Two Jehovah's Witnesses Arrested for Taking a Walk

8 September 2017

 

On September 6, 2017 in the Khosta district of Sochi, police detained two Jehovah's Witnesses, 16-year-old AY and 32-year-old Sergei Isaev, during a walk. After many hours of interrogation by the FSB, Sergei Isaev was arrested for 10 days on false charges of disobeying the police.

The casual passer-by recognized in the men of Jehovah's Witnesses and, noticing the policemen and the Cossack patrol, informed them that Jehovah's Witnesses were walking along the alley, "which are forbidden." The police and the Cossacks escorted the faithful to the police station, where they, including a minor, were interrogated until late at night. After midnight, Sergei Isaev was taken to the Sochi department of the FSB. Later it became known that Sergei was accused of insubordination by policemen. Allegedly, he "refused to sit in the car," although there was no car at all!

It is noteworthy that a few hours before the detention in the Khosta district of Sochi, policemen bypassed the homes of local Jehovah's Witnesses, trying to find out whether their co-religionists came to visit them, and whether there were foreigners among them.

 

 

A "casual passer-by" recognized them as a JW, eh?  So again, the question begs: What does one of Jehovah's Witnesses look like?

They look like the people that knocked on his door, they look like the people that were standing by the cart, they look like the people that helped their neighbors.  I'm not surprised they would be recognized,....if that's what really happened. ...

It's obvious what their true intentions are. Every time I read another report about our brothers in Russia, I just shake my head at how ridiculously desperate our opposers are. They'll be in for a shock soon. 

Before you know it, the Russian Orthodox Church will be on trial for some corruption and everything will come together against them. I can sense something will happen. Just keep waiting.

In Sochi, believer is released after more than 8 days of arrest

18 September 2017

 

On the night of September 15, 2017, a believer, illegally arrested on false charges of disobeying police officers, returned to his wife and two children.

32-year-old Sergei Isaev was detained by a Cossack patrol and police officers on a street in the resort town, at the direction of a casual passer-by, who recognized him as a follower of the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses. The passer-by reminded law enforcement that Jehovah's Witnesses are "prohibited". The believer was escorted to the police station, where he was interrogated by FSB officers, and was later arrested on groundless charges of "disobeying police officers".
 

 

He has such a nice face.  My prayers continue there for our family.

The next day, 16-year-old Arseny, as well as his mother, were summoned to the FSB. Threatening with criminal prosecution and sanctions to himself, as well as his mother, the FSB major, Mutsko, demanded that Arseny sign the prepared testimony against Isayev. Despite the colossal pressure, Arseny firmly refused to sign anything.

 

"Despite the colossal pressure" our fine young 16-yr-old brother remained loyal. What an example of faith!

May Jehovah continue to support and richly bless him and all our dear brothers and sisters in Russia!

In the Irkutsk region vandalism against the building of Jehovah's Witnesses

20/092017

 

September 16, 2017 in the village Chunsky (Irkutsk region.) Unknown entered the building on the street. The world where the worship services of Jehovah's Witnesses were held earlier, they cut internal doors, broke down sound reinforcement equipment, damaged the burglar alarm, and also sprayed powder fire extinguishers around the hall. On the fact of hooliganism, a statement was filed with the police.

 

The building is in no way used after the decision of the Supreme Court, which banned the activities of registered organizations of Jehovah's Witnesses. The decision is appealed to the Presidium of the Supreme Court of Russia. Believers do not doubt that these and other barbarous acts were provoked by an unjustified court decision against Jehovah's Witnesses.

These attacks just make so sad. Just think, we're held to be as "extremist" as followers of radical Islam, etc., but have you ever heard of random attacks against people because the "look" like they are part of any of the real extremist organizations? Of course not, they would defend themselves! Our poor brothers and sisters are easy targets (they think).
