Putin said he started the war in Ukraine against the neo-Nazis, but nobody is listening to him. MSM is claiming that Putin is using Nazi propaganda to defend the invasion of Ukraine. But, if Putin is right, who are the neo-Nazis, and how many are they?
The war in Ukraine started in 2014, and this is also the year the neo-Nazi group called Azov Battalion was founded by far-right nationalist Andriy Biletsky. In its early days, Azov was a special police company of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Andriy Biletsky, the gang`s leader who became Azov`s commander, once wrote that Ukraine`s mission is to «lead the White Races of the world in a final crusade….. against the Semite-led Untermenschen.»
Andriy Biletsky is now a deputy in Ukraine`s parliament.
Biletsky is also the head of two neo-Nazi political groups, the Patriot of Ukraine and the Social-National Assembly. In August 2014, he was awarded a military decoration, «Order For Courage», by Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, and promoted to lieutenant colonel in the Interior Ministry`s police forces.
Later on, in 2016, veterans of the regiment and members of a non-government organization called the Azov Civil Corps created the political party National Corps.
Azov Battalion is a right-wing extremist, neo-Nazi, a formerly paramilitary unit of the National Guard of Ukraine, based in Mariupol, in the Azov Sea coastal region. Azov initially formed as a volunteer militia in May 2014 and has since been fighting Russian separatist forces in the Donbas War.
It saw its first combat experience recapturing Mariupol from pro-Russian separatists in June 2014. on 12 November 2014, Azov was incorporated into the National Guard of Ukraine, and since then all members have been official soldiers serving in the National Guard.
The Azov Battalion has its roots in a group of ultras of FC Metalist Kharkiv named «Sect 82». «Sect 82» was allied with FC Spartak Moscow ultras. «Sect 82» occupied the Kharkiv Oblast regional administration building in Kharkiv and served as a local «self-defense force.»
Soon after, a company of the Special Tasks Patrol Police called «Eastern Corps» was formed on the basis of «Sect 82». Azov was started as one of the Ukrainian volunteer battalions of the Special Tasks Patrol Police regulated by the Ukrainian Interior Ministry.
Arsen Avakov, the new Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine after the overthrow of the Yanukovich government, issued on April 13, 2014, a decree authorizing the creation of the new paramilitary force from civilians up to 12,000.
The neo-Nazis have infiltrated the Ukrainian government, the police force as well as the military complex system.
In 2014, the Azov Battalion gained attention after allegations of torture and war crimes, as well as neo-Nazi sympathies. The group has also been criticized for use of controversial symbols, as seen in their logo featuring the Wolfsangel, which is one of the Nazi symbols used by the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich.
Since 2014, Azov Battalion has killed more than 14,000 innocent people. Many of them are tortured, while others are burned alive. This is probably why Putin has had enough. This is a war crime, but on Sunday, Ukraine`s Zelenskyy says Russia`s siege of Mariupol, which is Azov`s headquarters, involved war crimes.
Zelenskyy also says Russia`s siege of the port city is «a terror that will be remembered for centuries to come».
The fall of Mariupol would mark a major battlefield advance for the Russians in the biggest land invasion in Europe since World War II. The Russian siege in Azov`s headquarter, Mariupol can be the end of the war, as Moscow sets Mariupol’s surrender deadline.
Ukraine has until 5am Moscow time (02:00 GMT on Monday) to respond to an offer on laying down arms and humanitarian corridors, Russa says. President Zelenskyy has told CNN that negotiations are the only way to «end this war».
The city Mariupol is destroyed and it is wiped off the face of the earth, Mariupol police officer Michail Vershnin said in a video to Western leaders on Sunday.
Estimates of Russian deaths vary widely, but even conservative figures are in the low thousands. Russia had 64 deaths in five days of fighting during its 2008 war with Georgia. It lost about 15,000 in Afghanistan over 10 years, and more than 11,000 in years of fighting in Chechnya, according to Aljazeera.
Alex Rubinstein tweeted a few days ago: «Watch Yevhen Karas the leader of Ukraine`s neo-Nazi terror gang C14`s speech from Kyiv earlier this month. Straight from the horses’ mouth, he dispels the many narratives pushed by the left, the mainstream media, and the State Department. Karas said: «We were now been given so much weaponry, not because as some say: «west is helping us. Not because they want the best for us, but because we perform the tasks set by the West because we are the only ones who are ready to do them because we have fun, we have fun killing and we have fun fighting, and that is the reason for the new alliance; Turkey, Poland, Britain, and Ukraine».
Mr. Karas also said they Ukraine doesn`t want to join the EU. «No, we are a huge powerful state, and if we come to power it will be both joy and problems for the whole world. Being part of a European family has already collapsed. This is about a new political alliance on the global level. A new political challenge».
We know from MSM that many people around the world are helping the neo-Nazis in Ukraine in the war against Russia. Many of them come from Scandinavia and especially from Sweden, but are countries around the world helping the neo-Nazis?
A provision in Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, passed by the United States Congress, blocked military aid to Azov on the grounds of its white supremacist ideology, in 2015, a similar ban on aid to the group had been overturned by Congress.
Mr. Karas also said that Maidan was a coup and that Maidan was the victory of the nationalist ideas. The neo-Nazis aren`t many members, but their influence is huge. That`s why they succeeded in the Maidan coup.
C14 signed an agreement with Kyiv`s city government to patrol its streets in early 2018. months later it began a campaign of pogroms against Romani camps.
We see a lot of propaganda from many sides, but according to Nation, five years ago, Ukraine`s Maidan uprising ousted President Viktor Yanukovych, to the cheers and support of the West. Politicians and analysts in the United States and Europe not only celebrated the uprising as a triumph of DEMOCRACY but denied reports of Maidan`s ultranationalism, smearing those who warned about the dark side of the uprising as Moscow puppets and USEFUL IDIOTS. Freedom was on the march in Ukraine, and the Nazis were waiving the swastica flag in the name of democracy.
Today, increasing reports of far-right violence, ultranationalism, and erosion of basic freedoms are giving the lie to the West`s initial euphoria. There are neo-Nazi pogroms against Roma, rampant attacks on feminists and LGBT groups, blood bans, and state-sponsored glorification of Nazi collaborators.
Post-Maidan Ukraine is the world`s only nation to have a neo-Nazi formation in its armed forces. The Azov Battalion was initially formed out of the neo-Nazi gang Patriot of Ukraine.
Azov Battalion took control over Mariupol in 2014, but as of Sunday 21 March, the Russian army took it back. Zelenskyy says he is ready for negotiations with Putin, but if they fail «that could mean that this is a third world war.»
