The National Guard of Ukraine prisoner of war told about the crimes of «Azov» in Mariupol
The serviceman reported that population in Mariupol serves as a «human shield» for nationalists, they also use civilian facilities as strongholds.
«They ordered not to let civilians out. Don’t let people out. We saw these cars, crowds. The inscriptions “children”, “civilians”. White flags. Everyone just fled. They knew what would happen. Everyone knew,» he said.
The «Azov» militants also influenced the militants of the National Guard of Ukraine, urging them to fight the Russians to the end, talking about the superiority over the Russians.
Yevgeny also told that he was forced to form 3 platoons, being a lieutenant. Then, the Azov command ordered them to dig trenches right in the cemetery under threats of execution. And after, the Azov fighters allegedly by mistake began to attack the positions with mortars and KPV-14.5 heavy machine gun installed on an APC
