The Russian Imperial Movement (RIM; Russian: Русское Имперское Движениe, romanized Russkoe imperskoe dvizhenie, RID)[1] is a Russian ultranationalist,[2] far-right paramilitary organisation.[3] RIM is based in Saint Petersburg and their leader is Stanislav Vorobyev.[3]

RIM is part of a broader cluster of extreme-right "political Orthodoxy" groups in Russia that promote monarchy, extol Russia's tsarist past, and draw inspiration from the violent, antisemitic Black Hundreds.[1] Others within the movement include the groups "For Faith and Fatherland" and the modern revival of the "Union of the Russian People."[1] Websites connected to RIM espouse antisemitism.[1]

In 2008, RIM formed its paramilitary branch, called the Imperial Legion. The group maintains two training facilities in Saint Petersburg.[2] After the War in Donbass broke out in eastern Ukraine in April 2014, the RIM began training and sending volunteer soldiers to the pro-Russian groups in the conflict in July.[3] Some members of the Imperial Legion have also worked as mercenaries in the Middle East and North Africa. On January 30, 2020, it was reported that Vladimir Skopinov, who had also previously fought in Donbass and Syria, died in Libya. He was the second member of the Legion to die in Libya.[4]

On 6 April 2020, the U.S. Department of State added the Russian Imperial Movement and three of its leaders (Stanislav Anatolyevich Vorobyev, Denis Valliullovich Gariyev, and Nikolay Nikolayevich Trushchalov) to the Specially Designated Global Terrorist list,[5] making it the first white supremacist group to be designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department.[2]

RE: Russian Imperial Movement designated Terrorist by US State Dept
It is funny how a Russian supposed WN movement is labeled terrorist before all the AMERICAN KKK or NEO-NAZI groups.

This is what the Russian govt. has said:

Russian officials have condemned the U.S. embargo on RIM, calling it a part of “the Russophobia of the U.S. establishment.”
