Antifascist and anarchist Arman Sagynbayev, who was arrested and remanded in custody as part of the Penza-Petersburg “terrorism” case, had until recently admitted his guilt. On September 4, he withdrew his confession, explaining that initially he had been tortured into testifying against himself and other young men arrested in the case, and then had been afraid to go against case investigators. His defense counsel has sent a statement to the Russian Federal Investigative Committee.

The story of this interview is different from how interviews are usually
recorded. The person answering the questions is in the place not very
accessible for journalists – Lefortovo Moscow Pretrial Detention
Facility that is still known as RF FSB SIZO (RF FSB SIZO - pre-trial
detention facility of the Federal Security Service of the Russian
Federation – transl.).

Lefortovo is the prison that has both special detention conditions and
special security measures.
