MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federation Council on Wednesday, October 31, approved legislation that imposes large fines for violation of the NGO law.

According to the amendments to the Code of Administrative Offences, if a commercial organisation with the status of a foreign agent has failed to provide information to the supervisory body or did it late, it will face a fine of 10,000 to 30,000 roubles for officials and from 100,000 to 300,000 roubles for legal entities.

If such organisation continues to operate despite the decision to suspend its activity, a fine will be 30,000 to 50,000 roubles for an NGO’s organisers and from 3,000 to 5,000 roubles for its participants.

If an NGO having the status of a foreign agent publishes information about itself in mass media without mentioning its status, a fine will be up to 500,000 roubles (for legal entities).

“Malicious avoidance” in submitting documents for inclusion in the register will be punished by a fine of up to 300,000 roubles or compulsory work during 480 hours or “corrective labour for up to two years or imprisonment for the same term”.
