Slavic Union Banned

The Slavic Union, a notorious ultranationalist group likened to fascists by prosecutors, was banned for extremism by the Moscow City Court on Tuesday.

The hearings were closed to the public. Dmitry Dyomushkin, the union’s leader, said the court ignored the group’s arguments and he promised to appeal, Interfax reported.

The probe against the union, abbreviated “SS” after its Russian name, Slavyansky Soyuz, was opened by the city prosecutors, who accused the organization of promoting nationalistic supremacy similar to the ideology of Nazi Germany. SS was also the abbreviation used by Hitler’s security forces who carried out the Holocaust.
