|“Anti-Hungarian march of Ukrainian Nationalists in Uzhgorod”|
“Ukraine, having lost the Crimea and made war on the Donbass because of denying the rights of its peoples on language, culture, and self-determination, finds it much easier … to instill terror than to think about the preservation of the state in a political form that is suitable not only for Kiev and Lviv, but also for Transcarpathia, Odessa, Kharkov, Donbass.”

A few days ago in Transcarpathian Uzhgorod they held a “march of glory,” a torchlight parade of Ukrainian nationalists. The excited crowd marched through the streets under the banner of the Pravy Sektor Azov battalion and the “Carpathian Whip,” shouting offensive imprecations against the Hungarians. The culmination was the slogan “Magyars – to the knives! To the knives! To the knives!”
Nazists from C14 – the combat wing of the Svoboda party – took part in the march. The organizers of this event dedicated to the 77th anniversary of the “Carpathian Ukraine” proclaimed aloud their readiness to go against Hungarian figures. The majority of the participants in the anti-Hungarian march were not residents of Transcarpathia – they had been brought to the “march of glory” from other regions of Ukraine.
