Several people were detained in St. Petersburg for a rally in support of Miftakhov and last year’s protests (photo)


The action in support of MSU graduate student Azat Miftakhov took place this afternoon.

Spring movement activists Elena Skvortsova and Yekaterina Bushkova installed window frames next to the United Russia office on Konnogvardeisky Boulevard.

The police detained the girls and two other activists – Dmitry Skurikhin for a protest in February last year, and Alexandra Shashok for a picket in support of the Khabarovsk protests in October. The checker is still in the police department.

In addition, the policeman began to check the documents of the journalists at the scene of the action and interrogate them.

“This police officer (there is a video on the SOTA channel) has the song Was wollen wir trinken on the ringtone, which is popular among the ultra-right (according to one version, it is considered the anthem of the Luftwaffe) … An ultra-right policeman detains girls for an action in support of the anti-fascist Azat Miftakhov … and Reacts very violently to the Jewish surname Frenkel (photographer David Frenkel worked there), ”deputy Boris Vishnevsky said on his VKontakte page.

Recall that Miftakhov was arrested in February 2019 in the case of an attack on the office of United Russia. The police consider him a member of the anarchist movement People’s Self-Defense. After the arrest, traces of torture were found on Miftakhov’s body. The prosecution demands to sentence Miftakhov to six years in prison.
