jews, Russians, and Poles from Ukraine. The Washington Post wrote that Bandera had entered into a “tactical relationship with Nazi Germany” and that his followers “were accused of committing atrocities against Poles and Jews.”
