According to Arsen, he went to the FSS building after learning that his brother Asan had disappeared. His father was there. When Arsen heard an FSS officer warn the audience about the violation of the "decree" of the occupying head of Crimea on the "introduction of high alert" and saw the paddy wagons approaching, he decided to leave so as not to be detained. However, 200 meters from the FSS building, he was overtaken and rudely detained, falling to the ground.

"They twisted, I even had traces left - hematomas, scratches. When they beat me, I flew another five meters, swept on my elbows", - Arsen said.
