Italian Fascists Recruiting British Kids to Fight for Nazis in Ukraine

March 30, 2015

Hope Not Hate have also reported on a couple of their blogs the appearance of the Italian Fascist, Francesco Saverio Fontana at the ‘White Pride’ rally held in Manchester on Saturday, organised by the NF and National Action, a Nazi ‘youth movement’ set up by Nick Griffin. Fontana was a member of the ‘Right Sector’, the coalition of Nazi and extreme Right-wing parties in the Ukraine. He was also a member of the Azov Battalion, a paramilitary Ukrainian organisation, but was thrown out and told to leave the country because of drunkenness and getting into trouble. He has apparently gone back to Italy to cause trouble with another bunch of violent Nazis, Casapound.

Hope Not Hate report that while he was in Manchester, he told some of the young Fascists there that he was some kind of war hero, and that the youths are now keen ‘to offer themselves up to the cause of being butchered in the Ukraine in the name of National Socialism.’

The magazine rightly remarks that our government is understandably concerned about British people going off to fight in foreign wars, so it would seem reasonable that they apply the same pressure on people recruiting to fight for nazi paramilitaries in the Ukraine as they do for people recruiting those willing to fight/marry and die for Islamic State.
