RFE/RL freelance correspondent jailed for five days in Russia’s Daghestan, says lawyer

This article was originally published by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and is reprinted with permission. RFE/RL freelance correspondent Yulia Vishnevetskaya has been sentenced to five days in jail after being detained along with dozens of others by police in Daghestan, her lawyer, Aida Kasimova, announced on September 28. Vishnevetskaya was covering an unsanctioned rally against the Kremlin’s partial military mobilization to support troop levels in the war against Ukraine. Kasimova said Vishnevetskaya was charged with participating in an unsanctioned rally. RFE/RL President Jamie Fly called for Vishnevetskaya’s immediate release. “Yulia was only doing her job reporting the truth for the Russian people,” Fly said. “She should be released immediately.” Idris Yusupov and Sergei Ainbinder, two journalists who were also held, said police confiscated mobile phones from most of the detained journalists and have been keeping them in custody without access to lawyers since. Yusupov and Ainbinder said they were released about 17 hours after being detained. Yusupov told RFE/RL that more than 100 men and women remain in the police custody, adding that they all were charged with administrative misdemeanors and will face court hearings. The arrests came after hundreds rallied in Makhachkala on September 26, a day after another rally, attended mostly by women, ended with the detainment of about 120 people. Eight of the demonstrators detained on that day face criminal charges. Protests against the partial mobilization announced by President Vladimir Putin on September 21 have taken place in several towns and cities across Russia in recent days, including Moscow and St. Petersburg. According to OVD-Info, a human rights group that monitors political arrests in Russia, at least 2,398 people have been detained for protesting the mobilization since September 21. All public criticism of Russia’s “special military operation” is banned.

Homeless veteran housing project awarded $27 million

A housing project for homeless veterans has received $27 million in additional funding to complete its financing, which puts the project on the fast track for construction beginning within six months. Lightfighter Village in Marina will be a three-story, 71-unit housing structure on 2.3 acres giving homeless veterans a place to live in perpetuity with no transitional requirements while they continue to receive case management and access to support services. The village will be on Hayes Circle, within a half-mile of transit, employment, shopping and the Veterans Affairs/Department of Defense outpatient clinic as well as the Veterans Transition Center headquarters at Martinez Hall on what was once the Fort Ord Army base, which shuttered under the Base Realignment and Closure Act of Congress in 1994. Land from the closed Army base was conveyed to Marina, Seaside, Monterey, Del Rey Oaks and Monterey County. On Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the California Housing Accelerator Tier 2 awards. The $27,343,567 was made available through the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund established by the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The Lightfighter Village project, a partnership between the Veterans Transition Center and EAH Housing Inc., is now fully funded with $49,281,158. “This will expand VTC’s housing capacity by 70% with all new units being permanent supportive housing,” said Kurt Schake, Veterans Transition Center CEO. “Lightfighter Village will be dedicated to low- and extremely low-income veterans and their families.” Schake added that Lightfighter residents will be integrated into Veterans Transition Center programs and services, with added support from the Department of Veteran Affairs and Monterey County Behavioral Health. “Marina has been very supportive of this project, which is a partnership between EAH and VTC,” said Schake. “This affordable housing project will allow veterans to live and work in Monterey County, contributing to their well-being and the local economy.” The joint effort started in 2014 with the goal of developing permanent

Biden Admin Imposes ‘Swift and Severe’ Sanctions on Russia, Citing Putin’s Move to Annex Ukrainian Territories

The Biden administration on Friday imposed what it called “swift and severe” sanctions on Russia in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s move earlier in the day to annex four territories of Ukraine. The wide-ranging sanctions by the Treasury, State, and Commerce departments target more than 1,000 Russian people and companies, in retaliation for Putin’s annexation of the disputed regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia into the Russian Federation. Putin’s Friday declaration marked the biggest annexation in Europe since World War Two. The four regions represent some 15 percent of Ukrainian territory. Starting about a week ago, residents of those four Ukrainian regions held referendums, although U.S. and European Union officials claimed it was a sham….
