Russia's Supreme Court has designated Ukraine's Azov Regiment as a "terrorist" group. The decision may allow harsh sentences against the Azov fighters who are now Russia's prisoners of war. The Azov Regiment is a Ukrainian military unit with a far-right and nationalist background. It was the focus of Russia's claims about fascist elements in Ukraine. Many were involved in the months-long seige at a steel plant in Mariupol. Russian-backed separatists have called for them to be executed.
