Russia’s 15-year-old junior champion Arty Severjuchin has outraged the world with a Nazi speech Source: Screenshot FIA PARIS – Fifteen-year-old Russian go-kart rider Arto Severjuchin is under investigation by the International Automobile Federation (FIA). The reason is the Nazi victory on the podium after winning the European Championship in the Algarve, Portugal over the weekend. The incident happened while playing the Italian anthem as a former Russian junior champion competes with an Italian license. During it, Severjuchin pounded on his chest, “cheering” and then laughed out loud. The video flew around social networks and the pilot became the target of great criticism. “The FIA immediately started investigating Mr Artyom Severjuchin’s unacceptable behavior. He will keep him informed,” the AP quoted the official as saying.
