‘Youngest’ Person Added to Russian Terror List – Reports

Pyotr Kovalev / TASS

Russian authorities have added a 14-year-old teen to its list of “terrorists and extremists,” independent media reported Friday.

Gleb Sinitsyn is the youngest defendant to appear on the state financial watchdog Rosfinmonitoring’s list, according to the news website Sota.

Sinitsyn is listed as a native of the central Russian city of Ivanovo and was born on July 16, 2009.

Rosfinmonitoring did not specify the reason for Sinitsyn’s inclusion on its list. It was not immediately clear what charges the teenager faces or when he was arrested.

Being added to Russia’s list of “extremists and terrorists” allows the authorities to freeze designees’ bank accounts without a court order.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
