EJP Chairman Vadim Rabinovich made a speech at French Senate
On June 21, Vadim Rabinovich spoke in the French Senate at a hearing, where the issue of reviving fascism in Ukraine was discussed.
Ukrainian delegation of parliamentarians headed by EJP Chairman Vadim Rabinovich, co-chairman of the political party “Opposition Platform – For Life” was on a visit to France.
Vadim Rabinovich had meeting at the French Foreign Ministry with Frederic Mondoloni. Director of the Continental Europe Department.
“I heard a lot of interesting things about the position of this key country in Europe.”, – said Mr. Rabinovich.
“It is very important that we are talking about this (fascism), one might say, in the very heart of democracy – in France – the place where democracy was born, in a country that is undoubtedly an ally of Ukraine. We will convey to you what is happening in our country, so that you help Ukraine in the fight against fascism, ”said Vadim Rabinovich.
“I am asked why I came to France and raise the topic of fascism. My answer is simple: if we forget what happened “yesterday”, then the mistakes of the past will return “today.” I am a patriot of my country, I love it and I want Ukraine to remember the past, so that it can live and prosper without fascism. But, unfortunately, today it raises its head, and we have no right to remain silent about this! ”, Vadim Rabinovich emphasized.
He also told that today in Ukraine there are a lot of nationalist and so-called “patriotic” organizations.
“I will share what causes the greatest anger both for me and for all sane people: the revival and exaltation of the SS Galicia division. As you know, it was banned by the Nuremberg Tribunal, but today in Ukraine its members are made heroes! This is problem number one! And that’s why we are here, that’s why we bring you the truth and we want you to help Ukraine in the fight against fascism! ” – summed up Vadim Rabinovich.
