    Aggressive policies by the United States and NATO have led to a growing threat of neo-Nazism in Ukraine, a political group ignored by European politicians, the head of Ukraine’s Communist Party Petro Symonenko said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — "As the development of events in Ukraine shows, European politicians, unfortunately, very often like to proclaim loud slogans calling for freedom and human rights and turning a blind eye to the growing neo-Nazi threat to Ukraine," Symonenko said at the fourth International Parliamentary Forum in Moscow.

    Symonenko added that the world would not be facing current challenges and threats, if joint efforts of the international community had prevented the United States and NATO aggression against former Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and other countries.

    "If the United States had not organized armed coups and civil wars around the globe, including Ukraine, had not supported terrorism and various radical movements, we wouldn't have these problems today, if the civilized world had not closed eyes to violence of neo-Nazis in the Ukraine," the politician added.

    Nationalism has been on the rise in Ukraine after the February 2014 coup and a conflict in the country's southeast. Right-wing radical groups including the Right Sector and the Azov Battalion openly operate in Ukraine.
