UNITED NATIONS, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's Ambassador to the United Nations Yuriy Sergeyev on Monday has publicly justified Ukrainian nationalists, saying the charges brought by the Soviet Union against them at the Nuremberg trial were fabricated.
"The Russian-Soviet side at the time tried to press the Western allies to declare Bandera movement members and others murderers. The Nuremberg trial did not declare it. Why? Because the facts were falsified and the Soviet Union's position at the time was unjust," the diplomat told reporters.
Sergeyev asked not to generalize the picture of present Ukraine and not to suppose all its residents in western regions were nationalists and Bandera followers. "Millions of Ukrainians in the west are normal European citizens," he stressed, saying the same about the Svoboda (Freedom) party, which is believed to be ultra-right.
