Ukraine: Regional governor calls Hitler 'a liberator'

Kherson region governor Yuri Odarchenko caused public resentment at a Victory Day meeting on Friday when he called Hitler "a liberator" and (Soviet leader Joseph) Stalin "a tyrant," reported. 
"If you read history, we see that he (Hitler) brought to the forefront the slogan urging to liberate people from Communist yoke, to free people from tyrant Stalin," said the official, a member of the Batkivshchina Party, according to the report. A woman then ran up to Odarchenko, and, calling him "faschist," threw away his microphone towards a group of World War II veterans.
