Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, at least 112 people in Russia have been prosecuted for setting fire to military registration and enlistment offices, guerrilla actions on railways and other radical anti-war actions or preparations for them. The human rights project “Zone of Solidarity” was involved in the calculations.
According to investigators, 51 out of 112 people are being prosecuted for setting fire to military registration and enlistment offices and other authorities, 36 people are accused of sabotage on the railway, 17 of preparing terrorist attacks, 7 of setting fire to cars with Z-symbols, and one person is being prosecuted for other reasons. 36 out of 112 people were prosecuted under the article “Terrorist act” (Article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), 31 under the article “Destruction of property” (Article 167). Also, people are accused under articles “Sabotage” (Art. 281), “Hooliganism” (Art. 213) and others. The article of 14 out of 112 people is unknown.
78 out of 112 prosecuted are in jail, five received suspended sentences, four are serving sentences in the form of imprisonment. One person is under house arrest and under house arrest. There is no information about 23 detainees.
Solidarity Zone emphasizes that this is incomplete data, as the Russian authorities do not always report new criminal cases. In addition, some information about the persecution gets into the media without the personal data of the detainees, which greatly complicates the possibility of its verification. Also, the statistics did not include those killed by the security forces during the arrest and those who were convicted under administrative articles.
Despite the fact that during the year of the war, the Russian authorities and security forces almost completely destroyed the opportunity for protest, the partisans continue to carry out various anti-war actions. The Insider spoke to some of them and asked them to talk about how to join the radical resistance. Read more in the memo of the partisan.
