The Russian xenophobic group, Movement Against Illegal Immigration (DPNI), wishes to move towards “respectable nationalism,” according to its leader, Alexander Potkin (Belov). He said there is no European-style nationalism in Russia. This he characterised as “nationalism in suits, tie, and velvet gloves.”
The DPNI decided at its congress to increase its political presence in Russia. The movement ratified the so-called Pact of 8 June, signed by three nationalist organisations: DPNI, Greater Russia, and NAROD. The pact aims at the merger of nationalist forces in Russia, NEWSru.com reports.
