On August 29, in the evening, at about 8.06 p.m. the group of thugs, wearing black masks and white gloves have attacked meeting of Moscow regional organization of National-Bolsheviks Party. It was crowd of more than thirty thugs, armed with pneumatical pistols, baseball bats, and "fires," used by football fanats.
Building near metro "Avtozavodskaia" was guarded by seven National-Bolsheviks, two of them girls. But they stand up bravely against assault. Four NBP activists were wounded: Dmitri Elizarov have both of his arms fractured, Stanislav Diakonov have three fractures on his head, he was also stabbed with knife. Van belonging to NB party was put on fire, its windows were broken. But no invader was let into buildings hall, not speaking about fours floor, were meeting took place. Receiving rebuff assailants fleed towards the bus, N576 "Moscow-Korolev," what have deposited them earlier.
By pure chance road-militiamen saw crowd of thugs running towards their bus, and have alarmed patrol car by the way of radio. Milita patrol-car started pursuit. Finally bus N576 was stopped near Lefortovski tunnel. All passengers started to show some special identity cards, protesting against detention. But detentionw as brief, because new personages have arrived: the general from Moscow Department of Ministry of Internal Affairs with his consorts. General ordered to release thugs. His order was duely executed. But militia-men from patrol-car have had enough time before arrival of general to made a list of thugs. So on August 31 "Kommersant" have published a list of persons detained.
Communist Party of Russian Federation have protested against assult on NBP activists, happened to take place on its territory. Because forth floor of the building where bloody battle have occurred is property of CPRF. Comrade Zuganov send telegramme to Minister of Interior Mr. Nugaliev. Political parties of opposition including "Rodina," "SPS," "Yabloko" have released protesting statements. Under such wave of protest on September 1st criminal case was "open" by militia investigators of South Administrative District.
What we know?
We know that amongst detained thugs in the bus "N576 Moscow-Korolev" were few people already participated in three other mass-assaults on National Bolsheviks (on January 29, February 12 and March 5). We also know that they detained in the bus at least three persons amongst them are leaders of State Created Criminal Organization "Nashi." Their names were cited by Russian press as such. They also are activists of various fan-clubs of football. Criminal charges were brought against them some months ago, for three previous assaults. But their cases were never brought to court. We hope that now, under great pressure of opposition all four criminal charged will be reunited in one charge against activisits of State Created Criminal Organization "Nashi."
Television, press, radio reports have stated that assault was directed towards members of leftists organizations, holding their meeting at building near metro "Avtozavodskaia." It is not accurate information. The gathering was weekly meeting of Moscow NBP organization. Just a few representatives of other political organisation were present. They have intention after the end of NBP meeting to discuss the details of march "Anticapitalism-2005," planned at middle-September. But those few people were upstairs. It was assault against NBP.
Another details. Assault have started at 8.06 p.m. but at 8 p.m. news programmes of radio stations as well as information agencies have annonced prematurely that mass fight between skeen-heads and some Azerbaidjans is taking place near metro Avtozavodskaia. News agencies claim that false and premature information was spread by the office of Moscow Department of Ministry of Interior. Such fact is the proof that Moscow Department of MBD was knowing that crime will be committed.
Assault of August 29 is different then previous three. First of all is visible attempt to do it anonymous (masks, gloves in order to hide faces and digital imprints), while previous assaults were demonstrative (interviews to state television, invited by assailants). The order of thugs were: made it anonymous. Second: firearms were employed for the first time. It is escalation of violence, even if nobody was killed, violence was of such intensity that some newspaper photographs demonstrated the pools of blood. Party van have undergone ferocious attacks, having for goal to arson it. Despite the fact that two Nationa-Bolsheviks were trapped in it assailants have had at first fired at its windows, then throw into van "fires." So the political project of Mr. Surkov "Nashi" have degenerated into violent punitive organisation of arsonits and killers, into organisation of State fashisme. Created for the purpose to struggle with NBP, "Nashi" obediently do their task. Is Mr. Surkov and Mr. Putin are happy with them?
No, I don't think so. In every country events such as assault of August 29 are qualified as terrible crimes. No exuces can be made for such state ordered violence. Assault of August 29 will be understood by every Russian, by every foreigner as political motivated State crime.
NBP will press Russian justice to punish thugs from Nashi. We have full support of Russian opposition parties. I believe also that we have support of all freedom loving people abroad. Help us to bring down Putin's dictature. In those days, when tragedy of Beslan have been remembered by Russian people I am asking leaders of foreign countries: please have a courage to boycotte bloody Mr. Putin: don't give him a hand: his hands have blood of Beslan's children and those of my camrades, NVP activists.
