In the USA and Canada are interested in the former SS men from Latvia


Officials from the United States and Canada expressed interest in the information about the former members of the Latvian SS Legion who currently reside in these countries. On this issue, American and Canadian officials turned to the Russian Federation.


They provided such information to RIA News.

In particular, Peter Carr, a spokesman for the US Department of Justice, announced today that the agency is ready to conduct an investigation to identify veterans of the Latvian SS Legion living in the United States. The US Department of Justice will do this immediately after receiving a request from the Russian Federation through intergovernmental channels.

The Canadian Department of Justice has asked the authorities of the Russian Federation to provide him with information about former Latvian SS men living in Canada. Allison Storey of the press service of the ministry said that the agency will check all the information received on the program of crimes against humanity and war crimes. Working with the border and migration services, as well as with law enforcement agencies, the Department of Justice will do everything possible so that Canada does not become a refuge for war criminals.

The question of Nazi criminals from Latvia was raised on March 14, when Russian historians published information on 96 veterans of the Latvian SS corps who are still alive and are in different countries of the world, including the USA and Canada.

    Hmm ... Strange thing. I would even say that is very strange. Usually the USA and Canada behave differently.
    Apparently large image losses loom ahead of the 75th anniversary.
    Or is it just the usual trepidation of the Foreign Ministry?
    However, the situation is worth observing.

      Most likely, the personal initiative of the American official, thinking people still remained there, but when he reaches the highest ranks, they will merge to nothing as always, or say that the verified information is not true, and the official will be passed through the gauntlet system.

        You're wrong. There, in Canada and the USA, financial troubles are outlined, according to some overseas politicians and financiers more abruptly than in the thirties of the last century.
        So they are trying to establish relations with RUSSIA in which they see a sort of island of stability, as in the thirties of the last century, when the orders of the Soviet Union helped to overcome the crisis.
        And about the Nazi criminals in Canada and the United States know perfectly well, at one time they were given political asylum for serving the Nazis.

          A lot of things are said about the Jewish diasporas, including the Jews themselves.
          Zionists in Europe helped Hitler become a Fuhrer, and then pretended to be nothing to do with, and they also represented victims.
          This SOVIET PEOPLE of Jewish nationality began to be killed on June 22, 1941. The Poles began the genocide, which together with the Germans destroyed Jews in the border towns of the Soviet Union.
          While WWII was raging in Europe, and Jews were also being destroyed in concentration camps, Zionists in the Middle East worked very closely with the Nazis against the British and French, and were more engaged in the destruction of Arabs. They cleaned * living space * for themselves with German weapons for German money.

        It is hard to believe after the vote of the above countries against the condemnation of Nazism.
        Maximum deported to Latvia. But "kipish" will be above the roof.
        It is interesting what the so-called human rights activists will say about this.

        Do not forget about the Jewish diasporas of the aforementioned countries - these will provide a resonance, and they will not let you go on the brakes, which is undoubtedly correct. If even the slightest involvement of the newly identified ghouls in the same Holocaust is proved, then the rest of their days can be very difficult for existence. yes

          Jewish diasporas, those are also "truth-loving". When they are profitable, they will close their eyes to everything. Take a look at Ukraine, with their "Well .... Dobandera". Nonsense, it doesn’t fit in my head, and nothing, everything is fine with them. I had a familiar Jew, Felix, who even fought as a volunteer in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. So much for the resonance.

              If the question is being asked about the benefits, then, to some in this world, it would be worthwhile, to put it mildly, more modestly. The same to some "diasporas". And then you get an interesting parsley, on the one hand, "we are the most injured party," on the other, "we will not miss our profit." Yes, what am I saying here, there are such cunningly made nationalities, you know them perfectly.

      Strange affair

      Nothing strange. The Baltic states and Ukraine will merge. They brought up Natsiks, but they did not fulfill their task. Everyone in the states is well aware of everyone. So in the near future (a year or two), we will watch an interesting action, entitled "The USA is taking measures against the spread of Nazism in Western Europe." . It is clear that all this is two-faced, but they will play to the public to the fullest.

    Outrageous hypocrisy - trying to shove a lamb into the skin.
    All refugees dissatisfied with the Soviet regime were sheltered, legalized, created from them legionaries who fought on the side of Hitler, and now they are trying to pose as "chastity." What kind of relationship is possible with such shifters.

      It is one thing to be dissatisfied with the Soviet Government and quite another to commit war crimes. It is one thing to fight, another thing to destroy peaceful people. Something to the Wehrmacht, as such, does not raise special questions (although they are still), unlike the SS units.

    Why do Canadians go so far? They would be well advised by former Foreign Minister Christa Freeland.
    Maternal grandfather Mikhail Khomyak actively collaborated with the Nazis and was the editor-in-chief of the collaborationist Ukrainian-language newspaper Krakivsky Visti (English) Russian [10], which glorified Adolf Hitler, the Wehrmacht and the SS, conducted anti-Semitic, anti-Polish and anti-Soviet propaganda

    Hope that we will not be able to provide enough complete lists. Further. To convince us that many are no longer alive. The rest will be tinkered with, demanding from us the FAST evidence of their crimes. Because it is simple to be registered in the SS and to commit atrocities .... And to get lost in these legal swamps until the end of the century. It is known, after all, that lawyers can lead any simple matter into a dead end.
    Silence and patronage smells foul. After all, they were accepted by the thousands right after the war, saving them from the Bolshevik massacre.

    Do we not have such structures? There is. But you need to impose in their duties some more functions to the existing ones. Changes to the Constitution, about the supremacy of national laws over hell knows what, we will accept. It's good. And on the basis of the priority of OUR laws, it will be possible to catch trash all over the world, transport it to Russia and judge. There are examples of this. Can't you see how different shit boils from these intentions?

    As if earlier the government of the meriticos, and Canada did not know about permanent residence of Nazis of all stripes with them. It turns out they (Natsik) lived secretly? bully Who will believe this ?! Turn on the thing bag, and think it will give them a ride!
