The first session of Ukraine’s newly elected Parliament (The Supreme Rada) will take place on December 12. The event will be marked by the presence of 37 members of “Svoboda”, previously known as the “Social National Ukrainian Party”. This was clearly outlined by veteran of Neo-Nazi movement in Ukraine, activist Bohdan Chervak: "With its membership, nationalists in the Ukrainian parliament will covertly represent Eugene Konovalets, Andrew Melnyk, Stepan Bandera, Roman Shukhevych, Oleg Olzhych, Elena Teliga”.
