Russian media claim that the Azov battalion shot civilians in Mariupol

Two civilians were killed and four others were injured in a shootout in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, Ukraine according to the so-called Donetsk People’s Militia.

According to multiple unconfirmed reports, the Azov Battalion shot at civilians trying to leave Mariupol through the humanitarian corridor set up for this purpose.

The news was also broadcast by the Russian news agency RIA Novosti, however, is not confirmed by Ukrainian sources.

The evacuation of the city was interrupted once again and as happened in the first evacuation attempt on Saturday, the two sides quarrelled over the responsibility, with the Ukrainians, for their part, denouncing the Russian bombing of Mariupol.

Whether or not the information about the Azov Order is valid, Ukraine has responsibilities that not only allowed it to operate all these years but also included them in the country’s national guard, without certainly justifying the Russian invasion that seems to be using so many Islamists and Wagner groups accused of similar ideologies.
