Russian man will possibly be sentenced to prison because he wrote “there is no God”


“If convicted, Krasnov faces up to a year in prison or a fine of 300,000 rubles ($4,065). Before being himself accused, he has received threats from Orthodox Christians, who said they would “do all sorts of bad things” to him and his family. They even considered him an extremist. “I did not intend to insult anyone, speaking my mind not in a church or any sort of religious community, but in an amusing community, where religious questions are never discussed,” Krasnov declaed to the media. Amnesty International has criticized Article 148 for showing “the shrinking space for freedom of expression in Russia.”
