The US Congress has forbidden to provide assistance to the regiment «Azov»

The law on budget of the United States, which provides $620,7 million for Ukraine contains a clause prohibiting the granting of any assistance regiment «Azov». It is reported by the American edition of the Hill.

It is noted that this prohibition was contained in the draft budget of the United States for the previous three years, but in the final version it was removed.

This year, the law stipulates that the allocated funds cannot be used for the «transfer of arms, training or other assistance to the battalion «Azov».

Us Congressman Ro Hahn said that «the idea of white supremacist and neo-Nazis are unacceptable and have no place in our world.»

«I am very pleased that the recently enacted comprehensive law prohibits the US to supply weapons and train the neo-Nazi Azov battalion, which is fighting in Ukraine», – he added.

The publication notes that it is unknown whether «Azov» American aid before.

Special purpose battalion «Azov» was formed in may 2014 in Mariupol. In November of the same year, the battalion was absorbed into the structure of the national guard. Later the unit was expanded to a regiment. 12 Oct «Azov» announced the creation of the political party «national body».
