Poland Initiates Extradition of Nazi SS Veteran Following Canadian Tribute

Poland’s Education Minister, Przemysław Czarnek, has initiated steps for the extradition of Yaroslav Hunka, the 98-year-old Ukrainian-Canadian, who served in the Nazi SS Galizien during World War II. Last week, Hunka was introduced by Speaker Anthony Rota in the Canadian Parliament as a “Ukrainian hero” and a “Canadian hero,” earning him a standing ovation during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s address to Parliament.

Rota has since apologized for inviting and acknowledging Hunka, asserting that it was his sole decision to invite him and that his intention was not to embarrass the Parliament.

Trudeau, meanwhile, is throwing shade at Russia over the Liberals’ honorary tribute to the former Nazi member, insisting that Canadians need to push back against forthcoming Russian disinformation and maintain their support for Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Canada’s Minister of Justice, Arif Virani, stated that he cannot comment on the situation as no official extradition request has been received, and there has been no direct contact from the Polish government on this matter.
