A German reporter recently investigated Vladimir Putin’s high approval ratings – over 80% – among Russians ages 18 through 25. She discovered that, whatever disagreements Russian youth may have with Putin’s administration, his nationalist image and his work in restoring Russian national pride remains a decisive appeal.
Maria Katasonova, a young Russian nationalist activist who works for both Putin’s United Russia Party and the right-wing nationalist Rodina Party dreams of an international alliance of nationalists who would stand up against the established world order:
Globalization is an attempt by globalists and liberals to dictate to all people how they should live. . . . [P]atriots will unite against globalization.
It is definitely encouraging to see especially the young generation of Russians opt for traditionalist and nationalist values over the internationalist cultural Marxism of the existing global order.
