Dmitry Kolezev, editor-in-chief of the Russian news outlet Republic, has been declared wanted by the Russian Interior Ministry. According to the ministry’s official website, a criminal case has been opened against Kolezev, though the exact charges are unclear.

Kolezev, who currently lives in Vilnius, wrote on Telegram that he doesn’t know what crime he stands accused of. “Some time ago, friends in Russia warned me that the FSB was commissioning examinations of some of my publications (though I was told that some experts refused to search for an offense, and for that I thank them). Most likely, it’s either disinformation about the Russian Armed Forces or discrediting the Russian Armed Forces,” he said.
