‘Russia claims to foil ‘neo-Nazi terrorist’ plot against pro-Kremlin TV anchor Vladimir Solovyov’ ran the headline in the Times Of Israel newspaper.

“The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation detained a group of members of the neo-Nazi terrorist organization National Socialism/White Power, which is banned in Russia,” Russia’s FSB security agency said in a statement carried by news agencies, adding that those arrested are Russian citizens.

A staunch supporter of Putin and Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine, Solovyov (who is Jewish) is under EU sanctions for spreading state “propaganda.”

Under Putin, the FSB, Russia’s security agency, has been waging a war on any group that it considered ‘Nazi’. The following is a list of the groups banned in his campaign against racial Nationalism.
