US slams Russia for ban on Jehovah’s Witnesses

The State Department on Wednesday slammed the Russian Supreme Court’s decision to ban Jehovah’s Witnesses from practicing in the country, which considers them an “extremist” group.

“The Russian Supreme Court’s decision this week against the Jehovah’s Witnesses is the latest in a disturbing trend of persecution of religious minorities in Russia,” said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert in a statement.
