A fascinating post, though a year and a half old - Militant Orthodoxy in Georgia.
My understanding was that the Russian political youth organization Nashi, mentioned at the end of the post, is explicitly anti-fascist, though it is a front group for Putin and has been involved in physical conflicts with other political organizations, both communist and liberal, so that would seem to beg the question of what Nashi is if not fascist.
As one commenter on the linked-to thread said, the photo above looks like something out of Flash Gordon. It's hard to imagine such outfits and silly salutes inspiring anyone, but fascist aesthetics so often rest on, ironically, the caricature of homoerotic parody.
For the record every Georgian I have ever met in person (all here in the States, at least that I know of) has been the furthest thing from a fascist. But this sort of phenomenon does appear to be on the rise in Eastern Europe. I wonder if there is any way for traditional forms of Christianity to seek cultural and political influence with any success outside of the patterns of fascism seen in the early 20th century and today.
