Replying to @krakowmaggie @nytimes

It’s easy to call people attempting to correct such glaring distortions, “nationalists”, “far-right”, etc. But take this example and consider how offensive a slur it is against Poles whose families suffered at the hands of this man. And this is just one instance, one article.

    The @ipngovpl_eng released this statement regarding the misleading media reports on Palij: "no Polish SS unit ever existed. There were, however, SS formations and other uniformed formations to which volunteers of Ukrainian nationality [...] were recruited."

    That’s great, but I struggle to understand why such distortions aren’t more vigorously corrected. They / other institutions should address each instance of a media distortion, especially one with the readership of the NYT.

    The author / NYT editor (!) is on a twitter. I am fully expecting the usual response; being blocked or called a nationalist or right-wing. I’m neither.

    If our officials in the U.S. @AmbWilczek and @MGolubiewskiPL don't intervene here, next time we will read about "Polish SS Galizien", or "Poland's SS Galizien" in the @nytimes...

    Quoted @krakowmaggie

    This gentleman seems to be genuinely confused. I believe he’s saying that Poles and Ukrainians are “the same people”. I see no other explanation for why he’d cite info referring to Ukrainian auxiliary police and OUN, but attribute the atrocities to Poles. It’s quite strange.

    Yup. We’re not far from that happening. I was blocked by this guy for pointing out that Ukrainians and Poles aren’t “the same peopke”. He claimed that “Polish Nazis” killed his relatives, but then pointed to info about Ukrainian police and OUN. Unreal.
