Neo-Nazis and Anti-Fascists Clash in Moscow

(February 22, 2008)

Three separate violent incidents took place in Moscow on Valentines Day between neo-Nazis and anti-fascists, according to a February 15, 2008 report by the news web site Gazeta.ru. Around 50 anti-fascists gathered to protect a "flash mob" demonstration by gay rights activists in the downtown area; a large group of neo-Nazis, who regularly assault both groups, gathered to disrupt the demonstration. The anti-fascists attacked two neo-Nazis, one of whom managed to escape before they beat him. That same day, neo-Nazis stabbed an anti-fascist, and in a third incident, a mass brawl involving 30-40 people on either side resulted in several anti-fascists being seriously injured.
