In Krasnoyarsk, New Searches and Interrogations for Faith; Koran Confiscated

Krasnoyarsk Territory

On July 9 and 11, 2019, at least three apartments of persons suspected of professing the views of Jehovah's Witnesses were searched in Krasnoyarsk. Two were questioned about their religion. In one case, law enforcement officers seized the Koran, believing it was relevant to criminal activity.

Update. In an apparent escalation of government attempts to break up or undermine the organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses, it became known on July 16 that the operational-search activities in the houses of Witnesses in Krasnoyarsk (July 9 and 11, 2019) were held by the Federal Security Service of the National Guard of Russia. They searched the house of Sergey Tolstonozhenko, 61, Eduard Belyaev, 50, and Tatyana Feruleva, in whose apartment the Koran was found and seized.
