jw-russia.org: Dmitry Mikhailov - who is he?

 

Criminal proceedings from April 19, 2018

Quote

His mother, who does not share the religious beliefs of her son, at the time of her arrest, exclaimed: "Instead of pursuing honest people, it would be better to catch criminals!"

 

Neighbors Mikhailovs submitted to the court a description according to which Dmitry "proved himself to be a caring husband and son ... Dmitry is sympathetic, sociable, polite, responsible, without bad habits ... always has a neat appearance and is ready to help ... takes care of an elderly mother in 1939. r., provides her with medicines and care ... Her only son. "

That says it all!

Brother Greg, let's not forget about our dear Eritrean brothers, sisters and children who are unjustly incarcerated in prisons (i.e. shipping containers) under a brutal dictatorship simply because of their faith.  Along with our Russian family, we must also continually pray for our family in Eritrea. 

 

May Jehovah God continue to give strength to them all in their tribulations! -_-

jw-russia.org: Arrests of believers across Russia

 

An article with a video and personal comments of our brothers and sisters about what has been happening in Russia the last two months

That made me cry but not from desperation, I know Jehovah has not abandoned the brothers but I hate injustice and the bullying the inhumane treatment... they think our God will not defend us but he will in his due time. In the meantime I suppose we all have a role to play in staying faithful, standing strong in our own personal individual battles and praying for our family in Russia and Eritrea...Jehovah will not be late!

Such an encouraging article about the support given to our arrested brothers

jw-russia.org: Arrests in Orenburg did not intimidate believers

 

About 100 people were not afraid to come to the Orenburg regional court on June 6, 2018, to support fellow believers who were imprisoned for their faith. With tears on their faces, they looked bravely at the judges. Judges and prosecutors sent the believers behind bars with their heads bowed.

 

Three weeks earlier , when the Industrial District Court of Orenburg issued a ruling on the arrest of Vladimir Kochnev and Alexander Suvorov, the hearing lasted from 11am until almost midnight. All this time about 50 people were in the building and in the courtyard of the court. From the window of the courtroom it was evident that some hold children in their arms. Someone on the bike brought hot food. People did not disperse to catch a glimpse of how those arrested one after another will be put in a convoy car and shout to them the words of support: "Hold on!", "We are with you!", "We will support your girls!"

 

After rough incursions into the homes of 19 families , as well as detentions, interrogations, threats and the use of physical force, the believers found the courage to come to court and were ready to look into the eyes of their offenders - the employee of the CEC Beloshenko, the officers of the FSB, the SC and the prosecutor's office.

 

With the permission of Alexander Suvorov, a letter was read in the court, which was written to him by a wife and daughter in the SIZO. "Daddy, I really love you and I want you to come back soon. When you come back, we'll tell you a lot of interesting things. We are all supported. I met many people. We really, really miss. Mom promised that before you come back, we'll buy a dog, Jack Russell , - written with a child's hand, and a felt-tip pen: - You're the best dad in the world" Sasha ," writes Natalia Suvorova, "please do not worry about us at all. Around us is a sea of love and support! » "

Its really disgusting. They will come to their end in Jehovah's due time. We can sense that something is happening. Its like the world has turned sideways. Everyone in the world can sense something is wrong but they can't put their finger on it. Its like they see the picture and its out of focus. They can sense that the car is drifting off the road and can't grab the steering wheel. This Russian situation is one more thing to push it over the edge.

jw-russia.org: Saratov: searches, throws and arrest of three believers

 

On June 12, 2018 in Saratov and the region law enforcement officers conducted mass searches in the homes of citizens suspected of professing the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Three were arrested and sent to jail:

43-year-old Konstantin Bazhenov,

35-year-old Alexei Budenchuk and

33-year-old Felix Makhammadiev. All 2-month detention (until August 12, 2018)

 

What is terrible that the special forces by mistake forced the door of neighbours that were not witnesses. Also they planted literature in children's coats and "discovered" two books, one of which was included in the Federal List of Extremist Materials.

 

Quote

More than 10 people were taken to the FSB for interrogation, some were interrogated until almost midnight. On the whole, during the interrogations, the believers followed the instructions from the Bible: "I will restrain my mouth, while the wicked are before me. I was dumb and mute, and I was silent even about the good. "(Bible, Psalm 38: 2, 3, The Synodal Translation).

So courageous!
