The symbol appeared in an N-TV report after kyiv troops captured a key city in the Kharkov region
A German news crew filmed Ukrainian soldiers driving a swastika armored vehicle during kyiv’s counteroffensive against Russia.
The N-TV channel on Tuesday published a short video filmed by its journalists integrated into the Ukrainian army. The report describes recent troop advances in the eastern Kharkov region, during which kyiv forces recaptured the town of Izium.
As the reporter interviews a Ukrainian soldier near a road, an armored vehicle drives by with what appears to be a white swastika painted on the side. Neither the journalist nor the channel explained the presence of the symbol.
This is not the first time Ukrainian troops have been spotted with Nazi and Nazi-style tattoos and insignia. The Azov Battalion, part of the Ukrainian National Guard, is known to have members with nationalist and neo-Nazi views in its ranks.
In May, President Vladimir Zelensky released a now-deleted photo of a Ukrainian soldier with a patch resembling the “skull’s head” (Totenkopf) symbol used by Adolf Hitler’s elite SS troops.
Photo of Zelensky guard wearing Nazi insignia is missing
A similar incident occurred last week when Zelensky’s office shared a photo of a presidential guard sporting a neo-Nazi patch. The image has since been deleted.
