The Union of Young Fascists — Vanguard (Russian: Союз Юных Фашистов — Авангард, Soyuz Yunykh Fashistov — Avangard) was a boy's youth organization of the Russian Fascist Party. It was founded in 1934 in Harbin, and was made up of Russian nationals aged between 10 and 16.

  • The preservation of Russian children from losing their national identity
  • The systematic education of Russian national spirit
  • Strict observance of the Russian Orthodox faith and the old traditions of Russia
  • a feed for membership of the senior Russian Fascist Party.

The ideology and tactics of the Union were entirely determined by those of the Russian Fascist Party. Membership was obtained on recommendation of an existing member of the Vanguard, or a member of the senior Russian Fascist Party.

The Union was divided into two groups: Junior (10 to 13 years) and Senior (13 to 16 years). Each group was divided into two categories: Second Level (Young Fascist) First Level (Avangardisty).

Commanding posts in the Union were the Senior Source, the Senior District Commander and Senior Divisional Commander.
