We consider political prisoners to be individuals who are serving a prison sentence, as well as those being held in custody or under house arrest as a form of pre-trial detention. We reckon among political prisoners individuals who are being persecuted in connection with the realization of their legitimate rights as well as those who are being unlawfully or disproportionately persecuted by the authorities for political reasons. We do not regard as political prisoners those individuals who used violence against the person or called for violence on the grounds of religion, nationality, race etc. All the criteria for considering individuals as political prisoners are published on our website.

As individuals persecuted in connection with the realization of the right to freedom of religion make up more than a half of the total number of political prisoners in Russia, and as their cases of persecution have much in common, their names are compiled in a separate list. None of the individuals on the list used violence, called for violence or planned violent acts.

There are 141 names in the present list. Now, it contains almost exclusively the names of Muslims, a majority of whom have been accused of participating in the organization of Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami, as well as followers of Turkish theologian Bediüzzaman Said Nursî, who have been accused of participating in the inexistent organization of Nurdjalar. Jehovah’s Witnesses whose organizations had been groundlessly labelled extremist and banned in Russia joined the list of victims persecuted for religious reasons in 2017; followers of the Church of Scientology also accused of extremism – in 2018.

This list is far from being complete. It includes only those individuals and cases for which we have managed to collect and analyse sufficient information for a convincing conclusion to be drawn about a politically motivated and illegal nature of the criminal prosecution. At the present time the list does not contain the names of a large number of people who have been deprived of liberty, and whose prosecution contains indications of illegality or political motivation, but for whose cases we have either not yet received the required information, or have not yet fully analysed the information. The whole list of those being persecuted on similar grounds is, as a minimum, three to four times as lengthy as the present one.

The necessity to provide a propagandist justification for the actuality of the terrorist threat and the need to demonstrate results in the ‘fight against international terrorism’; the desire to suppress independent groups (not only religious ones) despite the illusiveness of their real threat to society and the corporate interests of law-enforcement bodies who strive to improve their performance on paper should be named as the main reasons for repressions against the Muslims whose names have been included on the list. Some cases, for instance, those of human rights defenders Rustem Latypov and Emir-Usein Kuku, journalist Nariman Memedeminov, and activist Linar Vakhitov, can also be prompted by the desire to discontinue their lawful activity.

We should also highlight the criminal prosecution of the residents of Crimea on charges of their membership of Hizb ut-Tahrir. It should be noted that as this organization acts legally in Ukraine, the persecution of its members in Crimea becomes another tool of pressure on the Crimean Tatars.

A few years ago, people accused of membership of Hizb ut-Tahrir that had been groundlessly recognized as a terrorist organization in Russia, were charged under an Article of the Russian Criminal Code envisaging up to 3 years of imprisonment for participation in the activities of an extremist organization. Today, the toughening of legislation and law enforcement practices has led to the situation when, in most cases, such people were charged under the new Article of the Criminal Code ‘Organization of the activities of a terrorist organization and participation in the activities of such organization’, providing for a punishment up to life imprisonment, in conjunction with charges of preparation for a violent seizure of power, an Article providing for up to 10 years in prison. Terms of imprisonment imposed by the courts have also been lengthened (up to 24 (!) years of imprisonment in a strict-regime penal colony).

We believe that the number of political prisoners on this list will surge in the near future as the persecution of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia has significantly intensified since spring 2018. All over the Russian Federation, dozens of Jehovah’s Witnesses have suffered searches and arrests; many of them have become defendants in criminal cases and placed in custody.
