    Locking up Nazi War Criminals

    I suspect that the latter was in part defined by the former. Some of the more crazy Ustase ideologues of the time maintained that the Croats were in fact a Germanic people who somehow ended up with a Slavic language as their mothertongue.

    Though actually, many of those Nazis have started to turn on the government in the meantime, as one would expect.

    The European New Right

    There's plenty of evidence for it, as Yatesnyuk's Patriotic Front party absorbed a lot of the neo-Nazi activists from Svoboda and Praviy Sektor into his ruling party. There's also strong evidence that the sniper massacre was carried out by members of these groups. In addition the Azov, Aidar and...

    Not sure about PEGIDA though. The BND (secret service) in Germany might also be involved. There have been some very murky dealings within the German Military Intelligence in the past (and the present) where extreme right-wing groups have been concerned. Also, the far right is not monolithic here...

    To a large extent yes, many far-right National Conservatives and fellow travellers in the west such as FN, AfD etc get backing from the Kremlin. The more overtly Nazi groups in Ukraine and the Baltics are NATO backed. Interesting to see that even the right-wing can have its schisms.

    Yes, they sort of imitate the professional cadres of the Bolshevik model, another appropriation from the left. (Apologies for my usual typo-riddled post. I only ever notice those things about 10 seconds past the time limit for editing ;) )

    The European New Right

    Good idea to set up a separate thread for this. As we were discussing elsewhere, much of the new European Right/alt-right/3rd-4th position stuff merely recruits left-wing imagery or rhetoric, depending on the context, to advance essentially nationalist-chauvinist ideas. In such situations to...

    RFE/RL should always be treated with caution, and Landsbergis even more so.

    Russia

    I'm not sure i've understood the Benghazi reference. My understanding of Ukrainian far-right politics is that it is a largely West-Ukrainian phenomenon, or at least the bulk of it originates there. The reason for this is that much of the areas in question, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivytsi etc...

    Russia

    'Real or imagined' - I have denied that millions died, i've questioned the label 'genocide'. You won't find any disagreement with me when it comes to acknowledging Stalin's ruthlessness. Genocide is something else entirely. The last genocide attempted in Russia was against the Circassians in...
