Police raids too high-brow bookstore

Police in Moscow raided the Falanster bookstore on 6 May 2008, looking for literature linked to the banned National Bolshevik Party (NBP). This is the second time police has raided the store in search of editions of NBP’s newspaper, Limonka, and other banned literature.

Falanster’s owner, Boris Kupriyanov, said the pressure is related to the fact that the store sells “too intelligent” books. Falanster, located near Moscow’s central Tverskaya Street, sells mostly intellectual literature and is a frequent venue for various cultural events.
