The former head of the UKIP and leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage attended an election rally of the far-right AfD party. He was presented as a model of eurosceptic politician.
Prosecutors have begun a probe into AfD leader Alice Weidel over the alleged use of foreign donations to pay for internet campaigning. The party received large sums of money from donors in Switzerland and Belgium.
The far-right AfD reportedly knew about donations from a Dutch foundation earlier than previously thought. Leading party member Alice Weidel is already facing an investigation over another questionable donation.
Alice Weidel reportedly received €130,000 in campaign donations from Switzerland ahead of 2017 elections. The AfD co-leader's political rivals are now gunning for her resignation.
The far-right firebrand Steve Bannon caused a stir with the news that he was launching a European foundation. Since then, little has happened. Have his partners, especially in Eastern Europe, lost interest?
