    I can't really give 2 farts what happens to JWs in Russia. - Brokeback Mountain

    Just shows how deranged our minds can be.

    If one of those 7 Russian JW's comes to this site, do you realize what your statements would mean for him? Is this the way you reach out to JW's to help them learn the truth about JW's? You wish those JW's in Russia should leave their religion but at the same time wish they be tortured till the time they remain JW's.

    I hope both of you have a happy life and nothing untoward happen to you.

    I think some people really show up how bitter and pathetic they are from these comments.

    Anyone wishing harm and torture on people simply by virtue of them being JWs is pathetic.

    These JW tortures might sound shocking at a first glance - but would you be surprised if something similar happened in, let's say, Saudi Arabia?

    The key point here is to understand the current level of craziness happening on the territory of a "gas station masquerading as a country". Violence is something common to people living there. They teach their little kids to kill/die since early years in the kindergarden. Even the USSR has not been that crazy - at least, in its later years.

    Guess who are they getting ready to kill in the next decade or two?

    JWs' sad story is just one of the millions others.

    So how do all the bleeding hearts for JWs persecuted in a Russia feel about the USA's CIA torturing or enhanced interrogation techniques, used on suspects at Guantanamo Bay? Personally I feel about the same way the only difference is I'm from the US, and they were probably captured not in the US and were brought to Cuba were they could be tortured and not violate any US laws.

    Good lord.

    I can't even come up with enough adjectives for this thread - sad, revolting, repulsive, horrifying...

    I feel like I want to take a shower after reading some of these comments.

    Can I retire from the human race? Any alien civilizations out there like to adopt me?

    You would think the real torture is just attending the meeting.

    Seven named individuals and their lawyer, all living in Russia, have filed official complaints against named officers. One of the victims has given an interview to a media outlet. You can also read one of the victims' written testimonies (published by prominent human rights defender Lev Ponomaryov) and decide for yourself whether it's credible: https://www2.stetson.edu/~psteeves/relnews/190220b.html

    [Note: lawyer Fomina is a "public defender" appointed by the prosecution side; read more on the issue here: https://meduza.io/en/feature/2016/01/26/an-indefensible-public-defender-system ]

    For all those here who support Russia's ban on JW's: Do you really feel that the individual rank and file deserve the above treatment? Do you honestly feel that this is the way to stop JW's?

    This comment/question makes it sound as if torture and a ban are one-in-the-same. They are two separate actions and issues.

    While noncompliance to any ban in most countries will usually result in legal penalties, the torturous treatment depicted on the 'JWs in Russia' website appears to be done outside of Russian law.

    The article states: 'The Witnesses will pursue all available legal remedies for this crime ...'

    Does this mean WT is pursuing legal remedies on behalf of those tortured and for all JWs in Russia, or are the Witness individuals that were tortured, acting only for themselves?

    Has anyone found any information other than from the 'JWs in Russia' website and other JW and religion associated sites that confirm this story?
