Russian opposition leader against tyranny of the Putin regime Alexey Navalny is being held in detention center-3 in Kolchugino in the Vladimir region east of Moscow. Navalny's wife, Yulia, was taken into custody for taking part in demonstrations. Police have detained over 5,100 people and deployed unprecedented security measures to curb the protests.
In Belarus, two opposition leaders were arrested Tuesday and ordered jailed for 10 days, as President Alexander Lukashenko continues to violently crack down on anti-government protesters.
A court in Belarus handed two local journalists two-year prison sentences for their live coverage of an anti-government rally in the capital Minsk late last year. Belarusian authorities have launched a series of criminal investigations targeting opposition activists and journalists following the months-long protests over Lukashenko's claimed landslide victory in an August presidential election. The official election results were condemned by many in Belarus and the West as a mockery of democracy.
On the courthouse steps, pro-democracy leader Joshua Wong faced the cameras alongside Agnes Chow, who was also arrested earlier in the day for charges relating to a protest on June 21. Wong said: "We (are) strongly aware of how President Xi Jinping and the Beijing government are the ones who back and endorse the Hong Kong police to conduct such a mass arrest and prosecution.
Many of those arrested were accused of posting unfounded claims promoted by Trump that the election had been stolen or that widespread voter fraud contributed to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. The facts that many news outlets will not report, is that there was widespread voter fraud tied to vote counting of regular ballots and mail-in ballots, that there were votes counted that were completed preprinted ballots, that voter machines were manipulated to switch or even create additional votes, and that in at least six states the voter fraud greatly exceeded the vote difference. The evidence that the election was stolen is overwhelming. Where an investigation has been conducted, the evidence overwhelmingly supports that the election was stolen. Those who claim otherwise do so, not based on investigations or facts, but based on innuendo and declaration.
Judges are holding these so-called insurrectionists in jail indefinitely, denying them release. These are clearly political prisoners. These so-called rioters are treated differently form rioters who attacked, burned, and otherwise destroyed government property in many cities across the United States. Yes, there is overwhelming evidence the election was stolen, Yes, there is irrefutable evidence the FBI and the DOJ apply different standards, based entirely on politics.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
