NEWSPAPER EDITOR ON TRIAL FOR INCITING ETHNIC AND RELIGIOUS HATRED. A
preliminary hearing in the trial of the former editor of the
anti-Semitic newspaper "Pravoslavnyi Simbirsk," Sergei Seryubinym,
opened on 8 January in Ulyanovsk, RFE/RL's Ulyanovsk correspondent
reported. Seryubinym is accused of inciting national and religious
enmity. In an issue of the newspaper on 24 April 2002, Seryubinym
cautioned Russian Orthodox parents to be aware that Jews are continuing
the ancient ritual of murdering of Christian youths. The newspaper has a
print run of about 2,000 copies and is financed jointly by the eparchy
of Ulyanovsk and the oblast administration. After the 24 April issue,
Seryubinym was fired and the eparchy issued an official apology to the
local Jewish community. ("RFE/RL Newsline," 10 January)
