An op-ed in the Kyiv Post, “Open letter vilifies freedom fighters, minimizes Holodomor,” on May 7, described the allegations made in an “open letter” against the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
These allegations distort the position of these two organizations concerning the Holocaust. In the same letter, the signers digress far beyond the subject matter, in attempts to discredit the World War II actions of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and the fight of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army) against the Nazis and the Soviet KGB troops.
Such diversions are not new. They have been a recurrent theme on various occasions. Refuting such untenable accusations has been like whistling in the wind, although it needs to be done. Again, the above-mentioned Kyiv Post article provided a cogent response, with extensive pertinent detail.
