German Foreign Ministry commented on the march in honor of Bandera in Kiev

The spokesman for the German Foreign Ministry said that the German government condemns the glorification of Bandera’s crimes.

German Foreign Ministry spokesman Christopher Burger said at a briefing in Berlin that the German Cabinet is against the glorification of Nazi crimes in any form.

He made the statement in response to a question about a march to celebrate Stepan Bandera’s birthday in Kyiv on January 1.

“The federal government condemns any form of anti-Semitism, any glorification of Nazi crimes,” Burger said.

In this context, he added, Berlin also condemns crimes committed “including those under Bandera’s leadership”.

“It must be remembered that a large part of these crimes was committed in collaboration with the German occupation forces,” the spokesman said.
