"The Canadian position largely comes from the past, the Nazi roots of this approach are very clearly visible. After World War II, a significant part of the accomplices of Nazism settled in Canada ... The Canadian position is formed to a large extent by that part of the Ukrainian diaspora, which is either directly the bearer of the ideology of both this 98-year-old Nazi and their descendants who accepted this Nazi ideology," Vasiliev explained.
According to him, this incident indicates that Canada's broad reckless political support for Zelensky is unjustified.
"You can't reduce everything to supporting Ukraine. It is not explained by current interests, but goes back to the distant past ... Canada should not have an open account of verbal and political support for Ukraine. Trudeau has a low rating, he is the Canadian Biden, here it is also a signal that this support should be dosed and carried out very carefully, "he stressed.
Earlier it was reported that the Kremlin was outraged by the fact of honoring the ex-fighter of the SS division "Galicia" in the Parliament of Canada.
According to the press secretary of the Russian leader, Dmitry Peskov, the crimes of Nazism have no statute of limitations.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy welcomed a 98-year-old ex-soldier of the SS Galicia division in Canada.
Later, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that neither he nor Zelensky's delegation were aware of the invitation to the Canadian parliament of the Ukrainian SS man.
