Greek Azov Battalion member killed in Mariupol

A Greek member of the Azov Battalion, who controversially spoke in the Greek Parliament, was killed in a battle near the Azofstal Steel Plant in Mariupol.

According to SKAI, Mikhail was a Deputy Commander of the Azov Battalion in Mariupol and from 2014 onwards he led a campaign against Russian-speakers.

Mikhail is said to have fallen dead after a battle that took place near Azofstal, SKAI news reported on Tuesday morning.

It is recalled that the appearance of the two soldiers in Parliament, in the context of the speech of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the Greek parliament, provoked a storm of reactions from both the opposition parties and wider Greek society.

In fact, Mikhail himself had admitted that he belonged to the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion when speaking to the Greek Parliament, which operated uncontrollably and under the auspices of the Zelensky presidency, killing Russian-speakers, including ethnic Greeks.

Only days before the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, the Azov Battalion killed a Greek and shot another two wounded only for speaking Russian, their mother tongue as in the case of most inhabitants in eastern Ukraine.

Lawmakers from the biggest parties, ruling New Democracy, SYRIZA and KINAL attended Zelensyy’s speech, while communists and the populist Greek Solution party abstained. MeRA25, Yiannis Varoufakis’s leftist party, was represented by just one lawmaker.

Although all lawmakers present hailed the Ukrainian president’s speech expressing their support for Ukraine, a video message to parliament showing a member of the Azov Battalion overshadowed the event.
