MOSCOW, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) has drafted a bill according to which it is planned to close down all Russian NGOs, receiving funding from foreign drug traffickers.
“This bill is aimed at restricting the entry into the country of foreign persons involved in drug trade. According to one its provisions, it introduces restrictions on financing of Russian non-profit organizations by foreign persons that are included in the list entry for which is prohibited,” deputy head of the Federal Drug Control Service for public media relations Vladimir Sinelshchikov told the Izvestia daily. “This document is ideologically similar to the recently adopted ‘Dima Yakovlev law,’ some of its provisions can still be refined in the course of discussion in the relevant instances.”
“Under the draft law, which is called “On measures against persons involved in illicit transnational trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances,” Russia will make a black list of foreigners who had been convicted of drug trafficking. Foreign officials whose actions contributed to the release of drug dealers will also be put on the list.
“Part 1 of Article 3 of the new bill states that the operation of an NGO that received a donation from a foreign entity, the entry for which into Russia is prohibited, will be suspended. The NGO will be required to remedy the violation, otherwise the organization will be liquidated by court decision,” the newspaper writes. The Russian Justice Ministry, which performs the functions of registering NGOs, will regulate issues related to the suspension of NGOs activity and their subsequent liquidation.
