The City Council OF Kyiv, capital of Ukraine, wanted to name a street after Volodymyr Kubiyovych,  a Nazi collaborator and SS official, but the city’s Mayor Vitali Klitschko intervened to prevent it.

During the Holocaust, Kubiyovych was involved in the formation of the Waffen-SS Galizien, a Nazi military force made up of Ukrainian volunteers.

Kubiyovych died in Paris in 1985 and, to this day, he is recognized by many as an important Ukrainian scholar, and his works continue to be widely circulated despite his Nazi past.
