According to unverified reports, neo-Nazi groups in Ukraine captured and brutally tortured Maxim Ryndovsky, a famous MMA fighter who is a citizen of Ukraine. Allegedly, Ryndovsky trained with “Akhmat” which is a Chechen club that has been accused of providing funds and military equipment to Russia.
Reportedly, the alleged torture was captured on video and went viral on various social media platforms. Ryndovsky was labeled a traitor for visiting the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) and the Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR) while training with the Chechen MMA team.
Several proxy neo-Nazi groups, like the Azov Battalion, have been aided by U.S. weaponry, training, and funding, going back to the regime change of 2014. The Azov Battalion, as well as several other explicitly neo-nazi groups, have been used by the west as proxy forces against Russia, as U.S. and NATO seek to expand their military might throughout the region.
The Azov Battalion, who has been propped up by the U.S. since 2014, also allegedly crucified a Russian loyalist on video, gagging him, and nailing him to a cross, before setting him on fire.
