Since 2004, Russia has been uniting and financing neo-Nazi and right-wing movements around the world: Serbia has been sending fighters for nine years
Since 2004, Russia has been secretly joining and funding neo-Nazi and far-right movements around the world, a former Chicago Police Department (CPD) detective who investigates far-right extremism, gang culture, disinformation, tweeted.
A social network profile under the name Donbas Samizdat (Samizdat) claims that these marginal groups, which follow the neo-Eurasian strategy popularised by Aleksandar Dugin (an ultra-nationalist Russian ideologue who is said to have had a major influence on Vladimir Putin and who, among other things, has long advocated the unification of the Russian-speaking area and other territories into a vast new Russian empire, in which he wants to include Ukraine), are causing divisions, spreading lies, and undermining societies.
In 2015, Dmitry Rogozin’s Rodin Party and neo-Nazis from the Russian imperialist movement organised a far-right conference with the main aim of propagating the Russian narrative in Ukraine and recruiting a coalition of volunteers to send to the Donbas, which was also reported the same year by the Russian research portal Meduza under the headline European far right flocks to Russia International Conservative Forum in St Petersburg (European far right flocks to Russia International Conservative Forum in St Petersburg).
Shortly afterwards, it continues, Russia founded the World National Conservative Movement (VNCM), a coalition of more than 70 organisations and leaders of neo-Nazi and far-right political groups from all over the world, preaching a “new conservatism”, as mentioned on the website interpretermag.com, supported by the Free Russia Foundation.
Russian ortho-fascist imperialism is, as they point out, an evolution of the Russian neo-Nazi movement. The nationalism of Vladislav Surkov (a Russian politician who wielded great influence in the Kremlin and was placed under house arrest last year) has replaced swastikas with more palatable Russian symbols and crosses to disguise Russia’s sinister geopolitical ambitions as the “new conservatism” splcenter.or wrote about, this former CPD detective points out.
The Russian Imperial Movement (RIM) and their paramilitary wing, the Imperial Legion, have started terrorist training camps for neo-Nazis and white supremacists all over the world, and far-right violence all over the world originates from their training camps, as revealed last year in an article on discovernews .org. RIM was designated a terrorist organisation in 2020, the New York Times wrote in an article headlined “U.S. Will Give Terrorist Label to White Supremacist Group for First Time”.
Their essential partner is the neo-Nazis in Slovakia, wrote lansinginstitute.org in January 2021. It is estimated that more than 500 extremists have received direct training through RIM, including GRU and FSB Spetsnaz paramilitary training. They are also trained in subversion and how to stage a coup and incite unrest, he said, adding that German neo-Nazis have also received training through RIM, as vice.com noted three years ago.
Despite the propaganda, trtworld.com wrote, and the false stories that “the CIA is sending American neo-Nazis to fight for Azov,” the reality is that the US far right and neo-Nazis are overwhelmingly repeating Russia’s anti-Western rhetoric and supporting militants into the Donbas.
The terrorist attacks in Sweden, the detective points out, are also linked to Russian-trained neo-Nazis, some of whom have also fought in the Donbas, as the Swedish portal thelocal.se reported last year.
He goes on to talk about Russia’s closest supporters in the “de-Nazification” of Ukraine and street protests against the “evil” NATO, starting with Bulgaria, where the Ataka and Vazrazdana (Revival) movements are active.
Golden Dawn is from Greece, which before 2014 was actually allied with Ukraine’s Svoboda, while Svoboda members were anti-NATO.
Jobbick from Hungary was also part of the VNCM. The Nordic Resistance of Sweden is behind the Russian “denazification”. The NPD and Die Russlanddeutschen Konservativen are from Germany, while the Chetniks are from Serbia, judging by this Twitter profile, who in the initial conflict in 2014 had the Jovan Šević battalion (a serbian officer who led the migration of Serbs from Austria in the middle of the 18th century).
Serbia, they point out, has been sending fighters secretly for nine years, but now more and more openly, as detektor.ba wrote about in 2019. Russia is starting to brainwash serbian children from the age of 17. There are also Serbian neo-Nazis from Combat-18 (a neo-Nazi terrorist organisation founded in 1992 in the UK, from where it spread around the world), some trained in Russia.
Then, the Falanga from Poland is also part of the VNCM, as is the Slovene Pospolitost (Slovak Community) from Slovakia. The huge pro-Russian/pro-Stalin Italian organisation Forca Nuova has several members who have been fighting for the Wagner paramilitary group in the Donbas since 2014.
France’s Reunovoue Francies was also a member of the Russian coalition in 2015.
The Syrian Social Nationalist Party or SSNP, a Syrian nationalist party active in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine, founded in 1932, is also a member of the Russian coalition.
Accion Identitaria, a neo-Nazi organisation from Chile, is a member of the VNCM. Then, the Workers’ Party of Social Justice (DSSS) and the Popular Resistance from the Czech Republic are members of the VNCM, Noua Dreapta, which operates in Romania and Moldova, and ELAM from Cyprus are all part of the Russian New National Conservatism coalition. With them are the pro-Russian neo-Nazis Democracia Nacional (DN) from Spain./The Geopost/
