MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The family of a Minnesota man is disputing a report that he commanded a Nazi SS-led unit in World War II and lied about his wartime past when immigrating to the U.S.
A son of Michael Karkoc (KAHR’-kahts) read a statement late Friday accusing The Associated Press of defaming Karkoc.
AP reported that Karkoc was a top commander in the Ukrainian Self-Defense Legion, citing Karkoc’s own memoir among other evidence.
Karkoc’s son, Andriy Karkos, says his father “was never a Nazi.”
He says the family won’t comment further until it obtains its own documents and reviews witnesses and sources.
