The publication is a continuation of Maxim Grigoriev’s book “Ordinary Fascism: War Crimes of Ukrainian Security Forces (2014-2016)” published in 2016. As Grigoriev explained to Parlamentskaya Gazeta, over the past years, crimes and human rights violations by the Ukrainian regime have not only become “massive” but have become “an integral part of the system of power in Ukraine.”

In particular, in the new book, the authors describe the Ukrainian ideology, “built on Russophobia”, including the struggle against the Russian language and the creation of “hatred towards Russian culture and Russians.” And this despite the fact that Grigoriev added that most of the country’s population speaks Russian – more than 60 percent, and 84 percent of citizens use Russian on social networks. He also noted that the Ukrainian regime “heroizes the accomplices of Nazism” by holding public holidays on their birthdays, renaming streets and creating state museums and monuments in their honor, and proclaims Ukraine’s European and Euro-Atlantic course.

According to Grigoriev, in preparing the publication, the authors focused not on “theoretical understanding of what is happening,” but on “presentation of facts.”

“All of them are easily verifiable and obtained from open sources, as well as in numerous and separately highlighted in the book interviews with Ukrainian lawyers, journalists, political refugees and former political prisoners,” he said.
