The Russian National Socialist Party (Russian language:Русская Национальная Социалистическая Партия) is a neo-Nazi party based in Russia.

The party grew out of the followers of Konstantin Kasimovsky, a leading member of Pamyat in the immediate aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union. He split from the Pamyat-led National Patriotic Front in 1992 and formed his own party, the Russian National Union, the following year. This party re-emerged as the RNSP in 1998.

The party bases itself on four principles i.e. Orthodox Christianity, a strong state, aggressive Russian nationalism and non-Marxist socialism. The party symbol is the Labarum of Constantine the Great and since 1999 have published a newspaper Pravoye Soprotivleniye ('Right Resistance'), itself a successor to the earlier journal Shturmovik ('Stormtrooper', a deliberate recalling of Julius Streicher's Der Stürmer).

Internet video showing apparent executions of migrants in August 2007

On 15 August 2007 Victor Milkov, a 23 year old student at the Maykop State Technological Institute in Adygea, and RNSP member, was arrested for distributing a video on the internet which shows two migrants apparently being executed by a "militant wing" of the RNSP.[1][2][3]

It is later identified that the victims were 24 year old Shamil Odamanov from Russia's mainly Muslim Dagestan region, and 20 year old Salakhetdin Azizov from Tajikistan [4][5]. The two men can be heard saying "We were arrested by Russian national socialists" before Odamanov is stabbed and beheaded and Azizov is shot in the head by two masked men dressed in combat fatigues.[6]

According to Russian Minister of the Interior the video is a fake.[7]However, prosecutors say that the video is real.[8][9]
