Kazan, Russia: Arrested anarchists released court pending

 

In Thursday 3rd of October, local activists learned that four anarchist anti-fascists arrested in Kazan have been released court pending. According to one of the comrades, during the arrest everyone was heavily pressured to sign a confession during the period of arrest. Activists spent around half years in remand. Due to bad arrest conditions, some of them got health problems. 
 
It is expected that court will begin approximately in one month. Comrades in Kazan are still in need of financial help for lawyer costs and other costs of the criminal case.
