In “Azov” noted that Romanenko “has proved itself as an unusually professional sniper” and was repeatedly awarded marks of distinctions, including those submitted on awarding the order “For courage” III degree. Shortly before his death he received the rank of officer.
At the end of July, the Headquarters for the Operation of the United forces of Ukraine took the decision to withdraw the troops of the regiment “Azov” from the combat zone in the Donbass. It is established that fighters of a regiment refused to obey the leadership of the Armed forces of Ukraine and tried to take more advantageous positions of the 30th brigade. For this purpose “Azov” mined the road, which moved the Ukrainian security forces.
The indefinite truce in the Donbass started to operate after midnight on July 21. However, the shelling in the war zone has not stopped. The head of the General staff of the Armed forces of Ukraine Ruslan Homchak said that with the militia occur sporadic shelling, but the Ukrainian army observe the silence mode, so, from his point of view, to talk about violating agreements impossible. The self-proclaimed Republic of Donbass accused Kiev of provocation and preparation for a military solution to the conflict.
The regiment “Azov” is a volunteer unit of the National guard of Ukraine. He is known for his neo-pagan ideology.
