no nazi’s anymore

Azov Battalion drops neo-Nazi symbol exploited by Russian propagandists

The new insignia features a golden trident, the Ukrainian national symbol worn by other regiments

The Azov Battalion has removed a neo-Nazi symbol from its insignia that has helped perpetuate Russian propaganda about Ukraine being in the grip of far-right nationalism.

At the unveiling of a new special forces unit in Kharkiv, patches handed to soldiers did not feature the wolfsangel, a medieval German symbol that was adopted by the Nazis and which has been used by the battalion since 2014.
