Ihor Fedorovich Malitsky is a former prisoner of Auschwitz concentration camps. Today, he is Head of the Kharkiv Regional Council of Anti-Fascist Resistance that brings together former prisoners of Nazi concentration camps. He takes an active part in educating young people. He also works as a professor at the Ukrainian Engineering and Pedagogical Academy. Mr. Malitsky mastered the computer when he was 80 years old, and now he is developing his own educational manuals.

Former prisoner of Auschwitz concentration camp, 92-year-old professor at the Ukrainian Engineering and Pedagogical Academy Ihor Malitsky recently rebuked a separatist who insulted Ukraine and Ukrainians in a Kharkiv café.

“Today, I went to the local market to buy some cucumbers for pickling. Then, I decided to have a beer in a nearby café. I sit down and see a man somewhat “under the weather” hanging around nearby and muttering something about serving as an officer.

Then he comes up to me, probably looking for support and a friendly ear… and announces loudly:

“Ukraine’s not a country, and Ukrainians are just shit! Putin’s gonna beat you all. Putin’s a great man, and so on and so on.

You know, if I’d had a pellet gun, I’d have pumped him full of holes! That’s what I’d have done!”

Malitsky then picked up his mobile and said loudly:

“Comrade Colonel, send over some guys to such-and-such an address. There’s a Putin lover here who needs to have his ass kicked. You can take him to the border and dump him there. Let him kiss his idol’s butt… It’s about a three minutes’ walk… OK, I’ll be waiting.

You should’ve seen him jump up and run! He missed the door and slammed into the wall, got up and ran off as fast as he could. The waitress split her sides laughing, and another man nearby smiled widely. I turned to him and said:

“Hey there, if someone abused your wife or mother, would you keep quiet?”

“No.” he replied, “Let me walk you home so he doesn’t bother you again.”

“Thanks a lot, but I can take care of myself.”
