Ternopol legislature bans use of Soviet, communist, Nazi symbols on May 8-9

KYIV. April 27 (Interfax) - The Ternopol city legislature has declared May 8 and 9 days of mourning for heroes killed during World War II and banned the use of Soviet, Communist and Nazi symbols during public events on these days.

"In order to honor the heroes killed in World War II decently and to commemorate the events of 1939-45 with dignity, we declare May 8 and 9 days of morning and memory for World War II heroes, and ban the use of Soviet, communist and Nazi symbols on buildings and apartment blocks during public events in Ternopol," Mayor Serhiy Nodal said.

The city legislature's similar decisions, made in 2012 and 2013, were appealed by the prosecutor's office, the city legislature's press service reported.

"Therefore, the deputies backed this decision unanimously this time, guided by the desire to honor the heroes properly on May 8 and 9 and to prevent provocation," Nadal was quoted as saying.

He said this decision complies with the legislation, adding that, "the public will be informed and explanatory work will be done."
