Russian police are denying that more than 150 skinheads who clashed with them last week are members of a neo-Nazi group, according to the Union of Councils for Soviet Jews. The denial came despite Russian newspaper reports that the skinheads belong to a group called Russian Purpose, whose leader attacked an African-American U.S. marine in 1998.
