Canada House Speaker, Rota Apologizes After Cally Ukrainian Veteran Who Fought For The Nazis A Hero

Canada’s House of Commons speaker, Rota has apologized after coming under fire for praising a Ukrainian veteran who fought for the Nazis. 

During Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to the Canadian parliament on Friday, speaker Anthony Rota called 98-year-old veteran Yaroslav Hunka a “hero.”

The Jewish human rights groups, along with The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center were not happy with the development. 

“There should be no confusion that this unit was responsible for the mass murder of innocent civilians with a level of brutality and malice that is unimaginable,” a statement by FSWC reads.

On Sunday, the speaker issued an official apology.

“I have subsequently become aware of more information which causes me to regret my decision,” Rota said. “I particularly want to extend my deepest apologies to Jewish communities in Canada and around the world.”

The opposition party has called for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to apologize and investigate.

The 14th Waffen-SS Grenadier Division, also known as the Galicia Division, was a voluntary unit made up mostly of ethnic Ukrainians under Nazi command.
