Commander of the Azov-Crimea battalion Stanislav Krasnov has been released from custody, reports the press service of the Azov battalion.

“Krasnov has been released from custody because no charges were brought against him for three days. He is more or less fine and with his brothers in arms now. That is our small victory.  We are sincerely thankful to all those who supported us,” reads a message posted by the press service.

However, it says in the message that ‘the war is not won yet as there will be a court hearing at 2 p.m. on March 2. Everyone is welcome to come to the court house located at 31a Degtyaryovskaya Street’.

It was reported earlier that Stanislav Krasnov, commander of the Azov-Crimea battalion, was taken into custody on February 28. MP Igor Moseychuk later published photos of Krasnov in which he looked badly beat up after being held up by police.
