Hundreds of anarchist activists reportedly searched in connection with October explosion
On October 31, 2018, a 17-year-old technical student triggered an explosive device in the local Federal Security Service (FSB) building in Arkhangelsk, Russia. According to Znak.com, more than two hundred official searches targeting anarchist circles have recently taken place around the country in connection with the case, which is being investigated as a terrorist attack. On April 2, additional searches were reported in Chelyabinsk, bringing the overall number of searches in the Urals to about 10. The searches have reportedly focused members of a group chat that the attacker used to announce his intentions in advance of the explosion.
