At War with Empire
By Edward Limonov Browse author

I thought about some nice, lyrical subject for that my column at "eXile", but then Mark Ames asked me to write about last adventures of my gorgeous party because first thing what Mark heard on the news coming from US to Russia, were the news about militia platoons, storming general headquarters of NBP. So, I will report on some events, the only principal ones.

National Bolsheviks strike Empire

On August 28, Veshniakov the head of Central Electoral Committee, the man of State was hit by a jet of mayonnaise. Two members of NBP were detained.

December 3, 2003. 14 members of National Bolsheviks Party have seized roof of Ministry of Justice. In the same time abouit 100 Party activists staged a meeting near the entrance to Ministry. Some activists on the roof have handcuffed themselves to the roof's fence. They have posters. "Liberty or Death!" and "We will teach you to love the Constitution!" 18 activists were detained. They stated that their goal was to express Party protest against refusal of Ministry to register NBP as All-Russian Political Party. Because that refusal is actual denial to NBP of the right to participate in coming elections.

December 7. A poet and member of NBP, Natalia Tchernova attacked with eggs His Highness Prime Minister Kasyanov. Minister has received egg in his ear. Poet Tchernova was transferred to Prison N6 for women. Russian state is very angry.

Empire Strikes Back

December 11. Head of militsiya, special militsiya forces and about 50 FSB officers erupted in to  office of NBP at 2nd Frunzenskaia, 7. I was there at the moment. About 30 of Party activists were detained, then released. FSB officers have tried to recruit some of our activists. Colonel Frolov of FSB demanded to see a contract between landlord, "Moscom Imuschestvo," and us. When Colonel read a statement of Arbitration Court he felt exhaustion.

He said: "I would be better to be in trenches." Because he figured out that we have time to appeal at least until January 20.

December 15. Alexander Averin, press-secretary of NBP was summoned to an Army draft commission, despite the fact that he is a student of pregraduate year. In a few hours Averin has discovered that he is a draftee and will be sent to Army barracks today. In protest Averin has cut his veins. Scared doctors sent him home.

December 15. Group of National Bolsheviks have handcuffed themselves to a building of Department of Justice at Nijnii Novgorod.

Deember 16. In the entrance of building where he lives in in Nijni Novgorod, Dmitri Elkin, Secretary of Party Regional Organization, was beaten up by two masked men.

December 17. Moscow Party activist Mikhail Sokov disappeared while working on Party newspaper, "Limonka." Later his corpse was found in a Moscow morgue. His body had traces of savage beating, but there was no police investigation of his death.

NBP's Second Offensive

December 24, Moscow. At IV Congress of "United Russia," members of NBP attacked with eggs the leader of "United Russia" [and Minister of Interior -- ed.] Boris Gryzlov. Three NBP members were detained. Next day they were sentenced to 15 days of imprisonment each.

December 26. Central Committee of NBP announced boycott of Presidential elections of March 14, 2004.

Then it was New Year's Celebration afterwards. The war between  Empire and NBP started again with new force.

January 5, 2004. At Zuzin's court in Moscow trial has started against our newspaper "General Line" [this is how "Limonka" was renamed after it was closed by court decision in September 2002 -- ed.] "General Line" is accused of being "an extremist publication."

January 6. Tula's National Bolsheviks have seized roof of Department of Justice in Tula Region.

Empire Strikes Again

January 13. In late evening, FSB officers arriving in two cars have kidnapped Dmitri Bakhur, member of NBP Committee. We have two witnesses of kidnapping. Bakhur was driven out of Moscow and savagely beaten up. At one point he was even beaten with fire extinguisher. For the moment, Bakhur is in 1st City Hospital of Moscow.
