European Freedom Of Speech: Pro-Russian Blogger Arrested In Latvia

Click to see full-size image

In the countries of the European Union, they always openly declare that they oppose the violation of human rights and freedoms violated in any other country. Europeans are proud to live in countries where everyone can openly express their opinion.

However, there was one small country in the European Union whose authorities shout about a free Europe to the whole world, but in reality they grossly violate the rights and freedoms of their citizens. This country is Latvia. Latvian laws and the Constitution strictly enshrine the right to freedom of speech and independence of the media, but despite this they are not respected by the authorities.

Here is one of the egregious examples of violations of human rights and freedoms.

On March 17, 2022, blogger Kirill Fedorov was arrested in his apartment in Riga. He openly expressed his political position, which was contrary to the position of the authorities. Special forces soldiers arrived to detain the blogger. During the arrest, Fedorov did not offer any resistance, however, a noise similar to beating and torture could be heard from the apartment. According to the blogger’s neighbors, an ambulance arrived at the house shortly after. No one had any doubts that physical force was used against the blogger.

Kirill Fedorov was interrogated at the police station. The interrogation was conducted using methods prohibited by the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. An officer of this police station told about this on the rights of anonymity. Additionally, he pointed out that not all of his colleagues agree with such measures, but all are intimidated and forced to remain silent.

Fedorov’s interrogation lasted more than a day, after which he was charged with seven different crimes. The court sent him to the Riga Central Prison. Fedorov was placed in the same cell with the killer, who had previously beaten another cellmate to death. Later, an attack was made on Fedorov himself, who miraculously survived.

While Kirill Fedorov is under arrest, his YouTube channel, which has several hundred thousand subscribers, was blocked. Later, Kirill’s phone was hacked and as a result, the Telegram channel “War, History, Weapons” was stolen. On his channels, Fedorov openly expressed his disagreement with the actions of the authorities, did not condemn and supported the Russian Federation for the ongoing special operation in Ukraine.

Now it is possible to contact the blogger with the help of letters in which he calls himself a political prisoner blogger.

From a letter from Kirill Fedorov dated 08.06.2022: “… during this time I had time to survive torture, threats, physical and psychological impact, deception and a lot of things that are simply impossible in Europe. Unfortunately, the press is silent and the media work for the state. I still don’t know, after 3(!) months, where, when and what exactly I did or said… I don’t hear the media condemning the electric shock therapy applied to me. Although it can’t be in Europe in the 21st century, can it? … There are only criminals, liars and scoundrels around. I’m holding on. I want and will live…”

Watching what is happening, one gets the impression that the main goal of the Latvian authorities is to silence Kirill Fyodorov, because the truthful and unbiased information that he shared with his viewers and readers simply did not coincide with the position of the authorities.

I would say that the Latvian authorities fully intended for Kirill to die. This will be a regular thing under the NWO junta. When and if this does happen to someone, i hope the police officers who delivered the victim can sleep with the guilt. Just following orders wasn’t a good enough excuse to escape a Nuremberg trail, it shouldn’t be good enough now.

Those who work in the police force should ask themselves, just who are they protecting and serving?

@Peter

I feel it hypocrite, what SF does. Complaining about no freedom of speech in the west, when in fact they themselves (SF) are deleting all posts which reveal critics of the russian politics or bring none-positive news regarding the progress of the russian invasion to the attention of the audience here. To inform people here about the truth, we need to see infos and news from all sides not only the russian one. For example:

Rushists are looking for places in Melitopol to store the bodies of the killed occupiers.

The occupation administration of Melitopol is urgently looking for additional freezers and industrial refrigerators. It is known that the city meat-packing plant, which was converted into a morgue, is already completely filled with the bodies of the killed occupiers and can no longer accept “cargo 200”.

In particular, on June 6, the russian military arrived at Aron-M LLC (370 Litonosova Street, Melitopol) and examined its refrigeration chambers. The equipment was found suitable for conversion into a morgue. The company’s management was informed about “the decision to temporarily use them free of charge for the preservation of the bodies of fallen servicemen.” It is noted that the corpses of rushists who died during the fighting in the direction of Pologa – Gulyaypole are currently being actively imported to Melitopol.

These events are associated with heavy losses of the occupiers in manpower. In addition, the long-term storage of the bodies of those killed is connected with the intentions of the russian leadership to hide the real scale of losses from the Russian electorate. Therefore, the so-called “dosed” sending of bodies to the russian federation and the maximum delaying of this process is practiced

News: Stupidity of TikTokers: Posted location

The Wagner PMC base in Kadiivka was destroyed thanks to a video from TikTok, according to CIT investigators.

According to investigator Kirill Mikhailov, the russian command is trying to hide the fact of the death of russian mercenaries at the base in Kadiivka. At least 40 wagnerians and russian soldiers were killed there https://bit.ly/3Hu3xRn

This website may censor, but at least they don’t come and arrest you and take you to prison. BTW, I noticed the other day it was captcha that censored me, not SF. I tried about ten times to post a comment that praised an SF article, using different wordings, and captcha would not let it through. When I finally deleted the words “Great article”, captcha approved it. WHO RUNS KAPCHA? And what kind of AI does it use? Apparently, its owners were scared of that article. (I noticed no other comments praised it. Hm.)

Captcha is by Google, not SF. Google loves gaslighting and maximizing your attention wasting for parasitic purposes. Of course if you use degenerate libtard or woke imbecile wording, out of sudden you have no problems.

It can be the censorship, but can be simply stupid realization of algorithms, because i can see no political reason in you (and several mine) case. Type any short abracadabra then edit it and write your thoughts to avoid this crap.

@Karl Pomeroy & AHTOH

Nah ? You should not defend banning of freedom of speech. One day it will come back on you like a boomerang, believe me. Karma is a bitch ! Btw. am not talking about captcha hindering me or anyone else from posting. I am talking about comments already published, with people like you answering, and then 2 hours later the initial post ist gone. That’s definitely deleting done by SF. It’s a shame, and proves everything the russia-critics here stated as true.

The quality of this website has decreased 80% minimum within the last 2-3 week, when SF started censoring, banning and deleting all post which were not pro-russian, not hurraying Putins illegal war of aggression !

Before we had lots of intelligent people here, posting different opinions, discussing them, arguing with other etc. This way the truth came out more and more. And lots of people here, pro-Putin and contra Putin came to the conclussion that this whole war and global problems are merely due to Jews controlling both sides USA and EU and Ukraine (Zelensky jew) and Russia and China. With this the people hit the nail on the head. And because more and more people here realized that, the jewish-russian masters of this website started banning everything not in line with the judeo-russian Putin-war propaganda. Thus confirming what the clever people here had found out and posted, resp. that it is all jewish initiated slaughterhouse.

Realize: Whoever bans freedom of speech is an enemy of mankind and a worshipper of Satan, and thus an enemy of God !

Latvian Nazis are pigs and cowards. They are too frightened to fight Russian soldiers in the Donbass, so instead they beat up on Russian civilians in Riga.

I guess the Latvians want to do just like their ancestors did, which is commit atrocities in pursuit of fascism.

The persecution of journalists is also taking place in Germany. Alina Lipp is a German journalist reporting from Dombass. She and her father have had their bankaccounts closed, and she could be facing 3 years in prison. For reporting the truth.

Totalitariatism is comming to Europe. So much for the EU being “free and democratic!

Alina Lipp, deluded young German girl, tictoc influencer, without any journalism experience, employed directly by Putin to spread Russian propaganda. Nice…

Ay!

And who are you hired by and whose propaganda are you spreading?

Антон

Udo Ulfkotte, “Gekaufe journalisten” book. “Corrupt journalists. Any truth for your money”. You can read the book or hear interviews with the author. He says amazing things about recruitment system in MSM, bribes by “non-government” euro-atlantist funds, pushing needed agenda and punishment of disobedient journalists via bribed editors. Another way of influence is to buy regional press or create regional branches and change their articles to copies of the head office. As the result, you have 200 channels/newspapers with the same news. youtube.com/watch?v=ZCTedKQb8II

The West has legitimised the persecution and dehumanization of ordinary Russians but just like their pointless and ineffectual sanctions, it will rebound on them and when this business is finally finished, the West would have become the pariah for the rest of the World and Russia will find itself surrounded by new friends, why make friends with the serpent when you can have a big powerful ally like Russia to support you?

As they say in the comments at Gateway Pundit, “Putin please save us!”

Oy!

You are right. Same way it rebounded nazis in Germany. Don’t know about the West being a pariah but for sure Russians already are…

Ay!

Does the rest of the world know that Russia is an outcast?

Doesn’t sound much worse that US treatment of Roger Stone, not to mention British detention of Julian Assange nor US persecution of J6 demonstrators. Germany even has a law on the books for fining and sentencing “hate speech”, which includes any derogatory comment about a certain group.

Latvia is begging to be invaded, that should be on Putin’s Christmas List and all those other fascist Baltic states should also disappear from the map but nothing would please me more pleasure than Poland losing half it’s territory to the Russian Federation.

Dream on. Invading Poland – in what reality do you live? During ww2 all Japanese citizens were arrested and put in camps. It will happen soon to all Russians living in the West… so why surprised that EU is taking action and arresting Russian propagandists in Latvia?

Russians are now seeing with own eyes – quality of life in countries like Poland or Czech Republic as opposed to dump in RF… and more and more says no to Putin madness… plus just wait for China to invade Russian far east…

Ay!

Latvian propagandist, these countries live so wonderfully on subsidies from the European Union, but the local population still dreams of going to Western Europe.

Антон

Indeed, so wonderful, but lost at least 25% or their population since 1991. They were growing in numbers before, and then happiness has begun: decreasing of population, end of heavy industry (built by awful russian communists), including Riga Automobile Fabrique (RAF) and electronic hardware maker “Radiotehnika” (i have their speakers and they still work), huge migration and 1/3 of population with non-citizen status, i.e without civil rights. They lost even such symbolic thing as sprats. Sprats from Pribaltica was well known and popular food throughout USSR. First factory was established in the end of 19th century, now the last factory is closed and its hardware moved to Kaliningrad region. Total decommunisation with swastikas instead.

Антон

Agree in all things except Poland. No way, we had ~40% of modern Poland in 19th century, this is was unsuccessful scientific experience. When you give civil rights to local population of this land, many of them are trying to direct their liberties against the giver. To create 2nd sort people or genocide — not our methods. So no, no need half Poland, though there are many poles who brought the glory to Russia like marshal Rokossovskiy or Igor’ Sikorskiy (russo-polish family from Kiev).
