The German authorities have imposed a European-wide entry ban on the Russian National Socialist and martial artist Denis Kapustin, who is also known as “Denis Nikitin”.
Kapustin is the founder of the NS fashion label “White Rex”, which is older than a decade, and one of the most influential players in the right-wing martial arts and hooligan scene. He has been the main organizer of martial arts events of the Nationalist scene throughout Europe for many years now.
According to the German authorities, Moscow-born "Kapustin was banned because of his efforts against the liberal democratic constitution". The 34-year-old National Socialist, who grew up in Cologne where he moved with his family as a child, was deregistered in February this year from Cologne, and had his settlement permit scrapped later in May.
According to "right-wing extremism researcher" Robert Claus who deals with the patriotic right and football fan culture, Kapustin’s entry ban will gravely affect his networking and business.

“Denis ‘Nikitin’ Kapustin has been a key figure in the extreme right-wing hooligan scene in Europe over the past few years, and his activities in martial arts and his ‘White Rex’ brand have greatly advanced the professionalization of extreme right-wing violence,” Claus says.
“The entry ban will enormously restrict his room for maneuver, his networking and business,” he believes.
According to the Schengen rules on banning unwanted persons from entering the Schengen Area, when one member country bans a person, it binds all other Member States in the banning.
The Schengen Member Countries previously in May barred the American preacher Steven Anderson known for its truthful statements, particularly against LGBT bastards. In one of his speeches, Anderson had claimed that LGBT stands for “Let God Burn Them” causing anger among LGBT organizations and other parties concerned with these issues.
