Rape of Europa 2.0 Edit

In February 2021, he published the Rape of Europe 2.0 manifesto in Novaya Gazeta, in which he criticized the New Ethics, and stated that Europe was in a deep ethical crisis, urging Russia to stop focusing on European values. The author's text says that Europe is turning into a new ethical Reich, the standards of which are developed under the influence of queer activists, fem-fanatics and ecopsychopaths. Bogomolov urged to build a new right-wing ideology outside of radical orthodoxy, but strictly and irreconcilably defending the values of a complex world based on a complex person.[9]
