On the 9th of February, 6:30 in the morning in area of institute “FIAN” a janitor found body of Nikita Kalin, born in 1991. 8:00 police arrived, and 11:00 AM police contacted mother of the murdered man. According to Nikita’s mother, he was stabbed 61 times, besides this his ribs were fractured multiple times, and head was wounded as well. No property was stolen. Currently a suspect of the murder is arrested, and Nikita’s blood was found on the clothes of the arrested.
It is obvious, that Nikita was attacked by a group, and the police also told his mother off the record, that detained suspect is a national socialist activist, and refuses to name any suspects. Besides the brutality of the murder, the police investigaters have still not questioned Nikita’s mother, or his friend who was the last person who saw it. Due to this, we suppose that there will be an attempt to cover the case, as it often hapens in Russia. As well, suspect has already hired a lawyer. We suspect, that investigation is working on interests of the arrested, and thus support is necessary. At this point, a human rights organisation has provided a lawyer, but funds are still needed for funeral costs.
Nikita was from a simple working class family, and never hide his anti-fascist and anarchist views. In case you want to help friends and family of Nikita with funeral costs, you may donate to Anarchist Black Cross of Moscow: http://wiki.avtonom.org/en/index.php/Donate
