    Well, we already understand that Bendery’s enemies.
    Whom we want to convince.
    Here, for example, are the Poles. They then well know what Bendera did to them. So what. Camps of the Right Sector in Poland are still active.
    The US published documents are unlikely to convince.
    We need to learn how to influence a foreign man in the street. That they read and believe - yes it was.
    That this is not "the hand of Moscow" and not a fake. That's what's important.

        And my deceased grandfather fought on the Volkhov front, where he remained forever, and what now - I, you, I am a Nazi muzzle? this is all that is happening now, the West needs to embroil us, preferably with a war, so that they destroy each other, and then the "peacekeepers" will appear ... But in general, in all conscience, these "peacekeepers" should be extinguished FIRST, maybe then the Slavs will live normally ...

        Dear Siberian! I put you +, but I am Ukrainian, and do not say that the Ukrainian nation was created artificially. And those UKRAINIANS who fought for the Russian Empire, for the USSR, what, does not count? EVERY THIRD RKKA fighter was Ukrainian, and together we broke the ridge of fascism. An example is my grandfather (Ukrainian). He fought from the 41st to the 45th, and then until the 48th instead of a well-deserved demolition, Bender fished for the forests ... And 3 brothers did not return from the war, and then an artificially created nation ...

          Well, in general, a Ukrainian is the same nationality as a Siberian in Siberia, Ukraine is an artificial formation and the Ukrainian people are the same Russians, only in profile. Even the name itself says "at the edge of Russia". And the fact that you are natives of the Ukrainian SSR fought in the Second World War, so no one argues with that.

      There are still people in the vastness of our former USSR. who should read it.
      A Kazakhstani under the nickname Beck, with user, proves to us that this is propaganda. But Bandera is white and fluffy, who fought both with Russia and the Germans, for the liberation of his independence. And Bandera did not burn the people we live (old people. Children and women).
      And like real warriors, they fought only with troops. There was no Volyn massacre, Katyn, etc. etc. And there are people who believe him. In the comments on an article about the Kazakhstan army, he boasted that he had gathered as many as 200 pluses. praising and whitewashing the current Bandera followers in Ukraine.

      This had to be done immediately after the end of World War II. With public condemnation and compensation from the Ukrainians to all the peoples to whom they have harmed.

            . One lives in Odessa, one in Kharkov, one near Kiev.

            You have just listed three regions of Ukraine where there are three different-polar points of view on everything that happens. So. Kharkiv is the city closest in spirit and mentality to Russia, there is nothing to say! Kiev is the Mother of Russian cities (...), it’s more fun here: you don’t know anything there in Russia, you don’t understand anything here, we have rEvolution! Zombies are still the same ... Odessa Mama! A complete "clinic" is exclusively your own, purely individual path of development. Was here on our website "Marshal" under the nickname "Akim" (something has not been seen for a long time), apparently from Odessa, a month ago he spoke about the special path of Odessa and the region, a kind of free port city, absolutely from no one independent city! At first I did not believe him, and on you, I talked with a classmate from Odessa and everything was confirmed! But the whole joke is that for Kiev, Odessa and Central Ukraine, the Russians with Putin at the head are to blame for everything! In the East of Ukraine, too, not everything is clear, there at least 75% of the population in Russia sees a savior!

These banderlogs are already accusing us of a famine in the western regions of Ukraine, they don’t care that it was Poland then, it’s only they who are to blame! am And also in the famine of 1946, when the remnants of the UPA burned the fields, shot those who went out to process these fields, robbed food trains ... They were also to blame for this! am And of course, the 1933 crop failure was also organized by me * ska * whether !!!

    In my experience of personal communication with svidomites (Ukrainians adhering to the theory of the heroes of Bandera, Shukhevych and other bastards) they do not need any documents. It's like faith. Accepted without proof. Documents from the archives of the RF Ministry of Defense are a KGB forgery. The documents from the archives of the Bundeswehr are a Stasi forgery. The testimonies of the Banderaites from Canada are nonsense of the zaprodants ... Well, further in the same spirit :(

    Yes, my grandfather, on my father's side, went through the whole war as a tanker, fought on the Kursk Bulge, reached Berlin, twice burned in a tank. And after the end of the war for FOUR MORE YEARS he fought with BANDER. It seems like the war ended, and they were smoked out of the forests for a long time! How many more men have already died at their hands in "peacetime". My grandfather is Ukrainian in the village of Odessa region and has lived all his life.

      The whole difference is that in Russia traitors, Vlasovites from the ROA are considered criminals, in contrast to Ukraine, where they (Hitler’s henchmen) erect monuments to them, I consider them to be national heroes, and shout Glory to the Heroes, i.e. Bandera-punitive ..................... As they say, feel the difference !!!!!!!!!!!!!! And Glory to the real heroes of the war, both Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Georgians, etc. ............. will remain for centuries! ..............

      Yes, ordinary Ukrainians are not to blame, just by personal example I know that even difficult Ukrainians (educated, historians of the Ridny region, newspaper editors) supported the Maydanuts. I personally understand the "resentment" of Maskaul against the Ukrainian, to whom NATO and GEYROP suddenly became closer and dearer to their relatives.

    Everyone got us these rascals.
    And this is probably not all that we have.
    Many, many bales of these documents.
    Ukrainian mothers, grandmothers and girls,
    how do you sleep with such a dowry.
    You have to pay for everything. FOR ALL!!!!!!

    This is a good answer! It is with such news that Ukraine should be cast. Together with the loss of income, the increase in prices for everything and other joys invented by the new authorities, such information will be sobering for hotheads. Someone will think about it.

    Previously, it was necessary to declassify, and not put it in print, but throughout Ukraine.

    ) pay attention to documents 42g. prisoners and deserters of Ukrainian nationality and in what quantity! and if declassified for 41g! maybe one of the reasons for our retreat at the beginning of the war lies in the mass desertion and the surrender of dill! Isn't that why they classified the information so as not to violate the "friendship of peoples".

    The US published documents are unlikely to convince.



    After the war, all the UPA lists from the Germans fell to the Americans and they oversaw them all the post-war period. This is their brainchild now.

    There are still people in the vastness of our former USSR. who should read it.
    A Kazakhstani under the nickname Beck, with user, proves to us that this is propaganda. But Bandera is white and fluffy, who fought both with Russia and the Germans, for the liberation of his independence. And Bandera did not burn the people we live (old people. Children and women).
    And like real warriors, they fought only with troops. There was no Volyn massacre, Katyn, etc. etc. And there are people who believe him. In the comments on an article about the Kazakhstan army, he boasted that he had gathered as many as 200 pluses. praising and whitewashing the current Bandera followers in Ukraine.

    Believe me, it’s just a Troll who doesn’t see beyond its nose, but in Kazakhstan many people know about the atrocities of Bandera and who they are this is an isolated case

    Will it read a lot to people? We already knew this. They don’t want to know it.
    The people soured for almost 100 years without a war, relaxed, lost landmarks. Nobody represents from the mass of inhabitants as it happens in a war. What is not to eat and not sleep for at least a week, on a full stomach, lying on the couch for all FSUs. They not only rally the hardships, but also clean the brain for a long time.
    Like my grandfather (who had gone through the entire Great Patriotic War) and at the age of 75, the criteria of black and white did not mix and no propaganda would convince. Well, great-grandchildren already just go with the flow and don’t really want to delve into anything. Here they most likely will have to fight with their foreheads since there are no guidelines.
