Yuri Chervochkin: Martyr

The Finland blog IStori has the following information on yet another brutal attack on an opposition figure in Putin's Russia, taken from the website of the Society Promoting Tolerance, located in Nizhny Novgorov

We are calling on all people of good will to help raise money necessary to cover medical treatment of Yuri Chervochkin, aged 23.

Yuri Chervochkin is from Serpukhov (Moscow Region) is still in coma after he had been beaten up on November 23, the day before the March in Moscow. He was found at the entrance to his apartment building. He suffered a grave head injury and one of his arms that he tried to protect himself with was also injured. The "" webpage editorial office has the names of the suspects from among the UBOP (special detachment to combat organized crime at the Ministry of the Interior).

Yura had called the office an hour before he was found with his head broken. He told that there were two UBOP servicemen who threatened him with "tearing off his head" a few days before that. He told that he was being followed by some UBOP people who he had recognized. It was not a robbery as the assaulters didn't take the money, or a watch or an expensive mobile phone. He has been taken to Burdenko Hospital. His doctors find his condition to be stable but grave. They tell that it is possible to save his life although the consequences of the head injury are inevitable. Yura is trying to open his eyes and he reacts to pain irritants. He has not regain consciousness. Every day of treatment there costs 20,000 rubles.

A ruble account has been opened to collect the money necessary to provide him with medical treatment.

ОПЕРУ Московского ГТУ Банка России
БИК 044525225
К/С 30301810340000604040

The address of the bank is: Serpukhov, Lenin Square,12/20

The name of recipient Chevochkina Nadezhda Gennadyevna (Yura's mother). If you can send your donations in foreign currency, it is better to do it by Western Union sending the money directly to Yura's mother. Even small donations might help Yura.

Additionally to this information, Anna Ploskonosova (aged 18) is currently under orders not to leave the territory of Tula city. She is under criminal investigation into alleged resisting the police on 7 November when they held a rally which was dispersed by the police. The 18-year-old girl (her weight is 48 kg) is being accused of injuring an eye of 36-year-old riot policeman, 180 sm tall.

Thank you for your help and concern.
