(Forum 18) – Local religious believers in Sakhalin region sometimes face state restrictions on sharing their faith, Forum 18 News Service has found. Pentecostals have been banned from showing the ‘Jesus Film’, and have also encountered local state bans on open-air evangelism, whilst the Jehovah’s Witnesses have faced obstacles in distributing their literature. One official told Forum 18 that unregistered religious groups “can meet in private flats but not attract other people or disturb those around them.”
