WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has advised Washington to pay attention to facts and react to actions by Ukrainian nationalist battalions.

"[Our] American counterparts should pay attention to facts and stop criminal indifference to the actions of the [Ukrainian] nationalist battalions, which continue to block civilians in cities, open random fire on refugees, terrorise and torture everyone who does not share their Nazi ideology", Antonov said as quoted by the Russian Embassy on Telegram.

The battalions of Ukrainian radicals were formed in 2014 and were integrated with the Ukrainian national guard, as authorities used them for terror operations in Donbass during the eight-year-long conflict in the region.
Those formations, including the infamous Azov regiment are tightly linked with the Ukrainian neo-Nazi movement, and some reports suggest that they have received assistance from the United States over the past few years.
