Scientologists prosecuted in Russia for hatemongering

A branch of the Church of Scientology in Russia has been accused of inciting hatred and humiliating human dignity.

A criminal investigation into the activities of the church has been launched.

The center located in the city of Shchelkovo near Moscow has been searched by the police, a source told Interfax news agency.

They have confiscated materials from the scientologists’ office. Some of the documents have been deemed extremist by specialists in linguistics.
