The Estonian Interior Ministry has banned two Russian state TV journalists from entering the Schengen zone for five years over their reports "ridiculing a religious organisation and inciting hatred towards it". 

 

It looks like the world is beginning to wake up to the anti-JW propaganda in Russia.

Thank you for the insightful news article. Quite amazed that some official authority still considers freedom of religion to such a degree! Looks like these individuals went to Russian-language meetings in Finland and Estonia and used a hidden camera for their footage?

 

Pretty radical move by the Estonian authorities, which if true, means that these journalists can't enter ANY Schengen country--meaning most of Europe! Then again, considering the hostility toward Russia in some of the former Soviet countries; many wanting desperately to be part of the West, as in European Union, NATO etc., I don't wonder that this happened in a country such as Estonia.

Yes, they went to a congregation in Estonia and used a hidden camera. I think they then used it in their TV reports twisting the facts and ridiculing our brothers.

 

I have seen Russian state TV reports about us. They are unbelievably full of lies. I was, in fact, thinking of translating two or three and posting them here for brothers to see. The propaganda is just jaw dropping.
