A chairman of the public monitoring committee of the Kirov region Artur Abashev and a member of the PMC Denis Shadrin are detained in Kirov.
As Artur Abashev explained by the phone, the events of that night began with the call of the head of the "Progress Party" Kirov branch (former "People's Alliance") Vitaly Brumm; he announced that he and dozens of bar customers of the “Che Pay” bar were illegally detained.
Both members of the PMC responded to the scene to sort out the situation and to find out where the detainees were taken, to go there and find out if their rights are violated.

“We entered the place. There was a SWAT officer wearing mask at the entrance. He asked what we want and who we are. We introduced ourselves, submitted documents and mandates of the PMC and asked on what basis people are detained, where they are taken. Then he called the other officers, who, as it turned out, worked in the department for combating the illicit drug trafficking. We repeated our questions to him, instead of the answers he gave the order to detain us, and then my arms were twisted, fettered with handcuffs behind the back; we were taken out of the room and shoved into a company car. First they brought us to Vorovskogo, 8, to the drug department, drew up a report on conveyance, without explaining anything about the causes of it. Upon this the police insulted us, forbidden calls, no one could know where we are,” the chairman of the PMC told the details of the arrest.
