I don't dispute your statement that the Folgore unit in Italy would take part in any fascist coup d'etat. The difference is that Ukraine has already had a coup, back in Febuary 2014. And neo-nazi paramilitaries took part in that, though they weren't then branding themselves as Azov.

Then there was the Azov behaviour at Zolote 2019, when Zelensky tried to begin a peace-making process. Public disobedience and open death threats from the Azovs forced the President to change his tune. These events were reported in the Kyiv Post and the Independent in UK, which are certainly not pro-Russian sources. Can you tell me when fascists in Italy last got away with behaviour like that?
