Our brothers and sisters in Crimea....

Recommended Posts

Supplicating prayers for our dear young sister that her spiritual, emotional, physical and mental health be stabilized quickly..  Losing a child In the womb, can be very difficult for a woman to experience .  Although we are not under the Mosaic law, the principle applies.  There is much to answer for on the part of the opposes.

When once a child had been conceived, the developing embryo or fetus was considered a soul. Action that resulted in killing a developing child in the womb was handled according to the rule “soul for soul.” (Ex 21:22, 23

Reading this made me feel sick. These people are unspeakably cruel and evil.  There is no doubt who is pulling their puppet strings. 

And it is only going to get worse.


These brothers and sisters are a wonderful example of courage, integrity and loyalty to those us who live in more peaceful places and who do not have to endure these atrocities at this time. 

 

We certainly need to remember them in our prayers always.

78-year-old Alexander Petrovich Ursu, repressed for his faith and later recognized as an innocent victim, was pinned to the wall and dropped to his knees, handcuffed. This happened on the evening of November 15, 2018 in the city of Dzhankoy (Crimea), where the FSB forces, with the support of riot police, carried out rough incursions into homes of citizens suspected of practicing the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses. Criminal case under Part 1 of Art. 282.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation was instituted against the 46-year-old local resident Sergey Filatov. It is not yet known about the arrests, the handcuffs were removed from Alexander Ursu.

The Russian authorities in 2018 repeat the tragic mistake made during the period of Stalinism. Since the early 1930s, the family of Alexander Ursu has identified himself as a religion of Jehovah's Witnesses. In the 1940s, his father, uncle, and grandfather were sent to labor camps because of their religion. In 1947, with a severe injury, but alive, only his father returned. “When I was nine years old, our family and hundreds of other Witnesses from Moldavia were sent to Siberia,” Alexander Ursu said in his autobiography. “On July 6, 1949, we were loaded into cattle cars, and we drove non-stop for 12 days. Having traveled more than six thousand kilometers, we arrived at the Lebyazhye station. There we were already waiting for the local authorities. We were divided into small groups and immediately resettled in different places. For our group, a small empty school has become the home. We were exhausted and depressed. ” Later, Alexander Ursu was repeatedly subjected to various forms of pressure from the state security organs, including searches in his house. On May 21, 1991, Alexander Ursu was rehabilitated in accordance with the Decree "On additional measures to restore justice to victims of repression that took place during the 30s-40s and early 50s". Certificate of rehabilitation under No. 23 was issued to him on June 17, 1991.

The punitive bodies in modern Russia view any worship of Jehovah as participation in the activities of an “extremist organization” (referring to the decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation to liquidate all 396 registered organizations of Jehovah's Witnesses), while the Russian government officially states that the decision of the Supreme Court contains restrictions or prohibition to practice the above teaching individually. " “There is a contradiction between the stated position of the Government of the Russian Federation and law enforcement practice. This cannot but cause concern, since criminal prosecutions and arrests have become systemic, ”the statement of the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights said in a statement .

This is the section about the sister and her miscarriage. Sorry about the quality of translation.

 

During a search, a 50-year-old believer had arterial pressure increased, and part of his face, body, and arm paralyzed him. An ambulance was called, the man was hospitalized with a micro stroke.

One of the women had blood pressure during a search, and an ambulance team was called. While physicians assisted a 53-year-old woman, law enforcement officers continued to search her home.

One of the men the next morning after returning home after interrogation, he discovered the defeat in his house. His 22-year-old wife was hospitalized. As a result of the psychological trauma, she miscarried. Young spouses do not have children and are experiencing hard tragedy.
