Canadian House of Commons Speaker Anthony Rota resigned on Tuesday after receiving heavy criticism for hosting a Ukrainian veteran who fought in a Nazi battalion during WWII.
Calls for Rota’s resignation began after he invited and hosted Yaroslav Hunka, a 98-year-old veteran who fought in the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the Nazi SS during the Third Reich, in the House of Commons during Ukrainian President Vlodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to Canada on Friday. Hunka received thunderous applause from Rota, Zelenskyy, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canada’s Parliament; only later was it discovered that Hunka was a former Nazi soldier.
