Racists Post Another Murder Video

(December 31, 2008)

Someone posted an Internet video of two or three assailants killing a Chinese man, according to a December 24, 2008 report by the Sova Information-Analytical Center. The murder, which police initially insisted was not motivated by racism, took place in a wooded area in the Chelyabinsk region on September 29, 2008. Whoever posted the video added photos of another attack on two men of Asian appearance in another wooded area, along with the claim that it took place on the same day as the murder. It is not clear what measures, if any, local police are taking in response to the murder video, an increasingly popular form of propaganda used by Russian neo-Nazi groups on Youtube and other websites.
