Kharkiv, Ukraine

The Azov Regiment has been back in the spotlight after its role in the Donbas war in 2014. Russian media uses the group as a prime example of the need to "denazify" Ukraine, while the regiment says that Russians are "the real Nazis."

After leading the resistance of the Azovstal steel plant in the southern port city of Mariupol, new Azov troops have been training this week on the fringes of Kharkiv, a city located just 40 kilometers from the Russian border, as attacks have intensified in recent days.
