Russia’s Supreme Court on Thursday issued a ruling banning Jehovah’sWitnesses after the justice ministry called on it to dissolve the “extremist organisation”.

Supreme Court judge Yury Ivanenko said Russia had decided to close down “the administrative centre of Jehovah’s Witnesses and the local organisations in its fold and turn their property over to the Russian Federation.”

The decision comes after the ministry said it had found signs of “extremist activity” within the organisation and requested that it be banned. What signs?

“I’m shocked,” Yaroslav Sivulsky, who represents the group’s administrative centre, told reporters.
