Default Balkan foreign fighters: from Syria to Ukraine

Thanks to a "lurker" for the pointer to this four pg report:http://www.iss.europa.eu/uploads/med...n_fighters.pdf

A few passages:
Quote:
Only with the emergence of Balkan jihadists fighting for Daesh did the question of foreign fighters come under the spotlight in the region.
None of the countries has been efficient at producing counter-narratives whether through main-stream media or via Internet and social media channels.
Ukrainian fighters remain just ‘ordinary extremists’. The lack of political will to tackle and condemn right-wing extremism is more than evident.
