MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. Police are carrying out a search at a scientology center located to the northeast of Moscow, a law enforcement source told TASS on Wednesday.
"Today the law enforcement agencies have come to conduct a search in the Center for managing activity on spreading dianetics and scientology located in the town of Losino-Petrovsky, in the Moscow Region," the source said.
The investigation is underway as part of a criminal case into illegal entrepreneurship launched by the Federal Security Service in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.
Dianetics and scientology is a religious and philosophic belief created in the United States in early 1950s by American author Lafayette Ron Hubbard. The scientific community does not recognize it as a science.
In Russia, some scientology files have been included in the federal list of extremism-related materials and their storage and dissemination is prohibited in the country.
