American Journalist Has Been ARRESTED By Russian Authorities…

A Wall Street Journal reporter was reportedly detained in Russia on suspicion of espionage.

According to reports, Evan Gershkovich was detained by Russian authorities in Yekaterinburg, on the eastern side of the Ural Mountains, on suspicion of “espionage in the interests of the American government.”

“The Russian Federation’s Federal Security Service has halted the illegal activities of US citizen Evan Gershkovich, born in 1991, a correspondent of the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal’s Moscow bureau,” Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB, said in a statement.



NBC News reported:

The FSB accused Gershkovich of collecting “information constituting a state secret about the activities of one of the enterprises of the Russian military-industrial complex.”

It provided no evidence or further details on when Gershkovich was arrested. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison.

Kremlin spokesman Dimtry Peskov told a news briefing that Gershkovich had been “caught red handed.”

“We are not talking about suspicions, but about the fact that he was detained red-handed,” Peskov said, adding that the arrest was up to the FSB.

The Wall Street Journal said in a statement that it “vehemently denies the allegations from the FSB and seeks the immediate release of our trusted and dedicated reporter.” It added: “We stand in solidarity with Evan and his family.”

NBC News has reached out to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow for comment. U.S. officials have been in touch with The Wall Street Journal about the situation, a senior Biden administration official told NBC News.

Gershkovich reportedly traveled to Yekaterinburg to write about the Wagner private military company, according to the Daily Mail.

From the Daily Mail:

Russian reports suggest he had gone to Yekaterinburg to write about the attitude of people to the war unleashed by Putin in Ukraine, and the recruitment of locals for the Wagner private military company.

There was concern for Gershkovich when he failed to make contact with his editorial office.

Russian independent journalist Dmitry Kolezev said he had spoken to Gershkovich before he went to Yekaterinburg and warned him that he would be ‘100% monitored’ from the moment he arrived.

Kolezev said: ‘He understood this well, but he was sure that since he was not doing anything illegal, everything would be limited to ordinary surveillance and, perhaps, some kind of intimidation.

‘It turned out much worse.’

He insisted: ‘Evan is a very brave guy, a good journalist, not a spy at all.’

It is unclear why Gershkovich was detained but Kolezev said he had intended to try and speak to workers outside a tank plant in Nizhny Tagil or the Novator Design Bureau in Yekaterinburg – a manufacturer of long-range anti-aircraft missiles.

‘Both enterprises are easily located on any public map, their location is not a secret,’ said Kolezev.

He added: ‘It seemed to me not only dangerous, but also unpromising, because it is unlikely that anyone will talk to an American in the current situation.

‘Evan has good Russian, but the American is easily guessed in him.

‘I do not know in the end whether he realized this idea, but for sure the very fact of the appearance of an American citizen, not far from the place where tanks or missiles are made, the FSB today considers espionage.’

But he said: ‘In any case, the plot of the case does not really matter – he was taken as a hostage for an exchange, and in fact it does not matter at all what they formally [accuse him of doing].

‘The decision on his fate will be made not in court and not during the investigation, but at negotiations between Russia and the United States.’

Gershkovich has lived in Moscow for six years, working as a journalist.

He is a US citizen born to parents from the Soviet Union.


Ok, I do not mean to switch topics too much but if you haven’t noticed—there is a highly woke agenda being promoted everywhere.

This woke agenda is being promoted not only on television but also in movies. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Even the stores that we shop at are funding the very liberal, commie, woke agendas that we are doing our best to rail against.

So, there here are the three questions to ask before you shop:
What agendas, if any, is this company funding?
What narratives are being pushed by this company?
Do I trust that the products I’m buying are safe?
These corporate conglomerates have brainwashed us into thinking their products are the only products. And if they’re budget-friendly they must be all we can get. This is categorically untrue.
There are safer, more affordable alternatives out there 😉

We need to stop funding these woke companies and I have an amazing alternative for you.

The only “catch”?

It’s only by referral.

Good thing you know someone that can refer you and that is me.

So, click this link and I can send you some information on shopping with an American-made, patriot-owned store that also has grass-fed beef.s

No antibiotics, steroids, or junk either.

It is time that we start supporting American companies and stop feeding the globalist woke agenda >>>https://tinyurl.com/23ctzwky
