MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. The Yuri Levada Analytical Center non-commercial organization, one of Russia’s major pollsters, may appeal the Justice Ministry’s decision to list it as a foreign agent, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"I don’t think it possible to comment on this decision as the Justice Ministry operated on certain ideas and facts," Peskov said. "The Levada Center has the opportunity to file an appeal using the necessary instruments to defend any viewpoint."
The Russian Justice Ministry said on Monday that the pollster founded in 2003 was listed "as a non-commercial organization with the foreign agent functions during an unscheduled document check.".
