(en) avtonom: Anarchists on the march of Belarusians in Kiev: declared themselves and fought off the Nazis by Pramen Group [Traduction automatique]

Date Sun, 15 Aug 2021 15:22:40 +0300

On August 8, a rally was held in Kiev in honor of the anniversary of the nationwide protest of Belarusians against the dictatorship of Lukashenka. Both people from the Belarusian diaspora and local solidarities took part. ---- At first, about a hundred people gathered at the Belarusian embassy in Kiev. Anarchists immediately added bright colors to the event. We came with a banner "Belarus in shackles. We have the key! ", And our slogans" Belarus will be free! " and "Cars in the paddy wagon!" eagerly picked up by the protesters. By the beginning of the march from the embassy to the Independence Square, about three hundred people had already gathered, and the march through the central streets of the Ukrainian capital was truly an inspiring and large-scale action. The unexpected signals of cars in support of the march were especially pleasing.

But all this event was overshadowed by the Nazis, namely the people of Sergei Korotkikh. Already near the embassy, they demanded to remove the symbols, during the march there were tense conversations. On the way to the Maidan, a group of Nazis awaited us, apparently informed of our presence. Soon, the ultra-right attacked and tried to grab the banner. Pepper gas was used on both sides and the Korotkikhs' titushki recoiled.

The participants of the march were taken aback by surprise, but soon several people ran up to help us. A skirmish began with the police. Then, taking advantage of the turmoil and their numerical advantage, the opponents snatched the banner. Later, the Nazis published a photo where the whole group trampled on the word "Belarus ..."

When our comrades got into a taxi, they were poured with pepper spray through the car windows. After they were followed by an SUV, and when they got out of the taxi, they were attacked again.

The organizer of the attack was Sergei Korotkikh's bodyguard, Taras Stasivsky.

Among the attackers, there was also a member of the National Corps Yevgeny Vryadnik, he is the informal leader of the Avangard Culturna Spilka organization. After getting out of the taxi, the guys were attacked by people with the symbols "Maybutnego Base" (former C14).

The Nazis strongly disliked the presence of the pramen.io link, since investigations on Sergei Korotkikh and the Belarusian House in Ukraine (BDU) were published on the Promnya channels. Korotkikh turned the BDU into an instrument of ultra-right politics and his own mafia affairs. We regard the attack as revenge for the publication. Unfortunately, what happened was a natural result of the infiltration of neo-Nazis among Belarusian activists in Kiev.

Let's separately note the behavior of the police. Immediately after the start of the skirmish, several policemen flew up to us with a furious scream, demanding "not to provoke." This has become a common practice in Ukraine: after an attack by the Nazis, policemen immediately run up to besiege those who were attacked. In order, God forbid, not to provoke the ultra-right, who are apparently recognized as an invincible force with the right to violence. It is noteworthy that the police do not suspect that with such behavior they look extremely sorry, humiliating themselves.

Let's wrap up on a positive note. Anarchists today in Kiev announced their agenda. And our enemies proved to be just stupid thugs. We would like to say a special thank you to all the participants of the march who supported us and helped us at a difficult moment. What you are alone allows us to say:

Faithful, we can, the first men!
