    Now Mormons are increasingly in the frame.

    In The Russian Federation separation of 'church' and state is taken seriously.

    I clicked on that link and didn't find anything about Jehovah's Witnesses -- just some stuff about bread and other local stuff.

    One problem with providing a link to a newspaper is that if the newspaper changes the story on the link it no longer makes sense. Here's a link to TASS http://tass.com/world/942396

    The article says the JW were extremists but did not say why. I wish they would have clarified that.

    According to this article, they were banned because of their beliefs of not seeking medical assistance and for having "subversive" literature, "ruining families", "promoting religious discord" and other charges.
