Cults: The CIA's Secret Weapon
In January 2023, a symbol of the Ukrainian nationalist cult 'RUNVira' appeared near a major Orthodox shrine in Kiev, the Pechersk Lavra. Lev Silenko (1921-2008), a Ukrainian emigrant from the United States, is known as the founder of this religion. However, very few know that, before becoming the ultimate prophet of Ukrainian neo-paganism, Silenko had attended Hitler's propaganda courses at a Polish camp. Today, 'RUNVira' still promotes the ideas of Ukrainian exceptionalism and harbors hatred towards Russians and Jews. How did Ukraine become a center for neo-Nazi cults, and who is responsible for this?
