Ilya Klishin, creator of the Facebook groups that organized Russians to participate in Bolotnaya [1] [ru] and Sakharov protest demonstrations, wrote [2] [ru] that his mother had received a call from FSB (Federal Security Services) and his father was summoned to the local police department. Later he added [3] [ru] that he might be accused of inciting ethnic hatred. “It is a Kafkian case… since I've consistently against fascism, Nazism, and any kinds of xenophobia,” wrote Klishin.
