With his arrest in early June 2019, investigative journalist Ivan Golunov became a symbol in Russia of resistance to police misconduct. His case was perhaps the first time in the country’s modern history that civil society forced the law-enforcement system to retreat. Over the five difficult days it took to free Ivan, no one was closer to him, his family, and Meduza’s editorial staff than documentary filmmaker Sergey Erzhenkov and the camera crew who assisted him. In this new film from the “Black Flag,” we bring you the Golunov case through the eyes of those who were at the epicenter of these events.

In order to take possession of the weapon, Alexander wanted to seize the local police department. On the night of April 9-10, 1999, the eve of the Orthodox Easter, Sysoev fired at the police department of the city of Vyshny Volochek. As a result of this attack, three police officers were killed. Sysoev was detained, and after an investigation in 2000, the court declared him insane and sent him to compulsory psychiatric treatment. 15 years later, in 2015, Sysoev was released.
