Ukrainian ultra-nationalists marched in the center of the western city of Lviv on April 28, 2013 to mark the 70th anniversary of the 14th SS-Volunteer Division "Galician" foundation. The 14th Waffen Grenadier Division was a World War II German military formation initially made up of volunteers from the region of Galicia with a Ukrainian ethnic background, but later also incorporated Slovaks, Czechs and Dutch volunteers and officers. Neo-nazis from Russia and Lithuania also took part in the march.
