Apr. 9, Verkhovna Rada recognized OUN (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists) and UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army) as organizations that fought for the independence of Ukraine in the XX century, Ukrayinska Pravda reports.

“The state acknowledges that the fighters for Ukraine’s independence played an important role in reinstating the country’s statehood declared on Aug. 24, 1991,” the law runs.
In compliance with the law, the government will provide social guarantees and bestow honors on OUN-UPA fighters.

 “Public denunciation of the role of OUN-UPA in restoring the independence of Ukraine is illegal,” the law says.
