The Alt-Right is a White Nationalist movement that propelled Donald Trump to the White House. One of the cornerstones of Alt-Right ideology is the genetic superiority of the white European ethnic groups especially over African-Americans and Hispanics. President-elect Trump has appointed Steve Bannon, the leader of the Alt-Right, as his chief strategist. Bannon's media group - Breitbart Media - is a major outlet for racist and anti-Semitic viewpoints as well as fake news.
Is it any wonder that Steve Bannon is attracted to Vladimir Putin's ethno-authoritarian rule in Russia? Here is Bannon on Putin:
When Vladimir Putin, when you really look at some of the underpinnings of some of his beliefs today, a lot of those come from what I call Eurasianism; he’s got an adviser who harkens back to Julius Evola and different writers of the early 20th century who are really the supporters of what’s called the traditionalist movement, which really eventually metastasized into Italian fascism. A lot of people that are traditionalists are attracted to that.
One of the reasons is that they believe that at least Putin is standing up for traditional institutions, and he’s trying to do it in a form of nationalism — and I think that people, particularly in certain countries, want to see the sovereignty for their country, they want to see nationalism for their country. They don’t believe in this kind of pan-European Union or they don’t believe in the centralized government in the United States. They’d rather see more of a states-based entity that the founders originally set up where freedoms were controlled at the local level.

[W]e the Judeo-Christian West really have to look at what he’s [Putin] talking about as far as traditionalism goes — particularly the sense of where it supports the underpinnings of nationalism — and I happen to think that the individual sovereignty of a country is a good thing and a strong thing. I think strong countries and strong nationalist movements in countries make strong neighbors, and that is really the building blocks that built Western Europe and the United States, and I think it’s what can see us forward.
You know, Putin’s been quite an interesting character. He’s also very, very, very intelligent. I can see this in the United States where he’s playing very strongly to social conservatives about his message about more traditional values . . .
Bannon is now bringing his hate site to Germany, and is already stirring up ethnic hate in the country: Germany's Secret Islamic Horror: How Blind Elites are Destroying a Once-Great Nation.
