Security officials came to the "Open Space" in Moscow, where the evening of support for the defendants in the "Tyumen case" was held. They put the participants of the evening facing the wall, according to the OP channel. The detainees are searched, they are required to unlock their phones, show their Telegram correspondence and recent bank transfers in order to find out “whether they sponsored terrorism,” Sota reports, citing one of the participants in the event.
“At least 7 people are facing the wall. Chairs are overturned in the room, the security forces are rummaging behind the reception desk,” writes Sota.
A 14-year-old boy was among the detainees, according to the newspaper. His brother was chased away from the building by the security forces with the words "Let's go home from here."
According to one of the participants, when the security forces broke into the premises, they put the men on their faces on the floor, and the women were placed with their faces to the wall. A random passerby who simply looked at the search through the window was grabbed and pushed into the premises, writes Sota.
Leysan Mannapova, a lawyer from OVD-Info, is not allowed into the premises. According to her , the security forces demanded from her a printed power of attorney, and not a warrant filled in with a pen, and offered to guess whether her detained client was in the building or in the paddy wagon.
Six anarchists from Tyumen, Surgut and Yekaterinburg are accused of creating a "terrorist community". According to the FSB, they planned to blow up military registration and enlistment offices, police departments and railroad tracks that transport military equipment to Ukraine. All six defendants in the case gave confessions, after which they admitted that they had signed them under torture. They said that the security forces shocked them, choked them with a plastic bag, and threatened them with rape.
