 Russian TV Compared Poet Shevchenko to Hitler: "Fascists Allowed his Portraits Because of his Hatred to Russia". VIDEO

Russian TV channel Orenburg revealed the plot, which compared the Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko with Hitler.

"Fun fact: for Shevchenko's hate to Russian fascists allowed to put his portrait next to a portrait of Hitler and saved his monument in Kiev," says the story.

The 8 minute story, in particular, expressed disappointment that the Orenburg region celebrates Shevchenko's March, but not Pushkin's June.

"By the way, not only there is no Pushkin June in Orenburg region, but there is no, for example, Yesenin's October," says the story.

"It would be more understandable if the Russian-Ukrainian friendship immortalized Gogol in Orenburg. Nikolay's contribution to Russian literature is undeniable," said the anchor.

"But where does it come from, this ardent worship of Russophobe Shevchenko, which we cultivate year after year, setting up a month in his name? That is unknown. Why do our children need these strange and apparently alien idols, when our multinational literature has those who we can really be proud of," he added.
