Russian Volunteer Corps

The Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK) is a new volunteer unit made up of far-right militants from Russia fighting on the Ukrainian side. Information about the group first appeared in August on a Telegram channel, which belongs to a well-known Russian neo-Nazi entrepreneur named Denis “WhiteRex” Kapustin (Nikitin). Denis Kapustin himself appears in the video with a gun in his hands. The RDK doesn’t currently have a separate entity status. The group is made up of cadres from various armed formations. The number of people involved in the unit is not known; only a few people have emerged in the public arena. The RDK uses symbols of the Russian Liberation Army (or ROA, who collaborated with the Nazis during World War II), which is typical for Russian neo-Nazis, and found itself at the centre of a political scandal surrounding the Russian opposition in Ukraine.
