AfD (German Youth) -Putin Youth Linkup

Recommended Posts

The youth wing of Germany’s populist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) has formally linked up with the youth wing of Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party.

The move, announced Friday by Der Spiegel, will cause shockwaves among the anti-Putin Western governments and in the controlled media.

United Russia is also the ruling political party, and has 238 (52.89 percent) of the 450 seats in the Russian parliament (State Duma). Its youth wing, “Young Guard of Russia” (YGR), has established formal links with the AfD’s “Young Alternative” (JA) movement.

According to Der Spiegel, Marcus Pretzell, head of the North Rhine Westphalia AfD, laid the foundation for the cooperation when he attended a recent “Yalta International Economic Forum” in Crimea.

“His presence was a signal,” Der Spiegel reported: “Russia is no longer internationally isolated.”

Pretzell also addressed the conference, telling the enthusiastic Russian crowd that the AfD was not only a threat to the German Federal government, but also to the Ukraine,” a comment which went down well on account of the ongoing conflict between the Ukraine and Russia.


The YGR has previously attracted hatred from the West’s controlled media—Der Spiegelincluded—for holding an exhibition in Moscow in February this year which displayed all the crimes committed by US presidents.

To add insult to injury, the exhibition was designed to open on President’s Day in the US.

According to Der Spiegel, other “areas of work” of the YGR include the “defamation of opposition politicians as lesbians, gays, and transvestites.”
