Adrian Bocquet, reveals the atrocities committed by the Azov . Regiment

 The neo-Nazi armed group operates under the Ukrainian National Guard. Europe and the western mainstream media are now covering up the fact of the existence of this Ukrainian fascism group. Bocquet spent several weeks in Ukraine, helping to deliver medical equipment and supplies to various sectors of the conflict. “There, in that place I saw war crimes. I saw a lot of war crimes," said Bocquet. 

"The only crimes I saw during my days there were committed by Ukrainian troops," continued Bocquet, speaking to Sud Radio earlier this week. Bocquet said he spent several weeks in the country helping with the delivery of medical humanitarian aid to hospitals and orphanages. But some of this aid ended up in the hands of the Ukrainian military. "I saw Russian soldiers being held captive, tied up and badly beaten..." he explained. They were taken (to the place of detention) in groups of three or four in minibuses," Bocquet said.

 “Every soldier who got out of the minibus received a Kalashnikov rifle shot in the knee. Those who claimed to be officers were shot in the head," the former French soldier added. "When I returned to France, I was very surprised by what the people who were invited to the TV show said," he continued. “There is a gulf between what I see and hear on TV and what I see on the spot. To me it's disgusting," said Bocquet.
The volunteer said he saw fighters of the Azov Regiment operating across the country, with their distinctive Nazi-style emblem patches prominent.

 "I'm very surprised that Europe is still giving weapons to a force that in my view is neo-Nazi, who has a neo-Nazi crest," Bocquet said. "We don't talk about it. This is the SS badge which is shown all over Ukraine, everywhere," Bocquet added. “No one in Ukraine is worried about this, while we are arming them with European weapons. They go and commit war crimes, I saw it myself," the Frenchman added. The former soldier said he faced a tense 10 hours in detention by the Azov militia. 

They searched and questioned him about what he was doing in the country, and he was eventually expelled from the country via Slovakia. Then Bocquet continued on to Poland, from where he boarded a plane back to France. Bocquet is the latest foreigner to be in Ukraine to expose alleged war crimes committed by Ukrainian troops. Last month, the Danish humanitarian agency in Ukraine confirmed to local media that captured Russian soldiers had been executed by Ukrainian forces. In March, a US Army veteran who volunteered to fight in Ukraine detailed his harrowing escape from the country. 

He came to be an international legion, but was left unarmed and threatened with execution.
The head of the United Nations Human Rights Oversight Mission in Ukraine, Matilda Bogner, confirmed this week they had credible evidence of torture, the mistreatment of members of the Russian military by Ukraine. The soldiers were detained without being allowed to communicate at their place of detention. Such activities violate the basic rules of international humanitarian law. Russian prosecutors have been involved in the systematic collection of evidence on alleged war crimes in Ukraine. 

The investigation has not only started since Russia and its Donbass allies began the special operation "demilitarization and de-Nazification" on February 24. The investigation goes all the way back to the spring of 2014, when Kiev began an anti-terrorist operation against the nascent Donetsk People's Republic and Lugansk. The Russian military estimates that more than 6,500 foreigners from at least 62 countries are operating across Ukraine, most of them in combat roles. As many as 400 foreign fighters are believed to be trapped in Azovstal - a large steel factory complex in the city of Mariupol on the Sea of   Azov. Russian troops are now besieging the heavily damaged industrial complex.
