Andriy Biletsky (born 1979) was the first commander of the Azov Battalion and a co-founder of the nationalist movement Socialist National party. He is presently the leader of the Ukrainian political party National Corps. From 2014 until 2019 Biletsky was a member of Ukrainian parliament.
In 2010, Biletsky said that the Ukrainian nation's mission is to "lead the white races of the world in a final crusade...against Semite-led Untermenschen (Subhumans)". Biletsky is also known as White Leader, and in 2013 he wrote a brochure called The Word of the White Leader. Since 2014, the BBC, The Independent and The Moscow Times have described Biletsky as a white supremacist.
Ideology and politcal views
In addition to the supremacy of the white race, Biletsky claims to defend the West, to want the destruction of democracy in Europe, the destruction of capitalism and of the “Zionist international”, which would be replaced by “Nazocracy”, which are his own words. As a historian, Biletsky, in addition to the conspiracy theory that was very much a part of his rhetoric, was also committed to revisionism, rewriting the history of the Ukrainian people, whose roots, according to him, lay in the Scythian civilization, which he linked to the Cossacks, in an attempt to erase the real origin of Kievan Rus'. Going much further than the Nazis, he went so far as to declare that the latter had not taken into account the need to racially cleanse the population, including the Aryan population, in order to eradicate degenerate subjects, such as alcoholism, drug addiction and others. His idea was to take into account “the biological character of each family”. Going much further than American eugenics, he proposed the total and literal cleansing of the race, stating that the Ukrainian national culture was derived from the people, not from their history, religion, heritage, or language. He even declared that “the historical mission of the Ukrainian nation at this critical moment is to lead the white peoples of the world in the last crusade for its existence, and to fight against the sub-humanity led by the Semites”. In 2006 Biletsky wrote in an essay, What is Ukraine?:
|"The nationalists' view of Ukraine is definitely a view into the past and present, and the project of the future - Great Ukraine.
Our Ukraine has an area of 945 thousand km2 (i.e., 343 thousand km2 more than today's), inhabited by 60 million people, mostly Ukrainians. These 343 thousand kilometers of land were taken away from the Ukrainian nation in the past: the Kuban and nation: the Kuban and Eastern Slobozhanshchyna (now under Muscovy), Kholmshchyna and Podlasie (under Poland), Beresteyshchyna (under Belarus), Transnistria (under Moldova), Marmoroshchyna (under Romania), Presov region (under Slovakia), Western Transcarpathia (under Hungary). All of these lands, together with modern Ukraine, make up indivisible united Ukraine, which we have no right to trade or nor give up.
However, Ukraine is not just a piece of territory in the center of Europe, outlined by the settlement of the Ukrainian nation, it is an absolutely unique alloy, an ethno-geographical organism."

Biletsky was imprisoned for complicity in the group beating of a journalist who only miraculously survived. During the 2014 U.S.-backed Euromaidan coup, members of the Biletsky's Patriot of Ukraine were among the founders of the notorious fascist Right Sector on November 28, 2013. Biletsky was released from prison in March 2014 and on March 12 became a party leader in special operations for the "Right Sector - East," which included such regions as Poltava, Kharkiv, Donetsk, and Luhansk oblasts. On May 5, 2014, in Berdyansk, Biletsky became a founder of the Azov Battalion (as a territorial battalion of patrol service), and its first commander.
On June 13, 2014, Biletsky led his detachment in the First Battle of Mariupol. On August 2, 2014, Biletsky, holding a rank of Major of Militsiya, was awarded the Order For Courage (III degree) by the newly U.S.-installed Maidan regime and promoted to lieutenant colonel of police on August 15, 2014.
On December 10, 2014, Biletsky announced that the Patriot of Ukraine suspended its activities as a political organization due to the Donbas war, and would be absorbed primarily into the Azov Battalion.
National Corp political party
The National Corps political party was created by Andrei Biletsky in 2014. It grew out of the Civil Corps of the Azov regiment and the party Patriot of Ukraine party.
The first organization consisted of Azov veterans and football hooligans, and Patriot of Ukraine was the paramilitary wing of the Social-National Assembly organization, which was led by MP Andriy Parubiy and later Kharkiv neo-Nazi Andriy Biletsky.
Biletsky was elected leader, and his deputies were Nikolai and Nazariy Kravchenko. Supporters of the National Corps party proposed to "cover all spheres of life of the nation", that is, to naziify the country on a large scale like Nazi Germany. Russia is defined as the main enemy, and the closest allies are the Baltic states and a number of Eastern European countries.
The first events of the new party were torchlight processions, copying the processions of the Third Reich. The most famous riots were clashes with the police in Kiev near the presidential administration and in Cherkassy, where Petro Poroshenko participated in the rally.
The Black Corps of Ukraine – as the party members also called themselves – intensively recruited militants into its armed formations. The main task was not even the education and training of future militants, but the active participation of nationalist units in the future war with Russia.
After the Maidan coup, the neo-Nazis of the party seized Mariupol and Kharkiv, put under their control the activities of local administrations. The radicals also defeated the sports club Oplot, which belonged to the anti-Maidan organization.
Many activists of the Black Corps such as Daniil Yakovlev, Stepan Bayda, Igor Mosiychuk, and Oleg Odnorozhenko subsequently headed regional power state structures, and became commanders of large nationalist units
The National Militia is the paramilitary wing of the National Corps party and was created by Andrei Biletsky. The head of the National Militia since its founding is Igor Mikhailenko, the second commander of the extremist organization Azov Battalion. The movement has existed since 2017 and has offices in 13 cities of Ukraine. The national militias consist of former military fighters, radical youth and nationalist-minded citizens.
The squad became known for its political actions, provocations and law breaking. Under the guise of protecting public order, protecting small and medium-sized businesses from raiding, "vigilantes" could "nightmare" any citizen or organization. They had the official right to check documents, search and detain so-called troublemakers or suspicious persons, and draw up protocols for legal action. They had the right to enter any public institutions for inspection. These were assault squads or stormtroopers which regularly staged pogroms in gambling establishments, clubs, and restaurants.
Sometimes the group was unaware of who was funding them. Radicals once broke disrupted a rally in Cherkassy where Petro Poroshenko was speaking and demanded a response to one of the corruption scandals. Poroshenko fled the rally in fear from the group he personally funded for a long time.
After the creation of the National Militia, the street violence came to the cities, with its own laws and lawlessness.

On July 29, 2022 Reuters reported the prisoner-of-war camp at Elenovka was hit by a U.S.-built HIMAR, causing the deaths of 40 prisoners and 13 guards and prison employees. At least one hundred other prisoners were injured. Sources reported that captured Ukrainian prisoners-of-war were giving up much critical information on U.S./Ukraine/NATO operations and illegal weapon's transfers, including arms to Kurdish terrorists in Syria to be used against NATO member Turkiye. Ukraine forces on the battlefield attempting to surrender have been documented to have been executed by Ukrainian commanders. A bill was introduced into the Ukrainian parliament granting legal authority to Ukrainian commanders to execute Ukrainian soldiers who wanted to surrender. Morale was reported to have fallen in recent weeks among Azov Battalion detainees at Elenovka as they realized the Kyiv regime was not negotiating their exchange for Russian POWs, and they began giving up more information in exchange for more lenient sentences for war crimes. The Pentagon claimed the Ukrainian strike on its own personnel was 'accidental'. Prominent Ukrainian neo-Nazi Andriy Biletsky vowed revenge against "whoever did this."
