BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 A.M.) – The far-right nationalist Azov Battalion held a military parade in central Mariupol, eastern Ukraine, on Saturday, celebrating the fourth anniversary of reclaiming territory from anti-government forces, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.
The founder of the Azov Battalion Andrei Biletsky addressed to the hundreds of residents, gathered at the Freedom Square for the ‘Liberated Mariupol’ festival.
“The fate of Donetsk, Gorlovka, Lugansk, Novoazovsk will be solved by victories of the Ukrainian army. Our country has only two ways or to break under external pressure, surrender their positions step by step, reconcile with this and then everyone will wipe feet on us or fight and win,” said Biletsky.
