Ukraine: Lvov march honours Nazi volunteers

Members and supporters of the Svoboda party joined a march in Lvov on Sunday commemoration of the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS, initially formed from Ukrainian volunteer fighters with the Nazi army.

Right-wing nationalist groups including the Right Sector party have declined to take part in the march.

The division, which was formed in 1943, became part of the Ukrainian National Army after the retreat of Nazi forces from Ukraine, before surrendering to Allied forces on May 10 1945. The division has been accused of carrying out numerous atrocities, including the destruction of Polish communities in Western Ukraine and massacring civilians during "anti-guerrilla" actions.
