  1. MOSCOW: Five Jehovah's Witnesses have been detained in Russia and charged with possessing weapons and running an extremist group, investigators said Wednesday (Oct 10), in the latest case targeting the banned religious movement. They were arrested in the Kirov region northeast of Moscow, where authorities said they found two grenades and a landmine in searches of their homes. The Jehovah's Witnesses are a Christian denomination that originated in the United States in the late 19th century. The Russian authorities consider the movement a totalitarian sect and last year the country's supreme court banned the Jehovah's Witnesses from operating in Russia. "They had been conducting meetings and called on others to join their organisation," Yevgenia Vorozhtsova, a spokeswoman for regional investigators, said. She said officials were investigating how the members of the Jehovah's Witnesses had obtained the ammunition, but declined to provide further details. Yaroslav Sivulskiy, a member of the European Association of Jehovah's Christian Witnesses, said it was the first time the Russian authorities had accused members of the movement of possessing ammunition. "We were shocked," he said from the Latvian capital Riga. "It is both funny and strange. Why mines?" One of those detained was a Polish national residing in Russia, he said. SEARCHES IN SMOLENSK REGION In a statement on Tuesday, investigators said the members of the Jehovah's Witnesses wanted the movement to continue operating in Kirov and nearby towns. Authorities said they had organised clandestine meetings between August 2017 and September this year at which they sang hymns and read "extremist" literature banned in Russia. They had also collected more than 500,000 rubles (US$7,500) in donations from supporters. The five have been detained and charged on suspicion of running and financing an "extremist organisation", the statement said. Sivulskiy said the crackdown on Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia had intensified after President Vladimir Putin was re-elected for a fourth term in March. Around 25 of their members are now in pre-trial detention in Russia, he said. On Sunday, the FSB security service and police searched the homes of people they suspect of being members of The Jehovah's Witnesses in the western Smolensk region, the association said. Two women from the town of Sychyovka have been incommunicado for the past three days, it said in a statement. "They are thought to have been arrested," the statement said. The FSB in Smolensk could not immediately provide a comment. In a report this year, Human Rights Watch accused the Russian authorities of a "sweeping campaign" of harassment and persecution against the movement. The Jehovah's Witnesses say they now number more than 170,000 in Russia, a country of 144 million people where most are Orthodox Christians. Thousands more of their members have fled to other countries. Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/five-jehovah-s-witnesses-detained-in-russia-investigators-10812938
  2. When the woman asked why he was watching the videos, the teenager answered evasively. Media reported the first details of the interrogation of Vladislav Roslyakov’s mother after her son had blown a bomb and shot fellow students at a Kerch college yesterday. According to the Mash Telegram Channel, the woman admitted that a few days before the slaughter, her son had been watching videos of school shootings. When she saw it and wondered why he was doing it, Vladislav said: "No reason." On the day when Vladislav Roslyakov blew up his school, he had waited for his mother to leave for work, and went to college only after that. Earlier, RT reported citing a source in the Crimean Ministry of Education that the teenager’s mother is a nurse at an oncology center, and had joined Jehovah’s Witnesses cult (banned in Russia) a few years ago. On the day the tragic incident occurred, the woman received the victims, who got sent to the oncology center, too. She did not know who was responsible for the college massacre back then. The teenager’s father, who has lived separately for a long time, said during interrogation that it was hard to talk with his son about his school performance. He claimed that his son had been raised to be a good man and had never shown any aggression before. The father admitted he had known that his son had a thing for guns. On the afternoon of October 17, an explosion occurred at Kerch Polytechnic College, while a 4-year student, Vladislav Roslyakov, started shooting. His body was found in the library later. One of his classmates said that once, the kid told him he hated other students and could shoot them all. The classmate did not take it seriously. According to the latest data, 21 people died in the attack. The Mash Telegram Channel published a surveillance video that had caught the shooter a few minutes before the attack. The video shows Vladislav Roslyakov walking towards the school with a backpack and then getting inside the building. https://en.crimerussia.com/gromkie-dela/kerch-gunman-s-mother-caught-son-watching-school-shooting-videos-/
  3. In view of last weeks WT study "Do you have the facts" (August 2018, page 3) and thanks to @Gone Away for highlighting the following reports, I thought I would put this in a separate and concise topic to show an actual and recent example of misinformation. NEWS REPORT: (I cut it a little short because the article went on about the ban in general. You van read the whole thing here: https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/five-jehovah-s-witnesses-detained-in-russia-investigators-10812938) MOSCOW: Five Jehovah's Witnesses have been detained in Russia and charged with possessing weapons and running an extremist group, investigators said Wednesday (Oct 10, 2018), in the latest case targeting the banned religious movement. They were arrested in the Kirov region northeast of Moscow, where authorities said they found two grenades and a landmine in searches of their homes. The Jehovah's Witnesses are a Christian denomination that originated in the United States in the late 19th century. The Russian authorities consider the movement a totalitarian sect and last year the country's supreme court banned the Jehovah's Witnesses from operating in Russia. "They had been conducting meetings and called on others to join their organisation," Yevgenia Vorozhtsova, a spokeswoman for regional investigators, said. She said officials were investigating how the members of the Jehovah's Witnesses had obtained the ammunition, but declined to provide further details. Yaroslav Sivulskiy, a member of the European Association of Jehovah's Christian Witnesses, said it was the first time the Russian authorities had accused members of the movement of possessing ammunition. "We were shocked," he said from the Latvian capital Riga. "It is both funny and strange. Why mines?" One of those detained was a Polish national residing in Russia, he said. THE FACTS: (here I took the liberty of slightly adjusting the translation by Google, so it made more sense) On October 9, 2018, in the city of Kirov, during a search of the house of retired Vladimir Bogomolov, a collector of artifacts from the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), investigators seized fragments of obviously unusable rusty shells. The man was searched because his 69-year-old spouse (the only one of her entire family) professes the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses. The woman does not share her husband's fascination with antiques. Thus, the report that the ammunition was seized allegedly from Jehovah's Witnesses is not true. Jehovah's Witnesses do not take weapons for conscience reasons. For this position they appeared before tribunals of different countries and went to concentration camps. They will be grateful to the media for clarifying the misunderstanding . Vladimir Bogomolov, from whom the relics were confiscated, was in the past an active participant in a search movement (aimed at burying the remains of the soldiers who died in World War II), he was the brigadier of the search party. The activities of his squad were written about in newspapers. On October 9, 2018, upon the discovery of the artifacts, a criminal case on the illegal possession of weapons was instituted, it was allocated in a separate proceeding. The items were sent for examination. Source: https://jw-russia.org/news
  4. The brothers need your prayers❤ RUSSIA.. DOZENS OF JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES ARRESTED (TWO DETAINED) AS POLICE AND ARMED TROOPS RAID HOMES OF JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES CONFISCATING THEIR PROPERTIES AND OTHER VALUABLES. No fewer than 16 residences of peaceful citizens in Belgorod and 12 residences in Kemerovo were subjected to invasion by representatives of law enforcement agencies and to searches. Dozens of people were arrested and several have remained in custody for two days now. As the European Association of Jehovah's Witnesses reported on 9 February, the citizens are suspected of continuing the activity of the organization "Administrative Center of Jehovah's Witnesses in Russia," which was liquidated by decision of the Russian Supreme Court on 20 April 2017, which found the aforesaid organization "extremist." In the evening of 7 February in Belgorod, large groups consisting of personnel of the police, the Investigation Directorate of the MVD, and armed troops of a SOBR [Special Rapid Response Unit] simultaneously barged into a number of private homes of local residents. In some cases citizens were thrown to the floor and pinned to the wall, and then all were forcibly taken to the police department and searches were conducted in the residences. A group of deaf people also was taken to the police department, who had gathered for friendly communication. In all, dozens of people were taken to the police department at 60 Prince Trubetskoy St. At the police department, passport data were collected from citizens, fingerprints were taken, and summons were drawn up. The last of those released left at nine in the morning of the next day. Two citizens, Anatoly Shaliapin and Sergei Voikov, were held in custody for 48 hours and the issue of the selection of measures of prevention was decided within the context of the investigation of a case regarding continuation of the activity of an extremist organization. During the searches, which sometimes were conducted in a brutal form and were accompanied by insulting comments, from the citizens were seized Bibles, all electronic equipment and data storage devices, travel passports, money, and in some cases even photographs that were hanging on the wall. The Russian Ministry of Justice, which last year requested the liquidation of the legal entity of Jehovah's Witnesses, had insisted that the constitutional rights of individual believers would not be affected in any way in the event of the satisfaction of its lawsuit. A criminal case is about to opened for the two brothers that was detained?? www2.stenton.edu www.jw-russia.org #jwrussia
