Nizhny Novgorod criminal case – Interview with Artem Bystrov, framed Anti-Fascist activist

On April 26, 2011, in the morning, six young people were arrested by Center “E” detectives (so-called “Anti-Extremist” cops). Five anti-fascists of Nizhny Novgorod were subject to home-searches. One of the flats was stormed by OMON (Special Police Squad), the windows were broken because nobody was at home.

Currently funds are needed for court costs of Nizhni Novgorod anti-fascists. If you are interested to help, you may contact Nizhni Novgorod ABC directly:
