In 2019, a criminal case was opened against a resident of Omsk, Dinara Dyusekeyeva, for believing in God. In November 2020, the court found her guilty of participating in extremist activities and sentenced her to 2 years of probation.

Dinara was born in 1982 in the village of Leningradskoye (Kazakhstan). She has a younger sister and brother. His mother and father are now retired. In 1987, the family moved to Omsk, Russia. As a child, Dinara was fond of basketball, volleyball, running, and cycling.

After graduating from school, Dinara studied at the Omsk Agricultural College as a veterinary paramedic. Later she entered the Omsk State Agrarian University, where she received the specialty of a veterinarian. Until 2011, she worked as a veterinarian in a food corporation, and then in a large meat processing enterprise. In her free time, Dinara likes to play volleyball, run, sing karaoke, and solve crossword puzzles. He studies the Kazakh language.

From a young age, Dinara was concerned about deep questions about life, and she began to look for answers to them in the Bible. Studying this ancient book, Dinara admired its wisdom and accuracy. She liked the biblical teaching that there is a true God who always speaks the truth and reveals what will happen in the future.

Dinara's relatives are very upset because of the unfair sentence. They know better than anyone that this peaceful girl has nothing to do with extremism.

Case history

In 2018, the Polyakovs were arrested in Omsk. During the arrest, Sergei was beaten and forced to wipe his blood off the floor. The couple spent five months in solitary confinement and three months under house arrest. In 2019, the Investigative Committee again searched the houses of believers, and Gaukhar Bektemirova and Dinara Dyusekeyeva became defendants in the case. The court considered the case for almost a year. Evidence of guilt was even sought in cartoons seized during the search. In November 2020, Sergey Polyakov was sentenced to three years in a penal colony, and three women were given suspended sentences: Anastasiya Polyakova—two and a half years; Gaukhar Bektemirova—two years and three months; Dinara Dyusekeyeva—two years. In May 2021, the appeal court upheld the verdict, and in June 2022, this verdict was upheld by the cassation court. In November 2022, Sergei Polyakov was released after serving his full term in a penal colony, and in January 2023, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation partially granted Polyakov’s appeal regarding the term of his sentence.
