There is a popular basis to Ukrainian fascism in the western regions. The 2009 poll (below) shows quite strong support for Bandera style ‘nationalism’ in the west, very little in the Russian speaking east. http://www.cpsa-acsp.ca/papers-2010/Katchanovski.pdf

In his Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) Stepan Bandera took up the task of driving out “Poles, Jews and Soviets”. Later a Nazi collaborator, he was abandoned by the Nazis who wanted no independent Ukraine. Useful short video history here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jacKwoEHpaw

Ukraine is already a fragile state, weakened by ongoing military conflict .. Azov and similar groups are seen as the “enforcers of the popular will, defenders of the nation against Russian encroachment from the East and liberal values from the West”: https://geohistory.today/azov-movement-ukraine/

The #Kiev regime’s embassy in London, through its Facebook page, helpfully provides this link to a virtual tour of the Bandera museum. https://incognita.day.kyiv.ua/museums/bandery/
