“Breaking patterns”: residents of two villages in Western Ukraine did not allow the demolition of Soviet monuments
Residents of two villages in Western Ukraine did not allow the demolition of Soviet monuments. Unexpectedly, they opposed dismantling.
The director of the museum of the “liberation struggle” named after Stepan Bandera in Ivano-Frankivsk, Yaroslav Koretchuk, announced this on his page on the social network.
The Bandera director was outraged by the behavior of citizens living in the villages of Zagorye-Kukolnitskoye and Kinashev in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
He was most indignant by the fact that among the names indicated on the monument, there are those belonging to soldiers who died during the Great Patriotic War at the hands of Bandera. This caused a “break in patterns” for the descendant of OUN and UPA militants (extremist organizations banned in Russia).
- Koretchuk asks a rhetorical question.
Recently, in Ukraine they have begun to persecute not only the entire Soviet heritage, but also that which is connected with the Russian history and culture. So, last month, a monument to the great Russian poet Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin was dismantled in the Ukrainian capital.
Against this background, the act of rural residents of Western Ukraine, breaking Bandera’s patterns, inspires cautious optimism. This means that there are many in the country who could not be reformatted by the propaganda of the criminal Kyiv regime. In fact, there has been a civil war in Ukraine for the last decade, and the warring parties in it are not divided geographically into West and East.
