Kriss is a Ukrainian nationalist activist, with sympathies towards the extremer elements of the pro Ukrainian movement including Stepen Bandera. Bandera led the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN B) during WW2. His forces killed over 60 000 polish civilians in an attempt at ethnically cleansing the region. His forces also wilfully collaborated with the Nazis to round up, deport and kill Jews and Russians within the Ukraine.

Kriss is far from just an observer with some dodgy sympathies. In 2014 she founded Smiling Child International, a shady front organisation to fundraise for the ambiguous pro Ukrainian rebels. One of the largest of these is the neo Nazi militia Azov Battalion, who are fellow Bandera supporters. Azov are the armed wing of the larger Pravy Sektor (Right Sector).

Despite the evident lack of Ukrainian ultra nationalist organisations in Australia, Kriss still has some friends. She is a close friend of Trotskyist activist Mark Goudkamp who is involved in the Refugee Action Coalition and a prominent figure within the Trotskyite organisation Solidarity, which is closely linked with the English Socialist Workers Party. The two are pictured below attending a Sydney rally in December 2016 in support of the US backed Free Syrian Army, which is linked to the Al Qaeda network.
