Introduction to Russian neo-Nazis

There are reportedly 120 nationalist organizations displaying fascist and neo-Nazi symbols in Russia, the more prominent are the Russian National Union, Russian National Council, and the Russian National Unity. All these groups are extremely xenophobic (distrust of strangers), very antisemitic (hate Jewish people), and blame all of Russia's problems on an imagined "Jewish and Zionist Conspiracy."

Russian National Union
Russkiy natsional’niy soyuz
(Russkiĭ nacionalhniĭ soûz | Русский национальний союз)

Russian National Union flag two-sided Image by Ivan Sarajčić, 06 May 2000

Russian National Union (RNS) is led by Konstantin Kassimovsky. It is a Racist nazi party. Its Red flag has a black St Andrew cross fimbrated with white, in the center there is white circle (outlined black) with original black cross ("Cross-Hammer").
Jaume Ollé, 07 May 2000 and 13 May 2000

The top part of the cross looks like cyrillic letter "P" — first letter in russian word "Russia".
Victor Lomantsov, 07 May 2000

According to Andrey Jahwlansky, the symbol of RNS is a lobarum (Jesus Christ monogram) consisting from crossed Greek letters ("X" and "P"). Source: Flag Report 17 [frp]
Jaume Ollé, 07 May 2000 and 13 May 2000

I doubt about the interpretation of this symbol being the khi-ro monogram (the first two letters of "Χριστος", Greek for "Christ"). While this flag shows a cross potent with a hook extending from the side of the upper arm, the labarum (at least as used now by the Catholic Church though I believe it is quite the same elsewhere) is rather a "P" and an "X" superimposed, the first slightly elongated: "☧". There are big differences between both symbols. Moreover, the use of a religious symbol on a russian neonazi flag would make sense only if it were a distinct Russian Orthodox symbol, which is not the case.
António Martins, 10 May 2000

The Russkiy Natsional’niy Soyuz (RNS) is a neo-Nazi party based in Russia. The party grew out of the followers of Konstantin Kasimovsky, a leading member of Pamyat in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union. He split from the Pamyat-led National Patriotic Front in 1992 and formed his own party, the Russian National Union, the following year. This party re-emerged as the "Russian National Socialist Party" (RNSP) in 1998.
The party bases itself on four principles i.e. Orthodox Christianity, a strong state, aggressive Russian nationalism and non-Marxist socialism. The party symbol is the Labarum of Constantine the Great and since 1999 have published a newspaper "Right Resistance," itself a successor to the earlier journal "Stormtrooper."

National Unity of Russia
Rossiyskoye natsional’noye yedinstvo
(Rossiĭskoe nacionalhnoe edinstvo | Российское национальное единство)

Russian National Unity flag Image by Jaume Ollé, 13 Dec 1997

This version is identical to the R.N.E. logo in their posters, badges and stikers.
António Martins, 27 May 1998

This is the main neonazi organization in Russia. Operating in semi-underground regime, it engages itself in the same kind of activities as its western counterparts.
António Martins, 10 Sep 1997

Russian National Unity lead is by Barkashov.
Victor Lomantsov, 20 Oct 2000

The "bladed swastika" is actually supposed to be a swastika on a cross of St. Andrew.
Marcus Wendel, 13 Aug 1999

National Unity Variant - Nazi style

Russian National Unity flag #2 Image by António Martins, 10 Sep 1997

This version (bladed swastika black double fimbriated white-black on a white disc double fimbriated black-white on red) was seen by me on Russian TV.
António Martins, 27 May 1998

National Unity Variant - White ring and square

Russian National Unity flag #3 Image by António Martins, 27 May 1998

Yet another version of the flag of Russian National Unity: This time the bladed swastika is black and is placed on a white square, with tips protuding outside the square, but showing a white fimbriation against the red background; all inside a red ring. Red shade is clearly darker. It would maybe be of interest to know which flag or flags are really used.
António Martins, 27 May 1998, quoting Nazism Exposed | Flags and Symbols (Pål’s site)

The Rossiyskoye Natsional’noye Yedinstvo (RNU) is a far right, ultra-nationalist political party and paramilitary organization based in Russia and operating in states with Russian-speaking populations. It was founded by the ultra-nationalist Alexander Barkashov and claims to have 20,000 members, making the National Unity one of the largest extremist organization in Russia.

Russian National Socialist Party

Russian National Socialist Party and Northern Alliance are the second largest neo-nazi parties in Russia, after R.N.E.. Unfortunately I have no flags of RNSP.
Mikhail Paraskan, 22 Oct 1999

The Russian National Socialist Party achieved notoriety in 2007 when a video appeared on the internet showing members decapitating one immigrant and shooting another. The party was one of several neo-Nazi parties started by Konstantin Kasimovsky after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The RNSP was formed in 1999 after Kasimovsky closed down his previous party called the Russian National Union.
Pete Loeser, 13 July 2012


Northern alliance
Sevyerniy alliyans
(Severniĭ alliâns | Северний аллиянс)

Northern Alliance flag #1 Image by Mikhail Paraskan, 22 Oct 1999

Russian National Socialist Party and Northern Alliance are the second largest neo-nazi parties in Russia, after R.N.E.. Northern Alliance uses four different flags: The tricolor, as was used by General Vlasov Army (ROA) who collaborated with German Army and Reich; I think that is why Severnij Alijans use it together with old Aryan symbol Swastika.
Mikhail Paraskan, 22 Oct 1999

Double cross and shield on tricolor

Northern Alliance flag #2 Image by Mikhail Paraskan, 22 Oct 1999

Another of their flags with something like the “shield” used by a Division of Waffen-SS Russische
Mikhail Paraskan, 22 Oct 1999

Three-colour double cross and shield on black

Northern Alliance flag #3 Image by Mikhail Paraskan, 22 Oct 1999

The Northern Alliance used four different flags: The two double cross shield versions, the Russian tricolor with swastika, and the old ROA flag of General Vlasov's army, which collaborated with the German Army and Reich during World War II (also known as the Flag of Russia and Russian Naval Ensign).
Pete Loeser, 13 July 2012


National State Party of Russia
Национально-державная партия России | Nacionalhno-derẑavnaâ partiâ Rossii

NDPR flag Image by Mikhail Revnivtsev, 19 Apr 2003

On February 11, 2003 the Presidium of the Central Political Council of the National State Party of Russia (an unregistered radical nationalist party, in Russian: Национально-державная партия России | Nacionalhno-derẑavnaâ partiâ Rossii — "Derẑava" = "das Reich" in German language) has adopted a decision About the flag of the National State Party of Russia, according to which the flag consists of three equal horizontal strips: white, red and black (Spirit, Blood and Ground). Picture of flag from official site of this party.
Mikhail Revnivtsev, 19 Apr 2003

This flag seems to be an appropriate compromise between the German Imperial Flag (colors) and the Russian National Flag, or perhaps the Russian Imperial Flag (light colors on top, dark at the bottom). By the way: is this red алый or кроповой?
António Martins, 11 May 2003


White Legion 88

White Legion 88 flag Image by Andre Kovalev and António Martins, 15 Jan 2003

A variation of the Imperial flag, undoubtedly inspired by German WWI and WWII flags, as I saw used by the organisation White Legion 88. I must admit the flag was designed with taste.
Andre Kovalev, 04 Jul 2002


Russian Action

Glory of Russia/Organization of National Patriots of Russia
Слава Россий

Image by Jens Pattke, 12 Nov 2005

On November, 4, 2005, on a new state holiday of the Russian Federation - the Day of National Unity, many nationalist and patriotic parties and organizations held marches in Moscow against immigrants and "color revolutions" (see photos). One of organizers of this Right Marche was the Organization of National Patriots of Russia (ONPR), who proudly displayed their flags in the demonstration and march.
