Russian prosecutors have banned Adolf Hitler's 1925 book Mein Kampf as extremist in an attempt to combat the growing allure of far-right politics.

Despite including tracts that are both anti-Jewish and anti-Russian, it has been championed by some Russian far-right groups. "The book justifies the destruction of non-Aryan races," the prosecutor's office said.
