A gang of neo-Nazi “murder cult” members linked to Ukraine have been arrested, Russia has claimed.
The FSB security service said they made 16 arrests in nine Russian cities, alleging the group were preparing to carry out “terrorist” attacks on civilians and government buildings.
The “youth gang” is called M.K.U which in English means “Maniacs. Murder. Cult”.
Officers reportedly seized bladed weapons, digital data storage devices and “communication” gadgets, and “manuals for making terrorist tools”.
The gang’s Ukrainian-based leader is reported to be Yegor Krasnov who is accused of neo-Nazi writings, and the FSB claimed mot have found specific links between him and the detainees.
He is quoted as writing: “This whole world is against me and the white race.
“It was occupied by an abominable filth that needed racial cleansing.
“All people must die.
“The superman is obliged to lead world domination and give rise to a new being.”
The group claims to have supporters in Britain and Latvia.
"The detainees confirmed during questioning that Yegor Krasnov, based in Ukraine, coordinated their criminal activities, giving them instructions and encouraging them to carry out terrorist attacks and extremism-related crimes in Russia," said the FSB.
“The group recruited new members in stages.
“At first, the M.K.U. leader told them to draw extremist slogans on buildings.
“After this, they were ordered to beat homeless persons or members of youth subculture groups and later, assault civilians and law enforcement officers with bladed weapons and attack government buildings, setting them on fire and carrying out explosions.”
Krasnov was reportedly detained in Ukraine last year and to have boasted he had killed at least 15 people.
Russia reported last month that it had held 14 alleged members of the same group.
