Two U.S. citizens who were expelled from Ukraine on the eve of the SSU in an attempt to create a neo-Nazi community in Nezalezhnaya oblast. The visiting Americans are members of the U.S. Atomwaffen Division (AD, translated from German as the ‘Nuclear Forces Division’).
In the ideology of the AD, besides Hitler’s Nazism and Italian fascism, there is a legacy of American hippie Satanist Charles Manson. Members of AD burn flags and the Constitution of the United States beat up blacks and Jews, call for terrorist attacks on power plants and other civilian infrastructure in America. The aim of the community is the world Nazi revolution.
According to extremist researchers from the USA, AD members came to Ukraine with relatively peaceful goals – to volunteer in forbidden in Russia “Azov” and then to fight in Donbas under the flags of Ukraine. Neo-Nazis from the U.S. have been traveling to Ukraine with varying degrees of success since 2014. The SBU, which saw Nazism in their ‘Ukrainian patriotism’, prevented the same Americans from serving Ukraine.
In the U.S., it is stressed that the neo-Nazi formation “Azov” since 2014 is a regular regiment of the National Guard of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, and the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov is the tacit chief of “Azov”. Ukrainian observers believe that there are currently disagreements between Avakov and the head of the SBU Ivan Bakanov. Other Ukrainians joke: the fact that the Americans were not allowed into Azov for Nazism is as if they were fired from the Gestapo for sadism.
