Igor Miroshnichenko is a former journalist. Today he is a senior member of "Svoboda", (previous name "Socialist Nationalist Party of Ukraine") a ranking member of Parliament representing united opposition. He also chairs the Ukrainian Committee for Freedom of Speech in Verhovnaya Rada (Parliament).
If you have been following the spread of neo-Nazism in Eastern Europe, then Mr Miroshnichenko's Facebook page is well worth a visit. Here he is celebrating the anniversary of formation of the Ukrainian SS division. Apparently, they are "heros":
Here Mr Miroshnichenko compares children-prisoners from Auschwitz with underfed war-time children from a Russian village: .
The not-so sublime message is that Nazi concentration camps weren't so bad. Somehow Mr Miroshnichenko forgets to mention that the liberation of Auschwitz took place in January. Thick winter coats, provided by the liberating army, make children look sufficiently well-nourished for Mr Miroshnichenko's purposes. Photos without coats are widely available, but apparently they don't suit the purpose of Holocaust denial:,
The youth division of Mr Miroshnichenko's party claims that Jews are disproportionately represented in the Ukrainian Government:

Nobody can accuse these people of having too much imagination.
