Ukrainian snipers in the Azov battalion claim they have killed 300 Russian troops since the start of the war.
One member of the group, who works as part of a sniper team piloting a reconnaissance drone said: “I joined Azov because it’s the best unit now in Ukraine, they are the most highly motivated.
“We don’t have any ideology, as the Russian propaganda says.
“We’re just typical soldiers protecting our homeland.”
However, the battalion say they need more weapons with one member saying: “Our soldiers are growing in motivation and proficiency, but we need more long-range weapons to support their efforts.”
