"Priest" of OCU receives SS "Galicia" award
Sergei Tkachuk, known for his statements about his participation in two assaults of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, was awarded the "Knight's Cross of the Division".
The awarding ceremony took place on August 2 in the capital's church of the OCU in honor of St. Nicholas.
The "Knight's Cross of the Division" was presented to Tkachuk by Andriy Medvedko, a Ukrainian nationalist, a member of the ultra-right organization "S14" and one of the alleged killers of Oles Buzina. In April of this year, he organized a march in honor of the SS Galician Division in Kyiv.
Sergei Tkachuk thanked for such a "very high honor" he was conferred.
He also said that the UPA and the Nazi Division "Galicia" were closely related to each other. So, in a commentary under the post “priest” of the OCU wrote that “many of those who were in the UPA were also members of the Division (SS “Galicia” – Ed.).
Earlier, the UOJ wrote that the "priest" of the OCU canonized the members of the Nazi SS Division "Galicia".
