Today for Ukraine the celebration of the victory over fascism in World War II acquired a true meaning. This was stated by Chairman of the “Samopomich” faction Oleh Bereziuk after the solemn session of the Verkhovna Rada.
“Today, in the hall of the Parliament there were those heroes who on the different sides of the front line fought against Nazism and liberated the Ukrainian land. After all, the Ukrainian veterans who fought in the Red Army and, for the first time in the history of Ukraine, the soldiers of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) took part in the solemn session of the Verkhovna Rada,” he stated.
The MP stressed the importance of the fact that today the UPA veterans who fought against Nazism and Communism under the blue-and-yellow flags are not only moral authority but are also recognized by the state as fighters for Ukraine’s independence.
“Especially touching was the presence of Myroslav Symchych, Hero Sotnyk of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, in the hall of the Verkhovna Rada, which is a symbol of the victory of the UPA and respect for all those who died for freedom of Ukraine”, said Bereziuk.
