About 8pm, in front of our building appeared police patrol car. It's not
an extraordinary situation, so apart from informing my mates I didn't
care about it at all. After 20 minutes prisoner van came and the
policemen started breaking into the building. They even didn't try to
talk to us. We usually don't let police in, and they are aware of it.
When we noticed what was going on we started informing our mates and press.
We live on the first floor. The entrance to our flat constitute metal
Door and a valve. When they broke through the first door on the ground
floor I called police officer and told him about it. Apparently, the
patrol that came after my notification actually helped the rest instead
of confirming the authenticity of my notification. After approximately
30 minutes they managed to get to the valve. We have recorded the
conversation \uffff between one of us and the police. [an excerpt: Please
give your identification number, or show us search warrant ,
(policeman) I'll show you this fucking search warrant as soon as I meet
you on the street, buddy. Nice, huh?] After some time they realized that
we were recording this talk, and They ordered us to let them in
otherwise they'd call fire brigade to help them enter our flat. We asked
about search warrant once again or giving identification numbers but as
they didn't want to give it, we didn't open the valve. After 30 minutes
fire brigade came. At first they tried to break into using crowbars. As
they didn't manage to get in, they decided to use a hack saw. When we
heard what they were going to do, some people lied down on the valve. We
informed firefighters about it and asked them to stop because they may
hurt someone. [Their answer- So be careful guys, it will shake you a
bit! ] They started to strike the wall with the hammers and lever the
valve with crowbars at the same time. In the meantime we started to
barricade- we placed on the valve furniture and container with propane-
butane (we also informed them about it). Suddenly someone who wanted to
defend us started pouring them with water, as a result of it the hack
saw stopped working. Then police flew gas through view finder, and we
escaped to the rooms. After 10 minutes the police got in and started
beating people with truncheons, kicking those who were lying, kneeing on
their backs, kicking their genitals, pulling their hair, threatening and
offending. People put in handcuffs were pulled downstairs.
They surrounded us in front of the building so that we couldn't
communicate. Some people, including those who had come here, were placed
in prisoner van. The police searched our flat, and despite requests
didn't allow us to see a doctor.
Our pregnant friend, who wasn't inside the building- she had come here
during the action, was knocked down and kicked by a policemen. Everyone
who saw it were shouting: Stop it, she is pregnant! but he ignored
it. (The girl is in the hospital at the moment.)
We weren't accused of anything, but at the police station we were
searched and we had our pictures and fingerprints taken. (I didn't want to let them do it, so I was kept there until late at night). Finally they let us go (everyone except two teenage girls, we don't know what is
happening with them now).
When we came back home, we saw broken furniture threwn around, someone
had stolen beer and threwn food around, besides they peed on the floor.
We don't know anything about present situation of the two teenage girls.
They were neither kept at the police station, nor transported to any
institution dealing with juvenile delinquents. (we were looking for them).
The policeman who attacked the pregnant girl additionally offended her
in the ambulance. She is still in the hospital, she started feeling
