Russian Citizens Face Criminal Prosecution for Their Faith

In the first case of its kind in modern Russia, 16 Jehovah’s Witnesses * in Taganrog are being criminally prosecuted merely because they meet for peaceful worship and practice their faith. * If found guilty, they could face fines of up to 300,000 rubles (10,000 USD) or imprisonment for up to eight years in some cases. The 16 Witnesses have been ordered not to leave Taganrog until the court reaches a decision.
