Neo-Nazis on The March In Moscow
November 5, 2007
Thousands of Russian neo-Nazis marched through Moscow on National Unity Day this weekend, joined by pensioners, students and families. Experts believe Russia’s far right gives President Vladimir Putin a welcome justification for his authoritarian political style.
Russian [boneheads], hooligans, nationalists, fascists and racists gathered on Moscow’s Kutosovsky Prospect to mark National Unity Day on Sunday. They waved flags as they marched in single file along the banks of the Moskva River and to the Ukraina Hotel, across from the White House, the seat of Russia’s government.
“Russia for Russians!” the demonstrators shouted in unison, followed by slogans such as “For a Slavic, Russian nation!” or “Slavic, Russian, Powerful!” The demonstrators stretched out their arms in the Hitler salute between slogans. Their loud shouts of “Slavic Russia!” were followed by the sound of drum rolls…
With a nod and a wink from the Russian state. An indication of the political degeneracy of Russian neo-Nazis is given by the fact Hitler’s contempt for the Slavs of Eastern Europe fails to prevent them from adopting his Party’s symbology. Meanwhile, this coming weekend sees Czech neo-Nazis assembling in Prague to commemorate Pogromnacht (aka Kristallnacht) by marching through the (former) Jewish quarter of the city… well, maybe.
