    The annual march in honor of Waffen-SS Latvian Legion members has kicked off in Riga.

    ​The annual Nazi veterans' march has been harshly criticized by a number of international anti-fascist organizations as well as of governments worldwide.

    Russian Foreign Ministry human rights ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov said earlier that the march, permitted by the Latvian authorities, violated international law and the principles of the Nuremberg trials.

      The Waffen SS was comprised of a million volunteers from more than 30 nations who joined the forces of the only nation on earth with enough courage to resist the alien contagion of Judeo-Bolshevism. They volunteered to protect their women and families from satan's minions who threatened the world and would easily have over run Europe without their efforts. The Wiking Division was mostly Norwegins and Danes/
      Hats off to the Latvians who still have the courage to honor them !
