Putin introduced draft law on exclusion of NGOs from foreign agents’ registry to State Duma

04 February 2015

Moscow, 4 February — TASS. President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin introduced a draft law on exclusion of NGOs from the foreign agents’ registry to the State Duma. The relevant information is given in the e-database of the lower chamber of the Parliament.

As it is stated in the explanatory note to the draft law, the current laws stipulates only the procedure as to inclusion of non-commercial organisations into the registry of NGOs functioning as foreign agents, and the possibility to strike it off from the list when such function is terminated has not been provided for.

"There are such NGOs which believe that they are included in this registry without reason. Without this law they could have made out their case for a thousand times, but they wouldn’t have been excluded from the registry," Ms Pamfilova said.

There is a range of requirements an NGO should meet to be excluded from the registry. Among them — no any sponsorship from abroad during minimum a year before the application, or refusal from and return of the relevant international grants within three months from the date the NGO is included into the foreign agents’ registry.
