Members of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi Azov paramilitary battalion and their ultra-nationalist civilian sympathizers have conducted a torchlit procession in the center of the eastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol, held under the slogan “coming after you!” The gathering, called March Khorobrikh (March of the Brave) by its organizers, was arranged to mark the opening of the monument to 10th century Slavic ruler Svyatoslav.  According to its organizers, up to 5,000 ultra-nationalists marched through the central avenue of the city alongside the Azov fighters carrying burning torches and Azov flags with the battalion’s insignia – ‘Wolfsangel’ or wolf hook, which was used during WWII by two of Nazi Germany’s SS divisions.
