    Recruitment efforts, aimed at attracting young people to the notorious Kiev-controlled battalions, resemble those of the Third Reich during its last days, according to the Nations Presse magazine.

    "The recruitment campaign is conducted by the far-right groups, including the Right Sector, the Patriot of Ukraine, the Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian People's Self-Defense (UNA-UNSO) and Ukraine's Ministry of Internal Affairs," the media outlet said.

    "Volunteers" are already training in many camps, located near Lviv and Kiev, according to the publication. The aim is to turn them into "seasoned fighters and killers to the benefit of globalists," Nations Presse said.

    Kiev's latest recruitment efforts are meant to compensate for the shortage of volunteers during the latest draft, according to the publication.

    "Less and less people in the "pro-European" Ukraine are willing to die for the oligarchs, Brussels and Washington. Hence, one needs to fill the gaps caused by constants failures in Donbass," Nations Presse said.

    "The "recruitment" campaign should not mislead anyone. It resembles Hitler's initiative to create Volkssturm, a national militia. … We know how it ended," the media outlet pointed out.

    The Right Sector's Ukrainian Volunteer Corps includes two battalions operating in eastern Ukraine, as well as eight reserve battalions throughout the rest of the country.

    In November 2014, the Russian Supreme Court declared Right Sector to be an extremist organization, and its activity has been banned on the territory of the Russian Federation.
