The activist rages, he shouts slogans, then he throws the firebomb he brought with him against the wall of the Kremlin – nothing more can be seen in the TikTok video: A passing driver recorded the scenes. Scenes that show a not inconsiderable security gap in the middle of Moscow: after all, the demonstrator was able to penetrate directly to Vladimir Putin’s (69) seat of government with his Molotov cocktail – and also throw the petrol bomb unhindered.
The Kremlin Regiment, quartered in the arsenal of the fortress area, is responsible for security in the Kremlin. This unit reports to the FSO, the “Federal Service for Guarding the Russian Federation”, the Russian personal protection for the president and government. The service has around 40,000 employees.
Nothing is known about the further fate of the activist who threw the petrol bomb. According to eyewitnesses, dozens of people are arrested every day during the mass protests in Moscow.
