Ukrainian Nazis marched in Odessa (above) on January 1 to celebrate the birthday of their hero Stepan Bandera. During Hitler's invasion of the former Soviet Union during WW II Bandera put on a Nazi uniform and joined forces with the German Army in their onslaughts.
Today many of those being trained in western Ukraine by the US Army are the 'volunteer battallions' of these Bandera forces who have been leading the war against fellow Ukrainian citizens living in the eastern part of the country (Donbass) near the Russian border.
One of the popular slogans of Bandera forces is "Russians on knives".
Similar marches also took place in Kiev, Lvov, Dnepropetrovsk and other Ukrainian cities. Across the 'democratic west' these events were not reported in the mainstream media.
