Arrest warrants issued for Editor IStories Anin

Russia’s Interior Ministry has issued an arrest warrant for Roman Anin, the editor-in-chief of the investigative news outlet IStories, Mediazona reported on Monday.

Anin, a former correspondent for Novaya Gazeta, appears in the law enforcement body’s online database of wanted persons, although the listing does not specify any charges against him.

Mediazona stated it was unaware of any criminal case against Anin. In 2021, Russian authorities designated Anin and several other IStories journalists as “foreign agents.”

On the same day, Yekaterina Fomina, a journalist at TV Rain and former IStories correspondent, was also placed on the Interior Ministry’s wanted list.

Authorities opened a criminal case against her for allegedly disseminating “false information” about Russia’s armed forces, as reported by the state-run TASS news agency in January.

The case was initiated after Fomina interviewed a Russian soldier who admitted to killing a civilian in the Ukrainian village of Andriivka.

Both IStories and TV Rain have been labeled “undesirable organizations” by the Russian government, effectively banning anyone within the country from working for them.
