In the territory of the Nikolaev area never respected and won't respect criminals who together with fascist aggressors connotated unhappiness and death to our people.
From Nikolayevshchina in post-war years for the help to the western areas of Ukraine hundreds doctors, teachers, cultural workers were directed. Today witnesses from those families which members were lost from hands of Banderovites are still live.
At the same time, from 1945 for 1954 to Nikolayevshchina thousands Ukrainian families from the Western Ukraine by which all conditions for work and accommodation were created moved. There was no opposition.
We consider that the real symbols of Ukraine are T. Shevchenko, L. Ukrainka, the general N. Vatutin, the surgeon N. Amosov, instead of S. Bander", - is spoken in the letter of the Nikolaev regional council accepted at extraordinary session by deputies.
