Glukhovsky On Russia’s Wanted List

Popular Russian SF author Dmitry Glukhovsky has been added to a wanted list by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, according to multiple news organizations. Russian outlet Pravda said, “The writer is charged with committing a crime under Article 280.3 (‘Public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation’) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.” The law carries sentences up to 15 years for those convicted of intentionally spreading “false” news about the Russian military.

According to Reuters, Glukhovsky stands by his social media statements: “I am ready to repeat everything said there: ‘Stop the war! Admit that this is a war against an entire nation and stop it!'”
