Russian deputy envoy to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Dmitry Balakin has complained to the organization against neo-Nazi presence in a United States government-funded cultural center in Ukraine’s capital city of Kiev. Speaking to the OSCE Permanent Council in Vienna on Friday, Balakin condemned ongoing neglect of surging state-sponsored nationalist extremism in Ukraine. “It got to a point where a member of the C14 neo-Nazi group was allowed to speak at the America House in Kiev, against the background of the American flag, where he boasted about results of ‘cleaning’ a Kiev railway station from Gypsies jointly with the city police,” said the Russian diplomat. The image of the controversial event has circulated on social media, showing a known neo-Nazi speaker at the center.
