Biography

Anastasiya Polyakova was born in 1984 in the Murmansk Region. She has a specialised secondary legal education. Since 2003 she has been married to Sergey Polyakov. In their 15 years of life together they have travelled extensively; together they enjoyed learning Serbian, Kazakh, Chinese and Russian Sign Language.

Their life turned into a nightmare on 4 July 2018. They were still asleep, when early in the morning an assault detachment broke down the door of their flat. Masked men severely beat Sergey. Thereafter the couple was arrested and sent to a detention centre, accused of engaging in extremist activity because of professing the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

The many friends of Sergey and Anastasiya were shocked by what happened. The couple has nothing to do with extremism.
