A journalist burned herself in protest in Russia, her apartment was previously searched by the police – ČT24 – Czech Television

“They took what they found, all the flashlights, my laptop, my daughter’s laptop, the computer, the phones, not only mine, but also my husband’s, a few notebooks I wrote to during the press conferences. I was left without resources, “she said, according to the koza.press website. It is a regional news server, which presents itself by bringing uncensored news from the Nizhny Novgorod region.

The Committee of Inquiry of the Russian Federation first stated that it had launched a preliminary investigation into the case of the burned woman in Nizhny Novgorod. According to Reuters, his regional branch later said that Slavin’s death had nothing to do with an earlier search of her apartment. According to him, she was only a witness in the case, due to which the security forces carried out inspections of the apartments on Thursday.

Relationship with Open Russia?

The BBC server noted that the police searched a total of seven apartments in Nizhny Novgorod, probably in connection with Open Russia. According to him, it seems that the tours are related to the case of a local businessman who provided Russian opposition groups with premises for various forums and other activities. According to Radio Free Europe, the Russian authorities consider Open Russia to be a so-called undesirable organization and repeatedly focus on its leadership.

Some representatives of the Russian opposition have already responded to Slavin’s death, according to which she has been under pressure from the authorities for some time. “In recent years, local security forces have exposed her to endless persecution for her opposition activities,” opposition politician Dmitry Gudkov responded to his Instagram.

“It’s a nightmare. She died on the spot. All those cases where the police have fun, a show of men in masks, this is not a game. The government is really destroying the human psyche, “wrote another opposition Ilya Yashin on Twitter.
