At 6:30 AM on the morning of 9 February a janitor at the FIAN Institute found the body of Nikita Kalin, born in 1991. He had been stabbed 61 times. His family are now in dire need of support.
At 8:00 on the day the body was found police arrived, and 11:00 AM police contacted mother of the murdered. according to mother, Nikita 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, blood of Nikita was found in clothes of the arrested.
It is obvious, that Nikita was attacked with a group, and police also
told to mother off the record, that detained suspect is a national
socialist activist, and refuses to name any suspects. Besides brutality
of the murder, investigation has still not questioned mother of Nikita,
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. However, 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
Nikita was from a simple working class family, and never hide his
anti-fascist and anarchist views.
