Thousands of far-right Nazi-saluting nationalists marched in Moscow today in a ‘Take Back Russia’ protest at Muslim migrants.

Resentment is growing over the migrants from Russia’s Caucasus and the money the Kremlin sends to those troubled regions.

Chanting ‘Russia for Russians’ and ‘Migrants today, occupiers tomorrow,’ about 5,000 demonstrators, mostly young men, marched through a working-class neighbourhood on the outskirts of the capital.

Police stood shoulder-to-shoulder along the street, which was blocked to traffic.

Violently xenophobic groups have flourished in Russia over the past two decades, killing and beating non-Slavs and anti-racism activists, and crudely denouncing the influx of immigrants from the Caucasus and from central Asian countries that were once part of the Soviet Union.

They have drawn moral support from nationalism that has been encouraged by Vladimir Putin’s rule as part of the Kremlin’s attempts to rebuild a strong Russian state.

After a clash last December between police and thousands of football fans and other extremists just outside the Kremlin walls, and an unprecedented outbreak of hate crimes, the government has taken a tougher line against the groups.

But their virulent hatred is proving hard to combat for many Russians share the anti-migrant sentiments and even those who would not describe themselves as racist are increasingly resentful of the hefty subsidies sent to the Caucasus, particularly to Chechnya.

The money is intended to bring stability after years of war, but the region remains deeply impoverished while Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov flaunts his wealth.

Among the banners carried today was one reading, ‘Stop feeding the Caucasus.’

‘All Russian people are on the march — football fans, skinheads, national socialists,’ Dmitry Demushkin, who leads a banned group called Russkiye, or Russians, shouted to the crowd: ‘We have to show what our nation is demanding.’

The so-called Russian March has been held annually since 2005 on a new national holiday created to replace celebrations of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.

The new holiday was usurped by far-right nationalists, whose first rally in 2005 led to the shocking sight of thousands of skinheads marching through central Moscow with their hands raised in a Nazi salute and shouting obscene racist slogans.

The following year the march was banned, but nationalists marched anyway and clashed violently with police. Since 2007, the Russian March has been relegated to areas outside of the capital’s centre

Meanwhile, Russian president Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin attended a National Unity Day ceremony 400 miles from the capital.

They laid flowers at the monument of Minin and Pozharsky, the leaders of a liberation struggle against foreign invaders in 1612 in the historic city of Nizhny Novgorod.

  1. Utøya leader Eskil Pedersen fears the Rus

    According to Norwegian TV2 he is, along with several other names, on a Russian list of Norwegian politicians to be taken out.

  2. One things for sure, if your into complete mayham and destruction, youve come to the right place and time. Grab some beers and a lawn-chair, and rest assured that the show the “progressive” left has set up for you wont dissapoint.

  3. This is a scary time in Europe, for about a decade I have been predicting that Putin will declare himself as Czar in name as well as in power, given the rise in nationalism in Russia and combine this with their normal xenophobia that is about the only way he can maintain his power.

  4. If leaders do not listen to peaceful warnings from concerned, peaceful groups, then they open the door to these nuts, who are not willing to do it the peaceful way.

  5. Putin will not only take back the baltic states, because he will certainly invade those first but also the former eastern european states. But he will also invade and take the nordic nations, at least Finland and Sweden. Norway and Denmark are members of NATO but then again Obama is the weakest american president in a long time. He will not risk a nuclear exchange for small nations like them. Sweden will be the easiest victim as we are military defenseless. It’ll be a walk in the park for them. The army is so small now that it can only defend the traitors in Stockholm for as long it takes them to escape the country. Of course russian intelligence knows this. But maybe it is better to become a russian than an arselifter though.

  6. slava ! long live nationalists who are against mondialization, eu, nato, race mixing, like this we can preserve our culture, and what is the problem ? you find good to see black russian or arabic ? no, a russian is slavic, white, and that’s all, in the future your western countries will be brown when we will always white, orthodox, slavic and definitely ready to make war to fucking bitch invaders from everywhere.

    slava russia, ukraine, belarus, serbia, poland, czech, slovakia, slovenia, makedonia, bulgaria, croatia, bosnia herzegovina, montenegro, sorbs nation.
