Ukrainian parliament to debate legalization of OUN-UPA October 14

The draft law suggested recognizing OUN-UPA (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists — Ukrainian Insurgent Army) members as “freedom fighters,” Svoboda party leader Oleh Tyahnibok says

During the years of his presidency Viktor Yushchenko rehabilitated UPA veterans and conferred posthumously the title of Hero of Ukraine to UPA commander Roman Shukhevich.

Yushchenko also awarded the title of Hero of Ukraine to Stepan Bandera, leader of the Ukrainian nationalist and independence movement, posthumously in 2010.

However, under President Viktor Yanukovych, Ukrainian courts stripped Bandera of the title.
