“Members of “The Base” posed for photos that were used as propaganda”. Is Putin’s “Z” a reversed image of this runic symbol?
Supporting both white supremacists and black nationalists, and communists and fascists appears part of Russian Active Measures which have been ongoing for 100 years or more:
“Active measures (Russian: активные мероприятия, romanized: aktivnye meropriyatiya) is political warfare conducted by the Soviet or Russian government since the 1920s. It includes offensive programs such as disinformation, propaganda, deception, sabotage, destabilization, subversion, and espionage. The programs were based on foreign policy priorities of the Soviet Union. Active measures have continued in the post-Soviet era in Russia.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_measures They may pre-date Soviet times, as their intelligence services pre-date the USSR.
Russia’s #1 propaganda tool is accusing others of what they themselves are doing/have done. Russia’s training Neo-Nazis, while accusing Ukrainians of being Nazis! In fact, as seen below, “Russian neo-Nazi Aleksey Milchakov established Rusich (Reconnaissance and Sabotage Group) in 2014 and led its operations against Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine until 2015.”
The Russian Imperial Movement was the first white supremacist group to be designated as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Threat. This was under US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who served in the Trump administration. It is located in Putin’s hometown of St. Petersburg Russia.
Putin was a KGB and East German Stasi liaison officer, and then head of the FSB. Since Nazis were absorbed into the Stasi, he learned from the Nazis, the Stasis, and the KGB. The KGB descends from Tsarist Okhrana: “Okhrana was of interest long after its demise when he wrote that the Russian police agency “was, in fact, a comprehensive, coordinated espionage and counterespionage organization, the most total form of espionage devised in the latter part of the 19th century and still forming the basis of Soviet espionage and counterespionage today.”  Russia’s GRU has its roots in imperial Russian spying, as well. 
Why would anyone have ever trusted or believed Putin about anything?
As a KGB-Stasi liaison officer, Putin may have been a handler for both Neo-Nazis and the Red Baader-Meinhof terrorists:
“Did Vladimir Putin Support Anti-Western Terrorists as a Young KGB Officer? Putin has sworn his time as a KGB officer in Dresden was uneventful.

RUSSIA PROVIDING MOSTLY INDIRECT AND PASSIVE SUPPORT TO RMVEs
This report is provided by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Office of the Secretary of Defense in response to section 1237(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (FY2 1 NDAA). It includes an unclassified summary of Russia’s support of foreign racially and ethnically motivated violent extremists (RMVE) and a classified annex.
This product was drafted by the National Intelligence Council. National Intelligence Officers for Transnational Threats, and Russia and Eurasia. Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation provided substantive contributions.
The Russian Government probably tolerates some private Russian entities’ support to RMVEs, at least in part because it aligns with Kremlin efforts to aggravate societal fissures in the West. Russia sometimes uses and manipulates Russian ultranationalist groups at home, but does not welcome their influence and often subjects their leaders to harsh prison sentences. Some Russian private paramilitary groups are trying to recruit and train Western RVIVEs to expand their reach into the West, increase membership, and raise money. These groups’ training of RMVEs poses a potential threat to Western security by encouraging and enabling attacks on ethnic minorities and government facilities.
We lack indications of Russian Government direct support–such as financing, material support, training, or guidance–to RMVEs outside Russia. However, Russian online influence operations amplify politically divisive issues that probably contribute to RMVE radicalization and recruitment efforts worldwide.

We lack indications of Russian Government direct support–such as financing. material support. training, or guidance–to RMVEs outside of Russia. However, Russian online influence operations amplify politically divisive issues that probably contribute to RMVE radicalization and recruitment efforts worldwide.
Key Russia-based private entities that have engaged with foreign RMVEs include the following.
• Russian National Unity (RNU) movement. Founded in 1990. the RNU promotes white supremacist, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-Semitic views inside Russia and on social media, according to a review of the group’s online posts and public speeches.
* Rusich Reconnaissance and Sabotage Group. Russian neo-Nazi Aleksey Milchakov established Rusich in 2014 and led its operations against Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine until 2015. Milchakov and Rusich senior member Yan Petrovskiy are under International Criminal Court investigation and Ukrainian indictments for committing war crimes against Ukrainian POWs, according to Belarusian and Ukrainian press reports.
* Russian Imperial Movement (RIM). The ultranationalist and monarchist RIM, which was established in 2002, has trained white European RMVEs as well as sought to recruit white U.S. RMVEs to train at its paramilitary camps in Russia. RIM has forged ties with likeminded Western RMVEs. probably to expand its outreach. attract new supporters, and establish footholds in those regions. RIM’s Imperial Legion armed wing commander, U.S.-designated Denis Gariyev, manages Russia-based paramilitary training camps for Russian and Western students, according to Western press reporting. In April 2020. the U.S. Department of State listed RIM as a specially designated terrorist group.
• The Base. The transnational neo-Nazi group “The Base,’- which is led by a U.S. national who moved to Russia in 2017. emerged in 2018 and has consistently communicated with likeminded individuals in North America to promote violence and spread radical ideologies.
European RA4VE groups or networks that have been allowed to use a Russian social media platform to amplify their narratives include the Italian fascist organization Casa Pound, the German neo-Nazi group Der Dritte Weg, and the Scandinavian neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement.” https://lansinginstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/558091662-ODNI-Report-Russian-Federation-Support-of-Racially-and-Ethnically-Motivated-Violent-Extremists.pdf
Italian-American “Neo-Nazi Rinaldo Nazzaro running US militant group The Base from Russia” By Daniel De Simone, Andrei Soshnikov & Ali Winston BBC News, 24 January 2020 https://web.archive.org/web/20200129011926/https://www.bbc.com/news/world-51236915
“aligns with Kremlin efforts to aggravate societal fissures in the West” (DNI, July 2021)
While they may “lack indications of Russian Government direct support–such as financing. material support, training, or guidance–to RMVEs outside of Russia”, that support is almost certainly there. Russian intel services have backed divisive groups within the US and Europe for over 100 years, as part of active measures. How else would these groups finance themselves? Drug money? More likely both. Is the DNI considering funding from Russian majority owned companies as Russian government funding or as private funding? The DNI adds “However, Russian online influence operations amplify politically divisive issues that probably contribute to RMVE radicalization and recruitment efforts worldwide.”
Nazzaro allegedly worked for DHS and the Pentagon before founding “The Base” and moving to Russia with his Russian wife. Maybe this is why the US “lacks indications of Russian direct support”? Their “intelligence” is infested with Russian agents or Russian sympathetic agents?
The Kremlin has been trying to incite a race war in the USA for approximately 100 years. https://warsawinstitute.org/racial-conflicts-created-russian-security-authorities-usa/ These included a KGB plan to kill Martin Luther King (see below).
“Prepping for a race war: documents reveal inner workings of neo-Nazi group Chats, audio and video obtained by the Guardian give a rare insight into the workings of a disturbing white supremacist group
Exclusive: True identity of leader revealed
by Jason Wilson
The Guardian studied leaked materials relayed by the whistleblower and pursued other lines of inquiry to exclusively reveal the real identity of the Base’s secretive leader as Nazzaro, 46, from New Jersey.
Nazzaro is currently living in Russia with his Russian wife. Until the Guardian’s exposé little was known about his background and he was only known by the alias “Norman Spear”…
Under the motto “there is no political solution” the group embraces an “accelerationist” ideology, which holds that acts of violence and terror are required to push liberal democracy towards collapse, preparing the way for white supremacists to seize power and establish an ethno-state.”https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/25/inside-the-base-neo-nazi-terror-group
This “accelerationist” ideology is the same one which drove Kremlin funded German Antifa to work with Hitler’s Brown shirts to bring down the German Weimar Republic, which led to Hitler’s dictatorship.

* New Jersey native is the head of The Base, a neo-Nazi terrorist organization
* The Base wants to replace American society with a ‘white ethnostate’
* Nazzaro also ‘worked as a contractor for the Pentagon and analyst for the FBI’
* He launched The Base in 2018 under the alias Norman Spear, aka Roman Wolf
* Nazzaro is running the organization from an apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia

Justice Department Statement on the Mass Shooting in Buffalo, NY
The Justice Department tonight released the following statement from Attorney General Merrick B. Garland:
“Tonight, the country mourns the victims of a senseless, horrific shooting in Buffalo, New York. The FBI and ATF are working closely with the Buffalo Police Department and federal, state, and local law enforcement partners.
“The Justice Department is investigating this matter as a hate crime and an act of racially-motivated violent extremism. The Justice Department is committed to conducting a thorough and expeditious investigation into this shooting and to seeking justice for these innocent victims.” https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-department-statement-mass-shooting-buffalo-ny Here’s betting that the attack is Russia linked, but we may not be told.
“The KGB’s plan to eliminate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”
Race War by William Covington January 9, 2014
“The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB” by Christopher Andrew and Vasoli Mitrokhin: “King was probably the only prominent American to be the target of active measures by both the FBI and the KGB. By the mid-1960s the claims by the CPUSA leadership that secret Party members within King’s entourage would be able to “guide” his policies had proved to be hollow.81 To the Centre’s dismay, King repeatedly linked the aims of the civil rights movement not to the alleged worldwide struggle against American imperialism but to the fulfillment of the American dream and “the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.”
He wrote in his inspirational “Letter from Birmingham Jail” in 1963:
I have no despair about the future … We will reach the goal of freedom in Birmingham [Alabama] and all over the nation, because the goal of America is freedom … We will win our freedom because the sacred heritage of our nation and the eternal will of God are embodied in our echoing demands.82
Having given up hope of influencing King, the Centre aimed instead at replacing him with a more radical and malleable leader. In August 1967 the Centre approved an operational plan by the deputy head of Service A, Yuri Modin, former “former controller of the Magnificent Five, to discredit King and his chief lieutenants…
Service A sought to exploit the violent images of the long, hot summers which began in August 1965 with race riots in Watts, the black Los Angeles ghetto, which resulted in thirty-six deaths, left 1,032 injured and caused damage estimated at over 40 million dollars. The Centre seems to have hoped that as violence intensified King would be swept aside by black radicals such as Stokeley Carmichael, who told a meeting of Third World revolutionaries in Cuba in the summer of 1967, “We have a common enemy. Our struggle is to overthrow this system … We are moving into open guerrilla warfare in the United States.”…
“Designation of the Russian Imperial Movement
NATHAN A. SALES, COORDINATOR FOR COUNTERTERRORISM
APRIL 6, 2020
Since 2015, the world has seen a surge in white supremacist terrorism. Last month was the first anniversary of the horrific terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. The United States is not immune to this threat. We’ve seen attacks targeting people because of their race or religion in places like Pittsburgh, Poway, and El Paso.
Countering this threat is a top priority for this Administration. After the El Paso attack, President Trump said, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry, and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated.”
This Administration isn’t just talking the talk. We’re walking the walk. We’re taking decisive actions to counter this threat.
Today, the State Department is designating the Russian Imperial Movement – also known as RIM – as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, or SDGT. We’re also designating three of RIM’s leaders as SDGTs:
* Stanislav Anatolyevich Vorobyev;
* Denis Valliullovich Gariyev; and
* Nikolay Nikolayevich Trushchalov.
These designations are unprecedented. This is the first time the United States has ever designated white supremacist terrorists, illustrating how seriously this administration takes the threat. We are taking actions no previous administration has taken to counter this threat.
RIM is a terrorist group that provides paramilitary-style training to neo-Nazis and white supremacists, and it plays a prominent role in trying to rally like-minded Europeans and Americans into a common front against their perceived enemies. RIM has two training facilities in St. Petersburg, which likely are being used for woodland and urban assault, tactical weapons, and hand-to-hand combat training.
This group has innocent blood on its hands. In August 2016, two Swedish men traveled to St. Petersburg and underwent 11 days of paramilitary-style training provided by RIM.
A few months later, these men and another person conducted a series of terrorist attacks in the Swedish city of Gothenburg. In November 2016, they detonated a bomb outside a café. Two months later, they bombed a migrant center, gravely injuring one person. And three weeks after that, they placed another bomb at a campsite used to house refugees.
Thankfully, that device failed to detonate.
Swedish authorities were able to arrest the attackers, and they’ve now been tried and convicted for their crimes. The prosecutor who handled their case blamed RIM for radicalizing them and providing the training that enabled the attacks.
These historic designations are just one part of the Administration’s broader efforts to counter white supremacist terrorism abroad. We’re bringing all of our counterterrorism tools to this fight – information sharing, countermessaging, combatting terrorist travel, engaging with tech companies, and building partner capacity to protect soft targets like synagogues and mosques.
Today’s actions are possible because of an order President Trump signed in September – the most significant expansion of federal terrorism sanctions authorities since 9/11. Thanks to this order, the State Department can now designate groups and individuals that participate in training to commit acts of terrorism. We can also designate the leaders of terrorist groups, without needing to show that they were involved in particular attacks.
And let me be clear: Today’s designations send an unmistakable message that the United States will not hesitate to use our sanctions authorities aggressively, and that we are prepared to target any foreign terrorist group, regardless of ideology, that threatens our citizens, our interests abroad, or our allies.
