This article argues that Russias various neo-fascist and ultra-nationalist groups are articulating a populism-in-formation around the signifiers order and people, and through the narrative of mischief. The process of signification and context are added to Ernesto Laclaus understanding of the process and politics of the articulation of hegemony. Texts, modes, symbols and narratives of various neo-fascist and ultra-nationalist groups are employed and analyzed to suggest the populism-in-formation that Russian neo-fascism represents. In concluding, the paper suggests that Russias National Bolshevik Party, insofar as they articulate a discourse that mobilizes resonant versions of order and people, and as their narrative mode highlights the mischievous version of masculinity which is dominant in Russian culture and politics, represents the potentiality of Russian neo-fascism to articulate a hegemonic populism.
