Mixed martial arts fighter Aleksandr Emelianenko had to rely on words instead of fists after a TV show accused him of links with nationalists.

I think Emelianenko is using "nationalist" in a different way than "patriot". Extreme nationalism here in USA sometimes gets named something different - "jingo-ism". It's too bad the hooligans took over the term "nationalist" and ruined it for everybody.
There is no "extremism" in the defense of one's nation and society. There is only win or lose. Ask the American Indians who initially welcomed the European "immigrants", only to realize too late that they lost their land and identity.
What is wrong with being a "nationalist" who is proud of his country and willing to defend her against evil people who wish to destroy her?
A people either defend their country or they lose it. There is no other course for a nation. Take the decline of European-based America for example.
