Russian Supreme Court bans Jehovah’s Witnesses branch

Russia’s Supreme Court on Thursday banned the Jehovah’s Witnesses of Belgorod as extremist organization.

In February 2016, the Belgorod Regional Court has granted a lawsuit lodged by prosecutors seeking liquidation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses branch. The organization appealed the ruling. The Supreme Court thus upheld the lower court’s decision.

Jehovah’s Witnesses have had many legal problems in Russia.
