Russian security services had Russian Jewish leader Vladimir Goussinsky arrested because of their failure to “make a fully controlled puppet out of the Jewish community in Russia,” said several Russian Jewish groups. They also said that if Goussinsky is not released, they will call for large public demonstrations. Meanwhile, several U.S. lawmakers plan to introduce a resolution calling for an end to Russian government intimidation of the media.
