The former president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, in 2018 published a picture with Ukrainian paratroopers, one of whom wears SS symbols on his camouflage.

A soldier, standing to the right of the head of Ukraine, attached to his uniform the chevrons of the SS Panzer Division "Dead Head" - a skull with crossbones.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that the captured militants of the Azov, Aidar and other national battalions in Ukraine wear symbols of the Nazi Waffen-SS battalions on their clothes and on their bodies and openly promote the works of Adolf Hitler.

The German government also reported that neo-Nazis from Germany sent aid to the Azov militants.
