I acknowledge myself as a man of 61 years, preparing to publish in March my 37th book. I also acknowledge myself as a man, living with 21 years old girl, possessing a white bull terrier, white rat and a hamster. I also acknowledge myself as a leader of National-Bolsheviks Party, which I have founded ten years ago. And that is exactly in that last capacity as a political leader that I am hated by authority of my beloved country of Russia. As it is not enough I became few months ago the Chairman of movement "Russia without Putin."
Every day, or almost every day my assistant Michael brings me reports of electronical medias as well as press-clips about deeds of National-Bolsheviks Party. Headlines say for example on March 12: "newsru.com, "Natsbols have seized a Putin's headquarters at Saint Petersburg and have handcuffed themselves to Latvian embassy in Moscow." News of party activities are coming from numerous provincial cities: in Irkutsk, Putin's reception office was attacked. In Chelyabinsk meeting NBP in alliance with communists under the slogan "Russia Without Putin" have taken place. In Barnaul, meeting NBP, but before unknown persons have painted in black the FSB building. Orsk, Novosibirsk, Rostov-sur-Don, Ryazan, Kaluga, Nizhni Novgorod, Krasnoyarsk, Magnitogorsk, Kharkov, Kishenev -- those cities where National-Bolsheviks have staged some actions in the beginning of March.
What I feel about it? I feel great. Because that movement what I have started about ten years ago with a few friends have trespassed all borders, it is now a young people's movement. My personal destiny could be whatever destiny, but I gave an ideology of protest for actual generation of Russian youth, and I hope for a next few generations. When in prison I wrote a book, what I always wanted to write: "The Other Russia." It is sold out. "The Other Russia" is a howl for creation of a new nation, a new state, of a free country.
Russian special services are listening to my telephones, they have some listening devices in my apartment. As they did it in year 2000 [34 audio cassettes were presented by FSB at my trial in Saratov]. They listen to my whispers to my girl. They listen to the barkings of our dog [he's very serious, his barkings are few during the day]. They want badly to isolate me. On March 2, Minister of the Interior Affairs of Russia Rashid Nurgaliev said [when on oin conference of Ministry of Internal Affairs and FSB] that "Russia today is menaced not by the teenagers usual criminality, but by the extremists movements among youths." Nurgaliev also said that "in the first place we should neutralize the leaders of these groups."
So they do. When I arrived on February 24, about midnight time at Saint Petersburg by train, FSB men been writing for me at train station. They come to meet me on platform, to the entrance form my compartment. Then, when on February 29 I was back to Moscow seven plainclothes men have met me at entrance of my compartment. To easy their own task they asked everybody in compartment to present their passports. I have presented. They just control movements.
By coincidence just next day after the high and honorable conference of militia and FSB generals took place, group of National-Bolsheviks have staged an action...about 30 of them have attacked and "seized" an office of Party "Edinaya Rossiya" on Pereyaslavski pereulok. Part of participants have penetrated third floor of building, have opened the windows, have handcuffed themselves to pipes of heating, the others have staged a meeting downstairs. More than 49 news agencies have reported about event.
The generals were very angry. On March 5, about 60 men, armed and equipped and well fed, have arrived at 10.15 in the morning to the bunker of National-Bolsheviks Party at Frunzenskaya 7. Forces of special use of Ministry of Interior have stormed in our premises just behind of "court's executor" (sudebni isponitel). That was 17 National-Bolsheviks in bunker. They haven't resisted because on February 5, Moscow's Arbitration Court have made decision to evict us from our premises. But despite of absence of resistance Special Forces (each soldier for about two meters tall) have putted everybody on the floor. Seven of our comrades were beaten up. Then, all of them were transferred to a malice station of Khamovniki, where they were interrogated by the malice and FSB men. Among the FSB men two were familiar to National-Bolsheviks, Colonel "Frolov" -- a false name, as we found out, and small Chechen-looking man, both have participated in kidnapping and beating up Dmitri Bakhur -- one of our activists in January.
