Neo-Nazis conduct raids in Kharkov: Russian MoD
The punitive raids being conducted in the Kharkov region were being conducted along with Ukrainian security officials.
Neo-Nazis are conducting punitive raids in the Kharkov region, hunting down pro-Russian individuals, capturing them, and transporting them to unknown destinations, according to the chief of the Russian National Defense Control Center, Col. Gen. Mikhail Mizintsev, on Tuesday.
According to Mizintsev, "In the Kharkiv region, neo-Nazis, together with members of the Security Service of Ukraine, are conducting punitive raids in order to check local residents for signs of pro-Russian views, as well as the facts of transferring any information to Russian military personnel and representatives of the people's militia of the Republics of Donbass."
He stated that all of the suspects had been detained under the Criminal Code of Ukraine's article "collaborationism" and brought away to an unknown destination.
Mizintsev described the Kiev authorities' actions as illegal, adding that they were intended to intimidate Ukrainian civilians in order to conceal the country's current disastrous position. According to Mizintsev, this scenario is the result of official Kiev's destructive strategy, and the criminal activities of Kiev authorities attest to the Kiev authorities' full disregard for the plight of millions of Ukrainians.
