Yaroslav Babich, the head of the legal Department of the”Azov” regiment, was found hanged in one of the premises in the location of the “Azov” in the area of the ATO today, July 26. The Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada (former —”Azov” fighter) Dmitry Linko reported about the incident in his Facebook page: “It is Tragedy. Today the head of the legal Department of a regiment “Azov” Yaroslav Babich was found hanged. I knew Yaroslav and just can’t believe it. I give my sincere condolences to the relatives”.
His colleagues believe that there are no weighty reasons to think that the death of Babich is a murder. They note that in recent times he abused alcohol and was in depression. Babich’s body was found in one of the premises in the location of the “Azov” in the ATO zone.
Yaroslav Babych was Ukrainian nationalist; he was the head of the mobilization center of the battalion “Azov” and the head of its legal Department. From 2008 he was also the organizational lawyer of the Social-national Assembly and the ultra-right organization “Patriots of Ukraine”.
