Ukrainian Nazi Azov Battalion setting up offensive positions in civilian areas and using women, children as ‘human shields
As Russia’s invasion intensifies, countless Ukrainians are being displaced from their homes and fleeing for their lives, but, according to some of them, it’s not necessarily just Russia that they are worried about. It’s their own army. No one is saying that these people wouldn’t be in danger if Putin had not decided to make his move into Ukraine, but nobody anticipated that Zelensky’s armed forces would be the ones terrorizing innocent civilians and refusing to allow them to flee the war zone, and that’s allegedly exactly what they are doing, some refugees have claimed. Dozens of shocking video testimonials have emerged over the past few days alleging that Ukrainian soldiers, including the Nazi-aligned Azov Battalion, have been setting up offensive military positions within civilian areas, like neighborhoods and apartment buildings, to launch attacks on Russian troops – essentially using the citizens, including women and children, as “human shields” by guaranteeing return fire will hit populated areas. This deplorable tactic is the same one that was used by Jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan that results in unnecessary civilian casualties. Ukrainian refugees also claimed that the reports of safe passage zones are all a lie. Apparently, Zelensky’s forces have stopped providing transportation out of the country.
Ironically, it’s actually the Russians who are providing more humanitarian assistance than the Ukrainian troops, according to some who finally made it out of the conflict zone. There were also some refugees who claimed that Ukrainian troops were threatening to shoot anyone who attempted to flee the area, which, according to two separate witness accounts, has already begun happening. However, this is still unconfirmed. If Ukrainian armed forces are truly doing this to their own people, then Zelensky needs to be questioned about “war crimes” right along with Putin.
