Elena Panina commented on information about ultra-right and neo-fascist groups that played a key role in what happened in Bolivia

State Duma deputy, member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Elena Panina commented on information appeared in a number of media about ultra-right and neo-fascist groups that played a key role in the November coup in Bolivia. She recalled that in 1980 in Bolivia there was a bloody coup that resembled the Pinochet coup in Chile. At the same time, there were many Nazis surrounded by the coup leader Garcia Mesa, the most odious of whom was a war criminal, the former chief of the Gestapo of Lyons, Klaus Barbier. “The far-right political structures that arose during this period went into the shadows, but were not liquidated and dissolved. Now the right-wing radicals have come to power, their hatred and aggression against the Quechua and Aymara Indians supporting Morales can be traced. Demonstrative violation of the Indian symbols frankly racist actions are going on, “Panina said. In her opinion, “all this recalls the activation of the ultra-right in Ukraine after the 2014 coup and carries the risk of civil war for Bolivia.” Earlier, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the ultra-right, who openly called for interracial, class confrontation, took on the first roles in public life in Bolivia.
