Susan Smith-Peter comments to Al-Jazeera about Alexander Dugin

Susan Smith-Peter, College of Staten Island, is quoted in this article on “Who is Russian ultranationalist Alexander Dugin?” published after the death of his daughter.

Susan Smith-Peter, a Russian historian and professor at the City University of New York, in the United States, described Dugin’s notions as “fascist”.

“His life’s work has basically been to take fascist ideas and modify them for a Russian audience so that they kind of have this Russian veneer,” Smith-Peter told Al Jazeera.

“And he’s been influencing people on a variety of different levels,” she said.
