MOSCOW, 15 February (BelTA) - Canada's decision to reject Russia's extradition request for Waffen SS Galicia Division veteran Yaroslav Hunka is a shame and disgrace for the whole West, State Secretary of the Union State of Belarus and Russia Dmitry Mezentsev told journalists, BelTA has learned.

Dmitry Mezentsev recalled that following the joint board meeting of the Defense Ministries of Belarus and Russia,on the instructions of the defense ministers, Viktor Khrenin and Sergey Shoigu, a request was sent to the Russian Prosecutor General's Office to demand the extradition of Waffen SS Galicia Division veteran Yaroslav Hunka living in Canada. "Russia’s Prosecutor General's Office and the Investigative Committee supported the extradition request. It was established that Yaroslav Hunka participated in the killing of more than 500 people during the Great Patriotic War," Dmitry Mezentsev said.

"The refusal to extradite Hunkaattests to the hypocritical position of the Canadian government and law enforcement. It also shows that double standards and absolute disregard for all rules, decency and human morality, not to mention laws, including those of Canada, are a trait inherent in the Western model of the so-called democracy," Dmitry Mezentsev said.

"It is a great shame. These are thepeople who think of themselves as civilized politicians, the proverbial golden billion. These are the people who try to impose their will on us and teach us morality, among other things. After that, talking to the West on this subject seems difficult, if not impossible. There is nothing more to add. Shame and disgrace,” he stressed.

"The most important thing is that these moral losses they have suffered prove that the Western world, the world of law and justice, is no longer there," Dmitry Mezentsev added.
