The three opposition parties who won seats in Russia’s parliamentary elections openly profess hatred, a new report says. The three parties, Motherland, the LDPR and the Communists, all of whom received roughly the same number of votes in December as the pro-government United Russia Party, have members with histories of anti-Semitic and xenophobic statements, according to “In Their Own Words: Extremist Nationalists in the New Duma,” released this week by the Washington-based Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet Union.
