If Ukraine wants to join the European Union, it must stop glorifying people like Stepan Bandera or Roman Shukhevych, as well as those who helped them. Arno Klarsfeld, a lawyer for the Association of Sons and Daughters of Jews Deported from France, said this on BFM TV.
“To become part of the European Union, Ukraine must return to its history and stop glorifying those who collaborated with the Nazis and killed tens of thousands of Jews. exterminated tens of thousands of Jews, declared Klarsfeld.
He noted that he supports Ukraine’s entry into the “European family”, but the EU shares not only economic and legal values, but also moral ones. And you can’t build a monument to the Jews in Babi Yar, who were shot not only by the Nazis, but also by tens of thousands of Ukrainians, and at the same time glorify the latter. If the republic does not take a critical look at its history, according to the human rights activist, it will not have a place in Europe on legal grounds.
