You Can Kiss Your Tzar on his Ass!
By Edward Limonov Browse author
 
 

At 10:45 a.m. on August 2, about 30 members of National-Bolsheviks Party arrived to the main entrance of Russian Ministry of Health Care at Rakhmanovski pereulok in Moscow. Some of them were wearing a green overalls, pretending to be workers. They presented themselves as a team of sanitarians, arrived to do a disinfection of ministry premises. So they asked clerks to live for a while. Office workers have agreeably obeyed orders. National-Bolsheviks have occupied offices of Minister Zurabov, as well as a few other offices on the second and third floor. They opened the windows, fixed National-Bolsheviks flags out of the windows. Then they start to shout slogans and throw leaflets out of the windows.

They shouted, "Zurabov is enemy of the people!", "For our elders we'll cut your ears!", "Privileges to the people, Ministers to the guillotine!", "To people -- free medicine, ministers to the guillotine!"

Leaflets have such text: "Zurabov go out! So-called 'monetarization of privileges' is crime of government against people. Minister Zurabov -- one of the main organizers of that rip-off, is criminal. We are asking all honest citizens of Russia to crowd together against power of bureaucrats band, which terrorizing our country."

At 11:25 first militia car have arrived. From above, from the window of Zurabov's office clear and strong voice said: "Do we have there, ministry clerks? You can kiss your tzar on his ass!" The portrait of President Putin is falling from the window of Zurabov's office on sidewalk. Photographic picture of that falling portrait of Putin was printed on the pages of dozens of newspapers, as well as fixed by telecameras.

At 11:55 special forces of militia OMON have stormed their way into building. They are about one hundred men strong. They breaking the doors of offices occupied by National-Bolsheviks on the third floor. As to Zurabov's office, National-Bolsheviks have heavily barricaded it from inside, so special militia men are breaking the wall!

Only at 12:20 the first prisoners National-Bolsheviks have appeared out of the door of Ministry. Twenty-five minutes have been used by militia special forces for applying the "measures of physical pressure" on the bodies of National-Bolsheviks. In other words, they were savagely beaten up with clubs and boots of OMON.

Then, at Tverskaya militia station all the night long National-Bolsheviks were beaten by FSB men. On the contrary, simple militiamen were rather sympathetic towards National-Bolsheviks.

On August 3, towards the end of the day Tverskoi district court started to sentence National-Bolsheviks for administrative offenses. Maxim Gromov was arrested second time, as well as Oleg Bespalov, Sergei Ezhov, Kirill Klionov, Anatoli Korshunski, Grigori Tishin and Anatoli Globa-Mikhailenko. Most of them aging from 17 to 22 years old, with exception of Gromov who is 31. Normally, even Russian judicial system making one judgement. But, as I presume, after facing August 3rd newspapers, and his own portrait, falling from a window, tzar Putin got very angry. He probably cursed, screamed and throwed some objects at his subordinates. AS a result: the team of then investigators was created by insistence of General Prosecutor's Office. Criminal case N302345 was transferred from Tverskoi district to the Moscow prosecutor's office. AS a head of investigator's team was appointed Evgenii Alimov, investigator of specially important cases from Department of investigation of banditry and homicides of Moscow's prosecutors' office. They started to work.

And they really hard worked. In two weeks' time their investigation was over, because they sorted out from a case N302345 a separated cause of seven National-Bolsheviks with Maxim Gromov en head, I have already named them. Russian government have charged those seven with hooliganism (article 213, part 2, of Penal Code, up to seven years of prison), and with destruction of property (article 167, part 2, up to five years imprisonment) on the somme of 181,206 rubles. The armchair of Zurabov was evaluated at 30,000 rubles, chair for visitors -- 10,000 rubles, vase at 3,000 rubles, etc. But a value of portrait of Putin wasn't counted.
