Soldiers of Odin are spreading virtually across the world after it was started as an anti-immigration street patrol movement in Kemi in Finland last year.
Soldiers of Odin Germany, Soldiers of Odin Portugal, Soldiers of Odin Melbourne and Soldiers of Odin United States are among the accounts that have appeared in social media, indicating that the movement may be about to gain a foothold in the world.
An expert at the Finnish police authorities that specializes in extremist groups, told the Finnish news agency FNB that the majority of the foreign groups are support groups that are not patrolling the streets.
– However the group has spread to other countries and continents virtually, police inspector Timo Kilpeläinen said.
In some countries, including Norway, the group has also been established with street patrols. This also applies to countries including Estonia, Denmark and Britain, according to Kilpeläinen.
