Neo-Nazi Azov Battalion took on Russian troops in Mariupol, and they are seen as heroes.
If someone tried to invade my homeland and it happened to be a neo-Nazi group that defended my homeland, am I supposed to overlook their ideology which I am utterly against and be grateful? I will struggle to accept such double standard.
Stalin starved and killed millions of Ukrainians before world war ll. You can’t really blame them for welcoming the Nazi’s when they invaded and had the Nazi’s treated them decently they would likely have had a great ally in their war against Russia. However the Nazi’s squandered that opportunity and killed many Ukrainians themselves. Then when Russia took over the country again they killed many Ukrainians for collaborating with the Nazi’s. You can’t blame them for not liking the Russians and I wish them the best of luck in their fight against them.
