The name of Bandera is still a matter of great controversy.
The assertion that the process of de-communization in Ukraine is changing for the glorification of the OUN leader Stepan Bandera is not true.
This was stated by the head of the Institute of national memory Vladimir vyatrovich, writes “Apostrophe”.
This is the message of the Kremlin propaganda. In Ukraine renamed 51 493 streets, 34 local governments have appropriated the name of the leader of the nationalists.
“Here in no event it is impossible to talk about some banderizatsii, doing this on purpose to discredit the Council, in order to show that Ukraine still creates an authoritarian or totalitarian regime,” – said the Chairman of the Institute.
The name of Bandera is still causing such controversy, because his figure has become a symbol of the struggle for independence.
“For some, this symbol is the highest value, for which he is willing to forfeit even their lives and for some, this symbol is opposite the largest stimulus. So now during the confrontation with Russia again Bandera becomes a very important character, because he is from Soviet times most powerfully symbolizes the first anti-Soviet and then anti-Russian resistance,” he added.
