Azov On Tour: Building Alliances Across Europe

AZOV drops by the Milan branch of Casapound Italia

CPI’s social policies, especially the economic initiative on providing every Italian family with a house (the program of interest-free social mortgage), youth engagement, particularly the activities of “Blocco Studentesco” and, last but not least, the functional of the “Pound’s House,” the 6-floor “squat” that opened the history of Casapound Italia have always been of keen interest for the AZOV movement.

The Kozatsky (Cossack) House in Kyiv, which you may see in the photos, is being designed right now namely after the “Pound’s House” in Rome. The Black Corps (Чорний Корпус) banners on the outside building wall are a hommage to the “little black men,” later the AZOV regiment, who have resided in this house as a training and mobilization center before their depature to the war-torn Donbas region. The faces of those who didn’t come back from the war you may also see in the pictures.


Thus Nazar Kravchenko, Head of Staff of the AZOV Civil Corps, eagerly seized an opportunity to visit the Milan branch of Casapound Italia, ask questions to its leader Massimo Trefiletti, talk with activists and set plans for the further exchange of experience. He didn’t return to Kyiv empty-handed: magazines, books on the history of the movement and leaflets found their place in the Kyiv headquarters of the AZOV Civil Corps and are carefully studied now by its members.

AZOV paіd a visit to Munich

As reported by German “Der III Weg” (The Third Way) party, a month ago the German wing of Reconquista, the international network in support of the Great European Reconquest launched by the metapolitical circles of the AZOV movement, visited Stepan Bandera’s grave in Munich to pay tribute to this prominent Ukrainian figure at the intersection of both frontlines and visions of the European future and send the message of European peoples’ unity facing similar challenges of the present.

The reconciling framework of the event was indeed highly important given that Ukrainian nationalists currently put a lot of effort into building bridges with Polish nationalists (mostly considering Bandera was ultimately anti-Polish), for the sake of common future in the new geopolitical block of Eastern and, at the second stage, Central European nations. Renaissance of terror-struck Europe led by the irresponsible euro-socialists is likely to start with Eastern Europe. Thus all supporters of European Reconquista are welcome to join common information resistance to both Western and especially Kremlin propagandists trying to prevent the Intermarium’s coming to life. Representatives of the German branch of Reconquista have already expressed their readiness to contribute to this cause.

Stepan Bandera, the leader of the OUN-UPA (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists and Ukrainian Insurgent Army), has become known as the very embodiment of Ukrainian struggle for an independent state. According to the report, “On 06.12.2016 representatives of the Ukrainian AZOV movement accepted the invitation of activists from Bavaria. Visiting the tomb of Stepan Bandera, after having a good meal and a lively exchange on the current events in Ukraine, was on the agenda of that eventful day. The evaluation of Bandera’s work and personality is very controversial in the today’s world. In the EU, but also in Poland, Russia and Israel, he is primarily considered a Nazi collaborator and is denounced as a war criminal. In Ukraine itself, he is, however, revered by many as a national hero.

After the German-Slavic friendship strengthened again and was delivered a short speech at the gravesite, the activists held together a minute of silence. As a Ukrainian nationalist, Bandera joined the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) quite early and soon became one of its senior executives. During World War II he fought due to disagreements initially for an independent Ukraine and against the German Wehrmacht. He was imprisoned by the German side for it, and in 1944 was released again to finally lead the Ukrainian opposition to the advance of the Red Army. Throughout his life he stayed committed to the anti-communist struggle, that’s why he has remained in the memory of many Ukrainians as a national hero. For his resistance he was murdered by the KGB agent on October 15, 1959 while in exile in Munich.

At the end of the day the activists got many new impressions and the understanding that international cooperation needs to be strengthened.”


Furthermore, as reported by the organizers, the speech at Bandera’s gravesite contained the following words: “…In life and in death, he was a tragic figure in history. We have to accept our fate and the challenge like he did. Life is a constant struggle between the light and the shadow. Let us finally unite the    Europeans and make Europe resist.”

It is in that spirit that we held our musical evening under the slogan “Culture, Community and European Solidarity.” They are important aspects of a peaceful coexistence of peoples and cornerstones of the AZOV movement. The band Zeitnah and singer Maik prepared for the audience a great evening.“

The vast majority of European peoples had bloody conflicts in the past or were brought together at the front on either of sides in two subsequent world wars. Today we should not only let the bygones be bygones or learn from the past; we should forge the common future, respect the best aspirations of our national heroes and find new modern symbols of united Europe.
