Azov Civilian Corps members march to the Security Service of Ukraine's detention facility in Kyiv to support Stanislav Krasnov, an Azov member accused of working for Russian intelligence agencies.

About 50 activists of the Azov Civilian Corps, a far-right group, held a rally on March 1 to demand the release of one of their members, Stanyslav Krasnov.

Krasnov was the leader of
Azov-Krym, a sub-unit of the corps responsible for blockading Ukrainian food
and electricity supplies to Russian-annexed Crimea.

The Security Service of
Ukraine (SBU) arrested Krasnov on Feb. 28. He is accused of illegal possession
of weapons, plotting a murder and a terrorist attack and working for Russia’s
Federal Security Service.

Azov Civilian Corps
activists claim that Kransov was tortured by SBU employees.

The corps is affiliated with the Azov volunteer regiment, which is subordinated to the Interior Ministry.
