Kremlin’s Youth Group Holds patriottic Demonstration in Moscow

Posted by Kris Roman on November 15, 2008

The youth wing of the Kremlin’s party United Russia held a patriottic demonstration in Moscow, according to an October 31, 2008 article in the independent newspaper “Novaya Gazeta.” The Young Guards, who recently issued a statement that demonized migrants for the first time, gathered outside of the Federal Migration Service demanding

“Our money for our people!” Using the world financial crisis as an excuse to dabble in patriottic politics, the Young Guards demanded the abolition of programs that allow labor migrants to enter the country, in the name of Russia’s “national interests.” The Young Guards indicated their readiness to participate in vigilante actions targeting migrants, offering to patrol construction sites and identify illegal migrants working there.
