Bandera’s Joan of Arc: What Kind of Heroine Does Modern Neo-Nazism Attract? By Vladimir Malyshev (Владимир Малышев)

The publication in the magazine caused a scandal in the media (and on the Internet) after the exposure of the American pianist – originally from Kyiv – Valentina Lisitsa (Валентины Лисицы). She drew attention to the fact that Victoria Zaveruha, in her messages and photographs on the network – showed an open sympathy toward radical nationalism (Neo-Nazism) and called for the destruction of all ethnic Russians living in Ukraine! In one of the photographs published on the Internet, Zaveruha raises her hand in a Nazi salute! On the other, she is depicted in a military uniform, holding a grenade launcher in her hands, on which is written in Cyrillic “Death to the Orthodox” with a felt-tip pen! On a third, against the backdrop of the building of the Lugansk Thermal Power Plant, she unfurls the red and black flag of the “Right Sector” *. On the fourth – she is posing with a weapon against the background comprising of a swastika flag.
