The particular fanatatical Azov Battalion had been formed in 2014 with a self-described Nazi amid the Maidan Uprising that resulted in the Soros-backed coup of Ukraine’s government.
Their insignia is taken from the 2nd SS Das Reich Panzer Division, and they also happily display the swastika and the Sonnenrad, another Nazi image.
Top work from the fucking geniuses on @Welt here, publishing a write-up about the “lie” of Azov being a Neo-Nazi unit by having an accompanying picture of a Battalion flag featuring both the Nazi Wolfsjagd logo *and* Nazi black sun logo. What’s that quote regarding not learning history? https://t.co/MMKYv4tj25

Like their support designed for Antifa, the left has no trouble backing an freely fascist group so long as they align with their political targets: in this case, waging war against Russia .
