Being an anarchist is not at all as easy as it sounds. It is significant that among people who consider themselves anarchists, not everyone will call himself or herself a revolutionary and even less anarchists seriously think about what does it mean to be a revolutionary.

We live in a world where an endless stream of information and constant updates in news feeds force out even the most important events of the recent past.
However among the events there are those which can not be allowed to fade. One of them occured on October 31, 2018. Anarchist Mikhail Zhlobitsky committed an act of retaliation by activating an explosive device in the building of the FSB Directorate in Arkhangelsk. It was the act of self-sacrifice - Mikhail Zhlobitsky died.

The time has come to elaborate further on our attack on Holosiivskyi district court in Kiev.
Among the commentaries on the attack, we’ve read more than once that some people don’t understand our motives. They don't get how does Azat Miftakhov’s arrest in Moscow have anything to do with a courthouse in Kiev. We'll try to explain, because it’s important to get this seemingly obvious message across.
