MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Prosecutor General's Office /PGO/ says three non-governmental organisations it has checked are extremist.
The office had opened six criminal cases on extremist activity, a department head, Alexei Zhafayrov, told the Presidential Council Human Rights and Civil Society /SPCh/ on Thursday. Prosecutors had also exposed 500 violations of legislation by NGOs.
Zhafayrov said that more than 2,200 NGOs in Russia received foreign funding. Of those, the PGO had checked more than 1,000, focused not only on funding issues. Twenty-two NGOs were recognised as "foreign agents," Zhafyarov said.
Under law passed in the summer of 2012, a "foreign agent" is a Russian NGO which receives funding or property from foreign states or international or foreign organisations. The classification also covers organisations taking part in Russian politics in the interests of foreign sources.
