What you say is so true. Courageous Ukrainians, like Wiktor Poliszczuk, who dare to tell the truth are ostracised and defamed by the majority of their countrymen of the Ukrainian Diaspora. The saddest aspect is that some of the worst offenders in this regard of glorifying the OUN and UPA, and covering up and/or denying their crimes are Church newspapers and periodicals, as I have observed on many occasions over the years.
