Banderites (Banderivtsi). Colloquial term for members and supporters of the faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists led by Stepan Bandera. This term has been used pejoratively in Soviet propaganda and to denote the Ukrainian underground during and after the Second World War, as well as all Ukrainian nationalists and all those in Ukraine opposed to Soviet nationality policy. It continues to be used by radical anti-democratic pro-Russian forces in independent Ukraine to denote members of pro-Western democratic parties, especially hailing from Western Ukraine.
