There was another attack against Alexey Etmanov, leader of the independent trade union of the Ford car factory in the Russian city of Vsevolozhsk, near St Petersburg, on 14 November 2008. Hroniki.info reports that after the attack on 7 November 2008, Etmanov’s fellow union activists have been guarding his security.
On 14 November 2008, Etmanov was returning from work at around 1 am at night together with his wife. Two trade union activists waited in the car outside Etmanov’s house to make sure he got safely home.
Etmanov noticed that the lights were out on his floor and the floor below. Sensing danger, he drew his stun gun. He noticed there was somebody hiding in the corridor. Etmanov demanded that the man come out. The man then pounced on Etmanov, holding a steel pipe. Etmanov shot into the air with his stun gun and managed to escape through the exit.
Etmanov’s fellow activists blocked the exit, and Etmanov called the police. The police patrol arrested a young man, aged around 25 years. The police found a metal pipe and an abandoned mobile telephone in the corridor. The police took the man to the local precinct. The police is now considering whether to begin a criminal case.
