Russian police abruptly dropped drugs charges on Tuesday against journalist Ivan Golunov, a rare U-turn by the authorities in the face of anger from his supporters who had alleged he was framed for his reporting and had threatened to stage a mass protest in Moscow.

That must mean that they just confirmed that it was a setup form start.

case dropped (not closed) due to "lack of evidence" is a Damocles sword

   Planting drugs is the oldest trick in the book used by Russian police and so called security officers, Putin has benefited from such tactics over the years, hence his wealth.

Good to see the russian press and journalists standing up for an obviously 'kippered' member - who dared to tell the truth.

 

I apologise for going a bit off-topic, but it would be nice if the Western press behaved the same way.....

The russian press and journalists 'threw a wobbly' when Gulanov was arrested to 'shut him up'.

 

You don't think they'd throw even more of a wobbly if he was poisoned?

What if he simply disappears?

after the hype is over, upon discovery of "new" circumstances or "new" evidence, the case can be reopened with the stroke of a pen, and let's just hope for this journalist that such does not happen. ( appreciate your looking up about the sword 😉 )

As for confirming the truth, not rare that government agencies in their position high above the crowd use tricks, even the US has reportedly some examples unfortunately p.e. in the fight against drugs ( have you seen White Boy Rick? ), but very rare that such are admitted.

So who has the freer press? Russia who released this guy or the UK  and the USA who are persecuting Assange.
