Fascist neo-nazi riots in Moscow following the murder of a young Russian man have had a chilling effect on the migrant community. Officials have arrested over 1200 immigrants since October 10th in sweeps of market areas, road blocks, and door to door raids. Only 32 fascist rioters out of the 380 that were arrested Sunday have been charged. The Russian police have been nowhere to be found during nazi attacks on migrants. Meanwhile, they have illegally detained many migrants in search of the killer (who has now been found).Video evidence from Monday reveals Neo Nazi’s in Chertanovo Moscow destroying vehicles and attacking people of non-Slav “appearance,” while chanting “Our response to Kurban Bayram.” A liveblog witness report says that young fascists were seen chanting neo-nazi slogans, trashing cars, and attacking migrants. On Tuesday Oct. 14th, nationalists staged a fake knife attack and attempted to blame it on migrants in St Petersburg. Also there have been two murders of non-Russians since the riots, that are presumably related.
The Russian government is continuing to overlook hate crimes, continue anti immigrant policies, and illegally detaining migrants. Not long ago, many concentration camps were opened up for illegal migrants in Russia.
