(p.55) Chapter 3 Victory Day Violence in Ukraine
Political Insults

Karina V. Korostelina

Oxford University Press

Chapter 3 depicts the role of insults in the conflict over history in Ukraine, including diverse verbal statements and actions of both sides, the “war” of regional laws, aggression against war veterans, and frying eggs on the internal flame of the Tomb of Unknown Soldiers. On May 9, 2011, a group of World War II veterans and representatives of NGOs came to L’viv from the Eastern and Southern regions of Ukraine to celebrate Victory Day. Together with a group of Russian diplomats, they were attacked by Ukrainian nationalists from the western ultra-right-wing party Svoboda. Some of nationalists were prosecuted, and the attack was officially condemned by Ukrainian and Russian governments.
