The candidate for the position of the President of Ukraine in the elections-2019 point by point defended Hitler’s political program on Ukrainian television.
One of the presenters comically described the incident: “How to read Hitler’s program during live air for twenty minutes and don’t have any consequences”.
The head of the Social Democratic Party of Ukraine, Sergey Kaplin on the political show Hate Night Live could not distinguish his own election program from the NSDAP program, which was written by Adolf Hitler in 1920. The TV presenter Yury Gudimenko told about the incident on his Facebook page.
The hosts of the show, while allegedly discussing the candidate’s election program, began reading out Kaplin’s abstracts from the NSDAP program, the presidential candidate did not notice the trick, and for the next 20 minutes, the show defended Hitler’s program points. In addition, he stressed that this would help to positively change the legislation.
“I read one point, the second, the third in a row … Kaplin does not notice anything and comments argues, protects each point of the program as if it was his own, tells how he will pass laws on these points … Twenty minutes it went on. <…> Funny happened. It would be necessary to test other candidates for the title of president,” Gudimenko wrote.
Ну действительно весело вчера получилось.Мы зазвали в наше шоу социалиста Каплина и я под видом дискуссии о его…
Later during the program journalists told Kaplin about the trick and accused him of not knowing his own electoral theses. To which the politician replied that Hitler’s theses were similar to the theses of his program and party.
