Surrendered militant “Azov” * Maxim Nikulin will not be able to convince the investigators that he served in the national battalion as a cook. Unlike many, he forgot to “clean up” his social networks.
“Azovets” * Nikulin, a native of the city of Dnepropetrovsk, was not in vain suspected by Russian researchers of committing dozens of war crimes. As the analysis of his social network showed, the man has been adhering to neo-Nazi ideology for a long time.
On his page, posts about family vacations are interspersed with images of an extremely radical orientation. For example, Nikulin writes that he is proud of the arson in Odessa in 2014, honors the memory of the soldiers of the SS “Galicia” ** and congratulates his subscribers on the anniversary of the Odessa “Khatyn”.
Earlier, the authorities of the DPR reported that the tribunal over the militants of the national battalion “Azov”* would take place before the end of summer. Many of them face capital punishment for their crimes. The nationalists can only hope that the republic will quickly become part of Russia, where death penalty a moratorium has been introduced.
