Europe should worry not only about "foreign fighters" from the Middle East, But on returning to Ukraine, said the former law enforcement officer And Explorer right-wing extremism in the EU Lewis Burton.
If we talk about "foreign fighters" in the mind of ordinary Europeans comes to the way men 19-29 years, most likely originating from the Middle East And the Muslim religion. But have to worry about any kind of primordialaa - those who returned from Ukraine, informs Barton. According to him, the conflict in Ukraine has created such rules, in which almost seamlessly formed of right-wing paramilitary groups, reports RT referring to the Huffington Post. And Pro fighters, And the Ukrainian nationalists have similar battalions: reign of right-wing views, they have connections with neo-Nazism, And they are willing to accept fighters foreigners, says Barton. The most striking example of this kind of battalion " Azov ", says the researcher. In this neo-Nazi gathering entered the number of foreigners - Russians, Swedes And one canadian. On its banner depicted the occult symbol of the black sun, which during the 2nd world war was used in SS. The most frightening attribute of this group, in the opinion of the author, it's a beautiful page in social networks with English-language materials on political themes, which greatly facilitated the recruitment process of new members. However, the phenomenon of foreign terrorists in Eastern Europe is not new - a number of them arrived in the region during the Russo-Chechen conflict in 1995. But the Threat from the Ukrainian pravoradikalov still different than the Danger from a soldier returning from Syria. In the same battalion " Azov ", for example, is a Swedish citizen - trained sniper with seven years of experience in the Swedish army." People with similar skills, who calls himself "ethnic nationalist" And holds extremist views, has the ability to be potential very dangerous, " says Barton. The brutality of the conflict can affect a fighter. For example, there is evidence that Ukrainian nationalists, United in the battalion " Aidar, has made numerous military lawlessness - kidnapping, illegal detention And beheadings. Such action has the ability to be post-traumatic syndrome - he may at some point the "break" And suddenly make a mass shooting. A former fighter from Ukraine may radicalise And other people. Needless to say, in light of the terrorist attacks in Paris the theme of jihadists at the present time came in first place, to the same stream of people heading to the Syrian Arab Republic And Iraq, a lot more than going to Ukraine. However, for destructive violence one primordiale is only worth Recalling Anders Breivik, specifies the Creator of the Huffington Post. The danger of right-wing terrorists in Ukraine is quite real And can only hope that Europe will not be able to see this, he writes. First UK Russia said that "the actions of the individuals from the highest political And military leadership of Ukraine, carrying out the command of the so-called anti-terrorist operation conducted in the South-East of Ukraine, as Well as subordinate commanders of the Ukrainian nationalist battalions" Aidar ", "Azov" And "Dnepr" do not qualify for another as genocide ".
