Russia won't charge Jewish group or anti-Semites

Following the police investigation into the distribution of a medieval Jewish text, Russian prosecutors have announced that they will not bring charges against the Congress of Jewish Organizations. Nor will they prosecute the signers of a letter that called for Judaism to be outlawed. From Interfax:

The Prosecutor General's Office has confirmed that it will not open a criminal case against the authors of a letter that called for the banning of Jewish organizations in Russia, nor will it act against the publication of a book on Jewish law.

"An investigation staged in accordance with a decision of the Moscow Prosecutor's Office related to statements by two groups of citizens confirmed that the decision [not to open the cases] was legal and reasonable," First Deputy Prosecutor Yury Biryukov told Interfax on Tuesday.
