MOSCOW, September 15. /TASS/. Russia’s Justice Ministry said on Tuesday it has removed the Liberal Mission scientific foundation led by prominent economist Yevgeny Yasin from the "foreign agents" list.
The ministry said on its website that the decision was made on September 11. The reason for the move is that the organization "has stopped fulfilling the functions of a foreign agent."
"I’m satisfied with this decision, but they should not have included [the foundation] in the registry. We received no foreign funds and we did only what is in line with the Constitution," Yasin told TASS commenting on the decision.
"It’s the triumph of truth," he said.
Yasin said the ministry’s decision could come amid his appointment in August as a member of the Russian presidential council for civil society and human rights.
The Liberal Mission was included by the Russian Justice Ministry in the NGO register of "foreign agents" on May 25 along with the beleaguered Dynasty Foundation of businessman Dmitry Zimin
Russia’s parliament adopted a law in 2012 that required NGOs to register as "foreign agents" with the Justice Ministry if they engage in "political activity" and receive funding from abroad.
