Dmitriy Terebilov Imprisoned for His Faith Faces Extension of His Sentence for Talking About God with a Cellmate. New Case InitiatedKostroma Region
On April 20, 2023, Dmitriy Terebilov, who has already served a year and a half of his term in a penal colony for his faith, became a defendant in a new criminal case. The reason it was initiated was simply that he answered questions from a cellmate about the beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Terebilov now faces a more than twofold increase of his prison term from 3 to 8 years.
Since the end of May 2023, he has been in Detention Center No.1 in Kostroma.
Interestingly, Dmitriy himself learned about the Bible when previously serving a prison term. Immediately he changed for the better and the administration of the penal colony was so impressed that they themselves petitioned for his parole. However, for the same Christian beliefs, in September 2021, Dmitriy was sent to a strict regime colony.
