American Alt-Right Leaves Facebook for Russian Site VKontakte

American Alt-Right Leaves Facebook for Russian Site VKontakte

"Last weekend, Alabama white nationalist Chad Bagwell told a reporter from The Tennessean that he’d heard about Saturday’s White Lives Matter rally in Tennessee on VKontakte."

"VK’s founder and former CEO, Pavel Durov, was deposed from the company in 2014, shortly after he refused the Kremlin’s invitation to block opposition candidate Alexei Navalny’s page and to hand over data on activist users to the Russian government. (Durov’s shares were bought up by allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin.)"
