Feine Sahne Fischfilet from Rostock, Germany, Moscow Death Brigade, What We Feel from Moscow, Russia, and Los Fastidios from Verona, Italy, combined their efforts to release the split single "United Worldwide" onAudiolith Records with the support of KOB Records, Voice Of The Streets Records, True Rebel Store andLonsdale.de.
Again and again the world hears news from Russia about Nationalists attacking minorities and Antifascists. At the same time authorities continue to intimidate, victimize and criminalize these groups. We feel that it is important to leave the state of shock behind and to show solidarity with the people who make a stand against this racist and nationalist terror. We believe that international solidarity is an important tool in showing the people in Russia that they are not alone. This is why we decided to make the "United Worldwide" split single together, which will feature known and new material from the four bands.
In agreement among the labels and the bands, we’ve decided to donate all proceeds from the sales to the families of murdered antifascists. Specifically to the families of Konstantin Lunkin, Fedor Filatov and Ivan Khurtoskoi, who were murdered by Russian neo-Nazis, some of them in broad daylight. We are especially pleased that the clothing brand "Lonsdale" from London, UK is joining us in showing practical solidarity. We think it is great that the brand is presenting the release and therefore taking a clear stand against Neo-Nazis all over the world.
To this effect… our solidarity against their inhuman ideology. Our cohesion, our friendship against their hate. Druzhba!
Ivan “Kostolom” Khutorskoy
(17.02.83 - 16.11.09)
was an informal leader of Moscow Red and Anarchist Skinheads. As a young punk rocker he decided to stand up against the Neo-Nazis, terrorizing Moscow subcultural scene of 00’s. He and few of his friends became some of the fifirst people who opposed Nazi control and started to kick the boneheads out of punk and hardcore shows. Soon Ivan’s example was followed by many young kids, ready to fight against fascist thugs, and Russian militant Antifa scene started to grow. During all his life Ivan was deeply involved in the struggle, providing security for punk/hc gigs and left-wing demonstrations, defending minorities and organizing martial arts trainings. It’s no surprise that Neo-Nazis saw him as their sworn enemy and were attempting to kill him several times. One of the attacks almost left Ivan severely disabled but his strong will helped him come back to normal life and activism. Unfortunately in November of 2009 he was shot dead at the doorway of his own home. His killer, 28-year-old Neo-Nazi Alexey Korshunov, would accidentally blow himself up with his own grenade in Ukraine two years later.
(23.05.85 - 31.05.10)
was a punk rocker, graffiti writer, an Antifascist and a social activist from Ryazan - a city with a serious Neo-Nazi scene. Despite the fact that local Nazis knew his address, Kostya never concealed his views - he was making Antifa graffiti, helped organizing shows and took part in Antifascist activities both in Ryazan and in other cities. On 23 May 2010 he was attacked by a gang of Nazis near his home and beaten to death by bricks.
On May 30 he died in the hospital.
Fyodor “Fedjay” Filatov
(02.04.81 - 10.10.08)
was one of those who stood at the roots of Moscow Trojan Skinheads - a community of S.H.A.R.P. skinheads from Russia’s capital. He did a lot for the development of Russian Antifascist skinhead scene. Sometimes criticized for being “too violent”
he was a true fighter and a great friend - always on the frontlines, always ready to get into another fight with Neo-Nazi thugs, even if the odds were stacked against him. A worker at the factory he was always ready to spend his last money to help a comrade in need. Nazis were afraid of him and hated him.
In the morning of October 10, 2008 Fyodor was ambushed by a group of people while leaving his home. He received numerous knife wounds and died in the hospital.
