There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

He is firmly in the pro-Milosevic camp, and is somewhat notable for making nationalist homemade videos in which he portrays the Serbs as the victims of the wars they started, claims there was a "globalist" conspiracy against Serbia, denies Serbian war crimes, and praises Milosevic as well as various far-right Serbian nationalist figures.
He spent some time in Canada and likes to describe himself as "Serbian-Canadian," although he is now back in Serbia. He has been described as "the Serbian-Canadian Tom Metzger." He also frequently writes conspiracy theorist pieces for the well-known crank website Globalresearch.
Malagurski was once an active Wikipedia editor, until he was more or less permanently banned in 2007, and has written autobiographies of himself in several languages. An ardent self-promoter, he is notable for claiming he was the "Winner, Silver Palm Award, 2009," when in reality, he was one of 14 silver winners in the category "student films", and one of 76 winners overall of said award (after 13 other students had been awarded their Golden Palms) at an obscure film festival in Mexico.
Criticism of his film travesty
In an interview with the magazine Ny Tid, Serbian film critic Vladan Petković describes Malagurski’s film "The Weight of Chains" as "pro-Serbian conspiracy theorist propaganda." According to the interview, "the film is promoted as having been made in Michael Moore’s style, but it totally lacks Moore’s characteristic qualities. Instead Malagurski interviews journalists, politicians, ex-ambassadors and historians, who all promote the same one-sided story of Serbia as a victim of western capitalist imperialism." Petković describes Malagurski’s earlier film "Kosovo can you imagine?" as "even more extreme, horribly made and with absurd explanations of the Kosovo conflict." According to Petković, Malagurski "belongs to the nationalist oriented part of the Serbian diaspora in Toronto, who tend to have very one-sided views on the conflict."
