Anti-Semitism charges don’t stick against Ukrainian nationalist group
OUN leader, Mykola Lebed, is the main target of the National Archives publication. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) connection here does not work since the CIA did not work with Bandera or Stetsko. In the subject study, Lebed is branded an anti-Semite many times, but specifically charged with only one accusation of a war crime unrelated to anti-Semitism. Lebed is quoted only once, saying it is necessary “to cleanse the entire revolutionary territory of the Polish population.” Still, the source is highly respected historian Timothy Snyder.
