MOSCOW, January 04, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Justice Ministry has registered the first regional branch of Popular Front /ONF/ in Lipetsk. All ONF branches will have to go through the registration procedure in the beginning of this year, the ONF press service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
"All ONF regional branches will go through the state registration procedure in the first quarter of 2014. The Lipetsk branch was the first to complete it," the press service said.
"We've passed the registration stage. The next step is to appoint head of the executive committee of the regional branch and open the ONF office in Lipetsk," the press service quoted representative of the ONF regional headquarters Nikolai Miloslavsky as saying.
The ONF set up its regional branches in all Russian regions last year. In 2014, the ONF is expected to open regional executive committees across the whole country.
At present, the ONF only has the Federal Executive Committee as a full-fledged functioning body. It is headed by Andrei Bocharov.
