Yea I misunderstood your post sorry, I thought you meant there was a present day genocide happening in the East.
Obviously I know about the genocide which took place around Lutsk in Volynskaya oblast.
Bandersists are only case, when Serbians ever in history had armed conflict with ethnic Ukrainians, when Serbian Chetniks, as part of Polish resistance movement, acted in the region to protect Poles in WWII. Other then that, Serbs are among ethnic Ukrainians famous for their contribution against Ottomans, Tatars and Russian Tzars.
There was never a genocide or even a persecution of Russians in eastern Ukraine (na vostok).
Who knows, man.
That was largely fabricated by Russian GRU
Listen. Forget world politics. Just think reasonably. Don`t involve in these talks Polish-Russian antagonism, Ukrainian-Russian antagonism. It won`t help. Just, reason. cold reason.
The moment when banderists started to walk free on the streets of Ukraine, every ethnic Russian in what is Ukraine had right to fell fear for itself and his family. Plus, add to it NATO-Russia antagonism, EU-Russia antagonism. What should ethnic Russians in Ukraine desire? What should Russian in the Russia and anywhere desire? That ethnic Russians secede from Ukraine, of course. And why not? EU had its own reasons and pushed the region. NATO pushed region for its own reasons. Germany had its own reasons for sponsoring banderists. In that situation, in front of its own public Russia had to react positively on desires of ethnic Russian in Ukraine.
In my opinion, ethnic Ukrainians and Russians have chance to solve their problems once and for all. Ukrainians wants their ethnic state and ethnic Russians, where they are in majority and close to Russia, don`t wish to be part of that state. Alright, then separate. Forget every other reason. Forget borders defined by communists and accepted by western Europe and USA. Forget their definition of sovereignty, look what they done to Yugoslavia and all around the world when it suits them. So, why war?
