I haven't seen this confirmed anywhere else but it seems Russia just confiscated another property.

fake news?

 

Oh I checked these sources they linked.  Seems like they are reporting on old news.  However, the court documents they show are from this year.

That's the property they took last year.

It might be, but the article makes it sound otherwise. 

 

Based on official documentation dated March 1, 2019, the Russian federation has seized the Jehovah’s Witness administrative center campus worth $30.4 million US dollars. The property has been transferred to the Federal State-funded institution Almazov National Medical Research of the Ministry of Healthcare of the Russian Federation. According to a representative from JW, “the Russian government has schemed to effectively steal this property from our U.S. corp, claiming the U.S. corp’s ownership was invalid and that the property was really owned by JWs in Russia.”

 

On May 2018, the religious group also lost a $31.8 million real estate complex in Saint Petersburg, Russia. According to Newsweek, this occurred “after the city’s court upheld a lower court’s decision that the property should be seized by the government.” The ruling that allows seizure of property came a year after the Russian Government labeled the JW as “an extremist organization” while launching “an ongoing crackdown against its members.”
