The Committee of Concerned Scientists: Russian Mathematics PhD student convicted of charges without evidence

On November 22, 2021, the Committee of Concerned Scientists sent a letter to the President of the Russian Federation concerning the mathematics PhD student Azat Miftakhov who has been detained since February 2019 and recently convicted on charges of manufacture of explosives and breaking a political party window. These charges appear to be based on secret, unreliable witnesses and he has been subjected to torture. They ask the President to show good will and pardon Miftakhov given his young age and promise as a mathematician.
