Russia bans Jehovah’s Witnesses as ‘extremist’

Russia has banned Jehovah’s Witnesses as an extremist organisation, placing the pacifist sect in the company of neo-Nazi and jihadi groups.

The justice ministry added the Jehovah’s Witnesses administrative centre in Russia and 395 local branches to its register of banned organisations on Thursday. Criminal charges can now be brought against believers for activities such as proselytizing or simply gathering together.
