The main pro-Kremlin propaganda website, RIA Novosti, published an article about what the Russian Federation wants to do with Ukraine. Among other things, the Russian occupiers want to re-educate the Ukrainian people, set up strict censorship in politics, culture and education. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has already said that the article will serve as one of the evidence for the upcoming tribunal against Russian war criminals.
Further verbatim: “There must be a total lustration. Any organizations that have associated themselves with the practice of Nazism have been liquidated and banned. However, in addition to the top, a significant part of the masses, which are passive Nazis, are thus accomplices of Nazism, and are also guilty. They supported and indulged Nazi power.
The just punishment of this part of the population is possible only as bearing the inevitable hardships of a just war against the Nazi system, waged as carefully and prudently as possible in relation to civilians.
Further denazification of this part of the population consists in re-education, which is achieved by ideological repression (suppression) of Nazi attitudes and strict censorship: not only in the political sphere, but also necessarily in the sphere of culture and education.”
As the author of an article and a poster about the “three varieties of Ukrainians”, Nazi Timofey Sergeytsev, writes, “denazification will inevitably also be de-Ukrainization – a rejection of the large-scale artificial inflating of the ethnic component of self-identification of the population of the territories of historical Little Russia and Novorossia, begun by the Soviet authorities.” As noted there, denazification of Ukraine is also its inevitable de-Europeanization.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has already commented on the publication, noting during an online speech before the Romanian Parliament that the article will serve as one of the evidence for the upcoming tribunal against Russian war criminals.
At the same time, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics called the material “ordinary fascism” on his Twitter account.
