"Since August we have been operating on the presidential grant, there were no foreign citizens among the organization's founders," the chairperson of "The Soldiers' Mothers of St. Petersburg" told ITAR-TASS.
Lawyer Vitaly Cherkasov, who works with the organization, said that the Prosecutor's office, which conducted the inspections for three months, had proved the fact of foreign financial support to the organization and that the organization was engaged in politics.
On August 29 the Russian Justice Ministry put the Soldiers' Mothers of St. Petersburg on the list of organizations branded "foreign agents" on the basis of documents submitted by the St. Petersburg Prosecutor's.
On the same day representatives of the Soldiers' Mothers declared they would challenge the resolution of the Justice Ministry in a court of law.
