Rebuttal of the information about Azov participation in the liberation of the hotel
Rebuttal of the information about Azov participation in the liberation of the hotel "Lybid" in Kiev
During the day, the Ukrainian media reported on the release of the hotel "Lybid" from the fighters of "Aydar" that illegally stayed there. In addition, some editors have placed the material that among the police in this action were "Azov" fighters involved.
We assure our colleagues from the Ukrainian media that the fighters of the "Azov" regiment are on the front line like all the rest of the time. Azov Regiment, as a military unit, acts only on the front lines and does not participate in any actions outside the front.
The Civil Corps Azov-Kiev was not involved in the events that happened in the hotel "Lybid", because in these days it is struggling with the illegal export of sand in Kiev, about what we informed the press.
Please check the official website of the Azov and its page in the social network or directly contact our press service before any dissemination of the news where the regiment or the Civil Corps are involved.
We warn our colleagues that unverified information about Azov affects the image of our country and often occurs to be customized provocation from abroad. We ask the Ukrainian media to responsibly treat the manifestations of an information warfare on the territory of Ukraine and refute the detected mistake.
