With the German invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 the German army found among large sections of the non-ethnic Russian population who welcomed him as a liberator from the yoke of Bolshevism. Despite the fact that Hitler was negative as to the dedication of this people, the German commanders in the front quickly saw the advantage of using this resource willing to auxiliary roles. As a result of limited human resources, the German army began using prisoners as laborers volunteers since the summer of 1941 against the orders of Hitler. Ukraine, a large part of southwestern Russia, greeted the Germans as liberators and Ukrainian nationalists saw the German invasion as an opportunity to assert their independence from communist rule and therefore were willing to help the Germans to overthrow the Soviet government. In Ukraine, a large part of the population, about 400,000 people were of German origin Volksdeutsche who immediately embraced the German army. As a result, in early 1943 the Germans established the Ukrainian Liberation Army Українська визвольна влада, УBB. The Wermacht dispersed the YBB’s on German units where they were granted a special badge of ethnicity. The Germans have adopted the Ukrainian colors and trident emblem of Vladimir the Great Володимира Великого one Ukrainian hero who lived during the period 979 - 1015 as the emblem on the left sleeve. Ukrainian volunteers arrived in Greece after 1943 and placed as guards in various units and storage facilities. Some of those watching the ending of the war deserted and joined units of ELAS. After liberation of Greece they gathered in the town of Megara from which were transported by British planes in Russia, where most of them discovered the beauty of the Siberian land.
