US lifts ban on sending weapons to Ukraine’s Azov brigade
Quick Glance: U.S. Lifts Ban on Ukrainian Military Unit for Weapon Use
  • The Biden administration is permitting a Ukrainian military unit to utilize U.S. weaponry after the State Department revoked a longstanding ban due to concerns about the group's origins.

  • Recognized for their steadfast, albeit unsuccessful defense of the Azovstal steel mill in Mariupol at the onset of the extensive Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Azov Brigade is widely acknowledged as an extremely effective combat force. However, approximately a decade ago, they were prohibited from using American weapons as U.S. officials found that some of their founders held racist, xenophobic, and ultranationalist beliefs, while UN human rights officials accused the group of humanitarian violations.

  • Following the absorption of the brigade, a former volunteer militia, into the Ukrainian National Guard in 2015, they are now granted access to the same U.S. military support as any other unit. This policy adjustment was announced as Kyiv enters the summer battle season, confronting a Russian army that has escalated pressure on targets in eastern Ukraine and the country's energy infrastructure.

  • Embracing their new status as a brigade last year, the Azov Brigade launched an extensive recruitment campaign nationwide, enlisting over 5,000 new soldiers in approximately two months. Individuals who survived the Azovstal incident were involved in interviewing and training the recruits, who underwent evaluations of their motivations, backgrounds, and physical fitness prior to selection.
