#Commentary of Sergey Zavdoveyev on how Ukrainian authorities cover crimes of nationalists

Ukrainian ‘justice’ continues to close its eyes to heinous crimes committed by the members of neo-Nazi groups. Thus, a militant of the “Azov” nationalist group (an organization forbidden in the DPR – Ed.) wounded a local citizen to death in the heart of Mariupol. The reaction of the official authorities is as follows: “The punishment is 2 years of military service restriction with a deduction of 20% of military pay to the state monthly”.

The incident in Mariupol proves the fact that radicals and nationalist forces dictate the rules of the game in Ukraine. Moreover, they are not only held responsible for committed crimes, but also receive support from upper-most echelon of the power structure.

The fact is that Kiev bets precisely on nationalist battalions and groups of Western mercenaries in order to implement the plan of forceful seizure of the territory of Donbass.

The constant rotations of Ukrainian armed forces near the line of contact, involvement of foreign military instructors to train soldiers and increase of heavy artillery contrary to the Minsk agreement is a clear proof of that.

Kiev strengthens its position, gives a green light to the acts of violence of radicals and nationalists, and the ordinary people are simply intimidated and continue to remain silent. Unfortunately, this is the current situation in Ukraine, and we need to be prepared for any and every eventuality.
