    In what seems to be a ping pong match between various courts in Ukraine,  Ukraine's High Administrative Court has ruled that former President Viktor Yushchenko illegally bestowed "hero" status on two Ukrainian independence leaders from the World War II era, RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service reports. The ruling in Kyiv on August 2 supports verdicts by two lower courts in Donetsk that Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists leader Stepan Bandera and underground Ukrainian insurgent army head Roman Shukhevych should not have been designated "heroes" by Yushchenko in 2007 and 2010, respectively.  Детальніше-Read More at RFE/RL   As previously reported,  On Monday, July 18, 2011, Kyiv's District Administrative Court upheld a 2010 decree by former president Viktor Yushchenko that posthumously conferred the status of independence fighters on nationalist militants who were active in western Ukraine during and shortly after World War II.

    Attorneys for John Demjanjuk have filed a motion in the US District Court for the Northern District of Ohio;
     "to set aside that final judgment that ultimately led to Mr. Demjanjuk’s denaturalization and deportation to the Federal Republic of Germany where he now resides. As more fully set out in the supporting memorandum of law, this motion rests upon the persistent failure of the government to comply with orders and other unambiguous obligations requiring disclosure of discovery materials to the defense. It also rests upon what the undersigned believe support a finding of fraud on the court for a remarkable third time undefined once as previously found by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, once by this Court in prior proceedings, and now the circumstances that give rise to this motion."
