Tyumen Case. Six anarchists and anti-fascists detained in Tyumen, Yekaterinburg and Surgut

A new criminal case against anarchists in Russia became known in September. Six people were arrested in three cities in the Urals and Western Siberia on charges of organizing and participating in a «terrorist organization». All of the detainees hold anarchist and anti-fascist views. To date, the defendants have not been charged with any attacks against the regime or preparation for them, but under Russian law alone, the accused face between 5 and 10 years in prison for participation in a «terrorist organization», and between 15 and 20 years or life in prison for organising or leading a «terrorist organization». Supporting the prisoners requires considerable resources, and the support group requests financial support and spreading the information about the case.

Position on our solidarity work in Ukraine

A few days before the start of the war of aggression, we exchanged views with comrades from Ukraine, among others. What to do in case of war? For us it was clear that we would answer the call for help of our friends. We saw our possibilities of support very concretely in starting a fundraising campaign to support Operation Solidarity directly in Ukraine and people on the run outside. It was clear to us that there were activists who were already planning to stay and fight in Ukraine. With this, we clearly positioned ourselves and were also criticized for it. Therefore, in the following text we would shortly like to explain why we are doing what we are doing.

ABC Irkutsk (Russia) is renewing their work

Raised fist in form of a black cross, Russian Slogan in the middle, flowers in the background

Over the last couple of years, post-Soviet countries have been rocked by popular uprisings that have revived hope for political and social transformation — such as the popular uprising in Belarus in 2020 and in Kazakhstan in 2022. Putin’s regime has acted as a guarantor of dictatorships in both countries, and has strengthened the authoritarian regime in Russia itself over the past two decades. Since the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine, the Russian regime has conducted a particularly harsh crackdown on all those who disagree with militarism and war, imposing military censorship and tightening its grip on society’s throat in the country.

Spontaneous demo for solidarity with people in Ukraine

24.02. 18:00 @Jorge-Gomondai-Platz, Dresden

On Thursday, 24.02.22, at around 5am, Putin launched an imperialist war of aggression by invading Ukraine. Explosions were reported from the largest cities in the country. This makes it clear that it is not just about the Lukansk and Donetsk regions in eastern Ukraine.The war in Ukraine means flight, injury and death of many people. Cities, villages, livelihoods are being destroyed. Putin’s patriarchal, imperial fantasies are not worth the loss of even a single life!
