Project Summary

Reviews the rise of Zhirinovskii’s LDPR in 1990-3. Clarifies issues of conceptualization, typologization and evaluation of various Russian right-wing extremist groups. Compares contemporary Russian fascism with inter- and post-war Western fascist agendas to determine the extent and direction of post-Soviet Russian political ideosyncrasies that can be conceived as expressions of modern parthologies.
