In the photo, Zelensky shows a clenched fist in salute toward the crowd, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stands nearby. The photo has the following title: “Zelensky and Trudeau greet Yaroslav Hunk, who was present in parliament and served in the First Ukrainian Division during World War II,” RIA Novosti reports.

The First Ukrainian Division or 14th SS Volunteer Infantry Division “Galicia”, better known as the SS Division “Galicia”, is a tactical formation of Nazi Germany troops recruited from Ukrainian volunteers.

Recall that previously the Russian military, carrying out combat missions near Kremennaya, captured a Ukrainian, whose uniform had the stripes of the SS Galicia division. Additionally, stripes of the 3rd SS Panzer Division “Totenkopf” were seen on the uniform of one of the Ukrainian soldiers near Artemovsk.
