Negrebetskikh's social activity, strikes, which he organized, hunger strikes, which he personally repeatedly carried out preventing the plant from shutdown, and protecting the rights of workers, has long caused severe irritation among the powers that be. Not once the worker-communist received threats, which have increased especially after his participation in the Congress of labor collectives and his nomination as a candidate for deputy.
Russian authorities are constantly looking for reasons to accuse the opposition representatives of extremism. However, we are increasingly dealing with political terror against communists. The attack against Alexander Negrebetskikh is yet another event in the infamous series.

The CPRF expresses its full support to Alexander Negrebetskikh in its struggle for rights and interests of the working people of the plant and the city of
