Information about the use of the Ukrainian battalion "Aidar" Nazi symbolism is not true, said the Ministry of defence of Ukraine.
"in the foreign media has any Information about the fact that one of the branches of the Ukrainian army, namely the 24th individual assault battalion" Aidar ", uses Nazi symbols. Such Information is untrue and is the next step in the information war against Ukraine, "said the report, which cites RIA" Novosti ". Last week, the Ukrainian Ministry of defense eliminated an armed formation " Aidar ". On its basis will be formed separate assault battalion of the Ukrainian ground forces. This decision is due to the need to prevent abuse of the part of authorized volunteer corps, said in the Ukrainian General staff. In early February there were messages about the upcoming dissolution of the " battalion "." Aidar ", which worked notorious Hope Savchenko. Members of the battalion responded to this news by a picket near the building of the Ukrainian Ministry of defense, where they burned tires and tried to take the building office by storm. Kyiv authorities immediately told that the disbanding of the question - It's just formalities associated with changing rooms some. In addition, the government has assured that "Aidar "" further strengthened, and the Soldiers are equipped with everything necessary ". First British air force said that the Ukrainian authorities support the actual neo-Nazis, and the local media trying not to notice. Before the Russian authorities many times drew world attention on the part of neo-Nazis in the fighting in the Donbass. However, the ultra-right radicals, which, as pointed out by the Ministry of foreign Affairs, enjoy the patronage of the USA, not persecuted for their views and actions and not shy to show their ideological affiliation.
