ANKARA

The U.S. designated Monday a Russian ultra-nationalist group Russian Imperial Movement as a terrorist organization.

"This is the first time the United States has ever designated white supremacist terrorists, illustrating how seriously this administration takes the threat," State Department's coordinator for counterterrorism, Nathan Sales, said in a press briefing. "We are taking actions no previous administration has taken to counter this threat."

The U.S. also named three individuals believed to be the group's leaders -- Stanislav Anatolyevich Vorobyev, Denis Valliullovich Gariev and Nikolay Nikolayevich Trushchalov -- as terrorists.

Sales said the group has two training facilities in St. Petersburg and provides paramilitary-style training to neo-Nazis.

1. That's pretty weird when our current rulers like both white supremacists and Russians.

4. Mr. Sales has found a way to live on $343 a week on unemployment.

Or he wants to see the old man have the "big one", like Fred Sanford.

2. Good move, but it still seems kind of... 'safe'

I mean the Atomwaffen Division is murdering people and the Daily Stormer has had 2 members of it go on to do shooting sprees and was tied to Joshua Ryne Goldberg, who fed information to Islamic terrorists.

Sounds kind of terrorist-y to me, are they going to get sanctioned anytime soon?

5. Are we sure they are "neo-nazis" and not just anti-Putin??
