Belgian fighters dying for Poroshenko in the notorious "Azov" battalion

The camera with a recording is reported to be taken by the militia from a battlefield, along with a Belgian passport. The news piece calls these foreigners "mercenaries", but I personally don't believe they are getting paid enough to risk their lives.

"Azov volunteer battalion" is basically a NeoNazi outfit (which, shockingly, isn't such a bad thing in this war - they seem to do a lot less pillaging than former convicts from "Aidar", for example), so the foreigners likely joined them for ideological reasons, and to get fighting experience for when they come back to Europe.

Eurointegration, eh?
