However, this is a fake.
Serhiy Velychko (nickname “Chile”) and Konstantin Nemychev are at large, they are in Kharkiv. Combat commanders of the Kharkiv branch of the Azov Battalion’s Territorial Defense recorded a video from Kharkiv stating that they were at large. The video was published by the leader of the National Corps, Andriy Biletsky.
