Another source

In addition to the sources in the previous post, I recently received this useful link on the revival and whitewashing of Ukrainian nationalism from a friend today.  Do yourself a favor and read it.  It’s also worth noting the similarity between Ukraine’s far right and that of Russia, including groups with ties to the government.  The text recounts an example of far-right suppression of sexual minorities, something for which Russia is openly and repeatedly called to task for, yet which is never mentioned when it comes to Ukraine.  The double standards and the similarity between Russian and Ukrainian nationalists is something embarrassing to all parties in this conflict.
