Anarchists Blow Up Mobile Communications Tower in Proletarsky, Russia

On the Sunday morning, October 27, 2019, an explosion occurred in the Proletarsky district of Donetsk. The mobile communications tower of the Phoenix operator was blown up. The civilian population was not injured, but the equipment was destroyed. An explosive device was landed under a booth with equipment and triggered remotely. The people who committed the explosion published a video of the action. They also demonstrated a leaflet explaining their motives: “This was done to draw the attention to the inhuman tortures in the basements of the MGB (Ministry of State Security of “Donbass People’s Republic”). Abuses and tortures with electric wires in the “people’s” republics has become an everyday normality. The people of Donbass should go to a protest rally against tortures, or the fascist republic will be left without communication. ”

Our comrades from the Combatant-Anarchist resource report that they received anonymous information that this action was performed by anarchists, in memory of the act of Mikhail Zhlobitsky.
