(en) Russia, avtonom: 2 years to the Network case: pickets in Moscow [machine translation]

Date Thu, 24 Oct 2019 09:18:02 +0300

On Saturday, October 19, in Moscow, a picket line will be held near the FSB building, dedicated to the 2-year anniversary of the start of the notorious case of the so-called "Network". Beginning at 14 o'clock. At the same time, a picket line in support of the defendants in the Network case will be held in St. Petersburg on Sennaya Square. ---- Two years ago, on October 19, 2017, Ilya Shakursky and Vasily Kuksov were detained and brutally beaten in Penza. They were followed by the arrests of other defendants in the Network case: Dmitry Pchelintsev, Andrei Chernov, Arman Sagynbayev, Julia Boyarshinov, Viktor Filinkov, Igor Shishkin, Maxim Ivankin, Mikhail Kulkov. ---- Two years, as our comrades in St. Petersburg and Penza have been in captivity, many of them have been brutally tortured by the FSB during this time. Exhausting courts go to Penza every day; for an indefinite period, a break in court in St. Petersburg dragged on. Two years are not just words, it is day after day - suffering and struggle, humiliation and hope, despair and solidarity.

Going to the pickets, we want to recall what these two years were for the people involved in the Network business. We demand justice and freedom for them, as well as bringing to justice all those involved in torture!

Addresses by Vasily Kuksov and Ilya Shakursky to tomorrow's pickets in Moscow and St. Petersburg
Vasily Kuksov:

Hello! I would like to thank each kind and caring person personally for their support. But since I don't have such an opportunity, I say thanks to everyone who supports us. This is invaluable. After all, the essence of support and publicity is not only whether it will somehow affect the time that we spend in captivity, but more about what internal strength and incredible energy gives us every message about ongoing promotions, every letter or postcard that got into our hands from the "other side of the grid". Our business, alas, is not an isolated case, many people in prisons are also unfair. How many were there, are there and will be yet? I really hope and believe that no one will be forgotten. So we all have something to fight for together and everything will surely work out and better times will come! Take care of yourself and each other, be honest and courageous. Though,
I wish you all a good mood, positive thoughts in spite of the environment, and great achievements!


Ilya Shakursky:

I try not to think about wasted time, torment and bullying, injustice and anger, lies and hypocrisy that have surrounded me for the past 2 years. After all, if you keep in yourself a constant awareness of such circumstances, then you can go crazy. Instead, I try to look only tomorrow and think about why this is all happening. To deprive a given situation of meaning is to perish.
In one of the postcards I received recently, the following words were written: "People from different countries are united in your support. This will certainly bear fruit. We believe in you, and you believe in us. "
I want you to know that I believe in you, and this faith gives me strength every minute. I believe that solidarity unites many, even those who did not want to unite. I believe that we will all be able to achieve not only the freedom of political prisoners, but also other equally important goals. I believe that we are all capable of changing the world, making it better and kinder.
The suffering of our loved ones, the pain we felt, the fear that enveloped us for 2 years of brazenly stolen youth. Let all this be the price we paid for the opportunity to inspire you, for trying to eliminate injustice in the name of common sense and love.
Let the punishers see the consequences of their criminal actions and regret it. Let them see that their methods no longer work, that it was they who became the pretext for creating what they wanted to ban, intimidate, trample and imprison.
That which does not kill us makes us stronger!
Please do not take this appeal as an abstract wish, filled with big words and hopes of the political prison.
I try my best to penetrate the depths of your hearts with the help of text, so that everyone can believe in themselves, believe in us all.
We will win! Good will win!
