Forty Seven Prisoners
By Edward Limonov Browse author

From newspaper "Trud" I have learned today that I am "small, unsignificant man, wearing ridiculous hat, slowly moving between two huge bodyguards." Article of journalist from Briansk was printed next to article about pedophil, unmasked as teacher. As National-Bolsheviks Party becoming more and more important in political life of Russia, the more dirt throwed at me by FSB influenced-newspapers and television. Fortunately, anti-Putin’s media is stronger than pro-Putin.

National-Bolsheviks Party have started anti-monetization campaign as early as August 2, when her activists have attacked the ministry of Health and Social Development. Notre camarades Gromov, Tishin, Klionov, Globa-Mikhailenko, Ejov, Korchunski, Bespalov have seized few offices of Ministry, office of Minister Zurabov among them. For that peaceful crime they were punished by five-years sentence for each of them on December 20. Russia was more or less calm, preparing itself to season of greetings, for a long celebration period. Not National-Bolsheviks Party, week earlier on December 14, crowd of National-Bolsheviks have invaded the reception office of Presidents Administration in the center of Moscow, near Kremlin, on Iliinka street. Forty (!) our comrades were arrested and placed at moscows prisons. Among them nine girls. Their only crime actually was their demand of Putin’s Resignation. They were armed with leaflets and thin brochures of Russian Constitution. They are still in prison. They are accused of vandalism, damage of property and "seizure and holding of State power," Article 278 of Penal Code of Russia, punished from 12 to 20 years. Arrest of forty youngsters most of them students, accused of overthrowing Government by invading reception room choked little bit even Russian public opinion, but season of Greetings have distracted everybody.

Then, all celebrations over, Russians went to their usual lifes on January 11th: They went to metro, to public transport only to disover that order in new. 103 million of Russians, or two thirds of entire population have lost their privileges of free acsess to public transportation. Elder people proved to be class mostly suffered from Law number 122, what Mr. Zurabov have prepared. On August 2 our comrades have protested against that very law number 122. So, angry, frustrated, elderly people started to gather at some strategical points of Russian cities by hundreds or by thousands. At Saint-Petersburg, at Samara, Kazan, Perm, Barnaul and many others. They were supported by some opposition political parties, National-Bolsheviks came first. And were amiably greeted everywhere, as party of forty-nine political prisoners, as party of seven condemned to five years imprisonement for protesting against anti-peoples law number 122. Mighty "tsunami" of peoples protest have rolled over Russia from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad.

Stupid machine of State screamed, alarm chirped, machine stopped and backed. Angry, vexed ministres and prosecutors are in search of guilty ones. And they have found them. Public prosecutor of Samara Region Mr. Efremov on January 12 have stated that organizers of pensioners meeting of Samara "are National-Bolsheviks from Edward Limonov’s Party." Saint-Petersburg’s Governer Mme Matvienko, talking on Chanel 5th Saint-Petersburgs television have accused NBP of organising meetings at Saint-Petersburg. On January 19 our accusers have joined ministre of Finances Mr. Kudrin. "We have to investigate who decided to gain from anxiety of elders", said Kudrin. And added, "inside foster homes have appeared diagrams of blocking highways and they were driven not at all by pensioners, but by Limonovtsi and KPRF."

So National-Bolsheviks Party have gained politcal weight. We are hated by the State and its representatives. But they also start talking to us. The leader of Saint-Petersburgs Regional NBP organisation Andrei Dmitriev was among few delegates sended by 15 thousand strong crowd to Smolni for negotations with Governer Matvienko.

Matvienko have promised to Dmitriev to prepare adress to Putin, asking for revision of sentence of National-Bolsheviks, who have seized Zurabov’s office on August 2, as well as accusations of our forty "decembrists", who demanded Putin to resign. Personally, I don’t beleive in Matvienko’s promises made on January 17. Few days later some of participants at Saint-Petersburg’s protests were detained. But undeniable fact is that after we joined our forces with pencioners, with people then haughty, arrogant power started to talk to us. At Kaluga NBP leader have spoken to vice-governer, was invated to talk.

However, Putin’s servants didn’t stop to work against National-Bolshewiks. On December 21 our office on Maria Ulianova was invaded by team of investigators: they worked all day and have seized Party documents. Moscow’s Department of Property pushed by FSB have breaked off contract of rent of our office. Arbitration Court will prononce its decision in the end of January. It will be a miracle if Court will take our side in conflict. If demanded to leave office, we will look for another Place.

And State is stubbornly preparing "Process of Forty." According to our Lawyers, cheaf-investigator Mr. ALimov have received order to finish investigation until the end of January. As article 278 is State crime, it will be judged by jury. Alimov, seems very happy with jury. Will they place 12 FSB-oficers as members of jury? Anyway, imagine forty accused, nine girls among them, forty lawyers, twelve members of jury, hundred twenty militia-men guarding accused, because regulations require three guards for one prisoner. Add to them juge himself, his helpers, and you will have on opera kind of Boris Godunov at Bolshoi Theatre. It will be such a shame, such disgrace. We are looking forward to it.

No, Putin is not Kutchma. He will give orders to fire at peaceful crowds. At them, wearing orange or limon colors, he will give orders to fire, as at Dubrovka, as at Beslan. Our task is to make such a climate in Russia that his orders will be met with disobedience.
