Misha was one of the first RASH-skinheads in Moscow.
He himself said that he was the second after Krot (obviously, some people were there before, but none of those who followed met them). He was on the streets in the darkest hours in the late 1990's - early 2000's, when in Moscow you could count the fighters with one hand He as also a member of "Rainbow Keepers" and participated in the protest camps (for example, in Sasovo 2008. Already in the early 2000's he left the skinhead subculture, but has always supported the anti-fascist and anarchist movement.
We mourn and remember our comrade.
