National Bolshevik Party Leader’s Car Bombed!

A car belonging to Russian opposition leader Eduard Limonov exploded in flames Saturday morning in Moscow. Limonov, a leader of the Other Russia coalition and the banned National Bolshevik Party, was preparing for a protest set to take place the next day. The explosion took place outside Limonov’s residence, as a driver turned the key in the ignition. Limonov, who was inside his apartment at the time, said his driver managed to escape with only slight burns on his face. (This is like out of a “Transporter” movie). Limonov received a threatening phone call 10 minutes after the explosion. “When I picked up the phone,” Limonov said, “an unknown person asked me: ‘Well, how are you Eddie? Still aren’t afraid of engaging in opposition activities?'” Limonov’s supporters believe the explosion was a personal warning to Limonov before an anti-government protest scheduled for the next day. City officials had refused to grant the demonstration a permit, although the organizers decided to hold the protest anyway. During the Sunday event, titled “Russia without Putin,” Limonov was arrested along with dozens of activists. We’ve had our differences with new approaches by Limonov. When the split took place in the National Bolshevik Party, we took the side of the anti-Limonov faction now organized as the National Bolshevik Front. Nonetheless, we protest this attack on Eduard Limonov! limonov
