Interview on RT.com from Belgrade with political analysis Aleksandr Pavic on April 9, 2015.
The Ukrainian Rada has passed a law that officially recognizes Ukrainian nationalists who collaborated with Nazis in the 20th century as ‘freedom fighters’. Members of several official, underground and paramilitary groups, including the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and Ukrainian Insurgent Army, operated from 1917 till 1991. They fought ‘for the country’s independence,’ and are now granted social benefits by the new law. RT talks to political analyst Alexander Pavic.
