Soldiers With SS Symbols Advertised by President of Ukraine

Official site of the pro-Western president of Ukraine and oligarch Petro Poroshenko published photos of Ukrainian paratroopers with symbol of SS division Totenkopf on their uniforms. Panzerdivision Totenkopf was recruited from guards of Nazi concentration camps, so called SS-Totenkopfverbande. Division distinguished itself by numerous war crimes committed during WWII. Most notably execution of British prisoners of war during Battle of France at the village of Le Paradis, massacres of civilians in Poland and Soviet Union and suppression of Polish Warsaw Uprising.

Photos are from address Petro Poroshenko gave these soldiers in Zhytomyr on 6 December 2018.

Ukrainian officials, including president Poroshenko still deny that neo-Nazism is rampant in Ukraine, including it's armed forces and police and that regime relies on nao-Nazi organizations like Azov battalion, S14 or Right Sector for suppressing political opposition as well as fighting civil war in Donbas.
