Anton Gerashchenko shared footage of a female soldier he met wearing a swastika-like symbol
Ukraine Interior Ministry adviser Anton Gerashchenko has shared footage of a Ukrainian female soldier, bearing a swastika-like symbol.
The soldier, who apparently returned from the frontlines of the ongoing conflict with Russia, is seen reunited with her daughter and is giving her toy unicorns. Amid the emotional reunion, a swastika-style patch – a rounded solar cross with additional elements – can be clearly seen on the woman’s backpack. Similar emblems were used by several Waffen-SS units in Nazi Germany during WW2.
“This is what we are fighting for,” Gerashchenko captioned the video.

While Moscow has repeatedly outlined the need to “denazify” Ukraine, Kiev has consistently denied having any neo-Nazi elements in the country’s society and military.
Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered protocols were designed to give the regions special status within the Ukrainian state.
The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
RT (Russia Today) is a state-owned news organization funded by the Russian government. The information provided by this news source is being included by the Libertarian Hub not as an endorsement of the Russian government, but rather because it is being actively censored by Big Tech, Western governments and the corporate press. During times of conflict it is imperative that we have access to both sides of the story so we can form our own opinions, even if both sides are spewing their own propaganda. The censorship of RT, despite likely being a propaganda outfit for the Russian government, reduces our ability to hear one side of the conflict.
