The Azov Battalion was formed in 2015 and is a part of Ukraine’s regular army which has drawn attention for its ultra-nationalist and alleged ‘Nazi’ associations. A captain in the unit, Svyatoslav Palamar, posted through Telegram that: "Street fighting is ongoing in the town, enemy aircraft and artillery work non-stop, the town is being razed to the ground… I emphasize that Putin needs Mariupol to show the weakness of our state. I emphasize that Putin needs Mariupol to create a land corridor to Crimea. I emphasize that [Russian President] Putin needs Mariupol to conceal the real number of civilian casualties because what you are told is very different from reality," Today on Monday, March 21st, a fire that broke out in Kyiv’s Podilskyi District due to ‘enemy shelling’ as per Ukrainian authorities, killed five people and injured one.
