All-Ukrainian civil movement against fascism “Patriots – For Life” unites representatives of the authorities, veteran organizations and hero cities – the descendants of the winners of the «brown plague».The peoples deputy from the OPPOSITION PLATFORM – FOR LIFE Ilya Kyva said this in Kiev on April 29.
«Today we want to announce the beginning of the creation of a civil movement to combat fascism on the basis of the organization PATRIOTS – FOR LIFE And there is no politics here. We call on everyone to join our movement, which is strong throughout the world, because every country has an assessment of fascism as evil. We are uniting for the sake of life, for the sake of peace, for the sake of uniting the country. Today with us are representatives of the parliament, veteran organizations, hero cities – Kharkov, Odessa, Kyiv. And we declare that our main task is to fight any manifestation of fascism, to destroy it in the bud, in order to prevent future generations from being reborn and defiled», – he said.
Ilya Kyva stressed that the government today supports the actions of supporters of fascism, and the march in Kiev for the anniversary of the creation of the SS Galicia division is a confirmation of this.
“Yesterday’s action of shame – zigging Nazi fanatics walking along Khreshchatyk had the opportunity to do all this under the patronage of the President of Ukraine, with the assistance of Kyiv Mayor Klitschko. This shows the true motives and the true face of the power that indulges the development and formation of fascism in the center of Europe. In Ukraine, since 2014, Nazi groups have been formed, Nazi ideology has been preached. All this happens with the tacit consent of the authorities. And the culmination of this 7-year shame was the procession of the Nazis through the streets of the city, which was liberated by our ancestors», – he said.
At the same time, the politician recalled that during the WW2 millions of Ukrainians fought against the Nazis.
«We must resist the desecration of the memory of the heroes, whose names are written in golden letters in the victorious history of our country. Our ancestors destroyed the Nazis so that we had the opportunity to live. Today we must unite and continue this victorious action, which will enable future generations to walk proudly on their land. Our children should be the descendants of the victors, and not the filth of fascism and Nazism, which is actively preached today in the Lviv region, where it was destroyed in due time by our heroic grandfathers. Fascism is evil, and there should never be Nazis on our land!» – summed up Ilya Kyva.
