The Mariupol siege took place during the year 2022 and pitted Russian army troops trying to take control of the city of Mariupol (in Ukraine) against the defenders of the Ukrainian army (reproduced in this exceptional Master Box model).
In mid-May, the last Ukrainian soldiers surrendered to the occupying forces of the Russian Federation, which thereafter established a local government of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.
The Azov Battalion (or Azov Assault Brigade) is, today, a unit under the Ukrainian National Guard, based in Mariupol, near the Sea of Azov (the place from which it gets its name), is composed of about 2000 volunteer fighters. The Russians have used their propaganda to repeatedly accuse this unit of being a group of ultra-nationalist and neo-fascist soldiers.
