Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This was important for me to read.  I had assumed that the Nashi were xenophobic and racist.  Clearly, I was very much mistaken:

Racism hardly arrived in Russia with Nashi.  Though I am sure that there are racists in Nashi.  From what I can gather, it seems that Nashi's been conflated with and a magnet for other, smaller, more extreme youth movements, including skinheads, etc.  And frankly, given their name, I mean, I just can't possibly imagine why anyone would ever accuse Nashi of being exclusionist...  


Awesome writing. eXile needs to get a clue and start reading ET.

Haha.  Please feel free to drop them a line!!  ;)
