BBC: ‘Human Rights’ of “Azov” Neo-Nazi Volunteers Under Threat” Part II (5.12.2015)

Translator’s Note: As a British person whose grandfather’s were proud to fight alongside the USSR during WWII – against Nazi German and her fascist allies – I am disgusted that the BBC would report this situation below in a manner that ‘normalises’ Hitlerism and Neo-Nazism! The tone of this article suggests that the legal providing of ‘proof’ that supporters of Hitler today in the US, UK and EU-backed ‘Maidan’ Neo-Nazi regime HAVE NOT been convicted of committing of ‘War Crimes’ and ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ – is nothing but a bureaucratic ‘inconvenience’ – that is being used to ‘hinder’ these ‘convicted’ criminals from gaining Citizenship into the Ukraine! Of course, as far as sheer BBC hypocrisy goes – this article has turned-out to be just a foreshadowing of what was to come – with a steady stream of Ukrainian ‘War Criminals’ being paraded across our TV screens and ‘sold’ to as us fine and up-standing human-beings! The BBC should be prosecuted for this disgraceful behaviour which has betrayed the British nation and the civilised Western world! ACW (24.3.2022)

Foreigners participating in the ATO (fighting in Donbass against ethnic Russians who refuse to be apart of the Neo-Nazi ‘Maidan’ regime) as part of the (Neo-Nazi) Azov Battalion – report that they were denied Ukrainian Citizenship by the Presidential Administration of Ukraine due to the lack of proper documents. Russian Artem Yesenin, who also fights in the ranks of the Azov Battalion, spoke about this on his Facebook page. According to him, the request was submitted by more than 20 fighters and “for each there was a personal recommendation from the Minister of Internal Affairs Avakov.” However, some of them lacked certificates of non-conviction for serious crimes.

Yesenin explains that it is problematic for them to obtain a certificate of non-conviction, because most of the Russians from Azov are wanted in Russia “for their pro-Ukrainian position in the conflict in the East.” This information has not yet been commented on by the Presidential Administration. At the same time, in response to an electronic petition regarding citizenship for foreign participants in the ATO on the website of the President of Ukraine, there is a list of documents that must be submitted by “persons who have outstanding services to Ukraine.”

Among these mandatory documents is a certificate “that the person in the territory of a foreign state did not commit grave or especially grave crimes against humanity and did not commit genocide.” Recall that in October, foreigners participating in the ATO held a rally near the Presidential Administration, which was designed to draw attention to the problems with obtaining Ukrainian citizenship for such fighters.

At the end of the rally, a representative of the Presidential Administration came out to the participants, who gave contacts where they can apply for help in obtaining Ukrainian citizenship for ATO fighters. He also urged to draw up an appropriate submission addressed to the President.

Иностранцы из “Азова” пожаловались, что им не дают украинское гражданство

5 декабря 2015

Иностранцы, участвующие в АТО в составе полка “Азов”, сообщают, что в Администрации президента Украины им отказали в получении украинского гражданства из-за отсутствия надлежащих документов.

Россиянин Артем Есенин, который также воюет в рядах батальона “Азов”, рассказал об этом на своей странице в Facebook.

По его словам, запрос подавали более 20 бойцов и “на каждого была личная рекомендация министра внутренних дел Авакова”.

Однако некоторым из них не хватало справок о несудимости за тяжкие преступления.

Есенин объясняет, что получить справку о несудимости для них проблематично, ведь большинство россиян из “Азова” разыскивают в России “за проукраинскую позицию в конфликте на Востоке”.

Эту информацию пока не комментировали в Администрации президента.

В то же время в ответе на электронную петицию относительно гражданства для иностранных участников АТО на сайте президента Украины есть перечень документов, которые нужно подавать “лицам, имеющим выдающиеся заслуги перед Украиной”.

Среди этих обязательных документов и справка “о том, что лицо на территории иностранного государства не совершало тяжких или особо тяжких преступлений против человечества и не осуществляло геноцид”.

Напомним, в октябре иностранцы-участники АТО провели акцию возле Администрации президента, которая была призвана обратить внимание на проблемы с получением украинского гражданства для таких бойцов.

В конце акции к ее участникам вышел представитель Администрации президента, который передал контакты, по которым можно обращаться за помощью по оформлению украинского гражданства для бойцов АТО. Он также призвал составить соответствующее представление на имя президента.
