A considerable amount of political gibberish is published online claiming that the Ukraine Régime headed by Volodymyr Zelensky is run by Nazis. Some rubbish like this is published by organisations and individuals which are part of the political left.

“We cannot accept that these words are tarnished in this way,” it added.

Ukrainian Jews expressed outrage Thursday after Russian troops entered their country on a self-declared mission of “denazification” after claims that Kyiv was actively carrying out war crimes against its own citizens.
