While there is some support for figures that are part of the Far Right, like Andriy Biletsky, who is an MP, people didn't vote for him because he was a neo-Nazi. Instead, they voted for him because he was a known figure, said Andreas Umland, a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation. These Far Right figure, like Biletsky, have emerged out of nowhere in the past five months and people simply aren't familiar with their backgrounds, said Umland.
Andreas Umland spoke with Hromadske International co-hosts Ian Bateson and Nataliya Gumenyuk on Dec. 14, 2014 during the Sunday Show.
