CEP Senior Advisor Alexander Ritzmann interviewed on podcast for topic: "We shed light on the different sources of funding within the right-wing extremist scene, the partial connections to organized crime, the relationship between rocker groups and brotherhoods as well as networks and structures and address the connection between personal economic interests and the connection to the overarching ideology. Current developments in the wake of the recent club bans and self-dissolution of brotherhoods will also be discussed."

CEP-GLOBSEC Webinar: Violent Right-Wing Extremism in Bulgaria and Hungary | Nov 14, 2023

Right-wing extremist groups and networks have been growing substantially in many European countries in recent years, including in Central Europe. Many of these movements espouse new right-wing extremist narratives, have a pro-Russian stance, and reject globalization as well as what they call “western” values. All of these movements reject human equality and try to institutionalize inequality. In both Hungary and Bulgaria, the far-right scene consists of a diverse set of actors: from political parties to paramilitary groups to networks outside the formal political structure, such as football clubs. 

Sources of financing are as diverse as the actors themselves, and usually include many different streams, such as cultural platforms, for income. In both countries, online media platforms and social media are misused by the extreme right for propaganda and recruitment. In both Bulgaria and Hungary, government reactions are in many instances not decisive enough to effectively contain these movements.

In Their Own Words:

We reiterate once again that the brigades will directly target US bases across the region in case the US enemy commits a folly and decides to strike our resistance fighters and their camps [in Iraq].
