On February 6, 2019, FSB officers detained 35-year-old Khasan Kogut, a resident of the town of Beryozovsky (Kemerovo Region). Whether a measure restricting his freedom of movement will be imposed upon him or not will be decided on February 8.

Earlier in July 2018, homes of citizens suspected of practicing the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses, including that of Mr. Kogut, in Beryozovsky were searched. Vadim Levchuk and Sergey Britvin were arrested and have been imprisoned for more than 200 days.

As requested by the investigator, Mr. Kogut and his wife reported to the FSB department. He was promised to have his laptop, which was seized during the July searches, returned to him.
