As I’ve documented before (here, here, here) Russia has many allies among nationalist movements in the west. Here are stories I’ve encountered from Nationalists / Radical Right people which call out Russia’s hypocrisy.
Alternative Right: THE BOUNDLESS INSANITY OF NEO-RUSSIAN IMPERIALISM by Duns Scotus
But behind this element of geopolitical borderlessness, coded by Putinists and Duginists as “creation of Russian World” or “Eurasianism,” there is also the greater borderlessness of the Russian imperialist spirit, which melds together ideologies, races, religions, and even disparate eras to create a great imperialist continuum that projects Russia as the “Third Rome” (one that embraces the other two) and uses phrases like “From Lisbon to Vladivostok” and “Berlin-Moscow-Beijing Axis.” Yes, for the Neo-Russian Imperialist spirit, Putin, Stalin, Tsar Nicholas, and even Julius Caesar all stand shoulder-to-shoulder, the ideological borders between them swept away as surely as the forgotten boundary markers between Muscovy and the Golden Horde or Kievan Russ and the Kipchaks have been swept away.
Such temporal, spatial, and ideological borderlessness is seen as a font of spiritual strength. For the contemporary Russian imperialist, all ideology – whether that of Heidegger, Marx, or even the original “mad monk” Philotheus of Pskov, with his “prophecy” of the all-conquering Third Rome – are mere grist for the mill of a transcendent megalomaniac vision. Ideological contradictions are for the small minds of Western logicians, not for the great “free” tyrants of the Eurasian steppes!
Alternative Right: Interview with Olena Semenyaka of the Azov Regiment.
REAL RUSSIA VS. THE KREMLIN STATE
The core of the Azov Regiment is represented by one of the oldest Ukrainian paramilitary nationalist formations, “Patriots of Ukraine” and its ideological referee “Social-National Assembly.” When the Maidan protests started, its leadership – Andriy Biletsky and Oleg Odnorozhenko – were jailed by the regime of Victor Yanukovych. However, the members of Patriots of Ukraine were among the most well-prepared street fighters, and took an active part in the clashes with the police. One of the victories of Maidan was the release of all political prisoners, including leading activists of this organization, who immediately led the passionate youth who gathered around them and formed the Black Corps – a unit of fighters in black who started a guerilla struggle against the pro-Russian separatists and occupiers, often by improvised means or using arms seized in the battle. . . .
Our role as the cradle of the Slavic world is denigrated as a Western “project” invented for the sake of undermining the might of Russia. So, as far as you see, the fantasies about “doing dirty work” perfectly fit the Kremlin’s anti-Ukrainian mythology.
Besides, it’s really symptomatic that modern right-wingers have completely forgotten about the purely decorative national character of Bolshevism, and have helped one of the co-founders of the New World Order – the Russian Federation as a successor state of the USSR – to divide up the largest European country that is undergoing a national renaissance. Luckily, a lot of European countries that belong to the traditional geopolitical axis – Lithuania, Poland, Georgia, and even supposedly Russia-dependent Belarus, and several others – have been helping us to restore our territorial integrity and political sovereignty, not to mention those Russian volunteers who view Ukraine as the original Rus’ and hope to defeat the Kremlin’s Golden Horde with its help in order to release their native country. . . .
Finally, I would like to draw your attention to the recent appeal to European nationalist organizations by the biggest Russian right-wing organization – the ethnopolitical association “Russians” headed by Dmitry Dyomushkin. In this appeal its Political Council urges right-wingers not to betray nationalist solidarity and not to support Putin. Dyomushkin, who recently was searched by the FSB for the eighth time, explained that currently the Russian government even detains nationalists who are loyal to the regime (“one has to love Putin only with permission”).
Appeal of Russian nationalists to European (white) nationalist (right) and conservative organizations
Dear colleagues! The future of European nations and European civilization depends from you. The problems that we face are similar: the hordes of immigrants from Third World countries, displacing indigenous people, Islamization, degradation, the retention of power left (cultural Marxists, internationalists, neo-Bolsheviks, and so on.) This situation does not allow health national forces to take adequate measures against these problems. Propaganda of nationalism and racial identity is banned in most European countries.
However, every European nation has a unique situation due to various domestic factors. Sometimes, when it has viewed from aside it is difficult to see the real content of events in the other country.
We have learned that the hostile forces to the Russian people spend a great job of disinformation European nationalists, regarding the situation in Russia, for you to lobby for their interests. This situation is not acceptable, and today we want to convey to every European nationalist that Putin and his government – they are enemies of the Russian people, Putin &Co are robing and destroying Russia, by set up “iron hand” regime from one side and militant internationalism of neo-Bolshevism from the other side.
In the beginning with we would like to remind you that it was one of the initiatives of the Russian Federation in November 2014 by which the Committee of UN General Assembly adopted a resolution requesting from countries to take more effective measures to combat nationalism and other forms of expression of national and racial identity of white people. Hence Putin is the initiator of the next wave of persecution of white nationalists throughout the world. . . .
The regime of V. Putin sends to prison all dissenters. More than 90% of convicted on political charges were Russian nationalists. For 2013, our experts have estimated that the number of nationalists faced with political repression in the form of criminal cases exceeded 2,000 people, among them – the initiator of the campaign for the resignation of Putin, one of the leaders of the Association of Russian – Alexander Belov. . . .
We would like to dispel the lies of the Russian Federation as a country of the winning conservative values. According to Deputy Interior Minister Igor Zubov – in Russia more than a million people are involved in prostitution, of which at least 130,000 are minors (2013). Annually from alcoholism in Russia kills 1.5 million people (World Health Organization). Daily detected 200 cases of HIV infection by the end of 2015, the number of diagnosed cases can reach one million people. 8 million. People use drugs. RF ranked first among teenage suicides in the world, the death rate among teenagers in Russia is three times higher than in European countries. For 2014 closed 185 branches and universities. Laid off more than 8,000 physicians (in this case, that 45% of the population has chronic diseases, according to the Ministry of Health). Health expenditure in 2015 will be reduced by 20% (Ministry of Finance). . . .
The war against the Russian nation in the East of Ukraine. War with Ukraine is presented as an act of patriotism, aimed at uniting the Russian nation. In fact, all is just the opposite. Putin’s actions in Ukraine led to the destruction of Russian enclaves and rapid Ukrainianization Russian living in the main part of Ukraine (Russian, which is too hard to live with the stigma of “supporter separatists, terrorists and occupiers” – because it is so now, many are looking to the representatives of our nation living in Ukraine).
Putin Targets All Russian Nationalists He Doesn’t Control, Dyomushkin Says
Dmitry Dyomushkin, a Russian nationalist who heads the “Russians” ethno-political movement, who says that now one can love the powers that be only in the manner that the powers themselves want.
The Kremlin is so obsessed with control, he told two Kavkazskaya Politika interviewers, that it is now persecuting with searches and arrests even those who support it but who are not under its total and complete control, actions which in his view undermine the interests of the state and of Russia as a whole.
At the present time, Dyomushkin says, “the Kremlin simply persecutes nationalists, and the force structures threaten them independent of the position of the nationalist on any particular question [such as Ukraine]. You can even glorify Putin, but this is no guarantee that you won’t be arrested or treated illegally. One must love Putin only with permission.”
The Russian nationalist activist was recently subjected to the eighth search of his residence and person by the security agencies, one that involved 12 officers and lasted seven hours. They found nothing because “what could be found after seven earlier searches had taken place?” It was simply a form of harassment, he says.
Freedom for Aleksandr Belov! Kremlin continue repressions against Russian nationalists
The Kremlin regime continues repressions against Russian nationalists.
On May 28 a court hearing against Russian nationalist Alexandr Belov took place in the Khamovniki District Court of Moscow. Russian authorities accuse him of undermining the foundations of the Eurasian Union
Imprisoned Russian Nationalist Claims FSB Jailed Him Because He Refused to Commit ‘Terrorism’
Imprisoned “Russian March” organizer Aleksandr Belov (Potkin), former head of the Movement Against Illegal Immigration has given a sensational interview made by his supporters to prominent Russian blogger Oleg Kashin, claiming that Russian intelligence officers began persecuting him after he refused their demand to collaborate with them in corporate raids and even terrorism and murder in Ukraine, slon.ru reports.
There is a self described “Russian nationalist” fighting with Right Sector:
Novorussia, Atlanticists, And Ukrainian Nationalists
Here I will demonstrate that the nascent Russian imperial state and their Novorussian proxies are not friends or allies of European Nationalists or of “far-right” ideology.
I will further refute the notion that the Ukrainian Nationalists and patriots are somehow all Jews, or supporters of Zionism, or desirous of union with the Atlanticist powers.
