National-bolsheviks and movement “Smena” have presented huge cap with 60 kg of coppers to the Moscow mayor Juriy Luzhkov. The cap was put facing the Moscow Goverment. National-bolsheviks have made the protest to the greed of Juriy Luzhkov, who sued for Edward Limonov, because he said on radio “Svoboda”, that all moscow courts were over conrol of the Moscow mayor. You may find it funny, but court has sustained a claim. Juri Luzhkov likes to wear different caps, somebody talks that he even sleeps in a cap, thats why national-bolsheviks decided to pay a part of debt for a such amusing way. Unfortunaly the cap was taken by policy.

Police-state is not the same state that is fascist state. Russia before April 14, 2007 was a police state, but it became a fascist state after brutal suppression of “March of Dissenters” on April 14 in Moscow, and April 15 in St. Petersburg. I went through both of them.
On the morning of April 14 center of Moscow was looking like a military camp. Army vehicles, columns of special forces. Passersby were severely scrutinized by soldiers and police officers. Suspected to be dissenters were dragged out almost immediately. I met Garry Kasparov at about 11:30 am near Zubovsky Bulvar. Mikhail Kasyanov was blocked somewhere, so we have decided to go at Pushkinskaya Ploschad, where we have announced dissenters should meet. On telephone we have received an information that biggest group of dissenters have concentrated itself near Museum of Revolution on Tverskaya Ulitsa. We decided to go there. Kasparov’s car have passed across the street on yellow light, so a car with me and my security people have arrived to the place of destination near Museum of Revolution with few minutes delay. I saw Kasparov surrounded by police special forces soldiers. Other soldiers were running towards Kasparov. One of Kasparov’s security people saw my car and me in it, ready to get out, so he signaled me with his hands, “No, don’t go out!”
We have met inside of Leningradski railroad station at midnight. Kasparov with his body guards, surrounded by liberal looking people from United Civic Front, as well as young, huge, skin-headed Sergei Udaltsov with his boys from Red Youth, and us - National Bolsheviks, who made more than a half of the crowd of one hundred. Later, the governor of St. Petersburg, Valentino Matvienko, would label us as “two carriages of agent-provocateurs from Moscow.”
Some groups of plain-clothed policemen were spread over Leningradski rail-road station building. We were ready to their attempt to arrest us here, in Moscow, but plainclothes policemen didn’t move when we started our move to platform. They have let us go. We boarded our train.
Novaia Gazeta have recently accused me of going to tusovkas, they think that I have no right to partying, “in time, when his young activists been held in prisons.” That was written as “Editorial Note,” page 11, Novaia Gazeta N93, issuded on December 12. Later at night, radio station “Echo of Moscow” scrutinized my behaviour on same matter with a help of writer Alexander Kabakov and politician Dmitri Rogozin. Rogozin talked about me correctly, he demonstrated perfect diplomatical style, whereas Kabakov, he is known as Limonov-hater, so it was not surprizing to be supported by Rogozin and ferociously attacked by Kabakov. What is infuriating that liberal Novaia Gazeta and also liberal “Echo” have choosen to attack me, a man with a best personal record amongst leaders of political parties. I am only one who was arrested, was put on trial, was sentenced and eventually been held in diverse prisons and camp for two and a half years. No Russian political leader, liberal or communist have such record. Why to accuse me? What for? Liberals wants me to be in prison 365 days per year? Each year?
Edward Limonov is a complex and a contradictory figure. One of the greatest modern Russian writers, today he is more famous as a politician.
In the outgoing year, Limonov has made several steps towards Islam and Muslims. What has driven him to this? What is his message to the Muslims of Russia and the world? What does he think about Islam and actual problems related to it?
These are the questions we tried to clarify from him directly.
- Recently you published the notorious article “The Islam Card”. As far as we know, your positive attitude towards Muslims and their religion was greatly influenced by your prison experience when you were jailed in Lefortovo in a cell with the Chechen Aslanbek Alkhazurov, which was written in one of your books. Were there other factors that prompted you to look at Islam with sympathy?
The month of June was full of tragical events for National-Bolsheviks Party. On June 17 commando of special police forces have stormed Party headquarters at Maria Ulianova Street. It took them two and half hours to break five metal doors behind which 15 National-Bolsheviks have had barricaded themselves. Four of them have had time to cut their veins, protesting against that brutal eviction by the police.
Since the publication day of the last “General Line” issue many things have changed in our country. In dozens of Russian cities “benefits revolts” took place, where hundreds, thousands of furious pensioners came out on the streets, blocked the main streets of the cities and roads of national significance. In some cities, such as Piter, Kazan, Samara revolts lasted several days. In others they are happening now. The country is agitated. After the holidays, when they entered the metro, autobuses, trains, trolleybuses, the pensioners were faced with a cruel humiliation: the necessity to count their coins with their callous fingers, the fact that their pension booklets don’t guarantee them free rides anymore, they felt themselves last category citizens, used and cheated slaves. And the best of them, the most furious ones rebelled. This is a healthy behavior, a healthy instinct. The stupid state machine howled, stopped and backed for the first time. The angry, disappointed ministers and prosecutors hastily look for the responsible ones. And easily find them. The public prosecutor of the Samara region Mr. Efremov has declared already on January 12th that the organizers of the pensioners meeting in Samara, according to the prosecutor “are the national-bolsheviks from Edward Limonov’s party”.
