Bolsheviks invade Russian finance ministry

Sept. 26, 2006 at 2:07 AM   |   Comments

MOSCOW, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Young members of the National Bolshevik Party were arrested in Moscow Monday during a protest at Russia's Finance Ministry.

The activists invaded the ministry with leaflets demanding that the government return bank deposits lost in the 1990s instead of repaying Russia's foreign debt, Novosti reported. The demonstrators unfurled hammer-and-sickle flags from the building's balconies.

A court banned the party last year. That decision was reversed but a panel of Supreme Court justices ordered a retrial.

In December 2004, 39 members of the party were arrested after they invaded part of President Vladimir Putin's offices.
