Jehovah’s Witnesses to appeal in European court after Russia upholds ban

The Jehovah’s Witnesses has vowed to appeal against Russia’s ban on its activities at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg after the country’s Supreme Court upheld a previous ruling which branded it an “extremist” organization.

“We plan to appeal this at the European Court of Human Rights as soon as we can,” a member of the European Association of Jehovah’s Christian Witnesses, Yaroslav Sivulskiy, said over the phone. “All legal avenues inside Russia have been exhausted.”
