I think someone on Newsweek staff has some intimate connections to WT/org
I think it's a duty of the press to inform about such gross human rights violations. Especially when the "Leader of the Free World" likes Putin more than US allies.
I notice that Newsweek hasn't reported on this story:
Another ridiculous attempt to whitewash the Russian authorities' actions. They are not fastidious about any means they use against Navalny's movement. First a criminal case under far-fetched charges of "hooliganism motivated by social and political hatred to Putin and local governor", then search in the house of Zolotarevsky's mother, and illegal leaks of personal information to the government-controlled press and bloggers. In fact, the Zolotarevsky is not a Witness (he is probably a former one), and there was no religious literature found at his home. The police officers are the only criinals in this story.
This tactic is so misleading - women are being used to gain public approval for the org's actions at the same time that women are treated horribly within the org
What's misleading? Are they wives of prisoners of conscience unlawfully persecuted for their religion? Yes.
And there is no aim "to gain public approval for the org's actions" - only to defend themselves against the grave human rights violations. So, your comments are misleading, as like your continuous attempts to justify and glorify the Russian state's crimes.
