Paul Massaro, a Senior Policy Advisor at the federally-run US Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, posted and then deleted a photo on Twitter of himself donning a Ukrainian military badge depicting infamous Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera.
Paul Massaro runs one of the most aggressively pro-Ukraine accounts on Twitter while using his federal foreign policy position to advocate for expanding the Russo-Ukrainian War. Recently, he posted a photograph of himself wearing a Ukrainian badge that depicts Stepan Bandera, a highly controversial figure in Ukrainian politics who collaborated with Hitler’s Nazis and was considered a war criminal by the United States and other allied nations.
“Hey, look what I’ve got,” Massaro tweeted, attaching a photograph of himself wearing his Nazi Bandera badge while sitting in front of a Ukrainian flag hanging from his wall.
Shortly after posting the photo of his Stepan Bandera badge, Paul Massaro deleted it, writing in another post that “at the request of a good Polish friend,” he’d taken it down. Bandera, a Ukrainian nationalist seen as a martyr by radicals like the Azovs, is said to be responsible for the Nazi-inspired World War 2-era slaughter of ethnic Poles and Jews.
“God bless Polish-Ukrainian friendship and may it remain strong forever,” Massaro added.
Despite his long-held status as a brutal war criminal, Stepan Bandera is still hailed as a national hero across Ukraine. At soccer matches, Ukrainian fans are known to unfurl massive banners depicting Bandera’s portrait, and badges like the one worn by Massaro have popped up in neo-Nazi-tied Ukrainian military units.
