Russian Legislation Close to Cancelling Undesirable Foreign NGOs NGOs

Russian lawmakers have backed legislation that could further restrict the work of international organisations in the country by tagging them as “undesirable” for the state.
Voting in the second of three readings on Friday, the Duma lower house of parliament supported a bill to label some foreign non-governmental organisations as carrying out “undesirable activities”.
The legislation could limit the work of international NGOs, already caught up in the Kremlin’s clampdown on civil society during Vladimir Putin’s third presidential term.
