Sergey Medvedev, an anti-war activist, informs about threats and pressure on him.

He also received threats by mail; and the author of the letter introduced himself as a law enforcer, the human rights project "OVD-Info"* has reported citing Mr Medvedev, who has added that policemen came and interrogated his neighbours.
