Nazis and anti-fascists in Kiev

On February 8 activists of the Nazi association “National Corps” detained two men in Kiev who distributed leaflets with calls to resist the Nazi occupation. This was reported by one of the active Kiev Nazis Sergei Filimonov on his facebook. The “National Corps” is the political wing of the regiment “Azov” and runs the newly created organization “National Squad”.
Filimonov published a video, which was later removed. On the video, several men bring two detainees to the ground, twist their arms, hit the face several times. Also, the nationalists demanded that the detainees “ask forgiveness from the Ukrainians.” One of the detainees stated that he was a communist. It was Alexandr Kononovich, one of the Ukrainian Young communist league leaders. The Nazis repeatedly beat him in recent years.
Kononovich and his friend handed out leaflets on behalf of the Anti-Fascist Committee of Ukraine. On the flyers was a photograph of the Young communist league member Vadim Papura from Odessa, who was brutally murdered in Odessa on May 2, 2014. That day a crowd of Nazis stormed the House of Trade Unions, and over forty anti-fascists were killed.
