BULLDOZER TORCHED DURING ONGOING KHIMKI FOREST STRUGGLE
"During the night of 08/03/13 we placed 3 incendiaries
on construction vehicles in a sand extraction complex of Solnechnogorsk
district (near Moscow).
The sand from this site goes to the highway
construction projects in Khimki forest as well as some other regional
developement projects. Two vehicles were completely destroyed: a tracked
dozer and an excavator.
Because of damp weather one of the devices failed to
ignite, so we had to backtrack. With ravaging flames from burning
excavator at our backs, we approached the bomb and

ON FIRE AT HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION SITE
anonymous report, from
Russia With Love:
"On wednesday, 06/03/13, we paid a visit to yet another
highway expansion site. We looked for a decent target and, upon finding
one, put 6 litres of gasoline wired to a timer inside driver's cockpit.
Alas, the excavator didn’t burn out completely: as soon as flames burst
out of the cockpit, workers rushed over and started fighting the fire.
It appears that they have succeeded. Nevertheless, our point was made.
In the following texts we'll speak of ways of assembling a primitive
clockwork timer and how to upgrade on molotov fuse.
A traditional salute to our comrades. We express
wholehearted support to every anarchist who’s got in trouble. We hope
you are reading this. Granted, this period is not the best one for you,
but times will change and this will pass. Of course, no need to hope for
a cloudless future. We wish you luck and all the best.
Our solidarity to all the imprisoned comrades from CCF,
those on the run and under trial. To everyone who continues to fight,
who refuses to bow down. To all our brothers and sisters who finds
strength to resist. We dedicate this arson to you. We see you in the

HORSE SET FREE
"Russia, Krasnodar - Horse Set Free in the Wild
During our scouting journey across the country we
happened upon a lonely stallion chained to a tree. We knew that it
belonged to a horse-breeding farm that sells horseback riding tours to
willing tourists. Since we had our tools of trade (never leave home
without bolt-cutters!) with us, we quickly cut the chains and set the

TORCHED, HUNT SABOTAGED
"We send our fiery greetings to anarchist comrades in
prison: Yana Terenina and Aleksandra Dukhanina. We take this opportunity
to remind about Yana Terenina and her fate. She was put to prison after
an incident near the 'Atrium' shopping mall in Moscow. A fight broke out
between Yana and a lady enamored with furry coats. During the fight
lady�s husband chose to join the action, while the lady herself used
scissors as a weapon. After the trial judge decided Yana and her friend
Maksim fitted 'armed robbery' charges. The fur-enamored lady rejected
all offers of peacefull resolution of conflict.
Aleksandra Dukhanina is awaiting trial in regards with
public disobedience during mass protests of 06/05/2012, when police
forces provoked violence.
In the night of october 28-29 we destroyed a power
substation that gave power to a hunting resort under Tver. We used
bolt-cutters to cut through locks and gain access to the station�s
interior. We planted two incendiaries (5l of gasoline each) and set the
fuse on fire, retreating into the woods.
While moving through the forest we kept encountering
hunting parties with dogs. We did our best to avoid them. Then we
happened upon a hunting decoy (feeding facility for boars and elks). We
vandalized it at first, but after a brief discussion decided to torch it
to the ground. Soon the place was sound ablaze.

FREED FROM HUNTING SITE, CELL TOWER TORCHED
"18 pheasants liberated in Chelyabinsk, cell tower
torched in Kolomna, trees planted elsewhere. Acts of solidarity from
Hunting season in Russia kicked off simultaneously with
autumn rains. Nowadays this is called 'We provide for the best spending
of your leisure time'. Murder of wildlife has become a banal hobby, an
entertainment, a way to relax from working routine in noisy megapolis.
On 21.09 we moved out to attack a farm where wild birds
were bred in captivity. We failed to find bird cages on site, so a
decision was made to torch a meat restaurant (a facility where most
birds end up as meat dishes). But our scouts reported that this building
doubled as a place for animal confinement during autumn and winter time.
So an action was called off for fear of killing animals. We do not
disclose the exact location of the facility because we are not done with
the fuckers yet.
On 23.09 we continued with another attack, breaking onto
the territory of another hunting site (Chelyabinsk region). We liberated
18 pheasants from their cages. It was a first action of this kind for
our collective, so numerous doubts had been voiced. Birds could raise
ruckus and thus alert guards to our presence. But the reality was
different: captives cooperated with us and behaved as silently as
It is above and beyond our capabilities to win freedom for
human captives taken hostages by the system, but we do what we can in
fighting for unconditional freedom for all living beings. So far we are
content to have set 18 birds free.
In the same period we planted about 2 scores of seed
bombs (apple-trees and maples) on territories where it had been possible
to stop clearcuts. We include this fact in our report with explicit aim
of demonstrating that it is possible to add new dimension to
eco-anarchist and insurrectionary projects, the dimension not of
destruction, but creation. Not only do we take pains to destroy the
status-quo, we are also actively involved into the creation of another
world we know is possible.
On 24.09 we torched a cell phone tower that had doubled
as satellite relay. It was situated in Kolomna district (near Moscow),
just several dozen yards from human habitats. The flame eventually
consumed whole length of the tower and we had been enjoying flashes from
exploding equipement for quite some time.
All of the aforementioned acts were carried out in the
spirit of solidarity and support of eco-anarchist and insurrectionary
anarchist prisoners, suspects and refugees throughout the world within
the new wave of decentralized attacks.

"By the end of summer ALF activists have spiked 10 kms
of forest roads in hunting resorts of Naro-Fominsk district of Moscow
region, including roads surrounding ranger houses. Road signs and
hunters' message boards were destroyed or vandalized when possible.
We also cut fences that served to keep wild animals away from
'privately owned' forest and plains.
A huge rabbit, an owl and a hedgehog made their
appearances to share their good will with us. It was a wonderful feeling
to actually see the living animals we're fighting for.

IN DEFENSE OF
reported by activists in Russia:
"Russia. Khimki forest (north of Moscow). Construction
vehicles torched, tree-cutter assaulted, his arm broken.
Unknown activists have torched several construction
vehicles and assaulted tree-cutter at the new toll highway construction
site in Khimki forest. These news appeared in joint declaration,
published by state enterprise �Avtodor� and �North-Eastern concession�
(subsidiary of Vinci). The accidents happened on nights of 19.07 and
�Avtodor� representatives stated that an assault on
tree-cutters took place on 19.07: one of the workers tried to prevent
eco-activists from entering the construction site. In the following
fight his arm broke.
On the night of 21.07 special construction
vehicles were torched: several brand new harvesters and hydraulic
excavator were completely destroyed by fire. Material damage is
estimated to be over $ 2 000 000.
Earlier the same companies
filed a complaint about unknown people opening fire on construction
vehicles (supposedly from �Saiga�, a civil 12-mm carbine) and torching
workers sheds with molotovs.
Eco-activists present at the site
of eco-camp near the construction failed to provide police with evidence
or ideas about the nature of perpetrators."

anonymous report, from

"During the night of March 25-26, Moscow eco-anarchists
visited the Butovo forest where a business class cottage village is
being built. During the night activists were busy in defense of the
Eco-anarchists spiked old, perennial pines and birch
trees. In total, 7 trees were protected, what is not a bad result. Also,
activists cut and dismantled a fence dividing the forest into bourgeois
"possessions" and made it difficult for motor vehicle access, including
construction equipment, by blocking roads with logs and iron pipes. In
general, the mission was completed and most of the pre-planned goals
accomplished. The whole event was quite easy: no police patrols, and
even the guards did not suspect anything.
'Despite the opposition of local residents, the
contractor is continuing construction, cutting down precious forests
which were created dozens or even hundreds of years ago. Eco-anarchists
advocate for the forest and the integrity and inviolability of the

is a whole world for a variety of animals, birds and insects. Breaking
the main link in the chain, namely, a home for all of these beings, will
mean death for all of them. So every sane person has a duty to protect

TOWERS DAMAGED AT HUNTING/FISHING SITE
"2 cell phone towers torched south of Moscow (Rostov-na-Donu
direction). The cottage settlement we chose to disable is a popular site
among hunters. And not only that. Local residents decided to add to the
abuse of wild life and started two commercial fishing resorts. They grow
up fish for it to be hunted by tourists.
So in a festive winter spirit (New Year/Xmas and St.
Vallentine's Day) we decided to send them a message of love and harmony:
1 tower was left completely burned out, another one - severely damaged.
We used incendiaries with 1.5 liters of gasoline/kerosine each.
