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.
