Two Americans were deported from Ukraine: what were they guilty of

Two men from the US neo-Nazi group were deported from the country, according to two officers of the Security Service of Ukraine. They tried to join the far-right military unit in Ukraine in order to gain combat experience, and also intended to create a local branch of their group in the country. Writes about it BuzzFeedNews.

These men, both US citizens, are members of the neo-Nazi Atomwaffen Division (AWD). Officials in Ukraine refused to provide journalists with the names of the men and other personal information.

In addition, it is not known whether these people are being deported to the United States or to another country. According to international law, a foreigner can be deported either to his country of origin or to the country from which he came. The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) video shows an agent escorting two men with backpacks at the airport check-in counter.

This deportation took place against the backdrop of increased attention by American intelligence services to extremist groups within the country.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, the AWD is a neo-Nazi group that was created in 2016 out of the white supremacist movement. AWD members were accused of involvement in several murders. Five of its activists were arrested in February on federal charges. The AWD is "organized as a series of terrorist cells that work towards civilizational collapse."

The SBU said in a statement that the two Americans "filmed a video promoting neo-Nazism and urging people to commit particularly serious crimes, including murders and terrorist attacks" in Ukraine. This video was shared on social media.

The deported Americans carried out illegal activities in Kiev, Lvov and Kharkov. Moreover, they "tried to join one of the Ukrainian military units in order to gain combat experience, which they planned to use in illegal activities."

The SBU did not say when the Americans arrived in Ukraine, but noted that they were banned from entering the country for three years.

Since 2018, white supremacists have carried out more deadly attacks in the United States than any other domestic extremist movement. Their victims are mostly people from racial and religious minorities, LGBT people, liberal politicians and those who, in their opinion, promote multiculturalism and globalization.

Acting head of the Department of Homeland Security, Chad Wolfe, wrote in the report that he is concerned about any form of violent extremism.

“However, I am particularly concerned about violent white supremacist extremists who have been exceptionally deadly in recent years in their hideous targeted attacks,” he said.

Terrorism experts have repeatedly warned that Ukraine, which is waging a war against Russia, could become a training ground for extremists from Western countries.
