    Russian Nationalists To Stage Marches To Mark Unity Day Holiday

    Russian Nationalists To Stage Marches To Mark Unity Day Holiday


    Russian nationalists giving the Nazi salute in Moscow. Nationalism is encouraged by the Putin regime.

    11/4/19
    Nationalist groups are set to hold demonstrations in Moscow and a handful of other Russian cities, as the country marks the annual National Unity Day holiday. The holiday, held November 4, was established in 2005 by President Vladimir Putin as a replacement for Soviet-era commemorations of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. Russian officials have tried to promote the holiday, which formally marks a battlefield victory over Polish forces in 1612, as a way to bolster patriotism. Right-wing, nationalist, and monarchist groups have used the day to stage xenophobic and anti-immigrant marches, and past holidays have seen scuffles between protesters and riot police.

    In Moscow, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin for the first time refused to issue a permit to organizers of the nationalist "Russian March." His office issued a permit for a demonstration in the same location but under a different slogan: "Right March." A poll by the state-funded Russian Public Opinion Research Center published on October 31 found that 37 percent of Russians believe in "national unity," while 54 percent of respondents disagree.
    Racist, bigoted against the LGBT community, and xenophobic. Such right-wingnuts can be found in virtually every country.

    It's been on a steep decline since WW-II, but it looks like the scourge of nationalism is on the rise again. Is Trump's a protagonist? Or, is he merely the result? I think both.

    I agree. Trump advances nationalism/white-nationalism (MAGA) within the US and is kindred with authoritarians/nationalists abroad.

    Trump played on and continues to play on the fears/racism of US whites regarding the numerical ascendance of American poc.

    As does Ukraine—and much of Europe in general for that matter.

    Of course nationalism is promoted by Putin; he's a fascist.

    Putin does not discourage his far-right nationalist Russians. He finds useful projects for them.

    How is Putin not a far right nationalist? Last I heard, people were in the street about his gutting state pensions.
