This is a follow-up translation of an article telling of what the people of Mariupol faced at the hands of the Azov neo-Nazis – the very same so vehemently supported by the official Germany, Britain, Latvia, and the rest of the “collective West”. But what to expect if NATO was training these monsters! According to the article from the 15th of March “This is what we were taught in NATO.” How the Ukrainian army is fighting: “And during interrogations, the captured servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine confess: NATO instructors taught them to hide military equipment in residential areas and hide behind civilians. And this is not surprising — the North Atlantic Alliance is used to fighting in distant countries, ignoring civilian casualties.”

“A swastika is burned into her chest”: what does Azov leave behind in Mariupol
Soldiers check men for nationalist tattoos – RIA Novosti, 1920, 03/28/2022
DNR, 28 Mar — RIA Novosti, Viktor Zvantsev. Used syringes, pills scattered on the floor and a mutilated corpse of a woman — such a picture was seen by the fighters of the People’s Militia of the DPR in the basement of an elementary school in Mariupol, recaptured from the national battalion “Azov”. The other day, the nationalists were pushed back several blocks to the south, artillery duels continue there. What is happening in the courtyards of residential buildings on the firing line and how the “Azovites” behave is in this RIA Novosti report.
“Covered us with his body”
Zelinsky Street is shot through by snipers, so you need to move between houses in short dashes. The “One—eyed” work cleanly, – explains a soldier of the DPR army with the call sign “White2. — Three of our people were removed. Moreover, they aim not only at people in uniform, but also at civilians.”
“White” has been at the front since 2014. He fought at the Saur-Grave, remembers the Debaltsevo cauldron, and many other operations. He commands a platoon in which both experienced soldiers and recruits called up at the end of February are fighting. In Mariupol, the unit held the defence for three days in a surrounded nine-story building until the Russian troops arrived to help.
“This is the key to victory.” The turning point of the Russian special operation
“The battles are hard, the “Azov” rarely surrender,” the fighter continues. — Those who managed to survive are trying to escape. There is no other option. After all, they are fighting not so much for an idea as for money. Very big money. And their captivity, to put it mildly, is not welcome.”
The sidewalk, strewn with broken glass, shell fragments, burnt—out cars and the bodies of the Ukrainian nationalists who there was yet not time to remove – this is how the block looks a few hundred meters from the Azov positions. Mir Street (Peace Street): on the one side are the DPR servicemen, on the other is the enemy.

There is a mass grave now in Victory Park, where people once walked in the evenings and honoured veterans of the Great Patriotic War. There is a burnt—out tank on the site where the attractions were. Mines periodically fall here and in the surrounding houses. Locals recall how the other day the nationalists killed two dozen people at once with an accurate hit in a high-rise building. There are also losses in the Republican army.
“One of the guys literally sacrificed himself,” says a resident of the neighbouring “panel” block Vika. — When there was a whistle in the air, he grabbed the child in his arms, threw him into the entrance, then pushed me. And a second later he collapsed on the asphalt.”
The fighter died on the spot from shrapnel wounds. The body has not been retrieved still – because of the continuous shelling, it is impossible to approach the house.
