Hundreds March In Kyiv Honoring Controversial Nationalist Leader

KYIV — Hundreds of Ukrainian nationalists marched through downtown Kyiv in a torchlight parade to mark the birthday of the controversial partisan wartime leader Stepan Bandera.

The January 1 march to commemorate the birth of Bandera included an estimated 1,000 participants who hailed him as a hero.

A nationalist who led an insurgent army during World War II, Bandera is seen by many Ukrainians as a freedom fighter.

In Russia, however, he is seen as a traitor to the Soviet Union who collaborated with the Nazis.

Ukrainian police said the march ended peacefully and there were no arrests.
