Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany Andrie Melik has previously shook up, saying there is “zero evidence” that nationalist Stepan Bandera and his army killed thousands of Jews during the Holocaust. rice field.

The Israeli Embassy in Germany has accused Ukrainian ambassador Andrie Melik of his recent remarks on Stepan Bandera’s role in the genocide of Jews during the Holocaust.

“The Ukrainian ambassador’s remarks are a distortion of historical facts, a trivial matter of the Holocaust, and an insult to those killed by Bandera and his people,” the embassy tweeted.

Melnyk said, “Not only does it undermine the values ​​we all value and believe in, but it also undermines the courageous struggle of the Ukrainians to live in peace with democratic values,” the diplomatic mission said. Continued.

Earlier this week, Melnyk claimed in an interview with Jung & Naiv during the Holocaust that there was “zero evidence” to support the fact that Bandera’s army slaughtered Jews. German journalists have provided multiple arguments to support this point, especially in spreading a leaflet to Lviv calling on Melnik to destroy “Moscovi, Poles, Hungarians, Jews” by Bandera. Reminded me.

“I don’t understand how anyone can call a Jewish and Polish mass slaughterer a hero,” said one journalist.

However, Bandera refused to stay away from supporting Bandera, claiming that the infamous Ukrainian nationalists were “not mass slaughterers.”

The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs quickly moved away from Melnick’s remarks. Nonetheless, this statement has sparked a massive backlash, including Poland and Germany. However, the two countries quickly reflected Kieu’s swift note that Melnick merely expressed his “personal opinion” rather than the official position of Ukraine.

Why is the West silent about the Ukrainian neo-Nazi movement, the Azov Regiment, and the Bandera Legacy?

This is not the first time that Bandera has been soaked in hot water for praising Bandera, one of the Ukrainian nationalist thinkers. The Ukrainian ambassador has visited Bandera’s tomb in Munich and other places related to the infamous leader many times.
