MOSCOW, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. An NGO can be closed only if it had advance knowledge that its donor was involved in drug trade, head of the commission for NGO development of the RF Presidential Council on Human Rights and Civil Society Development (HRC) Yelena Topoleva-Soldunovas said on Friday, commenting on media publications referring to the relevant bill drafted by the Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN).
The document provides for the compilation in Russia of a “black list” of foreign citizens who had been convicted for drug trafficking. The activity of an NGO that received donations from a blacklisted person will be suspended.
“It is clear that it is inadmissible to receive funds from drug dealers. But an NGO, receiving private donations may not know that it gets money from a drug dealer,” Topoleva-Soldunova told Itar-Tass. “It is necessary to make a reservation that an NGO can be closed only if it had the advance knowledge that its donor was involved in drug dealing,” she added.
