Russia’s Finnish Friends Threatening a Human Rights Activist
Juha Molari, a Finnish pastor, continues his provocative actions against a well-known Finnish human rights defender and Chechen refugees in Finland.
Juha Molari declared that his organization “Safka” was going to attack the office of the Finnish businessman and human rights activist Mikael Storsjo in Helsinki, on Friday evening, October 22, which, according to the pastor, is in fact the “editorial office of the Kavkaz Center”, over which, according to the pastor, a flag of the CRI should flutter. The pastor has also pointed out that the “office of the Kavkaz Center in Helsinki” is supported by MEP Heidi Hautala and a Russian opposition leader Garry Kasparov.
But their provocation attempt failed. When Juha Molari and his friends arrived in front of Mr. Storsjo’s office, they noticed that a group of Chechen refugees were there filming the scene. Needless to say, Molari and his friends left immediately.
We must remind you that earlier Chechen refugees in Finland had appealed to the Finnish Ombudsman in regard to Juha Molari’s hateful and fabricated claims about them.
It is to be recalled that almost all members of the “Safka” group have been denied entry to Estonia by police on suspicion of terrorist activities in favor of KGB and Russian interests.
To our knowledge, Mikael Storsjo is a law-abiding citizen of Finland and also very active in the human rights issues in the North Caucasus. It must be taken into consideration that the Russian Federation thinks human rights defenders are enemies of their state politics, because they expose Russia’s war crimes and crimes against humanity in the North Caucasus. The Russian Federation eliminates these defenders via its secret services, not just in Russian territory and the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, but also abroad.
We, Waynakh Online, believe that Juha Molari’s actions are very dangerous and create a real threat against Mr. Storsjo’s life; thus we urge the Finnish authorities to take the necessary measures against pastor Juha Molari and his friends.
