UK : Regime bans fifth neo-Nazi group under terror laws

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“An American neo-Nazi group (which is led from Russia) is to be banned as a terrorist organisation, the Home Secretary has said. Priti Patel condemned ‘evil white supremacist groups, who target vulnerable people across the world.’ The Base will be the fifth extreme right-wing group to be proscribed in the UK under anti-terror laws. Last year BBC Panorama exposed the organisation’s recruitments efforts in the UK. A BBC investigation also exposed the group’s American founder Rinaldo Nazzaro and revealed how he was directing The Base from his St Petersburg home. The Base, formed in 2018, seeks to create terrorist cells in the US and other countries in an attempt to establish fascist, white ethno-states through a ‘race war.’. Members have engaged in training with weapons and explosives. Several men linked to the group are being prosecuted in the US for offences including conspiracy to murder.” (07/12/21)
