Hello! We have breaking news. If you publish this article we'll be gratefull.
See more at www.avtonom.org/eng Krasnodar anarchist has arrested The court
has appointed the punishment for six months imprisonment on settlements.
On January, 21st, Dmitry Ryabinin, anarcho-communist from Krasnodar (South
Russia), the militant of libertarian socialist movement called "Autonomus
Action" was arrested in the court-room and now he is in an investigatory
isolator and waits serving the punishment.
The Krasnodar case no. 2 has finished. Few years ago Russian employees of
the Federal security service (FSB or KGB in the past) tried to jail many our
comrades, accusing them in terrorism. Nowadays all happens again.

The judge of Oktyabrskiy district court Mr. Goncharov pronounced a sentence.
To Dmitry Ryabinin the court has appointed the punishment for six months
imprisonment on settlements. To his comrade Lev Sokolov the court has
appointed the same punishment, but because of his young age and other
extenuating circumstances the punishment was mitigated. It means 1-year
corrective term.

On the judge obvious pressure has been rendered by the employees of FSB.
There has sat the same person (employee of FSB) who was present at the court
hearing on the 13th of January, when the judge declared a break. The
defendants reconciled with a victim, Mr. Dolgov, in the court for 30,000 rbs
(approximately USD 1,000). Mr. Dolgov wrote a statement with the request to
stop the criminal case against Ryabinin and Sokolov.

It's important to say that Sokolov and Ryabinin were accused in hooliganism
first (article 213 of Russian Criminal Code), but because of changes in the
Criminal Code of Russian Federation this accusation disappeared and our
comrades were accused in causing the average physical injuries. Though also
it has not been proved, because on an average physical injury could pretend
only the broken finger and who has broken it was not established. And what
difference if victims asked to stop criminal case?! Neither Ryabinin nor
Sokolov had previous convictions. They had good characteristics from work.

It is so obvious and obvious, that it is not meaningful to paint in detail
with participation in this business of FSB. From fine household fight which
occur daily in considerable quantity "law-enforcement" bodies managed to
untwist political process above active workers of anarcho-communist
movement. If before this incident FSB and the Ministry of Internal Affairs
hadn't an occasion to jail Kuban radical left militants and to intimidate
their comrades then it was presented. The case is forged completely, written
under dictation of competent bodies. It can happen to each of us. And for
this reason it's necessary to defend our comrade Dmitry Ryabinin! We address
to everyone who can help us: distribute this information as it is possible
more widely, contact representatives of mass-media, write to us and offer
the ideas.
