Battle For Avdeevka Destroyed Glory Of Ukrainian Nazi Azov Fighters

Click to see full-size image

The Ukrainian fortress of Avdiivka officially fell on the night of February 17, when the Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief Syrsky announced the withdrawal of troops to “new prepared defense lines.” In fact, the uncontrolled mass escape of Ukrainian units from the city began a few days earlier, during which the Ukrainian army suffered heavy losses. The Ukrainian military abandoned the wounded, dead and equipment. Hundreds of Ukrainian servicemen were captured by the Russian military.

Ukrainian and Russian military experts largely blamed the notorious 3rd Separate Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the failure of the Ukrainian defense. The unit was urgently transferred to the city to stop its encirclement several days before the Ukrainian defeat.

The 3rd Separate Assault Brigade was created on the ruins of the neo-Nazi Azov battalion and mainly included its veterans. These militants distinguished themselves by their particular cruelty and extremely high level of motivation to fight against the Russians, which were proved both during the assault on Mariupol and later in Artemovsk. After the surrender of Azov in Azovstal, and in the course of other battles, many of its members ended up in Russian captivity and most have already been locked up in Russian prisons for numerous war crimes, mainly against civilians.

The glory of the unit and the exchange of its leaders through the Turkish mediation allowed to form the 3rd Assault Assault Brigade, which reunited the ardent Nazis. Since December last year, the unit has been staying in the rear areas in Kramatorsk. The brigade inherited its own system of recruiting and training from the Azov Nazi Battalion, which made it one of the most effective and combat-ready formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. For months, its military personnel were engaged in training, recruiting of new fighters and reportedly re-equipping with Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and other Western equipment.

 

 

Kiev assessed this unit as one of the most trained for the battles in Avdeevka, with the most relevant experience in conducting combat operations in similar urban conditions, given its experience in Mariupol and Artemovsk; but the glory of Azov was destroyed in Avdeevka.

On February 13, CNN became the first to report about the transfer of the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade to Avdeevka. The deployment itself likely took place the day before. On February 15, official sources of the Brigade confirmed its deployment in Avdeevka.

The first obituaries outrun the official claims. Entering the battle right off the bat, the brigade suffered heavy losses. One of the heavy losses for the unit was the death of the captain of the unit, the famous Ukrainian “hero” and ardent Nazi Andrei Iskra, on February 14. Battle-hardened, he lasted only two days in Avdeevka.

Immediately after the transfer to the cauldron, the military personnel of the Brigade, including its commanders, complained about the critical situation of the Ukrainian garrison. They stated that “the fighting in Avdiivka is heavier than in the encircled Bakhmut.” The crying of a well-known unit was heard by the Ukrainian public and foreign MSM, who abruptly changed their messages about the situation in the city from positive to sharply negative, and Ukrainians began to massively demand the withdrawal of Ukrainian soldiers on the social networks. Unfortunately, the Ukrainian command did not care much about their complaints.

 

 

As the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade officially stated, its main task was to strengthen the Ukrainian troops in Avdoovka. In fact, the transfer of the unit had two main tactical tasks. The first task was to stop the breakthrough of Russian stormtroopers in the city center. In order to perform this task, part of the Brigade engaged in battle with the advancing Russian forces in the area of the local railway station. Together with the former fighters of the Azov Battalion, the defense of the railway station was held by foreign “mercenaries”, including regular military personnel from Canada, who were transferred to the “elite” unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

It was there that the commander of the company of the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade was captured. Russian soldiers found him hiding in a bunker at the railway station. He chose to save his life and surrendered.

 

 

The second task for reinforcements from the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade was to prevent Russian forces from the encirclement of the city, shackling them in battles on the outskirts. Elite fighters had to become a shield against the Russian pincer around Avdeevka, which should ensure the safe exit of the entire Ukrainian garrison from the destroyed city in order to preserve the combat capability of Ukrainian units for further battles.

But the former Azov militants did not cope with any of the tasks set. A few days before the official recognition of the Ukrainian defeat, Russian units managed to break through the Ukrainian defenses on both the southern and northern outskirts, forcing the Ukrainian garrison to flee from their positions in the city in an attempt to avoid complete encirclement.

 

 

Already on February 16, instead of deterring the Russian offensive, the soldiers of the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade filmed videos in the basement of the Coke Plant, where the remnants of the “elite” brigade who survived the urban battles hid.

The Brigade complained that about 60 Russian aerial bombs fell on them per day, they were constantly shelled with artillery and MLRS, and they were continuously stormed.

“Does it remind you of anything?” the press service of the unit asked its audience online, recalling the siege of Azovstal in Mariupol.

Finally, the siege of the Coke Plant did not happen. Immediately after the announcement of the defeat in Avdeevka on February 17, the Brigade fled from this fortified area under Russian fire.

 

 

Not everyone managed to escape. During the mop up operation of the territory of the plant, part of the Brigade was captured by the Russian army. According to reports, some of the Ukrainian Nazis were captured for the second time. They already were in Russian captivity, including after the fighting for Mariupol.

The Russian side is likely to soon share the footage of the interrogations of unlucky Nazis from the former Azov.

And so was ruined the glory of one of the most ardent units of the Ukrainian Nazis, Azov Battalion, which, despite all the transformations, failed to defeat the Russian army.

would it be surprising if the pentagram wearer was involved in some seriously nefarious garbage in the middle of a war zone? i wonder what killed them, because apparently it happened before the snow on the ground, like it’s around freezing temps, with blood on mud and then snow. must’ve been a while, or warm bodies would’ve melted the snow relative to the ground. my hunch is that god delivered them some merciful comeuppance.

so how is it that many of these guys ended up back fighting after russia had captured them ??? one of the biggest mistakes was that russia did not publicly proclaim court martial for azov members and foreign mercenaries look closely and you see american insignia

from the deal for the final surrender of azovstal in mariupol in may 2022. turkey promised to take the azov prisoners instead of russia as part of the deal. but last last year, 2023, turkey let them go.

avdeevka battle was faster than mariupol and bakhmut, reflecting weakening ukraine forces; ammo shortages, no air defense, less experienced fighters, less moral and stronger russia forces, mainly air power and better battle planning and coordination. there is nothing that changes these trends.

in retreat they are doing a nazi salute, and in reality whatever they’re saluting is immaterial.

that salute is their paradoxical deference to the wef and the elites who contrived this crisis.

we live in such a strange reality where nationalists of a country are giving their lives for the thing they should oppose the most.

they were used to taking out children, elderly, women and infirm. reminds me of 2014 and the stories of them running, whenever they saw a uniform for the other side. i now have an image of them fleeing avdeevka, wearing stilletos, waving a rainbow banner, not being able to recognise the colour white and their bodies littering the streets. allegedly 1500 taken out, whilst training and how many taken out in the withdrawal of avdeevka? how many left?

stopthewarnow

this description of the defensive strategy means good news for rf. 1. the reinforcements were deployed at the last moment when it was too late. there must be holes now in other areas because they waited so long. 2. there is total confusion in the chain of command and no working strategy or cohesion. 3. the disorderly retreat from the city must have negative impact on the morale of the troops.

conclusion: the implosion of the front comes near. my take: start probing attacks on 5 weak areas on the same moment with robotic vehicles, air support, deception and limited special forces. just see where the front breaks.
