A Russian jailed for publishing an anti-Semitic newspaper is continuing his hate speech from behind bars.
Igor Kolodezenko was transferred to another prison because of his “active political agitation among the prisoners,” according to a Friday report by the Russian Jewish Web site Jewish.ru.
Kolodezenko was jailed for violating Russia’s hate speech laws after repeatedly publishing calls to murder Jews in his newspaper.
After several slaps on the wrist and suspended sentences, Kolodezenko was sentenced to nearly three years by a local Novosibirsk court last June.
