Azov Regiment

Azov originated from Biletsky’s national organization Patriot of Ukraine. Its members participated in EuroMaidan and many of them joined the volunteer battalion. The unit was also supported by members of Automaidan and ultras of FC Metalist Kharkiv. The unit was reformed into a regiment in late 2014 and received military equipment from the government of Ukraine, including T-64B1M tanks, D-30 artillery, and various LAVs.

At the start of the Russian full-scale invasion in 2022, the regiment was stationed in Mariupol.
