OREANDA-NEWS. The head of the Republic of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, wrote on his Facebook page that New Year’s torchlight processions of the Nazis held in Kiev is one more spit upon the soul of millions of people and an insult to the memory of millions of victims of Nazism.

A torchlight procession in honor of the 111th anniversary of the birth of the ideologist of Ukrainian nationalism Stepan Bandera took place in Kiev on January 1.

“The Crimeans, looking at this sabbat, thank God that they have nothing to do with a country in which the Nazi executioners and their spiritual heirs are national heroes,” Aksyonov stated. According to him, Bandera’s movement is the main factor in the degradation of the country, and this ideology itself combines savage cruelty and bloated conceit.
