ST PETERSBURG, August 13 (Itar-Tass) - The Constitutional Court /СС/ said it has not received a complaint about the law which commits non-governmental organizations to register as "foreign agents" if they engage in political activity and receive funding from abroad.
"The СС has not received such a complaint yet," a spokesperson said.
The newspaper Kommersant reported on Tuesday that the Kostroma center for support of public initiatives had filed a complaint with the СС. It had been fined 300,000 rubles for arranging a "round table discussion" with U.S. diplomats.
The organization said the "NGO - foreign agents" law violates at least five articles of the Russian Constitution. It said it hoped the judges would clarify the term "political activity," because in case of its loose interpretation, practically any NGO can be prosecuted, according to the newspaper.
