The month of June was full of tragical events for National-Bolsheviks Party. On June 17 commando of special police forces have stormed Party headquarters at Maria Ulianova Street. It took them two and half hours to break five metal doors behind which 15 National-Bolsheviks have had barricaded themselves. Four of them have had time to cut their veins, protesting against that brutal eviction by the police.
On June 29, the court of Moscovskaya oblast have prono„nced decision to LIQUIDATE political organisation of National Bolsheviks so-called MOO NBP, or Inregional Social Organization National Bolsheviks Party. What mesures will be taken by the police and local administrations in order fulfill that liquidation is unclear, because Russia has no previous precedents of liquidation of political party. Maybe will be forbidden by speical court decision the symbols of National Bolsheviks, their red flag with a black hammer and sickle? Maybe also that police forces will be given orders to break all protests and meetings where National Bolsheviks activists will be present? Up to now it is unclear. Regional administrations and regional police forces are awaiting orders from capital. We, National-Bolsheviks have understood liquidation of our Party as interdiction, as a ban. We are understanding that our constitutional rights to expresss our political beliefs by creating political party were violated. We will appeal to Supreme Court in order to overturn decision of Court of Moskovskaya Oblast. Then, if Supreme Court decision will be negative one, we will appeal to European Court of Justice. I also stated in numerous interviews that very day that Party will not obey to liquidation. Public Prosecutor of Moskovskaya Oblast immediately reacted to my statement by threat of criminal case against me.
Party liquidation have had an enormous response from Russian and foreign medias. We counted more then two hundred reports only on that very day of June 29. It is understandable, because previous precedent of a ban of Political Party may be found in Russian History somwhere in the End of twentieth.
Why? Why the Kremlin Administration have forced that liquidation of NBP? In my opinion they commited political crime and they commited mistake. By ban on our activity Kremlin have promoted us. They made us even more popular then we were before.
Next day, the June 30 again was a day of National Bolsheviks Party in whole Russia. Nikulinski Regional Court of Moscow have started a trial of 39 National-Bolsheviks activists, who have seized Reception Office of Presidents Administration on December 14, 2004. Nikulinski court is located on outskirts of Moscow. At first I was confused, why judge Shikhanov, who is judge of Tverskoi district of Moscow will have judging in Nikulinski Court. But when I arrived at location of Nikulinski Court I understood why. The court building is surrounded by solide fence, he is placed outside of the street, it has neighbouring green slope of a hill, populated by trees and bushes. It was obviosly choosen because of its location, as a building which will be easy to defend. Defenders were so numerous, as if cheifs of Al Qaeda were on trial here. Defenders were belonging to: special police, usual policeman, Federal security people wearing civilian clothes. Dogs were barking, policeman speaking at walkie-talkies, special agents were making photos and filming on video, every person who appeared near Court Building. About hundred of National-Bolsheviks were keeped at some distance by policemen. About same number of journalists were occuping green slope of the hill in front of Court building. The parents of prisoners were crowding near the entrance of the fence. One might have had a strong impression that Russia is ruled by paranoiaks. Place had a look of a military camp. Meanwhile, inside of the building more then twenty lawyers, thirty-nine accused boys and girls, and three times that amount of special policemen, armed with machine-guns plus two public prosecutors and judge have started trial. Outsiders: parents of boys and girls, journalists, National-Bolsheviks were not admitted at court room during the first day of trial. Only on July 8 I succeeded in going to court room. There I saw enormous specially built cage, made of steel with a three separate sections, where accused were seati
ng on the benches. Jesus Christe! I never see such a brutal looking court room. When five girls were convoyed to toilets, they were chained by mutual chaine, as an ancient slaves, somewhere on the slave markets of Algiere. So shameful and disgusting was that chaine walking that parents started to scream in paine. Trial will be going on through all summer, I guess.
National-Bolsheviks Party Activity didn’t stop with Party liquidation. Last weekend for two days National-Bolsheviks Party Conference was held in Moscow at undisclosed location. About fifty regional leaders of Party were discussing our party problems. We purged Party from antiparty elements, from traitors and provocateurs. Four persons were expelled from Party ranks, regional organisation of Novosibirsk was liquidated and founded again. So, we are working. Number of Party members have risen drastically. We have now 22 thousands of adherents. I am looking forward with a great hope.
