Neo-Nazis in Moscow’s Service

Neo-Nazi self-styled “people’s governor” Pavel Gubarev among friends (http://vk.com/wall-23482909_275952?reply=276264)
While criminalizing honest historical debate under the guise of fighting “restoration of Nazism”, the Kremlin is showing incredible willingness to use neo-Nazi groups for its dirty work in Ukraine
Whether Vladimir Putin’s call for a postponement of the May 11 pseudo-referendums in Donbas was genuine will shortly become clear. The reported announcement that the leaders of the self-styled Donetsk People’s Republic are “against” postponement may indicate that it was a mere attempt to distance Moscow from the militants. The attempt would be pitifully unconvincing, but that has not been a consideration up till now. Nor has damage to Russia’s reputation of the Kremlin’s continuing use of neo-Nazis to do its dirty work.
