Russian prosecutor-general accuses Azov of killing children

The head of Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office, Igor Krasnov, has said that Azov fighters used prohibited means and methods of warfare, including the torture and killing of children.

According to Krasnov, the prosecutor’s office came to an unambiguous conclusion “about the activities of Azov as a nationalist formation based on a fascist ideology” which supports extremist organizations banned in Russia. He also said that the Russian prosecutor’s office proved that its fighters used prohibited means and methods of warfare.

“We have collected evidence of extremist and terrorist crimes committed by members of the Azov association*, including facts of participation of its trained mercenaries in military actions and providing them with weapons and ammunition. We have established facts of the use of prohibited means and methods of warfare by members of the Azov group*,” Krasnov said.

The prosecutor-general clarified that the accusation was based on the testimony of human rights activists, journalists and public figures who had been studying the activity of Azov for years. Experts presented an appropriate array of photo and video materials and eyewitness accounts of torture and killings of civilians, including young children, committed by its militants. The national formation has also been accused of deliberately attacking civilian facilities and planting mines and explosive devices in civilian areas.
