Scandalous documents disclosed: "Putin was right"


Azov Canada training funding Ukraine scandal Nazi photographs Ottawa Citizen mainstream media denial evasion complicity

The director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Israel denounced Canadian troops for training neo-Nazi fighters in Ukraine, saying Ottawa has a responsibility to prevent such things from happening. "The Canadian government has not paid due attention," Zuroff told the Ottawa Citizen. However, the Canadian military has denied any obligation to screen participants in the training.

“The Government of Canada did not exercise due diligence” Ephraim Zuroff told the Ottawa Citizen on Wednesday. “Defence Canada has an obligation to know exactly who they are training.”

Zuroff, however, insists that it is the responsibility of the Canadian Ministry of Defense to know exactly who the trainees are. “There is no doubt that there are neo-Nazis in Ukraine in various forms, whether in the Azov Regiment or other organizations,” he added.

His comments followed a report by Radio Canada on Monday that in November 2020, Canadian troops were photographed training members of the Azov Regiment, as well as at least one soldier with the identification marks of the SS division “Galicia”, Ukrainian unit that fought on the side of the Nazis in World War II.

The Canadian military has acknowledged the authenticity of the photographs, according to the Ottawa Citizen. However, the Canadian Forces (CAF) have denied that they are required to test the soldiers they train.  (more...)
