Why Some Ukrainians Joined the Axis in World War II

Ukrainians that fought for Germany during the Second World War. In this video I explore the reasons for collaboration in German-occupied Ukraine during World War 2. Why did Ukrainians collaborate with Germany? In this video I will talk about the origins of Ukrainian ultranationalism and factions as the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) and its split: the OUN-M led by Andrei Melnik and the OUN-B led by Stepan Bandera. Their military wing became the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA). The Ukrainian Legion consisted of two battalions: the Nachtigall Battalion and the Roland Battalion. If you want to learn about Ukraine during WW2, this video is for you.
