The investigator forbade the arrested oppositionist Vladimir Kara-Murza , who is in the pre-trial detention center, to speak on the phone with his children. This was reported on the politician’s twitter.
As stated in the document, my telephone conversations with children “in the opinion of the investigator may create a real threat to the proper conduct of criminal proceedings, as well as otherwise interfere with the proceedings.”
The English-language message on behalf of the politician emphasizes that he has not heard the voices of his children since his arrest in April.
Nothing new or surprising: so, one more small touch to the portrait of the authorities, who love to talk about “family values”. Our children didn’t experience anything: two poisonings of their father, the murder of a godfather (my youngest daughter is the goddaughter of Boris Nemtsov), now this.
I’m sure they’ll survive and get through it. Such is the “hardening” of the family of a Russian opposition politician at the end of the first quarter of the 21st century. Like my grandmother – “daughter of an enemy of the people” – in the late 1930s
Our duty is to make sure that their generation is the last one to undergo such “hardening”.
Vladimir Kara-Murza was arrested in April in the case of “fakes” about the Russian army. In July , it became known that a case had been opened against him under the article on the activities of an “undesirable” organization. In October , information appeared about a third criminal case – treason. According to the lawyer, he was aroused because of public speeches criticizing the Russian authorities. The politician faces up to 20 years in prison.
Poisoned twice, each doctor that saved him was murdered. He fled to America and was a frequent guest on Brian Whitmore’s show.
Foolishly he returned and his life is again in terrible danger, at a time when he should be running his country and lifting it out of the cauldron of devilry. Tragic for the world.
