The notorious Kiev politician, Oleh Lyashko, who is well-known for his controversial comments, said in a Facebook post that Germany "poorly realizes its great historic guilt" in regard to Ukraine as "one of the European nations that had suffered most from Nazis."
Interestingly, the Radical Party leader's views hardly differ from those who he blames for Ukraine's suffering during the Second World War. Earlier this week, Lyashko mocked a photo of Elizabeth II saying that the Queen is "an aggressive, cynical Bandera follower, a punisher granny, a loyal adherent of the Kiev junta. Her secret of youth is that she drinks fresh blood of DPR and LPR babies every morning." The scandalous politician also hailed the murder of Ukrainian opposition journalist Oles Buzina.
On Saturday, Angela Merkel said that her upcoming visit to Moscow on May 10 to honor the memory of millions of people who had been killed during World War II is very important despite existing disagreements between Berlin and Moscow.
The Soviet Union, whose resistance to the Nazis reversed the course of WWII, lost about 27 million people.
In April, the Ukrainian parliament passed a bill recognizing notorious ultranationalist groups, including those active in Ukraine during and after World War II, as fighters for the country's independence in the 20th century.
The UPA was established as the armed wing of the Ukrainian nationalists in 1942. The UPA operated mainly in western Ukraine, fighting against Soviet forces on the side of Nazi Germany. In 1943, the UPA massacred as many as 100,000 Polish civilians in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia.
The Ukrainian Radical Party leader called on Germany to pay "historic bills" to Ukraine.
