Ukrainian MPs want to make Bandera national hero again

Lawmakers from Ukraine's two biggest parties have filed a motion asking the Ukrainian president to posthumously bestow the ‘Hero of Ukraine’ award upon nationalist leader Stepan Bandera.

MPs from Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's 'Solidarity' block together with the People's Front party have backed a draft resolution asking him to award Bandera, the leader of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), the country's highest state award, RT reported.

In 2015, Poroshenko signed a law honoring the memory of various rebel and guerrilla groups fighting for the Ukrainian independence, including the OUN.
