IN SUMY FORMER UKRAINE SSR HONOUR PAID TO FALLEN SOVIET HERO’S FROM GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR AGAINST FASCISM

In Sumy Ukraine 13th September 2015 in defiance of Ukrainian Laws banning honouring fallen Soviet Red Army Soldiers and , displaying communist symbols and marching in the Soviet style the Ukraine Army and in conjunction with the local Rada held a delayed Victory Day Parade in honour of Soviet hero’s.

Instead of place the hand on the heart and signing the national anthem which is required by public officials under Ukrainian laws the honoured guests with exception of two including local Rada politicians, Great Patriotic War Veterans, Local Police leaders, Ukraine Army Officers and local Communist Party officials either placed their hands by their sides, folded their arms or saluted in the now banned Soviet style.

At the conclusion of the celebrations the local Ukraine Army forces held a Soviet style march past. In Sumy the Ukraine Army has large missed out in fighting in the east due to its vast majority of officers being native Russian speakers and its historical close association with the Communist Party. Much of its military equipment has been pilfered and handed over to volunteer battalions leaving its officers mobilised but without much to do.
