The Polish news source ZNAK reports that Behemoth was released and deported by a Russian judge in Yekaterinburg after being detained for visa issues. The article indicates (translated from Polish using online resources) that this morning, after being detained the previous evening, a judge decided to release and deport the musicians for failure to obtain a non-business "humanitarian" visa after possessing a valid business visa from the Russian consulate in Warsaw.
The publication reportedly interviewed band leader Adam Michal Darski (a/k/a Nergal), who described the conditions of confinement, stating that the band was held "in a very small room" the size of about a "half meter." The walls were "smeared with feces" and the band was forced to urinate in plastic bottles when denied a request to use the toilet.
Darski was asked whether the band had any plans to issue a complaint with the consulate in Warsaw, to which he replied "First, we want to relax." When asked about further tours and shows in Russia, he replied (translated via online resources): "I think now is not the best time to travel to Russia. So, on May 25 we had a scheduled concert in Moscow. Apparently, the show will have to wait until next time."
