Organisers say the event, the International Russian Conservative Forum, is aimed at promoting "traditional values" and uniting nationally-orientated forces in Europe and Russia.

Interesting, could be trivial but fishing for alliances seems to show the intentions of future behavior. Should any alliances transpire I'm curious to NATO's reaction.

The full article has a list of parties attending, I'm not familiar with many but Greece's Golden Dawn party seems to go out of their way to show similarity to the Nazi party.

If political parties to the right sympathise with the Russian situation, then surely it begs the question, who is wrong?

Wrong implies someone is right. Looking back at different countries with imperial interests through history it's hard to say if anyone is right but usually many participants being wrong.

Is there any genuine proof that this actually took place?

No verifications in the BBC story.

Looks to be a lot more extensive than BBC article, it has responses from people who attended and a few pictures. It already happened I suppose.

My sentiments exactly, what I'm trying to say is, can you blame them for searching for allies? Who are the imperialists in this situation?

Can't see the article without "logging in".

Don't trust the source.

National Socialists are "far right"?

Reading up about the "Rodina" party, it`s only a local party, because the national part of it went up into "A Just Russia," which calls itself left-wing party and is opposition to Putin his party.

So no, this hasn`t anything to do with The Kremlin.

A Little Secret About the Nazis (They were left-wing socialists like the modern left of today)
1/2002 | Richard Poe

A Little Secret About the Nazis

They were left-wing socialists. Yes, the National Socialist Workers Party of Germany, otherwise known as the Nazi Party, was indeed socialist, and it had a lot in common with the modern left. Hitler preached class warfare, agitating the working class to resist ``exploitation'' by capitalists -- particularly Jewish capitalists, of course.

Their program called for the nationalization of education, health care, transportation, and other major industries. They instituted and vigorously enforced a strict gun control regimen. They encouraged pornography, illegitimacy, and abortion, and they denounced Christians as right-wing fanatics. Yet a popular myth persists that the Nazis themselves were right-wing extremists. This insidious lie biases the entire political landscape, and the time has come to expose it.

(Hitler) openly acknowledged that the Nazi party was ``socialist'' and that its enemies were the ``bourgeoisie'' and the ``plutocrats'' (the rich). Like Lenin and Stalin, Hitler eliminated trade unions, and replaced them with his own state-run labor organizations. Like Lenin and Stalin, Hitler hunted down and exterminated rival leftist factions (such as the Communists). Like Lenin and Stalin, Hitler waged unrelenting war against small business.

Hitler regarded capitalism as an evil scheme of the Jews and said so in speech after speech. Karl Marx believed likewise. In his essay, ``On the Jewish Question,'' Marx theorized that eliminating Judaism would strike a crippling blow to capitalist exploitation. Hitler put Marx's theory to work in the death camps.

The Nazis are widely known as nationalists, but that label is often used to obscure the fact that they were also socialists. Some question whether Hitler himself actually believed in socialism, but that is no more relevant than whether Stalin was a true believer.

According to a popular misconception, the Nazis must have been on the political right because they persecuted communists and fought a war with the communists in Russia. This specious logic has gone largely unchallenged because it serves as useful propaganda for the left, which needs ``right-wing'' atrocities to divert attention from the horrific communist atrocities of the past century. Hence, communist atrocities have received much less publicity than Nazi war crimes, even though they were greater in magnitude by any objective measure.

Many Europeans share the same view. Countries with thousands of years of history are combining into one, some feel more like a state over here when it comes to some issues governed by the EU. Then there is the US and NATO. Interesting to see where that sentiment leads.

Apologies, the site is typically a paid subscription I found through Google where it let's you read the article.
Wall Street Journal

This one should work. Many outlets covered it, but I think BBC and Wall Street Journal can both be considered reliable.

Can I blame them for seeking allies? No. God knows Russia could use a little local support, given the horrid state that things are in at the moment. Can I blame them for seeking support from people who hate? Yes.

Hatred is my enemy, those who walk under banners of hate are my enemy, those who prejudice themselves against entire demographics are my enemy, those who seek to divide the human species against its own interests, are my enemy, and I do not appreciate Russia dealing with groups which champion hatred. They will make more enemies than friends in so doing, and that bodes ill for them.

Very true indeed! The Nazi party put everyone back to work in a very difficult economic situation. Left wing economics but very Right wing thoughts on society. Suffice it to say the Nazis were complicated.

Still won't work.

But here's one that seems to parrot the story.

Without verified sources however.

Europe’s Far Right Comes To Russia In Search Of Shared Values, Money — Or Just Attention



The “fringe of the fringe” gathered in St. Petersburg on Sunday to rail against Freemasons, LGBT people, and “Zionist puppet filth.”



This could be a standard MSM propaganda deal.

Maybe not.

Can't find anything reliable.

Nothing wrong with some healthy questioning. And just to play the other side and say it is fake, I would be willing to bet that such provocative disinformation will eventually drive Russia to look for allies. It's a slippery slope. I will admit though that it is hard to sift through credible western media's real stories on Russia right now, they are quick to be demonized right now.

Putin is scared of gay people. Doesn't that mean he is a closet gay person who is to embarrassed to admit it and live it?

Nope...

It just means he is a paranoid and willfully ignorant. I am sure he thinks the inquisitions were nothing more than just tough love for heretics.
