The text on the website kashin.Pavlensky guru explains that the intended amount to spend on legal support of “seaside guerrillas”: a group of young people who killed policemen in Primorye in 2010. They are motivated by the fact that the local police alleged were corrupt through and through, facilitated drug trafficking and terrorized the population.

According to Pavlensky, “there is reason to believe” that “the organizer and the organizers of the prize” try to dictate to him how he should dispose of the money. In particular, he said, the funds would be awarded to him if the artist intended to “pay off” to them by the FSB to pay a fine imposed for the arson of the doors of the building of FSB on Lubyanka square).
Pavlensky, however, has repeatedly stated that he is not going to carry out the sentence, as it believes the FSB “terrorist organization”. The “Primorsky partisans” he calls “insurgents” and explains that he would like to help them in the trial, as their terms extending to 25 years, “it’s a one — way ticket”. State solicitors, the artist does not trust, because they “are no different from the Prosecutor.”
His appeal Pavlensky wants to fight the “dictatorship of partisanship”, though does not exclude that abrucena him money may be the result of “absurd misunderstanding”, even if it is unlikely.
Recall that all the punishment and serving seven of the “Primorsky partisans”, one of them, Alexei Nikitin, a life sentence, the other terms account for more than 20 years (except Vadim Kovtun — 8 years and 2 months).
