Belarus – Western media, even Bellingcat, failed to save the reputation of neo-Nazi soldier Protasevich | Donbass Insider
Since the arrest of Roman Protasevich in Minsk after the emergency landing of the Ryanair flight he was on, a real battle for his reputation has been launched between Belarus and the West, among other things to know whether or not he fought for the neo-Nazi battalion “Azov” in the Donbass.
On the Russian and Belarusian side, some people quickly pointed out that Roman Protasevich had fought in the neo-Nazi Azov battalion at the beginning of the conflict in Donbass. This was denied by the Western media and even by some Ukrainians, such as Andrey Biletsky, the former commander of the Azov battalion.
On his blog hosted on the Ukraïnskaya Pravda website, Biletsky explains that Protasevich was indeed with the Azov battalion in the Donbass, but allegedly as a “journalist”.
“I will immediately dot all the ‘i’s’. Yes, Roman really fought with Azov and other military units against the occupation of Ukraine. He was with us near Shirokino, where he was wounded. But his weapon as a journalist was not a machine gun, but words,” wrote Biletski.
The problem is that no matter how hard you look on the Internet, you can’t find an article from him about the Donbass war. Rather strange.
