June 7 at the Orel Regional Court was scheduled for consideration by the appeal of Jehovah's Witnesses, Danish citizen Dennis Christensen to decide on 2-month detention. This preventive measure has chosen for him the Soviet District Court of Eagle May 26, 2017.

The regional court postponed the hearing due to the fact that the defendant was unable to find a translator from Danish. Date of the new meeting has not been announced.

June 10, "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" reported that the Oryol Regional Court reportedly upheld a lower court decision of the court on the content of Christensen's custody. This information does not correspond to reality, since the hearing did not take place.

Dennis Christensen was arrested May 25, 2017 during a joint study of the Bible with their co-religionists. The meek, peaceful man faces up to 10 years in prison on charges of "organizing an extremist organization."
