The Soldiers' Mothers of St.Petersburg non-commerce organization has lodged a complaint with the Russian Justice Ministry, demanding to remove the organization from a list of non-commerce organizations branded "foreign agents", said lawyer Alexander Gorbachev.

"In recent days we have mailed an appeal to the Justice Ministry, asking to remove our organization from the list because we do not get foreign support," the lawyer said.
