MOSCOW, July 26 (UPI) -- A Scientology center near Moscow is the target of a criminal case and charges of inciting hatred, punishable by up to five years in prison, authorities said.

Russian investigators say documents and literature confiscated at the center in Shchyolkovo, northeast of Moscow, promote extremism, The Moscow Times reported Monday.

In April, a Siberian court added works by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard to a federal list of extremist materials, making all Scientology centers open to prosecution, the newspaper said.
