A march glorifying the SS Galician Division was held today in Lvov.
Participants of the “March of Embroideries” in the center of Lvov chanted slogans glorifying the SS “Galician” division formed by the Nazis out of natives of the contemporary western territory of Ukraine.
The demonstrators chanted “Galicia – the division of heroes!”, “Heroes don’t die – enemies die!”, “Glory to the Nation, death to enemies!”, “Our land – hour heroes,” and “Remember, foreigner, Ukrainians are the bosses here!”
The police accompanying the procession did not intervene even though earlier the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law banning “Nazi ideology.”
