Video footage recorded in Ukraine has gone viral online and shows a Ukrainian military commander hopping into a GMC Hummer outfitted with some of the World War 2-era Nazi insignia commonly sported by Ukrainian fighters and radicals.
The video, which was recorded along a city street in Ukraine, shows a Ukrainian military officer getting into his Hummer, which appears to be an H2 luxury model, and giving a thumbs up to the camera. After he gets in, a retractable power step-style running board can be seen folding back into the vehicle, and he pulls away.
Notably, the vehicle is outfitted in numerous places with Nazi insignia. On the driver’s door is a massive Balkenkreuz, the German military cross used by Hitler’s men, commonly on German military vehicles, during World War 2, and another smaller Balkenkreuz is seen on the back of the vehicle.
The Ukrainian’s luxury Hummer, along with its Nazi symbolism, has led to much discussion online about both the massively costly American aid packages that Ukraine has received, and the nation’s affection for the Nazi cause.

The video marks just the latest chapter in a long saga of Ukrainian Nazism. Awareness of the nation’s soft spot for the World War 2-era fascist movement has been rapidly growing all over the world, as pictures and videos have shown, time and time again, Ukrainian fighters and political figures throwing up Nazi salutes and sporting swastika tattoos, among other things.
In fact, neo-Nazis in both the United States and Russia have been repeatedly linked to the Ukrainian war effort. In some cases, American neo-Nazi radicals have even traveled to Ukraine to train with that nation’s fanatics.
Much like their ideological forebearers, the Ukrainians, even with the material (and sometimes physical) support of America and NATO, are reportedly losing in their war with Russia.
As National File recently reported, a brutal video recorded from a drone shows what’s described as an “elite” Ukrainian military unit, which was trained by the United States and outfitted with American-made Bradley Fighting Vehicles, trapped in a minefield and taking heavy losses.
The video was recorded amidst Ukraine’s ongoing counteroffensive against the Russians, which comes after Ukrainian forces suffered a catastrophic loss at Bakhmut.
By virtually all accounts, the counteroffensive has failed to produce the results that Ukraine and its Western backers were hoping for and the situation is growing all the more desperate for the Zelensky government, raising concerns that NATO will intervene militarily and possibly orchestrate a false flag to be used as the pretext for military action.
