Vitaly Koltsov

Vitaly Koltsov, an alumnus of the Faculty of Philosophy at the Russian State University for the Humanities, threw a Molotov cocktail at a police paddy wagon in Moscow to protest the war against Ukraine.

Before the protest, Vitaly Koltsov posted a poem about fiery hearts lighting up the darkness. The man went to throw a Molotov cocktail in the centre of the capital dressed in a suit and carrying a suitcase.

“If the day is extinguished forever,

Our glory will not fade

Death is given only once,

Let’s choose it to our liking

So as to see, at the end,

The desert illuminated

By our fiery hearts

By the rising sun.”

Vitaly Koltsov is the father of three children and has been charged under Article 317 of the Russian Federal Criminal Code (endangering the life of a law enforcement officer). He faces up to twenty years in prison if convicted.
