#Russia: Today, the Basmanny District Court in #Moscow extended home detention for four editors of the independent student-run magazine #DOXA until September 14, @mediazzzona reports.


#DOXA’s editors Aramyan, Tyshkevich, Metelkin, and Gutnikova have been under home detention since mid-April; they are only allowed to leave house for 2 hours per day, and are banned from using the internet or other communication tools.


#Russian authorities should immediately drop all the charges against the #DOXA editors, return their equipment, and let them do their jobs covering important political events in the country without fear,” @gulnozas


“It’s apt, but sad, that student #journalism in today’s Russia must include a lesson in just how afraid Vladimir Putin’s government is of independent news coverage,” @gulnozas

#Russia: Last week, independent news website VTimes announced that it would shut down on June 12, stating that its business model was being “destroyed” by its designation as foreign agent by the Russian Justice ministry, @MoscowTimes reports.

On May 14, #Russian Justice Ministry added Stichting 2 Oktober, a Dutch journalism nonprofit administering the independent news website VTimes, to its list of foreign agents.


"Russian authorities should cease fining and harassing news outlets for alleged violations of its foreign agents law… websites such as VTimes should not be forced to jump through hoops and risk large fines due to their ownership structures,” @gulnozas

Exiled #Azerbaijani blogger Mahammad Mirzali, who survived a knife attack in March, has reported on receiving new threats after calling for peace between Armenia and Azerbaijan in an interview to Armenian broadcaster @CivilNetTV, reports @RFERL:

Mirzali, who runs a video blog critical of the Azerbaijani authorities, was stabbed at least 16 times on March 14 by a group of unidentified men in downtown Nantes, France, where he lives in exile. He received multiple wounds but survived the attack:

"French authorities must ensure that Mirzali and other exiled bloggers and journalists can exercise their right of free expression without having to fear for their lives,” @gulnozas
