The European parliament and political prisoners in Königsberg.


The fraction of European parliament, the Green Party and European Free Alliance published a map of a World Cup and the list of 108 political prisoners ( there are much more) in Russia. Just click the switch on the map from "fair play" to "foul" ( link below). Five of the political prisoners are from Königsberg. Now the West can not say, that they did not know about violation of Human Rights in Königsberg while the West played games with a criminal regime of Putin. The names of the five prisoners are: Mamayev Alexander (priest), Orshulevich Alexander, Rudnikov Igor ( journalist), Sentsov Nikolai and Ivanov Igor.

The text of a petition to FIFA.
While Russian stadiums will be filled with football fans, more than 150 political prisoners fill prisons all over Russia. FIFA cannot stay silent. We urge the FIFA leadership to engage personally with President Putin and Russian officials to raise this topic and make sure that the fate of these prisoners is not ignored or forgotten.
Football is about playing fair. There is no greater way to play fair than by respecting human rights. Yet, choosing Russia and Qatar as championship hosts - countries who don’t play fair - shows that FIFA is disregarding human rights and even its own internal rules.
FIFA pledges in its own Human Rights Policy to “go beyond its responsibility to respect human rights”. One point of this policy states that “where the freedoms of human rights defenders and media representatives are at risk, FIFA will take adequate measures for their protection, including by using its leverage with the relevant authorities”.
The human rights situation in Russia, this year´s host country of the FIFA World Cup, is extremely critical:
While Russian stadiums will be filled with football fans, more than 150 political prisoners fill prisons all over Russia; among them well-known Memorial human rights defender Oyub Titiev, Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov (who is on hunger strike) and more than 60 Ukrainians, including Crimean Tatars, illegally detained on unsubstantiated and politically motivated charges. FIFA cannot stay silent.
Political opposition and critical media and journalists are in constant danger in Russia. The arrests and crack down on peaceful protesters, the prosecution of ordinary people for their comments on social media, the persecution and even pogroms against LGBT people, show that Russian citizens’ fundamental rights like freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of assembly are under daily assault. While newspapers will feature the joy of the matches, critical journalism will be suppressed. There is no real media freedom in Russia. This is neither fair play nor democratic. FIFA needs to call it out.
FIFA’s presence must not deflect attention from scandalous human rights violations in Russia, and the FIFA World Cup should not be used by the Kremlin and President Putin to whitewash the Russian regime's devastating human rights record.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) refused an asylum to the leader of Baltic Republican Party Rustam Vasilev. The US authorities are planning to deport Mr. Vasilev to Russia and started the removal procedures. There is a last chance for Mr. Vasilev to stay safe in USA - the Immigration Court. He is standing before US Immigration Judge, that will decide his fate. Mr. Vasilev needs an Immigration attorney who can represent him in Court. He is still looking for a pro bono Immigration attorney. First master hearing will be held on 12 July.
Please, help to Mr.Vasilev and donate money to cover legal cost. Press the "Donate" button above and donate whatever you can. God bless you.

Prisoned journalists in Königsberg

The Kremlin regime is killing independent journalists in Königsberg.
There were 3 more or less independent newspapers in Königsberg region - "39 region", "Novie Kolesa" and "Dvornik". They were publishing sometimes an opposition views. They never published me though ( as my views about the region are "radical"), except once when "Dvornik" published my letter for a facilitation of visa regime for our region, that gathered 10.000 signatures of locals. I do know personally the owners and journalists. Now, two of the owners are in prison.

Mr. Igor Rudnikov - the owner of "Novie Kolesa" newspaper and local MP. He always published an articles about the history of East Prussia in his newspaper. He survived an assassination attempt by a "former" police officer. He recognized as a political prisoner by "Memorial" ( Russian Human Rights organization). He is charged with extortion. The Kremlin transfered him to Lefortovo prison ( Moscow). He is facing up to 15 years in prison.

Mr. Boris Obraztsov - the owner of "39 region" newspaper. I would say the best local political newspaper of the region. He was publishing the opinions of members of Baltic Republican Party. Recently, he was publishing the articles about ecological disasters that Kremlin brought to the region like mining potash in Nivenskoje ( Wittenberg). Those publications brought him to prison. He is charged with extortion. He is facing up to 8 years in prison.

Boycotting a World Cup 2018 in Russia!

The Russian Federation systematically violates human rights. A repressions against dissidents have been toughened recently in Kaliningrad (Königsberg), human rights were abandoned and Freedom of Speech is prohibited. Any manifestation of civil liberty is severely suppressed, representatives of opposition are arrested and court decisions are falsified

In March 2014, on a trumped-up charges, three “Prisoners of Flag” were convicted (http://khpg.org/en/index.php?id=1434561287).
  

In May 2017, activists Alexander Orshulevich, Igor Ivanov and an orthodox priest Nikolai Mamaev were arrested (https://memohrc.org/en/news_old/three-persons-charged-case-baltic-vanguard-russian-resistance-bars-are-political-prisoners). They are still detained without a trial ( no justice in Russia anyway). Members of opposition and other parties were also searched (https://openrussia.org/mobile/notes/713049/). Charges are being made for any statement of person’s point of view on the Internet that do not coincide with the Kremlin's official policy.

On September 27 2017, Nikolai Sentsov was arrested for his political position. Mr. Sentsov faces 10 years in prison only because he spoke in favor of a political changes in Russia and promoted democratic values (https://memohrc.org/en/news_old/nikolai-sentsov-charged-case-baltic-vanguard-russian-resistance-bars-political-prisoner). The authorities systematically send threats who dare to express openly their political point of view (https://rugrad.eu/public_news/952228/).
 

In November 2017 the FSB arrested Alexander Petrovsky for a political opinion expressed on Telegram ( social network). He is still in FSB prison in Kaliningrad (Koenigsberg). The authorities are planning to throw him into a psychiatric hospital. https://graniru.org/Politics/Russia/Politzeki/m.265500.html  

In November 2017 the FSB in Kaliningrad ( Koenigsberg) arrested a local MP and a journalist Mr. Igor Rudnikov. He is still in a prison in Moscow. https://cpj.org/2017/11/russian-editor-arrested-allegedly-injured-in-custo.php
 

We, the activists of Koenigsberg (Kaliningrad), believe that in such circumstances, it is impossible to host the World Cup in the region, where human rights are violated and there is no freedom. Participation in games casts a shadow on the sport, which has a purpose to unite people and all international organizations. We urge you to refuse to held the games in Kaliningrad and not cooperate with the new neo-Soviet regime of the Kremlin, expressing that way a support for the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 
Boycott to a World Cup, FIFA and a sponsors of FIFA. The Coca-Cola, Adidas, McDonald's, Budweiser, KIA, VISA etc. they all going straight to a garbage bin for supporting indirectly political oppression in Koenigsberg ( East Prussia).

Poland refused an asylum to political prisoner from Königsberg.

Dmitry Fonarev (on the left) picketing Russian Embassy in Warsaw with flag of Königsberg

Poland refused an asylum to Dmitry Fonarev a Prussian supporter from Königsberg. He spent a year in FSB prison for political action. He committed no crime, just put up a German flag at FSB office in Königsberg.
In 2015 he crossed the Polish border and asked for asylum. During his stay in Poland he learned Polish and worked all over the Poland contributing to Poland.
In October 2017 Polish authority sent him a refusal of asylum. We publish part of it in Polish.

The base for refusal is totally absurd. Polish authorities writing, that "at this moment there are no military operations in Russia, as well as there is no information on mass persecution of the population, and the majority of Russians, regardless of their nationality and religion, lead a normal life". To defend his human rights Polish authorities are sending Dmitri to Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights (a fake consultative body of neo-Soviet dictator Putin) in Moscow.
The Polish authority needs an urgent reality check.
A full video interview of Dmitry to Polish political magazine "Wyborcza".

In January 2018 Dmitry left Poland to avoid deportation to Russia by Polish authorities. Now, he is on the run not only from ruthless Russian authority, but from Polish authority too.
"It is like a teenage love. I loved and cared about Poland, but Poland dumped me." - said Dmitry.
We, the Baltic Republican Party demand answers from Polish authorities.

A new arrest in Königsberg.

Nikolay Sentsov, second from left - prisoned. Alexander Orshulevich, first from right - prisoned.


















Political activist Nikolay Sentsov arrested by FSB in Königsberg. Just yesterday we talked with him. Lately he was living in Poland ( East Prussian part) and came back to Russia for a few days, where he was arrested. A full blown political oppression goes in Königsberg. Russia is a member of Council of Europe. Who will answer in Council of Europe for political oppression of pro-Europeans, right in the center of Europe in Königsberg? Four political prisoners for today in Königsberg. Their names are: Nikolay Sentsov,  Igor Ivanov, Alexander Orshulevich, Nikolay Mamaev (priest).

Mr. Nickolay Sentsov

Historical parallels of USA and East Prussia.

The archives of the founding father Benjamin Franklin.
 
http://www.historycarper.com/1773/09/22/an-edict-by-the-king-of-prussia/
Benjamin Franklin wrote “An Edict by the King of Prussia” for Philadelphia’s Public Advertiser in September of 1773. This satirical article mocks the dominating relationship that Great Britain held over the Colonies by paralleling the illogical relationship between Prussia and Great Britain. Franklin, from a Prussian point of view, highlights the restrictions and laws that Prussia intends to impose on Britain.
The tyrannical approach of Britain led colonists to produce satirical works and propaganda to encourage the people to stand up for their rights, ultimately leading to the start of the Revolutionary War.
Strangely enough, there are historical parallels of Great Britain with American Colonies and Russia with a colony in East Prussia. We are on the right American path to future Independence for East Prussia.

Freedom to political prisoners in Neo-Soviet Russia!

One of the leaders of Russian nationalists Dmitry Demushkin was thrown in prison for 2.5 years for a picture of a political rally in social media. He is a supporter of Königsberg and de-Sovietization. The Kremlin throwing in prison Russian nationalists who disagree with neo-Soviet policies of Kremlin and who against war in Ukraine. The other well known cases of political repression of Russian nationalists are Mr. Alexander Belov case (7.5 years of prison), Mr. Maxim Martsinkevich case (5 years of prison) and BARS group case in Koenigsberg.

The political oppression in Königsberg.

On morning May 27, the FSB and Russian police arrested 4 Russians. Igor Ivanov, Alexander Orshulevich, Nikolay Mamaev (priest) and Eugeny Artushenko. There were searches at their homes, the computers and political literature were seized. Mr. Artushenko and Mr. Orshulevich were beaten up during the interrogation at police station. The police charging people with "creation of extremist group". There is nothing extreme about expressing your political opinion. There is a monthly plan for police and FSB about arrests and "criminal" cases against political activists. Four kids of Alexander Orshulevich are left without a father and any support. The charges now - article 282 part 1 (the establishment of an extremist organization) of Russian Criminal Code, up to 10 years of prison. The communistic dictator Putin brought a few political articles into Russian Criminal Code, article 282 is one of them.
The charge by FSB states, that the "extremist" group was planning to overthrow the Kremlin authority in former East Prussia with aiming on a secession from Russia and Independence within European Union. Clearly, there are double standards of Kremlin in usage of Self-Determination Right. Kremlin supports separatist in Ukrainian Crimea and Donbass region, but punish Prussian secessionists.
 Update: the local judge Mr. Oleg Lasko gave 2 months of temporary detention to Mr. Orshulevich, Mr. Mamaev and Mr. Ivanov. During this period of time the FSB and Russian police will be writing а "criminal" case. The FSB is hunting now for other members of "BARS" organisation.
