Far Eastern Fascism

Born in Anastasy Vonsyatsky, Rodzaevsky becoming its leader. He modeled himself on Benito Mussolini, and also used the Swastika as one of the symbols of the movement.

Rodzaevsky collected around himself personally selected White émigrés with a central office in Harbin, the "Russian Far East Moscow", and links in twenty-six nations around the world. The most important of these international posts was in New York City.

Manchukuo

Russian Club in Manzhouli.

Rodzaevsky had around 12,000 followers in Manchukuo. During the 2,600nd anniversary of the founding of the Empire of Japan, Rodzaevsky with a select group paid his respects to Emperor Hirohito at the official celebration in the region.

The fascists installed a great Siberia and Russian Far East areas; Japan was apparently interested in creating a White Russian state in Outer Manchuria.

World War II and execution

During World War II, Rodzaevsky tried to launch an open struggle against Bolshevism, but Japanese authorities limited the RFP’s activities to acts of sabotage in the Soviet Union. A notorious anti-Semite, Rodzaevsky published numerous articles in the party newspapers Our way and The Nation; he was also the author of the brochure "Judas’ End"[1] and the book "Contemporary Judaisation of the World or the Jewish Question in the 20th Century".[2]

At the end of the war, Rodzaevsky began to believe that the Soviet regime under Joseph Stalin was evolving into a nationalist one. He gave himself up to Soviet authorities in Harbin in 1945, with a letter that shows striking similarities with the doctrines of National Bolshevism:

"I issued a call for an unknown leader, ... capable of overturning the Jewish government and creating a new Russia. I failed to see that, by the will of fate, of his own genius, and of millions of toilers, Comrade J V Stalin, the leader of the peoples, had become this unknown leader".

He returned to Russia, where he was promised freedom and a job in one of the Soviet newspapers. Instead, he was arrested (along with fellow party-member Lev Okhotin), tried, and sentenced to be shot. He was executed in a Lubyanka prison cellar.

In 2001, a book by Rodzaevsky, Zaveshchanie russkogo fashista ("The Last Will of a Russian fascist"), was published in Russia.
