“I don’t want to shock anyone, but there is a small chance that not everything is Russian disinformation,” Musk wrote on the social network X (formerly Twitter).
Earlier, Trudeau called for a fight back against Russian propaganda after inviting a Ukrainian veteran who served in the SS Galicia division to the country’s parliament.
“I think it will be really important that we all stand up against Russian propaganda, Russian disinformation and continue our strong and unconditional support for Ukraine,” he said (as quoted by Sky News).
Earlier, on September 22, during the visit of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to Ottawa, 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka was invited to an event in parliament, who was introduced as “a fighter for Ukrainian independence against the Russians during the Second World War.”
Yaroslav Hunka served in the 14th SS Volunteer Division “Galicia”, recruited from Ukrainian volunteers and taking part in World War II on the side of Germany in 1943-1945.
After this, the Russian Embassy sent the Canadian Foreign Ministry and the office of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau note of protest. Poland and Belarus also demanded an apology from the Canadian authorities. The representative of the UN Secretary General, Stephane Dujarric, said that the organization opposes the glorification of the Nazis.
Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons Anthony Rota apologized for inviting a Ukrainian SS division soldier to parliament. “I later became aware of additional information that made me regret my decision,” he said.
