Arrests after Khimki action

A few hours ago it was reported that police detained two anti-fascists - Alexei Gaskarova and Maxim Solopova - and charge them in organizing attacks on the administration of Khimki .

There is serious doubt that the police acted on the basis of any evidence. For example, today the police came back home to some other well-known activists who are generally not in the city for more than a week. There is a suspicion that the authorities simply detained activists known to them - Max and Alex have repeatedly advocated in the media on behalf of the anti-fascists.

The court will decide their further fate tomorrow, its time and place is unknown, police said that it would not be public (!).

Now the police call up a variety of civil activists and called them to "a conversation". Remember that all "conversations" are illegal, require a subpoena.
