France to ban Turkish ultranationalist Grey Wolves group

France plans to ban Turkish far-right nationalist group, the Grey Wolves.

Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin described the organisation as “particularly aggressive” and told legislators on Monday that he would be seeking its dissolution at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

The ban follows recent incidents in France involving the Grey Wolves group amid growing tensions between France and Turkey and over the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

In one incident last weekend, France 3 television reported that the Armenian memorial near Lyon was tagged with pro-Turkish slogans and inscriptions with the Grey Wolves name.

The group was also linked to two anti-Armenian demonstrations by people carrying Turkish flags in the Lyon and Grenoble areas.

Videos of the demonstrations were published online by social media accounts using Grey Wolves symbols.
