A story on Russia's political youth movements in this week's Ogoniok (in Russian).

Here's the beginning of the segment on the National Bolshevik Party (NBP):

Formally, the age of the party's leader is not that of a child, but Limonov will forever remain "the adolescent Savenko" and NBP - the party of the young.


On the photo, however, Eduard Limonov, 63, is posing underneath a portrait of Stalin - and looks like nothing but an old fart.

  1. To imagine him and Dugin together in the same room much less in the same Party is bizarre. Notice the eXile shirt...I think NBP is another virtual party concocted by the Kremlin.

  2. It first occurred to me that NBP was on Putin's payroll when I saw these photos of Limonov and Dmytro Korchynsky enjoying some godawful 'revolutionary' fashion show together. Here're some links, from Korchynsky's Bratstvo site:

    But even if they aren't on Putin's payroll, they are aiding him a lot - by giving lots of material to his 'anti-fascist' Nashi, for instance:
