Kremlin says Canada must bring Nazi veteran to justice

The Kremlin said Wednesday that a Ukrainian Nazi veteran inadvertently honoured in the Canadian parliament last week should be brought to justice and suggested that he be extradited.

The speaker of Canada's parliament resigned following the incident, which saw lawmakers publicly applaud 98-year-old Ukrainian veteran Yaroslav Hunka, who fought for the Nazis during World War II.

"Canadian authorities have a duty to bring to justice – or to extradite to those who wish to bring to justice – this criminal," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

Poland said Tuesday it was looking at extraditing the veteran, and investigating whether Hunka – who fought for an SS unit – was wanted for crimes against Poles or Polish Jews.
