Twitter users criticized Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for his decision to postpone the celebration of Victory Day over Nazism to May 8.
Earlier, Zelensky wrote on his Twitter page: “I submitted a bill to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with a proposal to declare May 8 the Day of Remembrance and Victory over Nazism in the Second World War of 1939-1945… Glory to all those who fought against Nazism and won. Glory to all Our heroes of different times, to whom we equally owe our lives!”
Ukrainian director Igor Lopatyuk commented on Zelensky’s tweet: “We are seeing in this post – Nazis, Nazism and Ukraine. Not a word about the role of the Red Army or the Soviet Union. now you are establishing Nazism in Ukraine. We celebrate this holiday on May 9, not May 8, and have never celebrated it on this day.”
For his part, the user under the nickname “Mania Said” wrote: “Now stop, clown.”
Dennis Lane asked sarcastically, “What did the Nazi say?”
“You are a coward and a disgrace to the whole world,” GokudoKat added.
“Let the Russians save us from neo-Nazis,” Norris continued.
“My name is Zelensky,” Tikhon joked, “and I am falsifying history.”
Earlier, Zelensky announced May 9 as Europe Day in Ukraine. The decree, published on the website of his department, said that this decision was made “in order to strengthen the unity of the peoples of Europe”, as well as to ensure peace, security and stability on the European continent.
