English translation:junkheads
Explanation:
Context is too scarce to get all the nuances (e.g. whether capitalization of the first letters means something). Other than that, any abusive word meaning “brainless idiots” will do.

This word may refer to УПА - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_Insurgent_Army

In that case the meaning might be "the junkheads from Ukrainian Insurgent Army"
