July 21 the JW.org website was banned.

July 20, Russia declares a state of emergency due to a swarm of locusts and southern Russia!

July 27, apocalyptic lightning storms irrupt over Moscow!


Are these unusual events for that area at this time?

Do you have any links that provide more information?

This particular swarm of locusts did not miraculously appear on July 20, it had been affecting the region since June.


If this did come from Jehovah, then he was punishing for something that they hadn't even done yet, something that was never recorded in the Scriptures.

This is starting to sound like the post-Katrina claims that the hurricane was a punishment from god for allowing gays into the city.


Are we really going to start mimicking the attitudes of Christendom, gloating over innocent people suffering merely because they happen to live within the arbitrary national borders of a country ruled by a small group that creates laws to oppose the Kingdom message?

How many times has Russia been put under ban?


Russia has enacted various legal bans against the organization over the past few years.


The locust swarms have been in the region now known as southern Russia every year for decades.


Personally, I'm not seeing the connection here, unless Jehovah brought the plague against people whose only crime was having grandchildren who would eventually try to ban our literature.
