Italy’s Deputy PM Matteo Salvini has said that an investigation into a “Ukrainian group’s” plot to kill him was what led to a major seizure of weapons, including an air-to-air missile and neo-Nazi memorabilia, by police this week.
Italian police said on Monday that a cache of weapons, including a French-made air-to-air missile, had been seized from a neo-Nazi gang operating in northern Italy.
The police statement originally said the group had fought against Donbass separatists in Ukraine’s eastern breakaway region.
Police found assault rifles, a sub-machine gun, bayonets, pistols, shotguns and Nazi plaques, as well as the missile, which the group reportedly obtained from Qatar and was allegedly attempting to sell.
Western fake media had a field day with the news, immediately linking the neo-Nazi gang to what they said were “Russia-backed separatists,” apparently misquoting the initial police statement that said just the opposite.
It’s emerged that among three men arrested during the raid was Fabio Del Bergiolo, a former border security inspector who had run in Senate elections for the neo-fascist Forza Nuova party in 2001.
