(en) alas barricadas: Russian anarchist prisoner Dmitry Buchenkov receives political asylum in Lithuania, his brother confirmed. (ca, it)

Date Tue, 3 Jul 2018 09:09:55 +0300

The 38-year-old associate professor of political science was accused of participating in riots and assaulting six policemen at the protest on the eve of the inauguration of President Vladimir Putin in May 2012. The demonstration was one of a series of large protests unleashed mainly because of the anger at the evidence of electoral fraud and the consternation before the decision of Putin to return to the presidency after a period of four years as prime minister. More than 30 people were prosecuted in connection with the protests, and more than 20 were sentenced to prison or served a term of imprisonment. One of the protesters was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. ---- Buchenkov says he did not participate in the protest, since that day, May 6, 2012, was happening with his parents in Nizhny Novgorod: about 400 kilometers from Moscow. This was confirmed by the road-control system, which registered Buchenkov's car traveling to Nizhny Novgorod on May 5: the day before the protest, and then returning to Moscow on May 8: two days after the protest. However, the court decided to ignore this evidence and approved an arrest warrant.

Dmitry was arrested on December 2, 2015 and the next day he was sent to the "Vodnik" SIZO-5 prison in Moscow, where he remained for 15 months. While in custody, Dmitry Buchenkov was subjected to a special regime: a camera was installed in his cell, he was denied visits from friends and family, as well as communications with other prisoners. During his imprisonment in prison, he was only allowed to make two phone calls.

In March 2017, he was transferred to house arrest, from which he fled in November 2017. This was possible because he was not controlled with an electronic monitoring bracelet due to lack of resources. Later, the district court requested the arrest of Buchenkov.

Shortly after his escape, Dmitry Buchenkov confirmed that he had applied for asylum in one of the EU countries, but did not disclose which one. Now it is confirmed that last Monday Lithuania granted it.

In November 2017, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that the Russian authorities violated Article 5, Part 3 and 4 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms with regard to Buchenkov, guaranteeing a trial within a period of time reasonable and without delay the court's consideration of the legality of his detention. He received 2,600 euros in compensation.

Anti-repression demonstration in Moscow

Avtonom | Wild instinct

On June 10 in Moscow on Sakharov Avenue was a demonstration "For a free Russia, without repression and arbitrariness", in which, according to the organizers, about 3 thousand people participated. The anarchists of Moscow came to the action with portraits of the defendants of the case "REDES", as well as with the Crimean anarchists Alexander Kolchenko and Yevgeny Karakashev and the anarchist of Nizhny Novgorod Ilya Romanov. The Belarusian guests brought a banner in support of the Belarusian political prisoner Dmitry Polienko.

When they were not far from the entrance of the event, the members of the anarchist bloc were ready to go to the meeting place, a group of activists of the Left Bloc and the Russian Socialist Movement were side by side. Singing the slogans of the freedom of the political prisoners, all arrived at the demonstration, where for a time they remained as a common "block".

Among the speakers at the rally was an anarchist and former political prisoner Alexei Sutuga, as well as Svetlana Pchelintseva, the mother of one of the defendants in the "REDES" case.

Speech by Alexei Sutugi

"They asked me to talk about the" Penza case ". Eight people from St. Petersburg and Penza read Kropotkin and play airsoft. They are in jail, they were tortured and accused of terrorism.

Why does the FSB act in this way? In all ages, the ability to possess weapons distinguishes freemen. And now there are moments like this, that even with the plastic models, the FSB sees a danger. The FSB fears that free people can defend themselves.

Nobody banned anarchism in Russia. Kropotkin books are sold in stores. In honor of Kropotkin, not far from here is called a subway station. In Russia there are anarchist sites, publications, cooperatives. The anarchists publish books, participate in social protests. They have many projects.

In Russia you can play airsoft. There are hundreds of airsoft, patriotic or apolitical clubs. But together, anarchism and airsoft is neither safe nor legal, as it turned out, this leads to prison.

People from different points of view came to this meeting. For example, nationalists and Stalinists, who are extremely unpleasant for us. But the political struggle in Russia can not be done by the hands of the police. If they can fabricate a case against the Nazis, they can also do so against the anarchists. If an anarchist can be imprisoned, the liberal is under threat.

Breaking the horns of a police state is a common goal for everyone. Without this, the development of Russia is not possible. "They do not give us the rights, they must be taken!" Kropotkin said. "
