Trudeau Bemoans 'Russian Propaganda' Amid Backlash for Celebrating Ukrainian Nazi Veteran
Canada's House Speaker is apologizing for celebrating a 98-year-old Nazi veteran as a "Ukrainian hero" who "fought the Russians," during Zelensky's visit to Parliament.
Anyone who has paid attention to history knows who was "fighting the Russians" during WW2, but the fact that Yaroslav Hunka fought for the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS, which was responsible for the slaughter of millions of innocent people, was conveniently left out of his tribute.
While Trudeau admits this is "embarrassing" for Canada, he quickly jumped to reminding the world to watch out for the dangers of Russian propaganda. Yes, really.
