Russia, the Africa of the North
Cameroon, Ethiopia, Congo and Russia. What do these four nations have in common?
They are part of a group of six nations, which also includes Vietnam and Peru, that currently, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, have at least two journalists each in prison because of their writing alone.
Only eight countries on the entire planet have more incarcerated journalists according to CPJ. Russia, it seems, is the Africa of the North.
The two journalists currently being persecuted by the Kremlin are Anatoly Sardayev, editor of Mordoviya Segodnya and Boris Stomakhin, editor of Radikalnaya Politika.
