The Russian March
Putin's promise to replace the nationwide celebration of the 1917 Great October Revolution with another significant national holiday opened Pandora's box. The new anniversary of the victory of 1612 over Poland which supposed to be the day of Nation Unity turned into a White Power march unleashing many things Russia would not like to show. Intended to invoke patriotism, the new holiday was immediately seized upon by extreme nationalists, who have organized what has come to be called the Russian March. The rally was organized by the People's Union, The Russian Image, and a few other white supremacist groups, including Russian Orthodox fundamentalists and monarchists.
