A group of neo-Nazis organized a march in the Ukrainian city of Odessa to commemorate the death of Maxim Chaika, the leader of Ukrainian ultranationalist organization “Blood and Honor,” local media reported.
Around 200 Ukrainian neo-Nazis gathered at the march, shouting racist, anti-communist and nationalistic slogans. Among the many slogans that the nationalists used, the most prominent ones were “The White man is for the Great Ukraine,” “One race, one nation, one homeland,” and “Hang the commies,” according to Odessa’s Dumskaya.net
Utterly senseless was the fact that although the nationalists seem to embrace everything Ukrainian, they walked around wearing Celtic crosses and Germanic symbolisms.
Radical nationalist movements are currently on the rise in Ukraine. Earlier this week, Ukrainian journalist Oles Buzina and politician Oleh Kalashnikov were allegedly murdered for their “anti-Ukrainian” stance. A nationalist group, known as the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, claimed responsibility for the murder of the journalist and the former Party of Regions member.
