European neo-Nazis undertake combat training in Russia

Right-wing extremists from Germany undertake paramilitary training in a base camp close to St. Petersburg.

Numerous participants are said to be members of the "Third Way" more commonly known in Europe as the "Young Nationalists" parties, all of whom are closely monitored by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution

The right-wing group was formed in 2013 by members of the National Democratic Party (Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands) who have significant ties with the banned Free Network association.

The association is also tied with the Syrian Assad government and the Hezbollah group situated in Lebanon.

Apparently, the Der Dritte Weg organisation has already outlined a detailed call to boycott Israel, after calling the state a "terror state."

Who are the Young Nationalists members of the National Democratic Party? Said to be the oldest right-wing extremist party in modern-day Germany

The "Young Nationalists" is the youth branch of the oldest right-wing extremist party in Germany, the National Democratic Party. Formed in 1964 to succeed the German Reich Party it quickly became known as Germany's only major patriotic force and remained so until in 2011 the German People's Union merged with the NPD.

Although their membership is relatively low, they have become a force to be reckoned with often running under the pretext of environmental platforms and other ideological platforms.

Trained at the partisan training centre by the Russian Imperial Movement or (RIM) they have as of late focused on how to react in the ongoing George Floyd protests especially towards the many cases of looting so that some peaceful protests can with their help, turn violent

An example of them implementing this ruse is a video address created by RIM leaders titled "Uncontrolled Blacks, antifas and liberals in the USA." a video which has not helped the normally peaceful George Floyd ongoing protests

The United States has been quick to denounce the Russian Imperial Movement (RIM) as a purely terrorist organisation who have members which singularly "pursue the ideas of white supremacy".

This is not the first time the organisation which has two training camps set up adjacent to the city of St. Petersburg has hit the news headlines.

One of the training camps has recently been the subject of an investigation carried out by the U.S. State Department for Combating Terrorism.

The investigation focused as to its connection with an explosion in the city of Gothenburg in 2016, where according to the Swedish prosecutor's office both perpetrators Viktor Melin and Anton Thulin both trained at the Partizan centre in question.

The movement has got two training camps in St. Petersburg, according to the State Department. One of them, according to Nathan Sales, the U.S. State Department Coordinator for Combating Terrorism, was targeted in an investigation of the explosion in Gothenburg in 2016.

Furthermore, the Swedish prosecutor's office believes perpetrators Viktor Melin and Anton Thulin underwent combat training at the Partizan centre which is supposed to be affiliated with the DOSAAF which is in its-self, is affiliated with the Russian military (IMINT) who specialise in training combatants in live-fire shooting, urban warfare training, tactical medicine better known as chemical warfare, survival techniques and high-altitude training
