fathom that the Russian government...ruled by

Vladimir Putin...has literally stolen all our

Quote from article:

Will the Witnesses be subjected to more aggressive searches of their homes?

Will they be brought up on administrative or criminal charges merely for possessing their own copy of the New World Translation?

It remains to be seen how the Russian authorities will use this decision as yet another weapon to repress the Witnesses’ religious freedom.
