Far-right Russians cite Breivik as a 'hero'

Activists post messages on social networking sites praising Anders Breivik for killings in Norway.

    The vast majority of Russians have condemned the killings in Norway by Anders Breivik, but there is an alarming number of people there who quietly share Breivik's opinions and some who even think he is a hero.

    Meanwhile, the pro-government youth group Nashi, which was praised by Breivik in his writings, has sought to distance itself from his comments.
