(Newser) – Adolf Hitler dolls—with arms that move to make the infamous "sieg heil" salute—will soon be on sale in the Ukraine, the BBC reports. The Barbie-sized figure, which even comes with a change of outfits, is certain to spark an outcry in the country where the Nazis killed 3 million people and positive depictions of the Nazi regime are banned. Government critics blame its policies for a chilling rise in neo-Nazism.
