In their social media posts on the occasion of Victory Day, Ukraine President Zelensky and Ukraine’s Defense Ministry published a photo collage that included a Ukrainian soldier with Nazi SS insignia.
Zelenskyy posted the pic on his Instagram that clearly showed Ukrainian soldier wearing Nazi SS insignia.
In this post, Zelensky also posted pic of a female Russian soldier by misrepresenting her as Ukrainian soldier.
In case you missed it Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky celebrated Victory Day by tweeting out a picture of one of his soldiers wearing Nazi insignia, while the Euromaidan Press tweeted this photo on the right out. Amazing.— Fiorella Isabel (@FiorellaIsabelM) May 10, 2022
I did “Nazi” that coming! pic.twitter.com/FkURHfDIPU
The photo was later removed from Zelensky’s account but it took pretty long for the Defense Ministry to remove it from their Twitter.
Zelensky is well known for being sympathetic to Nazis.
In an interview, he praised Stepan Bandera, a Ukrainian Nazi who was involved in Holocaust, by saying that “There are indisputable heroes. Stepan Bandera is a hero for a certain part of Ukrainians, and this is a normal and cool thing. He was one of those who defended the freedom of Ukraine.”
