On Sunday, the 28th of April 2013, a well-known Russian anti-fascist, Alexey Gaskarov, was arrested in Moscow. He is a member of the Coordination Council of Russian opposition. The investigation committee of the Russian Federation has accused him of having pacticipated in riots and violence against representative of authorities on the 6th of May 2012, when OMON (Russian riot police) attacked a peaceful demonstration.
The 6th of May was one day prior to Putin’s inauguration, and a mass demonstration had been called by the opposition. The winter and spring of 2011-2012 saw the biggest wave of political demonstrations in Russia in almost 20 years, as tens of thousands of people went out on the streets to protest election fraud. The 6th of May was also the first time authorities moved to crush these protests. According to the opposition more than 600 people were arrested, and as of now 28 people have been charged, who have been remanded, been put under house arrest or have been forced to emigrate. (more…)

We have received message from our comrades: “We have burned a big Ford nearby VDNKH subway station about two weeks ago. The car had a pass of Police ministry behind a windshield and it looks like a typical car granted for official of medium/high level. We proclaim solidarity with all our comrades prosecuted. And you, police pigs, should know that any of your aggression etc. against freedom fighters won’t be unrequited.”

In the night February 19/20 we attacked local police station in the village Povedniki (Moscow region). It was settled in non-residential building – so we felt free to act strongly. It is likely, that a good portion of incendiary has completely destroyed the contents of this enemy’s nest (we had no possibility to watch fire up to end).
Dear comrades! We see authorities unqualified, organized badly and act blindly. So it is time to concentrate on radical struggle and then you can damage the system stronger and go free longer. Join us!
Victory will be ours!

Three wooden crosses were cut in Domodedovo area of Moscow during the nights of 25/12/12, 07/01/13 and 20/01/13. Situated near elite cottages, on the territory of a hunting resort, and near sand borrow works these symbols of religios dogmatism were standing there as a blessing upon thieves, murderers and rapists. Moreover, they are used as way stones marking the direction of further domestication and development projects. This is something we stand in opposition to.
Against clerical intrusion into nature!
Against any religion
Salute to our brother Walter Bond. It was good to hear of his recent decision about Islam. No mosques in our parts, so our iconoclast activity is focused on crazy orthodox fundamentalists.
Salute to our anti-religious comrades from Australia and UK!
Eat and Billy, we welcome you back!

She expressed special interest in explosives and gas bombs. Her target was gathering information on group responsible for bombing highway police post in summer 2011 in Moscow. (more…)

Radical struggle in Russia through past 2 months
Social tension in Russia seems to be descending, but nevertheless the level of people’s resistance including direct action and sabotage remains comparatively high.
Many people wait for a new wave of struggle in late spring or summer. Anarchists try to participate appreciably in this movement, but there is obvious necessity to act more organized and strongly to take a chance of spreading anarchist ideal and practice.
30.01.2012 – In Kharkov, Ukraine, Lexus which belonged to local judge was burned down by unknown people.
31.01.2012 – Media has reported, there were 2 attempts of arson of offices of the ruling party “United Russia” during the night in two neighboring districts of Moscow – Bibirevo and Losinoostrovskiy. Unfortunately no serious damage was done. This attack was held by anonymous group.
02 – 03.02.2012 – In the night anonymous guerilla group has thrown some Molotov cocktails into a smashed window of “United Russia” party office in Fryazino-town in Moscow region. Furniture and office equipment were damaged by fire.
21.02.2012 – In Novosibirsk-city anonymous people have thrown a bottle with incendiary mixture to the drawing room of now “elected” Russian president and a chief of United Russia party.
23.02.2012 – In Ufa a DIY-bomb exploded nearby communal ministry of Bashkortostan Republic. This action was held by autonomous guerilla group.
24.02.2012 – The group of radical environmentalists “Green Resistance” has burned down a bulldozer involved in deforestation in Podolsk district of Moscow region. In their communiqué comrades call everybody who cares about nature to join their activity of pro-nature direct action and sabotage. Here is video from their action: Click to download in FLV format (2.21MB)
26.02.2012 – In Moscow an anarchist guerilla group burned a luxury car Mercedes G-class with prosecutor’s pass-paper beneath a windshield. Later, when media intervened, it became clear that car was property of the shopping center owner. Nevetheless comrade’s action undoubtedly has reached its target.
02.03.2012 – Two days to presidential elections – 3 anarchist guerilla groups from Moscow, Saint-Petersburg and Ufa have organized coordinated action in three cities at the same night. In SPb there was attacked a drawing room of one of the “United Russia” deputies, in Moscow – one of the local offices of ruling party. Guerilla group “Spravedlivost” from Ufa attacked administration building of Oktyabrskiy district of Ufa city.
Our actions are, above all, the call addressed to all the people who thoughtful and hopeful in positive changes – don’t rely on elections; it means nothing for long-long time. It is time to go out and act strongly. Don’t pay attention to cries of self-appointed “leaders” of the movement about moderation and peaceful protest. If you – if all of us – wish to change really, we have to control urban space by all means necessary. So at the 5th of March – don’t wait for orders from the “chiefs, but self-organize and operate! Breach police lines, occupy squares, and capture administrative buildings! You have to challenge the system and risk, if you want win. There is no other way – by words and meetings, mass but peaceful, there is no chance to change anything.
Our choice is – revolution!

05.03.2012 – In anti-Putin demonstration in Saint-Petersburg police was attacked from crowd by some bottles of incendiary mixture. For Russia it is unprecedented case. One of the riot police buses took fire. Police couldn’t catch guerillas.
08.03.2012 – In Pervouralsk-town Mercedes S-350, which belonged to local depute and capitalist Vladislav Sten’ka, who involved in crime when he had beaten his employees – was burned.

2 cell phone towers torched south of Moscow (Rostov-na-Donu direction). The cottage settlement we chose to disable is a popular site among hunters. And not only that. Local residents decided to add to the abuse of wild life and started two commercial fishing resorts. They breed fish to be hunted by tourists.
So in a festive winter spirit (New Year/Xmas and St. Valentine’s Day) we decided to send them a message of love and harmony: 1 tower was left completely burned out, another one – severely damaged.
We used incendiaries with 1.5 liters of gasoline/kerosine each.
Words of solidarity and support to Marco Camenish, members of Indonesian FAI (both in prison and on the run), and Silvia, Costa and Billy.

Falsified results of parliamentary elections seem to be a serious occasion for many thousands of malcontent people to express their disagreement to authority during really mass demonstrations over Russia. At the same time number of direct actions related with sabotage of state institutions also grows by leaps and bounds…
10 – 13.12.2011 – In the urban districts of Moscow: Donskoy and Novogireevo windows were smashed in the offices of ruling United Russia party. Actions were held by anonymous people.
15.12.2011 – In Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk town unknown freedom fighters have attacked local office of United Russia by fire. (more…)

15 December 2011
On December the 15th a group of anonymous punks from Moscow decided to act upon receiving news of brutal state repression of Indonesian punk-scene. We consider ourselves anarcho-punks and these news offended us in the deepest sense. We wont tolerate any religion to hold sway over living being’s freedom, especially over our subculture. Thus on the same evening we gathered to express our rage. We chose Indonesian embassy as our target. For us solidarity starts on subcultural level. We feel that modern Russian anarchists pay too little attention to subcultures of resistance. We wish the news of our action to reach Indonesian comrades. We hope they will have their spirits soar after hearing that in such far-away country there are folks who feel solidarity with their struggle.
Punk is not a crime. Religion is fascism. Fight for your looks.
We didn’t want to make video, but it was agreed upon after a tedious discussion that even the most pacifist action should have video documentation. So here it goes:

Here is a brief report on radical acts of social confrontation in Russia since 9th November and until today. Nowadays we are faced with the pre-revolutionary situation of great people’s disturbance all over the country after parliamentary elections, where United Russia, the party of the ruling bunch of corrupted bureaucrats and oligarchs, took its “victory” due to massive falsification. We all hope here, that this not only beginning of the end of this semi-authoritarian regime, but also the dawn of people’s liberation – libertarian revolutionary struggle. (more…)

On 30/11/2011 we set out to spike forest roads in a hunting resort of Naro-fominsk district (Moscow region).
We can’t find words to describe our happiness at discovering a forest service vehicle parked on a remote trail. It was a mystery for us if they were there on an ambush (they were sort of hard to spot initially), or simply taking a rest away from their bosses (as Russian enforcement agents are prone to do). So we spiked about 2 kms of the road in both directions from the vehicle. We wish them a cold and lonely night in the dark forest.
We felt emotions akin to those every anarchist with molotov in a back pack must have felt when she suddenly came upon an empty police car.
Forest service officers do not protect forests or wildlife, they are there to make it possible for hunters kill animals (for a bribe or due to dubious legislation), they rob tourists during tourist seasons, they turn a blind eye towards tree-cutters.
We salute young men and women from ALF-Moscow for their courageous acts. The struggle continues until total liberation!

Today [Wednesday 16 2011], two years have passed since our comrade Ivan ‘Vanya’ Khutorskoy was murdered in Moscow. On occasion, we publish an article which was written for Avtonom journal in Russian, and translated for ‘Abolishing the Borders from Below’ in English.
“You are made of some different fabric. You are way more prepared than me for this kind of shit. I figured it out, when you told me by telephone, that Vanya is not anymore” – a young comrade put it like this once, in the frame of one discussion. We were standing on the platform of a metro, wagons of steel were scurrying on metallic rails. Their metallic clamps were squeezing my insides. Yes, my young friend, I am definitely ready for this shit.
Upon the death of Vanya, in spirit I was already in my 4th decade, although my physical age will correspond to that much later. My twenties I had spent in a skinhead-casual frenzy, spiced with an anarcho-communist baggage of ideas. For me, all those years passed side by side with two guys. One of them left all of that behind a long time ago, now he is more into stuff like wifes/mistresses/kids/cars. Another one was Vanya. If I will be alive, healthy, and out of jail, my fourth decade will not be boring either, but it will not be the same. (more…)

08.10.2011 – anarchist guerilla squad has attacked the parking of the police cars in the town of Troitsk (Moscow region). Two cars were destroyed. Here’s a fragment from our communiqué:
“Police station of Troitsk-town… sturdy police building, which looks like stronghold, if you observe it from the Kaluzhskoe highway. Entrance is blocked by antitank hedgehog; high iron wall is ending by barbwire… But as it often happens with state institutions, solid and threatening façade hides rotten and useless content. Taking in the rear of armed police criminals, we have found a parking of patrol police cars without any security. These place is used by the brave Guardians of the Law just for drinking alcohol, as we have seen by our own eyes. As drunken pigs went home – we have attacked a parking [lot] and seriously injured by fire at least two police cars”.
Also this night at least 9 luxury cars were burnt in Moscow, but none has taken responsibility for these acts.
15.10.2011 – in Volsk-town (Saratov region) two cars, which belong to police officer and his wife, were set on fire and destroyed.
18.10.2011 – in Khimki-town (Moscow region) a police car was blown up. Police lie about a “technical disease”. None has taken a responsibility for this action.
22.10.2011 – in the town of Kamensk-na-Obi (Altai territory) a cottage of the depute and ex-mayor of the town, Valeriy Gorozhankin, was set on fire by unknown people.
All imprisoned people are released
Few days ago, all people arrested under suspicion of participating in road police blast were released from detention without any charges. Now it is clear that the police have shown their incompetence once again.

Capital of Russia experienced 11 luxury car arsons as well as attack on police
department parking lot that saw 2 police cruisers torched.
While no concrete anarchist group took responsibility for recent string of arsons, police and media have already blamed them on anarchists, as has frequently (and sometimes unjustly) been the case in Russia.
Wide acceptance and mimicry of anarchist direct action tactics among the populace has pushed government towards repressions against the movement and even some “exemplary arrests”.
Aside from recent arrests of 4 suspected anarchists and an ABC activist, corporate media report two men (who have both served sentences in Russian prisons) captured during one of the arson attempts, although their part is dubious at best: Russian police have a long record of forcing former criminal prisoners to cooperate in covering-up of unsolved crimes, when people already convicted of a crime are “persuaded” to plead guilty in even more crimes.

On the 28th and 29th of September, 2011, four persons (two young men and two young women) were detained in Moscow, suspected of crimes under statute 213 part 2 (“hooliganism”) and statute 167 part 2 (“property destruction with arson”) of Russian criminal codex. They are suspected of having committed a bomb attack against traffic police station in 22th kilometre of Moscow ringroad 7th of June 2011, and arson against an excavator in construction site of Volokamski motorway 5th of June 2011. Police did not have any proof about participation of the arrested in these actions, and on the 3th of October all of them were released. Goal of the arrests was solely to pressure anarchists to give testimony with means of psychological and physical torture.
Arrests, searches and interrogations were done as a common operation of UGRO (Criminal Investigation Department), FSB (ex-KGB / intelligence service) and Center E (Center for Counteraction Against Extremism). Also fifth search was committed, at home of anarchist K – his home was searched already second time this year Apparently K was not arrested as he managed to contact his lawyer, who was immediately available for interrogations.
During arrests, mobile phones, computers (including those of relatives), digital medium, crossbow, kitchen knives, gasoline container (belonging to father of one of the arrested) were confiscated. Literature and leaflets were confiscated from K. Police claimed in their website, that a molotov cocktail was confiscated as well, but this was misinformation.
A was arrested 28th of September, late in the evening. As he was returning home, three undercover officers who had been hiding in car disguised as paramedics, attacked him. He was taken to a forest by masked officers, who held him at a gunpoint and demanded him to give testimony against himself, and later on he was beaten up. Papers on his arrest were filled only the next day, and officially he was arrested only 29th of September.
29th of September around 9:30 AM, B was arrested. Three undercover cops, who were also hiding in a car disguised as paramedics, jumped her from behind, without presenting any documents. B managed to wound two of them with a knife, but as wounds of the officers were not serious and legality of the arrest method was dubious at least, no charges were pressed against her. B turned 18 years old only few days before the arrests, and police was not hiding the fact that they consciously decided to move forward with the arrests only when B was not underage anymore.
29th of September around 8 PM C was arrested at his home. FSB broke in to his house with help of local police. After arrest, C was also beaten up by the police. Conditions of the arrest of the fourth person are unknown.
According to laws of the Russian federation, maximum period of arrest without a court decision is 48 hours. However, police bypassed these laws illegally by arresting suspected immediately after 48 hours by pressing other charges against them. Even original arrests were filled with false dates. Thus B spent in arrest all together 103 hours, without any court decisions.
Right now, arrested are suspected of two criminal cases, but no charges have been pressed against them. Almost all of them have now lawyers, but funds are much needed for legal costs.
If you want to donate for the lawyer costs, please visit
Besides interrogations on arson and bomb attack, police has launched a wide effort to track down anarchist infrastructure and circle of friends of the arrested. As nobody was officially charged, it is much possible that new arrestes and searches will follow.

Since yesterday evening there are spreading news about so-called capture of people suspected in maintaining blast of road police station on 7th June 2011.
This news come from the anti-extremist police department and media… They say that 4 people are arrested, and one young girl had resisted during her arrest and injured cop with her knife. Firstly we are proud to declare strictly that blast of road police was taken by our insurgent group — BlackBlocg.Info collective. As a evidence of this fact we was first who had spread a communique and video from the action. Everyone of us is out of prison now, we are all free and cheerful to continue revolutionary struggle. Police lies as usual — they have arrested people who had no relations with our group. Still nobody in Anarchist movement knows names of arrested, but we hope to learn it soon, and then International solidarity and help will be needed strongly… Let honour and bravehood be with our imprisoned comrades. Together we will win! Freedom, Equality, Solidarity!

Dear Comrades! Since our latest report in English had been published, there have been some occasions of social war moved by anarchists and “ordinary people”.
29.08.2011 – In St. Petersburg R.A.T.S. (Red and Anarchist Terror Section) burned road roller and bulldozer on the construction site of business-center of Gazprom – the most horrible Russian state-capitalist monster, trading oil and gas.
The same day in Moscow DIY-bomb was thrown into the police station of one of the Moscow outskirt municipality – Eastern Degunino. Two police cars, wall and windows of a building was damaged by explosion. This was the second anonymous bomb-attack on Moscow police in last days of August (the first one two days before). No group has claimed responsibility.
31.08.2011 – In Petersburg-city R.A.T.S. strikes again – police car burned and communiqué was spread: “everyone knows what hatred to police means – nowadays our country is separated on two unequal groups – those who governs and those who has to obey due to the fear of repressions (…) our action is a gift to the inauguration of a new police governor of St. Petersburg – Poltavchenko.”
03.09.2011 – Nearby city of Samara, placed in Volga-river, in the night anonymous pirate group attacked from the boat expensive yachts by Molotov cocktails.
09.09.2011 – In Moscow region administration house of Povarovo village was attacked by Molotov cocktails. No group has claimed responsibility.

19.09.2011 – In Melitopol, Ukraine – public prosecutor’s office was arsoned. General door damaged…
Let the struggle spread and become deeper! Vivat Anarhia!

Revolutionary greetings to all the comrades in Russia. 325 receives and transmits this statement and two action reports:
Good day. We would like to shed some light on several issues regarding the revolutionary anarchist activity of “Black Bloc” collectives in Russia. We feel it must be done because of the recent rise in interest from right-wing radicals.
We decided to publish this statement after one of the right-wing murderer scum (N. Tikhonov, at the moment he serves life sentence for murder of our two anarchists comrades – Stanislav Markelov and Anastasia Baburova – trans.) talked in elated tones, expressed support and good will towards our groups and actions (you can enjoy his delirious ideas here http://tihonov-hasis.livejournal.com/5256.html) Since we are anonymous and there’s little information about us and our ideals, we would like to, once again, talk about who we are and where do we stand.
First things first: what we do. We try to maintain clandestine character of our activity, so we’ve been acting successfully for several years in this country already. We lost count to the total number of our subversive actions. Our primary targets are enforcement agencies, large business structures and corporations, as well as members of bourgeoisie. We don’t really care, whose luxury car is burning: Chinese, Tadzhik or Russian. We base our actions on class hatred. However, we do try hard to avoid injuring innocent people in any way. We still maintain zero-level of “collateral damage” and life being victims during our bombings or arsons. However, during our actions we do wear arms to avoid a quick and easy detention in case we’ll be facing off with cops in the streets during one of the attacks.
We would like to once again stress that we don’t care about sexual orientation of our comrades. We respect everyone, it doesn’t matter for us, who our comrade is in love with and with whom (s)he will be build the new world we know is possible. And while “brave warriors of white race” are hitting their keyboards hard, queers and feminists are joining heterosexuals in molotov attacks on the System. Our queer sisters and brothers are fully capable to protect themselves.
Lots of ordinary people have already expressed their support to our project. Unfortunately, so did nationalists. Some of the nazi scum are publicly expressing their excitement and good will, some mumble that “right radicals can’t boast such kind of activity”, others try to remind that we are, first and foremost, anarchists. And that we are their enemies.
Exactly. It’s worth to repeat this once again. We are anarchists. We are not supportive of any kind of oppression. And our hands smell of gasoline, yes. But of blood as well. We do not shrink back from attacking nazis in subway and the streets. Using knives, handguns and barehanded. In this regard we are always supportive of antifascist groups, either anarchists or S.H.A.R.P. We’ve never cooperated with the State and this won’t change in the future. We are not getting orders from anyone. So stop all this banter about us being Z.O.G. conspiracy or undercover cops or anything. Everything that the new generation of right-wing degenerates have achieved is mimicking of Antifa counter-culture. From dress-code to tactics. We do hope that you’ll grow up, start using your own brain and won’t become 30-year old sieg-heil clowns.
Until then, see you in the streets…
Autonomous group FIRST SQUAD, FAI/IRF

August 21, 2011 at 3 am an individual fighter of resistance burned down a local police station №35 placed on Lenskaya street, 28, Moscow. Action was successful and struggle against «criminals with shoulder straps» will be continued. Greetings to all today and future guerrillas! Don’t be afraid to act alone, but be careful! No pasaran!
August 23, 2011, in the night. In a town of Khimki nearby Moscow, a group of anarchist guerrillas have burned a police car on the parking of the road police station. Khimki is a place of a hard social conflict because of the project of building a paid road through the Khimki forest. During the protests of locals and ecologists, a horrible police brutality has been shown. So we send our message to bloody police scum! It is time to continue the struggle to defend nature and justice and to abolish state and capitalism!

Revolutionary greetings and solidarity from Moscow!
Earth Liberation Front Russia – Informal Anarchist Federation / International Network claim series of attacks in Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & Long-term Anarchist Prisoners (Russia)
Monday, June 13th, 2011
325 received the following communique from Earth Liberation Front Russia – Informal Anarchist Federation / International Network of Action & Solidarity, about a series of attacks in conjunction with the 11th June International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and Long-term Anarchist Prisoners. Strength and force to all those imprisoned for their ideas, words and actions of resistance – We will never forget our prisoners of war. For a global insurrectional network based on revolutionary solidarity, direct action and subversion:
Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid – ELF actions in Moscow region of Russia
“For me solidarity is a constant proposal to struggle, is the continuation and the development of the revolutionary action for which the comrade was captured” - Gerasimos Tsakalos, Conspiracy of Cells of Fire
01.06 we torched electrical measuring and control devices in 2 underground service booths of a water communication system that brings hot water to a military intelligence site in Butovskiy forest. To add to the fact that this infrastructure serves military personnel, more than 800 trees were cut during earthworks for this water supply line to even appear in the forest. To hamper service brigades further, we also spiked the road they use for maintaining the system.
05.06 we torched an excavator at a highway construction site west of Moscow (Volokolamsk direction).
06.06 and 10.06 we expropriated some construction equipment and destroyed geologists’ measurement posts in the glades of Butovskiy forest.
11.06 we broke into yet another underground service booth and put to fire all the digital and analog devices and tools inside.
We dedicate these attacks to Marie Mason and Eric McDavid. We don’t have the honour of personal acquaintance with them, but their dedication to protecting our Planet and conscious choices they’ve made not only to act, but also to stand their ground in the wake of state repressions, inspire us and help us to continue on our path.
For Earth Liberation! For Human Liberation!

Year and two days ago, human rights lawyer Stanislav Markelov and anarchist journalist of Novaya Gazeta, Anastasia Baburova were shot in cold blood in center of Moscow.
The anniversary two days ago, 19th of January, became biggest manifestation of solidarity with Russian anti-fascists ever – actions were organised in more than 30 cities in Russia and around the world. (more…)
