My point is that, while there were heroic people and heroic acts within the UPA, the UPA's policy of massacring Poles and other ethnic minorities in Ukraine makes it, in my opinion, ridiculous to celebrate the organization as a whole.
Indeed. It'd be nice to see Christians no longer celebrate the slaughter of other people.
The UPA was the ONLY military force that fought FOR UKRAINE in WW2.
There is absolutely no evidence that there were orders from the UPA commanders to massacre Poles and other minorities. (In fact, quite a lot of UPA fighters were themselves ethnic Russians or ethnic Jews.) An attempt on the life of a civilian - of any ethnicity - had to be, according to the UPA disciplinary code, punished by firing squad.
Of course, during a ruthless guerilla war, all sides seek those who aid the other side, and deal with those people quite brutally at times. Polish Armiya Krayova did that to whoever they thought were aiding UPA, and UPA retaliated by the same actions, yes, sometimes brutal, dirty, bloody.
Still, just like AK are heroes to Poles, UPA are heroes to me, and as long as I live I will celebrate their memory.
