On this day, 62 years ago...
Ukrainian fascist bandit known as "Stepan Bandera" was sent to the eternal abodes via cyanide, and this is the name that appeared on his coffin:
Who messed up at his funeral, and why?
And in school he was known as "Stefan":
The above cannot be the Polish version of "Stepan" because the Polish version is "Szczepan".
Did somebody Ukrainise his name later?
Appears that Bandera even wrote his name as "Stefan", look at the signed photo below:
And also interesting at this instance is the fact that Bandera's grandson is named "Stefko." A strange name by the way.
Above he is seen with the son of Petro Shelest, the leader of Ukrainian Communists during the Khrushchev Era, Vitaliy. This in fact engenders more questions beyond the topic of this post.
