City hails SS links

I wonder how many people are aware that on Sunday, the day Crimea is due to hold its referendum on joining the Russian Federation, a public demonstration to commemorate the founding and actions of a number of Waffen SS divisions during the Second World War is due to be held in the capital city of a Nato/EU member state.

Although the commemoration has not been officially approved, it is still due to take place, and the Latvian government has 
been forced to pass a resolution forbidding participation in the demonstration of government ministers.
