A video posted on social media of the group has gone viral.
‘Hello, we’ve just arrived from America to Donbass. We’re from all over America. I’m from Texas, my friend here is from Detroit, we’ve got people here from Minnesota, and from all areas in America.
‘We are here to fight against globalism and the New World Order. We are here to fight the Ukrainian Nazis. Russia is the last place on earth that fights against liberalism, globalism and the New World Order that is destroying America.
‘If you’re a brother of ours from America, from Canada, or from Europe, and you came to fight on the side of the Nazis in Ukraine, you best turn around and go back home….You need to go back home and you need to re-evaluate what you think you’re doing here.
‘I speak for us, but I also speak for the majority of the American people. Stand with us and let’s fight this disease [globalism and liberalism] which has taken over.’
Duma relaxes nationalisation laws for foreign fighters
The Russian parliament has approved a draft law offering a simplified path towards obtaining the country’s citizenship to foreign nationals who sign up for Russian military service.
The Federation Council, the upper house of the parliament, passed the bill on Wednesday after it was approved by the lower chamber, the State Duma, a day earlier.
Normally, foreigners who want to apply for Russian citizenship need to meet several conditions, but those who join the Russian military get some leniency. The new amendment seeks to make the exception apply to more people.
Currently, a simplified naturalization procedure applies, among other cases, to citizens of former USSR countries who sign up for service in the Russian military for at least three years.
The bill, if signed into law, will make all foreign nationals qualify for the exception and would reduce the minimum required commitment to one year of service.
