I read it.
I understand why Polish people would be sensitive to OUN-B, since they slaughtered Poles wholesale. However, "Slava Ukraini" has a history and considerable usage independent of its incidental use by fascists as a nationalist patriotic slogan. It was used during the struggle for independence during the 1910s/1920s and again Soviet rule and collapse. OUN-B did not coin the slogan. While their actions were atrocious and unforgivable, they do not define the meaning of a slogan that intrinsically only expresses support for Ukraine. Literally all it means is "glory to Ukraine!" When Tacky says "Glory to Ukraine," he's clearly not endorsing fascism or the murder of Poles and Jews- no more than you endorse Communist Poland when you use Polish national symbols which they also used (like the current Polish flag, anthem, and coat of arms).
Might as well say the CORP clan icon supports Japanese atrocities in WW2, or that "Deutschland uber alles" is a Nazi slogan. There are slogans and symbols associated directly with these fascists and their actions, and there are slogans and symbols that were incidentally and tragically used by fascists. Even the fasces itself still has a non-fascist use in American courts.
