DoJ Hires Veteran ‘Nazi Hunter’ to Investigate War Crimes in Ukraine

Tens of thousands of neo-Nazi fighters from nearly a dozen extreme-right militias serve alongside the Ukrainian army. US Congress recognized the infamous Azov Regiment as a neo-Nazi unit in 2015. But since February 2022, Western media coverage of the ‘neo-Nazi problem’ in Ukraine has virtually disappeared, with Azov itself undergoing a rebranding.

Eli Rosenbaum, former director of the Department of Justice Office of Special Investigations, has been hired by the DoJ to investigate war crimes in Ukraine.

“To lead this effort, the Attorney General has tapped Eli Rosenbaum to serve as Counselor for War Crimes Accountability,” the DoJ said in a press release Tuesday.

Rosenbaum, 67, is a 36-year veteran of the department, and between 1994 and 2010, in his capacity as chief of the OSI, specialized in identifying, denaturalizing and deporting Nazi war criminals.

The DoJ indicated that in his new role, Rosenbaum would “coordinate efforts across the Justice Department and the federal government to hold accountable those responsible for war crimes and other atrocities in Ukraine.”  (more...)
