Andriy Volodymyrovych Parubiy (Ukrainian: Андрій Володимирович Парубій) is a Ukrainian politician[2] and the former Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, appointed after leading the anti-government protests in the 2014 Ukrainian revolution,[3] until his resignation on 7 August 2014.[4]


In the years leading up to the [6]

Parubiy co-led the Orange Revolution in 2004.[2][8] In the 2007 parliamentary elections he was voted into the Ukrainian parliament on an Our Ukraine–People's Self-Defense Bloc ticket. He then became a member of the deputy group that would later become For Ukraine!.[2] Parubiy stayed with Our Ukraine and became a member of its political council.[9]

In February 2010 Parubiy asked the Hero of Ukraine.[10]

In early February 2012 Parubiy left Our Ukraine because their "views diverged".[11] In 2012 he was re-elected into parliament on the party list of "Fatherland".[12]

From December 2013 to February 2014 Parubiy was a commandant of Euromaidan.[13] He was coordinator of the volunteer security corps for the mainstream protesters.[14] He was then appointed Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine.[3] This appointed was approved by (then) new Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on 16 June 2014.[15]

As Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Parubiy oversaw the "anti–terrorist" operation against pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.[16]

Parubiy resigned as Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council on 7 August 2014. He declined to say why, stating "I believe it is unacceptable to comment on my resignation in a time of war" on his Facebook page. President Poroshenko signed a decree confirming Parubiy's dismissal the same day.[4]

In September 2014 Parubiy became a founding member of his new party People's Front.[17]

It is noteworthy that of these various Ukrainian nationalist parties the SNPU was the least inclined to conceal its neofascist affiliations. Its official symbol was the somewhat modified Wolf’s Hook (wolfsangel), used as a symbol by the German SS division Das Reich and the Dutch SS division Landstorm Nederland during World War II and by a number of European neofascist organizations after 1945.33 As seen by the SNPU leadership, the Wolf’s Hook became the “idea of the nation.” Moreover, the official name of the party’s ideology, “social nationalism,” clearly referred back to “national socialism”—the official name of the ideology of the National-Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSDAP) and of the Hitlerite regime. The SNPU’s political platform distinguished itself by its openly revolutionary ultranationalism, its demands for the violent takeover of power in the country, and its willingness to blame Russia for all of Ukraine’s ills. Moreover, the SNPU was the first relatively large party to recruit Nazi skinheads and football hooligans. But in the politi- cal arena, its support in the 1990s remained insignificant.
