The Alabama-based League of the South, designated as a white supremacist hate group by the Anti-Defamation League, is launching a Russian-language page to attract people interested in “Southern Nationalism,” AL.com reports.
"As fellow Whites of northern European extraction, we come from the same general gene pool. As inheritors of the European cultural tradition, we share similar values, customs, and ways of life. And as Christians, we worship the same Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and our common faith binds us as brothers and sisters," the group's leader Michael Hill posted to the group’s website.
"A firm and resolute understanding and commitment to cooperation between the Russian people and the people of the South could indeed be the foundation for a better world in which our peoples thrive and prosper far into the future," he added.
The announcement comes one week after President Donald Trump’s joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump during the press conference declined to challenge Putin’s insistence that his country did not meddle in the election, then backtracked a day later by saying he misspoke in his comments and that he accepted the assessment of U.S. intelligence agencies that Moscow interfered.
