    The jw.org is always going on about how unfair the Russian Authorities are and how brothers and sisters in Russia for this reason are persecuted .But , it could be that the Russians don't like the Watchtower because the don't like NGO's .The Watchtower has maintained it's status as NGO in Europe and the Russians don't like NGO's as they see them as Foreign Agents .The following is an extract from the recent news there :"

    MOSCOW, January 16 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Justice Minister Alexander Konovalov said on Wednesday that only one non-governmental organization in Russia has so far registered as a foreign agent under a recently introduced law on NGOs.

    Russia's controversial new law, obligating non-governmental organizations financed from abroad and involved in political activity to register as "foreign agents," came into force last November. The first organization to register under the new law last December was the "Shchit i Mech" (Shield and Sword) human rights group from the Chuvashia Republic.

    "As for requests, I have no other information besides the only association from Chuvashia, about which you already know," Konovalov told a session of the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament.

    The minister added that Russian NGOs are currently in a stage of "adjustment" to the norms of the new law, which should gradually become part of routine judicial practice.

    Alexei Glukhov, the head of "Shchit i Mech," said earlier his organization decided to register under the new legislation to find out how the new law works from the inside.

    The new legislation also requires NGOs to publish a biannual report on their activities and carry out an annual financial audit.

    Failure to comply with the law could result in fines of up to 500,000 rubles ($15,900).

    Kremlin officials have repeatedly claimed that Washington is using NGOs in Russia as a cover to bring about political change. President Vladimir Putin once famously called Russian NGOs involved in politics "jackals."

    You can find a lasting relationship, ballistic.

    Russians are paranoid. Of course, even paranoids have enemies. Plus, I dont like the JWs.

    Could be. Sounds like the russian state is against outside political influences that cause rapid change. All kinds of new media already are changing the country.

    Seriously, the british are trying to introduce trashy break down in some segments of russian society. It wouldn't surprise me at all if americans are doing the same. British society is a mess. They are good at exporting their cultural rot to other countries.

    Truth hurts, i know ballistic. Surely, you must be aware of the long, slow decline of britain from an industrial giant to a being the center (the city of london) where the high and mighty gamble, w the worlds money and resources as the chips. Meanwhile, the lower strata, many unemployed struggle on or engage in yobbery. A few people have spoken w their feet and have left england or are in the process of doing so, as we speak. What else are you suggesting?
