On October 8 in the Estonian military museum of a name of the general Laydoner the exhibition "The Ukrainian insurgent army opened. History oppressed". The exhibition consists of more than 500 archival photos and the archival documents placed at the 31-ohm stand, professor Evgen Tsybulenko in the Estonian DELFI edition writes.
Just on the same day the Embassy of the Russian Federation extended a press in the Republic of Estonia - release in connection with exhibition opening. In the statement of Embassy of the Russian Federation it was spoken: "In Russia extremely are negative to everything that is connected with this formation which in the years of World War II not only cooperated with an occupational mode of nazi Germany, having received from it arms and ammunition, but also "became famous" for extreme cruelty in relation to civilians of different nationalities …" and further in the same spirit.
In this regard it is interesting to me, till what time the Embassy of the Russian Federation will duplicate the historical myths created at the time of the USSR by the Soviet intelligence services in the best traditions of gebbelsovsky promotion?
For many Ukrainians of unitary enterprise is a symbol of heroic fight for independence of our Homeland therefore the cynical slander said heroes of our liberation movement, for us is deeply offensive and therefore the Embassy of the Russian Federation has to give the report in the actions.
However, this attack against Ukraine far not the first. In literal sense doesn't pass also day that on the state Russian television or in newspapers once again didn't slander Banderovites. After all it is a question of the bald and cynical lie, two which main theses were developed in the USSR and are reduced to the following - Banderovites were at war on the party of fascist Germany and Banderovites exterminated civilians, including women and children.
So was actually? The first weeks of war Banderovites really cooperated with Germans, and nobody hides it. I will notice only that the USSR prior to war too cooperated with Hitlerite Germany, and much more actively and much more long.Stalin sent to Hitler congratulations on a capture of Paris, the USSR occupied with Germany on couple Poland, carried out the German military ships on the Northern Sea Route to the Pacific Ocean, supplied Germany with strategic raw materials - the list can be continued long.
Banderovites too very quickly distinguished anti-human essence of a Hitlerite mode and, as well as forest brothers in the Baltic States, began to be at war for independence of the country both with German, and with the Soviet armies. I will bring for an example of steam of episodes. On March 10, 1943 one hundred unitary enterprise carried out successful approach to the strengthened positions of Germans in the village to Orzheva. Losses of Germans - 60 people the killed and wounded. On March 20, 1943 the division of unitary enterprise crushed a prisoner-of-war camp in Lutsk and released all prisoners.
That is characteristic, Stepan of Bander almost all war stayed in the German concentration camp Zaksenkhauzen, and two his brothers Oleksa and Vasily were sent to Auschwitz where both were lost in 1942. About what it is possible to speak?
Now we will talk about the second part of the myth about "atrocities of Banderovites". Most of all questions arises at Poles, however they, unlike Russia, don't fall into hysteria, and together with the Ukrainian historians conduct systematic work on truth establishment. In too it is a high time in the Russia try to distract the international public from condemnation of crimes of the People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs which employees, despite the crimes, are built in a framework of heroes.
If the Russian Federation so worries about historical justice why it actually completely closed the archives and allows there only court borzopisets like Dyukov? The answer simple - is what to hide.
As the declassified documents of SBU on activity of the Soviet bodies of state security in the territory of Ukraine during the post-war period testify, the numerous well prepared task forces of staff of the People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs disguised as a form of unitary enterprise were sent to areas of activity of unitary enterprise, owning a local dialect and knowing local traditions, including consisting of Kovpak's former red guerrillas. Task forces worked under the guise of groups of unitary enterprise and were called by atrocities in relation to the civilian population to provide blasting a social base of insurgents and to discredit their stated purpose - "national release of the Ukrainian people". As of June, 1945 in the western areas under the guise of groups of unitary enterprise 156 task forces of People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs numbering 1783 persons worked.
Therefore I urge all to visit an exhibition and to make own idea of the events, instead of to continue to live in the world of old Soviet myths.
