This is not a movie – albeit the production value certainly has some money behind it. The video of the National Corps rally is from an event in Kiev, published on January 29th.
Notice the large poster in the Square that says “Freedom is our Religion” in English – at which audience is it targeted?
Yesterday, on February 3, the Ukrainian neo-Nazi party “National Corps” organized a “festival of Ukrainian culture and national spirit” in the Dnieper. The newly formed organisation is a political off-shoot of the Azov military neo-Nazi movement.
“A lot of people visited the event. The guests found a very interesting and diverse program, with something for everyone’s liking” it was reported.
The program included classes on leadership, competitions in arm-wrestling, training in medical care, an exhibition of modern Ukrainian literature and an exhibition of folk embroidery. There was a tattoo station where everyone could get one of a patriotic design for free; educational lectures on Ukrainian history, musician performances, and so on.
Ukrainian neo-Nazis called on young people and their use of free time for “self-development and cultural recreation” and promised to continue to carry out “national events.”
