In 2015 and 2016, the regiment gained attention after allegations of torture and war crimes, as well as neo-Nazi sympathies,[13] and usage of associated symbols by the regiment,[14][15][16] as seen in their logo featuring the Wolfsangel,[3] one of the Nazi symbols used by the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich.[17] Azov representatives said the symbol is an abbreviation for the slogan "National Idea" (Ukrainian: Ідея Нації, romanizedIdeya Natsiyi) and deny any connection with Nazism.[13] In March 2015, a spokesman for the regiment said around 10–20% of the unit were neo-Nazis.[18] A provision in Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018, passed by the United States Congress, blocked military aid to Azov on the grounds of its white supremacist ideology; in 2015, a similar ban on aid to the group had been overturned by Congres
