The Russian president, mr. Putin said clearly that he only forbade the Watchtower organization, but that he had nothing against the PERSONAL faith of every Jehovah's Witness. The reality is proving that this man is a REDOMED HYPOCRITE.
Reportedly, the search for Jehovah's Witnesses by local authorities is forcing people to move to Finland and other European countries.

Religious persecution forces Jehovah's Witnesses to leave Russia.

Following the banning of the religious group by the Supreme Court of Russia, The Barents Observer reports that the members are being persecuted by the Russian security agency and the Russian National Guard.

On Friday, April 20, 2018, two Jehovah's Witnesses were arrested in a Russian city called Polyarny. They were arrested after raids in at least six places, according to the newspaper of the regional authorities, Murmanski Vestnik.
Incursions like this, followed by other forms of persecution, are forcing the members of the religious group to leave the country.

They started fleeing Russia in 2017. There are now around 1,000 Russians in Finland and other European countries.

According to Veikko Leininen, spokesperson for the section of Jehovah's Witnesses in Finland, "at least many dozens are coming".
Religious persecution in Russia

On April 20, 2017, the Russian Supreme Court banned Jehovah's Witnesses and officially branded them as an extremist organization.

The ruling also established that any Russian who discovered himself as a member would be imprisoned for six to ten years. A year has passed since the court's decision and things have gone from bad to terrible.

According to reports, 17 properties have been confiscated, while there are ongoing lawsuits to seize 52 other properties.

Jaroslav Sivulsky, representative of the European Association of Jehovah's Witnesses, says: "After the decision of the Supreme Court, there was an increase in religious intolerance in the country between March 15, 2017 and April 1, 2018 , the "European Association of Jehovah's Witnesses" received information, and it is far from complete, approximately 250 violations of the rights of believers, including attacks, vandalism, various types of discrimination, dismissals and I like it.

"... We know of 27 cases of vandalism, in most cases insulting insults, damage to the buildings where believers live or where divine services were previously celebrated, in 7 cases, significant damage was caused. 13 citizens reported that after the decision of the Supreme Court they were dismissed or forced to resign by their own will because of their religious beliefs. "

With this level of persecution, who can blame Jehovah's Witnesses for leaving Russia?

    • In 1971 I fasted for 90 days and lost 100 pounds … a pound a day … with the IBWH, “I’m broke, and what the hell” diet. The first week was uncomfortable. Not recommended if you are over 40 years old, or are not chubby to start with. I did drink a lot of water.  
    • In real life “Maria” is probably really someone that looks a lot like Danny DiVito with a skin rash.

    • Maria followed me on Twitter one fine day and she was drop-dead gorgeous. No, I did not follow her back for that reason. Trust me on this: drop dead gorgeous women throw themselves at me all the time; it is a great nuisance because all I want to do is think about God. In fact, I didn’t follow her back at all, not even for the reassuring profile photo she displayed, consisting solely of “Jehovah” in gold-embossed letters. However, I did scroll her timeline and found a suitable place to leave a comment. She soon replied that she had just texted me. Sorry, I told her, I don’t do DM. I stay on the public side of Twitter. “Why?” she wanted to know. “Because if I do so I am immersed in dozens of private chats and I can’t keep up,” said I. She responded that, in that case, I could contact her on WhatsApp. I didn’t reply to that one. Next thing you know she has disappeared and all her notifications with her! I searched out her username: “Account suspended for violation of Twitter rules.” Hmm. I searched for the name on Facebook. It links to a certain bit-coin trader, also drop-dead gorgeous. No, Maria, my dear, I have all the bit-coin I need, thank you very much—even though you are drop-dead gorgeous, even though your profile does say ‘Jehovah’ so I know you are one of us, probably belonging to the congregation right next door. I’ve no doubt she has a separate profile that says Jesus, another that says Buddha, Dagon, Moroni, Baal, and a dozen others.  It is called ‘Affinity Fraud,’ winning someone’s confidence through feigned common roots. It factors into the making of E.T—The Sequel, a movie you may not have seen. In the original, cute, adorable, toddler E.T. charms all who are pure enough to let him into their hearts. But in E.T.—the Sequel, he returns as a surly teenager. He curses, spits, brawls, swears, and in the end destroys the earth with his white-hot power beam, starting with Wall Street.  Steven Spielberg, the movie’s creator, had just lost an ever-loving fortune to the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. Both were Jews. Virtually all of Madoff’s victims were Jews. It was affinity fraud. Not that Maria’s scheme is a fraud, necessarily, but her means of contact certainly was. She’s probably not even drop-dead gorgeous. She’s probably an old hen. And even if she is not, so what? Is not Mrs. Harley also drop-dead gorgeous?

      "Let us hold firmly the public declaration of our hope without wavering, for the one who promised is faithful.  And let us consider one another so as to incite to love and fine works,  not forsaking our meeting together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you see the day drawing near."
      Love you, dear ones! 💖🥰

      "Grace" means "undeserved kindness".
      "For we all received from his fullness, even undeserved kindness upon undeserved kindness."
      "Speak to one another with psalms, praises to God, and spiritual songs, singing and accompanying yourselves with music in your hearts to Jehovah,  always giving thanks to our God and Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
      As you reflect on the blessings (superabundant blessings beyond all we could ask or conceive!) made possible by Jesus' precious blood this Memorial, may you continue to rejoice in the undeserved kindnesses of our beautiful Creator and Friend, Jehovah! Praise Jehovah💖☺️
