The USA didn't just support the idea of using Eastern European assets as a counter to Soviet expansion, it set up full blown governments in exile around the world for the captive nations, allowing a sizable part of the actual Bandera army of well over 100,000 Ukrainian war criminals to immigrate to America. The Bandera came as an army. Bandera only existed as an army.

presidents, while becoming US citizens. The Ukrainian, Hungarian,
Lithuanian, Latvian, and Polish ultra-nationalists formed a country
within our country, recognized as dual citizens. They began
dominating our politics from the late 1940's.
Anti-American Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA)
Over the last seventy years, while working toward the overthrow of the Soviet Union, Yaroslav Stetsko's ABN, led by the UCCA, also worked toward the eventual takeover of the other thing they disliked most: American Democracy.

the decades, the sections of the US government that dealt with the
American ABN group (UCCA and its affiliates) specifically referred to
them as anti-Americans who were violently opposed to American policy,
anti-democratic Nazi's, and war criminals. The US Army Counter
Intelligence and the Federal government's description of them has
been that they are as anti-American as they were anti-communist or
anti-Russian. These statements cover several decades.
1991 president George Bush
stated bluntly he would not turn Ukraine over to a group of suicidal
nationalists. He was speaking to and about the ABN and
specifically the UCCA. In 1991, other ultra-nationalist factions
(OUNm from Australia and Germany), took control of Ukraine, and the

Anti-Americans in America
Europe's Promethean experiment produced extreme ultra-nationalism in every country that had been part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and Ukraine was the model. During the Cold War, Yaroslav Stetsko set up the ABN as the sole source of intelligence for the Western world on all things related to the Soviet Union. The anti communist groups became the only representatives of East Block countries the Western world dealt with. In 1936 the OUN publication, The Nationalist , stated its position pretty clearly about the United States to the native groups that revolved around the UCCA after the war:
Nationalism is the love of country and the willingness to sacrifice for her...A person brought up as a Ukrainian Nationalist will make a one hundred percent better AMERICAN CITIZEN than one who is not.

The 1940's Rise of Nazi America
Throughout the following decades, the former Promethean countries emigre leadership in the US increased their positions in American politics and policy by becoming America's star anti-communists. Bandera OUN/ABN alone came in by the hundreds of thousands, having existed as an army before this. Military Intelligence in 1947 showed that the ABN had a military wing, including the OUNb (today's leadership is UCCA), the Polish-Baltic Legion, and former German, Cossack, Caucasian, and Turkmenistani military units. In the US they went as far as purchasing a few war planes, becoming countries within our country. The ABN was divided into five sections: military, youth, counter-espionage, government, and propaganda.
