Fort Lauderdale home vandalised with swastika graffiti and references to Ukraine’s Azov battalion
A home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has been vandalised with swastika graffiti.
The perpetrators sprayed the swastikas on a garage door which had a Ukrainian flag with the words “I stand with Ukraine” on it.
Also sprayed on the door was the word “Azov”, a reference to the Ukrainian military battalion that is known to have harboured members with far-right sympathies in its ranks, and the Azov symbol.
This graffiti alludes to Russian Government propaganda that erroneously describes the Government of Ukraine – which has several members who have a Jewish background and ancestry – as being full of “Nazis” and that the country supposedly requires “denazification”.
