One of the key issues that Russia consistently tries to misinform the world about is the supposed “nazism” of Ukrainians and the far-right powers that were purportedly behind Euromaidan. The little sympathy that Ukrainian society has for far-right political powers was shown in the early presidential elections of 25 May 2014, where less than 2% of Ukrainians voted for far-right candidates. However, in Russia open nazism is quite frequent and even receives support from the government. Moreover, Russian nazis are not only fighting among the ranks of DNR in Ukraine, but are also among the leaders of the separatist “republic.” ICTV channel investigated Russian neo-nazism serving to invade Ukraine as part of the Civic Defense series of documentaries.
