Skinheads Rally on Victory Day in St. Petersburg

On 9 May, Russia�s national Day of Victory, members of an extremist group �Solstice� and around 30 skinheads congregated on Zagrebski Avenue in St. Petersburg. This small-scale demonstration took place despite requests for the extremists to refrain from any action on Victory Day.

The procession of skinheads was unhindered by law enforcement agencies as they marched down the avenue shouting the slogan �Glory to Russia� and displayed the inverted swastika, a symbol of neo-nazism. Later, a group of 15 extreme nationalists were seen marching onto Victory Square.
