MOSCOW, May 13. /TASS/. The NGOs receiving grants from the United States are well known to Russia’s financial watchdog, Rosfinmonitoring, head of the Presidential Council on Civil Society and Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov told TASS on Wednesday, commenting on a recent article in Izvestia daily. The newspaper claims that the United States allocated $9.3 million to Russian NGOs last year and is trying to conceal the names of grant recipients.
"Regarding the fact that they do not disclose the names of the recipients, let them account to their Internal Revenue Service. Meanwhile, here in Russia, Rosfinmonitoring is well aware of who received the money and how much, up to the last cent," Fedotov noted. "I am glad when foreigners invest in Russia, as long as this does not undermine the country’s economy, political system and doesn’t affect environment. But, of course, it’s much better when investment in NGOs comes from the Russian government and the domestic business community," Fedotov said.
