Found on the Net. As you can see, by 2018-2019, Ukraine was pretty much transformed into a Nazi/fascist country. Denazification is going to be real difficult in a place with an infestation this bad.
My ex-gf was a Kharkov native so I was there three times between 2018-2019. I first entered Ukraine in 2018, and Kiev had a really weird, unfriendly vibe, and there were Right Sector flags everywhere.
Also, in 2018 there was an Azov recruiting tent on Freedom Square in Kharkov. But there was still the odd bit of anti-Trizub graffiti visible on the train ride (the high speed train from Kiev that actually has air conditioning in the summer, unlike most of their trains) into the city.
In 2019, all of that was gone. The Azov tent was still there. But you started to see “patriotic” shit everywhere, like really over the top, everything must be blue and yellow. You saw more and more NG soldiers/reservists in uniform walking around the city. Kharkov became a stronghold for them, just as Mariupol did. Two cities, in the Ukrainian East, full of ethnic Russians…and major bases for the nationalist militias.
I ended the relationship in late 2019 and have not returned to Ukraine since. The next time I go, it might actually be a nice place!
