I don't care how much they can bench-press, I don't care how big around the arms are, they proven that on the inside they are as weak as the smallest infant.

Sorry to share this, but there have been slavic nazis as long as there have been nazis. There were many right wing partisans in the Yugoslav area as well as Belorussia. Event people parading with nazi flags when the Germans occupied the region.

So nothing new. I guess there are red necks everywhere and have been for generations.

What strong and brave men -- gathering in a group of 100 like and weak-minded to beat on 14 year old girls and others. The Kremlin needs to crack down HARDER.

unlike in japan though, the public actually does something about these clowns; whenever there is ultranationalist gathering, the crowds usually beat them up.

Ukraine was famous for this. Of course Romania. Hitler really had it easy in most slavic areas. A lot of the ethnic minorities were severely oppressed in the USSR and welcomed the Nazis. Hating Jews? That was just icing on the cake.

But this new phenomenon springs not only from economic problems, but also serves... well... as king of a militia that can be called up in areas that Russia needs to put on the beat down for one reason or another. They love Putin and he knows it. They can be used just as the cossacks were used long ago. Many went to help the "Christians" in Serbia and Bosnia, as I recall, and did this and that in Chechnya. They usually find a lot of opposition from moderate and liberal elements in cities, but less populated areas can't handle being inundated by thugs. Pogrom anyone?

"Do these people know what they did during ww2?" Lies. Lies and fabrications, didn't you hear? OR Well, yes, they were animals, but they had a lot of good ideas. OR Extreme times require extreme measures, etc.

Demagogues throughout time have used the same excuses. You can pick em out whether they are talking on the radio, doing their weekly television shows, or leading MLK rallies.

Skinheads should be a group that fights rival gangs not woman and all that. They were trouvle makers when i was a nipper but would never tolerate this stuff.

Russia's a mess, let the skinheads have it, infact we should exile all the skinheads TO russia as punishment.

Didn't know there were leading MLK rallies, can't be true.

As as the Slavic Skins are concerned, I don't know why some people are surprised by this. Russians are very highly xenophobic for the most part and them embracing Nazism is NOT the same way the Germans embrace it. It is more about the movement and the solidarity the idea of ethnically clean Russia (that means all the native Brown Russians don't fall in that category) all the while embracing Communist ideology fusing the two together, having said that, if Hitler were alive, they probably wouldn't be wearing it like a badge of honor. Things are getting out of hand in Russia though, its gotten so bad, if you live in Moscow and if you are "non-White" you have to be ultra-careful. I heard even if you have long hair or Not having blonde hair can get you a serious beat down. If you attend the University in Moscow, you have a curfew to be in before nightfall because it is absolutely too dangerous to be out on the streets. These people are so ignorant and scared that the evil foreigner will take all the jobs away. Hmmmm...where have I heard that one before?

The Russian skinheads, the echelons of the zombies, the cowardly kind. They are no different from indoctrinated terrorists whose behavior has only one thing in common: sickening violence. Please Mr Putin, if you are still the man with the power you think you have, rid your nation of this pest.
