Ultranationalists of the Ukrainian political party All-Ukrainian "Freedom" Union, known as Svoboda, attacked WWII veterans, ripping off, trampling on and burning their Saint George ribbons.
They assaulted the buses which were carrying war heroes, their grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and beat up veterans' defenders. This happened nearly three years before Euromaidan. The Ukrainian TV channel ATV (Odessa) reported on the events of 9 May in Lvov.
