There are an estimated 175,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia. They are not recognized as Christian by Orthodox and other Christian traditions, primarily because they do not believe in the Trinity. They also do not salute the flag, bear arms or participate in politics. More than 170 Jehovah’s Witnesses have reportedly been imprisoned or put in pre-trial detention in Russia since 2017 for practising their faith. That’s when the Russian Supreme Court labelled Jehovah’s Witnesses an “extremist” group. Witnesses are a religious minority in the country, where the Russian Orthodox Church has the backing of the state. Recently a Russian court has handed the country’s longest prison sentence yet to a Jehovah’s Witness. Buy My Book: Losing The Faith Buy My Book: Cults: How They Work #JehovahsWitnesses #Russia #Cult
