War: It’s an attack on everyone, you made mistake – Germany slammed for banning Ukrainian flags

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, has slammed Germany’s decision to ban Ukrainian flags at events commemorating the end of World War II on Sunday.

“Berlin made a mistake by prohibiting Ukrainian symbols.

“It’s deeply false to treat them equally with Russian symbols.

“Taking a Ukrainian flag away from peaceful protesters is an attack on everyone who now defends Europe and Germany from Russian aggression with this flag in hands,” Kuleba said in a statement issued on Monday.

The comments came in response to a decision by German authorities to impose restrictions, including a ban on Russian and Ukrainian flags.

It is taking place in 15 locations to prevent tensions between supporters of the two sides on the 77th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe.

Both Ukrainian and red flags with Soviet references were displayed despite the ban.
