The war between Ukraine and Russia is still going on. Ukraine’s army battalions are facing Russia in full force. Russia recently declared an entire Ukrainian regiment a terrorist organization. It is rare for a country’s army battalion to be declared a terrorist organization by another country. This step has been taken by the Supreme Court of Russia. The court cited that the soldiers of the Azhov battalion in Ukraine had a very checkered history. Azov troops have played a major role in the conflict in eastern Ukraine against Russia.
The Azhov Regiment existed as a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine. Ajaw soldiers are very stubborn and stubborn and do not surrender easily to any victim. However, Russia has claimed to have captured more than 1,000 soldiers of the Azov Regiment from the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. The battle at the port of Mariupol, an important port of Ukraine in the south-eastern region, lasted for a long time in which the Azov Regiment took the lion’s share. When the Russian Army took control of Mariupol, the soldiers of the Azov Regiment, hiding in a steel plant, challenged it, so the battle in Mariupol lasted for a month.
According to the information received, the arrested soldiers of the Ajaw Regiment will be prosecuted under the Anti-Terrorism Act. Life imprisonment is punishable under this law. The Azov Regiment was formed in 2014 to fight pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine. After that, Azhov was considered a part of the Army of Ukraine itself. The soldiers of the Azhov Regiment are considered extremely nationalist and extreme right-wing. The Azhov Regiment also keeps in touch with Germany’s staunch nationalists. Russia accuses Ukraine of harboring nine Nazis, citing the Azov Regiment. However, the soldiers of the Azhov Regiment continue to deny the allegations of being Nazis.
