unusual russian fascist propaganda newspaper published in america. The former White Russian officers Anastase Anastasievich Vonsiatsky (1898-1965) as Vogel (Leader) and Donat I. Kunle as secretary founded in 1933 the Russian National Revolutionary Labor and Workers Peasant Party of Fascists, also known as the All Russian National Revolutionary Party. Insisting that they were not anti-Semitic, they claimed their sole goal was to overthrow the Soviets and replace them with "a government elected by the people, of the people and for the people." Extolling the virtues of Adolf Hitler in its pages, Fashist was their official organ and published in Connecticut. Indicted in 1942 for consorting with German-American Bund, Vonitsky escaped conviction. (22)
