#Commentary of Valery Skorokhodov regarding introduction of responsibility for glorification of collaboration and Nazism
The People’s Council passed a draft law providing for administrative and criminal liability for the rehabilitation and glorification of Nazism in first reading. Deputy of the DPR People’s Council Valery Skorokhodov told about this in an interview with RIA Novosti.
“We are adopting a bill banning the rehabilitation, glorification of Nazism and collaboration, as well as everything related to any units of the UPA, OUN and others and their symbols in the first reading.
If 30 years ago in Ukraine it was forbidden and punishable by law, now there would be no glorification of Bandera. In order to protect our Republic from something similar in the future, we adopt the aforementioned bill,” Valery Skorokhodov told reporters.
We shall recall that in May 2015, the then President of Ukraine Pyotr Poroshenko gave the OUN-UPA the status of “fighters for the independence” of Ukraine, and its members were entitled to social security.
