True, they do not write checks directly to “Russian Nazis” but it is what happens in the end. Instead they give direct financial support to the Other Russia Party. Yes, foreign financing of a Russian political party is just as illegal as say Chinese support of an American Party and while the US would, rightfully, be aghast and outraged at such behavior, the American political elites, living on hypocrisy, have no problems with double standards and breaking other nation’s laws.
As such, the United States Congress, through such front organizations as Freedom House, gives direct financial assistance and training and other intelligence and PR support for the Other Russia Party, led by the former chess champ and political second rate hack Gary Kasparov. This vile man despises Russians, is a legal resident of New Jersey, can barely get 2% of the Russian popular vote and makes a lot of money on interviews to the US/UK press where he damns Russians.
So where do the Nazis come in to this?
Well, when Kasparov failed to get any real vote, he created the Other Russia party, against then President Putin’s government. Other Russia is an umbrella organization that has several of the worst of Russia’s edge politicos, like Misha 2%, Michael Kasyanov
So in short, millions of American dollars and British pounds go to finance the worst radicals in Russia, rather than building bridges in America or fighting crime in the UK. When ever the Russian Nazis make illegal marches and start fights with the police, cause public damage or threaten individuals, the Anglo press rushes to their defense, declaring them peaceful legal protestors suppressed by the evil Russian state.
But this should not be a surprise for anyone who knows a thing or two about US history and the funding that Wall Street gave both the Bolsheviks under Lenin and Trotsky and the funds it also gave both Hitler and Mussolini.
More recently, the same funds and front organizations were used to bank roll the socialist Orange revolution in Ukraine. It should be interesting to note that one of the key organizations in that umbrella movement, and the organization that provided now president Yushenko’s body guards, was Uno-Unsa, the Ukrainian Nazi party.
Equally, America protects and sponsors the governments of Estonia and Latvia, both of whom who have rehabilitated their Nazi veterans and hold yearly honor parades for them, attended by all the top government officials. Both nations have continued to make heroes of men who were used by Hitler for mass genocide first of the local Jews of the Baltics, than of Berlin’s Jews than of the Poles, Belarusians and others, as they retreated with Hitler’s beaten legions.
Is there a pattern? Of course there is and the US tax payer is paying for it. Even now, with America doubling her national debt, in under five months, a nation that is the world’s debtor, the elites of America continue sponsoring Nazi movements in eastern Europe and the CIS.
Why does the public not care?
Alex, this is just for you:
The march involved over 200 Latvian Legion veterans and their supporters.
A Latvian Legion march in 2005 through Riga resulted in dozens of arrests after clashes with Russian activists. The march involved WWII SS veterans and young nationalists.
Relations between Russia, Latvia and Estonia have been marred in the past few years by what Moscow calls the unequal treatment of ethnic Russians, the alleged persecution of Soviet WWII veterans, and the apparent revival of nationalism and fascism in the Baltic States.
Latvia has been criticized by Amnesty International for its treatment of its 400,000 Russian-speaking population who continue to live in the country without citizenship.

The Arajs Kommando (also: Sonderkommando Arajs), led by SS-Sturmbannführer Viktors Arājs, was a unit of Latvian Auxiliary Police (German: Lettische Hilfspolizei) subordinated to the Nazi SD. It is one of the more well-known and notorious killing units during the Holocaust.
It was established in Latvia in early July 1941, immediately following the German capture of Riga, by Walter Stahlecker, the commander of Einsatzgruppe A and Commander (German: Befehlshaber) of the Sicherheitspolizei and SD (BdS) for Reichskommissariat Ostland.
The unit actively participated in a variety of Nazi atrocities: the killing of Jews, Roma, and mental patients, as well as punitive actions and massacres of civilians along the Latvia's eastern border in Russia and Belarus. The Kommando killed around 26,000 Jews in total. Most notably, the unit took part in the mass execution of Jews from the Riga Ghetto, and several thousand Jews deported from Germany, at Rumbula on November 30 and December 8, 1941.
Some of Arājs's men also served as guards at the Nazi concentration camp at Salaspils.
As can be seen in contemporary Nazi newsreels, the Arajs Kommando figured prominently in the burning of Riga's Great (Choral) Synagogue on 4 July 1941. Commemoration of this event has been chosen for marking Holocaust Memorial Day in present-day Latvia.
The unit numbered about 300 men during the phase it participated in killing of Jewish population in Latvia, reaching between 500–1,200 members at the height of its involvement in anti-partisan operations in 1942.
In the final phases of the war, the unit was disbanded and its personnel transferred to the Latvian Legion.
At the instigation of the Einsatzgruppe, the Latvian auxiliary police carried out a pogrom against the Jews in Riga. All synagogues were destroyed and 400 Jews were killed. According to Stahlecker's report, the number of Jews killed in mass executions by Einsatzgruppe A by the end of October 1941 in Riga, Jelgava (Mitau), Liepāja (Libau), Valmiera (Wolmar), and Daugavpils (Dvinsk) totaled 30,025, and by the end of December 1941, 35,238 Latvian Jews had been killed; 2,500 Jews remained in the Riga Ghetto and 950 in the Daugavpils ghetto. At the end of 1941 and the beginning of 1942, Jews deported from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and other German occupied countries began arriving in Latvia. Some 15,000 "Reich Jews" were settled in several streets of the liquidated "greater Riga ghetto". Many transports were taken straight from the Riga railroad station to execution sites in the Rumbula and Biķernieki forests near Riga, and elsewhere. In 1942 about 800 Jews from Kaunas Ghetto were brought to Riga and some of them participated in the underground organization in the Riga ghetto.
The German occupying power in Latvia also kept Jews in "barracks camps", i.e., near their places of forced labor. A considerable number of such camps were located in the Riga area and other localities. Larger concentrations camps included those at Salaspils and Kaiserwald (Mežaparks). The Salaspils concentration camp, set up at the end of 1941, contained thousands of people, including many Latvian and foreign Jews.
Conditions in this camp, one of the worst in Latvia, led to heavy loss of life among the inmates. The Kaiserwald concentration camp, established in the summer of 1943, contained the Jewish survivors from the ghettos of Riga, Daugavpils, Liepāja, and other places, as well as non-Jews. At the end of September 1943 Jews from the liquidated Vilna Ghetto were also taken to Kaiserwald. When the Soviet victories in the summer of 1944 forced a German retreat from the Baltic states, the surviving inmates of the Kaiserwald camp were deported by the Germans to Stutthof concentration camp near Danzig, and from there were sent to various other camps.
