Are usattsy also involved on violent sport related acts like some skinheads *here*? Could usattsy make a strong cult around Kolchak? Could they also have new snorist symbols? Perhaps new versions of old "good" snorist days symbols?--Pedromoderno 15:18, 1 January 2007 (PST)
- In order of the questions:
- - No idea. what kind of violent sports did you mean ?
- - Their central figure (and the reason for their nickname) is Vissarionov but other SNORist figures are probably popular too.
- - In russia proper, the SNORist symbols, as far as I know, have not been banned so their might not be any reasons. *here*, many neo-nazi in europe adopted the celtic cross to circumvent the ban on the swastika. Usattsy (and related groups) in other countries might have had to adopt such symbols if their local one was illegal. Their might however be new, patch-based, symbols that relate to current situation (i.e. the Cyrilic acronym for "Bring It Back").

- I meant violent acts related to sports and not exactly violent sports. It was my language mistake. I was thinking about a paralell with phenomena such as hooligans and organized football (soccer) team support *here* which use often neo-fascist symbols.--Pedromoderno 16:56, 1 January 2007 (PST)
- Quite probably that would happen, yes. Some of the usattsy groups' membership probably overlap with "support crews" in some cities. --Marc Pasquin 06:22, 2 January 2007 (PST)
- Cossack force seem to be more a avowded terrorist group then anything considering they are known to be responsible for a few public killings. While the usattsy do use violence (or the threat of violence) they do try to present themselves as "radical-mainstream". Rethoric aside, they will usualy stay more or less within the law if anyone is watching although they might beat up people in back alleys.
- As to their relationship, CF might see the usattsy as too tame and the later could perceived the former as borderline anarchists. Of course, individuals within the 2 organisations might have different perception. --Marc Pasquin 06:22, 2 January 2007 (PST)
