Use of gas in cells against detained after anti-corruption rally on June 12 reported
The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia has not commented on the statements about the use of gas yet.
Those who got to St. Petersburg police station №33 after the rally on June 12 complained that gas had been poured in one of the cells. OVD-Info reports the incident occurred overnight into June 13. There was an unbridled drug addict in one of the cells along with the detained at the rally. All the detainees were transferred to adjacent cells from his one, and policemen used a pepper spray to calm him. About 20 minutes later the gas got into the neighboring cells, in which other detainees were placed.
When people began to choke and ask for help, the police recommended that they be patient.
"I already realized that, probably, that is it, I'm dying, because I'm trying to inhale and I can not. I am taking a breath, and gas gets into my throat, and I'm even more panting", – complained one of the detainees.
One of the detained managed to call an ambulance using a hidden phone. The doctors walked along the corridor and said that it was impossible to stay in the room at all, and 10 ambulance crews would be needed there. After that they left without helping.
Then the police transferred the detainees to the basement, where there were no conditions for a long stay. They were kept there for 28 hours.
"There were chairs and very dusty couches on which it was impossible to lie, because they were ribby, and we spent the night mostly on the chairs and did not sleep. In the evening they gave us Doshirak (Russian brand of instant noodles), but we did not have water. They gave us bottles of carbonated water. We received some stuff from our relatives, but there was nothing hot. A kettle was given to us the next day", the detainees complained.
In total there were 17 people in the station, including one asthma patient. Information about the gas was confirmed by four of them. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia has not commented on the statements about the use of gas yet.
