Neo-Nazi's a threat to Ukraine/Poland?

Thanks to Super Rhino for the link.

The Ukrainian militant group Right Sector poses a serious threat to Poland and nearby European countries, Polish politician Miroslaw Orzechowski told Sputnik.
Right Sector's ideology is based on the ultra-nationalist principles of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) led by Stepan Bandera during World War II and in the postwar period. Among other horrendous war crimes, the UPA terrorized Polish territories, ethnically-cleansing Poles from Volhynia and Eastern Galicia regions.
"This [ultranationalist] ideology is flourishing in contemporary circumstances in Europe…For Poland, Right Sector…is especially dangerous," Orzechowski said.

Interesting.  I don't quite understand it but the Nazi ideology has appeal in the very countries that suffered when the "originals" were around.

I can see (not condone but understand) how a nation under stress and needing fighters could turn to unsavory groups for assistance...but Nazis?

If this is true and this becomes widely known then Ukraine is toast.

Support will dry up.  I know I'll find it hard to support that nation if its just another front for new age national socialist.
