Ukrainian Battalion Azov in the Sights of US Congress
Moscow, Jun 12 (Prensa Latina) The Ukrainian battalion Azov, of the National Guard of Ukraine, has been focused on by the US Congress as a dangerous paramilitary structure for its neo-Nazi ideology, according to media.
Azov, one of the units involved since April 2014 in the punitive operation against the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, in the Ukrainian southeast, is a target of the US Congress.
So much, that the House of Representatives approved yesterday an amendment proposed by Republicans that prohibits the military train Azov members and supply Ukraine with mobile missile complexes, which could fall into the hands of that formation, as per the Kommersant newspaper.
Azov was considered as 'third force' between the parties fighting in the territory of Donbass, which are currently not subject to the command of President Petro Poroshenko and ignore the agreements of Minsk.
Igor Mosiichuk, former commander of the battalion and member of the Radical Party, said on last February that the Minsk compromises, pro-peace process, meant a national betrayal.
One of the authors of the legislative initiative, Congressman John Conyers, told reporters he was satisfied because "our military will not train that odious and despicable Azov Nazi battalion,' as quoted by the largest Russian newspaper.
Conyers supported the idea of preventing the dangerous antiaircraft missile systems from ending up in volatile regions, according to information reproduced here.
In declarations to the diary The Washington Post and the British agency Reuters, the Republican Congressman warned of the threat represented by the mentioned military structure exhibiting Nazi symbols on their uniforms, and swastikas as logo on their weapons.
However, the US Congress accused Russia once again of destabilizing the situation in Ukraine, and proposed the disbursement of an additional 200 million dollars to finance military advisorship, logistical support, and supply of weapons to the Ukrainian army.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that there is no basis for these allegations, and they only intend to distract the international community from understanding the real causes of the Ukrainian crisis. Moscow also denied the alleged deployment of troops in the Ukrainian southeast, and cataloged those claims as false propaganda.
