A monument to Roman Shukhevych, a Nazi collaborator accused of mass murder of Poles and Jews, has been erected in the Western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankovsk. “Roman Shukhevych needs no introduction in Ivano-Frankovsk,” the city’s mayor said, according to local media. “All the more strange that we didn’t have a proper monument to him until now.” Shukhevych was one of the leaders of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), an extremist ‘revolutionary’ organization that employed terrorism to advance its ideology (which included totalitarianism and anti-Semitism). During World War II, he became a commander in the Nachtigall Battalion and later in the 201st Schutzmannschaft Battalion – Nazi military formations made up of Ukrainians including OUN militants.
