In Moscow at the building of the presidential administration of Russia held pickets in defense of the correspondent of "Novaya Gazeta" Ali Feruza, which the court ordered that he be deported to Uzbekistan. Police detained four activists. In defense of Feruz was made by the international human rights organization "reporters without borders", Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Advocates argue that in Uzbekistan the journalist can wait torture. As reported by "Open Russia" chief editor of "Novaya Gazeta" Dmitry Muratov, now the editors talks about the possibility to take Feruza in one of the countries of the European Union – to do this he needs a passport of the red cross. The Council on human rights, the expulsion Feruza called a violation of the Russian Constitution. The Kremlin stated that the authorities cannot "close their eyes" to a journalist allegedly committed immigration law violations.
