Ukrainian death squads, like all units of similar kind trained by the United States, carry out extrajudicial killings and torture.

Ukrainian death squads have mostly been referred to as (irregular) "right-wing" militias by the commercially-controlled media, or something akin to that.[1] The Azov battalion being the one which gets most often mentioned. Since their genesis in 2014 they have strongly integrated with the regular troops of Ukraine. Members of these groups are connected to the creation of the Ukrainian kill list, which had a focus on "enemy collaborators" in the Donbas in the beginning.[2]

Official narrative

Bret Baier: I want to have you clear something up for us. And this is these reports about the Azov battalion that is said to be a Nazi affiliated organization, operating as a militia in your country, said to be committing their own atrocities. What should Americans know about that unit, about those reports?

Volodymyr Zelensky: So Azov was one of those many battalions. They are what they are. They were defending our country. [Zelensky continues to explain that these volunteer organizations were later incorporated into the military and are not a self governing structure anymore] Back in 2014 there were situations when our volunteers were encircled and some of them did violate laws, laws of Ukraine and they were actually taken to court and got prison sentences.”

Bret Baier,  Volodymyr Zelensky (2 April 2022)  [3]


It is known that foreign advisors have trained them; the training most likely included counterinsurgency tactics, possibly the application of torture techniques, and these advisors must then have turned a blind eye to ongoing or resulting war crimes.

Some members of these groups may not have taken part in criminal activity and fought as regular soldiers, however, almost every member of these groups, as well as to some extent the Ukrainian military at large, must have known that crimes of the kind (extrajudicial killings and torture) were carried out.[4]


Events in Ukraine since 2014 have to be seen in connection with Project AERODYNAMIC.

Death squad“So what the US military advisors do, is to teach the people in the country how to organize themselves, and how to carry out missions, and how to keep their mouths shut about missions, and how to be more "professional" in the jobs that the ingenious troops want to carry out anyway. [...] It wasn't quite that the American advisors said thou shall create a death squad and you gonna report to me, no. What they said was: here is how to organize yourself, to conduct missions and don't report to me, because I don't want to know it.”Christopher Simpson2014
