On 17th April in Rostov-on-the-Don at approximately 7.00pm on one of
the central streets of city, there was an attack by an unknown group of
people (approximately 15-20 young people of 15-20 years) on three
members of the Federation of Anarcho-Communists (FAK) - two from Rostov
and one from Taganrog - as they were returning home from a meeting. The
attackers appeared completely by surprise and started to beat up the
three anarchist comrades. In spite of effective resistance, their
numerical superiority was too much. The most badly-beaten was comrade
"Polpot", who was attacked by 10 people who kicked him as he was on the
ground, smashing his face and splitting open his forehead. He also
received serious bruising to the head, with concussion and internal
lesions. The 2 other anarchists ended up with lighter injuries.
Subsequently one of the attackers was identified as a guy who was seen
lurking near the anti-fascist demonstration on 4th April. The attack
was possibly in retaliation for this demo by some fascist group.
Revenge is inevitable!
