CHILLING: Russia is run by criminals

What has Russia become?

Its treatment of whistleblower lawyer Sergei Magnitsky reveals a lot about how powerful organised criminal elements in Russia are. He revealed a multi-million dollar elaborate tax scam and was charged with offences as if he’d perpetrated the scam.

He died in prison because he wasn’t given proper medical attention.

In a bizarre move calculated to spin their way out of a scandal that’s attracted global condemnation, Russian authorities are proceeding with his criminal trial anyway, even though he’s dead.
