Russia's Nationalism is raising with each passing day. Being reinforced by old ideas of dictatorship, purity and a extremist government.
Russia's ideals are based off the Soviet Union and an ideal of a pure russian ethnic society ruled by a purely Russian government, these ideals affect immigrants greatly.
Immigrants who live in Russia or non Ethnic Russians are being chased and prosecuted by nationalist groups looking for "purity" mostly lead by the rich and powerful, one example of these is 'Russia for Russians'
Russia has suffered from a lot of pressure from outside countries because of their low intake of immigrants and the racism against them.
By wanting to gain power and achieve purity Russians have become extreme nationalist and want their country to be considered very highly by others.
With the government glorifying the days of the Soviet Union, the thoughts of purity and movements like 'Russia for Russians' and the people giving in on these ideals Russia's nationalism has spiked up and is rising by the day.
