London, Apr 24 (UNI) Three million Ukrainians including 1.5 million Jews lost their life due to Nazi occupation of their country but ironically Adolf Hitler dolls are being marketed there.
This may be the result of extreame right political sentiments that prevails there as reports of increasing xenophobia and racism similar to that of Nazi Germany under Hitler.
Critics believe a cult of Hitler could spring up among disaffected youths, too young to remember the ravages Nazism wreaked on the country.
Hitler wanted to turn Ukraine into a buffer zone with Russia peopled by slave workers working for the Third Reich. Although Ukranian laws prohibit any form of fascism or propaganda, the dolls are already on sale and will be mass marketed this summer.
An action-man style doll of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler has gone on sale in the Ukraine, with saleswomen comparing the doll to Barbie, Daily Mail reported.
''It is like Barbie. Kids can undress fuhrer, pin on medals and there's a spare head in the kit to give him a kinder expression on his face,'' a saleswoman said.
''He has glasses that are round, in the manner of pacifist Jon Lennon,'' she added.
