No grounds so far to reconsider stance on Jehovah's Witnesses - Russian Justice Ministry

Moscow, February 14, Interfax - There are no grounds so far to reconsider Russia's stance on Jehovah's Witnesses, which has been branded as an extremist organization, according to Russian Deputy Justice Minister and Representative to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) Mikhail Galperin.

"The stance conveyed to the ECHR is based on current laws and practice of Russian courts, including the Supreme Court, so nothing is changed for now," Galperin told the press on Thursday in response to a question from Interfax.
